1 Year Anniversary of Journaling

One year ago today I decided to start keeping a journal. It has become something I am in throughout the day. It has evolved into a place where I keep everything important about that particular day. I am so happy that I decided to do...

The Summer Slow Down

I used to think that the Winter time was the time that we slowed down and weren’t as productive as at any other time of the year. I actually think the summer is the least productive time. I’ve gotten so much less done this year...

Weird Series of Events

I would start this sentence with “so” except that every time you do, I think a small child dies somewhere. I was on the fence about going to my brother’s funeral. Why? There are any number of reasons but the main reason is that there...

Services Update

It looks like I am going to attend the services for my baby brother because in this instance, it would seem completely wrong for me not to attend. My brother and I weren’t really close in the latter part of his life but we were...

Obituary Madness

I find it immensely entertaining to read the obituary pages of my local newspaper. Why? Well, because of all of the bullshit in the short articles about each person. I’m not talking about wild claims of how good of a person they were. No. I’m...

Big Toe Fun

I was in a very big hurry to get my Amazon packages off the front porch when (much to my surprise) I slammed my big toe into a section of the house and broke it open. It hurts. It doesn’t hurt as much as I...

Mother’s Day

Found a nice history of Mother’s Day this morning. I’m pretty sure I’ve always believed that Hallmark created it but they did not. They just profit from it which went against the wishes of the person who officially founded it in the U.S. I live...

Unrecognized

This is the first time that I can remember that I don’t recognize any of the names on the famous birthdays page of the newspaper.

Tiredness

I am tired. That is why you are only getting a drive by post today. The only thing I can complain about today is the weather. Only the afternoon weather. It rained all of the way into work and I fucking loved it. Ok. That...

That Smell!

I am riding back and forth to work again on the bike. I absolutely love it. While riding home this afternoon after it had been raining on and off throughout the day, I couldn’t help but notice how much the outside smelled. Bad. It smelled...

Pool Area Project

My illustrious pool project for 2021 is almost completed. The first year I used an inflatable pool that costs a whopping $10-20 dollars. I bought more expensive inflatables since then but for the last couple of years I have gravitated back to that original $10...

Book Review – Sort Of

I’m not yet going to give details of the book but I’m listening to a science fiction nugget. I like the whole idea of it. There are parts that don’t seem to make much sense. For one thing, the main enemy is missing the motivation....

Travelling

I am doing something today that I rarely do. Travel. I am totally ok with staying in my own area and minding my own business as long as I can write, I’m happy. Sometimes, I have to get out of the comfort zone. Hopefully, it...

Bad Decisions

When you reach the age of 50 or thereabouts, you begin to look on the world with different eyes. The one thing I have seen recently is just how much young people make really bad decisions. At 50, your decisions are based on a lot...

Baby Bottle Service

How about your favorite coffee beverage served in a baby bottle? No. I am not making this up. From my daily newspaper… I’d link to the whole story but since it’s a paywall, I’ll refrain.

Phone Calls

I don’t like to talk on the phone. Anyone who knows me will tell you how true that is. I hate making phone calls. I’d rather text, IM, or do smoke signals. I’m saying that because my house mate has been on the phone with...

Why Don’t Men Care

Perhaps, I should relabel this post as “Why Don’t Most Men Care?” What am I talking about? I’m talking about men who sit by while their daughters pose nude for magazines, pictures, or whatever. Think about all of the magazines with nude women in them...

Eyeliner and the Modern Man

You should not play with your daughter’s eyeliner. I don’t think I need anymore explanation then that.

Weird Sightings

This probably explains a lot of it.

Fake People

Let’s face the reality. People are shit. With that being said, it is little wonder why this story is relevant. Researchers at Netease Fuxi AI Lab and University of Michigan have recently created MeInGame, a deep learning technique that can automatically generate character faces by...

Hell Weekend Ends

Well, it was pretty exciting but the weekend upgrade thing is over. Well, for now anyway. I expect we will be still working on things for most of the week. Collective sigh… P.S. Yes. Nude girl jumping is appropriate.

Cancel Culture

I am surprised to see this from California. “Cancel culture and the efforts to silence differing opinions and voices should be a growing concern for all of us,” said state Sen. Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore. “A climate of intolerance has been established and has stifled...

Hell Weekend Begins

I guess another term for it would be major system upgrade. I’m not sure how much writing I’ll be able to do over the weekend but I am hoping to keep to the schedule. I’ve gotten a brilliant idea to write a screenplay for my...

Frickin Laser Beams

Looks like we’re going to finally get some Star Wars style weapons after all. CW lasers may be effective enough for now, but fall short of science fiction. They just aren’t capable of firing at that speed. While they can melt their targets, burn them...

Population Control

I just thought of a brilliant idea. How do you weed down the population? Float a story about the Earth being flat. The people that believe it… …they’ve gots to go! Like I said, brilliant.
