Camel Towing

Look, I'm no prude. I swear too much, make rude sexual innuendo to my wife too much. I like raunchy movies sometimes (Super Troopers made me blow a nice Shiraz out my nose).

I'm not to bothered by too much.

However, do we need to be crass everywhere?

Last night I'm driving down Queen City Avenue into the city when I stop at a light beside and slightly behind a tow truck. Here's their yellow pages listing. Camel Towing of Independence Kentucky. Get it? Just in case you don't get it, the company had it's motto stenciled across the back of the cab. It read: There's no tow like a Camel Tow.

Now some dude with the wherewithall and brains to operate a tow truck, probably finance it, and run a business decided "Yes, I'll name my company for the cleaving of female genitals by fabric....and I'll proudly display it".

Not that I'm a prude, but I don't really need the thought of Camel Towing in my head at 6 pm. I especially don't want to have to explain it to my too young daughters.

Stay You.

Been Caught Stealing Kind of Day

Jane's Addiction's "Been Caught Stealing" seems to be the soundtrack of my day today.

I'm feeling good - and when I feel good, I want a driving rhythm, thumping bass line and screamed lyrics.

That's just me.

I've got some energy...and I have to sit down in front of this computer for the next few hours. Then a few more hours. Then tonight I have a long meeting.

But it's my's "mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine".

Stay You.

Larry Craig: What if it wasn't a cop in the next stall?

On thing I haven't heard talked about among all the He's gay, not gay, hypocrite, etc talk with Larry Craig is simple.

What if the cop in the next stall wasn't a cop?

Craig in on the appropriations committee. What if the cop was really a defense contractor. Or maybe a lobbiest or maybe an agent of China.

that's the real danger of Senators doing things like this. whether it's bathroom stalls or Vitter's hookers. Or Clinton's 22-year olds.

Stay You.

Trying to Write

I keep starting posts only to delete everything out. Everything I write sounds pretty lame so I delete it. Maybe the past few years have sounded pretty lame. Maybe I'm just going through a overly self critical time. I don't know.

Either way. Nothing I write here looks nice or original or interesting. It's all junk. Maybe a change is in order.

Stay You.

Clevenger Hall

One of the things I've been doing.

I'm full of sentiment...or is it sentimentality...lately.

Stay You.

Still Nothing Here

I was really into blogging for quite a while. Now I have no ambition. I still have thoughts that shot through my head that I think would make a good blog post, but I never seem to click my blogger link and do a brain dump.

Partly because I've been busy at work. Business - from all points - have picked up quite a bit, but something just flipped inside my head and I'm just not interested. I want to be interested. I really do, but there's no fire, there's no spark to blog. Maybe it'll show up tonight.

I'm building a personal website. Slowly learning html and realizing I have no design talent. daughter one is giving it a 9-year old try here. My 6-year old wants this changed.

Stay You.
