Exponential Detritus For Feeble Minds

Cops: Captive entrant tortured

You know, people who accuse illegal immigrants of being deadbeats, welfare scams, whatever, usually ignore the fact that these are often people who risked death by dehydration, being shot at by border patrol agents and god knows what else because their situation back home was so bad as to be worth the risk. Not to mention sick bastards like this one.

TAROT CARDS OF THE DAY:

Queen of Swords: The essence of air behaving as water, such as a refreshing mist: A person gifted with both keen logic and natural intuition, giving them uncanny powers of perception and insight. One who easily sees past deception and confusion to the heart of a matter, and understands both sides of any argument. The embodiment of calm, forthrightness, and wit, in the face of even the most trying circumstances.

Five of Cups (Disappointment): Suffering a loss and wishing for what might have been. Being crippled by sadness, grief, and vain regret. Indecision brought on by the feeling that you made the wrong choice. Ignoring what you still have. May suggest a broken relationship or tragedy. May also suggest a gift, inheritance, opportunity, partnership, or marriage, but one that falls below expectations.
Can't make any sense of this thing, but it's better than consulting a thesaurus. Meaningless but lovely words. Uses "exponential," detritus'" and "feeble" all on the same page.

I shite you not, Carr's water biscuit crackers are promoting the movie seabiscuit. There was a big display when I went grocery shopping and I did a double take to make sure I'd seen it right.
I'm going to see Bowie in February!!! Just thought I'd share.

Runes Of The Day:

Dagez...

...means daylight, and represents divine light. This rune generally refers to dawn (the initial sparking of energy) or to midday (the climax of energy). Both dawn and midday are symbolic of change, but unlike the changes in the perpetual circle of the year which are slow and subtle, the changes over a day are much faster and more dramatic. The breaking of a new day is symbolic of the rapid illumination of dismal circumstances, and is suggestive of Satori. Be careful - although this rune generally suggests a positive change, the symbology of a peaking point suggests that there must be a change downward as well. Fortunately for some, this rune is cyclic and irreversible, and so permanence is not promised - the only thing you can be sure of is an exciting ride.

Uruz...

...symbolizes the Auroch, a member of the ox family that became extinct long ago. This rune represents the strength, bravery, and endurance of this animal of old. Uruz portends the ability to meet problems head on and to overcome them. When the world was new, warriors used to test their strength against the Auroch. Hence, this rune has come to represent the masculine principle and the capacity to meet a challenge.
Ridiculous little poem I wrote myself weeks ago...
(Sung to the tune of "Anarchy In The UK" by the Sex Pistols)
Too old to be an anarchist
And too cold to be a child of christ
Don't know what I want and don't know how to get it
Don't want to destroy
Just want oblivion

WAXING POETIC....

Forced to make an emergency run to the store for a particular item at four a.m. in spite of the fear of family members that I will be raped or killed if I wander about at odd hours. I am neither. I am, however, thwarted, it seems at every turn. The nearest grocery store is closed. My local 24 hour drugstore will not allow me to buy said item, even though it is in reach and within plain view, as they have roped off the area for floor waxing. I am forced to go to a nearby 24 hour grocery store. They have my item and something else I need and I briefly consider buying a bag of shrimp while I'm there, but when I wander toward that aisle I discover that the seafood area IS ROPED OFF FOR FLOOR WAXING! I had no idea that Tuesday 4am was universal waxing hour. You learn something new every day, I guess.
