Talk amongst yourselves

I have to apologize for disappearing on you this summer. There's been so much I should've been writing about! But here are a few topics I'll throw out to discuss amongst yourselves:

Britney Spears: Bad Mom or just Plain Crazy?

Paris Hilton: Apparently her recent jail time has made her re-evaluate her life. Word on the street is she wants to devote herself to charity work and to getting into David Beckham's soccer shorts. Um, yeah. I don't think Becks needs charity, Paris, but thanks for the offer!

Okay, okay, so that's all I've got at the moment. But, I promise I'll be back for more.

In the meantime, for those of you in or near Chicago, I'll be signing books along with Stacey Ballis and Laura Caldwell at Team Blonde in Forest Park tomorrow night from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. I believe their will be beads and such on sale, as well as books. It's supposed to be one fab girly night. For more info, check out:

Watkinson, said to her, Mamma, please to whip me. This presentation is frequently a reversed one, the beginning of the dream being the deduction, and its end the hypothesis.. The elder was gently forcing the girl back to her place.. He'll lose his wind! Mr.. Hargraves has captured his public. You know what I mean, she said.. He helped her gallantly to a chair, on which she seated herself sideways, somewhat ceremoniously, with her eyes following the point of her parasol as she traced a pattern on the carpet.. But this secondary interpretation of the dream had been effected only under the influence of the developed anxiety.. As long as he moved at all, he was satisfied.. Through this free transferability of the intensities, moreover, and in the service of condensation, intermediary presentations --compromises, as it were--are formed ( cf.. It was therefore not remarkable that the courthouse three weeks later was crowded with an excited multitude of the curious and sympathizing.. What mule, Hannah? The mule you rode to town. , the assumption of which is forced upon us by the dream, that we have to recognize and honor as the guardian of our psychic health.. He arose and shouted: Whoa, Balaam! Again he seized the nearest weapon, and sought satisfaction.. My young mother and my young grandmother are very distinct figures in my memory, ministering to the old gentleman, wrapped in his dressing-gown, and seated upon the piazza.. The analysis of obscure and intricate dreams discloses something very similar; the dream scene again pictures as realized some desire which regularly proceeds from the dream ideas, but the picture is unrecognizable, and is only cleared up in the analysis.. He was got out at last, half coaxed, half hustled; and the gentle public only half understanding what had been set forth thus unexpectedly, made quite a pretty row of it.. To illustrate by a comical example how one wearing the blinders of medical mythology may miss the understanding of such cases I will relate a case which I found in a thesis on pavor nocturnus by Debacker , 1881.. As I ran at full speed, with my nose up in the atmosphere, and intent only upon the purloiner of my property, I suddenly perceived that my feet rested no longer upon terra firma ; the fact is, I had thrown myself over a precipice, and should inevitably have been dashed to pieces but for my good fortune in grasping the end of a long guide-rope, which depended from a passing balloon.. Then a sickle was lying on the board; next a scythe was added; and, finally, he beheld the likeness of an old peasant mowing the grass in front of the boy's distant parental home...
