Gallery Nucleus is proud to present A Handful of Dust 25 Years of Sandman, an exhibition celebrating the 25th anniversary of DC Comics’ and Neil Gaiman’s critically acclaimed comic book series, The Sandman

The Witch’s Diary: Gypsy’s Magick Spell/7 Card Reading

1/This is you:
The Wheel of Fortune

First impression:  Jupiter (expansion, money issues, business issues, growth– an interest in, or an active participation in, business activities).  The idea of three aspects to some area of your life (the triple goddess; three times ’round (3 marriages, serious relationships, etc.); three choices; three victories/three failures; three days/months/weeks until an important event–if you actually have something specific coming up in one of these time frames, and there is a decision involved, know that it’s going to turn out in your favor.

As I’ve said, you must tend to be lucky in games of chance, or life in general.  Lady Luck tends to sit on your shoulder, don’t brush her off– this can be done by any number of ways; with…

Quitting Smoking

It won’t be so much easier to quit smoking if I didn’t ENJOY it so much.
I love my Marlboro Ultra Light 100’s.
I’ll quit after my 20th Stuyvesant High School Reunion next weekend.
I’ve got the gum, which tastes like crap. (And I have to chee three pieces at a time.)
I’ve got Electronic Cigarettes.  (Mango flavoured.)
But it’s my last vice!!!
I gave up everything else when I found out I was pregnant, just before Memorial Day Weekend 2004.
And now I’m giving this one up…

Holy Crap (and how did crap get holy anyway? was it blessed?)

So, now that I’ve jumped into the 21st century and have a computer that isn’t a hand-me-down, I decided to take a scroll (get it? sCroll? not sTroll? I need to slow down on the vodka lol) thru previous posts. Yikes! Distinct lack of photos where they should be! I was going to get into reading some fiction, but i’m bound in blood to produce at least one REAL blog a day. As I’m not sure if weekends are included, I’m going to see if I can’t get ahead.

I would also like to re-do those posts that say they’ve got pictures (I swear they did when they were posted!), but since I have to change my phone so often, the video of a huge needle going into my knee is probably gone 😦 but I can easily re-do a duct tape wallet, especially now that I’ve got ways of adding clear plastic so you can add photos. Like this (I’m going to add a photo. I promise.):

In case I don’t get to say this, Happy Kill a Native American Day to all who celebrate.

More importantly, Happy Hanukkah to everyone who celebrates. I’m sure I’ll get to bitching about schools being forced to add Kwanzaa if they celebrate Hanukkah and Xmas. (Btw, in “Xmas”, the “X” stands for “Christ”. Yet when Christina Aguelara– or however you spell it– went to “Xtina”, we were supposed to call her “Christina” NOT “Christ-tina” as it should’ve been. Something that’s been bugging me. I dealt with Prince becoming a symbol much better. But then I don’t have an embarrassing secret crush on him.)

Also, as I now have a computer, I will be adding a contact form at the bottom. I would like to find out more about the other awesome bloggers on WordPress (and elsewhere), so please, send me links, comments, dirty pictures.

Blessed Be

i plan to use the laptop for WRITING!!!

i will blog more often, begin working on The Great American Novel (which focuses on a South American family who emigrate to the lower east side – LES – of NY aka NYC aka Manhattan). considering that statistics estimate by 2025 more people in America will be speaking Spanish as a first language, this probably will be the Great American Novel – Moderna.

20th High School Reunion

Apparently I am going to my 20th High School Reunion. I’ve decided to go stag because I’ve been to a reunion that wasn’t mine and it’s not much fun. Reunions are places to reminisce about the past, and catch up on what has happened since. I was at a 5yr reunion of a man who had done extremely well- except that he was still in the closet. Yes, I was his “beard”, his pretend girlfriend. It was uncomfortable for both of us. Point being,  if you’re going to your reunion,  plan ahead of time what you’re willing to share and what you’d like to “keep in the closet”. He could’ve said he was single and focused on his career. By bringing a “girlfriend”, the good-looking but always single in high school guy could’ve avoided the interest in his fake gf (me). I’m already jotting down the high points of the last 20 years and how much I’m willing to share and with whom. I’m also going stag to see if I can cross any of my high school crushes off my list ; p
