My daughter singing

My daughter seems to hum and sing a lot while in the house.  I could be in the living room with my laptop and she may be in the office drawing.  She hums.  She hums beautiful songs, most of wish she makes up as she goes.  I could listen to this stuff all day.  I love her so much.  Sometimes she sings lyrics too but mostly she hums.

I just find it amazing.  I’m glad she is so musical.  I hope I can listen to this for a long time.  It’s so good.

Stuff

It’s almost comical to see how people just seem to want to get more “stuff”.  Everyone seems like they are in the constant pursuit of things.  Worthless things.  Things that they think may give them pleasure, status, mostly a bunch of stuff they don’t need.

It just makes me think of the movie Fight Club where Tyler Durden says these two things:

-“We’re consumers. We are bi-products of a lifestyle obsession. Murder, crime, poverty, these things don’t concern me. What concerns me are celebrity magazines, television with 500 channels, some guy’s name on my underwear.”-

-“Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need.”-

You can’t really say it much better than that.  We all need to wake up and quit with the bullshit that we just keep doing everyday.  Now I know there are some genuine people out there that don’t have extra to spend on stuff, so I’m not referring to them.  I do find it funny that sometimes I see someone living in a 1950’s home with 1300 square feet and they have a 50″ TV in the living room and a $40,000 vehicle in the drive way.  What the hell?

Hey whatever……I guess.  Rock on with your bad self. [:confused smile:]

Wait for it… —-> No you wait for it. I have other shit to do you lame-ass.

It is what it is —-> and what exactly is IT jack-wagon?

Just sayin’ —-> what pussies say at the end of something so they don’t get knocked the fuck out.

Epic —-> an old record company. Plus that name is not over-used at all. You fuckmess.

When people spell the word “what” like this: “whut”

Using the word “sick” as a synonym for “rad” or “awesome”

Grab-bag O’ Thoughts

► Don’t spend too much time in NYC, it will make you calloused.

► I’m blown away by the amount of bullshit that is on TV. People actually watch this vein crap? Are you fucking serious?

► I’m thankful for my little cozy house that I complain about sometimes because I have it better than most.

► I really love how in NYC there is no room so they just pile up trash on the sidewalks. Yuck.

► The 2012 presidential election may just be the first time I don’t vote. I think they are all jackasses.

► I started to like the show American Horror Story….then it just got too dark (evil).

► I do like the show “The Walking Dead”.

► Male flight attendants are weird and seem “stuck up” to me.

► There don’t seem to be a lot of fat people in NYC. I wonder if it is due to everyone walking so much?

Things going on as of late…

Busy at the new job, but loving it. Recently was blindsided by the fact that a loved one may have cancer, but don’t know yet. We’ll deal with it the best we can and leave the rest up to God. I try hard to not worry about things I cannot change.

Had an old 1952 Winchester Model 94 .30-30 gifted to me. For being 59 years old the thing looks like it’s was either never fired or it’s only fired a few rounds. It’s not “mint” but it does have a few “character marks”. Those are the best. It used to be my wife’s grandfather’s rifle. It’s a great old gun. I love old lever guns. Gonna give ‘er a good cleaning and take it shooting and get some enjoyment out of something old. I like old things.

I’ve had an iPhone 4 for about 6 months now and I have no complaints. I love the phone and once again, think Apple did a kick butt job on this phone. I’m excited for the new stuff to come out in June but I can’t see myself replacing anything as I’m very satisfied with the iPhone 4.

I want to read the book Walden by Henry David Thoreau. It seems like a great, back to just the basics of life, book. I will do this sometime soon.

Drink water!

Love my job

I’m thankful to have a job that I love. I seriously am. I don’t take it for granted one day. I work for as an IT guy for an NFL team and it’s the best job I’ve ever had. Some days you work hard but you also get to play hard. It is the first job I’ve ever had that I sometimes don’t want to take a vacation day from because I have that much fun at work. I love what I do. I actually get paid to do my hobby. I’m not usually one to toot my own horn but I’m very good at what I do and I will keep it that way.

Right now I’m sitting at home and thinking that I’m off tomorrow and actually wondering if I should just go in to work instead. I know I sounds crazy but I like my job that much. Not many people can say that.

I’m thankful to God for all that He’s given me.

Why I Carry a Gun!

This has been sent to me a couple times and I do not know the true author of this. I feel it is worth passing along!

—————————

Why Carry a Gun?

My old grandpa said to me ‘Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin’.

I don’t carry a gun to kill people.
I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun to scare people.
I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m paranoid.
I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil.
I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government.
I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry.
I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone.
I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m a cowboy.
I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy.

I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man.
I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate.
I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don’t carry a gun because I love it.
I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

Police protection is an oxymoron.
Free citizens must protect themselves.
Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin’.
