Sarah Palin gets it very wrong, Richard Tillman explains...

I have some fabulous friends on Facebook, who like many of my blog friends, I've never met. Yet we agree on so many things, I can only imagine if we ever got together it would be the most fantastic BBQ going. A grill in every corner; one for the vegetarians, one for the meat lovers, one to pretend to grill babies for the atheists to laugh and snicker about and the last one for marshmallows, s'mores and other BBQ'd orgy of sweets.

I had one friend share a link to this quick video of Sarah Palin speaking in San Jose on the 14th Oct.

Oblivious on purpose to the fact that the Tillmans are highly outspoken atheists. I mean - really outspoken.

"I don't go into a church and say "This is bullshit," Don't come to my brother's service and tell us he's with god. He's simply not with fucking god."

It's highly offensive, ignorant and disrespectful. Palin is clueless. Richard gave this interview two weeks prior to Palin's speech. Does she have no one fact checking for her? Is the family's wishes and atheism so insignificant and inconvenient for to her cause that she hopes no one will notice?

~~~ now for something inappropriate ~~~

Is it wrong for me to have a swooning crush on Richard Tillman? Wow he's hot! Outspoken, badass hot. He's oozing Alpha charm. IMDB has no age listed for him, which I'm happy about. I hate that I'm reaching that creepy cougar age. If he's younger than 30 - don't tell me! I'm nearing 40 and ovulating so I just can't help myself.

So young, so bitchy!

That's me it seems! I did the blog trawler thingie at Urlai (click the blog title for link) which tries to guess the blog's purpose or theme. Here's the sum up: "lyvvielimelight.blogspot.com is probably written by a female somewhere between 18-25 years old. The writing style is personal and upset most of the time."

Upset?! I'm not upset. Do I come across as upset? Crap I've made a boring blog by vetching all the time! You must all think I'm some cross, angry ranting  type person! I'm not. I'm really rather laid back, quiet, highly opinionated, youthful with bouts of hyperactive anxiety. I wouldn't say I'm "upset"

Do you think I'm upset? Do I blog as an upset person?

Well, not counting this post...

And even then I'm not really upset, upset. I simply feel misrepresented! Although, the 18-25 year old bit has perked me up. If it can't get that right - then it's obviously bunk! It's my overwhelming Yootful exHooberance!

I should try and be a tad more academic. I know I know, it all goes to shit after leaving school.

Stephen Fry adds to the trend...

He's part of this trend that seems to be telling me, I should be writing. Truthfully I need someone to tell me to not feel bullied by those word Nazis who will red pen my every sentence and crush my spirit.

Ooer I love the caress of "Sound-sex" and I love Stephen Fry.

I follow trends, not signs...

It's interesting to note that there are trends that occur that are coincidental on the surface but not really when looked at closer. I've noticed a trend guiding me to write. I've been actively avoiding writing as of late. I don't know why. I think I got bored with writing. I think I got angry at writing. All the effort and thinking I'm clever with words that I refuse to share with others in case they tell me I'm not as clever as I think I am, which means I must not think I'm as clever as I think I am so it becomes an exercise is self loathing and then wallowing silently in big pouty bottom lipped pity. I keep my personal dramas to myself, and trust me,  you're glad for that.

Now it's trends. See, I don't believe in signs anymore. I used to, but not now. That goes away when we remove gods, ghosts, angels and the whole supernatural category from the equation. No, it's trends now! So I've been whining silently that I want to write. Whimper, whine, more bejeweled and Facebook to avoid the growing hole of wanting to write. I won't look at the books on how to write on my shelf. I'm not going to look at the notebooks I've collected over the years with half efforts. I'll not even go near the stationary aisle and want to pickup an fresh, empty 5 subject notebook to fill with whatever my wee heart desires. I think I'd finally moved past the yearning and into something else entirely (crocheted Sassyface a cardigan - it looks awesome!) when someone, some random person on whose blog I used to follow, under the folder of "Writing" on my google-reader which I've not read in months because I'm not worthy and just didn't want to be jealous and crushed all the time reading of others successes, mentioned it's coming time for NaNoWriMo.

Fuck! Just Grrrrr. Fuck fuck fuck. Usually I remember this on the 3rd of Nov. or some other late date and shrug and forget it all. But now I have weeks! Even though one of those weeks in November I'll be on vacation. Heeeeey...I'd forgotten that fact until just now. I'm not going to be near a computer for one of those weeks! Ha! Fuck you trends! No need to buy a notebook, or write a synopsis or even plot! No need to torment myself with my lack of ability! No need to pay it any mind at fucking all.

Why don't I feel better?

Testing a hypothesis...

I found a crochet pattern I like but it's in a slavic language I don't understand. Probably German. I'm going to try and copy/paste here and then let google translate it.

...well that didn't work.

I was supposed to delete this after. This is the cardigan I'm wanting to make. I can get google to translate the page, and I'd hoped I could get the PDF translated the same way by downloading, copy/paste here then google-translate that. No joy. the PDF was saved as a gif or something and is treated as an image. I'm not motivated to retype the German. I don't even have the keyboard characters for half of it.

I'm pretty sure I can find a similar pattern and try and figure out some kind of Frankenstien mash-up of a cardigan.

What's your favourite colour, Roxy? ;)
