Let me be your highway diamond, your gem along the way

you’ve got to be sure
when you turn out that light
that it’s going to turn on again
you’ve got to be your good friend

somebody loves you
and you’re gonna make it through

Eels (Mark Oliver Everett) “Somebody Loves You” from Shootenanny!
ROFL!  Heck, yes!  I always said I was going to be a Fairy Princess when I grew up, and they get to wear crowns (part of the uniform).  Maybe I could totally make that title part of the alphabet soup that goes after my name.  Then I could be Meg Miscellany MPH, MA (Public Policy &Management ), FP.  Yeah, FP is the coolest part of that, for sure.👑

underappreciated characters: john knightley
(emma by jane austen)

John Knightley… The Mr. Palmer of Emma! You know, this just makes me think that it’s Mr. Darcy who is the sullen, snarky male curmudgeon in P&P, and as Austen’s heroines always get their man, perhaps P&P should be reconsidered in male terms, as the novel where the curmudgeon lucks out and doesn’t end up with a silly wife (let’s face it, Mrs. Palmer is ridiculous and Isabella Knightley is too much like Mr. Woodhouse to be sensible.). I bet someone (or several someones) out there has written a very nice article or three, if not a whole text on the treatment of male sullen snarkiness, priggery, snobbish behavior and the exceptionality of Fitzwilliam Darcy in Austen’s work. If I were not so lazy I would search those works out and read them!

I like cancelled plans. And empty bookstores. I like rainy days and thunderstorms. And quiet coffee shops. I like messy beds and over-worn pajamas. Most of all, I like the small joys that a simple life brings.

Hand dyed scarves / bandanas by KateBatikShop

These are pretty, but seeing them tied like these just makes me think that I’ve been “left behind” and that all the fashion bloggers and bandito train robbers got taken to heaven. Though if that were really true their other clothes would be here too… Revising feelings… It makes me think I’ve been “left behind” but pervy-near-nudist fashion bloggers and bandito train robbers got taken to heaven. End result: I get some nice scarves! Yay!

The Gap Between Who You Are And Who You Want To Be

Nothing can be beautiful.

Not all the spaces inside you need to be filled.

Who you still have the chance to be, lives in the spaces you give yourself.

As I’ve said, I’m not very assertive, so I need to be better at the last bit.  However, I had to post this because this is great use of cross stitch.  I heartily approve

unicef:


168 children have died and over 1,100 have been seriously injured, maimed and even terribly burned. No child should have to suffer the terrifying impact of such violence. We are urging all sides to stop this violence for the sake of the children, who are suffering the worst. 

This is the sanest commentary on the current Gaza situation that I have heard.
