For a long time now I have been completely enamorate of Nouvelle Vague. Their sound really takes me places. From covers to originals, they have a unique sound that really does it for me, makes me want to get all dressed up, sing, dance, and fly a little bit. I ran across them on MySpace and had to fan them right away when I did.
Today, I have been napping. Oh, sure, I may have woken up from a dream, that I could turn into a novel,by two children smacking my head to resolve a fight and two other coming in to argue so that I could chose which one was in the right (and thus my favorite - a game I did not play by the way), but no matter. Today I did promice to think about myself. And this fits the mood.

A fellow writer responded to my latest poem on HubPages, "never deny me honesty". I'd not run across him before and so decided to click on his profile pic to see what types of things he wrote (his comment was right on the mark, which captured my interest right away).
Much to my surprise, or perhaps not so much, the first article I clicked into was a poem. The premise? What if each of us were a page in a book. The alliteration was so fantastic and I was so struck by the thought of his words, that I had to share.
So if you get a chance, do go read this wonderful poem and come back and let me know what you think of the idea. His hub is called Let Us Be a Book.

I'm thinking today of all the kinds of breathing, the sounds, the emotions, the temperatures, that come from breathing.
There's calm breathing. Breathing in the ocean wind. Breathing in the big Montana air. Heated breathing. Breathing to cool yourself. Breathing to calm yourself. Breathing after a moment of passion.
Here are some videos I came across. perhaps one will catch YOUR breath.
Got any breathe videos to share? Share them in the comments. We'd love to hear what you come up with.

And, it was clean.
The salesman at Sears tried to sell me something else, anything else, "This one has these talents. This one is younger..." but I refused. I stayed loyal and true; I got a replica, one just like my friend's, with matching dryer. They were on sale to boot, so you can image my pleasure when the adoption came through and I got to bring them home.
I knew I'd made the right choice. Never a problem. In fact, when the time came for a checkup, the maintenance man was shocked at how healthy my Washer and Dryer were. Dryer was in especially good shape. It was noticeable that I am one of those people who scrub the dryer filter clean after each load. There would be no fires started in my baby. No sir.
Now you would think, reading this, that there are no issues to be had with such perfect appliances and such a perfect caretaker. But, I'm sorry...
CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW IN THE HECK A WASHING MACHINE CAN GET DIRTY INSIDE THE RIM WHEN IT'S WHOLE PURPOSE IS TO CLEAN THINGS AND THE LID IS NEVER LEFT OPEN?!!!!!

I hope this works, it's the first time I'm using my link to this option.
Okay, so , you may or may not remember my issue with the Prince of Nigeria. And Mr. Ban Ki-moon's apologies. FRIEDA BABBLEY: Mr. Ban Ki-moon sends his apologies and a nice compensation package.
Well, in the comments section of Mr. Ban Ki-moon, Jama Genie shares that she's previously won a British lottery. I reply that I have not been so lucky as to have won that lottery at all (let alone any lottery).
But what should I find in my mailbox recently?
I AM A WINNER!
Check it out:

On one of my hubs on hubpages, I noticed that some of the traffic came from Hootsuite. Curious, I cliked in to check it out.
It's a twitter suite and it is awesome!
I use tweet deck. I've found it limited, but at least I culd retweet, something I really like to do as I follow some wonderful people who find or make the coolest articles, photos, and info. But I like categories! I love categories! It's one of the reasons why I love computers so much.
HootSuite lets you categorize. Boy does it let you categorize. Groups. Keywords. Etc. It also lets you check stats for your tweets, retweets; either individually or as a whole, or by groups.
Have a blog or blogs? It'll tweet for you.
Have multiple accts? View them all at once if you like. Tweet from more than one at a time if you like.
Want or need multiple editors? This is possible too.
Anyway, I thought I'd let you guys check out the video they provide. I'll include a link to HootSuite at the end.
Now I haven't tried it myself yet, I thought I'd post this blog post first, but I'm on my way to do so now!
