|I'm still here
I feel like I haven't updated my blog in forever. I've just been so busy lately with lots of really important stuff going on I just never seem to have time to mess with it.
I just got back in the country from a very
important business trip which is sure to make me lots of money so I don't mind too much. For now I think I'll have a drink take a nap and then call up some friends and see what they're up to. Current Mood: tired

|What happened to the Grand Old Party?
When did Conservatives become so not-Conservative?
We're supposed to about small government and being business friendly, not crazy religious issues.
I did not join the Republican Party to end up in bed with the Christian Right (seriously, have you SEEN them?). I joined the Republican Party because they weren't a bunch of idealistic losers. Only now that seems to be what they're turning into. Different set of ideals perhaps, but no less crazy for it.
I have to admit they do have some things right :
Promote business and filter money back into the economy via lucrative government contracts.
Decrease regulations to allow businesses to flourish and to spur economic growth.
Other than that though, who CARES about all of these other so-called Conservative issues?
Homosexuals? Abortion? Who cares? As long as they're not asking me to pay for it out of my tax money, why should it matter to me?
Somewhere along the way, our party has lost its way.
It used to be Us v.s. Them, the Rational Thinkers v.s. the Bleeding Hearts.
Now it seems to be the Right-wing Crazies v.s. the Left-wing Crazies, Legislate Morality v.s. Tax-and-Spend. Where's the sense in that? Current Mood: disgusted

I can't believe it's almost December already!nanoreye
is nearly over, and I'm less than 2 pages into War and Peace
. Where did the time go?
I've got just over a month to learn Russian and read the rest of the novel.
I'm not giving up yet! Current Mood: rushed

|National Novel Reading Year
Well, we're just about halfway through nanoreye
, and it's not going well.
We only had 2 sign ups (thanks, Mom!) and they haven't been very active.
As far as my reading goes, that's not so great either.
With only six months to go, I'm not even through the first page yet. Not very promising.
I think it was a mistake going with War and Peace
I think trying it in the original Russian was also a bad idea.
And it might've helped, at least a little, if I could actually read Russian.

|Pirkles and Pogos

he told me stupid things,
of birds, and mud, and breathing tax,

|What to read what to read
Less than 15 days to go until the start of nanoreye
, and I still don't know what book I'm going to read.
I don't want to go with anything too wordy, or I might not finish it, but if I pick something too easy, I'll get bored with it.
The best thing would be something that's enough of a challenge that I can pace myself nicely over the whole year, but I don't know what yet.
Any suggestions? Current Mood: anxious

I keep seeing posts about people doing National Novel Writing Month in November, and I just don't get it.
I mean, writing is hard
. I know, because I've written a book, and a really great one at that (according to my mother).
Plus there's all that pressure
. 30 days? Who needs that kind of stress?
So, I decided to tackle something a bit easier, and I signed up for nanoreye
I'll have 365 days to read a complete novel, from start to finish, and I'm pretty sure that if I pace myself properly, I'll be able to manage it.
I have figured out what book I'm going to read yet, but I still have several weeks to go, so I imagine I'll think of something. Current Mood: stress-free

|Ok, that's it. No more quizzes for me.

You have no Soul|
Instead of a soul, you are dominated by an empty void of unimaginable evil. You care nothing for anyone but yourself, and seem somehow almost proud of the fact. You are so shallow as to be practically nonexistent. You are a fake, a phony, and a total sham, in every possible way.
On the plus side however... well, let's be truthful here, there is no plus side. In spite of your high opinion of yourself, you are truly worthless and should've been locked away years ago, never to be seen again by mortal eyes. Yes, you really are that horrible!
Souls you are most compatible with: No one. For the sake of the rest of humanity, you should always be alone, or better yet attacked with sharp sticks and rocks.

|No way, man!
This would be amusing if it hadn't happened to me so many times. Current Mood: creeped out

This is this great idea I just came up with. If you see it anyone else's journal (especially cscottd
), it was copied from me.
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal...along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.
"Thursday, we had soup again and I put some in my pocket for later."

|Some of it's true, but I still may kick their ass
20 Questions Quiz
You are an SRDL--Sober Rational Destructive Leader. This makes you a mob boss. You are the ultimate alpha person and even your friends give you your space. You can't stand whiners, weaklings, schlemiels or schlemozzles. You don't make many jokes, but when you do, others laugh out loud. They must.
People often turn to you for advice, and wisely. You are calm in a crisis, cautious in a tempest, and attuned to even the finest details. Yours is the profile of a smart head for business and a dangerous enemy.
You have a natural knack for fashion and occupy a suit like a matinee idol. Your charisma is striking and without artifice. You are generous, thoughtful, and appreciate life's finer things.
Please don't kick my ass.

You are a complete and utter BASTARDIZATION
of the English tongue!
Unless this is your third language, there
is absolutely no excuse for your ignorance.
You shame us with your speech. Go back and
finish your schooling, bastard. How grammatically sound are you? brought to you by Quizilla Current Mood: annoyed

Your Brain Usage Profile
Auditory : 7%
Visual : 2%
Left : 0%
Right : 4%
Steve Pogo, you are wildly right-hemisphere dominant while showing a slight preference for auditory processing, signs of an unbalanced and potentially dangerous mind.
You will at times experience conflict between how you feel and what you think, which will generally be resolved by shouting at people and throwing things.
By and large, you will orient yourself toward intellectual activities and structure, although you will be terribly bad at them. You will tend to schedule yourself, plan, and focus on routine and continuity of operations, rather than facing the fact that you are a pathetic loser and that nobody likes you.
When changes or disruptions occur, you are likely to consider first how to blame someone else, and avoid any consequences and repercussions that might arise.
Preferentially you are unwilling to learn new things, choosing instead to devote your time and energy to meaningless tasks and pointless frivolity. In spite of your almost complete lack of visualisation capabilities, you often employ graphs, charts, doodles, or even body movement to distract others from your total incompetence.
To the extent that you are even remotely aware of anything other than your own wants and needs, you will feel most comfortable in those arenas which require little or no effort. You are not suited to pursue any vocation requiring skill, talent or interaction with others. Current Mood: distressed
