|09:20 pm - Writer's Block: TV on the PC|
How often do you watch TV shows or movies on your computer? What determines whether you watch on your TV versus your computer?
If I miss my Tues/Wed/Thur shows for class (which is every week this semester) I watch my shows online over the weekend.

|11:28 am - Interesting and Thought Provoking|
I had an interesting phone conversation with a new –old friend yesterday.
We were talking about what’s been going on in our lives since high school and when he went on to talk about his marriage, he said he doesn’t use her name because it gives her familiarity that he no longer feels for her. I thought this was interesting and I think that from now on I might try that with the two ex’s that have made the biggest impact on my life.
I know some of you (Anna, Kendra, Rob) will have thoughts on this so feel free.

|02:56 pm - Writer's Block: Go to the head of the class|
When you take a class or attend a big meeting, where do you prefer to sit? Up close or way back where you can make a speedy get-away? Can you force yourself to focus even when you're not interested?
In my classes I sit in the back...mostly because that's where the plugs are and I usually take notes on my laptop.
Current Mood: cheerful

You are The Empress
Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.
The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.
The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
