I am outta here!

After much bitching, I've decided to move over to I don't care much for their blah templates, and I haven't figured out how to put up my flickr feed on it yet, but the blogrolling shit was the final straw. New templates just don't seem to work here anymore-maybe because they switched it to NewBlogger? I'm not sure. I won't trash this one entirely, but wordpress seems to work a lot better, even for a free site. I just wish I could bring my comments over, but I won't pay to upgrade HaloScan just to import my comments to a site that has a pretty decent comment thingy anyway.

So update your feeds and head on over to my new covenstead. See ya there.

I'm such a failure....

as a 1930's housewife. I scored slightly higher than she did, but 3 points isn't saying much.


As a 1930s wife, I am
Very Poor (Failure)

Take the test!

Sadly, I can understand this.

These idiots spent more on the paperwork to put a lien on the house than $0.01. Many moons ago, I worked at a bank and had overdraft protection on my account. I had to tap into it and I thought it was all paid back. When I quit I was sent a statement for $0.02. I called someone there and they said not to worry about it-they would clear that stupid balance. I got 2 more statements and finally had to go to their office and pay them. Those statements cost them way more than the stupid 2 cents. I should have let it go for a while, but I had a feeling the fuckers would have turned me over to collections. I didn't want that on my credit report, but would have loved doing that just so I could pay it and have them take a "loss" of a penny. Of course I doubt a collection agency would have even bothered-they would have been too busy laughing.

Another reason why I'm Pagan

No soup communion for you!

A SC catholic church is advising Obama supporters to refrain from receiving communion. WTF? All because he is pro-choice. Never mind the fact that he wants to withdraw our troops from Iraq as soon as possible. I guess it's ok to kill adults, but not unintended pregnancies. I am pro-choice. Outlawing abortions means only outlaws will have abortions. I am fortunate to not know of a time when women died because they had abortions during barbaric procedures. Seems like the church is saying that we should also disregard his stance on economics and we should continue the downward spiral that McCain promised us. The hypocrites also forget about the crusades which were little more than sanctioned murders. I thought our votes were to be private. So do the paritioners stay seated during communion, thus announcing their vote? Or do they go up and pretty much lie about their political beliefs while accepting Christ's teachings symbolically? Either way they can't win. I never realized that so many people-especially catholics voted on one issue, and one issue alone. Narrow minded fuckers.

Agatha is getting to that age-she's getting ready for college. *sob* My baby is growing up-much too fast. We went for a trip the past few days to Big Assed University to check it out. She's never seen a college campus and for some reason decided she wants to go to this one. Unfortunately, it's out of state, which means out of state tuition, which is nearly triple what in-state tuition would cost. Fortunately, with her grades, class standing and ACT scores, she stands a good chance of not only getting in, but could possibly snag some super-scholarships. I hate to say it, but that is really the only way she can go to any college, much less one out of state. She fell in love with this place. She (and I) never realized just how much a college campus is really its own city, even in a big city. I would like her to see an In State Big Assed University though. I think it would help her realize that all BAUs offer the same sense of community. And while it has a reputation for being a big party school, that doesn't matter to her. She was never into that shit and I honestly can't see her changing. Again, most BAUs are party schools, so it wouldn't matter where she goes, it would be the same. I did have to laugh though. The student newspaper had an ad for a local Head-Shop. And there were signs in the dorms about what was and wasn't allowed in the dorm rooms, one of which wasn't allowed was bongs. I loves me some irony.
This visit is now a real motivator for her to finally get her shit together and start filling out applications. She procrastinates so much on this stuff. I had to start this one for her. She claims she didn't realize that there isn't any information she needed from me on this. But if she wants to go to this BAU (or any one for that matter) she needs to get moving. The deadline for most of them is December, if she wants to qualify for some of the bigger scholarships that they offer. Time is running out.

The one plus side to Out-Of-State BAU is that a Blog-Bud lives a few hours away and I could potentially finally meet her in person. I wish I was able to do that when we were there, but just couldn't swing it this time.
