Amy Winehouse R.I.P.

According to the press release "All her friends are devastated and shocked that this happened."


I mean come on, I loved the girl's music, but I had no illusions that even with my Diabetes, Cholesterol, and other issues, that I'd probably outlive her.

and by strange coincidence her life ended at age 27, same as Hendrix, Morrison, Joplin, Cobain.
(a short wiki-wander shows Hank Williams Sr. died at age 29, though Jr. came closer in his mountain-climbing accident.)

Watching a movie, I must Blog!

Casino Royale. The new one, not the old comedy. The intro music has a lyric,

"♬ Arm yourself because no-one else here will save you! ♪"..
Why didn't the British Government BAN this song?
I mean someone might actually consider this advice or something.

Viewing the lyrics it's a fairly cold-blooded spy ballad.
Myself I prefer Shirley Bassey, and Sheena Easton, to Chris Connell.

Karma can be such a Bee-Atch

I have a 'co-worker', at this charitable organization.

He's a bi-sexual hipster, meaning he's a pain in the ass to both genders with the same intensity level.

I work for these people because I believe they are a worthwhile cause.

Despite his verbally supportive stance, he's working off community service on a DWI.

When I pointed out to him that, once his community service is fulfilled, we will never see his Diesel Jeans clad ass ever again, and he's the charitable equivalent of a 'Lipstick Lesbian', he took to calling me a Em-Effer.

I pointed out that he could be correct, and I would allow him to call me any derivation thereof except Pop, or Pops!

For the last week, he has called me every thing in the thesaurus that could be construed as 'father'.

His girlfriend finally tired of his winning ways, and today his actual Mother had to pick him up after his stint.

She's about 5 years younger than I. I didn't recognize her under his surname as it were only a slightly more lasting effort than any other the feckless sperm donor had made.

Mea Maxima Culpa. I indeed had Effed his Em. We both enjoyed it immensely. And if it weren't for the fact I have a recently impregnated girlfriend, I'd be Effing the H-E-Double Toothpicks out of her this very moment.

Girlfriend may consider a hall pass, Provided she gets first go! Former Fling is seriously H-A-W-T. Forty-Four is both her age AND cup size.

Co-worker is seriously snarked off, pissed off, cheeesed off, and possibly contemplating Step-Almost Patricide!

Calling him 'Son' one more time might just do it!

random from the road

I have been reading HG Wells' The World Set Free. I was tempted to angrily dismiss it a commie screed, but reading deeper, it resonates with my original philospohy. Having read 80% I'm convinced he doesn't go far enough. We could get along without a government, or one pared back to the simplest functions.

I have been listening to the few mp3s upon my netbook, continious access to the internet has made me either park my music in the cloud, or listen to youtube songs or videos. I need to have music to sustain me on the road. Right now, I'm living upon a few scraps of heavy metal, and the more or less complete works of Hayseed Dixie! I'm tempted to make a mp3 CD called Paddle Faster, I hear Banjos!

no time to blog

for the last week or so and so much to blog if I had a minute, which I didn't.

Got tired of eating at restaurants, I finally grabbed a disposable grill, and a couple of steaks.
My steak was delightful.
I ended up having to use my cigar draw-poker, and my pocket knife, as fork and steak knife.
note to self: remember to grab some silverware, and corelle ware for the road.
