My Time in Politics

I had my stint in politics, where I was this guy on this thing for awhile. It was toward the end of something, and I was just filling in. Can’t remember exactly what it was called, except that we were wrapping something up. We finished up all this one thing then went on to the […]

Blog roulette

Blog roulette is played by opening your Favorites list in your browser, closing your eyes and clicking on something, then blogging on whatever you opened in your browser. You only play this if you made a stupid vow to blog daily until the end of the year. It’s a page from Ken Wilbur’s site. He […]

Life takes a holiday

What’s up with death these days? This whole vampire/zombie kick has me blowing chunks. I feel like one of those guys in the tales who goes to sleep for a century and wakes up and now death is good. I ain’t got nothing special against death. Being the philosophical type I understand there’s no life […]

Vow news

Ran a hardware diagnostic program on my computer yesterday – FAIL. It said the hard drive is about to crap out any moment. Wondered why things been getting hinky. Hoping that day isn’t today, but will need to replace the drive. Basically I’m wiping my computer’s brain. It will still work, there just won’t be […]

The Ding Dong Effect

After a scientific study of several long and arduous minutes, I’ve decided to call it The Ding Dong Effect. What happens, that is, when one does the same thing over and over, continually. This Ding Dong thing doesn’t just happen to me, I figured, because other people talk about what happens when you say the […]

Another bad thing

Okay, bust out the silver lining patrol, here we go again. You know that thing I spent 200 hours busting my ass on? Well if I’d known what I was doing, I would have realized almost from the start that it wouldn’t work. A bad file, completely worthless. Those entire three hellish weeks were nothing […]

A bad thing

Something bad happened the other day. And it happened over and over and over. There was nothing I could do to stop it. You see, I was in the middle of creating the Flash animation for my new logo. The Word Doctor, but we won’t mention him. As a Flash master, I totally suck. You […]

The thing about the thing

The thing that bugs me about the thing is that I only use it like once a year, so I have to relearn practically the whole darn thing every time. Plus I’m no natural at it, being way too prone to stargazing and talking people into pulling my finger to be much good at doing […]

Lavender Mists

Now I’ve never been much of one for much enjoying modern art, especially of the non-objective kind. I like abstraction to a point, since all art is in a sense abstracting from nature or reality – an artifice not the real thing – which is why the name art. But if there’s no reference to […]

Lachrymosia

I have a problem. It started when I was 8. A bunch of us kids were gathered at Grandmother’s house listening to the neighbor girl tell a ghost story. For some reason when she got to the tense, scary part, my eyes started tearing up. That had never happened before and it kind of weirded […]

Climate change

Since today is my 200th blog I was going to talk about that, but found out today, October 15, 2009, is Blog Action Day and the topic is climate change. Bloggers around the world are discussing climate change and what to do about it. I am not a huge joiner of political causes or an […]

Frogs

The frog sat on the log in the bog like an amphibious hog, oinking frogways. I love frogs. Never ate one, but I bet if I ate a frog I’d like that too. Not that many things in this world I don’t like eating. But let’s put eating aside for a moment, after I finish […]

Courage

I got a link today from @DavidBTwit about Martin Strel, this guy who swam down the Amazon river, all the way.  Made me ponder courage and how much he has compared to me. Imagine hopping back into a river after your boys just had to pull you out because pirhanas were chewing on your legs. My […]

Changes

Bye Hank. I am as changeless as the sea. At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself for low these many years. I’ve been after the change goblin for a long long time, attempting to become someone acceptable to myself and others. I’ve tried to try to change, anyway, if sighing a lot and taking […]

Comparing stuff

I wonder at myself – why when I compare stuff do I always have to compare it against the best? Why not compare it against the worst? It would sure make me a lot happier. It may be that addictive personality of mine, always trying to recapture the peak experience. Or I could be stupid. […]

The joy of fear

There must be something good about fear. It’s really making a comeback on TV these days. National Geo and Discovery-type channels would run out of shows if there weren’t tornado, volcano, tidal-wave, planet-busting comet, out-of-control virus, earthquake, or sundry natural disaster topics. They need the Death, Doom, and Destruction channel. Something about us loves fear […]

Sugar and meaning

This blog is dedicated to DGrintalis, for whose generous tweet I am much in debt. Sugar is like all good things. Too much of it is bad. Doggone it, that’s just not fair. Something that is good should remain good to the end – good, good, good, and that’s it – but that’s not how […]

The original city

The human race is a mixed up bunch. Rascals and saints, switching from day to day and person to person, era to era. This morning I’m a scoundrel, tonight an angel. He was a bastard until he saved her life. She was a genius, until she forgot how to love. How did we start, and […]

Water of life

  Raining again today. Rainy and cold and dreary, as it has been for much of this spring. Yahoo! Man I love this. Maybe because I’m a water sign, or maybe just a waterbaby, or maybe because Colorado is a high plains state – semi-arid – and every drop of moisture is a blessing to […]
