I HAD A WEIRD DREAM LAST NIGHT

I dreamt that I discovered that I had two illegitimate sons, who had each tracked me down and come to see me, in my house (actually most of the dream took place specifically in the room next to my kitchen where I have the washing machine, dryer, and refrigerator). They’re weren’t full-brothers, though, they were…

WORKING IN A PORN SHOP…

For you younger readers I’m about to blow your minds. Did you know that there was a time when if you wanted to watch porn you couldn’t just type in whatever perverted fantasy you had in mind into Google and then soon be viewing a video of it for free? No, back in my day,…

Unfriended?!?

Last night I went to check on a friend’s Facebook page and discovered that we are no longer friends. I did not unfriend her, so that means that she unfriended me. This isn’t the first time that this has happened, people have suddenly unfriended me, and I’ve unfriended many people. Except usually I don’t just…

Blah Blah Blah

Today has not been the best day. It got off to a bad start from the minute I woke up. While I enjoy watching and reviewing Mistresses every Monday, having to stay up past 11 messes with my sleep schedule. I wish I could just catch the East Coast broadcast at 7pm. So I was…

I’ve Been “Tagged”?

Ann St. Vincent is an “executive businesswoman & blogger who writes about her sexless & open marriage, affairs, divorce, sexual reawakening, online dating, and relationships.” I recently began following her blog at http://annstvincent.com/ and you should too (well, unless you’re uptight about reading extremely frank posts about sex, then nevermind). Today I got a pingback…

Online Friends vs. Real Friends

As I come upon my 7th year on Facebook (signed up in August 2007), & 12th year online overall (I got my first PC in 2002) I’m reflecting on the concept of online friendships. A lot of people used to say, and still do, that all of these connections people make online are stupid, pointless,…

July 2014: I Blogged A Lot

July was quite a month for me in the blogosphere. I always say that my goal with this blog is to average one post per day each month. Meaning that at the end of each month my post-count should be at least the same as the number of days in that month, even if I…

WORKING OVERTIME

I’m typing this while I’m work. This is my last break for today. I have been working a lot recently. Last week we started our annual inventory count, where we stop shipping and just spend all day counting parts, which is long and boring. So last Monday and Tuesday we came in early (8am and…

iBLOGalot: Annual WordPress Report 2013

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 26,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many…

GOOGLE PLUS IS STILL A GHOST TOWN

The last time I wrote about Google Plus, and how I rarely use it, I ended it by saying: But, again, it’s still the almighty Google, so who knows? By this time next year I could be off FB altogether and spending all my time on G+. I guess we’ll see. Well, here I am,…

I’VE GOT A HUGE PIMPLE ON MY FACE

Seriously. I woke up yesterday morning with a clearly visible pimple right on my face, a little underneath my right eye. It’s even bigger today. I don’t want to pop it, since that could leave a spot, so I’m just waiting for it to go away, but this sucks. I’m self-conscious enough as it is,…

OCULAR HYPERTENSION

What Is Ocular Hypertension? Eye pressure is expressed in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg), the same unit of measurement used in weather barometers. While normal eye pressure has historically been considered a measurement of less than 21 mm Hg, this normal “normal” upper limit may vary in different populations. Ocular hypertension is not the same…

JURY DUTY

One of my coworkers got drafted for Jury Duty last week. Poor girl. I’ve gone in for Jury Duty twice, and now I just ignore the early questionaires that they send. It’s not like they send them via registered mail, so they can’t prove that I got it. Yes, I know it’s my “civic duty”…

BLAH, BLAH, BLAH

First, before I say anything else, let me once again reiterate that I do feel fortunate that I have a decent, steady job, unlike far too many people these days, so I know I shouldn’t really complain. But, man, work has been rough the past week. Starting last Wednesday we had to do our annual…

2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: 600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 9,500 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 16 years to get…

WORKING FOR A LIVING

I mostly like my job. I work as a shipper in a warehouse, for a good company, with a good boss, and mostly good coworkers. The only downside is that I’m pretty much on my feet all day long, which gets less easier as I get older. But, other than that, I can’t really complain.…

THAT TIME I HAD A GUN POINTED AT ME

I’ve had a gun pointed @ me once. You’d think that for such a momentous occasion I’d remember more details than I do, but I only remember a few basics. I was either 16 or 17, and it was in the afternoon, around 12-2pm I’d say, during the week on a school day. I was…

I DON’T WANT TO HAVE CHILDREN

I don’t have any paternal instinct. The thought of having children does not hold any appeal to me. For some reason, people usually jump to make the assumption that this means that I don’t like children, but that is absolutely not the case. I love children. Specifically, I love other people’s children. Babies and little…

LONELINESS?‏

Taken from The Daily Post yesterday: When was the last time you felt really, truly lonely? This is actually a bit of a tough question for me. The truth is, I don’t really get lonely. I’ve always been a loner, an introvert, I’m perfectly comfortably spending time by myself, in fact I usually prefer it,…

WORKING FOR A LIVING‏

Dang, 9 days into the month, and no new blogs. Falling back into that old non-habit. Well, once again, it’s WORK. I’ve just been working so darn much I don’t any energy to think afterwards. Again, I know, I shouldn’t complain. I mean, I can go read stories like this: Unemployment Stories, Vol. 11: ‘I’d…

GOOGLE PLUS

Last month I deleted my Google+ profile. Then a few weeks ago, when I started blogging regularly again, I decided to re-open it, just because I figured it couldn’t hurt to have one more place online to post links to my blogs, in addition to my Facebook and Twitter pages. So that’s all that I’m…

FRIDAY

It’s Friday. I’m awake (although I’d much rather be asleep), about to get ready for work. The heatwave has returned, it’s been in the high 80’s, I’m actually planning to wear shorts today, exposing my pale high-yellow legs, something I don’t usually do, but we’ve also gotten extra busy again (which is why I haven’t…
