year of the cock

February 10, 2005 — Leave a comment

in the intricacies of my mind the fact that Year of the Cock and Lent began on the same day is mildly amusing. my mind works in strange ways.

while i was showering this morning i had a draft for this brilliant treatise that was going to tie the penis and lent together and as i sit here, my mind is a complete and utter blank. inspiration is fickle at best.

i`m going to take this opportunity to express my shock and my continued presence in JS top ten especially as i`m not as high i`m going to get. being #3 today is an anomaly cause by the googlebots. i`m grateful for the new readers, especially those that have taken the time to back track through the almost two years of my ramblings. and thank you to the regular readers who continue to put up with me even when i don`t have a point, like today.


for trini`s jonesing for that taste of carnival, BBC Radio 1 xtra, has The Alternative Concept available to listen to as a real audio stream in the carnival section.

the radio stations here in Nashvegas that advertise the night`s upcoming sitcoms with these little sound bites. based on the little snippets and the canned laughter, it`s a wonder anyone watches television at all. but then my sense of humour is considered dark and obscure in some circles and downright evil in others.

today is the beginning of the lenten season and even though i don`t make new year`s resolutions, the lapsed Catholic in me seems determined to continue the tradition of giving something up for lent. i can`t remember what i gave up for lent last year, or if it was one of those good intentions that got lost in the midst of the migration.

it`s hard to believe that it`s been almost a year since i got here, time flies when you`re having fun. i`ve been going over the paperwork for our next pitched battle with the USCIS; the status change; and i realised that once we submit this application i can leave the country and return with problems. which lifts a heavy burden from my mind. with that in mind i`ve been trying to price fares for a jaunt home; so i can see my girls, the boy chick can meet and charm his extended family; but the fares are ridiculous. the cheapest fare i found for Christmas has us changing planes three times and cost $635 each. you could buy a car for that. i can always magic cheap fares for everyone but somehow it never works for me, but we`ll see how things develop for the rest of this year.
