Sensory Overload

I posted this photo just because it was what I wanted to look at after a day like today.  I only wish I could hear and smell the ocean as well...

Tom DeLay attacks the Supreme Court.  Pope Benedict XVI--God's Rottweiler.  Newt Gingrich positioning himself for a run at the presidency.  Mass murders, car bombs, and kidnappings in Iraq.  Bush's anti-UN nominee for UN ambassador shelved.  TOO much. 

Plus, I spend two hours attending a meeting that I THOUGHT was going to lead to major local contacts for my business.  Instead, it was a thoroughly bureaucratic, committee-speak snooze.  I never imagined an organization that is supposed to be about promoting the community would be so cliqueish, negative, and caught up in red tape. 

What a let down!  Felt like I'd been run over by a truck when I got home.  And then I had to iron and pack for my weekend event in Astoria.  I'll be sallying forth tomorrow morning to attempt the first solo set-up of the booth.  I just hope I don't damage myself or any of the equipment...  I was given some hope, though, when we were out for Chinese last night.  My fortune cookie said something to the effect that I would travel and get a lot of money.  Seemed to bode well for the weekend.  Wish me luck...     


  1. The picture is great, the day horrible -- good luck making lots of $$$ today!

  2. a heartfelt good luck wish

  3. What a beautiful picture and I wish you the best of luck! ~ Lori

  4. This beautiful photo looks like a painting.  And I wish you the best of luck on your solo set-up.  Hmm...sensory overload; this is exactly why I try to stay away from news programs.  I can't handle the constant bombardment of terrible happenings.  I know, it's the old ostrich with its head in the sand approach but it works for me.

  5. Fantastic picture, as usual. I've found that as long as a committee is tied up in red tape and arguments they don't actually have to decide anything. :-)


  6. Hope your weekend is fabulous!!!  Make lots of money!!!

  7. May your weekend be full of fun and all the money you could imagine for a solo ride!  By the way, that is such a restful picture!  God's Rottweiler?  Can't wait to hear your thoughts on that!  Lisa

  8. Hi Lisa-
    "God's Rottweiller". man I have to agree with you on that one. I have read so many articles on this man and I have to say my profound disppointment. I am not a Catholic, I am a Christian though and I guess it would have turned out different for all.
    Sorry about your disappointing meeting, what a waste of dam time!

    Thanks for the kind comment Lisa, I love ya for them!

    Heehheehehee It looks like it came true. I haven't been paying much attention to the news lately. I got tired of hearing about the Pope so I tuned it out for a while. I didn't hear about Newt! That is just laughable! :-) ---Robbie
