That’s just not right, man. It’s just not right.

Post for a 2nd time this year. I don't know why I have such a problem with writing lately. Even my journal collection lies empty and unused. It's a small miracle if I manage to write an entry on my calendar. Oh well!

I don't use this journal enough, and I've certainly been paying for it for a while! I find myself reading everyone else's entries and never getting around to writing my own posts.

What in the world happened to Godawful Fan Fiction?

I also really miss Fork in the Eye.

Haven't been here in a while, so I'm just posting a favorite pic. I've no idea where I got it.

I'd really like to find this Chanel purse. Any ideas? I want a clearer photo so I can make my own. It isn't on the current Chanel site.



The results thanks to lethsuanach. I just like to look at it without clicking on the link.

Between Shelby and the pups playing tug-of-war, my sad quilt has been through the ringer. I don't have any of these fabrics any longer, but hopefully I can replace them with something similar.

I'm trying to figure out how to put this vintage rucksack together. The place I bought it suggests it's Norwegian, but I've found nothing that looks even remotely similar on the Internet --as in sewing techniques and the hardware and webbing on the bag.



This is how I started putting it together, and then came to a complete halt.



The bag has these metal clips.



This is the suspenders. It has loops that are a bit crunched at the end, suggesting they hook to the metal clips somehow. Back in picture one, you can see how the straps appear to fit perfectly through the guides in the suspenders.



This is the front and the bottom of the bag.

There is also a 2" wide belt, and a ton of web gear. Anybody have an idea?

I just read "Utah!" by Dana Fuller Ross, and I think this is the worst drivel to ever cross a piece of paper. I can't believe they publish this crap.

This is just plain scary. http://www.seedsofdeception.com/Public/Home/index.cfm

I wish the website had a little more information. The radio interviews are particularly enlightening though, and make you want to NOT eat.

Mom's coming for Mom's Day dinner. Now I have to pick out a meal for that too! I think I'll probably go with ham --as in the ham we didn't fix for Easter.

I just subscribed to Victoria Magazine! I'll have to figure out the story of it going out of print, and why it came back. At any rate, I hope it's as awesome as it used to be!

Edit... The rebirthing of Victoria magazine

I agree to take in 2 cockatiels. TWO! This is what I end up with. Worse, I've got some damn cold and I just want to get rid of this woman and finally realize she does not mean to leave her cheap-ass cages here, she aims to take them back home with her.

This means I'm stuck with having to transfer 6 wild 'tiels into SOMETHING and then get rid of the woman. Hence, the cockaTOO cage they're now in, and the numerous bloody bites on my fingers. The food dishes do not suit. It's not that there's not enough food, it's that there are huge fights because 3 birds can't share one of these sized dishes. Especially this one wiley female who seems to take joy in causing fights.

All of this is not helped by Zazu the B&G macaw who A) wants to play with all their toys from the top so every once in a while there's a house-wide CLANG when one hits the floor of the cage, and B) If the toys don't suit at that moment, she opens their doors and yanks their food dishes out onto the floor. (She's the dogs' hero!)

And I'm still sick as a damn dog (where did that phrase come from, anyway?) and I'm not in the mood to move enormous cages around and find something to put these birds in. They're fine for now.

SECOND:

If you're at all into Firefly Fanfic, here is an EXCELLENT author. I'm generally a Rayne shipper, but Leven writes mostly for Wash/Zoe. So if you're a fan of the series and BDM, you'll be a fan of this fanfic author, no matter what ship you're sailing.

I got a good sale today! Two Ator decks and custom bags to go with them. These are my favorites –and I’m always excited to see what cards people choose for the bags. Cards were the 10 of Cups, and The Hermit... both firsts for me!

I’m just glad that I’ve got everything together again after moving and my dad’s death. The one negative on my eBay feedback really horrifies me, but there’s nothing that can be done about it now that the time is up to take care of it. Thank goodness my dry spell is over, and I hope I start selling regularly again.

Basically, my store was shut down because I got 1 negative although I've got over 260 positives. I guess that since I hadn't sold as much in the past month, the negative I got was a huge percentage of my sales.

I could probably bitch and get reinstated, because it's obviously ridiculous (if a live human being actually looks at it), but I'd have to re-list all of my store items and I'm just not going to do it.

So... I get to sit here for days listing everything handmade on Etsy!

It's kind of a bummer that some of my better selling stuff like tarot decks and stuff can't be listed on Etsy, but hopefully it will pay off in the long run!

So how cool are these? We had an outbreak of warm (71*) after several days of fairly cool temps, and then we got these. They're flying around in swarms and would actually be scary if they weren't labeled a beneficial insect.

You are The Hermit

Prudence, Caution, Deliberation.

The Hermit points to all things hidden, such as knowledge and inspiration,hidden enemies. The illumination is from within, and retirement from participation in current events.

The Hermit is a card of introspection, analysis and, well, virginity. You do not desire to socialize; the card indicates, instead, a desire for peace and solitude. You prefer to take the time to think, organize, ruminate, take stock. There may be feelings of frustration and discontent but these feelings eventually lead to enlightenment, illumination, clarity.

The Hermit represents a wise, inspirational person, friend, teacher, therapist. This a person who can shine a light on things that were previously mysterious and confusing.

My cat died.
Blackberry was nearly 30 years old, but that still doesn't make it feel any better when they go. He had a good long life --as spoiled as possible.

Try this experiment.

Put your dog and your spouse in the trunk of the car for an hour.
When you open the trunk, who is really happy to see you??

Our lake is incredibly low right now. Since I went through the trouble to spruce these up and upload them, I may as well post them while I'm at it. I think Shasta is possibly one of the ugliest lakes ever. It's never full, and this iron-rich clay surrounds the entire thing --making it impossible to be nicely comfortable on the shore.

It's also a nightmare for canoeing, because everyone is trying to out-blast each other on their ski boats that have speakers the size of small import cars. Renting a houseboat is the best way to enjoy Shasta Lake.

We now have a dog who is on medication indefinitely for incontinence (at only 2 years old.)

Unfortunately, you give one dog their medication and every other dog has to have a "treat" as well.

So not only are we paying the monthly bill for Ty's pills, we have to buy treats so nobody feels left out --and those are considerably more than Ty's pills.
