    5x Silkier

    It happened in the shower. No, I didn't fall, but I did have a realization about marketing. The label on the conditioner said: 5X  silkier hair, guaranteed. That's quite a guarantee. But then it occurred to me as I was lathering, 5 times silkier than what? I mean, if my hair...

    Skunked

    Well I know once I put this story up I am never going to hear the end of it but my sister is in the hospital and maybe it will cheer her up. As some of my friends know my sister was in a riding accident and so everyone is away and so I got volunteered for pet sitting, Lexi's dog...

    Thanks, But No Thanks

    All things have a purpose, this I know, but not all things have a purpose for all people. For example, I don’t have any use for a stapler, ever. I prefer paper clips. And just so you know this has nothing to do with the time I stapled my finger trying to retrieve a bent and...

    Who Knew Ignoring Could Be So Time-Consuming?

    I hate to be late. It's not like a little pet peeve--I don't do anything in a small way; it is a full-blown obsession. I will get up an hour early, leave time for non-existent traffic and construction detours. I will lay out my clothes and pack my lunch the night before. I will...

    Gilligan And Nihilism

    Nihilism suggests that life is without meaning or purpose. Gilligan suggests that life does have meaning and purpose but that we should not take it all that seriously. I sometimes like to take a break from reality and the constant search for meaning, by suspending belief for a...

    This Is Not The Right Kind...

    I guess everyone has a high-maintenance aspect to their personality. Everyone has something that they are particular about if they are willing to admit it. I have known women who claim to be easy going, and I have believed them, right up until the point that I arrived at their...

    So ... Control ...

    one might argue we're not that valuable. we're only worth as much as the things we change around us. and in the grand scheme of things our lives mean nothing. we're so inconceivably insignificant that if you we're to perform a mental exercise where you would try to imagine...

    Ambidextrousity

    Today while in the shower I started to wonder what would happen if I was suddenly incapacitated, you know, like from a massive stroke, or a lighting strike or an IED explosion. Borderline hypochondriacs tend to think of  things like this and so this type of musing is not unusual...

    The Sponge Hierarchy

    Well, I am not ashamed to tell you that I took a lot  of heat for this when I was married and my older daughter still lived with me. Some people just cannot understand the way things are, and it is sad. I tried to explain countless times, with  varying degrees of limited...

    Questions. No Answers.

    1. I don't know what this thing is "€" but I hit it sometimes and wonder, and then I immediately forget about it until the next time I hit it by mistake. 2. I don't know why my neighbor lets the free newspapers accumulate at the end of her ten foot driveway until they turn...

    He Couldn't Help It

    If I say the word Lucchese what do you think of? Tony Soprano? Bada Bingo. Is it just me or does anyone else think that organized crime is so yesterday? I mean, I guess I just stopped thinking about it when The Sopranos stopped being a weekly obsession. I stopped thinking that I...

    Something Missing From My Life

    There has been something missing from my life. Until today, I never even knew that this thing existed, much less that there was a void. I sensed that I have been living a life of quiet desperation; I just never knew the source of that desperation, nor what to do about it...

    Why I Don't Surf Ep Much

    I generally find that I have my hands full with my own profile here and when I go looking for stories to read I stay within my circle for the most part. My group is rather prolific and usually that is enough for me. But tonight I was a little bored and I decided to attempt once...

    I Knew It!

    Swearing is good for you. Researchers from England said so. Apparently when you are in pain, the pain is more bearable if you let go with the f bomb.I knew this already, but I couldn't prove it. I just know from personal experience that swearing is good. It has a calming...
