X-Mas vs X-No Mas

The world has turned into a perpetual Onion headline... and I am dealing with the somewhat cliche trappings of familyhood, and all the while still trying to forge and create something of substance, some creation that I can actually be proud of and call my own that isn't some biological spawn of me. While at the same time, I am trying my best to guide and instruct my non-spawns to a life worth living, while I often struggle to type a sentence that is worth reading.

I Get It, I Get It, You're Not Getting It

Too many projects on the dance floor...

I have good problems. But also the usual ones. Several stories are vying for attention, maybe they'll be solid stories, maybe it's the same god damn story wanting to be retold, but regardless there is only so much time in the day.

I am at the Sunny Side of my lunch break... using time not so wisely by wise-assing.

It's a good thing I didn't win any billions in any lottery because I'm sure I would've seriously tried to arrange it that the letter "H" should come before the letter "G." It would not be easy to convince the populous of such a move, but maybe if given the right amount of money and influence, who knows? It would probably take a hundred million dollar ad campaign, laborious and potentially boring lobbying, bribes galore and such. A lot of "and such."

Also, I was also going to cure cancer if I won, so maybe it's not a good thing I didn't win.

It has been a while... but it is once again, story time.

(I have a story in the Winter 2016 edition.)

Matching Twenty Fifteen

Two posts in, even though it is not Tuesday. Well, it's Tuesday in Iowa, so that counts.

Legal Scotch

It is a new year, another year, one more year gone by. I am drinking 18 year old scotch that is simply divine. I am chasing it with some Oregon gin and some fancy tonic. Yup. I think about all those journals and blogs that start with, "it's been a while since I wrote in this" and decided to only ostensibly mention such a thing, while I decided to take a break from break taking, and mash out a few digital scribbles. Whether it be musing, or ramblings, or the occasional mutterings, I would like to post more in the Donkey Pineapple realm. So this is that.

Thoughts on Yahtzee and Grandma and Barns

Goodbye. Thank you for holding on until I could make it out to Iowa and say goodbye one more time. You inspired far more people than you probably ever realized.You continue to inspire.

Also, thank you for letting me watch Zapped! that one time, despite Scott Baio's thespian efforts, or lack thereof.
