A Few Sentences Is More Than A Couple

December 29, 2017

Still not feeling 100% today, but since I’m capable of stringing more than a couple of sentences together, I feel the need to demonstrate that capability.  Yesterday’s joke/not joke was, of course, inspired by the fact that I saw The Last Jedi yesterday, so people can now stop asking me if I’ve seen it yet.

Yes, that really is all I’m planning to say.

(Jokes aside, I’m deliberately taking it easy today, but the fact that I’m in a snarky mood is a sign that I’m on the road to recovery.)



I Used To Think That Talking Politics Or Religion Was The Worst It Got

To the list of things I avoid discussing if I want a civil conversation, I am now adding Star Wars.

I’m Hoping To Feel Better For Real Soon Though

December 27, 2017

If the brevity of my recent entries haven’t already clued you in, I’ve been . . . otherwise occupied lately.  Some of that, naturally, has been due to the holidays, but mostly it’s been due to a cold that has proven, for lack of a better term, “scrappy.”  By my count I’m on my third round of “I thought I’d beaten this thing already!”

And Some Of Their Arguments Were Pretty Good Too

Sometimes I like to remind myself that some people used to passionately argue that powered flight was a scientific, or at least a practical, impossibility.

Is it just me, or when someone compares you to your star sign, does it just not feel like a compliment?

Fun-Weird Is Fine, Just Not Weird-Weird, Okay?

December 22, 2017

However you chose to observe/celebrate this time of year, my advice is whatever you do, unless it’s your deliberate intent, don’t make it weird.

Running Late Today

December 21, 2017

How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?

A Weird Fact To Suit My Weird Mood

When using an electric razor to shave your head, it sounds disturbingly like you are grinding your skull away.

This Just Struck Me As Funny

December 19, 2017

I’m aware through my own experience that, first of all, the fans are so passionate, they care so deeply — sometimes they care very violently at me on Twitter.

But Where’s The Fun In That?

December 18, 2017

Recently I started watching Ash vs Evil Deadnothing particularly surprising in that fact, but it did give me an odd moment when I went to make a phone call right after watching an episode.  For one moment having “Evil” on my contacts list took on a whole new meaning . . .

(His actual name is “Evel,” presumably after Evel Knievel, of course.)
