Ordinary Astrology...

"Those phone solicitors love to call toward the end of the week. Don't get caught on the phone answering too many questions. Be polite but firm and tell them you're not interested. "

- astrology.com -

It's kinda' fun to read my daily astrology clips from astrology.com. No, I don't take it seriously....just an "uuu" and "aaa"once in a while...mostly it brings a chuckle or two. What I read just a while ago however made me give out a longer "uuuuuu".....

Just the other day I got two calls from "solicitors." Both calls masked themselves as freebies for me and for my hubby. Like...."your name was picked out among thousands to avail of our free insurance coverage etc. etc."...Then they speak along without giving me a chance to butt in... asking for all sorts of personal info. I was polite and firm in denying to answer questions.

"Nothing is for free", I uttered to my eldest son who was beside me when I got the call. "Never make the mistake of doling out info about me or your dad,"I proceeded to tell him.

And so when I read my scope for the day..".uuuuu..I wonder how the stars knew"

It's a nice pretty day today...I have the birds outside singing, my dowgie beside me and a sprinkling of peace. I have to get ready......just a few errands then back here to work....I am going to make this weekend peaceful...relaxing...calm...maybe visit my favorite bookstore...

Oh' and not to forget..plants...I need a few pots of plants....

I'm not in the habit of reading my horoscope. After all, I never get the great love or opportunities that they promise. On the bright side, however, their dire forecasts don't come true either.

Kate, I picture you as a true Scorpio. You wouldn't have happened to have been born early, would you?

It's a sign form the heavens asking you to go out find telemarketers, drag them into the open, and then brutally "finish" them.

X. Dell said...

Oh, and a belated Happy Birthday.

I'm a Gemini... But don't read my stars. If we all have a pre-planned destiny, I'd rather not know what is coming up! I have felt Mr Reaper's breath upon my neck more than once, and would rather it be a surprise next time!

HLiza said...

I never bother what the horoscopes say too..The phone solicitors are one of the few jobs that I really admire! Do they really get people responding to them?
