    ROCO Friday – The Rain

    As in this video that YouTube doesn’t allow to be embedded but I think Daily Motion does: That’s right. Today’s wisdom is brought to you by Mr. Oran “Juice” Jones. When I was growing up, my mother and I LOVED this song. It was just so cool and so funny and probably so true. (It was 1986, gimme a break, huh?) So let’s see what Mr. Jones has to say for himself: Tossing and turning another sleepless nightThe rain crashes against my window paneJumped into my car didn’t drive too farThat moment I knew I would never be the same. Now here you are begging to meTo give our love…

    ROCO Friday – Running Down A Dream

    Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers – Runnin’ Down A Dream All hail the Friday ROCO congregation! The good Reverend MiamiShyner is pleased and blessed to have made it through another week. Let the congregation say ROCO! I am also blessed to have such a wonderful congregation. I may only see you once a week, but know that I appreciate you and keep you in my thoughts. There are some days when I feel that this song is just appropriate. Many days on the way home from work, we open the song: It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down I had the radio on, I was driving But long…

Not real, let’s get married and spend the rest of our lives together love, but OMG you took away a pain that’s been haunting me off and on for the last 15 years love. My relationship with chiropractors has been on-again/off-again for the last, oh, 20 years or so. I really like the way I feel when I’m totally in line and functioning at 100% but I just haven’t always had the money and/or insurance to keep…

    ROCO Fridays – Welcome back, Kotter

    After a long hiatus, the Reverend MiamiShyner has returned to her flock to once again spread the message of ROCO Fridays. *cue music* Let us reacquaint ourselves, shall we? Please turn in your hymnals to page 305 for responsive reading. Rev: And as your boss sayeth unto you, “Can you stay late today?” Let us respond with a phrase fitting the Sweathogs… Congregation: Up your nose with a rubber hose! Rev: ROCO! And whosoever wishes to leave early today shall make it known to all. Congregation: *hands raised energetically* Oooh! Oooh! Oooh! Rev: And should that one annoying co-worker request that you do his/her work before you leave, the congregation…

    Flying high again!

    Ladies and gentlemen, MiamiShyner is hitting the skies tonight and will be flying high again. That’s right, after a way too long hiatus, I’m heading back to the rig to fly tonight. I’m sure I’ll be just a smidge rusty but that doesn’t really matter since I’m not allowed (no one is unless you work there) to fly without the safety lines at this particular rig. Does it make a difference? OMG yes! I can only assume that it is equivalent to the difference in feeling with/without a condom for guys? Unless that’s just one big load of bull, lol. What do I know? I’ve been with the Lovey for…
