About Me

old. Boring. Too complacent to realize my full potential.

Journal Archives

Wow. Just wow.

just finished watching the cnn town hall with beto. Listening to him speak brings tears to my eyes. I'm a 42 year old man, but there is just something about him. It's Obamaesque. There is hope for our future. Not just in Texas, but i believe nationwide. I know he said he has no plans for running for prez, but i believe it's inevitable. Right now, i feel damn proud to be a Texan. It's been a long time since I've been able to say that.

I have this image

of Ernie McCracken (Bill Murray's character from Kingpin) celebrating after defeating Roy Munson (Woody Harrelson's character), and I am convinced that is how trump will react if the repukes keep both the house and Senate this November. That thought alone is enough to motivate me to vote early. Ugh, i hope we at least get 250 house seats.

USA Today

has an article about "The Democratic Party Left Me Behind". The few lines i read go on to say, "and I'm not the only one." Something else about blah, blah, hatred from the left, blah blah. The bots have infected some staff writer apparently. I hope normal people aren't stupid enough to believe this horseshit.

hooray!

russia is out of the world cup, defeated by Croatia in penalty kicks!

All i can say is

GO CROATIA!!!!!

I hate russia.

Hey Texas DUers!

anyone at the rally at Houston city hall?

All i can say about these horrific times we find ourselves in

is that once this boil on America's ass is lanced, beer industry stock is going to plummet just based on the piles of money i won't be spending on their products anymore. Come on liver, stay with me! Breathe! You're gonna make it! I need you buddy!

I've lived with something for a while now.

I assume it's some type of anxiety. Every day that i go to work i feel extremely sick to my stomach and my brain starts worrying about what's going to happen. I know it has to do with the thought of interacting with customers. Unfortunately, i work in retail, so you see the problem here. This has gone on for 20+ years. I'm 42! I shouldn't feel like this. Somehow, I've managed to fake my way into management with every company I've worked for. I'm not a social person and am very introverted so it takes a lot of energy to interact. My wife says i should look into medication, but i would like to not go that route. I've thought about seeing someone about this, but still concerned about being prescribed medication. What would actually help is not having a job in retail. Anyway, just wondering if anyone who has had this type of anxiety could recommend any non-prescription ways to overcome it. Thanks for listening!

A bit of serendipity on my birthday.

this was the strangest thing. Last Thursday (the 19 th) i turned 24 (If you look at it in a mirror). My wife and a coworker of her's happened to stop at a convenience store near where they work in the Woodlands (north of Houston). A man in the store was buying a duffel bag full of cigarette cartons. The coworker struck up a conversation with the guy asking about this odd purchase. Turns out, he is the stage manager for a band called the Struts, who was opening for a little band known as the Foo Fighters that night at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. My wife jokingly asked, "Hey, are you gonna hook us up with tickets?" To her surprise, the guy said, "sure." He gets her info and she receives a text later saying 2 tickets are waiting for her at will call.

She texts me while I'm at work saying she got us tickets to see the Foo Fighters (her friend told her to take me since it was my birthday). I didn't even realize they were playing a concert near us. I was surprised, and i figured she had bought them ( i didn't know about the convenience store thing yet).

After work, i meet my wife at a mall near the venue. As we're driving to the concert, she tells me the story. At this point I'm thinking, "oh lord. She got duped big time by some chain smoking weirdo." But, we get to will call and there are indeed 2 tickets waiting for her! So we are expecting lawn seats, which are far back from the stage, but still a cool place to hang out and watch a show. As we look at the tickets, they say section 100, which is in the roof covered area. We show our tickets to several venue workers and they keep ushering us closer and closer to the stage. Once our seats were located, we realize we are 11 rows back from the stage which is extremely close!

Holy canoli! It was an awesome night and an awesome concert, and i have to say, the best free birthday gift I've ever received!

Happy Easter everyone!

Here's hoping some goldfish left Lincoln Logs in your sock drawer!
