Horoscopes and sails at sunset

Pat's buying a truck, today, so we'll be able to haul Monique's Misery out to the river. I got to do some sun bathing beside Mudhen Lake in Wisconsin on Sat, that really put me in the mood for summer. We've just come back to normal temps after enjoying 9 days of freakishly warm spring weather, 70 or above each day. Feels like global warming to me.


From this week's Freewill Astrology, by Rob Brezsny:

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): As you enter the Season of Unleashed Desire, here are a few guidelines to help you navigate your way through the interesting complexities ahead. (1) Consider the possibility that you have a lot to learn about what you really want. (2) Find out whether your chronic anger is obstructing the full bloom of a potentially beautiful desire. (3) Be careful about desiring experiences you don't understand.
(4) Meditate on the likelihood that some of your desires are superior to others, and that maybe you should cultivate those superior desires with more determination than you do the mediocre ones.



I am feverishly working on my final project for my journalism class. It's pretty much all I can think of, especially when I wake up from night sweats at 3 a.m. This little post is my brief respite from my assignment: a pitch for an interpretive story on off-reservation casinos. I have a slightly obsessive character, so I'll probably even be going over various details of the assignment in my head for days after I hand it in. On the other hand, I am easily distracted, so, while I finished the above hours ago, I walked away and completely forgot to post it! How do I reconcile these opposing character traits? I don't have an answer to that right now . . .
