Well here it is. Another Route. This is from home to work and from work to Movie Gallery with a stop off to show off my trike to a friend. Then From Movie Gallery to home. A pretty good trip around Columbia, Mo.


Horribly Sad Lyrics

May 2008

Lyrics from a group called 4th25. Stationed in Iraq.

Matter of Time

Im half way home
But its still a long road to be traveled
And I know at any given moment
Things can go soar

From sweet to the streets on fire
Problems unravel
Still holdin my breath
Boots laced for battle

In a place
Where they would gladly
See me scattered all over they streets
Cause here my life don’t matter

And thought they smile
Underneath those grins
They only waitin on they next chance
To try to kill me again

And don’t be caught thinking out here
That your chances are slim
Cause there are those who have thought it
Who will never think again

Cause we’re alone in this country
140, 000 friends
and some 20 odd million
that ed see us all dead

you could only imagine our struggle
the odds were against
where they are at all times
playin both sides of the fence

and thought they havnt gotten me yet
I still aint home
And till then
Its only a matter time till im gone

Its only a matter of time For they get me
Though so far they missed me
Next time they shoot in my direction
Could be the one that hits me

Yeah the odds is against me
Lucks been wit me so far
I know deaths round the corner
But I don’t know how far

And I aint trying to hear my #
Though it could be the next one called
Told my family I’d be home
But iraqs trying to prove me wrong

This weighs heavy on my shoulders
I can only be so strong
sure we all gon survive
But we don’t know how long

Started out with 60 minutes
In the game of our lives
And so far thank god
Everything is alright

From bein in the middle of the street
In the middle of the night
Where they are baitin they hooks
Castin and hopin I bite

And its too late
Here to be worried whether or not this is right
When its somebody on every corner
Ready to widow my wife

And I can feel it more than a lil bit
Impactin my life
Got me wantin to kill everything
That moves into my sight

Cause I can lose only once
And there are no rematches
And there is no 2 minute warning
cant brace for it happens

so we face it
and come so close we can taste it
the one trip we take everyday
and hope we never make it

cause deaths right behind us
and some of us will never shakem
but when we are challenged
we can not refuse to playem

so we knuckle the fuck up
and start swinging
know its only a matter of time
but right now we are not leavin


look here, im trying to keep it together
but things fall apart
specially when im gon for so long
losin feelin in my heart

desensitized by my surroundings
every colors turning dark
I don’t see nothing beautiful no more
Only targets my reticle marks

Was emotional then emotionless
Now I don’t feel a thing
And though it once killed me to kill
I’d gladly do it again

If only you could really understand
The state of mind that im in
Only then could you feel me
Only then would I make sense

If only I hadn’t a been to
some of the places I had been
If only I wouldn’t a seen what I saw
Maybe I could feel again

But its too hard to separate
Whats goin on within me
Its just so much easier
To let hate be my remedy

So for everything im guilty of
Let the lord sentence me
If only I wouldnt a let everything
I been thru get to me

Things could a been different
But that is not my reality
And either way
Its only a matter of time for im outta here.

Hello, another trike route:


So this route is in honor of Knit in Public day. I’m not a knitter but my wife is. (I spin. (And not just on my trike.))

I start at home and go down Rollins to West, basically, then to Stewart to Garth and the Library. I just caught the end of Chelsea’s time there, so I rode from there to the mall, via Ash. And then from the mall home via Fairview and some backstreets and Rollins again.

It was fun hanging out at the mall, I just wish I could have came up with more hooks for the game tomorrow, but I’m sure I’ll think of more as the game comes closer.

So I don’t have internet access at the doctor in hermann missouri, so I’m composing this blog post to send to myself when I have access. I know she’s going to say something about my weight. Yup, high blood pressure and I need to get my cholesterol checked. But on the plus side I get diet pills! :) (I also get prilosec but that’s not nearly as fun.)

Major Update

Aug 2009

So Chelsea said that Michelle wanted us to host a blog for her. I have no problem with that, and it only took me a few minutes to have it installed and running.  But…

Looking for a theme for her made me realize that I haven’t posted in a long time and I’m way behind in my wordpress version.  So I updated my wordpress.  Took a little while, but that wasn’t the biggie.  I had find a theme.  Customize it.  You know the drill.

Well all said and done, I like it.  I only have one problem with the new wordpress.  It’s making me obsolete.  Now Chelsea can update her own wordpress, (Though I still need to back up her database), she can install her own plugins, even templates.   Sigh.  I’m just not needed anymore.  :)

Just a day.

Today could have been better, could have been worse. All in all, not bad. Played a lot of fable2. (They ripped me off. When I went into the spire for 10 years, they didn’t give me the profits and rent I should have earned. Oh well.)

Tried to participate in a live draft but yahoo seriously failed there. By the time I got in, my whole team was pretty much drafted.

Played some rockband 2 with chelsea and then watched a couple of jerichos. Really good acting. I’m sad it got canceled.

Not looking forward to last week of work…
