I'm So Smart (NOT)

Your IQ score is 139

Your Intellectual Type is Insightful Linguist. This means you are highly intelligent and have the natural fluency of a writer and the visual and spatial strengths of an artist. Those skills contribute to your creative and expressive mind.

Yeah right. So how come I'm not rich and famous? Or at least rich. Or famous.

All my life (well, for as long as I can remember) I've heard things like "your so smart", "you have so much potential", yada, yada, yada. I'm sorry but I just don't see it. Don't get me wrong, I don't think I'm dumb, or even slow, but I don't think I'm all that in the brains department. First of all I can't spell for sheit. It's all I can do to balance a checkbook. I think I'm just an average person, struggling to make it through each day the best I can.
I do think I have the unique ability to see things that other people don't (no I don't mean ghost). I can spot a liar a mile away. I can read between the lines. I am a realist. I don't think anyone would ever call me an ostrich . Although in an attempt to ignore the elephants in my life, I can be a bit of a woodpecker. Okay, maybe a LOT of a woodpecker.
Maybe my intellect lies not in booksense but in common sense. I may not always call a spade a spade, but I damn sure know one when I see it.
That is why you should all listen to me when I tell you "I know what I'm talking about".
So, now, about this whole Presidential election thing....

Wanna test your IQ? Go ahead try it !!

About that Movie/Film/Documentary

Well, heck, everybody is talking about it so I might as well jump in with my two cents. I haven't seen the movie yet. I have the the grandmonster for a month and the only movies I'll be seeing while he's here will be of the Harry/Shrek ilk. No problem really. I'd rather wait until the crowds die down anyway. And crowds there are. I mean lines. Long lines. Every showing sold OUT. A friend of my son's who works at one of the theaters said they have people coming back the second and third times, bringing new people with them each time. So clearly there's something about Fahrenheit 9/11.( Fahrenheit 9/ll Breaks Records)
Yes, I know the 'clips' we see on tv make the film appear to very anti-Bush. However more than one reviewer has commented that the film is not at all complimentary to Liberals and Democrats either. Apparently Moore is an equal opportunity disser.
One of the most interesting things I've read about this movie (or is it a documentary) is something I found over at Whiskey Bar .
"For years now, Limbaugh, Coulter and their inferior imitations have been passing off their slanted misreadings, unproven allegations and flimsy lies as factual reporting. When caught in an outright lie or smear, they either ignore the evidence, or - like Limbaugh - retreat into the phony defense of arguing that all they're doing is expressing a subjective opinion. "I'm just in the entertainment business," Rush likes to say.

Well, now there's someone on the left who knows how to play their game, and play it brilliantly. Moore may be an egomaniac, and a huckster showman in the best (or worst) tradition of P.T. Barnum and Walter Winchell, but man, he's effective. He's learned to play the mainstream media like a Stradivarius.

No wonder the right wingers are scared of Moore - he's even better than they are at using the media as an unwilling amplifier. Which is why all the conservative caterwauling and all disapproving tut tuts from the "responsible" press have only helped ensure Fahrenheit 9/11 a wider distribution.

In other words, Moore's managed to break the code. He's figured out how to sell an angry radical (or at least semi-radical) message to a mass audience.

That's a major accomplishment. And if the end result isn't exactly my idea of a civilized political discourse (I'll reserve judgement for now) it clearly is a powerful and successful example of fighting fire with fire."

Realistically the bottom line is do you have an open mind and are you willing to take the chance that you might see something that would lead to to take a second look? Or are you afraid to open yourself up to the possibility that maybe there are things you don't know and should.
I read consevative's blogs everyday. I listen to O'Reilly, Imus, Scarborough, and even ocassionally even to Limbaugh. Not because I agree with them but because I always want to know what their thinking and what their take is on any given subject. There is always the possibility that they will offer up something from which I can learn. I have such a thirst for knowledge that I don't disallow any point of view. Maybe that is the true secret to my so called intellect. Maybe it's not that I'm all that smart, but that I am willing to continue to listen and learn.
Okay, that's my Sunday Sermon. You can all wake up and go home to Sunday dinner now.

Pass the Pity Please

Why is it that some people just can't get it? They continue to blame others for their own personal failures. Their inability to maintain any semblance of a long term relationship/friendship is always the fault of the other party. Well, here's today's clue. "If you have lived in at least a dozen or more households in the past five years, and every single time your housemates have evicted you because you are a bitch to get along with..., them maybe you should consider the possibility that you really are a bitch." Don't come whining and bellyaching on my doorstep because you can't get along with other people. You don't get along with me so well either. Don't expect me to join your pity party because once again someone has seen the light and is walking toward it and away from you. Enough is enough!
Ain't life grand when children come home to Mama? I think I'll run away this time. Maybe it's time to take that cross-country trip I've been dreaming about.

Friday Five

I haven't done the Friday Five in awhile, so I thought I'd give it a go today. Well, guess what? No one has their FF up yet. Not anyone I could find anyway. So I'll just make up my own.

1. Do you remember how old you were when you discovered your parents were sexually active?

2. Do you remember who was the first in your crowd to loose their virginity?

3. Do you remember where and when you had your first kiss?

4. Do you remember your first love?

5. If your a parent, do you remember when you first discovered your child was sexually active? If your kids aren't that old yet, how old do you hope they will be when they do become sexually active. If you don't have kids, how about a sister or brother?

All The Pretty Young Things

I guess by now everybody's heard, Mary Kate Olsen is battling anorexia. This really makes me sad. I love those little girls. I have watched them go from being adorable little babies to toddlers, pre-teens, and teenagers. It's almost like they're family.
They always seemed like they had their heads screwed on right. The fame and the money didn't appear to affect them the way it has so many other child stars. It looked as if they'd made the transition from child star to credible actors. Without falling victim to the usual drugs and alchool problems.
I've often wondered what it must be like for them. Always being in the spotlight. Having your every move documented for the world to see. They've been acting since before they could talk. How do they even know when their not 'on stage' so to speak?
Anorexia is a serious disease. I hope and pray that Mary Kate will be able to get the help she needs in order to overcome this.
Another pretty young woman that I've seen some mean catty things said about is Paris Hilton. I'll admit at first I too bought into the idea that she was just another spoiled brat rich kid, who had no idea how to behave in public. Then I started watching the The Simple Life. Yeah, at first that kind of offended me. It looked like this was just another attempt to poke fun at country folks. Of course after one episode I realized that while the show might be making fun of country folks , the real butt of the joke was none other that Paris and Nicki. Those two girls made complete fools of themselves. Yet they took it all in stride, and didn't seem to mind that the whole country was laughing our collective asses off at them. I can still see Paris trying to milk that cow. Or chasing Nicki around with cow poop.
Now there's The Simple Life2. How on earth can two young women drive a PINK pickup truck, pulling a shiney silver trailer, across country without a dime to their name? Beats me. But that's what they're doing. Paris hopped right in that truck, and took off. Never having driven a big assed truck like that one, much less pulled a trailer. They had to beg for money for the toll road (Nicki score $20 bucks!!!) and gas. Nicki does most of the 'begging'. She's good at it too. Paris is a little more reserved but you can see she has a great sense of humor. They never take themselves too seriously. Even when Paris got dumped off a horse and almost seriously hurt, she never whined and gave up. After a trip to the hospital she went right back to doing the show. That's a trooper in my book.
They aren't doing this for money. Paris Hilton has more money than she will ever need. I'm sure Nicki (her father is Lionel Richey) is pretty well set for life as well. They aren't doing it for fame, they were already pretty much media darlings. So they have to be doing it for the sheer fun of it. Fun? Being laughed at? Made fun of? This is fun? Well you have to admit they must have a pretty strong sense of self and of their own identity. They could be doing most anything they desired. Instead they are entertaining me (and millions of others) on Wednesday nights. You gotta love em. Well, at least I do. Kinda like the way I do the Olsen girls.
I know with all that's wrong in the world today, maybe it seems kind of silly to suggest that we all say a prayer for Mary Kate. But maybe that's why there's so much wrong. We've stopped seeing each person as an individual who needs love and understanding and started seeing people in groups. I guess it's easier to hate/distrust or dislike them if they aren't just one person struggling the same way we are.
Those are my thoughts for today.

A Riddle

On his recent trip to Great Britain, George Bush had a meeting with Queen Elizabeth. He asked her, "How does one manage to run a country so smoothly?"

"That`s easy," she replied, "You surround yourself with intelligent ministers and advisors."

"But how can I tell whether they are intelligent or not?" he inquired. "You ask them a riddle," she replied, and with that she pressed a button and said,"Would you please send Tony Blair in."

When Blair arrived, the Queen said, "I have a riddle for you to answer for me. Your parents had a child and it was not your sister and it was not your brother. Who was this child ?"

For the rest of the story .... Who was that child? .

Monday Wake Up Call

On Saturday I posted a long lenghty piece on the killing of Paul Johnson. I stated then that I felt the Saudi's were complacent in the ongoing terrorist activities. This story certainly seems to support my position.
Of course the Saudi government is going to deny it. Yes they claim they killed this man Al Muqrin, a supposed high level Al Qeada operative. We don't know who they killed. We don't know who those three bodies belonged to. More likely they were lowlevel sacrificial sheep. How is it that now after another American has been killed they have miraculously found and captured 12 other suspected members of this so called cell ? Surely I am not the only one who smells something fishy here?
If you are genuinly outraged at the death of Paul Johnson, maybe it's time to stop sitting around talking about it and do something. Write your Senators, your Congressmen, your President and tell them, we are tired of Saudi Arabia being given a pass on anything and everything. Not just terrorism but their part in inflating the price of oil. Their continued aiding and abedding the very man our government leaders say was the master mind of September 11th. We want our leaders to stop treating this country and it's royal family as if they are their our friends. They are not. We want them held accountable.
If our government leaders are unwilling or unable to do that, then we need to hold them accountable as well.


And now a little something for those of you who don't do politics.

Saturday Ponderings

I know this is suppose to be a politics free zone , but there are some things that cannot and should not be ignored. This is one of those things.
Another American has died. I am greatly saddend and sympathize with his family. There seems to be no end to the horrors that man will visit upon his fellow man. As we have all borne witness to of late, Muslim extremist are not alone in their willingness to perpetrate horrorific acts of violence upon those in their custody. We have been operating our own little shop of horrors in that tragic part of the world. In fact, truth be told, our prisons right here in the US are no models humane treatment.
The death of Paul Johnson is tragic. No more so however than the death of any other human being. Do I hold President Bush, or Donald Rumsfield, or even Dick Cheney responsible? No I do not. Paul Johnson was a civilian. He made a choice. He knew full well what the dangers were and still he chose to place himself in harms way. I don't know and won't even attempt to guess at what his reasons were. They were his own. He paid the ultimate price. Now his family will pay as well. I can't say that I know how they feel. I hope I never do.
Frankly I am surprised by the shock that many people are expressing. Why? Haven't we seen what people are capable of? Not just those people either. No, we haven't beheaded anyone, but American hands are not clean. Just this week an American CIA operative/contractor was indited for the murder of an Iraqi prisoner. It's time for all of us to wake up. Pull our heads out of the sand and take a good look around us. We are at war. Not just in Iraq but around the world. Our government has made some bad decisions and not just the current administration. There was a time when we sold arms to into that part of the world so that they might fight and kill amongst themselves. Little did we know just how the idea "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" would come back to haunt us.
We have continued to embrace Saudia Arabia as our "friends" in the Middle East. Yet two separate polls (one on CNN and one on MSNBC) show that 50% of Saudi's are not unhappy with the acts of the terrorist against westerners. 50%! The other 49% probably think the terrorist aren't doing enough! We know that Osama Bin Laden is a member of the Saudi royal family. In the days following September 11th, when all air traffic was grounded 5 private jets were allowed to leave this country. These jets were quietly slipping members of the Bin Laden family out of the United States. No one knows for sure who was on those planes. No one can say for certain that Osama himself wasn't among those given free passage. We will never know how many of the guilty escaped during those dark days. Why?
Why were these people not rounded up and held for questioning? Who better to question and interrogate than the family of the man we believed responsible? Why were they not shipped off to GIMO? I believe we all know the answer. Because they are filty rich and they have friends in high place in this country. No matter what they might have known, or may know now, they will never be confronted or held responsible. For this, I do hold the leaders of our country responsible. They have failed us. They continue to fail us everytime they shake hands, play a round of golf, sit down to a dinner, or do business with the royal family of Saudi Arabia.
We are at war in the Middle East. It is time our government held the leaders of Saudi Arabia responsible. Just the same as we did in Afghanistan and Iraq. Just because they are wealthy beyond our imagination does not allow them to escape the same concequences as any country harboring terrorist. They have lied to us, they have abused our generosity. They have allowed the continued teaching of hatred of all Christians,and Jews, and they are allowing terrorist to flourish within their borders. It is time to evict them from the good old boys club. It's time to say put up or shut up. Don't tell me they don't know where Osama is. He's 6'4" and requires kidney dialysis at least once a week. Why is it that they can 'suddenly' kill two top Al Qeada operatives after Paul Johnson was killed? How do we know who was actually killed? Are we suppose to just take their word for it?
Personally I subscribe to the belief that the friend of my enemy is my enemy as well. How about you?
Okay rant over, stick a fork in me, I'm done.

Friday's Scoop

Okay folks here's the deal. TW, I can't get into your blog. I've been trying for two days. Everytime I try my computer freezes up. No, I don't have dial-up. I have cable broadband. Normally it loads fast. Same with Retro Girl. Houston and Jaye, I can get yours to load but it takes forever. Phyllis, Faith, Brenda, David, Leslie,Carl, yours all work fine. Well Leslie's does take a bit to load but it's like only 10 or 15 seconds longer. KB, I can't comment in your comments. It keeps telling me there is some kind of 'fatal error'. I love the new look though! Heather, I hope you get things worked out soon. I miss you. Ladies over at Mind Diverson, your blog loads alright but things slow down considerablly when it comes to commenting. It takes a good 30 seconds for comments to process (this is also the case with Jaye's comments). For some reason Houston's and Faith's work just fine. Everybody else (Mama, Cassie, Ellen, Otto,MaryLou,Tim, OCM, Dave,Kim,Zero, Joe, Kelley, Rob, Fanni,Dawn, Shana, Ellen2, Sherry, Amy, Bobby,Elaine,and others) I haven't forgotten any of you, I'm reading as fast as I can.
So, is it my antiquated computer or is anyone else having problems? My inquiring mind needs input!

ps: Here's a little something I found over at OTTO'S you can make one of yourself too, but you'll have to go to Otto's for the link.

I don't know about this one. I think I'm very sensitive to the feelings of others. I don't really see myself as being all that intellectual. In fact while I have scored well on standard IQ tests ( upwards of 140) I don't think I'm what one would call 'smart'. I think my intelligence is more common sense than book smart.

I really like this line..."You are the manager, coach, architect, developer of your life."

Pearls of Wisdom

Today, I got butkis, so I will instead share with you these pearls of wisdom.

The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.
-- Lucille Ball

Youth would be an ideal state if it came a little later in life-- Herbert Asquith
(I absolutely agree with this one!!!)

Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.
-- Larry Lorenzoni

To think, when one is no longer young, when one is not yet old, that one is no longer young, that one is not yet old, that is perhaps something.
-- Samuel Beckett
(I have not a clue where Sam was going with this one)

We know we're getting old when the only thing we want for our birthday is not to be reminded of it.
-- Unknown
(I recon I'm not old yet, cause I still want lots of good stuff on my birthday)

Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
-- Chili Davis
(I think I'll opt for NOT)

People forget how fast you did a job - but they remember how well you did it.
-- Howard Newton
(Maybe, but just think if you do it fast and good! On the other hand some things should NEVER be done fast, like eating cheesecake or pie, those are to be savored, every delightful, delicious bite a culinary delight. Then there's sex. Quickies may be good, but there's nothing that can quite compare to an afternoon of long, slow, sweaty, lovemaking. Well except maybe a nice piece of cheesecake afterwards, or during.)

King of Beers

Maybe it's the sardonic side of me, but I'm really enjoying Budwiser's "King of Beers" commericials. Maybe it's because the little guy is a donkey.

Is he cute or what?

Alive and Well

Here is something that was sent to me by a friend. For anyone who's been through the agony of a dying love, it speaks volumes. I thought I'd share it with you.

Not Love

What quality do I possess or perhaps lack
which puts your patience to the test
and causes that within your breast
to hate what beats inside my chest.
I wish our wedding day I could take back.

You say the love you feel for me is real,
but I ponder if that sentiment rings true.
Why my private thoughts I often hide from you.
If I shared them would more battering be due?
I am scared to tell you what I truly feel.

These times I feel my worth is quite in doubt;
that my value’s just illusion to my eyes,
my existence is that which you do despise.
I tumble through my days with tears and sighs.
The days like these I wish I could tear out.

When we wed I dreamed for lifelong bliss.
This was a wish for you, a wish for me,
A lifelong trip away to ecstasy.
A pleasure cruise across life’s every sea.
A fairytale in each days ending kiss.

But shadows of emotion start to creep.
Some valleys low, and some peaks high,
some days to laugh, some nights to cry.
My soul a bird away to fly.
My dying heart here left alone to weep.

Poetry Part Deux

Have you ever felt like you
knew someone a long,
long time ago?
Another place, another time,
a friendship of the souls?
Two people who share a bond
for reasons neither know,
A feeling that they were friends,
a long, long time ago?

Did they stumble onto each
other by pure circumstance,
Or was it fate and destiny
that played a certain hand?
Two souls intertwined,
they are worlds apart,
But the soul, it knows no
difference, in matters of
the heart.

Somehow they are drawn together,
fate has brought them back,
Each living worlds apart,
they journey separate paths.
When this life is over,
and a new life begins,
Their souls will find each other,
two souls that we call friends.

Following the Herd

Since Dave has been posting some of his 'softer, gentler' work, I thought I would follow suite.
If you've been reading my blog very long, you've probably seen this before. It's mine. From my heart...

Another You

Look into my eyes
you will see yourself
I have become you
it wasn't suppose to be this way
I was going to change YOU
my love was the way
to break through the wall
the wall that surrounds you
but you were stronger
your wall higher
I got lost
I stumbled along the way
into the abyss
your anger, your pain, your hate
enveloped me
suckeled away my soul
I have become
another you

Blogger's Questionnaire
I got this from The Skank that Shrank, also known as KB.

1. Do you try to look hot when you go to the grocery store just in case someone recognizes you from your blog?
Honey, I look hot everywhere I go! It's those menopausal 'hot-flashes', they follow me.
2. Are the photos you post Photoshopped or otherwise altered?
I ususally have to make them smaller. I don't know how to do much else.
3. Do you like it when creeps or dorks email you?
I make copies of creepy, nasty emails and give them to the proper authorities. So if you send me nasty emails, you can look for a call to your ISP.
4. Do you lie in your blog?
I try to stick as close to the truth and the facts as I can. On the other hand, I'm not gonna hurt someone just for the sake of 'letting it all hang out'. It's just a blog, not testimoney before the Grand Jury. (see the answer to #16, makes it kind of hard to lie)
5. Are you passive-aggressive in your blog?
You tell me.
6. Do you ever threaten to quit writing so people will tell you not to stop?
I have written post where I said I was thinking about quitting. Not because I wanted someone to ask me not to, but because at that moment that was how I felt. Sometimes it can be overwhelming dealing with the ups and downs of life, blogging is part of life. It is MY blog and it is where I express my feelings and emotions. So ocassionaly I'm gonna come across as whiney, or bitchy.
7. Are you in therapy? If not, should you be? If so, is it helping?
Have been. Not anymore. Yes it helped. Blogging is my therapy now.
8. Do you delete mean comments? Do you fake nice ones?
Yes, I delete mean comments. Will do so again. Even if it gets me into hot water with the commenter. No one is going to use my comments to brow-beat, harass, or insult people. I have NEVER faked a comment.
9. Have you ever rubbed one out while reading a blog? How about after?
My only form of masturbation while blogging is mental..
10. If your readers knew you in person, would they like you more or like you less?
Some would , some wouldn't. That's life.
11. Do you have a job?
Define job. Do I have something I get paid to do? Yes, I do. I don't think of it as a job in the traditional sense.
12. If someone offered you a decent salary to blog full-time without restrictions, would you do it?
You mean people do this for free?
13. Which blogger do you want to meet in real life?
David and too many others to list. You know who you are!
14. Which bloggers have you made out with?
Well there was that one time....;)
15. Do you usually act like you have more money or less money than you really have?
I am po-folks. Everybody knows that!
16. Does your family read your blog?
Some do, some don't. I think Kasey does, and maybe Amie. Robby does ocassionally too.
17. How old is your blog?
A little over a year.
18. Do you get more than 1000 page views per day? Do you care?
Surely you jest? I'm thrilled to get 10.
19. Do you have another secret blog in which you write about being depressed, slutty, or a liar?
I have another blog, but it's political, and it's no secret.
20. Have you ever given another blogger money for his/her writing?
I have made donations to bloggers. Not for their writing but for other reasons.
21. Do you report the money you earn from your blog on your taxes?

Well, Duh!

I found this at Otto's , and just had to try it out.

I'm an irredeemably eejitous, liberal, not-too-generous, not-too-selfish, relatively well adjusted human being!
See how compatible you are with me!

Forbidden Love...

I'm between a rock and a hard place tonight. What I really want to talk about is the press confrence I saw on C-SPAN. President Clinton was touting the upcoming release of his book My Life. However, since I am trying to keep this a politics free zone, I'll be keeping those thoughts to myself. Maybe I will indulge in a bit of mental masturbation
Instead I'll offer you gratuitous sex. For your reading pleasure.... The Happy Hooker.

Meanwhile back in the land of denial...

If you are looking for something to make you laugh till you cry, (if your a middle-aged, menopausal woman, this would be laugh till you pee your pants), here's a little something for your entertainment...

Everything is Dumb.

It's not dumb at all. In fact some of it is downright wickedly bent and borderline genius.
I'll be the first to admit however, it doesn't compare with finding strange mens underwear in your gym bag.

Reality Check

While a dreamer at heart, I am still very much a realist.
Does anyone in your family, or anyone you know, receive WIC? Do you know any children who attend Head Start?
If so you should read this....
read all about it. Scroll down to "Intent to Destroy".

Okay, back to dreamland, located somewhere along the river Denial.
