The Ballistic Princess Strikes Again!

Only me, I swear.

Avery, the daredevil of the toddler world, the child who looks at danger and scoffs, the little girl who cripples me with fear when it gets too quiet in the house, the Ballistic Princess™ herself, has both terrified and injured me this morning.

Her new thing is to go into the cabinet underneath the silverware drawer in the kitchen. She takes everything in there, dish towels, pot holders, colanders, etc. and throws them out into the kitchen floor so she can climb into the cabinet and hide. Well today she decides to climb up onto the upper shelf, which I cannot understand HOW she's hoisting herself onto. I was making Black & White soup for us to have for lunch and unloading the dishwasher when she starts yelling at me. I turn around and she's hanging on for dear life to the top of the cabinet door, which is swinging open, about to fall on the tile floor, so instinct kicks in and I dive to catch her and break the fall. I saved her from falling alright, but at the expense of throwing my lower back out again and diving headfirst into the handle of the silverware drawer. So now I have a headache and my vision is blurry and my back hurts like whoa...

So what did Avery do as I'm clutching my head with one hand and holding my back with the other? She clapped for me and screeched "YAYYYYYY!!!!!!"

I swear, between Avery and her brother, I'm living with Calvin & Hobbes.

I updated my user info page. It needed a fresh coat of paint.

My back still hurts, I took some ibuprofen for it but it's laughing at that. I hope it doesn't bother me for long, I really hate having to skulk around like this...

Two new treatments are almost ready for Nexus, wil hopefully get them posted by this evening. With any luck, I'll get inspired and do something very abstract and conceptual.

Hello, my name is Ann Coulter... SIEG HEIL!!!!

You know, I cannot figure it out, this Ann Coulter being. She's very intelligent, which is appealing... She rips Kate Moss into shreds in her new book - also appealing... ::recalls defacing a Calvin Klein poster in Atlanta years ago by scrawling the words "FEED ME" across the emaciated stomach of a scantily clad Kate Moss at a bus stop, thinks to self "Yep... Good times...":: She's friends with Bill Mahr, who couldn't be more the water to her oil, so in that respect she's at least somewhat likable...

Then she makes statements like this: "In a way, I wish there were more conservatives like Gary Bauer demanding federal laws that would outlaw sex education, communism, atheism, condoms, Birkenstocks, New York Times' editorials -- everything you can think of that would cause a liberal to screech" and I have an ethical aneuysm.

Judge for yourself, peruse this archive of editorials I found that were written by her.

In a way, I view her friendship with Mahr as being somewhat similar to mine with Renea. She considers herself the new face of conservative Republicanism, ::feels core of being shudder violently for a microsecond:: and I'm the Godless Liberal Humanist, and a big ol' queer to boot - essentially the antithesis of everything considered sacred by the GOP. Renea and I have spent hours talking about all sorts of political issues, and even though we must concede agreement by means of disagreement, at the end of a day I love her to bits and there's nothing I wouldn't do for her. She thinks my political views are just as misguided as I think hers are, so it's rather an even playing field. It is my honor to know such a fine person, it is my pride that she thinks similarly of me, and that's what makes us us. Well, that and our penchant for mercilessly mocking the weak and stupid, and our sarcasm and cynicism that I think borders on the legendary.

It's rather funny to me, in a way. I have friends from every walk of life, each representing something like me and something foreign to me. I know people who consider themselves all sorts of things, and I wonder who they think they're fooling. Which is why it is my policy to take 90% of people at their actions and never at their word. For me to take you at your word means that you have never at any time given me reason to question you or your motives, you've put your money where your mouth was faithfully and cited factual evidence as means of debate instead of baseless assertion after trite, arrogant, baseless assertion.

There was a point to all of this, I'm quite sure there was, but I took a Darvocet for my back about an hour or so ago and my entire spine feels like warm jelly. In a good way. Yeah.
