January 19, 2014

I have been in a foul mood all day. (this was written last night, by the way) When I woke up I felt my normal happy self. But soon, everything changed. I had an early situation which warranted some anger. Basically a work thing popped up unexpectedly that had me thinking I was being attacked […]

I’m Writing This Post High on Doctor-Prescribed Meds

January 17, 2014

Okay, “high” is a wild exaggeration. But I don’t drink, smoke, or use drugs. This is all I can party with, people. A minor tinge of a half of a slight buzz. It’s a side effect from ADD medicine that I started taking over the past few months. I have been on some form of […]

I Sometimes Publish Crap – A Confession

January 17, 2014

A Dangerous Tweet

January 15, 2014

I sent out a dangerous tweet. It read, “I will write an entire blog post about whatever the first person to respond wants.” The first reply was a total misfire - @amoldkevin said, “me.” While I appreciate his tenacity, I can’t write about someone I don’t know.

It’s Official – I’m at My Fattest!

January 12, 2014

I weighed in this afternoon at a meaty 223.8 lbs. This is quite an accomplishment for a man that could eat whatever he wanted up until two years ago. Hell, five years ago I was at 175. I’m just shy of 6’3″ and should clock in between 190-200lbs. That’s ideal for me. Actually, your scale […]

January 11, 2014

I don’t think I’ve ever written about a product that inspired me. Well, I’ve tweeted about the Squatty Potty. It’s changing my life. Hands down, the best $25 I’ve spent.
