A Good Old Fashioned Kick In The Ass

October 1, 2012 // Posted in Living, People, Thoughts (Tags: , , , , ) |  Comments Off on A Good Old Fashioned Kick In The Ass

Back in the day, it used to be that the only time and place a kid would/could get a sticker as a reward for good behavior was either at school or the doctor’s and dentist’s office. But now a days I am seeing all kinds of stores that are handing them out and not necessarily as a reward for good behavior, they are handing them out a lot of times just to get the fucking bratty kid to shut up or to stop the crying or the tantrum that they are experiencing, which to me is just plain wrong. And I don’t think that I’m the only one that feels this way.

Now don’t get me wrong, I usually love kids, but I despise the little shits that are not trained to behave themselves while in a public place and it really gets my goat when they haven’t been taught to say the magic words of please and thank you.  For the most part I blame the parents but sometimes they are just plain BAD kids no matter what the parents say and do, but that is something that their parents need to address. Sometime a good old fashioned kick in the ass can works wonders.

 

 

I Am Going To Vote

September 25, 2012 // Posted in Future, Living, Money, People, Shopping (Tags: , , , , , , ) |  Comments Off on I Am Going To Vote

I was raised and have always lived by the motto “never pay full price for anything”, as many of us have and this policy is spreading like wildfire all throughout the country. With the economy not getting any better, in fact it is getting worse for all the people that I know and love. It’s so bad that I actually can’t think of a single soul that I know that is doing OK, much less doing all right or doing well, or even getting better mind you. That just really sucks. I’d give anything to have a conversation with someone that is on the positive side, but right they are full of sorrow and heartache all thanks to our government, thank you very much!

This fucking election is really getting folks stirred up. I don’t even go onto Facebook anymore because of all the bull shit and mud slinging that is going on there concerning the election. I have been struggling with deciding who to vote for this November. I am hoping that the up and coming televised debates will help me make a decision by then. Both parties have good and bad in them and as far as I’m concerned they are both full of shit. I hate having to decide which is the lessor of two evils. It just doesn’t seem right to me. But I am going to vote, I promise you that.

Halloween

With Halloween coming up here soon I’ve been thinking about many of the Halloween festivities of my youth. My own memories of Halloween are really of all the great fun, year after year as I was growing up in the suburbs on the east coast. We lived in an established neighborhood and the parents didn’t worry about letting the kids head out to go door to door for the night. We had to eat dinner first – it was always at 6:00 pm sharp. Then we bolted out the door to catch up with our friends and we had to be home before 10. We never had any trouble with other kids or any fucking perverts. It was always a lot of fun back in the day. We weren’t really thrilled with getting an apple put in our trick or treat bags, but at least we were not afraid to eat the damn thing for fear of a razor blade or some other type of shit being hidden in it.

Things have sure changed. There is no fucking way I would allow my kids to go out on their own, that is if I had any kids, which I don’t.  If they went out, I’d be right there along side with them. I worry about perverts but worry more about gangs of teens and even shootings in some parts of town. I’d walk the streets with my kids and carry the flashlight, and I’d stay at the end of the driveway to let them go to the door on their own. But we all would most definitely go out together and stay together the entire time, and if we don’t know who lives in the house we would just walk on by.

 

So fucking full

April 21, 2012 // Posted in Eating Out, Friends, Living, People (Tags: , , ) |  Comments Off on So fucking full

OMG I am so fucking full. We went to Joe’s Crab Shack to eat and pigged out for hours on blue crabs. I absolutely love blue crabs. I don’t know why, but they are one of my favorite things to eat. I also love Alaskan Snow crab legs as well, but there is nothing like sitting with friends and picking blue crabs for hours. It’s about atmosphere as well as the food, and the company you eat with. You have to go to a place like that with people who love to eat blue crabs as much as you do. If someone doesn’t like to eat them, they get bored and it kid of ruins the whole experience when they keep asking if you are done yet so you can leave.

Fortunately for me, I have some great friends that love it as much as I do and we had a lot of fun. Pitchers of beer and mound of crab legs to pick and lots of really good conversation make for a wonderful night. Now that I am home, I am just trying not to move too much because I am so stuffed. I know that I am going to sleep really good tonight, that’s for sure.

Music festivals

April 15, 2012 // Posted in Future, Living, Music, Outdoors, People (Tags: , , ) |  Comments Off on Music festivals

I fucking love the music festivals that go on every summer. They are just about to start this year and I cannot wait to go. Memphis in May begins soon and we are all going in one large group. This is one of my fucking favorite festivals out of all of them. We have decided to camp instead of staying at a hotel since two of my friends have campers and the rest of us have tents to sleep in. I will take my tent, but since it is just me, I will probably not have to use it. That is fine, because I have some friends who don’t have a tent and they will more than likely use mine.

Camping will save us money on a lot of food and such. We can make breakfast each morning and dinner at night. The only food we will have to buy will be lunch where ever we happen to be at the time. Since the festival is about music and art and stuff, there is no telling where we might be. I am so stoked to be able to go this year, because last year I didn’t make it to this festival. I cannot wait!
