Gee 1 or However Many

Your Excellence
The summit meeting will convene at Raging Universe this evening. The menu will consist of a whole wheat pita appetizer with capers and Mars-dried tomatoes. The main course will be meatless meat parmesan, and dessert will be non-existent. All wasted food will go to the crocodiles in the city zoo. Cocktails are being served beginning at 4:15 PM. Please bring your own napkins since we are on a very tight budget.
I am looking forward to your distinguished presence as together we solve the economic crisis currently taking place on earth.
P.S. Kiss my ass.

Oprah is coming. There won't be a morsel left. She brings her own doggie bags.

The role model. Our poor children.

Seriously, I always want to leave the planet but especially in the last years when every time I stand in line to check out my meager food items, Oprah is staring me in the face with the latest count on her poundage.

Don't people wonder? While they get their nourishment they are reminded of how fattening life is. Where money is being exchanged. Fear of food. Couldn't they paste her head permanently on another body and leave us alone? It's a cut and paste world now. It's absolutely insane. I have no hopes at all of this country working out her food suffering. Some sort of basic rejection of life at work there. We need real soul food.

I need a good wine to go with that.

Hmmm. I really need the wine.

So from now on all banks etc will again lie about the real value of their assets. The management will show 'significant judgment' to boost the profit and loss statements and to increase its bonuses. The books will again show inflated values and all numbers derived from that will essentially be fake.

"Over in London, at the G-20 Summit, the Anglo-Saxon bankers of Britain and America got their way entirely, as far as refusing any global regulation.

Both Gordon Brown and Barack Obama flatly refused calls by the French, Germans, and other European leaders for international regulations -- and regulators -- that could reach into all nations to hold financial firms to common global standards."

Must be the food they ate.

Oh sorry, I just now found the invitation to the G1 so missed the cocktails. Lovely setting. I was out delivering fresh from my oven cinnamon rolls. A trade for some free, free!!! advertising for my open studio next weekend.

Times are hard but circumstances have made others think about what they have/can exchange.

Yesterday was fascinating, I sat across from a bright young fellow and we talked strategies for our artist community's longevity. It's serious now as egos are getting leveled. Politics is giving way to cooperation. It is the most heartening thing I've seen in years.
