...This is More Entertaining than it Should Be...

I've never understood why someone would go through so much trouble to create something with the intention of wrecking it at the end, but it's kind of amusing whenever they do. These are really impressive.

Wow! It works!

Yes I was, but I needed a break.

...Sometimes I Just Wonder ~ "Really Random Thoughts" edition...

I almost feel bad for saying this, but I’m kind of glad that you’ve probably heard of Serene Branson.

They’re saying now that it was possibly a migraine that caused her troubles, and I totally believe it. I’ve never had one bad enough to scramble any words I’m trying to speak, but I’ve had some bad enough to scramble any words I’m trying to hear. I had one start up a little over a week ago that was so bad, I couldn’t read. I could see the words and understand them but they kept reading out of order. It was a mess. Migraines are no joke.

Aside from all that, I’ve still got a ton of stuff on my mind and my head is all over the place. So the best I can muster for a post is a few of my random, fleeting thoughts. Hope you don’t mind

...I Ain't Go'n Bump No More...

Don't act like your parents never made you do the bump in the basement to this song in front of all their friends.

And don't act like the Joe Tex song doesn't make you think of the Jimmy Castor Bunch, "Bertha Butt Boogie"

...I Watched the Game, Too...

Okay, so I only watched the first half of the game.
And I wasn't really watching it, it was mostly just a background thing while I sorted some files. But I caught the commercials. And so like everyone else, I'm going to drop my Top 7 favorite commercials this year. I'm doing 7 because I didn't want to do 10, but I could not, could not, could not get it down to 5. I tried. I failed. Maybe next time.
These aren't in any particular order, but the first one is definitely my favorite. – Chimps

My other favorite for obvious reasons. I especially like the part about stuff that’s written in the papers by people that have never been here. Amen.

...I Have to Do Better...

Today was a snow day for us.

We knew yesterday we would be closed today, so I broke a rule I set for myself at the start of every year and brought work home. Due to some unforeseen traffic issues, I was home much later than I anticipated (about four hours later) but I still managed to get most of my work done last night. The intention was for me to spend today working on some other things for myself.

Didn’t really work out that way.

Probably because I broke another rule.

My whole life has always felt like I’m that minor actor you see as an extra in every movie. They rarely have a line, never get a lead. You don’t even know their name. But they play the biggest small part ever. (“Girl #1,” “Hysterical Woman,” “Second Prostitute”)

They’re a catalyst for some major turn in the movie, but they’re on and off the screen so fast if you looked down to see where that dropped piece of popcorn landed in your lap or down your shirt, you probably missed them.

That’s me.
