“Love is blind” *wretches*

This show is hot garbage. I’ve got some notes that could spice it up a bit.

  1. They aren’t allowed to leave the show until they’ve picked a spouse (If they try to leave, they’re fugitives with a death sentence)
  2. it’s a mad rush to get the good spouses, So they would need to throw some obviously ugly personalities in there (who would have ugly faces too)
  3. also, they’re not allowed to get divorced (nick lachey would kill them at some point in the future)
  4. also, the contestants are selected randomly from a cross-section of the general public
  5. also, one person would be a death row inmate fighting for their freedom (which one is it? what did they do? Sub-plot!)

for real though, it’s a train wreck. Nick lachey is in it for a total of three minutes. It’s so contrived, it has no soul.

It’s one of my vices (sp?)

If you want something bad enough, and your heart is pure, and you use a vice grip, you will achieve success. Right?

Apparently, it’s spelled Vise grip. Who knew? Have a great Sunday!

true intimacy



Is this funny, or sad?  I think a lot of people see romance as a means to an end, and that end isn’t always healthy relational intimacy.  I wouldn’t be surprised if most people could put one or two of their own lines they’ve said or had said to them in Charlie’s last speech bubble and make this comic into a true story.

don’t play with fire


2013-3-22bI am terrified of starting barbecues, oil lamps, gas fireplaces, camp stoves, gas stoves, and pretty much anything that requires a lighter and a regulating valve.  I’m terrified of the lighter not sparking properly, the fumes getting out of hand in the meantime, and then when the lighter finally ignites, the fumes are caught and i am consumed in a ball of fire.  Honestly.  This fear may be irrational, and actually is ACTUALLY irrational.  But!  It was ingrained in me as a kid!  don’t play with fire.  DON’T PLAY WITH FIRE, or else the rescue-911 people will come, and then OUR house will be the one on the TV.  BUT!  then, 20 years later, you get to be an adult, and YOU HAVE TO PLAY WITH FIRE.  TO HEAT YOUR HOME.  and COOK THE FOODS.  MAN!

MY GOODNESS is it ever a good thing that my wife Diana is not afraid of any of this.  If she were afraid, our house would be FREEZING.  It is very cold in the house right now, and Diana is not here, which means that I will have to warm myself with a cup of coffee, and my dog coffee.  BRRRRR!  Best part of marriage- covering each other’s fears off.  woot!  Maybe not the best part, but a benefit to be sure.

Apologies for all of the caps-lock yelling in this post.  I have to yell to keep warm.
(it’s actually only like 5 degrees Celsius, not even really that cold.)
