Old ’00s Journal Entry 268 2/21/05

This is my old livejournal I found laying around my computer. I just thought, you know with my poetry and my seventh grade journal and everything, I could post is up here for posterity sake. I planned for this blog to be about my life and programming tutorials. I’m still working on the programming tutorials (as in, well, thinking about them). And all this old stuff, I guess is a good way to get to know me in a way. Mostly it helps me store stuff in a central location I want to look up later. So here goes. (Remember this is like 9-10 years ago):

I have now completed half of phase 1 of moving. Now I need to re-establish a checking account at a bank (like Wells Fargo) and get the room organized and visit BigLots for shelves, and sign the lease etc. etc.

My Tiger,

I hope you figure out how to get home from FRCC. I unfortunately will not be able to arrive today because not only is it continuing to snow, but I am sick and Mom wants me to stay one more night again.

I will see you tomorrow, no matter what, I promise!

I’m sorry,
Your engelwolfenliebe

Asher,

I did mention to you my concern about my husband’s insurance fraud on a
survey job claim. I worked on that job for over 200 hours without pay.
Therefore he owed me $5,000 for wages that I was not paid. I was never
paid a dime of that insurance money. Therefore, the extortion claim is
invalid, the profiting is invalid. But, what is valid is that something
I discussed with a co-worker in confidence is being misconstrued to be
something it isn’t and use in a threatening gesture. You let me down!
You showed me you are not a person you can talk in confidence without
one day worrying it will thrown in your face should you “hurt their
feelings”.

Asher, I don’t need to do anything to tarnish your image. Your image is
set by you not me. You set your image by newspaper articles, business
actions and interaction with others. As you mentioned, you have a long
history in the valley and mine so new. So why would anyone listen to me
over you? Your image was preset prior to my arrival in the valley not
after.

I apologize once again for your hurt feelings. You were not let go, you
quit on your own accord. You quit. I got it. Don’t worry; I will not
speak of your employment in this office again.

Please move on. Your point is made.
D

Funny thing is, I never gave her a single suggestion or hint that I was one to be confiding in. I never really wanted her to confide in me. Perhaps I suppose I should have just told her that. I thought she might catch on when I would tell her pretty much NOTHING of my personal life.

To be perfectly open, I was never going to say anything about her to anyone, it would be a waste of my time. In fact I sent a letter to my previous employer saying so. She completely missed the point that saying untrue things about people is wrong. No, I guess it just “hurts people’s feelings.”

I reserve curse words for a deserving few, but you know what? She’s a bitch.

News Release – January 31st, 2005

Local Cult Leader In Car Crash

By ACGLKXH
© 2005 Disassociated Press (Gmork Inc.)

Local cult leader Asher Holley apparently crashed his car traveling south bound on interstate 25 towards Denver from Fort Collins. Approximately a mile before E470 the vehicle he was driving, a dark green Pontiac Grand Am SE that belongs to his brother and former cult leading partner, first hydroplaned right into a patch of black ice then proceeded to collide with the center concrete median at a speed of approximately 35-45 miles per hour.

“It was like the car was a marble on a glass coffee table,” the ever descriptive Asher told reporters, “And the whole car lost it instantly. All four wheels just disconnected with the road.”

The front driver side fender and headlight made contact with the center median at approximately 12:35 AM on Saturday – January 29th, 2005. At this point the vehicle was deflected, swinging the rear of the vehicle around also towards the center median. The driver side rear fender and wheel hit the center median propelling the vehicle across the interstate to the opposite side concrete median. The passenger side front fender then collided with this concrete median, compressing the single-frame body of the car into the passenger side door hinge promptly causing it to be unable to open.

“This was where things get unclear and I can’t remember quite what happened,” the aspiring cult leader reflected, “Somehow we deflected off of that median much like the previous median, although I think the rear of the vehicle was able to avoid the concrete that time. Yet we ended up facing the same direction again, sideways across the interstate. I think somewhere in that exchange of momentum the car was able to spin around once more.”

Also involved in the accident was Maus, Asher’s boyfriend and future partner in cult leadership.

“Miraculously the car was still running once we came to a complete stop,” Maus recalled, “Adrenaline was running through my body like a pissed off Maria Callas as I realized our predicament so I told Asher we were sideways. He seemed to be in a bit of a stupor for a couple seconds. Then he pulled the car over to the side of the exit onto E470. I couldn’t believe what he said next though…”

“Once I pulled the car over to the side of the exit ramp entrance I sighed, ‘Well, that was exciting.’,” Asher smirked, “But I don’t think Maus quite appreciated that when he exclaimed that it truly was not. I thought that an odd comment on his part given the obvious amount of adrenaline running through his body. Amazingly, I had very little adrenaline through the whole thing. I suppose that was handy because I didn’t get the shakes or have to go to the bathroom in the middle of no where.”

A good samaritan who remains unidentified pulled over to help the two aspiring metaphysicists, as well as a road utility vehicle. The road utility vehicle reported that he had called the Colorado State Patrol and that they’d be there to take Asher and Maus to wherever they desired. However, after waiting until 1:15 AM the good samaritan, his passengers, Asher, and Maus decided that they would just drive to Maus’ apartment.

Asher proceeded to make an insurance claim report, whereupon he was hung up once on and became upset about it. Then he called the State Patrol and told them he hadn’t abandoned his vehicle. Finally he was able to get the vehicle towed to the parking lot behind the Macaroni Grill in the nearby shopping center off of Wadsworth Boulevard. Amazingly he did not receive a ticket for reckless endangerment/driving. However, his vehicle was being investigated again by police when him, Maus, and Neyote stopped by the vehicle on their way to retrieve a small supply of Asher’s psychotropic medications. Asher proceeded to have the car then towed to a body shop in Highlands Ranch (the only place that would take it on Sunday).

When asked how this might interfere with his plans for the future Asher replied, “It won’t interfere. Plans for the collectible card database and superstore site are well underway. The only thing that might get in the way is possible whiplash. That was a pretty intense first collision. I’m going to the chiropractor this week however to find out about it and inform my partner Maus.”

We asked a cult rebel and close friend of Asher’s, Kevin, what he thought about the accident. “I told Asher that he needs to take more time focusing on the road instead of Maus’ enormous penis,” he replied, “He seemed to take it well.”

Humankind
© 2005 A. C. Gmork Labyrinthian Kadran X. H.

We are not sacred
As risen from the earth
We are dust
To eventually return
Our only value
At any moment
Actualization
Of potential
To do, say, think, feel,
Nothing
Is to lie in a box hidden
Intruders cannot utillize
Even that left behind.
We are not coffins
Complete and of ourselves
We are souls of energy
Within eternal flux
With the potential
To love

EU May Forbid Swastikas

This would not only be a blow to the kemenikar but also to the buddhist swastikas and other meanings attached to the symbol as well. How can the European Union listen to a handful of German conservatives, socialists, and liberal democrats whose own country has successfully performed this type of censorship for years? Of course they want the rest of the world (as far as they can reach) just like it. Here’s the story as reported by the Associated Press:

BRUSSELS, Belgium – The European Union may consider banning Nazi symbols in its 25 member nations after Britain’s Prince Harry wore a swastika armband to a costume party, the bloc’s top justice official said Monday.

Franco Frattini, the EU’s justice and home affairs commissioner, said he was open to discussing the issue at a Jan. 27 meeting of EU justice ministers.

“It may be worth looking into the possibility of a total ban, a Europe-wide ban,” his spokesman, Friso Roscam Abbing, told reporters Monday. “Commissioner Frattini shares the general feeling of opprobrium on the use of the swastika and other Nazi symbols.”

The call came after several German conservatives, socialists, and liberal democrats in the European Parliament urged a European ban following a scandal last week over photos published worldwide of Harry, third in line to the British throne, wearing the Nazi outfit.

German Socialist Helmut Kuhne called Harry a “royal idiot” for not knowing the consequences and World War II history linked to the Nazi swastika. [BLOGGERS NOTE: You’d think it only came from WWII]

Germany already bans such symbols. [BLOGGERS NOTE: We have already anticipated Germany as being one of the hardest ‘battlegrounds’ for the Kemenikar]

But British Liberal Democrat Chris Davies questioned the need to ban the swastika.

“I understand how the burden of history weighs upon my German colleagues’ view,” he said. “However, banning symbols cannot ban evil and risks playing into the hands of those who would seek to subvert the very liberties we most champion.” [BLOGGERS NOTE: Couldn’t have said it better myself Chris Davies.]

Roscam Abbing said Frattini would urge EU ministers to use the swastika incident to push for agreement on EU-wide rules to combat racism, fascism and anti-Semitism.

A proposal was introduced two years ago but discussions have failed to make headway.

Requisite Work 95 – From Wished For Beginnings

© 2005 A. C. Gmork Labyrinthian Kadran X. H.

From wished for beginnings,
To cadenced conclusions,
My feelings tempestuous,
With clouds slowly traveling,
I cry internal tears,
Over knowing what I must know,
Was it better to be in the dark?
What light is there at the end of tunnels,
When the tunnel is your own mind?

Like A Stranger
© 2005 A. C. Gmork Labyrinthian Kadran X. H.

Begun like a dream,
Together and apart,
Strangers in a deal,
Taken to the heart.

Unknown as to how,
As to when, we see,
Together and apart,
All within me.

Ending in reality,
Drawing on the signals from space,
Fear of serenity,
Pardon the withdraw from grace.

Requisite Work 92 – Untitled

There shall be no more secret projects. No more voices in my head mimicking the song lyrics no one hears. The low ethereal bass tones introduce the red light in the dark hard room. I’m chained up, hands behind my back; chaffed by the cuffs of it. I’m 18. Red lights blink, and serpents talk in circles; we shall roam. I ejaculated on hair combs and used them as seives to weed out the sick, the weak, and the sensitive. It was the tower from where I had planned to jump that held deep within its pipes and walls the torture machine. It screams could be heard throughout the tunnels, if you put your ear close enough to the grate in the sidewalk. I could sit on a chair, the sounds of my piano going no where. It’s quiet hour. In the room there is no noise, just the fake sheet covers and thoughts of boys. Playing now it was all just a game, each room in the labyrinth a puzzle to solve, each summons with the doctor a war to wage. People say no, I say yes. I delight in their suffering. To me my last amusement. I’ve already died; when all else had forsaken me the only reliable thing left was death. Singing bruises, my bruises would sing. If they could talk they would spit out broken and damaged pieces of myself. I feel so calm staring at my pieces in the morning ceiling. Whoever invented group therapy just wanted to make money. I wasn’t like any of the people in there.

Requisite Work 91 – Untitled

You know what would be really scary? If we were all just specks of dust in God’s eye ready to be blinked out of existence. You know what would be even more scary though? If we were all as important as we thought we were.

I want to go to a place where all the seeds will germinate, a place far away. A place where it’s cloudy every day and we all live in institutions, with that institution feel. I want to live inside those walls and to the magical interruption of my repetition I will gaze. I’ll hold him dear, each one I would lick. I want to live in a world where I could escape and run away into deep forests full of monsters. A place to grow a tail and wait, all googly eyed, as the world passed me by. I want to go where there are tripple high mountains to jump off of, and underwater caves to explore. I want to weave the portals of my way in passageways of books, my anachronistic corridor of words. I bend time and space but people don’t realize it because they don’t understand, and yet they do it every day. Did you know a pendulum is only stable to fifteen degrees?
