O FB con't

just got 2 really sweet messages on my inbox via FB today
and i have to say
maybe it's got some really redeeming qualities

if i never shave my legs again will it be a sign

will it be a sign
that i have too much pride
or not enough


one thing i like is this :)
smiley face
it makes every questionable or partial potentially rude or blunt comment
seem sortof nice

facebook anthem

o- FB
so and so left her husband
so and so is dressed like a prostitute
so and so seems happy
so and so had a nice birthday party
so and so must have too much time on her hands
so and so is being weird
so and so hasn't commented lately
so and so said happy birthday to you know who
so and so . O FB
i am slowly and surely
cutting ties with the online world
of "friends" one never sees or talks to
of "friends" who don't exist
of "friends" who've lost their marbles

from far and wide
all the things i didn't need to know
but now can't help but stew

i like all the good pics and new babies and shiny weddings
i like funny stories and comments
i don't like wondering why someone deleted me as a friend
or didn't reply to my message

our home and native land
O- FB!)(

no i can't hang out past 5pm

cause i have night blindness
4 gray hairs removed
i bet there are no more coming


today i met a child
who was very misbehaved
and then i met his mom
well heard his mom
calling him names like

it was sad

please don't call your children names

wrinkles for humanity

one dreamy idea
half a decade ago
was to start a movement called
wrinkles for humanity

in which we would encourage
people to choose to keep their wrinkles
( ie. skip the botox and knife)
and instead spend the surplus
on others
(ie. the starving suffering masses of earth)

obviously, I/we gave up on this lofty goal
but maybe today i can post this short little blog post
and leave the idea

the idea being that if everyone on the planet
decided to keep what they have
boobs, wrinkles, no-boobs, bigbehind etc.
then there would be a lot of extra money floating around
the Pretty Business is a jillion dollar factory
spread that money around to others who don't even have the chance
of being old enough to have proper wrinkles
and look normal
which is fine



"it was noted that Gore is on course to become the first to make a billion dollars from the climate change industry. Gee, what could that agenda possibly be?"

New study suggests cannabis use by teens damages brain worse than suspected - Yahoo! Canada News

New study suggests cannabis use by teens damages brain worse than suspected - Yahoo! Canada News: "MONTREAL - The effects of daily cannabis use on teenage brains is worse than originally thought and the long-term effects appear to be irreversible, new research from McGill University suggests.
The study, by Dr. Gabriella Gobbi, a psychiatric researcher from the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre, suggests that daily cannabis consumption can lead to depression and anxiety.
The new study, published in Neurobiology of Disease, suggests that the reputed 'soft' drug has an impact on serotonin and norepinephrine, compounds which help control mood and anxiety.
Her research team observed that 18 rats exposed to cannabis had decreased levels of serotonin, which affects mood; and higher levels of norepinephrine, which makes one more susceptible long-term to stress.
'These permanent changes in the brain are also linked to certain mental illnesses, like schizophrenia,' Gobbi said in an interview Thursday.
'And we showed that even if we stopped the cannabis use at the end of adolescence, the changes were still detectable in adulthood"

for what it's worth

you are making a mistake

old cafe mates

i knew a girl
who told me that rock-and-roll was her god
her first name was robin
and she called herself
robin roll
i wonder where she is now?

we got into an argument once when she was drunk
while she was chopping vegetables with a 12 inch machete
so I let her win

be free

some words have been going through me for about a month
be free
i want to tell the world
be free

be free
what i mean is freedom from bondage
not freedom from natural life, jobs and marriage and children
but freedom from the bondage of anixiety
freedom from the bondage of addiction
freedom from the bondage of pride or unforgiveness
freedom from the bondage of trying to be an -advertisement of perfection-
be free

it has been said in some chinese proverb
that the cause of suffering is desire
and especially this
i want you all to be free from
free from wanting more
more is just more and more is not enough
so be free

(i write this- not because i am free in every moment- but i am so glad for the moments when i am free- and i want to pass it on)

nothing new

marriage is
a vow
a promise
a choice

hair is my friend

i finally know why i have been growing my leg hair for a month
for today
for minus 37 with wind chill
i'm no fool

i'm starting to have a lot of respect for Eskimos

i saw it today



infinite wisdom and clarity

mind boggling and glorious

the snowflake.

up close

christmas- and christmas

i'm all for yule-tide fires
big red presents
pine needle living rooms
and turkey
i'm all for the Culture of Christmas

what i don't get
is people believing that celebrating Christmas this way
has anything to do with Jesus, or is somehow sufficient spirituality

but I'm glad historians agree that he was at least born
i'm glad some people still want to believe in Jesus and his birth
even if the details are skewed from scripture
because maybe the Christmas Story would lead
the masses to want to know more about
what Jesus is actually all about
what he really said and did
and then maybe they would know him
and believe in him
and then learn that christmas time is really just a burst of hot air
compared to the Truth of life
and then maybe people would celebrate is birth and his life and his death everyday
instead of through vain tradition and holly
that isn't actually Holy at all

O Holy Night Lyrics

O Holy Night Lyrics: "O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, the night when Christ was born;
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friends.
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
With all our hearts we praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we,
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
His power and glory ever more proclaim!"

from tweet to squeak

i think the extra 5 pounds i have gained
makes me look less like a bird
and more like a mouse

you have child bearing hips

remembering how many times people told me this in the past
FYI-probably not a compliment

been said

to a child love is spelled T-I-M-E

every day joes

i am one of you


o to be good at something
something that would
buy groceries
is it odd
to feel empathy
for inanimate objects
today i felt sorry for my blender
for working so hard
sometimes i verbally thank my car
for starting
is this sort of like the imaginary friend thing?

the filter

the thing that stops you from saying something really stupid or crude
some of us have better filters than others
some people lose their filter via stroke or something in old age
many small children don't yet have a filter
i think our filters are inherited
which may not be good

Waylon Jennings, Amanda Lyrics- a song i was named after

Waylon Jennings, Amanda Lyrics: "I've held it all inward, God knows, I've tried,
But it's an awful awakening in a country boy's life,
To look in the mirror in total surprise.
At the hair on my shoulders and the age in my eyes.

Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.
Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.

It's a measure of people who don't understand,
The pleasures of life in a hillbilly band.
I got my first guitar when I was fourteen,
Well I finally made forty, still wearing jeans.

Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.
Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife."


i hope everyone who reads this
or reads the information and stats
about climate change
also knows that there is other information and stats out there
that conflicts with what obama and gore and suzuki and carbonpayers think

there is data
that actually states that the world is not at all getting warmer
but infact colder
there is information that admits
that perhaps this Climate Change Industry
is all just a sham

i am not here to tell you what to think
i encourage you to educate yourself about these details

some good advice from a saskite

if you find a ditch
stay in it
how cool is this?

lllllooove it

what we really need here in the english language is some more user friendly words for

so that when we say we love our new shoes

it is a different word than

when we say we love our children


when i say i love vietnamese noodles

it is different than

when i say i love the peace of God


looove it!

when i shared the message
of love
i meant
love something
don't just like it

but i didn't mean
love something that is bad for you
that will rob your soul
i didn't mean
love another woman other than your wife
i didn't mean
love money more than God

love is indeed dangerous

woods tiger

the thing is
you are not the first or only
person to go astray

you are not the first or only
to not have the strength of will to live up to the values
you supposedly hold dear

you are a dust speck among the sands of humanity
who fail
who suck
who make ugly bitter mistakes

you poor foolish dog


and take your bell bottoms with you

dear little autistic boy that got lost

thinking of you today
i am so glad you had your doggy friend to cuddle with
i know your parents are broken of heart
i am sorry you couldn't yell for help

it's a wrap

does anyone not love wrap dresses
the ultimate
go anywhere anytime
cover important bits
no brainer
outfit in one?

it can be done

i finally found a way to get anywhere before 11am

i think this is cool- from a blackberry ad

don't just like

like is watered-down love.
like is mediocre.
like is the wishy-washy emotion of the content.
athletes don't do it for the like of a sport.
artists don't suffer for the like of art.
there is no i like NY T-shirt
and romeo didn't just like juliet

love. now that's powerful stuff.
love changes things.
upsets things.
conquers things.
love is at the root of everything good that has ever happened and will ever happen.
