This or That Tuesday

1. Poetry or prose? Prose

2. Funky modern art or the older, "classic" variety? Classic - I like Van Gough and klimt

3. Sculptures or paintings? Paintings

4. Theatre: exuberant musical or serious drama? Drama, I am not a big musical fan.

5. Ballet or modern dance? Not a big fan of either.... I would choose Ballet if you made me choose.

6. Movies: major studio or indie? I find independants touch the soul more that the high selling box office hits.

7. Authors: Shakespeare or Dr. Seuss? I am in the Dr. Seuss phase of life now - with the wee one running around.

8. TV: PBS or A&E? A&E ... PBS has been having too many pledge drives lately... not so entertaining. My husband and I are looking forward to the Napoleon starring:Christian Clavier, Isabella Rossellini, Gerard Depardieu, and John Malkovich.

9. Music: Beethoven or Beatles? Love them both.

10. Thought-provoking question of the week: You are a contributing member of your favorite art museum, and visit on a regular basis. They announce a new, temporary special exhibit by an artist surrounded by controversy...this person's work and/or political views offend you. Do you stop supporting the museum, or just stay away during the time the exhibit is there? Just stay away while the exhibit is there. Art should not be censored. I suppose it is up to the viewer to say what art is to himself. Another set of eyes may disagree - like do you remember that tampon exhibit from a few years back - that is something that I would avoid!!!

Road Trip to Liberation

I am counting down the days (18) until we go on our road trip. I *need* to get out of the city. I *need* a break from this routine; mix it up and breath fresh spring air into my life. It has been crazy:

  • Get engaged: Huge Thrill

  • Plan a wedding: Making me go grey - stress

  • Find out we are pregnant: Two days after our wedding. Hmmmm I wasn't throwing up the morning of our wedding from the gitters - it was *morning sickness*

  • Come home from honeymoon early: rainy season - find out that the house we are renting has black mold

  • Car breaks down: Living in a remote area - what a drag to get around - grocery shopping + trying to find a new place to rent = hell

  • Pregnancy: Not a breeze to say the least.

  • Dad went crazy: huge stress - pulling the strings of the family.

  • Found a new place to live: Moved at 8 months of pregnancy - give a huge round of applause to my husband who carried it off.

  • When is this baby coming out!!!!! - eleven days overdue - each day is super slow motion but full of anticipation.

  • Contractions: Yay!!!! Go to the hospital and I am all of 1cm dialated - I am surprised they didn't send me home. 23hrs later baby girl Sasha comes into our lives.

  • Dad visits hospital - Mom sells me out - everyone knows and doesn't tell me/ help me - family falls apart - *this is supposed to be a happy time* - that is enough for me I don't want to see any of you again.

  • baby = no sleep for 3 - 4 months

  • baby routine taking place - still not sleeping through the night. I have not slept through the night for over 8 months now. *Sleep - I cherish you*

    Well that gives you the general idea. I just need a little break. I know my husband does too - he was along for the ride. We are going to pick up a car from my father-in-law. So we are calling the trip the "Road Trip to Liberation". It is going to be so much easier to get groceries with a car - imagine that. We have so many great places to go for walks that are really close to drive to but if you were to walk there you would be way too walked out to walk any further.

    You're a Diamond. You seem like a cold and an
    unreachable person outside, yet you are
    beautiful inside and outside. You may be
    stubborn at times. You act with grace and
    elegance and you are a precious asset to all
    your friends.

    In a World Gone Mad – Beastie Boys. Download the song at BeastieBoys.com

    ...As your mid-life crisis war unfolds
    All you want to do is take control

    ...First the ‘War On Terror’ now war on Iraq
    We’re reaching a point where we can’t turn back

    ...Let’s lose the guns and let’s lose the bombs
    And stop the corporate contributions that they're built upon

    ...They’re layin’ on the syrup thick
    We ain’t waffles we ain’t havin’ it

    ...Now how many people must get killed?
    For oil families pockets to get filled?
    How many oil families get killed?
    Not a damn one so what’s the deal?

    ...Well I’m not pro Bush and I’m not pro Saddam
    We need these fools to remain calm
    George Bush you’re looking like Zoolander
    Trying to play tough for the camera

    ...Get your hand out my grandma’s pocket
    We need health care more than going to war
    You think it’s democracy they’re fighting for?

    ...In a world gone mad it’s hard to think right
    So much violence hate and spite
    Murder going on all day and night
    Due time we fight the non-violent fight

    I have copied some of the lyrics that appeal to me. I particularly enjoy the one about Bush looking like Zoolander. I applaud the efforts of Beastie Boys – they rock.

    About ready for spring.

    This or That Tuesday

    1. Cold frosty ski slopes or warm sandy beach? Right now I *need* a nice warm sandy beach... lay back and forget your worries.

    2. Chevy or Ford? Ford.

    3. Mac or PC? I want a Mac and have a PC

    4. Dial-up or high speed internet access? .... not a difficult one... high speed... of coarse :)

    5. Small *family-only* wedding or large 200+ guest wedding? We had a pretty intimate wedding of around 65 guests in a heritage schoolhouse on the river.

    6. Would you rather be the bridesmaid or the bride? (if you are a guy, substitute best man or groom)... I hope to be neither again!!!

    7. AC/DC or ABBA? Depends on the mood I like them both.

    8. Roses or daisies? Daisies smell like pooh.

    9. Trashy romance novels or classic literature? Classic literature... I can't get through those trashy romance novels.

    10. NEW! Thought-provoking question of the week...If you had to choose one...would you rather be blind or deaf? Why? Deaf.

    What is Your Signature Flower?

    A Wildflower

    You are living each day to its absolute fullest, and it shows. Spontaneity, laughter and a hint of mischief surround everything that you do and as a result people are drawn to you. You love colour, adventure and freedom and so, logically, wildflowers suit you best. You should have a garden filled with beautiful wild blooms like playful daisies, unique black eyed Susans and beautiful bluebells. A bouquet of hand-picked primroses is certainly the way to win your wild heart.

    1. Do you like talking on the phone? Why or why not?

    Nope... I am not a phone person. People call and it just seem inconvenient.

    2. Who is the last person you talked to on the phone?

    Some lady who wanted to sell me a newspaper subscription.

    3. About how many telephones do you have at home?


    4. Have you encountered anyone who has really bad phone manners? What happened?

    Someone who wanted to sell me something and then asked me twenty questions about why I wasn't interested... it was very difficult to hang up.

    5. Would you rather pick up the phone and call someone or write them an e-mail or a letter? Why or why not?

    I would rather write an email - it seems you get a reply quicker than snail mail.

  • 150 ml / 2/3 cup buttermilk (can substitute 150ml / 2/3 cup milk with 10 ml / 2 tsp lemon juice)

    Preheat oven to 190 C / 375 F

    Combine dry ingredients in one bowl and make a well. Combine wet ingredients in a seperate bowl and poor into dry ingredients. Stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon into prepared muffin tins. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes. Yeild 12 muffins.

    To prepare muffin tins spray just a little bit of vegetable spray only onto the bottom of the muffin tins NOT THE SIDES... then the muffins will climb the sides better and you will have taller fluffier muffins. Enjoy!
