Defined by Major Life Trauma

I'm still getting over that Santa Claus thing, forty-three years later. Why oh why did I have to press my mom on the issue?

I'm still getting over the breakup of the Beatles, thirty-eight years and eighteen days later. Should I blame Paul, Yoko, or both? It's killing me.

And then there's that clown/Satan link, which I'm just sure is somehow tied to J. Edgar Hoover's fondness for wearing women's clothing.

Please now, be nice and do not forward this to the Federal Aviation Administration's Aeromedical Branch. I don't want to have to answer additional questions when I renew my medical certificate . . .

They only know about your special training with Muslim extremists. They're pretty understanding about that. I'm sure they'll be just as understanding about your damaged psyche.

Debby, I only infiltrated that one terrorist organization because I'd heard they made the best hummus.

Damn maybe I shouldn't have put that on my crazy test. Enjoy your blog, and looking forward to flying out with you one day.

It was Yoko's fault! (IMHO)

Check out my 360... the "gathering" this weekend was a blast!

As long as you have a logical explanation you're golden, Hal.

Hal, your comment to Debbie was hilarious!
And you should blame J Edgar Hoover for the breakup of the Beatles.

Hal Johnson said...

Yep, Uncle E, I'd heard that hummus was "to die for."

This terrorist thing shows signs of getting blown way out of proportion.

Hi there, I bounced over here via Debby's blog...

I have read a few of your posts. You are quite articulate. The post about being a dad/becoming a dad...very touching. You've expressed the full gamut of emotions....it's a kaleidoscope...

I totally understand your not getting over the things you've listed. We all carry that kind of baggage. I've still not gotten over the removal of Pierce Brosnan as James Bond....I won't even consider going to a Daniel Craig Bond movie...

Still not over the demise of that great series, "Unsolved Mysteries" (thank God for youtube and its U.M. video clips).

Still not over the death of Princess Diana. She was such a sparkling light...the world hasn't been the same since...

I have enjoyed my first visit here...
