A Few Words

I am tempted to share the unfiltered thoughts running through my head but it is more fun to hint at it and not because the firm of Spaner, Schlatter and Ripper are under my employ. So as you dance through the sea of junkies, hicks from Arkansas and ignorance here are things to read or not read. Got to say this old blog is doing a tremendous job of driving traffic, not too shabby. Maybe it is not old and broken.

Fragments Of a Tale

She said we were only friends and that I shouldn't expect anything more to come from it but I didn't know whether to believe her or not. You can blame my confusion upon our having slept together on a number of different occasions. The first time it happened was a surprise to both of us or so I had thought. Conversation with a dear friend of the fairer sex suggested that there might have been more planning involved than I knew. "We know within moments of meeting you whether you might have the right stuff to end up in our beds. But there are a million different things that can make or break that for you." I laughed and told her I thought the million different things was the biggest crock I have ever heard of but admitted I had learned to be relatively silent. "Silence can be your friend. You don't want to be too quiet because that can wreck your chances, but too much talking can kill it for you too. There was a guy in my physics class I was really hot

Free Writing

People ask me to tell them the story behind my story because they want to know about the tale behind my tales but I refuse to tell. Don't ask the magician to share their secret because when you do the mystery of the magic is removed and you lose something more special than you can imagine. It doesn't really matter much because ultimately I refuse to say more than I have and share more than you have seen. There are limits to what I will reveal and I simply won't bend. Those few who find their way into the inner circle may learn more but even then it is questionable. Some of it is because experience has taught me to keep my own counsel for I won't betray myself as others have done. Trust is a commodity and I am cautious with mine.

The Stories I Don't Tell

The stories I don't tell/share here are often far more interesting than what I do write about here, but there are boundaries in blogging. And some boundaries simply aren't broken. While I may not fear to cross some lines there are others that remain untouchable because some things will always remain off limits. What you see isn't always what you get.

Wrestling with code- that is what I have been doing for about 5 minutes now. That is because I screwed something up, but I don't have time to stick around here. Unfortunately there are other things that are more important than making this look exactly as I want and wish it to. With some luck that won't prevent you from taking time to read through. There are some older posts here that were fun to look at. Some of the comments made me snort, reminded me of promises made and promises broken. Life is nothing but interesting.

Going After What I Want

This isn't a real post. It is a short break from the work that I do to pay the bills. This is just me clearing my head so I can finish something else. And that leads me to somewhere else, a thought about finishing something else. It is what I am doing now. I am finishing something else that will lead to the next place. Transition. I am in transition and I am excited and nervous, but in a good way. The train has left the station and the engine is chugging down the line, there is no turning back and I wouldn't have it any other way. Read this once or read it twice- the end result is the same thing. I am going after what I want.
