the ashtastic blog post

Not to be confused with my soon to be coming feature blogs. If you read me and dont want to be featured you need to tell me Ok?
Its been a strange day. Last day gill is home before f-ing st. mary's and im very sad. We are post-poning our valentine's celebration until he is home for good.

Madame Fabu has kidney stones. It is apparently horrifically painful and can i just send some love out not only for the healing but because she knows me well enough to know im embarrassingly intrigued by the thought of the actual kidney stones? (as is princess fabu....)I have not officially asked to see them but the hint is there and she hasnt said no.....

Gret came in looking extremely upset and her first words were "have you paid your mortgage yet?" As if there would be a way id pay it without telling her immediately (thats not sarcasm. We are like that.)(ok perhaps this post should change to my odd interpersonal relationships)She proceeded to tell me that she dreamt i died in an accident because i lost the house for not paying mortgage and was so distracted i wrecked the car...she made me send it immediately. Its scary for me because we will cut close financially but i feel this strange sense of not-alone-ness because she knows im cutting close and maybe it will be ok.

So another day of basically being housebound since all school was cancelled and my afterschool kid had a cold. So lots of interesting "how not to be a sociopath" work for the kids....the rest of the post is the ashtastic part as the winsome Ash requested a slew of topics. She is really cute so i will be her dancing monkey!

same sex marriage- what makes me laugh the hardest is when people say it is against the sacred institution and choose the most arbitrary aspect of a relationship (gender) to use as an emblem of sanctity. OH PLEASE! If its so sacred, where is the "true love" test? Where is the pre-marital challenge? I love it when homophobic hysteria masks as moral superiority (ok i admit i dont really love it)In retrospect, i have regrets that i got married when other lovers couldnt. (and i also admit i have a fantasy of walking my son (either one) down the aisle where the man of his dreams is waiting. And then they move in with me, and take care of me in my old age of course)

female genital mutilation Read possessing the secret of joy (alice walker) in the early 90s. YOW. I cant even think about it. I have circumcision guilt about my own babies....

the fact that abraham lincoln and darwin share a birthday



I think the question is, who is cuter? Definitely definitely Darwin....

the state of the union address, You mean the state of my butt? Oh come ON ash! You read this thing? You totally saw that coming....

bush or no bush? I was just telling trixie about this. I think we need more bushes in iraq. Like the bush twins. It shows solidarity. Like he really does understand the sacrifice families are making.

female president versus minority or giuliani freaking giuliani. I am ALL ABOUT Obama. But my heart wouldnt break if it were hillary either. But freaking giuliani??? I think not...


Ok you ashtastic little fool!

bush or no bush? Isn't that what Brazilian bikini wax is for? lol

And you forgot to mention that, in addition to your son and son-in-law moving in with you, they will decorate the house spectacularly, show you "What Not To Wear", and host fabulous dinner parties at which they will do all the work, even pouring you pretty, girly drinks. (occasionally I have the same little fantasy about Corwin!)

Ha! I was going to make Canada's joke. :)

Also, did you know I've had two kidney stones? Poor Madame Fabu. I hope she has really potent painkillers (I got a morphine drip with the first one...)

You never hear the word winsome anymore. it should be used more often. I think the last time I heard winsome, I was reading one of the Anne of Green Gables books. I like winsome Ash. perhaps I should change my blogname. I am so there with you on every single topic. I think you crawled into my brain and stole all of my opinions! Well, except for Obama Barack. I'm voting Hillary into office.
And yes, Darwin is better looking.
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Feel better madame fabu, totally sending out some karmic jewish penicillian.

Wow...

Don't you think the Lincoln had a cool way about him? It sucks he got taken out so early...I think he was starting a band or something...cool hair and beard!

I'm posting now, because when my man Giuliani becomes President I'm sure that I won't be welcome around these parts. LOL!

An Italian, a black guy, a woman and a southern lawyer walked into a bar. And I walked out. With the lady, of course.

Canada---pretty girlie drinks...oh man sign me up!
LB- i think i knew this! I passed on well wishes but inadvertently created bitterness towards the local hospital regarding her lack of morphine drip...(and is it a sign of something bad that im tempted to go "mmmm.....morphine drip" homer simpson style?)
Ash she will read this eventually and your karmic penicillin will serve her well!
Rockdog! My man! dont be silly! Your voice will always be welcome hear at chez panflutemaster! We court the insane here...you know that!
Skycat- now that is a smooooove punchline baby....im sure the lady was uber hot and cool
