Back again! did you miss me?

Looks like September is here! Time to pay my rent again, and spend some dollars, yen and ducats on the huge pile of people I know that have September birfdaze. Some biggies I like to splurge on this month… *edited out gift info, as they might be reading this!* Rest assured that buddy Kevin (boss at work, good guy), little bro Derek (who turns 28 this year! yipe! He’s my baby brother, man!), Suzy my driver, Mojo the Finn, and Newt’s 11 month anniversary will all be getting nice prizes for being all such wunnerful dollies.

Now that I’m looking at my Calendar, I see that my Peace river trip is only a month away (10/6-10/9) canoeing, camping and just good times all in all. I’m in such a better mood today, it’s loopy. We’ll see how I feel, the closer to byebye time I get tonight. will I leave at a decent hour? or will I have to chug through another late nighter to get stuff accomplished for the long weekend! I’ll have monday off, hoo hoo hooray! (no hips, thanks.) Full weekend, Fred is coming down, so I can tell him about the stuff at work changing around, going to the norton museum, starting a new character in RPG-ville, a 1930’s game detective, supernatural, semi-powered. Everway on Sunday? Visting little bro on monday? Argh. I’ll need to do laundry in there sometime too. Maybe tomorrow morning, before the ball gets rolling. Heaven knows I don’t want to have 6 loads just sitting there for eternity, crying in the corner how I never wear them anymore.

Well, that was a ramble. Will Robby come with me to the norton? Will janedeau want me to unlink from her? who knows?

Ok, now i’m putting an age cap on my viewers.

Sing it with me now!

There’s no need to fear, Unnnnderdog is here!

oooh,a,oooh,a,ooh,a,a,oooh….

When criminals in this world appear,
And break the laws that they should fear,
And frighten all who see or hear,
The cry goes up both far and near for
Underdog!
(Underdog),
Underdog!
(Underdog).

Speed of lightning, roar of thunder,
Fighting all who rob or plunder
Underdog, Underdog.

When in this world the headlines read
Of those who’s hearts are filled with greed
And rob and steal from those in need.
To right this wrong with blinding speed goes
Underdog,
Underdog,
Underdog,
Underdog.

Speed of lightning, roar of thunder,
Fighting all who rob or plunder
Underdog, Underdog.

powers of good helped you all, I came within inches of embedding a sound file of me singing this. thank me.

Toto! come back toto!

AFRICA
I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She’s coming in 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way,
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies.
He turned to me as if to say,
‘Hurry boy, it’s waiting there for you.’

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what’s right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serangetti
I seek to cure what’s deep inside, frightened of this thing that I’ve become

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Hurry boy, she’s waiting there for you

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa, I passed some rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa, I passed some rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

d’oh!

Well, the sharks have swum around full circle, and are coming back for a second bite.

No Thai for scotto tonight. He has to stay late at work, and make things all better… I’ll be lucky to get out of this joint by midnight, let alone 8. piffle. Looks like a pizza night. shoot.

Just as well, I’m sort of beat, and would prefer to be fresh for Jen’s chat.

{You can only see this in the reply zone! secret stuff! If you can see this, tell me… I’m curious! I’ll make you a balloon animal and everything!} edit, lj code changed, now everoyne can see it.

ok, I’m a little late for this bandwagon, but here I am.

Hark – the oracle speaks! A bolt of lightning falls from the sky! SHAZAAM! As the smoke clears, the hidden deity in you emerges and is revealed to be:

EROS, God of Love.

As a devotee of this long-neglected virtue, you are a committed romantic. You prefer to savor the joys of seduction before you step into the bedroom. This quality makes you incredibly attractive to women, who seem to melt in your presence. They sense your strong character and respect your ideals. They dream of stealing you away and making dreamy love to you all day long. Not to say you wouldn’t be happy to oblige, but you want to make sure that there’s some emotional or intellectual compatibility between you and your partner to carry the relationship along. By the time you are ready to show them your godly performance, they’re hooked. You take sex seriously and show your lucky woman a passion that has only existed in her wildest dreams. You are probably an emotionally expressive and sensitive person whose pleasure comes from pleasing others. Your chivalrous ways have probably earned you a following of fans and a trail of satisfied mortals in your wake.

ok, I’m all better now.

My anger has dissipated. I still am not keen on being lied to. that is one of my buttons. stupid lies don’t bother me. fish stories, bragging, whatever, fine. If you say “I am there for you, I will cover your back, you can depend on me” and then go out to lunch when I am being thrown to the wolves, well. If I live through the being eaten alive, don’t ask me for any favors.

A co-worker just did that to me. I needed him, told him so, he said the above, and proceeded to leave 4 minutes after saying so. garrumph.

If you can’t or won’t do something, don’t commit to me that you will. I know things come up. but “Life happens”, or “something better came along” doesn’t cut it. Lunch is not a life changing circumstance. A death did not occur.

I’m now officailly over it, but will never trust that person with anything of value again, and if he asks, I’ll let him know why. Unprofessional and unkind behavior rarely goes unpunished.

His report card now reads “does not play well with others” in my mental gradebook.

Thank you to the sweethearts who came to my rescue with hugs and loves by the way.

onto more happy things, maybe thai tonight will happen, although I’m not interested in griping now that I’ve vented here. I will be a dutiful listener though, and tell all the lovely stories of recent memory, like about my crush, and how newton plays fetch with paperwads, and how cool the new godzilla movie is.

Welcome to my wall scrawls.
