Another fabulous San Fran week-up coming up:

Fleet Week---Hellllloooooo Sailors!

Columbus Day a/k/a Italian Heritage Day

And what will I be doing? Cleaning. Lots and lots of cleaning. It's a good thing beta_goddess is coming because the situation was dire even before the 2nd accident and since then it's gotten so alarming I actually had a dream where we got evicted and they were basically shoveling all our stuff out of the apartment. (This is sort of a flash-back to my adolescences, when we lived in fear of the land-lord actually seeing the condition of the place.)

I also need to get the goddess nails filled at and hopefully put in some writing time. (The song/story meme fics will all be done, I promise.)

But seriously. Scrubbing. Mopping. Scraping. And getting SHIT OUT OF THE HOUSE. This will also mean doping up on Benedryl because the dust and the cleansers are going to do a number on the old upper respiratory system.

And other random stuff: WARNING POLITICS AHEAD

Congratulations and Jubilations to President Barack Obama for winning the Nobel Peace Prize!

Happy Birthday to John Lennon. I know he might have believed in "above us only sky," but if there's a place for the good people to go where everybody gets a mansion and all the ice cream you can eat, I'm going to go out on a limb and assume he's there. (Hopefully jamming with George.)

Not like everybody's got oodles of money to throw around right now, but if you want to make a good (tax-deductible) donation:

National Association of Free Clinics

This ties into Keith Olbermann's special comment on Health Care. The idea is to help provide health-care to those who desperately need it AND make a political point as well.

Would you believe I actually got a call from the DNC asking me for money last night, while I was watching Keith? I gave them some, but first I got up in their face about how the party needs to whole-heartedly support the public option, and THEN I lectured the poor guy (who probably thought he could just read the script and get the $$$) about ACORN and the campaign against and how the Party needed to grow a pair and stand up against this BS. He didn't know who Rachel was, on the excuse that he didn't have cable. I spelled her name for him and told him to start down-loading the pod-casts. He said he would educate himself about the issue. I said he had to if he was going to do this kind of work because this is what the party needs to know about.

Then I gave him the money. Cause I'm that kind of a gal.

Song Lyric Prompt-a-Day 2009 Day 66

Prompts can be used for any fandom, pairing, or even original fic, if you like. (Yes, any.) All I ask is that you credit me with providing the prompt and comment with a link to the entry.

Prompt #266

You say I'm a dreamer
We're two of a kind
Both of us searching for some perfect world
We know we'll never find.
