Sparky: Even More to Ponder — It's critical that even though it looks as if the Red state zombies are giving up we vote the GOP bastards out even if the Diebold Election Systems's polling machines are rigged ...

Chris Durang: You Must Watch "Hacking Democracy"

Please watch the documentary Hacking Democracy on HBO. I just watched it, it was first on two days ago, but I missed it then. It tells the story ... read more

Case in point: DES claims its systems provide strong immunity to ballot tampering and other vote rigging attempts. These claims have been challenged, notably by Bev Harris on her website,, and book by the same name. Harris and C. D. Sludge, an Internet journalist, both claim there is also evidence that the Diebold systems have been exploited to tamper with American elections — a claim Harris expands in her book Black Box Voting.Votewatch for evidence that suggests a pattern of compromised voting machine exploits throughout the 1990s, and specifically involving the Diebold machines in the 2002 election. DES has also come under fire for the recent discovery that the Diebold voting machines do not and did not in 2004 meet the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) error standard. Sludge further cites

The controversy regarding electronic voting machines is related to a larger debate concerning the relative merits of open source and proprietary security products. Advocates of the open source model say that systems are more secure when anyone can view the underlying software code, identify bugs and make peer-reviewed changes. Advocates of proprietary systems claim that so-called black box systems are more secure because potential weaknesses are hidden.

Avi Rubin, Professor of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University and Technical Director of the Information Security Institute has analyzed the source code used in these voting machines and reports "this voting system is far below even the most minimal security standards applicable in other contexts." [5] Following the publication of this paper, the State of Maryland hired Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) to perform another analysis of the Diebold voting machines. SAIC concluded “[t]he system, as implemented in policy, procedure, and technology, is at high risk of compromise.” [6]

In June 2005, the Tallahassee Democrat reported that when given access to Diebold vote-counting computers, Bev Harris- a critic of Diebold's voting machines - was able to make 65,000 votes disappear simply by changing the memory card that stores voting results for one that had been altered. Although the machines are supposed to record changes to data stored in the system, they showed no record of tampering after the memory cards were swapped. In response, a spokesperson for the Department of State said that, "Information on a blog site is not viable or credible." [7]

In early 2006 the Diebold Election Systems subsidiary came under considerable fire from alternate media sources for creating voting systems without reasonable auditing, no paper trail, security holes, and software bugs. The attention negatively affected Diebold stock (though elections are only a small part of their business) and triggered investigations in several states after insiders revealed irregular practices in Diebold's election division. Diebold was the first major vendor to experience a serious backlash from poor quality, service and preparation in the election industry, and condemnation of Diebold helped to focus attention on other vendors (ES&S). According to Avi Rubin, the Johns Hopkins University computer science professor who first identified flaws in the technology in 2003, the machines are "much, much easier to attack than anything we've previously said... On a scale of one to 10, if the problems we found before were a six, this is a 10. It's a totally different ballgame." According to Rubin, the system is intentionally designed so that anyone with access can update the machine software, without a pass code or other security protocol. Diebold officials said that although any problem can be avoided by keeping a close watch on the machines, they are developing a fix. [2] Michael I. Shamos, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University who is a proponent of electronic voting and the examiner of electronic voting systems for Pennsylvania, stated "It's the most severe security flaw ever discovered in a voting system." Douglas W. Jones, a professor of computer science at the University of Iowa, stated "This is the barn door being wide open, while people were arguing over the lock on the front door." Diebold spokesman David Bear decried the seriousness of the situation, asserting that "For there to be a problem here, you're basically assuming a premise where you have some evil and nefarious election officials who would sneak in and introduce a piece of software. I don't believe these evil elections people exist."[3]

On 31 July 2006 the Open Voting Foundation released a press release which explains, with photographs, how to open the case with a screwdriver and alter the boot configuration of the Diebold TS so as to boot from EPROM, on-board flash memory or external flash memory. The implication is that a previously tested and certified machine could be booted using an unauthorised boot profile, and that such a boot profile could be activated with relatively little technical expertise. [4]

On November 2, 2006, HBO premiered a documentary entitled "Hacking Democracy", concerning the vulnerability of electronic voting machines (primarily Diebold) to hacking and inaccurate vote totals. The company attempted to block the documentary prior to its broadcast, but was ultimately unsuccessful.

David Goldstein: Who's to blame for Pastor Haggard's fall from grace? His fat, lazy wife

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Colorado Springs' New Life Church just announced that it has fired Pastor Ted Haggard for his "sexually immoral conduct." The much publicized meth and gay hooker scandal has elicited a little bit of soul searching and a lot hemming and hawing from Haggard's fellow Evangelical leaders, but perhaps the most ridiculous response came yesterday from Pastor Mark Driscoll of Seattle's Mars Hills mega-church-wannabe.

Writing in his personal blog, Driscoll offers his fellow pastors "some practical suggestions" on how to avoid the type of temptation that consumed Pastor Haggard. And near the top of his list?
"Most pastors I know do not have satisfying, free, sexual conversations and liberties with their wives. At the risk of being even more widely despised than I currently am, I will lean over the plate and take one for the team on this. It is not uncommon to meet pastors' wives who really let themselves go; they sometimes feel that because their husband is a pastor, he is therefore trapped into fidelity, which gives them cause for laziness. A wife who lets herself go and is not sexually available to her husband in the ways that the Song of Songs is so frank about is not responsible for her husband's sin, but she may not be helping him either."

Uh-huh. Leave it to a fundamentalist Evangelical preacher to have such a profound understanding of human sexuality. Or as the inimitable sex columnist Dan Savage so aptly put it:

"I'm sure Ted Haggard is saying something along these lines to his wife right now: 'Oh, honey... I wouldn't have been having those meth-fueled ass-banging sessions with that gay hooker if you hadn't have let yourself go like that!' "

Of course, using Pastor Driscoll's line of reasoning one would suppose about two-thirds of married, middle-aged Americans -- men and women alike -- to be meth-addicted homosexuals. Hmm. I haven't looked at the statistics recently, but that figure strikes me as just a tad high... at least, outside of Colorado Springs.

But scroll further down Pastor Driscoll's list and you'll find some more useful suggestions on how to avoid temptation. Like a pastor should never travel alone, or freely give out his cell phone number, or hang out at places where he might come in contact with "lonely people"... you know... like at his own church. Pastor Driscoll also advises against keeping "a secondary email account from which to build a secret identity." Personally, it never occurred to me to create a secret identity, but I suppose the prospect must have some appeal to joyless, rigidly moral, puritanical hypocrites like Pastor Driscoll and his colleagues.

But mostly what I've learned from Pastor Driscoll's sage advice is that becoming a pastor is a great way to meet women. (And men, I guess.) Apparently, the ladies think pastors are hot:

"I have, however, seen some very overt opportunities for sin. On one occasion I actually had a young woman put a note into my shirt pocket while I was serving communion with my wife, asking me to have dinner, a massage, and sex with her. On another occasion a young woman emailed me a photo of herself topless and wanted to know if I liked her body. Thankfully, that email was intercepted by an assistant and never got to me."

Pastor Driscoll has been "blessed with a trustworthy heterosexual male assistant," and I'm sure he was equally thankful to intercept that scandalous email. Praise the Lord.

Wow. Mega-church preachers are like rock stars -- there's sexual temptation lying behind every pew. With office perks like that, even a secular Jew like myself might consider becoming an Evangelical preacher, except, unlike Pastor Driscoll, I'm not into all that kinky stuff:

"How can we proclaim that we are new creations in Christ if we continually return to lap up the vomit of our old way of life?"


If I ever find myself alone in a room with Pastor Driscoll, remind me to stay off the meth.

BREAKING NEWS: Pastor Ted Fired

The following is a letter sent out today by New Life Church:

Dear New Lifers and friends of New Life Church,
This is the press release from the Board of Overseers that will be released to the media this afternoon. We want you to know first what the actions of the overseers are going to be.
Please continue to pray for Pastor Ted and his family and let's all continue to stand strong together for the kingdom of God. We will get through this together. Remember, New Life Church has never been a man, or a building or anything else--we are a family.
Pastor Ross (Parsley)
November 4, 2006
New Life Church
Colorado Springs, Colorado

We, the Overseer Board of New Life Church, have concluded our deliberations concerning the moral failings of Pastor Ted Haggard. Our investigation and Pastor Haggard's public statements have proven without a doubt that he has committed sexually immoral conduct.

The language of our church bylaws state that as Overseers we must decide in cases where the Senior Pastor has "demonstrated immoral conduct" whether we must "remove the pastor from his position or to discipline him in any way they deem necessary."

In consultation with leading evangelicals and experts familiar with the type of behavior Pastor Haggard has demonstrated, we have decided that the most positive and productive direction for our church is his dismissal and removal. In addition, the Overseers will continue to explore the depth of Pastor Haggard's offense so that a plan of healing and restoration can begin.

Pastor Haggard and his wife have been informed of this decision. They have agreed as well that he should be dismissed and that a new pastor for New Life Church should be selected according to the rules of replacement in the bylaws.

That process will begin immediately in hopes that a new pastor can be confirmed by the end of the year 2006. In the interim, Ross Parsley will function as the leader of the church with full support of the Overseers.

A letter of explanation and apology by Pastor Haggard as well as a word of encouragement from Gayle Haggard will be read in the 9:00 and 11:00 service of New Life Church.

NYT: Adam Nagourney and Robin Toner: Outlook Grim for GOP ...



From The New York Times:

Joe Gaylord, who was the political lieutenant to Newt Gingrich when he led the Republican takeover of the House in 1994, said that based on polling he had seen in recent weeks, he expected his party to lose 25 to 30 seats on Tuesday. That general assessment was repeatedly echoed in interviews with Republicans close to the White House.

"It's very grim," Mr. Gaylord said. "Things are dreadful out there."

Israeli attacks in Gaza kill 17

November 4, 2006

Three Hamas terrorists, including Luaye al-Burnu, a local official in the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, were among over 17 dead as a result of Israeli assaults in Gaza. Two women were gunned down by Israeli soldiers who opened fire on a crowd that had formed in front of a mosque in which the Hamas men had taken refuge. Hamas leader Ismail Haniya praised the women, but the Israelis said they had served as "human shields" for the resistance militia. Palestinian officials have termed the Israeli attacks "massacres".

The incident occured when the local womenfolk were asked, on radio, to intervene in the tense standoff between the Israeli troops and about 15 Hamas fighters in the mosque. One lady, Nahed Abou Harbiya, told the BBC Arabic Service that the men were given womens' clothes so that they could escape.

"All the women headed to the mosque to get the Palestinian resistance men... But the Israeli occupation forces were firing heavily at us with their machine guns and also threw stun grenades at us. "We entered the mosque and indeed we got all the resistance men out and put female attire on them so that the Israeli occupation forces wouldn't arrest them," she said.

The firing began as the women approached the Israeli gunmen, injuring 10 people, including one Palestinian camerman. Hamas radio reported that all 15 men had escaped safely.

Palestinian doctors confirmed that seven people died as a result of Israeli air raids in Beit Hanoun. A spokesman for Israel's military stated that five towns-Beit Hanoun, Beit Lahiya, Jabaliya and Rafah had been targetted. An Israeli official claimed that the attacks were aimed at "suspected Palestinian militants who were planting explosives or who had carried out rocket attacks."

A Hamas official said that the "militants had been involved in manufacturing rockets that were to be fired at Israel." About 30 people, including some gunmen and a four-year-old child have been killed by Israeli attacks in Beit Hanoun. Israeli human rights group B'Tselem says over 300 Palestinians have been killed by attacks carried out by Israel following the capture of Corporal Gilad Shalit on 25 June this year.

Sparky: Some Stuff To Ponder

N Korea says Japan should not take part in 6-way talks as it is just 'a state of U.S.'

TOKYO — North Korea said Saturday that Japan should not participate in upcoming six-way talks on the North's nuclear program, while criticizing Japanese leaders for their refusal to accept Pyongyang as a nuclear power.
The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
"It would be much better for Japan to refrain from participating in the six-party talks and less attendants would be not bad for making the talks fruitful," North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency reported, quoting a spokesman for the North Korean Foreign Ministry. "It is the view of the DPRK that since the U.S. attends the six-party talks, there is no need for Japan to participate in them as a local delegate because it is no more than a state of the U.S. and it is enough for Tokyo just to be informed of the results of the talks by Washington."

Aside: The New York Times reports that a website created at the request of United States Representative Peter Hoekstra and Senator Pat Roberts was found to contain detailed information which could help nuclear-capable states produce nuclear weapons. The website was shut down on November 2 following questioning by The New York Times and protests by International Atomic Energy Agency officials. (The New York Times)

HuffPo's Mark Kleiman: Beyond Kafka

Can you imagine a government so absurdly tyrannical, so brutally insane, that it forbids "enemies of the state" to complain about being tortured on the grounds that interrogation techniques are state secrets?

Well, you don't have to imagine it. There is such a government.
As the Washington Post's Carol D. Leonnig and Eric Rich reported:
The Bush administration has told a federal judge that terrorism suspects held in secret CIA prisons should not be allowed to reveal details of the "alternative interrogation methods" that their captors used to get them to talk.

The government says in new court filings that those interrogation methods are now among the nation's most sensitive national security secrets and that their release -- even to the detainees' own attorneys -- "could reasonably be expected to cause extremely grave damage." Terrorists could use the information to train in counter-interrogation techniques and foil government efforts to elicit information about their methods and plots, according to government documents submitted to U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton on Oct. 26.

The battle over legal rights for terrorism suspects detained for years in CIA prisons centers on Majid Khan, a 26-year-old former Catonsville resident who was one of 14 high-value detainees transferred in September from the "black" sites to the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. A lawyer with the Center for Constitutional Rights, which represents many detainees at Guantanamo, is seeking emergency access to him.

The government, in trying to block lawyers' access to the 14 detainees, effectively asserts that the detainees' experiences are a secret that should never be shared with the public.

Because Khan "was detained by CIA in this program, he may have come into possession of information, including locations of detention, conditions of detention, and alternative interrogation techniques that is classified at the TOP SECRET//SCI level," an affidavit from CIA Information Review Officer Marilyn A. Dorn states, using the acronym for "sensitive compartmented information."

Gitanjali Gutierrez, an attorney for Khan's family, responded in a court document yesterday that there is no evidence that Khan had top-secret information. "Rather," she said, "the executive is attempting to misuse its classification authority . . . to conceal illegal or embarrassing executive conduct."

Don't you wonder what the fuck the Bush II Junta's Puppet Boy King "W" and Ted Haggard talked about once or more a week? My gut instinct is 'hot gay talk' went down ... Has to beat Cheney and "Rummy" talking about 'killing' stuff ...

HuffPo's Paul Loeb: Is there meth in Ted Haggert's heaven?

Is there meth in Ted Haggert's heaven? Does it rot your teeth? In his 2005 Barbara Walters interview, Haggert says you can eat all the food you want in heaven and never gain weight. Can you shoot all the meth you want and never lose your teeth? What about unprotected sex with gay prostitutes?

Do you get divine protection against AIDS? Or only if you swear in public that gays are the cause of American family breakdowns.

I wonder what it will take for the good people in the pews tol call leaders like Haggert to account for their mean-spirited hypocrisy. And maybe even to approach the world with more forgiveness and less harsh judgment. I hope they won't just move on to some other similarly charismatic and seductive preacher, who works out his own demons and flaws on whoever he chooses to demonize.

AP's Catherine Tsai reports Evangelical Leader Says He Bought Drugs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - The Rev. Ted Haggard said Friday he bought methamphetamine and received a massage from a male prostitute. But the influential Christian evangelist insisted he threw the drugs away and never had sex with the man.

Haggard, who as president of the National Association of Evangelicals wielded influence on Capitol Hill and condemned both gay marriage and homosexuality, resigned on Thursday after a Denver man named Mike Jones claimed that he had many drug-fueled trysts with Haggard.

On Friday, Haggard said that he received a massage from Jones after being referred to him by a Denver hotel, and that he bought meth for himself from the man.

But Haggard said he never had sex with Jones. And as for the drugs, "I was tempted, but I never used it," the 50-year-old Haggard told reporters from his vehicle while leaving his home with his wife and three of his five children.

Jones, 49, denied selling meth to Haggard. "Never," he told MSNBC. Haggard "met someone else that I had hooked him up with to buy it."

Jones also scoffed at the idea that a hotel would have sent Haggard to him.

"No concierge in Denver would have referred me," he said. He said he had advertised himself as an escort only in gay publications or on gay Web sites.

Jones did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press on Friday.

In addition to resigning his post at the NAE, which claims 30 million members, Haggard stepped aside as leader of his 14,000-member New Life Church pending a church investigation. In a TV interview this week, he said: "Never had a gay relationship with anybody, and I'm steady with my wife, I'm faithful to my wife."

In Denver, where Jones said his encounters with Haggard took place, police said in a news release they planned to contact the people involved for information on whether a crime was committed. The statement did not say whether an investigation was under way, and police spokeswoman Virginia Quinones declined to elaborate.

Lynn Kimbrough, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office, said that a public admission isn't enough by itself to bring a case, but that charges will be filed if criminal conduct can be proved.

Jones claims Haggard paid him for sex nearly every month for three years until August. He said Haggard identified himself as "Art." Jones said that he learned who Haggard really was when he saw the evangelical leader on television.

Jones said he went public with the allegations because Haggard has supported a measure on Tuesday's ballot that would amend the state constitution to ban gay marriage. Jones said he was also angry that Haggard in public condemned gay sex.

Haggard, who had been president of the NAE since 2003, has participated in conservative Christian leaders' conference calls with White House staffers and lobbied members of Congress last year on U.S. Supreme Court nominees.

The NAE's executive committee issued a statement Friday praising Haggard's service but saying "it is especially serious when a pastor and prominent Christian leader deliberately violates God's standards of conduct."

The statement did not mention the allegations against Haggard beyond noting he had admitted to "some indiscretions."

"Due to the seriousness of Rev. Haggard's misconduct while in the leadership roles he held, we anticipate that an extended period of recovery will be appropriate," the statement said.

White House Deputy Press Secretary Tony Fratto said Friday that Haggard had visited the White House once or twice and participated in some of the conference calls. He declined to comment further, calling the matter a personal issue for Haggard.

Corwin Smidt, a political scientist at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich., and director of the Institute for the Study of Christianity and Politics there, said that Haggard's role with the association gave him some political clout, but that the group's focus is more on religion than political activism.

"It isn't necessarily that all evangelicals are paying close attention to what he's saying and doing, but he is an important leader," Smidt said.

James Dobson, head of Focus on the Family, an influential conservative Christian ministry based in Colorado Springs, said he was "heartsick" over the allegations. He described Haggard as his close friend and colleague.
Aaron Stern, another pastor at New Life, told Associated Press Television News on Friday that Haggard is a man of integrity and that church members don't know whether to believe the allegations.

Stern said he has been telling church members seeking his advice: "People do things we don't expect them to do, but in the midst of all of that our God is faithful, our God is strong."

Jones took a lie-detector test Friday, and his answers to questions about whether he had sexual contact with Haggard "indicated deception," said John Kresnick, who administered the test free at the request of a Denver radio station.

Jones told reporters afterward: "I am confused why I failed that, other than the fact that I'm totally exhausted."

For the record: On February 14, 2006, "Duck Hunt" the game was again used as "digital simulation" of Vice President Dick Cheney's accidental shooting of Harry Whittington on both Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann. See Dick Cheney hunting incident.

Hate the haters - vote them out of office. Get their Churches the fuck out of our government. Time to break the Diebold voting machines that allow these scum to cheat into office.

FASTER THAN A SOAP OPERA SLURPEE! Yet another balls to the wall chapter in the Cary Coatney & Rikki Lixxx saga!

Originally presented on the website on Thursday, July 06, 2006


Current mood: jubilant

I lost the stupid lottery. I only had the bonus number last night. $ 110,000.00 million buckeroos went to some lucky schmuck in Pasadena- a town not too far from where I live.
Damn shame. I had big plans for that money. I wanted to get my publishing company back on track, I wanted to buy more keyboards, and I wanted to buy Lixi her own special house.

The title to this entry has a whole multitude of meanings behind it. It can apply to all things that went on this last 5 day "weekend" , which I could view as a fucking sham or it can apply to all things that pertain to My Space in general.

Let me start off that I really appreciate those who support me on here and those who've welcomed me here with open arms. Comments on the hat really make my day. I consider my stastics to be staggering! Out of not even 300 views on my profile - I've gotten close to 160 friends so far this past month (now the PP Guru is up to 675) . I.m more of a attention whore here than on my own blog - which is where I get into character as ' a bumbling moron and a jerk' as applied to all things media driven - which can range from anywhere to movie reviews, tv shows, politics, to nasty sexual overtone innuendos that are directed towards actresses in very suggestive attire. (That's www.purplepinupguru/ for those who have much too time to spend in cyberville.

However, it's not my intention to be a jerk on this forum. And I must apologize to a certain nineteen year old out of Holland who may have taken one of my comments out of context. I was just trying to be a wit with a tongue in cheek comment and I guess she may have taken it out of context and thereby deleted me as 'her friend' and I'm really awfully sorry about that. So I guess I going to have to up my age criteria of friends up to 21 and over and not eighteen. Because some eighteen and nineteen years are just too sensitive and it makes me look like a an old perverted fart to be even conversing with those in that age range.

Also, last Friday I got pelted by those posing as fashion models and after adding them I went to check their profiles and sure enough I find that they're all links to porn sites. Which doesn't suit right with me. I mean, I'm already sort of in a relationship with a porn star - so why would I have the desire or the need to even look at that stuff anymore? So there are some I noticed in my roster, that could use some jettisoning. I haven't made up my mind of pressing the reset button on them, but If I see a bulletin posted one more time advertising their webcam again- I'm going to go all freaking 'medieval' on them.

Well, this weekend- all sort of goodies happened. To make one thing abundantly clear: I was not happy losing money for two days straight because of the Fourth of July holiday. I don't see the fucking logic of why this country insisted on having most businesses shut down for a four or five day weekend. I could've came in to work on a Monday and took Tuesday off - that wouldn't have been a problem. I was also told to go home early on Friday. So to tally up: I lost a total of 19 hours these past few days. If I'm getting $120.00 a day at work (I make $15.00 an hour for Paramount) that' s nearly two and half days of work I missed. That's nearly $300.00 that I was forced to eat down the shitter.

I've got fucking bills to pay. Plus a porn star to support.


Well, at least Bryan Singer's heart was in the right place- and I've told people this: if anyone's looking for the sequel to LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST - you have to look no further than here. I mean, c'mon it's got JESUS CHRIST SUPERMAN written all over it. It's got the words LAZARUS RISING OVERKILL stamped right near the MPAA rating. I found that there was a lot to like to about it (well, being a fan of Superman and all) and that there was a lot to dislike about it. The effects are up to par to Spider-man at least in CGI terms. But Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane- no thank you. Kevin Spacey was ok as Luthor.

But the whole Jesus Christ Messiah complex really started to bothered me. I don't want to blow it for those who haven't seen it ( I'm not a spoiler warning towncryer) but it mainly has to do with how transparent the ending is and I don't think Singer is fully aware of how the religious nutcases are going to react to it.

Hope they don't catch on.

Son of Superman? Please, that shit just doesn't fly with me.

I spent some time at the beach up in Malibu with my surrogate sister where I witnessed a spectacular sight of dolphins swimming off-shore. There's nothing more serene than seeing that happen. Haven't seen live dolphins in the their habitat since I've lived down on the beaches of North San Diego fifteen years back. Unfortunely, both my surrogate sister Rebecca and her two ex-husbands Albie and Mark got into a heated argument in the middle of the parking lot that made us all look like hair ball whooping pieces of white trash and right in front of my nieces too Tried to stay out of it as best as I could- but I was pretty embarassed to be in the same company that day with them that I was longing to be back home with my neighbor ex-porn star gal pal - Lixi that day.

Lixi and I spent a lot of time together - so I guess being off from work for five days straight wasn't completely bad. We had plenty of moments of pure unadulterated comedy.For example: I was helping her sort stuff in the garage for another possible garage sale before Beck was going to pick me up for the beach and after we were through, she had shut the garage door behind her and not realizing with a cup of cold Starbucks coffee in her hand, she tripped backward onto a parking stump that my roommate uses to park his car. She caught herself from falling, but failed to prevent the coffee to making a mess of her shirt. Yeah, I thought it was funny - but not when she turned around and threw the rest of the contents of her cup at me. I was soaked and smelling like Mocha from head to toe. I asked her why the hell did you do that for? She replies - 'well, I wanted you to know how cold coffee feels being spilt on you '.

You see, Lixi just loves to share.

We also got to drag out a Whammo Slip and Slide for my niece's benefit- except Olivia didn't want anything to do with the goddamn thing once we set it up for her after she begged all goddamn day for Lixi to get it out of her garage. It could've been that it was hard to get Lixi to wake up from her midday nap and I didn't want to go in her garage without her permission - but Lixi was cool with the idea; but the drawback being - I couldn't get the damn thing set up while there was still daylight left to say. I tried blowing up the cushions and Lixi came outside and said 'why don't you use my goddamn air pump you stupid DING DONG?' So once we set it up, Olivia complained that the water was too cold. Lixi snuck up behind and pushed me on the slip and slide and I could've nearly broken my nose - but it was funnier to see to see Lixi- a chick with triple D's go following after me.

It was a sight to behold. I wish I had had a camera to capture it for prosperity.

On the evening of July fourth - Lixi and I did Tequila shots together at our pool. I practically spent the whole day with her, actually - which was something I have not done in a long time. And I sort of reliterated some of the stuff I've secretly said on this blog to her - and damn, if it didn't come out sounding too cliched. She wasn't really buying into my sincerity, and I know I've still got to grovel still a little bit more for her complete trust. She says she still doesn't love me completely as much as I do to her. And I guess, for the present, that's as good as it's going to get.
But otherwise, we're a A-OK. She's started to dip into my DVD collection again- which is a good sign of pressing the reset button. (but boy, did she berate me for loaning her FROM HELL - she went on a whole murdering prostitutes rant, saying that was the main reason why I lent her that one- but I totally forgot that I don't think of her in that capacity and I had it in my collection because it was based on a graphic novel that I own. She wouldn't have any of it and told me to get rid of it.)

Next week - The origins of what drove us apart at the start of the new year; as best as I can chronicle it.
