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...

The Anxiety of Success

The virtual life future.

The virtual life future.

One of my unfinished projects was to write a fiction. A short story or a novel if I felt up to it. In my mind it made a good TV series and I could be a millionaire if I only told someone about it. I have two chapters and I might be inspired to write more now and then...

Flip Flopping isn’t a bad thing.

I have do much to share but let's see what gets retained long enough for the blog. I flip flop a lot. Often several times a minute as I internally debate decisions. If I stall long enough somebody else will make it. My phyciatrist has a standard procedure of always...

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...

The top choice. Age 55.

Age 55 seems like a nice OCD age to make a change. I wouldn't change my whole style at 54, even if that is a round number. I wonder if 55 is a Prime number. It might be.     I'm super pissed I deleted a very long blog entry just now. A big one, accidentally...

I’m obsessive, but I don’t have OCD

I use it as a joke line now and then, but it's actually the truth. A friend of mine started pointing out to me that I had OCD, and I used to always answer; I'm obsessive, but I don't have OCD. One day I asked myself, do I always answer that way? Do I have to answer...
