It’s all in the technique

June 11, 2014

Shane: Teach me how to dance Grandma.

Me: Okay, step like this and count…one…two…three…four.

Shane(stepping): one…two…three…four…five…six…seven…

 

Shane (waving arms around, hopping): Dance like this.

Me(trying to keep up): What do you call this dance?

Shane: This dance.

Me: Of course.

The fine art of doing absolutely nothing and other news

June 11, 2014

It takes a lot of energy to do nothing.  You exercise a little procrastination, a smidgen of complacency and suddenly you’re feeling that burn of apathy. Eventually I’ll catch up…maybe I’ll start tomorrow.
And now for some good news, my zombie book is now being professionally edited.  Last I heard, he was on chapter five, and that was about a week ago.  Either it’s a horrible mess, or he’s engrossed in reading it.  Hopefully it’s the latter.  I still find it hard not to hold my breath.  So many times  in the past things have went wrong whenever I tried to do something with it.  I’ll be glad when it’s done and printed, and then I can move on to something else.  That something else might be book II (or for those who read most of it here, book III), or I might work on rewriting The Tree and see about getting it published. Who knows?  Like everything else right now, it’s all up in the air and on hold.
And now for the news portion of this post.  What the hell is going on these days???  You can’t go on a news site without reading about some whack job shooting up someone(s) or something. I even read one news article about some guy killing a girl, cutting her up and then eating her. I would like to say that’s the worst thing I’ve read this week.  Sadly, it’s not. One of those stress, squishy balls was out of the question, I guess. I’m not even going to go into the misogynistic, complete waste of life, assholes in India and what’s been happening to women there.  That TRULY is the kindest thing I can say about it/them.  Russia is apparently playing Red Rover with the Ukraine. Lastly, you throw Ebola into the ring, and how it’s spreading past it’s traditional infection borders and we have a plot worthy of any B rate horror/disaster movie. According to the latest news, Great White Sharks aren’t even immune to the craziness.  Just ask Alpha shark, or what’s left of him. After reading back over this, I guess a better question would be, what the hell ISN’T going on?

Stuff…Things

February 26, 2014

Yesterday was a particularly productive day.  I got up early, spoke to a Victimology class, got my hair done, and did some grocery shopping.  Speaking of shopping, my local Walmart seems to be stocking a bit better than they did before the negative news item about them.  I was finally able to get some wax paper.  yay!  Other shelves seemed to be stocked just a bit better too. Let’s hope they keep it up.
Today I have to go to my periodontist.  While the visits aren’t too bad (thank you nitrous oxide), it’s in a different city and sometimes it’s just tedious.  But, then again, since it’s in a different city there are some cool stores we get to shop at.  It all balances out.
The rest of the week is pretty open.  I’m remaining optimistic in regards to the job interview I had, and hearing from them.  If not, I got a tip from an old professor about a possible job.  Hopefully one of them pans out.
Here’s to hoping everyone’s week is going well and to a relaxing weekend. – Dragon out

Last Night’s Walking Dead

February 24, 2014

Okay, technically this is about the last two episodes, since I didn’t do one for last week’s episode.  So here goes…
What the hell happened?  The mid season opener was awesome and then it was followed by two of the most boring and irritating episodes ever.  Last week they opened with Daryl and Beth.  Normally any scene with Daryl in it is an instant hit, but not even Daryl could save those parts of the episode.  I’m sorry, she may be sweet and all that.  But Beth is the most boring, and irritating character I’ve seen in a long time.  If this were the Brady Bunch, she wouldn’t be Marcia Brady, but that one annoying sister that was so bad I can’t remember her name.  YEAH…that one.  And I can’t stand it.  If they don’t find the others pretty soon I’m going to have to swear off Daryl parts too until they do.  And don’t even get me started on Tyrese and the psycho child.  They need to make a fast exit from this series.  Tyrese because he’s a liability and a dumbass, and Lizzie because, well look what she did to the bunnies for God’s sake, not to mention what she tried to do to Judith.  Then there’s Glenn.  For about a minute I thought he was going back to the old Glenn.  Strong, man-like, decisive. But then he saved Tara and took her with him and that all went downhill.  THEN there’s the asshats they just met (Abraham and gang).  I swear, I’m sick of villains, sick I tell you!  Can’t they just fight freakin’ zombies and survive for a while??  The only parts I’ve enjoyed watching were between Rick, Carl, Michonne and Maggie.  That’s it.  PLEASE writers, can we just stabilize for a little bit before spinning off into something else?

Cold…Round 2

February 23, 2014

My cold, which I thought was making an exit, staged a brutal comeback last night.  This is not a good week for me to be sick.  Tomorrow I’m supposed to get my hair cut, Tuesday I’m speaking to a Victimology class at the local university, and Wednesday I have a Periodontal appointment.  I guess that today I’ll have to scarf up many cold concoctions and try to sweat it out tonight.  Ughh

Some People Just NEED their Candy Fix

February 23, 2014

THIS reminds me of the quote: Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.  At least he’s not like some of the idiots you hear about that rock the machine on top of themselves.

Breaking News

February 21, 2014

The night before last we were watching a news channel out of Montgomery when to our total amazement a story about our local Walmart came on.  I knew things were getting kind of sketchy there but I didn’t expect some kind of Mission Impossible, covert operation news item.  Oddly enough, I went there the day after the story and there were all types of employees around and food was flying onto the shelves.
