OK, so I haven't been Catholic since I was 13, but I've been reading a lot of interfaith tracts about a universalist practice of Lent. I thought, yes! Secular Lent! Get rid of the dogmatic guilt, and use it as a pre-spring time to clean some garbage out of my life.
So, I'm trying to quit procrastinating. This has not been easy since Mardi Gras was two weeks ago, and I haven't made a blog post about it until today. However, I did start to finish a quilt that's been a backless top until now, I'm purging junk off my dining room table that's been sitting around since last summer, and keeping priorities straight with my sewing - like making the curtains before cutting out a shirt.
Maybe I'll start using some more of the downtime to get going with my Etsy.com site.
On Politics: Can I go on about the delusions of the right wing any more than has been said by any other blogger? I'm getting sick and tired of the "Obama recession" - that started at the end of 2007! I'll apologize to Rush later.
On Pop: It was so nice of all the NYC radio stations to play U2 all week - good of them to help out a struggling young band. I mean, I respect their musicianship and all; I probably won't turn the songs off the radio, but let's be real. Do they really need the help? How about some airplay and CD sales of an African artist instead of having charity money filtered through Bono?
