2. John Denver's Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
3. No Doubt's Oi to the World.

The Invitation

The Invitation

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon...
I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,

It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like the company you keep
in the empty moments.

My Pride Day

Today my father in law went to mass.

He hasn't been to a catholic mass in over five years. But suffice it to say that he's been having some distressing health issues and went to mass today for some comfort.

Today of all days... Today's sermon was all about Gay Pride Day. How they should hate the sin and not the sinner...

In the middle of the sermon, while the priest was speaking. Johnny and Mary got up and walked out.

And took the slowest and longest way out of the building.

Then they called Mark and I and told us about it.

I was at first very moved by how much Johnny and Mary love Mark and I. I felt wonderfully proud and acknowledged.

But then I thought about it. And I'm sad. I'm sad that my father in law went somewhere for comfort and support. Looking for hope. And instead he found himself attacked and having to defend his son.

How can an organization hate how I live my life so bad?

this was from the 2004 finale of the "Boy from Oz."

Funny I would have thought it would have been Matt giving the lap dance and not the other way around.

cute guys and portals to other dimensions...

i'm told that this is from a series of movies called "the brotherhood." it fits in the genre of horribly acted homoerotic horror.

the magic of downloading music

i'm looking for christmas music to play... so i'm downloading a bunch of xmas music and i discover:

John Denver - Please daddy, Don't get drunk this Christmas.
John Prine - Christmas in Prison

don't feel like dancin', dancin'

For all you twisted scissor sisters.

"But I don’t feel like dancin’
When the old Joanna plays"

Old Joanna is cockney rhyming slang for piano... ("pian-ah")

Happy Birthday to Dad

So it was my dad's birthday on tuesday and we made arrangements to go out for dinner.

I have so much to say about how much I learned about myself in the two hours I was with him... I learned that I spent too much time trying to avoid him, his eyes and the offhanded remarks and what made him so frustrated and hard to be with was the sheer fact that I was shutting him out for so long.

We ate and chatted, mostly about my job, his job and my new car and silly anecdotes... All the stuff that I used to claim were nonsense and superficial to who I am... But I loved just hanging out hearing what's going on in his life and how he thinks... he's the one who told me about the CanOLA business... that's so odd.

Anyhow, this rambling blog is just because I had a really magical time eating chinese buffet in the suburbs with my dad on a thursday night.

Did anyone know that Canola is a contraction for CANadian Oil Less Acid? and it's actually a genetically modified rapeseed oil?

funny word

1. ebonic pentameter

A general term for [rap] lyrics. From [Ebonics] and Iambic Pentameter, the style that Shakespeare wrote in.

1. ebonic plague

The growing acceptability of having absolutely no education at all

There seems to be an outbreak of the ebonic plague in here. I can't understand a damn word these idiots are babbling

no fair

Canada never gets the good stuff first.

Sony's just released the UX series ultraportable handheld in the US. A 1.2GHz, Intel Core Solo, 512GB RAM, 30GB hard drive, bluetooth, wifi, WWAN, running full WinXP, all small enough to fit in your pocket... But doesn't sound like Canada will get it at all.

Suri with a fringe on top

Well Tomkat's baby girl must have more than a fringe on top of her given that it's been months and no one has been able to publish a pic of her.

It's because she doesn't exist.. the baby is dead.. or is so ongodly ugly that it's going through baby plastic surgery. All the rage in Hollywood.

Now they're resorting to getting other Celebs (and I use that term a little loosely) to say how cute she is...

Who is Leah Remini anyhow? Also Jada has joined the cult of silence.

I still think the baby is dead... then I win the dead pool.
