Needing your help...

Today I begin my prescription of Chantix, a costly stop smoking pill. I have quit before by just using the patch, but it seems harder to do this time around, so I chose this "miracle" drug called Chantix.

I took my first pill this morning and so far the worst I have gotten was slight nausea. A little bit of food cured that quickly. But there are some extreme side effects that are likely; suicidal thoughts, depression, aggressive behavior, etc. Thus I would like all of you to kind of monitor me for the next few weeks. Stay in touch, ask how I am doing, talk to the girls and see if they are noticing any changes. They will be the first to know and will be my most vigilant protectors.

I am not really worried about it much, but it is better to let everyone know what is going on and even better to chronicle the experience here in order to monitor changes in mood or behavior.

This one is for you...

I received this from a friend:

The Mayonnaise Jar & 2 Beers

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a
day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 Beers.
 A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front
 of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty
 mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with
golf balls. He then asked the
 students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
  The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar
 He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the
 golf balls... He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They
 agreed it was.
 The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of
 course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar
 was full. The students responded with a unanimous 'yes.' 
 The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the
 entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the
 sand. The students laughed. 
 Now, said the professor as the laughter subsided, I want you to recognize
 that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important
 things---your family, your children, your health, your friends and your
 favorite passions---and if everything else was lost and only they remained,
 your life would still be full. 
 The pebbles are the
other things that matter like your job, your house and
 your car. 
 The sand is everything else---the small stuff. 'If you put the sand into the
 jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf
 balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time & energy on the
 small stuff you'll never have room for the truly important things.
 'Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Spend time
 with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents.
 Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play
 another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the
 disposal. Take care of the golf balls first---the things that really matter.
 Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.' 
 One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented.

 The professor smiled and said, 'I'm glad you asked.' 
 The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's
 always room for a couple of Beers with a friend. (Or a cup of coffee, a movie, game of pool, cards, a song etc.)



Do Not Read This Post!


I figure I will go to Hell if I do NOT post this, but it will be uncomfortable. I also figure I will be going to Hell if I DO post this, but at least I will be more comfortable.


Do not read if you are easily offended. Seriously!Collapse )

Loving My Family

Just a quick note to let everyone know that life is good with me and I am happy. I had fun tonight and tomorrow I will talk to Dave about getting my tattoo. I am excited...

....as should you be. :-)

The End of an Era...

My heart aches now...I will spend the weekend remembering and reminiscing. Thank you guys for making my teen years unforgettable. I will pass on your music to a new generation.

08.21.08 – Dead Kennedys Announce Indefinite Touring Hiatus

August 21, 2008 - Dead Kennedys sadly announce that the band will no longer be touring in the foreseeable future due to health related issues of bassist Klaus Flouride and drummer D.H. Peligro.

Klaus comments, "Over the years, I have had the great fortune to have been a founding member of Dead Kennedys. It's been tough at times but it's also been particularly rewarding working and collaborating with men like Biafra, D.H., 6025, Brandon, Jeff, Ted, Dave, Steve, Skip and especially Ray. And to all those who I have met over the years - thank you."

Though unable to do major tours, Klaus will continue to perform and collaborate in local projects. Guitarist East Bay Ray, and vocalist Skip - from the Wynona Riders, who sang on Dead Kennedys' last two tours, will
continue working together writing songs and performing under a new band name.

Earlier this year, in May 2008, Dead Kennedys were awarded a Gold Record in both the United States and the United Kingdom for "Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death." "In God We Trust, Inc" was also certified Gold in the United Kingdom. This is significant achievement because the recordings were all released on independent labels.

On Dead Kennedys' recent UK and Californian tours, the audience reception was enthusiastic and genuine (including two new songs performed by the band). Thanks to those that came to those shows and for their encouragement.

Today I did something I have never done in my entire life (that I can remember). Thus today shall be marked in my journal as going down in history.

For the first time ever....


....I performed ritual in shorts.


Whodathunkit?


I would never have believed I would have done that.

And I just bought a car.....damn

Who said politics wasn't fun?

Truth be told, I wouldn't buy a car just to get a gun.

...I would just go buy the gun.

Room Swap 2008

When

momtothefey and I bought our house, we had planned on having making the two bedrooms upstairs into a nursery and an office, while we slept in the downstairs master bedroom. After all, isn’t that what normal people do?

 

 

Practicality being what it is, we have found that the arrangement does not suit our current lifestyle. Thus we have chosen to make a few unusual changes.

 

  • We are going to finish the nursery as planned.
  • We are going to move our bedroom into the upstairs bedroom next to the nursery, what currently is being used as our office.
  • The office will be moved downstairs into the master bedroom and we will be using it as our temple/circle as well. This gives us a lot more room for ritual without having to move all the furniture around.

 

Therefore, the only time we need to go upstairs is when we are going to be going to bed. 

 

I am willing looking forward to having the computers downstairs (except that Tree Faerie will need to be wrangled better) so that I can work on the computer and still spend time with the family.

 

Yes, this weekend will be filled with lots of painting, moving, drinking and bitching…and maybe even a little sex if we can get around to it. 


(It had been way to long for me to go without having a sex tag)
