making a difference

A man goes out on the beach and sees that it is covered with starfish that have washed up in the tide. A little boy is walking along, picking them up and throwing them back into the water.
"What are you doing son?" the man asks. "you see how many starfish there are? You'll never make a difference."
The boy paused thoughtfully, and picked up another starfish and threw it into the ocean.
"It sure made a difference to that one," he said.

An elephant stepped on my foot
endeared_one
So Ben drove over my foot yesterday. yah.

The weird thing is, I always wondered what it would feel like to have your foot run over.. I have wondered this for years!

This is what it felt like... smooosh-tingle-crunch-hot-cold-burning-ache-weird. yup.
I was putting the pea into her carseat when he turned on the car. It had been left in gear and he didnt notice so it lurched forwards right ontop of my foot! I was not only strapping Mariella in, but was also on the phone with my mom, so she hears this: "AHHHHHHHHGGGGAAAAA, reverse! Ben....reverse the car, it is on my foot" And I have thrown the phone Mariella starts crying cuz I screamed in her face, then Ben starts freaking out because in his mind he sees himself running over Mariella not me! So it has been sitting on my foot for a good 6 seconds.. which by the way, LONG TIME TO HAVE A COUPLE THOUSAND LBS ON YOUR FOOT!! so he backs off of it, jumps out of the car to see if I'm ok, I find the phone, tell mom I'll call back. and limp to the passenger side.

for the whole day my foot burned, crackled, went cold, felt rushing blood to weird areas, and ached.

This morning my ankle is swollen and I am pretty sure I have at least one broken toe.

the weirdest thing is, whenever I would wonder what it was like to get your foot ran over, I would also think, there is no way that could conceivably happen!

yup, this is my life people.

Here is what he [John Mayer] has to say about porn. Here is a blurb.



MAYER: I’m a self-soother. The Internet, DVR, Netflix, Twitter—all these things are moments in time throughout your day when you’re able to soothe yourself. We have an autonomy of comfort and pleasure. By the way, pornography? It’s a new synaptic pathway. You wake up in the morning, open a thumbnail page, and it leads to a Pandora’s box of visuals. There have probably been days when I saw 300 [naked girls] before I got out of bed.

PLAYBOY: What’s your point about porn and relationships?

MAYER: Internet pornography has absolutely changed my generation’s expectations. How could you be constantly synthesizing an orgasm based on dozens of shots? You’re looking for the one photo out of 100 you swear is going to be the one you finish to, and you still don’t finish. Twenty seconds ago you thought that photo was the hottest thing you ever saw, but you throw it back and continue your shot hunt and continue to make yourself late for work. How does that (porn) not affect the psychology of having a relationship with somebody? It’s got to.

PLAYBOY: You seem very fond of pornography.

MAYER: When I watch porn, if it’s not hot enough, I’ll make up backstories in my mind. My biggest dream is to write pornography.

PLAYBOY: Masturbation for you is as good as sex?

MAYER: Absolutely, because during sex, I’m just going to run a filmstrip. I’m still masturbating. That’s what you do when you’re 30, 31, 32. This is my problem now: Rather than meet somebody new, I would rather go home and replay the amazing experiences I’ve already had.

PLAYBOY: You’d rather jerk off to an ex-girlfriend than meet someone new?

MAYER: Yeah. What that explains is that I’m more comfortable in my imagination than I am in actual human discovery. The best days of my life are when I’ve dreamed about a sexual encounter with someone I’ve already been with. When that happens, I cannot lay off myself.
