i was over at postsecret when i saw a note about HOPELINE, a national suicide hotline.

i’ve had family members, friends, and acquaintances both attempt and succeed at committing suicide. maybe if those that died had gotten help, they would still be around. i couldn’t donate much, but i did donate. if you can spare enough for a couple of coffees, you could help several people get what they need. it’s so hard when you feel utterly alone in the world and think that no one cares about you and whether you even live. it’s a scary, dark, lonely place to be. and if i can help even one person out of that, then i will.

Dear Frank,

I received your Federal Express envelope today and deposited your generous donation of $4,000.00. Thank you.

As I explained to you on the phone yesterday, we are in desperate need of raising an additional $1,000.00 in the next 7 days in order to keep 1(800)SUICIDE operational.

I would not ask you to do this if it were not urgent but could you share our need with those who visit your website?

People can go to http://www.hopeline.com and make an online donation or they can contact me directly, if they prefer.

Thanks again Frank. I would not make this plea if it were not so critical.

Warm regards,

Reese Butler,

people are stupid

if you don’t read sarcastic journalist, you should. i just read her story about some parents that locked their 15 month old child in the car, alone. in houston, where it’s already hot. she saw the whole thing and reported it to the cops. i’m amazed at people that act like their children are an inconvenience. yeah, not everything’s perfect when you have kids. but if you can’t make sacrifices for them, what are you doing having kids in the first place? people are stupid.

i am ironman

i’m not really a big ‘ok cupid’ fan. but wendy posted this personality thing and i love it. had to share. been busy this week with my plans to take over the world a conference.

Robot
You are 57% Rational, 42% Extroverted, 14% Brutal, and 0% Arrogant.
You are the Robot!  You are characterized by your rationality.  In fact, this is really ALL you are characterized by.  Like a cold, heartless machine, you are so logical and unemotional that you scarcely seem human.  For instance, you are very humble and don’t bother thinking of your own interests, you are very gentle and lack emotion, and you are also very introverted and introspective.  You may have noticed that these traits are just as applicable to your laptop as they are to a human being.  In short, your personality defect is that you don’t really HAVE a personality.  You are one of those annoying, super-logical people that never gets upset or flustered.  Unless, of course, you short circuit.  Or if someone throws a pie at you.  Pies sure are delicious.

To put it less negatively:

1.  You are more RATIONAL than intuitive.

2.  You are more INTROVERTED than extroverted.

3.  You are more GENTLE than brutal.

4.  You are more HUMBLE than arrogant.

Compatibility:

Your exact opposite is the Class Clown.

Other personalities you would probably get along with are the Hand-Raiser, the Emo Kid, and the Haughty Intellectual.

*

*

If you scored near fifty percent for a certain trait (42%-58%), you could very well go either way.  For example, someone with 42% Extroversion is slightly leaning towards being an introvert, but is close enough to being an extrovert to be classified that way as well.  Below is a list of the other personality types so that you can determine which other possible categories you may fill if you scored near fifty percent for certain traits.

The other personality types:

The Emo KidIntuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Starving ArtistIntuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Bitch-SlapIntuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

The BruteIntuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The HippieIntuitive, Extroverted, Gentle, Humble.

The TelevangelistIntuitive, Extroverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Schoolyard BullyIntuitive, Extroverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Class ClownIntuitive, Extroverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The RobotRational, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Haughty IntellectualRational, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Spiteful LonerRational, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

The SociopathRational, Introverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Hand-RaiserRational, Extroverted, Gentle, Humble.

The BraggartRational, Extroverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Capitalist PigRational, Extroverted, Brutal, Humble.

The SmartassRational, Extroverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

went to breakfast on the beach at world famous (mmmm, excellent food) and then on to the swap meet for some wondering around. didn’t get back to the house until after 1pm, then took a nap until 3. you know what? i think it was just what the doctor ordered.

wish i had my camera, though. i’m dying to get out and snap some pics. gotta get back in practice for when we go to belize, because i plan on coming back with some amazing photos.

extinction

don’t you just feel sorry for someone that’s a dinosaur?

you know they can’t keep up with technology – their brain doesn’t know how to wrap around the new ways of thinking and doing things. they’re still trying to apply old solutions to new problems. and they can’t figure out why it doesn’t work.

“look at me, i’m finally using a typewriter!”

“uh, good?” (yet you’re screaming inside your head: “no, that’s not good! a typewriter is not good! why did you tell them good? it’s not good! that’s old, get out of that mindset!”)

it’s hard to get them to see that even though they’re trying to update, they’re still so very. far. behind the times. and it’s sad.
