Some really cool swag!

Waiting to hear back on 2 mp3 players being given away on freecycle. They’re only 250 MB but they are Sony and I am going to get them. The Easy Share D-cam was given to someone else (DAMN IT). Yesterday’s score on the computer UPS ES battery power backups was a major score I got for myself and the two PCs at home the very tre chic APC Back-UPS E S 350.

Also got another one for my friend and part time walking wiki when I need it. There was also some others I got 3 of a different brand for 3 co workers I know could use them. SO all in all last week wasn’t so bad. SO when I do get the Sony mp3 players that will round off my week nicely.

a PCP?

I was thinking about AMVs and this clip really gave me the cool thought about a Saki and Madarame type video… from those who know who they are need only apply. Don’t need any nonce from the peanute gallery out there.

I think this was a cool vid.

Spare the Tazer and Punish the Child? I think not…….

Ok, I have to say there are quite a number of takes and opinions involved in this. Now I don’t condone physical harm to a child at any age under 18. But discipline and overuse of force are in fact two different things. Whether autistic ADD ADHD Bi-polar or related behavioral dysfunctions are involved or they’re just an average child upbringing is a definite key factor involved in this. A Parent who does not apply a firm hand rather than fist will get a more positive reaction and return rather than throwing them through say a closet door. Thus guiding them to possibly become better people rather than become a burden to the community and themselves.

Proper behavioral modification and adjusting always and should always start at the home. But at the same time it is also the parent’s responsibility to learn how to be the positive role model for the child/children to become/emulate. Medication and treatments and such can in some cases be a negative and not showing the compassion and love and care the parent has for their offspring, rather in turn gives the child an idea that the parent does not care for the child as much and would rather seem them sedated and pacified them so they are out of the way and can go about what hey want to do during the day.

This really isn’t the case as well. There are a variety of different stages, which special children with special needs do in fact need certain medical prescriptions to help assist and balance out the chemical imbalance they are afflicted with. Overall, it’s matter of how people handle their offspring and how they teach them to behave in the public and at home. Life skills themselves simply put begin in the home. If the home is damaged to begin with what the heck are you doing trying to bring a child into it? Comments. replies. anything?


Ok ok ok….calm down deep breath! I got an email last night from my facebook account. Was from a friend of mine I keep in contact with from HS. Email stated a phone # and to call after 7 pm. So I call and the voice on the other end answered and I swear it was like traveling backwards in time, because I realized that sean had accidently found my best friend from high school in the bank he was at. It had been 25 yrs since I had talked with him last.

We talked for like 40 mins on the the cel till it went dead then asked sean (while still connected on facebook) to have gary call me on the house phone where 5 mins later we were back talking and we talked for over and hour and a half catching up. I’m still giddy about it. 25 yrs, wow….. I can hardly believe it. Now my duty as his friend? After hearing some of what has been happening in his life? I need to find some way to get him out of what he’s dug himself into and out.

I’m waiting on an email now while at work. meanwhile more calls to take more people to help. Also I don’t about some of you out there and today being valentines day, but I got my wife one of the neck and shoulder massagers to use since I’m not at home in the evenings like I’d like to be. That and a rose and a talking Chris Rock Valentines day card. I hope she gets a laugh out of it. Anyways, I have to jet lunch is almost over.

Heh, I love this video.

You have to feel the love and frustration that Madame has and admire the restraint he holds from telling Saki the truth about his feelings for her. That and respecting his friend and fellow club member she is going out with, not wanting to ruin their friendship as well. Here’s to you Madame! A man of convictions and deep loyalty to your friends and fellow members of genshiken.


Mercy bought a box from the library, 5$ in it? Some DVDs w/o the library labels on it and some shadowrun paperbacks I’ve been missing and wanting to add to my collection. SO a win/win! Took the DVD down to graywhale and traded them off for the Stargate Collector’s Ultra Edition, The limited Edition of The Chronicles of Riddick, and The Returner. Also got myself some CD/DVD holders for the loose CD cases and stuff upstairs in the office.

Overall, not such a bad weekend. Things seem to look good. Plus work tomorrow get Tuesday off, SLEEP IN TIME after sending the kids off to school ! Boo ya !

The Weekend, and friendships…..

Great week overall, helped a friend out I hadn’t heard from in over a year, did some major catch up and seems he had some bad spots in his life as I told him about mine.
Told how I had to remove a few people from our forum and the reasoning behind it. Which he was a little apprehensive to it as thinking it was a bit extreme to go to that length. But after showing him the events over the past year and some of the things said about me, he understood, sad it is but still it had to be done.

I’m trying to get certain events and places behind me. Not a clean slate mind you, but trimming away the tumor type headaches in my life and keeping with the positive places and communities I am still involved with. If some of you are not on here or received an invite? its not because I don’t like you nor want to be friends still? But rather keep it off LJ to refrain from having any real drama flooding over and ruining yet another incarnation, of my LJ again. Some of you know what I mean and what I talk of and the reasoning behind why I did what I did.

The bad part of it is? The one person I tried to keep out of my life involved himself in the Genshiken community here on LJ to keep tabs on me still is my assumption. I try to to presume nor ass-u-me his intentions but I do not like being followed. He doesn’t like genshiken, he’s never talked about it or mentioned it at any length. So why would he involve himself in a community that he doesn’t post to nor get really involved with? Why, because he would like to keep tabs on what is being said, especially if it was about him. He and his friends alike do nothing more when discussing me its nothing more than smack usually. He will of course deny it and show nothing but supposed kindness and also assuming a civil toned tongue, yet his friends share his real feelings and attitude toward me and are quite blatant about it.

Friends of mine have attempted to talk to them and ask to just leave me alone and to go on with their lives. I appreciate it more than I can express, but at the same time? If I am to assume a normal drama free net-social-circle, people will just need to leave him and them alone and just go about your regular forums and communities. Everyone that posts up there just gives them more troll ammo to play with. Lets not give any more troll ammo out OK? Let’s just leave it as a DMZ and stay clear of it. Cool? Cool!

Super-bowl Sunday ! …..yuck

Super-bowl Sunday, the day I dread yet, my youngest daughter expressed her joy at it being SBS and wished to watch it. So, I’ve bought enough *snacks* and 3d glasses for the whole family and will watch this scene of chaos as grown men chase a ball around a field in attempts to foil the other from scoring a TD. This is why I didn’t didn’t get much into sports and rather just go off and draw somewhere.

More brain activity and less machismo. OFFICE is done….well 98% done. Just need to vacuum and dust and place some boxes away and lug the downstairs PC upstairs, hook it to the new broadband modem and *Ding* Fries are done!

I’ll leave with some of you with an Old School Video from the past.
