I'm always happy to make a new friend BUT I don't randomly add people I don't know.





I cull - primarily LJs of people who never update anymore (usually a year), never comment, and/or with whom I am in touch with on other social media platforms. As always, if you feel I've made an error - contact me.

There is no drama - I thought you'd been kidnapped by aliens.

Writer's Block: Kiss me, I’m Irish!

How are you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day?


I don't celebrate it, but I don't NOT celebrate it.

I'm scottish - not a drop of irish blood in me.
I'm pagan, so celebrating the catholic saint credited with killing off pagans and forcing conversions isn't such a 'draw'

That being said - I love a good party, I love 'good' irish beer (not that green shit), I love Celtic music. and I look great in green.

more Happy 2012!

You Are a Leopard



You are at times a bit irresponsible. You prefer living in the moment to worrying about tomorrow.

You are very open to the world. You try to say yes to as many opportunities as possible.



Your charms have been known to get you in trouble. You're a little too alluring for your own good.

People often think that you may have nine lives. You always seem to escape from trouble unharmed.

Writer's Block: Collect 'em all

witch street
Do you collect anything? If so, what do you collect, and what made you start your collection?


No, I don't collect anything, but I do have collections.

You see people collect things on my behalf because they think I collect something or other.

I have a tin commemorative collection. It all started when I needed something to keep some beads in - I grabbed a tin my Mom was going to throw out. Then I got some buttons given to me in a small tin, when we bashed down a wall I found an old (early 1900s) talc powder in the wall, and I collected change and kept it in a tin... eventually people started saving me tins, giving me tins, buying me tins. I now have a tin collection.

I have a tea cup collection. When I got to an age my Mom started collecting pretty china tea cups for me so that when I got married I'd have a lovely collection for all the tea parties I'd be hosting. Then when my grandmother died I got hers too. So now I have a collection of gorgeous, delicate, tea cups.

i have an elephant collection. Both my mother and my grandmother separately collected little elephant figurines. I inherited my grandmother's and when my parents downsized I got Moms'. I now have an elephant collection (and a cool Woo story to go with them)

I was collecting vintage books by specific authours - but then people bought them all for me (not ALL, but the ones that I wanted).

I do collect books - but it's not a real collection - I just keep ALL books. They are my friends. I thought I collectedcook books, but I don't. If fact I'm actually considering getting rid of a bunch cuz I've never used (and won't) many of them.

there you go... people collect stuff for me and I store them in boxes in the basement.

I need a chuckle today...

Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter.

The man at the counter asked the older boy, "Son, how old are you?"

"Eight," the boy replied.

The man continued, "do you know what these are used for?"

The boy replied, "not exactly, but they aren't for me, they're for him. He's my brother. He's four. We saw on TV that if you use these you would be able to swim and ride a bike. Right now, he can't do either."

"Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles." - Prov 24:17



I think all this patriotic flag waving and celebrating (and yes, canucks are doing it too) is sickening - takes "us" down to "their" level.

Does anyone think that this death will solve or end anything?  OBL needed to be brought to justice to be sure - but to celebrate and rejoice in a death?  that's not right, especially if we truly believe ourselves to be what we seem to think we are.

We've made a martyr and more innocent blood will be shed.


A friend just posted this food for thought.

"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that" Martin Luther King, Jr.
