friday bridgemix: Obama, Mo and the flea market

the annual valentine's ball is this saturday night. its black tie optional. in the past i have purchased a cheap dress and doctored it up to be an art piece. last year i found a green dress and painted a human heart on the bodice with blood running down to the floor, accented with red sequins. (Frida, feed me!) on the back i painted a spine and kidneys. i think i'm going to try to sell that dress and the fall "princess party" dress i made of leaves on Ebay. i need money to offset the coming shakedown (more on that below)

this year, i think i am going to stretch some red netting over the fine vintage hat i found and am modeling in the photo above, pair it with my charcoal gray tux with swallow tails and a red silk blouse (if i can find one, or maybe just a red bra i can glue gun a bunch of sparkly crap to.) im not in a dress mood. any suggestions?

i did place all the"psychofauna" (hat tip to the PhoKid for giving these creaturas a better name) around town. i have not checked back on them to see if they were acquired. i left about half of them at the dog park, and the others in various places i happened to have been. one of the designers i work with found one embedded in the chain link around their parking lot..she knew it was mine, and she's keeping it. my friend the artist in blue ridge sent me some alpaca fur and i bought an entire pheasant pelt on ebay to trick them out. i am working on another batch to sell on etsy; and one very special one for my blog reader contest....i think maybe a psychofauna haiku writing contest? doan know. (there's yore daily dose of aunty speak chillen)

do you like the store "anthropologie"? yeah, so do i. hate the prices though. what is its appeal? slightly vintagey and offbeat/beatnikesque style? i go there and identify the things i like and then i go to the flea market or junk shoppe and look for the same kind of thing i liked...at a far better price. i found this daisy choker and i love it. it covers the two bride of frankenstein gashes on my neck and it looks great with my favorite slightly militaristic olive green straight jacket with blood red satin inside it. i call that juxtaposin'. grrrrrrherhahahahaha

i also found these candle sconces that i plan to use horizontally tip to tip as a decorative accent in my bedroom. i just blew up some of my bird photos really large and am framing them for the bedroom make over. i have my own room. we call that the "virgin room". all the action happens in mr. she's room which is a true boys room. where snoring and clothes on the floor are no longer an issue in our 15 year marriage which we celebrated LAST NIGHT! what did i give mr. she? i finally filled out a legal zoom last will and testament. he's been doggin' me for about a year on this one. i hope he wont be mad when he finds out i left it all to my great nieces! grrrrherhahaha (just kiddin' honey...that's only if we die at the same time)

anniversary dinner: grilled gulf shrimp (USA only!) on a white balsamic green salad with shaved parmasean and pears and devil's food cupcakes with pink cherry frosting. mr she had a lot of tattinger and fell asleep before i could love up on him. grrrrherhahaha. thats married life!

of all the funny political posters i've seen i like this one the best. but now, im sort of worried Obama will get the nomination. obama for change! obama for the future! vote for obama cause he's for change! and the future! yes we can! yes we can! yes we can what?

yes. what has obama actually done besides be a fresh empty suit that people can project their desires upon? a symbol by which people can demonstrate they aren't racists? who is barak hussien obama?

it turns out Obama actually has done something! introduced senate bill 2433. a.k.a. "obama's global tax bill", but Obama calls it the Global Poverty Act. sounds like a good compassionate thing to do! what's your problem, dog! my PROBLEM is it makes U.S. foreign aid spending subservient to the dictates of the United Nations! my problem is the legislation would commit the U.S. to spending 0.7 percent of gross national product on foreign aid, which amounts to a phenomenal 13-year total of $845 billion over and above what the U.S. already spends.

im sure many of you saw this viral photo from the Obama campaign down in Texas right? just in case you missed it:

Obama's not responsible for what his campaign workers do! maybe not. but it says much about the ideology of the people who want him to LEAD us;lead us into socialism. the National Journal ranked Obama as the MOST liberal senator of 2007. Hillary Clinton came in at 16. wow.

there's more, but im saving it for the giant treasury of Obama tidbits post to come.

you may or may not be aware that in Denmark there is an enormous amount of stress and violence between the danish people and their immigrant islamic brethren. the recent flare up is a result of the arrest of 3 who plotted to MURDER the guy who drew the mohammed with a bomb in his turban:

cartoonist tom toles had one of my favorite responses to this situation of insanity where free expression is losing out to murderously intolerant and pathetically insecure islamists (hat tip to blogger "wuff")

Islamic leaders which the poor duped-into-diversity-danish elected, (as a show of tolerance), have remarked that the danes are now the "minority" in denmark and that it will be an islamic nation. on top of that, they demanded an apology to all muslim people in denmark for the cartoons. i found a copy of that apology here it is:

Den Officielle Undskyldning!
Fra Danmark til hele den Muslimske verden,kaldet "Undskyld!"

Undskyld vi gav dig læ da krig drev dig fra dit hjemland....
Undskyld vi tog dig ind da andre afviste dig....
Undskyld vi gav dig mulighed for at få en god uddandelse.....
Undskyld vi gav dig mad og drikke samt et hjem da du intet havde....
Undskyld vi lod dig og din familie gen-forenes da jeres hjemland ikke længre var sikkert...
Undskyld vi aldrig tvang dig til at arbejde imens VI betalte alle dine regninger...
Undskyld vi gav dig næsten GRATIS Husleje,telefon,internet,bil og skole til dine 10 børn...
Undskyld vi byggede Moskeer så du kunne praktisere din religion i vores kristne land...
Undskyld vi aldrig tvang dig til at lære vort sprog selv efter 30 års ophold!....

Så kort og godt....fra alle Danskere til hele den Muslimske verden,vil vi bare sige;

how about a translation?

The Official Apology
From Denmark to the Muslim World,simply called "We´re Sorry!

We´re sorry we gave you shelter when war drove you from your home country....
We´re sorry we took you in when others rejected you.....
We´re sorry we gave you the opportunity to get a good education.....
We´re sorry we gave you food and a home when you had non.....
We´re sorry we let you re-unite with your family when your homeland was no longer safe...
We´re sorry we never forced you to work while WE paid all your bills.....
We´re sorry we gave you almost FREE rent,phone,internet,car and school for your 10 kids...
We´re sorry we build you Mosques so you could worship your religion in our Christian land...
We´re sorry we never forced you to learn our language after staying 30 years!....

And so....from all Danes to the entire Muslim world,we just wanna say;


grrrrrrrrrherhahahahaha. have a great weekend. and buy Danish whenever you can. support the Danes whenever you can. they are our canaries if ya know what i mean.

1) Maybe your best Stream-of-Consciousness Posts ever. Loved it.

2) Great-Minds-Think-Alike. I addressed those Danes today too.

3) Love the Hat!

4) I attended a fancy party once.

5) 10 bucks says the Hildebeest gets the nomination by nefarious means.

6) An additional 20 says she will get 95% of the negro vote even if she picks the Head of the KKK as Veep.

Wow, there's a whole lotta She in this post; fashion/art/politics/marriage.

Can I say that I love the dress you've fashioned? That recycling clothes is my favorite thing in the world and PLEASE post your Etsy/Ebay listings for us.

Oh and happy 15th!

Oh if only I lived in Atlanta I'd design something. I've become so obsessed with fashion week and project runway. Oh my word. I love your hat! I'm very "old fashioned/audry hepburn" like and so I'd soo try to do a Jackie O type outfit. I have to say, being girly sometimes is oh so much fun. Soon soon :D Oh and I forgot...did I send you a grad invite :D

I love this post, my dear. I love the Hillary poster - that is too funny! Ah, there is an Anthropoligie close to my apartment and I cant go in anymore because I sadly end up falling in love with a shirt that costs as much as my car payment per month! Ya, Barack isnt responsible for office decor, so I hope people just calm down given the image is one of such pop culture these days anyway.

I love that hat...

Whew. Okay, first things first:

1. Not only do I love that hat, I COVET that hat. Can you perhaps go back into your will and make one teensy weensy change? "Dear Moi: if'n I die, the hat is yours." (While you're at it, throw in that daisy chocker, too, 'kay?)

2. The Pirate and I have had long chats about just what, exactly, is wrong with Anthropologie: the quality of the merchandise rarely justifies the uber expensive prices. Recycle an outfit instead by patronizing your local second hand clothing shop.

3. Happy 15th Anniversary!

4. We won't even GO there with the democratic nobninations. Uh, uh. No way. (Anarchy Now.)

5. Ah. So the Danes got balls. Which means I don't have to boycott Havarti or herring. I was scared for a moment there this morning on the Troll's site.

I love you, I love you, I love you-
I'd explain more, but there's really not the need.
All will be revealed in due time~
The last "fancy party" I attended was a tea party I threw for my sister, and good friend- and their little ones. The little ones were 2, 2 and 6...
we were much older- and just thankful to be in the same room togther at the same time- and no food was flying :)
hugs and love She-
I will call you next week! xoxox :)

troll: God i don't know whether to hope you are right (on 5 and 6) or jump off a cliff! as to your dane post it looks like some readers missed the joke!! uh oh. you like the hat? that's good to know...mr she hasnt seen it yet.

anonymous boxer: good to see ya out. i might have to wear the frida dress again. i just ruined the new one... or i cant fix it in time. its killin my neck, craning around to look at it, climbing in and out of it. i need a dress form! and, the hostess said i wore it (frida dress) 2 years ago so.....which now means the hat isnt right!! bummer!!

edi: i wish you were here so bad. you are girly and would be the IDEAL person to have around for this party. if you had the dress on, my job would be easier. or you could design it with me in it. but i can do it with it laying flat. i needed help and now its too late. i know you are graduating!!! what do you want for a gift? give it some thought. im so proud of you!!

thursday next: thank you lady jane. i know you love obama, thanks for seeing what i wrote the right way and for remaining cheerful and light.
anthropologie! did you see the 200 dollar charley harper book? it was on amazon for 125. natch.

moi: its done...i have unlimited changes i can make to that will with the death package i bought. grrherhahaha. the hat is yours...one of my friends may fight ya for the choker - its been an hit. i agree with yours and the pirates assessment of anthropologie. your #4 grrrrrrherhahahahaha. i look forward to your anarchy post.

mayden: grrrherhaahaha. im pleased you like it and i love you too!!!!! mega love you. that tea party you gave sounds great. its good to dress now and then even if its just the girls. especially if its just the girls.

I am a little, no, make that utterly exhausted.
How you jump from St. Valentines to recent art projects, shopping, Obama , how the muslimske and the Danes interact and finish up with a great big fuck you at the end of it all, like a cherry sittin ontop of a sundae is completely beyond me.

I loved every minute of it.

Look, the only positive about being absent from your rolecall is being hable to languish and catch-up, upon return.

Hey, when you get on ebay, let me know, I wanna see your wares!

This is a well done post as usual.
Having a virgin room seems like the only possible way to maintain a 15 year marriage.

I made a somewhat cryptic bird themed post today, it is nothing special at all.

We have seen the chances of getting pregnant on your period, so it makes more sense to take complete advantage of the ovulation period.
If you approach this from the viewpoint that the man may have a low sperm count, you may miss the fact that the woman may be low in folic acid.
