I've been writing tonight so I have my music file open. Thought you might want to check out what I listen to when I'm writing. I know it's an eclectic mix, but it's MY music. I totally am a child of the 80's. lol. And you don't even want to see my 70's music. Which includes Shaun Cassidy, The Defranco family, and if you dig in store room, waaaay in the back underneath all the year books and baby clothes there is a record case full of ....gasp....Osmond albums. Hell, I even have an autographed one from Shaun Cassidy. lol. I'm a big old dork, I've never denied it.

But, you can totally see in my choice of tunes that I was not into metal or acid rock. lol.

I have everything from:
Karla Devito
Kim Wilde
Olivia Newton John
The Sherbs
Elton John
Counting Crows
Pat Benatar
Laura Branigan
Soul Asylum
Bob Seger
Flock of Seagulls
Toni Basil
Dar Williams
The Ten Tenors
Apollo 100
Adam Ant
And Hanson. No Hanson snarky comments will be accepted. lol.

And these are just the few I listen to the most. There is one Beach Boys. One Impalas. One Jessica Andrews, a few Tim McGraw. Depends on what part of the story I'm working on. When I'm meditating, the Apollo 100 song, Joy, always helps me to connect. It is similar to a meditation tape we were taught with.
So, there this is what I'm listening too.

Class last night was very relaxing.
We actually had spirit class while in a hot tub. How cool is that?
Have to admit though the visions and meditation wasn't as intense as it usually is, I think because I was IN a hot tub. Water. Water up to my chin. Have I mentioned I don't like deep water. It just takes my breath away. But I did enjoy the company and the tub while I knew I wasn't gonna slide under or bubble away. lol.

We listened to a CD of classical type music that was recorded from secret musical notes found on paintings painted inside a church. At the moment I can't remember what they were called but they were beautiful.

When it came to messages and visions, I do have to admit to seeing a woman inside a church, lighting a candle. She was dressed royally, with one of those high, white, collars that look like an air filter around her neck. Queen Victoria like?

Then there was the other woman I saw who was dressed in red velvet. She was very sad while standing in front of the alter. And I heard clearly. Catherine of Avalon. Wasn't she one of Henry the xiii's wives? I can't find anything about her on Google. But who ever she was. I saw her last night.

Strange because on the way to class on two different radio channels I heard different things about Henry xiii. When will that ever happen again?
But, it was interesting, and fun as it always is.

Pieces of eight.

I've been tagged by Tiger Yogi.

Eight things you didn’t know about me, maybe.

1. I love garage sales. Show me a community full of garage sales and I’m in heaven.

2. I adore gay themed books. Throw in some bondage and guy on guy situations and I’ll be a fan for ever more.

3. I always have a book of some sort in my purse.

4. I sometimes dream in French. I don’t speak French.

5. I’ve never used salt on food. In fact we had one salt shaker so long; I used it on my icy sidewalks one winter.

6. Chinese food is not my friend.

7. I want a big cauldron for my front yard. Let the neighbors think whatever they want too.

8. Pink is my favorite color. Red is a close second. They sort of go back and forth being my favorite.

9. I wanted to be a veterinarian but believed I wasn’t intelligent to attend collage.

10. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the TV show Jon and Kate plus eight.

I'm suppose to tag eight other people.
Everyone is pretty much already tagged, but I choose....

And anyone else who would like to share with us.

Happy Gay Pride

I made it to Chicago's Gay Pride Parade today. And it was a lot of fun.

450 thousand people it was reported attended. The weather held, no rain, over cast though, which resulted in SUNBURN. My face and arms are red but I'll survive.

I went with my friends Bob and his boyfriend Michael. Those two slay me. lol.

When we were getting on the train to go downtown there were three young, I mean REALLY young boys. I'd guess maybe late teens at the oldest. And they were super cute. Cute in that "I'm gay, I'm proud and don't you just want to eat me with a spoon?" type of way. One had iron straight blond hair, one had curly hair and the last had dark brown with white clumps, all spiked. He was decked out in everything rainbow. Michael looks over at them and says excitedly..."Look! Pretty ones." LOL. And they were really pretty.

Chicago was jammed packed today. We had the Pride parade, the Mexican parade, and the Cubs played against the Sox. All on the same day.
On the train coming home Michael wondered...."If you are both gay and Mexican...which parade would you go too?" Hmm, I wonder. lol.

Last night

Coming home from work last night. I was driving through a little town next to ours. I saw this 'thing' on all fours on the sidewalk. This was next to the main street, a busy street.
I slowed down because I thought it might be a dog. A big dog.

Then as I was getting closer, it stood up. On two legs.
I was puzzled. Then I saw it was a man talking on his cell phone.
Then he continued to stumble on down the street.

He must have come out of the bar and fell down. That is when I saw him on all fours.
I just shook my head and drove on home.

I think I need new glasses.

Today I saw a truck that said...Porklift.

I immediately thought, how would that work? and why would you need to lift pork?

Then I realized that I had read it wrong.


That explains a lot more.
