eternal footman

I’ve heard the eternal footman hold my coat and laugh hysterically, and I laughed with him!  You have no choice but to play the game hard and fast because he’s always riding your ass and one day the bell will toll for you.

like marvin gaye said, what’s going on?

i don’t know what to make of the credit crunch, the recession, the collapse of the banks and our monetary system. the system that was never real in the first place appears to be on the verge of collapse if it hasn’t already collapsed and we are just waiting for the aftershock.  at what point did the ordinary roman citizen …

to be civilized or to be savage

Civilization is only good for the very weak and the very clever; the strong lose their natural Darwinistic advantage.  The weak can get a way with shit they would never pull if they didn’t have the law to protect them, like the counter clerk who gives you attitude because they are having a bad day.  Perhaps they would think twice …

I try to convince myself that sitting close to the door might help …

the ugly one

She was the ugly one.  The guys never wanted the ugly one. She sat and watched her beautiful blond-haired blue-eyed bombshell of a friend garner all the boys’ attention.  They had no idea what they were missing, leaving her to sit and stir her vodka lime and soda on her own.  Books aren’t the only things that shouldn’t be judged …

where can i be now

views from my hotel: I some times I get disoriented from all the traveling up and down the country I do.  Especially when I work with multiple clients on projects that require different skill sets.  Because I submerge myself into my work roles completely, when I have a quiet moment and nobody is around that I can orient myself on, …

i guess i chose wisely
