Can I Get a "F**k Yeah!"?

Tonight, the Ellensburg School Board voted to implement a comprehensive sex education policy.  Meaning that students of public schools in Ellensburg will get medically accurate and comprehensive sex education (i.e., info about condoms and birth control, as well as abstinence).  Words cannot express how stoked I am.  Or how proud.

Take that, certain school board member who sucks butt.  She brought it to the table, thinking she could outlaw it and she lost.  Big time.  

F**k yeah!

Totally Unexpected

I have found a new love...well, a new infatuation. Totally unexpected. Didn't even think it was what I was looking for. Thought I would hate it, find it abhorrent.

But, I don't...
This show, about a serial killer who kills other killers. Very good. And, so far, two ex-Buffy actors have appeared. Making it even better.

After years of searching, I think I've found my craft - embroidery.

My pal, Nan, over at Tattooed Yarn, is teaching me all about hand sewing, via her blog and e-mails. And she started me out with embroidery. I bought a kit from Sublime Stitching and the book, The Alabama Stitch Book.

I started with the kit and am working on learning and becoming proficient at basic stitches. I'm learning on an old Ikea dish towel with citrus fruit printed on it. I'm simply following the lines and trying different stitches. I'm also reading the Alabama book, but I'm thinking it will be a while before I attempt any project in that book - they're intimidatingly beautiful.

I really like embroidery - it's very mellow and simple, yet beautiful and open to all sorts of possibilities.

I'm Back, Y'al!

Hey!  Ms. Fabulous is here.  Enjoyin' my day off.  Yo!

So, I have the pics from the Alaska Cruise all put together - I now just need to figure out how to easily get them on the Internets.  Stay tuned!

To keep you occupied and happy until then - three of my very favorite youtube videos!

Athens Boy Choir: Fagette (for some reason, youtube no longer loves the blogger, so I can't post directly)

Sonya Renee: Women Deserve Better  A-f**kin'-men

Sexual Harassment (definitely NOT work appropriate)

Enjoy!  Happy, happy Friday!
