Debbie just hit the wall, she never had it all
One prozac a day, husband’s a CPA
Her dreams went out the door when she turned 24
Only been with one man, whatever happened to her plan?
She was going to be an actress, she was going to be a star
She was going to shake her ass on the hood of Whitesnake’s car
Her yellow SUV is now the enemy
Looks at her average life and nothing’s been all right
Since Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie and music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school tell her she’s uncool
Because she’s still preoccupied with 1985.
Now we’re right back to where we belong
And we’re going at it like a hammer, hammer and tongs
Hammer and tongs.
I have had a lot of both the past couple of weeks. Last week, the intrusive thoughts seemed to come thick and fast. Most of them were flashbacks to instances where I had been bullied only I imagine a different outcome, usually me inflicting physical harm upon the bully. However, the alternative scenario in my head does not make the problem go away. In fact, it tends to make me angrier and on account of my DAMP tendencies, I sometimes let that anger boil over to where I begin to act out what I’m thinking. A common tendency with DAMP. Fortunately, the intrusive thoughts have eased off substantially but I still have some anxiety issues.
This coming Saturday, I will be going to Cardiff for an event called Avenger’s S.T.A.T.I.O.N. It’s a Marvel related thing which my step daughter organized. I worry about finding the places we need to go, especially with my SATNAV being outdated. So, I’m a little anxious about that. Two weeks from then, I’m off to the USA for two weeks and while I’m looking forward to going, I have the normal worries about money, flights, car rental and travelling to and from the airport. Fortunately, the accommodation is all settled or so I hope.
On another note, if you have been reading my “Things That Prove My Insanity” posts, the series, “The Planets,” which I have been watching the the BBC, has given me more food for thought. My theory is that if the Sun keeps getting hotter and life on planets come and go throughout the solar system, then in around ten billion years, another human world will live and die on Saturn’s moon Triton. Just a thought. Wishing you all good health this week.

My last post worked, the rain has stopped, at least temporarily. So, here’s a different one.
If you wanna be like Tiger Woods
Fertilizing ladies in the neighbourhood
Get real rich and you will find
All the hot chicks will want to grind
If you wanna be like Tiger Woods
Grip that shaft like you know you should
Get a platinum card, it will all be good
The girls will want you just like Tiger Woods
I figured with all the rain we’ve been having here in the UK, these song lyrics from Jefferson Starship would be most appropriate. The song is called, “Don’t Let it Rain.”
Don’t let it rain on me tonight
Don’t let it rain
I need to feel the sun again
Oh baby, please don’t let it rain.
The lyrics for this song were supplied by one of the greatest prog metal bands of all time, Savatage.
Wash you women in your whiskey
When your future’s in the past
And you’re staring up at heaven
From the bottom of a glass
And you need some insulation
From the years that you have lost
And you feel the perspiration
As you’re adding up the cost
On the night rolls on like a slow moving train
And the soul cries out for a handful of rain.
This first song if from the band Vaughn.
You can’t hold on to a handful of rain
You can’t beg the wind to call your name
You can’t make a deal with time and beg it not to change
It slips away like a handful of rain.
Having been raised in a strong Christian household, it is only natural that religious arguments creep into my theories about life on other planets. Some faiths argue that we are alone in the universe but I don’t agree with this. It’s hard for me to believe that in this infinite universe, the only life there is just happens to be on this small blue planet. No, my mind hasn’t been corrupted by Satan, I arrived at this conclusion during my heavy religious days. However, during my decade with the Mormons, it is that faith that best coincides with my belief. Mormons believe that many worlds have come and gone before our world was created and many more will do the same after our world has passed. I believe that there are many peopled worlds out there right now, though I highly doubt we will make contact with them.

Take my previous post on life on Venus. Who is to say that the planet wasn’t once a thriving world which eventually passed away before the building blocks of life became available on Earth? Besides, if I was God, I might think that with the ever increasing heat of the Sun, simply have one planet be born and thrive and when that planet dies, move onto the next one as the Sun gets hotter. It just makes the creation job easier. That brings me to the crux of this post. My theory is that the Sun’s heat will continue to increase and eventually our world will die and the building blocks for life will pass onto the next planet, Mars.
Of course, there are complications to my theory since the Martian atmosphere is evaporating away. Here’s where science fiction can become reality. Mars’s atmosphere is mainly carbon dioxide and little free oxygen. Therefore, as the carbon dioxide evaporates away, the Sun heats the planet in such a way that when it warms up enough, oxygen somehow develops in the air and eventually life is established on Mars. By the time human life occurs on Mars and they develop the tools to see into the stars, Earth will be like Venus is now. A hot hell hole with a poisonous atmosphere and no life.
Thanks to the encouragement of two people who actually read my post about life on Venus, I might write that novel about two spaceships taking off in their own time and landing on the other’s planet, thinking it’s their own. A great end to the story is that two more rockets take off, only the other one blasts off from Mars a few billion years in the future. It does lead to a sequel if enough people like the first story.

Rock and roll is what my body needs
Rock and roll is what my body feeds
Every single note is the antidote
Rock and roll is what my body needs.
I need you like Ben Affleck needs acting school
He was terrible in that film
I need you like Cuba Golding needed a bigger part
He’s way better than Ben Affleck
And now, all I can think about is your smile
And that shitty movie too
Pearl Harbor sucked and I miss you!
