People Places and Things

Recently, I have found my social calender filled beyond capacity. For me, going out on a Friday and a Saturday is busy. I usually don't go out at all. The last couple of weeks have found me interacting socially more often. I don't know what this means. It makes me think. Instead of enjoying myself for what it is. I start to ponder on things that were said and how they affect me personally. I don't know if it should be an issue. I try not to dwell on anything. I hate that I'm letting this get to me. That being said, I did have a bit of fun this weekend.

Horns and drums

Why can't life be more like horns and drums? Why did they have to go and complicate things? Who are they? The people that decided that being alive wasn't hard enough. Why do we have deal with the bullshit that life brings? Instead of struggling and getting depressed, we should have a recording booth. Throw on some horns and drums and we can empty our soul. Sing, rap, holler the blues. Instead we use Facebook and other outlets (such as this blog) to let the world know how unhappy we are with it.

Where there's smoke...

Today marked adult male milestone in my life. I always fantasized about starting a fire stranded on a deserted island or lost in the wildness. When I watch Man vs Wild or Dual Survival, I truly pay attention to their techniques. I really think that the tips I pick up would keep me and whoever is with me alive. I always considered the starting of a fire the most important aspect of survival. Fire means warmth and the ability to cook food and in the right circumstances drinkable water.

Low Class

The other day at work I orchestrated an impromptu social experiment. On Wednesdays we change over to new sale items. This means among other things I have to change the signs in the front case from regular to sale and from last week's sales to regular. When I'm changing the signs I noticed that the bone in pork chops sale price and regular price were the same. I didn't think anything of it. I just figured that prices had gone up. I cut extra pork chops since it was "on sale" The next morning they were all gone but 3. I then realized that sign was for boneless pork chops. This means that everyone bought the bone in because of the sale sign not taking into account the price was the same it always is.

Funk and Charity

Yo!! How everyone doing?? Can't believe we're halfway through January already. I'm loving this year so far. Things seem to be looking up in their own special way. Business is through the roof at work. I'm getting a lot of positive feedback from my superiors and I've scheduled a vacation for the end of March. I know it's not exactly like winning the lottery but they are steps in the right direction. I'm living my life by the day. Although I feel defeated at times, I do manage to redeem myself. I not so bad off.

Whack rappers and the demise of radio

Why do the things we grew up on seem better than what's out now? Nothing like those Saturday morning cartoons we watched as kids. Even the commercials were better back then. I guess every generation goes through the same situation. My parents never understood the music I listened to. The good thing is they influenced me so much that I listened to a lot the same stuff they did.

The Problem Is

What's that smell? I think someone is cooking beef downstairs. I have a slight discomfort in my side and shoulder blade so eating would be a bad idea. My wife is showing my daughter states flash cards. "Arizona!!" she yells. My wife just asked her if she knew anyone that lived in Arizona. She had a puzzled look on her face, then my wife said Spook. She responded with "Oh"

Day 10

Wow we're well into the second week of 2012. Hows your resolve doing? Did you quit smoking yet? How is the new gym treating you? I applaud you if your still on track with your New Year's goal. On the other hand if you quit, I still congratulate you for starting. So what you cheated. Try again. If you really want to change, it may take time. Nothing is as easy as it sounds. If it was that easy, you would have made the change a while ago. Now regroup and start again, I know you can do it.

Right click then click select all

If you figured out my clue then you should be reading this. I was bored and wanted to post something different. It's tiresome to write the same old 'woe is me' story over and over again. I wish I was a free spirited child again sometime. To run around, eat anything and enjoy the simpler things in life like a cheap dollar store pencil in a goodie bag. Life is too short to dwell on things I can't control.

Day 5

Today is the 5th day of 2012. How many of you have already failed to keeping your resolutions? I wonder how many people in the world already gave up on 2012. Well there's always 2013. I must say so far, I'm not content with my year. I've been looking for a positive thing to mark each day. I'm not sure that I am that optimistic. I can feel the depression when I'm home and even more when I'm at work. I think that I've come to a complete stop. I no longer want to continue with this trajectory. I have to change my fate for 2012 and subsequently the rest of my life.

What do we want?

WE WANT SEX was crudely scribbled on a poster board attached to a 2x4. Men of all ages, colors and creeds banded together. They were there to protest an injustice that married men have suffered since the dawn of time. The crowd was riled up. Other signs simply read "Suck My Dick!!" or "You said I do, so do me!!" Local news vans flanked the park on the south side. A junior reporter from Channel 4 had managed to get a protester to agree to an on camera interview. Judy Powers had started as a production assistant and now was sent on her first on air assignment. She was excited and ready to prove herself.

Day 2

I have nothing. Figuratively and literally. I've been trying to conjure up something to write about and just couldn't come up with anything. Earlier today I wrote 6 paragraphs and decided I didn't want to write that post and scrapped it. Now I'm sitting here realizing that I've arrived at a crossroads. It's the second day of the year, I have 363 days left to make this year worth it. God forbid I don't have any interesting to write in my year end recap at the end of 2012. I currently exist in one those perfect situations where billionaires reached the epiphanies that put them on the path to infamy.
