Couple links to start the day.

So I woke up this morning to a couple cool links.

There are some really cool URL autocomplete functions in FireFox. Honestly…I never knew this functionality existed for the about:blank page. It’s kind of cool!

So if you haven’t heard, I am a pretty big fan of Project HoneyPot. This morning I saw in my twitter feed the following link to an imgur pic. Phishing scams are rampant nowadays and if you arent using a good spam filter things can get really messy. However every once in a while, the good guys get one over on the guys trying to steal from all of us.
When phishing scams aren’t well planned, you get the following:

Sometimes death likes to dance…

So as it happens, I suppose for a while there I got a respite. But Ol’ Grim…he’s never far away…

The problem with loving so many people is the pain felt in losing them. You might hear about my numerous encounters with Ol’ Grim (click here for the renditions, aka Dancing with Death). Unfortunately, as with everyone, if you live long enough and meet enough people, you inevitably get to meet him. Ol’ Grim came to visit tonight, but he didn’t stop for conversation, he just left me a note.

“The docs are giving me 2 years.”

Trust me, even if you hate my guts and wouldn’t waste the dung off your heel on my grave and you’re reading this solely so that you can justify hating reading this even more, you don’t want to ever hear this…

For me it wasn’t the first time. As I mentioned above, the awesome part in meeting so many people is in enjoying having them around and knowing that you’re looking forward to spending more quality time with them at some point in the future.

“The docs are giving me 2 years.”

Don’t get me wrong, my candor might be light, but if you know me, this is like pressing the BAD button for me. I don’t expect it’s much different for anyone else, but since this is my little patch of the internet, I am going to ignore anyone is actually reading this and just vent a bit. I’ve seen more friends pass than most soldiers have to see in battle. I’ve held the hand of the dying so many times it’s become a damn blur. Up until now, I’ve learned that this part of the experience is the same, but it’s also taught me that how people deal with it progressively is an entirely different matter.

I’ve learned how to keep from freaking out. I’ve learned that acceptance is everything and it takes fucking time, but it NEVER (and believe it or not I feel very lucky for this) diminishes the pain.

Today, I am going to spend the day with an old friend, and ignore the hell out of everyone else. Because for once I get to have fun and make the best of it before that day comes instead of regretting the days I missed.



Did you know…

Okay so if you’re not used to seeing this, it’s because I haven’t really done it in a while. Sometimes I get baseline lyrics running around in my head and I have to get them in print. I am not really a musician but I love my music. I got the bug early this morning and wrote it all out. Of course this song isn’t really a mystery, it just popped into my head and I cant stand not remembering the lines in my head later…so…yeah I post them here.

Enjoy! -T

Did you know… by Tony Hunt (2011-07-11)

Did you know amidst all that talkin,
we were humming to that same old song
It’s uncanny, but every time on the phone,
we were both pacing and trying to right those wrongs

Maybe if you knew bout this sad sad song
We’d have a chance to sing together
To play a different tune
To sing a different song

Did you know during all that yellin
I was wishin for another life for you
where all the wrongs were righted
and all the songs we had ended laughter

Maybe if you knew about this little bit of soul
We could look into each others eyes and never grow old
We’d play a different tune
and sing a different song

Did you know while we were thinkin
I’d imagined what it might be like for us
If things were just a little better.

Did you know while I was sleeping
I dreamed a little dream
There wasn’t much so different
But in it we’re together

…so much happier
