Friday Fives

1. What are your favorite ways to relax and unwind? Two ways. One is driving my truck around in the woods, specifically the Rockies here outside of Denver. The other, and you tell no one about this, is taking baths. Seriously, stop snickering you guys. I do it at least once a week, and have ever since college. By college, I mean cosmetology school. 2. What do you do the moment you get home from work/school/errands? Find my spoon & lighter, dig a syringe out of the couch, bust the balloon, sit down, tie off, and shoot the sweet, sweet goodness right on home until sadness and injustice go away. Just kidding, jeesh! I come home and turn on CNN or the Weather Channel like everyone else. Right after I shoot up. Kidding. 3. What are your favorite aroma-therapeutic smells? Vanilla. I am crazy for the smell, and can't get enough of it. Look, see? Just talking about Vanilla, and my pants are off already. Oh don't act disgusted, reader. Let's just say I ain't the only guy in America sitting at a computer in a basement without any pants at 1 in the morning. Also, coffee has a very pleasing smell to me. That is probably more anticipation than real association, though. I may not have my first cup of coffee until noon, but it is often the last thing I drink before I go to bed. I think my nervous system is totally fried, America. 4. Do you feel more relaxed with a group of friends or hanging out by yourself? Hmmm... tough to say. As much as I love and need friends... I am happiest by myself. For example, I can go out and eat dinner alone. I have gone to movies alone. I have even gone to rock concerts alone (hitchhiked, at that. Another story for another time). Listen, it's not that I don't like you, I am just saying we have different interests. It's not you, reader, it's me. See, now you're crying. Why do you always do that? I'm sorry, I am happier with you, reader. I'm sorry we ever fought. So can we finally have sex now? 5. What is something that you feel is relaxing but most people don't? to revert back to number one, crusing around in the woods. Specifically, I am in my truck, have a couple of beers in me, and the music is good. That, and smack; 'Riding the horse', 'having a chat with Jerry Garcia', 'chasing the dragon'... I think y'all know what I am talking about here... China white, Afghan Tar, Mugwump jism! As always, thanks to go to Roy for this week's questions. now, please click 'comments' and add your own answers to today's fives. Seriously, you guys. My therapist doesn't believe I really have a website... so I need you guys on this stuff, otherwise I have to do rorschachs all next week (hint, don't say "isn't that your mother having sex with the devil, again?)

My thoughts on the debate

My thinking is that you could say Cheney won by virtue of not failing half as bad as the President did last week. Mr. Cheney was able to form sentences, full ones. Mr. Cheney also did not make an ass out of himself by pouting. I think he did do a lot of re-directing of questions and points he didn't like. This is fair... because after all, it is politics. Being as though Edwards is a lawyer, we all expected him to just kill. Regrettably, he did not. However, without question he held his own and kept Cheney to the fire. I do look forward to Friday's debate, because of the fact that last Thursday's was about National Security. That is President Bush's strong point, right? We all know he has forsaken education, health care, the environment, and the economy to make us safer. So that debate should have been a slam dunk for the GOP. So, how in the world is the president going to defend what a sinkhole he has left this country? I'd love to hear his plan. Problem is, whenever he makes a campaign promise, I can't help but think: great idea, Mr. President... so why the heck haven't you been done that yet? in parting, I have to take this dig. We are to believe we should vote for Bush because he made this country safer, right? Ok... but if you ask him why he should get another four years... Bush will say "because we aren't safe". Which is it Mr. President? Are we better off because you made us safer... or are we doomed without you making us safer after this? Whose safer in America? People are losing jobs and can't afford health care. That is who is going to break into your house needing cash... not Al Qaeda. thanks, I feel better.
