It's so much better if you know what the original said....

From a 1949 Singer sewing manual:
"Prepare yourself mentally for sewing. Think about what you are going
do...never approach sewing with a sigh or lackadaisically. Good results
difficult when indifference predominates. Never try to sew with a sink
of dirty dishes or beds unmade. When there are urgent housekeeping
do these first so your mind is free to enjoy your sewing....When you
make yourself as attractive as possible. Put on a clean dress. Keep a
bag full of French chalk near your sewing machine to dust your fingers
intervals. Have your hair in order, powder and lipstick put on.... [If]
are constantly fearful that a visitor will drop in or your husband will
home and you will not look neatly put together, you will not enjoy your
sewing as you should."

From a 2002 Burning Man sewing manual:

Prepare yourself mentally for sewing. Chilled vodka for martinis
works well, but don't use a martini glass because it's too tippy. The
music of your choice should be running on random play so you don't
have to keep changing CD's.
Sew naked. It saves time when you need to try things on.
Make sure you have the appropriate materials. If it's not glitzy,
furry, shiny, bright, vinyl, irridescent, fluffy, sparkly, funky,
wild, metallic, leather, sequined, or glow-in-the-dark, it's not
worth making.
Drink another martini. The olives can be your lunch.
If you think you've added plenty of decoration to the finished
product, add 10% more.
Try on costume at least 5 times, dancing in front of your mirror to
see the full effect. Try it on again with high heels.
Drink more vodka straight from the bottle.
If you don't know how to sew, or don't have a sewing machine, use
glue, staples, or safety pins.
Hey, whatever works!

I'm president of the NikiSpice fan club...

here's a link to a review of her show in Seatlle.

.*.*. welcome to the three imaginary girls .*.*.

Niki presents a body of work about a haunting eight-year old Oaxacan girl, Bakuza. Her images peer at you, showing a child longing for approval and attention ? and yet also displaying a maturity, a confidence and a sensuality you can't imagine that a girl so young could possess.

and, um, some cowboy mention...

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

"My dad told me a long time ago if you get it from one person it's stealing," said Thompson, whose father was a football coach. "If you get it from two or three it's research. (My defense) just keeps evolving."

God, I can't wait for college football season to start. My friend Joel's worried that his girlfriend only pretends to not care that he spends 8 hours on Saturday and Sunday watching football.

Maybe I'll stop renting so much porn once football starts.

Maybe not.

George W. has asked the nation to spen 9/11/2 in a solemn patriotic manner by not questioning anything that the president does, and also by spending the day meditating on the lyrics to Hulk Hogan's 80's theme song, "Real American"

I am a real American, fight for the rights of every man,
I am a real American, fight for what's right, fight for your life!

When it comes crashing down, and it hurts inside,
Ya' gotta take a stand, it don't help to hide,
Well, you hurt my friends, and you hurt my pride,
I gotta be a man; I can't let it slide,
I am a real American, fight for the rights of every man,
I am a real American, fight for what's right, fight for your life!

I feel strong about right and wrong,
And I don't take trouble for very long,
I got somethin' deep inside of me,
And courage is the thing that keeps us free,
I am a real American, fight for the rights of every man,
I am a real American, fight for what's right, fight for your life!

Well you hurt my friends, and you hurt my pride,
I gotta be a man; I can't let it slide,
I am a real American, fight for the rights of every man,
I am a real American, fight for what's right, fight for your life!
I am a real American, fight for the rights of every man,
I am a real American, fight for what's right, fight for your life!

Wrestler attacked, mutilated by two men Sheriff's officials were searching Friday for two men who entered the home of a minor-league wrestler, beat him up and cut off his thumb using gardening shears.

Welch, whose thumb was not recovered, was treated at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital.

Officials said they are looking into a possible connection with the victim's line of work as a wrestler.

"There may be some sort of connection to the business he is in," Lewandowski said. "He is pointing us to some type of internal thing to do with his job."

Then he attaches a milking machine to my udder. The gentle squeezing of the milking machine doesn?t hurt.

Each day, I eat about 90 pounds of food (stuff like grass, corn, hay and grain) and I drink nearly a bathtub full of water each day. I get thirsty just thinking about it!

Taking the Train: How Graffiti Art Became an Urban Crisis in New York City. by Joe Austin | PopMatters Book Review "A vandal is somebody who throws a brick through a window. An artist is somebody who paints a picture on that window. A great artist is somebody who paints a picture on the window and then throws a brick through it."
