************************************************************ This week April 10 through April 16 Libra Mars has now moved into your career zone, which has been very quiet. If you have lacked motivation in this area, then you should find you have more than ever. Use a newfound zeal to write off for those job interviews and get information. But be careful on Tuesday, which isn't the best of days to approach the boss or to attend an interview. There is a strong likelihood that you will not only disagree with what is being discussed, but that you will also prove to be too radical for their liking. Best wishes for this week, from the astrologers of AstroCenter.com ************************************************************MOI???? Too RADICAL?!?!?!?!
I'm upgrading the template today, so be prepared for some goofiness for awhile. These "widget" things have my head spinning
"Blame someone else and get on with your life." -- Alan Woods/snort. I think for awhile-- in fact, for waaaay too long-- this may have been my theme song. I'm trying to just stick with the second part nowadays.
Boycott to support illegals
May 1, 2006: Call to Action! "El Gran Paro Americano 2006" "The Great American Boycott 2006" "Un dia sin immigrante" "A day without an immigrant" Nationwide Immigrant General Strike Immigrants contribute 7 billion in social security per year. they earn 240 billion, report 90 billion, and only are reimbursed 5 billion, "where are the 85 billion?" They also contribute to the U.S. economy 25 billion more than they receive in healthcare, etc., etc., etc. According to the anti-immigrant politicians and hatemongers, "immigrants are a drain on society." If this is true, then during the day on May 1st the stock market will surge, and the economy will boom. If not, we prove them wrong once and for all. We know what will happen! The points of unity are: No Work, No School, No Sales, and No Buying, and also to have rallies around symbols of economic trade in your areas (stock exchanges, anti-immigrant corporations, etc.). We will settle for nothing less than full amnesty and dignity for the millions of undocumented workers presently in the U.S. We believe that increased enforcement is a step in the wrong direction and will only serve to facilitate more tragedies along the Mexican-U.S. border in terms of deaths and family separation.On May Day. How refreshingly original. And when did ILLEGAL immigration get confused with regular immigration?
From an email:

Spider-hunting nudist ends with ring of fire Ok, now...this is embarassing enough...
SYDNEY (Reuters) - A red-faced Australian nudist who tried to set fire to what he thought was a deadly funnel web spider's nest ended up with badly burned buttocks, emergency officials said Monday. The 56-year-old man was at a nudist colony near Bowral, about 60 miles southwest of Sydney, Sunday when he spotted what he believed to be a funnel web spider hole. Ambulance workers, including a helicopter crew, were called to the scene after the man poured petrol down the hole and then lit a match in an attempt to kill the offending arachnid.I can imagine trying to explain that one. Gasoline for spiders seemed just a tiny bit excessive, though--until I read this:
NRMA Careflight said it was called to a property in the same area in January when another man kicked a spider that was crawling up the wall of a friend's cabin. The man broke his leg in two places, it said.Must have been one BIG spider!
Seems Cynthia McKinney has a problem with wearing her ID. Considering the ID I have to flash to get to work at a factory in the middle of nowhere, it doesn't seem much of an imposition to me to wear a damn pin to get to your work on Capitol Hill. Or to not get offended when a cop does his job asking who you are, and where you're going when you barge past a guardshack with a cameraman in tow. "That's just the typical treatment I receive, so I'm not surprised. And I'm not offended." "Some things never change. That's what Tupac said." Maybe we oughta call a waaaahmbulance.
| Killian's Red |
(100% dark & bitter, 66% working class, 33% genuine)
I'll start with a quote from a review of Killian's Red that I think will reflect on you, too: "deep flavor, somewhat mild, with a moderate head." It goes on to talk about a "light caramel odor," and while that sounds nice, I don't think I can go that far in my analysis.
Overall, Killian's is a very good beer. The only thing that kinda sucks is that even though it says "Irish Red" on the bottle, this stuff's made by Coors, not peaty old Dubliners. I guess that's my way of telling you that you scored on the lower side of the "genuine" part of my test. Here's my guess: you're a sensible, likeable person, and you're popular among different groups of people. The test probably read that as a slight superficiality.
Personality-wise, you have refined tastes (after all, this stuff is kind of expensive), but you know how to savor what you get. Your personality isn't exactly bubbly, but you're well-liked nonetheless. Your sense of humor is rather dark, but that's just another way to say sophisticated, right?
As a real George Killian would say: Sl�inte! Cheers!

On this day in history:
Iran-IR Day Today, Farvardin 12 (April 1), the Islamic Republic of Iran marks another milestone. IRNA congratulates the entire nation on this auspicious day. On April 1, 1979 Iran became an Islamic Republic through a plebiscite in which voters overwhelmingly (98.2 percent) voted for this form of government.I remember thinking back then that 98% was a pretty good majority. 8-| I've been surfing around the April Fool's Day jokes today--I think some people have been waiting WEEKS to post some of these--especially new "softwares" like this one. And yes, I fell for that link hook, line, and sinker. This site was probably my favorite, though. I loved the description of the site:
Pin All Your Romantic Hopes on Google When you think about it, love is just another search problem. And we’ve thought about it. A lot. Google Romance™ is our solution. Google Romance is a place where you can post all types of romantic information and, using our Soulmate Search™, get back search results that could, in theory, include the love of your life. Then we'll send you both on a Contextual DateTM, which we'll pay for while delivering to you relevant ads that we and our advertising partners think will help produce the dating results you're looking for. With Google Romance, you can: * Upload your profile – tell the world who you are, or, more to the point, who you’d like to think you are, or, even more to the point, who you want others to think you are. * Search for love in all (or at least a statistically significant majority of) the right places with Soulmate Search, our eerily effective psychographic matchmaking software. * Endure, via our Contextual Dating option, thematically appropriate multimedia advertising throughout the entirety of your free date.Sounds great, eh? Make sure you take the tour! And then I looked at the link for posting profiles:
Post multiple profiles with a bulk upload file, you sleaze./snort Happy April Fool's, everyone!! I'm thinking that I should go into work this afternoon and announce that I am quitting and going here. And considering I was filling out the application this morning....... I only hope they don't consider my application as the best April Fool's joke of the day. My best April Fool's joke came back in 1992. I already knew I was pregnant with #2 at that time, but I hadn't told anyone yet, since I didn't want to get booted off my job for the duration the way I had with #1 a few years before--I couldn't afford to take the pay cut again just because somebody didn't like a pregnant woman on the job. Anyway, somehow, word got out that day that I was "in the family way". (Don't ask me how :-" ) Amazing how fast news like that travels, too!! I just grinned a lot until somebody noticed the date....so...they thought I was...then they thought I wasn't....but I really was, lol. Sometimes I crack myself up. ;-)
