Things on my mind. 12/29/15

Well hopefully everyone had a good Christmas.  I’m not one that enjoys Christmas time.  Not for religious reasons, just because I’m not a fan of all the festive crap.  I think as you get older, Christmas time is more of a hassle anyways. Should i get this person this, will this person like this gift, should i get them a gift card or just money? It’s a pain in the ass really.

This weather sucks right now.  No snow for Christmas and it was around 40 degrees which is awesome.  Then, out of nowhere we get ice and snow for the past two days.  Can’t really complain though, New Mexico and Texas got hit with snow, earthquakes and tornadoes.  Someone pissed god off.

I was able to see the Stanley Cup a few months ago at the Blackhawks convention.  Of course while I was there, I had to kiss it.  I mean really, when would be the next time I would be able to see and touch such a kick ass trophy? Well that question was answered this past weekend when I was able to get my picture taken twice with it at different locations.  Yeah, I was cheesy and I didn’t give a fk. 10274283_10153766376394326_4426074061033183562_n

CNN wrote some bullshit news story about Rob Kardashian going to the hospital for diabetes.  I commented “I have diabetes too. I must have missed that report CNN ran for me.”  2 hours later, its up to 600 likes.  Guess I made a few people laugh.  I’m tired of seeing stupid ass stories like this on a “news” channel. I find myself watching Fox now more then ever simply because they don’t air stupid shit like this.  I always thought of Fox News as the old white guy racist channel. But honestly, after watching it for awhile, it’s not bad.  The one thing I will say about CNN, they love to act as a race bait.

Black Lives Matter.  This damn group is going about their protest the wrong way.  I’m all for people protesting, it’s our right. But when you are protesting, even peacefully, you can still do more harm then good.  Perfect example.  If you’re going to protest BLM and you are shutting down a highway, freeway or streets, the only thing you’re doing is building more animosity.  People want to get to work, people need to pick up their kids, people need to get to the hospital.  If my family member is on their death bed, with only a few hours to live and i’m stuck on a freeway due to your protest, I’m going to be anti whatever organization you’re with.  On the opposite side of the coin.  Why, as a driver, do you stop?  That question alone reminds me of Reginald Denny.  You’re in this big ass semi and you stop?  What good could come from that?  Bet when he was getting that brick against his head, he was thinking…why did i stop?  I will say that i find it funny that the same people who counter the Black Lives Matter by saying All Lives Matter, are the first ones who say no to having refugees in the US.

2016 is two days away.  Normally this is when I would think about a new years resolution.  This year is different though.  I think that this is going to be the year of Health.  As of right now, i’m a 36 year old guy in a 97 year old body.  I know that i have to take better care of my body before it’s too late.  Being a diabetic, I don’t want to lose my legs or my eyes.  I don’t want my wife to have to put my pic in the obituary before i turn 40.  I’m just going to take it one day at a time.

Whitney Houston is coming up on her 4 year sober anniversary.

Mother Nature has a sense of humor. It was warm enough yesterday to not have to wear a winter coat, but then this crap. 7dayFULL I hate living in the Midwest with a passion.  I want to go back to TX but hell, even they are getting snow.  The bad thing about it snowing, just as it is now, is that people want to drive like fkn idiots.  There are three rules to remember when driving in snow. 1) Dont get hit. 2) Dont hit someone else. 3) Drive.  Some people want to drive like they are tip toeing into the kitchen at midnight.  I’m all for being safe of course, but damn if you don’t go you’re going to get stuck.

Stuart Scott passed away today.  I was never a fan of his really, but he was a good personality for ESPN. Glad that he was able to make it through the holidays for his daughters.

And of all the bullshit things I buy, why haven’t I bought a car starter?  It is nice though being here and not having anyone around me.  Just me, Venti pumpkin spice latte and Dido.

didobioI played Dido’s CD nonstop when I was overseas.  I remember my tent mate yelling at me to shut it off cause I played it so much.  This would be played in my tent and Outkast would be playing everywhere else.  At post..outkast.  On our way to Kuwait City..outkast.  Chowhall..Outkast.  They had a song, “Bombs Over Baghdad” that the Kuwait’s would dance to.  One of the Kuwait Officers heard me play it, reached in his shirt and pulled out a cross necklace.  He kept saying “SEE, I’M CHRISTMAS, I’M CHRISTMAS!”  I said you mean Christian.  “YES, CHRISTMAS!”  Okay then. lol

I go back to work tomorrow, after a 2 week vacation.  Honestly, I don’t want to go back. Not because of the kids, I love them and their craziness.  But because I don’t get paid shit really for all the stress we have.  I know, something is better than nothing but I could seriously go work at Aldi’s and bag groceries and make more than what I do now. I’m hoping to get a phone call tomorrow with some good news that will better this situation.

Break Free by Ruby Rose= beautiful song, check her out.

Let me ask a question.  In life, your main objective is to have kids and pass on that bloodline.  What if you can’t have kids?  Then what is the meaning to life?  You wake up, eat, shit, work, sleep, repeat.  You really don’t have a purpose anymore.  The bloodline stops with you.  If you were fortunate enough, your parents tried to raise you in a way in which you will be a great parent to your own kids and pass on traditions. I think about all the things I was able to give my parents, everything but a grandchild.  When my sister got pregnant at 15, I had some animosity toward her kid.  You mean to tell me God will give a kid to a 15 year old girl, but not two adults who have good jobs, are caring, and want kids?  I think that’s why my belief in God is so null.  I believe Jesus was a man who did walk this Earth. I don’t believe the miracle stuff though.  I’m just not buying the whole God created man and the universe shit.  Maybe it’s the fact that I had to go to a Catholic School and the shit was stuffed down my throat, that now I’m like eh.

Well folks I think its time for me to go.  There is a creepy dude sitting across the room staring at me like he wants my nuts.
