Wednesday's Digressions

  • Whitecentric radio stations play ads for investment opportunities, foundation repair companies, lake lots and pills to make your weiner either harder or longer.
  • Blackcentric radio stations play ads for payday loan places, payday loan relief places, cel phone plans, personal injury lawyers and night clubs.
  • This past weekend (today is 11/14/2016) the only productive things I did were laundry and clean the kitchen- otherwise I slept and watched Teh Walking Dead.
  • Perfect.
  • The always comes out as teh the first time I type it.
  • Finally I tried Tastykake brand buttered iced cupcakes. Verdict: good to very good.
  • The front desk staff where I work gave me a cookie with a flag made of red, white and blue icing on it for Veteran's Day.
  • Nice.
  • This past weekend I watched Shut In. It was literally terrible. My date took it personally that I recognized it as a terrible movie. 
  • Odd.
  • The theater had the reclining electric seats though- very nice. I wanted to take a nap there.
  • From the Blogfather: "If someone condescendingly says, "We live in a Republic, not a Democracy!" I'm guessing that's about the only thing they know about government." If I disagreed with virtually everything he says- I could not argue that point. He is absolutely correct in that assessment.

Monday's Missives


  • Not unusual: I awoke this morning feeling like a pound and a half of dog mess that had been stuffed into a one pound bag. Kinda different: I have been up for only  17 minutes now and feel like a million dollars.
  • At the old Decatur dump trash was just thrown out on the ground. When there got to be too much- it was set on fire. As a bonus, there were self serve pits dug by backhoe where people could dump dead animals. I had to go check it out every time we went and look at the dead calves and dogs.
  • Bonus information: when people left they often took home more stuff than they dumped. 
    A boy and his dog.
    I sent this to somebody who replied, That made me so happy I cried! Easily impressed I guess.
  • Rock is not dead. Rock being made today is as good any- ever.
  • The last set of tires I bought for my present truck cost 800 dollars. Holy smokes. Tires for the first truck I bought in my married life could be found on sale for 100 buck for a set of 4. I freaked plum out when the second set for the same truck cost me 125 buck.
  • I could have spent less (as in 40% less) on my new tires but I would have had to wait 1-2 days for them to get the cheaper set from another store and then I would have  to come back for the mounting. I did not want to wait- nor did I want to risk driving any distance without a spare.
  • There were long periods in my life when I could not have even dreamed of thinking like that.
  • Update  (07/11/2017) I looked at my receipt. The kid at Discount Tire overcharged me by 100 buck by sticking me with the road hazard thing which, I had specifically declined in my conversation opener about the tires in first place.
  • It is cool this time I guess. I do not tempt fate in situations like this- so will not argue the point.
  • Bonus update: the tires were actually a little over 800 buck. There are plenty of cars in my past that did not cost me 800 buck.
    I inherited a Dinotelevision. It reminded me of a Sanyo? television I had that came out right at the tail end of these boxy behemoths. It must have been high end due to its quality (and as I seem to recall also due to it's specs and retail price).  The picture was fantastic but holy smokes- it was huge! I finally gave it to somebody who didn't really need it- the picture was just so great they couldn't pass it up and it was put it in a den or spare bedroom etc.
