I give up
if ya can't beat em, join em

There once was a fey Celtic Wytch
Who could Spelle like a Sonne of a Bytch
When she misplaced her Charme
It did wither her Arme
And her Asse roll'd off into a Ditch.

occupational hazards
are you a psychopathic boat captain?
I haven't been blogging much here, as you may have noticed. Instead, I've been writing much the same sort of stuff over at Chief Blogging Officer, for much the same sort of stuff you see pictured at the right. So go over there and see our latest about sex, religion, death, contraband intellect, serial commas, and other shocking developments in today's modern world.

Meanwhile, Robin and I were wondering what to do at 2am this morning, so we cruised over to Amazon and started looking at random "So You'd Like To..." lists. And ma-a-a-a-an, did we ever find a doozey for y'all. To wit...

So you'd like to... find out what mental problems your job could create

Go here to find out what kind of jobs you should definitely stay away from if you suffer from any or all of the following (and we quote):

  • Depression and/or Mania
  • Dissociative or Multiple-personality
  • Masochistic or Borderline
  • Histrionic / Hysterical
  • Paranoid
  • Obsessive / Compulsive
  • Psychopathic / anti-social / sadistic
  • Narcissistic
  • Schizoid / Schizotypal
  • Schizophrenia
For instance, if you are a pathological narcissist, better turn down that park ranger job. If you're paranoid, don't ever type. Or retire. The author, one whereat2@yahoo.com, notes that "we all focus on something just a little too much." And offers living proof. He (?) says the lists he presents came to him "by osmosis." If you to are looking for something to do at -- what time is it now where you are? -- then you could do a lot worse than to check out this highly original occupational horoscope. Must be seen to be believed. But not if you're a carpet installer.

they're not what you think
Last night I was hanging with my friend Robin and she was reading me this chapter from Ecopsychology: Restoring the Earth, Healing the Mind, a book I bought several years ago when I was out of mine. The chapter she was reading was an interview of a guy named Carl Anthony, whom I'd never heard of, by Theodore Roszak, whom I had. Roszak's been around forever; the first book of his I remember is The Making of a Counter Culture: Reflections on the Technocratic Society and Its Youthful Opposition. I was too busy making countercultural to read it at the time, and later, after I came down and got old, it seemed irrelevant. Roszak is your basic Luddite, which I don't hold against him (some of my best friends, etc.), but I do hate him for other reasons that I find it difficult to articulate. It's just a feeling, you know? Like meeting someone at a party and wishing you'd gone for that Black Belt in May-Hem-Do. I don't know. I guess it's not a real rational sorta thing, but hey, what're ya gonna do?

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
