Random Thoughts #36

--Good news from Texas: It looks as though my Mom's heart is significantly improving. After more tests, they now believe her low pumping power was due to damage from her defibrillator implant. She's now pumping at 40% rather than 12%, and they've moved her to a level 7, which is essentially "on hold until further notice."

--Bad news from Texas: Now that both Mom and Dad are feeling better, they've decided they're going to come to Kansas City for a visit. While in general this is good news, I'm going to have to figure out what to do with the motorcycle so that I can continue to perpetuate the lie that their son is safe and responsible.

--Speaking of exciting weekend events, I got my garage door installed on Friday. On Saturday morning as I was about to paint it, the motorized opener (which they did not replace) made a loud pop and stopped working. Just my luck. They're suggesting it was simply coincidence; I'm suggesting they owe me a new opener due to improper installation. I'll keep you posted on the outcome.

--Internet find of the month: XTube. It's basically YouTube, but for slightly less virtuous videos. Don't even THINK about going there during work. Fun times for straight, gay and everyone in between.

--I've lost what I thought was a good friend. My buddy (that moved here from NY) and I have stopped talking. It's a long story, but the Lifetime movie goes like this: "Will you pay the deposit on my apartment?" "No." "I don't understand why not, you're so unreasonable. Waaaaa!" He stops returning my calls. Oh well, you think you know people.

--One of my worst character traits is my ability to completely erase my feelings for other people. It's like a faucet, either off or on. I fully appreciate the fact that disassociation as a coping mechanism isn't the greatest strategy for maintaining long-term relationships, but I've used it pretty effectively in the past. In the aforementioned case, I have subsequently exercised these pathologies to their fullest extent.

Damn!! Had never heard of X-Tube. Almost wish I had not...already addicted. Love the amateur stuff and of course any foot shots.

Good job on the "No," because there isn't enough money in the world to pay all the "friends" and family that would come knocking if they thought you were handing it out.

Another way to welcome you into the 21st Century, try pornotube dot com.

Not that I have, mind you.

How can ur "feelings faucet" be ur WORST trait??? It seems to work well for u doesn't it? It is a defensemechanism that I ALSO have implanted in my personality. I know it works quite well for me...and USUALLY the OTHER party is the one who turned the faucet to the "off" position. I just choose to not turn it back "on". KEEP this strategy!!!

Yay xtube! I also recently found this. I'll have to check out pornotube as Mikell suggests.

I mean ... not that I'm into that or anything ...

Dave,

I am curious...I have seen comments made about feet on here...You into feet?

Now why would I disclose my twisted sexual fetishes to total strangers?? Especially anonymous ones?

OK, fine. I like feet.

Thanks Dave. I am Bryan. Just down and over a state from you in Arkansas. Sorry, I should have introduced myself before asking such a question. Nice to meet a fellow foot fetisher.
