LOVE PINK!!! And I am 46!!! WIll post this on mine during my week-long Wake-Up-Stupid-a-thon postings!

Keep it simple stupid. One day at a time. And all the other cliches. One word based on 18 years experience - do please take everything with a grain of salt. If you want a plumber call a plumber. Drunks know drunk but they absolutely do not know real estate or neurology or which short cut is the best way home. Do listen and absorb but beware them trying to take over your life. We are, after all, control freaks.

Which means you should ignore everything I have just now said.

Think I will go anonymous here and lose the traffic . . . you are a brave and wonderful woman and I am inspired by your honesty!

Anon: She's pretty rad, imo... Good lord--watch out--next I'll say "gnarly."

Oh and how cool are you? (That is, whoever you are!) Sound non-advice that I will not be sure not to take... But I WILL take the compliment since it comes after the disclaimer. Thank you!!!

I don't go under cover and sometimes get my sorry ass in a lot of trouble. :) But I don’t hide.

I’m 60 years old. I can't remember one - not one president of any party who has been respected by the media, and consequently a lot of the public. Regan got voted in on Hollywood Glam, Jack Kennedy was prettier than Palin, and all of America lusted for Bill Clinton. How did Truman sleep after he dropped the bomb? How fucking lonely did he feel? What president hasn't had constituents who are poor and starving and broken? The Civil War still has the largest death count. Am I pleased with Bush? Hell, no. But what president have we allowed ourselves to be pleased with? Bleh. I hate politics. I hate cheap shots. Sane people become crazy when they *talk* politics. Crazy people become crazier. I tell people to go ahead and hate me for my opinions, which are pretty bland. I've seen a lot of presidents come and go. I'm 60 years old and don't give a fuck if people hate me.

But that's just this woman's opinion. :)
