Some Personal Stuff, Since I don't Feel Like Writing About Anything Else.
If you asked me why, I do not know that the answer is simple enough to make it clear. It may have been all of the lying, and hiding- stupid little treasures, genuine in their mediocrity- and I was just looking for a fucking pen, you see. In fact I continued my search for a fresh pen-preferably one with a lid, and ball-point, I prefer ball point- and went on with my day ignoring your little secret. It was nothing big, just a little something you got for yourself, dear. A little something for you- and you deserve it, don't you? Of course after little coaxing and I learn that this little treasure is just a miniscule portion of the stockpile of amutnition you have collected over the past year and a half.
That is not enough. Simply, there are worse one can do than hide things. I don't even know why you hid most of them. The thing is- it has been longer than a year and a half, you and I that is. Much longer. This is not the first moment of reckoning. This is not the first promise of change, not the first time I realized that I can't trust you, and not the first time you have caused me to feel so small that the world around me is a scary nuisance and bed becomes my ultimate residence. It is one of many untrusting moments of gutwrenching pain. I don't believe I saw the worst of it- but I didn't really have the energy to push much harder- and what I ended up with is incriminating enough.
Maybe, it just isn't a very good idea to refer to something different your fiance does in bed as a "new trick" unless some roleplaying is involved. It is not fair for me to reveal anything more detailed about our sex life, but we both know it is rocky.
Maybe I have done worse things, and I know at times I can be pretty hard to live with- and it may just be possible that this is just a good excuse to detatch myself- as I am notorious for that. Maybe I am just so fucking tired, dear, of all the little shit we fight about. Maybe I am not a person that needs what you give me, and maybe I just need a little time to think things over- some time to myself-without interruption.
My first post as a munuvian....
Same Jess.... Different day.
Who wants to be the first commenter?
for the traveler...
Theres a black sky outside
Alone with a scotch in my hand
My mind in deep sadness
Top of the hourglass, empty of sand
Hazel eyes and white toothed smile
Where did the hot green days go
Tan legs, bare feet, sand between my toes
Sun blazing down, pulsating yellow
Cooled in the surf of reason
I'll See Your ANTE and Raise You One
If I could be a scientist…
I would find the seat of the soul, and capture its photo on an MRI or something.
If I could be a musician…
I would play lead guitar in a punk rock band with my fabulous name: Bad Penny & The Distinct PINK
If I could be a doctor…
I'd never have to write legibly again!
If I could be a painter…
I would work summers, coating barns with bright shades of red. You said PAINTER, not artist.
If I could be an innkeeper…
I would always keep brand new full sized bars of soap in the rooms (I know it would cost more but its worth it), I would use twice the right amount of unscented fabric softener and I would spray the sheets with jasmine linen spray.
(and I raised you one)
If I could be whatever I wished to be...
I would be Just Bad Penny, one short year away from graduating from law school and then saving the world.

Turd in a Punchbowl Meme....
The rules are simple: write a poem with "turd in a punchbowl" in the first and third lines, then pass it on to 3 unsuspecting victims. Do check back to Blog d'Elisson and tell him just exactly what you think of this . . . meme.
Just for you Julie, I did a haiku.
Turd in a punchbowl.
Floating atop the red juice.
Life sucks for the drunks.
Who to give this to? Lets see... I dunno, will update later.
A random thought....
To the girl walking out of the gym ahead of me.
Well give me your number and I'll call (I'll call)
And I'll follow that ass in the mall (in the mall)
Yes it was spectacular. Best I have seen in years.
I need to go to the grocery store.
I guess I shouldn't have left my cart behind eh?
I am officially out of edible food in my apartment. Oh Dominoes Man.
Conversations with clerks volume 9
Clerk: (Talking on the phone)
Clerk: (To phone) Then what happened? You went down on him in the bathroom at your mama's house.
Clerk: (To phone) Hang on girl. Let me get a customer. I will be right back.
Clerk: Can I help you sir?
Me: Does that phone have a speaker phone option? This is far more interesting than what I had planned.
Clerk: (Shaking her head) If you only knew.
Disappointment to my parents
Ralph did this to us. C'mon the rest of the LOSLI crew - ante up!
If I could be a scientist . . .
I would figure out how to time travel. There are times and places I want to see, hear, feel, and taste!
If I could be a musician . . .
I would . . . hey wait! I am a musician and my dad was proud. We used to play violin duets together. We both sang in the choir and better yet, his two grandsons sing as well.
If I could be a doctor . . .
I would figure out a way to stop pain.
If I could be a painter . . .
Well, I do paint. I even had a couple in galleries. Not much now . . . my favorite artists are Manet, Chagall, and Rothko.
If I could be an Innkeeper . . .
I would have a Bed and Breakfast where time stopped when you stepped thru the door. That way, you could take a break from the rushing occurances of life, to be with loved ones, friends, or just have a moment or two to yourself. The caveat would be that the longer you stayed the more you faded from real life. If you stayed too long, no one would recognize you on return.
New victims: Gary at American Regression, Adam at The Questions to Your Answers, and American On Line
Jess : tag you're it
You've been named as one of the next victims in the "turd in a punchbowl" meme . . . enjoy ;)
Disappointment to my parents
Ralph has dared all of us to take up the challenge of telling the world how we disappointed our parents or something. I would be a beer sampler at the Amstel Light factory. If I could be a musician… I would confuse Disc Jockeys because I would mix types of music and beats. If I could be a doctor… I'd be a proctologist, because I like Ralph am an ass man. If I could be a painter… I would like to paint in a similar style to Van Gogh. Who knows why, but I always liked his work. If I could be an innkeeper…
If I could be a scientist…
Ironically this was always my dream job, growing up I always wanted to be a hotel manager. I think the guy from Pretty Woman inspired me.

Possible names for Britney's baby....
With inspiration from Ken is a Verb, I too have decided to name Britney's baby.
Earl ( It just fits)
Boudreaux (Going back to Brit's Cajun roots)
Keneshewa (After Kevin's fondness for Asian women)
Booda (Misspelled intentionally they are in Hollywood and all ya know.)
Ashton (Britney's Fantasy)

Pear (Either Sex - Apple was taken by that Paltrow whore)
Junebug - (And why the hell not)
Brittanica - (Now not only an encyclopedia)
Julep (The relationship began after a months worth of solid pounding mint juleps)
Mojita (Because it is like so... fashionable to be latin, even if you are a blonde from S. Louisiana)
Heidi (Kevin really wishes he could have been around during the Heidi Fleis era)
Shar (Because it is a good name and has absolutely nothing to do with Kevin's ex, really.)
Honda (Because Harley was so.... 2004)
Tuedawgsfukkin (Inspired from a chance meeting between Britney and a large Native American man at a Washington State Trading Post)

Jess weighs in on the Papacy, religion and everything else.
So....I noticed a lot of hope amongst progressives that the catholic church would move toward a more modern direction. Problem is, guys and gals, brace yourself. Seriously, sit down. You sitting? Good.
The leaders of the Catholic church are not a speedy group. Don't believe me? Well... Let me show you something. From OPED NEWS July 2004.
- As billions of Christians and Muslims throughout the world waited with rapt anticipation, it finally happened. The Pope, on June 24, 2004 apologized for the annihilation of Constantinople (currently called
- Three hundred million Eastern Orthodox Christians were ecstatic about the long overdue apology. The world rejoiced. The multitudes went wild, taking to the streets in celebrations never before seen. Finally, world peace is at hand. The apology that we were all waiting for now is a reality.
- As we all know, the sacking of Constantinople (known as the Fourth Crusade) was one of the most significant historical events between the fall of the Roman Empire and the discovery of
Americain the New World. It changed the course of world civilization. It changed the history
Relax, it may happen, but probably not in our great great great grand children's lifetimes. Just my opinion... though, and I am but a humble recovering methodist.
Conversation with ex in Grocery store (Bumped again for updates)
Her: Uh, this is awkward.
Her: You talk all the time. Why are you so quiet.
Me: I must have a lump in my throat.
Her: Hey Jess, I know you are hurt. I think I still love you a lot. Lets start over.
Her: You are too quiet tonight it is scary to see you not talk... I need my joke cracking wise ass Jess.
Her: Say something.
Me: Gotta go.
Her: Can I call you sometime? I really want to clear things up.
Her: You left your cart.
Me: (To myself) Fuck the cart. I have to get some air.
Her: I never meant to hurt you.
Me: (Walking away)
Her: Jesse stop.
Me: (To myself) Just keep walking Jess, don't ever look back.
The comments have gotten interesting. She appears to be asking other commenters for their help. I dunno, I guess I need you all's help.Whadaya think? Really lay it on me, and well her for that matter.
*UPDATE # 2*Wow. Just wow. One more wow?
How about my Nuggets?
How about some kind words for me on Ellis Island?
I called her after passing her in traffic, told her not to drive in the passing lane at a slow pace. She told me that I was crazy, but it was nice to hear me again. Then work happened, call waiting happened, life happened, and I had to go....
Will I call her again? Probably.

Rusty Wallace and his sponsor Miller Lite are on the "Last Call" tour for his retirement on this final season. My question is being that Mark Martin is retiring as well, and his sponsor is Viagra is he on the "Coming Up One Last Time" tour?
I really think Tim Duncan is the spawn of Satan. Besides Melo is better than Lebron, we all need to cheer for the underdog. Go Nuggets.
Well, I'll be damned. From ESPN
Andre Miller scored 31 points and Denver held San Antonio without a field goal for more than 10 minutes of the fourth quarter Sunday as the Nuggets defeated the Spurs 93-87 in the opening game of their first-round playoff series.

My kind of lawyer
I would probably hire him if I was in trouble in LA.
Los Angeles criminal defense attorney Ronald Miller does more than file his briefs, he also takes them off.
Miller spends some days in front of a judge and many nights in front of a camera, where he's known as Don Hollywood, porn star. Miller has performed in more than 90 films in the past seven years.
The 56-year-old lawyer says he reveals his night job to his clients and says he's had no trouble balancing the two careers.
He's currently working on more than 30 cases. And how does his wife feel about it? No problem. She's a porn star too.
He genuinely puts his meat where he gets his bread.
I am so sorry to hear about your grand daughter. I know that you are going through a hard time. I want you to know that we love you over at LOSLI. Please Penny should you need help or guidance or just a someone to talk to, you can come to me anytime. I truly hope that your life finds those rays of sunshine, and the smile that your writing expounded.

P.S. You are the best cyber mama in the world.
Talking to tangueray n tonic
Me: TnT huh? Like dynamite.
Me: I always called you boxing gloves and condoms.
Me: You want to know why?
Me: Because I know people that like to fight when they drink you. Me I personally preferred the condom part... Ya know fightin or f***ing?
Me: I need a life.... I seem to have stooped to new lows, talking to alcohol. I gotta go.
Is there no center?
Just because I am a little left of center does not mean that I am a communist, a socialist, or a detractor of the troops. I am really sick of the generalizations. I support our troops, I believe in capitalism, I believe in the American dream. I own guns, I hunt, I do not belong to the NRA, I am your neighbor, your friend.

Conversation with a taco.
Me: Uh, I kind of quit eating tacos for a while.
Me: But it is good to be back in the taco eating sector of our society.
Me: It is not that I quit liking tacos. That is not the case at all. I love tacos, it is that tacos reminded me of this girl who used to serve me tacos.
Me: It brought back bad memories of C.
Me: It was a bad deal. Quit looking at me like that. Food is not supposed to be painful.
Me: I am over all that though and ready to enjoy tacos again.
Taco: Dude you really have issues. Major ones at that, but go ahead and tell the taco about the girl, the one that got away, or broke your heart or whatever.
Me: Another time.

Conversations with counter help volume 1.
Picture it. Fort Worth, TX. A fast food chain whose name rhymes with Barbies, and has a funny looking cowboy hat on their sign. Your fearless blogger forced to go in.... because the lady at the window tinting shop told him not to roll down his windows for three days. 8:00 PM.
Me: (Looking at empty restaurant)You all are really poppin tonight eh?
Counter Clerk: (A large young woman with dirty blonde hair and barbecue sauce stains on her uniform.) Yeah we are. What are you having?
Me: I am not sure yet. What is good?
CC: I really like the cheesesticks.
Me: That is drunk food. That is like 3:00am Denny's stuff after a night of Canadian Hunter with two Puerto Ricans.
CC: I used to have a fake ID but I gave it to the police officer when he raided a bar.
Me: Always a good idea.
CC: So... What are you having?
Me: A roast beef sandwich, a small curly fry, and a large diet coke.
CC: Here is your cup. Fill it with what you want.
Me: OK. (Walk over to soda fountain )
Manager: You doing alright man?
Me: I get better all the time. How about you?
Manager: I am alright.
Me: Thats good. (Punching the Diet Dr. Pepper button)
Manager: Are you a married man?
Me: Let me tell you something about my wife. She does not write, she does not call, not even a gawd damn e-mail from her. I thought for a while her e-mails were getting held up in my spam guard, but that was not the case.... Hell, I have not even met her yet.
Manager: Is that some slick way of saying no?
Me: (Thinking gawd I hope he does not try and set me up with his sister or something) I guess so.
Manager: Let me tell you a thing or about women and marriage.
Me: (Thinking to myself "This ought to be good".) OK.
Manager: Uh yeah. Imagine them doing the worst possible thing to you. If you could take them back after that you know they are keepers. My ex wife she stole money from me and then fucked around on me.
CC: You can't say the f-word to a customer.
Me: It is alright. So, you say ex.... I guess she wasn't the one eh?
Manager: He is cool, we can cuss in front of him.
CC: Well then, here is your fucking sandwich.
Me: Can I have some sauce.
CC: Fucking aye.
Me: Both kinds please.
CC: You bet your sweet white ass. Mo fucker.
Manager: Umm, lets not call him that.
Me: It's cool. (Thinking "she is whiter than me."
Manager: Fuck it then.
Me: You guys have a good night.

Once upon a time when Colorado was populated with people that actually knew how to drive…
The city didn’t shut down until we had 3 feet of snow and you still had to go to school. Well, okay, that might be an exaggeration but I’m sure there’s a picture of me somewhere waiting for the bus in 3 feet of snow.
Anyway… while I was out driving around in the “blizzard of 05” in the Honda Civic that didn’t slide once… others were holed up in their dwellings watching the news.
Did anyone else laugh when they said most church services were cancelled with the exception of all Catholic Mass services? I know I did.

Ex: Yeah. Whatever that means.
Me: Right. So whats up?
Ex: Do you ever think about us?
Me: Umm. Not really.
Ex: We could have been great.
Me: Perhaps, but you cheated on me at a Dave Matthews band concert.
Ex: Well, but.....
Me: Besided I do not think about the past. I will not go to any of my highschool or college reunions, I am in the present the future is coming but I have enough shit to worry about with what's happening today, No time to think about yesterday.
Ex: When was the last time you thought about me?
Me: About a second ago. I am currently.
Ex: So, I never crossed your mind at all?
Me: Well, no. Not really. I remembered you when I went somewhere we had been but that is about it.
Ex: You free for dinner?
Me: I was yesterday.
Ex: I don't get it.

Creature of habit
I get into routines. I stop at the same place for coffee everyday. It actually is not coffee. It is a latte or mocha or something. I let the coffee girl make me what I call "bartender's choice" so I never know what I am going to get. I had not stopped at my coffee shop lately and I guess it drew concern.
Text message from coffee girl.
"Hey did you find a new coffee girl or what? I am worried."
"Never you are still my favorite in the whole wide world."
"Good, so will you be in today?"
"On my way"
"Good. I've missed you."
It is nice to know that I am missed by a coffee girl. Yes guys she is.... ya know.... beautiful.

Litmus test for bumper stickers
If you are going to get a bumpersticker that says "Princess" then another that says "Cutie" it is highly recommended that you be at least one of these things. Today I saw a blue Mazda Miata with both of these stickers on it driving. I caught myself getting a little bit excited. I decided I must take a gander. Big mistake. The driver was scary looking. She was one of those girls that could "make a freight train take a dirt road"
My advice to her get a friend to help you pick out bumperstickers. Preferably a friend with some common sense and judgement. I am sure she is a cool girl, I just hope the car was borrowed.
Just Jess pondering.
I have a guilty pleasure, listening to overnight AM radio..... Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. I guess my reason for this is, no matter how weird I think I am if I listen to that show, I feel "normal."
That being said, I rarely listen to day time talk radio. I just think most hosts on both sides of the spectrum are arrogant pricks. I can not stand Rush Limbaugh nor Al Franken. I think Hannity is about as informative as talking to my lamp. Ed Schultz is a fucking sellout.
Why do I bring this up? Today I listened to "The Citizen Journalist Report" I must say I did laugh. Jeff Goldstein (Protein Wisdom) is funny blogging or talking. Bill Ardolino (INDC Journal)is a good host as well. I listened to the LGF segment. I may not agree with much of what Charles Johnson writes but the show humanized him.
So.... Support the boys and their new endeavor.
Conversations with Microsoft Excel Volume 2
Me: I guess we need to get along. Ya know call a truce.
Me: I have just used Word more and all ya know? Just a familiarity issue.
Excel: Well dumbass, how many Excel classes have you taken?
Me: Uh 2..... I think.
Excel: You got nothing from those classes?
Excel: What were you doing trying to meet girls or learn Excel? Come on dumbass.
Excel: You make me sick.
Me: Watch it, or I will control-alt-delete your ass.
Me: That's what I thought.
Me: Sorry, man. I think all this coverage of the pope and Terri Schiavo before that have me stressed. The news seems to be nonstop death lately. I am not downplaying the situations but damn, I just want something happy every once in a while. Hell I would settle for Britneyv/ Kevin gossip at this point.
Excel: Breathe. Just relax. Damn you need some Ridlin or something dude. You make me nervous always pacing and shit.
A little advice from Jess to the blonde in the mall parking lot.
You are a beautiful women. You are young (probably 25), you look good, you can do better than the 35 year old guy with the mullet and AC / DC shirt calling you the worst name a women can be called. Seriously. WTF do you see in him? It is sad. I am sorry you are treated that way.
Rick who runs one of my favorite conservative websites (DC) has sent me some questions to answer.... Ok, here is my endorsement of DC.
Reading D.C. is like listening to a great politician speak....before the system corrupted them.
1) You made an interesting statement in a comment one time that Iwanted to follow up. You said that you (a not flaming liberal, but aDemocrat nonetheless) and I (a social, economic, and nat'l securityconservative ... an evangelical Christian) are "not all thatdifferent". Explain what you meant by that comment.
We both want what is best for this fine republic that we both live in. We may see the route to the promised land a little differently, but we both want the American dream. Besides I believe that we probably both put on our pants the same way.... One leg at a time. I do not remember the exact reason I said that, it may have been just to say that "hey man we may may not agree, but I think you are alright."
2) I heard that maybe ... just maybe ... you used to be a Republican.Is this so, and if so ... what caused the change? If not, just giveus a paragraph description of your political philosophy.
The simple answer, George W. Bush and his band of neocons. I simply could not associate myself with a group that had so much hate for the civil liberties, love of budget deficits, and disregard for states rights. The party ideals seem to be driven by a small group of people that were taking the party down a road that I did not feel comfortable on.
My political philosophy is a fiscally conservative socially liberal one. I do not feel as if bureaucrats in Washington should dictate what a women in Des Moines, Iowa can do with her body. I believe every life is prescious but that sometimes a women must make a choice and that choice is hers and hers alone. I am in favor of the death penalty. I am all for the N.A.F.T.A. trade agreement. I believe that every american should have an equal shot. I believe in the American Dream, I believe that anybody can do great things. I believe that the government is here to support not carry people. I am a fan of workfare.
3) Tell us about your personal (work, social, blogging ... whateveryou care to share) plans and goals. Where do you see yourself in fiveyears?
My goals are to be the best at whatever I am doing. Period. I am going to be somewhere doing the best that I can be. Work, I doubt that I will be able to retire at 31 so, I would like to be doing something that I love to do, which incidentally I do now. Blogging is day to day. Social who knows.
4) You are able to have dinner with one person, any person. Name theperson, and tell us about how you would like to see the evening go.(Assume that people even younger than you might read this answer ...ahem ... assume your answer could be
read over the airwaves).
I would like to have dinner with Warren Buffet. He is an amazing business person, an innovator, and I have been told a very nice person.
5) Who are your political or ideological heroes and why?
Tough one Rick. My dad has always been one of my heroes and still is to this day. Politically I like John McCain, I may not agree with all of his politics, I admire his drive and his willingness to work together with his colleagues. Another political one would have to be Ken Salazar Sen. CO, he is truly the American dream.

Have you ever seen a gas station within 15 miles of the refinery with gas prices above $2.35 a gallon? To me that is unfuckingbelievable.
Someone forgot to pay their hotel bill.
The letter written by the hotel's accountant Kirsten Yunuba Stephens, said: "My question to you: Is this how you help balance the budget at the White House by ripping off retailers in the towns you visit? If that is the case please do not come back to the Rogue Valley."
Dumb fucking athletes.
Not content with tanking his NBA career and fathering four illegitimate children while on the road, Shawn Kemp gets busted for cocaine and marijuana possession while hotboxing a truck behind a carwash.
Move the fuck out of the way.
Since the patrol started enforcing the "Left Lane Law" three months ago, troopers have written about 460 tickets or about an average of five a day to drivers who dawdle in the left lane.

R.I.P. Mitch Hedberg 1968 - 2005
Between the wall to wall coverage of the deaths of the Pope and Terri Schiavo, coverage of Mitch's death was shuffled to be a page 7 story.
ST. PAUL -- Mitch Hedberg, a Minnesota-born comedian who worked in nightclubs, college campuses, television and film in a wide-ranging career, and who struggled with drugs and alcohol, died in New Jersey, his family said. He was 37.
Hedberg died Wednesday in a hotel room in Livingston, N.J. Pending the medical examiner's report, the cause of death appears to be heart failure, said his mother, Mary Hedberg. She said her son was born with a heart defect and frequently felt anxious about his condition.
Mary Hedberg said speculation that her son's death was drug-related was gossip.
A hit on "The Late Show With David Letterman," on which he appeared 10 times, and "The Howard Stern Show," Hedberg once was dubbed "the next Seinfeld" by Time magazine. But TV-series fame eluded him because his unique style of mumbled one-liners didn't lend itself to the sitcom format. His rambling, non-sequitur style often drew comparisons to Steven Wright, but Hedberg disagreed.
A few of my favorite of Mitch's famous one liners.
I had a bag of fritos, they were texas grilled fritos. These fritos had grill marks on them. They remind me of something, when we used to fire up the barbeque and throw down some fritos. I can still see my dad with the apron on, better flip that frito, dad, you know how I like mine.
I don't have a girlfriend. But I do know a woman who'd be mad at me for saying that.
I think Pringles initial intention was to make tennis balls. But on the day that the rubber was supposed to show up, a big truckload of potatoes arrived. But Pringles is a laid back company. They said "Fuck it. Cut em up.
I would imagine if you could understand Morse Code, a tap dancer would drive you crazy.
Scenes from a sandwich shop volume 2.
After we got our sandwiches (mine a roasted chicken, hers I am not sure) we sat down. The following conversation ensued.
Jenny: Um do you remember me at all from Friday?
Me: Yes vaguely.
Jenny: Good. Just making sure.
Me: Oh yeah, how could I forget?
Jenny: Um, well you guys looked like you had been having a wild night.
Me: Yes it was wild, good I got to meet you.
Jenny: Well ya know I have a guy that I have been seeing.
Jenny: You have a girlfriend too right?
Me: I dunno what I have. Why?
Jenny: Well you were text messaging her while we were talking.
Me: Sorry, that was rude.
Jenny: Ah, it was kind of cute.
Me: Well thank you, for not being mad at me.
Jenny: I think we will be great friends.
Me: I agree. You want those chips?
Me: Had to ask.
