|Election Day rant
Voting for a new president today?? Not me,know why? Because elections are a joke,that's why.
Why do we vote for a president anyway? Every crooked politician out there is worth picking on and blaming for some wrongdoing,but who is the best candidate to pick on for the next four years?
I honestly think we subconsciously pick the best person to blame for everything wrong in the world,without shame or remorse.It makes us feel better.It's our Constitutional right to say what we want,right?Why should ignorant blame be excluded from the Bill of Rights?
I was gonna vote for Hillary if she hadn't dropped out of the Presidential race,what better person to funnel wrongdoing into than a former First Lady whose own husband fucked up the entire country himself,along with a few White House interns.She woulda been perfect! But nooooo,she let petty bickering get to her.Spineless bitch! Thanks a lot Hillary,you just set women's roles in politics back on the bottom of the political food chain.Good job*sarcastic golf clap*
Whether you vote or not,or pick a winner or not,always remember to blame the government for everything,the Constitution gave us the power to do that,I say do it.
And do it with the Pride of a true American.

|Irate is an understatement
I can't even begin to describe how incredibly angry I am right now.I wanna put a gun to someone's head and pull the trigger.
One particular someone who shall remain nameless because she is on my friends list.
Recognition for good things...Ha! What a fucking joke that is.Over the last two years I've done many good things,however,there are those who insist on only focusing on the bad things,Even if the good outweighs the bad.
Such is life. :(
Sure I pissed off a lot of people and have gained a tainted reputation,but I've also done my best to make amends with them and continue on doing the good things I am best at.
Sadly,right now I feel I have totally wasted my time,talents,and effort on those good things for someone and gone unrecognised for them.Did I ever get a "Hey,you're doing a good job"? I think I got it only ONCE from someone I needed to hear it from more often.
Maybe if I did,things would be different now.
I don't regret the choice I made in leaving the group of people I lent my talents and ideas to.I don't regret pissing them off either.Why should I? As far as I'm concerned,they lost me,I didn't lose them.
As a result,they've had to fill in the void I left behind...and I've been watching all of them from a distance fuck it all up too.Much to my never-ending gratification as time continues on.
No I don't regret anything I've done.Not one thing.
I will always remember the good things,even if someone else does not.
I shall take my anger and mistakes and learn from them and move forward on my own path,and I will make it a good one.
Fuck anyone who wants to stop me.I dare you to try. Current Mood: angry

|Chaos is an understatement
yep,Chaos is an understatement to how my life has totally fallen apart at the seams as of late.
And yes this is the rare personal entry I never like to put here 'cause no one gives a damn about me enough to read it and respond anyways.If you still love me,read on.
Job=I love my job but I'm not making enough money to get by on it as petty cash on top of what Scott makes.I really don't want to get another one because my current job pays me cash.Unreported cash.And I have IRS trouble already,I don't want to leave a paper trail just yet.I still have two years of back taxes to file.
And why haven't I filed them? Because I owe on them and I don't have the means to pay it.It's only a matter of time before it catches up with me and I end up in prison for tax evasion.Lucky me.
Home=totally fucked up. I've moved and there's still boxes everywhere.And Scott has been hounding me HARD to throw it all out.ALL of it,the bastard.He doesn't understand how difficult it is to just take a lifetime and toss it in the dumpster.He says it's easy,sure it's easy when it isn't your own stuff.
Scott=on the edge of either killing me or killing himself.He's not making enough to support both of us.He hates his job and has been on his friends ass daily to get a new job project underway so we can move again.If it goes through and gets set up,I may end up in Atlanta Georgia.Imagine how traumatic that move is gonna be for me when I've lived in Illinois/Wisconsin my whole life? Not looking forward to that possibility.
(And no I don't want to hear any bullshit replies about going to AWA,thank you.)
Me=unhinged would be a good word.I'm seriously having a problem with detatchment to toss out a whole lifetime.I'm fed up with selfish ignorance of everyone around me,both online and in the real world.As a result I'm hanging on by one last thread that is about to break.
My Chapterhouse project is off to a slow start but I'm very happy with it so far.I only wish I knew how to tap into the larger span of contact out there to get it moving a little faster.But once again,to add to my misery,keeping an internet connection has been a challenge of epic proportions and my monitor is dying fast and I don't have another one nor can get one if this thing goes.Just my fucking luck.
I wonder exactly how many people would attend my funeral if I died tomorrow?
Answer me that,then maybe I might have a reason to go on living.:( Current Mood: depressed
|Sunday, June 15th, 2008|
yep,here it is! The dreaded rare personal entry that has to be done once in a while.
Luckily for all of you,the updates are about fun stuff,and not personal "my life is crap" stuff.
First of all,while you're all here check out my new community that was made by Den and Myself "Disciples of Mist" which can be found here...http://community.livejournal.com/disciplesofmist/profile
It's basically a little place where I can be my true,unsensored self and vent my insane philosophy upon the unsuspecting masses of cyberspace.
Second update,I've started a new project on Myspace called The Chapterhouse which can be found here...http://www.myspace.com/thechapterhouse
It's a genre based group for the grownups in the fandom.No kids allowed in the group,sorry.They tend to bring too much drama with them that no one wants to see or deal with.Especially me after recent disputes among the top members of the Miniskirt Army group which I have officially "retired" from.(meaning I'm now an inactive former officer)
Which brings us to update number three,I'm still around,but I won't be doing anything active within the functions of the MSA anymore.I've refocused a few points of interest from the old MSA proboards forum(now locked)to the Sonny Sensei's Grasshoppers forum to continue a handful of things where they left off that need to be completed.Mainly an RP among a few other things of that nature.
To those who love me,I'm still here and will never be far away.To those who hated my guts and still do or have a problem with the way I handled things,I still say "Fuck you,deal with it and grow up".And that's pretty much all I have to say about that mess.My final parting gift to the MSA was an IMVU slideshow about the history of the MSA and how it came to be which has been well received so far.
Now,if after reading all that,this sounds like I'm plugging some attention to myself,that's because it is.I won't lie about that.But a time comes when you have to or need to,and this is one of those times.
As the old saying goes,"Lead,Follow,or Get the Hell out of the way"
Please Follow me on my new paths that I have laid down in the links above...for I promise to lead you into a much wider spectrum of intelligent thought in the future from this point on.
You all have my word on that. :)

|More IMVU mayhem
Yes,more IMVU mayhem.This time a little Valentine's day pairing.I even one-upped myself and made a slideshow of the comic strip this time.:) Enjoy.
|Saturday, January 5th, 2008|
I just read an article on the dangers of drinking....
Scared the shit out of me.
So that's it!
After today,no more reading.

|Happy New Year (yeah,right...)
So.....it's 2008.Still feels the same as last year.
Resolutions? Screw em!! If I didn't have motivation to change myself before,why should I have any now? Where's the incentive to change,eh? Oh sure,we all SAY we're gonna lose weight,quit smoking,and be a better person...but you know what? We're all liars after a month of trying when we give up.If you're happy as you are,don't fuck with it.If not,then you shoulda got therapy 10 years ago when it started.
I still have the same friends,same enemies,and same problems I've always had for 20 years and then some.Love me as I am or leave me the Hell alone.Your choice.
But that's what our lives all boil down to isn't it? Freedom of choice.We make or screw up our own lives through the choices we make.We either learn from them or end up in a psych ward on thorozine.
My advice...learn from the bad choices and make your life better.No resolution can do that for you.
So to all you Resolution Liars out there,give up now and go rent Weekend at Bernie's and have a good laugh before you die.
You'll be a better person for it. :)

|Gas Stations Attract Idiocracy...
As a few Skirts have seen from my away message on AIM and a random text or two...my famous quote for this weekend has been "The idiots are out in force today....and they brought friends"
Now granted,I've already seen a few pathetic souls out there at the gas station that were less than candlebright,such as these noteable nitwits...
The woman who accidentally locked her baby in the car while she got gas.She left the keys in the ignition and the doors automatically locked after idle time.(gotta love Chryslers)The excuse....her own words"I pulled the keys out just far enough to make it stop beeping"
The man who added oil to his car and left the paper funnels resting in the car engine when he closed the hood and drove off.
The twit who purchased 50 individual 1 dollar Powerball lottery tickets.No particular reason why was offered when asked.
the 15 year old trying to convince me,the STORE CASHIER,to buy him cigarettes.
And this was only the beginning.
Tonight I witnessed the ultimate act of low IQ I have EVER seen in my life.
I work in a gas station on weekends and ALL the lights and pumps are turned off after midnight for closing,so the ENTIRE fuel island and property lot is pitch black.While I'm counting inside in the dim blue lights of the coolers,the aforementioned idiots and their friends pull up to a pump and try to get gas.ALL FOUR pile out of the car trying to figure out why the pump wasn't working (all still in total darkness,mind you) and ....get this,this is the best part to lower IQ points even more....when they decided the pump was broken,drove around to ANOTHER pump to try again.(still in total darkness,mind you.Let's not forget that fact)
I finally got fed up with watching the stupidity from the windows,and locked up for the night,as I walked to my car I yelled at them "We're CLOSED!!!! GET OUT!!" the reply,.. "oh. okay...thank you"
People scare me....they really do.What scares me even more is the fact these same people are BREEDING.
Fear them for good reason and run like Hell.

|My vintage bicycle
Yesterday I finally did something I've been meaning to do for a long time....dig my old bike out of the garage and give it a bath and ride it!!! I'll have to admit,it felt strange but really good at the same time.
This is a bike my Dad bought for me when I was 6 years old aaaaallllll the way back in 1971.That makes the bike 36 years old!(eep that makes ME feel ancient!)Through some miracle I've managed to hang onto it my whole lifetime so far.I love my old bike but I may have to part with it soon to pay some bills *cries*
They don't make 'em like this anymore.....enjoy the nostalgia! :D

|Which mythical creature resides in your soul?
According to this quiz,I have a dragon in my soul.I suspected as much!! LOL!!
Which mythical creature resides in your soul? (11 Results + Pictures)
You are the dragon. A dragon, in western lore, is a giant lizard with wings. It usually has the capability to breathe fire. The dragon symbolizes immense power, physical strength, and courage. The dragon has also been a symbol of wisdom and of protection. Dragons may also appear to be greedy as many a tale depict them as keepers of vast hordes of treasure.
Take this quiz!

|Homunculus Roy as Lust
yeah,I've gotten into some more mischeif on IMVU,this time with VERY smexy results!!!
As everyone who reads FMA fanfics know,if Roy was transmutated into a Homunculus,they all unanimously agree he would be Lust.Which got me thinking...."Okay,what would Roy-Lust look like?" Comparing my human Roy avatar with the Homunculus Lust version of Roy,I think this look would be pretty accurate.
If I get enough positive reaction to this,I might be brave enough to post this to Travis' LJ too.At ACEN someone asked Travis,Mike,and Colleen which Homunculous would their character be during the FMA panel on Friday...and Travis said,"LUST,BABY!!!!...." LOL I'd love for him to see this,but I'd like to know what you think first. Drool away. :D

|A rare personal entry....
I've been away from here since New Year's and events in real life have not been kind to me.
I won't get into boring details,but the list includes;IRS trouble,facing possible eviction,severe weight loss,Paypal problems,psychotic friends,and other minor irritations that all add up to straws on a camel's back.
Basically...I'm not doing too good right now.Keeping a sane frame of mind has been difficult.My new obsession has been IMVU 3-D chat and I've taken that obsession one step further and registered as a product developer.
Maybe that will help keep my mind off things for a while if I have something to channel my frustrated energy into.
Wish me luck.

|My IMVU page
In case everyone didn't know by now,I'm on IMVU and I think I've sent an invite to just about EVERYONE I have an email for to join me in there.
As you can see by the avatar picture,that's Roy and Lust.I made avatars for both of them and it was a lot of fun.
My home page there sucks because I can't do anything with it other than put "stickers" on it.I covered up my info because I don't anyone to see it anymore.While I chat,people check the page and when they find out how old I am,they leave.
NO MORE!!! It stays covered with the Mustang picture!!! BWAHAHAHA!!!!!!
There's TONS of cosplay stuff in there to make anime character avis,it's lots of fun.Come and join me if you haven't done so already! Click here...http://imvu.com/catalog/web_invitation.php?userId=5415573&from=power-email
See ya there!!

|URGENT!! Please read!!!!
This is upsetting, thought I should pass it along. Check your drivers license... Now you can see anyone's Driver's License on the Internet, including your own! I just searched for mine and there it was...picture and all! Thanks Homeland Security! Privacy, where Is our right to it?
I definitely removed mine, I suggest you all do the same..... Go to the website and check it out. Just enter your name, City and state to see if yours is on file. After your license comes on the screen, click the box marked "Please Remove". This will remove it from public viewing, but not from law enforcement.http://www.license.shorturl.com/
