Cat Poop Philosophy [Oct. 9th, 2009|02:33 pm]
My cat, Smokey, is perpetually in the moment, free of ambition,and regret. Lacking emotional trappings there is no incentive for him to change habits for the purpose of positive personal growth. For this reason I've chosen to invent (and accept as fact) a reason why I should not find fault in his shitting on the floor adjacent (leftwise) to his litter box.

My roommates are unanimous in believing that this is completely unacceptable behavior, and steps must be taken to correct him as soon as possible. In my opinion this is unfair anthropomorphizing. Every argument had with a loved one has been far worse to experience than any amount of cat shit I've ever stumbled upon. People leave lying emotional, atmospheric, and existential crap often in the middle of the room, in plain sight, and not once have I heard the notion that this is a forbiddable practice. Smokey at least has the common courtesy to leave his privately in a secluded corner of the upstairs bathroom. I regret that he has the burden of most people expecting him to act as humanly as possible with no hope of ever understanding what that means.

Lucky for him, at least, we have hardwood floors.

Dear Livejournal [Oct. 9th, 2008|08:58 pm]
Dear Livejournal,

First, thank you so much for giving me a place to grow and write. You have been there in my lowest and highest moments; from my most literate, to nearly unintelligible. The thing is, I'm blogging somewhere else now. You just aren't offering what I need; I need to move on. Don't worry I'll still read all my friends posts diligently, but you know maintaining two blogs is as impractical as it is cripplingly pathetic. I hope we can still be friends. Take care; it's not you, it's me.

Ok, now that that's done with, please visit my new blog.

it is at http://hoagblog.wordpress.com/

[& around my head |Jesus Christ Was An Only Child // Modest Mouse]

I had a dream the other night. Now, normally I don't express my dreams when I have them because, well, think about it, when was the last time someone told you about their dream and it was actually interesting? Maybe this will be the first occasion in a while for you, but maybe not. Either way, indulge me. What made it interesting (ok, to me anyway) was that I was in no way involved. The entire dream was like watching a movie, in the sense that I had nothing to do with it; I barely ever saw it in first-person.

A man was walking down a busy European looking street. I'm assuming it was European because the rock was all curiously uniform, implying that the rock was gathered from a quarry close enough to not require any tool preceding the industrial revolution. The streets were not nearly wide enough for two of any size car, and every street seemed to turn every which way, as if the city itself was deliberately attempting to confuse you. The man walks by a beautiful woman, (I say that, though I couldn't tell you what she looked like in any way) looks at her, thinks of approaching her, but doesn't. He goes to sleep that night and has a dream (yes, I was dreaming a fictional person's dream) that begins at that exact moment, but instead of passing her, he speaks to her, and a relationship follows. He is confused at first, but every time he falls asleep he dreams that alternate life. So he becomes obsessed with spending as much time as possible in sleep, and becomes overwhelmingly restless and agonized when he is awake.

Now here is what I have been really turning over. Is this a tragedy? On one hand, of course, he's become miserable whenever he's awake; naturally that's a problem. Though, How many people are miserable when they are awake anyway? Could it be he would be miserable if he didn't have the dreams? Who's to say he wouldn't have just been miserable perpetually, without that escape?

It's all beginning to resemble a perfume ad.

[& around my head |Tom Waits // Martha]

I am officially burnt out on sports for the year, and the time has come where I go into sports hibernation until Football kicks off again. How do I know why?

I turned on the T.V. and the Western Kentucky was keeping pace with UCLA in the sweet sixteen, and I said to myself, nearing audability....

"Damn it, I wish the game would end. Jeopardy is on soon!"


Let the healing begin.

From the Guinness book of world records 2008:

"In 1985, Mr. Potato Head received four postal votes in the mayoral election in Boise, Idaho. However, he failed to win the election which is a good thing, as Mr. Potato Head is a toy manufactured by Hasbro."

Thanks for the clarification Guinness.
