Aw, hell, for once I do feel like going to the flix on a Friday with Jbird, but that's out, because he's having his eyes dilated this afternoon.

I stopped by Dr. Lenahan's office to check it out and see if I'd think I'd like to apply to go back into Optical work. Never mind. Man, that office is packed to where they have to squeeze past each other to get to anything, and all the frames are in locked cases, so you can't really let anyone browse, there's no station at which to let a person sit and do measurements, either. Plus, I told the guy who brought out some frames for me that I would like to see about making an appt. He walked up to the desk, bummed a cig from one woman, danced around and chatted with two other of the gals, but NOT ONCE did he bother to tell any of them that I wanted to make an appt. I was completely ignored. I waited for the one person to finish making a payment, and finally one woman asked if I needed help... five minutes later. er.. I don't think I'd like it there after all. There was one cute young woman who chatted on with me about glasses and is sure that we are daughters of different mothers, but I think being around her all day would be nerve-wracking.. way, way too high energy.

Ah well, I have my resume submitted to two law offices, so we'll see if anything comes of that.

At least this made the other half of my day:

Oh, and Naomi made blog entries documenting her amazing process of her daughter Lily's Marie Antoinette costume. That's a princess costume I can certainly admire!
Thrifted sheets and no historical costuming experience of this level!

I don't think I've been quite so entertained by a bodybuilder's routine as this guy:

Today is for humor. I'm working on mine, and these are helping:

Sad Etsy Boyfriends (some of these must be REgretsy!)

Not so much humor, here, but yes, eliminating these four words from my everyday speech.
I discovered that I often used self-limiting words before I even had a chance to think about them.

And finally, back to funny, How the 1% twerk:

In a reminder of the male Avengers posed like the female, Ducati came up with this photoshoot!

(No, I'm still me.. and I did steal this from a FB meme, please read it completely).

When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

Then He will turn to the Congressional Republicans and say, ‘Seriously, dudes, what the fuck? You guys wouldn’t shut up about how much you loved me, but when I was hungry, you cut funding for my food; I was thirsty, and you blocked laws against dumping toxic materials into my drinking water; I was a stranger, and you pushed for harsh immigration policies that broke up my family; I was sick, and you said you’d rather drive the entire US government into a brick wall than ensure that I get health care; I was in prison, and you pushed for privatization schemes that rewarded companies for creating inhumane conditions for me. For real – have you guys ever even *read* any of my stuff? I’m pretty sure it’s available online.’

It's been a rough start to the week, what with Pablo back at kitteh hospital on Saturday. Urinary issues again, but not a blockage, it seems he's not able to empty his bladder fully and it's backed up. I did get to see him yesterday and he was One Very Nuzzly Kitty. He'll come home today and it's back on the Cosequin for good. Thankfully, my insistence on his diet was correct and he has NO, as in ZERO, struvite in his urine. So, suck it, Hills, there are better foods out there.

In party news, I had two parties this weekend, and did right at $1600 in sales! That brings me around $600 income, not bad for weekend gigs, eh?
We also got a new brochure with a harness in it.. (aboutdamntime) and with wording that is all women inclusive.. yay!
Passion Parties marketing had traditionally been a bit slanted toward hetero couples, with us changing wording as we see fit to be inclusive, but they have changed with the times. The new brochure is for *every* woman, with plans for a brochure geared toward men as well. I'm glad to be part of progressive movement!
Want to see it? PM me or comment on my Rae's Passion page and I'll get one for you.

In other good news, I woke up hungry today. This is a Very Good Thing, because it means I'm getting my liver enzymes back in balance. Also, exploring various toxicities, such as copper (old water pipes, anyone?)
57 days sober.

And for your entertainment, I give you Patrick Stewart's native dialect:

In good news, Daddy is feeling a bit better. Still breathless at the least exertion and fighting feeling terribly down, but he sounded better after I talked to him yesterday. We're going to see him for his birthday tomorrow, and bringing some yummy Mex food. Hence, starting the Whole30 a day or so late :) Worth it.

I've convinced Jbird to go to Olathe movies today. He is leery of the Turnpike and KC/Legends/anywhere near Leavenworth County right now still. I don't know yet what we'll see, but I'm excited to go.. oh for comfort in a theater!

Oh on that note.. Reds2 Meh. Good enough that I'm glad we saw it, but not nearly as engaging as the first. Helen Mirren, though, is still as kick-ass as ever.

I've ordered a bunch of new inventory for the Rae's Passion demo bag. Made two sales on private consultations, and so I aim to make back the investment asap. Sold two of the remote control Gizm-Os at once!


(oh, and if anyone has considered doing this, they have the demo kit at half price today thru August 4. $99 for a few hunnert bucks worth of products, let me know!)
I'm considering making a splash page for that website because I don't much care for the official PP page. Any suggestions or ideas of what would be of interest are most welcome.

I'm still hoping to recruit a few good people to host parties for me. Doesn't have to be big, just a few friends over drinks is an ideal party for me. I have some other ideas, too, since I just picked up a super lil webcam on craigslist cheap.

And I have gorgeous flowers on my table.. thank you, sweetheart, and fancy toes, too.



Speaking of guilty pleasures...
And .. I know it's an older one, but I still love this.. count the guilty pleasures!

My thanks to [ profile] bart_calendar for the Best Wedding Photo Ever!

I am in weather crisis mode. The pond is overflowing, the backyard is a mush pit, the guttering needs clearing, the rain barrel is overflowing. Yikes. Home ownership is troublesome.

It's no little-known fact that I hate running, and "exercise" but oh! I might get fit or die laughing from Prancercise!

And the story here... you're welcome!
