Happy Birthday To Me!

Once more around the sun for Ol' Cap'n Gibby.

Truth be told, I'm not that terribly excited. There are some Wiccan chicks doing a nude rain dance somewhere today.

Could be fun.

Anyways, I should get back to posting here regularly soon. Not because I have to, really, but it's something to do.

All this talk of "change" that the mediascape has been regurgitating ad nauseam for the past half-year or so has really gotten to me to thinkin', and I know just how much you love it when I think too much before I post here. So here comes the vitriol.

Change is an easy thing to say. Change change change. I could do that all day.

But to ACTUALLY change is about the most difficult thing you can ask a human being to do. We hate it. It's scary. You lose things. What you knew for sure no longer applies.

I've been stagnant in my personal and school life for awhile now. I've tried to change. Talk to people. Listen to people. Get confidant. It's hard, though, to get over the doubts, the fear, the shyness, the old habits. Every day I've thought and talked about changing, and it hasn't done a bit of good, because I haven't DONE anything I've thought or talked about. I just don't have the will or the impaetus yet.

So to anyone and everyone: Stop flapping your lips about change and SHOW that you can.

That includes me.

2009? Really?

It took long enough, but here's 2009 for you, a blank canvas laid bare for history to paint upon.

Something like that.

When you tally it all up, 2008 turned out to be a hell of a year. 2009 promises to continue that trend.

An old, horrifically cliched Chinese curse comes to mind: "May you live in interesting times."

The Weather Outside is Goddamn Shitty

Just in time for the end of exams, here comes the deep freeze that will paralyze your life and suck the soul right out of your body!

It's Christmas time in Manitoba, all right. Sorry for the lack of posts, school got a little nuts. Now I get to shelter in place for awhile and wait for the snow to melt so I can forage for berries once more. Of course, that'll be around May...

I hate this place. This post sucks.

That's minus forty windchills for you.

We'll Sail 'Round The Porn!

Thiiiiiiiiiiis is my favorite headline of the day. The article itself is a little patchy, besides some good puns (High Fructose Porn Syrup, anyone?).

Besides, the whole thing is old hat. Anyone paying even the slightest attention to their surroundings over the last decade knows that we are being bombarded with tits, ass and dongs in a manner befitting a good firebombing. We are living in the Tit Blitz.

It probably isn't a wholly good or bad thing. Sexuality is an important part of us, but there's a time and a place for it. You can look at a Playboy and say "Well, that's for grownups and the teenagers who find it in the can after the grownups are done with it, so it's not so bad." You can look at a Bratz doll, however, and say "Hmm, this is for kids? This might be over the line." That's about my position on it.

So that's porn for you.

Gotta get going. Gotta move.

Gotta move move move! You only have a little bit of time. Once it's gone, it's G O N E.

You know that, of course. But do you REALLY know it? What would it take to teach you?

This post is over. Just like that.
