into mass murder believing that they are blessed and charged by God to
do so are wholly deceived.

about her trip to the US back in October.
This picture reminds me of ghost gums in Western Australia,
even though it's oak trees in winter in New Jersey. The same starkness
to them, but still lovely.
I wear a fleece, and Adelaide loops inside of that. Today she decided
the mousepad and my hand was the place to be, and mewled piteously every
time I tried to type.
Until she gave up and went to sleep in a box of computer
crap. That black thing she's resting on is my old Palm cradle. She sleeps
in the most uncomfortable positions and places and on things that just
tweak my back looking at them, then bounces up, fresh as though she's
been sleeping on goosedown.
so eloquently puts it, the Period Fairy visited and left a big red gift.
Which would explain some of the flying off the handle at all and sundry
yesterday. Network Solutions has some luck, fucking me about on a day
when I am grumpy from a cold and unknowingly PMSing. I'm suprised I
didn't have the power to actually reach down the phone and tear them
limb from limb, with that conjunction of powers. Turns out a host of
other people hate Network Solutions

of their horror stories.
didn't have any cramps, and couldn't work it out til I thought of all
my cold dosings. 2-3 Aspirin, 3-4 times a day, cough medecines and various
other analgesics, the cramps were dead before they had a chance.

an irrecoverable hard drive meltdown.
#1. I click on it to delete, and it requests through Outlook a receipt
me? That takes cojones and then some. If you use Outlook, and want
to make sure receipts aren't automatically sent, go to tools, Options,
then receipts. Make sure your settings are either "never send
a read receipt" or "notify me for each read receipt request".
As I'm a nosey control freaker, I have mine set to notify, which is
how I found out this little spammer trick.
#2. I get an email with the following;
Browsing through the CNN website I came across this CNN article
which seems to be about you:
careful note of that URL, it's leading you to think it's a CNN URL,
but really it'll take you to the website listed after the ampersand
"@", which I've replaced with a commentary URL, no free
link for you spammer scum. Sneaky little shit. I'm tempted to send
them my own URL with a carefuly crafted and customised "Fuck
you" page. All set up on a free geocities account with no relation
to any of my emails, they can spam away to their hearts content.
it with my own domain, and it works that way too, so you could use
it for fun, to make people think they were going to CNN, but send
them to a gag page.
a nice time in the later afternoon, catching up with first Cameron,
then Dreama on ICQ. Both
are foodies, and got me hungry, and searching for something hot,
but not scratchy, and with lots of flavour, as all the cough lozenges
and cold medecines are messing about my sense of taste and smell.
I settled on soup, with at least the rice
vermicelli noodles that have been knocking abot my kitchen
for an age.
here for my mirror if it's not there anymore) for Rice
Vermicelli with Bok Choi and Cilantro.
did an Amanda on the recipe, because I didn't have everything
they wanted, and I didn't want to faff about with multiple pots
and bowls and folderol.
did soak the noodles and the dried mushrooms, as that's a must
do. While they soaked, I sliced up two small white onions (no
green/spring onions on hand) and fried them in the vege oil. Added
in the garlic, but sliced into large slivers, and fried for a
minute or so, with jarred ginger. Stirred the mushrooms through
that, sauted to mix everything together, then deglazed the pan
with the stock, and added in the rest of the two (8oz, low salt)
cans. Added in some fresh ginger that I forgot I had, peeled and
chopped into large chunks. I love fresh ginger, and with a cold,
more and bigger bits is better.
diced the chicken breast and added that into the now simmering
water, making sure it was cooked through before adding some sliced
on the diagonal celery, a spoonful of chimmichirri
(no coriander or bok choi on hand), and the drained vermicelli.
Cooked that through for the 10 seconds it needed, then served
recipe for me, for the most part, is a list of suggestions, i
can take it from there.
