When you were here before,
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel,
Your skin makes me cry

You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so fuckin' special

But I'm a creep,
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts,
I wanna have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul

I want you to notice
when I'm not around
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here, ohhhh, ohhhh

She's running out again
She's running out
She run run run run...
run... run...

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep,
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't belong here...

I tried to put these behind an LJ-cut, but kept getting "irreparable markup" errors. Grr!

So, that's what it looked like within two hours of getting needled. Should heal pretty.

Well, I got a tattoo. It hurts now. It looked good when I saw it at the tattoo parlor, and it's going to be with me forever. Hopefully this perma-stinging will fade a bit sooner =)

Also, if anyone tells you it doesn't hurt? They're lying. They're not just lying, they're lying through their lying teeth. It didn't hurt as bad as I thought continuously, and my artist liked short lines, but it still hurt. At times, it hurt like a sumbish. Other times, it HURT LIKE A MOFO. And then other times, it hurt, but then tapered to a vibration, like when they're drilling my teeth.

Of course, I also wondered if he was smoking and had leaned in a little to close with the cigarette once or twice, mostly on my bone-laden areas.

Also, I had more pain on the left side of my back than on the right side... that's a little weird. makes me wonder.

So I got this in the mail today... I've omitted the link, because they don't deserve to live.


Did you know that you could completely
eliminate your power bill by constructing a zero point magnetic power generator?

A Zero point magnetic power generator is basically a Free Energy Generator. It uses magnets, and magnetic force to induce perpetual motion. It runs by itself indefinitely without stopping, thus creating completely free electrical energy, which can fully power your home for free.

To learn more about this new invention
that can help many people eliminate their power bill just click or copy and paste the link below:

Okay, I don't know WHERE to start on this...

1) Laws of Thermodynamics. Learn it, live it, love it.
2) Magnetic power does what now? Are you aware of the EM field around the earth? It's not that powerful.
3) TANSTAAFL. See #1

"I stole this one from a Facebook meme going around: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you’ve read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes."

Hmmmm.... a challenge!
1 Stranger in a Strange Land by RAH
2 Starship Troopers by RAH
3 Interview with a Vampire by Ann Rice
4 Azure Bonds by Novak and Grubb
5 Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
6 A Fistful of Charms by Kim Harrison
7 Kitty and the Midnight Hour by... YOU
8 The Cat Who Walks Through Walls by RAH
9 Shadows of the Flame by Lydia C. Golden
10 The Art of War by Sun Tzu
11 The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli
12 In Death Ground by David Weber
13 Spellsinger's Scherzo by Alan Dean Foster
14 Nightfall by Asimov and Silverburg
15 The Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zahn

Commentary - Of these books, Shadows of the Flame is listed not for being a great read, but because it is self-published and will haunt my mind as an example of what not to do in a book. Why I managed to tough through it is more a testament to masochistic tendencies. All of the rest of these books I've read more than once; in the case of Stranger, over 20 times now.

in aching stillness I sit
your words silent yet echoing
my ears hear nothing
a cacophony of emptiness
centered around the echoes
shaking my soul

my lips move making no sound
my thoughts race frozen in nothing
resonating to the hollowness
inside this symphony of the soundless

Randomness given form, and this is the v1 ingredient list.

Parsley Leaf (cut) 2oz
Catnip Herb (cut) 2oz
Kava Kava (cut) 2oz
Black Tea, Oolong (cut) 2oz
Ginkgo leave (cut) 1oz

Garlic Powder - 1oz
Cayenne, 160,000 HU Powder - 1oz
Olive Leaf Powder - 1oz
Sage Powder - 1oz
Clove Powder - 1oz
Black Pepper - 2 shakes
Curry Powder - A shot

Note: Both take up a fair amount of space... as made, the tea takes a gallon ziploc bag and the spice is split between a spice shaker and a quart bag. All ingredients came from Leaves and Roots, an Orlando shop with good stuff. (It's on East Colonial, about 2 or 3 miles west of the Alafaya Trail intersection. Currently in a smaller storefront due to fire.)

Feel free to try these but I recommend scaling back the quantity of ingredients in proportion. CatSpice is hot.


Update on Range

Range has come... ranging to time to turn on...

Hurdle #2: Range has a 6-3 plug on it. Old range was direct wired to the circuit breaker... Lowes installation DOES NOT mess with direct wired to the house installs. Hehehehe...
Time to go to lowes to pick up a 6-3 range receptacle, and ask some pro-tips on how to install it!

This is a hoot... I may also pick up a dremmel for "trimming" purposes.

I KNEW I was gettin' me a damn tool this weekend...

(Dear lord, I don't even sound much like a computer geek today...

So, yesterday ivyriver and I went to Lowes... I originally intended to buy a new dishwasher. However, the preferred replacement appliance for the day in total was a range. So, after a little looking and some discussions, we came to settle upon this Whirlpool 30 inch Freestanding Range (I find it hilarious that the Lowes.com page says they don't sell it where we bought it.)

No problem, right? You'd think that... until as I was driving home I pondered our current stove. A Kenmore 30 inch drop in range. What's the big deal you may ask? Well... let me explain the difference. A drop in range, as the name implies, "drops in" to the cabinets in the kitchen. In our exact case, two cabinets on either side, with the center area being the drop in range. A freestanding range, on the other hand, merely stands apart from or in between cabinets. The real rub is that the counter top for a drop in is not fully cut out; the footprint for the top of the drop in stove is cut slightly smaller (around 29") than the opening you would need for a freestanding or slide in range. So while measuring the opening between the cabinets gives me the required 30" width, the counter top opening is 29" wide!!!! Tab does not fit into slot b, as they say. For the moment, I'll also ignore the extra inch and or two between the wall and the opening for the range (the counter top opening goes behind the drop in range, looking pretty with a back splash and everything. (I have pictures, maybe I'll upload them.) The free standing variety of range has to slide into this opening, and back (in theory, to the wall) to fit all pretty with the cabinets.

So, using a jigsaw, having to shave open the sides of the opening to approximate the 30" requirement is possibly the easiest solution, after also knocking out the bottom support for the drop in stove. Removing the back splash and remaining 1.5" of depth of the counter top still is a question mark for me... a dremmel maybe, or other rotary cutting tool might work.

Let this be a lesson... always look into what kind of modifications may be necessary BEFORE you willy-nilly buy an appliance. (I don't think this will be that difficult... but it may be funky for a day or two.
