20 April 2008


Ever had one of those days? Weeks?

I am.

I'm uninspired, unmotivated, and just generally untied.

I've been occupied with trying out a new template for my blog. I've been practicing here. Please, no comments. It's a work in progress.

The news coming from Texas regarding the FLDS families and their separation from their children has me unsettled. I want the authorities to make sure there has been no abuse but at the same time the agony those mothers and children must be going through cuts me to the bone. Then? Friday's episode of Battlestar Gallactica left me freaked. Cally (wife of one of the final five cylons, Galen) finds out Galen is a cylon and decides to shoot herself and her son Nicholas out an airlock. She doesn't do it (a cylon tricks her and Cally goes out the airlock without her son - ish), but that she was thinking of hurting her child upset me. Then? Reading this post? About a mother being separated from her son by a drunkard piece-of-shit? It got to me, too.

Needless to say, I've had "forcible separation from my kids" anxiety all weekend. How did I fix it? I listened to my iPod while weeding my jungle of a front yard.

So, to bring back some creativity to CofaCMG (and to continue with the theft of ideas from other bloggers), I'm asking you to ask me.

No, actually, I'm telling you to ask me. I want you guys to ask me questions. I need you to. Easy, hard, stupid, intelligent, uncomfortable, funny, whatever. Ask what you want to ask. Ask more that one question. Just do it and I'll begin answering on Monday. 'Kay?

Oh, and? Tonight? It's me and the Fab man*. On his talk radio show. Just click here at 7PM 'cause I'll be there. We'll be discussing Oprah and her cult of personality, the unified field theory, Obama vs. Hillary.... yeah, whateva. We'll probably talk about penis bracelets, how to pee without the caller on the other end of the phone hearing you, and jawbone zits.

Seriously. Check it out!

* NATUI? Saw your post on alcoholic beverages. Loved the whole "hover over the word and see a text description." So? Stole it. All about the theft. Thanks, hon! Love you!

Girl, you can steal from me any time. I am sad that you are having such a shite weekend, too. But glad I could give you the idea to steal. I stole it from someone else--I just hope it didn't take you as long to get it up and running as it did me.

O.K. I have a (probably lame) qustion.
The hubby and kids are gone for the night. You have the t.v. to yourself.
What's the first movie you go for?
The one only you can stand to watch 10,000 times?

LOVE the new template! So...

If you had three wishes, what would they be?

If you could do anything you want, no penalties, no reprisals, and the cost is unimportant, what are you going to do?

Unknown said...

Oh, one more...
Why am I such a friggin freak that I am now consistently waking up at 6:30 am on the weekends?!?! (can't wait to see the answer for this) :-)

Here are a few questions to get you started:

1) If you could do any one thing to make the world a better place, what would it be?

2) If you were a superhero, what would your name and power be?

3) What is the other path your life might have taken?

Peace - D

Avitable said...

Dude, a fucking spoiler alert please! :)

And as for a question:

If you to make a credible argument for the Empire and against the Rebellion, what would it be?

Dave2 said...

Uhhh... for the benefit of your foreign readers which have to wait to see Battlestar Galactica... or people like me who TiVo the show because they travel all the time and don't get to watch it live... you mights want to let people know there's a SPOILER ALERT coming before you ruin the show for them!

Thankfully I've already seen the show, but I'd be freaking out if I hadn't!! :-)

"I'm uninspired, unmotivated, and just generally untied."

Jenn said...

Avitable - Oh, Lord, should have known you'd ask the geek question.

Loving the new work-in-progress. :)

Hmmm... questions, questions, questions.

What are you reading right now?

If I gave you $5000 to spend on a new wardrobe, where would you shop?

What is in your porn collection?
