Friday Fives

1. What is your favorite drink recipe? This is a remnant from college. It's 100% original and is called a 'Lono'. Take 1 shot malibu rum, half shot bacardi 151. Finish the glass off with Sprite and leave a Grenadine floater. It is more than delicious, it's terribly effective. If you want to sustitute Capt Morgans for the 151, then you have a 'Sailing Lono' 2. What is your favorite comfort food? anything deep fried then dipped in ranch 3. What is your favorite comfort song? anything by James Taylor 4. In a world without television, what do you do on a rainy/snowy day? play guitar, get the fireplace going, and drink with friends 5. Rabbit's foot or horseshoe? What is your lucky totem? um neither, besides my dead grandmother's left pinky toenail. I was kidding there. I ain't too supersticious. via Roy

A good smackin'!

Well, a study came out that says Prozac is helpful in treating teenage depression. We also know that Ritalin is helpful in treating ADD in kids. You know what we called kids with ADD when I was young? A spaz! You know how you 'treat' a spaz? A good smackin'! Trust me, that will calm a kid down quicker than all these narcotics you're feeding them. As for depressed teenagers? Yup, you guessed it... a good smackin'!

Besides, after feeding enthusiastic kids Ritalin for 10 years you know what you get? You get a desensitized teenager. That might look a lot like depression, because you have fried his synapsis and crushed all his natural emotions. I was a spaz, they called me motor-mouth. I was a depressed teenager too. No ritalin, no prozac for me... just plenty of smackin' all around. Look at me, I turned out fine

An Open Letter to Myself at 16


Dear 16 year old self. It is me, 32 year old self. I know you have a lot of questions, and I think you got the wrong impression initially. First off, we did not sell out. Why do you keep using that phrase, do you even know what it means? Have you ever done a damn thing that wasn't handed to you? You make me sick, get a job! Oh, that's right... you have always worked a job.

About the hair, yup it's gone. The good news is that truck is ours, pretty cool huh? No, I guess it is not a cool ass camper we can use to cruise the roads and be free. I don't much do drugs anymore, no reason to really. I know like it seems that we work a lot, but I can still sleep a good 12 hours in a row when prompted on a Sunday. Stop calling me 'bro', because it is kinda creepy.

You should know that we are married, but it is really cool. We live in Denver now, and Colorado rules. The woods are like Payson, but cover half the state. Plus, we have Red Rocks here. Adulthood is pretty cool, we go to parties and concerts a lot, and are going to see the Dead again next week. Pretty crazy, huh! Also, you should know that it is 2004 we all have flying cars and eat meals in pill forms. We all have personal robots, since they replaced the labor pool in the late 90's. Madonna is still around, and still hot... so that is good. One last thing, we did lose our virginity. So, stop worrying about that. Now take good care of your hair you little shit, and maybe we won't be in this boat next time we speak. best regards, your 32 year old self

Now we have proof

Hey all, just a quick post to point out the fact that we now have proof that Halliburton was a sweetheart deal from Cheney. I mean, we all expected it... but now we know. E-mail cited by Time implies veep helped ex-employer get Iraq contract The e-mail -- dated March 5, 2003 -- says Douglas Feith, undersecretary of defense for policy, approved the arrangement to award the contract to the oil-services company, the administration official said. According to an e-mail excerpt in Time, the contract was "contingent on informing WH [White House] tomorrow. We anticipate no issues since action has been coordinated w[ith] VP's office." The Corps of Engineers gave Halliburton the contract three days later without seeking other bids, Time reports. I'd like to add this. As you may know, I am a very serious opponent of the administration. In earlier days, I used to use this blog to slam the president, and campaign against him. I have pretty much stopped doing that, because the President doesn't need any help. All I have to do is sit back and watch him totally screw himself as more stuff comes out every day. Think of all the bad stuff we know about the president, kay? Now, think of how much we are still just learning now about how evil Nixon was. So what the hell are we going to find out about GW Bush in 20 years that is going to make this stuff look tame? Last Sunday the Post (which I still have in my recycling bin) did a front page piece on the fact that the top 100 lobbyists for industry and energy ALL work for the White House now. You remember hearing that Ken Lay was brought in to draft up the energy policy, but it appears all industry people have written all the policy. To quote the Post (who I think was probably quoting someone else). It's like fox guarding the henhouse. We are all doomed
