Today’s Deep Thought:
Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he’s carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he’s carrying a beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you’re drunk.

So when I woke up today I saw that my reciever was out for delivery and I was really excited. So I waited and waited and waited. Then it was time for me to get ready for work and as I was walking to the bathroom I heard the low rumbling of a deisel engine in a big truck and so I waited a bit and tried to figure out where it is, and then I heard the clanking of the garbage cans, so it was just the garbage trucks. I was throuly disapointed at that point because I was hoping to get it all hooked up before work. So I showered and then checked the door to see if it had arrived, nope, nothing but pine needles and dirt sitting there. So I got ready and then had to leave. I was thinking to myself how can the delievery driver have eight and a half hours to deliver a package and still not arrive? So I drove to work feeling blah and had to deal with the asshole drivers that couldn’t even go the speed limit and shit and make me miss the light to trun.

I got the delivery notice at 5:42, the package was delivered at the door at 5:19pm. So it will be waiting for me when I get home.. I hope tonight goes by fast so I can get the thing all hooked up and stuff. 5.1 surround sound here I come! Weeee!!!

I don’t think that I have been this technologically advanceed since I was living in that apartment in Norman about ten years ago.

Today’s Deep Thought
There is one question that probably drives just about every vampire crazy: ‘Oh, do you know Dracula?’

So for some reason my DVD burner burns DVD+R really really really slow. (think 24+ hours) So today I went to Office Depot to go buy -Rs and by the time I drove the mile to get there I forgot if I needed -R or +R and ended up buying another spindle of +R . I was not pleased. I went ahead and opened it anyway because it was Imitation brand instead of Sony and I thought since I had good luck with Imitation then it would possibly work. No such luck. So I looked on Sony’s site and saw a firmware upgrade, and I am going to try that tonight to see if that improves the speed of recording to this media, if it doesn’t, then I guess I have 100 +R that isn’t going to do shit for me. I am tempted to sell them on E-Bay, but I don’t think I will make any money off of them, especially since they are open and used.

Today was kind of weird with the time change, my internal time clock was telling me that it was time to get ready and I was feeling all nervous and twitchy even though I still had another hour until I had to start getting ready. It was also weird driving into work with the sun further down than I am used to.

Yesterday it was warm in my apartment and I turned on the fan, I left it on and when I got home, it was freezing. Right now it is really cold out, it is 73 degrees. I think I am going to have to start buttoning up my apartment when I leave work so it isn’t so cold when I get home.

It is fucking cold at work today too, I am all bundled up like it is the middle of winter or something.

Morrissey – Let Me Kiss You

There’s a place in the sun, For anyone who has the will to chase one
And I think I’ve found mine, Yes, I do believe I have found mine, so

Close your eyes, And think of someone, You physically admire
And let me kiss you, Let me kiss you

I’ve zig-zagged all over America, And I cannot find a safety haven
Say, would you let me cry, On your shoulder
I’ve heard that you’ll try anything twice

Close your eyes, And think of someone, You physically admire,
And let me kiss you, Let me kiss you

But then you open your eyes, And you see someone, That you physically despise
But my heart is open, my heart is open to you.

o The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A death. What’s that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you’re too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alchohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months warm, happy, and floating�you finish off as an orgasm.

Today’s Deep Thought
o Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed, and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by Man.

o It was really sad when I went to visit my friend Jim at the state mental institution. He was convinced he was on a tropical island with no cares and no worries. It took me a long time to convince him that no, he was in a room with bare walls and a bare bed and he was wearing a straitjacket.

Scott Adams of Dilbert fame posted this, I thought it was good enough to republish. I was trying to think of something more to say to this, but alas I am at a loss of words.

Ideals

In your comments to my blog about torturing terrorists, several people said we shouldn’t abandon the ideals of the Founding Fathers of the United States. So I started wondering what those ideals were.

Before I go on, let me say that I’m highly patriotic, despite what you read here. Please don’t ask me to move to Venezuela.

As you know, the Founding Fathers had a lot of time to write things down because they didn’t have television, and there are only so many hours that you can spend whittling new teeth. But I don’t believe they ever got together and created a document called the Bill of Ideals. To understand their ideals we must look to their actions. Here are a few of the ideals they apparently shared:

1. Slavery – excellent source of poontang
2. Women voting? That’s crazy talk!
3. People who don’t own land suck
4. A good way to change tax policy is through violence
5. It’s not really crossdressing if you also wear manly boots.
6. Treason is okay if you have a good reason.
7. No one wants to sit next to Ben Franklin

Moments ago as I was searching the Internet for some Founding Father tidbits upon which I could wittily comment, I came across this historical fact about the Louisiana Purchase:

“Though the transaction was quickly sealed, there were those who objected to the purchase on the grounds that the Constitution did not provide for purchasing territory. However, Jefferson temporarily set aside his idealism to tell his supporters in Congress that “what is practicable must often control what is pure theory.” The majority agreed.

Jefferson later admitted that he had stretched his power ‘till it cracked’ in order to buy Louisiana, the largest single land purchase in American history. As a result, generations of Americans for nearly 200 years have been the beneficiaries of Jefferson’s noble vision of America and his efforts at expanding the continent.”

I found it at this web site in case you want to check for yourself.

As I suspected, the Founding Fathers were a practical bunch of dudes. I’m fairly certain that Jefferson shared the Plumber’s Creed: If you want to stop the leak before it floods the house, sometimes you have to bend until you (show) crack.
