Slice Of Life

Slice Of Life, is a Weblog (BLOG) that I write, in which I try to tell some sort of story about something, or someone in my life. Sometimes it's happy, sometimes not, sometimes informative, sometimes...... HA, gotcha, did ya think that I was going to say not? Don't know me very well, do ya? :=) I will try to update the BLOG from time to time, whenever I can.

My personality is outgoing, I use to be a wallflower, until I realized that it was all the outgoing people that were having the most fun. It was a tough conversion, but nobody I know today would even remotely consider me to be a wallflower. Basically, when I was young, my parents taught me that if you work hard, you can accomplish anything. I haven't quite found the "anything" part to be always true, but it has inspired me to always try to do, and be, my best.

Janet's "Wardrobe Malfunction"

Did you see Janet's "performance" at the SuperBowl Halftime? No, I'm not interested in what happened, that's been beaten to death, what was interesting to me was to see the huge difference in character shown afterwards by the participants. When I was in the military, I met up with what could be described as some of the biggest liars on the planet, so my B.S. detector is highly tuned. That whole weasel Timberlake thing about "Wardrobe Malfunction", and then last night him saying "I didn't know anything about it, I'm shocked", wouldn't even fool a moron. If it's one thing that really pisses me off, it's when someone like Timberlake is lying to me... So badly, that not even an idiot would believe it, and even in the face of the obvious, they still maintain innocence, even when they're the only one who believes themselves. In contrast, Janet didn't try to excuse anything, or blame it on somebody else, or try to B.S. everyone with stories about "I didn't know". Nope, she simply stood up publicly, said she messed up, and was very sorry. Let the chips fall where they may. Everybody makes mistakes, the real measure of a person's character, is what you do afterwards. On one hand, one of these people has gained my impression, that they are a low life, lying weasel, interested only in saving their skin, and not to be trusted, while the other, has gained from me something very different........ Respect. I know which one I'd want as my friend.
