Plans: hope for the best…
AM Prayer: Friday, we pray to the glorious siblings, Walburga Frouwa/Freyja and Ing Fro/Freyr, and lighting a gold candle (for Freyja’s tears and Freyr’s golden boar, Gullinbursti).
Walburga Frouwa/Freyja, who could not love you? Women as their own inner glory and highest attainment as the self-made woman, men for your beauty, passion and strength. Praise to you for the gift of life, and for the love that makes life worth living. Remind us always that it is the strong who love the best and the most, and that only the mighty can truly be gentle. Fill our lives with passion and lust that we may live our lives to the fullest. HAIL WALBURGA FROUWA/FREYJA!!
Ing Fro/Freyr, you are the god of “Ar”, the good harvest and prosperity: you are indeed the lusty enlarger of life. When the day to day wears us down, remind us of pleasures and joys. Help us recall the wonderful excesses that brought our lives into being and which sustain the human spirit during good times and bad. Without you, there would be no life and certainly little delight. Thank you, Ing Fro/Freyr, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. ING FRO/FREYR, HAIL!!
NOTE: Not a great way to start the day: Audie and I get into it first thing this morning and still no sign of my unemployment check.
Note 2: Ever since Audie told me some time back that she could lie to my face and I would never know it, I just have a terribly hard time believing anything she says. It’s amazing how this sic gay-boy is well enough to come to the front door and well enough to agree to take her to an afternoon appointment. I still think I am being played for a fool.
Note 3: What Audie doesn’t realize is that my life might very well be in crisis until I find out whether or not my unemployment will continue, but, life is all about her. Her last words to me as I dropped her off at her therapy appointment were: “Drop dead!”
Note 4: Got thru to the unemployment people (luckily I didn’t have to wait all that long). It seems that everything will be okay soon enough. With all this going on this morning I went ahead and worked on some resumes I have on KANSASWORKS.com\ while saving the updates on my computer; that is, since I lost them all when my computer crashed. Luckily they are available at KANSASWORKS.com
Note 5: It’s been a busy morning, huh?

Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
I have been in the process of revisiting my knowledge of the Runes. You may or may not notice subtle differences on my interpretations of them.
I watched some Aussie Rules Rugby on ESPN3.com. Never having seen it I was quite fascinated by it and difference that exists between it and standard/regular Rugby; so much so I plan on watching much more of it…or any other Rugby for that matter.
Off on campus to print up more stuff for the semester and visit just a bit with my advisor; I felt he needed to know what I’ve been going thru on the semester break.
Off to the dealership for an oil change; hey, it was my freebie so I got it done now before the semester starts.
Still no word from the Work Force Alliance concerning my voucher so I can buy books.
PLEASE don’t tell me I’m going to start getting prank phone calls: JEEZ!
The Bundesliga kicks off their fall season http://www.bundesliga.de/en/ and I plan on watching it on ESPN3.com http://espn.go.com/espn3/index 1:25PM local time
FC Bayern Mü nchen 2:1 VfL Wolfsburg (EXCELLENT!)
Look at how the Mü nich players stay on the pitch and celebrate their win with their fans! Cool!
At first I didn’t think I would like not having an announcer for the match, but it was fine. There didn’t seem to be much of an announcer at the stadium, either. Without it, though, I could hear EVERY sound on the pitch! Perhaps it’s one of those German ways; no announcer in the stadium so no announcer in the media. Nonetheless, it was SO good to be able to watch the Bundesliga again! THANK YOU ESPN3.com!
Called Frithy in NJ…it’s always nice talking to her!
So far my case worker with the Work Force Alliance still has nothing to tell me about my voucher for books and scrubs. I can’t get them myself and have them pay me back later because it doesn’t work that way. If I buy them it’s on me and there are no paybacks from them. So…unless something happen…just heard from my case worker and no voucher now but should be in there later Monday. No books the first day…how embarrassing.
Ya know, I have thought quite a bit about today’s Rune and IF it could pertain directly to me or if it’s more an enlightenment about Audie. I’m sure if one were to ask her what she felt about it she would say it was all me, but I assure you I make every effort to maintain an even keel. She keeps trying to make me out the heavy in all this but I refuse to accept that. I simply cannot continue to invest in something that, IMnotsoHO, won’t give me a good return on that investment.
A bit of Rune study…
PM Prayer: Heimdall:
HEAR ME HEIMO/HEIMDALL, the genetic link between gods and humankind. Your keen eyes and sharp ears guard the world of the gods. As you stand so alert for the approach of giants, remind us that we must also watch for our own encroaching evil. Let weakness, cowardice, lies and dishonor be barred from the Rainbow Bridge leading to our heart’s abode. Be a model for vigilance, that we may rise to the best that is in us, and someday join the Noble Gods in their shining home. HAIL HEIMO/HEIMDALL!!
PM Rune: none
