Random Thoughts 11/4/13

First let me get some negative crap out of the way. I don’t even care if you read this part , I just need to write it down. Details on this are intentionally absent, sometimes I share too much and this is one of those times. I have been known to adjust my psych meds up our down as needed, something I know better but I still do it. I was out walking the dog the other morning about 4 am. Oh yea I got a dog more to follow on that in a post all of its own. I ran into a couple of drunk kids in their late 20’s. This has happened before and I have been able to talk my way out of the problem. This time they grabbed me then kicked my dog. Then it happened I snapped and my dark side came out. I put the larger one on the ground and the one who kicked my dog I used to much force because I was pissed off and he ended up in the hospital with several broken ribs. Normally I would have felt bad about this but this time I didn’t. I got away with the whole thing because they didn’t know me. It did however have ramifications. I got an ass chewing from my pill pusher, Physical therapist and a weekly appointment with my hardcore therapist.
That same day I was over at the office where I live, still in a pissy mood and got into an argument with the manager about the apartment I live in now. I wore her down so much she agreed to let me move to another place without waiting the normal six months so I could get my dish back up and my 4G to work all day long. The only positive think to come out of this.
******Please don’t comment on this part ******

Quickly moving on.

I now have my 4G back up until about 9 am then I lose it. The wifi at the clubhouse is down now so on days like yesterday when I had a chance to catch up I had to go to MacDonald’s and use my damm phone again. So once again I apologize for my lack of comments on your post it takes forever to do on my phone. Plus after my 2 day absence I had about 60 post to address.

I am pretty excited about this week. I have my orientation at the Humane Society tomorrow. Then on Wednesday I have a 4 hour animal handling course, followed on Thursday with a 8 hour dog handling course because of the areas I picked to volunteer in. Somewhere mixed in all of that I have meeting with a counselor to see what area I fit in and they need the most help. Normally they don’t want you to volunteer more than 4 hours a day. I want to do 8 hours a day three times a week. I just wont do more than 3 days a week or it will become a job. So I guess its up to them how much they need or want my help.

I started staying up an hour later than two hours to get myself more on a schedule with the normal world. The result was I now sleep a good five hours or more at night,something I haven’t done in years. It has made a world of difference in how I feel and even think.

With all I have going on, much more than I want to share on this post, my time on here may be reduced even further. I struggle now to post twice a week and keep up. I can no longer make the promise I will always keep up with all of your post. Someone told me in a comment the other day that the real world kept getting in Her way, that seems to be my case for now. I just don’t know only time will tell.

I forgot a couple of things. The gremlins at WordPress are back at me again. I am loosing friends I didn’t mean to. I have finally switched to using the reader when on my computer. It doesn’t work well on my phone because It always goes back to the first post when I exit one. I still have the emails coming so I can use them on the phone.


Quick Post 10/25/12

Has my little corner of the blogging world gone post crazy. I have gotten rid of about a dozen followers in the last week or so. Now I am only following about 45 blogs which is normally very easy.

For some reason the ones I have now are posting much more. People who used to post once a week are now posting many times a week. A lot of you have gone to multiple post per day. This is all fine they are your blogs. I just thought maybe there was some contest going on, or certain planets were aligned or I was missing something 🙂

I have a lot to say but no time. All of a sudden I am being pulled from many directions for my time.That only leaves me with one or two hours a day to get on here.

Jut keep in mind when I am going through you post my time is limited and when I do comment I have to use my phone with its small virtual keyboard, still not willing to take my computer to public WiFi, even in the complex I live in because now there are always many people on it.

I need some response from you all about reblogs. I used to do one a week and as I recall they were not to popular. The majority of you neglected the one I did about a week ago is the main reason I am asking. Just be honest with me, I am not going to waste what little time on here doing a reblog once a week if nobody is going to look at it.

Random Thoughts 10/19/13

I have tried several times in the last day or so to write this post and it keeps coming out like a whining little bitch. So let me try again without the details and a more pleasant ending. I’ve had another week with more crap coming at me from sources I have long forgot about and some I wasn’t even aware of, plus a couple of financial issues I wasn’t prepared for and had to dip into the old savings again. Somewhere in the middle of all that my brain did its 48 hour shut down from lack of sleep and all I did for 48 hours was sleep, eat and stare at the boob tube. I have the tools to snap out of that but have found it works better just to ride it out. The brain is a lot like a hard drive without enough deep sleep it can’t process memories, defrag and reset itself.

Still working six days a week on my back, no matter what goes on that has to remain my priority for now. Got into an argument with the gal from PT about muscle building 101 and she changed my exercise routine to fit what I knew was right. I still go in there once a day for 30 minutes until the end of the month then they will cut me loose. I did get my own portable decompression table to use at home. That thing is like getting a shot of morphine, it only last about two hours and I can use it twice a day but that’s 4 hours a day with absolutely no pain, I will gladly take that !

I put a halt on all I was doing to my apartment, this is the first time I have ever lived in a downstairs unit and I hate it. The guy above me is a nice likeable type but he is a big stocky guy. Every time he walks across the floor I can hear it, I can’t get dish, my 4G won’t come in because I dropped down 12 feet and have the upstairs balcony hanging over my two best areas. I dropped my 4G plan down to 4GB the least my contract would let me get away with. So as of three days ago I am switching to 95% wifi. This means for me to follow all of you I have to get on wifi when the club house is open. There are other spots I can use early in the morning when my brain is fresh but I have to use my phone from these, I don’t use my laptop on public wifi areas, I have all of my financial data on here and wont run the risk of being hacked. If I am on my phone, my comments will be fewer and shorter. I am still very busy with a whole bunch of other projects, it is strange for me not to have a lot of free time. I think I can still keep up with you all but one or two post a week is all I have time to put out right now.

Enough of the negative stuff. I just decided not to continue this post in the way I was going to, don’t ask I am more confused than you are !!

A Shifting Opinion

I am not a fan of reblogs but this one is very controversial, something I never shy away from.


It’s no secret I have strong opinions regarding America’s constitutional right to bear arms My Canadian heart and soul lacks any point of reference to allow understanding of the NRA or gun lobbies. My stance is unlikely to budge when it comes to unelected, non-profit basking bullies being allowed to call the shots. Likewise fanatics like George Zimmerman, or the lust some Americans have for semi-automatic weapons. My tendency has always been to dismiss legal gun ownership outright. As a Canadian; our system seems to work just fine – hunting rifles yes, anything else and you have some explaining to do.

At least that was the case before an innocent response by wordpresser xbox2121 got me pondering.


Last night I wrote about the crash of Canadian cell phones for a number of nail biting hours from coast to coast. Pondering what we would do if an actual disaster took…
