Shake Rattle And Roll

I had to put drops in my ear, so pardon me while I write sideways for a while. You don't mind, do you? I have to look at it sideways, I figure you might as well, too.

It's already been a topsy-turvey day. Y'all in California know what I mean, don't you? Tsunami warnings up and down the coast, from Vancouver, British Columbia, south to Mexico! I mean, I check the earthquake page religiously and literally already had the page open when I was talking to Poolagirl on instant messenger - and she stopped in mid-sentence, I think, to say there was a tsunami warning out!

Yeesh... Hopefully Michael's house is okay. Last I heard, NOAA had cancelled the tsunami alert - then put it right back on. Bizarre, truly bizarre.

For anyone reading using anything but IE for your browser, you won't see the filter, but this section of text is written vertically for anyone who IS using IE (assuming I coded it right.) I really should be in bed but my ear's been bothering me for days and I put in some peroxide drops (specially for ears, not the typical stuff you get in the brown bottle.) It's bubbling and frothing like crazy, to the point I've had to wipe my neck several times over. Ugh - I do NOT need a repeat of last year's ear infection!

I think I'm going to do a happy dance when I finally get my local phone and can finally disconnect EVERYTHING from my old place. That should happen this weekend, barring catastrophe. I'll probably end up on the phone all weekend, though. I have my call list started. Some people it's just to give them my number; others it's to yack without worrying about going over my minutes. Either way I'll be darned glad to get it done and switched over!

Well the ear drops are done (I used a syringe and washed out the last of the foam - otherwise I'd have gone certifiably nuts before it quit with the froth.) Hopefully Poolagirl and Michael and all of my other friends along the east coast are safe and warm and DRY!

So for tonight, bonne nuit and don't forget - there's a whole lotta shakin' going on out there!

Before - After

In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
