Mythological Norse Vegetation of The Day 

Yggdrasil: The World Tree

I came, I saw, I ate everything I saw ... 

Tucson Meet Yourself (There's still time left, you know):

My particular menu today included pierogi with sour cream, fry bread with honey, grilled shrimp on a stick, stuffed grape leaves, and hungarian pancakes filled with raspberry jam. Not to mention the music and dance and art and what have you. Or you could all just sit home in the dark.


My little girls have learned the meaning of sisterhood 

In other words, they've proceeded to try to beat each other up on a regular basis. And I'm assuming this is just the beginning, having had a sister of my own...

The adventures of Lizzie Stardust 

Ha Ha, found it on my own! My former adolescent partner in crime has a blog of her very own now.

Daughters Of The Moon Tarot Cards Of The Day 

KUAN YIN
When she appears you know your magic is working and you are moving forward in a spiritually positive direction. Kuan Yin also represents well being in all your elements: balanced emotions, material security, mental agility and the ability to act

FOCUS
The Focus card also addresses how we pay attention to others, thereby empowering them. The celebrity or star system is an example of unbalanced focused attention. We all deserve and need recognition. If everyone gives and receives, there is no scarcity or need to compete, as there will be enough for everyone

Just a Thought 

Sometimes when one is trying to prove one's worth to others one just comes across as an unbearable snob instead. Or maybe it's just me that does that.

TUCSON MEET YOUSELF!!! 

Festivals Tucson, TUCSON ENTERTAINMENT, Culture Clubs

It's friggin mandatory. And it's as old as I am.

A complaint... 

Been following Neil Gaiman's 1602, and this month's comic is kind of a rip off, comparitively, being as literally every other page is an ad. So says "comic book girl." Why not put in enough ads to make the thing free, then? Why charge so much? Oh, yeah, maybe because the ads are mostly for other comics. And video games. Who do they think I am?

I'm apparently way too presumptious 

Learned I had strange things in common with a couple of friends I thought I already knew on a nearly telepathic level. Lesson learned. Never take anything for granted.

Tarot Cards of the Day 

Seven of Cups : Daydreams and things seen in the glass of contemplation. The scattering of energies by strong desires and unrealistic goals. The pursuit of illusions and the dissipation of energy on false choices. Intoxication, delirium, and hallucination, leading to the negation of effort.

The World: Completeness and intricacy of design. A great work. Achievement, reward, and well-earned recognition. A time of success, prosperity, security and joy. May also indicate travel or a change in residence.

Because I could.

Simon Le Bon's Book Club??? 

Okay, well I had to take the bait...
My 15 year old self reeling with anticipation at the thought.
Book Club

Site Of The Day:Bookslut.com

sample quote:
"I'm not sure if the scary thing about Simon LeBon's book club is the fact that it exists or if it's that his book club is a lot more alluring than Oprah's. I mean, they're reading Master and Margarita, Cryptonomicon, and The Black Dahlia. I bet Jonathan Frazen would be honored to be chosen by the Simon LeBon book club, logo or no. "

tarots of today 

FOUR OF STAVES
This card is a herald of success drawing on apace. Good financial opportunities. As for your health, don't forget that talking can be releasing and healing. This card also stresses the importance of friends .

SEVEN OF COINS
This represents the circulation of wealth and material goods. It predicts money coming and going in a steady and regular flow. Thus, you won't accumulate possessions. Reason is stronger now than feelings or it analyses them. Emotional therapy, psychotherapy. Love is androgynous, ambivalent, platonic.

Myth of the day 

Sisyphus:

In Greek mythology Sisyphus (pronounced "sis'-i-fuhs"), the sly son of Aeolus and king of Corinth, outwitted even Death. When Death came to get him, Sisyphus bound him in chains, preventing everyone from dying until Zeus rescued Death. Sisyphus then went to Hades, having instructed his wife to give him an improper burial. He was allowed to return to Earth in order to settle this matter, but refused to return to Hades. When Death finally claimed him, Sisyphus was condemned eternally to roll a heavy stone to the top of a hill, only to have it fall back each time.
