“The great epochs of our life come when we gain the courage to rechristen our evil as
what is best in us.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche, 19th century German philosopher
Today is April 28, 2004.
I wonder what George Bush would have to say about this quote?
Hi folks, its just me your mad monkey sex kitten, all tarted up for you after a hard day in
the salt mines.
I am sitting here, in my paint-crusted clothing
After a marathon of clothes folding, dinner making, children washing, kitchen cleaning,
evening of fun with the boyz. What more could a gyrl ask for?
Well let’s not go down that road tonight…I have to tell you, I have been looking forward to
getting a moment to write today, but I don’t have a clue as to why.
I dimly remember something this morning at 7:00ish (thanks honey!) through the fog of
coffee and breakfast, forgotten homework, MIA shoes and lost library books.
I can’t for the life of me remember what it was now.
I had this quote picked out though, and I guess
I have been working on re-birthing myself…I wouldn’t call it a christening.
I have been baptized and christened by several of your more popular religions and this
This is not something I think about every once in awhile, I’m forcing myself to live it, every
freaking second of it baby.
I’m might be a little tense and tired…I don’t know what do you think?
Today was good; I accomplished tons of stuff, but not all of it.
Well, I got to have enough for tomorrow.
Idle hands…you know the rest.
Pig and a Poke, I have been craving a cigarette for the last three days.
I have been quit of the tasty brown leaf for 9 months. I even managed to loose weight
while doing it.
It still sucks to be a non-smoker, sometimes.
Most of the time it rocks, and I don’t have to stink or die.
(Yet) Well, isn’t that something…huh?
I don’t think re-christening my evil is a good idea.
I mean as far as a human insight, I’m clearly not getting it.
My evil? I mean really, who wants to see that again?
I am from the (well known for it’s intellectual giants) city of Seffner.
Where all your dreams do come true.
I may be pushing my limit here on the humor…slow down gyrl pace yourself.
Ahem!…I am not too tired to be serious here, I understand that if we can take a real hard
look, into the dusty back corners, and change what lives there for the better, well…then
you get a spiritual get out of jail card…and you get to move it on up, to the next level.
I can hang with that.
What I am thinking is… That’s what I am doing, by living in the moment…just trying to
change the dusty, smelly parts of me as they surface.
Instead of going and poking around, lifting up booby-trapped doors and looking under
When I am presented with an ”educational moment” in my life,
the opportunity to grow, let’s call it, well then, I take it.
Even when it sucks, even when it’s inconvenient, even when I want to run away and
escape, I just stand still.
I let it happen, I try to manage to destruction (if there is any) or chaos with clarity.
What the hell, I don’t want to do that, I want to get plastered and get laid and forget all
But that wouldn’t get me anywhere (well maybe somewhere:) now would it.
I have done that, and it didn’t work either.
This method seems to be working pretty well for me.
I like looking at the masters of our species (philosophically speaking of course…back
away from the whip…) and trying to understand their gifts of theory and wisdom in my very
modern, godless, world. I get it.
So, tell me…excite a socially starving grrl, what Evil do you need to re-christen?
I propose a toast!
Here’s to the next Great Epoch of our lives!
Just Today, Just Imagine.
