Been awhile....

First off, let me say that McAllan's is what I plan to drink when I get home. I'm out travelling, seeing somethings, doing some stuff. Miss being able to park my happy ass on the couch and watch some trashy reality tv with the little woman.

Second, I like what I do, and I'm glad I've gotten to see as much of the world as I have. Who would have known growing up in that hick town that I'd have come all this way.

Third, some places the stars are so brilliant you just can't help but walk around with your head inclined skywards.

Chivas and Mr. Walker

So, I've started thinking about growing up in my drinking habits. I went to the ABC sto tonight and decided I would by something different. So I invested in Johnny Walker Black Label, Chivas Regal, Knob Creek, and Courvoisier. I'm not sure exactly the best way to drink them. I do know I want to stay away from mixed drinks in this foray, so I have just had Johnny on the rocks and Chivas with a bit of water. I liked them both, although Johnny kicked me a bit with the first sip. Haven't determined the best setting to enjoy both in, but I can definitely say that these two whiskies are not something I have the tolerance to drink alot of and remember what happened the next day. SO for now. its time to try the Courvoisier.

Your Dominant Intelligence is Logical-Mathematical Intelligence

You are great at finding patterns and relationships between things.
Always curious about how things work, you love to set up experiments.
You need for the world to make sense - and are good at making sense of it.
You have a head for numbers and math ... and you can solve almost any logic puzzle.

You would make a great scientist, engineer, computer programmer, researcher, accountant, or mathematician.

Taking a hand and holding on.

I am slowly realizing that I can't always stand on my own two feet. I was raised that as a man you picked yourself up and moved on. Overall this isn't a bad ideology. But what happens when all the sucking it up and moving on comes crashing back? You get to a point in your life when you have moved yourself right out of contact with people that care enough to actually help you deal with your issues. I end up with pent up anger and feelings of lost opportunities that I carry around and will not leave me alone til I face them. Finally I am starting to face over 30 yrs of moving on and hiding how I feel deep inside. It isn't fun, but it might just save me from an early death due to stress.


I can say honestly that I am deeply saddened to have learned that Steve Irwin will no longer be sharing his love for the planet's creatures with us. Thank you Steve. You will be missed.

Two things...

From reading the news tonight I just got bad vibes all around.

Apparently an opposition leader 'escaped' from prison in Venezueala. Seems mysterious. I smell a real bonafide coup coming.

Jill Carroll. Something about her doesn't sit well with me. There are quite a few links on the net calling her a fraud. I'm leaning that way. Hopefully I am wrong.

What do we have to offer the world?

I love living in the US of A, but after an afternoon spent at the local megamall the question arose, "What exactly makes us so great a people? Are we a great people? What do we have culturally that is so great?" If a slice of the population that I observed massing back and forth between what is trendy and not trendy is any indication of where we are headed and what we offer the world, then it ain't looking good. I saw many faces that looked oblivious to what was outside of their small world of themselves. Granted I am also guilty of thinking the world revolves around me from time to time, but I am capable of stopping and noticing that it doesn't, occasionally. I don't fear for my country so much, because I am an ardent believer that we still have the power to rise up to any challenge. I'm from the South, so that's pretty much ingrained into my being.
Living in the nation's capital tends to make it hard to miss daily world events. Its one thing or another here. But get outside of the area by say 35-50 miles and you might as well be in Kansas. It seems to me that people do not realize how what happens in this city really affects them. Maybe its because they are so far down the chain or they just don't care. Or maybe I'm the one who is missing something. Ok, rambled enough for the evening.
