Break something with Jesus this weekend

This is the weekend I get a crowbar to tear apart a wooden monstrosity in my home. I’m moving soon, and I don’t want to bring this dead weight with me.

Things are great, etc…

Work is busy and fun. A whole lot of drama has exited my life, and I feel more like a whole person again. I may eventually get back to philosophizing on this blog again soon, because I don’t have to deal with lawyers or other kinds of stress.

Secure

I’m on the way to Houston to see my sweetie, waiting at my gate, and it’s strange to think how normal it felt to shuffle through the security theater.  Everyone goes through the motions. Do we even remember why we take shoes off anymore? Are they truly a threat?The x-rays scattered all over me, but…

Reflecting

I’ve had some time to reflect on things.  The need for kindness, especially. Kindness is something that I value, and it’s something that I especially want to practice personally.  Sometimes I succeed, and there are times when it’s obvious to me when I fail at it. Lately, I’ve met new friends who have shown me kindness….

Final

The End.  No more.  The other shoe dropped.  Over and Done. Just before this past weekend, my divorce was signed by all interested parties and a judge okayed it, so I’m officially no longer married. So what does it mean?  Anything at all?  Am I supposed to be happy?  Sad?  I know I’m relieved, if…

Still here

So, I’m not writing about a lot online at the moment.  Still in the midst of divorce stuff, and I think it’s best to just keep pretty much everything to myself while it’s still going on.  But I’m going to get back to a more quasi-regular posting schedule once that’s all over with and the…

That time where I almost accidentally put a spider in my anus

Boys and Girls, sit back and throw another log on the fire while Grandpa Swami tells you a story.  Let’s see, did I already tell you the one about the electrical conduit that bled oil? I did?  Well how about the time I ate a whole Taco Bell taco, and somehow didn’t regret it.  Did…

Oh Crap This Is Still Here

That’s right, I still have a blog. No, no, I didn’t just forget that I had a blog.  I’m just really really bad at keeping some kind of writing schedule for it.  No excuse, just an explanation. Do I have any thoughts of a political nature?  Not recently.  It’s the same old shit, isn’t it?…

Feminists are what now?

This will be quick. There’s a trending hashtag on twitter: #FeministsAreUgly It’s immediately clear that the tag is meant to troll.  I’m not sure how the tag started, and I’m not willing to wade so far into the swirling bowl that I actually touch the poop.  But it’s obviously not some kind of ‘conversation starter’…

Diversity in Media is *everyone’s* calling

My buddy Rob has a unique POV on how to get more diversity in all aspects of media. Diversity in Media I would like to add a bit to that thought.  We should not only create diverse media, but we should consume diverse media.  Content creators like Hollywood and game studios and authors and musicians tend to…

The tyranny of my plugged-up ear

I’m at home from the office today, much more healthy than yesterday, but still coughing and feeling more or less gross. It doesn’t help that my left ear is having difficulty hearing because of some fluid that I’d rather not think about.  I’m able to hear clearly and relieve the pressure on my sinuses when…
