As anyone who’s read this blog may have figured out, I play a lot of games. I’m not necessarily good at them, but I play them. And, like a lot of people, I have gotten into my fair share of online games. In this case, I don’t mean World of Warcraft or the (sadly) defunct City of Heroes, I mean those annoying Facebook games that you start playing and can’t stop. Either those, or the app games you download to your phone (or, in my case, iPod touch) and play. And, I have had fun with a lot of these games, for a while, until I get bored or I get ticked off. A lot of times, they just tick me off.
Earlier this week, I posted one of my red flags for online dating. That simple post got a lot of people asking, “Well, do you have any other dating red flags?”
(Actually, no one asked that, but it sounds better to begin that way)
Recently, heart disease, specificly heart attacks, struck real close to home for me. I wanted to post a couple of links from the American Heart Association about Heart Attacks.
You can also go to the American Heart Association website to learn more about heart disease and how you can help.

I’m realizing that after 850 some odd (okay, mostly odd) posts, I am starting to run low on ideas. Not Picks of the Week, I will always have those, except on a bad comics week. And I have a number of selections for my Saturday Songs already lined up. But, that only takes care of two days out of the week, and I want to keep posting daily until I hit 1,000.
So, I have four choices.
- Turn to the audience for ideas. I mean, come on, you must have something out there.
- Post a Frequently asked questions post. This is a little difficult since the most common question I’m asked is, “Do you want to see my special webcam?”
- Post the secret post that I have in reserve, lest in reserve because the topic is that off-color.
- Start posting chapters of one of my NaNoWriMos. Since none of them have been edited, these posts would be very rough.
Thus, I turn to you, the audience, once more. What should I do? You can leave your comments/suggestions/questions in the comments section of this post.
It you have never used an online dating site, then congratulations, you don’t feel like a complete loser. But, for the rest of us, there are a number out there to try. But, just like in real life, there are a number of people you do not want to run into.
Let me preface this list: I am pulling from personal experience, so all of my references will be feminine in nature. But, I am positive that there are a ton of women out there who have run into the male equivalents.
There is nothing like flipping through the MSN news feeds and seeing someone you know on it. It’s even stranger when the reason he’s on it is for all the wrong reasons.
I’m experimenting with a different way of presenting some of the categories on my blog. You can check it out my just clicking Posts on the menu, or follow this link.
Any feedback on it would be much appreciated.
Thanks to a minor wind storm (and possibly some damage from a slightly careless tree removal person), our household is experiencing cable internet difficulties the likes of which will probably not get resolved until Tuesday (hopefully). In the meantime, rather than trying to finish off a mission or two in the brief periods of time in which the connection is good, I thought it would be a good idea to consider a few things that can be done without the internet.
