Yikes is been a while since I last posted, I promise to get back on this , with at least weekly musings, hopefully more, so check back often!

Yesterday I got my wisdom teeth out, i was on tylenol 3 all day yesterday and today... nothing, not even regular tylenol! I'm a healing machine!

Hold on... I feel a rant coming on...

Anti-Smoking laws

I hate this new TO bylaws that bans smoking in restaurants, bars, bingo halls, strip clubs etc. Not because I love smokers, obviously if they can smoke next to me with impunity, thats wrong, because it does me harm, and no-one has the right to do me harm without my consent. However, if i choose to operate a business, it is, in my opinion, my right to allow smoking in my establishment. You, as someone who does not want to be exposed toi second hame smoke, have the choice of whether or not to frequent my establishment, should you choose to enter my private property, you are giving consent to have your lungs filled with second hand smoke. If this causes my business to potnetially go under from lack of patronage, I can either change to a smoke free environment or persih. I will not, however, have the government perscribe to me under what circumstances i may operate my business. If you want a beer, but dont want to see naked women, dont go to a strip club for a beer. If you want a beer and you dont want to breath smoke, don't come to my smoker's lounge!

So there you have it.

Found this little tidbit @ Language Hat

Take the nearest six to ten books from your shelf.
Open them to page 23, and find the fifth sentence.
Write down those sentences and arrange them to form a short story.
Post the text in your journal along with these instructions.

Here's my effort, entitled

"David and Victoria". By Michael Duffy

In short, the law is the principal means whereby human activity is prohibited,
permitted or required, and the state and the law are intimately enmeshed in the
creation of the modern social order.

I have returned to the marital bed and David and I have had sex, just
because we're lying there and next to each other. Devious, hardboiled,
fast on his feet, he's a tough man to beat. Exceptional virility often
reflects in the subject's displayable features a sullen and congested
something that pertains to what he has to conceal.

She looked up at me from her desk, her eyes authoritatively searching mine,
which were hidden behind the thick lenses like tiny crabs in a rock pool.
Really beautiful woman hardly ever use this trick, preferring to stick to
their own kind. My petty antics are legendary in the circle of Victoria's
friends.


Fin.

If you're interested the books used were:

Sentence 1: Criminology, A Canadian Perspective. Rick Linden (text for criminology)
Sentence 2: How to be Good. Nick Hornby (bought for fun)
Sentence 3: The Public Burning. Robert Coover (English 348- Postmodernism)
Sentence 4: Lolita. Vladmir Nabokov (same)
Sentence 5. Birds of Passage. Brian Castro (novel study- Criticism 2)
Sentence 6: Dirty Jokes and Beer. Drew Carey (Fun)
Sentence 7. My Present Age. Guy Vanderhaeghe (Bought this after reading another of his, haven't actually read the whole book)

Alright, I've got comments now! Feel free to ruminate on the following: "Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski did it before they got married". Agree? Disagree? Please provide evidence.

Saw "The Ladykillers" last night. I give it a 3.5/5 Hanks was brilliant, and i'd definately reccommend it as a rental. What I didn't like however, was the preachy anti-piracy sopt they put before the film. I just paid $13 to see your movie! Talk about preaching to the choir.

Also, i have a hot girlfriend. Those of you who have met her are fully aware of this. Those of you who haven't...suckers!
Something I realized a while ago really got confirmed tonight:

One's life is too short and too important to waste on the comapny of people who one isn't getting anything positive out of. I've stopped wasting my time. Consider those who you give your precious time to... are they worth it?

Its 240 am, I'm tipsy. Class at 10 am, place your bets.
