i took the weekend to recoup and had a great time with the ladybug and got some good soccer in as well.
there is still one thing that is completely irritating me to the point of wanting to scream at this person and confront them. (and you have to push me VERY VERY far in order for that to ever happen). i have now had to make my myspace private which i am extremely upset about because i do have friends out there that do not have myspace accounts, but are able to see mine because i've always kept it open. i asked this stalker of mine, whom i will now name, STACI to please refrain from lurking around on my blog and my myspace twice now. i've done it in the nicest way possible. i made a post about a week back that i had since deleted after i knew she had read it, but alas, i still find her IP address on my sitemeter. after i saw this AGAIN, i went ahead and sent her an email directly asking her as nicely as i possibly could to stop visiting my sites and to stay out of my life. after doing so, her IP address is still showing up. more so on my myspace than this blog now. apparently she doesn't realize that i have figured out her home IP address and it shows up as verizon in plano, texas - along with her work IP address. i might not be completely in tune with in depth computer workings, but i am also pretty versatile and can figure things out on my own.
i do not understand the mind of people like this when someone asks you nicely to stop doing something and you just are so obsessed with having to delve into this person's life that isn't even part of your own. it's very sad. she needs to work on her own life and her children other than obsessing on things that are none of her business in the first place.
hopefully this is the last time i'm going to have to mention this. if it doesn't stop now, i will have to create another blog where she will be unable to find it and continue to keep my myspace private, which i do not wish to do, because i'm not that private of a person.
anyway....sorry for the bitch session, but this is my last resort.
i sure hope you all had a lovely weekend and i hope this week brings you joy.

i had yet to actually sit down and read it - i actually let my friend josi borrow it about a year ago...last time i was at the book store i saw it and decided to buy another copy because i was ready to delve into it.
i got home from work last night and decided i was going to straighten up the house, start on some laundry and have some "me" time. i lit some candles, lit my nag champa, curled up in my bed and opened the front cover. next thing i knew, i was finished with the entire book. never in my life have i sat down in one setting and finished a book. (unless of course maybe it was only 100 pages or something of the sort).
how ironic is it that my spiritual journey has started and my questions and initial beliefs coincide with tori amos'? i learned so much about her from reading this book. i knew she was a preacher's daughter and grew up in a somewhat strict christian environment. but i didn't know the details. until now. the way i was raised was very similar to the way tori was raised. not in all aspects, but in the stricter sense and also being taught that sexuality was taboo and masturbation was not thought of or done. that sex was not had until marriage and the main purpose was procreation. yes, that's what i was taught. (i love my parents very much and believe they did a wonderful job and the best job they could in raising me, but i do disagree with those things - i hope to be able to tell my daughter it's ok to explore your sexuality and sex is not just for making babies). with all of that stated, it took me a LONG time to explore myself sexually - i was a very late bloomer in that aspect and it's taken me a long time to figure out who i am in that sense as well.
tori serves the magdalene. “I don’t only serve the Magdalene, I serve an idea. The idea of the resurrected Feminine. ” i am envious of how connected she is to the sacred feminine. both the magdalene and the sacred mary. all the thoughts that have been muddled in my brain make a little more sense after i read this book.
"piece by piece" hit #12 on the new york times best seller list in 2005. and i'm certainly not surprised. if any of you out there like tori amos, male or female, i strongly suggest going out and getting this book and exploring the inner tori. she's so much more than what she's labeled "a strong feminist ballbreaker" as i've heard her called before. from the inside cover:
I choose to fight my battles through my music . . . I was born a feminist. And then at age five, when my strict Christian grandmother punished me, I realized, I’m not penetrating here. I’m just pissing people off. So I had to find another way to penetrate. I had to redefine what that word means. That word now is really about an opening, an entering into a separate space. And after the first phase of my life, I realized that it was okay to enter that space without having to be invaded . . . I like the idea of just being able to be inside. Not using penetration as a violent word. The idea of being able to find keys . . . music, using keys to get into a space that we couldn’t before . . . Now, backstage at an undisclosed arena where the sweat of athletes is still perfuming my makeshift dressing room, my many conversations with Ann Powers have begun…
“You come from the journalist side. I come from the artist side. It can become offensive. I’m sure from your side as well as from mine.”
“Well, it’s true everyone expects us to be enemies. And in some ways we are. My job is interpretation. Yours is art, which often benefits from mystery . . .”
Ann and I decided to strip our roles back to basics. We are both women born feminists in the 1960s. We are both married. We are both mothers. We are both in the music industry. Traditionally we are enemies. But for this project to be effective, I had to allow Ann to expose Tori Amos. And Tori Amos’s inner circle. And me.”

anyway....i came across this blog many many moons ago and fell in love with it. how cool was this chick who lives in rural wyoming, found a baby coyote pup who was orphaned and took it in to raise? not to mention her photography is beyond impressive.
so i finally went into her "about us" section this morning and found her other blog about her ventures and photography from her trip from san fran to ny on a vespa. on...a...freakin...vespa. and how she loved this tiny town of 300 people so much in wyoming that she turned back after getting the ny and settled in this low populated, beautiful land...with minimal EVERYTHING. what an inspiration she is. and she's only 30. wow. i hope you enjoy reading as much as i did.
they had some great hits (as well as when they were english beat prior to general public), but this is definitely one of my top favorites. happy friday all.
