You are The Devil

Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession

The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.

Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

I got the pow!

Power was returned at 6pm last night (thurs) and there was much rejoicing at the Goonstead. I knew it would come on last night because I had two offers of a generator and I brought my clothes to the laundromat. Although, I think if I had the money I would bring my clothes to the laundromat every week...something about bringing them dirty clothes and getting nicely folded and clean clothes back that I really enjoy.

Irene is a pain in my ass but overall not too bad.

things that are meh
No power/internet at home...I filled my freezer with water bottles pre-storm so fridge still cold)
Lines out the door at every dunkin (even where there are 4+ within a mile)
Power but no phones/internet at work...currently tethered my work machine via my phone
Cold shower (lack of caffeine is negated by this refreshing treat) but hey I have water.

Annoying shit...
I can't get anywhere without having to circle the northern part of the state. It's only 10 miles but when you get 10mpg it adds up fast. Trees/power lines are blocking the south (easy exit) part of my road in at least 4 places. telephone poles snapped in at least 3 of those locations. Likely will be without power for at least a week. Maybe longer. Who knows how long w/o internet. Guess I will be using that kindle that I have been neglecting.

I am almost current with the tv show Supernatural.  I have really enjoyed the show, its funny, has enough action and I really like the characters.  I also have watched or I am watching and enjoyed, Warehouse 13, Eureka!, SG-1, TrueBlood, House, Lost (hated the ending), Heroes (season 1&2), and a few others I can't recall.  What do you suggest I add?  Plot and believablity (to me) can be offset by likeable characters (Eureka! for example).

cat learnin'

so...over the past two weeks I have learned quite a bit about satan cat and orange cat.

orange cat is happy to see you.
orange cat seems to only eat or drink freshly put out food and water
orange cat is a distraction

satan cat is "happy" to see you
satan cat will pretend to eat and drink until your back is turned then try to trip you
satan cat tries to trip you so that you will fall, break your back and be paralyzed from the waist down...your arms need to work so you can pet him but you can't walk away
satan cat waits until you are distracted by orange cat then head butts or bites you
satan cat likes to be pet
satan cat will head butt you if you dare stop petting him
satan cat's fur sticks to stubble and NEVER EVER comes off...it will turn into a cat hair beard.
satan cat thinks ears are tasty to chew on
satan cat is jealous...if you are petting orange cat he will get between you.
satan cat is happy with being pet unless you are petting orange cat too
satan cat will get between you and orange cat and then bite your fingers as punishment
satan cat purrs VERY loud while biting you (see ears comment)
satan cat will claw and grab at your hands/fingers if you are not petting him
satan cat will play chase...running from one room to another makes him chase you.
satan cat will not play fetch.  if you throw something he will look at it, then at you, then head butt you for your insinuation that he is a dog
satan cat is deviously "clumsy" and will fall/knock stuff over/rend and tear flesh and be like.."what? sorry bro that was an accident"

cats will not eat for 2-3 days then consume ever bit of kibble in 24 hours and when you come to check on them they will cry and whine as if to say "YOU LEFT US TO STARVE YOU BASTARD"

Dodging Death at Dave's Day 1

Sunday July 31, 2011

The sunny weather and warm air inspired me to ride my bike to Dave's to check on the spawn of satan and orange cat. It is only 3 miles so it took me about 15 minutes or so. When I arrived, grab the mail and head up. Inside I am greeted by orange cat, satan cat is not to be seen, however I have my guard up.  I greet orange cat with a scritch on the head and check on water and food.  As I am filling up the water bowl I hear the hoarse meow of satan cat and look towards the stairs...there he is peering at me from the corner of the stair.  I say hello and he saunters down the stairs meowing.  As I try to put the dish down he dances around where I am trying to place it....as I shoo him out of the way he jumps up onto the food bins and I am able to put the dish down...this of course leaves me open to satan cat...who decides to stand up and head butt me as I bend to put the dish down.

Cat 1 Mike 0

I recover quickly to this first strike and get out of reach for his second.  I laugh as he falls into the water dish...this was a bad thing to do.  The twirling dance of death starts as I try to walk towards the living room.  Orange cat jumps lazily up onto the coffee table and I reward her with a scritch on behind the ears.  This of course...was a mistake.  Satan cat was going in for another shot while my back was turned.  As his deceptively cut and fuzzy ears hit the back of my knee I jumped, startling him which caused one of his claws to latch onto my shorts...then through them into my leg.  There was yelling and meowing and satan cat took to the stairs.

Cat 2 Mike 0

I check my grievous wound and decide I will live.  I steal a diet coke from the fridge and sit down at the dining room table. I watch for satan cat and decide orange cat is being cute and needy looking so I put down my coke on the table and reach down to scratch her....which I see now has been her plan all along to make me vulnerable.  As I reach down to pet orange cat, satan cat jumps on the table and naturally hits my soda...which falls to the ground.  Oddly enough it lands perfectly flat on its base and doesn't spill.  I revel in my accidental victory against satan cat for a brief second, until the soda (which was mostly full) foams up and over flows the can.  I bend down to grab the can and proceed to wipe the soda up (I had a paper towel in hand because I was sweaty from bike ride) as I do so satan cat decides now is the perfect chance and walks off the table onto my back and head butts me at the base of my skull.  Luckly for me I have a thick skull.  I slowly stand up, thinking this will persuade satan cat to jump off.  Not so much.  I don't think my back is bleeding...but it was stingy.

Cat 3 Mike 0

I survived...but it is only day 1.

gods help me.

this about sums it up...

There's a reason for this, there's a reason education sucks, and it's the same reason it will never ever ever be fixed. It's never going to get any better. Don't look for it. Be happy with what you've got... because the owners of this country don’t want that. I'm talking about the real owners now... the real owners. The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. That’s right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fuckin’ years ago. They don’t want that. You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your fuckin' retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you sooner or later 'cause they own this fuckin' place. It’s a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in the big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good, honest, hard-working people: white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good, honest, hard-working people continue — these are people of modest means — continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck about them. They don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t care about you at all! At all! At all! And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes every day, because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream, 'cause you have to be asleep to believe it.
