Wounded Warrior Project fundraiser...

One of my blog buddies, Art, is running a fundraiser
for the Wounded Warrior Project through his blog at
Carteach0. He explains it all here.

Basically, you make a donation to the Project and your
name gets entered in a drawing at Art's place so you
have a chance to win the prizes on his blog.

Wounded Warrior Project is a worthwhile program that
deserves support.

Have you seen Harvey?...

"I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor,
and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it."
Elwood P. Dowd (Jimmy Stewart) in Harvey, 1950.

To see some trailers, go here.

"Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say,
'In this world, Elwood, you must be'--she always called
me Elwood-- 'In this world, Elwood, you must be
oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart.
I recommend pleasant. You may quote me."
Elwood P. Dowd (Jimmy Stewart) in Harvey, 1950.

bubble-wrap farts...

After McD's and too much Co'cola while
sitting on a hard chair.


Damn things sting a bit while exploding, too.

If there's a video for this, I dun wanna know.

Meetings. Counselors. Seminars.
Document. Document. Document.
Set up profile. Upload resume.
Job search. Job search. Job search.
Validate existence. Justify subsistence.

Looking for a job is a full-time job.

Last employer had another lay-off.
Remaining crew worries.

People who claim to be experts (in what, I'm not sure)
are saying the country is heading for another recession.

When did the first one end?

haiku blues...

letting go of it
is hardest when it has been
nearly all there was.
