Has anyone watched Tidying up with Marie Kondo on Netflix, or tried to apply the technique of releasing clothing that doesn’t ‘spark joy’? 

If anyone needs to go through a clothing purge, I recommend watching an episode to get you in the mood. 🙂 I am trying to do some… but I have to admit, it’s harder than it looks on tv. I don’t actually have that many clothes, they all fit in a 3 drawer dresser from Ikea, but it’s just some of them about 10+ years old.

I don’t have Netflix, so I haven’t seen Tidying up.  I can so relate to your post though.  I have a lot of clothes, still, from when I was working and some of them I just couldn’t part with, but now that several years have gone by, I’m ready to give them away.  They just are not me anymore.

I guess I was emotionally attached to my clothes.

Came across this today, because Westboro Baptist Church went through my mind for some strange. Some guy questioned members of that church awhile back and asked some real zingers. I found it highly amusing.

Russell Brand…took it to a whole new level, lol.  He has a Scorpio MidHeaven and it shows—he even brought some gay friends with him to sit at his desk while he planted himself between the two members he was interviewing. After his friends heckled the Westboro guys a bit, Russell chides them. “Stop upsetting my mates! They’re trying their best to be homophobic over here!” 🤣  He has a 5th house Sun in Gemini and that playfulness shines through. My 5th house Moon approves. 😁

 

  

 

They must have sensed me thinking about them a few months ago, because guess who protested at my town’s churches today!! 😂    

My work commute was disrupted, and there was a state patrol helicopter hovering over the area the whole morning. I could barely see the police barricades but there were protesters marching right down the street from one of my clients. I never did have to face them, thankfully, but there was a nice gathering of counter-protesters with their own signs facing them at each church. The Episcopal church rang it’s bell for 30 solid minutes to drown out the WBC. Overall things stayed calm.

I feel exactly the same way I did in February 1999. I’m thinking the exact same things. Saturn was at 28 Aries, Uranus is now at 28 Aries. 

I don’t have a midpoint at all in Aries, just Venus at 26.

I made the best mashed potatoes Ive ever made. For some reason, I’ve been craving this food lately.

Sounds yummy.  How’d you make them?  I love mashed potatoes.

It involved a good amount of butter, some milk, salt, pepper and garlic powder. I usually make it the same way all the time but this time was so much better for some reason? I wonder if it’s the amount of time the potatoes cooked or the proportions. The texture turned out very smooth and silky, not gluey in any way. I wish I had paid more attention to the proportions, but I just eye-balled it.

I purchased a cloth band with a velcro closure for my Fitbit and I can’t begin to tell you how much better that is than the plastic. I wouldn’t have believed it if someone had told me. Warm, soft, easy on and off.

Today is the first of three passes of transiting Saturn over my natal Saturn.

An ending of a particular life.

Coincides with my Personal Year 9.

Endings.  New beginnings.

Also.

Man, it’s a good thing I know what a Fitbit is… wink

Now that you mention this, I’m wondering how they pronounce Fitbit in French…?!

Egads… … …

Laughs!!! Really funny answer!

So I asked a 100% French person how to pronounce Fitbit, and as I’d dreaded it’s “feetbeet”, which is OK. But in French, phonetically beet/bite is an object of masculin anatomy whose name I will not mention here.

I know it’s stupid, but I just can’t help laughing!

Thanks Tam for the translation of fit, but not of bit! Got a great laugh out of that!

Then again, you might never know how this would turn out in Swahili, or Nicaraguan (to say nothing of Inuit).

Well ” Warm, soft, easy on and off.” This is where Chad the romantic poet intellectual comes in…!

Of course, as someone that is a Gemini Sun with Gemini Mercury, I will now be calling it a “feetbeet”. Because words are fun.
