Mara And Trucking

Mara stunned me this morning. She told me that she had sent a list of trucking companies for me to call. She’s apparently decided to go back to driving. She told me last night that if were to ask her to go back to driving, she would be willing to do it. But she’s said… Continue reading Mara And Trucking

The Lunatics Run The Asylum

How odd it seems to be scanning the news and find that Right-Wing propaganda has been published by Yahoo! News. Now, perhaps I’m a bit behind the times, but I was of the opinion that news sources such as Yahoo! and Google News are in the habit of posting links to other news sources, but… Continue reading The Lunatics Run The Asylum

The Phony War Against the Critics

I just came across an excellent article on The Washington Post web site. Essentially the article addresses the Bush Administration’s bizarre and frightening campaign to label anyone who disagrees with President Bush as someone who is un-American, potentially treasonous, and aiding and abetting terrorists. I quote; “One might also argue,” Vice President Cheney said in… Continue reading The Phony War Against the Critics

Dark Drain On The Soul

I’m depressed. I was in a fairly good mood. Then Mara came home. Within a few minutes I found myself sitting in the dark in the computer room, just wishing I could close my eyes and go away. Being around Mara is like a dark drain on the soul. I’m so tired of it. She’s… Continue reading Dark Drain On The Soul

Funny thought while playing EQ2. Apparently it was too subtle for the morning crowd in OOC chat, but I want to remember it so that I can run it by Mara this evening. “There can be only one. May it be Gavin McLeod.”

The Last Samurai

I just watched the movie The Last Samurai. It’s left me deeply affected, and I can’t really tell you why. Well, I suspect it has a lot to do with the ideals of honor and purpose. Once upon a time such things meant a lot to me. I suppose the movie simply hit a lot… Continue reading The Last Samurai

Frustrated By Epes

Just came back into the house. I moved some junk to the road and had done some more organizing in the storage building. I’m not making very good progress in my bid to finish cleaning up the house. For one thing, I keep waiting until late to get started, so I’m running out of daylight… Continue reading Frustrated By Epes

The Hip-Hop Movement

I heard a phrase today that annoyed me. I’ve heard it lots of times before. I imagine by being annoyed by this phrase, most of you will brand me a racist. The phrase is “the hip-hop movement.” Why does this annoy me? Well, quite simply, it annoys me because the most popular artists who make… Continue reading The Hip-Hop Movement

The Assholes Of Ne Plus Ultra

Mara’s Everquest II guild, Old World Guardians, just had a run-in with another guild, Ne Plus Ultra (also known as NPU). The latter are a bunch of worthless Assholes. I’m not into the whole guild vs. guild thing, but I have to say that these guys have earned the capital A in Assholes. In the… Continue reading The Assholes Of Ne Plus Ultra
