I'm so lucky

or maybe that should be fortunate.

It's been several months since I told a friend about something that happened many years ago. We knew each other at the time, but nothing more than a nod in the other's direction.

A couple of weeks ago, I brought up something else from that time. He can't even think about that time period or the people he knew. He had tears in his eyes just thinking about it. If only he was there he said. It would have never happened. Some of the players he knew, was friends with. He hates that he knew people like that. The other players, even I don't know who, so he wants to not even think of the people we knew then, cause he knows that two of them were probably people he knew.

Cryptic I know, but that's all I'm prepared to say.

Ya got any cheese to go with my whine

I'm in a crappy mood.

I feel like I'm coming down with something. I really don't have time for this. Leave March 1 for NYC. Things for the competition need to be done. Going to class, doing homework, drive time, children, and fitting in time for sleep. I slept wrong like 3 nights ago and have had this crick in my neck since. I can't turn to the left. Makes for difficult driving.

For once in I don't know how long, I did not have to drive anywhere today. I was going to do some serious catching up on homework. Well, sleep decided nope, enough is enough, I'm claiming my time whether you like it or not. I've had my 2-3 hours sleep for the day, one part of me is saying no, it can't be bed time, the other part of me is screaming, yes, yes, it's bed time. I think I'm gonna go ahead and let that side win, even if I just lay there watching Discovery Times or History Int.

Seems that for those of us who enjoy a drink, have a type of liquor that they need to stay the hell away from all together.

For me, it is dark liquors, including red wine. That shit makes me crazy.

A friend has to stay away from any hard liquor. Beer and wine don't bother them, but the hard stuff, makes them crazy.

For another friend, it is wine and vodka, again, crazy.

I know many others that have a type of alcohol that just makes them crazy. I'm going to have to check into exactly why. I have a general idea, but, I must know why.

So, " The Masterpieces of French Painting from The Metropolitan Museum of Art: 1800-1920 " is showing at the MFAH,

I really cannot wait to go. When in NYC last year, I went to the MOMA and I could not get enough of it.

"Chiho Aoshima: City Glow", "Fit for a King: English Silver from the Collection of George S. Heyer, Jr.", "Hélio Oiticica: The Body of Color", and "The Target Collection of American Photography: A Century in Pictures" are some other current exhibits I want to check out.

Some other upcoming exhibits, "Arms and Armor from the Ancient World" , "The Quest for Immortality: Hidden Treasures of Ancient Egypt", and "Pompeo Batoni: "The Best Painter in Italy" fall into the must see category.

more today than yesterday

This is just so very apropos today

More Today Than Yesterday
( Spiral Starecase )

I don't remember what day it was
I didn't notice what time it was
All I know is that I fell in love with you
And if all my dreams come true
I'll be spending time with you

Every day's a new day in love with you
With each day comes a new way of loving you
Every time I kiss your lips my mind starts to wander
And if all my dreams come true
I'll be spending time with you

Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterday
But, darling, not as much as tomorrow


Tomorrow's date means springtime's just a day away
Cupid, we don't need ya now, be on your way
I thank the lord for love like ours that grows ever stronger
And I always will be true
I know you feel the same way too

Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterdayBut only half as much as tomorrow

I don't wanna

I don't want to study. Mid-terms are this next week. I'm really tired of looking at books. Facts, figures, stocks, bonds, networks, ISDN, frame relay, electrical systems, plumbing, and Spanish-cierto, falso, bibliografo, son las medianoche, son las tres y veinti y cinco, el profesor es el agujerear, abra el libro.

Tireme por favor!!!

FDA won't require label for products from clones


When the government approves food from cloned animals, expected in the next year, the Food and Drug Administration doesn't plan special labels. Government scientists have found no difference between clones and conventional animals.

And why the hell not?

What is so freakin hard about placing a label on the food so that people can choose whether or not they wish to injest something. Why should it be a guessing game? The government pisses me off to no end. They get all in our business for some things and then beg off on others.

Food supply affects the entire nation. I am so disgusted by our government and their bending to the various PAC's.
