One step closer to sucess, I havent officially dumped the magic word but the design of the other site is near finished. (the design is really simple.) Today is my fathers birthday, I miss being able to spend it with him and giving him a cake the whole shebang. I sent him a card though and will give him a call.
I realized I have led sad existance according to the journal, So here is the updates as they happened.
The little bird maude - the day before we were going to release her, she mysteriously died. And once again I was heart broken.
This year has been really terrible in the pet area.
Last weekend we found a three legged dog wandering the streets, no collar no license, so we took him home called the humane society and police dept. and inquired if anyone was looking a small dogs with three legs. At the time they claimed no one was looking for such an animal. So we had him for an entire weekend, got him a leash, collar, food, all the necessities. We named him and checked a few more times in hopes of finding the owner.Still nothing. Monday rolls around, we named him Arthur, and while taking him out to the lawn his rightful owner an old man estatic to be reunited runs up "peanut!" Which was the perfect name that we couldn't seem to find. It felt really great and then bittersweet at the same time. Now really sad part about it was the old man had been looking for him after peanut/arthur had been missing for an hour with no help from the police. Which is funny because they have called me twice about returning the dog since he has been returned. Same lady, I asked her to write it down. till later

Subject:The sum of things
Time:01:25 pm
Starting today. On the mark, set, go. I have been in a think tank of sorts for about a week. Tired of my surroundings and blank expressions. It is time for a change. I have decided to for go the collective magic word. Which could lead to some rivalry, but I am dead with fatigue and trying and trying working my fingers to the bone. Not to mention the constant nagging in the back of my head,much to much on my Plate. I have been desperate to finish the new site, but have been working alone. In doing so I decided that if I am doing all of this why not do it the way I want. Why should a group have the enjoyment of a finshed project when the weight has been pulled by an individual. What is the point? I can't seem to find one.

This last week has been... where did it go? nevermind that, In the begining, say monday I was really pining for the chance to have a pet again. I was dreaming up all sorts of animals that I could call my own and naming them, like say if I could get a cat, I would name it lemon and so on...
Tuesday came upon me before I knew it and all of those daydreams had ended and I was sans a little pet of my own. Until my mom telephone in a frantic manner saying that my little brother had found a fledgling bird no more than a few days old in the back of my fathers truck. (her neighborhood is occupied by many a stray cat and she feared that it might become part of the food chain, and if it would be possible if I could care for the poor thing. She searched for the nest that it may have fell from but could find none.
So I accepted the tiny bird not really knowing what to do with it. Within 15 minutes of accepting it I sorta realized I knew nothing of birds what to feed it and so on. I called the missouri conservation dept in hopes that they may take it and care for it, but alas they wanted me to put it outside and "leave it to nature" which I imagine means that it didn't have a chance. so I then researched and came to the point that I could try to nurse it until it could be released.
I found out that she is a female cardninal and we named her maude. She is has now doubled is size and is up to flying four feet at a time, and she is incredibly cute.

So since last april 30th the apartment has been finished *no more construction* yea! Leighton has recorded three more bands. I have the site near finished, and every thing seems to be coming together. I am really excited about the next few weeks, Leightons birthday is the fifth so I have been scrabbling around is secret making plans for a fete, and to make his gifts, funny enough though the same weekend of his birthday is the ragtime festival in sedaila. Where in his mom Susan Cordell will be playing with other great pianists. If you live around or want an entertaining holiday be there. Any way this is a short update but one in the same.

Time:03:43 pm
So I took a two day vacation, Completely impulsive. Went back to omaha, the 27-29th. We stayed with my dad which was great. I'd say the trip was pure leisure but retrospectively we were truely always on the go. We went to lincoln to check out the obsessive consumption: death of market research show in richards hall at the university of nebraska at lincoln. Really impressive, I can't even imagine how much work went into the project. Then back to omaha where in I met up with some friends and talked for awhile, then on to the son,ambulance / tilly and the wall / OF Montreal show at the sokol underground. All in all it was really entertaining show. The highlight of course was OFMontreal. Leighton was completely estatic, and I have to admit I was as well It was the best show I have been to all year. With that said till next time...ta ta

I am terrible at updating this. No excuse but to say I am strapped for time. Let's see where am I? It is nine minutes into monday morning. I caved on the old friend front. She came by apologized for past and present and I caved just like a total pushover and then we went to some garage sales.Typical an apology and then a prospect of shopping and I am total putty.Sad sad and it is even non-consumserism week to boot.

recent events, Last night I ran into a wayward friend (in the supermarket of all places)one who in my adolecent years I thought of as my best friend. Today it has left me both numb and nostalgic. I had always the grandous dream that she were one of those friends who I would cherish through out my life. It now strikes me very odd that I would rather dash that dream and chalk it up to the fact being that people change.

ahhh, today has been so rainy and nice. The sorta day you want to wear pink and jump around in goloshes.
Last night turned out to be pretty good, after the coffee house closed we had a private party, which was enjoyable. Everyone was in good form, until a certain person decided to make a scene. As per usual the unnamed person was completely beligerent and wanted to drive home. ( it would have been less aggrivating if this sort of thing happened once in a blue moon but instead frequently the scene is made. I am afraid it is a ploy for attention. And in the past I have promised myself not to involve "X".). Finally after it became overtly ugly he opted for the safe ride home. Blahhh, But the good of last night was mainly that we are to start practicing for academic curiosities on saturdays, yea...It is one step closer to required practicing.

Time:04:55 pm
Yikes I completely forgot that I was going to make this work....so her it is another entry.
I imagine the idea of live journal is to post more often then once a month and here I am feeling guilty that I haven't lived up to the my potential.

Okay, for the update....
current projects..
*organizing KattWalk (from glitter) baby shower which includes me making a layette set, and a square for researchasaurus' blanket.
*Organizing an new zine, yet to be named but coming right along, I hope to start circulating it around may. I plan then to distribute themed issues every two months. But so far the contributions from various friends have been really great.
* Finishing up the construction on my flat, which is going to be great when it is finished everything will have a place and a place for everything.
* Finishing the construction of the magicword which is now up but sorta like a empty house with all the lights on. www.carthagegoodneighbor.com/boutique.asp
but that also gives way to the projects at hand mainly knitted goods, reconstructed clothing, and a few other facets to the site's lively hood.
* I know I am leaving many of the projects out but here I am board of this so I'll leave the others on my list out.
Theoretically I will finish these projects in due time but I add projets at such a rate that I foresee a break down at some point. Then again maybe not, maybe I have the determination to keep on.
Who says that you are what you eat, it should have been you are what you do, it makes more sense that way.

So, in other news the bridge of my cello is broken and I'm awaiting an new aubert bridge, which I hope is soon on its merry way, because I am deprived of my practicing without it. It is all so very sad really.
I finally subscribed to venus (my local book seller quit carrying it much to my dismay)
And I am soon hoping to join a little scooter/bike gang which is very cool, I am making patches for all the members, and ordering my dream vespa if all goes well, so when the time comes you can blame me for the strawberry scented exhaust. Fingers crossed.
yet another good thing is the possiblitlity of a new job wherein I will make my way to financial freedom, It pays a ghastly amount of money for menial labor, But I am really excited with the possibility and so far so good, It will be the end of my worries of debt and maybe I can even began saving for the foregone alternative.(whatever that may be.)fingers crossed yet again.
My sister has disappeared once again and sending my family into total chaos simultaneously, last time she disappeared she came back married so for comedy sake I really want to know the ending of this stunt.
wow, so really a lot is going on.
till next time

um here it is a begining to an end or is it means to an end, journals that others are meant to read seems a bit strange. Regardless here I am when I should be sound asleep. I am attempting to use this in order to stay two steps a head in the manner that I buckle down and document the actual things I try to finish ie projects, and various things for the magic word.
So day one...
More work upon the "bird rug"
Mixed tapes for leighton and the coffee house
Coming up with ideas for the glitter blank book which should soon arrive via postal service. I may try my hand at making my instalation a pop-up chapter of various novelties.
So there you have it things to do
I only hope that I will have the time to read a book among those to-dos.
tra-la for now
