Good afternoon. So for fun I applied for an on-line writing position for one of my favorite baseball sites: http://www.mlbtraderumors.com. This site dishes on potential trades and all sorts of transactions plus perceived Intel on Major League Baseball teams. I must have made it through the pre-screener questions because they sent me the below items to answer: Continue reading “MLB Traderumors.com Interview Job”
Hello and good morning. Welcome to my informal, completely non-linear and non-episodic blog spot. First off, I’m going to say hello to my mom because she is directly responsible for this blog post entry. Early this morning she ‘shared’ to my Facebook timeline a link to a writing contest. The title of the online contest is simply: You Are Enough. This contest is being hosted/sponsored by the Positive Writer site (www.positivewriter.com) and offers prizes and other stuff too.
Good morning and happy Friday! Wherever you may be I hope that the hail falling from the sky is light and any angry birds you may encounter may only be digital things at your mercy. So for those of you wondering about my post title and how I came about it, I shall divulge its origin immediately. Continue reading “Why did the chicken cross the road?”
Good day! Thank you for reading today’s blog post or posts…depending upon how motivated I let myself get. For those intently wondering, there are still no leaked reports to the interweb about a possible Snakes on a Plane 2 movie script or Broadway hopeful play script. I’ve tried to leak one myself but the web at large has categorically rejected it. C’mon how hard can that script be to do? The first one got made and the premise there was toilet paper weak. Continue reading “August 2nd – The day after the 1st…”
Good morning and thank you for checking in on my blog today. Today I was in the public bathroom here at work and before you get that creepy vibe, it’s not going to be a clinical fact reporting detail of waste elimination volume, coloring or anything in that genre. Instead, I was amused by the interactions of a father (dad) and his 3-4 year old son, who did not let a second go by without rambling on at the mouth which most kids of that age seem to do. Below are a couple of nuggets out of that child’s mouth:
Child: Dad, what’s that smell?
Dad: We’re in a bathroom, what do you think that smell is?
Child: Smells like number two.
Here is what I posted on my Facebook account today for giggles:
Can anyone give directions to Braavos? Someone needs to travel there to begin training as a Faceless Man. Asking for a friend…
Good morning or afternoon or twilight or darkness hours or whatever suits your present time situation. We collectively have edged into the second half of the month of July. This year has seemed to fly by quite quickly. Sometimes that is a good thing. There are people in the world healing from sickness and injuries and of course time is needed for that process to move along. For those with accrual time off systems through their workplace, that is also good so they can get more time off or eek out the time left until their time off ‘bank’ is replenished. (Raises hand) This last one is near and dear to my heart I must sadly report. Continue reading “Dead Space Four”
Today is Friday the 13th. We have a weekend of leisure planned involving quasi-camping in a remote woodsy area. Probably do some drinking, engage in some adult shenanigans and play by the water. Seems like a great time, I’m sure nothing will go awry. Continue reading “Happy Friday the 13th (2018)”
Hello PBS fanatics!
Wait! I was kidding! Don’t go!
Good morning and happy post July 4th extended weekend shenanigans. To those people in my subdivision who waited until 10:30 pm last night (Sunday night) to exhaust the last of their July 4th fireworks stash, bravo. I especially liked their finale that wrapped up around 11:10 pm. Fireworks that screech and scream before exploding are always welcomed after 11 pm when I have already put the child to bed and there is a non-declawed cat sitting in my lap that is prone to being spooked easily. Again, bravo douchebags. Continue reading “Masterpiece Theater”
As I am sitting here listening to the Pandora Music app, currently set to ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Radio …I am being treated to a classic by Carl Douglas. Obviously I am referring to the biggest hit of his career: Kung Fu Fighting. Hard to believe that this song is more than 40 years old! Released to radio stations in 1974, it was his only #1 single. (They tried releasing it to Apple Music first but that wasn’t invented yet.) Stumped for another theme, his other single that year (Dance The Kung Fu) did not breach the Top 40 in the United States. Mr. Douglas was brought back to the forefront of all things Kung Fu in 1998 when Kung Fu Fighting was re-made for airplay by another musical group. That single only enjoyed moderate success in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
So let me throw out a hypothetical question: What if you were told you could not do the one thing you truly love to do anymore? It could be anything like… Continue reading “What if…”
Good day! Hump (not) Day! Almost to July! I CAN wait! Most likely I will not have to because time seems to move and lurch forward in chunks these days. But until then, cherish your June time!
About a week and a half ago I was sitting in traffic, minding my own business, when a random unprovoked thought occurred to me: Why is there no $25 dollar bill? A few of you might have just mentally said: What you talkin bout Willis? Continue reading “Currency Consistency”
Happy Friday and joyous Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Day to you! As most of the free world is engrossed with the FIFA World Cup (First In, First Asleep?), I was searching Netflix and Hulu streaming services for Jurassic Park or similar movies to have on as background noise at work. With the exception of the Lego version of Jurassic World, I struck out. For those regular readers of my blog, you already know my feelings on the Lego movies and their toys. Regular building block Legos are fine but all the Lego ships and beasts that just lose pieces or get de-constructed makes them be pointless in my opinion! And as far as the Lego movies go, just make them ‘real’ animation or don’t. There is no need to block the characters up in a Lego-like semblance – it’s not needed! Continue reading “Oh Captain, My Captain…GOAL!”
Good morning. It’s Thursday here, what about where you are? Over the last several weeks I have been modifying my diet in the wake of a pretty nasty case of diverticulitis. After the initial flare up hit and caused me to be hospitalized, I took to heart the need for a diet change and read quite a few articles on-line to try to avoid the severe discomfort and serious repercussions that could follow.
