Flights to Denmark finally dipped below $800 base price, so I snagged my ticket for PPScana. This also guarantees that I will have free travel for any International tournament I wish to compete in next year. 🙂
Sometimes, I love Glen Beck
I’ve been wondering about this.
That said, the only female I’ve seen working on E. Paces (where the painted signs are located) is the Sheriff deputy not managing traffic. At any rate, I think some women need to turn their soap box around and get a new perspective…or come up with more hobbies to keep them busy. I’ve never understood this mentality, that vocal feminists have, or the politics they’ve developed as a result.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21):
Everyone’s life is a hero’s journey, yours included. You have been on an epic quest ever since you first realized that your destiny is unlike anyone else’s, and that you have specific tasks to master as you pursue the long-term dreams that are uniquely meaningful to you. But like all the rest of us, you sometimes lose sight of this big-picture view for months at a time. You may even be fairly happy as you focus on your daily details without any thought of where your you’ll be years from now. If that’s the rhythm you’ve been in lately, Scorpio — and I suspect it is — it’s about to change. Your immersion in the next major phase of your hero’s journey will begin soon.
Well, that might explain a few things, but I’d really like to talk to my Elder about things so I can at least get an idea. Hopefully, Autumnfest will provide a bit of time for that. If not, I’ll at least have someone else there to bounce ideas off of.
That said, been doing good on meditating, still need to sit down sometime this week and do some internal work. Also, I really loved hanging out at Johnnie McCracken’s last night. So, methinks I might be hanging there some more. If any of you are interested in a weekly or bi-monthly hang-out, please let me know and I will post when I will be there.
Would you mind explaining something to me? I understand that everyone has a point to make, and I’m making a point to fade back into the shadows. However, what the hell is it with communication lately? I get the language barrier, and I get people constantly harping on something they know to be not true to get the reaction out of me they want (sometimes for mutual benefit). BUT WHY THE HELL IS IT, THAT ANYTHING I SAY LATELY HAS TO BE INTERRUPTED FOR A TANGENT THAT IS ATTACHED TO MY POINT ONLY BY THE SUBJECT MATTER, BUT OTHERWISE COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! It’s really starting to piss me off, because by the time people are done with their stupid little mini-soapbox rant, the point that I was trying to make is completely obscured and no longer relevant. Maybe you’re trying to get me to go with the flow of things, or maybe you’re just trying to get me to shut my mouth. But regardless, can you please remove the sign on me, wherever it is, that says “please interrupt me with whatever irrelevant point you are trying to make” in ink only visible to everyone except me. It’d be greatly appreciated, because the last thing this world needs, is for me to add another number to the statistic of people going postal. And I highly doubt the next poor individual wants missing teeth from the fist they will get in their mouth from doing this to me.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
The most striking feature on the planet Jupiter is the Great Red Spot, a storm that resembles a giant unblinking eye. It has lasted over 300 years and is wider than the planet Earth. I invite you to regard it as your symbol of power in the coming weeks. Think of it whenever you’d like to use your eyes to see in bigger and better ways, or whenever you want to draw on the inspirational power of a beautiful storm, or whenever you’d like to transform some disturbance in your life into a long-lived source of dazzling energy.
Um, I’ll have to think on that one….
My political rant for today:
Dear J. McCain,
I am one of the moderates of this country that you are trying to court. I can’t believe you put out a television spot claiming Obama, effectively, is the anti-Christ. YOU AREN’T ANY BETTER THAN HIM!!!!! Quit fooling yourself. I’m already not going to vote for him, but you’re not scoring points with me, either. I have enough people trying to pull the “a vote for _____ is a vote for Obama” and the “if you don’t vote for _______ you might as well go vote for _______” bullshit. No matter the outcome of the election, I’m going to be sitting in Kobenhavn hanging my head in shame and trying to find the absolute amusement in the situation. Because you are both jokes of our society, you’re playing the games that politicians play and claim you’re not. Yeah, you have a good bit of this population fooled, congrats. It’s great to be the fool king of fools, doesn’t it? *sigh*
Can we just have WW3 and get it over with already? Russia’s up for it, and kicking them out of the global boys club ain’t gonna make them change their mind. Just puts them out of needing to play by the rules. And as sad as this is, right now they have the full house, even if the rest of the world is gonna hate them.
Um wow. I’m still trying to pick my jaw up off the ground. Thank you Big Cat, really, really, really thank you. *blinks*
So, I spent the majority of work (since I only had a few clients who were super spread out), watching the opening ceremonies and Judo.
1. I am amazed and sad at the fact that humans can put something so beautiful together, yet find a means to try and absolutely destroy each other at the same time. Makes me think that humankind will be better off without formalized governments. I love Chinese culture and its history, but knowing that the artistic beauty of last night came at the sacrifice of all the people who have been made homeless by the Chinese government, makes the enjoyment of it quite bittersweet. And detracts from the idea of the games.
2. I found it overly disturbing that Bush and Putin were sitting and chatting, while Russia was planning and executing an invasion of Georgia.
3. I should have been paying attention to Judo for the last 3 years that I’ve been training Jiu Jitsu. But the Cuban coach is around 400lbs, and I can’t fathom how he got that way, and managed to coach a gold medalist.
PS- NBC sucks ass. Sure, make the smaller events available for us cable liberated folks, but reserve the main events for the fucking TV, at ungodly hours that only folks with TiVo can manage. You fucking suck, and you suck for not making it readable for TiVo (I looked Thursday night).
PPS- My friend Marcie is making her olympic debut in wrestling. Go watch her next week.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21):
The guy who gave his name to North and South America was a pickle salesman and writer as well as an explorer. After a stint in Spain selling his vitamin C-rich pickles to outbound ships, Amerigo Vespucci got to travel to the New World in 1499 and 1502. The stories he penned about his adventures there were highly imaginative, like his description of giant native women with huge breasts who employed poisonous fluids extracted from insects to super-size their husbands’ penises. I nominate Amerigo to be your role model in the coming weeks, Scorpio. May you, too, do what comes natural and be your funky self in ways that lead to glory and renown. (My source for the info about Amerigo is Tony Horwitz’s book A Voyage Long and Strange: Rediscovering the New World.)
Yeah, I’ve been doing a good deal of venting, confessing, connection severing, etc etc. For some dumb reason, I’ve acquired some new iron fillings and it’s time to get the magnet out to get rid of them. My sister, every time I see her, asks me how I’m doing, tells me I’m doing a wonderful job and the elevation is a tough time. It is, but she also says it makes you learn who you are, and I’m finally starting to get some clarity on that. Just need to talk things over with my elder or my brother, take my little sister camping for a girls night out and decide on the course of action for the next 10 years (gods that sounds weird to say). But yes, Mr. Brezsny, I do need to do what comes natural to me. If I don’t, I stagnate and cease to grow. Now to just get the universe to quit throwing these stupid challenges that cause me to revert.
