jesus fucking christ

i drive in bad weather all the time, but this was really terrifying. there was 8 inches of snow on the highway. That was bad but managable. When i turned off the highway things really got ugly. For a while the only way i could tell i was still on the road was by noting how wide the gap between the trees was. then the road ahead was blocked off because the wind had created 10 foot tall drifts on the road. When i turned back i got stuck. by sheer luck i was nevt to an exit that had a steep off ramp. by turning of the traction control and pumping the accelerator i was able to slowly drift sidways down the ramp. again luckily there was a freshly plowed road at the bottom of the ramp. from there things were still dicey but a bit better. all in all it took me two hours to travel the twenty miles home. Why was i out in such weather? to go to a dnd game naturally.

Oops forgot to say...

I went to see Shakespeare in the park on Saturday. It was amazing. The stage had been shaped into hills, and real grass was planted on top, with trees and lamp posts and everything.  Even with the rain the actors were outstanding. Anne Hathaway really outdid herself. I was quite surprised. Most film actors don't have the dedication to do live performances. She didn't even flinch when a wild raccoon ran acrossthe stage.  The twelfth night has always been one of my favorites, but the public theater company really out did themselves this year.

Ahh sweet release.

At last i have found the cure for the oppressive boredom. A hobby!  I have taken up amateur astronomy, with an intent to branch out into astrophotography.  Once i can figure out how to make this infernal sky tracker work i will be able to take some amazing pictures. Tonight i saw Saturn's rings and the satallites of Jupiter.  I don't have an adapter for my camera yet so i took the picture of the moon below below by holding my iphone up to the eyepiece. My hand is not steady enough to capture Jupiter so that will have to wait for the adapter.

I have nothing to say. Absolutely nothing.  That's the problem i live in a little bubble of nothing. Nothing ever happens here in Westhampton beach. I do nothing. I go nowhere.  All sorts of interesting things happen near by but just far enough to be not worth the trip.  I talk to people from other parts of long island, they assure me that there is plenty going on, but when pressed to give details it all turns out to be far away.  I am trapped in this purgatory, forever haunted by memories of a more exciting life.  St. Andrews was good to me, even at the worst of times it was never dull. And ok so the the mojahvi  dessert was slowly killing me (literally, i spent so much time in the intensive care unit that I ended up daiting one of the on call nurses) ; but i always had something to look forward to.  Here there is just nothing.  I used to worry that when I get back to scotland, it might not be the same. That Andrea might not want me back ; that i may end up spend the rest of my life sitting in a pub trying to relive my glory days. I don't wory anymore. Even that would be preferable to this endless nothing.


i keep having these weird dreams featuring people i know. That in it self is odd, my dreams are always about strangers.  But what is really weird is that they are not there as themselves, they are strangers with the faces and voices of people i know.  at some point i should really write some of them down, they are good stories.

Alone again

Well I'm single again. after over 7 years of on and off dating Amanda is gone for good. oddly i have nothing else to say about that.
Anyway i finally put up the pictures from my winter vacation on the queen mary 2.


Just in case i was unclear, i am not miserable. I am in no way discontent, and i find that most peculiar.

ok to finish my last post

well any way now I'v moved into my fathers old vacation house in Westhampton beach. I'v enrolled in Suffolk county community college . OH, and i have my own car now.

Not much is really going on. cant wait to see the new pirates movie

I'm back. healthy and sane, mostly

ok so heres how things went down.

i got to Arizona about 9 months ago. It was ok at first, but then i lost touch with Andrea, lost her ank and started to get really depressed. then i get food poisoning and get verry ill. pretty soon i have a total mental breakdown, suffer from severe depression, and start geting violently ill for no known medical reason. i spent the next couple months in and out of the hospital sometimes staying for weeks at a time. then the final straw, i get kicked out of my dorm for unlawful possession of a letter opener. I'm serious, apparently they class a leter opener as a "simulated weapon".
so now i'm in long island were i wanted to be in the first place, and i'm happy here. and not sick anymore.
it was just the desert and the general hopeless nature of arizona that messed me up

well i'm tire now.

this just needs to be said

Before i go off on a rant, i would like to introduce you to a very entertaining and perhaps even useful website about words. www.urbandictionary.com/

This has been bothering me since 8th grade history

Somewhere along the way we as a nation have forgotten how the government is supposed to work.
Ok, a little review here. The Legislative branch decides what is going to happen. The Executive branch figures out how to do it and then does it. The Judicial branch makes sure the other two don't do anything unconstitutional.
First of all the president has no place making proposals to congress. Congress tells him what to do not the other way around. Some president long ago made a polite suggestion and congress said ooh thats a good idea, lets do that, and the next president did it a few times until, today people have forgotten that The President officially has no say in the matter. Congress needs to grow some balls, a 2/3 vote and the president has to obey.

Second of all, I have been going over the state of the union addresses from now and the past, and i have a question. When did it become a debate? It was once such a simple thing. Just the president standing up and saying this is how things are, this what congress has in mind, and here's how I intend to accomplish those goals. Nice and simple, there were no rebuttals because there there were no opinions to rebuke, just facts. If the parties wish to object to the game plan they should do so before it is announced and set in stone.

In short if all the government officials would do their jobs an keep their noses out of each other's, things would run much more smoothly.
