A repost from 2007, and 2008. Just to say that at this time of year, and especially this year with the economy still in the trench, there are children who need a "kitty" of their very own. -pale
kitty, in better days, before the stuffing came out.
Its that time of year again.
I call it the annual stressfest (otherwise known as Christmas.)
I bet you can tell by the title that this is probably not a political diary?
No, this is a diary about something entirely different.

*pale taps her black nails on the desk and thinks......*
Oh! Ya! Same gig from a couple years back....When anyone who protested proposed laws that invaded our privacy was labelled as a paedophile.
This is a regular occurrence with the Harper Government. When a bill fails (whether Through public outrage, or because the writ is dropped when Harper shuts down parliament) they bring it back with violins and boxes of kleenex.
I always think it's a "to do" list they must have posted at the PMO. They will push it through in any way they can.
My good friends at Dammit Janet have outlined what is going on. Dr Michael Geist has also looked at the new legislation being proposed.

Or, Happy Halloween.
It has been resurrected and once again graces our living room.
The gurlies and I put lights and pumpkins and cobwebs on it. A black cat is the "star."
Blessed Be, and may the next year be all that you need it to be.

I have said it before. I am a walkin' talkin' eating disorder.
I started purging and crash dieting at the age of 12. Fast forward a few years, and I found myself a size 22. At the moment I am a much smaller size, purely a reaction to stress. Just could not eat. Period.
So, I can give you the skinny, as it were, on how people act and react to my various sizes, it's an interesting thing actually.
When I was a larger lady, I always dressed fairly well, hair and makeup always done. Despite that, it became common to be treated as invisible. Lots of people offer dieting advice too, unasked for and unwanted and not always in a kindly way. But that is always a given, the holier than thou art types think they need to save you from yourself.

Can you imagine how it would go if you could do this?
Oh man. I wish. And in the past, I have engineered a few doozies.

Well, it is that time again. All the Pumpkins, the rain. The Blech.
But, Halloween is only 28 short days away! (There is a countdown on the sidebar. The ladies check it daily)
I was rummaging around in my Hard drive here., and found an old gif. It was my first foray into animation, from 1998.
Take it away George.....

The little ones are already deciding on the Halloween costumes. Today, the smallest wants to be Toothless the Dragon.
This is actually a very cool idea, because Toothless is very much like a black cat. Stay tuned, we may even get some pics when the costume is made.
Unless there is some mindo chango that goes on. Very possible.

Listening to old Blondie today in the batcave....
From the CBGB days, around the same time the Ramones were playing there....
To round off this episode of Blonde Ambition?

It's in my house. So far this week it's eaten my concealer, my Zippo lighter and now this post.
Where will it end?

Here in the Batcave, it has been very quiet online as perhaps some have noticed.
But, I have been making some headway in cleaning out the jetsom and flotsam that have invaded this space. There's a whole bin (the massive kind you rent. Like on that show, hoarders) full. **GULP*
But the stuff in the bin? It's mostly not mine, so. Onward.
I have also been going through some of my very old files on my PC. I am a file hoarder.
But, I digress.
I found this one again. I have posted it on youtube in all its raw glory. It cracks me up when I need a smile. The little star is now 8, and looks nothing like the little Campbell's soup baby anymore......33 seconds.
