Weird Ramblings from a Warped Mind


There Is a Place for All of Us

There I was… scanning the online the news sites. Boring… boring… boring… boring… BINGO!! Sometimes you have to scan a lot before one jumps out at ya. And sometimes you might scan a day or two with nothing. But this was GOLD. I could work with this one: A Retirement Home for Prostitutes Yeah… THAT […]

Must You Yell??

STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING!!! NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THIS!! IT’S BETTER THAN SLICED BREAD!! HOW HAVE YOU LIVED THIS LONG WITHOUT IT?? YOUR LIFE MUST BE MISERABLE!! AND YES… I DO HAVE TO YELL AT YOU!! Whatever it is… you need two of them. Regardless. You need two sets of these bowls to keep […]

Makes Sense to Me

I love many things. But two of my favorites are idiots and obviousness. How could we survive without them? I love to read the news and see a story where someone has done something so dumb even I go… “Well that’s what you get.” Cause I can be an idiot myself. And I love seeing […]

I’m Not a Critic, But…

20 years ago, on March 18, 1990, a pair of thieves pretending to be police pulled off what’s considered the largest art heist in history, stealing 13 artworks, including paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Manet, from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.

Bigger ISN’T Always Better

Live Here? Speak Like It!

I received a letter from Census2010 today. It was addressed to me… my name… my address. And the purpose of this letter? To inform me that I would be receiving the ACTUAL Census2010 form in about a week. Huh?? They sent me a letter to tell me I would be receiving the form? I realize […]

I Agree With Mr. White

I appreciate good humor… both the ice cream and things that make me laugh. And Ron White of the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” fame summed up my thoughts exactly a while back. I agree that you can’t fix stupid. Stupid is normally ingrained in a person. Folks are just born stupid. And like he said, […]

Chores

I have chores. Normally something every day. It builds character. Or so I’m told. And I guess that is true since I am frequently told what a character I am. My chores usually aren’t too hard. I know that surprises you. I don’t break down the car engine and rebuild it. That’s outside of my […]
