    So I higly recommend the happletea.

    com blog where this *****'s shamelessly plugged from, especially if you're not strongly attached to any particular faith. Not only is it full of humorous strips based on various mythologies, but each one is accompanied by little in-depth information about said myth. In this case...

    Twice As Strong

     Having nearly died on two occasions and being able to reflect upon them is really something. One used to scare the crap out of me, because I actually was really close to death it pretty much was the last sensation I experienced before I fell unconscious. Now its just a...

    Stranger

    Best group I've seen in a while. And, true for me. We all get put through trials. No one comes out completely unscathed. Every experience we have affects our perspective on the very next experience we have. I read this somewhere recently and it keeps bugging me: Once you learn...

    It Sounds Reasonable To Me

    Getting Stranger By the Minute

    My weirdness has been a coping mechanism for years... it's gotten me out of some sticky situations.  I have utilized my twisted wit for as long as I can rememeber.   I've even had people get the idea to fight me, I abhor violence so I would say something...

    What did not kill me made me stronger. But it also knocked a few screws off my head. I will never be the same.
