Welcome to flight 113

Posted by Cammie Sinor on 1/06/2013 02:44:00 PM in

Good afternoon ladies & gentleman, & welcome to transcontinental congressional airlines flight 113.  We have mixed & variable weather for our flight today, with both blue & red skies ahead.  We will be limping along at just a few feet above sea level, keeping our ears close to the ground.

You'll get to see many sights on our journey... The looming fiscal cliffs, valleys of despair, looming climate change (no, it's not a myth, your science steward will assist you in spotting it).  Behind you, you will see, stretching over the plains of history, the most amazing rainbow.  It is composed of your constituents, who are red & blue, but also ebony, ivory, mahogany & jasper, & pink, yellow, purple, green.  It is made up, in fact, of every color, creed, value & philosophy you can imagine... The term melting pot has been used to describe this amazing conglomeration... You may have forgotten.  It is comprised of hope & heroism, strength, ambition, energy, ideas & ideals. 

At this point, I would like to remind you, that the privilege of being on this flight is brought to you solely at the forbearance of this varied people, and that we insist that this flight be in no way diverted or delayed.  The seatbelt sign will be taken off, just as soon as the partisan bickering stops, and you all stop posturing in front of the media.  Once you all get to work, we can, in fact, reach cruising altitude.  Until then, do not leave your seats for any reason.

For each mile of your journey, do ask yourself if you are a part of the problem or a part of the solution.  Are you bringing options & solutions to the table?  Or are you bringing only obstacles & demands?  Are you willing to compromise, if needed, even your passions, if in the end it serves the greater good? 

Ladies & gentlemen, are you spending even one moment thinking about your reelection, political future, or media image?  If so, please disembark, now.  There is no shame in resigning, and you will not be needed on this flight.  Feel free to write a book, become a commentator, have a reality TV show, or even start your own business... there are plenty of other flights available. 

This flight is limited in seating, and only has room for thoughtful, intelligent, reasonable leaders, who are looking toward the future, & looking out for the Entire nation, not just the voters that elected them.  We hope that you enjoy a highly productive journey.  See you on the ground.

How We Operate

Posted by Cammie Sinor on 8/03/2011 07:52:00 PM
Calm down
And get straight
It's not our eyes
It's how we operate

You're true
You are
I'd apologize but it won't go very far

Please come here
Come right on over
And when we collide we'll see what gets left over

A little joy
A little sorrow
And a little pride so we won't have to borrow
Wherever you lead, I'll follow

Turn me inside out and upside down
And try to see things my way
Turn a new page, tear the old one out
And I'll try to see things your way

Please come here
Please come on over
There is no line that you can't step right over
Without you well I'm left hollow
So can we decide to try a little joy tomorrow
'Cos baby tonight I'll follow

Turn me inside out and upside down
And try to see things my way
Turn a new page, tear the old one out
And I'll try to see things your way

The way that we've been speaking now
I swear that we'd be friends, I swear
'Cos all these little deals go down with
Little consequences, we share, we share

Turn me inside out and upside down
And try to see things my way
Turn a new page, tear the old one out
And I'll try to see things your way

And I'm gonna love you anyway
Try to see things your way
Try to see things your way
Try to see things your way

Reindeer Pellets

Posted by Cammie Sinor on 12/15/2010 10:33:00 PM

Reindeer Pellets



Preparation:  20-40 minutes


Serves: Depends on how hungry you are.  Makes 2 to 3 dozen


Ingredients:


  • 14 oz jar creamy peanut butter 

  • 14 oz powdered sugar
  • 8-10 oz. Nestle Semi Sweet morsels 
Directions:
  1. Sift powdered sugar so there are no little snowballs
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix equal parts (more or less) peanut butter and sugar until you have a dough like mixture.
  3. Roll into little balls and place on wax paper
  4. Melt chocolate chips in something wide enough to roll your little balls around in.  Easiest method?  1 minute in the microwave, then 10-30 seconds at a time until consistency is thin enough to roll a ball around in. 
  5. Cover the ball in chocolate.  I use a spoon to kinda flick it around.  Dipping, pouring, and submerging all have less desirable effects.  The spoon is handy because boiling hot chocolate isnt pleasant on either tongues or fingers.  I'm just saying.

Other stuff you'll want to have around: 

  • Mixing bowl

  • Big spoon to mix

  • Smaller spoon to dip

  • wax paper

  • something to melt chocolate in, i.e. pot, pan, ceramic bowl, nuclear reactor.
Things I dont recommend using:

  • Plastic bowl or spoon for chocolate

  • Metal in the microwave

  • The aforementioned nuclear reactor
Variations:

  • Crunchy is not as smooth, but gives more of a corn kernel effect.

  • Dusting the reindeer pellets with powdered sugar gives them a proper, festive, snowy apppearance.

Maturity

Posted by Cammie Sinor on 2/09/2010 08:44:00 PM
The moment of maturity in any adult's life, is when they recognize that the governmental and social systems they were raised to believe in, are in fact, fantasies, pure fairy tales.

This time itself is painful, fraught with disappointment and disillusionment.

And yet, there is the potential to come through to the other side, far freer than one has ever been. One recognizes the crutch of society as the obstacle it is, and becomes free to make choices, based, not on expectation and fear, but on what one truly believes in.
