it's a pill and you've got to take it,

it's a pill that you've got to take.

it's a pill and you've got to take it.

i wont rest until you take it.

that's a heart that you made.

that's a heart and the both of you made it.

it's a heart that you made.

i wont rest until i break it.

six months from right now-- france. yes please. i need to make da moneys so i can be an arrogant, oblivious, dolladolla (euro) throwin' american. maybe i will find a frenchman to foot all my bills and buy kelli and me lots and lots of wine. hmm... but probably not, because i have a strong appreciation for men who bathe frequently, do not have extra-marrital affairs, and use deoderant.... i hear that is not the norm in france.

i have worked out that beside the actual cost of the trip (graciously being covered by my parents as a grad gift), i will need approximately $1,000 for a computer this summer/before college, about $600 in spending money for Europe, and hopefully i can swing $300 or so to buy myself a sexy pair of sunglasses (graduation/vacation present to myself). i am sick of my versaces. i'm thinking chanel. maybe d&g. WHO KNOWS.

i have a lot of shit i could sell. especially pony stuff, but i have a huge problem parting with things. i am the ultimate pack-rat with horsey items. i mean, come on, it never goes out of style. you can buy a good martingale for $250 in 1995, keep it gorgeous, and sell it for $200 now. i have to do it.

i like this because i'm pretty much talking to myself. it's like schizophrenia that's allowed.

who wants to teach me french? i should probably learn.

i won't rest until i don't care.

i won't rest until i forget about it.

I am 4% White Trash.
Not at all White Trashy!
I, my friend, have class. I am so not white trash. . I am more than likely Democrat, and my place is neat, and there is a good chance I may never drink wine from a box.

why, you ask, do i hate gw bush?
"It's an interesting look at this administration's policies when it comes to women (for the most part -- there are a couple items that deal with general issues.) On a side note, women historically vote in larger numbers than men, so I would encourage sending this to all your female friends. Just another thing to throw on top of the pile of reasons why this administration must go."

--Tim, from "Get Rid of Bush"

High Jumps for the Uninsured
GOP PLATFORM: Our efforts to build healthier families must begin with women -- our mothers, our daughters, our grandmothers and grand-daughters...

Over One Million Women Lost Health Insurance Under Bush's Watch. In 2003, the number of uninsured Americans increased by 1.4 million to 45 million. Overall, 13.9 percent (20.2 million) of women in America were uninsured in 2002 -- an increase of 1.3 million under Bush. [www.census.gov, Income Poverty and Health Survey, August 2004]

Belly Flopping on Equal Rights
GOP PLATFORM: We praise President Bush for his strong record on civil rights enforcement...
Wage Gap Widens As Bush Weakens Anti-Discrimination Enforcement. 2003 Census figures show that women's wages declined for the first time since 1995, with women earning just 76 cents on the dollar to men. At the same time, the DOL has ended the equal pay matters initiative, which identified wage discrimination by federal contractors, and the Department of Justice has brought fewer employment discrimination suits than the past three administrations. [Daily Labor Report, 1/12/04; NWLC, "Slip-sliding Away: The Erosion of Hard Won Gains for Women Under the Bush Administration and an Agenda for Moving Forward." To view these striking statistics, http://www.nwlc.org

Sinking Social Security
GOP PLATFORM: Voluntary personal retirement accounts for today's workers will make Social Security more equitable, but just as importantly, will put the system on firm financial footing.

Bush Pension Plans Only Benefit The Wealthiest Americans. Bush's push for individual retirement accounts and tax-free pension savings plans aid wealthy individuals who can afford to save for social security, while leaving middle- and lower-income individuals at a disadvantage. Wage earners in the top tenth percentile would enjoy two-thirds of the benefits from the tax subsidies. The loss of tax revenue would drain government coffers and threaten Medicare and Social Security when baby boomers can begin to take advantage of it. [New Republic Online, 2/4/04; CBO, 3/04; Leonard Burman, William G. Gale, and Peter R. Orszag, "The Administration's Savings Proposals: Preliminary Analysis," Tax Notes, 3/303; Tax Policy Center, 2/4/03]

Fouling Female Entrepreneurs
GOP PLATFORM: Small businesses are the most potent forces of economic growth and job creation in America...And they have been the primary vehicles of economic advance for American women.

Bush Blocked Federal Program to Assist Female-Owned Companies in Obtaining Government Contracts. The Women's Procurement Program was passed into law in 2000, but the Bush Administration blocked its implementation. Bush's new budget FY 2005 budget still fails to implement the program. In 2002, the federal government failed to meet its own women-owned business goal of 5 percent of contracting, a loss of an estimated $4.95 billion in opportunities for female entrepreneurs! [Business Courier, 8/15/03; Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones Press Release, 3/17/04; House Small Business Committee Democratic Staff, Federal Agencies: Closed to Small Business, 6/25/03]

Back-peddling for Flex/Comp-Time
GOP PLATFORM: More flexibility in the workplace will help Americans to better manage the demands of work and family... Comp-time and flex-time enable employees to choose paid time off as an alternative to overtime pay.

The Family-Time Flexibility Act: A Stealth Attempt to Make Americans Work More for Less Pay. The Republican-sponsored Family-Time Flexibility Act allows employers to compensate overtime work with time off in lieu of the standard time-and-a-half pay required for overtime. In reality, it allows employers to schedule workers for more hours worked per week, while avoiding paying for them. The new law provides less flexibility for workers, who will lack discretion in using their compensation time. The bill also lacks safeguards that will protect workers from employers who coerce workers to take flex time instead of overtime pay or from employers who discriminate against workers who choose overtime pay by allocating them fewer hours of overtime work. [Column, St. Louis Dispatch, 7/28/03; EPI Briefing Paper, 4/03; AFL-CIO, www.afl-cio.org]

"Poll" Vaulting with Votes
GOP PLATFORM: Our national commitment to a voting process that has integrity was underscored in 2002 when the Congress passed and the President signed the Help America Vote Act. We will continue to do all we can to ensure that every vote counts for all Americans.

Bush's Delay In Implementing HAVA Prevents Voting Reforms for Presidential Election. In October 2002, President Bush signed the "Help America Vote Act," in an effort to provide states with enough time to correct election irregularities by the 2004 elections. Bush delayed appointing commissioners to enact HAVA for over a year, and he limited the commission's funding. As a result, HAVA will not be able to create uniform federal guidelines for the November elections. [Chicago Tribune, 10/30/03, White House Bulletin, 10/29/03; New York Times, 10/17/02]

Landing The Perfect Zero In Support of Female Athletes
GOP PLATFORM: We support a reasonable approach to Title IX that seeks to expand opportunities for women without adversely affecting men's athletics.

Bush Guts Title IX. For every year Bush has been in office, his administration has tried to eliminate funding for the Women's Education Equity Act, which helps schools comply with Title IX and sponsors programs to promote gender equity in schools. Although Congress has restored funding for the act each year, the Women's Education Equity Resource Center, which coordinated the Act's programs, has been eliminated. [NWLC, "Slip-sliding Away: The Erosion of Hard Won Gains for Women Under the Bush Administration and an Agenda for Moving Forward,"]

.....so to all of you conservatives, chew on that for awhile.

i had fuuuuun at warped tour, shock. haha. but i think my shining moment was most definitely backstage, where i was unknowingly standing directly infront of adam from taking back sunday, while waiting for JT to get out his wallet. "what's the big deal?" you may ask. well, the 'big deal', loyal readers, is that melissa and my darling sister, tara, had placed a LARGE sticker across the entire back of my track jacket which had a black man saying "BADABING! BLINGBLING!". i had no idea the sticker was present until after i returned, and the two giggling fiends could contain themselves no more, and ripped it off my back and showed me. the worst part? i was only backstage to steal those assholes drinks. OH YEAH, AND TO BE EMBARASSED. but really, i'm lying, because the "BADABING" sticker was better than the midtown logo. sorry, gabe.

JT and i also lead very (a)rousing sing alongs during both coheed and cambria and new found glory. hahaha. golden.

P.S. warped tour is only fun when you get in for free.

where is my mind? ohhh.... wherrre is my miiind?

probably still at lake glory. with my cellphone charger.

camping is the absolute worst. at least in a twenty year old non-waterproof tent with holes, a spider infestation, three cranky girls, unseasonably cold temperatures, wet blankets, and a three-day-long-downpour.

oh, the fun we had in that godforsaken tent!
although, once we threw out the tent (literally) and went to a hotel... the REAL fun began!(and we look like total shit. remember this was our first time in real indoors for days... think "drowned rats"):

trashy is the new classy.

that girl will do anything for those thai noodles. but hey, at least we weren't still doing THIS:

talk about desperation!

moral of the story:

we will never go camping again (or stay in an econolodge).

so excited, and i just can't hide it. iknowiknowiknow....
Oh yeah, and I forgot....
(and don't feel like going to the "edit" blahblahblah page because my computer is being very slow!),
But Easy Street's Fedora (the name change is official!) and I have our hands (hooves?) on our hips and are eyeing up our competition! We are in heavy preparation for Bucks County Horse Park's Weekly Summer Schooling Series! Watch out, fellow Maiden Hunter competitors! I have Ella! The best pony EVER! Seriously, though, she's been absolutely terrific as of late, and we'll be using these little weekly shows to rake up some points for year-end awards and prepare for the United States Equestrian Association's Official Hunter/Jumper show... I'm quite nervous about that one :( but Ella and I are cocky as Man'O'War (Musical AND equine reference! How cool! But I was implying the band, not the horse), and I think we're really ready this year.

although, i am lucky that i have the best friends ever. best. i know. <33mrc/arp/abc<33
we are so fucking cheesy. but after lastnight, i'd seriously be dead without them. especially miss melissa cirba. she just.... saved me. even when i didn't deserve it. in the least.

"i know we are eternal, we always come back for more. switch on and off, is it my turn to be the abuser? i'll lay down and take this like a woman, if she'll just stand up for herself. so tired of cold hands and empty eyes. i need two thirds through november, we were satisfied bunnies, with nothing and somehow everything. time stood still. we felt smiles on our faces, wind in our hair, feet on broken brick. see this beautiful town? it was ours again. november 24th... you just stick out. a monday, enchanting. nothing to burden us, we strolled these streets, flipped through those records, rain fell in enormous, freezing drops. huddled under the awning of a coffee shop we rarely entered, watched the rain, ignored the faces of schoolmates, sucking on ugly cigarettes to match their ugly faces. one of those nights, like the old days... cocky, morbidly beautiful?, inseperable. looking into your smiling eyes, i couldn't imagine ever hurting her, talking behind her back, plotting her demise. our demise. we are the same. so different, but leading back to the same lost little girl. forver my partner in crime, the one who i can rip apart, just so i can spend the next year rebuilding. but now it's this hideous month, february.... her true demise has nothing and everything to do with me. a boy across the ocean who she can't seem to get enough of. this situation is terrible, enchanting, shocking. i know i will lose her to this. there aren't enough hand-holding-sessions and loving kisses to keep her lungs functioning. i'm serving as a witness to my best friend's expiration."
--i wrote that on the 23rd of february, and am feeling the same way. same way . it has been going on for far too long.
