Thanks, I needed that...

Weee. Go you.
How much more should you know about Monty Python?

In a painful twist of fate, I've been forced to end all physical/verbal interaction with my parents. particularly hard considering my young son. I can't believe this is my life.

Thank god for Alicia and Nicholas though, having them in my life gives me the strength to do what I know in my heart is right for all of us.

I cannot allow the poison that is my family to infect my son, I simply cannot. So I will give him hugs and kisses and tell him I love him every chance I get. I will keep the insanity that nearly destroyed me so many times away from him. I will do it for him and me and Alicia. I will do it at all costs. Even if those costs are my parents.

I won't tell the story, so it will be technically impossible for anyone to judge, but I must get this out before I explode.

Thanks,
Wry...

P.S. this has been going on over a month now, not just some bad fight that will blow over... For what it's worth...

You are all going to buy this game. You'll lie about it. You'll even denounce it publicly, but you WILL buy it and secretly laugh your ass off...

It's out of my hands.

Well Spank my ass and call me Charlie. I'm Sir Lancelot!

Launcelot
You are Sir Launcelot.
Heroicly you are stereotyped into rescuing damsels
in distress...only you get confused and rescue
the wrong sex sometimes. You look for fights
in all the wrong places, and pretend your
friends and loved ones are hurt to dramaticly
avenge their murder. You might be too brave for
your britches.

This weeks' 'Out of Context' Joke, compliments of Happa's Blog:

<'In the last year Jonathan has gained 15 pounds and has grown 13 inches'>

I guess I shouldn't have been so quick to dismiss some of those pop-up ads. Lucky bastard! :-)

In the last year I think I have gained 20lbs and shrunk a quarter inch.... (Take that as you will :-)

I was hoping to have more time. I have really meant to speak with you all. I have tons of congrats and sympathies and miss-you's to pass out copriciously from my many boxes of need-to's. But of course, like a republican around a pro-choice bill, I just couldn't get around to doing it. (I'm pro-choice yada yada, get over the analogy). I have been buried under work. I wish I was able to read and blog more, and hopefully will be able to sometime soon.

I did get home by 11:30pm Friday night after walking from Wall street to Atlantic avenue Brooklyn, hitching a ride to Queens Plaza and then 'Asking', so all is good...

I have to run but Chyna, Blixx, Paul, Brenda, So many blessings and best wishes to you.

Mike, so sorry about your grandfather :-(

The best to EVERYONE!

Things are going very well with me. So well I have kind of dropped off the map to dedicate myself more deeply to my wife and son, but I plan to have my time management vastly improved soon.

Always,
Wry

P.S. oh my god Rhinogirl. Nearly blew a gasket on that plate LOLOL. "Seize the Joke!"

Welcome to the great blackout of 2003. I am stuck in the City, 2 hours from home by rail. There's nowhere to go and no way to get there. Dig in kiddies, because this is sucking with a capital SUCK.


Hope you all are well and Safe.

Remember, you heard it here 1,233rd... :-)

Prayers, Prayers and more Prayers for you Boogie. I would say more, but I am one of those VERY impressionable people that gets ghost (no relation) pains when he reads/hears abbout something and I am sad to say my 'tit' is really hurting and I keep grabbing it to remind myself that I am not really cut and sore and oh well to tell the truth it feels kinda nice :-)

Rhino, thank you so much for the well wishes! It is the best feeling when someone thinks of you like that!!!

Skye, UIM, Miss you guys...

Paul and Brenda, Can't wait to see the little Smithlett!

Tempest, keep living the way you do, that way even when you fail you'll be alive and valuable through it all. I sill hope we get to have you guys over the house sometime for a visit...

Chyna, I'll never use the term 'Nice Jugs' EVER again :-) Best wishes!!!

Happa, Thanks for giving me something to laugh at, it's invaluable!

Angel (Angel Says), Still not sleeping (see below) bod God Damn if that kid is not cute as hell! :-)


Life has been rough. The baby wasn't sleeping much and last night he didn't sleep at all. Runny nose, sneezing, cutting 3 new teeth... We found out today that he also has an ear infection, so that makes this his first official full-blown FUBAR! :-) Even through all that he still managed to keep smiling most of the time and play with us through it... God I love that kid.

unfortunately for us parents, 3 hours of sleep a night don't make well adjusted relaxed people who get along with eachother... Sorry honey, I love you and I know we won't have to work this hard forever!

Wife is going to Cali with her step mom and the baby tomorrow. We are all very nervous, but I know it'll be a great experience for her and the baby. I can't wait to hear about it when they come back...

Well, that's it for now. Talk to you all soon.

A lot of stuff, but some love ;-) - Pointless parady of Skye's signoff. Why? Man, I hate having to answer questions like that. Sometimes things just happen you know? Not like it's funny or anything, that would take work!

Wry...

Woops, Sorry Nightskye, wrong Angel! See 'Angel Says' link to the left. I should have been a little clearer, it's so unlike me to quickly act on something and not take the time to get all my facts straight too ;-)

Thursday, May 29, 2003

Angel is determined to reduce me to tears of envy. Nicholas has been waking up and or staying up continuously from 11pm to 2 am most nights...The pain!!! I wasn't planning on posting today until I read how her twins BOTH sleep through the night easily, I think I'm going to be sick. I mean don't get me wrong, I'm happy for you I really am, but from where I am, all I wanna do is puke... :-)

Oh and get this, (Keep in mind that I absolutely ADORE my son. He is the happiest most beautiful little guy I ever saw, it's just I need sleep man.) He has a new counter-productive sleep routine now. For some reason, he insists on, in mid sleep mind you, pulling the binky out of his mouth, flinging his arm behind his back and flicking it away. THEN 5 seconds later (at the most) he starts flailing his arm around looking for it as if it should have hung in mid air waiting for him. This not only is NOT cute, but causes him to wake up crying like 5 times more often then before this new habbit. All I can say is WTF????

Who me? ask me in a couple weeks. :-)

Miss you (and other adults in general) all,
Wryguy

My goodness, it's been almost two months since my last post. Holy crap, I feel like I'm 10 years older...

Anyone know how to get a 9 month-old to sleep at night without giving him sedatives???

Sleep, ugh, sleep, need sleep!!!

Good luck ALLY! Come home safe...and early! :-)
Happa: My best to you and your family and have a wonderful birthday for the little one. Ours turns 8 months next week, it is the best time of our lives...
Angel: Hope things turn around for you. I know how much being sick can suck and I hope you all get better soon!

To everyone else: All the best in everything you do! Have a great week!

Monday, March 24, 2003

Whuh...huh? Good gravy this isn't the link to GOATS? Holy crap blogger, remember that? Oops, yea, I guess you do. It's been a while hasn't it? I hope everyone is doing well, not that you'll likely read this as I am sure most of you are convinced that I either died or turned to selling flowers in paper pants at the airport...

In any event, a lot has happened. The baby got Christened, he got is first haircut, his first ear infection and his first tastes of bananas and stage three foods. He'll be 8 months next week. To quote Rhinogirl "Great Googly Moogley" and no I don't know who the "CHEFS" are...

As far as me, I got the privilage of the worst illness of my life so far (or pretty damn bad anyway). I woke up with a little caugh on a Saturday, and by that night was immobile. I had a 103 temperature for the next 4 days and a nice case of Flu AND Bronchitis to deal with. You know how they say "You may have a Flu if you have any of the following symptoms:" well I had them all, it sucked really bad. Then to make things even better, I had a reaction to my medication, dizzyness and disorientation being the GOOD parts of it, life sucked for just a little while there.

My poor wife was stuck doing EVERYTHING and when the baby got sick with his combo ear infection-cold, was left to take care of both of us (Did I mention the baby got sick while I was sick...). She somehow held it together and got us all through it. In my book there is no superman, just her.

Anyway, the nice weather has been so welcomed, we got to go to the park and for a nice walk yesterday and I really started to feel good and human again so I wanted to drop you all a line and let you know I miss you all and I hope you are all doing well. I am making every effort to start reading blogs, but I am so far behind it has been a daunting task...

quick take on recent events:

The War:
I support our troops. I respect what they are doing and what they are putting on the line to do it. I never make the mistake of imposing my like or dislike of the goverment and it's decisions onto the people who choose to believe in the system and plegde their lives to that faith. I believe the troops are a symbol of bravery, faith and strength and that is unwavering.
I think George Bush is a bitter child who thinks he is going to fix the world by redeeming his father's failure.
I think the war is a huge mistake. I don't believe there is a person we can kill or a place we can destroy that will make the world think better of us or stop wanting to kill us.
I think it's absolutely OBSCENE that the president has chosen to take money away from educating his own people in order to pay for this war. But then why should he care, no one he knows goes to public schools.
I Believe that we absolutely could have waited longer for diplomacy and I am APPALLED that George Bush continually references 9-11 to justify his actions. It is no secret that IRAQ had NOTHING to do with what happened directly. I think it's a travesty to drag the tragedy those families endured around to promote the war effort. You cannot just declare 9-11 like a magic word to make Americans get behind you.
I think it is a sign of stupidity that George Bush keeps saying that Amercia has been trying to get Iraq disarmed for 12 years, implying that it was persued with anywhere near the level of earnest that is was immediately preceeding the war. I'd personally like to slap that pissy little brat smile off his face every times he balks at questions about waiting longer. Where are all the U.N. resolutions and actions the U.S.A. lobbied for during those 12 years? I'll tell you, NOWHERE. Why? Because we didn't particualarly care about the status of Iraq and maybe even let time go by just for the opportunity to use the surrender agreement for levereage later.
I do firmly believe that this is a war of vanity. A war of Pride and a War of a bully doing what he wants even when the world tells him otherwise. What do you think is going to happen George Bush? Do you know who is watching? Korea, India, Iran... What are all the countries that hate us going to think every time we run in to a country despite world opinion. What are the growing powers going to think when you ignore the will of the U.N. then defer other countries to them. Why should they respect the U.N.? Why should they trust this country to respect and abide by their judgements.
George Bush has done so much to hurt the credibility of this country that there is no telling anymore what we can do to recover. I don't mean now, I mean in 5, 10, 20 years from now when there are too many countries with Nuclear weapons to control and too many burned bridges to level the political playing field? We have and are currently badly abusing our size and power. Being bigger and stronger does not justify doing whatever we want and not respecting the soverignty of the countries we don't like. Look within the U.S.A., we hate those that burn the flag, we ban groups from the radio who speak out against the war, we punnish people who do exactly what is supposed to make this country great, the ability to speak out and to dissagree and to express our displeasure with choices made. This is a double-standard and one that we cannot continue to impose upon the world.
There may be hideous things going on in other countries, but as much as we hate those things we do NOT have the right to invade because of them. We can join together with the countries of the world to bring about change though and that is the system that we should be putting our very soul into building up. How can this country survive in a new world where world powers are a single bomb or missle away from being able to tell us to go to hell? You can see it starting already...

My two cents.

For the second week in a row I lost an entire day. Last week I spent all day Friday thinking it was Thursday and Today I was just informed that it is Thursday when I thought it was Wednesday... Sure, it's cool, closer to the weekend, like getting a day off sorta, but when you think about it in the larger scope of things, I really need to reassure myself I am not losing it. I mean who knows what other things have been blowing right by me. I have to be more careful now that my wife is pregnant. Oh wait...DAMN! :-)

Just shut up and watch this!

Thursday, January 16, 2003

Hmmm.. I can't help but wonder if Boogie has been unknowingly SIM'ing around with my wife, who also has developed quite an attraction to the SIMS Online....

What you wanted creativity and humor?

Some people will never understand the rush of adrenaline and the heart pounding anticipation that accompanies the moments just before I hit the "Post and Publish" button. Sure they know to read my blog, but most of them just don't "Get it"

:-)

Monday, January 13, 2003

Okay Tempest, I'll keep them crossed, but only for you. Hurry up and get that job though, they're beginning to cramp and I am very nervous about putting Absorbine Jr. on them!!! :-O

Friday, January 10, 2003

Good luck Tempest. My fingers are crossed, my legs, even my ba.. never mind, just good luck!!!

Thanks for all the well wishes!

And now a pointless flashback reference...

ZIM-ZAM!

Thank you and have a nice day.

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday you old fart, Happy Birthday to me...

Thank goodness that whole "Noogies" thing is over or I'd get brain damage (more) by now...

32...My age squared would be 1024. That's just damn old!

To put that in perspective, when I was 16 the square of my age was only 256. Just proof that time does go faster the older you get...

Directed irrelevence off.

Have a great new year!
Joe
