i was trying to do a volunteer work exchange program or thinking about trying to join a hippy commune because i want to live ethically and do good things.


a couple weeks ago my francophone excon cokehead roomate offered me 100 buck to watch me fuck a crazy girl....i'm a very laid back guy but i never gave more strongly opposed 'no' to anything like that offer in my life before.....looking back i should have done it. thats good money for a half hours work... im sure it would be awful the first time to have a guy watch you screw but new jobs always suck. im thinking about fucking for cash, i might very well become a whore

although this might sound like its got no impact, i whack it at least 5 times daily.
you'd think that this is meaningless, but think again.

by whacking it, firstly i become part of an audience that demands porn, and so i help in giving a job to all those porn stars, camera guys, lighting guys, mic guys, directors, sound engineers, bed makers, etc that are involved in the making of even a sub-par porno movie.
after whacking it, i have to clean myself and wipe off the monkey business, and so i need to get some tissues or toilt paper. by using that paper im in fact killing entire forests all by myself (again, 5 times a day, yo) and therefore i help the poor people who work in those woods in sub-par conditions and payment and i in fact HELP them and MOOOOTIVATE them to get out there and do something meaningful with their lives. like i do.
this also affects the crops and therefore the world economy, so you should be thanking me really.

I'm coaching my son's soccer team. We did defence drills tonight. Our defenders are basically our less aggressive players and by the end of training, I saw huge improvements in their confidence and far fewer goals scored by our strikers. So that's good. Because we lost the last game 10-1.

Amazing how many of them have to be told to keep their eye on the ball, and the near immediate improvement that follows. A lot of them are really bright and able to focus, but just haven't known what to focus on, before now. It's a very life-giving feeling, yelling directions sternly - and seeing their little faces concentrating so hard. And then cheering for them when they get it right and watching their faces light up with confidence and pride.

Most coaches are Dads who work full time and turn up to run the boys around the pitch and get them to shoot goals...but actually our club's A team in this age group has been coached by two mums who watch youtube videos to learn what to do. Nobody volunteered to coach our team so I figured I'd give it a go, given what I knew about the A team, and also because I played soccer for 5 seasons in my youth. So I researched drills online for a couple of hours, and picked ones that I thought would work well with our team and the research is really paying off. It's a lot of fun, actually. I didn't expect that.
