ok, this is gross

make that 2 mice....... how was Jerry able to outsmart/outrun Tom for all those years? These cats here are killing machines.

just like Tom and Jerry, only not as funny

I found a dead mouse on the kitchen floor this morning. One of our cats bit the little critter's face off. It looks like the mouse came from a hole in the wall that I've never noticed before but which the cats have been guarding all morning. I don't know how the mouse found its way inside, but I'm reminded of a something I learned in science class long ago. There was once a theory (back when "science" was more drunken speculation than drunken reasoning) that claimed that organic matter could appear out of thin air, basically. The scientist who made such a claim (and whose name eludes me) set out to prove it by making a mouse appear out of a rag that he stuffed in a closed bottle. Needless to say, the experiment failed, and presumably the "scientist" went on to become a senator or president or something. But I believe his theory is relevant in this case. I can offer no explanation for this mouse appearance other than spontaneous matter conversion from the sheet-rock inside the wall. I'll make more observations later.

how will this make me money?

I didn't realize that I was selling any products or services. Maybe I should start selling stuff. Does anyone want to buy photographs?? Maybe I should sell hair growth pills like this company thinks I do:

It could work to both our advantages as our products are not in competition with each other but may be equally interesting to people visiting our sites. Our site has undergone substantial renovations. A whole new look, many new products and easier than ever to navigate. Come and see at Yours truly, Darren Gaspar, President

where am I?

hey, I haven't updated this in quite a few days. What have I done in that time? Nothing really. There were things I wanted to say, but I just realized that they're not important. I think I lost a friend (again). easy come, easy go this picture sums up my childhood (not really):


So, it turns out the infamous sniper might be Jamaican. Therefore, I'm listening to Bob Marley right now..... The suspect is also a Gulf War veteran. Ironic, no? I'm reminded of the scene in Full Metal Jacket and this dialog:
(Referring to Lee Harvey Oswald and mass murderer Charles Whitman) Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, Drill Instructor: Do any of you people know where these individuals learned how to shoot?... Private Joker.Private Joker: Sir! In the Marines, Sir! Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, Drill Instructor: In the Marines! Outstanding! Those individuals showed what one motivated Marine and his rifle can do. And before you ladies leave my Island, you will all be able to do the same thing.
Incidentally, one of my favorite movie quotes comes from this movie:
I wanted to meet stimulating and interesting people of an ancient culture, and kill them. I wanted to be the first kid on my block to get a confirmed kill.
If you haven't seen Full Metal Jacket, I recommend it. Forget about all this patriotic, pro-war, anti-"terrorist" shlock that's coming out of Hollywood these days.
