Where have I been for 3 years!? Dec. 2nd, 2010 @ 10:11 pm
If anyone still remembers me I'm back. I've added my FaceBook link. I became a teacher have two daughters and a happy marriage. I brew beer and dabble in a ton of hobbies as always. It's hard to sum up 3 years at one go, so I guess I'll essentially be starting fresh. Most of the people I knew don't seem to be members anymore anyways and I'm sure my stock value has dropped due to absenteeism, I don't blame anyone.

Hello again none the less.

If you know me, have ever met me more than once, asked me for advice on how to improve yourself or brushed bibliophiliac topics you know how much I admire Kurt Vonnegut. Somehow in the mix of life I got left out of the whole, "by the way your favorite author died" circle. As of April 21st or so Vonnegut is up in heaven, or so I sincerely hope with Isaac Asimov. He promised he was an atheist, a humanist. I hope that was a private little joke.

I can't watch Fox anymore, here's the youtube link that will explain why.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnAaDEFk7Uk.

I'm kind of depressed right now but I'll of course go on. I just feel bad not having known sooner.

Womyn's ProblemsCollapse ). This has got to be the biggest Whiskey Tango Foxtrot I've ever run into.
I'm going to have another daughter in November. I'm trying very hard to remind everybody her name will be 'Aolani despite my fiancee's reservation...she's going to be loopy from epidural's anyways. I've also signed my first teaching contract and become much more involved in youth ministries.

Much Longer Update Jun. 5th, 2007 @ 12:00 am
I haven't updated b/c not really too much has happened except that:
I finally got a beard to grow
My little angel turned 4
I'm getting married again
I'm going to have another child (see above)
I quit my regular job to get experience as a permanent sub for two months
I'm unemployed for the first time in 8 years. (see above)
I've had absolutely no time for stand up
I've switched entirely to Linux (Kubuntu 7.04 64bit)


I'm sorry ladies and gentlemen. I assume you've all kept alive without me, I feel I've lost something not keeping up with you all. Ask all the questions of me can, and if you would, give the quick down of how you've been.

» Religious Affiliations
In Texas, as I'm sure many areas in America I often hear scoffed the mocking, condescending, "Muslims, the religion of peace" as if Muslims have cornered the market on shameful, brutal, and terroristic acts. All the followers of Islam I've ever met trump 90% of the Christians or Jews I've met.

Hitler was a die hard Christian, claim that bedfellow.

Huey: Ahem. In this time of war against Osama bin Laden and the oppressive Taliban regime, we are thankful that OUR leader isn't the spoiled son of a powerful politician from a wealthy oil family who is supported by religious fundamentalists, operates through clandestine organizations, has no respect for the democratic electoral process, bombs innocents, and uses war to deny people their civil liberties. Amen.

Scotland is putting forth legislation to cut down on knife crime. Living in Texas I laughed to no end. We have legislation that cuts down on knife crime and a whole lot of others kinds of crimes too, the one that lets us all carry concealed hand guns. If a would be robber who needs money and probably can't afford a gun has a knife in his pocket but suspects you have a gun in yours...no crime. If he suprises you, takes your wallet, runs and you gun him down...no crime.

Xi Feng has learned to swim but only the torpedo stroke. Entirely underwater and only one way. If you don't help her out she'll drown.

A friend of mine told me last week he was "gettin' lucky" that night. An EPT test told him it was bad luck.

I did a strange thing today. In my hand I held a $100 bill, a $5 bill, and a large utility bill. I was at the grocery store looking at a largefamily checking out, their meager collectings being bagged, and a secretly panicing woman arguing about the validity of some coupons.

When I looked at the little green spending squares in my hand and back at the scene the joke of it all hit me. I almost sobbed. What the hell kind of world do we live in? I walked outside and saw a 20 something guy in in a double extened cab ford truck that gleamed like a diamond. Why does he get all those allocated resources for? It's just a show piece.

I pick up my modest '66 Beetle today, I fell good driving it, I feel Right. The transportation is provides it vital to my families way of life and I use it so sparingly. I pick up walkers that I know.

Other state facts and statistics.

Corrections and observations of some of those facts:
Of note: George W. Bush is NOT a Texan. Texas' policy for politics is that they do as little as possible (One six week congressional meeting every two years) and stay the hell out of everyone's life. His incompetence made him a natural, that he should ever be the president was a joke nobody else got.

Texas was not "admitted" to the U.S., the two NATIONS were joined by treaty.

Any state not bordering Texas is considered a Yankee State.

Yes we have 3 State Mammals and a lot of "State" other things. When you're this great it's hard to be humble.

In Hollywood the movie stars may drive million dollar cars to show off. We drive multi-million dollar combines just six weeks a year...we're not impressed.

No matter how famous you are, pee on a monument and you're ass is out of here.

We're the friendship state. It's different than Southern Hospitality. We're also the state that supports concealed hand guns and have the most people lined up for death row...don't push the friendship thing too far. The road signs at the border says "Welcome to Texas". The next sign says, "Don't Mess With Texas".
