Well, She called me at midnight, apparently when I called her the last time, she was with the gang at the bookstore, and I sort of blindsided her. Final result? Me no tell, she no tell. I think all will be cool with it.
Well, I called her, and she would just as soon not know what I read. Fair enough… I’ll make a point of not reading that particular journal from now on. Her POV is, if she had wanted me to know, she’d have told me anything that I might’ve read. My only negative comment on that is, why publish to the net? It’s bound to get back to you sooner or later, unless your only hang out with the Amish. But, that said, I will make a point of not reading anything in my region if this happens again. I should’ve known… ah well, I was honest about it, and made my gesture, hopefully this won’t hurt our friendship.
I have no idea how it is that I manage to keep stumbling over people I know locally on a flippy journal site that is totally international. Now I’ve gone and read something that I don’t imagine a third party friend would have wanted me to hear unless he told me himself. I guess the quickest, most honest thing to do is to tell her that I saw her page. Nuts. The goofy thing is, I wonder if she’ll read this before I get to talk to her about it… it’s only 10:30 now… I think it’s still early enough to call her. yup. Man… how do I get into these situations?
Sakes! well, at least I have a picture up now! I’ll get the knack of layout and design slowly, but surely. (Heck, I haven’t even d/led the client proggie yet… doing it now. My poor net has been way slow tonight… 🙁 Upside, Newt seems to like his medicine and is eating well. I have his kitten pix up on the web… grown up (7mos will be around later.) Here’s a link to a slow loading image of him as a babe.
So, does everyone on this silly journalspace have a webcam but me? I was thinking aobut setting up a cam at the house, if just to see if I can do it, and to keep an Eye on my fine orange fuzzy friend Newton. Anyone out there have any suggestions for setting it up?
Just met Mimi online, and she seems to be really nice. 🙂 Go say hey to a fellow Floridian!
Thanks to sunu-sku for befriending me so quickly! A swell person!!
My first attempt at mixing html! wish me luck!

Scott von Berg – aka Scottobear, Sasquatch, Rev. Scotto, and Mongo… among other things.
Born Feb 2, 1969, 6’5ish”, brown hair, blue eyes. If you’ve seen this man feel free to approach, as he’s generally unarmed, and rarely dangerous. Doesn’t eat animals, and votes regularly. No tattoos, piercings, or any other form of ritual scarification, identifying marks are a 5 inch scar at the base of the back from a spinal operation in 1994. Likes to Read, Camp, and talk forever about any manner of topics. Social activities include gaming (Cards, RPGs, Boardgames, you name it.), trips to the coffeeshop,any sort of Film, and trips to the beach for a nighttime cookout / drum circle / gab-fest.
I have two eyes, two ears, two arms and two legs and at least once a day I like to stuff dead plants into a hole in my head. I enjoy the presence of children, (any happy folk, actually), nice scenery, especially rivers and hills. Mountains and caves are good, but rare here in sea-level Fort Lauderdale, Florida.(Actually Pompano, but folks recognise FTL!) I recently adopted a cat, Newton, (10/21/99, estimated age at 3 weeks, orange tabby, male) but am not a ‘cat person’, more of an ‘animal person’.
How flattering that you came by! Thanks for taking a moment of your time to peek into my life There’ll be more about me in the here and now in the journal section. Below sums up my basic feelings.
A quote from Bill Hicks. A smart, funny, dead man.
You’ve been fantastic and I hope you enjoyed it. There is a point, is there a point to all of this? Let’s find a point. Is there a point to my act? I would say there is.
I have to.
The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud and it’s fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, “hey – don’t worry, don’t be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride…”
And we… kill those people.
“Shut him up.”
“We have a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up. Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and my family. This just has to be real.”
Just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn’t matter because: It’s just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defences each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.
Thank you very much, you’ve been great.
Well! good news! Looks like April has an interview tomorrow with barnies for a Job! hoody-hoo… hopefully this will raise her from the funk she’s been in the last week or so. I’ve been having trouble connecting with other pals, especially the EMAGE crowd, it’s been easier to keep track of the hippies and the Dan/Rob squad. I’m really mostly worried about losing contact with Brian/Heather… It’s extra bonus difficult, somehow. (I’ve totally lost touch with Ray. Where has he gone off to?) Alex has rendered himself invisible to AIM, so who knows when I’ll get to communicate w/ him. (I’ve actually had more convo’s with Mike!) Easiest to gab with seems to be Robby, of all things… He’s a cool guy, just surprising, as Heather is the “Chatty-cathy” of our clench there. Hmm… I suppose I should pop up an introduction to who I am, as well as all these other folks.
Hi Kids! Still getting my stuff in gear for the live journal thing… Once I polish a pic, and get more than 17 seconds to type to you, we’ll be good to go! I hope you folks are having a better weekend than I’ve had… We lost one kitten a week ago to an intestinal parasite (We miss you, Fritz!) and now, Newton, my big orange pal has the same thing. Got him to the doc in a decent amount of time, though, so hopefully after the 10 days worth of meds he’ll be feeling better.
I’ve got to get going, more to follow this evening though, for sure.
Love, Luck, and Laughter to you all.
