The FIfth Dawn decklist just went up a couple days ago, and I still can't believe this card made it to print. I so want one. Or four.

I was informed this morning that Wes Arthur, former pastor at St. MAtthew's United Methodist Church in Fairfax suffered a heart attack last week. He's doing ok now, but they had to put a couple of stints in his heart.
It's just kinda nerve-racking. I know he'll be fine, but I mean, I grew up with this guy preaching every week. He preached on a Calvin and Hobbes strip, for crying out loud. He's a great guy, it's just kinda hard to believe, I guess. Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated.

Folk-tale wolves seem to have an identity crisis. They're always dressing up like sheep or old women.

THis made me think of somebody. Try and guess who you are?


I'm working on gospel time these days
(The summer - this could be the cool part of the summer)
The sloe-eyed creature in the reckless room she's so severe
A wise child walks right out of here
I'm so excited I can barely cope
I'm sizzling like an isotope
I'm on fire so cut me some slack

First she's way gone then she comes back
She's all business then she's ready to play
She's almost gothic in a natural way

This house of desire is built foursquare
(The city - the cleanest kitten in the city)
When she speaks it's like the slickest song I ever heard
I'm hanging on her every word
As if I'm not already blazed enough
She hits me with the cryptic stuff
That's her style - to jerk me around

First she's all feel then she cools down
She's pure science with a splash of black cat
She's almost gothic and I like it like that

This dark place so thrilling and new
It's kind of like the opposite of an aerial view
Unless I'm totally wrong
I hear her rap and brother it's strong

I'm pretty sure that what she's telling me is mostly lies
But I just stand there hypnotized
I'll just have to make it work somehow
I'm in the amen corner now
It's called love - I spell L -U- V

First she's all buzz then she's noise-free
She's bubbling over then there's nothing to say
She's almost gothic in a natural way

She's old school then she's like young
Little Eva meets the Bleecker Street brat
She's almost gothic but it's better than that

-Steely Dan, from their album Two Against Nature

Happy Birthday, Ade!

Go buy something fruity. At the liquor store, I mean.

See? Life can get worse!
well, I just spent, like, 8 hours talking to Jess online. I'd say that's a good use of my time, wouldn't you?

What I did today

Mow the lawn.
Buy a new TV (finally!)
Set up same
BUt a new power supply to replace the burning one in my parents' computer.
Install the same
All-in-all I'd say it's been quite a day for getting things done.

just added a poem I wrote to poetry page. It's the first one at the top. It's based on a dream I had last night.

A waste of my time; cool!

+Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says.

", I knew both Clive and Ramsey, so I told Allan 'come on down, I'll look after..."

+Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?

nothing, actually. It's a large empty space.

+What is the last thing you watched on TV?

um... "Jason and the Argonauts" I think

+WITHOUT LOOKING, guess what the time is.


+Now look at the clock; what is the actual time?

man, I'm good.

+With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?

cicadas, my mother sweeping the deck.

+When did you last step outside? What were you doing?

um.. to go to my cousin's graduation, I think

+Before you came to this website, what did you look at?


+What are you wearing?

darkblue enim shorts, my "art is one of the few things left worth doing" shirt, white socks... watch, my comntacts... the wristband Ade knitted for me (thanks Ade!)... um..dark red boxers... a belt... I thin k that's it.

+Did you dream last night?

Probably. But I can't remember what about, exactly (inexactly, I think it had something to do with toast)

+When did you last laugh?

Probably when I was having this conversation:
quash me baby (11:10:25 PM): i didn't realize i was volunteering to be eaten in quite that way
ManThing83 (11:11:35 PM): well, no.. you're too cute for eating.
ManThing83 (11:12:01 PM): cannibalistically, I mean
quash me baby (11:12:08 PM): hahaha
quash me baby (11:12:10 PM): so many levels
ManThing83 (11:13:16 PM): yup
quash me baby (11:13:33 PM): eat me ;-)
ManThing83 (11:14:00 PM): well, if you insist... don't have to ask me twice
quash me baby (11:14:49 PM): :-P
ManThing83 (11:14:55 PM):
quash me baby (11:15:04 PM): hahahaha
quash me baby (11:15:06 PM): so kinky
It's funnier in context, I swear!

shelves, mosttly, with lots and lots of books. Yay!

+Seen anything weird lately?

I'm hardly the best person to interpret what is and isn't "weird"

It's kinda stupid, but it's wasted a good 20 minutes of my time, so it's OK

+What is the last film you saw?

See #3

+If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?

only millions? Probably buy my college education first, then put a bunch into my savings account where it'll earn interest for me. Then buy a new car, and a modest apartment.

+Tell us something about you that we don't know.

Well, since I don't know who's gonna rerad this, how can I determine what qualifies?

+If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?

hmm... fewer people, more animals.

+Do you like to dance?

DOes the crazy White Boy Dance count?

+Would you ever consider living abroad?

Mad Human Disease

Its refferred to as CJDand can be transmitted by eating brains

My Pirate name is:

Dread Pirate Flint

Like the famous Dread Pirate Roberts, you have a keen head for how to make a profit. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

Machines are like people: if you hit them hard enough, they do what you want. But if you hit them too hard, they break.
just got back from the optometrist. My eyes apparently haven't changed significantly enough to prompt a change of prescription. Woo-hoo!
