Back when I was attending CLC not long after college I got into sewing a bit. I made a blouse with a piece of cotton I found somewhere on sale. It was very economical and the pattern was an easy one. I wore it to church and I remember Craig Bolenbaugh kidding me and saying that it looked like I was wearing a tablecloth. So typical of Craig to make all these nasty digs, like I should care what he thinks. Is it my fault that Pam always complained about my clothes, as if I spent a fortune on clothes because I live at home with my parents while she is on her own and with a boyfriend so has to spend all her money on a wedding dress and force her bridesmaids to spend something like $70 or $80 on a dress that I can wear only once, not to mention the matching shoes and other expenses involved, not that I am complaining or anything like that, but really, get real.


These TV people offer me nothing but an oxymoron. They say that in Christ we are free and yet they offer me nothing in real terms, nothing but slavery to the horrible Bueno/Hoskins/Connally clan which is composed mostly of people I can't stand anyway. There is something wrong with this picture and I am not sure how to fix it. Christianity is supposed to be a good thing and yet it is a stifling suffocating reality to have any connection to the horrible Bueno/Hoskins clan with their Hideous Horrid Hazel and her petulant bratty sons. They just sit there waiting for me to die. It is unfortunate that we have to live in some geographical proximity to those horrible people because they have a way of poisoning the waters all around them. Unfortunately they have amassed all the money unto themselves so that nobody else can do anything about it.


We see that Lee Bueno was cast into the bottomless pit and locked down there where she belongs because nobody wants to hear from those people. Talk about a voice like fingernails on a chalkboard! Just goes to show that if you are loaded with money then everyone has to listen to you even though you are a horribly wicked witch and you are making everyone miserable and ruining our lives just to prove yourself more powerful than us, which actually makes you more like a Druid than a Christian as far as we can tell. There is no love of Christ in you, just lots and lots of money.

Overdue Fines

I vaguely remember reading some books at Alexandra's house or else somewhere, maybe the Raggedy Ann and Andy and also Pippi Longstocking, the ageless redheaded next door neighbor who is just always there and will not be disappearing any time soon, and also the Narnia books. These are children's books some of which I might have read at the school library, although I really don't remember. It's not like I have these books in my possession at this time so I do not owe any overdue fines to the library or to Alexandra either for that matter so there is nothing else to say about that. I vaguely remember that Alexandra moved away to Afghanistan and we never saw her again after that. So there is nothing else to add to this story. I cannot spend the rest of my life remembering every book I ever read in my childhood. I read lots of books in my younger days so that would a hopelessly monumental task, but at least more entertaining than trying to read all the literature produced by 19th century missionaries about China. It was a different world back then and people talked and wrote and thought differently. You are just not going to find us having written anything like "Chinese Characteristics," written by Arthur H. Smith, not to be confused with my great-grandmother's cousin Arthur D. Smith, as fascinating for the author's attitude and viewpoint as for anything he may have said actually said about Chinese people. You can't talk about these people from more than 100 years ago and expect us to know what you are talking about. You are just barking up the wrong tree, that's all.


Yes, I vaguely remember that Alexandra invited my sister to see the movie "Oliver Twist." I was also invited to that movie or else another movie but I declined to go saying that I was not allowed to see movies or that I did not believe in going to the movies or something like that because actually it was against the rules for missionaries and we weren't supposed to be doing that and we knew that. René came home from seeing "Oliver Twist" in a state of stupor and ecstasy, singing these songs "Consider Yourself At Home" and other songs and also talking about the movie based on Charles Dickens' fictional tale of orphan boys in 19th century England. At the same time, René and the other girls decided that I was just a complete idiot because of not going to the movies. Later I did agree to movies with them because I realized that if I play by the rules I lose out on having any friends or anything to do and just sit home alone while my sister is out on the town. Even my own mother ridiculed me for complaining about their mistreatment of me, saying that I was the one who said it was against the rules so obviously they are going to think that I am obnoxious. I can't expect to make friends that way, now can I? At the same time it is also true that if I do not play by the rules and go to the movies I still lose because obviously it is against the rules and it really wasn't my idea to break the rules in the first place. That was my sister's idea. So basically I can't win this game. I made the mistake of stating the rule in the first place and so I will always look like a hypocrite to them when actually they are the ones who are the devil's advocate, always tantalizing with these tempting movies and yet never really accepting the fact that we don't really need them and their stupid movies that were not really that great anyway and anyway salvation is not conditioned on whether or not I went to see a movie. God forgives me for that so it's not about going to hell if I go to the movies. It's more personal than that. Am I going to let this world conform me into its image and likeness which is what movies are all about? When you adapt your life to the movie culture you begin to think like them and act like them. The makers of movies shape your thought patterns in conformance to wordliness and after a while you are a tasteless Christian. The salt loses its savor and must be thrown out to the world because it is not setting the culture but is rather being driven by the culture. The Christian is supposed to be doing the opposite. We are supposed to be a city set on a hill, a light in the darkness to show the way. We cannot let the stupid movie makers tell us what to think. Who are those pagan druid movie makers anyway? They skew everything according to whatever sells but that doesn't make it right. I am just saying that there is plenty of pathetically bad movie stuff on TV without paying extra money to see it at the box office and thereby incurring the wrath of Springfield. So while we understand the logic behind movie rules, we are no longer missionaries and thus no longer Catholics in this matter of box office idolatry. The pope does not tell me whether or not I can go to the movies. The law is one thing and yet the reasons not to bother going to the movies are many. My sister never did share my opinions in this regard which matters not to me. I still rarely go to the movies and if I do go it's usually disappointing somehow. It's really not that exciting to experience the Pirates of the Caribbean selling their souls to the devil. It's actually kind of sick and scary.


Leafing through my ninth grade yearbook I see the photos of two sisters, Alexandra and Susan Winkelman. Who on earth are those people? I have no memory of them. Certainly they would have nothing to say to me after so many years and I also have nothing to say to them even if we did go to the same high school. It just doesn't matter anymore.

Cherry Tree

George Washington confessed to chopping down the cherry tree because, as he told his father, he could not tell a lie. That's amazing, sort of an ideal that we all perhaps should aspire to emulate. However, it is probably not possible to not tell a lie. I personally would not want to claim that I never told a lie. As soon as I would say that the devil would be there at my side reminding me of some long forgotten lie that I may have said, some incident of youth or childhood best left buried under the forgiveness of the blood that Christ shed on the cross. I don't really remember when I lied or what I said but it is quite possible that I did lie at some time in my life, a huge disappointment no doubt to Grandpa McClellan and yet indicative of the fact that I, like all members of the human race, am affected by the curse of sin in this world. Jesus' death and resurrection was all about forgiveness and redemption, not about anyone being the "best." Only Jesus lived the perfect sinless life.

These Pagan Southern Baptists

It is amazing how these Southern-Fried Baptists pretend to be Pentecostal Christians and at the same time they teach us about magical spells and potions. They tell me that if I say that I am a grasshopper, that I will become a grasshopper. That is so ridiculous. I will not be a grasshopper no matter what stupid thing I might say. No combination of magical words or chanted spells will ever convert my human body into that of a grasshopper. Sure, it would be a stupid thing to say but I never said that and even if I had said that it wouldn't be true. It would just be a lie. Thus, I never described myself as a grasshopper, nor am I a liar in that sense. I might have once or so likened myself to a turtle but not in a literal sense, obviously. Only in the sense of having a thick hide to protect myself from danger. Thus, I am neither a turtle nor a grasshopper. I am a human being just like you and do not deserve to be kicked around in this way. It's just ridiculous. This is just further proof that these people that one sees at church and even in the choir are not necessarily Christians. They might even be pagan Druid witches. How would I know? They appear as angels of light but then later you realize you were talking to the devil. Scary.


Why is everyone expecting me to pay for everything? I can't possibly pay the Baptists' many bills. I don't even have any idea what all they have done to other people, only the nasty stuff they did to me, and there is no reason why I should pay for stuff I don't know anything about. It just isn't fair.

Turkey Me

Yes, that was so embarrassing to admit, at age nine in fourth grade, that I still believed in Santa Claus. It was so utterly humiliating to be told that it was just my parents making me look like a fool. Cheryl always knew there was no Santa Claus so how could I have been so stupid as to take for granted that what my parents were telling me was true? How could I be so naive as to stupidly believe that there actually was a Jolly Ol' St. Nick who flies around on a sleigh every Christmas Eve dropping off toys for little boys and girls who are good? I always believed that I was good because every Christmas morning because there were the toys under the tree from Santa, and also the milk and cookies were gone, but now I am starting to wonder. Perhaps it was all just a ruse. Like Cheryl was saying, all that time it was just my parents who went to the store and bought things and gift wrapped them and put them under the tree. And they expected me to stupidly believe that an old bearded fat man would ever do me any favors. How wrong they were and how stupid I was to just accept this farce at face value. And yet even now society conspires to make little boys and girls believe in this mythical red-capped personage, he of the fur-trimmed sleeves. Why did I not rise up and seize the truth? After all, praxis demands that the people rise up and liberate themselves from these theological traps, to shake off these misty myths fogging their clarity of thought, these boondoggles that are imposed by the ruling classes. And yet there I was at age eight stupidly pondering whether the lights of an airplane flying overhead on Christmas Eve might actually be Santa on his sleigh. Yes, I was pathetically stupid at age 8 and even age 9. So what can I say? I was just wrong, hopelessly utterly humiliatingly wrong. Wrong. What part of wrong do you not know how to spell? All this stupid stuff about Santa is just W-R-O-N-G.

Alabama Loser

Yes, I do know one other person from Alabama, that pathetically wimpy loser Tim Connally. I always did have no respect or regard for that obnoxious Alabama pestilence of Southeastern alumni who imagine themselves somehow better while their own rotten attitude belies their uselessness. Of course, I never liked Tim Connally ever and always thought he was a total creep, classic example of pretentious PK, long before he was diagnosed with Parkinsons and wasted away to nothingness. I guess that his wife, that viciously hideous bitch Christie Gladstone, got what she deserved when she married that Deep South blob of nothingness, just riding on the coattails of their pretentious parents. Obviously those two pathetically stupid people do not deserve to have children and yet they have maybe five of them, not that I ever said anything about that. So we see that one cannot always say who does or does not deserve to have children. Perhaps the children will do fine as adults in spite of their having such pathetically horrible parents. Yes, it wouldn't be fair to judge the Connally kids by their horribly worthless parents, at least in my opinion.

Yes, so how do I tell that horrible woman Raeann to butt out of my personal life? I just can't stand those people and never want to do any ministry projects with them ever in this lifetime. Once was bad enough. Surely God would not curse me with any future attachment to Raeanne and her horrible daughters because personally I just can't stand those people and hopefully they will get a clue, too, that they have no place in my life and ministry, thanks anyway.

Alabama Connections

It is weird, all these Alabama connections. I don't really have any real connection to anyone in Alabama. We have not heard from Tom and Jean in at least 20 years. I vaguely remember at Evangel College there was someone from Alabama on my dorm floor but I don't remember her. Maybe her name was Angie but I really don't remember Angie. She was disagreeable with some other people on the floor but I don't remember what that was about. Angie was just a very disagreeable and unpleasant person to be around and I really didn't care what Angie thought about whatever, which was another reason not to go back to Evangel next year. I just can't have all of these insignificant acquaintances pretending to run my life. It's not supposed to work that way.


It was Gail Reese's idea for us all to work together on a project making Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls We never did get very far with that and then when we left we put our unfinished pieces in our suitcases thinking that maybe somehow we could finish that later but then we never did and finally we got rid of that stuff. I don't think I still have those pieces anymore. Anyway, I don't feel very guilty about that. Gail was very disorganized and failed to schedule the followup meetings where we were supposed to finish the project so really it was her fault that the whole project fell apart. I don't know why anyone has anything else to say about that. She brought over the stuffing for us to stuff our pieces first so we did that and there wasn't enough stuffing to even finish our own pieces so they probably had to get more stuffing from somewhere else to finish their pieces. Maybe they have their Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls but we never did finish ours and are not interested in resuming that or doing any future projects with the obnoxious, inconsistent, back-stabbing traitorous Baptists. With friends like that I don't need enemies. They do a great job of playing the part of devil's advocate without any help from me.


I vaguely remember reading Mark Twain's Puddn'head Wilson in high school and I don't remember what I wrote about that. The book reflects an ethos of 19th century Deep South but I was never from the Deep South so can't say much about that in a personal way. I vaguely remember that Tom and Jean from Alabama lived down here and worked at Vida for a while but we haven't heard from them in many a long year. I have no idea why I should care about Alabama when I can't even understand what they are talking about with that thick Southern accent of theirs. It was the Baptist Reese's who were from Georgia but I also have not heard from them in years. We never were really close friends with them anyway and I really couldn't care less that Shannon is still angry with me because I dropped the turtle there in the patio. They always did have the most rotten attitudes toward me. Anyway, it is not like the opinions of the Bells and the Reeses matter in the slightest. They always were just the silliest most superficial people I ever did meet and I hope to never see again in this lifetime.

I Hate Sports

Yes, I always did pretty much hate sports. In high school when teams were picked I was always among the few remaining leftover people who were not picked until the team had no choice but to put me on their team. That is just the way it is with me and sports. I hate teams and the politics that go along with being the last person picked or rather not picked but forced down your throat. However, you just don't have a choice. It's put me on your team or go to jail. All I have to do is stand here stoically, expressionless, until the teacher sends you to the principal for demonstrating such a rotten attitude in refusing to do your duty as team captain. That is all there is to say about that.


The steaks that I broiled for dinner turned out well so I probably could learn how to cook if I had to. I served steak for dinner when I invited my co-worker Brenda and her husband Doug Hunt for dinner one evening. I don't suppose that Doug Hunt would be related to my distant relatives, the Hunts who were from Northern California. The thought never even crossed my mind. We don't really know anything about my Dad's Uncle Eugene and his father Clarence Henry Hunt (1893-1955) born in Iowa, died in Susanville, Calif. All we know is that Eugene married my Dad's Aunt Mary Olive and they were missionaries in Venezuela for many years. They left the AG and turned Christian Missionary Alliance which was their choice but not our choice. The Alliance is very small and not Pentecostal anymore so if we ever did see them we would probably never really talk about religion because we don't really understand what their problem is.

That was such a depressing movie that I saw over at Brenda and Doug's place. It was about two sisters and their guardian. One of the sisters went to high school and got connected to social workers and had her guardian reported to the authorities. The other sister and the guardian fled from the house that was raided by the police and social workers and rode the rails out of town. And that was the whole story. So depressing.

Not My Fault

It's not my fault that the Wicked Witch Con Artist is targeting me with her high-powered connections for some vague mysterious reason, something like she really hates my guts and is just too chicken to come right out and say it to my face. How much more convenient to hide behind the system but I really don't care that she hates my guts. I just am who I am and her hatred is just part of the system, something to be ignored or just tolerated because obviously I myself, only one person, can't change the system. All I can do is remind her that she is not my counselor anymore and I never called her for counseling to start with so how would she know anything about me unless Wicked Witch Counselor Sue Watkins can't keep anything confidential. I never expressed a desire to commit suicide but I might as well commit suicide if I am going to talk to a counselor like nasty horrid monster Sue Watkins because obviously everything I say will be twisting in the wind soon after.

Pot Party

I certainly don't know anything about pot use in my high school. I am not sure if there ever was any of that but there was that sick smell that makes you wonder about them, not that I would go around accusing people without really knowing anything, unlike some other people I can think of. It just makes you wonder, I mean, all these weird clues. Anyway, I was never at the party so I don't know. I vaguely remember saying something like this to someone like maybe Sharon. Anyway, I can't be expected to talk about something that I don't know anything about which is why I don't really have anything to add to your amusing TV parody, thanks anyway. I am referring of course to the beach party which we passed by on our way to youth camp. They certainly were a rowdy bunch, that's the only thing I can say for sure about that.

Cash Crops

Speaking of cash crops, it is interesting to note that the biggest cash crop in the United States actually is not eaten or drunk for nourishment of the body but rather smoked to get high. Pot tops the list, with corn only second, as the nation's biggest cash crop and yet no politicians have as yet dared to pin that name on their foreheads by designating themselves the "Pot Party" activists. Perhaps they would not want to be taken for Pol Pot (1925-1998), the Cambodian Maoist Revolutionary leader. And anyway, if they did it that way they would be laughed to scorn and handed over to the FBI for processing as illegal drugs are not legal in the eyes of law enforcement authorities, at least not at this time. How much easier for them to obsfucate the truth behind the "cash" crop issue by hiding behind a veil of genteel respectability, sipping their choice of Earl Grey or Latte Deluxe while the growers and consumers of pot burn out their brains in a mindless hallucinatory daze and damage their own genetic makeup due to the nefarious effects of smoking pot. Interesting that Obama's recent presidential pardons were granted mostly to persons jailed for participating in the illegal production of illegal pot. Why do pot growers deserve a presidential pardon, one might reasonably wonder, and not the purveyors of other illegal substances and materials? As long as they are pardoning pot, why not pardon opium as well? Thus, it is reasonable to wonder what the Tea Party really stands for and who really belongs to it, at least in my opinion.

Tea or Coffee?

Yes, it makes no sense at all. Why would the United States ever have a political party named after "tea" which is a beverage that we don't really drink all that much anymore, especially with all this fake-tasting artificial stuff. There is also coffee, soda, etc. Americans probably drink more coffee than tea statistically speaking although there are those individuals who prefer tea. It's a personal thing, we understand. However, our fortunes here in the U.S. were never based on the production of tea. It was the British Empire and its colonies whose fortunes more often depended on the production and consumption of tea. Neither were the fortunes of the U.S. ever based on the production of coffee. Latin America is where the coffee is grown. Obviously the Latins probably would not be friends of the Mormons who often abstain from drinking coffee for religious reasons. Here in the U.S. we are only the consumers of tea and coffee. We are expected to drink coffee or tea or something until it comes out our ears and yet we get no profit from that. Here in the U.S. we are blessed with the best agriculture in the world, our farmers keep our grocery stores abundantly supplied with vegetables, corn, wheat, etc., and yet we are expected to have a political party dubiously named after the British cash crop "tea." Would not the "tobacco" party sound more American? But then the U.S. Surgeon General would have objections. If we had a "coffee" political party it could also perhaps be alternately named the "Hispanic Race" political party but then that would sound sort of racist. So why would we have a Tea Party either? And who are these mysterious "Tea Party" activists? British colonialists who want us to buy more tea instead of coffee? Perhaps these are British and Hispanic colonists would like to divide the U.S. plantation into two halves, the white and the browns. Yes, or something like that. Truth be told, the average American voter is just a consumer of tea or coffee and doesn't really have a clue what these mysterious "activists" are doing behind the scenes. Scary.

Reading Materials

Yes, it is true that when I was renting an apartment in Central Florida for two years the persnickety landlords charged me a fee for not passing their inspection for messiness. The biggest problem actually was the huge pile of reading materials, books and magazines, that was accumulating by the side of the bed and which was cited by them. So, like, is there some reason why I should feel guilty about reading a lot because, well, I always was too intelligent to waste my intellect on the intricacies of landlord-tenant laws and relationships and the way they have nothing to do all day other than sit around gossiping about their tenants? So, like, I guess this qualifies me as unrepentant in this regard. And I happen to remember my co-worker, the other reporter Brenda, talking about her own messiness and she made it sound worse than me so basically I don't feel very guilty about this. Some landlords just don't understand and besides they will use any excuse to enhance their own economic situation at my expense so it's not worth arguing about.

Coffee and Sugar

Coffee and sugar are two commodities grown in El Salvador although probably more coffee than sugar. I don't know very much about that as we were a missionary family and never involved in the farming issues, unlike the coffee barons, possibly the Hills family who apparently also moonlighted as the sellers of paint. Anyway, obviously sugar is grown right here in hot and humid Central Florida so sugar is a domestic internal issue although also imported whereas coffee is probably not much grown in the United States and mostly all imported for our consumption from all over the Third World where salaries of those poor pickers of coffee beans are so low that you would freak out if you knew but they are used to living like that so what are we supposed to say about that? It is not like we have the power to make those decisions anyway. If the people want to stock their shelves with coffee, then they will continue to fund living expenses of thousands of dirt poor people. But if one prefers to drink soda then also one is funding the living expenses of thousands of dirt poor people who harvest the sugar cane or else the sugar beets here in the U.S. or perhaps in the Caribbean or Russia. Yes, I suppose that it was sort of weird for me to be living in a country where coffee is the main crop for both export and internal consumption, a place where coffee is drunk for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and all of the time, and yet myself not really like coffee very much and preferring rather to drink soda or whatever else is available but not for reasons of boycotting or having any awareness of the coffee barons. I just don't like the taste of it very much. It's a personal thing. We always drank iced tea at our house with our dinner. I don't really care that this perhaps bugs the coffee people. It's a personal kind of thing, my decision not to drink coffee. I am not saying that the People of the Republic are wrong to drink coffee if they so choose but there is no law in this regard, only some persnickety people who are actually trying to make a stupid point about other beverages that I also choose not to drink. So fine, be that way. However, I think that these people should remember that I am not a mere cup of coffee nor am I a spoonful of sugar. I am a human being just like everybody else who is appalled at your draconianly stupid tactics.

Sword Play

What a joke, these violently militant Methodists daring to accuse me of living by the sword. I was only playing a theatrical role when I did the role of the captain in the musical play "The Stranger," unlike some other people that I can think of. That's really not who I am. My personality is actually nothing like that. They must have me confused with someone else nastier than I am. Like I was saying, I am not really interested in picking fights with people and going around trashing people the way they do, they knowing exactly who they are. Like I was discussing with someone in fourth grade, perhaps whiny Alexandra, about that storybook found in the school library, I am not that girl from the South who moved to New York and found that her maliciously gossipy way of trashing people and tearing them down behind their backs was not considered acceptable behavior by the cool and sophisticated girl she met in New York. She learned right away that this type of nasty gossip would not be accepted in New York. In our fictional tale, the New York girl always managed to avoid saying anything bad about anyone and always benefited for it and for that reason brushed the southern girl aside. Obviously I was born out west so Alexandra is way out in left field if she thinks she is talking about me. I never drew a picture of a southern house with a front porch and hammock as any kind of personal memory expressing homesickness for the South as in the story because I was never from the South. I don't remember anything about Alexandra now and I never did see the musical "Oliver Twist" and couldn't care less. That was a movie she saw with my sister only. I don't remember it because I didn't go there.

Louise Caskie?

I think her name was Louise Caskie although I am not sure. Susie might remember. Louise was the person who wrote the lyrics to the school song for San Salvador Christian Academy. Louise made her poem singable to the tune of the Jamaican national anthem which is where Louise had previously lived before going to El Salvador. That is almost the only thing I remember about Louise. You could always ask Susie. Susie probably remembers more about Louise than I do because that was the year that I was either on furlough or otherwise at a different school so I really don't remember the Caskies other then a couple of things that Susie said and I don't think I have a copy of the lyrics to the school song. Maybe Susie has that but I don't have that.

Thursday, November 17, 2011


It is odd that so many people are talking about Mark Davis. I don't know anyone by that name. I am vaguely aware of someone over at a nearby church of that name but I never met that person and have no connection to those people. There is no reason for Mark Davis to imagine that he ever met me or that he knows anything about me or has any cause to go around telling lies about me when he knows full well that's not what happened. I just have no clue what Mark Davis' problem is and couldn't care less.


Yes, that was so bad of me at maybe age 12 to make my little comment about Aunt Judy's cranky colonel. It was so wrong of me to say that publicly even if what I did say was true in a manner of speaking. When will I ever learn my manners? Don't I know that we are not supposed to speak the truth and/or say what we really think about these people in these social situations in which we are absolutely on the losing end of the social and economic and political spectrum? It is necessary and good to remember that we must respect our elders at all costs no matter what. That is just the way things work when you are a minor.

That said, I do find it odd that this minor event is so engraved upon the minds of everyone in a way that means I will never be forgiven so it is futile and useless for me to apologize even though it has been a long time since I was 12 years old and I don't recall saying anything else about the colonel as I never had occasion to read the diaries until recently so did not know very much about those people. I am apparently a chosen target of these contentious objectors from the military who are always looking for another reason to object to me even though I don't know anything about it. It's just a matter of policy I suppose, a mandate from on high. If only suicide were legal, but it's not so I drudgingly plug away at this apology in a manner of speaking and yet without any desire to bother trying to have relatives in the future, thanks anyway. There are some things more important than them, believe it or not.


I know that I should not say anything personal on the Internet, but in case someone wanted to know, it is no secret that my Dad's Aunt Judy was a batty old witch in a manner of speaking. Her divorce and second marriage to the colonel really confuses the picture. We were not military people (the Butterfields being an exception to the rule, not that there was ever a rule about that) in China. This is not said to criticize the military, or to make any pretense of ever having declared ourselves to be pacifist non-combatants (not to be confused with the Hammonds or some other colleagues of my great-grandparents who were conscientious objectors), but because it just doesn't have very much to do with who I am. Most of us had come out of from among the dead mainliners in response to the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, the invisible church of the saints redeemed by the blood the lamb which is not necessarily defined by the four walls of institutional religiosity, and yet Judy's offspring somehow got confused and went backwards. It is unfortunate, then, that Judy's mainlining offspring, the Hunts and the Hiatts, have way more money and influence than their insignificant opinions deserve, at least in our opinion, in a manner of speaking, sort of, if you know what I mean.

Unanswered Questions

Yes, there is no need for me to say anything about Stephanie and her problems. If Thomas Hills really wants to know more about that, he can always ask his CIA buddies who work for the government and I imagine they will tell him everything they know which is probably a lot more than I know or else they probably know where to find the information he is requesting. Obviously I would not be a great source of information about anything given that I am not in a good position to do that. If you asked me as a friend and classmate and fellow patriot then I might tell you what I know out of the generosity of my heart or else just in the way of self defense and proving my non-involvement and do not know anything about it but if Thomas is not wanting to be my friend and just being pushy and belligerent, then I don't have to put up with his rotten attitude. I feel myself under no obligation to vote for his political boondoggles, thanks anyway.

Yes, what a joke, patronizing witch Stephanie Share pretending to be a nice person. Just because she is actually from the U.K. was not the reason that most people in high school were scared to death of her. She was just weird. That was it. She was very weird, always yapping loudly and saying the weirdest things. She did not know that she was not supposed to do that but still I for one would not be interested in joining her in whatever she was talking about. I personally don't have nearly as many problems as Stephanie Share and would prefer to keep it that way, thanks anyway. I don't think that Stephanie was ever aware of my existence or ever knew a single thing about me. That is how motormouths are. They just talk all the time so they never learn anything about the people around them. They just cannot stop talking long enough. I don't mean to be mean but that is just the way things were.


Yes, that was a lovely novel by Eugenia Price set on St. Simon's Island, Georgia, in which the wealthy lady gives a gift to her friend, a crystal bird, as a symbol of their friendship because it reminds her of her friend's lovely free and soaring spirit, or something like that. No one ever gave me a crystal bird. However, I personally don't need that stuff cluttering my life so I really don't care. It would just get too expensive if I had to keep up with the Prices. Besides, I am really not related to the Price family even though, well, there might be a connection somewhere on the family tree but too remote for me to know about this or care about finding out who those people are. After so many generations it doesn't really matter that much anymore, at least not to me. However, in my great-grandmother's diaries we did learn of the existence of Nellie Ermina Smith (born 1897) who was the daughter of my great-grandmother's cousin Arthur D. Smith (born 1869) and who married Chester Arthur Price (1894-1956). I know nothing about those people so I can't really say much about them. Someone in the family might remember them but I am not that old, obviously.

Heather's Box

Yes, I think I did sign Heather's box or whatever it was. I was about seven years old and this was at a missionary service during furlough or actually maybe at the restaurant where everybody had gathered after the evening service had concluded. Heather Greisen was older than me, maybe three or four years older although I'm not sure, and our parents were missionaries itinerating to go overseaas, mine to Central America and Heather's to Hong Kong. I never heard much about Heather after that, just that they went to Hong Kong and lived there. So that is about all I remember about that. I never saw Heather again so cannot really comment on the box or what she thought it meant. It doesn't really mean anything to me and I personally really don't care if I never see Heather ever again, especially not now, not after all this tempest in a teapot. I don't appreciate my life being turned into World War III. It's just ridiculous.

Term Papers

I did not go to college in order to post all of my term papers on the Internet for the amusement of empty-headed bimbos like Rebecca. That is why it is very odd that bits and pieces of term papers that were never published and exist only in copies in my notebooks, some in storage for years, seem to be circulating in the gossip circles of the trailer trash ladies. They take things out of context. They obsess on insignificant details. They jump to unwarranted conclusions. Who would even know about some of these things except my professors and, anyway, don't they have thousands of other students to pick on? Why me? College is supposed to be for career preparation, not to provide joke material for these obviously failed comedians. Nobody is laughing, at least not me. I don't find it funny to have all my stuff put through a shredder. I am too old now to beat them up so I will need to turn these whiny people over to the police for processing and possible jail time, hopefully, as per the judge's prescription.

I can see where my master's thesis is vulnerable, a copy of it sitting there on library shelves for all to see and pick apart. With all of my enemies, I cannot afford to have another one of those things sitting around for my enemies to tear apart, one might think.

While visiting California I did notice there on the library shelves a copy of a paper written by Lois Cooper (Stewart Williams) written back in the 1930s or 1940s. I did not read it and don't remember what was in it. I just saw it and thought, oh, I remember this person. It is probably a good thing that there is nothing of mine at the California library. It could get expensive for the howling of hyenas of California to drive across country just to glimpse my lousy term paper, so hungry are they for further ammunition in their demented quest to hold me up to ridicule. They are just too much, a mob grown wild and unruly that is way out of line in my opinion.

Yes, what is this deal that my relatives have worked out behind my back wherein I get nothing and they get to pull all kinds of strings behind my back and turn my entire life into a huge joke? I think it stinks. One would think that my wicked aunts and uncles would be ashamed of all their little "keeping up with the Joneses" tricks but they are really not nice people so no one should be surprised at their unbelievably rotten attitudes, their hatefulness toward me, and the way that they conspired to utterly destroy my life, as if there were anything "better" about them. Ha ha ha! Was I supposed to sign some paper signing everything over to them? No, it doesn't work that way. They just stretch everything out waiting for me to die and then, since I have no children, they can redistribute everything without setting aside a portion for me and my family as I have none. So I am stuck and I have no one to blame but myself because I fell for their stupid trick. What was the apple for? The lure of knowledge. My eyes will be opened and learn that there was nothing of any significance to discover in the first place. They think that I should have known better than to attend college. Women in their family are supposed to drop out of college at age 15 to get married and start having children. That is all there is to life, just sweeping floors and burping babies and nothing more. In their book you cannot be married with children and also have a college degree. It is just one or the other. Of course, there are exceptions but you have to have money to make exceptions. Otherwise, it just isn't going to work.

Trailer Trash Dismissed

Also dismissed are those two trailer trash ladies. I am sorry if I made some stupid comment about them maybe 30+ years ago although only based loosely on something my mother said but my life really cannot be held hostage to those two horrible single ladies. If they were such nice people why have they always be so unfailingly mean and nasty to me although mostly behind my back? Obviously there is something wrong with this picture and I'm not sure what or that I even care to find out why. I just want to get on with my life and forget about them, drop them off at the airport and bid them adieu and maybe we will all be able to get along in heaven because we will all be perfect then. Until then, so long, farewell. I have other things on my mind now and not enough time for doing what I want to do which will not include rolling around in a trailer trapped for the rest of my life with her or rather them, they know who they are. Sorry but I just don't have time for the trailer trash ladies. Time is too short.

Cat-Holics Dismissed

The Cat-Holics are now hereby dismissed and fired are instructed to exit the building forthwith. This instruction natrually includes Uncle Joe's three idiot children. Obviously they have no place in this discussion. Neither is this a subject for discussion with Jews and Muslims because even though they are against idolatry they are not believers in Jesus so they wouldn't really understand the context of this event. No, this is a discussion amongst Protestants. Centuries ago the Cat-Holics forfeited their right to say anything about idolatry and preferred to populate their houses and churches with statues of all kinds and sizes in representation of all kinds of personalities, mostly dead ones ,although Jesus is alive having risen from the dead but he probably doesn't look like the he is being depicted by them, all pale in a coffin toted around city streets in some poverty stricken Third World countries. Thus it follows that the Cat-Holics would have a totally skewed opinion of this event, meaning the 1914 occurrence in China in which my great-grandfather trampled upon the family's household idols. This is a really complicated subject and I cannot have the crazy Cat-Holics clouding the issue. The poison of the Cat-Holics is a worse remedy than the ailment it purports to cure. The Cat-Holics would prefer to distribute the idol poison throughout the globe so that everyone can get accustomed to living with the culture of idolatry. However, the effects would be more damaging than you can imagine.

Bear Story

When I was in first or second grade at the Christian School in San Bernardino, Calif., there was a special presentation by a guy who told a story maybe about a bear or something. Only part of the story was told, ending with some sort of dilemma for the protagonist of the story, and we children were asked to write, invent, create, make up the rest of the story. What would you do in this given situation and/or dilemma? I don't remember what I wrote. I have no idea. I wish now that I could remember but the answer does not come to mind, probably because my answer was too stupid or just not worth remembering or being brought to mind so many years later. I cannot imagine why this would matter to anyone at this present time. If Debbie Lange has some bone to pick I really don't care to hear about it. I am not going to respond to that sort of badgering. Enough said.


I really don't remember Ralph Macias. I think that maybe he was a student at the little school in San Salvador during a time when I was at the American School so I only remember some things Susie Stewart said about him, something about him liking to do science experiments and blow stuff up with his lab kit. Some guys really get obsessed with science kits, usually guys who would not in a million years think of saying hello to a girl like me so it is not like I would really remember him.

Ok, so I just checked Wikipedia and learned that Bianca Jagger's maiden name was Macias. However, I have no connection to those rich people. I also can't say whether Ralph was from Nicaragua. You could always ask Susie if she remembers.


Oh, ha ha ha! Hispanics have a lot of nerve criticizing me for racism when they are probably the most intolerantly racist people on the planet. Hispanics are so utterly shameless in the pridefully racist way they imagine themselves more virtuous than white people, more given to have family values, more Christian when actually they are mostly nominal Catholics who rarely set foot inside a church, more honest and moral when actually they are adept liars and easily adapted for gang warfare and drug trafficking, more loving of children as long as the children are Hispanic. We are not hugely impressed with the pride of "La Raza." I think that if pride is going to be roasted, that "La Raza" should get its fair share of time roasting over the open fire, at least in my opinion. There is no reason for us white people to wallow in self pity just because the "La Raza" people do not understand us. There is no reason to feel sorry for "La Raza" when their culture is the product of their own flawed character and lack of integrity or other issues beyond anyone's control, not because of any malicious intent on our part. If the selfish greedy "La Raza" ruled the planet nobody else would get a chance, now would they? Why would we choose to have all these vultures sitting around waiting for us to die so they can take everything? Obviously, there is a reason why "La Raza" should remember its place, because it is not all about them.

No More Carol Long

When will Harold Mintle finally get a clue that I am no longer working for him? That ended a long, long time ago and I also no longer have to put up with obnoxious Carol Long as my supervisor, praise the Lord. Just getting out of reach of obnoxious Carol Long was reason enough to quit my job oh so many many years ago, although getting out of reach of Harold Mintle also was definitely a motivating factor. It would help if I had some other option to turn to that does not involve any input from obnoxious Carol Long and Harold Mintle not to mention some others who drive me nuts. Still, not having to tolerate Carol Long is worth the heavy cost.. Carol Long is the worst kind of Old Maid I never wanted to be, hugely overweight, obnoxiously overbearing, treats me like a robot, always shoveling more busywork into my inbox, always picking at me for various personal issues that I would rather not discuss like for example that I talk to myself and the guys were complaining about that because they walk by my desk and I am typing and mumbling to myself about something as if it is a crime to think, always dumping multiple projects on my back and then two minutes later asking me if everything is done yet, always explaining the most obvious chores to me as if I were her third grade student from when she used to be a teacher maybe. I would rather kill myself than hear another word from Carol Long/Harold Mintle, a horrible nightmare of a job that was. I hope that I have made myself understood.

Yes, what is Mark Triplet's problem anyway? A guy who cannot even count the number of kids on the bus is obviously not someone whose opinion matters a whole lot at least in my opinion and has no place to be tossing darts at me. Why should I pretend to be fooled by Mark's fakiness in pretending to be nice to me when actually behind my back he is trashing me all over the place? I am not so stupid as not to know that. Mark is just pretending that he has to be nice to me while telling everybody else some other crackpot story that has nothing to do with the reality of my miserable existence. I only lived less one year in the state of Missouri and the misery of that year follows me around everywhere I go. I don't remember what I did there in the State of Misery that could deserve to be so maligned by those horrid people: Pam Hart, Judy, Karen, Mark, Marge, Amy, Don Triplett, etc. I don't even want to hear another word from those whiny obnoxious people. Life is too short to let those whiny Nicaragua dogs rain on my parade such as it is, i.e., my miserable existence.


Ok, so maybe I do have a little bit of Irish in me, maybe. It depends on how you look at it. My great-great-grandfather on my mother's side was Abner May (born 1848 in Coosa, Alabama). Now the surname May might or might not be Irish. In fact, some sources say it is derived from the Gaelic meaning the descendants of Miadhach. The name Miadhach in the Gaellic means 'honorable' or 'proud.' However, it is sad to note that the Abner May from whom I am descended died young when he was struck by lightning. I never knew this story until recently. I only learned this story about the lightning strike maybe a year ago because my mother visited some relatives and asked a lot of questions that we never thought of asking before I started doing my family research. Otherwise, I really wouldn't know anything about that or think to ask. It appears that my great-grandmother Ida May is said to have been raised by her grandmother while her mother, Betty Mitchell, married someone else and had another family somewhere else. We don't know those people and have no clue about them, probably nobody important, just some superstitious cretans. All we know is that my great-grandmother was known to refer to herself as Ida Bell May but not because she was ever related to the Bells or had that name in her family tree but apparently because she was born in Bell County, Texas, and that somehow was a way that she differentiated herself, apparently although I am not sure why. Ida May was known to attend the Baptist church and taught Sunday School there even though her daughter, my grandmother, picked Methodist not to be confused with the Presbyterianism of my grandfather. Anyway, the Smith kids have the same May connection that we do so I don't see where are adding anything significant to this discussion.

I personally was born in the month of May (Incidentally, my sister also was born in May but I came first) but that does mean that I was ever struck by lightning although all this induced mental confusion does make you start to wonder. Actually it was Shannon Reese, a Baptist MK, who was struck by lightning in Guadalajara, Mexico, although it did not kill her. She survived. She was very lucky in that regard. However, I do not recall anyone making an issue out of Shannon. Only if you are killed, I suppose, will they say it was an act of God. If you survive, the doctor will get some of the credit, probably.

Anyway, lots of people die from lightning strikes every year. According to the National Weather Service about 55 fatalities attributed to lightning strikes occurred annually between 1981 and 2010 in the U.S. However, only about 10 percent of people struck by lightning are killed. Another 90 percent survive with injuries and disabilities of varying degrees.

Your chances of being struck by lightning in any given year are one in 1 million and in your entire lifetime one in 10,000. The odds that you will be affected by someone who was struck by lightning are one in 1,000. Thus, it is best not to go running outside when it is raining and thundering but sometimes people forget this bit of common sense.

So anyway, this omen perhaps does not portend well for the Irish in me, one could say. On the other hand, the odds are good that it really does not make a bit of difference. May is as good a month as any for me to be born, I suppose, if I really must exist on this earth for the purpose of being kicked around by whomever, I am not sure who or why. If I had millions in the bank I could hire P.I. and lawyer to sort this out and/or sue someone but alas I have nothing to go on.

However, it perhaps should be noted that it was actually my grandmother who wrote to the The Delineator, a New York-based women's magazine that apparently focused onsewing and sewing notions, submitting her entry to some sort of article which apparently advertised a personality analysis based on a picture. This is always a bad idea, thinking that you can judge someone's personality by their appearance. As they say, you cannot really judge a book by its cover. This might be a useful exercise for novel writing and fiction but not for assessing the reality of everyday life or one's vocational aptitude as judged by some total stranger isolated in their hermetically sealed ivory tower.

My dear Miss Strickland:

We are returning the picture sent is in answer to our article in the May Delineator.

Type #1 shows rather a forceful character; good executive; would do well in domestic science, and trained nursing. Type #2, rather unusual business sense; forceful; would suggest training for business, if circumstances warrant. Type #3; less forceful; more affectionate; a great deal like type #4 on page 16 of the May Delineator.

Very truly yours,

Church of God

Since when do the nasty wicked dogs of Tennessee have anything to say to me? Is it my fault that my idiotic distant relatives, probably those dippity dumb Barth cousins, switched over only recently to the Tennessee denomination because they were too obnoxious to get along with the AG probably, not that I would know anything about that? The Church of God TN has no clue about who I am or what this means, obviously, or they would not go around ranting and raving in a way that reveals their true nature as being ignorant hicks from the sticks. I suppose you must carry a big stick to keep from tripping over your twisted feet but your opinion is only that, your opinion and not something that matters to me. Get over it. I do wish the obnoxious Tennessee liars would go back to the hiding in the woods and stop bothering me because there is nothing that I can do for them and obviously they never did me any favors.

Lori's Opinion

Oh yes, that was Lori Kelderman of Michigan who was saying to me that she found it appalling that people like Molly were picketing abortion climics. Molly would probably end up spending a lot of time in jail and live the rest of her life with a long criminal record that will circumscribe her choices for the rest of her life. Lori thought it was terrible. I think that Lori has a point. Molly's plan of action would not be my choice, certainly. Of course, I personally think that Lori has a lot of nerve telling Molly what she can or cannot do when obviously Lori stole Cindy's husband Tom, having dated a man she knew was married and then hanging on through the divorce, even if Cindy was a terrible person if you believe what Lori said that Tom told her about Cindy. I really don't want these people like Lori latching onto me this way. I don't really want to be associated with whatever Lori thinks she stands for, personally, because really just having been in the military does not guarantee virtue of character, obviously, as we see from Lori's lousy example. Anyway, I also don't like the idea of Tom's lousy ex-wife Cindy, who lives with her mother, latching onto me this way. How is it that Tom's ex-wife Cindy is sending all these signals to me, recriminations about my being complicit in Lori's stealing of her husband, when all I did was listen to some things that Lori said. And who is this worthless Tom anyway? Tom is nobody as far as I am concerned. Tom would not be my choice, obviously, so I don't want to hear another word from Cindy or Lori on this subject matter. I don't like these people latching onto me this way. I never met Cindy, only once met Tom maybe and I only knew Lori for a short time and then started distancing myself because I don't want to be associated with that.

What to do

Yes, it is possible that I might have said something to Cheryl about the interview with Pat Buchanan's intern and what I might or not might do about it. I really don't remember. I did my homework and I never thought out that again.

Thursday, November 3, 2011


I am vaguely remembering that at the time I was studying journalism I interviewed someone who was working in journalism as an intern or else maybe full time for that famous columnist Pat Buchanan. I cannot remember what her name was. I am not sure whether I still have the article I wrote or whether it was published or not in the Standard. Maybe someday I will have time to go through all the stuff and locate the item and figure out what it was. I think that the idea came from Cheryl who at least knew of her because otherwise I was not aware of her existence. Maybe Cheryl would remember her name. So I called her and she talked about her job and what she does and things like that. She mentioned that she was being teased and/or harassed by Pat Buchanan, I am not sure which. They were doing a show on harassment and also joking about the subject behind the scenes precisely at the moment that I was talking to her on the telephone. She seemed to think this was funny. I am not the police so not sure whether that would be something to report or just extraneous background noise. There was of course, as always, the temptation to do the kitchen sink story and dump every detail of the interview, the entire contents of the reporter's notebook, into the story but I did not do that. I was not exactly sure what to do with the harassment thing. To include the harassment thing in the story would take my story into a whole other direction not foreseen or planned by me. This was a story about journalism and the things that people do in the world of journalism in their careers as journalists, not about harassment which is not included in the prescribed job duties of journalism as far as I can tell. So I did my homework assignment and have nothing else to say about that. I personally would be leery of applying for a job working for those Irish Catholic bulldogs of New York, especially after my experience working with Pat Buchanan, so obviously I did not take that any further.

Nasty Caroline

Wow, that was so nasty of hideous hag Caroline Kennedy-Schlossberg to send along such a nasty message. As if I ever sent a ringy-dingy to that Irish bootlegger pretentiously pretending to represent Americans like me. Someone really should return the favor because, you know, if I really wanted to hear from Caroline I would go out and buy the book but obviously I am not interested. You can search the evidence from now until kingdom come and never find a book by Caroline at my house. I probably would never even bother to drive to the library to read for free anything written by Caroline Kennedy-Schlossberg, thanks anyway. I have enough things to think about without these rich Democrats meddling in my personal life and stomping all over and crushing what little I do have, thanks anyway.

Lady Bird

In July of 1968 U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson visited El Salvador. Interestingly, at about that time one day we were driving near the U.S. embassy there in San Salvador and we noticed a huge crowd of people blocking traffic. My parents seemed to know that the U.S. president was in town. We walked over to the fence surrounding the U.S. embassy and were standing there with a lot of people looking at President and Lady Bird Johnson leaving the embassy. Lady Bird looked over and noticed two little redhead girls probably standing out from the crowd looking at them through the fence surrounded by a lot of brown children. Lady Bird made a signal and a photographer was sent over to take pictures of the people staring through the fence at the Johnsons. Thus, it is possible that somewhere in Lady Bird Johnson's photo album there is a photograph of two little redhead girls behind the bars of the U.S. embassy face looking with curious stares at the goings on in that place. Why my parents did that to us I could not possibly explain. It is just a part of the historical records now.

I am good

I am sinful and yet I am good. When God created me as the woman to complement the man he said that this is good. Sin marred this creation and yet I am good in a manner of speaking. This is not to say that there is a law requiring me to compliment certain twerpy little brats who make my life miserable, referring of course to those guys, even though they are good, too. It is not necessary that I explain to them that they are good. They already know that. And anyway, aren't we all good? Everything that God created is good. There is nothing wrong with a lot of good things that I can do or could do or could have done but it's too late now anyway. It was the wily serpent who turned my good and gave it to the bad. I let the serpent run my life and the serpent stole everything. Still, I am not any more of a bad person than you. You can do a lot of good things and still be bad as far I am concerned because you do nothing that is good for me. Thus, you are bad in my opinion. So there.
