My Own Effort at Self-Expression

Broken dreams
Twisted lies
Tears of pain I can’t deny

A clouded mind
A faded soul
An emptiness I can’t control

A tattered heart
Painted blue
I’m helpless Lord what can I do?

A darkened core
Filled with strife
Your shadow overtook my life

Shattered hopes
Misspent years
I wish I could hold back the tears

Wasted time
Thrown askew
I’ll never get that back from you


Candy is evil!!!!!

I once ‘dated’ a guy who was a witch. I wonder if he’d let me have some of those white-chocolate KitKats before he infuses them all with demons…

Halloween Candy is Evil!!!

Liberty and justice for all? He doesn’t think so…

I saw this on tv this morning and just wanted to share it:

10-Year-old won’t pledge allegiance to a country that discriminates against gays

I found it encouraging to see that an elementary-school student cares enough about the way this country is run and how people are treated to take a stand like this…or, more accurately, a seat. When I was ten, I was more concerned about my crush-du-jour and collecting all of the My Little Pony dolls. Now here’s a kid picking through the lines of a pledge a lot of us said by rote and actually *thinking* about what it says. If you remember your childhood, ten is an age where a lot of us are very concerned with what others think of us and would be too mortified to do something that attracted that much unpopular attention, especially in a conservative state. He is taking the time to be concerned with how other people are treated in a fight he doesn’t have a dog in, something I could certainly learn from.

Hats off, kid. Hats off.


A Bunch Of Random Links

Spending obscene amounts of time on the internet and having no life isn’t as easy as it looks. 🙂 It’s pretty hard work, sorting through all of the insanely funny, random videos to find those worth sharing with your friends. Here are the fruits of this past weekend’s search…

Oh, and, for those who have…what’s the word…jobs, these are not safe for work.

These are from a hidden-camera show from Australia called The Chaser’s War On Everything. If I had my own show, this is what it would be like.

Now, come on, you can’t tell me you’ve never wished you had one of these things!
Pedestrian Rage

I *so* want to write a ticket to my ex-boyfriend for being such a jerk…how much should I fine him? The cost of the therapy sessions? 🙂
Wanker Number Plates

Actually, maybe I should just have him join this gang, God knows he needs to:
The Bra Boys

And now for something completely different:

For all of us Mac people:

Make an app to scoop the catbox and I’m sold:
There’s an App for anything, literally

There’s an app for what???

There’s a Hack for that

Now you’ll have this stuff in your head all day. You’re welcome. 🙂


Some of my favorite quotes

I’m a bit bored today and can’t think of anything else to write, so I thought I would share some of my favorite quotes.

“I have three things I’d like to say today. First, while you were sleeping last night, 30,000 kids died of starvation or diseases related to malnutrition. Second, most of you don’t give a shit. What’s worse is that you’re more upset with the fact that I said shit than the fact that 30,000 kids died last night.”  – Tony Campolo…author, speaker, activist and Baptist pastor

“You can safely assume that you’ve created God in your own image, when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” – Ann Lamott

“I once shot a man just to watch him die. Then I got distracted and missed it.” – Kids in the Hall

“There’s probably no One True Church.  Now stop worrying and enjoy serving God.”- My friend Veronica Zundel, in response to an advertisement for atheism

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” – Helen Keller

“Dear enemy-may the Lord hate you and all your kind, may you be turned orange in hue, and may your head fall off at an awkward moment.” – Edmund, BlackAdder

“Preach the gospel, always. If necessary, use words.” – St. Francis

“They could build monuments to your self-centeredness.”  -‘Wilson’, House

“The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, and walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.” – Brennan Manning

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”  – Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“You are the son of a clerk, I am the son of a count. I’m not supposed to want to be you.” – The Count of Monte Christo

“What the world needs now is another folk singer, like I need a hole in my head.” – Cracker

“Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.   On the contrary:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” – Romans 12:17-21

“Go sell crazy someplace else. We’re all stocked up here.” –  As Good As It Gets

“And we know that God causes everything to come together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.”  – Romans 8:28

“In the essentials, unity; in the non-essentials, liberty; in all things, love.” – St. Augustine

“Every time I come to this city, some guy picks me up at the bus station, takes me to a Leafs game, gets me pissed, and then tries to blow me. Why can’t people like me for me?” – Kids in the Hall

“People who speak in metaphor should shampoo my crotch.” –  As Good As It Gets

“Get busy living, or get busy dying’. – The Shawshank Redemption
