I'm still here...for now

My blogging issue continues although I am making slow and steady progress!

I obtained my domain name and obtained hosting. I've redirected my domain to my new hosting server and attempted to download the wordpress software. I'm working on it, really I am but sometimes reading all of this stuff just gives me a headache and I lay in bed thinking about FTP and DNS and all sorts of other acronyms.

Really I just need someone to do it for me????? (hint, hint, nudge, nudge, anyone who knows how to do this stuff better than I???)

Until then, I suppose I will just hang here for a little while and ride out my web issues the best I can.

All is well in this corner in the world, the weather has been unusually humid and not so pleasant. HG and I have been painting like you would not believe. Here is our living room before...
Here it is now...
It's in a bit of disaray (because we're painting,) but you get the general idea. The color over the fireplace looks very pink in the picture but it's not IRL. The name of it is Toasted Nutmeg. The darker is Wine Barrel, and the other is Wilmington Tan, although on the wall it looks quite gold. I was really trying to pick NEW colors from my old house,
Vaults and upper windows
but alas, I guess I'm set in my ways (and taste,) becuase it turned out looking quite similar. I like it, HG likes it, the girls like it, so that's just fine.

In other news...(warning, RSG is jumping up on a political soapbox, read at your own risk...)

I guess we have nothing else important going on in our country that our elected officials should be looking in to, so they are discussing amending the constitution to discriminate against more than 10 percent of the population.


I suppose that is more important than other things like a war that has killed 2500 US soldiers and thousands and thousands and thousands of civilians. Or the fact that we are in an energy crisis in this country and I am paying over $3.00 a gallon for gas. Or the fact that we have a major immigration issue/conflict that is causing civil distress.

Even this story seems more important!

Why aren't they looking into THAT? Geez, our last president was impeached for such actions, but no one seems to care about W's philandoring? Instead our trusted government officials are debating whether or not if I get married to HG if that would somehow upset the "sanctity" of marriage? What about the "sanctity" of W's marriage? Where are his "family values?"

To be honest, whether or not W is having an affair with anyone, I could really care less. What I do care about is time, money, and energy being taken away from very important issues to try to stop me and a lot of other people from having the same rights as anyone else; it's sickening.

Then I saw this bitch on the Today show this morning and just about puked.
You can read an article about the appearance here.
Or go to Today's website and see the video. I'm telling you people, Jesus does NOT heart that woman. Also, she released her new book today; you know, today, The Devil's Day. I personally don't believe in "The Devil," but now I'm starting to wonder if there IS a devil and she is actually Ann Coulter?

Okay. Enough political soapboxing for one day.
I've got important things to attend to, HG and I are off to Costco.

Ciao y'all. I hope you didn't all forget me?

FIRST! Ah ha!

Coulter is a C-word. I reserve that word for rare occassions and only when it is SERIOUSLY warranted. She warrants its use.

I like your new pink living room. ;) Wink wants to know when she can come over and pee on your new rug again. "Hi, I'm Wink, I'm here to pee!" That's my girl!

Smooches to Snap....

I officially nominate RSG (and HG) for a role on that Trading Places show. Man, that is some sweet decorating!

Glad to have you back. If I was well-Web versed I'd offer to help you with Web issues. But I'm a dunce in that area.

Bush and Condi!!!!!?????!!!!

Gorgeous paint!!! When I finally get a house you gotta pick my colors!

I can't believe this stuff with Bush and the marriage amendment. I just keep repeating '2 more years, 2 more years...'

Nice colors!! I love color on the walls. I'm a novice at html and a moron when it comes to anything more than the most simple javascript coding.

As for dubya, it's only because his approval rating is so low and the horrible crap going on because of the war he is mongering that he is trying to draw people's attention away from the fact that he needs fired!

Those colors are positively gorgeous. We have similar color tastes;> I cannot see how anyone could really prefer white walls to the warmth and ambiance that color brings.

I agree with that particular debate being a waste of time. It's not going to pass, and it shouldn't pass because it is no one's business who other people marry, so it seems like a very pointless task to have on their list of issues.

I love the painting. What a wonderful combo of colors. I so do not have an eye for that stuff, but I can for sure appreciate it in others.

As for the Bush against gay marriage crap, he makes me puke. Enough said.

I had thought you passed away to the land of lassie love and lust. More than rain soaked wetness in that neck of the woods your in.

It was nice to see you reappear. I saw your comment on Dash's blog. I'd thought you, your gf and the children had run of to live on the black sand beaches of Nicarauga to live in straw huts and run naked as waves whispered and crashed againt the shore.

I didn't really think that but it could have happenned.

I'm glad your settled in. I can't do the politics..turns my stomach. I have not voted in years. I haven't cared in even more.

Tell Ginger I love her and I'll be coming for her when she sickens of the leash and the ex-burbs and wants to run free as a jaybird in the rock walled field of New Enland.
