I remember when I was a kid, everyone had to like me. If they didn't I was doing something wrong. I was the ultimate people pleaser. I let everyone run me down. The kids in my grade school kicked the ever loving scrap outta me every day for years. They locked me in lockers, rubbed my face in mud, snow, slush, I should have been a postman I was well trained. My father would not teach me to fight. The only reason I could figure was because he occasionally kicked my butt too. I've had all kinds of injuries from beatings in my life. I've had a lot of pain, emotional, physical. Back then I was really scared of everything and everyone but I was really afraid of fighting. It was horrible - it would be HELL to even try to capture the feeling I had inside of myself. I remember that I wanted to die every day, and taking chances wasn't a problem.
One of the games I liked to play by myself was tag with the vehicles on the Borman Expressway. I would run back and forth thru the lanes each time I was narrowly missed. I would not be here if I got hit on the Borman I'd be road kill. I went to Military school for a few months; I learned how to fight there some. They wanted to start a boxing team but it didn't work out. If it had I probably would have found an out for my rage and graduated from the joint. Instead I got booted out. It wasn't too long after that all the other scrap happened. Then I discovered that alcohol made me unafraid of anything. HELL, I used my face for a battering ram. I was Crazy, all those years of beatings. Sometimes I wonder why the HELL I'm alive. I know now it's to make the Grammar Nazi go insane.
I wish I could take credit for the "No Poop Fo You Comment." But that was someone else's idea, in that thread. One of those where I was being mildly SPANKED, by several trolls that insist the criticism is mild, and I'm blowing up over nothing losing my temper etc. etc. etc. I'm not losing my temper if I were I might be drinking and you would really hate me then. I'm no tough guy, but no people pleaser either. Any anger I feel becomes part of my determination to be who I am today. I was never able to totally get rid of my anger just put it to better use. There are things said here I agree with and other things I don't. I voice my opinion through my writing and comments. Some people get bent out of shape it's pretty funny. I know I'm SNOT the king of Santa Barbara, I don't know why they think I am?
Someone has been suggesting that Drunk Drivers and DUI Drivers get their mug shots released to the media. I think that is a wonderful idea. I think it might even cut down on Drunk Drivers, and those who drive under the influence of drugs. That is just my opinion I wonder why their mug shots are not released to the media. They are under arrest in most cases of driving under the influence if they are in custody. I guess if they are in the hospital it might be different.
Hoppy New Beer Everyone no matter whom you are, have a wonderful year. In my opinion it's SNOT going to end 12/12/12, but I might be WONG. My sorts of New Year's resolutions are appearing. I'd really like to go through all of my things and have a weird giveaway for a donation in front in the next couple of months. I never got to paint my place or get new carpet because I keep getting hurt. Even then I'm a bit of a hoarder and need to unload some things like a megaphone, an antique manual typewriter, a lot of stuffed animals, knick knacks, books, etc. Anyway, have a wonderful New Years and DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE, OR DRIVE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ANYTHING.
