The Honeymooner

Don't worry, I'm not going to actually moon anyone...not yet, anyway. I'm referring of course to the fact that I'm very nearly done with my 3rd week here at the new job, and I'm still loving it.

Of course I know that reality will probably set in at some point and I'll be faced with the gut wrenching question of 'What the f**k did I just do?!?!?!' Hahaha. Yeah right.

 No. It won't. I mean, sure, I may actually stop LOVING it here, but for me, the opportunities and chance to make a difference here outweigh anything I can come up against.

It really is the perfect fit for me for this stage in my life and really, I don't think I could have asked for anything more. Whatever deity you do or do not believe in, I can tell you that this job...this opportunity was the answer to many years of prayer.

And the timing was fantastic. A couple of other cool things have happened. Due to a dead Android phone (And the fact that I was strictly budget minded, I now am the proud owner of an iPhone (just the 4, not the 4s).

It was literally the least expensive smart phone Verizon had.

Also I'm typing this entry on my portable bluetooth keyboard hooked up to my iPad 2 (not the 3). That one was not a necessity, but a treat. I figure after putting up with shit at the other place for 14 years, I was going to treat myself. So far so good, I dig it.

I guess in short, I'd have to say, life is good. Actually, that's not quite true. Life is neither good nor bad. But MY days are happy ones these days. I guess that's all we can hope for.

 Have a great one!

Out of Sorts

Not sure what my deal is today. I got up this morning to go for a walk and it was spitting rain, but no biggie. My thriftstore Nikes were kind of hurting my feet, so that didn't help. But it felt good to go for the walk (other than the hurting feet). And it's all going well...and then I get into work and just turn into PMS-Man.  I don't know what my deal is. I just feel bitchy this morning and I'm not sure why. So..um. Yeah. That's all I got.

Marriage Material??

I had a friend call me today, fuming. I consider myself a good listener on most days. Considering that I was out of town on a work trip and doing absolutely nothing in my hotel room, my listening game was on-point.

She recounted the exchange that sent her off. I will spare you some of the more personal details, but the gist was, at one point, the dude-bro she was talking to flat out told her that she wasn’t marriage material.

Torn between wanting to be a supportive friend and being completely gobsmacked, I felt her frustration. No. That’s not quite right. I didn’t feel the same frustration she felt. I’m approaching what some consider middle age. I’m white. I’m primarily interested in women. Oh, and I have a penis. So...no, I can never truly feel the same frustration she was feeling. Or an anger that comes from the same place her anger came from. No matter how in touch I am witn my feminine side (whatever the fuck that actually means).

Instead, the frustration and anger I was feeling w…

A Tribute to Limozeen

So...you may recall that I recently got my very first P.O.S. Electric Guitar back. And you may also recall the folly with the "amp" from Freecycle.

And now, dear readers, I will let you in on the dramatic conclusion to those harrowing tales.

From Bob at work I recently got a Vox Pathfinder 15amp which looks a little (exactly) like this:
I have to say, the amp freakin' rocks. It's got built in tremelo, and this killer overdrive feature which makes the thing sound crunchy as all get out.

So tonight, I decided to try it all out. The amp, the POS Guitar, the FAB distortion pedal (purchased the day of the Sam Ash incident), the Alesis drum machine and the Alesis io2.

The results are just...well, funny.

I give you the theme song to the soon to be hit WB-Series, "My 'Tard Husband." I call it "shortbus." Take a listen here. It's about 3MB in size and 4:14 of unbearable cheese (and the guitars get markedly louder at about the minute mark-you've been …
