5, Leaves

There are lots of leaves in my front yard, but I don't have any trees.  All the leaves are from my neighbor's trees next door or across the street. So shouldn't they have to rake them up? Seems so. Also, when you're about to start a road trip, does anyone else start to sing " On the Road Again" by Willie Nelson?  I do; my sister does she says. I think that's funny.

This is post #5!  Not anywhere near a thousand words a day, but I have made it to #5!  This is a  very exciting thing for me.

Gas station pizza is underrated

If I had to list the world's best kept secrets in food, I would list naan (bread, Indian, delicious). the spinich and artichoke tip at Upland Brewery in Bloomington, Indiana.  Aunt Sandy's sweet potato casserole.
And gas station pizza.
From anywhere, really.  Truck stop pizza is the best.  One gigantic greasy slice, $2.99.  It's the lunch, or breakfast, or second lunch (or third) of champions.  I'm a fan.

Also on the list: movie theatre popcorn.  baseball park bratwursts.  deep fried twinkies.

From this post I sound like a pig. Well...maybe.  I'm just a fan o' food.

It's a new day

The blog is getting another post! And on a day other than the day I started the blog! Which means I actually RETURNED to the blog!  How bout that?

Time flies when you're crazy busy with no time and you fall behind in 100 things and you just keep thinking "dang, I am really far behind in alot of things". 

What things are you really behind in?  Are you consistently behind in the same area over and over?  Why do you think that is?

Ruminations on Life

- You can turn a cucumber into a pickle, but you cannot turn a pickle back into a cucumber.

- The best way to fix a problem is to not have it.

- (Driving across Mobile Bay) "That's a lot of water." "It is. And that's just the top of it. There's water all underneath there too."

- What are you trying to accomplish?

- Answer the question.

- An old fella told Papaw he had 13 years of experience. Papaw said nah, he just had one year of experience 13 times.

- Food is my friend.

- There's attitude, ability, and experience. Experience is the least important. Attitude is the most important, but without the ability, attitude won't matter.

- There are urgent things and there are important things. It is important to do the important things and not always the urgent things. Sometimes the most important things are the least urgent things.

- People have to trust what you say, that you'll give them the right answer. That way, when you need the benefit of the doubt, people will give it to you.

Numero Uno

Why the junk cant I thinkof anything t say? I have writers block out the wazoo.  I am trying to type without looking at my hands, it is very hard. I am also trying to minimize the use of the backspave button (shoot@) but I am using it sometimes. Otherwise this thing would be completely illegible.

Ao I am starting small.  Jim Carrey carried around with him a million dollar check as motivation to make it big someday.  Sheldon from Big Bang Theory celebrated (in a way) when he hit 100 Twitter followers. If I hit 10 people who have seen this I’m going to host a circus.  Big time celebration.  With fleas and everything (catch the circus reference…no… I move on)..

The real purpse of this blog for thetime being (maybe forever) is to cure this writer’s block I have. Chris G. (not even trying to typ[e his last name without looking) talks in one of his blog posts (link…here: about writing, just writing for writing’s sake, and how that invariably makes youa better writer.  Makes sense to me, so I’ll give it a shot. He says a thousand words a day.  Well that’s fanstastic, but there “ain’t no way” that’s happening here.  That’s a lot of words!  I don’t know if I even think that much, much less be able to write it all down. So no words goals here, for now at least.  I’m starting with legibility and typing speed.
(The blog link? Yeah, cut and pasted that one :)  )
