Names have power. They help define you as a person, unlock doors in social situations, and give insight into your personal history. The choice of a name should not be taken lightly, as the child must cope with it all through their life, unless they take the time and money to legally change it. So, if you name your child Phineas Howell-Rockefeller Jones, please don’t’ be shocked if people ask you about why you chose something so hoity-toity. Especially if your best friends call you “Punkie”.

When I was in my twenties, I was not a person who watched a lot of television. I occasionally turned the TV on for background noise, but I didn’t have much interest in actively watching. I had cable because I liked to watch the occasional crime drama or criminal procedural show, but I was never one to sit and watch the Big Bang Theory, House, or Dexter.

It feels like work has ruled my life for the past few months. The routine is gotten up early; do the job of two people for eight hours; come home mentally exhausted; maybe eat dinner and pass out in front of the television. I haven’t had the time to do much of anything else.

Over the past year, I haven’t been able to sit down and write up a blog post. Not because I’ve been too busy, but because my job requires me to sit at a computer for 8 hours a day and type all day. Yes, I know it’s a different type of typing, but I promise you by the time I get back to the house I don’t want to see a computer. I have however, kept in touch with my other hobbies such as social media and the like, but not to the extent where I can work up enough steam for a good old-fashioned blog post. This will change.
I went over my records last night and realised that I’m still on WordPress. Here’s how that process went:
1. I am paying for a domain and hosting.
2. I enjoy blogging.
3. I have opinions and don’t feel like holding them in.
4. Therefore, I am bound and determined to start this blog back up.
I am not going to be on any set schedule. I refuse to be committed, especially because none of you ever comment on my posts. I will, however, give myself a minimum of two posts per month on relevant topics. I will rant, rave, bitch, and complain about what ever is on my mind.
Warning: Political correctness is not and will never be found on this blog. Its against my creed. I will give you good and funny topics. Funny according to me, so if you don’t’ like it— go read the New York Times.
Sunday night was a night of terror. Fifty-nine people lost their lives when Stephen Paddock, age 64 years old of Mesquite, Nevada, rained gunfire down upon concertgoers at a Jason Aldean concert on the Los Vegas strip. According to reports, at least 527 were hurt either by the shooting itself or during the crowd’s panicked frenzy. Major kudos go out to the Vegas police for rapidly identifying the shooter’s location at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, and quickly acting to resolve the situation. Stephen Paddock was not taken alive—police believe that he took his own life.

While sitting in my living room this afternoon I heard the slamming of a door, and a woman’s voice raised in anger. Not at a boyfriend or husband, but at her child. I almost shrugged it off, until I heard what cause Mommy Dearest’s outrage. The child had, horror of horrors, swung on her in front of company. Continue reading “Mommy Knows Best”
When I was a child, my brother told me to come up with a list of rules to live by. The idea behind that was to give me a sense of what type of person I wanted to become, and to develop a framework by which I could achieve my goals. That list gets longer every day as I come up with new rules to handle life’s constantly changing landscape.
