This is going to be a weird one.

Ok, as I'm sure some of you know, my life has hit surreal. I keep waiting for the clocks to melt.

I first need to apologize for being a bitch to so damn many of you here recently. I think I've hit my cycle.

This is from confusedboy69 and I got a kick out of it.
A Little Rock woman was killed yesterday after leaping through her moving car's sun roof during an incident best described as a "mistaken rapture" by dozens of eye-witnesses. Thirteen other people were injured after a twenty-car pile-up resulted from people trying to avoid hitting the woman who was apparently convinced that the rapture was occurring when she saw twelve people floating up into the air, and then passed a man on the side of the road who she claimed was Jesus. "She started screaming "He's back!, He's back!" and climbed right out of the sunroof and jumped off the roof of the car," said Everet Williams, husband of 28-year-old Georgann Williams who was pronounced dead at the scene. "This is the strangest thing I've seen since I've been on the force," said Paul Madison, first officer on the scene. Madison questioned the man who looked like Jesus and discovered that he was on his way to a toga costume party, when the tarp covering the bed of his pickup truck came loose and released twelve blow-up sex dolls filled with helium which then floated up into the sky. Ernie Jenkins, 32, of Fort Smith, who's been told by several of his friends that he looks like Jesus, pulled over and lifted his arms into the air in frustration, and said "Come back," just as the Williams' car passed him, and Mrs. Williams was sure that it was Jesus lifting people up into the sky as they passed by him, according to her husband, who says his wife loved Jesus more than anything else. When asked for comments about the twelve sex dolls, Jenkins replied "This is all just too weird for me. I never expected anything like this to happen."

I'm sorry, my life has been really strange. I don't know what happened.

This is in honor of Lughnasad or Lammas.

A Lammas Poem

Nothing lasts forever
the flowers wilt
their colors fade
petals fall
stems droop
waiting for rebirth

forever gone
the flower blooms
in the mind
of the viewer

immortality grant
a happy bloom
in the mind

nothing forgotten
recorded in Time's
great skein
in memory remain
for eternity

Love bless us all
that we might bloom
after we have wilted.

Happy Lammas to all.

I just don't get it. I feel like someone flipped a switch and everything went to the Twilight Zone. I keep waiting for Rod Serling to show up. And I'm so sick of people geting mad at me for my politcal apathy. It's not that I don't care, but I have to put my own needs ahead of my ideal right now. War and Peace are going to happen regardless of whether or not I eat dinner. I am just one man. I can only do so much. And I do care. I just have so much other stuff to sort out right now.

Shalom, blessed be, go in peace.

For some reason, that story made me very happy.

Well, if nothing else, it got me laughing, something I needed very much.
