Brought to you by the letters IQ: I Quit

This blog community is ridiculous. Perhaps I should wave my magic wand at it or something. Yes, that’s a Harry Potter book reference. Har-de-har-har. Why the heck should I do this blog thing? I entertain the heck out of people (well, in my mind I do). Okay, so I get a little feedback. But, is that productive, or help keep me going financially? Yeah, sure it does. Excuse me a moment while I clear my pockets of all this money earned from this little blog. So, I guess I’ve to quit. Quit blogging…quit talking…quit living. Get ready to party, people. My quitting has been what you’ve always dreamed, eh. I’ll never be like many of my popular blog friends. They’re all interesting, but I’m just whom I am. I’m a kid at heart, but not much of a writer. Okay then. Shall we end it all with a little poem? (Inside) And, then…the goodbye.

Exercising my poetic license again

I had no real plans to blog today, and I’m not sure why I am, other than I’ve felt compelled. Then again, is there other reason that one blogs? Hmm. Anyway, Robin at the Pensieve called us out by email to write again.  However, when I read the task, a bit of nausea overtook me as it appeared a daunting task. She asked:

I want you to write about something you love.  The catch?  Instead of writing an expected love sonnet (i.e., about your spouse or babies or faith) I thought it’d be fun to write about a quirky-kind-of-love, paying tribute to something that could be characterized as your “precious”

I’ve to admit, that makes me smirk, or maybe it’s just imagining a certain Lord of the Rings character again. Creepy and silly at the same time, it is.  Anyway… Here we go.

I am once again, exercising my license to write:
Want this button?

*waits while the cat coughs up a hairball* Okay, all done.

My Buddy – My Blog

My blog is all I have to show
That’s plain to see
I wrap it with a big red bow
As a gift for you from me

I don’t know why I’m here sometimes
As seen throughout this blog
But, still I pursue with these rhymes
Once started, it’s like falling off a log

Where will this end, I shudder to think
Oh crap, my thought bubble’s been thrown down the sink!
Into the drain I dive, my thoughts I must get
But, suddenly, I remember, I care narry a wit.

(Oh well, happy valentine’s day, anyway.)

Okay, perhaps a blog isn’t quirky enough or whatever, but remember there are no rules. Neener-Neener. *sticks tongue out and tosses raspberries*. Though, I do love it much like my own child. Well, that is when I’ve nothing better to do. (ha-ha)
If you wish to see more quirky love poetry, do drop by Robin’s place. And, of course, you’re welcome to leave a comment on mine here, too.
I’ve to go now. Happy Valentine’s Day (or as one of my blog friends says, Happy VD day!).

Celebrating Chinese New Year in LOLCats style

It’s the beginning of a new year on the Chinese calendar, and I finally figured out a good way to celebrate, thanks to the LOL Cats!

Resolving to have a Happy New Year

I’m not a person that really makes official “New Year’s Resolutions”, however I’ve had fun with them in the past. What can one really vow to accomplish but to “do better in _____”[fill-in-the-blank with whatever task one wants to accomplish at the moment]?  In that regard, Rex Barker of has once again given out some great resolutions that go along with my kind of thinking (scary that it may be at times). Feel free to pull up a chair with me as I go through them.

Alternative Affirmations for the New Year…

1. As I let go of my feelings of guilt, I am in touch with my inner sociopath. (Because whom doesn’t  love my demonic side of life – muhahaha!)

2. I have the power to channel my imagination into ever-soaring levels of suspicion and paranoia.  (for it makes for more interesting stories to share)

3. I assume full responsibility for my actions, except the ones that are someone else’s fault. (why the heck would I want that extra burden? I’ve enough of my own, thank-you-very-much. *sarcastic grin*)

4. In some cultures what I do would be considered normal. (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. *sticks out tongue*)

5. My intuition nearly makes up for my lack of wisdom and judgment. (actually, it’s quite frightening at times, but we won’t go there right now.)

6. I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper, and complain. (for that’s why I have a blog, right? LOL)

7. When someone hurts me, I know that forgiveness is cheaper than a lawsuit, but not nearly as rewarding. ($$$$=pretty-green-stuff Money may be the root of all evil, but it sure helps out sometimes to better us all.)

8. I am at one with my duality. (Because it makes me twice as much fun…ha-ha!)

9. Blessed are the flexible, for they can tie themselves in knots. (Ever do a pretzel with a broomstick?)

10. I will strive to live each day as if it were my 50th birthday. (or 5th birthday depending on how flexible I’m feeling that day. LOL)

11. I honor and express all facets of my being, regardless of state and local laws.

12. Today I will gladly share my experience and advice, for there are no sweeter words than “I told you so!” 😉

13. A scapegoat is almost as good as a solution. (hmm…solutions…reminds me of Chemistry…ah, I like those thoughts, especially of Organic Chemistry.)

14. Just for today, I will not sit in my living room all day in my underwear. Instead, I will move my computer into the bedroom. (That’s why laptops come in really handy.)

15. I will no longer waste my time reliving the past; I will spend it worrying about the future? (Amen.)

16. The complete lack of evidence is the surest proof that the conspiracy is working. (I don’t know why, but George Michael’s “Faith” just popped in my head…oh, my.)

17. Before I criticize a man, I walk a mile in his shoes. That way, if he gets angry, he’s a mile away and barefoot.

Whew! Resolutions are done for the moment. Happy New Year to you all!
See you next year! 😉

A look back…Watch where you step

Check it out..I survived Christmas! LOL Actually, it wasn’t too bad…high points were the usual family encounters (including a surprise visit from my uncle), and the company that laid me off calling me back and telling me they want me back again. (Yeah, I’m back in the proverbial “rat race” again… *gasp*). It made up for lack of tangible gifts, and I’ve already had offers to come over and play with others’ new tech toys (Thanks to both Min and Jim!).

Anyway, it’s that time of year to look back on the past year. Even on this blog, it’s been a wild roller coaster ride for me (you can check out a random post to verify this claim). Thanks to fellow geek guys at Plaid Stallions, I’ve been drawn back into the days of my days when I was a kid, not just a kid at heart. And, it all began with this picture:
(Image by – click image to see a larger copy)
Wow! How I loved that plastic record player, and probably drove my mother and all others nearby batty playing it all the time. I’m not sure when exactly I received my first Little People set, but they were well played with throughout my youth by me and my friends, and have been forever endeared within my heart. I recall the names I gave my own “Little People”, remember ringing the school bell, bringing them to their own school, and so much more. Although the people have changed (in size mainly), the feelings they invoke are still there, and make visiting the real Fisher Price Little People site extra special, though perhaps more for my generation because of the original toys. I could definitely see my children (etc.) playing with these toys again. Even with the new “bells and whistles”, they feed the imagination to the nth degree. 😀
Not to be confused with the Fisher-Price toys, but equally cool, is seeing the Little People blog, which takes a little person all over London, England. What very cool sights!
If anyone else has a sight (or other comment), do leave it for us all to enjoy. Until later, folks, I’ve to go figure out where my signature code went now, as inserting things manually really sucks.
