This Woman's Work

Written by Kate Bush.
Performed here by Maxwell.

Pray to God you can cope
I stand outside
This woman's work
This woman's world
Oooh, it's hard on the man
Now his part is over
Now starts the craft of the father

I know you have a little life in you yet

HIt a dog today :(

I was driving between clients and this little gray dog ran right in front of my car. I think he mostly rolled under my car. When the car stopped, he kinda rolled out from underneath it. The way he was lying on the pavement, I thought maybe his back was broken. He was screaming. Then he got up and ran the rest of the way across the street.
I was in total shock. Like I had to think, okay. Turn off the car. Put on the emergency brake. Turn on the hazard lights. Take off your seatbelt. Open the door. Look for other cars. Get out. Walk over there.

If it's easy...

It' probably meant to be. That's become sort of a rule of thumb for me. I guess I started developing this theory after spending waaaaay too much money on Xmas presents that were touted as being "the thing", only to find that they really weren't the anything. And it's sort of spread to the rest of my life. If something's a big pain in the a**, it's not generally worth it. Not that I'm opposed to working. But what's the saying, don't work hard, work smart? It's all about finding a good fit. Why force something that's not really going to be satisfying in the end, anyway?

Does McDickless think that one P*ssy is just the same as any other, and that women are going to vote for a woman based solely on common genital traits? Like girls aren't going to notice that P*lin is totally anti-choice (even in the case of incest or rape), and that s/he has no foreign policy experience at all, because we're going to be blinded by the fact that she has breasts? Puhleez!
It's a freak show.

1. A decent night's sleep. Night before last, it was very hot, there were fleas in my bed, had to break up a cat fight in the middle of the night---argh. But last night was cooler, I changed the sheets (and most of the fleas are dead now--they had all jumped off the animals when I put adv*ntage on them), no cat fights (that I heard). And I feel so much better.
2. Record player. Last night it was Donna Summer's "Bad Girls", this morning, it's John Lennon and Yoko Ono "Double Fantasy". You know, it's a very good record!

wait, wait

I can neither describe nor understand this. I can't exactly say that I encourage or recommend that you listen to this. It's more like when you think the milk has turned and you ask someone else to smell it. I'm not sure if it's good or bad, or just weird:
