My modem is moving slowly, joints creaking, trying to cycle itself back out of hibernation. My monitor actually looks darker than it did before...maybe that's just my imagination, though. You know that feeling you'd get on the first day of school every year, the one where you know where everything is, but the knowledge just comes slower than it should? No? Well, that's how I feel about the internet right now.

Yes, I'm back from my involuntary internet vacation. I wish I could justify it with some vitriol-dripping diatribe -- "FUCK THE PHONE COMPANY!!" -- but it's my fault. So I'm mad at myself. But the problem is fixed now, and shouldn't flare up again any time soon. But you never know.

Let's see, what did I miss....oh, the Yankees lost. I'm still happy about that, by the way.

I also missed We're Fucked Day, which pisses me off. I had planned on replacing my picture of Dr. Strangelove up there with this upside-down flag and a Rage Against the Machine quote: "It has to start somewhere. It has to start sometime. What better place than here? What better time than now? All hell can't stop us now" (from "Guerilla Radio"). But the phone company had other ideas. Oh well.

It's time for work now. I'll get back into the groove of posting pretty quickly, don't worry. And a new short story is coming. Aw yeah.

The teacher stands in front of the class
But the lesson plan he can't recall
The students' eyes don't perceive the lies
Bouncing off every fucking wall
His composure is well kept
I guess he fears playing the fool
The complacent students sit and listen
To the bullshit that he learned in school

Europe ain't my rope to swing on
Can't learn a thing from it
Yet we hang from it
Gotta get it, gotta get it together then
Like the motherfuckin' weathermen
To expose and close the doors on those who try
To strangle and mangle the truth
'Cause the circle of hatred continues unless we react
We gotta take the power back
