Something’s wrong, and mini update.

I’m going to be only occasionally dropping by this blog until February. Got real writing to do. Mostly contest sort of stuff, but I’m excited about it even if none of my stuff wins.

Sometimes writings just come out without having a place to call home, so in those cases I’ll bring them here. There also might be times like tonight when I write 2 things for one category and decide to enter the “less normal” one into the contest, so you all get to preview the runner up.


Something’s Wrong

You asked me if something is wrong.
It is, but we’ll be alright.
Sometimes everything is perfect.
Other times I remember.

Having fun with you.
Making love to you.
Being one with you.

If I wasn’t who I am…
If you weren’t who you are…
If life hadn’t sucker-punched us
And helped make us the monsters we’ve become…

I cry for what we could have had.
For what will never be.
I miss us.


Now, I know that no one who reads this blog would ever use any type of drug, illegal or not, but hypothetically speaking, what is your favorite, and why?

There is this show on about ecstasy. I’m listening to it while I do boring paperwork crap, and it is mentioning the “loving” effects of it, and how it is believed to increase empathy in people.

In my hypothetical drug past, ecstasy was a one time, and quite enjoyable adventure. Kind of like shrooms (not the type of high, just the fun factor) but x doesn’t taste like shit.

Now, remember drugs can be dangerous and deadly, so please don’t think I’m promoting drug use. I’m just wanting to avoid papers, and curious about people’s hypothetical experiences.

Anyway, I guess I should get back to paperwork. Oh yeah, I need some dance moves that I can do in my wheelchair while riding down the road. Might as well give people something to stare at and maybe bring a smile to some faces. I’ve always stunk at dancing, so any ideas are appreciated.

Hobbling around the issues: legalizing marijuana

Before I break out any very controversial issues, here is a kind of mild one…should pot be legal?

You may not know this (or you may have already guessed based on some of my other posts), but when I was a teenager I smoked marijuana (insert oo’s and ah’s here).

Although I don’t smoke anything now, I probably could get it prescribed if I was in a “legal” state because of my medical condition…Multiple Sclerosis. Honestly, at this point in my life, I doubt that I would want to use it, but the real issue is: Should it be legal?

My short answer is yes.

I believe that the prohibition of marijuana is similar to the prohibition of alcohol long ago. If it were legal, not only could we tax it and reap some of the benefits, our prison would not be quite as crowded with people who’s only conviction is marijuana use. I think that by legalizing it we could also set some safety standards for it. Also, the police would not have to devote as much time and effort into chasing this type of drug dealer down.

There are many different opinions about this issue. Here is a web link offering some of the pros and cons:

So, what do you think?
