Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

02/08/2005: Andy Warhol...I'm ready for my close up.

Today's Daily Herald printed the follow-up article, "Mom on Strike," about my Responsiblity Month experiment. The article, by Pam Defiglio, one of the feature writers in the Arlington Heights branch, captures the "essence" of this project. (Too bad the site link fails to provide the accompanying pictures...so, you'll just have to "imagine" how "interesting and photogenic" we all are here at my house.)

But, it's a very nice article and pictures...she did a good job, very complimentary. There are cute pictures of Lauren cooking Pasta Alfreado, Cory looking on, Lindsey (the list maker) filling out her charts...me, looking like a mup...and our dirty, disheveled basement...that camel's back. (I may post a few picures of my own about this stuff later...so check back if you care...)

My first 15 minutes of local fame...LOL (Andy Warhol...I'm waiting for my "close up.")

(as an Aside: That's not to say I didn't seriously consider going to stay at a 5-Star Hotel for the entire Month...but then WHO would have loved-up and looked after all my creatures all day...and Sami, my Furkid, needs lots of attention. I am the "leader of the pack" around here. Nope, my plan was WAY better...and more sucessful in the long term.)
