Politically Incorrect

Happy Sunday, my beloved readers! I am doing the Happy Dance here, as my laptop liiiiives! I was so frustrated yesterday, I even tried to format my hard drive, but it wouldn't let me. So I went to my last resort (as if formatting your hard drive isn't bad enough), and called one of my geekier friends and asked for assistance. Bottom line: after 4 hours, a complete format and reinstall, dinner, and verifying I could (at least technically) connect to the Internet, my laptop is aliiiiive! I spent the better part of last night re-installing software and getting things back to what I call 'normal'.

Once again I can crop my pics, and all that other fun stuff. It really does not take much to make me happy.

Let's move on to the Politically Incorrect part of this post. Here is my offering:

And now for the explanation. I already had the donkey stamp (surprise!), but in one of my last trips to Angela's, I caved and got the elephant and sentiment, too (source: Custer's Last Stamp). I, myself, am not political, at least as far as the Party system goes, so this is not *my* statement ... I just thought it was funny!

I was not happy with any of my 12,000 sheets of patterned papers, so I made my own background. Oh, and look: the sentiment panel is crooked! I cannot even get things straight when I have lines to use as a guide! Sigh ....

I am working on the Scrap Heap, pulling various things off of it to use up so I do not have to put it away. So far, it seems to be working. I also have devised a plan for The Other Room to help me get more stuff out of sight. I'll tackle that project next month. So many things to do, but instead, today, I will be making corn bread, again. I am so close, I hope this is my last batch. I'll report back on my success, or not.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I'm not even American and it totally cracked me up!!!!
    I am a little curious about the corn - what is it??? Obviously we don't have such exotic things here in the land down under, so please may I have a picture and explanation??? I know I could just go google it...but it's much more fun to get you to tell me instead :)

  2. HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am *loving* this sentiment...and the card...TOO COOL! :)


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
