Alaska

Arrived in Alaska this morning at about 2:30am after spending a couple (mostly) fun days in Seattle.  Met up with my  Dad and Stepmom, Claudia for breakfast and went on our Paddleboat River tour.  Had lunch in Fairbanks before taking a 2.5 hr bus ride to Denali -- where we just checked into our lodge and are about to go out and get some eats (and hopefully drinks)...

Hungarian workers get shock at bottom of rum barrel

May 4, 9:49 AM (ET)
Reuters Hungarian builders who drank their way to the bottom of a huge barrel of rum while renovating a house got a nasty surprise when a pickled corpse tumbled out of the empty barrel, a police magazine website reported.

According to online magazine zsaru.hu [zsaru.hu] , workers in Szeged in the south of Hungary tried to move the barrel after they had drained it, only to find it was surprisingly heavy and were shocked when the body of a naked man fell out.

The website said that the body of the man had been shipped back from Jamaica 20 years ago by his wife in the barrel of rum in order to avoid the cost and paperwork of an official return.

According to the website, workers said the rum in the 300-liter barrel had a "special taste" so they even decanted a few bottles of the liquor to take home.

The wife has since died and the man was buried in a proper grave.

anthems

even tho i never swear or think odd in anyway...Still gotta say this is sorta my anthem -- even if it is, ah crap, 12 years old now....damn that's harsh to think about...

It took so long to remember just what happened.
I was so young and vestal then,
you know it hurt me,
but I'm breathing so I guess I'm still alive
even if signs seem to tell me otherwise.


I've got my hands bound,
my head down ,  my eyes closed,
and my throat wide open.

Do unto others what has been done to me
Do unto others what has been done to you

I'm treading water,
I need to sleep a while.
My lamb and martyre, you look so precious.
Won't you come a bit closer,
close enough so I can smell you.

I need you to feel this,
I can't stand to burn too long.
Released in this sodomy.
For one sweet moment I am whole.

Do unto me now what has been done to me.
Do unto me now what had been done.

You're breathing so I guess you're still alive
even if signs seem to tell me otherwise.
Won't you come just a bit closer,
close enough so I can smell you.

I need you to feel this.
I need this to make me whole.
There's release in this sodomy.

For I am your witness that
blood and flesh can be trusted.
only this one holy medium brings me piece of mind.

Got your hands bound, your head down,
your eyes closed.
You look so precious now.

I have found some kind of temporary sanity in this
shit blood and cum on my hands.

I've come round full circle.
My lamb and martyr, this will be over soon.
You look so precious,
You look so precious,
You look so precious,
You look so precious now,
You look so precious...

Lose freedom of choice and they still die

So I was reading this news story on yahoo news.  Pretty self explanatory, we as a Nation can't keep alive the babies that are being born as it is, Yet the Bush in his Almighty Holy wisdom would rather take choice away from mothers. I guess rather than ending a life before it is born, we should maybe just stack the baby bodies a little higher after they suffer a little while outside of the womb.  Maybe we can start adding them with the worldwide death toll Bush has created...

 That's it - I'm so not outwardly political but damn.

True equality will only be achieved if the law applies to all couples, whatever their sexuality.
