Which is exactly what today (when and if I get up) is going to be filled with. The last ten or so days has left me feeling like I've been eaten by a coyote and shit off a cliff. I'm mentally and physically just drained. I've got satellite TV and NFL football to keep me company tomorrow.

Gotta say...I wish I had more people stopping by here and leaving comments. I have no idea if any of this is worth the effort or if I'm putting anything out there worth reading without them.

I hope everyone who was going out this weekend had a great time. I'm looking forward to being able to come home and enjoy some of that party spirit. Just save some for me ok?

I'm going to add in a new angle here with this thing. One of the topics we've discussed not only here but in Club Real and other blogs is the amazing amount of trollish behavior on the part of so many men here. In keeping with my complete and total disdain for this type of chickenshit I'm going to give some of my philosophy about what being a man really is all about. (And no, I'm not going into the booze drinking, skirt chasing, and other such stuff...that's a given)

What really makes men of character is an overriding ability for them to show courage and conviction in a modern world that tends to look at such action as a punchline rather than a true code of life. I'm certainly not about to hold myself up as Mr. Perfect Moral Example. I've got all kinds of faults....and have done some shady shit in my life. What seperates me though from so many is that I have no problem admitting my shortcomings and actually attempting to do something about them. They aren't someone else's fault...there's nobody else to blame. It all falls to me. As Harry S Truman said.."The buck stops here". No shit Harry. For anyone with an ounce of integrity there just isn't any other way.

Today's character lesson:

Don't let someone else create your world for you...for when they do, they will always make it too small.
