Journal: Things Overheard At Work

Journal by XO

Emp: This digital recorder will record for up to 490 minutes!
Cust: 490 minutes? That's about an hour isn't it?

Cust: How long will this battery last?
Emp: Typically about a year to a year and a half
Cust: How long is that??

Cust: How long are these batteries good for?
Emp: Sir, those are good in their package until at least 2009!
Cust: *thinks* Why.. that's 997 years ago, sir!
Emp (and other customers): *stare blankly*
*Cust opens checkbook calendar*: Oh.. uh...

Emp: Please make sure you charge this new cordless phone battery at least 12 hours or so before using it, to make sure it gets a good, full charge.
Cust: 12 hours?! That's like 3 days isn't it?!

Well, now, this is all fucked up. I've provided a message board, at my web site. Login there (if you want to post, you'll need to sign in as a New User if you haven't already), and check out the American Issues message board (there are also several other message boards there as well).

  Have fun!

Does no one in the peanut gallery have anything to say? Speechless, or no longer paying attention?

Not too bad a day today.

Hmm. Wings game tonight. w00t!

There are at least three sides to every story that involves two or more people. One party's side, the other party's side, and the whole truth.

Everything everyone will ever tell you is always embellished upon in some way, shape, or form.

You will never be able to discern the exact truth of a situation by hearing both party's sides.

Find the petition online (it's out there, but I can't find it) that is a declaration that "all people are stupid".

It's true.

Those who blindly believe the words of others should be deported.

No mommy don't do it again, don't do it again,
I'll be a good boy
I'll be a good boy, I promise. No mommy don't hit me,
Owe, why did you have to hit me like that mommy?
Don't do it you're hurting me OW!
Why do you have to be such a bitch?!
Why don't you why don't you fuck off and die?!
Why can't you just fuck off and die?!
Why can't you just leave here and die?!
Never stick your hand in my face again, bitch.
You stupid, sadistic, abusive, fucking whore.
Would you like to see how it feels mommy?
Here it comes!

Journal: Keep Away

Journal by XO

I'd enter my own lyrics in here, but I don't have access to my laptop right now.

So, here's more pertinent lyrics:

Sickness spilling through your eyes
Craving everything you thought was alive
Stab me in the heart again
Drag me through your wasted life
Are you forever dead?
Do like I told you STAY AWAY FROM ME
Never misunderstand me, Keep away from me
Twistin' everything around that you say!
Smack me in my mouth 200 times every other day
Rag me - I don't hear you anymore!
Not yet, Find out what it means to me
I don't know who you are!
Draggin' on so lonely, aren't you tired baby?
Breathing life into your lungs

Journal: imagine all the people

Journal by XO

Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one

I wonder how long this journal option has been around, and how many years I've never noticed it. lol
