Have you read this book?

I read a book a long time ago, and I'm looking for it again. I remember it was good, but I can't remember the plot. The book was written through the eyes of an insane person. What I remember most was the crazy guy's logic as to why you should never date women with fancy manicured fingernails. There was page after page of damn good reasons to not date a woman with fancy fingernails. I remember reading this book thinking, "How could anyone write this? This is brilliant!"
Does this ring a bell for anyone? I would like to read this book again.

Sunday Burnout

Image depicting the way I feel right now. It's not bad... but...

Last night I went to bed at about 10:30 PM. This morning, for some reason, the dawgs didn't wake me up, and aside from getting up at 4:30 for a while, I slept till 8:15, which is unprecedented. Now I feel like I need coffee and a shower, except I already had coffee and a shower. Burnout. I think the only cure is a snorkel in the cold cold Caribbean Sea,

Texas beauty queen wins 'fat' case

Normally I don't give a rats ass about this crap. but I read about this when the whole thing started and they took Domoniques crown away, I thought it was wrong then. I am glad the jury decided as it did, but am surprised it took them so long to reach a verdict.
US beauty contest winner Domonique Ramirez, who claimed she was stripped of her crown because she had gained weight has won her courtroom fight to regain the title.

Seventeen-year-old Domonique Ramirez claimed pageant officials in Texas had told her to "get off the tacos".

Organisers of the Miss San Antonio contest said she was dismissed because she had breached her contract.

After nearly 12 hours of deliberation, jurors in Bexar County, Texas, ruled in favour of Ms Ramirez.

Judge Barbara Nellermoe said she didn't "have any choice but to reinstate Domonique Ramirez as Miss San Antonio 2011".

"This is about principle, this is about what's right," the 5ft 8in (173cm), 129lb (58.5kg) Ms Ramirez said after the verdict on Thursday.

Organisers took away the teenager's crown in January, saying she had arrived late to events and failed to conduct herself in a way befitting a beauty queen.

During the week-long trial, pageant director Linda Woods said the teenager had turned up to a bikini shoot overweight, making the pictures "unusable".

Ms Ramirez told the court that pageant bosses had said she "needed to lay off the tacos and the junk food".

Ms Woods described the verdict as an "injustice for the city of San Antonio".

Jury foreman Jesse Sanchez told the local newspaper, the Express-News, that the verdict was a "a hard decision". She declined to divulge what damages and fees were awarded to Ms Ramirez.

Now that she has her title back, Ms Ramirez is eligible to compete for the titles of Miss Texas and Miss America.

But, one complication remains. During her dismissal period, another Miss San Antonio, Ashley Dixon, was crowned.

"I don't plan on taking the crown away from Ashley. I'm hoping that we'll be able to share and she can go to Miss Texas as well as Miss Bexar County, and we can both share the crown," Ms Ramirez said.

From the BBC article, HERE

I think it's very noble of Domonique to offer to share her crown, Ashley Dixon now needs to be compensated for her ordeal, and mean old Linda Woods needs a reprimand. She forgets she is dealing with children, (if only legally and not technically).

Drug use brain damage

I have a terrible time remembering names. I meet someone and get their name, and I instantly forget it. Or, if I try real hard, and pay attention, and think "That's a common name, I can remember that", then a few minutes later, I realize it is gone.

We've been watching the TV show "Bones". I don't know any of the characters names, except Bones, whose real name is Temperance, and Sweets, the Psychologist. When I hear the name on the show, the name instantly transfers to the picture of their face, and the name is rejected.

Back when I was a kid, I did a lot of drugs, I mean a lot. I wonder if this is related to those days.

Books are different, I read a name of a character, and automatically form a picture in my mind. Then I read the name again, and refer to the picture. Sometimes I get confused if there are too many characters in the book, but friends always say I describe books I read to them like a movie, and they seem impressed and I think it is a good thing.

There are several friends whose names I don't know. I meet them, hear their name, forget it, and never hear it again. The longer I know someone whose name I don't know, the harder it is to ask. Imagine a friend of yours, you've been friends for years, and all of a sudden one day, your friend asks your name, and says he never knew it all these years, wouldn't that be weird?

Capitalism to blame for lack of life on Mars

Chavez says capitalism may have ended life on Mars

(Reuters) - Capitalism may be to blame for the lack of life on the planet Mars, Venezuela's socialist President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday.

"I have always said, heard, that it would not be strange that there had been civilization on Mars, but maybe capitalism arrived there, imperialism arrived and finished off the planet," Chavez said in speech to mark World Water Day.

From HERE

Well, That explains a lot. This is probably what happened on the Moon too. I've been wondering what happened to all the Martians and those little green Moon Men. When were our scientists were going to tell us this? Driven to extinction for the dollar! Dangit!

Your Last Point and Shoot Camera

I read an article a month or so ago almost titled "The point and shoot camera you own right now is the last point and shoot camera you'll ever buy". Of course, I can't find the article now, but the gist was that cell phone cameras are getting so good that you won't need to carry a camera and your phone. My cell phone has a 5 Megapixel camera, which isn't bad, and since I read that article I've been trying to take more photos with my phone.
Now here's something for you to check out: The Lomography website. Lomography is a group that is dedicated to analogue (film) photography. But I like their 10 Golden Rules and think it would be a good idea to apply these rules, even though I (we) use a digital camera. Plus, your phone camera is one you probably have with you all the time, which is Rule Numba One.

Thick Thursday

I am not awake yet. I've been up, walked the dawgs, but not had my first sippa coffee yet.
I've been running some newspaper ads for the company. So far I got two calls.
I don't have a topic today, I'm just rambling. I am pretty stunned by Japan. Now the reactors are melting. Imagine your house is wrecked, your family is distraught, and you have to go to work every day to try to keep the reactors from melting. Probably there is a lot of heroes being made in Japan these days.
Also I was thinking this blog is kind of psychotic. I think that's the word. One day the post is a joke, a funny picture or something. The next is disaster video. Then another joke. It's all over the place.
Today I am picking up a laptop to fix, and I have to make some calls. I want to start swimming again. I dug my goggles out yesterday. Remember when I used to swim a half mile a day?
Look at the text on this post, to me it looks like the red is projecting out of the screen about an inch, while the blue looks further away. Do you see it? or is it just my damaged brain hallucinating?

Killer Biscuits

On this day in ancient history

I entered the US Navy March 15, 1979. I got out March 14, 1985. Joining the Navy, I thought my life was ending, I thought it was like voluntary prison or something. It was much better than I expected, and something that defined who I am almost more than the entirety of my childhood.

The Zone

Sometimes when I'm sleeping, I'm in 'The Zone'. Where it's comfortable, my thoughts are pleasant, the temperature is perfect and I just want to stay there. Usually I'm not aware I was there till I'm not there anymore. I can feel myself trying to stay as I begin floating away, as the dogs desperate "Time For A Walk!!" grunts slowly wake me up.

Then there is the opposite end of the spectrum. I am laying in four inches of dried concrete. My dreams are annoying. (This morning I dreamed someone broke my door, stole my car, and I was so angry and frustrated I was unsuccessfully trying to stab him with my car keys after he brought it back. And a whole bunch of people parked cars all over our yard, including a hearse). I want to wake up but I can't. When I finally do wake up, I can barely get out of bed. My head hurts, my jaw and teeth ache. I feel like I am covered in grease. My neck is sore, my back hurts and I feel so messed-up in my head I call it brain damage. I can't seem to think. I feel tireder than I did when I went to bed. That's where I am right now.

Coffee Helps. Lots of coffee.

Must Read: THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS

I read this book in its entirety yesterday. It is a book I couldn't put down. It is written through the eyes of Bruno, a 9 year old boy who is the son of a high ranking Nazi in WW2. His father moves his family from Berlin to "Out-With" after getting promoted by the "Fury". Bruno doesn't like it because it's not as nice as Berlin and there is no one to play with. Then he meets a boy exactly his age from the other side of the fence. They develop a very strong friendship, which Bruno keeps secret from his family.
There's no blood and guts in the book, but the overall picture is pretty shocking. It's an easy read, you will finish in a couple hours. Absolute must-read.

Nice Dreams

Last night I slept good, and had good dreams. I dreamed I got to go back out to sea on my first ship, the USS Somers. My dream was being on the ship, out at sea, at night. I was me now, not me back then and the crew was all young, not old like me, and I didn't know anybody. But I was walking around remembering stuff and it was really nice. It was night and there was 'darken ship' set and I remember the breeze and the red lights and it was really great.
I had other good dreams too but can't remember them.
USS Somers DDG 34~1981-82


Last night we watched the movie 127 Hours
Intense movie, based on a true story. On YouTube you can find a lot of video of the real Aron Ralston including a six part series I started watching.

fone fotos

Yesterday I transferred all the photos from my phone to my computer. Here's some of them.
Notice how I spelled "fone" and "fotos" in the title? Crazy, isn't it? I'm probably the first one to come up with this original, hilarious idea! It's Phunny!
