Flash Friday 55: Sleep Pod

Sometimes hope flies away on ghostly butterfly wings, which have been crushed multiple times.
I want to fly away with hope.
To cocoon myself until it's safe to wake up
And be who I really am.
But I don't think that will ever happen.
Eveyone likes clowns.
No one likes the freak behind the mask.
Share your stuff here if you want. It's a writing game by a fellow by the name of G Man, and he does it every Friday.

I don't really want to come off as an asshole to people who may be "meeting" me for the first time, but the first one who tells me I "need to be on meds" needs to go jump off a cliff. I've been bipolar probably since I was 10 years old, though I wasn't diagnosed until I was 38. I don't need any armchair psychologists trying to analyze me when I'm expressing myself during what happens to be a drop on the mood disorder roller coaster, thank you very much.
To those who might have appreciated the work, sorry for the defensiveness. It's something that I've unfortunately become rather accustomed to.

Facts About Chocolate

There are two things in life that must never be resisted or passed up--besides free money. I mean cheese and chocolate, Dahlings! This post will cover the chocolate angle. In the meantime, I will eat some chocolate from this Valentine heart that I got as a gift from my Mommy.
Refuting silly, silly myths about chocolate, the Food of the Heavens.

Wheezy gets some insanely good chocolate and shares his thoughts.

 He also discusses barefoot running. I'd rather not try it. When I was much younger, I forced myself to run. I hated it. I jog in the pool--seriously. Non-impact exercise is much better for my sciatica and knee issues.

 I do want a pair of these though. One of my cousins has a pair, and he swears by them. I wonder if I could get away with wearing them at work. I'm sure they'd--dare I say it--stop people in their tracks. I could eat exotic chocolate while wearing these shoes. Suddenly, my day would seem much cooler!

Khalil Islam passed away in 2009.

The Assassination of Malcolm X

This is the scene from Spike Lee's movie, X.


"We have not yet learned to disagree without becoming violently disagreeable." --Martin Luther King, on the assassination of Malcolm X.

A horribly misguided need to be right at all costs resulted in the assassination of Malcolm X. There are still many questions about who exactly was behind the killing. There were members of the Nation of Islam who were arrested for his murder. Talmadge Hayer confessed to the crime. Norman 3X Butler (AKA Muhammad Abdul Aziz) and Thomas 15X Johnson, (AKA Khalil Islam) were also convicted, but their convictions are questionable.

It is also possible that certain factions of the U.S. government were culpable in the death of Malcolm X. We may never know for certain.

Malcolm X was a true role model. He wasn't perfect, but he was highly intelligent and eager to find the truth in any situation. His desire to do the right thing led him to be at odds with the Nation of Islam, as he came to the point of no longer believing in Black supremacy, but in the need for human equality and justice for all people.

Although I am white, I count Malcolm X among my role models. He stood up for what he believed in, even though it cost him his life. He was willing to change his ways if he discovered he was going down the wrong path. He owned his actions and apologized for his mistakes. Such traits do not know any particular race. They are traits that every human being should attempt to embody.

Rest in peace, Malcolm. The world is a better place for your having been here.

Poor Wheezy. He really has to go to the bathroom, but he can't let Matt Damon, he of the Godlike bladder, know!

A (COMEDY) Re-enactment of the Takedown of Bin Laden

If you find South Park and other Trey Parker/Matt Stone productions funny, you will likely find this amusing. Otherwise you will probably just find it foolish and offensive. So no bitching--we warned you up front!
