There are a few things I should enumerate (first time I ever used it in a sentence, yay me!). There are five things that I do not do.
- Fly – If God had meant me to fly, he would have given me the bitchin’est set of kickass wings that anyone ever had. But he did not. Why? He did not want me to fly.
- Dance – I don’t dance. I’m not sure if I can’t keep a beat, or if I just can’t dance, but I don’t dance.
- Ride Roller Coasters – I really have no crazy desire to see my lunch come back up anytime soon.
- Bungee Jump – Similar to roller coasters, though this time, I have no desire to see my lunch fall out of me by means of gravity.
- Flirt – This is mostly because I just really suck at it.
Naturally, there are always caveats to any list like this. There are, in certain situations, certain parameters which will get me to do some of these things.
But that is a topic for another 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.
Some time ago, more years than I care to remember, I decided that I would try to get into shape. That… didn’t take. But, in that process, I did make a decision that has stuck to me even today. I had decided to eliminate sodas from my diet. Not just the usual delicious normal sodas, but even the icky aftertaste diet ones too. Since I made that decision, I have not had any sort of fizzy drink.
Still, there are some flavors that I do miss.
For a while now, I have been spoiled. My current car, though not great in the snow, does have one feature that my Jeep did not have: satellite radio. Even with connections for iPods, I will still find myself listening to the radio, and flipping a lot. I will cycle through my programmed stations searching for something to listen to. But there are also a few songs that will get me to stop flipping. A couple of them will even make me turn my car into a rolling karaoke club.
Since I was not able to post my usual Saturday Song this week thanks to the blizzard of 2013 (note, this is the blizzard of 2013, not Nemo, or Charlotte, just the blizzard of 2013), I figured that I would take a moment to pick out some of the songs that I will be listening to this Valentine’s Day.
First up is a classic.
Next up is a personal favorite from one of my personal favorite bands which has had one other song in the Saturday Songs, Queensryche.
Next up, we turn to the Nightmare on Elm Street 4: Dream Master soundtrack for the Vinnie Vincent Invasion.
Next up is Weird Al Yankovic with a thematic parody of the power ballad form.
Finally, we have a pick from the first American Idol, Kelly Clarkson.
Let’s see if you can guess the theme.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and three blocks up, the world seems to be turning its eye to romance.
Yet, for a small group of people, Valentine’s Day is not a joy. For those people, there are 5 tell-tale signs telling them that maybe the dating scene is not for them that they should heed.
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.
On February 2nd, the groundhog comes out of its burrow and takes a look around. If he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. If not, then spring will be near.
That is unless, of course, that groundhog lives in Punxsutawney, then he is forcibly pulled out of his home by a couple of guys in top hats who then put him on a pedestal to see if he sees his shadow… underneath several hundred camera lights and flashes.
But, what is not known is that the groundhog has made many predictions beyond the weather. These predictions, however, are not so widely known.
As you may have guessed from the weekly posts about what I think are the picks of the comic week, I am a comic collector. I still like to read a wide variety of comics from all sorts of genres. But, there are a few comic titles that I have not been all that excited for lately. They are just losing their appeal to me.
