I have not done a New Year blog yet, so I suppose one is in order. This year will be better than the last. Of that there is no doubt; neither is there room for bargaining. 2011 looks best from my rear view mirror. I share this line from Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky.
The flying cloud, the frosty...

OK, in a sea of depressing events, I finally have a little bit of goodness to share!

Today is a special day. I am smoke free since 11/7/06. I am no longer the Marlboro Man. I still miss it, for all the reasons I loved it in the first place. As I said on facebook:

Today marks the fifth anniversary of the last...

Thanx for your comment on my set "Mans Ruin" smile
kelpie_:
thank you for the love on 'Vacation Sun!'
I was sorry to read that it's been five years since you had that kiss. It sounds like you went through a horrible heartbreak and I honestly hope that this heals as quickly as possible so that you can regain your happiness and sense of self. When we lose someone we lose, also, ourself. Here's the hope that you can find yourself happy throughout this new year. smile Coffee is a wonderful mistress.
I, too, have said my farewells to nicotine. It's been three years for me and it was a terrible breakup. She was a dirty, dirty whore and I don't miss her at all! Whenever I see her with someone else it makes me sick.
Thank god for her sisters, Coffee and Porn.

OK, so what with all the financial issues I have been having, I am kinda desperate for work. A few weeks ago a friend of mine offered me the job of painting the rental house he owns. I have never in my life been afraid of honest work, so I agreed. He was more worried that I might take the offer as insulting - friend asking...

September has been a bit of a rough month, just like last September was. Not just for me, either. Relationships, friendships, jobs, and lives have all ended this month within my circle of friends. Such is life, I know, but it seems a touch more concentrated this month.

However, to balance it all out is the anniversary of the best thing I have ever been...

I hope your daughter had a wonderful birthday! Oh, to be 12 again.

The best part of being a dad is reliving your youth through your child - and having a good excuse for watching cartoons.
She had a great birthday, I hope, and I thank you on her behalf for the good wishes.

Sorry, SG. I was in the midst of writing this terribly long blog about looking for a job and being currently unemployed and all that other shit, when I suddenly realized that I really really really don't want to talk about it anymore.

There is a job that I would be good at, that I am qualified for, and that I believe would be...

Last night we went out and celebrated the birthday of my kung fu brother Tony. We had a grand time. We ate at Flip Burger - and if you are ever in Atlanta, you have to go there. The server was sweet and capable, the atmosphere was nice, the price was reasonable, and the food was AMAZING. Seriously.

Anyway, there were six of us - Tony, his...

Wow. Thank you! smile I take it you read a bit?

That sounds like me. Unfortunately my sister in law absconded with one of my bookshelves so a lot of my books are packed up. I reread everything I buy. But the nearest bookstore is an hour away. Thank goodness for half.com. smile

The 100th Man

OK, so it was about 5 years ago that my life took a very serious turn. I used to be a theater tech. I was an electrician, carpenter, stage manager, stage hand, all around go to guy. I worked for pretty much every theater in Atlanta at one point or another. There was never once someone who hired me who did not...

So, what do Michelle Obama, Al Capone, Eartha Kitt, Muhammad Ali, James Earl Jones, Jeremy Roenick, Andy Kaufman, Moira Shirer, Paul Revere (of he & the Raiders), Rock Hudson, Nevil Shute, Betty White, Mack Sennett, Benjamin Franklin and I all have in common?

We all had birthdays yesterday. Yes, even the dead ones.

January 17th, 2011 is my 40th birthday, to be precise. That I have made it this far I should be grateful. That I face it unemployed overweight and under stress is not how I had hoped. But I am trying to remain calm.

Mostly, I think I am a little out of joint because I am facing it alone. Not alonealone, but you know what I mean; I need not spell it out. It is hard to stay optimistic.

It would be nice to live in a time & place where something like your 40th birthday is an occasion (if not an event) for someone other than yourself. Or...

So, I am torn between:

"If I could work my will," said Scrooge indignantly, "every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!"

and:

"'Forgive me if I am not justified in what I ask,' said Scrooge, looking intently at the Spirit's robe...

But thank you for your words. smile

So today is wear purple in support of the LGBT community. I am generally not a joiner and I own no purple clothes. What I did, though, was change my Facebook picture to one of a purple lightsaber. I thought it fitting, as there is nothing I would like to see more than bullies get their arms sliced clean off in bar fights.

There is...

It is always odd when someone you only sort of know says/does something that completely redefines how you think about that person. Generally it's not for the better.
