A note to my contractors:

Please get along and get your hussle on so that I can go home.
I cannot take it for much longer. My mother that is.

I think,

that if we all got a little perspective,

we could be a lot happier.

Mark Twain

"Twenty years from now
you will be more disappointed
by the things that you didn't do
 than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
 Explore. Dream. Discover."

Siesta Key's sand is so white
because it's 99% quartz.

Siesta Key (Cresent Beach) was number 2 on
Dr. Beach's 2010 Top Ten Beaches list

Ringling Causeway
next purchase? telephoto lens.

I was somewhat dismayed to see this blocking the view.

This is the draw bridge

and underneath are the memoirs of Sarasota kids.

Personally, I have a Blackberry
that I've re-named Blueberry.
Not because I'm obnoxiously clever 
but because I don't like the way blackberries taste.

Once again I'm trying to sell something on craigslist and I'm getting spammers errrday

janeysanders1701@yahoo.com  asked me to sign up on bidzplace.com/?id=bhqt  so that she could complete the transaction on there and then pick it up in person. This was under the pretense that she did not trust people on craigslist - which logically makes no sense if you're meeting in person anyway.

an exercise in mind expansion

so since I left school I haven't so much as opened a book,
I think it's about time I get back in gear and ya know
read something with more literary value than People magazine

so here's my list (cause you know I'm a big list maker)
of books to finish by the end of the year
(and yea I know I'm supposed to have already read some of these in high school, but you didn't either so hush)

  1. Atlas Shrugged -Ayn Rand
  2. A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess
  3. Catcher in the Rye - JD Salinger
  4. The House of Mirth - Edith Wharton
  5. Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
  6. Mrs. Dallowway - Virginia Woolf
  7. Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
  8. Madame Bovary - Gustave Flaubert
  9. Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
  10. The Tin Drum - Gunter Grass
  11. Catch 22 - Joseph Heller
  12. The Dharma Bums - Jack Kerouac
additions welcome
"I had seen so many begin to pack their lives in cotton woool, smother their impulses, hood their passions, and gradually retire from their manhood into a kind of spiritual and physical semi-invalidism. In this they are encouraged by wives and relatives, and it's such a sweet trap."  (John Steinbeck, Travels With Charley)

I hope to never be so tied and bound to societies social rules that I smother my impluses (aside from any destructive ones), or hood my passions. That's the stuff life is made of, be it good bad or inbetween.

Credit Where Credit is Due

Pastor Jones
has cancelled the Koran burning
and has decided to use his words instead
- like a big boy.

Good call pastor, good call.

instiGator Jones

To the Pastor Terry Jones
who apparently thinks
burning Korans is a good idea:

First of all you are an idiot. A blazing moron really.
Give this two seconds of thought and I'm sure you'll agree.

I don't claim to know a whole lot about Christianity but I'm fairly sure it preaches tolerance and acceptance. I don't know about you, but burning another religions version of the Bible doesn't seem very tolerant; therefore that makes you not only an idiot but also a bad Christian. Congrats on failing at humanity.

Secondly, anyone taking place in this activity should be arrested for endangering the lives of our troops. What exactly are you hoping to accomplish by burning these books? I mean seriously? You're just stirring shit up. End of Story. Not only are you putting the troops overseas in danger but also the people in Gainesville ( which includes my baby sister, so I'm pretty pissed off about this ). I understand that you're still upset about September 11th ( the scheduled date of the book burning ) but more than showing the militants how mad you are, you're offending the Muslim community (who have nothing to do with the militants) and possibly provoking another September 11th-like attack. Further, how on earth does this make you any better than them? Those militants committed an act like September 11th because they were closed-minded hateful and ignorant people. Sound familiar - you supposed "Christians"? Your intolerance disgusts me.

As I understand it, Pastor Terry Jones refuses to cancel the book burning because he has the backing of one soldier who saw militants do terrible things (such as burning down hospitals and other buildings). There is no doubt that these militants are not good people. There has never been any doubt about this. However, Terry needs to take a step back and remember that he is not only provoking the militants but directly attacking the hearts of innocent Muslims around the world. I'd like to ask Terry if he thinks that this will really help anyone. Are you a Pastor Terry? or just another attention-whore? I'm leaning on the latter.

I know that with all the media attention this has received it's going to be difficult for you to back out now Pastor Jones - but I gotta say that the power to end this rests with you. Put your PRIDE aside, put your hatred aside and end this before it begins. We all know that this is going to end in retaliation, how could it not? 9/11 was unprovoked - Bears don't take kindly to being poked. It's on you to make the right and the "Christian" decision. This is NOT what YOUR Christ would do. Put your pride aside man, for the lives of the soldiers fighting for our freedom from terror, the lives of those surrounding you and for the consideration of innocent Muslims that you are offending. What if people went around burning your Bible just because they didn't like you? You personally, I mean. Yea, don't think you'd like that. Be a source for positive change in the world Pastor, we have enough negativity with the militants of the world.

If you go through with this book burning you should be sent to jail for instigating international bedlam. Just my opinion.

So I took a career quiz
and it told me I should be a consultant -
on falling ass-backward through an open window
into something designed for you Kati;
maybe sometime we could try
 walking through the front door?

So C and I are just tireddd;
tired of waiting for our nails to dry 
only to find out five seconds later 
(after all that waiting, blowing and
panic attack-like hand waving)
that the nails were not actually dry
but just in that fake-out period
that inevitably ends in massive smudges and 
which may account for the
massive amounts of acetone I go through.

Anyway, on my quest to find the perfect polish
I came across this little gem

Essence from Ulta

So the advertising on the display says
  "drys in one second"!
and I'm thinking "Whattttt, if it's too good to be true...".
Needless to say I bought a few anyway
( at 99 cents a bottle(!) I felt a little kelpto ).

Guess what,
well, by the time you're done with the last nail
 on your hand the others are all dry,
and more importantly bump-proof.
The quick-dry clear coat I use on top
 takes longer to dry than this stuff!
To make it even better it lasts about an entire week
 without chipping! Insanity. 

Oh and the colors are awesome.
Thank you Essence,
for your innovation and perfection.
Paying $7.00 for OPI or other random brands
 seems a bit ridiculous now.

pretty little liars

Anyone else extremely bothered
by the fact that her finger is offset?
Frankly, she looks like she just got caught picking her nose.

Every single time I see the intro
I hope the shhh will be centered,
but it never ever is.

need to travel faster than the speed of light?

no problem!
just squeeze the space in front of you and expand the space behind of you;
simple enough right?

how about you explain how in the world you plan to do that history channel? how 'bout that.

and what kinda consequences are we talking here?
Seems like you probably shouldn't mess with the universe, especially when y'all think that rapid expansion/contraction is the 'how' of the big bang theory. what happens when we expand the space behind us and it somehow destabilizes our planet and we're thrown our of orbit? I dunno man, sounds like a rough day to me.

ah knowledge, you always leave me with more questions than I had to begin with 

Eagle Nebula

Scientists think that about 1 in a 1,000,000 planets in our solar system might contain intelligent life; however, what if you bend our definition of life? What if life on another planet doesn't subsist on water and oxygen? What if life on another planet isn't carbon based? What if life develops on another planet that's able to withstand, what we would consider, temperature extremes? I mean, it seems pretty narrow minded to think that life couldn't exist on another planet simply because the conditions aren't ideal for us. Right?

On another note:
Did you see the man in the picture above?
That's a real picture of the Eagle Nebula!

Looks like a man with a very clear face holding his hands out,
or at least I think it does : )

I like making mud pies and feeling the sunshine,
I like cool October nights and shooting stars,
guns, kittens, and fluffy pink mittens,
going fast, moving slow,
feeling the oceans ebb and flow.
I like video games, pictures, and staying up late,
I love looking for couples on their very first date.
I want to fly to far off exotic places,
ride the biggest ride,
and live my life before I've died.

your boundries don't interest me

Philippe Halsman - In Voluptas Mors, a Salvador Dali portrait  

Voluptas (latin) or Hedone (greek) is the Goddess of pleasure (hence Hedonism),
daughter of the God Eros (love - also known as Cupid) and Goddess Psyche (soul).

I find myself a student of the great Hedonists: Democritus, the extinct Carvaka school of thought, Michael Onfrey - a French fellow, the extinct Cyrenaic people, and John Stuart Mill - a brilliant Brit (utilitarianism).

and by hedonism I mean the actual definition of 'pleasure and contentment as the sole goal of life' and not the image that springs to mind as defined by our society

*although I find myself interested and enthralled I cannot say that I agree with everything I find. To my utter frustration, the only consistency in my thought lies in my utter rejection of any organized religion or school of thought. I seek the truths that lie within my soul, and refuse to accept knowledge as truth without examining every aspect from every angle conceivable. I might be here awhile. I dislike the word awhile, it makes my tongue feel funny.

...I like ecstasy of the mind. I'm a wretch. But I love, love

"The only people that interest me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing... but burn, burn, burn like roman candles across the night."

Jack Kerouac

the decadance of the love you make is equal to the gravity of the love you fake

the saddest thing
is a man who lacks the courage to change.
self, circumstance, or opinion
it's just the saddest thing

"We're not, as some would have us believe, doomed to an inevitable decline. I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing. So, with all the creative energy at our command, let us begin an era of...renewal. Let us renew our determination, our courage, and our strength. And let us renew ... our hope. We have every right to dream heroic dreams. Those who say that we're in a time when there are no heroes, they just don't know where to look."

public service anouncement

this message is for everyone in the world:

Please don't ask me "waz good" or to "holla at me"
because I haven't the foggiest idea of how to respond
and it makes me quite uncomfortable.

Staple it together Jack Johnson

Its really,
Too bad
He became a prisoner of his own past
He stabbed a moment in the back
With the round thumbtack
That held up the list of things he gotta do

Its really,
No good
Hes moving on before he understood
He shot the future in the foot with every step he took
From the places that he's been cause he forgot to look

If the weather is better
We should get together
Spend a little time and we can do whatever
And if we get together we'll be twice as clever
So, staple it together and call it bad weather, mm hmmm

fairy tales

fairy tales are for little girls,
and very foolish women.

happily ever after
requires that you make it to the ever after.

magic tricks, much like Prince Charming's words,
are designed to trick your mind;
never trust a magician

nose-diving expectations and squelched dreams
is where it's at.
let down's are the thing to really put your faith in.
