Rebutal..yeah, I have a rebutal, hmmm, what?

At my current project as I like to call it I'm reminded how fun it is sometimes to just sit back and listen to people. Its amazing how many people resemble other people from TV. Like there's this guy that looks like an older Alton from the real world, he talks just like him and is cut just like him. then there's this scary old guy that looks like he just killed someone with a rusty butter knife across the room who intent in where a tie to this place. My favorite character is the skinny gay guy who has a mushroom cut and a little ear ring, it straight of the early nineties! Which brings me to my real point, do you ever notice when people are by themselves among large pockets of people they need to be doing something, either pretending to be on their cell phones, or drinking water even if its warm just to seem like you have nothing to and you don't really need to talk to anyone? My favorite is having your hand in your pockets because thats how normal people walk, like penguins? Its such a hard habit to break!

You know what else I noticed? That i don't like dolls that have those little eyes that open when you pick them, I always feel like they'll start talking to me and I won't know what to do.

Also why is it that everyone has an opinion on how you should live your life but they don't head their own advice, have we turned into our parents or does that only eventually happen when you have kids. LIke i keep on hearing, "oh you'll understand when you have your own kids!"

I hope it doesn't take that long. I mean ,I get it, you never stop being a parent and just a friend.

all i can say that is that is has to be the coolest magic trick that we call all do, make love and 9 months later you have little piece of you and your wife right in front of you!

I'm rambling so I'm going to get ready for church.

Is it safe to go to school?

I'm sitting on my red target chair with the blind drawn wide open listening to Josh Groban, yes Josh Groban. The thought that has been passing through my head these past couple days have been that there is a growing problem with violence. We, me, you, your and neighbors are at war at two fronts. While causalities are to be expected on the streets of some city in Iraq what the hell is going on here? Virgina Tech, even at my Alma mater there was a deranged seminar student strangling a professor. As i write this there is a report of a gunman at NASA! I might sounds harsh in saying this but if you feel the need to kill yourself take yourself and spare everyone else around you. There is never a reason to kill a room full of students, seriously! I try to not watch the news for this same reason, I don't need to watch it on to know that we're all messed up. I know that there is some real shit going on out there but really when isn't there. So I would like to say thank you to all you bloggers that continue to write about how your boobs are small, or how you cleaned up large amounts of poop and throw up. I appreciate reading about how you still can't pay your taxes on time..anything to keep my mind off the fact that the ride to school might be the last ride you might take. It would seem that our generation has taken the motto of the pen is mightier than the sword and shattered it. Stay safe...

The only time holly has liked my facial hair. I shaved it to a mustache the very next day but she yelled at me and threaten to not leave the house with me if I didn't shave. I wish I had evidence of that bodacious stache!

So I've been sleeping on the couch while I've been here and needless to say that I've missed my bed but not because its big and comfortable but because I don't have to be covered in a sleeping bag and a down comforter! Its all good, you do what you have to do to be with the people that make you go! I have found a new love, reading! Well at least books that deal with sports or big personalities so lets not go giving each other a pat on the back and please hold back on the book club invitations. Its amazing that if i close my eyes and just listen all I can hear is the rain dropping the rooftop and the occasional car whiz past King st ave. This is truly a nice place to live, its something that I can only remember. The itch to be close to the city is too big for me especially with a metro as interesting as the GTA!!! Anyways I was listening to J.Mayer and I couldn't get this lyrics out of my mind..

.......No I'm not colorblind

I know the world is black and white

Try to keep an open mind

But I just can't sleep on this tonight

Stop this train

I wanna get off

And go home again

I can't take the speed it's moving in

I know I can't

But honestly, won't someone stop this train?

Don't know how else to say it......

OH yeah, pictures.. I can't find holly's camera to upload any up yet. So I'll leave with this one of HAT.

What do you mean its delayed?

So on my recent trip to Toronto was plagued with delays. I left my house around 1230 ish and didn't leave Orlando till 4:30. I was scheduled to leave at 2:55. I got to Chicago to meet yet another delay. I was there for over 5 hours....Needless to say that i arrived 5 1/2 hours later than I was suppose to...but then my girl picked me up and I forgot how long I had sat on an airplane.
Though I did have a good experience with my single serving friend from Chicago to Toronto. A delightful women with years of experience in life. She reminded me of my mother with her positive energy and warm eyes. We talked about her life and her love interests, well her two previous marriages that ended with divorce due to involvement of alcohol in the marriage, even with such devastating life crutches she still had the optimism of a women with hope. She talked to me in detail about her daughters and cousins. She was a proud lady, I appreciated her encouragement as I talked to her about my future plans. Eleanor, thanks for the talk.

Oh, one more thing, apparently in Canada there are flying squirrells that attack bird feeders. I'll try to get some video of this before I leave.
Well bye for now..
