"I wasn’t lucky enough to have ever found what I wanted to do. Don’t get me wrong— I did nicely. But I never found my passion."
Probably me in 25 years or so. Like her, I’m not all that upset about it. I’m doing nicely.
and who knows… 25 years is a long time.
The Truth is the only thing you’ll ever run into that has no agenda.
My heart is melting into a million little pieces right now. See the full video of this adorable hug here.
Later, on their way home from the petting zoo, Bobby and his mom stopped for a bucket of extra crispy.
People who say they don’t care what people think are usually desperate to have people think they don’t care what people think.

The Tumblrs doth “give no f*cks” too much, methinks. -r
But it’s not enough to buy a mansion and a yacht.
Each man believes only his experience.
A New Jersey atheist sued the state after her application for a vanity plate reading “8THEIST” was denied. The suit, filed Thursday by Shannon Morgan, of Leesburg, claims her online application was rejected on the grounds “that the message ‘may carry connotations offensive to good taste and decency.’”
My home state is getting in the news too much lately for douchebaggery, even by its usual low standards. Fair is fair. If you can have a plate that says BAPTIST, you should be able to have one that says 8THEIST.
'Earth cousin' discovery a milestone in search for alien life
The exoplanet Kepler-186f indicates that life could be sustainable around M dwarf stars, despite their dimness.
Not to sound all Mulder-y, but the truth is out there. Mind you, I’m no UFO conspiracist; I don’t believe aliens are currently traveling across the light years just to give us proctology exams.
But given the sound scientific evidence of the increasing likelihood that the universe is filled with a great many Earth-like planets, I think it would be both naive and egotistical to think Earth is the only world with ‘clever’ life. (I withhold judgement about calling us ‘intelligent’. Time will tell on that matter, we’ve got more evolving to do, first.)
Hopefully, it we ever do meet alien life, we’ll make a better show of it than we have done in the past when one human civilization has bumped into another, previously unknown, human civilization. Our track record is not good in that regard.
But, like rooting for the home team that almost always losses, I still have faith in you, humanity! Next season we’ll finally get our act together, for sure. Just wait and see.
Thoughts on Diet & Exercise
As some people may have noticed by my postings, I am trying to lose some weight. I am 6 foot and (almost) 1 inch tall and, when I started two weeks ago, I weighed nearly 245 lbs. Depending on what chart you consult, I am at the very least overweight, but usually more in the obese range. My last weigh in today clocked in at around 236, so I am trending downwards.
I don’t blame anyone else for my being fat, I did it all by myself. I and I alone control what and how much goes in my pie hole, and how much I move my fat ass. I don’t blame McDonalds, or my parents, or the cruel kids in grade school, or my genes, or all the goodies that are always floating around the office… It’s me, all me. I made myself fat and I can make myself un-fat, too.
That said, here are some thoughts and tips that have, so far at least, worked for me…
I hate it when I leave potatoes in the dark too long. Oh well, could be worse. Imagine if it happened with steak.
I’m starting to see more ads on my dash than pictures of cats.
This is a troubling development.
