Starbucks has up on their website a recall for an entire line of coffee brewers. Go to to see if you might have one of the “bad brewers”.

There is a very thin line sometimes between “recipes” and “spells”.
I just got this today from my DAILY OM and thought it seemed familiar. I then went searching through my spellcasting books and cookbooks. I found it in one of the wicca books and one of my cookbooks.

*slice 3 lemons
*grate fresh ginger, about one teaspoon
* take once clove of garlic minced
*and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
boil in 5 cups of fresh water then strain adding honey to taste
Drinking this 3 times a day is said to help keep a cold/flu from hitting you.

What type of person do you attract?

Your Result: You attract artsy people!

Those free spirited artists with great imaginations find you interesting. They are usually interesting themselves, so its not a bad thing, but they CAN be a bit wifty and choose odd goals. If you like life to always be a bit ‘different’ from the norm, but not too extreme in any one direction, these are the people for you. If you seek logical decision making skills and good money management, you may want to change something in the way you appear. Artsy people are fun for adventure and exploring, so, have fun! (smoking weed helps too)

You attract models!
You attract unstable people!
You attract Yuppies!
You attract geeks!
You attract rednecks!

{December 8, 2006}   Cubical Be Gone

It’s not that new of an idea. Giving office workers the extreme flexiblity to chose when they come and go and if they come in to the officebuilding at all. For the past decade working from home, on the road and none 9-5 hours has grown in all fields all over the world. Now companies like Best Buy are offering their employees the chance to create their own hours-in-office stating they are more interested in the amount of work getting done then the amount of hours on the timesheets. This way of working has been in place for the past couple of years and is now getting into the headlines. Artists have been doing this forever as well as single parents so why not the rest of the world.

{December 5, 2006}   Just Call Me Jughead.

The Archies comics always have the character of Jughead eating. And eating hamburgers most of the time. And that I did. Morning, Noon and Night. I would make myself two hamburgers with lettuce, extra cheese, onions, mustard, ketchup, pickles, and potatochips. I had times when I ate them more then once a day, and always two, sometimes three at a time. There was always a frypan sitting on the back burner of the stove with melted cheese and bits of onion in it and a spatula sitting beside it. When it came to making hamburgers, no one, and I mean no one on our block could do better. When one of my friends was pregnant 12 years ago with her daughter it was my hamburgers that she craved the entire time. To the point one night around 11pm she called me saying she was coming over with the ingredents for burgers cause she didnt just want drivethru or anyone else to make her “just a burger”. I ended up becoming a 300pound woman with bad skin in part to my love of hamburgers and anything made with hamburger. 4 years ago I gave them up. I went vegetarian. I still crave burgers but not to the extent I used to. I am thinking it must be the same of an addiction, you never really stop wanting what you are addicted to. I do enjoy trying to find a decent veggy burger, but it will never be the same. But at lest now I am a much happier, healthier, trimmer woman at a nice 138pounds with much much better skin too!

Well, it was something I have been dreading for years, but I needed to come clean with my mom about my life. I have been an occultist (pagan, witch, spellworker, wiccan whichever term you feel good with) for almost 20 years. Mom did not take it well.
At first she was afraid I was going to tell her I was pregnant or into chicks or something but when I told her that I am an occultist she broke down crying. (she was very relieved to find out I am straight but right away started with “when will you give me a grandchild then?” and “why can’t you find a husband?”)
So her way of dealing with it is to make really bad jokes about it. Everytime now when we talk she will say stuff like “Oh they better not piss you off, cause you’re a witch, put a hex on them” which is not feeling the greatest, but I suppose it’s her way of dealing with it.
Blessed it Be!

How do you see yourself when you get married?
I had a woman say to me awhile back that she pictured me with the whole white church wedding. Which is as anyone who knows me just not me. She was shocked when I said I would be fine with an Drive-thru-Love-Me-Tender-Vegas-Elvis wedding, and I am not even an Elvis fan. I am always fascinated by what other women decide to do with their wedding day. Most of the females in my family had the large frilly-white wedding that was planned since they could walk. I am interested in how people are viewing the celeb weddings we keep reading about in the gossip/news. I was reading just now about the wedding of Tom Cruise this weekend, and how some of the vows might include “a cat”. Seems silly to me, but then again so does white frilly dresses that you pay $400.000 for and wear once.
