Ray Lamontagne -- New Song!!

You Are The Best Thing -- Do yourself a favor and crank this thing up. This is pure soul at its finest. Best song I've heard in a long time!

I would stand in a line at Best Buy at midnight to wait for this album. That's how strongly I can't wait!

The Family Cloth....Instead Of Toilet Paper?

Eco-Friendly or "green" sites are now advocating we use a reusable, washable cloth instead of toilet paper. Found this from an online article...
The purpose of the family cloth is to reduce the waste created by toilet paper. The environmentally unfriendly aspects of toilet paper happen before it arrives at your home. Trees are destroyed for the necessary pulp and large amounts of chemicals are used to turn the wood pulp into the soft, fluffy, white tissues we like to use. In addition, those darn packages of t.p. are big and a lot of fuel is burned getting them to their destination. These concerns are causing people to ditch their toilet paper and use a family cloth instead.
The article goes on to suggest that an old T-shirt works great as toilet paper and you just wash it every so often.

Let me say this.... Before I will ever use and resuse a cloth instead of toilet paper, I would watch as the earth slowly heats up and glows neon with fire as our faces slowly melt into a pile of radioactive goo.

Ridiculous. What say you?

Dwight Schrute Quotes

Dwight Schrute: When you become close with someone, you develop a kind of six sense. You can read their moods like a book. Right now the title of Michael's book is 'Something Weird Is Going On... colon... What Did Jan Say?' The Michael Scott Story. By Michael Scott with Dwight Schrute.

Dwight Schrute: When I die. I want to be frozen. And if they have to freeze me in pieces, so be it. I will wake up stronger than ever, because I will have used that time, to figure out exactly why I died. And what moves I could have used to defend myself better now that I know what hold he had me in.

Dwight Schrute: I am greatly concerned about having a convict in the office. And I do not care if that convict is white, black, Asian, German, or some kind of halfsy. I do not like criminals.

Dwight Schrute: [indicating his purple belt] This is not a toy, this is a message to the entire office so that everyone can see I can physically dominate them.

Three Decades of Wisdom

My advice to the masses as I turn a score and a half years old (Take it with a grain of salt because what do I know?)....

* Don't acquire stuff. Stuff gets boring quick and leaves you wanting more stuff. I know this from experience.

* If college is not agreeable with you, drop out. You can always go back. But if you drop out, work hard, get two or three jobs, do not sit around and do nothing.

* Stick with a job/career even if you hate it. Jobs are like marriages, the bad days come and go. If you fall into the trap of job hopping you will never find stability in your life.

* Wait to get married. Wait until your late twenties at least. Chances are pretty good you will get divorced and become just another statistic if you rush into getting married because of a race to the alter. Fight that urge.

* Don't sell your soul for alcohol and entertainment. It's not worth it. Just stay away from wine and beer altogether. If you want to remind yourself why you it's better to stay away from alcohol...just look at the people that drink a lot. It'll become crystal clear.

* Pay for the majority of your purchases with cash. (Learned this one the real hard way.)

* Don't fight your parents. You are going to become just like them anyway so learn to embrace it early on and you will have peace.

* Just be real. More people know when you are being fake than you realize.

* Laugh at yourself daily.

Union, Let Me Help!

Who says I am anti-union? I want to do my part to help them get through this tough time as they stand with the brotherhood.
I know of a great way to get goods and services... for FREE!!
It's called the "free" section on craigslist, and it is awesome!
People post things they no longer need so that those that might want them can go and pick them up.
For instance: Here is a bed that someone is generously giving away...

It's FREE!!!

Union, I am just doing my part to help a brother out. While you are standing there hurling insults at us there is free stuff out there for the taking! Go get it. As a wage slave I don't have the free time to go find this stuff.... it's yours!

My Union Facts

The union says I am a "wage slave". I'm not sure if the union knows how the economy works. Take notes union members...

* I was hired and agreed to work at a certain hourly rate. If I was not happy with that rate I would have gone somewhere else. Strike if you aren't happy, but don't expect the company not to just fire you for doing so.

* I am a free American despite what the union thinks. I am free to take my services to any job that wants to hire me at any time.

* Money I make on my job allows me to live how ever I please within the law.

* The only slave I can think of is the person that has to pay a union fee every week in order to keep "job security" which I'd like to point out is no different then a racketeering scheme.

* Part of the 40 dollars we all pay per month goes to politicians that create welfare states that cause people to rely on unions. And the cycle continues.

* Most union people I know that squawk the loudest are also the laziest, and are also the most likely to bad mouth any type of authority.

* Going to work should be my right if I am happy with my compensation.
