Still looking for that great quote of Kerry's about him crawling through the woods on his belly using the wind to "Decoy" the deer. Hmmmm and he says he's a hunter......? Right. Sure glad this guy didn't get into office. Posted by Hello

Guards and J-O-B

Ahh, its time for a guard drill. Haven't been to one in a couple months. First ones I've ever split subbed. Wasn't much to miss anyway. Yet, with a deployment coming up I'm sure we need to start training *rolls eyes. As if a 6 month train up isn't enough.

First I don't have enough job options, and now perhaps too many. Two juvenile places I applied at have called me to interview. I interviewed at one this afternoon, and they want me pending a backround check. The other wants me to interview tomorrow. I am also looking at applying at a mental facility. It pays more and would hopefully be full-time. Choices choices choices.

What a beautifull day out today. The sun is shining and it feels like a great day to be alive. We had the first BBQ of the year.

RPG's Paintball, and the like

Last Friday I had my first experience with an RPG (Role playing Game). I got together with therick, and Wiggs. Grey was supposed to come, but he had to bow out for good reason. Anyhow, this particular RPG was RIFTS. Set sometime in the future, we don't know when exactly, or what happened to the earth, except Rifts or tears have appeared in the worlds very fabric, allowing everything from alians, monsters and demi-gods, to creatures of old, elves, dwarves etc. Basically, if you can think of a character, you can be it. There are out-posts of civilization here and there, but not much inbetween. Your weapon arsonal could be a plasma gun, or a long bow, or magic etc.
To shorten the story up, we spent 3 hours rolling up our characters. I picked a human merc. We got 4 hours of gaming in. What great fun!!! I tried to explain it to my wife, but when she found out all it was, was dice and paper, she thought it was boring. It does sound boring, but wow did I have fun.
Perhaps I have found an outlet to my occasional aggression :) nothing like smoking someone with a rail-gun.

I had the faintest inkling in my head that I wanted to get out and play some paintball. It didn't last long however. I think it shall be a very light year of playing. I probably won't get out until things dry up, and even then, I think I will be limiting myself to playing out at the south field, and my folks place. No more speedball or tourneys for me for a while.

Thank God spring is uppon us!!!

Clear as a bell now

Mort said,

""Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion"It is not as though Bush is saying everyone should be a certain religion. That would be unconsitutional. This clause is in the first amendment because one of the biggest reasons we left England was because the King forced his people to be in the Anglican Church. Basically the government cannot decide that catholicism or luthernism will be the "national religion." And notice that the words "separation of church and state" do not appear in this amendment at all."

There, now I have it recorded so I can copy and paste when I need too. So many people get those mixed up. Never does the phrase "seperation of church and state" appear in the constitution.

Simple life

Why is it that the poet writes about war as a glorious thing? What is it in human nature that thrills us so much about battle? I think its human nature. Why is that? Being perfectly honest, I get an adreneline rush just thinking about combat. I have never been in combat. Why does it intrigue me so?

On a different note. Sometimes I find myself wishing for a simple life. I say wishing, but at the same time I don't know how much I really want it. I LOVE technology. I'm on my laptop all the time. However, it might just be the tool that fits the times.
I was thinking today how I would love to be running through the primitive forest wearing buck-skins and brandishing bow and spear. No polotics, no taxes, no govornment.
I guess that is why I am so intrigued by movies like "The Postman" "The Village" etc. It's the thought that it might just be that way once again. Maybe I'll take a trip to Alaska, to see places still untouched.......

This is dedicated to Wicked Cracka. State your worst day ever, in multiples of three things. The third thing MUST be a tube of KY jelly. Don't worry about it if you are confused, its an inside thing anyway. But here, I'll give an example. "My worst day ever, a bowling pin, a five pound sledge hammer, and a tube of KY jelly. Posted by Hello
