I'm going to clean out my friends list. I know that no one is going to reply to this so that they will stay on my list, but I thought I'd go ahead and leave this for the off chance that someone does want to stay on my friends list. So you all have until the end of April to comment.

Hello all. I live, just so you all know. I've got my B-day coming up very soon too. I'll be hitting 22 on the 4th of December. Wonder if it's going to be boring or somewhat entertaining.

The Ugly Truth About Beauty
by Dave Barry



If you're a man, at some point a woman will ask you how she looks.

"How do I look?" she'll ask.

You must be careful how you answer this question. The best technique is to form an honest yet sensitive opinion, then collapse on the floor with some kind of fatal seizure. Trust me, this is the easiest way out. Because you will never come up with the right answer.

The problem is that women generally do not think of their looks in the same way that men do. Most men form an opinion of how they look in the seventh grade, and they stick to it for the rest of their lives. Some men form the opinion that they are irresistible stud muffins, and they do not change this opinion even when their faces sag and their noses bloat to the size of eggplants and their eyebrows grow together to form what appears to be a giant forehead-dwelling tropical caterpillar.

Most men, I believe, think of themselves as average-looking. Men will think this even if their faces cause heart failure in cattle at a range of 300 yards. Being average does not bother them; average is fine for men. This is why men never ask anybody how they look. Their primary form of beauty care is to shave themselves, which is essentially the same form of beauty care that they give to their lawns. If, at the end of his four-minute daily beauty regimen, a man has managed to wipe most of the shaving cream out of his hair and is not bleeding too badly, he feels that he has done all he can, so he stops thinking about his appearance and devotes his mind to more critical issues, such as the Super Bowl.

Women do not look at themselves this way. If I had to express, in three words, what most women think about their appearance, those words would be: "not good enough." No matter how attractive a woman may appear to others, when she looks at herself in the mirror, she thinks, "woof." She thinks that at any moment a municipal animal-control officer is going to throw a net over her and haul her off to the shelter.

Why do women have such low self-esteem? There are many complex psychological and societal reasons, by which I mean "Barbie." Girls grow up playing with a doll proportioned such that, if it were human, it would be seven feet tall and weigh 81 pounds, of which 53 pounds would be bosoms. This is a difficult appearance standard to live up to, especially when you contrast it with the standard set for little boys by their dolls . . . excuse me, by their action figures. Most of the action figures that my son played with when he was little were hideous looking. For example, he was fond of an action figure (part of the He-Man series) called "Buzz-Off," who was part human, part flying insect. Buzz-Off was not a looker. But he was extremely self-confident. You could not imagine Buzz-Off saying to the other action figures, "Do you think these wings makes my hips look big?"

But women grow up thinking they need to look like Barbie, which for most women is impossible, although there is a multibillion-dollar beauty industry devoted to convincing women that they must try. I once saw an Oprah show wherein supermodel Cindy Crawford dispensed makeup tips to the studio audience. Cindy had all these middle-aged women apply beauty products to their faces; she stressed how important it was to apply them in a certain way, using the tips of their fingers. All the women dutifully did this, even though it was obvious to any sane observer that no matter how carefully they applied these products, they would never look remotely like Cindy Crawford, who is some kind of genetic mutation.

I'm not saying that men are superior. I'm just saying that you're not going to get a group of middle-aged men to sit in a room and apply cosmetics to themselves under the instruction of Brad Pitt, in hopes of looking more like him. Men would realize that this task was pointless and demeaning. They would find some way to bolster their self-esteem that did not require looking like Brad Pitt. They would say to Brad, "Oh YEAH? Well what do you know about LAWN CARE, pretty boy?"

Of course many women will argue that the reason they become obsessed with trying to look like Cindy Crawford is that men, being as shallow as a drop of spit, WANT women to look that way. To which I have two responses:

1. Hey, just because WE'RE idiots, that does not mean YOU have to be; and

2. Men don't even notice 97 percent of the beauty efforts you make anyway. Take fingernails. The average woman spends 5,000 hours per year worrying about her fingernails; I have never once, in more than 40 years of listening to men talk about women, heard a man say, "She has a nice set of fingernails!" Many men would not notice if a woman had upward of four hands.

Anyway, to get back to my original point: If you're a man, and a woman asks you how she looks, you're in big trouble. Obviously, you can't say she looks bad. But you also can't say that she looks great, because she'll think you're lying, because she has spent countless hours, with the help of the multibillion-dollar beauty industry, obsessing about the differences between herself and Cindy Crawford. Also, she suspects that you're not qualified to judge anybody's appearance. This is because you have shaving cream in your hair.

Your Score: Balance


~ 51% Water ~ 62% Wind ~ 44% Earth ~ 62% Fire ~




And I know and I believe


There's a way out to the sea of happiness


It seems your personality is in perfect harmony; your impulses are tempered with thoughtfulness, and your emotions are balanced with a healthy amount of reason.


In order to maintain that harmony, try wearing a Jade, a Chrysoprase or an Agate; all three enhance balance and stability, as does the Snowflake Obsidian that will help remain balanced during times of change.


In detail: You are more balanced than most people. Your Ground Chakra, (associated with the element of fire and representing our basic desires and driving force), your Creative Chakra, (associated with the element of earth and representing our need to preserve and grow), your Heart Chakra, (associated with the element of water and representing our sense of love and compassion), and your Throat Chakra, (associated with the element of wind and represents our desire to learn and communicate), appear to be on an equal footing with each others.


These are the results you will get if you score highly on...


None of the four elements: Balance Wind: Gust Fire: Blaze Water: River Earth: Valley Wind & Fire: Thunder Wind & Water: Clouds Wind & Earth: Canyon Fire & Earth: Lava Fire & Water: Tornado Water & Earth: Trees Wind, Fire & Earth: Storm Wind, Fire & Water: Stars Wind, Water & Earth: Forest Fire, Water & Earth: Avalanche All four elements: Harmony

Woke up this morning and looked out the back door. At first I had thought it had rained last night, but then I heard something. Happened to be sleet, so as the typical Floridian I did a double-take. After that I went outside and it didn't feel cold enough for sleet. From there I went around gathering sleet and made a would-be snowball, which is currently in the freezer. (Tis my proof to my parents.)

That is the conclusion of my monthly entry. See you next month.

*start of DL rant*

I'm not happy in the least right now. Reason being I am again being cheated out of my DL. I just asked my mom, if she could help me get it set up. Well, she told me I had to do it myself, which makes no since when I haven't a clue what to do. -___-

So I probably won't be driving this weekend. -___- (Sorry, Shana... Looks like you'll have to take me to the movie... I'm really trying to get this dang thing, but yeah... *sighs heavily* -__-)

Sorry for not posting in so long. I've just been so bored I've had nothing to really post about. It's kind of depressing when the only people I see are here for my brother and I'm just there in the way. Sure I chat with people online, but it's very different from hearing the voice of the person. I'm sure everyone can understand what I mean and feel.

Cold - Happens All The Time

I still hang on every word
In the world of faded memories
Where your still in love with me
I can see it in your eyes
You look as if your majordomo has lost control

I must hold on
This happens all the time
I still find my faith in you
I can't hold on
This happens all the time
I still find my way to you

If a dreams all that I've got
Then I wish your in a fairy tale
Where your still in love with me
I could see it in your eyes
The look as if your hero fell and lost his soul

I must hold on
This happens all the time
I still find my faith in you
I can't hold on
This happens all the time
I still find my way to you...

To you...
To you...
To you...

I must hold on
This happens all the time
I still find my faith in you
I can't hold on
This happens all the time
I still find my way to you

(I won't hold on) (I won't hold on) To you... (I won't hold on) (I won't hold on)
(I won't hold on) (I won't hold on) To you... (I won't hold on) (I won't hold on)
(I won't hold on) (I won't hold on) To you... (I won't hold on) (I won't hold on)
(I won't hold on) (I won't hold on) To you... (I won't hold on) (I won't hold on)
(I won't hold on) (I won't hold on) To you... (I won't hold on) (I won't hold on) (I won't hold on) (I won't hold on)
