Questionable remodel 

Visited the newly remodeled Target store at Broadway and Rosemont in search of Halloween costumes for the girls. There are these giant redstone cement spheres on the sidewalk outside that look like somebody dismembered theVenus Of Willendorfand posted her body parts out front as a warning to others.

Apparently there's an international tournament... 

For the "Rock,paper,scissors" game?

Hey... Cool :) Lizzie here... I took the Greek god test. Apparently, I am Hecate. Which makes me happy in a brooding sort of way.

Mommy's Little Helper 

Maggie was overtired today and I let her play hookie, I know, bad Mom. Still, she was grateful. She offered to help by feeding the baby breakfast. What was her choice? A bag of assorted cookies with orange juice. Nice try, but no cigar. And Sarah rewarded her by spilling the juice all over her chair. Sometimes I feel less like their mother and more like the zookeeper in the monkey house. Welcome to the monkeyhouse. Lalalalala...tommorrow is another day.

Getting up off my intellectual derriere  

Dear goddess, do I need to get a life. I just put up a subblog for my opinions on things and then realized I hadn't read or seen anything new lately for which I could conjure much of an opinion. I'm up in the morning against my will these days, so I'm going to make a pact with myself to do things like listen to NPR or that uber liberal thing they have on in the mornings on KXCI. I'm going to go to more intelligent websites than just humour and music links. I'm going to start behaving like a smart person again, for good or for ill. My baby will live if I start rationing her Disney channel a bit and if I'm going to be sitting around on the couch too tired to move, might as well use my ears for something, right? I'm going to start watching the news and listening to webradio and so forth. Wake up, Julie, a year's gone by since last you were interesting.

National novel Writing Month... 

Great,another thing I won't be able to accomplish...

Everything must have its place... 

Here and forever more, the following features of my web site have their own independent blogs: the myth of the day
the divinatory reading of the day
critiques and opinions

So as to not clutter up my little weblog. And so as to force me to keep a proper journal.

Ogham reading of the Day 

Gorse

Generosity and persistence

Your work is bearing fruit, and you are reaping its benefits. Remember that generosity is an appropriate response to abundance! Persist in your efforts, too; the blessings you have seen are a result of perseverance, and require continued effort.
Gorse or furze is the seventeenth Ogham tree. It thrives outside the forest, even in inhospitable lands. Although its mature growth is tough and spiky, its new shoots are a favorite food of sheep, and it blossoms with sweet yellow flowers throughout the year, to the benefit of the bees. For these reasons, gorse symbolizes both generosity and persistence.

Willow

Intuition

Your intuition will help you understand the situation and what is best to do. Give yourself the time and opportunity you need to allow your subconscious to communicate its knowledge to you.

Willow, the Ogham's fourth tree, is closely connected to water, the unconscious, the moon, and thus the feminine. It is symbolic of intuition, the ability to make connections and gain understanding without knowing exactly how or why one knows

Myth of the Day 

The Siren
He listened in thrall to the song of the siren,
Her voice like a star as it flew through the air.
He drowned in her eyes as she called him to follow,
And likened the sun to the gold of her hair. She swept up her arms and held him close to her,
Her soft lips caressing the lines on his brow.
He could not resist her, a magic had trapped him,
And nothing could save him, for she had him now. She pulled him down with her into the clear water,
He gasped as death started the grip on his soul.
His life ebbed away as she dragged him still further,
And laughed when she saw she'd accomplished her goal.
(Charlotte Lester)
Waterhouse painting of same.

Tarot Cards of the Day 

Death: A major change or transformation, possibly traumatic and unexpected. Freedom from the shackles of the past. A new beginning. Death coupled with rebirth, usually related to consciousness and lifestyle.

King of Cups: The essence of water behaving as air, such as a billowing cloud in the blue sky: Great maturity, endless patience, tolerance of other points of view, and a deep knowledge of human nature. One who intuitively knows the strengths of those around him, and gently cultivates them. Remaining calm and relaxed in all situations, and making artful use of diplomacy or a quiet word to resolve conflicts. The ability to listen to what another person is saying, and truly understand what is in their heart. A rewarding partner and a beloved leader.
