Don’t Be A Victim

Victims generally feel that something bad has happened to them and they, themselves, are in no way responsible for it. Now, authentic victims certainly do exist – let’s be perfectly clear on that. However, in a book called, “A Nation of Victims,” Charles Sykes points out that far too many of us have grown adept at finding someone else to blame for our problems and ignoring our own personal responsibility for them.

When you give up accountability for any aspect of your life, you also give up control. When you give up control, you’re basically saying, “There’s nothing I can do about it. There’s no hope of improvement.” What kind of example are you setting for the young people in your life?

catty nuptial talk about Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley.

Gamera! Gamera!
Gamera is really neat.
Gamera is filled with meat.
We’ve been eating Gamera!

Gamera’s enchantment still grows.
He fills our hearts with love.
Gamera’s the latest thing.
He fills our hearts with spring, spring, spring!
Anytime you want some moonbeams,
Gamera is the thing.

Gamera is really neat,
He is filled with turtle meat.
We all love you, GAMERA!!!

(Random Scotto factoid… Newton was nearly named Gamera.)

hey! Commander USA!

Surfing around LJ, and I see the same idea trends popping up again.

There are some people that assume that think “All men will cheat, given the chance”. Um, no. I believe that what may be true of some, or even most, is rarely true for all.

I am a man.

I’ve had some opportunities here and there, but I’ve never cheated, nor have I even wanted to. I find the idea to be wholly repugnant. The thought of breaking a trust to have some sex? That doesn’t fly.

That does not make me a homosexual, a coward, or weak.

It makes me loyal and true to myself, as well as her.

That’s all I have to say about that. /gump

In other news…

I want a computer like orlando jones in the time machine. (I just watched it the other night… I downloaded that and the unreleased fantastic four movie. I’d love to get my hands on the Dr Doom mask from that.)

I’m drawing “crop circles” in Newton’s fur with my finger… he seems to be enjoying it. He’s purring like a demented lawnmower, anyhow.
