December 2008


OOOOOHHHH–just got out of a great movie–MILK–see my post tomorrow–but then drove downtown, not far, maybe 5 minutes, to see the x-mas lights at centeniel park, and happened upom all the FOOTBALL fans coming out of the SEC game–GO GATORS!!!!

SO honeykins & I drove around the ATL and did the gator “chop-chop” to everybody we saw (doors locked) and laughed at the poor old alabama fans (sorry lippy) and had a blast.  we took the dogs with us, and kiz had the best tine barking at the enemy!

My name is Jules, and I am (deep breath, pause…) a facebook addict.

All together now–” Hi, Jules!!”

This is so hard for me to admit. I just never thought it could happen to ME! I’ve heard people talk about how great it was, how it freed them of inhibitions, but it never really interested me. Friends had even tried to tempt me with weaker stuff in the past-myspace. I glanced, just a bunch of kids in sexually suggestive poses–not for me, thanks.

But then this past Sunday nite, I got a message in my inbox that “Morgan has invited you to be his friend on facebook.” I clicked. Oh, bad move, Jules. That’s like flicking the BIC-the start of a downward spiral. I soon learned that I couldn’t communicate w/ Morgan unless I joined. So I did. It was so easy. Too easy. Next came (more…)

Ok, so we’ve just returned from thanksgiving in Ky. and as usual were presented with the “wish-lists” of nieces and nephews. Chanel boots, Prada bags, Tiffany jewelry–this shit’s CRAZY, man!  Every year it’s the same song and dance–“what can I get xxxx?”

This year, it’s gonna be different. I will make gift donations in peoples names. I know it sounds boring, but the majority of people that we are obligated to “buy for” have all they want and more. Here are some of my favorite charities:

Best Friends Animal Society,   The Wilderness Society ,   Sierra Club,  Humane Society,    Heifer International

Heifer allows you to purchase a gift of a cow, sheep, chickens, honeybees, etc (or a share in one) to help sustain a community. It teaches self-reliance following the reasoning that it’s better to teach a man to fish than to buy him a fish that will feed him just once. The animals multiply, produce milk, eggs, pull plows, and continue to improve life to those in need. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

These are just a few of the many wonderful charitable organizations out there. So if you’re thinking about getting me another bathrobe for Christmas, skip it. I’ll take a llama.
