Haven't updated in simply ages. Been getting emails from LJ that they're going to purge some of my inactive communities. *sigh* So I'm thinking I should either post in them, or do them the favor of doing it first. A kind of LJ-Seppuku, perhaps. Life's been interesting. So much to say, so little energy to say it at the moment.

I've been finding my niche again back home in the Fresno area. Working on some new short & long term life goals, after careful consideration.

Crying isn't always a response to negative-seeming situations.
Sometimes emotional levels get so intense that there's nothing else you can do.

It's a release.

Lots of people are moved to tears by generally positive things like weddings, new-born babies, kindness, art, nature & *ahem* orgasms.

And sometimes you cry after something that falls in a relatively neutral (but leaning toward positive) area. 
Like after late-night, deep conversations with a friend you've had for 13 years.

Because there's nothing else you can do.

It's a release.

Here's the problem. Too many companies don't want want to pay Americans living wages, health benefits, etc. They don't want us to have vacations or time off for family duties. Or maybe they don't want to let farm workers have proper water & bathroom breaks. Their answer is to ship jobs overseas or hire illegal immigrants, because they are the closest thing we have to slave labor. Get the companies to clean up their acts & we will start seeing some jobs again. And we won't have to worry about our spinach making us sick.

Champagne cupcake success! This is an excellent recipe & I recommend it if you're in the mood for baking some decadent & semi-expensive goodies. Or if you're really trying to impress someone.

Amusingly, the Brut Rose I used was actually made by Cupcake Vinyards (got it @ World Market).
