Why Me? Penguin

The stained glass curtain you're hiding behind never lets in the sun...

I think I may be losing a little bit of weight. Not a lot mind you but a couple of pounds never hurt anyone right? Some days I feel like losing all the weight in the world wouldn't be enough, but then I have to remind myself that those feelings have more to do with my inside than my outside...

So a little memeness and the weekend this or that (I won't post a new one until Monday). Because it's the weekend I will make this one a three way! (oooh kinky!)
silver, gold, or copper?

The Dante's Inferno Test has banished you to the Third Level of Hell!
Here is how you matched up against all the levels:
Purgatory (Repenting Believers)Very Low
Level 1 - Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers)Moderate
Level 2 (Lustful)Moderate
Level 3 (Gluttonous)High
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious)Very Low
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy)High
Level 6 - The City of Dis (Heretics)High
Level 7 (Violent)High
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers)High
Level 9 - Cocytus (Treacherous)Low

Take the Dante's Inferno Hell Test

I haven't looked at my f-list this morning, so I don't know if my previous friends only post pushed anyone away or not, but I have a lot of things in my past that I don't often share with people I meet, because they are painful and most people don't want to hear them. Very rarely, I post them as friends only entries because I cannot keep them in all the time Hope this doesn't bother anyone. Everything else on my journal is public, so you see a friends only entry you can expect it is something I need to get off my chest, but don't want everyone to see. Comments are always welcome and even encouraged. Thanks to all of you for being friends!

Ugh I am hungry for dinner already. Unfortunately, I can't eat because we are going to dinner with my husband's boss and coworkers ... GROAN!

So the fire yesterday? LARGEST IN RICHMOND SINCE THE CIVIL WAR! What the hell? And to think I sat there watching it burn for over twenty minutes before going back to the office! Weird!

I got some cleaning done today, but not nearly as much as I should have. *Shrug*

Okay, I am off to shower and begin getting ready, but in the meanwhile don't forget to take a look at the weekend's this or that threeway:

Silver, Gold, or Copper?

So I was going to do an audiopost...

so you could all hear my voice. And I did. Don't ask me how it sounded because I never got to hear the blasted thing because my dumbass ACCIDENTALLY DELETED IT!


In other news dinner was fabulous and free (woohoo)!

I wore earrings tonight for the first time in two years.

So anyway, part of the audio-post was reading "George Crabbe" by Edwin Arlington Robinson. For those who don't know, Crabbe was a Romantic poet who has kind of dipped into obscurity. The poem is especially odd because it seems that Robinson foretold his own criitcal fate in talking about the dismissal of Crabbe.

Anyway, along with "Miniver Cheevy" (which is my absolute favorite)and "Reuben Bright" (which I also like very much) George Crabbe is among my favorite of Robinson's poems.
