Does anyone care??

Haha, no, I’m not whining about getting attention this time.  I’m listening to the Cranberries and the last lines she sang as I started this blog were “Does anyone ca-aa-aarre?”

I’m really liking my new banner.  I can’t tell you how much time I’ve spent fiddling with different ideas and designs, trying to come up with something clever or catchy that also says something about me or my personality.  Really.  I can’t tell you.  I have no idea.  I just know it was a long time.  I thought a picture of my face would be a nice touch… so I played with several ideas using pictures… but finally I decided that the title “Life” and the words “and then some” just really didn’t need to be there… so I took them out, and I think it was the best choice.  Of course, then I was just left with a picture of my face and nothing else… so I wanted to put some random things in there that had something to do with me or my life.  I first thought of pieces of photos, but that thought left in a hurry.  Words.  Had to be words.  Long story short… I used words.

It’s really humid again today… well, it’s rainy… so obviously it’s gonna be humid.  It’s not a cool rain, though.  Most of the morning it was nice and cool, but now it’s quite warm.  Y’know that feeling after you take a nice hot shower in an unventilated room, and all the steam makes it nearly impossible to dry off… not to mention the heat causing you to sweat, which just adds to the moisture…   well, it kinda feels like that, except that I’m dressed, and not in an unventilated room… and I didn’t just take a shower… and I’m not you.

I actually had a shower like that when we were up at June Lake during my camping trip.

 


Boredom!

Okay, so it’s not like I have nothing to do.  I have plenty to do, but most of it is outside and it’s just too hot for that right now.  I can do some of it when it cools down.  In the meantime, I’m quite bored.

So, what to blog about.  Hey, I’m gonna fish for comments here, okay?  Ready?  Here it goes…

Please leave a comment to this blog so that I know who reads these.

There.  Done.

 

Sooooo maybe I can whip up a random little poem off the top of my head.  Let’s give that a shot.  I’ll write it about stuff I see on my desk!

A stack of hard drives, mostly old.
A roll of TP, ’cause I have a cold.
I have a lamp, for when it is dark,
And a cup full of Sharpies for making a mark.
A microphone, for talking to friends.
I like how it has a long neck that bends.
Of course, can’t forget, my keyboard and mouse,
And my speakers you can hear anywhere in the house.
Other random stuff, some of this and some of that.
I keep my ring here, because my finger’s too fat.
My bluetooth headset, which I rarely use.
My two flat monitors, because I like dual views.
Some vitamin C and a bottle of water.
The remote for the cooler, for when it gets hotter.
Some graph paper here, for taking a note.
An inhaler for opening up my sore throat.
My sunglasses, which normally go on my head.
A mechanical pencil with .7mm lead.
There’s more on my desk I can tell you about,
But I’m over this poem. See ya later.  I’m out.


Vitamin C for the Soul

I’m really not sure what the subject of this blog post is supposed to imply.  It’s really random.

I unhid most of my facebook friends a few minutes ago.  Yes, I know ‘unhid’ isn’t a real world word.  Anyway, I consider my Facebook homepage / news feed to be MY little section of the internet and every once in a while a friend will begin to post things that really bother me in one way or another.  It could be profanity, or it could simply be something I don’t agree with and certainly don’t want to argue about.  Seeing these things really stresses me out, believe it or not.  Well, they’re not going to stop just because of me, but they’re still people that have some importance to me so I don’t want to block or delete them.  In such cases, I simply hide their posts from ever appearing in my news feed.  In fact, if you’ve not gotten any comments from me on anything you’ve posted for a while, then you’ve probably been hidden.  I generally comment on a lot of things.  It’s what I do.

I’ve realized that only a few good people are compatible with my neurotic personality.  It’s probably why I have so few facebook friends.

Ah, I just got an email…

…meh, it was just junk.

I really don’t know what else to say right now.  Thanks for reading.  Bye.


I want to write a poem

A giant box of toothpaste
One less than three plus four
A calculator tells the time
He’s knocking on the door
I made myself a fishie
Don’t tell yourself a lie
Three keys on an onion ring
A heaping pot of pie
Riot in the streets
The story of a chair
More beautiful than chins
But uglier than hair
I like the way you walk
There’s a speaker on the roof
Today’s the day for daily stuff
That movie’s just a spoof
What’s the deal with Edgar
Email is my friend
Don’t look now but here it comes
The beginning of the end
