Taking the Blue Pill

Morpheus: This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cypher: I know what you're thinking, 'cause right now I'm thinking the same thing. Actually, I've been thinking it ever since I got here: Why oh why didn't I take the BLUE pill?


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------



So, I've been sick with a stomach virus for about 5 days now and apparently, I've lost my mind some place. The quotes from above are from one of my all time favorite movies, The Matrix. Keanu Reeves is pure sex on a stick in that movie. :D


I posted these quotes, because while I am an ardent, nay fanatical, believer in taking the red pill (ie: opening my eyes to Truth), when it comes to my stitching, I've wholly embraced the blue pill and all of its subsequent effects (ie, sticking my head in the sand. How's that sand tasting?! :D)

Anyway, this is as far as I have gotten on CCN's 'Ice Cream Shoppe':








I apologize for it being so out of focus, but as bad as I feel, I really didn't feel like dicking around with trying to get a better shot. :/


In other news, it seems the entertainment industry is taking it on the chin with two deaths yesterday, that of Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson. What I find utterly amazing is that there are utter and complete morons out there arguing as to whose death is more important. Say WHAT?! IDK about anyone else, but I find this incredibly disrespectful to both of them. They both lived, they both made mistakes, they both died and now we who are left behind will suffer the loss of them gone. Both of their families are in incredible pain right now, so the least the rest of us can do is be respectful and mind our collective manners.


Hopefully, I will not be so cranky tomorrow. :/
