If you can read this whole "contract of wifely expectations" then you've got a stronger stomach than me.


This is the most messed up thing I've seen in my life. I don't even think the devil himself could write up such a contract.

Today's Song of the Day is "Caprice No.4 in C minor" Performed by Itzhak Perlman from his album "Paganini 24 caprices" composed by Niccolò Paganini around 1817.

Crazy Fact: A pervading myth about Paganini is that he sold his soul to the Devil in exchange for his fearsome technique, a rumor which he delighted in and may have even started himself. During a performance his eyes would roll into the back of his head while playing, revealing the whites. His swaying stance, long unruly hair and thin, gaunt stature would add to this rumor. He played so intensely that women would faint and men would break out weeping.


I'm Sick.

and i hate it. i hate everything right now. it's like the shitty feeling in my throat is directly attached to the happy parts in my brain and draining all the energy out of them. uugh. fuck. bye.

Today's Song of the Day is "Lujon" by Henry Mancini off his 1961 album "Mr. Lucky Goes Latin."

Crazy Fact: His song "Moon River" has been recorded over 1,000 times.

The White Abyss

Sarah seems to be a fine replacement for Caleb, in so far as the adventure-bordering-on-stupidity-effect. I'm sure I could make a single work out of that if I spoke German. It would be something like adwertdungfoolacheffect. Where Caleb and I decide to go to Death Valley in August an bring insufiecent water. Sarah and I decided to walk to Cape Split from Wolfville in a blizzard. We made it to Canning, then we walked home. It was about a totally of a 32k hike in total.

At one point Sarah, started to refer to our surrounding reality as the "White Abyss" and started to generate a contaigous paranoia aura the likes I haven't felt since the Caleb days. When our survival seems to be in question I know we are doing something worth doing.

The last 2k or so of that hike was a simply a question of will. I was sure my knees were going to pop backward out of their sockets. But they didn't.

Today's Song of the Day is "Ain't No Tellin'" by Mississippi John Hurt off his 1928 album "Avalon Blues."

Crazy Fact: A scholar named Tom Hoskins discovered that Mississippi John Hurt, who hadn't been heard from musically in over 35 years, was alive and living in Avalon, MS, and sought him out, following the trail laid down in Hurt's song "Avalon Blues."

Corporate war.

"A former U.S. soldier injured in Iraq said he was forced to pay $700 for a blood-soaked Kevlar vest that was destroyed. Medics in January of 2005 removed the vest to treat the 25-year-old soldier for critical shrapnel wounds to his right arm."

That is just sick. I wish it was a joke.

Is this conflict ONLY about money? Can't they TRY to make it look like it's not. We know the US is in there over Oil not terrorism, but the could USE some PR and make an attempt at something righteous. They send US citizens, who have nothing to gain and so much to lose, to invade a foreign land to kill strangers, who have nothing to gain and so much to lose, all to serve the very rich, who have everything to gain and nothing to lose. Which isn't bad enough, then make these poor bastard PAY for the bullets (so to speak,) to pay for equiptment that is MEANT to be destroyed (by stopping bullets) that is to say, the equiptment did it's job (it kept you alive) so now you have to pay for it.

"Hey army if you didn't want it damaged you should have ordered me somewhere I could have been shot at."

So if he died would his family have got the bill?

"You son died honourably defending america, m'am. ...oh and here's a bill. we'll give you a few extra days on that as your grieving and all. okay?"

This sounds like The Company Store.

Clearly it was a mistake, but the fact that it's even possible. I couldn't imagine getting accidently sent a bill for the computer I was working on at work or mistakely being forced to pay for the paper I used in the printer, and then being re-embursed and told managment was very sorry for the mistake.

Today's Song of the Day is "C Is For Cookie" by Frank Oz off the 1974 album "C" is for Cookie."

Crazy Fact: An article in The Wall Street Journal claims that the gutteral singing style in death metal bands is called "Cookie Monster Voice".

Crazy Fact: Johnny Cash proposed marriage to June Carter during a concert in 1968.

I got this guy in my class I've never seen his face, but he is a hair tosser.

He is so weird about it too. He shakes his head like a dog and then flips at the end. What makes it so wierd is he doesn't have that much hair. I mean it's not very long and he's kind of balding. Waaay too young to be balding too. Poor little geek, the universe just keeps handing you one shitty card after another.

Today's Song of the Day is "Devils Haircut" by Beck off his 1996 album "Odelay."

Crazy Fact: He dropped out of school in tenth grade.
