I might be kinda back...?...

I might be kinda back. I'm not sure.
I miss it and I've been skulking around
looking at some of the old blog pals.
For someone who is compulsive and impulsive
it's compelling and appealing.

checking out of blog hotel

I'm out!
You will not be seeing comments from me
on your blogs.
You will not be seeing posts on this blog anymore.
Before I go I would like to say some stuff
to some of you.

Thanks for getting me into this.
It's been a gas! I've enjoyed people I "met".

I wish I would have been able to keep this going
long enough to meet you. I doubt I ever will.
I would still like to see the beautiful beaches of Malaysia.

Nancy Dancehall,
I hope you have success getting your health back.
You are a fine writer and I WILL look for your new book
on the bookshelves.

Some day I hope that America will not be a place
that drives away people like you.

Lisa Boredhousewife,
You fucking rock! I don't think there is a chance that
you will fail at anything you do. As I said to the boy yesterday,
"That was not a failure, it was an attempt." There is a reason
that you have such a loyal following. I was loyal and remain so.

Thank you all for your friendship, words, ideas, fun,
and large hearts.

bleer bog

It is about time for some new bloggery.
I'm getting sick of looking at the last one.
Even though I have had a good run of comments.
So, what should this be about?
Well, I am on my third beer...
wait a sec...I gotta go open that thing
so I won't be lyin' to ya.
I'm sorry baby for lyin' to ya!! I'll never do it again.
I swear!
Also, I gotta pee...
If I hold off it might give this whole thing
that edgy kind of feel to it.
I know I'm feeling kind of edgy.
It is kind of like
when you have to pee and you head to the bathroom...
suddenly you have to pee much more than you did
before you headed down the hall.
That was how I was feeling at the beginning of the last sentence.
I had some bad luck in the bathroom.
Now, before you run away
it won't be that bad.
It wasn't my fault. I didn't know when I started this post
that it would have so much bodily function in it.
What happened in the bathroom was that I had to plunge.
It is the daughter's fault.
She's got some prize winning stuff.
If there was a category at the county fair,
let's just say, "She could compete with some of the livestock."
Hey! This is not a bad thing.
It is not an insult.
It just IS what it is.
I think I am through with that topic for now.
We may need to return at a later date.
I doubt it.
So, what the hell are you doing tonight?
I mean, you are checking out other people's blogs
I really appreciate you stopping by.
Try to leave a comment if you can figure out how.
As I said in one of my earleist posts,
I tried to leave a comment on the blog of a friend
and ended up launching the "start your own blog" sequence.
It wasn't exactly like accidentally pushing the "launch" button
on the space shuttle or anything
but after I got it started I thought "why not?"
Now, here I am at 10:30 at night
typing dialogue to hypothetical readers.
Hey, I know you are not hypothetical.
But you were when I typed this.
How does it feel to make the transition from hypothetical
to real?
Does the name "Pinocchio" ring a bell?
Well, I hope if your nose grows,
you put it to good use (if you know what I mean)
To be honest, that was the first sexual inuendo
of this whole post.
In you endo...
That was the second.
It seemed only right to end on
a sexual remark.
Thanks for stopping by.
If you made it this far,
you are sincerely and deeply
one of my favorite people.

The Satan School of Dance and Needlepoint

Well Well Well Who's evil now?
Sorry! I don't believe in good and evil.
B ut this was fun!
Thanks Zijin!

You Are 20% Evil

You are good. So good, that you make evil people squirm.
Just remember, you may need to turn to the dark side to get what you want!

Now this is more like it.
If I seem to contradict myself
it's because I don't have to
be right about things.
Do you?

You Are 76% Open Minded

You are so open minded that your brain may have fallen out!
Well, not really. But you may be confused on where you stand.
You don't have a judgemental bone in your body, and you're very accepting.
You enjoy the best of every life philosophy, even if you sometimes contradict yourself.

1 blog w/ everything and a chocolate shake

Ok, here is the 2nd installment of the audio blog.
In my opinion I obviously have
a long way to go in my audio blog style.
But hey, who doesn't?
So, I will keep trying.
I have been thinking a lot lately about
how I will solve the blog vs sleep
It seems like the audio blog will help.
It is not the answer.
I must push myself to improve my writing
of blog posts.
I have succumb to pressure lately.
I have taken a break.
I have rested up
and here is my plan:
I will check other blogs during the week.
I will post my own stuff on the weekends.
I might post more than one.
If I post during the week
it will be something I have written during the day
when I am quasi lucid.
Blogger friends are having adventures, health scares,
disapperances and who knows what else.
What the hell is going on?
Is the blogging world deconstructing?
It is evolving...
and I am a witness.
I see the evolution of blogging as a
method of connecting and communicating with
"like minded" people where ever they are.
I find myself to be like I am!
here's my voice\I/
PS that's Pepper above.
The dogbane of my existence

Hey! That's Me!

Hear is my first audio post
(Yes, I know I spelled "here" wrong)
Hope I don't disappoint.
I can't wait until they get "Feel-o-blog"!!

whine and cheese (and corn?)

It's time for a little fun.
I've been whining for some time now.
I'm gettin' tired o' that.
Today I had to give a presentation
about having a healthy heart
to some young adults
with developmental challenges.
OK, let's all say it together "developmental challenges"
It's the pc term.
Some people have problems with
pc ways of saying things.
I say, "being pc is a way of describing something
in a more creative way.
It is a way of offering to someone
some dignity regarding whatever challenge they may be facing.
Therefore we might, instead of calling someone
a bigot, call them
sensitivity challenged.
Yeah but who needs to be sensitive?
That's for women and wimps.
Until suddenly...
it is you or your loved one.
Well why wait?
go ahead and be sensitive now.
It won't hurt!
You won't start to have a period or something.
You might just turn into Barry White
and women will be drawn to your sexiness
like cats to catnip.
"But wait!" you say.
"What if the insensitive
I mean sensitity challenged person IS a woman?"
It's all a show.
Misplaced toughness...
sensitivity confusion...
one of those underwires poking...
boyfriend sucks...
girlfriend sucks...
I say strip em down and drop em off
at the mall.
after all the pointing, laughing
and angry epithets
they will remember how it feels to be vulnerable.
Anyway, the people at the presentation
were very lively and surprisingly
well informed.
It was a lot of fun. I was able to just
shoot from the hip
and draw a few things on the big giant sticky notes.
I love the giant sticky notes.
They're so absurdly big.
I want to write someones phone number and "call me" on one
then sneak into a friends house a leave it on the fridge.
After the presentation I got to have a late lunch.
Late lunch is kinda cool because all the other lunchers
aren't clogging the restaurants
and grocery aisles.
Also, everybody at the office is working and I'm
taking a nap in my car
(which is really a little Toyota truck).
I have this uncanny ability to take a nap
and decide before the nap when I want to wake up.
It almost never fails.
I have only overslept 2 times in 14 years.
I like a short nap.
How about you?
About 15 minutes is perfect.
I feel rested but not groggy.
I'm feeling kind of groggy right now.
So I'll see you tomorrow.
