In my haste to get to work on time this morning, I accidentally left my cycling gloves hanging on the handlebars of my bike, which I locked up outside St. Clair W. station. I didn't even realize I'd forgotten to grab them until I came back to my bike tonight - and there they were - only no longer dangling as I'd left them. Someone had wrapped the straps around the bars and fastened the velcro strips so they wouldn't blow away.

My response

... to Harper's grating, gauling "thank you" to Toronto for giving him a majority.

I sincerely apologize to anyone offended by profanity. I do believe that it is sometimes called for.

Targetted assassination

In my opinion, targetted assassination is a disgrace, no matter what country carries it out. It's not right when "they" do it, nor it is right when "we" do it. Was there any attempt to capture OBL? From what I have read, the answer is no. A trial would've been too complicated. Justice is complicated. Murder, I guess, is simpler. But it feeds murder. I'm upset about this.
I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

Charlie and I just got back from The Singing Lady Consignment Emporium. This is big news because it means I have handed over my excrutiatingly chosen-to-part-with china.

Tammie, who is the Singing Lady herself, is a dear old friend I've recently reconnected with (on fb dontchaknow), and she's going to actually put photos of my stuff on her website. To sell!

omigod... breathe...

Plus the stuff will be out in her delightful store where someone at some point, I hope, will happen upon one of the formerly-mine treasures and feel a thrill of delight at discovering the very thing that will make their heart sing.

Speaking of which, heh-heh. I found a beautiful mother's day gift there for my mom. So far, she doesn't know about this blog, so I'll just say it is a beautiful Wedgewood brooch, that has a little loop on the back to convert it into a pendant. So, yeah, I bought something, so what!
