I got a special treat when I noticed on the back, there is an imprint of one of my tattoos (the Eye of Horus) too cool!! Let me know if you decide to pick one up and we can compare notes. I'm off to finish making dinner!

When you occasionally have a really bad day, and you just need to take it out on someone, don't take it out on someone you know, take it out on someone you don't knowI was sitting at my desk when I remembered a phone call I'd forgotten to make. I found the number and dialed it. A man answered, saying ''Hello"I politely said, ''This is Chris, May I please speak with Robyn Carter?'' Suddenly a manic voice yelled out in my ear ''Get the right f*** ing number!'' and the phone was slammed down on me. I couldn't believe that anyone could be so rude. When I tracked down Robyn's correct number to call her, I found that I had accidentally transposed two digitsAfter hanging up with her, I decided to call the 'wrong' number again. When the same guy answered the phone, I yelled 'You're an asshole!' and hung up. I wrote the number down with the word 'asshole' next to it, and put it in my desk drawer.Every couple of weeks, when I was paying bills or had a really bad day, I'd call him and yell, 'You're an asshole!' It always cheered meWhen caller ID was introduced, I thought my therapeutic asshole calling would have to stop. So I called hi humber and said, 'Hi, this in John Smith from the telephone company.I'm calling to see if you're familiar with our Caller ID Program?' He yelled 'NO!' and slammed down the phone.I quickly called him back and said, 'That's because you're an asshole!' and hung up. One day I was at the store, getting ready to pull into a parking spot. Some guy in a black BMW cut me off and pulled into the spot I had patiently waited for. I hit the horn and yelled that I'd been waiting for that spot, but The idiot ignored me. I noticed a 'For Sale ' sign in his back window, so I wrote down his number.A couple of days later, right after calling the first asshole (I had his number on speed dial), I thought that I'd better, call the BMW asshole, too.
I said, ''Is this the man with the black BMW for sale?'' He said, ''Yes, it is...''I asked, ''Can you tell me where I can see it?'' He said, ''Yes, I live at 34 Oaktree Blvd, in Fairfax. It's a yellow house, and the car's parked right out in front.' I asked, 'What's your name?''
He said, ''My name is Don Hansen."
I asked, ''When's a good time to catch you Don?'' He said, ''I'm home every evening after five."I said, ''Listen, Don, can I tell you something?''
''Don, you're an asshole!'' I hung up, and added his number to my speed dial, too. Now, when I had a problem, I had two assholes to call. Then I came up with an idea... I called Asshole 1. When he answered I said, ''You're an asshole!'' (But, I didn't hand up)
He asked, ''Are you still there?'' I said , "Yeah"He screamed, ''STOP CALLING ME!'' I said, ''Make me"He asked, ''Who are you?''"I said, 'My name is Don Hansen"''Yeah, where do you live?'' I said, ''Asshole, I live at 34 Oaktree Blvd, in Fairfax, a yellow rambler, I have a black Beamer parked in front."He said, ''I'm coming over right now, Don. And you had better start saying your prayers." I said, ''Yeah, like I'm really scared, asshole,'' and hung up.Then I called Asshole No. 2.He said, ''Hello?'' I said, ''Hello, asshole'' He yelled, ''If I ever find out who you are...''I said, ''You'll what?'' He exclaimed, ''I'll kick your ass,'' I answered, 'Well, asshole, here's your chance. I'm coming over right now."Then I hung up and immediately called the police, saying that I lived at 34 Oaktree Blvd, in Fairfax, and that my gay lover was on his way over to kill me.Then I called Channel 9 News about the gang war going down in Oaktree Blvd. In Fairfax.I quickly got into my car and headed over to Fairfax. I got there just in time to watch two assholes beating the crap out of each other in front of six cop cars, an overhead news helicopter and surrounded by a news crew. NOW I feel much better.

I AM ....overwhelmed
I WANT....to get motivated to do the things on my to do list.
I HAVE ...too much to do.
I WISH I COULD ... take a week to go somewhere far away.
I HATE ... people who think they know how it is for me...
I FEAR ...a never ending occupation of Iraq.
I HEAR ... Danny's song playing on my Pandora Radio station/
I SEARCH ... the internet for things to keep my mind off of the last month of this deployment.
I DON'T THINK ...I can ever do this again!
I REGRET ... nothing. I am what I am.
I LOVE ...a lot of things, but first and formost my Jeremiah.
I ACHE FOR ...the feeling of being in his arms.
I ALWAYS CRY ... at something other than what I am upset about.
I AM NOT ...a patient person.
I DANCE ... when no one is looking.
I SING ... at the top of my lungs until I fall over in fits of laughter.
I NEVER ... care about the idiots opinions.
I RARELY ... feel relaxed.
I CRY WHEN I WATCH ... men cry. It kills me.
I AM NOT ALWAYS ....myself. Sometimes I freeze up, and act like a dork. There is a huge group of people I work with all the time who have no clue who I am.
I HATE THAT ...sometimes I have to hold myself back.
I'M CONFUSED ABOUT ... who voted for bush the SECOND time!
I NEED ... for this Fort Campbell experiment to be over.
I SHOULD ... really be cleaning my house instead of posting on my blog every five minutes.
Miah, do you remember what to do?
Go, Miah, Go!
Now what Laurel?
Holding on for dear life!

This is from the blue period. I call it "Sad Guitarist."
This is weirdly cool. It looks like a 5 year old painting, and yet, it is beautiful art. I just simply call this one "Colorful One"
That is it for now, I hope this insipires you to look up Pablo Pacasso, and look at his paintings.
