Misa Blue, I don't know why I didn't notice before.
That is the 'my size' barbie I bought from my niece for 4 dollars! She drove a hard bargain. Then I shipped it to Doc.

Funny thing is that a few years ago my girlfriend gave it to hear along with a huge box of other barbie crap. Then we had to buy it back from my niece.

You nailed it Savannah!
I hope this thread is as long lived as the FUCK thread. I feel both are great outlets for things we do and things that happen in our lives. Sharing the bad is cathartic, sharing the good is inspiring. Taken together I think it balances us.
Yay for all the good things in this thread and yay to everyone who's posted.

Man I love you guys!

I'm totally head over heals in love with the most amazing man!! He's a burner and a ranger and I feel so happy every single day!

In other news, my favorite SD burner, Wee Heavy is coming to visit and go playa shopping this weekend!

AND my boss is out of the office ALL week next week.

Man...I am just grinning ear to ear. That's a lot of good stuff.

My most recent MRI confirms what my doctor anticipated, The Tumor on the lining of my brain has been reduced to an acceptable size and the void has also reduced as well as expected, I'll be coming off the anti-seizure meds and am cleared for Driving and the Playa!!!!

Yeaaaah!

9 months of blah. Bye-bye!

Blessed Be,

I'm happy!! Totally happy!!!

My new massage table arrived today. Poor UPS guy had to carry it from his truck down the pier to the houseboat which was no easy feat. I tipped him with a cup of camomile tea and offered him a free aura reading. He sipped the tea but didn't have time for my reading.

Had brunch with my shaman friend at the Buckeye Roadhouse here in Mill Valley. Soooooo scrumptuous!!!!!!! Well, except for the butter on my grilled tempeh platter (I told the waiter I was vegan-TWICE)

Picked up three new clients (2) massage and (1) aura reading.

Picked up my car from the mechanic (300 TD) and found out the turbo wasn't the problem after all. It was the silly fuel injectors. Mechanic suggested that my bio fuel dealer might be using McDonald's grease insted of the tainted olive oil that he claims is his source. SO uncool (if true).

Going to the East Bay tomorrow to volunteer for the Flaming Lotus Girls. I know they'll need my help and can't wait to help with early arrival once we get closer to GOING HOME!!!!!

Om Shanti, Om.

Hope every one else had a great day.

Found a "meat cutter apprentice" job, in Klamath Falls. Ive wanted to be a Butcher (or Meat Cutter), since I first read "Busy Day, Busy People" when I was 4 years old. Even if I don't get the job, It's nice to know there are still apprenticeships out there. Broke my toe today...again.. but it's OK!
