It's Thursday. Check your calendar. See?

I wish we had an inside joke we could share here.

I'm currently enjoying what I call reverse deafness in my left ear. I acquired a nice little hole in it after some spirited flying compliments of United Airlines. It doesn't bother me for the most part but every now and then something happens in there resulting in strange sounds. I hear everything plain as day except there's an extra track of audio now for certain pitches. It hasn't resulted in all music sounding out of tune yet but it's only a matter of time. I just hope it's all better by next Wednesday. It's annoying.

I also have an ingrown toenail.

In happier news I've been holding steady at my current weight of 174lbs. This is good for me as I usually fluctuate between 168 and 178 for no apparent reason. I eat the same things pretty much every day and I'm regular. Shut your mouth. You knew it was coming. I'd say exercise was doing me well but I haven't been as diligent as my wife has been. I haven't touched the treadmill since last Saturday and I'm feeling a little sluggish because of it.

I feel a personal renaissance coming on so I might write some music in the near future. I think it's because I haven't listened to very much music lately with the exception of the crappy songs I post to Facebook every day. I think I still have about 50ish songs to do until I can quit. I promised myself I'd do one song every day for one year without repeating. I've been doing well on the former but the latter was tarnished when I discovered that I did Madonna's "Holiday" twice. I posted an extra song to make up for it but I still hate myself.

Fun fact: I only get a new calendar every other year which means the entirety of 2013 will feature December of 2012.

Have a nice day.

Thanks a lot, asshole

The majority of the obstacles we face on a day to day basis are in place because of assholes. Instead of punishing douchebaggery we instead try to circumvent it by imposing limits and such. There will always be people that destroy public restrooms, throw beer bottles, or get shit faced wherever alcohol is served. Because of them we have to pay 50 cents to take a dump and drink beer from a plastic bottle at the baseball stadium. Do you know why we have to take off our shoes while going through airport security? It's because some asshole tried to blow up his fucking shoes on a plane.

What I find amazing is that assholes are getting younger and younger. I'd say more than 50% of children's toys require batteries now. Why? Because those little assholes lack the imagination and verbal chutzpah to come up with their own sounds. When I was four, a rocket ship went *VWOOOOOSH* because I made that sound with my mouth. This trend goes all the way up to the things adults use. It has to be expensive and it has to do everything for us because we're too lazy or stupid to do it on our own. Does that make us assholes? No, but bitching about it when it suddenly doesn't work certainly does.

I used to think that I was an asshole for having strong opinions but the more I look at it the more I see that I'm not really an asshole. The people that are bothered by people like me are the assholes. It's okay for them to be assholes but I'm still going to complain about the high costs of shopping retail due to assholes stealing stuff. I'm still going to complain about the state of the economy because of the assholes at both ends of the dollar.

30 Day Challenge - Day 28

Day 28 – In this past month, what have you learned?

I learned that I don't learn much over the course of a month.

30 Day Challenge - Day 27

Day 27 – What kind of person attracts you?

I'd be lazy and say my wife attracts me but I'm not lazy like some people I know. I like redheads perhaps because I'm bored with coifs of a different hue. No, it's because redheads are awesome. That's pretty much it in the appearances department. I'm not overly superficial so looks aren't really important. Traditionally attractive ladies don't really get my attention. If anything I see the effort that goes into their appearance which isn't a good thing. It only makes their imperfections more apparent. If I'm watching a movie I'll usually find myself checking out the quirky supporting lady instead of Kathrine Heigl but that could simply be because I hate her.

I'm attracted to personality above all else. Sense of humor is a big one since generally, people are more attractive when they smile. I like spontaneity and I mean actual spontaneity. Not the contrived, "Look at me, I'm being spontaneous!" kind of spontaneity. More along the lines of making up a song about me grinding coffee beans while I grind coffee beans. I find that many people plan on being spontaneous and that's just sad.

Most people say they're attracted to people that like the same things they like. While that's mostly true I've had girlfriends that pretended to like what I liked in order to relate to me. Honesty tends to be more apparent in the dislike of things. My wife and I both dislike the same stuff which is more sincere since people tend not to fake disdain.

I'm lazy so it's nice to have somebody else that's lazy with me. I'd choose a movie at home over a movie in the theater though I like the occasional outing every now and then.

I like long legs and a good butt as well.

30 Day Challenge - Day 26

Day 26 – A photo of somewhere you want to go.

Jill pretty much listed most of the places I want to go.

I'd like to add Cardiff (and the rest of Great Britain) to the list even if only to see the Doctor Who Exhibition. I'm a tremendous nerd.

I'd also like to visit Japan.

30 Day Challenge - Day 24

Day 24 – A photo of something that means a lot to you.

I'm not a sentimental person so I don't really have a thing that means a lot to me except my wedding ring which is very boring in photographs. Here are two individuals that mean a lot to me.

30 Day Challenge - Day 23

Day 23 – Fifteen facts about you.

1. I can play most musical instruments except those from the brass family. 99% of them have been self taught.
2. I've been to Disneyland over 1000 times.
3. I attempted to be an actor when I was younger. Guess how that worked out.
4. Most of my blood relatives live in Southern California.
5. I have an incredible selective memory. I can recall an amazing amount of facts but I frequently forget things my wife has told me and where I left my wallet.
6. I have the vernacular of somebody born and raised in the 1940's.
7. I can identify just about every automobile ever made.
8. I'm been continually employed since January of 1999 but I've worked for five different companies thanks to mergers and acquisitions.
9. I love really, cold weather.
10. I'll eat anything regarded as food in western culture (and a great many eastern examples) except olives and squash.
11. I've been doing my own laundry since I was nine.
12. I collected jackets when I lived in California. I rarely got to wear them. I'm too big for them now but I still have them.
13. If I don't stay busy I fall asleep.
14. I rarely, if ever, exceed the posted speed limit.
15. I love technology but I don't feel the need to have the latest and greatest stuff.

30 Day Challenge - Day 22

Day 22 – A letter to someone who has hurt you recently.

I don't let people hurt me so I'll write a letter to somebody that's annoyed me.

Dear early morning dog walker,
I shouldn't have to avoid dog shit on my own front lawn. You're lucky I didn't catch your scurvy ass dragging your squatting dog across my yard. If I ever find you I'm going to take a giant shit in YOUR yard.


30 Day Challenge - Day 21

Day 21 – A photo of something that makes you happy.

I haven't played live in several years but the memory of performing still makes me happy.

I was going to post a photo of my wife but that's a given.

30 Day Challenge - Day 20

Day 20 – The meaning behind your blog name.

It's a blog that I make.

30 Day Challenge - Day 19

Day 19 – Your reflection in the mirror

I'm way too lazy to snap a photo of myself so I'll just describe what I look like right now. I'm wearing a white t-shirt and I have hat hair because I was wearing a hat earlier. I haven't shaved in 24 hours so Jill probably won't want to kiss me. My glasses need to be cleaned as well. Did I mention that I'm still incredibly good looking?

30 Day Challenge - Day 18

Day 18 – Five things people do that irritate me.

Just five things? I'm hyper-vigilant and everything I notice annoys me.

30 Day Challenge - Day 17

Day 17 – Hopes for the future.

I'm pretty simple. I'd like a kid or two and for my neighbors to sell their house to quiet people that like a beautiful yard.

30 Day Challenge - Day 16

Day 16 – Your view on homosexuality.

I have no problem with it. I have a problem with people that have a problem with it.
