my acupuncturist told me I was having a boy today...he can tell by taking your wrist pulse, he felt my right pulse which was the "yin" (girl), and then he felt the left pulse, "yon" i think it was called, definitely not "yang" though (boy), and he said the left was stronger...everyone actually has been telling me I'm having a boy, my mom has had a feeling since beginning that it's a boy, I have had a feeling, just from my very mild symptoms, i did complain alot, but i really attribute the exageration of my symptoms to the progesterone I had to take...and my older cousin, who prides herself on being a bit psychic, also says it's a boy...It will be funny though if it turns out to be a girl. I am happy with either...tonight i would tear up everytime i thought of my little boy...it has all felt so surreal till now, and sort of knowing the sex, has just sent me over the moon.

I also told him about my anger outburst at Whole Foods the other day, and he told me that was nothing, his partner, while pregnant, actually followed a woman all the way into the post office, because the woman cut her off in parking lot and took up two parking spaces, she got out of her car (with her preg belly) and followed the woman into p.o. and told her off in colorful language, he said it was a huge scene, where they almost fought, hearing that was shocking cause my acupuncturist and his partner are the most soft spoken/zen people you could meet...
I was like no!!! you mean I'm not a monster after all? (pfft)

the session was an hour, but always feels too short, this time it took me longer than usual to settle my brain down, and i was just started to relax and float in this buzzing half asleep state, when it was time to wake up and leave...
he told me he'd get back to me on what he's heard about the swine flu vaccine, and if I should really get it or not.

I left, and ate some snacks as I drove to Anthropologie on 4th St., there was only one display I sort of liked, which i snapped a pic of...I bought one little thing also, this rhinestoned dresser/drawer knob. The cashier said to come back in two weeks because there would really be some gorgeous new fall store displays, so I will probably trek back there. I do think the Berkeley store has more interesting & better displays than the SF one for sure.

from left to right - the moose i'm still beading, much renewed respect for Huitchotls, cause it's boring and takes forever...
the one in middle (double headed wolf), will be a piece called "amores perros", the wolves will be left as is, and i'm planning to do some heavy beading on the plaque itself, including one of those ribbons held by doves, w/wording..."amores perros" maybe? (in beading, not painted)
the last object is a china unicorn head i found today at a second hand shop here in town, for $2.50...I plan to hang it in my yard somewhere...

on another note, i finally got my painting from MermaidLagoon (Etsy), this after i filed complaint w/Etsy & Paypal, i'm still annoyed though cause she overcharged me on shipping ($10), on the envelope it only cost $4 and some change, so i guess she pocketed the rest...bitch

i want to buy some carnvirous plants for my kitchen window

i've been sick as hell these last few days, coughing, congested, runny nose.....yesterday, i worked at library in morning, after i did some errands, including going to the Bone Room, they had so much new stuff for the holidays, a few things i got were a giant scorpion paperweight, a framed insect-eating bat, a couple of small insects in lucite?, a cougar head cast, a cow fish w/antennae preserved in a jar, some mounted beetles (in blue, green & purple jewel colors) to hang in my bedroom, these mounted horns (forget what kind of animal), i saw other stuff but alot of it cost too much....
one neat thing they had were these actual spider webs preserved in this black tile (either oval or square), and on back it had pic of the type of spider that spun it...it was beautiful, but of course $$$$...:(

today i did errands in morn, then mom came over, helped me measure to hang some curtains, cleaned house a bit, then went to mass in the evening at St. Liz, they put up their altar for the upcoming feast of la Virgen de Guadalupe, it's beautiful; giant papermache rocks, and buckets of various (real) cactuses, i think they are still gonna add tons of roses everywhere (probly last minute) i want to take a pic....we bought tamales after church
i also bought mom this set of green turquoise jewelry from the home shopping network, we watched today, so that takes care of her for x-mas...

this vendor -

was truly the only good thing i saw at this years Dia de Muertos fest in Oakland...i bought this beautiful necklace called "Nevermore" it had a cool crow/raven dangling at the end of it, and in black and purple chameleonish colored beads...

that fest has seriously gone downhill, it used to be more of a mix of people (different races), and unusual art, altars, and ecclectic crafts, no more :(
it's like a giant dirty San Jose flea mart or something...with tons of people who don't know how to walk, like burros at the feria or something, hella bumpin in to you....i hate to be so negative about it, cause i live for this holiday, think about it all year round', but um no...that shit sucked...and they had too many commercial type booths, like cell phones, real estate, that crap....
