"I HAVE BITTERLY DISAPPOINTED ALL OF YOU"

That's what Tiger Woods said today in his televised statement. And this is my reply:




'NO YOU DIDN'T!'


  1. I'm not related to you or your wife.



  2. Your personal life has no impact on me.



  3. I don't play golf, or make my living from your sport.



  4. Your professional life has no impact on me.



  5. I don't look up to sports players or expect you to be a role model.



  6. Your personal choices have no impact on me.

Why is it that we the public love to build someone up as a "HERO" (using the word incorrectly of course) or as a "Role Model" and then gleefully help to tear them down. Are we that small? Do we need to destroy someone else to feel better about ourselves? I remember when Britney Spears was considered a "Role Model". I remember when Michael Jackson was considered 'Unfit to have children'. It's weird. I like to watch Reality Television as much as the next consumer but I don't think they are better than me or on a higher plane. Why did Princess Diana die in that car accident? Because her chauffeur was legally drunk while fleeing the Paparazzi. Why was her chauffeur fleeing the Paparazzi? Because the Paparazzi are intrusive in Celebrities lives. Why are Paparazzi intrusive in Celebrities lives? Because they are paid huge sums of money to take pictures of Celebrities. Why are they paid huge sums of money to take pictures of Celebrities? Because pictures of Celebrities sell Newspapers. Why do pictures of Celebrities sell Newspapers? Because we the public can't wait to build someone up or tear them down for our personal entertainment. I'm reminded of the Coliseum of Rome. I hope they've fed the lions recently...

Today is a Bad Day and a Good Day

But how can a day be good or bad. It just is. It is only our perception of what happens to us (or rarely to other people) during this time period that we reference. All the other people might have had a 'Good Day' while you are having a 'Bad Day'. Today was a mixed bag for me. I knew this day was coming but it's still upsetting. Then when I get home from Tif's place I find a message from a friend. See? It's still the same day, just our perception changes. Personally any day on this side of the grass is a good day for me...So. I guess all that there's left to say is,

HAVE A DAY!

Snooky is sleeping on my sweatshirt

I feel bad for Snooky. She comes from an environment of multiple dogs and lots of excitement. I'm afraid that is not the case in David's Apartment. I would love to get a second dog. But the GIRLFRIEND would disapprove. ::sigh:: IF I ever got a second dog it would be another Boston Terrier or a French Bulldog. IF I ever got a second dog I would name it Scout if it's a girl and Spartacus if it was a boy. That is a lot of IF's. So for now, I'm going to stay a single dog guy and act as the surrogate doggie playmate for a bored Boston. ::makes a bitey dog face out of my hand:: Let's play Snooky! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

I need a life...


Final report of the commercial starship Nostromo, third officer reporting. The other members of the crew, Kane, Lambert, Parker, Brett, Ash and Captain Dallas, are dead. Cargo and ship destroyed. I should reach the frontier in about six weeks. With a little luck, the network will pick me up. This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off. Come on, cat.

USELESS FACT #5734


The Almighty Dollar is the OFFICIAL currency in the following countries: American Samoa, British Virgin Islands, El Salvador (I know threw me for a loop too!), Guam, Marshall Islands, Micronesia (Federated States of Micronesia), Northern Mariana Islands, Republic of Palau (pictured above), Puerto Rico, United States of America, Turks and Caicos Islands, Virgin Islands, Timor-Leste (Gesundheit!), Ecuador (sure, why not), Johnston Island (I've included a map in case you're wondering), Midway Islands, and Wake Island.

I'm writing the outline of a story

I have been jotting down ideas for a story. I'm working on the timeline of events. It'll probably come to nothing, but it's fun to work on.
