No where to go but up

A friend gave me an old (not to old) CRT monitor. works great. I can lift it, that was the main criteria. Need a different cable to hook up my HDTV to the affair. And I need to pluck it off the wall where it hangs about six inches from the ceiling.

And wouldn't ya know, now the laptop monitor is working again. If you squeeze it about two inches in from the left and two inches up from the bottom it works but, can you imagine how much fun it is to type with one hand on the keyboard and the other FIRMLY attached to the screen. HMM I think it needs a bit of glue inside. or alot of glue. I'll call Dell with all my wisdom and see what they will charge me.

I can hear them laughing now, in England English with Indian from India overtones. And me with brain fog, unable to spit out three quarters of the words needed to explain the almost indescribable situation.

But I still like the big screen idea the best. Not very portable. glad it didn't sell in the liquidation of my shit that has been occurring lately.

My latest necklace. Silver buffalo and beads, denim lapis beads, and glass beads. sweet.

I just got back from the Valley of the Sun and will I was there, my cumputer screens bottom 1/3 decided it was no longer apart of the screen team. It secesseded Friday night in my motel room just as I was trying to hook into the high speed. OOOOOOOOO I'm home now on the BF's sons 12" laptop. It's really sweet. Guess I can hook mine up to my 38 inch HDTV up on the wall. Not very portable but at least I can look at my shit in the my documents file.

I'm bummed to say the least. my live really is hooked into my cumputer. All my photoshop stuff and the pictures. Just got a free trial to corel painter. Thats so FUN. Might alll look good on the 38 inch screen. When I get the energy to hook it up. Hope I still have a cable. Had a little house cleaning day last week and thru alot of stuff away. Less to pack when I figure out how to move.

It rained the whole time I was in Phoenix. Thought I might have took a wrong turn and had ended up in Oregon. I trying writing (to entertain myself) but I can't think so well without a keyboard at my fingertips. my hand writing sucks. I can't spell either. So annoying.

But I have lot's of beads. Need to get ready for the farmers market in July. Have one commissioned to do in the next week. And I was going to put them on the web again. We'll see.

Never a spare moment in the daily battle of Armageddon


I saw the sign

Yard sale, all must go

Including me it turned out

being uncommitted to time

and in the spending way

And then I saw

my heart skipped a beat

in a box of other forgotten pastiche

cheap at 50 cents

poor tossed to the curb "Barbie"

in a hell of a fix

She looked like the end of the bender

in her torn see-though lingerie

hair a disheveled disaster

So how, dear friends,

could I pass up Barbie in that box

of nuts and bolts

after all she had done for me

in the angst of childhood

crooning over my flat chest

she told me someday, these would be yours

Barbie Boobs, thank god thought I.

So I gave the guy two quarters

and quickly left the scene for home

gave her a spa day in the sink

mended her tattered undees

and stitched her a chenille bathrobe

She can be house mouse Barbie for awhile

In the potted plant

Cinderella among roses

Move over Betsy Wetsy,

there’s a new doll in town

It's just like ground hog day

I'm taking one class and it's kick'n my ass.
