Day after Christmas Musings and Observations

Once again I'm here at work (the day after Christmas) and so far have received 2 calls. That's pretty significant considering that on my normal shift (1pm - 10pm) I think my record so far is maybe 12 calls. Today I'm working 10am - 7pm because there are only 2 of us for the day. Oh, also I'm being laid siege by "xbox" agents. No, I'm not in a parallel universe of the "The Microsoft Matrix" (but again, maybe I am -- hmmmmmmmm..............get back to you on that one).

I work in a "call center" and we just hired anywhere from 200 to 1000 new "inbound call agents" (that's my illustrious title) for a newly acquired "xbox" account. Boy, I'm glad I'm not on that account! Anyway, I'm deciding here (with my usual, consistent, and characteristically normal) "down-time" if 1) I have anything important to report or comment on 2) if I don't have anything important, should I seek something of importance, and 3) if I actually do find something, do I really feel (i.e. have the energy) like reporting and/or commenting period! As you have probably surmised here so far, I have either the gift or curse of "thinking out loud". I'm not sure if this is a disorder or a clandestine personality trait of genius. You see, Freud (or as "Bill and Ted" would affectionately say "Frood") if he ever had his chance to "psychoanalyze" (or lobotomize) me would have to conclude that I am -- abnormal.

We ARE really getting into some REAL "Brain Sex" here aren't we boys and girls. I guess I would eventually get around to this. Why not now. Freud (with the exception of his ingenious model of the "Id, Ego, and superego") is one of the masters who is really responsible for screwing up this world we currently live in. Boy, I could write a book on this to express how I really feel. But, I HATE WRITING PAPERS! Probably why after 5+ years, and possibly 200+ college credits the only "sheepskin" I possess is a A.A. in Liberal Arts. My dad completed up to his masters, but quit pursuing his doctorate because; he too hated writing papers. Looks like I inherited that same gene.

I could get into the MBTI and the fact the I turn out to be an ENXP (huh!), but I'll leave that for another time. Also that I am have been properly diagnosed as ADHD, but have not taken one psychotropic since 1998. Again, I'll expand on this at a latter and more relevant time.

Speaking of the "Id, Ego, and Superego" -- if you have not seen "The Forbidden Planet"; then SEE IT! Classic Sci- Fi, and as a bonus it stars Leslie Nielson. Yes, the same guy in the movies "Airplane" and "Naked Gun" series. If you recall the scripture Romans 1:22, then you can see why this movie is such a gem.

See, this is why we call this "musings". This is "Brain Sex" at its best folks. You're getting to watch a real person think out loud here. And, more than that -- it's FREE! Not as good as "The Lord of the Rings:The Return of the King", mind you; but I didn't quite get the same budget. Speaking of LOTR:ROTK, I have not seen this yet; but really looking forward to it. I will post my impressions as soon as I have viewed it. Come to think of it, I just thought of something that is really worth posting and commenting on. It has to do with one of the actors of LOTR.

John Rhys-Davies has been quoted in a number of articles for saying some very extraordinary and (very off-hollywood) contentions. I think his best was captured here by Steve Beard. I have always enjoyed the characters he portrays especially as "Sallah" in the "Indiana Jones" series. There was always something about him that forced me to say, "This guy is the real thing". It would appear from his remarks in that article that he could be well qualified (probably much more than many today) to be a professor of history or political philosophy at a well regarded (which there are very few to speak of today) college or university.

INTERJECTION: Alright................. one hour to go! You see, that is what I live for in this current job of mine. Counting down the minutes to my first break, then counting down to my lunch period (which is usually and currently when most other "normal" people are sitting down to their dinner), then counting the "minisels" (what "Snoop Dog" says) to my last break, then finally counting down to the end of my shift. Sounds like a job to live for, eh? But, it is a job, and it's money; and I must bow down and thank the Creator for my good fortune for now, and pray for better times to come.

Back to John Rhys-Davies. This is a guy that is now on my "A" list of hollywood types that I would most want to meet and converse with. Along with Mel Gibson, Charleton Heston, "Awenold", Bruce Willis, and Chuck Norris to name unfortunately very too many few. Also just think about his father predicting the current "Islamofascists" war on the west in 1955! His dad must have been something else as well. Thank God for men like JRD. Because of men like him, the press is definitely getting the right scoop, but at the same time; I'm not sure if they're really listening or (more to the point) -- get it!

I think JRD quoted it best:

"What is unconscionable is that too many of your fellow journalists do not understand how precarious Western civilization is and what a joy it is.


"True democracy comes from our Greco-Judeo-Christian-Western experience. If we lose these things, then this is a catastrophe for the world."

While the ACLU is busy at it's foremost mission to remove every speck of evidence of our founding principles from public view, and while we were treated this year to a transvestite "Mrs. Claus" at the Macy Day parade; I'm wondering if any of us really get it! What's it going to take? 11 X 9-11s???
