Chalkboard

Oh God, I thought my Mother had got all of the vet bills and charges on her credit card while I was at Burning Man, but I was wrong, she got them today. Great. I wondered why she was being so nice to me, and not bringing it up. I wrote her a long impassioned letter, asking for her help, understanding and forgiveness. Of course now that the stock market has taken this frightening plunge and is bouncing all around, and I've scheduled surgery for three of my cats tomorrow, she gets the bill. Oh God, big huge enormous weary sigh. Anyone out there know of a way for me to support myself, using the computer, from home?

This is our friend Yoshi who we met when he was hitchiking his way out of Burning Man last year. he had the first Burning Man website in Japan. He flew to Reno and rode his bike to Burning Man. He is so nice! I wish I could understand his website, Magarisugi.com, anyone care to translate for me?

Okay, I'm trying to stay calm, but when you read that the hijackers were trying to rent or buy crop dusting planes, it's just a little bit more than even I can dissociate from. Please pray or meditate or visualize healing white light for all of us?

You guys? I have a question I've been wondering about, and don't know where to get the answer from. Have you ever seen those films about the first weeks of life, where they somehow manage to insert a tiny camera into the uterus, and show the fetus? I was just watching this show on TLC and I wondered if they could do that without harming the fetus? It would really put me at ease if I could learn for certain that this doesn't harm the baby, then I would be able to watch these films and feel joyful about them.

Great, there I was watching TLC tonight, all of these shows about birth, thinking yes, this is what I need a little break from, death, when these fuckers decide to show rat experiments dealing with breathing oxygen saturated water. Poor little, innocent, sweet, white rat, and it's clearly panicking, thinking it's going to drown in this beaker. Fucking assholes!!! I want to kill people who research on animals. I feel such unbelievable rage when I see anything like this.

I know they showed this in The Abyss, I've read about it, but that doesn't make it okay, and the fact that more and more films, and television shows, and magazines, are showing this kind of footage, makes me think people are becoming numb, and accepting of it. And don't even get me started on the fur ads I've been seeing in the magazines lately. It's time to get out the red paint ballooons again. Fuckers. I'm sorry I'm just so fucking pissed off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And don't tell me I don't care about people, or that animals are less important than we are, because I will just think you are an arrogant unfeeling bastard.
