Although there are several new features that are only accessible using the new bitmoji, they don't seem to be ones I would use all that much. I suppose I could make it look similar to the old one now that I've played with it it seems better than when I first looked at it a couple of weeks ago briefly. I use my bitmoji a lot so I want to see...

Mojo and Me

Mojo and Me

I learned the name of the rooster's mojo but I prefer calling it the rooster anyway because calling it by its name implies some form of relationship. I suppose in a way we do have an adversarial relationship he wants to attack me and I want to avoid being attacked. He doesn't seem to get that I don't attack him. I haven't. I will defend myself...

Social Media Life Stages

Social Media Life Stages

I'm not sure if this is just me. But I suspect not. The way we use social media has changed, subtly without much notice Bering paid. It's a fascinating burst of unexpected culture shock that is a fascinating spectator sport. I mean the whole way the plant reacted I totally and then the changes on our life's that brought us to today. I wish I...

Steps to a better day

Steps to a better day

Over the years, I have found some key elements that make my day work out better. They're not a guarantee of course since there are so many variables and obstacles but it is clear to me when I don't follow these steps, I feel a lot shittier. 1. Wake up. Get up. This is such a significant step. When I wake up and then go back to sleep for an...

Time travel used to exist.

Time travel used to exist.

I just watched the latest and perhaps last Ryan Reynolds film; the Adam project. I am a fan of time travel stories and even have two projects stories of my own in various stages of procrastination. I search out and watch as many time stories as I can and I don't judge their process or logic. Most don't end well. Time travel is a popular tool for...

Describe blue

Describe blue

Some things in life can only be described by comparing it to something else. When we try to describe anything really, our first instinct is to start listing off other things. If I ask a person to describe blue for example, they will almost certainly start by telling me things that are blue, assuming at some point during their list, my eyes will...

Monday without chocolate

Monday without chocolate

I'm on the subway a bit later than usual. It's almost been as I make my way downtown for my office duties and paycheck. I didn't have chocolate this morning and the pop tart breakfast wasn't effective and clearing that bad mouth feeling. I don't have much cash but I think I can manage a donut. It's 2009 and I think they're still under a dollar...

The Google keyboard

The Google keyboard

I can't seem to find a perfect on screen keyboard for my phone. Many come close, but they still irritate me at times. I used to use SwiftKey, which was a paid app. This past year I've been using Gboard which is Google's own keyboard app.  I occasionally get mad at its auto correct and move on to something else. This week I played with the Android...

Charlie’s Message

Charlie’s Message

[Written in 2003 and just found recently] E: Tell me again Uncle Charly.  I am just not getting it.   No, of course you’re not, and there-in lies the problem on so many levels.  You’re not getting it.  I’m not sure if you will ever understand it.  And that’s scary.   But that’s it.  I don’t see what the big deal is.  People will still...

The New Air Raid Siren for 2019

The New Air Raid Siren for 2019

I grew up in a small town and always asked; What's the funny thing in the center of town. I later learned it was an air raid siren. I never heard it and at some point in my youth, it vanished. It's 2019 now and we all carry a personal device with us. In my new home town of Toronto, technology has re-invented the air raid siren and put it in my...

The Important Friday.

Pausenblog: November Greys.

It's a week and a bit since I started the new perscription from my phyciatrist. I didn't really ask for the drugs, although that was my intent for the last three years. The whole story stems from me wanting to see if amphedimine based medication would work for me, because my A.DD has gotten more noticiable since I started evaluation my life when...

Shrink Week 1

Shrink Week 1

When I have no Internet, the Microsoft Mail program included with Windows 10 still does the spellcheck, so it's a pretty good editor for blogging. Today I realized it can actually be used to send directly to the Wordpress Blog.  I used a Star Trek reference to my psychiatrist, so he did as well. I can see how some patients might imagine...

I remember thye origin stories of the weirdest things

I remember thye origin stories of the weirdest things

I remember visually where I was standing when I first heard the CBC Radio announcer describing this piece of music he was about to play. It wasn't so much music like a song, but a tone. Somebody had invented, or discovered this tone that sounded like it was rising higher and higher, forever. It was a loop that tricked our ears into thinking it...

That Multi-Use Urban Park. Spring Love.

That Multi-Use Urban Park. Spring Love.

I just witnessed one of the coolest things ever. It seems the park bench I chose to sit on, in the shaded section of an urban strip park comes with a show. The park is approximately the width of a street, and I suspect at one time it probably was, or a service lane that often exists behind a more commercial main road. Nicely architected with...

Working to please

Working to please

The psychiatrists are often made fun of, because they too often seem to blame the mother or father. I grew up with a mental illness condition before even the term mental illness was coined, and long before people knew A.D.D wasn't just a kid being irritating on purpose. Because of this ignorance, I lived a life that must have been irritating to...

My $130 phone bill could be $40 but —

Not a single company offers a 6gig deal anymore. Now that all celluar is blue, red, green or orange in Canada and we know They also control all TV and content delivery, we seem stuck with plans all over $100 for data. Canadian monoplies that collude are as bad as no choice at all. I think Chatr is 3 or 4gb now, as are almost all plans. I use...
