ABCs of Me
A - Age: 36 B - Bed size: King C - Chore you hate: Is “All of them” acceptable? Picking only one, I guess I’d have to say dishes. And only “family dishes.” When I’m home alone for any length of time I don’t mind so much because I fucking clean up after myself. D - Don’t eat: Seafood – never liked it. E - Essential start your day item: Coffee, Internet F - Favorite board game: Trivial Pursuit G -...
Actual line from an actual e-mail I actually read...
“Thanks for taking on this sticky booger.”
God. I really miss having my own office.
And it has nothing to with any sense of self importance or anything. I’m just so fucking tired of people talking to me from the other side of the cubicle farm as though I can fucking hear them or am waiting on their every fucking word. At least give me the courtesy of saying, “Cullen?” or “Hey dishit” or something first rather than blathering on for a whole minute...

inthefade: [or: in which four nights in a row of not sleeping makes me write horrible things about the flintstones] Let’s talk about The Flintstones. Why? Because it’s the 50th anniversary of the show and I have nothing else to talk about today. I used to love the Flintstones when I was a kid. I didn’t… Judy, Betty, Josie and those hot Pussycats… they make me horny, on Saturday...
meanmrmustard: I could have sworn I asked you something. Maybe it was a reply? Anyhoo… I need some new metal to get into. Help a brother out? Agreed. If you have any suggestions for new bands - most of what I’ve heard these days has really turned me off. Guess I just like the old school too much.
Current status - Bad Religion and making dinner.
Two things awe me most, the starry sky above me and the moral law within me.– Immanuel Kant (via mitch-finch) EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEImmanuel Kant was a real pissant, who was very seldom stable …

I scored 87%. I missed two. It tells me: I don’t have enough Jewish friends. Fucking Jonathan Edwards.
I can feel my back starting to go out. There is an insurmountable amount of work that needs to be done today. These two things are not unrelated.

What Will Future Generations Condemn Us For? →
Once, pretty much everywhere, beating your wife and children was regarded as a father’s duty, homosexuality was a hanging offense, and waterboarding was approved — in fact, invented — by the Catholic Church. Looking back at such horrors, it is easy to ask: What were people thinking? I think about this very same thing often. While I’m not sure I’m on board with the author’s...
I have a very hard time staying in one place longer than 3 years (give or take). I grew up as an Air Force brat, was active-duty Army and now work as a DoD-civilian. It makes “homesteading” a very difficult prospect. We’ve kind of fallen in love with Memphis though, but still, I find myself looking off to the horizon …
Things he thinks of #3
And then there are better ones. #3 One thing my son learned about recently was the silent “E.” He loves the fact that the “E” can make other letters sound different. That’s the way his lesson presented it to him - like the “E” comes in and bosses the other letters around, changing the way they sound. So, just a few moments ago he runs in, pats me on the...
Things he thinks of #2
Of course, it can’t all be sunshine and roses. #2 The men in my family tend to have pretty bad tempers. I’ve worked hard to get a grip on mine, but I’m still not the calmest of men. My son and my nephew have it the hardest though. They just can’t seem to find an appropriate outlet for that anger. Or, perhaps, it just boils up too fast for them to walk away - I don’t...
Things he thinks of #1
My son is five and is amazingly funny. Unfortunately, a good many of the things he has said have been forgotten. So, in the vein of “Shit My Dad Says,” I’m gonna start recording all of them I can. #1 We’ve been trying to get my son into speech therapy for some time. He has made tremendous improvement over the past two years, but he still needs some help. Going through...
All day today.
