Good day and welcome to my blog! Some days the topics are as random as they get and others I am very driven to box up a specific point (of view) and deliver it to my readers. Today is one of those such days!
Hello and welcome to my blog!
I hope your November concluded well. There are 21.5 days until Christmas! I have done zero shopping for gifts. In my defense I was hoping my luck/skill with the lottery numbers (Powerball) would improve. Alas no dice thusfar, so I shall be forced to acquire awesomely appropriate gifts on a minuscule budget…same as before.
For those who are interested, check out my Twitter account (oohaw94) or Facebook (scott.latta.7) or my two podcasts on the Podbean app (The Freak Show and Sports
Have a great Monday and we will chat again soon!
In a recent podcast (The Freak Show on the Podbean app) from this month, I mentioned a “B” horror movie from the early 1980’s featuring thousands of worms taking out their aggression on the human race when a downed power line sends immeasurable amounts of electricity into the wet ground. Little did I know, until I Googled it, but this movie was actually from 1976! Sorry for the inaccuracy!
Good morning! Today is Wednesday, October 17th. Officially today is day number 25 of Autumn or Fall if you prefer. Pumpkin spice everything is all about and the temps are finally in the 40’s-50’s-60’s. The days are getting shorter and trying to escape the warm bed in the morning to stumble about in the darkness to get ready for work is becoming quite the chore. My mental outlook is getting so critical that I’ve started throwing in a couple of dollars to the Mega Millions lotto crazy pool – presently the Jackpot is estimated at $868,000,000 for the Friday drawing. With that kind of money I could finance a Pitbull music video or something as equally frivolous! Continue reading “Blogging during Autumn 2018”
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.

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”
Good morning and welcome to June 5th 2018. What’s news and interesting? Do you know Bill Gates? Asking for a friend.
You really thought I was going to say cheese didn’t you? C’mon be honest. To be above board here, I thought about it. Continue reading “Cutting the…”
Good afternoon and welcome to the last Tuesday in May 2018 of your lifetime! I tried to come up with something clever and catchy for the title but as of the writing of this part…I hadn’t tapped into anything yet. Maybe it will just come to me. Time will tell.
Does this happen to you? You wake up and your entire day is gone. When I say gone I mean that as soon as you wake up, the entire day is already planned and accounted for from start to finish. That is me some days and those are difficult days to muck my way through in my opinion. On a more stressful scale, I can only imagine what professional athletes or musical performers go through with waking up, working out, doing necessary obligations and then performing at the end of each night. Now multiple that scenario by months and you can kind of see why Britney Spears decided to go all psycho self-barber all those years ago. It can be a hollow feeling sometimes even if the day is filled with enjoyable activities. I like having a chunk of time or an entire day where there is nothing really imminent; I relish those valleys of activity. Continue reading “The day is over before it has begun…”
Today is Thursday morning and I am surfing online trying to find a reasonably cheap but long term writing computer. No gaming, just something to plug away with to type up my stories (in Microsoft Word) and maybe have a browser window open in the background if I need to research something quickly. Continue reading “Laptop for writing needed”
For giggles I have been making ‘picks’ based on the betting odds for the NFL for the last two weekends (Wildcard and Divisional rounds). Here are my results for the last weekend and my predictions that should equate to the two teams who will appear in the Superbowl (with Justin Timberlake at the halftime show). Continue reading “NFL Predictions – AFC/NFC Championship Weekend”
From time to time I do some sports flavored pieces. As I do not really gamble (because I am not good at it or lucky), I do not bet on games (yes, I’m looking at you Pete Rose!). But I do like to guess what I think will happen. So with that nugget of useless info dispensed, listed below is my Tweet to a fellow sports friend of The Go Show Podcast and my opinion of the outcomes of the four games listed. Feel free to review, comment, laugh, poke fun or be amazed! Continue reading “NFL Playoff Weekend – January 6th & 7th”
Holy moly! Have you checked out the Mega Millions and Powerball Lotto’s? One is $440,000,000 and the other one is ‘only’ $343,000,000! I could probably take the summer off and find myself with that kind of moolah. Incidentally, I am invested in both lotto jackpots. As part of the workplace group and also I have purchased tickets as a solo person. Let’s take a quick look to see how these jackpots would break down in the group setting, as an individual based on the lump sum payouts and also with the 25 year annuity plan. Up first in this tale of the tape is Mega Millions. Continue reading “Lotto Mania 2018!!!”
