1. ...owned a restaurant, what kind of food would you serve? I'd serve Italian fusion based on the kinds of food I grew up with, which all had an Italian base but took from many other cultures, all really from the different nationalities in my family.

2. ...owned a small store, what kind of merchandise would you sell? My stepmother and I have always wanted to open a Pagan store with a tea shop attached. Theresa and I have much the same idea, actually -- I'd also love to see this store/cafe turn into a B&B

3. ...wrote a book, what genre would it be? Already working on the proposal for a "popular" non-fiction memoir/collection of stories about the women in my family.

4. ...ran a school, what would you teach? I've often considered getting my PhD to teach literature.

5. ...recorded an album, what kind of music would be on it? Covers of my favorite songs -- very eclectic

I am cleaning, running errands, and doing laundry. If I feel particularly ambitious, I will also fix the hall closet.

Yes, I will come to your house but you have to pay me. Conveniently, I can be bought with food, notably good sushi. Am gets a free go, since Billy Boyd called me and it was all her fault.

Thit means I will probably be working all weekend or at least a good part of it. That's ok by me. Cha-ching, if you catch my drift.

Mom is heading into surgery -- I just got the call. She is in good spirits and my sister will be there the entire time. Keep the healing thoughts and prayers coming -- I thank you for them. So does she.

Send good job/money vibes my way....I've got some irons in the fire that could prove both incredibly lucrative and really important to my career. No details at this time.

I also plan to go to the gym. On a daily basis, if I can, until I leave for FL. Does it really help if you hang the bikini on the fridge door? Oh also - I don't diet but any tips for tasty healthy snacks and low-calorie yummy things are always welcome. Don't bother too much with dessert options, as I believe in small amount of very good desserts rather than big helpings of "diet" desserts. Though I love the Weight Watchers desserts, the frozen ones. Yummy.

That is all for now. No interesting work this weekend, for those who are curious -- it's all b2b writing. But it pays the bills.

much love to you all -- my friends are all very on my mind today, so I hope you all know that you are loved and missed and appreciated by me all the time.

ps Billy Boyd called me -- I'm gonna ride that for a while, if you all don't mind.
Out of surgery - standard D&C. She's groggy and getting ready to go home. Doc said all looks fine; he is sending a sample for pahtology but doesn't expect anything negative.

Thank you for all of your good thoughts and prayers. I truly believe it helped a lot.
Your guardian animal is a Gryphon! Gryphons are
fiercely protective animals who use their
intellect to vanguish foes. Gryphons are
monogamous creatures who mate only once in
their life and stand guard over their young at
all costs. Ancient mythology holds that at one
point three creatures fought for control of the
skies: the dragon, chimera, and gryphon. The
gryphon, after studying its opponents for a
long time, lured the dragon into the seas where
its fire was of no use and killed it. The
gryphon then burrowed under ground and attacked
the chimera from the one direction it could not
look. The gryphon won this battle as well and
has since been regarded with great respect by
all other beasts.

Gods know "bold, daring and to the point" is a MUCH more polite way to describe me than many people have in the past, even when they mean the same thing...
