Oh I wrote a book

Random Life

While in Chicago I had a run in with my bank due to a website triple charging me. I was broke and although I could have borrowed money from many different people. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. What is a boy to do....

Is it bad that I referenced my Facebook year in review for this article?  I find it odd how much I rely on this one site for so much information, communication, and pleasure.  It isn't since the old days that this was true. I guess I kinda dated myself using that reference.  

My mom always had a saying, “You have to be able to look yourself in the mirror.” This saying was the first thing that came to mind after hearing Kage Alan’s tale of the big box store.  I will have to say that the mail person is horrid here and I have found myself frequently walking mail around to the houses that the letter/package/check/creditcard/postcard and various other sundries (I swear someone’s sex today has come to the house in an unmarked box.) to the correct home.  That being said, I am not sure that I would have gone through as much trouble as Mr. Alan did during with one of the big box stores during the holiday. For one I tend to stay as far away from them as possible. Secondly, I don’t know if I would have thought about black Friday special pricing. 


In the end, it is about doing unto others as you would have done to you.  I believe we are all connected (I can tell you most of the images of space looks like brain imaging) and no matter what you do, it comes back to you. 

With the completion of “Cyber Monday” yesterday I believe it is time to talk about consumerism.  Our story begins with our friend, Wal-Mart who in 2011 decided to open at 10PM on Thanksgiving to get a jump on the “Black Friday” rush. Other retailers decided to open at midnight that year. This year it was pretty much acknowledged that retailers would be open on Thanksgiving for pretty much normal hours.   I like money. I like making money. I just have issues when making money is the most important thing in your life.

The leaves are falling down and the air is getting crisp.  I can smell the pumpkin spice garbage when I walk the dog. It must be getting close to Halloween.  I have friends that love this holiday, I can take it or leave it.  I like the day after when the candy goes on sale. 

Just in time for Halloween, we are going to talk about horror movies!  Now, I am not a big movie buff.  I can barely remember which movies I have seen.  I blame it on my brain surgery, but it is probably just the lack of caring.  There are a few movies that I absolutely love and would watch again and again and just so happens, they fall under this category!
