Well I woke up this morning with another quandary. (is that spelled right?) What REALLY is the difference between getting a tattoo and getting a boob job? They're both permanent enough to require similar treatments to undo them if you change your mind. They are both about "decorating" your physical person, making a statement, feeling like you've made some improvement. Some will say, "A tattoo is ART..." Tell me, do you want someone without any artistic skills working on your boobs? Sure you can get 5 or 10 small tattoos for the price of a nice set of boobs. So then is the tattoo the "poor man's" way to decorate? I have a tattoo, don't get me wrong. I really like them. But until I woke up this morning, really, I had some screwed up idea about plastic surgery - that only snooty shallow people do that sort of thing. But I had to face the fact that it's all the same damn thing. Make me "pretty". There you go. Top 2 reasons I don't have new boobs - 1. I'm cheap. 2. I'm a wimp. I've come to realize that if it were more affordable and less scary, there'd be an "I left at high speed" dust cloud where I'm sitting right now as I bolted out to talk to the boob guys. Why, you may wonder, would I consider a boob job? I've had three kids. 'Nuff said. Jeez.
So get your boob jobs, get your tattoos, decorate yourself up, get pretty, etc. And don't let anyone tell you you're wrong for doing it. It's your body, it's your money, it's your life. Who cares what anyone else thinks?

1. I need butter.
2. Words to the wise - Never try to remove an egg from the carton that is mysteriously stuck there. It makes a big mess.
ok, let me preface this by saying, I am NOT anti- new age. In fact, when I mention "new age topic" my husband says, "Alyce, YOU are a new age topic." So I hear dead people - I don't see them - used to but I asked them to stop because it freaks me out. I don't mind hearing them. I've done some automatic writing. Stopped that because it too freaks me out. lol. And I completely believe in conscious manifestation of your own reality. And plenty more. That said, and having established myself as an official flake of the first order, I have *this* to say.
I've never in all my 40 years on the planet met any child who did not *qualify* by definition as an indigo, crystal, rainbow or star. So what's the deal? The world, and the people in it are so screwed up that they need labels to feel special. Labeling kids this way implies there are some who are more special than others. Is this wise? Does this make sense? If someone should decide any particular child is not an indigo, et al, should this child just roll over and die because they aren't special or aren't going to contribute to the world? And who is qualified to pass out these labels? I read something where a three year old strung a rubberband across two knobs to make a towel hanger. This supposedly demonstrated "indigo" status. This is genious? This is wise beyond years? This is something to write home about? No. This is normal kid creativity.
I read another entry on a message board for ICRS kids. The woman posted "Oh my god! My 2 week old crystal baby has acne!" As if, first of all, the acne had anything to do with a "crystal kid" situation. And as if, second of all, anyone could identify someone as qualifying as ICRS at two weeks of age - unless the kid was already spouting soliloquies or reporting on the state of the afterlife, etc. I say, Lady... perhaps the formula is a mite rich. A little warm water and a cotton ball will clean up baby's face.
This entire thing is crap. Every few decades we get a new one. The star children of the early 80's... remember that? Ok, so I'm not old enough to remember specific labels that much predated that, but if stories of my family - mother, grandmother, various earlier ancestors, are to be believed then they've ALL been ICRS (indigo, crystal, rainbow, star).
Is this rational? And if the stories of EVERYONE else I've EVER talked to are to be believed, the entire population of the planet for generations has been ICRS. It's my opinion that this whole thing was conceived because people needed to feel special. It's a sad statement. Everyone is special. If parents and systems (govt., school, etc.) didn't crush the spirits of everyone by the time they were 5, we'd all feel as special as we are. And THEN how about all these people making money off everyone's need to feel special?
The entire thing is bunk... and it's wrong.

I continue to be surrounded by dullards.

I see the last time I posted was only a month ago. I was happy the day I took those pictures. Or at least still working toward something here. A lot sure can happen in a month.
