the hanged man

I felt I needed to do this today and oddly it makes sense.
And to bring it full circle, I am currently reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman. One of the characters happens to be Odin, or some form of him. Strange how things twist their ways into other things and we learn more about one thing from looking into another.

You are the Hanged Man

Self-sacrifice, Sacrifice, Devotion, Bound.

With the Hanged man there is often a sense of fatalism, waiting for something to happen. Or a fear of
loss from a situation, rather than gain.

The Hanged Man is perhaps the most fascinating card in the deck. It reflects the story of Odin who offered himself as a sacrifice in order to gain knowledge. Hanging from the world tree, wounded by a spear, given no bread or mead, he hung for nine days. On the last day, he saw on the ground runes that had fallen from the tree, understood their meaning, and, coming down, scooped them up for his own. All knowledge is to be found in these runes.

The Hanged Man, in similar fashion, is a card about suspension, not life or death. It signifies selflessness, sacrifice and prophecy. You make yourself vulnerable and in doing so, gain illumination. You see the world differently, with almost mystical insights.

give in

The Real Housewives of New Jersy has sucked me right in like a shop vac to a crusty m’n’m. I was hooked when i saw the second season of New York and then when they showed the previews for New Jersey it was ova’!

I finally got to watch the latest episode where Teresa gets her “bubbies” and it was hysterical. Her husband is the typical, “well you gotta go bigga’ cause dell shrink, yeah?”
I love how she comes out of it and is all groggy and wants her hubby to play nurse and then in typical Teresa style, where its all about your outfit and how you accessorize, she says, “I want ya to wear one of those little outfits for me, yeah, and da little g-string too, k, hun?” I really did laugh out loud.
I have to say Dina, Teresa and Caroline are my favorites and yes this is over the top reality TV and yes, I really do walk away from the show feeling like I have lost some brain cells while viewing.

look of the day 6.12.2009

This is such a comfortable outfit and i really love my gladiator sandals so i wear them every chance i get. I took the photo after picking up the kids so i inevitably ended up with paint on my pants.
Stopped in at “Big Fun” that just opened up on the west side. I stopped to look at their Star Wars collection and realized I have about 1/4 of it at home. *score*
I was tempted to pick up some fake cockroaches for my team meeting the next day so I could get a good laugh when we met up at breakfast. I opted not to because some people just may not share my sense of humor.
I did get a fake snake to scare the boyfriend. (he’s such a pussy) and the can of fake nuts, with the spring things that pop out. I thought that would be funny to hand to the 3 year old and catch on video!

This outfit is so simple and yet soooo cheap. I bet the whole outfit (minus the tank under my shirt)  is under $50. The shirt is also really cool in that the sleeves roll up to reveal a buffalo plaid.
Oh and these jeans have some great studding detail on the back but I didnt want to take that picture ’cause my ass is a bit grand and my black and white underwear, that I didnt think before putting on, shows through! ha

So – what do you think of my rags of the day?

art of the day

This is just another piece of art found in the halls of my workplace.

“In this piece, the repetition of Patricia Hearst’s portraits tracing the events of her life–from her First Communion at 13 through her marriage to her bodyguard–could be paralled to the different images of her, invented and reinvented by the FBI, SLA, her parents, lawyers, and psychiatrists and then filtered through the media. Her life also parallels the history of our country from the ’60s through the ’70s.”

look of the day 6.05.09

Just another post. My pants are a tad too long but I just dont have time to hem them lately. I think this outfit works better without the sweater on top but I hate to show my arms and it’s always cold inside too. These are the Miss Sixty heels that I picked up in Vegas ON SALE – Yeah!
