Rambling Nonsense

Welcome

Welcome to my blog. Please, sit down. Read. Scratch your head a bit. Waste some time.

Blogs are weird creatures in that one of their functions is to act as a diary, a public diary, which seems to be a contradiction in terms. I want to write about some intimate details about myself and the things that surround me, but then I wonder, should I really be doing that in this day and age? Is the stuff I write about…

Testing Something

Just testing my blog’s timezone. I didn’t realize that I had not set it properly. Let’s see if my changes worked. Ok. It worked.

Playing With Custom Fields

In WordPress, there are these things called custom fields that you can create in order to add extra data to your blog entries. You can add stuff like how you feel, a vacation countdown, your favorite color of the day and, if you have the knowledge and skill to do so, present it as text or make it a parameter value that affects the…

New Boss In Town

I’ve been waiting until today to make the announcement, but it should be official by tonight! The company I work for has been bought. The Graphic Village, a local print and marketing conglomerate recently bought Multi-Craft. Fortunately it wasn’t anything like most purchases where the buyer lays off most of the staff. Everyone’s keeping their job. I’m excited by this new thing. This looks…

A Little Pre-Bed Typing

I think I’ll move on from titling my posts with the date. That data is saved the moment I publish, so to put that in the title would be redundant. Tonight’s title is a little generic. I worry I might use this one more than once, or even consecutively. Now, enough about titles. I need to talk a little bit about changes. There are…

It’s a little cold today. It’s cold in the house. My house was built a long time ago in a galaxy not anywhere close to far away. In fact, the galaxy is right here, the Milky Way galaxy. In any case, I do believe this house was built in the late 19th – early 20th Century. It’s drafty. I don’t think it was built with…

Disconnecting

Disconnecting does not mean that I’m unplugging. I’m just disconnecting my blog from any of my social media. Why? Simply because I really don’t have and, for the time being, don’t want to have any content worth promoting. I simply desire a place to cram my random thoughts and if people stumble upon my website and find thoughts or entries worth sharing, they can…

Falling on the sword

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/first-read/dems-clean-house-leaving-gop-grapple-harassment-issue-n827321 I can’t help but think that this business with Sen. Al Franken hasn’t been designed as a form of kabuki theatre with the intent of showing how the Democratic party is more interested in social justice than political power. These accusations would have been considered simple hijinks at an earlier time, but since we have Republican individuals in about to come into high…

Manhunter – First Impressions

I just finished the first three episodes of the new David Fincher series on Netflix. It stars Johnathan Groff as Holden Ford, the FBI agent who, along with his partner Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), revolutionized the field of criminology by delving into the minds of the psychopaths to gain insights into motivations of budding and developing serial killers resulting in catching them before they…

Ever wonder what life is all about? I don’t. No, psyche. I’m always wondering.

20170907 – Topics

I need to begin focusing my blog entries on a selection of topics, a narrow selection. It’s nice that I have such a wide variety of interests, but it’s a bit of a burden. So, for the purposes of this blog, though I may actually retain my wide array of interests, I think I’ll commit myself seriously to a few. The topics I always…

Home Again

This should come as no secret. I pick the kids up from school and then I head home to finish up my work day at home. It’s one of the nicer things about working in a field where I can telecommute. However, since people think I’m home, that I can simply do home stuff for them. I can’t just do that. I’m working, whether…

20170905 – Five Minutes To Write

I swear, I’m going to write something down as often as possible, even if it kills me. Well, hopefully it wont come to that. But I wonder what my relentless pursuit of writing would look like if I did it constantly. Two more minutes, then I’ll have to stop and get ready to pick up my kids. These are goign to be the moments…
