For JOE from Joe's Mulligan of Life

Joe, saw this on DATING FAILS and laughed my ass off.  Then I thought maybe you'd get a kick out of it as well. :)

Fiery Down Under

I am heading back to Australia.  This time I will be in Melbourne for 3 glorious months:  November, December and January.

It is going to be very strange for me.  The very dead of winter here with temps in the -30*F to 40*F and there the temps will be ....significantly hotter.  I'm pretty sure my internal thermostat is going to have NO idea how to cope with blistering heat in what should be the dead of winter.  LOL!

Can't wait to see how I handle it.  If all goes well, Orion and I will be looking into making the situation permanent.

I'm just going to post this, I've started and have probably 5 drafts to this thing because I didn't know what to say and I'm so damned out of practice.

More later, hugs all around.

next time

In just a few years this will be Orion and me saving for our retirement. My son is 15 1/2. He stopped counting the halves years ago, I haven't.

Getting pregnant when you're 19 annihilates your entire life that you COULD have had. The older I get, the harder it is to live with that decision I made so long ago.

The thing that keeps me sane? I can't thing of a single thing that I could go back and change that would mean I would still end up meeting and falling in love with Orion. And he, he has made all the difference.

oh look here it is ARGH

Oh god, those pricks.

They changed the pic upload window too.

Seriously hate this new version of blogger compose window.


I'm going to be 39 this year. I guess I've become set in my ways. Was talking to Mom on the phone last night and I realized I haven't done nearly enough living to have been on this planet for nearly 40 years. I'm really glad that I've got Orion in my life. With him, all things are possible.

 Start with a whinge end with a purr. Not bad eh?

Thoughts on Anger

Excerpted from The Bastard on the Couch (27 Men Try Really hard to Explain Their Feelings About Love, Loss, Fatherhood, and Freedom). Edited by Daniel Jones.

My Problem with Her Anger by Eric Bartels

One night, as a patron at someone else's bar, I watched a bartender momentarily capture everyone's attention with a loud fit of pique. He was slamming the cash register, cursing it out, and then he turned away from the bar and kicked over a garbage can. And I realized something: that the many witnesses to his antics, including myself, saw the whole thing as somewhere between laughable and pathetic. We didn't care what was bothering him. We were having drinks and a good time. Too bad he wasn't enjoying himself, we though before turning away. Too bad he was such a child.

It was a revelation for me. Anger, justified or not--if acted mostly as a release without the clear-cut agenda of provoking change--is selfish and juvenile, obnoxious and unattractive, and it got you nowhere. No matter how determinedly this guy sought the empathy of others for the bullshit he was enduring, he wasn't going to get it--at least not this way. For the first time, I understood that the kind of behavior he was exhibiting was nothing more than an indulgent plea for attention that people weren't interested in hearing.

Was the guy under a lot of pressure? Yes. Was he being frustrated by all manner of impediments to his ability to do his job? Almost certainly. Did anybody care? No.

I did a lot less kicking doors and throwing things after that. Which is not to say I never lose my temper. But it becomes clearer to me every day that our reactions to circumstances are exactly what we permit or deny ourselves. It's dangerous to embrace the notion that anger is something we've earned a right to express and that it takes expressions of anger to earn respect. Lashing out angrily is less an expression of emotion than enslavement by emotion. And to believe otherwise is damaging to ourselves and especially damaging to those we love.

Submitted without comment, whilst wishing I had heard this 20 years ago.

You Tube censors religious hate speech

You Tube has changed their policy regarding video content. According to You Tube,

We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. BUT we don't permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, RELIGION, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity). emphasis mine.

Ummmm, shit. Most of the atheist videos I like on You Tube can be qualified as attacks against a religion and certainly they would be seen as demeaning. That's the whole bloody point. Calling bullshit when you seeing it saying, "LOOK, BULLSHIT!"

Do you think this goes both ways? Rick Perry's speech about how the GAYS ARE SERVING OPENLY IN THE MILITARY will that be removed as hateful and demeaning?

Thunderf00t had 4 of his videos taken down as having inappropriate content.

The 4 hate filled videos can be downloaded here:

The BEST emotional PORN

Draw Mohammad Day 2... NEEDS YOU!

Amenakin, Censorin' For Islam

Osama bin Laden- Shot in Head!

This video:

If this remains their policy and the quality atheist content gets shut down in favour of drunks falling down (isn't that demeaning?) and ass clowns wearing religious togs demanding the death of those who criticize them (hate much?), then the question becomes, where will the good videos be posted?

What is wrong with SOPA

I think our priorities are a bit askew. Don't you?

One man took a life and destroyed a family.

One man POTENTIALLY cost the entertainment industry a whole bunch of money.

One was given 20 years in prison. The other was given 50 years in prison.

Guess which was the sentence for the murderer? Remember to use your cynical hat when playing this game.

I hope you have e-mailed your member of congress regarding the abomination known as SOPA.
