Thursday

(Reign seems quite childish.)

Yesterday, the Dragon Lady prepared beef and French fries for dinner.  The meal was good.  I'm a huge fan of starch.  I dipped the fries in steak sauce.  They tasted tangy.  

I washed the vittles down with several glasses of Coke.  I used to drink alcohol.  But I've given up my evil ways.  I'm doing my best to stay alive.  Why?  I have two young boys who need a father.  I want to make it another twenty years in order to give them a healthy start in life. Then the holy angels can zap me with ass cancer for all I care.

I downloaded a series called Reign.  It's about Mary Queen of Scots.  The first episode seemed rather childish.  Perhaps the show is geared toward teenagers.  The actress who plays the title role is very cute.  She has beautiful dark features.  However, she's young enough to be my daughter.  I'll try another episode tonight. If the program fails to grab me, I'll throw it to the wind.

I paid homage to the Christ God.  I said the Lord's Prayer on bended knees.  No big surprise.  It's not like I'm some filthy atheist. I've been reading Exodus.  One of my favorite parts is when God decides to kill Moses for not having Gershom circumcised.  The problem?  Moses's Midian wife Zipporah is unfamiliar with Abraham's covenant.  She finally saves her husband's life by cutting off her son's foreskin and touching Moses's feet with the blood. Good stuff.

I went to bed at 10 p.m.  I had a nightmare about falling off a mountain.  I was scared to death.  I woke up at 6 a.m. and drank several cups of coffee.  Then I read the paper while enjoying a bathroom break.  Many Korean students are abusing ADHD drugs in order to get better scores on tests.  These narcotics help them concentrate.  The whole idea seems rather sick to me.  Their ambition knows no bounds.

I turned on Fox News.  The Five talked about American exceptionalism.  I love my country.  But what a bunch of bullshit. We don't finish first in anything these days.  Our citizens have short life spans.  Our public schools suck ass.  Plus our medical care is for the birds.  I hate to sound negative.  Yet I cannot tell a lie.  The only things we excel at are killing people and producing pornography.  Who knows?  Maybe that's enough.

Anyway, it's time for the song du jour.  Here's Punch the Clock by Elvis Costello.  God bless.

  3. I gave up drinking some 538 days ago (but who´s counting?). One of your readers (and mine) was very kind to send me a book that has helped me start a great journey: The Sermon on the Mount (Emmet Fox, 1938), a real help to me. Christ´s words in a context that we modern Westerners can understand. No BS, just a careful analysis of what Jesus Himself said (Matthew 5,6,7). Thanks, Jay!

    You pointed out the flip side of Korean education: so much pressure that their kids have to take drugs just to study so much. Maybe that´s the state of the world now, bust your ass or get left behind. I dunno, but I guess that I am happy enough to be middle-aged, I would not want to have to navigate the filth nowadays that seems even worse than when I was young. Peace to you and yours.

  4. totally with you on american exceptionalism. complete bullshit. time we faced up to it, focused on our own ills, and stopped spreading our awesomeness around the globe by force.

    have you ever read up on circumcision? apparently the foreskin is the most sensitive part of the male anatomy. like female mutilation, the whole point is to reduce sexual pleasure. and it's so painful it can cause choking and seizures. yet another gift to humanity from the chosen ones (talk about bullshit exceptionalism)

    1. Most boys are cut. It's clean and culturally appropriate.

      Delete
    2. Genital mutilation of infants is appropriate?

      Delete
    3. A little bit of genital mutilation never killed anybody. God bless.

  6. war, aka genocide of the 'heathens/savages/terrorists' (pick your meme du jour), is also 'culturally appropriate'. men, women, children... kill them all
    and let god sort them out. a sound plan for sure.

    genital mutilation, like water torture, never killed anybody (or not).
    nor did a smack to the face, or the fracture of a bone. hence, all
    good? look up 'body memory'. and god bless the vengeance and jealousy of
    our omnipotent creator.

    raised a 'christian', i've found no bigger dichotomy in this lifetime... if one has the power to create a universe and all within it from nothing -with total control over all creation and the outcome therein- of what then could 'he' possibly be jealous?

    personally, i can't find anything more repulsive than cutting off a body
    part of a live and totally defenseless being (same for abortion and female mutilation). but then, i don't go down on bended knee... i'm a filthy agnost.

    sorry to be a thorn in your side, mr. smith. i wound up here via allah
    knows what (ZH?) i like your writing and find much humor on your
    site. thank you for that. but i'll have to disagree on some points.

    c'est la vie.

    1. No problem. I don't mind disagreements. But keep one thing in mind. Paul and James both came to the conclusion that circumcision isn't necessary to be a Christian. The gentiles are free to cut or keep their foreskins.

    2. I'm with you on boys getting snipped, Mr. Smith. It's more sanitary. I had the displeasure of taking care of a number of uncircumcised old guys with dementia when I used to do nursing home work in florida during the mid-1990s. When they lose their minds and get incontinent of urine, they no longer wipe their wangs like they should. We nurses and the nurses aides (bless their hearts, the CNAs have the hardest jobs in health care and get paid the least) did our best to scrub and dry the tips. But smegma still happened. As bad as government cheese is, weenie cheese is infinitely worse.

      Then there's "phimosis" -- when the head of the penis swells, or the foreskin tightens, or both, so that the man's urethral opening (the piss hole) is encased in what the Old Testament says to whack off. (Not THAT kind of whacking off!) So whenever they whizz, it's a dribble from the flesh-surrounded head. And I'm not even getting into how the uncircumcised penis is a trapping ground for bacteria such as chlamydia and other grossness as a result of sex. The Israelites might have been God-mad in their rationale for the modifications of their males, but they were correct for public health reasons.

    3. I'm a big believer in snipping the male rug-rats. But who died and made me king? Peace.

  7. "Most boys are cut. It's clean and culturally appropriate."

    this is so canned and inarticulate that it leads me to believe you're duping your readers to get a redress; maybe to provoke conversation on taboo topics. which i guess is one means to an end, but honesty seems to me a better approach.

    and perhaps it was a forthright response, in which case… god bless.

    1. I had both my boys cut. I'm cut. My dad was cut. My grandfathers were cut. Peeling the banana runs in the family. I don't feel as if I were mutilated. But to each his own. Peace.

Thanks for stopping by. Smith.
