Too Busy ... and I'll pass on the shrooms dude
I am short handed and the trip back east, buried me. I am still digging out. I have been doing some work at home, but that needs to come to an end. I generally don't make a meeting on Tuesday, but I think I will tonight.
In related news ... why spend all that time working steps and stuff. The Economist Magazine of all places reports (sorry premium content) that researchers have determined that people who take "magic mushrooms" have legitimate spiritual experiences ... AND for months afterwards report increased satisfaction and improved outlook on life. The Shroomies are no doubt tickled pink and purple and yellow and blue with the free publicity.
Anyway ... I knew it was coming. Toward the end of the article was the requisite claim that this research could have application in the treatment of Drug Addiction and Alcoholism. HaaaaHaaaa!! (note the use of double exclamation marks). And those old timers thought AA has changed now. Wait till the newcomers start rollin' up in here fresh off their detox trips.
No time for that now ... I'll get back to you. ;)
- God's Grace
- Brushing my teeth in the morning (with my own toothbrush no less)
- Going to sleep at night (with my own pillow no less)
- I get my spiritual awakening the old fashioned way ... first I hit bottom, spend years in pitiful and incomprehensible demoralization, stoop so low as to go to "AA", bang my head against the wall, drink coffee, smoke cigarettes, talk crap, finally get a sponsor, listen to crap, work steps, balk, work more steps, balk some more, make others work steps, listen to them balk, one day turn around and say "hey this ain't so bad ... in fact it's pretty cool"... No, I'll pass on the shrooms dude :)
