25th December 2009

2:25pm: Merry Christmas, everyone.
O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our dear savior's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till he appeared, and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angels' voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
O night divine! O night, O night divine.
Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts, by his cradle we stand.
So led by light of a star so sweetly gleaming,
Here come the wise men from Orient land.
The king of kings lay thus in lowly manger;
In all our trials, born to be our friend.
He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger.
Behold your king! Before him lowly bend!
Behold your king! Behold your king.
Truly he taught us to love one another.
His law is love, and his gospel is peace.
Chains shall he break, for the slave,he is our brother;
And in his name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy, in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise his holy name.
Christ is the Lord! O praise his name forever.
His power and glory, evermore proclaim.
His power and glory! Evermore proclaim.

 The other day . . . I was walking in the park . . . after lunch.

When I saw this juggler.



 She was very good.

And the weird thing was . . . the more balls she had in the air . . . the easier she made it look.



 It was a feeling I knew . . .

. . . like deja vu.

I've been eating cheese toast.
It's good,
but too good
for cheese toast.

5:11am:
Which American accent do you have?

Neutral

You're not Northern, Southern, or Western, you`re just plain -American-. Your national identity is more important than your local identity, because you don`t really have a local identity. You might be from the region in that map, which is defined by this kind of accent, but you could easily not be. Or maybe you just moved around a lot growing up.

3:48pm: From Neese's Website
From http://www.neesesausage.com/products/default.htm

Regular Sausage This is the original recipe from Mr. Thede's wife, Annie Smith Neese. It hasn't changed in 100 years, and it's still delivered fresh every day and contains no preservatives or additives.
Hot Sausage For those who like a little zestier taste we made Neese's Hot Sausage. Just like all our sausage, it's fresh, never frozen and totally without preservatives.
 Extra Sage Sausage This is our original recipe with a smooth taste and just enough sage added to please sage lovers
Liver Pudding  A fully cooked southern favorite with our special spices. It's 96% fat free and, believe it or not, a favorite of kids who love it on a sandwich or warmed in the pan for breakfast. By the way, it doesn't taste like pudding and it doesn't look like liver.
Liver MushThis is a regional variation on Liver Pudding and it has a different recipe, including spices and seasonings. For some folks in western North Carolina there is no substitute. 
Country ScrappleLots of folks think this is a northeastern product, but in fact it's amazing how much Neese's Scrapple people in the South buy. It's also rewarding to hear people from the North tell us how good our Scrapple is.
C-LoafThere are lots of folks who don't know what C-Loaf is, but if you grew up on the farm you know it and love it. Try some even if you live in town. 
Souse  This old-time favorite has a flavor some swear you can't find anywhere else in the world. But you can find it in your favorite supermarket.

And why does he think my name is Jimmy?

6:31pm: A Science Fiction Tale
In the year 2024, a slower-than-light arkship sets off with a cargo of 14,000 Chinese, 9,500 Native Americans, and 12,005 Russians. They set forth on a 103 year journey to an Earth-like planet just past Alpha Centauri.

By the time they arrived, they had all become Irish.

9:14pm: Uh . . . huh . . .
My roommate just informed me that "Your Dr Pepper cannot save you now!"

He's been saying stuff like this all night! Man.

I think when he took a nap, earlier, some great force, ancient and stupid, moved into his mind.

17th January 2009

3:50am: Today I learned the following:
Commenting on a Livejournal post expressing disagreement is trolling. No attack needs to be made, nor does any implication of the post being 'dumb' need to occur. Simply disagreeing and explaining why will suffice.

If I am white, and I express any sort of opinion at all, I am "jizzing" my "privilege" all over the place. One must be currently oppressed, or have been oppressed in the recent past, to have a valid opinion.

It is not racist for someone to read something I wrote, then dismiss it entirely while making sure to mention that I'm white, as that fact obviously negates any possible validity my post may have had. In fact, by calling me white, the person is simply stating the well known fact that all white people are ethnocentric racist bigots, and as such, anything any of us write, say, or believe is apparently invalid because of this fact. (I assume that's the implication, at least, otherwise why throw in the word "white" into a list of insults about my post?)

From this, I can assume that hating white people (or at least dismissing any sort of primarily white Western culture as entirely offensive) is the minimum that a person can do and still live a conscionable life.



PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT! WHITE PEOPLE ONLY READ PAST THIS POINT!

This is urgent information for all the white people I know. Pass it on to your white friends, as soon as possible. The colored folk saw through our facade of tolerance! They know how racist we really are! They realized that all our "progressiveness" was a trick to distract them, while we systematically appropriated and destroyed their culture! Quick! We have to ruin their history and beliefs faster! We have to steal their culture and force our own, superior culture onto them, to remove their sense of identity! What they want doesn't matter, we have all the control, here. They and their culture will be assimilated and destroyed! We've got them convinced, for the moment, that they're lower than we are, more base than us white people, less worthy than the mighty Caucasian race. If they'll start thinking they're our equals, we'll be in danger of losing our White way of life!

Our privilege must be protected at all costs!

Remember, fellow white people: When you see someone who is not white (this includes Irish, they're only fake-white), steal their culture immediately. It can be tricky, but if you do it right, they'll instantly collapse to the ground, drooling and babbling incoherently. Within a few days they should die from exposure.

We'll defeat the non-white threat yet!

Current Mood: completely fucking insane

8th January 2009

4:03am: And I'm awake.
It's 4 AM. I have officially been attempting to fall asleep for three hours, now. I've had similar problems all week.

It's annoying. And it's tending to mess up my plans for the day, when I don't wake up until noon or later. I could wake up earlier, but with no specific plans for the day, it seems like I'd be hard pressed to keep myself from taking a nap come afternoon. And that would just further kick my sleep schedule in the teeth.

And here I promised a pretty girl I'd actually sleep tonight.

Stupid brain.

Sleep now, please.

Be sure to stay for the moral, at the end! :D

30th December 2008

5:03pm: I've got a bluetooth headset. I love it. It's insanely useful, and I use it all the time at work, at home, or where ever.

Around the little speaker, there was a rubber ring attached that I assume was there for comfort.

About two months ago, the rubber broke in one place, and began to hang down a little. It became more and more annoying, as I tried to bend it back up to where it belonged. Everytime I wore it, I had to push the little hanging piece of rubber back to where it should be. About three weeks ago, it became so loose that the loose rubber would push it slightly off my ear fairly easily. I was constantly adjusting the headset, trying to keep it where it belonged, constantly pushing the rubber back up to its rightful place. If I was lucky, I could wedge it between the headset and my ear, and it would stay for ten or fifteen minutes before falling back down.

Yesterday, I finally gave up, and tore the rubber off completely.

It's completely comfortable to wear, again. It feels just fine, and it no longer tries to fling itself from my ear. I've had no problems, since then.
11:45am: So I'm watching The 700 Club for some reason. And wow, everyone on this show speaks at the exact same, slightly slowly than usual speed, and with the same incredibly even cadence, and in the same almost half-whisper.

And they keep telling me to pray things that I don't think are very healthy to pray!

But whoa, this speaking . . .

After writing this post, the woman who was speaking moved from "talking about Jesus" into "trying to sell me something." Her voice sped up to at least twice as fast, and she began speaking in (what I would consider) a human tone of voice. It's almost so relieving that I want to buy the thing just to reward her for speaking normally!
