At the rape trial, the lawyers picked a jury, but then decided not to hold the trial until next week. The murder trial didn’t pan out, either. One of the defendants entered a guilty plea and the other one got his case postponed until April. So, I’m free for the rest of the week. I’m[…]

Worn Out

It seems I only have one day off of work this week — today. Tomorrow (Monday) would normally be my second day off, but duty calls. A first-degree rape jury trail begins in our county tomorrow, and I’m the guy that’s set to cover it. The case is from three years ago, so most of[…]

Tired

I’m tired. I feel like I’ve been climbing and climbing, only to discover that the whole mountain is sinking. I need a backrub. My ideal woman (and it changes from day to day): -shorter and heavier than a supermodel, but with more brains. -can play chess -doesn’t watch “Survivor,” etc. -alive.

Sore

I’m still terribly sore from cutting firewood and clearing brush on Monday. I guess being inside most of the winter allowed me to get out of shape. Time to hit the weight bench and the track again. Will I quit smoking? Probably not. No one’s given me a good enough reason yet. Cost? I would[…]

Contest Results

We got our contest results back today (for the “2004 Better Newspaper Contest.”) We sucked. Really hard and long, apparently. This a deep-throat kind of sucking, you could say. For a paper that usually wins awards out the ass, it was a slap in the face. We came in dead last in our division, in[…]

Lightning

Watching the lightning tonight was therapeutic. I always feel like a child when I’m watching a thunderstorm — it’s so vast, so powerful, so majestic, that in comparison, I am but a tiny, insignificant speck. It’s a good feeling, sometimes, to have your ego checked by such a grand display. There’s nothing I can do[…]

Good Job

I got a compliment out of my boss today, which doesn’t happen all the time. At first, when I was hired, she was extremely complimentary about my writing, and constantly fed my ego. It was the same when I first started taking pictures. Lately though, after three years of consistent good work, I don’t hear[…]

Praise the Pickle

I started my own religion once, but it sucked. In fact, it sucked worse than most religions already out there. So we quit. What was so sucky about my religion? It didn’t make any money. We (myself and a few converts) were much worse at earning cash than the current religions. The Pickle was our[…]

Lunch Break

Nobody should take me too seriously, when I’m bitching about random subjects in this journal. They’re just little pet peeves, and I have to air them out a little. But I’m not a bitcher or whiner, most of the time. There’s too much to enjoy, too much to see, hear, taste, smell and feel, in[…]

Stupidity

Why do people use idiotic and trite phrases like “Git ‘er done”? I mean, it was only BARELY funny the first few times that redneck comedian said it. After that, even he sounded dumb. But you hear people all over the place saying it, and then they give you that look like you should smile[…]

She writes every day, and I never knew it. Never knew that there were other words besides the ones I see and produce. And there are others, trillions more every day that slip by me. But only a few will turn my heart, wake my poetic consciousness, tickle my brain. Only a few, like her,[…]

Ahead and Behind

Could I be more behind? And I’m not just behind on personal projects, but on everything. My computer is five years old (maybe more; I don’t know how long it sat in the back room at Wal-Mart before I bought it in 2000 A.D.) I don’t use words like “holla” or “chillax” (whatever the hell[…]

Joy and Pain

Oh, the joy and pain of watching high school basketball! It would be different if I didn’t know anyone on the court, and had no personal attachments. Like when I watched Maud and Strother the other night. No offense to those schools, but I don’t know anyone up there. Tonight, I watched New Lima vs.[…]

Dreaming I’m Depp

Did I mention that I had a dream last night? (Well, actually I had several. But here’s one:) I was Johnny Depp. Not completely. But I was becoming him. And the real Mr. Depp was feeling like less and less of himself. Until he faded completely. I probably shouldn’t mention what happened after the full[…]

Good Refs v. Dumb Refs v. Bad Refs

I went to Strother tonight, to see the Maud girls’s game (which was horrible), and the Maud boys play the Strother boys. I don’t have much to say about that game, except a short discourse on referees. Good Refs vs Dumb Refs vs Bad Refs If you really pay attention, you’ll see a lot of[…]

Go Vikings

It was a good deal of fun to watch the district basketball games at New Lima High School tonight. The New Lima girls didn’t try very hard and still whipped butt against Asher. That wasn’t terribly exciting. What blew my mind was the unbelievable comeback that the Sasakwa Lady Vikings managed against Wanette! Those girls[…]

Too Dark

After all the pictures I had in the paper of Casey Pipestem’s memorial (which I took for free, on my time off), I didn’t get a single “great picture” compliment from anyone. Not even my boss, who is usually complimentary. All I got was “These pictures are too dark.” Basically, they’re not good enough. Maybe[…]

Good Times

Good times. I just got back from spending the evening with some of my favorite people, the Sasakwans. (I guess that’s how you say it.) Shay-la, Juanna, Cydney, Meagan, and all the others. Don’t be offended if your name’s not in this list. I’m tired and don’t want to type forever. I saw two great[…]

Sideways and Column Inches

I heard that “Sideways” was one of the best films of the year, and is nominated for that Oscar. So I saw it last night. What a rip! I mean, it’s a good movie, but best film of the year? “The Incredibles” was better than “Sideways.” So were about 20 other movies I saw this[…]
