A change

As of today the web tv is gone. I'm attempting to hook up an old comp but not sure it will work. The Web Tv was just useless. Yes I could read and sometimes send e-mail. But I couldn't post blogs, do anything on e-bay, or IM. For the money I was spending it just didn't make sense. So for now I'm dependent on others comp till I see if the old one can still work. So be patient if it takes me a while to blog or respond to others blogs. I'm still here, just going a bit slower.


This is my 129 post on this Blog. And I would just like to say:
Just because everyday is better with monkey.

More Pratchett

You can work out how much energy a Kangaroo uses when it makes a jump, Count how many jumps it makes in a day, and deduce a lower limit on it's daily energy requirements... Do the sums, and you find that the Kangaroo's daily energy requirements is about TEN TIMES as big as anything it can get from it's food. Conclusion: kangaroos can't jump. Since they can't jump they can't find food so they're all dead.
Strangely Australia is positively teeming with kangaroos, who fortunatly can't do physics.
--Science of Discworld.

In fact, no gods anywhere play chess. They prefer simple, vicious games, where you Do Not Achieve Transcendence but Go Straight to Oblivion; a key to the understanding of all religion is that a god's idea of amusement is Snakes and Ladders with greased rungs.
--Wyrd Sisters

That seems to point up a significant difference between Europeans and Americans. A European says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with me?" An American says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with him?"
--Terry Pratchett

William wondered why he always dislike people who said "no offence meant". Maybe it was because they found it easier to say "no offence meant" than actually refrain from giving offence.
--The Truth

"...and then I'm gonna get medieval on his arse."
There were more pressing problems, but this one intrigued Mr. Pin."How, exactly?" he said.
"I thought maybe a maypole," said Mr. Tulip reflectively. "An' then a display of country dancing, land tillage under a three-field system, several plagues, and, if my ----ing hand ain't too tired, the invention of the ----ing horse collar."
--The Truth

All he knew was that you couldn't hope to try for the big stuff, like world peace and happiness, but you might just about be able to achieve some tiny deed that'd make the world, in a small way, a better place.Like shooting someone.
--The Fifth Elephant

One of the most basic rules of survival on any planet is never to upset someone wearing black leather.
--The Last Continent

One of the universal rules of happiness is: always be wary of any helpful item that weighs less than its operating manual.

Yvonne Kiley passed away yesterday morning. She was an Aunt of mine who lived in Canada. She was married to my mothers cousin, my Uncle Philip. He was leaving for work and went back in to give her a kiss goodbye and realized she wasn't beathing. Her daughter, my Cousin, Colleen is getting married next year. She wanted her mom to help her plan it. Phil and Yvonne were hosting X-mas this year for themselves, Colleen and her Fiance, Phil's Mom and Dad (my Uncle Dick and Aunt Vi) and my Grandmother.
Yvonne was a good woman. She was outspoken but kind. She was always there if you needed her, and was quick to help with anything. She had a great sense of humor. She was much loved and will be missed.

I've been going nuts buying gifts this year. I've spent an insane amount of money (which I don't entirly have) to try and get something for eveyobe I can. I think part of this insane buying spree is my attempt to keep my mind off of her not being here this year. I love giving gifts and so in a desperate move to keep myself from the depression I can feel lurking behind my mind I'm putting myself way into debt. I keep rationalizing what good is money if I get depressed so I might as well go broke but at least be able to smile, even if that smile is partly a lie I'm telling to myself. Will it work? I don't know. But I'm hoping. I miss her so much, so instaed of thinking about ti I'll try and concentrate on those who are here in my life. Why do we notice missing pieces more than the filled parts?

Weekend madness

What a crazy weekend. One of my friends mom had a stroke so I went to visit her in the hospital. She's going to be ok, which is good. It was hard seeing her there almost helpless, she was always such a strong willed women. We haven't always gotten along, and she is in some way responsible for one of my relationships ending, but she's changed alot over the years and it hurt a part of my heart to see her like that. I send all my love to her and her family.
I also house sat for BM and family. I don't know how they sleep with that hyperactive dog of thiers around. He wants to be in the bed with you and will whine in the hall till you let him in. He's a toy daschound (I think) and gets cold so he'll crawl under the blanket. Then about an hour later he gets hot and crawls out. An hour after he's going back in... you get the idea. Of course he walks all over you everytime he moves. Thier cat also slept in the bed, but after petting him for about 5 min he just settles in and is happy and unmoving for the rest of the night. Of course thier other cat takes this time to run all over ythe house like she's insane. Ah hell, who am I kidding I love spending time with the pets now that I have none of my own. I miss Iggy though (thier black cat of doom).
I also had to fit in the last of my shopping (have I mentioned I hate holiday shopping. Not the buying or looking, just the damn crowds). I also helped a cousin of mine move a few pieces of furniture. Fit in work and gift wrapping (till 3am) and that was my weekend. I need a vacation.

Arrogant Worms "I Am Cow'

I am Com
Hear me Moo
I weigh twice as much as you
And I look good on the BBQ
Yougert, Curd, Cream cheese and Butters
Made with liquid from my udder
I am Cow I am Cow
Hear me Moo

I am Cow
I eat grass
Methane gas come out my ass
And out my muzzle when I belch
Oh the ozone layer is thinner
From the outcome of my dinner
I am Cow I am Cow
I have gas

I am Cow
Here I stand
Far and wide across this land
And I am living everywhere
From B.C. to Newfoundland*
You can squeeze my teats by hand
I am Cow I am Cow I am Cow
I am Cow I am Cow I am Cow

*B.C refers to the Canadian Provence (Similar to our States) of British Columbia wich is north of California. Newfoundland is North of Maine.


I hate X-mas shopping! I love giving presents, but I hate going to busy malls or stores. I think I'm done (except something for BM's wife). I also hate spending my day off at a mall then having to go to work at one for the rest of the week. I have had enogh of malls for a lifetime. But all I have left is the wrapping and putting stamps on the card.

"oh the weather outside......

Christmas Miracle

I got the $900 I was owed by my old work today. I now have plenty of money to finish X-mas shopping. It almost makes me want to believe.

A year later...

Last year at this time she was in my life, in my heart, and in my arms.
Now I don't even know exactly where she is and I don't know if I'll ever hear from her again.
I think I need a drink.
Or two.
Or more....

Thoughts on Magic

I was reading another blog this afternoon and it got me thinking. It was about why Santa may be the longest running unfunny joke in the world. The author (as he pointed out) wasn't being serious but he got me looking at stuff in my slightly off center way. I gave him a huge answer about it, which had little or nothing to do with his blog. Sorry about that.
But what I started thinking about is there is precious little magic left in this world. More and more as the years go on there seems to be less and less to believe in. As I grow older all the things that were once consdered possible have turned out to be false. Santa, Easter bunny, Tooth Fairy, ect., all have been show as lies by adults to children. Then there are questionable things that some people believe in like Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, Yeti, UFO's, ect. There are also things that many believe in with no real proof to back them up like God, Satan, ghosts, ect. Yet without these things we are left alone in this world with no magic. Our imagination clings to the idea that there is more to this world than what we see in our daily lives. Without that hope then this world seems dark and dull. If science has answered it all then there is nothing left to see.
We are slowly killing all the wonder and hope. What will we do once it's gone?

A word from our sponsor

Tv New York's channel 55 showing of The Santa Claus was sponsered by Preperation H.


23 days, 2 paychecks, and I'm only half done with shopping. Holiday stress sucks. I hate being broke. I hate being paid every 2 weeks. Grrrrr....
I still have several people to buy for, Including 3 of my 4 nephews/nieces. Some I still don't know what the hell to get. I hate people who say they either don't know what they want or don't want anything. Just make more stress for me right? Your telling me there's nothing you could use? I don't care if it's something little, like a t-shirt or a knife set or a GC to the movies. But for god's sake come up with some ideas or I'm going to get you something from my imagination and if you don't like it tough. I'm going to spend the money so at least give me a chance to spend it on something you like.
As for myself, I've been telling everyone what I'd like are some nice Pictures of everyone. I don't care if thier professionally done, hell take one on a digital camera of you and your significate other/family and print it out. It's not that hard. If you can spare the cash put it in a frame, they're really cheap at CVS, but if not then just give it to me and I'll get a frame for it. Simple enough. Hell, one of my friends doesn't like his picture taken, so every year he prints out a picture of a nude girl and sends that to me. I don't care. I know most of my friends are either broke or hard up for cash so I don't expect alot from them. A simple card is enough, or maybe a visit and a hug. Or a phone call, I'm easy going about it.
Hope everyone's doing good so far this season. Let's see if I can manage not to get depressed.
