The Question of The Moment

The question of the moment is what to do about this joint here. Been keeping it going because it is similar to Tara of Gone With the Wind fame. It is where I got my start and where I learned the ropes but it is not home in the same way any more. It is a place filled with mist and memories and fragments of other stuff. So I have to decide whether it is time to shut the doors or if there is a different way of doing things. Have to decide what purpose this serves and then adjust things because there is only so much time in the day and I can't spread myself any thinner.

Give The Lady What She Needs

I am tempted to tell the story of how to give the lady what she needs as opposed to what she says she wants. That is what happens when you engage the irrational and illogical by providing a mirror so that they can see how silly they are.

What Are You Looking For

The lack of punctuation in the headline is intentional. It could be a question or it could be a statement. Are you searching for something or someone that you have yet to find/meet or are you stuck in the past. Maybe you are somewhere in between trying to figure out how to unlock potential that has yet to be given a chance to show itself. If there is anything to be learned from the past it is that almost every personal challenge we face today is old news that others have been through before. Doesn't necessarily make it any easier but it lends some perspective. Maybe Danny Zuko and Sandy figure it out in real life and maybe they don't. Of course if they had nothing but clear skies to walk through there wouldn't be opportunities for songs like "Hopelessly Devoted To You" and others like "You're The One That I Want" wouldn't have the same ring to them now would they. ;) Ain't life just a motherfucker.

If You Survived Cleveland This Might Be For You

All that time dodging the flames of the burning river might have given you a particular skill set that makes you especially suited for wandering through the swamps in search of giant snakes to play with . And just in case you aren't certain you can always take a short online course to bone up on how to properly wrap your hands around one of these suckers . Sure, it is not the same sort of snake you are used to handling but what harm could come from wrestling with a muscle that is bigger, thicker, longer and just as dumb as the others from your childhood.

When Your Words Have No Meaning

Sometimes I rebel against the tyranny of instant gratification and the need to write the "perfect headline" by making up ridiculous headlines that are over the top and or gibberish. It would be fair to say I am willing to press the limits such as the time I wrote about sleeping with a nun or why sex with twins is best. It is a risk doing this because those who skim through my posts often miss the deeper meaning, assuming that there is one. It is a risk because you never get a second chance to make a first impression and some people run from the more "risque" remarks. It makes me miss the old days a little bit because back then I didn't worry one whit about whether an off the cuff remark would offend or upset. I suppose it raises all sorts of questions in my head. How Honest Are You In Your Posts? Sometimes I wonder about how honest people are in their posts and not just because I have been known to share some fiction and or engage in hyperb

Enough of the Holiday Season

I am about done with holiday music and ridiculous comments about what this holiday season should be about. We live in the richest country in the world and yet I keep running into the homeless and hungry. Our farmers produce more than enough food to feed everyone but it doesn't get distributed to those who need it most. Somewhere a useful idiot will explain to me why I am wrong and how I don't understand the way the world works. I may remain silent and ignore their attempt to educate me or I may unleash a verbal torrent upon them that they won't soon forget. I may overwhelm them with facts and information that they cannot ignore because I can't stomach their lack of compassion masked behind some silly sophomoric rant about socialism or some other such thing. Sometimes I wonder what they would say if they were in a situation in which they couldn't feed their families or what they would do if they ended up on the street. I wonder if they would talk about how
