How cute! A broom pentagram!!!

Posted by Hello


go to ::::when the light fades:::: for some old fashioned Christmas spirit... heheheh.... i keep sighing and i can't stop. i'm expecting my co-workers to come over and smother me with a typewriter! honestly!!! ::sigh:: i keep doing it!!! why am i so unsatisfied? is my body trying to work out some frustrations that i cannot help?

Little bloop

This is definitely an "Everyone, will you please just keep quiet & don't bother me, or maybe, could you just go away? better yet? why don't I?" I have one co-worker, let's call her Sheila. Sheila likes to spend the majority of her day away from her desk, talking. And it wouldn't be that bad if she didn't sound like the teacher from Peanuts. (wah wah wah wah). Sounds like a mouth full of marbles. It got to a point (twenty years later, I am not kidding) that now everyone wears headphones (everyone that is who needs to concentrate when they have work) to block her out. What is sad is that she doesn't talk with people, but to them. You can give her advice until you are blue in the face, and she won't listen. Another co-worker, Sheila, said that Sheila is the exact same person that she knew twenty years ago. She has not grown emotionally. At all!!! It is sad and scary. I think a lot of people have tried to tell her over the years that she might need professional help, but she just ignores them, like everything else we tell her. I have gotten into a pattern of just ignoring her. If Sheila comes over to my desk, I continue to work/stare at computer screen, headphones still on, until she leaves a minute later when she realizes I have no wish to "participate" in her conversation. It got to such a point that I even went to the boss the other week. It felt weird, like 6 years olds fighting on the playground weird. I know, it sounds horrible of me. But, if you are not here, experience what I dread to experience every day at work, then you cannot tell me that what I am feeling is wrong. Good news: my little heater under my desk is starting to work. Oddness: There is a weird ringing. We think that it is the fax machine ringing. It's quite loud. Never heard anything like that before from it. Wow, you're still here! And here i'm supposed to get into the Christmas Spirit with tomorrow being the first day of Christmas. And 25 shopping days left!!! I will not get sick. I will not get sick. Says the girl who sneezes. Today will get better. Just have to make it better. Will get home in a few hours, put on comfy clothes, spend quality time with G. Yay!

Knitting Apprentice You appear to be a Knitting Apprentice.You've got the basics down pat and you might just be falling in love with this hobby. Big needles, funky yarns and simple shapes are the name of the game, but it doesn't mean you don't experiment a bit, here and there. As an apprentice, you probably fall back on other people to get you through those rough spots, and if you don't know anyone who knits, you probably have a few books or online sources to tap.http://marniemaclean.com/ What Kind of Knitter Are You? brought to you by

old time candy nostalgic candy

old time candy nostalgic candy Have been sighing uncontrollably for the last two days. Little frustrations at work (too much work/too little work), and big frustrations at work (still no heat, even after they worked on it for a few months last year when we didn't have heat), little frustrations at home (sound card not hooked up on computer), and big frustrations at home (the heat isn't working there either, but it did last Christmas). *really* want to see Alexander to see it with me tonight so as to alleviate frustrations. I have always had a thing about Alexander the Great. Every time we studied him at school I could never get enough, it was always like one long action packed movie, and now there is one! I want gooey chocolate cake. Above is a link to nostalgic candy. found it off of her site.

The geekiest calendar I have seen. BTW, a friend got some d20 earrings about 10 years ago, I'm planning on making a complete set.

12 sided calendar

12 sided calendar my inner geek sighed.

Dissident Voice

Dissident Voice The first article, "The Passion of the Right." I freaked out when I read the quote from Bob Jones III (in a letter to President Bush). In your re-election, God has graciously granted America -- though she doesn’t deserve it -- a reprieve from the agenda of paganism. Otherwise, I will leave you to draw your own opinions. I'm not sure how true this article is, need to check resources, this is just freaky.

Blog News & Christmas Spirit

Check it out! Whole new section "Famous Blogs". Ooh! Ah! The light is so bright, it hurts my eyes. I had no idea that there is an entire news site dedicated to bloggers, called the Blog Herald. There was even a contest in there for the best Christmas spirit blog. Or some such. Go and check it out! That's right, no links in this post, why? Because I want you to use the new section! So go find it!!! Gods, there is even a weblog awards.... It's at the bottom of the first page of the Herald. Please, I urge thee to check it out. Stay tuned for posts re: the true origins of Christmas.

More to Come....

Hope that everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. To celebrate, I added two new sites ------> The first is Margaret Cho's weblog. And the second is her "Marriage Equality Resourse Site" Love Is Love Is Love. Please go check them out! I am on the search for new and exciting links, visuals (did you see the moon calendar? did 'ya? did 'ya? thanks to VJ), as well as commentary. Stay tuned!

KR Washington Bureau | 11/20/2004 | Spending bill contains controversial abortion provision

KR Washington Bureau 11/20/2004 Spending bill contains controversial abortion provision Um.... Mmm.... Bad. Getting bad. from the article? Departing from some of the more freewheeling spending of recent years, lawmakers adhered to budgetary constraints by whittling spending for federal agencies, but still managed to include money for favorite local projects. The bill came just days after Congress increased that nation's $7.4 trillion debt limit by $800 billion. Republicans praised the package as a model of fiscal restraint, noting that some federal agencies had their spending cut.

ABC News: AP: Budget Has Room for Special Projects

ABC News: AP: Budget Has Room for Special Projects Promises broken proved true. They spent how much and for what?

Tea & Stereotypes

I had my very first cup of white tea yesterday. And it was excellent. I believe that I proved to myself this morning that I am indeed an official tea drinker now. With enough honey and sweet 'n low (ran out of splenda), I can gulp down an entire cup of tea! I fear that I still do not make it hot enough, however. According to Living In Egypt's blog, the key to tea is the temperature. (She said that awhile ago, so it's not in today's commentary, but she is still an excellent writer and I thought you might enjoy seeing her site.) Go over to Megatokyo today. Read the comment, as well as Piro's commentary below. I think he made some excellent points about both American and Japanese stereotypes. There's been a lot of cultural exchange between these two countries in the last twenty years, sometimes I feel most of America knows more about them than we do of Canada or Mexico. That worries me. I have been trying to learn more about Japan and Canada, the good and the bad. Since I have been reading a lot of blogs lately, I have been trying to find a few from each country (preferably in English). So, if you have any to recommend, please do! Also, each link is different. Enjoy!

A Declaration!

Hear ye! Hear ye! I now declare Fayetteville, Arkansas a duchy!! If a prophet can declare Omaha a kingdom, then surely an ex-catholic-pagan-light girl can declare the small mountain town of Fayetteville a duchy. New rules: Ice cream will be served year round, as well as all other seasonal-flavored food. Chicago Pizza will be served properly. Everyone will stop for low tea. Halloween will be a duchal holiday (day off!), although it will be celebrated on the official date. Why not make it the entire week? Everyone would have an interesting title. (Mayor=Duke/Duchess, still elected) Not just secretary or bus driver or instructor. They need more creative titles. Sure, we'd keep those titles for accounting purposes, but everyone should be able to choose a better, more empowering title. "Buy Local" would be a theme. Wal-marts still would not be boycotted. But all of the buildings in the town would be asked nicely to be painted a prettier color. Festive decorations would be put up all year long. All religions would be encouraged to get along, even with those choosing unorganized religious paths, especially those that are not religious at all. Everyone will be strongly encouraged to carpool to the game, or else it could result in a 10 yard penalty per car for your side. There would be a Krispy Kreme every mile, and a mega-Krispy Kreme store on both ends of town. We will have our stadium seating theatre, that will also show independent films, as well as student films. Cars would be required to run on extremely low emissions, hence promoting the electric car. My office would be decorated in a Happy Bunny motif. There will be more duchal gardens, as well as a duchal flower. Protests will still be peaceful. Suggestions for new rules would be given by students. Student Councils will have more weight with their schools. More internships will be available for students, and in every field. Students will be encouraged to take at least one internship before they graduate and make a life decision. (part-times, full-times, and any-times will be available.) More degrees will be offered too. There will be a moon festival at least twice a year. As well as seasonal holidays. Please add your new rule in the Comments section.

There is a spot on the back of my neck that begins to hurt whenever I start to acquire too many negative emotions at once. Like, if I want to be left alone b/c everyone around me just seems especially annoying, i'm pms-ing, really hungry, really sleepy, being treated poorly by people and think of mean things to say back to them. Stuff like that. Suddenly, the back of my neck will start to hurt. Sure, I could massage it into submission, but if I just calm down and let all of the badness go, so does the pain. Odd huh? Body breaks down because of stress very, very easily.

How the Grinch Stole Marriage

frogblog How the Grinch Stole Marriage by Mary Ann Horton, Lisa and Bill Koontz (with apologies to Dr. Seuss.) Every Gay down in Gayville liked Gay Marriage a lot... But the Grinch, who lived just east of Gayville, did NOT!! The Grinch hated happy Gays! The whole Marriage season! Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason. It could be his head wasn't screwed on just right. It could be, perhaps, his Florsheims were too tight. But I think the most likely reason of all was His heart and brain were two sizes too small. "And they're buying their tuxes!" he snarled with a sneer, "Tomorrow's the first Gay Wedding! It's practically here!" Then he growled, with his Grinch fingers nervously drumming, "I MUST find some way to stop Gay Marriage from coming!" For, tomorrow, he knew... All the Gay girls and boys would wake bright and early. They'd rush for their vows! And then! Oh, the Joys! Oh, the Joys! And THEN they'd do something he liked least of all! Every Gay down in Gayville the tall and the small, would stand close together, all happy and blissing. They'd stand hand-in-hand. And the Gays would start kissing! "I MUST stop Gay Marriage from coming! ...But HOW?" Then he got an idea! An awful idea! THE GRINCH GOT A WONDERFUL, AWFUL IDEA! "I know what to do!" The Grinch laughed in his throat. And he went to his closet, grabbed his sheet and his hood. And he chuckled, and clucked, with a great Grinchy word! "With this beard and this cross, I look just like our Lord!" "All I need is a Scripture..." The Grinch looked around. But, true Scripture is scarce, there was none to be found. Did that stop the old Grinch...? No! The Grinch simply said, "With no Scripture on Marriage, I'll fake one instead!" "It's one man and one woman," the Grinch falsely said. Then he broke in the courthouse. A rather tight pinch. But, if Georgie could do it, then so could the Grinch. The little Gay benefits hung in a row. "These bennies," he grinned, "are the first things to go!" Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most uncanny, around the whole room, and he took every benny! Health care for partners! Doctors for kiddies! Tax rights! Adoptions! Pensions and Wills! And he stuffed them in bags. Then the Grinch, with a chill, Stuffed all the bags, one by one, in his bill. Then he slunk to the kitchen, and stole Wedding Cake. He cleaned out that icebox and made it look straight. He took the Gay-bar keys! He took the Gay Flag. Why, that Grinch even took their last Gay birdseed bag! "And NOW!" grinned the Grinch, "I will pocket their Rings." And the Grinch grabbed the Rings, and he started to shove when he heard a small sound like the coo of a dove. He turned around fast, and off flew his hood. Little Lisa-Bi Gay behind him sadly stood. The Grinch had been caught by small Lisa-Bi. She stared at the Grinch and said, "My, oh, my, why?" "Why are you taking our Wedding Rings? WHY?" But, you know, that old Grinch was so smart and so slick He thought up a lie, and he thought it up quick! "Why, my sweet little tot," the fake Shepherd sneered, "The judges are evil, the other states weird." "I'll fix the rings there and I'll bring them back here." It was quarter past dawn... All the Gays, still a-bed, all the Gays still a-snooze when he packed up and fled. "Pooh-Pooh to the Gays!" he was grinch-ish-ly humming. "They're finding out now no Gay Marriage is coming!" "Their mouths will hang open a minute or two then the Gays down in Gayville will all cry Boo-Hoo!" He stared down at Gayville! The Grinch popped his eyes! Then he shook! What he saw was a shocking surprise! Every Gay down in Gayville, the tall and the small, was kissing! Without any bennies at all! He HADN'T stopped Marriage from coming! IT CAME! Somehow or other, it came just the same! And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling: "How could it be so?" "It came without lawyers, no papers to sort!" "It came without licenses, came without courts!" And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! "Maybe Marriage," he thought, "doesn't come from the court. Maybe Marriage...perhaps... comes right from the heart. Maybe Marriage comes from all the words the Gays say. Words like Husband, like Wedding, and Spouse who is Gay." And what happened then...? Well...in Gayville they say that the Grinch's small brain grew three sizes that day! And the Gays had their Weddings. They promised for life. They swore to be faithful, to Wife and her Wife. The Husbands were happy, to each other they vowed To be Out and be Honest, be Gay and be Proud. They told all their neighbors and friends of their Spouse, They told of their Marriage and sharing their house. They said "We got Married." They shouted it loud. Their marital status was "Married and Proud." And the minute his heart didn't feel quite so tight, He whizzed with his load through the bright morning light. And he brought back the rings, cake and Gay birdseed bags! And he... ...HE HIMSELF... hung the Gay Rainbow Flag! The Lord looked down, at the proud and the tall, and said "These are my children, and I love them all." The moral of this story is that we don't need a piece of paper and the approval of the state to get married. We can just get married. Instead of having a committment ceremony, we can have a wedding. Instead of partners, we can have husbands and wives. Instead of calling our relationship a Domestic Partnership or a Civil Union, we can call it a Marriage. Whether any government recognizes it is separate from what we call it. It's a free country and we can call ourselves what we like. In 5 or 10 or 20 years, with plenty of visible same-sex married couples, the world won't see us as strange or scary, we're just the married couple down the street that happens to be gay. Eventually, the legal recognition of our marriages will follow. If we allow ourselves to voluntarily sit in the back of the bus, we'll never make any progress. Rosa Parks had to sit in the front of the bus to make a difference. We must as well. Copyright (c) 2004 by Mary Ann Horton. Permission granted to copy in whole, with attribution.

The Fifth Element

should go to sleep but can't. i think i'm still coming down from the adreneline rush of realizing that i have the Sims completely loaded on my computer and was able to play some tonight. my husband has currently taken over my adventurer in Anarchy-Online, so as to uber her up some. Already he has done a great job. no surprise there seeing as how he is uber at AO. should read tonight. not stay up watching TV...especially since Teen Titans are not on. I actually looked online for info about the Teen Titans and their comic book origins. cool stuff. Raven is my favorite, although Starfire is growing on me. Did you know that the girl that does the voice for Raven also does the voice for Bubbles from Powerpuff Girls? Oh! Spongebob movie is out this weekend. I actually thought that I would be immune to that show, and then i watched it. Were cartoons this funny when I was a kid? Anyway, will be celebrating our fifth month wedding anniversary soon. ^.^ did i ever mention that i dislike stalkers? felt like saying that here. just a random brain cloud. bit worried that i might get emotional tomorrow as my horoscope predicted. also have LOADS of christmas shopping to do. i thought i would get done. but i didn't. i thought that i would make all of my gifts, but what i would make seemed like it would be unwanted, not well-made, and i would run out of time and have to buy gifts anyway. so...i have a good list started and feel determined that i will finish before the first week of December. cheerio & raisin nut bran!


I learned that onions, cabbage and eggrolls can smell like b.o. Oh the joys of cubicle farming! If I dress like my co-worker (same color shirt and pants) and stand somewhere within her peripheral view, she thinks that I am her. She will jump and wonder why she is standing over there. Horoscope: Quickie:Are you a rebel with a cause? Good! Don't be afraid to do your own thing. Overview:Whatever you've been holding back will absolutely demand to be expressed, starting tonight. Don't suppress yourself any further, but don't say anything you might want to take back, either. I was able to play the Sims last night. I only have to install Makin' Magic. It only took two weeks if you include when my hard drive crashed. Or was it three? Either way, it also messed up my attempt at NaNo. For some reason, no computer=no writing. Tonight I am looking forward to cuddling and watching THE FIFTH ELEMENT. Then Joan of Arcadia, then possibly the Sims. Tomorrow is a Dragon Crest module day. Only three modules, but I am sure to have fun.

TheHometownChannel.com - News - Anti-Gay Group, Students Clash At Fayetteville High School

TheHometownChannel.com - News - Anti-Gay Group, Students Clash At Fayetteville High School Here is another news link to the protest yesterday. You can even watch a news clip of the protest. It shows the principal of the high school, someone made a comment that he looked like an agent from the MATRIX.

English Takeover

found this on Moby's journal. he got it from somewhere unknown. i can't wait for the roundabouts! TO: The Citizens of the United States of America RE: Revocation of your Independence In the light of your failure to elect a proper President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective today. Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths and other territories. Except Utah, which she does not fancy much. Your new prime minister (The Right Honourable Tony Blair, MP for the 97.85% of you who have until now been unaware that there is a world outside your borders) will appoint a minister for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire will be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed. To aid in the transition to a British Crown Dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect: 1. You should look up "revocation" in the Oxford English Dictionary. Then look up "aluminium". Check the pronunciation guide. You will be amazed at just how wrongly you have been pronouncing it. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'favour' and 'neighbour', skipping the letter 'U' is nothing more than laziness on your part. Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters. You will end your love affair with the letter 'Z' (pronounced 'zed' not 'zee') and the suffix "ize" will be replaced by the suffix "ise". You will learn that the suffix 'burgh is pronounced 'burra' e.g. Edinburgh. You are welcome to respell Pittsburgh as 'Pittsberg' if you can't cope with correct pronunciation. Generally, you should raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. Look up "vocabulary". Using the same twenty seven words interspersed with filler noises such as "like" and "you know" is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. Look up "interspersed". There will be no more 'bleeps' in the Jerry Springer show. If you're not old enough to cope with bad language then you shouldn't have chat shows. When you learn to develop your vocabulary then you won't have to use bad language as often. 2. There is no such thing as "US English". We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell -checker will be adjusted to take account of the reinstated letter 'u' and the elimination of "-ize". 3. You should learn to distinguish the English and Australian accents. It really isn't that hard. English accents are not limited to Cockney, upper-class twit or Mancunian (Daphne in Frasier). You will also have to learn how to understand regional accents? Scottish dramas such as "Taggart" will no longer be broadcast with subtitles. While we're talking about regions, you must learn that there is no such place as Devonshire in England. The name of the county is "Devon". If you persist in calling it Devonshire, all American States will become "shires" e.g. Texasshire, Floridashire, Louisianashire. 4. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as the good guys. Hollywood will be required to cast English actors to play English characters. British sit-coms such as "Men Behaving Badly? or "Red Dwarf" will not be re-cast and watered down for a wishy-washy American audience who can't cope with the humour of occasional political incorrectness. 5. You should relearn your original national anthem, "God Save The Queen", but only after fully carrying out task 1. We would not want you to get confused and give up half way through. 6. You should stop playing American "football". There is only one kind of football. What you refer to as American "football" is not a very good game. The 2.15% of you who are aware that there is a world outside your borders may have noticed that no one else plays "American" football. You will no longer be allowed to play it, and should instead play proper football. Initially, it would be best if you played with the girls. It is a difficult game. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which is similar to American "football", but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full Kevlar body armour like nancies). We are hoping to get together at least a US rugby sevens side by 2005. You should stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the 'World Series' for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.15% of you are aware that there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. Instead of baseball, you will be allowed to play a girls' game called "rounders" which is baseball without fancy team strip, oversized gloves, collector cards or hotdogs. 7. You should declare war on Quebec and France, using nuclear weapons if they give you any merde. The 97.85% of you who were not aware that there is a world outside your borders should count yourselves lucky. The Russians have never been the bad guys. "Merde" is French for "Shit". You will no longer be allowed to own or carry guns. You will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous in public than a vegetable peeler. Because we don't believe you are sensible enough to handle potentially dangerous items, you will require a permit if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public. 8. July 4th is no longer a public holiday. November 2nd will be a new national holiday, but only in England. It will be called "Indecisive Day". 9. All American cars are hereby banned. They are crap and it is for your own good. When we show you German cars, you will understand what we mean. All road intersections will be replaced with roundabouts. You will start driving on the left with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables. Roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour. 10. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips. Fries aren't even French; they are Belgian though 97.85% of you (including the guy who discovered fries while in Europe) are not aware of a country called Belgium. Those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called "crisps". Real chips are thick cut and fried in animal fat. The traditional accompaniment to chips is beer which should be served warm and flat. Waitresses will be trained to be more aggressive with customers. 11. As a sign of penance 5 grams of sea salt per cup will be added to all tea made within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, this quantity to be doubled for tea made within the city of Boston itself. 12. The cold tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all, it is lager. From November 1st only proper British Bitter will be referred to as "beer", and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as "Lager". The substances formerly known as "American Beer" will henceforth be referred to as "Near-Frozen Gnat's Piss", with the exception of the product of the American Budweiser company whose product will be referred to as "Weak Near-Frozen Gnat's Piss". This will allow true Budweiser (as manufactured for the last 1000 years in Pilsen, Czech Republic) to be sold without risk of confusion. 13. From December 1st the UK will harmonise petrol (or "Gasoline" as you will be permitted to keep calling it until April 1st 2005) prices with the former USA. The UK will harmonise its prices to those of the former USA and the Former USA will, in return, adopt UK petrol prices (roughly $6/US gallon - get used to it). 14. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you're not adult enough to be independent. Guns should only be handled by adults. If you're not adult enough to sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist then you're not grown up enough to handle a gun. 15. Please tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us crazy. 16. Tax collectors from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all revenues due (backdated to 1776.) Thank you for your cooperation.

I just shot a rubberband into my neck! I stretched it out to put it around an envelope, and it broke and snapped into my neck. I'm one of those people who HATES to have my neck touched. I literally freak out when that happens. Wearing really tight necklaces, or chokers, or even turtlenecks CREEPS ME OUT!!! It takes a lot of self control to stand it. So, all day I will be freaking out because a rubberband was snapped into my neck. Blah!

Protest At Fayetteville High School

NWAnews.com :: Northwest Arkansas' News Source There was a protest at the high school yesterday by the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, KS. They were at the Clinton library opening in Little Rock Thursday morning and then came to Fayetteville that afternoon to protest the Gay/Straight Alliance club. Supposedly this Church group preaches that "God hates fags." I don't like smoking either people, but to say that God hates is wrong. I know that I am mostly gray in my opinions, but this is something that I will stand firm on. I do not believe that God is hateful. People are hateful, and to use God in that manner is sick. I was proud of the high schoolers for protesting against the protestors. But, I am not happy w/ the little buggers who through the bottle or the rock. Violence has no place in protests. That is not the message that needs to be sent. I got pissed when my friend wrote in her blog about how a girl spat at her. Yes, actually spit her wad of gunk into the air at my friend. My friend did not know this girl. It was another high schooler too. It happened in a desserted hallway, and the only reason that this could have been done was b/c my friend was wearing a few of the GHS pink ribbons. It made me furious to think that someone would SPIT at another person. I think that I would rather be slapped than spit on. And the fact that this happened to my friend really hurts me. She is THE SWEETEST GIRL EVER!!! How could people do that?

Wrong Blog

So...I managed to post these to the wrong blog: Cracker Jack Box Homepage there is a prize gallery and horoscope. For anyone that appreciates System of a Down and the video game Zelda, you will appreciate this song. Posted is a link (heh heh, link) to the lyrics. Thinspiration? You have got to be kidding. That is what I thought when I read today's and yesterday's Something Positive. There are now tons of websites out there that are Pro-Ana or Pro-Anorexia. AND THEY ARE NOT JOKING! Here is a link to a New York Observer article discussing these sites. Sadly, while I was on this page an ad for Applebee's restaurant appeared.
