I am well.

I have no pictures. I have no enlightening commentary. I have no tepidly interesting tales from my day. It is cold, it is slow-going, it is disorganized and I am not at home. There are no tales today.

There is nothing to write about, you say. Well then, write and let me know just this – that there is nothing to write about; or tell me in the good old style if you are well. That’s right. I am quite well.
Pliny the Younger

I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.

Yes, the long war on Christianity. I pray that one day we may live in an America where Christians can worship freely! In broad daylight! Openly wearing the symbols of their religion…. perhaps around their necks? And maybe – dare I dream it? – maybe one day there can be an openly Christian President. Or, perhaps, 43 of them. Consecutively.

~ Jon Stewart

I contend we are both atheists, I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.

A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.

I was busy last year and never got around to buying a reduced-down-to-clearance-price calendar a month or two into 2005, as planned. I just printed out my own and stuck it to the window frame behind my desk to reference when I had no computery thing turned on. This weekend, I’ll try to get out and spare a few bucks for one. I like the cheesy art.

Since it is a new year.. eh… Well, who gives a fuck. These days are the same as the last days. People don’t change, they just continue to suck. So, let’s just have a year of suckiness and enjoy ourselves. Have some fun, suck a lot, suck it up. Here’s to a new year, a new start on old habits. May you continue to suck and disappoint! Harh!!

To anyone else: have my best wishes that you become a better person than you were in 2005. Work towards your goals and cherish your dreams. There is no power in the Verse as great as determination and will, so keep moving forward. Be better, be happier and breathe deeply while you still can.


Those who refuse to make New Year’s resolutions because they always break them anyway miss the point. Making resolutions is a cleansing ritual of self-assessment and repentance that demands personal honesty and, ultimately, reinforces humility. Breaking them is part of the cycle.

~Eric Zorn


Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past.

~Henry Ward Beecher


Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.

~Benjamin Franklin
I like that: Be at war with your vices. Yeah.

Marijuana

Dec 262005
 

I mean, marijuana grows everywhere, serves a thousand different functions, all of them positive. To make marijuana against the law is like saying God made a mistake. It’s like God looked down on his creation after the sixth day and said “There it is, there is my creation, perfect and holy in every way. Now I can rest… … … Oh my me! I left fucking pot everywhere! I never should’ve smoked that joint on the third day. Shit! If I leave pot everywhere, that’s going to give people the impression that they’re supposed to use it! Shit! Now I have to create Republicans!

~Bill Hicks

Statistics?

 Uncategorized
Oct 012005
 

The government (is) extremely fond of amassing great quantities of statistics. These are raised to the nth degree, the cube roots are extracted, and the results are arranged into elaborate and impressive displays. What must be kept ever in mind, however, is that in every case, the figures are first put down by a village watchman, and he puts down anything he damn well pleases.

~Sir Josiah Stamp (1849 – 1941) HM Collector of Inland Revenue

Invention

I don’t think necessity is the mother of invention – invention, in my opinion, arises directly from idleness, possibly also from laziness. To save oneself trouble.

It takes less time to do a thing right, than it does to explain why you did it wrong.
