  1. True Men

    I just love this line from the Red Hot Chill Pepper song of the same name:

    True men don't kill coyotes.

    This is just an awsome verse that comes right before the line:

    Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
    He can taste his blood

    Working here at the computer store is an interesting hobby, and for a disabled man like myself, a ray of sunshine in a dark world. I can work here and they fully understand my limitations, and then work with me as I endeavor to climb that mountain that all depressed people know so very well.

  5. A School Blog
