Trav:
Merry Christmas

Well We've survived another year, we've grown, maybe for the better, maybe for the worse.
Christmas is about giving, yet still people don't care, don't even notice...so much for the vagaries of nature.

Oi

Johnny Rumble:
Reborn...again...

Yes, we made more changes. Switched the whole burrito and cheese sauce (mmm...Taco Bueno) over to "Blogger in Beta." Also made a couple of other visual enhancements. The green theme was getting a little old, along with the top banner, so those got switched. I'll report on why the U.N. flag is up there at another time. At the bottom of the page, little funny quotes will be cycled in and back out as I think of them. Hopefully, they will make you at least smile. We're currently thinking about what writing will occupy the banner on the left side of the page. Might take a few days to figure out.

Oh, and while the feel of the place might come off as a more serious and "up-right" blog, trust us, it's still the nonsence and stupidity that you can expect from a couple of teenage boys on different coasts.

Hoo...Rah...

It's a good day today.

"But why John? Why is today a good day?"

Because I got to roll around in the dirt while getting my truck off the jack stands. Mostly I got my truck running again. It's been sitting idle in a storage lot with oil in the cylinders to keep "Betsy" (Yes, I named my truck) from freezing up. And she runs again! Now just to solve the mis-firing, the emmissions problems, and the mothball smell in the cab.

"Leatherneck" (my Saturn), got her water pump fixed this week too. So there's no more filling the coolant tank. For now at least. The only problems left are the frozen power door locks, the peeling clear coat on the door surrounds, and the speakers that cut in and out. "Leathernecks don't die, they adapt and survive." Fuckin right.

So I got dirty, my hair has vestages of motor oil in it, and things are going good. Hoo...Rah...

Johnny Rumble:
Transcendental Free Versing...

Put myself into a semi-lucid trance and started to free verse to see what would come out. It's not much, and it definatly far from complete, but it's at least something...

Materialism with materialist possessions
Super model looks, super model flair
Super fast car, all the aftermarket parts
You flash your cash, the ladies come hither
A lack of personality, such a catastrophe
Your night’s been flat-lined, hit with a clothes line
Open your mouth, idiot words pour on out
Whilst I sit in the corner and ponder
What ladies see in you I wonder?

Take a shot of my scotch, my vision is blotched
Continue stumbling around, all over this town
Evade the black-and-whites, on this lonely night
Slide around the corner, the distance I hear thunder
Find a place to run and hide, an alleyway I do ply
I ran into you, stunning, gorgeous, and intelligent too.

Took me by the hand, led me out of the storm
Offered a place to bed for the night, take pity in my plight
Rested my weary head, dreamed of scimitars and many dead
Nightmares kill my sleep, no more midnight eats
Your place seems familiar, I’ve been here before
My memories have faded since we last met
That night was cold dark damp and wet

Changes?...

I'm contemplating transfering over this blog from Blogger servers to our (read: mine) own. Unfortunatly, I would have to go about build my server, and then setting up our own personal blog website on it. While it wouldn't take that much to do so, I'm still on the fence about doing so. The extra work, the periodic maintenance, the set up, and what not. Even though I do think it would very cool to have our own very unique webaddress, I put off by the fact that both Trav (VWP) and Katlynn would not be able to follow.

I'll think on this some more and re-address this issue later.
