The Lasagna is in the oven

On it's first baking. Tomorrow it gets baked again.

And I need to cook a small pot of sauce, I used it all making this one. My mother likes to have a little extra sauce on the side. This lasagna is meaty on one side, veggie on the other. There's about a pound of meat in the meat side - meatballs and sausage. The veggie side has broccoli, spinach and carrots, the whole thing has ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, asiago and Romano cheeses. About 3 pounds of cheese in total. All that and a rather epic sauce made the old fashioned way from fresh ingredients.

And I still have a fucking sweet potato pie to make because some bitch from New York has obviously been living in the south too fucking long. And I stole the recipe from Jerome Bettis' mom. So it ought to be pretty good.

So yeah I like sweet potato pie.

I've also got a shit ton of sugar cookies. And cherry chocolate mudslides. These things are like murder by chocolate.

Oh yeahs.

So at the moment

I have sugar cookie dough chilling on the fridge.

I have home made tomato sauce simmering on the stove.

The meatballs, sausage, and veggies are all prepared and ready to go.

And my apartment smells of an Italian kitchen.

Must be almost Christmas.

It's my birthday.

Did you buy me anything?

Yeah another year of my life down the shitter. Meh, could be worse, my greatest achievement could be a large pizza with the works, like someone else we have met.

I got nothing planned today.

Actually that's bullshit. I have shopping to do. I need to find my dad a new ottoman. I need to buy fresh veggies and spices for the Christmas Lasagna. I need to pick up a few sundry items at the store. I want to bake cookies! Ummm, yeah.

And all I really want to do is take a nap then get hammered.

Happy birthday to me bitches!

Wisdom (or lack there of) from a windbag.

Remember Lighthouse? The bloated, windbag, loser 30 year old virgin that works in a pizza shop. Made a rather rude comment on my blog and got pwn'd. Yeah him. He said something on that I just really felt the need to share.
If we could actually find one example of a queer that isn't a rude, inconsiderate, jerk [for lack of better terms that I can use on TOL] we might lighten up. But every single one is the antithesis of good.

"Rude, inconsiderate, jerk" sounds a lot like Lighthouse. Heck, it sounds like most fundies. Thank you Lighthouse, thank you for giving me a good laugh. You stupid fucking windbag piece of shit.

I've never really met many homosexuals that were rude or inconsiderate, met a lot of fundies that were. How about you?

So DADT has been repealed. Is that a conservative I hear screaming?

Here's a news article.

I'm amused by the conservatives that are flipping out over this. The arguments seem to either center around battlefield distractions or showers. I wish I was making this up.

Now I'm not in the military, never been in the military and probly never will serve. Sometimes I think I should have, but at the age of damn near 34, I think it's a bit too late to change careers. I don't think I'm in a position to tell the military what it should or should not do. I also don't think the government, to an extent, should be doing such a thing either, honestly. Still, I do have an opinion and I see no reason not to voice it.

Let's start with the battlefield distraction argument. You got to be kidding me, right? I guess if your bigotry and your homophobia are more important to you than the oath you took when you signed up it could be. But if that's the case, who's the real problem? Is it the gay soldier that's doing his job or the soldier that refuses to put his differences aside? I'm just not seeing any other way a gay soldier could be a distraction. I mean it's not like they are going to leap out of their foxhole and put on a fabulous drag show in the middle of combat. Get the fuck over it.

The shower argument is even funnier. Most people that know me or read the crap I post in this blog know I spent probly too much time on a predominantly Fudementalist Christian conservative message board known as Sure enough, the shower issue came up right away in a thread about the DADT repeal. Now I asked my other half about the showers. I mean she was in the Army and served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Community showers are not the norm any more and haven't been for years. You see them in basic training and then you have barely enough shower time to get wet. There's no time for you to be ogled or to ogle anyone. Quit whining and get the fuck over it. You might see a community shower in a combat zone. But you actually do have a little privacy in it from what I hear and when you have spent the last few days sleeping in the dirt with out a shower, are you really going to be looking at anyone else? Are they going to be looking at you? I don't think so. Getting clean for the first time in a few days starts to get pretty damn important. They could probly do away with separate showers and I doubt anyone would notice. It's not like you really get a whole lot of shower time anyway. I'm going by what I have heard from someone who is a pretty reliable source so if I got this wrong, please correct me.

I'm not seeing the big deal and I honestly think that the conservatives are making a big deal over nothing. But I really don't give a flying fuck who anyone sleeps with as long as it's between consenting adults and no one is being harmed. As long as they are doing their jobs, does it really matter?

Anybody reading this rant have any thoughts?

I made oatmeal raisin cookies. And other oddities.

Not quite just as planned. I think they could be better. Going to try sugar cookies next. I've got plenty of baking stuffs so I could try again. And again, and again.

I found a recipe for a sweet potato pie that I can't wait to try out. I love sweet potato pie!

Been working a lot of hours and making a lot of overtime. Not complaining, I need the cash. I am starting to get the impression that I work more hours than most people at my work.

Why is it that the most pious are also the biggest douchebags? Seriously I've never met anyone more obnoxious and mean spirited as a fundamentalist. Really what gives? Did I miss something in Leviticus or Corinthians that says "Thou must be a douchebag for the lord"?

And why are they always so quick to tell you what you do and what you think? Don't ask, just tell. And maybe it's just me they do this to, but it seems like I can never have any sort of a rational conversation with a fundie with out them bringing up what they think goes on in my bedroom. Debating the age of the Earth suddenly turns to "You dress like a lady and have sex with men!" A discussion about global warming becomes "You sodomize people in your dwelling!" WTF?? Really What the FUCK???!!! Even if I was doing that, it's not even close to being related to the subject at hand. Why bring it up? Really, why? When I debate with someone, I don't think about them having sex.

Well that was nice to get off my chest.

Still a few more days until my birthday, buy me something.

One week to go

until my birthday.

You bought me something, right?

It's cool if you didn't, but it would be really cool if you did. Or drop something in the tip jar or at least hit me up on some social networking and wished me a happy birthday.

I still wouldn't mind going out and getting hammered......

...and nailed. :p

I got a stalker! I got a stalker!

You don't! I do!
You can sleep at night!
I'm gonna die!

Probly not, though the "Stats" feature on Blogger has revealed something interesting to me. If I check my traffic sources, this shows up as a popular referring URL for the last day.

And when I go to it, I get this.

Persephone66, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
  1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
  2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

That's very interesting. A link to my blog on a part of that I cannot access. Things that make me go "Hmmmmm." Would Jesus talk about people behind their backs? I'm not surprised that his faithful followers would.

More interesting is this popular search keyword.
charles brichauser substitute teacher
My name with the words "substitute teacher"on the end of it. Which is one of my jobs. Very interesting. Why would someone be looking that up? I can't imagine. I searched it myself and only got my blog. Was it being used to find something else? Someone trying to dig up dirt on me or something?

I'm wondering if any of this is related to the worthless piece of shit that flamed me the other day. Who knows? I'm quite amused by it though. I ain't skeered!!!!!!

I'll have AngelSpit close this one out for me, seems appropriate.

Slow night and what is that burning smell?

Oh, it's just a small flamewar starting in my previous blog. Have a look at the comments and, please, fan, fuel or even douse the fires if you feel the need to. The short of it is I've got some total fucking loser talking shit here about me. Same total fucking loser that was talking shit on TOL. I don't get it. If you ignore someone on a message board, why would you make efforts to annoy them? And why in the ever loving fuck would you go to their blog? And comment on it? What the flying fuck? Seriously, if you are going to ignore someone, fucking ignore them! Talking shit is not ignoring. If you feel compelled use a message board's ignore feature because you don't want to read their posts, why go to their blog? It makes no sense. All I got to say about that.

Moving on, moving forward.

Slow night here at the hotel and due to a sick co-worker I'm flying this one solo. It's all good though. Gives me time to blog and play some Eve Online. Speaking of which, I installed Fraps on the new laptop. Thinking about making some Eve videos and posting them on the internet. Hopefully people seem to like it. Would you like to see some Eve videos? Tell me in the comments. I'm thinking gameplay and tutorials. And if anyone knows of a good software for video editing that runs on Linux, let me know please.

Are you digging this weather? I'm not digging this weather.

So the latest thing to go viral that I have heard of is Miley Cyrus toking on a bong. Is it wrong of me not to be shocked at all by this? Seems to be the thing. Teenager makes it big in the world of pop then throws it all away when they turn 18.

Still working on my book, still on the second chapter.

I think that's about all I have for now. I'll close with Voltaire, it seems fitting.

More Random Ramblings: Things are picking up edition

The old Pink Dell sold! It's being shipped in the morning. The battery never sold though. This makes me sad.

I've got some of my debts cleared up for now. This makes me happy. Getting holiday pay + overtime + paid for selling stuff is a big help.

I'm now well into the second chapter of my futuristic, sci-fi, cyber-punk novel. Nearly all of it has been written on the bus. Not lie. I guess I should thank PSTA for that, but their service still sucks and the bus I was on tonight smelled like shit and piss.

Speaking of feverishly typing while on the bus, it's really fucking rude to look over someone's shoulder when they are doing such. And if you are being so fucking rude, don't bitch about what you see. Case in point, The other day I was on the bus typing away. This crabby old wretch behind me looks over my shoulder and starts bitching at me about the scantly-clad anime girl on my desktop. I've got a pretty big screen so it's silly to maximize my word processor. She got told to stop looking and mind her own fucking business. I have to say though, that incident was not anywhere near as funny as the old homeless woman that thought I was typing something about her.

Is it just the places I shop, or have the receipts from discount department stores been getting longer? Seriously, WTF? Why in the ever loving fuck do I need 2 feet of paper when I only purchased 2 cans of Monster? And there was a whole lot of shit printed on this receipt too. Return policies, some thing about a survey, some other thing about a rewards card. Really, just save yourself the paper and print me a nice, short, simple receipt like back in the olden days. Fuck you and fuck your 2 foot receipt! Fuck you straight up the ass with a cheese grater!

So I have this urge to bake stuff. I'm not sure why. If I had a vagina I'd think that either I was pregnant or my biological clock was ticking. Maybe it is ticking. I mean I'm almost 34 and I don't have kids. I kinda want one or two. I'm not in a position to be a good parent though. But at the least, I want to bake things like cookies, cupcakes, pies, cheesecake. Yeah, kinda weird, right? I mean I like to cook, but baking? Not something I usually do.

If my co-workers still read this, I wonder if they are expecting me to bring something in. I might. They do it, I guess I could too. Maybe.

Speaking of my co-workers, one of them got divorced. CONGRATS!!!!!! is she's reading this that is.

If you noticed the links, I signed up for the Amazon Associates program. So now I have product links in my blog. I am trying to make some comedy of it. Or at least make cool links. I get paid if you click them, more if you buy something. I think that's how it works.

I've got this rather obnoxious, stupid, loser starting shit with me on TOL. The guy is 30, single, still a virgin, lives at home, works in a pizza shop and has no education or life experience to speak of, yet he speaks like he thinks he's some sort of an authority. Amusingly enough, Adam Briggs is his pastor. The really funny thing is that he has me on ignore yet still talks trash. Seems a bit cowardly. But look at the spineless piece of shit he's got for a spiritual leader.

That's it for this installment. Drop me a comment, I'd like to know what anyone reading this has to say.
