Idiosyncrasies..we all have them. Some of us more than others.

One of mine is pens. I have a habit of stealing them. Funny thing is though..I tell people..that I steal pens..before I take one. They usually just laugh..and give it to me. Mostly..I like the ones made of steel..with just the right balanced weight..writing flow..and black ink. I like it when they fit just right..between the thumb and forefinger. I can write for hours..with the right pen. For some strange seems to help the thoughts flow. .

One one of my jobs..the people in the office got together and conspired to give me a gag gift for my birthday. guessed it. Pens! Boxes and boxes of Bic pens. I'm not really sure why..I'm so obsessed about them. Oh well..who knows..maybe subconsciously..I'm searching for the perfect pen.

Another idiosyncrasy..I don't trust the clue on envelopes..or post-it-notes. I always reinforce the seal with tape. My boss at work..same place where they gave me all those pens..would tease me about it. So whenever I left him a note..I'd put ridiculous amounts of tape on it.

Anyway..I don't really think I'm any stranger than most. Come on..admit have yours to. What are they?

One I can think of is, I never take the first magazine on the rack. I always take one from the middle.

I do that magazine thing too but the first thing that came to mind is when I put the little sippy lid on my paper coffee cup, the hole has to face away from the seam in the cup.

Lighters. I steal lighters. As with you, not intentionally, but I always managed to wind up with them. Oh yeah, I'm bad at bogarting bowls too. Joe

I worry that my computer is reading what I write, and thinks I'm an idiot.

I should probably stop hanging out here..for fear it will rub off on me. Or..we can get the the bottom of all this disturbing behavior..with one or two or maybe more..insightful and soul searching lines.

Mags... just don't want the responsibility of writing? I would suggest buying a 24 carat gold pen. for your shirt pocket. You may want to have your nipple pierced..and attach your gold a delicate chain. You should have no problem holding on to that one.

Let me get this straight now..after leafing through the magazines at
the front..and bending up the then take the one from the middle? That's positively shameful. Smack yourself on the hand the next time you're tempted to do that. And say "bad girl" Never mind the stares.

I'm very worried about such deviant behavior. It sounds like you may need years of therapy.

Joe... a disease..but there is hope. At the next full moon..I want you to go to the top of the hill behind your house. You should be naked. Rub some butter on your stomach. Turn around three times..while saying "huck-a-buck-a-boo" will be cured!

This habit of yours..of sucking up to people..has got to stop! Tie yourself to the bedpost..hands and feet. I should be there in a week or mete out your punishment.

Checking everything just 3 not enough. You should be checking at least 6 times. That is the surest way.

Has your computer told you that it is reading what you write? Don't you think you should be more trusting of the little guy? And say something to nice to it once in a while. Don't just swear at it. After all..everybody makes mistakes now and then.

MzHuny... mean to tell me that cigarette butt in my water glass was yours? But I guess it's better than giving in the that tendency for pyromania.

Ok that I've solved your idiosyncrasies..the sun is coming up and I've got to get into my aluminum foil keep the Martians rays from getting to my brain. Have a wonderful day. Let me know if I can be of further help.

Is "stealing pens" really stealing if you don't know you're doing it? I have brought several home before I even knew it.

I understand pens fitting just right. I have bought "my favourite" pens by boxes and actually keep them locked in my desk at work. It feels good and there is a smooth connect from my mind to my hand to the pen.

My "stuff" is alphabetized. CD's, DVD's, books...A to Z. My rationale is; if I go buy a CD, I want to make sure I don't already have it, and if I have it alphabetized, it's easier to check. Perhaps I have too many CD's.

i used to be a pen hoarder, but since i hardly use them anymore, not so much ... still if i want to get into creative writing and feel blocked, a pen is always the best remedy...

Pen thief, eh?

Greeting KissMyStuff,

Vengeance is Mine, saith.... err.... umm.... Me (ulp).

My main idiosyncrasy is wondering about the wrong things.

Recently, I wondered about vengance.

Here's how I did that.

As you know, we have been promised that a certain Right shall not be infringed.

That implies that some rights have been infringed or may be infringed.

But if something can be granted or taken away, then it can hardly be called a "Right," right? Else they'd just say, "youse can do this, and youse can't do that!"

Of course, They do that today, but They didn't do it then, at least no t in these parts, where all bore arms and knew what to do with them.

Before modern weapons, such as machine guns, were invented, the average militial rifle (sometimes called a "squirrel gun") was actually better than the regulation, smooth-bore musket issued by His Majesty (who was in hock to the international bankers) the "King."

And remember the Browning Automatic Rifle? BAR? Weapon of choice of Clyde Barrow (robber of banks)?

Yes, once upon a time in the West, you could have one. Hell, you could have two or three, if you could afford them.

But this response is not about the Right to bear arms.


This post is about the Right to Vengance.

It's one of those Rights that have been infringed.


Meaning, it's still a Right.... but if you decide to exercise it, you must be willing to face the consequences (or to whine and complain a lot about them, at least). Meaning legal consequences, not lawful ones, for vengance is still the Law, law growing from common practice and custom and legalities being generated by certain scribes and parasites.

Still a Right.

Rights are not granted or issued by government, nor Kings.

Rights are not even granted by "God," as some of the sadly mistaken stuper-patriot types believe.

No. Rights originate in the mind that comprehends and grasps, "This is Right."

And Rights are obtained by individual action, although sometimes defended or carried out by group action.

Wow. Quite a lot of typing there. Quite a lot of trouble-making, all over four little words, "shall not be infringed."

And quite a distance from the Right to bear arms to the Right to vengance, or do you think maybe Im wrong about that.

You see, the Free Man or Woman is always armed, be it with a firearm, a sword, or a butternife. Even one of those jumbo-sized magic marker highlighters may be jammed against at temple to cause injury or death. Or a rolled up magazine found hanging on a rack next to the grocery check out.

Absent one of the above, I think one of those nifty metal pens would be just the thing with which to wreak Vengance!
