Deal Reached for Sacramento Kings to move to Seattle – Now, I’m not a Basketball fan at all, but this is apparently big news for Seattle.
I think the gag reels are the best part of Supernatural. I couldn’t stop laughing through this one.
Hormel buys Skippy peanut butter – Does this mean there could potentially be a peanut butter flavored Spam? Hmm…
And just like that, it’s 2013. How about that. So do any of you remember 2012? It went by so fast, I’m not even sure what to think. But I do have to say that a lot of things happened in 2012. Some things are good, but there are a lot of bad things too.
I for one, am glad it’s over. I just want the new year to be exactly that. A NEW start. I’m ready for change, and change needs to happen soon.
I’d like to start the new year with a clean slate though. By that, I mean debt free. I want to be debt free so I can go back into debt again. LOL. I want to buy a house for us, and to do that, I gotta pay off all my stupid debt I have. I am lucky that I own my car at least. So if there’s ever a New Year’s Resolution, it’s definitely the same as always, plus to become debt free.
Did you make any resolutions? What are they? I always want to be a better person than I was last year and to help people more than I did last year.
I remember when this commercial came out a few years back (2009 to be exact if you believe the video information), and we thought it was pretty cheesy then too. They are again running this video for Christmas this year and it’s still cheesy. I really have to ask myself if the brother would have seriously waited to get coffee until he got home. Wouldn’t he have gotten some at one of the many Starbucks on the way home? Folger’s isn’t that good. You know he definitely isn’t coming home to Washington state.
You have to wonder why are people acting so stupid lately? Is it because they think they’ve got nothing to worry about since the world is supposed to end soon? Are people just being fatalistic? Didn’t they prove the Mayan end of the world stuff as nonsense?
I think people are becoming rude because we are losing all the things called human values. Since people are becoming more detached to human interaction,most people are believing we don’t have a need to be polite. No more things like saying “Excuse Me”, or “Sorry”, or even a simple plain “Hello”. What are we becoming? Am I ranting?
I think the worst thing is perhaps the rudeness of people who work in Customer Service. Seriously now. You are working in a position where you are catering to another person. This is a field where the customer is king. If you treat them badly, there can be serious consequence.
I just don’t think it’s me getting older either. People are just plain being rude. They will cut you off in the supermarket, or give you the stare, or even just look at you with a look of “why are you so offended, screw you.” I think people as a whole need to have the manners slapped into their thick skulls. Maybe even shipped off to the Island of Rudeness and they can all deal with themselves. Or all the nicer people can create a new nation and live on that island. I’d move. Right now.
I have to seriously wonder what in the world is going on. I cringe to think of the kids of the future. What cracks me up is this: Did my parents or grandparents say the same thing about us? I think humans as a whole are losing it. Epic fail if you will for those who don’t understand me in “normal” terms. Maybe the end of the world is coming after all.

I remember when I was in Japan, at Yokota High School, and the first book I really picked up to actually read was Sword of Shannara. I think my dad had bought it and I thought it looked kinda interesting. I hadn’t really read any books before this, unless it was required, and trust me, everyone went for the Cliff Notes version. If you don’t know what that is, then it really shows my age.
When I read that book, it was like a whole new world just opened up. I already like science fiction and fantasy, but not on this scale. I remember people mentioning that it was like the Lord of the Rings, and while I knew all about Tolkien, I hadn’t really read those books. So I decided to pick those up as well. And so began my fall into epic fantasy.
That was also the year I got into playing Dungeons and Dragons as well. A friend of mine had just moved to Yokota AFB and asked if I was into Role Playing and Fantasy. I don’t think my life was ever the same after that. All because I read this one book called the Sword of Shannara. Thanks Terry Brooks, you truly changed my life.
How about you? Did you have a favorite book?
