Go Vote

Ok, they have this website where they are having contests between popular TV/Comic/Movie charectors. I urge you all to go vote for your favorites, just for the fun of it. I do however request that if you go-VOTE for the JOKER! He just rules. Also, anyone that picks Buffy(from the TV show) over Ash( from the Evil Dead movies) needs a serious head check.

Just some quotes

Ok, enough of the depressed stuff, it's time for fun with quotes:

Myths, not least of all Jurassic Park itself, have suggested that dinosaurs are not really exctinct at all. Significantly no one has made a film bringing back Dodo's, Moa's, Pigmy Elephants, or Mosasaurs-- only dinosaurs and Hitler are popular for the reawakening myth. Both at the same time would be a good trick.
Terry Pratchett

Marrige is when 2 people become joined to become one boring person.
Ardel O'Hanon

To be honest means that everything said must be true, not that everything true must be said.
Dr. Laura

I love the idea of giving in without a fight. I've fought for ten years and giving in without a fight is what I've always wanted to do.
Terry Pratchett

The only thing scientists admit is what they know. What they don't know-what might be, all the stuff in the realm of possible but unproven- they dismiss as myths.
Peter Benchley (RIP the writer of one of the best horrors ever-Jaws)

The world has no room for cowards. We must all be ready to toil, to suffer, to die. And yours in no less noble because no drum beats before you when you go out into your daily battlefields and no crowds shout about your coming when you return from your daily victories or defeats.
Robert Louis Stevenson

Herbert Spencer coined the phrase 'SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST' to describe evolution. The phrase had the advantage of convincing everybody that they understood what Darwin was saying, and it had the disadvantage of convincing everybody that they understood what Darwin was saying.
Terry Pratchett

I've wrestled with reality for 34 years and am glad to say that I finally won out over it.
Elwood P. Dowd

Parting is all we know of heaven and all we need of hell.
Kathrine Paterson

Beside the big worry was that if the Allies didn't get nuclear fission working soon the Germans might beat them to it. Given the chance of our blowing up the world or the enemy blowing up the world, it was obvious what to do.
That is, on reflection, not a happy sentence.
Terry Pratchett

"We shall come together again" said Lancelot trying to consol him.
"Some of us" said the King. "but it shall not be the same; never the same again... We shall have served our purpose; made a shinning time between the Dark and the Dark. Merlin said that it would be as though all things drew onto the golden glory of the sunset. But then it will all be over."
Lancelot said "We shall have made such a blaze that men will remember us on the other side of the Dark."
Rosemary Sutcliff

It's not that I'm afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
Woody Allen

To a scientist a Thought experiment is an argument that you can run through in your head, after which you understand whats going on so well there's no need to do a real experiment, which of course is great in saving time and money and prevents you from getting embarassing inconvenient results.
Terry Pratchett

Lastly (for now):

And I'm up while dawn is breaking
Even though my heart is aching
I should be drinking a toast to absent friends
Instead of these comedians
Elvis Costello

Damn the Broccoli, Damn You, and Damn the Wright Brothers!

2006 and things

I didn't get the managers position that I was going for. I do have a job that starts in mid-March but it's not great pay and I am hoping to find something else before that time.
My Mom has written my Uncle an e-mail saying that she isn't willing to sell our cottage. I have a feeling this is the start of a family fued thats going to get ugly. My Uncle has a tendency to have a temper and my Mom normally hates to argue, but she's putting her foot down and now we await the reply.
My Lil Sis is moving again. They have to be out of thier current place by March 1st. Which means despite my bad back I'll be moving funrniture again.
My friend Kells Bells has come down with Fiber Mongolia (yeah I know thats not how it's spelled but since I can't seem to say it right why should I spell it right.).
So far this year isn't exactly off to a shinning start.

On good news I went to see Isis and Ant. We got to sit and talk for quite a while and Ant cooked dinner. It was good, which is saying alot since she made pork and I don't normally like pork. But she stuffed it and covered the whole thing in garlic. It was so nice to get to spend time with them.
I'm also doing good at Dragon Quest 8. Normally I'm not a big video game player but I've found that when I'm playing I'm not thinking about stressful things so I've been spending quite a few nights over my Cuz's house in front of the game. It's beats getting drunk like I did the other night, much less expensive. Anyways my days of heavy alchohol are past me know, I just can't do it.
I've been looking through photos to see what I should put up next but haven't made a decision. I'm not a big fan of picts of myself, (the one I used in my post 'Hello' is a rare exception) and I won't do picts of others without permission (hey Midget mind if I put one up of you?), and although at one point I was going to do shots of ex's I guess I can't quite bring myself to do that either. Maybe I'll do one of our cottage. I'll think about it later.
Hope everyone's doing good and I'll be on again soon.

So my Uncle is still pushing for his share of the money for our cottage in Canada, and since we don't have enough my parents are thinking of selling the house to help pay for it. They would look for a much smaller place in the area and use the money to pay off my Uncle. Which would also mean I'd have to find a place of my own.
Now as I've said before I'm currently with my parents because my Dad couldn't afford this place alone so I moved back in to help with the mortgage. But now, with me out of work and savings running low, I have no idea what I would do if they decide to sell. I always figured when my Dad got back on his feet I could save up for a bit and get my own place again, I just didn't figure I would possibly run out fo time so soon and when I was in such a bad state.
I have a second interview tom, and suddenly instead of being able to take my time and look for a good job I may have to take the first thing I can just to try and start to save up money again. This so sucks.
Hope everyone's doing great. I'll be on again later this week to check on you all.

Well I hope everyone had a great VD Day yesterday. Hope there was lots of crazy monkey sex going on. I had a nice relaxed day with my Babushka, just resting and going out to dinner at a nice cajun place we know. We exchanged gifts ( we had to so she could wear the jewelry I got her to the restaurant) and she got me the Wallace&Gromit movie, if you haven't seen it you should! She also got me a new clock and some pewter statues of the Lord of the Rings charecters. I didn't think about any of the stressful stuff that my life seems to be filling with these days. It was quaint. I love when life gets quaint. I wish life would be quaint more often.

I'm supposed to be going to my friend Isis's house next Wed so my Ant can make me dinner. She's been bragging to me about her own cooking for a while so I'm making her put up or shut up. It's kind of scary that the little girl I helped raise is in high school now and can cook full meals. Where have the years gone?

Thank you all for your charitable comments on my picture. It just goes to show your all as crazy as I thought you were. Except Midget who has seen the real thing enough to scream on sight now. Of course if I wanted to be mean I'd post a picture of him and I so everyone can see why I call him Midget, but I've sworn not to post pictures of others without permission. (unless of course they don't have a comp and won't know if I put a picture of them up, so don't be suprised if I put a picture of the Demon up one day.).

Ok, don't scream. This is a slightly older picture taken by Heaven a while back. I was lying on the floor with my head on the bed. I like it because due to the angle I don't look like I have seven chins. Actually, I've put on some wieght since this, about 50lbs or so. Ok, maybe 60. I ended up with the shot because one of the last times I went to Heavens house I saw it in the trash can. Not sure if she or her husband threw it out but I decided to keep it. Sorry about the line in the middle but it was bent in half. So heres looking at you all. Hopefully you all don't decide to stop coming now that you've seen me. Now I just have to figure out how to post this into my profile picture. It says I can't because it's not a Jpeg file. Any ideas on that? What I should do is find one from collage when I had the long hair and full beard, back when they called me Wookie.

Ok, enough about my ugly mug, the job search continues but it's slow going. I have sent my resume to one of my old companys that is looking for a manager. I also had an interview with a mens shoe company for the assistant manager position. Hopeing to hear back from one of them. Next comes the posting on,, and any other online job sites for CT that I can think of.
Have also been stoping by my Cuz's to play DragonQuest 8. Not usually a big video game player, I seem to enjoy watching others more than playing myself, but sometimes I find one that hooks me. Guess this is one of those. Only problem is we have a rule that whoever owns the game gets to finish first and my Cuz has been so busy latly that he hasn't gotten to play so both me and my other Cuz are twidling our thumbs going nuts because we have to wait for him every time we reach where he is.
I got to spend time with Grasshopper again which was nice. He's got a few problems right now that I wish I could help with, but sometimes we all must walk the path alone. Just so long as he knows I'm only a phone call away.
Everythings ready for this big snow storm they say were supposed to have. Still not sure, weathermen are so unpredictable you know, but if it hits I just hope we don't lose power. This comp maybe the only thing I'll have do do to aliviate bordom tom.
Ok, enough babaling. Hope you like the pic. Now that I know how I might post more. Of course I won't be posting any of my friends picts, stop worrying BM (he's terrified I'm going to post a good one of him so you can all see how cute he really is), unless they give me permission, but I might post some other ones of me or the black and white picts I've got. We'll see.

PS Three Olive Martini (see Mythos List at side) is doing a cancer walk for charity. Seeing as I have done the walk before due to losing my Nana and Grandpa to cancer as well as my Mom's ongoing fight with Breast Cancer I ask anyone who is interested to go to her site and use her paypal link to donate whatever you can. I'm not usually a big one for asking for money but if you can spare some please give. Thanks.

No Photos

Well, every time I try and do anything about putting a photo up on this blog I get a message saying that I can't do to an "unexplained" error.
I've tried the little photo button on the top of the post area, I've tried Blogbot, and I've tried Fliker. None of them work for me.
Maybe one day I'll get BM to stop by and help, but since he has an aversion to coming to my house I won't hold my breath.
If anyone else has any other suggestions I would apreciate them. I do also apreciate the ones already given, I just can't seem to make them work.
I so hate technology.

Mechanically inept

Ok folks, I need help once again. I now have a scanner, a HP Image viwer, but I can't figure out how to post pictures onto my blog. I've asked before and the answer I got was, but I was sure there was a way to do it straight to blogger. Any ideas?

Ok, I have come to have a problem with people keeping animals. Growing up I had several cats. I loved them all and have some nice memories of them. But one of the problems I have with them is that they don't last long enough. Average cat life is about 15 years, average dog life is maybe the same. Which means they live long enough for you to build up a bond with them, to feel like they're part of the family, and then they die. Having had to be the one who did the deed (take them on that last vet visit) every time because no one else in my family could bring themselves to do it, I don't want any more animals. I've known people who care for thier animals as if they were thier children. My Sis, Kells Bells, Jay (over at Jaysblog), have all had to suffer through the loss of a beloved pet (thats not everyone, just those I can think of on the spot) that they looked at as a true family member. I have spent nights sitting up with some of them while they cry thier eyes out. It's heartbreaking. This is why I don't want anymore, losing a loved one is bad enough, but to buy a creature that you KNOW will die before you is just painfull.
Then there are those who people call pets but thier not. I'm sorry but the word pet means you can PET THEM! Such animals as fish, hedgehogs, ect. can not be petted (Babushka's sister has a hedgehog and would argue that she pets it, yeah except she has to wear gloves when she does or her hands become pincusions! All they are are spikey rats!) . Also if the animal is too skittish or temperamental to let you hold it then it doesn't count either. All that is is caging an animal, not having a pet. With few exceptions the fact that if you hold a mouse in your hands too long it's heart can burst from fear means that you shouldn't have one!
Then there are those who keep snakes/spiders/lizards/ect. I've known several of these people and it's mostly for shock value. Perhaps after a couple of years they do become attached, it's human nature, at first it's more just so they can freak people out when they show them off (I know ther are exceptions, I'm generalizing here from quite a few people who I've known with them).
Is it a bad thing to have a pet? NO. they6 can be nice companions and are fun and funny and loving. But be careful, if you can't handle losing them then maybe your better off not having them at all.
Like me.

I hate job interviews. I have one Tom at 3. Having to dress up and kiss butt. I've just never been good at it. I am who I am, take me or leave me. But in the end you do what you have to. As I've always said, my bills don't care if I'm happy. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Wond'Ring Again

We wandered through quiet lands, felt the first breath of snow.
Searched for the last pigeon, slate grey I’ve been told.
Stumbled on a daffodil which she crushed in the rush,
heard it sigh,
And left it to die.

At once felt remorse and were touched by the loss of our own,
Held it’s poor broken head in her hands,
Dropped soft tears in the snow,

And it’s only the taking that makes you what you are

-Jethro Tull

It's dark here. The only light from this screen. It's quiet here. The only sound this keyboard. I feel so alone. Sleep escapes me. Dreams lost to the void. I wonder if maybe this is all just someone elses dream. I just need to find the right person and wake them up....

Some light

Turns out theres at least one good thing about being unemployed this week, I get to actually spend time visiting some friends.
One of my other family, Jiminey, is visiting from bOregon and is staying with his brother, Grasshopper. I haven't seen Jiminey in about 2 years, and although Grasshopper lives about 15 min away from me due to us both being so damn busy I haven't seen him for about that long too. I went over at about 7 last night and we sat and talked till 1 in the morning. It made me feel so much better because it was like we were all young again. All that was missing was my Bro (thier oldest brother who I met when I was 4) and it would have been a full flashback.
I also got to spend almost all yesterday with Babushka, as well as watching the movie Zombie with her and my Cuz, Gundumschlong. Zombie was a film released in Italy as the unofficial sequel to Dawn of the Dead. While it's not as good as George's other movies it is worth it just to see a zombie fight a shark.
I've also got to see Isis and Ant, something that doesn't get to happen anywhere near as often as it should. As well as getting to spend a little time with Midget, he and I have had a horrible time finding time to hang out latly, so it was nice to see him even if it was just for about an hour. Now we just have to pick a night to get together for dinner or something.
I will be going tom to see BM and family, which is always good as a way to make me smile, as well as seeing Do-nut Girl, my Cuz' adorable girlfriend who goes to the same collage as Babuska. He so needs to marry her.
Now yes all of this is slightly tainted because I'm worrying about finding work, but if I was woking I probably wouldn't have had time to see them all so I'm happy I did.

The job search continues. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
