Could we see some pics of your Muscatine Mellons. I'm sorry, the only thing i can think of when i think of Muscatine is the canalopes. Reading your writing is depressing, turn up the happy to 11 and rip off the knob. Give your kid/kids something to look up to and strive to be. I got a 3 year old that knows how to count to 10 in espanol, can write mom, dad, trey,
Speaking as a longtime fan of metal and Metallica, I agree Lars is an ass, but have you heard the new album? It's really good, it sounds like it should've been the album between ...And Justice for all and the black album. If you haven't already, give it a listen. I don't think I've ever listened to Soylent Green, I'll have to pickup one of they're albums, any suggestions?
I hadn't heard that one before, I used to have long hair and I got that I looked like Lars Ulrich of Metallica and Mike Patton from Faith No More. I can kinda see it though. Anyone ever tell you, you look like Angelina Jolie? 'cause ya kinda do.
haha. i kind of thought that might be why the question mark was there, but thought i'd make an attempt at being funny. I probably added you like i added most people on here, just at random. I have myspace and all that for people i already know, i figured i'd try to meet new like minded people on this site. plus you might be the only person i know from iowa, haha.
I'm not complaining. Sitting at a computer for 8 hours a day would really drive me up the wall. I've done what I do for the past 12 years and haven't thought of giving it up.
Do you know a British series "The Prisoner" from the late 60's? I've been watching it on DVD and thought it might be to your taste. I saw it when I'd got my first long trousers, first pimples and a voice with a 3 octave range like a crow, but I loved it. My introduction to surrealism. It's great. The individual versus conformity. Unhappily, I just looked it up on the net and found out that the star and creator, Patrick McGoohan, died yesterday. Still, the work is there to be enjoyed. If you have the time and interest and don't know it, then look it up. I doubt you'll be disappointed.
Keep fighting the good fight!
But what power! Yes, we do what we have to do to earn a crust. I wipe bums and wash floors. Not as bad as it sounds except in cases of senile dementia. Also not a traditional job for a straight man, bur employers love us. Our backs are physically stronger, so we don't take time off sick with back-ache.
I'm probably quieter in my way of being untraditional then you but I still enjoy going against the stream. It puzzles people and makes them think. A little consternation never hurt anybody.
Have a pleasant day/night.
Hello fellow atheistic Iowan! It's so very nice to know there's another atheist with a beating heart in Iowa. I esspecialy liked what you wrote about yourself, (you're a fine writer) and what you said about your son was very nice and true, that sort of pure innocents generally dosn't last...unfortunatly.

Hello! This must be the middle of the night for you as I've just had my morning run followed by lunch. Is this because you are dispatching things (taxis?) all night or because you like being up late? Mental non-conformism is a great stimulus to the human endeavour. An existentialist deviation that keeps the world on its toes. Or that's my excuse. Maybe I just like to let my mind go where it will and then see what it fishes out of the depths or the æther. A time of being for its own sake, not for a predetermined purpose. Make any sense to you.
Opinionated, eh! I am the chosen oracle of truth. Have I not just sacrificed the dregs of my morning tea as a libation to Apollo, God of predictions, wisdom and the Muses? And two cigarettes to Ahzura Mazda, God of enlightenment?
I never know if my mind is overcrowded or empty. Sometimes it just spits things out: sometimes it jams, sticks, freezes. Sometimes it's logical: sometimes it screams. Then I remind myself: homo sapiens, the thinking simian. There can be a price to pay for using the grey stuff but there's always the possiblility of living instead of vegetating.
