Saturday morning random stuff

I was in Florida on business August 9th-10th. Charley pays a visit right after I leave. Another business trip to Florida August 31st-Sept. 2nd. Frances threatens immediately after. Maybe I need to stay out of Florida during hurricane season.

What is the best ‘internet’ forum for online posting/publishing? (yes, I know LiveJournal is one, but I’m curious to see if there are “class” sites specializing in poetry/prose/etc.) DeviantART comes to mind. I know to stay away from ‘scams’ like the International Society of Poetry and that ilk.

At age 74 my mother has obtained a dog. She hadn’t lived with a dog since the 1970’s when dad was still alive and her kids were living at home. She thought it was cute when she could hold it in her hands, but now as it grows and turns into a terrorizing puppy, she is having second thoughts. I feel sorry for the dog. It took years for me to learn the basics of dog ownership. We own five setters all born and raised in this house. I would rather relive my experiences of breeding, whelping and raising our own litters (the largest was 14 puppies) than try to train and socialize the one pup mom now has.

Off to the used bookstore and library looking for mental stimulation.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
