Five On Friday: My Blogging Rules For Myself (Re-blogged)

This “5 on Friday” post from October deserves a re-blog. Happy Friday, everyone!

Random Ramblings; Myriad Musings

Have you ever noticed this specific blogging phenomenon known as the “my blog is better than your blog” attitude? I see it often, and it always reminds me of high school interactions or shitty co-workers. These bloggers know everything about everything, and feel the need to troll or spam other bloggers with their arrogant, know-it-all personal attacks.

Some petty little asshat recently got all butthurt over me asking it to respect the boundaries of my blog. Sorry sunshine, you have your own blog. You do your shit your way, and I’ll keep on keeping on doing my shit my way. Because, you know, this is MY blog. I’ve never told you what to write, have I? That answer would be no. So, don’t tell me what to write, m’kay? It’s pretty fucking simple, but even simplicity is far above the heads of some.

With that, here are the five rules…

Full Frontal Thursday: Taxes, Creepy Men, and North Korea

After a small break, Ms. Bee is back! In this installment she talks about the “Greatest Tax Bill Ever Sold,” breaks down the numbers of men who have engaged in sexual impropriety, and sits down to talk about North Korea with actual Koreans.

Political Pondering…

If Congressman Conyers and Senator Al Franken are required to resign due to the allegations being made against them, then why is there even going to be an election for Senate candidate Roy Moore?

I’d ask someone from Alabama, but I don’t think I’m up for their unhinged psychosis. Inbred southerners are prone to snap in the same way Dobermans and pit bulls are reputed to!

Change Is Good

I’m pleased to say that some of the seeds planted over the past couple of years have finally begun to flourish and blossom! Looking forward to 2018 with a renewed sense of accomplishment. It will be time to travel again, and I can’t wait to set wheels back on the road.

Repetition and stagnation work for some. It has never worked for me. The proof is undeniable now.

Changes will be coming to my little blog in the new year. Nothing drastic, but it is well past time to do a bit of updating, fine-tuning, and re-branding. I hope that you will join me on the new adventures which are sure to follow!

Funny Memes…Just Because! (Re-blogged)

Today is the final opportunity for me to earn some sweet in-game swag, so here is a re-blog of some funny memes from February. I hope that the random number generator gods reward my patience, diligence and determination!

First off, I just wanted to throw this out there: has anyone else seen this odd little thing? It pops up when I try to read some of the blogs that I follow, and has been occurring since November, I’d say. It only happens with a few of them; I’d say that there are around 11 blogs that I can’t read anymore, because that silly little message kept popping up. It seems to happen most often with blogs that have ads running, but that’s not the case with all of them. Anyway, that’s the reason that I have been absent from some blogs – that little ‘security certificate alert’ makes me a wee bit leery!

Now that that’s out of the way, here are a few funny memes about a few random things…just for the hell of it! Enjoy…

Colin Kaepernick Receives 2017 Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award

GOOD BLACK NEWS

Colin Kaepernick (GETTY IMAGES)

by Michael Rosenberg via si.com

“If I was walking down the highway with a quarter in my pocket and a briefcase full of truth, I’d be so happy.” – Muhammad Ali, Sports Illustrated, Feb. 19, 1968

Colin Kaepernick made his truth known when he first decided not to stand for the national anthem. He had a lot of football left to play and a lot more money to make when he made his decision. It was late August, 2016. People who were anonymous in life had become famous in death. Philando Castile. Eric Garner​. Alton Sterling. Freddie Gray. They were tragic symbols of a society that had taken a terribly wrong turn. As the anthem played ahead of the 49ers’ preseason game against the Texans, Kaepernick, San Francisco’s 28-year-old quarterback at the time, quietly took a seat on the bench.

It took two weeks for anyone from…

It Arrived!

The “Brack Flyday Bunduru” of stuff that I ordered was delivered today! Here is what arrived:

– Two Sabrent (TM) USB 3D stereo headset adaptors.

– One Logitech (R) G13 Advanced Gameboard.

– Three 2018 calendars; one for my home office, one in the main hallway, and one in the bedroom. They are always of a picturesque nature and vary from year to year.

– Assorted beauty products for my winter skin-care regimen.

The last thing that I’m waiting for is an order from Tommie Copper, as more exercise / gaming gear is needed! Should be here no later than Friday, 15 December.

The only thing I have on my “wish list” is a NordicTrack Freestride trainer. I need to get rid of my outdated elliptical, which was used when I bought it eight years ago. Time to upgrade!

A Short Monday Musing…

I couldn’t think of a good title for this post! It sort of deals with labels and how people define themselves and others by these ever-changing, subjective definitions.

These thoughts began percolating over the past week. Whenever I hear a discussion being had by others, or read dialogue in the comment sections of blogs, news articles, YouTube videos or in-game zone chat, the inevitable accusation made by one person to shut up another is this: “You’re such a politically correct, overtly sensitive SJW – get over yourself!” Merely telling someone not to be an asshole or a douchebag will have people hurling that label at you wherever you go.

It is almost as if being “PC” is the worst thing for a human being to be. It’s perfectly fine to be a racist, rapist, thief, liar, murderer, child molester, or abuser of anything and everything you can get your hands on; if you actually give a shit about how another human being is treated, people act as if you should be strung up from the highest tree by a tiki-torch-waving mob.

In the spirit of calling things what they are – you know, calling a spade a spade – I figured I’d get all that icky, gooey, PC-speak out of my system. It is hard to be completely honest if I’m always biting my tongue or walking on eggshells, so it is time to purge.

* You don’t have CPTSD from your daddy looking at you cross-eyed when you were four. You’re a mentally imbalanced, sobbing, incoherent mess who lashes out mindlessly at everyone who asks you what is wrong. The people who enable your bullshit are just as psycho as you are.

* You don’t have ADD / ADHD or whatever other alphabet soup acronym you choose to excuse your disordered behavior. You’re a scatterbrained, disorganized, unreliable flake who is unable to commit to anything unless you deem it important to or for yourself.

* You don’t have a hoarding disorder due to OCD. You are a disgusting, subhuman creature who chooses to exist in mountains of your own filth.

* You don’t have DID. You get attention by feigning helplessness and by being chronically manipulative.

* You’re not bipolar. You’re incapable of taking responsibility for your impulsive, immature actions and want a free pass for them.

Do you like me better now that I’ve posted something that isn’t oozing with what you determine to be political correctness? No ranting was involved, either.

I’m finally getting the hang of this blogging thing!

Monday Mini-Musings: Netiquette (Re-blogged)

Just a small, timely reminder of proper “Netiquette.” Teach these rules to your kids and perhaps they will retain the information into adulthood!

I doubt it, but one can only hope.

😉

Random Ramblings; Myriad Musings

Remember when these simple guidelines for internet etiquette, a.k.a. “netiquette,” were generally followed by many? They mainly applied to adults, since kids weren’t as unsupervised in cyberspace as they are now.

People don’t give a crap about these reasonable guidelines anymore, that’s for sure! C’est la vie
