Accidental Black Friday

There is no denying that I’m an early bird. As someone who grew up in the Midwest, I’ve always kept an early schedule. Beyond that, my Autism contributed heavily to my insomnia. Today, it fits perfectly into my old man schedule. We had our Thanksgiving on Wednesday, and it went fine enough, outside of myContinue reading “Accidental Black Friday”

The Past: I Am SO Over It [and Why the 80s Were SO Good]

I was cleaning house and moving a few rooms around a few days ago. While doing this, I found another box of photos that I’d thought had been lost. These images go WAY back in some cases. I’ll post a few of them here. Some of the photos were very similar to photos I alreadyContinue reading “The Past: I Am SO Over It [and Why the 80s Were SO Good]”

Rebuild Your Identity [It Might Stink]

INTRODUCTIONDoes YOUR identity STINK? If you’re an America, then it might. How a human identifies plays a crucial role in the survival of any person. It’s what drives them to do certain things.

The Phones Are Listening

INTRODUCTIONI’ve known about this for a very long time. For a while, it was a suspicion of mine. This is because they’d try to be discrete about how they delivered things to the phone based on what they’ve heard. From 2017-2019, I spent a good deal of time at home. But I was fortunate enoughContinue reading “The Phones Are Listening”

Three Types of People Worth Remembering

INTRODUCTIONThis is something that I’ve been meaning to write for a while. My dilemma on this was whether to start off positive, or to end positive. Ultimately, I’ve decided to start off positive, since those are people deserving of my praise. As for the ending, let it serve as a warning. Let’s GOOOOOOO!!! 1 ofContinue reading “Three Types of People Worth Remembering”

Americans Believe Lots of Stupid Things… and It’s Getting Dangerous

My formal education was abysmal. Grade school was a rehash of things I already knew by the time I got there. As for junior high and high school, I was putting more time into protecting myself from bullies and shitty teachers than actual learning. I learned more during my first quarter of college than IContinue reading “Americans Believe Lots of Stupid Things… and It’s Getting Dangerous”

The Funny Day My Vision Went Bad

INTRODUCTIONWhen I started shaving my head in 1998, I noticed that some people I worked with were afraid of me. Maybe it was because I’m a big guy. I’m not really sure. But I did have an idea to try to deal with it, about a year later. I went to a eyewear shop andContinue reading “The Funny Day My Vision Went Bad”

AT&T Can Stoop Low

I have written about AT&T before, specifically about problems in the past related to their horrific customer service and how abusive they had been to me. The last piece I wrote, linked above, focused on their very aggressive push to get me to sign up for their DirecTV product. This particular AT&T anecdote involves aContinue reading “AT&T Can Stoop Low”

Dating Websites Are Scammy

INTRODUCTIONThe other day I wrote about what I might put if I had a dating profile. The idea of meeting someone online is nothing new to me. I’ve met a fair number of women online, most of which were in a state of long-distance, so things didn’t work out. The most recent one divorced herContinue reading “Dating Websites Are Scammy”
