Because I love fine liner felt pens and any color I want…
Taken in Lauderdale County, Mississippi on June 26, 2018
Tomorrow is Monday. Usually my favorite day of the week, this one happens to be slated for a full day of chores. (WTF Monday? You coulda warned me.. 😒)
It has come to my attention that we’ve less than a full pack of pull-ups left here in the house, and I don’t have a clue where to buy them.. They were being delivered once a month by some place out in Pearl but they stopped for no reason sometime earlier last year. When I called (and I’ve called like six times – seriously) I’m told we need an updated prescription and that they’ll fax a request over to her doctor. Well after waiting a few months and getting nothing i went to the pediatrician and asked her what to do. So she finds the website and prints out the forms and then sits down with me and fills them out. I can only assume she faxed them in as I have yet to hear back about anything.
Its SO frustrating. If I were a toddler I might throw a tantrum. Hell, I might throw onevanyway..
It’s only been about five hours since I stood laughing in the kitchen with my thirteen year old daughter. She’d asked me if I’d voted and I responded with some snarky comment about while I know it’s time we break things off with Obama, I thought our country as a whole would be a good bit better off to take a year or two and decide what it is we really want before leaping blindly into another bad relationship.. She rolled her eyes and smiled but it took her a couple of seconds to decide if I was being serious or not.
I was, and she knew it. Even at thirteen she saw it lying there in a pool of sarcasm. The tiny seed of truth that I’d just planted already had roots.
I gave her a minute to think and then winked at her and said “never forget that politics, for the most part, is just a bunch of smoke and mirrors. We just elected Donald freaking Trump as our next president.. Tomorrow half the country will wake up with second thoughts..”
Good night people. I hope it was worth it.
(Not to say that voting for Hillary would have turned out any better.. Although I do find the idea of seating her behind the same desk that Miss Lewinsky once sat under somewhat amusing.. 🗽

Dear Sir, (For Privacy)
To answer your questions, please let me say first, that in my opinion, the integration of the Smart Watch is going to be the next logical step in portable gaming. With the mastering and ease of virtual storage, whether the customer prefers using the Apple, Google or Microsoft operating systems, there should be an app for that. Simply put, the idea goes something like this – By enhancing the remote control sensors that already come standard on every television in the world, we could potentially give an added NUI feature to the increasingly popular Smart TV. To pair this with data and movement tracking programs currently being used by virtually all cellphones and video game consoles on the market today would open up an incredible number of opportunities to grow the convenience and portability our every day gamer typically looks for.
In comparison with the Xbox Kinect and the Nintendo Wii, instead of holding a wand or controller, which would then interact with the console through a sensor bar, the watch IS the controller, sensing and interacting directly to a compatible application downloaded on a Smart TV. Using the Cloud, user preferences, account information, achievements and saved games would be accessible with a simple voice or remote command. There would potentially no longer be a need for hard drives or controllers or fragile (and expensive) gaming CDs, thereby creating an effortless gaming experience with the physicality of a kinect-style console and the access of a cellphone.
I am open to any comments or suggestions you may have and look forward to hearing your thoughts on this one.
I appreciate your time,
Having vices is like having little quirks, if you ask me. Okay, so maybe not the meth-head, serial killer, nazi-kind of vices, but the simple ones.. Small-ish and harmless (more often than not) like a personality trait or a personal preference…
My vices live down deep inside the center of my being with near my unfulfilled dreams and the memories I hold closest to my heart.
A cup of coffee and a cigarettes, some candy now and then.. Turning my phone on silent just because.. Watching my girls while they’re asleep to name a few..These are the things that keep me grounded when my days are long, the small addictions that I crave within my soul.. Things I’d go batshit if I had to go without for very long..
My guilty pleasures.
My shot of happiness..
