One of the joys of being a child in New York in the 1970s portion of the Television Age. And according to this article, it's now out on DVD.

The following appeared in the "Sound Off" column of the Capital Times weekly supplement to the Wisconsin State Journal, October 15, 2008...

"There are perhaps several million Arab Americans. Barack Obama is not one of them. New Hampshire Sen. John Sununu, University of Miami President Donna Shalala and the late comedian Danny Thomas are. They are as welcome here as the Germans and it's quite offensive that some of John McCain's followers are stupid enough to think they can get somewhere by making the mere accusation that somebody is an Arab."

(Fresh from the "Listen to the muthafuckas whose words get taken waaaaaaay out of context before you judge" department; originally posted in If The Shoe Fits Jr.)

Watching the Bill Moyers interview with Rev. Jeremiah Wright - in a lot of ways, all it's been so far is two people of faith discussing faith, (including more of that sermon than I've seen/heard on CNN or anyplace else, with an explanat history ion to boot!) and their place in America today. No hostile, hateful stuff, no Photoshopping/Audio Hijacking/sound-biting of a man's words for the news cycle... just a dialogue.




P.S. Look up the word "hermeneutics"... you might be glad you did (esp. if you'll be watching this interview at a later time).

Thanksgiving dinner was mellow. Going with a big chicken (for the second year in a row) instead of turkey was a smart, meaty move, as was foregoing stuffing.

Of course, I write about dealing with a customer who needed some sleep, and then I get no sleep that same night (Tuesday). It was awful, and I was awful to John - saying some things that I quickly regretted because my brain was in such an oxygen-deficient state of shock from the humidity that was still in the air, even with the dropping temperatures relative to the previous few days.

Called in sick yesterday (because most of my upper body was in screaming pain, and I really needed some sleep - go figure! - and got it eventually.), which ended up having the positive effect of giving me some time to unpack some more stuff from storage into the new bathroom.

I also finally got to use the sweet-if-compact new bathtub with jets and thangs built into it last night, accounting for the much improved sleep of last night and today's not-so-stiff neck and not-so-sour stomach.

The Everything Test

There are many different types of tests on the internet today. Personality tests, purity tests, stereotype tests, political tests. But now, there is one test to rule them all.

Traditionally, online tests would ask certain questions about your musical tastes or clothing for a stereotype, your experiences for a purity test, or deep questions for a personality test.We're turning that upside down - all the questions affect all the results, and we've got some innovative results too! Enjoy :-)

You are more emotional than logical, more concerned about others than concerned about self, more atheist than religious, more dependent than loner, more lazy than workaholic, more rebel than traditional, more engineering mind than artistic mind, more cynical than idealist, more follower than leader, and more introverted than extroverted.

As for specific personality traits, you are slutty (71%), intellectual (63%), greedy (62%), adventurous (56%).

Punk Rock73%
Young Professional70%
Life Experience

Your political views would best be described as Liberal, whom you agree with around 57% of the time.
Your attitude toward life best associates you with Working Class. You make more than 68% of those who have taken this test, and 38% less than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated R.
By the way, your hottness rank is 67%, hotter than 72% of other test takers.

Been groggy all day - partly from the drudgery of dishwashing and wasting much time (when not washing dishes) online today.

Just showered, and finally (at 2:45pm) have boxers and a t-shirt on.

It's been a while, I know.

I've been trying to... live. That, and dealing with a little issue (namely, the state of my cracked-up emotions) that I didn't want to spew all over total (or near-total) strangers.

Haven't made the long-overdue appointment with a chiropractor yet (mainly because I'm still scouting out the chiropractors in the area - there are a fewtoo many of 'em), but I have scheduled other things (eye exam, oil change, etc.) in the coming weeks. And I think I now have a place to stay at besides my sister's when we go to New York for Memorial Day, to boot. I was concerned about having to cough up major money for a minor hotel room, but an MMF acquaintance has offered his spread in Jersey City, which is a bit of a relief, considering that the other alternative would be to crash at my sister's already crowded house.
