High Weirdness / Giant squid stuff!
« on: October 11, 2011, 10:18:35 pm »
We have a serious problem with science journalism. A big one, in fact, and today that problem takes the form of a giant, prehistoric squid with tentacles so formidable that it has sucked the brains right out of staff writers’ heads.

Or Kill Me / Pleasing Lies
« on: October 10, 2011, 07:02:58 pm »

It is not the business of a Doktor to tell you pleasing lies.

I was told, just last night, that the response I made to a direct question dented someone's ego.  It was an honest answer...  It just wasn't the answer that would stroke his ego. 

Yeah, I'm all done with pretty lies.  I'm through with telling a man what he wants to hear, just to spare his fragile little feelings. 

It starts off with the little stuff.  "No, it's no problem."  "Really, sweetie, I don't mind."

The next thing you know, you've "I don't mind"ed yourself into doing shit that, a decade ago, you never imagined you'd tolerate.

No more.  Fuck that noise.

Guess what, boys?  I may not be ready for another relationship, just yet...  But I'm a hell of a lot closer than I've been in awhile, and maybe, just maybe, I'll look around a bit and window shop.  See if maybe the feet I've got under me will hold my weight. 

But, it's gonna be different, this time. 

I'm through changing my words, changing my SELF in order to fit around your lives.

I've got my own life.  I'm through breaking myself in places so I can fit around you.  I'll bend... but by all that's holy, I'm not going to be the only one who bends, this time.

I'm not going to be as easy to get along with as I used to be, maybe...  And I'm gonna do some damage, here and there.

But you know what?

I'm worth it.

Or Kill Me / The Man I Married
« on: October 05, 2011, 05:27:09 pm »
I want to tell you all about the man I married.

This guy... Where do you start? Loyalty. Honor. Those are, if anything, the things that run deepest in him. When he gives his word, he keeps it. When he sees a thing that should be done, he does it, not because he expects anything, but because it should be done.

Maybe he wasn't the most romantic guy on the planet, but he tried. He wasn't a sending flowers kind of guy... but he knew lilacs were my favorite, so, when we bought our home, the first piece of landscaping was putting in a lilac for me.

I don't need to be his whole world. Nobody needs that kind of pressure. But, having US be the center of both of our worlds, that works out just fine. WE come first, no matter what, that's all that really matters. We have room for ourselves, sure, but nothing that is for me, nothing that's for him, can mess up US. We support each other, he never tears me down, or makes me feel less than I am.

He's not perfect, but he's got my back.  He's my best friend, my love, and I hate the thought of living without him.

So, that's the man I married.

I hope I meet him, someday.

Or Kill Me / A few safety tips

Dear Public Transit Riders,

Look, we're all in the same situation.  For whatever reason, instead of driving, we're all cramming ourselves onto a bus to get wherever we're going.  How about we all agree on some simple rules, to make it suck less, and to keep me from bringing a machete along tomorrow, hm?

1.  If you have your children with you, control them.  I love kids, I do.  However, if you can't keep them in their seats without screaming at them so loud I can't hear my music through my headphones, you need to rethink SOMETHING.  If you fail even then, kindly walk.  Duct tape them down, if you must.  (Having that handy is useful for the volume issues, too.  Just sayin'.)

2.  For fuck's sake, shower.  Marinating in perfume or cologne does NOT count.

3.  The next time I stand, patiently waiting for the bus for 15 minutes, and you shove your ass into the air space I left between myself and the unshowered drunk standing on the curb, I WILL shove you both under the incoming bus.

4.  If I am reading, leave me the fuck alone.  I don't want to play "my kindle is cooler than your nook."  I don't want to discuss what I'm reading, or hear about what you read last, I want to read my book.

5.  Don't ask me for bus money.  Especially don't stand near me at the stop, step on in front of me, THEN realize you can't pay and expect me to cover you so I can get home. 

Pretty simple, assholes.  I don't ask much.

Don't ask what's in the long, thin package tomorrow, and you might get where you're going with all your limbs.

Apple Talk / Gateways
« on: September 26, 2011, 02:04:20 pm »

When you're moving through life, you see a lot of things.  Chances...  Opportunities...  Gateways.

Once in awhile you see a gate that you want to move through...  Something you want to try, a chance you want to take.  Maybe you rattle the gate, see if it will move.

What if it doesn't?  Climbing over, bashing it down, those are options, sure, but not the same as the gate opening and letting you in.

Some gates weren't meant to be opened.  Some of them are there to let you enjoy the view for awhile, take a rest, draw some strength while you consider the possibilities... before you move on.

Looking at all of these gathered in one place is enough to make you puke.
