Curtains…

Posted by on 27 Sep 2008 | Tagged as: sewing, wifehood

Made curtains for the first time earlier this month. Totally impromptu in design and execution. Made a couple mistakes, but was able to fix them. 🙂

I made curtains for an unusually-shaped window. :)

Palin keeps getting scarier

Posted by on 12 Sep 2008 | Tagged as: soapbox

Now I find out that Palin wanted rape victims to pay for their own rape kits!.

So this woman not only wants rape victims to pay to collect evidence, she also wants them to keep any pregnancy that results?

I think I may start praying for Obama to win. Never thought I’d ever do that, but I don’t want Palin anywhere near the White House!

An unusual post: Politics

I didn’t pay too much to all the election stuff until Sarah Palin was named as a running mate to McCain.

That woman is scary!

Read this to see why I think that way.

For all of you who are thinking “But… don’t you want a woman VP?”

Possibly, but–

I don’t want a woman VP who would take us back to early last century in terms of reproductive rights.

I don’t want a woman VP who left a small town in debt.

I don’t want a woman VP whose own daughter is an example that abstinence education doesn’t work.

I don’t want a woman VP who thinks it’s perfectly fine to try to get books banned from the library.

I don’t want a woman VP who has no qualms about firing experienced leaders in lieu of putting “yes men” in with her.

I don’t want a woman VP whose religious beliefs seem suspiciously like those of fundamentalist Muslims.

And lastly, I don’t want a woman VP just because Republicans are trying to court Hillary supporters.

Granted, I’m not a huge Obama fan, but he’s getting my vote. I voted for Nader in 2000, and that’s the last time I’m voting ideally. (Though I’m in California, so my state’s votes probably will go to Obama, no matter which candidate I decide to vote for.)

Another rattlesnake!

Rattlesnake, 9/9/08

We didn’t see any in August, which is supposed to be when they’re really active.
