RST: Homeless man, Laziness, Home alone, Snow and An explanation.


It's Tuesday, which means, time again for another Random Shit Tuesday

My randomness...
I'm happy for this man. Really, I am. But can we please stop talking about him now? Yeah, I'm looking at you, Today Show. Please stop featuring stories about this man. I could really use a tear-free morning. 

I mean, okay. Tell us the story once, let me shed my tears, and then let's be done with it. Did you really need to then reunite him with his mother the next day, show footage of him calling her "Mommy", and then discuss how his mom doesn't want to be disappointed by him again?

*Sigh* I'm tearing up right now.


Have you seen this yet? 

It's no wonder foreigners hate Americans. We're so gluttonous and lazy!


I've spent some time home alone recently. It sucks. I've noticed that I have, um, some odd behaviors when I'm home alone. 
  • I turn numerous lights on throughout the house and don't care about turning them off for fear that something might get me if I do.
  • When I sleep, not only do I close the bedroom door, but I also lock it. Yeah, it gets a tad nippy in there, but at least I have a barrier between me and would-be murderers.
  • I talk to myself.
  • I talk to inanimate objects ("Hey bed! I can't wait to crawl into you!").
  • I eat poorly. I mean, really, really poorly.
  • And I don't clean up after myself. At all.

I can't believe I'm going to say this. I miss snow. Yeah, I said it. I miss real snow. I mean, if it's going to be so freakin' cold, there should at least be snow on the ground, right? Right now we have a weather warning in effect for our area. Apparently there's *gasp* an 80% chance it's going to snow tonight, and we might get *gasp* 1/2"-1" of snow accumulation. Whatever will we do? How will get anywhere tomorrow in such horrendous conditions? I should really go and stock up on some bread. And milk. Crap. What if it starts snowing while I'm at the store? How will I get home? WHAT WILL I DO?

Oh, right, I grew up in an area and a time when it was quite common to get hit with multiple feet of snow in one storm.


I'm losing that blogging feeling. I think I've mentioned this before, but I'm perfectly content with my life right now. I have no inspiration or motivation for blogging anymore. In fact, the thought has crossed my mind (numerous times) to quit altogether. I think my humor and cleverness comes from a dark, bitter place inside of me, and that place has been silent for quite awhile now.

I started this blog as an outlet while trying to deal with my nomadic and confusing lifestyle. I was trying to figure shit out. It appears that my life is in the process of settling down, and my shit is figured out. I know where I'm headed. I know, for the most part, what tomorrow will bring. 

I'd hate to give up on this blog altogether. But as my life is changing, I think it's time to revamp this ole' bloggy blog. There are changes on the horizon. A new voice. A new look. A new focus.

Maybe that woman just needs to learn how to cook.

You can have our snow. It's been a high of 20 this week. Ew.

I too talk to inanimate objects. Often. I also make a lot of sound affects and noises. Most of the time I have NO IDEA i'm doing this, until people point it out to me and call me weird. Whatevs.

The best thing about pets? I'm not talking to myself, I'm talking to them. I swear.

I was in a news blackout that kept from hearing anything about that homeless dude. (Is it wrong that I think his hair was cooler before the makeover?)

I'm glad that stuff is going well... although I sorta miss the life-sustaining vitriol that kept your blog going. But I'm glad to hear that, rather than quitting, you're going to take things in a new direction. Keep me posted, and I'll keep reading.
