Oh My Moon and Stars...Or...

...An Intellectual Pursuit of a Politically Incorrect Pile of Poop.

The 'Moon and Stars' must be realigning or spinning out of their ancient paths today to get my attention, because it's been ages since I paid much attention to my 'Daily Horoscope', but this morning I glanced down my 'InterNet Homepage' and read....

You'll be most interested by intellectual pursuits today, so feel free to put off plans for frivolous activities if you can.  Instead of shopping at the mall, pick up a book and settle into a comfy chair.  Instead of vegging out on the couch to some reality TV, check out what's on the History channel.  And instead of having a gossip session with friends, start a political conversation.  Your brain is hungry for stimulation and challenges, and it won't be settled until it gets it.

Never have I been so glad to follow my Horoscopes advice...'feel free to put off plans for frivolous activities if you can'...Oh Boy, Can I!!!  No washing and hanging out for me today...Yay!!!

'Instead of shopping at the mall, pick up a book and settle into a comfy chair'.  I never shop at the mall...I'm a Goodwill Hunter, and I do have a stack of books from my favorite Used Book Shop.  Then there's my Free Downloads on my Kindle...I'm currently reading AtoZer Rinelle Grey's Restless Rescuer.  It's HERE on Amazon.  It's a SciFy Romance...perfect for a Moon and Stars reading day.

Instead of vegging out on the couch to some reality TV, check out what's on the History channel.  That will be easy this evening, which is about the only time I watch TV....since the only reality show I watch is over for the season.  Survivor Caramoan winner, John Cochran, cinched my vote with "Don't say anything about my Mom, Jeff"!   About the History Channel...it just might be the best thing on TV, and if you are wondering about my favorite programs...that's them to the right.  More of my 'Moon and Stars' weirdness!
And instead of having a gossip session with friends, start a polictical conversation.  Now that's a good one!  I am about the most 'Politically Incorrect' person you will ever meet, and I seldom if ever discuss politics with anyone except HiHoney, my husband, and then only because it makes him LOL!!!  However, since I've been encouraged to speak out about politics, I'll say a few things in this post about my 'Political Viewpoint' on a current issue.  This is a one time thing ya'll, so remember my tendency to write 'Irreverently and Politcally Incorrectly' about topics I hold dear to my heart or don't know the first thing about. 
 
When you look at this picture...what do you see?   I'm sure you know a leading question when you see one, but it pretty much will give you a sense of how my visual mind works.  So here goes.
 
As a Genealogist, I believe that history repeats itself and as a politically incorrector, I believe what goes around comes around and in the coming around it picks up alot of stuff/junk relative to the times.  FYI...I did not get here via a Time Machine...although I'd give it a try, and I've not come across any Tsoukalos' in my Family Tree, but I'm pretty sure Mike and Frank are distant cousins from my mama's Iowa Picker roots.
 
I'm going to relate the watering trough to the recent headlines concerning, of all things a 'Tax Exempt Tea Party'.  I've never thrown a fancy Tea Party, so I was pretty surprised that anyone who did or does can get a Tax Break for accepting donations of name brand teas.  I'm no conissour of tea, but I do know about and have sipped (filled my trough) with one or two expensive exotic teas.  I am a nonpartisan member of a 'Wednesday Knitting Tea Party' where donations/samples of plain and exotic teas fill our trough.  I wonder if we would qualify for a tax exempt status, afterall we do have Tea Party in our title, and I'm telling you now, yarn is not cheap!
 
One of the things I really treasure about our Wednesday Knitting Tea Party is the 'Yarn Stash'...another full trough.  However, it never occurred to me to delve any further into a skeins integrity other than coming from a fine wool sheep, a domestic Alpaca or an industrial acrylic.  Imagine the scandal that would be created with the 'laundering of secret yarns'.  That would become a greater scandal than any misconduct of the WKT. 
 
You know there is alot more to the picture than the watering trough, right?  Of course there is!  It's the quintessental visual example of  'A picture is worth a thousand words' for the posed questions...
When you look at this picture what do you see? 
Do you see a Water Trough or Piles of Poop?
Are either worthy of investigating further?
Do Piles of Poop stink to high heaven?
Your brain is hungry for stimulation and challenges, and it won't be settled until it gets it.
Oh My Moon and Stars...my brain is over stimulated!!!

 What do I know...I'm just a nonpartisan heifer from Texas who takes pictures of Piles of Poop!

  2. A fellow West Texan and a sister Aquarian...wow! I am also not a mall shopper, I avoid it like the plaque, I do the same with politics. To me it all smells pretty much like those aromatic piles in your picture! A Wednesday Knitting Tea Group sounds like great fun, it's been years since I have knitted, yarn has come a long way from the old days of one kind fits all!

  3. another laugh out loud post ! Our tv watching is very similar and no disrespect to Mr.Tsoukalos' but my GRAND and I call him "weird hair guy" because you never know how it will look next. It's been years since I've been to a mall, other than antique, give me a good junk store any day (())

  4. I shouldn't laugh that hard when I'm this sore from gardening...fantastically funny, spot on post. I don't do politics either because why get involved in something where there's more poop to step in than grass!
    Love me some knitting, and if I were anywhere near TX, would love to join your group.

  5. I can always go for that horoscope. That's how I lean most of the time. My brain likes the stimulation.

  6. Finally being able to visit you, Sue. It's a wonderful job you've done here with your blog. I like the look of it A LOT! I would watch History Channel over a silly gossip show anytime! My best!

  7. You might have as much luck trying to get tax-exempt status as the tea partier pols. But if the pendulum swings the other way now to make up for their troubles, you just might make it. LOL. I saw nicely framed piles of poop. Is this sort of like am I a glass half-empty or glass half-full kind of person? Rather than a nurturer/giver of life I'm a shit?

  8. I might have to check my horoscope to see if it will stimulate my brain. I doubt I can match your creativity though. What a fun post!

  9. I like how you day went after you read that horoscope! I think I still have a sterling silver charm on my old charm bracelet that has my sign "Sagitarrius". Hee Hee
