SASF v6.10 - Seriously Now, Folks

Yes, indeed, Celti has managed once again to kick the funk, dispatch the dark cloud and peek out from under her rock. To hell with this depression shit - it's no way to live. I have too much going for me and too much to do to waste any more precious time wringing my hands and wallowing in self pity.

I don't have a whole lot of giggle-fodder for you today since I spent most of my "hunting" time doing said wallowing. Here are a few goodies for you, and then something serious to chew on.

The weekend awaits - booyah!

Happy Birthday
...goes out to a brilliant actor and wonderful man. Gene Wilder turns 72 years old today (wow, could he possibly be 72?!).

I've always loved Gene's comedy, his cleverly crafted roles in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (one of my all-time favorite movies), Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Sex, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and so many more. My adoration was sealed, however, when I read Gilda Radner's book "It's Always Something." It intimately details her life, her marriage to Gene and her losing battle with Cancer - he finished the book for her after she died. It gave me a close look at what a wonderful man he is, and I admire him tremendously.

Gene, I hope you have found happiness again and that you have a wonderful birthday.

Action Figures and Other Silliness
Since becoming the mother of a boy, I have rediscovered the wonderful world of action figures. They make them for just about anything really - like the "crazy cat lady". "There she stands - ratty bathrobe, checked pajama bottoms, headband, wild hair, and a fanatical look on her face. And she's surrounded by six cats that own her heart and soul." ooooh, fuel those stereotypes. LOL
There are also several other rather amusing figures and links on her page like the "tickle me Freud". Wow, I think I really need a Tickle Me Freud. "Dementophobia is the Fear of Insanity. And if you suffer from it, you better keep away from Tickle Me Freud. Because if you're not insane already, this twisted toy will drive you over the edge. You should also not buy one if you suffer from Geliophobia (Fear of Laughter), because Tickle Me Freud will crack you up. When you press Sigmund's foot, he shakes and lets out a peculiar series of laughs and giggles that'll have you laughing along with him." *snicker*

Failed “Pick Up” Line
"Did it hurt?"
"What?"
"When you fell from heaven?"
"Not as much as my foot up your ass if you don't step off in the next 5 seconds."
hee hee

Fun Bumper Stickers
Jesus loves you...but everyone else thinks you are an ass.
Impotence..Nature's way of saying "No hard feelings,"
The proctologist called....they found your head.
Everyone has a photographic memory....some just don't have any film.
Save your breath...You'll need it to blow up your date.
Your ridiculous little opinion has been noted.
I used to have a handle on life...but it broke off.
WANTED: Meaningful overnight relationship.
Some people just don't know how to drive...I call these people "Everybody But Me,"
Heart Attacks...God's revenge for eating His animal friends.
Don't like my driving? Then quit watching me.
If you can read this...I can slam on my brakes and sue you.
Some people are only alive because it is illegal to shoot them.
Try not to let your mind wander...It is too small and fragile to be out by itself.
I used to be apathetic, but now I just don't care! (I used to have this one - really!)

What is Your Element?



Your Element is Fire


Your power color: red

Your energy: hot

Your season: spring

Like a fire, you are full of power and light.
A born leader, you easily draw people toward you.
You are full of courage and usually up for anything dangerous.
You have a huge ego and love to be the center of attention.

What Element Are You?


Hey - I wouldn't say I have a huge ego!(?) The rest is pretty spot-on, though. My results are not at all a surprise considering that I am an Aries with Leo moon & Sagg. rising (fire, fire and fire). I would expect nothing less. heh

The Bigger Picture
I came to a realization last night – actually more than one, but the one that stands out is the fact that my problems really are so small. I have a nice house, a good car, my family is healthy and has plenty to eat, good health care. I have so much to be thankful for.

There are an estimated 30,000 people each day that die due to poverty. That’s one person every 3 seconds. …and it’s all so unnecessary.

The gap between the worlds's rich and poor has never been wider. Malnutrition, AIDS, conflict and illiteracy are a daily reality for millions. But it isn't chance or bad luck that keeps many of these people trapped in bitter, unrelenting poverty. It's man-made factors like a glaringly unjust global trade system, a debt burden so great that it suffocates any chance of recovery and insufficient and ineffective aid.

The ONE Campaign is a new effort to rally Americans to fight the emergency of global AIDS and extreme poverty. Through The ONE Campaign, and many other connected efforts worldwide, each ONE of us can make a difference. Together as ONE we can change the world.

The ONE Declaration:

“WE BELIEVE that in the best American tradition of helping others help themselves, now is the time to join with other countries in a historic pact for compassion and justice to help the poorest people of the world overcome AIDS and extreme poverty. WE RECOGNIZE that a pact including such measures as fair trade, debt relief, fighting corruption and directing additional resources for basic needs – education, health, clean water, food, and care for orphans – would transform the futures and hopes of an entire generation in the poorest countries, at a cost equal to just one percent more of the US budget. WE COMMIT ourselves - one person, one voice, one vote at a time - to make a better, safer world for all.”

World leaders are meeting in Scotland in July at a global summit - the G8. We need to urge them to do what they must do: end unfair trade policies & ensure trade justice, find a way to end the debt crisis, and deliver much more aid and make sure it’s of highest quality. We, as a world community, have got to get our priorities straight.

They're not asking for our money - they're asking for our voices. Sign the declaration here and add your voice. I did.

There is so much more that can be done, but it's a wonderful start.

Glad to hear that you're yourself again. I'm Earth. I agree with most of it but my mood swings can be such that I really don't think I have a calming effect. Still, I like the idea of being earth.

Your Element is Water
Your power colors: blue and aqua

Your energy: deep

Your season: winter

Like the ocean, you evoke deep feelings and passion.
You have an emotional, sensitive, and spiritual soul.
A bit mysterious, you tend to be quiet when you are working out a problem.
You need your alone time, so that you can think and dream.

I'm metal. Pretty accurate.

You are persistent (and maybe even a little bit stubborn).
If you see something you want, you go for it.
You have a lot of strength, and it's difficult to get you down.
Very logical, you tend to analyze everything going on in your life.

Geez...sorry to hear that you got attacked by the blue funk that got me as well. Must be something going around in the Aether...

Nice to see the world governments making a step towards forgiving the debts in Africa. Now if only they could forgive some of mine, and grant me some health insurance that didn't eat up half of my paycheck in copays and prescriptions...

Gene Wilder is 72???????? I had no idea. I'm stunned to think he is that old. I agree with everything you said about him and fell in love with him reading Gilda's book too. Wow.

And funny one, magz... :)

Do you really know about the One Campaign? Everyone is really believing that they only just want your name. What they don't tell you up front is what they really want is $21 billion dollars of YOUR tax money. So to that I say No. When all these celebrities start public putting up some of there money I might consider it. More info in my blog.
