My poor haiku section is so neglected. I think I'm going to get back in there and play with the form I love so much.


Language and expression purified to the point of absolute essence. I miss you.

I'm still suspicious that it came and like 5 people were raptured, but I'm pessimistic like that.

You know, Meeper, after reading your journal entry with the Post-rapture pet service, I'm convinced we've got it all wrong. I bet God is going to rescue all the animals first. They deserve it WAY more.

Is it wrong that Welsh people make me smile no matter what they say? I kinda want to hear a Welsh lady curse me out...it would be like pissing off an elf.

I've always wanted to go to Wales. I love the accent and there much to learn about the place.



"Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch" is the name of a town in Wales. Yep, all that. It means: The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio's of the red cave.

Dad brought over his smoker and gave Stabb and me the run-down. Apparently, it's the Cadillac of smokers.


J: So dad, when you smoke a turkey...

D: Yeah?

J: Should you inhale?

S: oh god

D: The hardest part is getting them lit.

S: ...

Please take note:


At 3 PM Central, the Army Corps of Engineers will be opening spillway gates to divert the rising Mississippi River away from New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Approximately 25,000 people will be intentionally flooded.

Live video feed of the Morganza Spillway should be on soon.


They will be evacuated, but it is a sober moment -a historic one - the gates have only ever been opened once before, 38 years ago. Please pray for the people impacted and the safe execution of this endeavor.


"The corps will conduct a “slow opening” of the spillway, and once released the water will take days to pour out into the Atchafalaya River basin, filling up marshes, engorging bayous, submerging hundreds of thousands of acres of farmland and seeping into thousands of homes. It will also test the network of federally and locally built levees that wall off towns and small Cajun communities throughout the basin."


I understand, but I'm sad. I love each one of these small towns and my heart is heavy.

These decisions are agonizing ones... the region has been through so much the last few years. Things upon our Earth are changing, quickly. For many, life will never be the same.

Being here, like you- I've been thinking about it a lot as well. Same thing happened in my Father's area just days ago- they exploded a levee and flooded my family's farming area in SouthEast Missouri to keep from flooding Cairo, IL. Many homes were flooded there. Hurt some to protect others. It's just too messy. I guess it's cheaper for the government to help smaller towns than bigger ones.

I'll add that... I couldn't make the decision myself. I'm glad it's not my line of business. Even being here and having weathered Katrina, knowing our suffering- I couldn't bring myself to hurting another area to protect mine.

My two cents, unsolicited and worth every penny you paid for them.


I'm not beloved by everyone, nor is the faith I follow, nor is the cause I serve. People have contradictory opinions or humor I don't necessarily understand. They are often public about all of it. Sometimes the things I love most are "targeted." But I want to be clear about that word...real targeting involves the intent to aim and purposefully deliver a blow...to kill or injure in some way.


I don't think we had that here. I could see questioning the timing...maybe the taste level of a quip you dislike, but holding the PERSON up to a spotlight and questioning their character/charitable nature seems a bit harsher and more focused than the quip itself warranted.


Should Cancer change his nick because it is insensitive to people with the disease of the same name? He should have known not to be born under that star sign and all of us should test the wind before making a joke that could be deemed insensitive...by someone.


By the way, most of us have been touched by cancer, the disease (a few lucky ones by the prince.) My mom and dad both, as I've written about in my journal. Mom had a full mastectomy after her second recurrance and seems fine for now. Dad is still fighting lung cancer, and he jokes about it. We all do. It's kind of necessary for us to make the foe faceable...and it is. Even the kinds that take those we love. We need to take the causes we serve seriously, but not every human response is an affront.


"Yeah, yeah, Dad, we know...you get the last piece of cake because you have cancer!"


We win. We live, hurt, and still laugh...not at the hurt, but because the hurt is not allowed to define us. We choose grace instead.

Grace and decency are hard to find in characters around here in Vampire Rave.

There's something missing when a person thinks joking about Cancer's name is inappropriate but views it as perfectly okay to question someone's character and whether or not they give enough.



Can it get any more condescending? Do people ever respond well to that?

I gotta disagree with you there, warrior princess. They are not so tough to find here. But like anywhere, you have to actively look if it is what you genuinely ca

re about.

I'm with you on that. Life would be far too boring if we took everything seriously, there is humour (and should be humour) in ill-health just as much as in good health.

I know, I know... I just keep changing my mind about the sequel. I write a little bit, proof-read it, delete it, re-write, re-read, add something, take something out, delete it all, start over.



Rinse. Repeat.

Wipe hands on pants.



I mean, this isn't like The Stand or anything. It keeps turning into a "Made for the Hallmark Channel" story, and that is SO NOT what I'm going for.



I need to hire Quentin Tarantino for a few re-writes. Does he still do that?
