early (adj.) - having to do anything prior to wanting to
flying has gotten to be such a pain in the ass, alhtough i guess it always has been. going from lafayette to san antonio, and vice versa, is especially monotonous because the flights are so short you end up spending more time checking in and boarding and taxiing and being anally probed (although i'm sure some people like that) than you actually do in the air. there's always a stopover either in houston or dallas, which i don't understand. i don't even really give a shit about the security issues - anyone trying to take down a flight from dallas to lafayette would just be doing the passengers a big favor (hope i'm not done any favors tomorrow. praise allah). not that i don't enjoy the wonrderful aerial vantage of the scenic lake charles sulphur refineries and the sabine delta. sometimes i like to drink beer in a skybar on the stopover, but i don't have enough time tomorrow, plus i don't really want to be that guy drinking beer before 10 a.m. this is texas though, so maybe that's not as much of an impropriety.

i also had to run into best buy to exchange a disfunctional xmas gift. i always hate having to meander the hoi polloi, especially the day after the day after christmas. a little reminder to myself why i hardly go out anymore.

and you know, the only reason i consider myself to be unsuccessful in life up to this point is because i'm constantly comparing my crrrent situation against some judeo-christian ideal of what life should be, i.e. the job, apartment, car, financial stability, strict moral adherence, etc. i need to start consciously changing my thought processes to exclude comparisons of such a nature. it i took my parents' goals for me (and i have a hunch what are most people's parents' goals for them) and excluded them from self-evaluation, i really have very little i disapprove of about myself. of course i'd also have to discredit some societal definitions of what's acceptable, as do we all, and i think i would be a much happier individual. none of this is easy, considering my self-image is intrinsically just an amalgomation of comparisons to "norms", which are all innate in my mind, but it's a healthy step.

my brother and i are jockeying for time on my mom's new dell. my father bought her a 20 inch flat screen monitor to go with it, which, in case you don't know, runs around a grand. add that to the wireless keyboard/mouse and the fact that he more than likely bought it at retail, and good gravy. i should start sucking up holding out for more.
i got a really cool digital camera, but it's pretty compact and i'm afraid i'm going to lose it one night while trying to take it out on the town with me to immortalize debauchery. hey me, remind myself that's what disposables are for.
i'm going to go eat ham now. that's not a euphemism. sick bastards.

t'was the night before christmas
and all through the house
everyone felt shitty
including the mouse
dad at the whorehouse
and mom smoking grass
i just settled down
for a nice piece of ass
when out on the lawn
i saw a big dick
i knew in a minute
it must be saint nick
he flew down the chimney
like a bat out of hell
i knew in a minute
the fat fucker had fell
he filled our stockings
full of pretzels and beer
and a big rubber dick
for my brother the queer
back up the chimney he went
with a thunderous fart
the fat son of a bitch
blew the chimney apart
he spat and he cursed
as he flew out of sight
"piss on you all,
have a helluva night"

and mad cow disease is finally here. i always thought the mad cow would be a terrific mascot. all you would need for a costume would be a cow mask with some painted-on slanty eyebrows. and get really good saying moo with attitude.

i'm developing this detrimental habit of sleeping from 5 or so in the evening until 11, then going back to sleep at 2, through until the afternoon, all with the aid of my wonderful friends the equate family of generic antihistamines.
everyone mark your calendars - sunday is the premiere of the e! true hollywood story on richard gere. how could it not be entertaining. alas poor lemmywinks, i knew him well.
maggie gyllenhall was on jon stewart yesterday. i've always found her utterly adorable and i know why. there's this thing that some people do when they laugh that i find very endearing, they sort of raise their forehead when they smile or laugh (if that makes sense at all), which lifts the skin in between the eyes. i wish i had a picture of what i mean. it's almost a look of surprised delight. at any rate, maggie gyllenhall, in addition to being engaging and hella cute (hella? where the fuck did that come from), posesses this feature. plus she picks some really great movies to work on, and will one day be mine.

but we don't want to address such a problem - they have the bomb.
speaking of countries supporting nuclear proliferation, very few people realize that one of the worst offenders is pakistan. they not only have an active nuclear program, but are in a perpetual nuclear standoff with india and, worst of all, sell the technology to other countries.
saudi arabia is one of the worst culprits in terms of perpetuating a friendly training environment for terrorists, but of course they're friendly big oil so we won't disturb them either.
so why iraq. because of september 11. not because saddam had anything to do with the attack (as much as everyone wants to believe it, and does), but because it gave our ever overly-stalwart administration a suitable reason to do what our leader has wanted to do for some time. and being a country of bull-headed big-guns big-tits petroleum pissing-contest brutes that we are, we believe headlines and pictures, and don't bother reading the articles. say jump and we'll say how high. especially when we think we're hitting back (which i think alot of people have been wanting to be able to do for some time, or at least been wanting to think they're justified in doing. make sense?).
right now it's a great morale booster for our friends serving in iraq that saddam was found, and for that i am very glad. really though i think his capture will ultimately be a bad thing, especially if it leads to four more years. no one will ever agree with me, and/or think me unpatriotic and/or unamerican (whatever that is anymore), but wait five years and see what the retrospective looks like.
sorry about going off on a political tirade. i had to write about something other than my non-existent existence (ha, and ha). from here until next november i'm going to be nervous about anything good that happens for bushy. we should all just bend over (i hope i'm nearby when the blonde from that virgin mobile commercial bends over). or apply for jobs with haliburton.
