Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

My evil genius Procrastination has whispered me to tarry 'til a more convenient season.
Mary Todd Lincoln

Yea that’s all that is going on around here.

After I work tonight I will be off for 10 days.

I should be able to find time to post something interesting.

Until then, check this site out.

Be wary of strong drink. It can make you shoot at tax collectors... and miss.
Robert A. Heinlein

Some people have told me that my best posts are the ones that let my real feelings see the light of day. You know my hopes and fears, my dreams and nightmares.

I can’t imagine why anyone would want to read anything like that.

I don’t find this easy under the best conditions.

My oldest son The Artist has passed all 4 of the required tests for graduation, with only a year and a half to spare.
That means he will graduate as long as he passes his classes.
The only child left behind around here is The Gump
The lowest grade The Artist ever had was a C. Once.
Yeah, I’m a little proud of that.
I’m not sure why. He did it not me.
My other son is a very good musician and writer who gets good grades too.

I worry about how I will help them in the future. The things they want for their futures will require more than I will be able to provide and that has taken me a long time to admit even to myself. I keep hoping for a Mega Millions ticket to make all their dreams come true.
I just had a little bit of a revelation.
I never expected anything from my parents so why should my kids expect anything from me.
I think that is a subject for our first family meeting.
Maybe it’s too late for that.

I’ll give you an idea of my frame of mind right now.
I just spent the night watching,
The Covenant
The Night Listener (Robin Williams) So deep I almost drowned...
The Illusionist (A love story if you can believe it).
Snakes on a Plane. (Just to put me back into a proper frame of mind before bedtime. )
I should have quit after the 15th beer.
Sorry but I got caught up in the story line.
I mean what could be better than Snakes on a Plane?
That is as close as it gets to real around the Nits wittle house.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
Douglas Adams

We have a local paper here on the edge of the great poverty belt of Ohio and West Virginia that has been dubbed Appalachia by the politicians to remove the reminder of the poverty and employer abuse that routinely takes place in the coal mines and more and more by other industries in this area.

There is a column written by a man named Jerry Wolfrom who used to be the Editor of the paper before it was bought up by a big company. He retired to Florida then but still sends in a column from time to time. He had one in Tuesday's paper that I found enlightening.

He started out with a description of an old friend who a lot of people around here knew who was one of the rare men outside of politics who would talk your ear off and not let anyone else cut in.

The point of mentioning him was to talk about a new book that he read by Dr. Luan Brizendine called The Female Mind. She is a self proclaimed feminist and did a study that she just had to share with the world.

It seems that she found in her research that men and women have brains that are constructed differently.

She states in her book that the differences between the male and female brain explain why women are naturally more talkative.

She says women devote more brain cells to talking than men and the act of talking triggers a flood of brain chemicals which give women a rush similar to that felt by heroin addicts on a high.

She says that the differences can be traced to how testosterone molds the male brain in the womb. See, the women’s womb is responsible for the male pigs you are always complaining about.

The result is that a woman has a super highway to use for talking and expressing emotion while a man has a little deer trail that hasn’t been used in 10 years and nothing to clear a path with.

She also explains that a man uses less brain for hearing allowing them to become deaf to the most logical arguments put forward be their wives or girlfriends.
I think this is a little dig at the male animal.

Men on the other hand have devoted the unused brain cells to other vital uses.

It seems that the sex processor in the male brain is twice as big as the one in the female brain.

Men think about sex every 52 seconds. I only average about 60 seconds so I must be undersexed.

Women on the other had think about sex once a day.

I don’t buy that.

In my experience with women I have been involved with, some who don’t seem to be able to stop thinking about sex, but then again I have always be attracted to women who were basically tomboys.

I don’t have much of a point with this except that to most people it is stating the obvious. I also think that Dr. Brizendine missed exposing another belief as fact. I have heard all my life that women are bad drivers.

What do you expect when all they have to do is talk, and get as high as if they were mainlining heroin.

I think if we let the scientists keep finding out how the universe works, it will all change.
I haven’t decided if this would be a good thing or not.

I don’t usually make New Years resolutions but I have decided that 2006 was so bad for my family (not nearly as bad as it was for a lot of people) that I would give it a shot.
My son when we were wishing each other a happy new year summed it up pretty well when he described our 2006 as a train wreck.

I resolve to quit my job and turn to a life of crime. Jewel thief sounds like a lot of fun.

I resolve to forsake all my friends and relatives and stop reading and writing blogs.

I resolve to quit taking my pills and start smoking again, eat more fried food and sugar, and coat everything in salt.

I resolve to turn down any help or advice offered and to go out of my way to piss off perfect strangers, though I have never met anyone who is perfect in my life.

I further resolve to make a special effort to gain at least 100 pounds and stop doing anything that could be considered as personnel hygiene.

I resolve to also send money in response to all Email requests from Nigeria or British Columbia.

I resolve to go out to some Hacker sites I know about and insult everyone there being sure to give them as much information about me and daring them to do anything about it.

I also resolve to quit playing World of Warcraft and do other things to isolate myself from my kids and grandkids.

Oh, by the way I have never managed to keep a single New Years resolution and figure I’m not going to change at 50.

Happy New Year!!!
