New to Vox.

I signed up for a Vox blog today, just because I thought it could be the right community to push my music and other art into. I don't plan on doing anything cool with it right now, but I'll definitely be investing some time into it later on.

Check it out.

(And add me to your network if you've got an account.)

More drunken photos.

It really wasn't my idea to grab Vanessa's boob.. I have my boys to thank for that one. This was near the end of the night, so I was too far gone to care.. I look terrible! lol

Joe and J. I love these boys. They keep life interesting.

Those Hippies Knew How to Party

I came across a great article today- Dancing Naked in the Corn. Woodstock was way before my time, but I can relate to the whole festival experience- people coming together, the music, the parties..

Three interesting Woodstock facts (from the article):

  • A hit of Acid or Mescaline cost $4 and an ounce of Marijuana cost $15.
  • Only 33 people were arrested on drugs charges yet 500 freaked out on bad LSD trips.
  • 450 cows mixed freely with the campers for 3 days.

Plug-in air fresheners are (not so) dangerous..

* * Edit: Damn, I'm a sucker for all sorts of info, FALSE stuff included.. Thanks to Nathan Pralle for this link. * *

So I received this email today about house fires and air fresheners..

I'm sure many fires have been caused by plug-in air fresheners over the years due to disregard for general safety procedures with outlets, so it probably could happen, but no, not without a little help.

The email:

A man and his wife learned a hard lesson this week.

Their house burnt down.. nothing left but ashes. They have good insurance so the house will be replaced and most of the contents. That is the good news.

However, they were sick when they found out the cause of the fire. The insurance investigator sifted through the ashes for several hours. He had the cause of the fire traced to the master bathroom. He asked her sister-in-law what she had plugged in the bathroom. She listed the normal things....curling iron, blow dryer. He kept saying to her, 'No, this would be something that would disintegrate at high temperatures'. Then her sister-in-law remembered she had a Glade Plug-In, in the bathroom.

The investigator had one of those 'Aha' moments. He said that was the cause of the fire. He said he has seen more house fires started with the plug-in type room fresheners than anything else. He said the plastic they are made from is THIN. He also said that in every case there was nothing left to prove that it even existed. When the investigator looked in the wall plug, the two prongs left from the plug-in were still in there.

Her sister-in-law had one of the plug-ins that had a small night light built in it. She said she had noticed that the light would dim and then finally go out. She would walk into the bathroom a few hours later, and the light would be back on again. The investigator said that the unit was getting too hot, and would dim and go out rather than just blow the light bulb. Once it cooled down it would come back on. That is a warning sign.

The investigator said he personally wouldn't have any type of plug-in fragrance device anywhere in his house. He has seen too many places that have been burned down due to them.

* * Again, the info in this email is false. * *

I'll definitely be forwarding this link to the person who sent the email. If you receive something similar, you might want to pass it along, too.

What to do?

What do you do when you're stuck in one place, living above 'tenants' that make you miserable?

The catch is, they're the landlord's family and are taking advantage of her, and she doesn't want to see it, let alone manage the issue, and it's hurting everyone.. No apartments that allow pets are available within our price range. And I am unable to pick up another job.

How do you deal with such a situation?

And how do you keep your composure when things get ridiculously stupid?

Megadeth and Cristina Scabbia?

Megadeth and the Lacuna Coil frontwoman collaborated for "A Tout Le Monde (Set Me Free)". Great song, but this is a big change for Cristina.. Wow. I really can't say whether I love it or hate it just yet.
