San Diego Day 2, 10:11

Six months ago today.
Richmond VA... learning the awesomeness of push button pain killers.
Hadn't yet learned i was shaved bald below the belt. My wife was down the hall in her own world of push button pain relief. Jesus,what a hero and Savior my wife is. Was i worthy?

Where am i now 6 months later?
Seeing a bright future?

Nope. I'm in a town i hardly know with people i hardly like.. working my tail off for little or no recognition.
Is this what life is about?

I am on That stationary bike pedaling towards a mirror image of myself.  Who us looking at whom?

Fuck theses depressing medications.

Chk Chk Chk !!!

Just found out that Nic Offer is the ONLY lead singer in Chk Chk Chk and that John Pugh left the band in 2007... Where have I been?

John Pugh IMHO was the better of the two singers.  While Nic might have the showmanship Pugh had the better stylings.

With John Pugh and bassist Justin van der Volgen gone from the band... why continue to follow and listen !!!?

This totally makes me sad to think that the annoying (and weak link of the band) Nic Offer now carries !!!.
why !!!, why?

I guess I will need to research Pugh's band Free Blood

Sad week

Fuck Today!

It's the worst!!!!

Here is the head of a sparrow.  Hopefully it will make things better.  But yeah, FUCK TODAY!

Wednesday, November 16, 2011


Pretty much the same.

I drive on long stretches of road, passing faceless drivers.. personalities only passed on by the way they drive, their driving habits.

I pull into the gravelled drive and am greeted by the silent exterior of my warm home.

We cook, we eat, we discuss. Desserts, enjoyed most nights but not all. 

Then we lie comatose. Trying to break that habit we sometimes turn on the radio, opening a Pandoras box of cacophony.  These are moments i enjoy more.

Other times we attempt to complete projects that would make Sisiphus appear to be slacking. We take our time, as our home is here to stay.

Eventually we succumb.

It all starts again tomorrow.

30 miles on a 2 speed

Sunday was spent biking the Baltimore Annapolis Trail.

Mostly flat with gradual hills.  While the peeps I was with had multi geared road bikes, I took up the rear in my two gear Marin Hamilton 29er.  I pedaled longer and harder than my friends who could change their gear at the flip of a paddle or switch.  All in all a great ride and an even better work-out.

What's with the Lance Armstrong wanna be's?  DO YOU have to dress in all lycra?  Do you have to spend money on specialized clothes, when normal clothes work just as well?  It's not like it is a time trial or a mountain stage of the Giro d'Italia.  Why do Americans feel the need to wear sport appropriate clothing to the particular sport they are partaking in?  Just because you watch the Tour and casually bike on the weekends, does not require you to put on the "uniform". I understand that some sports do require special equipment, but last I checked scuba gear is not required for biking... SHit brother just roll up your right pant leg so your pants don't get caught in the gear...

I am sick an tired of seeing all the overweight Lance Armstrong wanna be's cycling on the trails of Maryland and the District.

But yeah anyway.  All you need are two gears and a rolled up right pant leg.

Word of the Day: Turgid



Swollen and distended or congested: "a turgid and fast-moving river".

(of language or style) Tediously pompous or bombastic: "some turgid verses on the death of Prince Albert".

Idiot is me

I woke this morning, at 5:15 thinking i needed to drive 2 hours to Richmond, VA for a doctors appointment.  Prior to leaving i decided to check my phone messages That had built up.  Yes i have the odd ability of not checking my cell phone messages until months later. Low and behold I had a reminder message from the Hume-Lee Transplant Center reminding me my appointment was not until MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14th.

Back to bed?
Empty the dishwasher?


Enjoyed a delicious slice of pumpkin pie.

Can't make this up: the Mount Rainier, Maryland edition

I knew when we bought our house, in Mount Rainier, Maryland, we were moving into a mixed neighborhood of artists, aging hippies and blue collar plebes.

Being the social guy that I am, I subscribed to the neighborhood/city's yahoo group listserve to learn up on the locals, the politics and the general goings on.

Most emails inquire into good contractors, rumors about our city government and the giving away of free garbage.

The listserve received the below email last night from Joanne Kirsch, enjoy its simplicity:

I wonder if her animal needs to stop smoking or lose weight?  Or maybe is suffering from depression...

If you want to subsribe to utter whackiness that is the Mount Rainier, MD yahoo group listserve, feel free it is open to all and not moderated:

Is this Doug?

Herman Cain.... sir look to your own party for the machine tactics

Dear Sir Godfather Herman Cain,

I consider myself a far left of center independent voter.  But I like you, Herman Cain, I like you a lot.  Your heading a pack of emotional issue driven screwbags who have no answers to the issues of the day.  999 is perfect. Practical??? prolly not.

Anyway, your recent statement regarding the Democratic Machine being behind your attacks is so wrong its mind boggling.  The demos want you to win, I want you to win, your party's nomination.  Please look to your racist brethren of the GOP.  They are leading the way and spending the money in an attempt to bring you and your foot long down (i have it on good authority) via a high-tech lynching. BECAUSE THEY ARE SCARED!

Most probably think it is Perry who is funding your "Democratic machine", but I think its the cultist Romney, cuz he wants the nomination more.

I am sure you know this, 'cause you are a smart guy, and you are just using the demos as your 'high-tech' punching bag, so that in the event you DO win your party's nomination you have something to point to and say "hey, look what they did".

Anyway, in the event you read this I want you to know that I am posting a link to your campaign website's DONATE page: DONATE TO HERMAN CAIN.


I want you, Herman Cain, to win the GOP's nomination.

I urge all of my readers to visit www.hermancain.com and donate to Herman Cain's campaign.  Because anything else would be detrimental to our great nation.

Yours in Christ,


ps I tried to type this in Comic Sans but blogger.com does not provide it as a font choice.

Don't forget to donate to Herman Cainhttps://www.hermancain.com/donate

$15 Pants

I'm now in the in crowd.  

I'm sporting fresh 'wrinkle resistance' pants.  

My legs are styling in their plastic sheened fabric.  

I walk down the halls of this office space with the confidence of a Berkshire Hathaway employee, flinging $100 bills at unsuspecting gringos and their latino water can holders.  

Naked and frail poor look to me as the pinnacle of social advancement.

I am the elite. 

I am the bossman, the supreme chief.  

I climb to the top of my figurative mountain and scream at the top of my lungs 

It is because of these pants that I am what I am.

Why I think Charlie Davies is a selfish tool.

Probably why I think Charlie Davies is a selfish tool.... .. when my brother broke his neck in a pool accident at a neighbor's party (where alcohol was served) he had the opportunity to sue (and was even encouraged to do so by friends and family). Did he sue? no. Why? he took responsibility, even though he was not fully to blame.. its been 3 years since that accident and he just started a part time job. he has struggled to pay bills and his mortgage... his family (wife and two kids) had to get by any way they could.. draining life savings... draining my family physically, emotionally and economically.

Did he make $300,000 a year playing a game? no.
was he able to get up from his accident less than 2 years later and run? no
My brother walks now, with the assistance of crutches, but he will always be partially paralyzed.
Is my brother a stronger and better man than Charlie Davies? Most definitely.
Is he richer then Charlie Davies will ever be? yes cause he has the dignity to take responsibility for his actions.

charlie davies take some responsibility in your life, you are lucky to be alive and make any money doing the thing you love. Some are not as lucky.

Coffee just not doing it today.. But man oh man what a weekend

Had a great weekend.  Rode 15 miles on the bike trails of PG County.

Why is that when I brought this up in conversation with a co-worker (who is from racist Prince Williams County, VA) she immediately asked, "Was it safe"?

White people, who have never lived in an urbanized area, are whack.....

Which leads me to an observation I had while on my 15 mile bike escapade.  Where are all the white children at????  Sunday was a beautiful fall day.  Each and every playground that I came in contact with (PG County bike trails connect several smaller parks with actual playgrounds with jungle gyms and all) was thriving with children.  All whooping and hollaring as they were having fun.  The only thing absent... NO WHITE CHILDREN.  Where were they?  I know my neighborhood and the towns surrounding it abound with children who are of the caucasian variety. Since it was beautiful, kids should be flocking to playgrounds with swing sets and slides and monkey bars.

Do white children  (or more to the point their parents) just not do public parks?

Occupy Wall Street: Farming is Direct Action

First let me state, I am one of the 99% and I support the OWS movement.  The above picture, by Lee Ranaldo, clearly states my position on what should be done.  All the over educated under employed protesters on Wall Street who went to college and are having difficulty paying their student loans, let me suggest the following (and please do not take offense).  Note, I want this movement to grow and consume the rest of America. 

How about we, the under employed/over educated Occupy Wall Street protesters seek employment on America's farms as farm hands, in America's non-union factories on the line, in America's ditches as ditch diggers or in America's fast food emporiums.  Bring this cause to the under educated working class in order that they may learn and join this movement.  This movement need not be so selfish, as I see a lot of the OWS who want THEIR student loans forgiven, THEIR pay from corporate America to increase.  Could this not be the same selfishness that is giving Wall Street and Corporate America the power they yield at a cost to us? I ask in all honesty, what about the REAL 99%, the working poor, the fast food emporium burger flipper, the chain store mall worker, or the migrant farm hand.  A majority of the over educated OWS protesters were educated and prepped to work in the very companies that have their hands in the Wall Street coffers.  

To you I say, Take direct action!
Get your hands dirty!

From our heroes Occupy Wall Street; who are occupying Wall Street

Official Statement from Occupy Wall Street - this statement was voted on and approved by the general assembly of protesters at Liberty Square: Declaration of the Occupation of New York City

As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.

As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.

They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.

They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.

They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.

They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.

They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless nonhuman animals, and actively hide these practices.

They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.

They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.

They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.

They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.

They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.

They have sold our privacy as a commodity.

They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press.

They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.

They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.

They have donated large sums of money to politicians supposed to be regulating them.

They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.

They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantive profit.

They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.

They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.

They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.

They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad.

They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.

They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts.*

To the people of the world,

We, the New York City General Assembly occupying Wall Street in Liberty Square, urge you to assert your power.

Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.

To all communities that take action and form groups in the spirit of direct democracy, we offer support, documentation, and all of the resources at our disposal.

Join us and make your voices heard!

Profiting off of TRAGEDY!??!

Why is Giant attempting to profit off of a tragedy?
I don't want to remember the horror of that day.
I doubt Giant will close on the 11th. Shame on Giant for only thinking of their profits.

Baked! Cheetos

I love you!

No regulars so i'll type about my kidney

<p>I'm sitting at the transplant center waiting for my cytogam infusion. Which means sitting on my ass for four hours while meds slowly drip into my veins.&nbsp; My donor, at one time, came in contact with a herpes type virus that lies dormant in their organs.&nbsp; I knew the risks and signed off on taking a possibly infected kidney.  The doctors informed me that 8 cytogam infusions would help my body not contract the possible virus (a type of herpes).  Today's infusion is number seven, the eighth and final is scheduled for a month from now.

Infusion appointments are long and slow.  To complicate matters, i was late to the appointment by 10 minutes, and since the cytogam is made to order here at the hospital I have to always wait up to and hour if I'm late by five or ten minutes.

So here i sit waiting for my meds to arrive.
