Enough Already!


who do you think you are?
running around leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
and tearing love apart
you’re gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
so don’t come back for me
don’t come back at all
–Christina Perry

Ok, I get it. Who do I think I am? I’ve crossed the line. I’ve made comments in your blog that appear inappropriate. Well, if you had turned on the option to approve comments before they get posted, this wouldn’t have been an issue. But nonetheless, I deserve the reprimand. I take full responsibility. It just hurts when you mean well, you end up being misunderstood.

I’m a guy who has an opinion on a lot of things. I love to give it freely even when it’s not solicited. At times, I’ve failed to pay attention to how it would be received. Worse, I’ve got the true message lost in translation.

I admit that I’m not a native English speaker and that I still have to master its subtlety. This must explain the reason why when I try to be funny, it doesn’t come across that way. or when I intend to be only kidding, folks would think I’m deadly serious with my teeth clenching. That being said, having English as a second language is no excuse for being insensitive to other people’s feelings. and, if I may add, most especially to yours, which I value highly. I’m so sorry.

You’re right. I blab too much. I’m a smart aleck. I’m a party nightmare come true. In my hubris, I can’t contain myself when I’m in the ‘been there, done that’ frame of mind. I tend to forget that truth can be relative and that stupidity can lead one to believe that he’s wiser than he really is.

As a result, I’m taking a sabbatical on posting comments in any blog as a self-imposed punishment. I’ll retreat to my own little shell for now. Darn, it would be hard, but I’m sure you’re not the only one applauding. If I get past the critical first week, I’d make it. For old good time’s sake, you could at least wish me luck.

Look @ Her Picture! Then Ignore


 
A friend from Hawaii forwarded a message to me requesting that I send it to everybody in my address list. It’s about soliciting help for finding a missing girl. Here’s what the e-mail says:

Please look at the picture, read what her mother says, then forward this message on..
My 13 year old girl, Ashley Flores, is missing…
She has been missing for two weeks now.
Maybe if everyone passes this on, someone will see this child.
That is how the girl from Stevens Point was found, by circulation of her picture on TV…. The Internet circulates even overseas, South America , and Canada etc.
Please pass this to everyone in your address book.
With GOD on her side, she will be found.
I am asking you all, begging you to please forward this email on to anyone and everyone you know, PLEASE.
It is still not too late. Please help us. If anyone knows anything, please contact me at:

It only takes 2 seconds to forward this…
If it was your child, you would want all the help you could get!!

Who doesn’t have a soft heart for a missing child like Ashley Flores?

Nothing Left to Hide



Advances in technology have paved new and better ways to communicate, such as cell phones and instant messaging, which eventually led to the demise of old standbys like the telegraph. The last telegraph or telegram, depending on when you were born, was sent by western union on January 27, 2006.

Long Lost Relative Found

spider web

It looks like Y’d survive from the spider bite I suffered last Sunday. The fear of an impending death has been a product of my hyperactive imagination. My neck doesn’t bother me anymore and the tingling sensation on the right side of my face is gone. I’m starting to feel good all over. I’m on the road to full recovery.
