Interesting moments in my life.

An older gentleman was reading a newspaper and sitting next to me at Starbucks, where I was waiting for my student, and he suddenly turns to me and asks, “Do you watch a lot of TV?”

“Uh, yeah, I guess?”  I shrugged, because, well, I do, but mostly on Netflix.

“Have you ever watched ‘Justified’?”  [...]

Robert “Ethan” Saylor’s obituary and donation information.

Thanks to a commenter (Hunter) – his comment here) on this post about the man with Down’s (Robert) who was killed by off-duty deputies acting as theater security guards, I’ve learned that the death has been ruled a homicide, officially, but that they want to keep things in-house:

In the interest of full disclosure, Sheriff [...]

I forgot how good it felt to be heard.

Thank you to Breda’s FacebookTM and to Uncle for sharing my post about Robert Saylor.

To everyone who’s shared this on Twitter, Facebook, etc. – I thank you, as well.  So far, there have been 5 Tweets, 73 Facebook shares/comments (it counts both as a share, since it’s being discussed), and 2 shares on Google+, [...]

Please pass this around. Make people aware. This should not happen, EVER.

A young man with Down’s syndrome in Maryland wanted to sit through another showing of a movie.  Rather than either asking him to leave, or leaving him alone (seriously, he sits through another showing, what happens?  It’s likely his companion would have gotten him out of there, anyway), the theater calls in some security guards [...]

A couple of things I’ve been doing to pass time.

I have, of course, my YouTube channel, the use of which has fallen a bit by the wayside as I’ve discovered game-streaming, of all things.

I’ve made some friends, acquaintances, and even a couple of “frenemies” (people I don’t openly hate, but with whom I have an understanding…we stay out of each other’s way, and [...]

Don’t let your mouth write checks your ass can’t cash.

This goes for SO MANY PEOPLE today.

Early this morning, I was called a liar and belittled over a stupid gaming thing.  I had said I was going to do a game stream, and then the person who’d asked me to invited me to play Minecraft on another streamer’s server (someone gave me their old [...]

This is how I spent my anniversary.

January 28 is my anniversary with Forrest.  This year, we celebrated two years together, which is, ironically, the point where Wasband and I were separated.  So clearly this is a better situation.

Anyway, on the 27th, I ate a chef salad from McAlister’s off of Mendenhall…it was around 9pm.  By midnight, I was puking my [...]

WordPress is being an anal-derby*.

I’m not getting notifications of comments, for some reason.  I’ve updated, re-selected options, etc., and nothing doing.

If I don’t reply to you, IT’S NOTHING PERSONAL, I promise!  I’m not that active as a blogger, right now, but I’m not a dick.

Carry on!

YGTBKM – I’m about to get curse-tastic up in here.

I just learned from Breda’s Facebook (trademark pending) that there’s a New Jersey school implementing a “no cursing” rule for female students.  The males, however, have simply been asked to abstain from cursing when females are near.

Allow me to quote from “The Birdcage”:

Val:  “Are you upset?”

Armand:  “…and let me tell you why.”
