Sleep is getting in my way


As long as I can remember, I can’t sleep. But these last few days I’ve been sleeping really good. So good I don’t want to get up, my eyes feel wonderfully stuck-shut and I just want to stay in bed. It is unheard of.

It is also interfering with my schedule. Usually, I post blog posts in the mornings before the Wife wakes up. Lately she’s been getting up before me.

I’m not complaining, bu I have to make adjustments in my schedule….

Probably jinx myself by this post, and start being a world famous insomniac again.

Quite The Storm

Although Isaac is gone from here, last night we had heavy wind and rain all night. Ditto the dawg was freaking out all night and I had to tie him to the closet door. It seems to comfort him. Plus he’s not keeping us awake all night. I woke up every hour, thinking how good I was sleeping. This morning all the wind is gone, and it is hot, still and cloudy. I turned the AC on, first time in a couple months.

I have a Kindle Fire, and I’m in the process of “rooting” it. That’s where you remove the restrictions that Amazon has. I think I got it done but am missing something. There’s two OS’s on it now, the Kindle OS and another, something like the Android version of DOS or Linux that I haven’t figured out yet. I think I need to add a third OS, like Android 4… I get to select when it boots up.

Sorry I haven’t been commenting on blogs lately. I’ve been studying for a job interview, and have had a little work as well.

Until next time.

American Football


American Football Preseason started a couple weeks ago. I think next week is the last week of the preseason and then regular season starts, taking us all the way to 2013!

I was thinking back to when I was a kid, I didn’t even know how to play football. I signed up for High School football, because I figured I would learn the rules. But everyone at High School football already knew the rules, and the coaches never explained the obvious. I spent the season trying to hide the fact that I didn’t know what I was doing. What a fucked up little kid I was. I have to assume I still am, but I know almost all the rules of football now..

What Happened to Thursday?

If yesterday was Wednesday, (as you can obviously tell it was, from the title of my post yesterday), and today is Friday, what happened to Thursday? It is a mystery I am sure science will never unravel.

We try to take good care of our dogs, we really do, but as you can tell by these pics, we obviously aren’t doing a very good job. Look at Poor Poor Sheba! Just look at her. So sad, so abused. Poor poor Sheba.

The other three pics are of a tree in our back yard that we planted when we moved in here. To me this is cool because the flowers look like spaceships. This is the first year it has had flowers. The tree is named Pointsy Anna.

Have a nice weekend, I hope none of your weekend days disappear like Thursday did this week!




Good News Wednesday

I was using my computer yesterday to repair another computer. I saw an interesting thing. All the files on the hard drive had their attributes changed to ‘hidden’. It made for an interesting boot-up experience and all the files appeared to be gone, but the drives still full. I think the customer will be very happy his machine is fixed.
I am on the short list for the job I applied for at the Airports Authority, same time as business picks up. Like always. This time, I’m taking the job and making my business secondary, or shut it down completely. Having my own business has been like pushing a car with flat tires. If you push as hard as you can, you can make things move. But the second you stop pushing, everything stops. No coasting, no resting. And it requires continual effort and it is exhausting.
But my business has kept me alive and paid the bills for two years. A lot of people say that it take three for a business to take off.
I don’t care. If I get the job, my business can be backup for a steady paycheck.

The List

I can’t think of titles or topics. On my tablet, I have a list, “Blog Topics”. The idea is that when I think of an idea for a post, I can write it down on the list so I can post about it later.

I’ve never put anything on the list. Not once. Yet.

Yesterday, I remember having two good ideas for posts. The little voice said: “You better write it down!” The other voice: “Nah, I’ll NEVER forget a good idea like this!”

Today I can’t remember either of my two good unforgettable topics. I need to write them down when I think of them.

PS: Don’t spread it around that I have little voices in my head.
