I didn't have a system. I wasn't friends with anyone who had a system. Some of my cousins had systems, but when I visited, we spent more time playing outside than in front of the TV. So, I got nothing. I haven't played enough to get good enough to enjoy a game. I have tried, but I just don't enjoy them.

Omaha has one of those "Knife, sword, anime, and incense" stores in one of the malls. You know the place: full of wolf statues and all the glittery, sparkly knives you could want. And the sales-dude is so happy to talk about his knives as if they're the best, most awesome weapons on the planet!

I love going into those stores. Not that I...

Everywhere else seems to be politics and arguing and drama and angry crap. But I've set my feed up so all I get are books, coffee, tea, books, mountains, dogs, old trucks, books, books, and an occasional naked lady. It's like a de-stressing machine in my pocket! If I'm having a rough day, I can just go through and look at all...

You should always read naked, just in case there are good parts.

No, that's a hobo and a rabbit. But they're making a hobbit.

It's been one hell of a week. I don't know if this was supposed to be my "Hell Week" at work or if it was just poor planning. If I was there for less than 10 hours, it was a "short" day. And the stress of it was making sleep a stranger. So, last night, I decided to give Melatonin a try, see...

@amberetta whatever the dose was. It was in a little bottle that was slightly larger than an energy shot bottle and was called "sleep water".
amberetta:
Lol that's why. My kids take the actual pills. My oldest son takes almost 10mg a night to fall asleep. The pills are better than other forms of melatonin. I used to take 15mg.

Fuck yeah, dude. FUCK YEAH. You don't owe explanations to ANYONE. 

As odd a time as it was, I had a really good day. This morning, I got to have coffee with a dear old friend of mine. She and her hubby had me stay at their house for 4 years to housesit. They're sort of like a second set of parents, who always are so happy to see me. We talked for about 3...

Ok.

So. We got played. Unfortunately, it's happened before, and I'm sure it will happen again. I'll tell you about Vegas sometime.

Everyone is pissed, me included. I may not open myself up as much or bond so close, but it still makes me mad when people I respect are attacked, hurt, or injured. So, yes, I'm pissed.

But, let's keep...

Damn. What did I miss? Lol 

Ahh, the Bucket List; made famous by the movie The Bucket List, in which some old dudes make a list of things they want to do before they die (i.e. kick the bucket). Ever since, people have been making lists of the things they want to do before they die. So, ok, here's mine.

1: Write a book that lets me live as...
