Holy Crap!

Av' a look at what I killed this morning while trying to feed Daniella. It was this big ugly scary fucker. I thought it was a wasp. But It was a gigantic Mud Dauber. Look at the size of him! The quarter is about 1 inch in diameter by comparison.

Jury Duty

I just got this in the mail. The thing is, I don't live in Middlesex County anymore. This sort of pisses me off in a way cause I have always wanted to do Jury Duty. It seems like it would be a quick and painless thing to do.

Toning down the language

I am thinking maybe I should tone down the language a bit. I may be getting some traffic from someone who was probably looking for something else. I just got done looking at the search engine log. Some are just normal whereas this last one is quite disturbing.

Someone from Holt, MI visited my site today at 16:40:08 EDT after doing an internet search. The search words were:

handicaps fucking

I kid you not. This is a bit disturbing, and I never intended to be somehow linked to anything like that. I was a bit pissed off at the gross overuse of Handicap parking. Or maybe I should have gone with the British term of "Disabled Parking".

Interesting sorts of people in this world.

Awesome album

Thanks to Chris from Coolshite for informing me that it is M83 who do the song on the trailer to Night Watch.

I checked out the rest of their catalogue as well. It's good stuff. The song is called "Unrecorded" and is on the Album "Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts"

Check it out.

Court TV

I love court TV but lately it has been getting nauseating. And the news as well. Back in the middle of July, I was watching a bit of MSNBC and they abruptly cut off Tony Blair talking about the London attacks to bring the story of that missing girl in Aruba. Is it just me or is the media taking too much time covering this story? I seem to be reminded of Jonbenet and Elizabeth Smart. Young kids get kidnapped and killed every single day. You never hear about a black kid. Its always these rich, blonde, cutesy kids. The Elizabeth Smart thing was a prime example. I don't exactly remember but didn't we all come to the conclusion that it was the fault of the mother? They even made a made-for-tv movie about it for chrissakes! (as well as made one about Jonbenet and wasn't that also the parent's fault?)

What the fuck is going on with the media? This girl was kidnapped, yeah. Why the fuck should I care that they are using sonar to locate her on the island. People are freaking dying in the world. Forgive me for my insensitivity but at the most she was just a rich bitch who got herself kilt.

I am especially sick of seeing it dramatized on Court TV

"Natalie Halloway Kidnapping! Day 79!!! New evidence, Radar and sonar searches of the entire island!!! Exclusive!!!"

Gag me already.


Not much really going on

Haven't heard back from any prospective employers yet. This job market sucks and I may have to get a part time job working in a drugstore or somewhere to make ends meet.

Its hot as hell -but what else is new. This is "the south" and although cooler today, it still is too hot for me. In the evenings it is fine but then you have the problem of bugs and mosquitoes etc. I can't wait until fall.


Tonight's complaint

Why people feel the need to light up a cig in a mutherfuckin restaurant is beyond me. Moving from Massachusetts to Tennessee brought many changes and smoking in restaurants is one. This really pisses me off. Yes of course there are smoking sections but what about the poor bastard who has to sit adjacent to these sections? Smokers always bitch and moan that its their "right" and "This is America goddammit" But I say "Fuck You". I have every right to sit in clean air as you fucks have a right to light the fuck up. It is the public arena and govt. should regulate public spaces for health and safety concerns. Plain and simple. I think if any restaurant wants to have a smoking section -a true smoking section -they should seal it up and have vents blowing the crap outside to the roof. All at Smoker's expense BTW. And don't say this isn't possible cause they have it in Boulder, CO. I have been spoiled in MA, being able to walk into a bar or restaurant and not breathe in vile air. We should make signs in restaurants echoing what George Carlin once said:

Smoke if you wish but if you do be prepared for the following series of events:
  • First we will confiscate your cigarette and extinguish it somewhere on the surface of your skin.
  • We will then run your nicotine stained fingers through a paper shredder and throw them into the street where wild dogs will then swallow them and regurgitate them into the sewers so that infected rats can further soil them before they are flushed out to sea with the rest of the city's filth.
  • After such time we will systematically seek out your friends and loved ones and destroy their lives.
And I have argued many times with smokers who say its their right. They constantly say "go find a non smoking restaurant" Well check this shit out Sherlock. (PDF) Where are the smoke free restaurants in Nashville, TN? Freakin morons. What the fuck am I supposed to do? Drive to Delaware to eat dinner?
