I’m Not Out of the Woods, But I See a Clearing

So, a few weeks around 3AM I was bored and in need of groceries, so I stopped by the 24-hour Kroger. I like doing my grocery shopping at night (especially in the summertime; to avoid the ridiculous heat…in theory: it’s been 95º at 3am the last few weeks). Anyway, I decided to check my blood pressure at the little machine they have sitting in the pharmacy area.

Before I get too far along, let me preface this by saying that I haven’t been to the doctor in over a decade. I had health insurance all that time, but just got tired of getting dud doctors, so I just quit going altogether. It felt like I was paying for something I could do at home: weigh myself, check my blood pressure and tell me I’m fat. Duh! Cha-ching! NEXT! Continue reading

A friend posted this on Facebook and I got a kick out of it. Kinda goes along with my stance on pro-lifers: “If you’re so against abortion, here, adopt this baby.” Surprisingly though, gay marriage isn’t really a hot-button issue for me. Go figure.

I Coulda Had a V-8

A movie I’ve been waiting to see since 2009, FINALLY arrived at RedBox: Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet. The trailer looked entertaining and the synopsis had promise: A group of teenagers celebrating the anniversary of the death of a local axe murderer suddenly find themselves face to face with the realities of this haunting urban legend.

It looked better on paper. The execution (pun intended) left a lot to be desired. First the pros: Continue reading

It’s In the Cards

I recently visited one of my favorite stores, Curiosities, in Dallas. They have the best stuff and everything is arranged just so. It’s beautiful (imo). I’ll post my pictures later. In the meantime, here are a few of the cards I bought while I was there. They have random drawers filled with random decks of cards. I’m not sure from which game these particular cards are from, but I thought they were beautiful. I’d love to own the deck in its entirety. In addition, I also bought 3 other random cards that I liked. I definitely recognize the ‘Wacky Witch’ from a vintage Old Maid card game. Not sure where ‘9’ or ‘Jinx’ came from, but I loved the graphics.

Like White (Trash) On Rice

So, the other day, I went with a friend to Aldi’s. While I was in the frozen food section, looking at the frozen ravioli, I heard a noise that sounded like scratching or rain falling on a tin roof. Right about then, my friend came up behind me and was like “Oh my god, you gotta see this. You won’t believe it.” I kinda hesitated before turning around and sarcastically said ‘Oh god, don’t tell me. There’s mice in something’ (also an audible possibility, considering the background noise I’d been hearing). I turned around and saw a girl (one old enough to know better) in the rice display box, ankle-deep in bags of rice, picking up handfuls of loose rice (no doubt from busted bags) from the bottom of the display box and letting it slip through her fingers, back into the box; imagine if you or I found a treasure chest and we were grabbing fistfuls of gold coins and letting them fall through our fingers. I stood there mesmerized. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I walked past her several times, thinking surely she’d stop once she was noticed…but nope. She was oblivious. Completely enthralled with what she was doing. Needless to say, I was able to get a picture. It was just too surreal not to. The manager noticed me taking a picture and made her get out of the box and she scuttled away, happily talking to herself and twirling. We never saw her parents or whomever she came in with, if anyone. Mentally-challenged/autistic schmautistic, etc., where-the-fuck are her parents?

R.I.P. Ryan Dunn

Ryan Dunn, of Jackass fame, was killed in a car accident yesterday morning. He was 34. Second only to Johnny Knoxville, he was my favorite. Very sad.
