Periodic New Commentary

So these college guys burned down a bunch of churches in the South.

Yesterday it was released in the news that they did it because it was a joke that got out of hand, then they had to burn more churches to cover their tracks.

Today they are saying that alcohol 'may' have been involved.

I'm going to say alcohol, some weed and some inbreeding to be sure....

Who thinks like this?

Let's imagine that you think it would be funny to break your mother's lamp.

Because it's really not all that funny anyway, unless you're no more than about 10 years old, but that's pushing it.

Or drunk and high and you're multi-related to your relatives.

So you break the lamp, and then in your drunken stupor you think, 'Oh no, mom's going to be mad when she's found out that we broke her lamps!'

'The only thing we can do to cover our tracks is to break more lamps!'

'Great idea!'

Either that, or maybe they just wanted to burn a lot of churches, and then they said, 'if we get caught just tell them that it was a joke that got out of hand, and that alcohol might have been involved. I'm sure they'll understand.'

The only problem with that story, even if it is true-what joke in the world could possibly lead to churches getting burned?

The truth is, it's not funny. And now we've got 10 more people that are going to be caught up in the legal system instead of the educational system they were in.

Michelle and Cleaning

I met Michelle at 1/2 Price Books on Wednesday night, and we went over to my place so I could show her my clean living room, which looks, in my opinion, really good.

But you know how some women are-you could clean the carpet off the floor and the skin off your fingers and they would still find something negative to say.

Before we go in, I tell her that I've got the floor in the apartment picked up, but there are some fine tuning things that need to be done, and that she needs to be careful what she says because it might jinx and ruin the whole thing.

And I'm starting to think maybe I shouldn't have brought her over.

Despite my better judgement I let her in anyway, and I had to help her attach her jaw back to her face after she saw the improvement. She was pretty shocked, amazed and pleased.

So it was pretty cool that I was able to knock the ball out of the park last night, and I shall continue my project one day at a time.

Last night I picked up all the clothes off the floor and sorted them in preparation for doing laundry. Tonight I will continue to clean other stuff off the floor and from under my bed.

This run of organization is spilling over to other areas of my life.

I'm more or less living my dream of being a musician, but as an artist friend recently told me, it's a challenge to balance out the two minds, but that it is possible, and failing to balance out the sundries with the artistic will dry up the artistic well, which kind of happened to me the last couple of months.

It's time to move on to the next level, whatever that is.
