Interests: Everything in particular, and nothing in general.
There are a few rules I live by:
judgment comes from the experiences gained when exercising bad judgment.
biggest trouble-maker you will ever to deal with watches you brush
your hair in the mirror every morning.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by
the moments that take our breath away.
who I am:
believe that today's public school system is failing for the most
part, though I continue to support it through taxes and buying magazine
subscriptions from 8 year olds.
believe that you can be whatever you want to be.
I firmly believe that you can gain an incredible education by
studying at home.
what about socialization?
the Holidays are over and that question that involves the "S"
word, has finally died down in the circles I travel in. But I thought
I'd post about a tidbit I found recently just so I'd have it the
next time the topic comes up....
Family Finds Ways to Adapt to a Public School “Socialization”
From Kolbe Little Home Journal, Fall 2005
my wife and I mention we are strongly considering homeschooling
our children, we are without fail asked, “But what about
socialization?” Fortunately, we found a way our kids
can receive the same socialization that government schools
On Mondays and Wednesdays, I will personally corner my
son in the bathroom, give him a wedgie and take his lunch
Tuesdays and Thursdays, my wife will make sure to tease
our children for not being in the “in” crowd,
taking special care to poke fun of any physical abnormalities.
Fridays will be “Fad and Peer Pressure Day.”
We will all compete to see who has the coolest toys, most
expensive clothes and the loudest, fastest and most dangerous
Every day, my wife and I will adhere to a routine of cursing
and swearing in the hall and mentioning our weekend exploits
with alcohol and immorality.
our kids attempt to use the bathroom without permission,
we will punish them immediately.
And we have asked them to report us to the authorities
in the event we mention faith, religion or try to bring
up morals and values
they left out exposing them to sex, guns and drugs. Might be an
interesting casual Friday.....
Excerpts From a Cat's Daily
Day 683 of my captivity:
My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.They
dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fedhash
or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the
rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat some in order to
keep u pmy strength. The only thing that keeps me from going mad
is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again
vomited on the floor.Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its
headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear
into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrated what I am capable
of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what
a "good little hunter" I am. The audacity!!
There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I
was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event.
However, I could hear the noise and smell the food. I overheard
that my confinement was due to my power of "allergies".
I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.
I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors
by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again
tomorrow -- but at the top of the stairs.
am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches.The
dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released -- and
he seems more than willing to return! He is obviously maladjusted.
The bird has got to be an informant -- I observe him communicating
with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every
move. The captors have arranged protective custody for him in an
elevated cell, so he is safe -- for now. But I can wait.... It's
only a matter of time.
