*Yawn*

Mornin' all. No news from this weekend, except that caliban will most likely show up again in the next week, to see me before he heads off to Texas. Yep, boring ol' me, no news...for a change.

Update in a few more minutes, though...got people to shout out to.

Greetings

Gotta give a quick shout out to some new readers:

It's always a good feeling when someone on my list, who has a second, more personal journal, adds me to it...good to feel trusted, I suppose. Hey wanting!

I'm gaining a Russian rep, it seems...really wish I could read the journals, though (they're in Cyrillic, obviously). Still, good to have you, antistatic and diethylamide!

Steph asked me recently, "How the Hell do you know all these gorgeous models?" I have no idea, really, I guess it's karma for being a nice guy...*waves* Hey reddelicious!

Welcome to the Beast, y'all.

True Confessions

kenoma pointed this out to me, on reive's LJ, and I was amazed. I wanna give it a try here, so get in on it.

Here's the deal: confess your deepest and darkest secrets. 'IP Logging' has been turned off, and 'Anonymous Posting' is being allowed (which is how you really should respond to this), so your secrets are safely unconnected to anyone or anything. Hell, I may post a couple in here, as well, just to keep things bubbling.

Go ahead and get anyone else you want to come add their shadows, link this post in your journals. Wouldn't it feel good to get things off your chest, without having to take the backlash? Here's your chance, my friends, unload your souls.

Never Know What HIt You...And Neither Will Anyone Else

Just finished playing Hitman 2, which was excellent, for those that haven't yet. Man, that's my kinda game: use your brains, not your brawn. Get in, kill the target, get out, all without ever being detected. Silent as a shadow, swift as death; a wolf disguised as a man hunting men dressed as wolves.

*happy sigh* I'll be re-playing this one for a while.

Mood Swings

I have my share of mental problems, too. I just don't talk about it, mostly because I have learned to deal with them and control them, over the years. I am cyclothymic, though, and occasionally, it creeps up on me (so good at hiding it even I'm surprised sometimes, I guess). If I'm watching a movie and get emotional about something that I normally wouldn't (baby saved from burning building or something), I know it's on.

Which it is, at the moment. Gonna be a weird evening...not a bad one, just weird.

Just Goes To Show

Father O'Flannagan dies due to old age.

Upon entering St.Peter's gate, there is another man in front, waiting to go into heaven. St. Peter asks the man, "What is your name and what did you accomplish during your life?". The man responds "My name is Joe Cohen,
and I was a New York city Taxi driver for 14 years." "Very well," says St. Peter, "Here is your silk robe and golden scepter, now you may walk in the streets of our Lord."

St. Peter looks at the Father, and asks "What is your name and what did you accomplish?" He responds, "I'm Father O'Flannagan, and have devoted the last 62 years to the Lord". "Very well," says St. Peter, "Here is your cotton
robe and wooden staff, you may enter."

"Wait a minute," says O'Flannagan, "You gave the taxi driver a silk robe and golden scepter, why did I only get
a cotton robe and wooden staff?". "Well," St. Peter replied, "We work on a performance scale, you see while you preached, everyone slept, when he drove taxis, everyone prayed!"

(no subject)

MISSISSIPPI - Goodman Policeman Eddie Myers said he was sorry for the hurt he caused his family and the family of Emma Horton. "I put them through a lot over the last 25 months," Myers said Tuesday at the Jackson office of his attorney, Chokwe Lumumba. But Myers maintained he shot and killed Horton, Goodman's assistant police chief and his sister-in-law because she came into his house and wouldn't leave when he asked her to. He said she then reached for her gun. "I wasn't going to let her hurt me," Myers said.

Jurors set Myers free, though they could have convicted him of capital murder, murder or manslaughter after hearing him testify last week that he shot Horton in self-defense. Horton was armed, but her gun was found strapped in its holster on her body.

Myers testified he first used a shotgun but, after the first shot, it jammed and he then started using two .40-caliber handguns. Myers fired 36 shots, hitting Horton 14 times. Horton's sister, Lauree Kirkwood, dismissed Myers' expression of sorrow and said Horton's family is still trying to come to grips with the
verdict. "Nobody believes what happened," Kirkwood said of Myers' self-defense claim. "Who in their right mind could believe a person can shoot someone 14 times and that be self-defense?"

Holmes County District Attorney James Powell III said Myers killed Horton but is never going to be held responsible. "This is a runaway jury and crazy verdict. I don't know what else to say about this," he said.

Now, is it just me, but is the first thing you thought something along the lines of "Christ, he's a crappy shot"?
