Commentary & Opinion

Good idea I’ve decided I won’t do

Despite being aware that nobody is checking out this blog except Romanian botts and search engines, it still keeps me happy and gives me something to do each day instead of sitting around on my bed doing drugs like the stereotype junkie. I can tell myself it's a great...

Inconvenience for profit

One thing I remember very distinctly about journalism was the concept that you put the most important information in the first paragraph and then follow up with details as the story continues. The theory, at the time was that not everyone needed the details and if...

Black Friday

Black Friday

Yet another American holiday that comes from the origins of a horrible history. A day when many people died and others lost their fortunes. The Americans celebrate this every year with expanding leeway in both directions. This year Black Friday started at the beginning of October with advertisements for pre-block Friday sales. I suspect it will go on for another few weeks. We try not to think of...

Face to face with terror

Face to face with terror

The title of this blog post is a little dramatic. I was actually face to face with cuteness. Tiny little rats are cute. Last night when I was putting the pig blanket on the pig, I found myself staring face to face with a rat. It was so cute I had to smile. It was frozen in place of course hoping that I wouldn't notice. Hoping they wouldn't see it and become a predator. The rats on this farm are...

It’s so easy to be spoiled

It’s so easy to be spoiled

Since I don't have a car, I have adopted to the idea of having everything delivered to me. I could take the bus now that I found it's not as expensive or inconvenient as I once thought it was, but the convenience of delivery allows me to not have to change my clothes and put on shoes and leave the house. For my Uber eats and my grocery delivery from Walmart, I don't even pay the delivery fees...

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 whether the new bitmoji is supported by the app as...

I’m self aware. I have tricks to make my life better.

Although he's a decade older than me, many of our mental issues are similar. It's surprises me somewhat that he has not figured out some of the most basic tricks that people like us use to make life better. The one I'm referring to today is having a place for things. I always put my keys in the same place. I always put my shoes in the same place. This is less important when I live out of one...

It works.

Sometimes it's weird how knowledge evolves. A relatively simple and straightforward concept that I just never thought of before now. I was sitting on the toilet as shown in the video, and I thought it's a shame that so many of my video blogs don't make it to the website for one reason or another....

Best laid plans vs Chicken logic

Best laid plans vs Chicken logic

When I can out the door for the afternoon feed, the weak chickens that linger in different circles are always first to detect me, and the waddle towards me. Over the past couple of days I've tried to death feed them their own portion before the rooster and his harem notice. Today it backfired a bit. I put the first dish down and walked towards the main feeding area. I dumped the rest of the...

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 when he lunges but I've never gone after him in any...

Skip skip the dishes

I don't like to complain. Having said that, I don't like having a reason to complain because I don't like to complain and having a good reason puts me in a spot. Today I ordered the only hamburger in the city that's 1 lb. It's only available from Skip the dishes so I ordered it. In Niagara Falls food delivery comes with a bit of a hefty surcharge. I know that if I'm going to have food delivered...

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.

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 could be around for another 20 years to see how it...

I’ve watched Netflix

I think I may have watched everything on Netflix. Not literally everything, but everything I think I'd like. There are a lot of really enjoyable series on the service but when you live alone with full days to watch TV, eventually there isn't much left. On network TV, I watched a lot of crime procedurals, a few sitcoms and not much else. None of those are popular picks for Netflix and most of...

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 additional hour or three. Instead of starting my day at...

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 science fiction stories but every one needs you to...

Will I look back and realize how stupid all this was?

I hope I won't look back with regrets. I don't like thinking that way. I live very much in the NOW often choosing the path that offers instant gratification, and I do this with self awareness. I try not to endorse meth use. I understand it can be a hideous drug with devastating results. I understand it has destroyed families, communities and cities. It has caused some of that damage to me as...

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 signal them that I recognize one of those items,...

Porn Questions

Porn Questions

It's 3.14 am. I call that pie time. I was going to write a major blog (salute) about my life, the changes I need to make moving forward, and my recent fiasco embarassing myself in a new town but instead I titled this piece about porn instead. Now I don't know which direction I'll go. I have so many stories to share. The porn ones seem easier to ask, and then move on I suppose. I have two...

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 for the basic ones. Probably the cheapest palette...

The Important Friday.

It turns out we do thank God it's Friday. Old English Frīgedæg ‘day of Frigga’, named after the Germanic goddess Frigga, wife of the supreme god Odin and goddess of married love; translation of late Latin Veneris dies ‘day of Venus’, Frigga being equated with the Roman goddess of love, Venus. Compare with Dutch vrijdag and German Freitag. In therapy, we discussed that I need to work harder to...

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 Grammarly keyboard which offers a higher level of...

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 pocket, able to be triggered by local police in the...

Perscriptions for the win

Just a brief blog posting, late in December before the new year and SUPER MONDAY comes. I've not been smoking much weed of late, and not doing any other drugs, and so sadly, I have been blogging less.

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 I had to live on my own for the first time.  I...

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.

I can see how some patients might imagine themselves smarter than their doctor when in fact they’re...

Wishing is a precurser to planning or frustation

I always considered wishing almost as useless as complaing about your past. I'm certainly not saying I don't, I'm just saying I have changed my opinion. I have evolved. Level up. 500 points. I will not compare this to what I think other people may have aquired by age 54. Only a few of my friends have made it. I sicialize in the age group of my mind, and I always have. I don't know why that is...

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 was forever rising, when in reality it was just...

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 parents, and so I was a disappointment at times....

If I could work like I write.

One of the things I like about myself is how easily I've been able to write. It started out of a distraction during my high school years. If I'd lost my place and fallen out of sync with the lesson being taught, I'd just find a sheet of paper and put pent to it with a sentence. I'd be writing. I was asked how I write once and I answered that I just start with a title or a sentence and keep...

It is not one I recommend because there are parameters that fell into place for me,...

I was on a streak this morning. I was going to say roll, but I never understood how that made sence, except for cheap jokes about other bread products.

The style and frequency of his posts made it clear to her, his ups and downs, but interestingly it was exactly opposite of...

Coincidences from God

Some religions believe that miracles happen every day, and things we would never believe are divine, we call a coincidence. I call them signs from the Universe that somebody is paying attention.

The first 1/3 second is half a body running on a btedmill, but it cuts away almost instantly as...
