anything is possible… so be careful

fat dude hot chick at the poolbecause the Lord is amazing and created a world so large that pretty much anything can happen, the bad news is

anything can happen.

good things, bad things, horrible things, magical things.

one of the least talked about of the ten commandments is the tenth one: do not covet yr neighbor’s ish.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

it’s hard at times because you might see your buddy’s new car or his huge backyard or his hot wife (or mistress)… or his life

and you might say to yourself: oh hell yeah! want!

but how many times have you wanted something and like neil young realized it was a piece of crap?

if youre anything like me the answer is lots of times.

and while it’s true that one mans trash is another mans treasure– seriously how often does that happen.

usually what happens is one mans treasure is another man’s (foolish) desire to gank steal and ruin, and thats just unfortunate.

for example i drive an xbi mobile that people seem to love. they love it more than i do for sure.

despite the fact that ive had some good times in it, it’s really amazing that anything could have happened there.

in fact the entire thing is impractical and id be shocked if it’s in my possession by the world series.

likewise ive dated some amazing women. and ive had buddies say to me mama mia whats it like.

and usually i say it’s probably exactly what it was when you dated: sometimes it’s miserable and sometimes it’s omg

but theres a reason the alcohol business will never go out of business.

Buddah’s second noble truth says that all suffering is rooted in desire.

and because the first noble truth is that suffering is unavoidable, i think the bible is telling us to choose carefully as to what we desire.

often it tells us to forget about things of this world. like hot babes, fast cars, and probably anything you could get at best buy.

when we desire less selfish things and put ourselves in positions to omg help our neighbors instead of wanting to pork their concubines

far less evil transpires in achieving those hopes and wishes.

now take on the day.

ive noticed a trend in certain women


i will call these ladies balancers.

they think they can just set their beverages on the most unusual surfaces

beds, couches, knees, dashboards, edges, cliffs,

spinning basketballs

seal noses.

which would be fine, but often theres something of great value next to the doomed drink.

like an original manuscript

or an iphone

or a relatively new MacBook Pro.

its almost as if they have zero disregard for not just gravity

but the highest form of computerized technology.

do you know what sort of computer $1,500 bought you just ten years ago?

todays ipods have larger hard drives and more ram than the fifteen hundred dollar macs of 2002.

and boo is about to spill her caramel macchiato on it.

because shes a balancer.

what if that mac was my first born?

thats usually what i think.

what if.

sometimes theres nothing you can do

sometimes the pretty girl wants to join the dark side.

they may think its cute or sexy or interesting or wild

but you and everyone of their friends are all wtf

why is she doing that?

and you may ask her, and she’ll say

what else am i supposed to do?

which is interesting because when i look though the areas of my life that i have struggled with over the last few years

my laziest excuse has always been

what else am i supposed to do?

knowing all along that the simple answer has always been

the opposite of what youre doing now


people dont want to change.

not even the sweetest most lovably talented angels in your life.

the dark side and mediocrity and safety in slow and steady misery is sexy for some and theres nothing at all that you i can do about it.

id become a smoker but thats darkside too.
