Halloween 2012

This Halloween I carved my first Jack-O-Lantern.  I’ve never done one before.  I understand my father did them before he died.  This was my first.

After that I watched Charlie Brown while roasting the seeds.  Next I watched the Simpsons Tree House of Horror and other Halloween related cartoons while eating the Tootsie Roll candy assortment I bought for myself.

If there’s a better way for a single adult guy to spend Halloween, I don’t know what it is.  Seriously.  I have no idea.

Dreamblog – Killing my wife

My wife was a real bitch.  She was drunk and crude.  I don’t remember why but we were out on our third floor balcony so I pushed her off and let her fall to the ground.  A neighbor from across the back yard came running to help her but she got up like nothing happened.

Someone else was on the balcony with me and I made the surprised remark that she was OK.  The person commented that she was in shock and will not last long.  My wife started to chase the neighbor that came to help her but after about fifty feet she fell down and her head popped off.  I was relieved.

We went inside the house and had dinner.  The table was full of people who were a little somber because of the event.  I asked if we should call the police and report the event or just ignore it.  Nobody really had an answer.

Dreamblog – Drum Major

The band was getting ready to march out to the field for the half-time show.  I was suddenly elected Drum Major.  It was my duty to organize the band and lead them in the show.  I felt I could manage to handle it but I was also supposed to march my regular spot.

As the band headed out on the field I realized that I couldn’t remember where I was supposed to be or remember anything about learning the drill.  I was going to have to wing it.  This couldn’t turn out well.

Fish Burps

You often hear people who take fish oil tablets complain about burping fish flavor.  Fish oil is noted for possibly reducing your cholesterol so it’s good for you.

I don’t mind burping fish flavor.  It reminds me of fish!

I like fish.

 

I Voted Today

I decided that I knew all I was going to about the candidates this year (which isn’t much) so I voted during lunchtime today.

The main vote, of course, was for the president.
The second most important vote was against the new tax to pay for Pre-K (daycare) for the multitude of undeserving children in San Antonio.  Nope.  I don’t support socialism.  Pre-K is for people who have money. Not for everyone.  You should be staying home with your children like my mom did.

I went through the rest of the ballot voting for the white people not caring what party they were in.  Yes.  I am racist.  Suck it!

Of course I don’t believe for a minute that my vote counts.  I’m sure it has all been pre-decided.  The whole voting process is just to make the little person think that they have a say.  I’m willing to bet that the other guy wins for president, the Pre-K tax passes and all the mexican candidates win.  Want to put some money on it?

I’ll update this post in a few weeks when the results are in…

…November 7th.

Welp,  There you go!   I called it.  I would say that I win but I lose.   Voted for Romney, Obama won.  Voted against free daycare, got it anyway.   Let the Socialism begin.

I hate this planet.  😦

 

Why I’m not afraid of the coming zombie apocalypse

There sure have been a lot of movies and TV shows about the Zombie Apocalypse lately.

I’m not afraid of this happening because it will not be like Hollywood portrays it.  As long as you don’t get infected, all you have to do is wait it out in a safe place for a while.  Eventually the zombies, will exhaust their food supply.  They are also unlikely to be intelligent enough to find water.  The body, zombified or not, cannot exist very long without water.  They will become inoperable and die.  Then I can come out of hiding and enjoy the world without the thundering masses.  Nice!

In reality, it is very unlikely that such a zombification virus will actually exist.  Killing a human and reanimating his body in such a way just can’t happen.  There is, however, the possibility that an earthwide disaster like an asteroid, EMP, solar flare or widespread nuclear war could wipe out our food supply chain turning people into virtual zombies as they scour the planet looking for food.  This kind of zombie, who is still congnicient and able to think and reason, is even more dangerous.  They won’t just stand there while you bash their head in.  They WILL fight back with deadly force.  Eventually they will become cannibals so like Hollywood zombies, they may eat your brain.

When the world’s population eventually becomes reduced down to a level that can be sustained by an agrarian society, the world will become equalized and re-industrialization will begin.  At least not from scratch because hopefully some people will retain the skills needed or can find the information they need in books.  Assuimg there are still books.

THIS could actually happen.

My Whirlpool dishwasher is useless

Some of my dishes AFTER washing in my new Whirlpool dishwasher.

I usually don’t use my new Whirlpool dishwasher because it just doesn’t work.  Last night I had a load of dishes that needed washing but I didn’t have the energy so I decided to try the dishwasher again.  This morning I opened it up to put my clean dishes into the cabinets and they looked worse than when I put them in last night.

They are covered in white scum that wasn’t there before.  I am using Cascade detergent which I read was rated the best according to Consumer Reports.  I am also using Jet-Dry in the built-in dispenser.

Not only did I use power and water attempting to wash these dishes, I had to wash them AGAIN by hand.  This machine is totally useless other than being an expensive drying rack.
