Saw this on Facebook a few minutes ago. I'm stealin' it. It's funny, and this way I don't have to write anything but I can show you all how much I really care while continuing to slack and relax at my Mom's house.
And according to my Mom, people do, I should let people know that I am out of town.
I am in fact visiting her at the moment.
She was surprised to see how...what's the word I am looking for? How bleak I have become of late. How stressed and how on the ragged edge I really am. 'Shell-shocked' was a word that came up. As much as I don't enjoy exposing her to these aspects of me, what better place to be than right here, right now though, right?
If I ate chicken, I'd be having her make me some chicken soup. Instead, maybe something with fish or tofu.
In the meantime, it is time to do what I did last year and try to get a battery recharge and sort through what is, without a doubt, some of the darkest garbage that is in my head I have ever had.
She asked me why I haven't been blogging. I just said 'Mom, sometimes, I just feel like I don't have anything good in my head, in my life, to share, and why always go over the same old crap over and over? Besides, I…
When you go to load in some photos you took off your camera, and you realize that it has been over a month since you even did THAT, it is a bit of an eye-opener.
As if I even needed one.
As a guy who used to take hundreds of photos every month, and I mean I had so many photos of so many things I had to buy a 2TB External Hard Drive just to manage it all and then a second to have a back-up of it, that says something.
I only know it has been so long because when I do load-ins I do it by date. When you use the Scanner and Camera Wizard, if that is your THING, it gives you an option of naming the photos as you load them into your computer.
I exercise that option. Hey, I gotta exercise some time, right?
So I have every photo since I started doing it generally organized the same way. Easier to locate that way. And easier for loading and stuff. When I store them into folders I create folders that have names but the beginning of the Folder name has part of the date in it, so that way it sta…
My mood, which has been so-so of late, had to limp all the way through August.
I have such a Love/Hate relationship with that month. Some of the greatest things in the world are associated with it, and some of the worst are too. Plus it is always so freaking HOT. Hate that.
But even though September brings with it the horror and abomination of my birthday and another year closer to a dirtnap, it at least brings cooler temperatures and, best of all, the return of the football season.
It starts tonight. Oddly, on a Wednesday, because of a speech planned by the POTUS on Thursday. A game twixt the Super Bowl Champion New York FOOTBALL Giants and the Dallas Cowboys.
For me, the REAL season gets underway on Monday Night Football, when the Baltimore Ravens take on the Cincinnati Bengals in an AFC North game right out of the gate at home. At least it is at home. Can't wait.
We were so close last year. SO close. Watching Lee Evans drop a touchdown pass, then watching Billy Cundiff miss an…
