Remembering majroj's post on a chilly morning...

There is a chill that has crawled into my sweater through my freezing fingers and up my arms, a chill that has me shivering. The city got cloudy yesterday and then they went away. But, the chill that came on the accompanying winds has decided to stay. The house is closed up tight and the sun is setting, I have on a half inch thick sweater, but it is no help, no barrier to this cold. I went out to the mailbox and the slight wind pushed the chill down the collar of my sweater and froze my fingers...

My emails on >>"Schadenfreude is the gleeful joy you experience...

"Schadenfreude is the gleeful joy you experience when someone else gets his just desserts or has his comeuppance. " More generally refers to taking delight in somebody else's misfortune, but generally with the sense that they deserve it. Borrowed from the German, and English doesn't have its own word for it. Other brother writes, " In English it is translated, "nyeah-nya, nyeah-nya, nyeah-nyaaa! The Republicans are doing their best to make sure Palin does not return in 2012, or at any other...

Today I taxied and was a personal shopper, sure, that's it.

I drove my next door neighbors to pick up the car that they put a down payment upon yesterday, when we drove to Oro Valley. They bought it, then drove to insure it and then disappeared for the rest of the day. I thought I'd see that new car parked, but no, ROAD TRIP!!!! I'm sure that they had a blast. Got home at about 8 p.m. Then, I visited my mom and hung curtains, downloaded photos from her camera for her and looked at her new bathroom floors all tiled and pretty. I left with a package to...

I bought three yards of orange cloth with BOO written on it.

Then, I bought two yards of orange and silver reflective cloth tape and cut eye patches out of it, put elastic strings on them to tie around heads swathed in Boo bandanas and then scotch taped gold and silver earrings to the ears of my Somali pirate crew. We were Turkish and Iraqi pirates, too. I took twelve children and two adults with me. One mother wanted to come along and so did her teenaged daughter. She loved telling everyone that she was Iraqi. We were stared at as all the girls had... Sign in to see full entry.

Got this email about voter disenfranchising, please write to help out...

Bush wants Mukasey to suppress votes in Ohio. Fight back to protect every voter. Tell Attorney General Mukasey not to use the Department of Justice to quash the rights of Ohioans. This year, there are over 600,000 newly registered Ohio voters, but President Bush has asked Attorney General Mukasey to investigate as many as 200,000 of them. Why? Because Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner won't let voters be disenfranchised simply because of a typo in a state database. Secretary Brunner has... Sign in to see full entry.

Today's email about Joe Six Pack and Us

A Day in the Life of Joe Six-pack Joe gets up at 6 a.m. and fills his coffeepot with water for coffee. The water is clean because some tree-hugging liberal fought for minimum water-quality standards. With his first swallow, he takes his daily pills, which are safe because some stupid commie liberal fought to ensure that they work as advertised. All but $10 of his medications are paid for by his employer's medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical... Sign in to see full entry.

Two favorite actors died in July and Aug. this year, not counting my

good man, Paul Neuman, may he rest in peace and a thousand blessings be upon him for his good works here on Earth. Breno Mello and Marpessa Dawn worked together in one of my favorite films, Orfeu Negro or Preto, if you like.... He died first and she died about a month later. He was Orfeu, the star of the Brasilian film and she was his love, Eurydice. Here is what the papers said about these two Black Orpheus actors' passings>>>> Breno Mello, the handsome, sculptured leading man in the classic... Sign in to see full entry.

Newspaper coverage on our Obama Fest activities, photo show

Here is a slide show of the photos taken by the newspaper at our Obama FEST. You can see my huge flag mural in one photo, all covered with words that the kids were painting on it and then, in one photo, you can see me, what I really look like, without my glasses on as I can't see up close with them in place, painting Diego's face..... Here, then click on play slideshow under the first photo or at the bottom of the black box.... Just another day in Grandma's World. The next day I registered... Sign in to see full entry.
