Today I will eat me rage. Today I would like the world to go away. Today I would like somebody to bring me a solution instead of a problem. Today I would like somebody to tell me what they CAN do instead of what they can’t.
I think John Steinbeck may have been a Dapper Dan Man.
I went across the street a short while ago to purchase a carbonated beverage. As I rounded the corner at the end of the candy aisle and approached the cooler there was a small young boy of about 3 to 4 years of age standing there. While I obtained my beverage he was attempting, without success, to open the other cooler doors. I smiled and said hello he returned the greeting both verbally and in...

I’m leaving in a little while to hang out with Erin who I haven’t seen in a looooong time. I’m kinda stupid excited about it and a little embarrassed about how excited I am by seeing these people I haven’t seen in a while.

erinmargrethe: claviusrobinsky: Before I had attained the legal drinking age for my state of residence my friends and I would have Erin purchase 40’s of Old E at the local Grocery Store. We were also not ones to have a lot of money and our purchases were made with coin usually equally to the weight of a 40oz bottle of Malt… OH GOD THE MEMORIES and the ziploc bags full of dimes - I hate you...

When I ask questions it’s because I want an answer. Sometimes it’s to confirm suspicions. Sometimes it’s out of a desire to educate myself. Sometimes it’s just to be courteous but regardless of the situation or circumstance I always want to know the answer or I wouldn’t have wasted the time asking the question.
Somewhere something is not connecting.

definitelynotmoe: There have to be quite a few musical artists out there on Twitter and Tumblr. There are also quite a few that have had their cancer demons on here. Well my thought is this: a compilation album of original music by us here. A collection of our songs available to purchase online (maybe digital AND Cd) with all proceeds going to cancer research. This isn’t completely selfless....
Sometimes I think hurtful terrible things. On a few occasions I’ve come close to eliminating my self restraint and acting on them. This scares me.
Dear single parents,
No matter what the reason for being a single parent you are all awesome. The both of us are beat to hell (in a good way) by our kids. If I was flying solo I would probably cry bloody tears each day.
How come women are never accused of thinking with...
xntrek: aerissa: We do, sometimes. Well, I do. And I don’t believe for one second that I’m alone in doing so. You’re not. I know this for a fact. Not just because my Mrs does. Women are (usually) better at letting the second thoughts that originated from their brains to enter the conversation Men do not have enough blood to power the brain once their penis starts the thinking Men are...

I’ve lost count of the weekends and the miles but let it be known that I have been burning up shoe leather and tire rubber at an alarming rate. I love the road. I’m a road warrior but I’m getting tired. Stationary may be something I need to try for a little while.
‘Surprised’ is not a word you can use now that you’ve...– Me—to my employee. (I may be the most sensitive boss ever)
I just read this word (and would reblog/link to the post this was from for context but I’m working from my blackberry)……and I think it’s my new favorite word. I believe I’ll try it in varying situations and contexts until I discover it’s best use.
All of this imaginary boyfriend/girlfriend/lover business day has reminded me of something that for at least one of my friends may be better left unremembered….(cue flashback) Sometime around 1997 or so we were sitting in the apartment of our only friends apparently capable of not only being in a relationship but also co-habitating. I don’t know how the conversation began or even...

This is why
The Missus recently discovered the world of blogging. I’ve tried to convince her to open a tumblr for herself but she still isn’t sure. I think she should because this is what she does: “I have a jewelry box that I have had since I was probably 16. I love it. It is small, it can only hold a few items. It is a rectangular box that sits upright. It is green and inside is a fairy...
I'd like to love you all the time.
The Missus and I were conversating (yes I invented a word) about our relationship tonight and she said that she’d like to love me all the time and not just some of the time. I’m sure reading this sounds much more horrible and depressing than the comment actually was. It was more of a statement on the nature of marriage/long term relationships. When you first meet someone and are...
I have a love/hate relationship with politics. I consume information about what’s going on locally, regionally and nationally. My opinions on what I think would be the best path are very deeply seated and reasoned out in my mind. I don’t post my opinions here no matter how tempted I am because I believe we should all make our own choices and it is everyones responsibility to...
Through dirty glass.
We all grow with dreams of a miraculous future in which the mundane, challenging and difficult becomes easy and work becomes less work. The curse of technology begins with the intention of making life easier so that we have more time to do the things that we love. In reality it makes us more efficient and we in turn can do MORE work. Granted, there are many benefits to becoming more efficient....
I have now been to the Gym 1 day in a row. Not a great workout but it’s a start. Now you can just call me fat instead of Fat and Lazy.
Wearing a Dress
To the best of my knowledge I’ve only worn a dress once. I was a junior or senior in High School and me best friend was with a girl who lived in Fresno. On occasion we would alind ourselves sitting in her room talking about The Cure and Punk Rock. She would smoke clove cigarettes and we were smoking Lucky Strike non-filter. I don’t know how it happenedor why I thought it was a...
The Missus: I went through a Bob Marley phase.
Me: I went through a Jacob Marley phase.
The Missus: What the hell is wrong with you?
Me: What...I really like his work.
The Missus: If I didn't love you, we'd have problems.

So many have followed in the last couple months and, considering all that’s been going on with me, it’s been impossible to keep up or check out, like, anyone.

freddashdog asked: The pics so far are really nice, where do you get to the trail head for Mt. Whitney on the west compared to the east? How often do you go up there? Do you live close to it or like me and have to make a good drive over there?
Please place today......
in the totally useless column. What a waste of a perfectly good Saturday. The only redeeming factor was having my yung-uns around.
These are the times.....
In which life would be infinitely more tolerable if only I could get drunk. Pesky sobriety.
Ahhhhhh Labor Day Weekend. I need to go on record by saying that I’m not a fan of 3 day weekends. Holidays for me equal headaches. Special operating plans, stress and for some reason never being able to make the plan we set out for. I would be much more delighted if we could chose, individually, our 3 day weekends so that I could enjoy a day away from my labors and not have to share...

I’m 33 today and instead of doing something exciting, I woke up in a Holiday Inn and am now sitting through a presentation on improving Data Standards.
