Okay, Diana just reminded me that it is also Jacknife's birthday on Sunday soooo we are going to make it official-unofficial birthday dinner for Kristy AND Jacknife.

Day: Sunday, Dec 14th
Time: 8 PM
Place: Chuy's Plano
3408 Central Expressway
Plano, TX 75074

And those who are up for it or able to, it seems like Jacknife was already planning on going to the club? I was considering it as well, hey I have no reason NOT to go!

So after Chuy's, possibly (or definitely, for some) Church-ing.

Please reply if you plan on coming so we can have a possible headcount. I am making this entry PUBLIC so non-friends can comment. So feel free to spread it.

Current Mood: excited excited

I was just thinking. I have wanted to do this for a while. I still have a large percentage of the clothes I was going to get rid of in a bag in the sewing room, plus I have more I think I want to get rid of..

Would anyone be interested in doing a clothing swap? Basically, bring your old clothes (in working order, please) and get a ticket for each item, then exchange that ticket for someone else's item. Then anything that doesn't find a new home, can go to goodwill.

Let's do a poll!

Please add any additional thoughts in comments.. I am making this open to the public so if you have friends who may be interested, please send them this way

PS: Please do NOT fill out this poll if a) you're a guy b) you don't live in Dallas and cannot participate.. I am trying to keep it accurate.. thanks

For the first time in my 25 years I truly feel patriotic. I feel pride in being an American. I feel proud that American's have made the right choice. I am transfixed by our soon-to-be-President's words. For so long I have cringed and been ashamed of our so called leader. But now we have an amazing, inspiring, beautiful, passionate, understanding, empathic man to whom we can look to guide our country. An INTELLIGENT man. Someone who has actually experienced pain, who has experienced confusion, someone who has experienced oppression. This is the Kennedy of our generation.

Everybody is entitled to what they earn. But how can someone turn their back on their fellow man? I remember being a small child, and we went to the grocery store once. We were on food stamps most of my childhood, if not all of it. We bought our limited groceries with our paper food stamps, and we were ready to go home. There was this family in the parking lot of the shopping center with a car full of crap, a couple of kids and some skinny parents. I don't remember all the details because I was very young still but I just remember crying. I hurt inside because, although we had very little, these people had less than we did. I said that we had to give them something. Bread. Milk. Something. So we did, and my little child heart felt better.

I feel like Barack Obama is the kind of person who would give even when he had little. I have HOPE that he will turn this country into one that we can be proud of. One that men actually reach out to those who are suffering. We are one of the richest, fattest countries in the world, yet there are people within our borders who suffer, needlessly.

Nobody says that you should be stripped of what you deserve. But there is a line that has been crossed. People are just selfish to the core. They believe that the world revolves around them and fuck all. This is not the world I want to live in. And this is not the world that my president, Barack Obama, wants to live in.

I can't wait for the future. My heart is just overflowing with joy. This is a day for the history books. Skin color or not. The feeling is just indescribable.

Let's say you're a hobgoblin for 24 hours. What sort of havoc would you wreak? Or: If a baby of unknown origins suddenly fell into your care, would you keep it? What would you name it?


I don't know. Is it a cute baby or an ugly baby? Just kidding. I guess that it would probably depend on our life and if we were able to properly provide for a baby. If we could not provide it with the ideal home, I think the baby should go to someone who could. If we kept it, I would name it....Bambi Throckmorton. Boy or girl.
