slacker scratching entry


the weekend continued to be very busy... I think I recap in in the next entry (chronologically) that was actually written on Sunday night at work, so I'll wait to see before doing that here, after all, technically, this entry you are reading is being uploaded almost a week after the date at the top, in RealTime I mean... you remember RealTime right?...

well, in RealTime I am enjoying a wonderful eggplant rollatini pizza, though it took two tries to get it right, but I'll tell you about that in today's entry, or tomorrows, since I already uploaded an entry for today... yeah, you figure out which is where is what and how...

hint: it's the King Kong entry...

yeah, I don't want to make your life too challenging as I try all the tricks I know to convince you to check out all the entries I upload in a single day and not just the last one that appears as the current entry... I don't mind if you know my secrets cuz I know I can trust you to never tell anyone...

I found one of the links I wanted to include with my Happy Birthday wishes last month... ah, if I was only organized I might even be timely with my considerate nature...

some time in the last week or two I found myself at passion.com (yeah, I sometimes click on SPAM emails) and wanted to wrote a note to someone listed there and found I needed to register just to leave a note so I registered and this is who I am there:

I appear here by accident, a click of a link while doing something much more interesting (reading about people in their own words)... I am not interested in random sex with strangers, but friends are very welcome... visit me at candoor.net if you want to know more... or just ask J

traits I am looking for:

honesty, openness, innocence (an intent to do no harm, not ignorance), curiosity, intensity, creativity, irreverence, seriousness, sensitivity, intelligence, energetic, a sense of wonder and excitement about everything, love of words and music and experiencing the senses, deep respect for the body, more interested in the person inside...

I forgot my password already so I'd have to search for the email to find it if I ever wanted to go back, but there's a bit more information, redundant as it may be for many of you, about me...

and now, words from our Mystery Guest Genius:

Jinx caught the belly roll
"The big birds going down!"
A shot of whiskey, Jennifer?
She'll make a hellish sound
Sudden eruption
A smoke trail deduction
the big birds going down
Flamingos pass the petting zoo
This belly roll's on you!
Captain grab the water hose
Jennifer's getting hot.
She's petting flamingos fancy
Is she faking or is she not?
A fire births the ashes
All blackened in the trees
Happy in this crashing bird
Passenger #3.

yeah, amazing if you understand, perhaps puzzling if you don't but genius, nonetheless... someday you all might know the identity of our resident MGG, but for now, just basque in the wonder of the product of the mind dubbed Mystery Guest Genius...

and now, MGG is not John Lennon, but I've decided to share some great quotes I found that happen to be words John Lennon spoke or wrote at one time or another (I am trying to remember where I found them, I believe over at a myspace or maybe LiveJournal site... in any case, someone who respects John and had great pictures and I enjoyed muchly...

if I find a link I'll credit her (I believe she was a her), but for now, in memory of losing him 25 years ago this week, I give you John's words:

"Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue with that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first - rock and roll or Christianity." - John Lennon

"All we are saying is give peace a chance."- John Lennon

"As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot." - John Lennon

"If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliche that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that's his problem. Love and peace are eternal." - John Lennon

"Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans." - John Lennon

"Music is everybody's possession. It's only publishers who think that people own it." - John Lennon

"When you're drowning, you don't say 'I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,' you just scream." - John Lennon

"You have to be a bastard to make it, and that's a fact. And the Beatles are the biggest bastards on earth." - John Lennon

"I'm not interested in being hip." - John Lennon

"Everything is clearer when you're in love. - John Lennon

"I don't believe in killing whatever the reason!" - John Lennon

I would so like everything to be clearer, ya know... and I so agree with John in so many of the things he's said and done and stood for, which is one reason I include his words in my daily life diary so I can remember them in my daily life...

and here, more quotes, just because I love you and don't mind repeating myself (and I still don't recall where I found these, but I love the mind of the person who put them together on their page):

Humor is the only test of gravity, and gravity of humor; for a subject which will not bear raillery is suspicious, and a jest which will not bear serious examination is false wit. - Aristotle

And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. - Kahlil Gibran, "The Garden of the Prophet."

Treading the soil of the moon, palpating its pebbles, tasting the panic and splendor of the event, feeling in the pit of one's stomach the separation from terra ... these form the most romantic sensation an explorer has ever known ... this is the only thing I can say about the matter. The utilitarian results do not interest me. - Vladimir Nabokov, quoted in The New York Times, July 21, 1969.

To absent friends, lost loves, old Gods, and the Season of Mists. And may each and every one of us always give the Devil his due. -Neil Gaiman, "Season of Mists."

We do not see things as they are - we see them as we are. - Anais Nin (or The Talmud?)

The autumn leaves are falling like rain.
Although my neighbors are all barbarians,
And you, you are a thousand miles away,
There are always two cups at my table.
- T'ang Dynasty poem

Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle, and quick to anger. - J.R.R. Tolkien

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and good with ketchup. - Anonymous

The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that's the essense of inhumanity. - George Bernard Shaw
.
Mans mind, stretched to a new idea, never goes back to its original dimensions. Oliver Wendell Holmes

The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cant read them. Mark Twain

I went searching for my ideals outside of myself. I discovered that its not what the world holds for you. Its what you bring to it. The dreams dearest to my heart are right here. Anne Shirley, Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery

and speaking of poetry, this next quote comes from my kind of poetry site:

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. But if you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, you would produce enough gas to create the energy of an atomic bomb.

So, to all of you who have on occasion been accused of "talking out of your ass", consider yourselves VINDICATED. ~ Rogue Scholars

still, I wonder about the intensity and quality of the farts they tested because, as we all know, farts differ dramatically in volume and content... I would guess that for some people, an atomic blast can be achieved in substantially less time than 6 years and 9 months, while others could fart for their entire lifetime and not get near nuclear...

kind of like peppers...

meanwhile, in another part of my head, I am still thinking about doing this thing, but I'm still too lazy...

what was it Ellen Degeneres said?...

"Procratinate now, don't put it off!"...

or something like that...

yes, but at least I am not stupid... from the murderer's helpful handbook, #14: when trying to get rid of the body, do not ride around on a motorcycle with the body strapped to your back, especially not during daylight hours...

ok, so I've scratched out the entry that wasn't while distraction myself with football onm TV and some delicious Italian food and browsing browsing browsing, the latter creating the following statistic:

# of browser crashes during this entry: 3

sucks, dudnit?... this computer averages between one and 2 each entry and more when I spend hours browsing while creating an entry... we've had 8 browser crashes today, but only three complete freezes requiring reboot (which still takes twenty minutes because I have not figured out how to stop the computer from rebuilding the entire dat files every reboot)...

yup, sucks...

the good news is the computer but the irreverence and information and good thoughts somehow make it through (and enter your head, I hope, cuz that's why I'm here... I could be anywhere, after all... but I am here, with you)... like Dan Fogelberg said, some kind of message comes through...

there's always hope...
