Friday

(Criminal Minds infects me like a sickness.)

Yesterday, the Dragon Lady went to Dunkin Donuts.  She brought home lots and lots of pastry.  I stuffed my face like a fleshy senator at a Roman orgy.  Then I washed it all down with several glasses of Coke.  The meal took ten years off my life.  But who cares?  We all have to die some time.

I downloaded another episode of Criminal Minds.  I'm a huge fan. It's the sickest show on television.  A psychopath works for a pest control company.  He kidnaps several innocent victims and cages them in dog kennels.  Then he infects them with rabies so that he can watch them go crazy and die.  I sat there mesmerized as if I were a deer caught in the headlights of an 18-wheel truck.  I couldn't move.  No kidding.  Perhaps I need to see a psychiatrist.

I paid homage to Christ.  I said the Lord's Prayer on bended knees. No big surprise.  It's not like I'm some filthy atheist. In Exodus, Pharaoh commands the midwives to kill the newborn Hebrew males. However, the midwives disobey the government because they fear God more than they fear the state.  And that's why I'm attracted to religion. It's all about the anarchy.  The Father comes first, and the powers-that-be are relegated to a distant second. Hallelujah.

I went to bed at 10 p.m.  I had another nightmare about high school. I sat in a diner eating pancakes and drinking cola.  I had to take a big exam.  Yet I didn't care.  My friends kept warning me that I would never graduate.  But I just kept stuffing my face.  Try to figure that one out.

I woke up at 6 a.m. and drank several cups of coffee.  Then I read the paper while enjoying a bathroom break.  There has been a steep incline in the amount of sexual crimes against children here in the ROK.  However, forty percent of the offenders aren't serving jail time.  They've been placed on probation instead.

I turned on Fox News.  The Five discussed the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Flight 370.  They think the plane might now be sitting in Pakistan.  I hope so.  Talk about great news for the families of the missing.  I hate to speculate on what actually happened.  I have no clue.

Anyway, it's time for the song du jour.  Here's Down With the Sickness by Disturbed.  God bless.

  5. First off, I like your blog. You have an interesting perspective on life, (relatively speaking), and a dry witty way of conveying it. I give a hat tip to Robert Mix, (DoChenRolling Bearing), for turning me on to your posts. He and I both post and read Zero Hedge regularly.
    You and I share many similarities. I too, no longer smoke. In fact, if I wish to die, all I have to do is light up one more cigarette. It will surely kill me. I too, miss smoking, (though only occasionally anymore). There are few joys to compare with a cup of coffee and a puff, but staying alive is definitely one of them. So needless to say, I find my jollies elsewhere than tobacco.
    Yesterday was pi day, (3.14). I pulled the last quart of cherries, (pitted and frozen last May), and made a pie. I used some frozen rasberries as filler, so technically it was a mostly cherry with rasberries pie. Served it up with beer-can chicken and home-made KFC coleslaw. Bomb.
    Today is the Ides of March. In what strikes me as rather apropo, you mentioned Dunkin Donuts. Seeing as The Ides of March are upon us, and we're all going to die sooner or later anyway, I will go visit my local donut shop this morning and buy a dozen. (I usually only get a couple but today it will be whole-hog. It is, (by the way), a damned fine donut shop. The old Chinese guy-baker is a donut-making god, a true artist. But I want you to know that it was you who inspired this early-morning run to the "fried-bread-coated-in-sugar" shack. Thanks, pal.

    1. Man, I really want a smoke. Glad I'm not the only one going through withdrawals.

    2. I tied to stop smoking after reading this Blog, but ended up picking up old cigaret buds under my window for making cigarettes after i did not buy new ones. Its hard. Guess im not ready.

    3. Trust me, MAD. I feel your pain. It took me years to quit.

    4. I never had to go through tobacco withdrawal. One evening 60 miles offshore of Corpus Christi (TX) back in the day I walked up to the drill floor as part of my job. The Driller was kind enough (with a smirk) to offer me: "Skoal, brother?" Well, the oilfields being a macho-kind of place I accepted the tiniest portion I could, I already knew not to swallow...

      Did´t matter, within minutes I was puking my brains out into the Gulf some 60 ft below. The oilfield roughnecks so enjoyed that that the rest of the week all I heard from them were offers for "Skoal, brother?". Instant allergy to tobacco! Our Lord works in mysterious ways...

    5. @ MAD: I cannot count the times I re-rolled or just picked up and smoked "shorties". FWIW, here's my understanding of my addiction and how I did quit.
      Cigarette addiction works at two levels. The first is physical. The second is psychological. The first one you can beat easy. Armed with a true desire to quit, buy the nicoderm 21mg (Step 1) skin patches.
      Starting on day 1, put a patch on your right arm when you come out of the shower, daily ablutions, whatever. Leave it on until you go to shower on day 2. Day 2 patch goes on right breast. Day 3 is left breast, day 4 is left arm. Day 5 is same as day 1, (right arm).
      It is okay to continue to smoke, (though doing so will make you nauseous, (a sign of nicotine overdose)). You will slowly taper down how many cigarettes you smoke as you no longer will get the "lift" that smoking one every 20-45 minutes gave you. See, that every 20-45 minute lift was the hook that is your physical addiction. Soon the day will come when you will go a day w/o a cigarette, (though still on the patches). Then it will be time to move to phase two.
      Let me say there is no time limit here. The patches are still nicotine, and you're still addicted, but your lungs are getting a break. Also, you're no longer yo-yo-ing drug delivery with a cigarette. The next step is to start whittling the patches down once a day, or once a week, whatever. You pick the rate of drop. But what this allows you to do is to SLOWLY taper off the nicotine. Remember, you are only using the 21mg patches. Don't fool around with the 14 or 7mg ones.
      Personally I went by eighths. To cut an eighth of a a rectangular patch, cut it from the middle of one side to the middle of the top. Cut them BEFORE peeling the adhesive backing off and yes, save the shorties! You can put six "eighths" together for a 3/4 patch.
      Here's what will happen: one day you'll forget to put a patch on. For me it occurred at the half-patch level, (at 10.5mg). At that point congratulate yourself: you just beat the physical addiction.

      The psychological one is tougher. You'll face it once you've quit the physical. It may show up as a dream that you've failed, (relapsed). Understand this: Your brain LOVES nicotine. It will lie to you to get it. It will lie to you via your subconscious, (dreams), or consciously in you getting the idea that you've licked it, (your addiction), and that you can have "just one" in the future. Having "just one" is called RELAPSING. There is no such thing as "just one". BTW, it will taste like cunnilingus on a dog's rectum. It'll make you wonder what you ever saw in it, (until the nicotine buzz hits you).
      That's it. That's how you quit. Forever more an abstaining addict. Good luck MAD, and hang in there, Smith!
      Peace to you both!

    6. I used a medicine called Champix. It worked great. Took all the pleasure out of cigs.

    7. Robert, I know all about the oil fields. I'm a Louisiana boy. Some of those dudes are rough. It's amazing to me how the tool-pushers could keep them in line.

    8. Anonymous there could be a nurse, with all that nitty-gritty knowledge about using the nicotine patch and the psychology of smoking! I will adopt some of that into the chats I give patients about quitting the Native Americans' revenge on us whitefellas.

      I'm glad you had success using Champix, Mr. Smith. You must have a strong brain. In Canada, doctors stopped prescribing that as a crutch to quit the Killer Weed because it had too many negative side effects. I'm not talking jus the frequent, bizarre and unsettling dreams. There were too many people who went out of their heads on that med. The cure was worse than the disease, but lung cancer and emphysema don't manifest until 20 years later, while the dysfunction from Champix was right there, right now.

    9. Strangely enough, I was looking forward to the vivid bizarre dreams and psychotic behavior. But the whole experience was rather bland.

  6. Mr. Smith, you might be interested to know that there was (maybe still is?) a really, really rich guy who had been putting three crosses up in many places in the mid-Atlantic, Appalachia and parts of the South last I heard. The three crosses are typically some 20´ high, the middle one being a bit taller, as in your logo there at the top of your page. He paid the landowners something and of course had them constructed at his own expense.

    He was considered kind of a crank by many, but I am sure that he increased awareness of Christ among people driving by. I myself saw three or so examples in Virgina and West Virginia when we lived near DC many years ago.

    I enjoy your food comments, especially spicy, mmm..., Korea, Peru and Italy are the ONLY places where I gain weight when I visit.

    Peace and best to you and your readers.

  7. quit smoking 18 years ago (when my number four was born) and my wife had a screaming meltdown fit "YOU'RE GONNA DIEEEEEEEE". Missed it horribly for eighteen months, but then I hit some wall and smoke became offensive. Now I can smell traces of smoke no one else can smell and I'm still short of breath. best, Jay and hi Robert. We've got a regular party line going here...

  11. ZeroHedge is full of heathen. Why do the heathen rage? I don't know. I think I will get an account on Zerohedge just so I can tell that asshole Ralph Spoilsport to piss off. Maybe not though since one poster said he had connections with a government agency. I don't need that kind of trouble right now. I have to quit smoking and drinking first probably. Then I can stop huffing glue hopefully.

    1. People still sniff glue. No kidding. Even after all the warnings. They also sniff paint. Strange world.

    2. They call paint-huffing "chroming" Down Under, as in chrome-coloured spraypaint. We get people into the psych wards that do that, including one pre-op M-to-F transexual recently who was insistent that "she" was going to keep doing it. The trannies I've seen are sad, mixed-up people with suicidal urges. Perhaps there are some who are more together in life, since I only see the ones who are in such crisis that they need to be hospitalised. But there is nothing sexy about them, from my experience. The ones I've dealt with are tortured souls, and generally bitter/nasty to everyone around them.

      Aboriginals in Oz sniff petrol fumes for a high, since that's easily available. There was some of that with First Nations people (as the natives are labelled in Canada) but they're more about the alcohol. Anglos and other ethnicities do it too, of course, but the pre-contact people who have that vice stand out more in my mind because they conform to the stereotype of substance-abusing primitives. Our species has a strong urge to get off its head.

      The one thing that will fcuk a person up worse than smoking meth is huffing. Massive brain cell death. When we get a patient in who's done either meth or huffing, I presume that they're lost to humanity forever. Both because of the damage to what's between their ears, and because they've been so bent by whatever circumstances have led them to the point of doing that. My attitude is that we cannot save EVERYONE, especially those who do not want to be saved, and fight us when we attempt to steer them right. If I was King of the World, I'd put such people in a room with food, fluids, all the illicit substances they wanted to use, and a loaded pistol. Get as high as you want, for as long as you choose, and then when you're sick of the self-created demons inside your head, please shoot yourself. As long as it's voluntary. That will make more room for the people who want to get better.

  13. INTERNATIONAL CONCEPT OF WORK FROM HOME
    Work from home theory is fast gaining popularity because of the freedom and flexibility that comes with it. Since one is not bound by fixed working hours, they can schedule their work at the time when they feel most productive and convenient to them. Women & Men benefit a lot from this concept of work since they can balance their home and work perfectly. People mostly find that in this situation, their productivity is higher and stress levels lower. Those who like isolation and a tranquil work environment also tend to prefer this way of working. Today, with the kind of communication networks available, millions of people worldwide are considering this option.

    Women & Men who want to be independent but cannot afford to leave their responsibilities at home aside will benefit a lot from this concept of work. It makes it easier to maintain a healthy balance between home and work. The family doesn't get neglected and you can get your work done too. You can thus effectively juggle home responsibilities with your career. Working from home is definitely a viable option but it also needs a lot of hard work and discipline. You have to make a time schedule for yourself and stick to it. There will be a time frame of course for any job you take up and you have to fulfill that project within that time frame.

    There are many things that can be done working from home. A few of them is listed below that will give you a general idea about the benefits of this concept.

    Baby-sitting
    This is the most common and highly preferred job that Women & Men like doing. Since in today's competitive world both the parents have to work they need a secure place to leave behind their children who will take care of them and parents can also relax without being worried all the time. In this job you don't require any degree or qualifications. You only have to know how to take care of children. Parents are happy to pay handsome salary and you can also earn a lot without putting too much of an effort.

    Nursery
    For those who have a garden or an open space at your disposal and are also interested in gardening can go for this method of earning money. If given proper time and efforts nursery business can flourish very well and you will earn handsomely. But just as all jobs establishing it will be a bit difficult but the end results are outstanding.

    Freelance
    Freelance can be in different wings. Either you can be a freelance reporter or a freelance photographer. You can also do designing or be in the advertising field doing project on your own. Being independent and working independently will depend on your field of work and the availability of its worth in the market. If you like doing jewellery designing you can do that at home totally independently. You can also work on freelancing as a marketing executive working from home.

    Internet related work
    This is a very vast field and here sky is the limit. All you need is a computer and Internet facility. Whatever field you are into work at home is perfect match in the software field. You can match your time according to your convenience and complete whatever projects you get. To learn more about how to work from home, contact us today on workfromhome.otr214426@gmail.comand our team will get you started on some excellent work from home projects.


    Diet food
    Since now a days Women & Men are more conscious of the food that they eat hence they prefer to have homemade low cal food and if you can start supplying low cal food to various offices then it will be a very good source of income and not too much of efforts. You can hire a few ladies who will help you out and this can be a good business.

    Thus think over this concept and go ahead.
