What a shocker.:/
Actually, HuffPo had an article about this last night. I meant to post it but was so absorbed by the debate that I totally forgot.

Sharmeka Moffitt, Louisiana Woman, Tells Police 3 Men Set Her On Fire, Wrote KKK On Her Car

It's still on the front page as of 11:15 am.

Tragic and sickening.

All the costumes that I go "okay I could work with that skirt length" are all for plus sized women. Like why are theirs a normal length??

Publicity for anything small and local is next to impossible right now. How do I compete with Binders and Big Bird and Battleship Bayonets? My poor little show.

Felix Baumgartner was on CanadaAM this morning. he told the interviewer that he didn't enjoy himself when he made that jump because there was so much to think about, including the fact that his oxygen would run out in 10 minutes!

but that view from 23 miles up... i hope he took a few seconds to admire it!

It does get annoying. Half of my visual field is smeary, and I need super shades just to go outside

I'm lucky that's it's treatable, if not curable, though.

It does have a nice ring to it.

Speaking of Halloween costumes... When I dressed up saturday night I was going for a classic & classy late 60's/ early to mid 70's look. By the time I finished playing around with clothes & accessories, and looked in the mirror my first thought was
