    Omg It's Christmas In October Here!

    Seriously! It started snowing last night and we have 3-4 inches of snow. All over Maine and some of the other New England states. Sucks. Rediculous. Snow in Halloween. (My younger half sister-Calli.) http://www.wgme.com/newsroom/top_stories/videos/wgme_vid_9770.shtml

    This Place Is A Black Hole.

    I see my mother in the living room. A computer in her lap, a huge tv with Glenn Beck yelling about some clusterf**ck he didn't even google. I see a forest i ride by everyday on the way to work being chopped down so someone can keep their house. I see my boss frantically trying to...

    Forgive This Man.

    Driving along the road one day, I passed along a plaza. Desolate was the sight, abandoned with dirty windows and trash all over the parking lot. A reasonably well-dressed man was sitting on the sidewalk, twisting something beneath his feet, swaying back and forth and...

    An Empty House In the Neighborhood
