Napoleon Dynamite the Cartoon


The wife and I have been watching Napoleon Dynamite, the cartoon. I think it’s great! Best cartoon since Beavis and Butthead.
I guess it wasn’t too successful, apparently there’s only one season, 6 episodes.

A word on the movie, Napoleon Dynamite, it was so bad that it went all the way around the scale to being good again. I can’t describe in any other way why that movie was so successful. I was surprised how much I liked it… Soooo dumb!

The cartoon version is just plain excellent. Makes me laugh every episode.

Definitely check it out.

Hump Day

Yesterday was a pretty nice day. It was sunny, mostly, even though there were lots of clouds. It didn’t rain all day, except once, when I went to the beach for lunch. I fled the beach, with everybody else, and it was not raining too hard, so I put on my raincoat and skipped the rain pants. I was soaked from the waist down when I got back to work, then it got sunny again.

I’m glad it’s Wednesday. Monday it seemed like this was going to be a long week. I want to go diving this weekend. With my rebreather. I haven’t dived it in a long time. Started overhauling it last night. Here’s a 2005 picture of my rebreather. It has newer electronics now.


Have a good humpday!

Cloudy Monday


It was a nice, quiet weekend. It rained a lot. We needed the rain. All last week, the weather report said “rain! today!” and it was sunny and no rain. It will probably be sunny today, even though the weather says more rain.

We watched a lot of movies. I installed a range hood over the stove. Took naps.

That was it. No news is good news!

Have a good week!

World Famous Insomniac


I can’t sleep. I went to bed at 10 and woke up at midnight.
Here’s what I’ve been laying awake thinking about:

1) Work, something I can’t really post on the internet fills me with anger and resentment whenever I think about it.
2) When George Bush JR got elected, my retirement funds dropped 70%, they still have not reached the same level as before George JR got elected. I will never be able to retire and will have to work till the day I die. It dropped 70% after Bush and before 9/11. Do not be confused.
3) I didn’t get invited to my friends going away party. maybe he never liked me. Maybe I’m an asshole.

Doesn’t sound like much, but that’s it. All night. Especially the work thing and my retirement funds.

Mixing It Up

I’m mixing it up a little today,  I’m posting my post before my shower and coffee.

Last night we went to the C.A.R.E. Trivia Night. We tied for third place and lost the tiebreaker. We’ve stayed out late almost every night this week. It was hard to get up this morning.

Not much to say today.  Yesterday was a pretty good day, today should be good too.


We still haven’t had any rain. I drove the car every day and could’ve taken the bike. Today hopefully it will rain for sure. we need rain.

I’ve got to get going. Shower.  Shave. Get ready to go!

Have a good-un!

Woweee Wednesday

Hump day.
My attitude is poor. I listen to the news, and  hear about the widening gap between rich and poor and I feel like I’m coming out on the poorer side. I know in my head, that it’s all my attitude, but that knowledge doesn’t help the way I feel.


At the same time, I feel like my Wife is on the rich side, ’cause it seems like she’s got it all together.

Like I said, I know it’s all attitude, and my attitude sucks today.

I’ve never known what I wanted to be when I grew up. I still don’t. I’m in my current field because of a stupid Heathkit stereo I built with my Dad. When I joined the Navy, I picked Electronics Technician because I didn’t know what I wanted to do and thought “This’ll be just like putting together that Heathkit stereo.” Now, almost 40 years later, I’m still doing the same thing, and not, I don’t think, making enough money at it.

All I want to do is go to the beach and go diving. I could be a scuba instructor, but that pays less than half what I make now, and I can’t afford that. Been that way for years.

Once, a long time ago, I was seeing a shrink about something, (can’t remember what) and she said she had never met anyone who didn’t listen to their inner voice as much as I didn’t listen to mine. I don’t HAVE an inner voice!

I know that this is just how I feel today, and tomorrow I’ll feel good again. Like I said.

It’s just attitude.
