I have always enjoyed writing and exploring new ideas, new beliefs, and the dreams that rattle around inside my head. I have enjoyed the current state of science, human progress, fantasy and existence and write about them when I can.
Cherry Flavored Celebrity Kisses
It's late on Friday. The rain was pouring down like monsoon season in the Pacific Rim. To make things all the more uncomfortable, the temperature had not dropped below ninety degrees for a month. Life is a sticky, messy thing, and the weather was just making things all the worse. By the time Russell got home from work his suit was damp and his two hundred dollar shirt soaked from his shoulders to his waist. Russell was looking forward to Friday but nothing about his day had gone right. His best friend was working on fixing him up with a girl for a month and tonight was supposed to be the big night. Russell knew that postponing was not going to win him any points.
The Dash - The Thing We All Share.
In honor of Tom Bradbury. 2007 to 2021 or, putting it differently, 2007 - 2021. It's the dash that is consistent. The dash signifies the common denominator in a world so divided. Black, Yellow, White, Brown...it doesn't matter what your color, beliefs, religions, or sexual preferences are. It doesn't matter how beautiful, ugly, rich, poor, or lucky you think you are. There's a dash for everything.
Here's One Way To Get A Little Naked Back In The Relationship.
Monogamy isn't in our nature. We often think we can do it, but truthfully it's not something humans are conditioned naturally to live with. Sure, there are some that spend a lifetime with one partner. Some, even manage to do it happily. For many people, they're going to be plagued by thoughts of other people. They'll settle for one but when they're together, especially in bed, their minds wander to the "highlight reel" because the same old thing has become boring. Couples get stagnant and stop enjoying life, stop being with each other because they want to, and are only there out of a sense of obligation. So, how do you deal with a monogamous life and still have that youthful energy that brought you together? By enjoying the things you weren't supposed to do when you were young. Remember, you're not dead, yet!
The Ugly Phenomenon Of Asian Hate!
After hearing about the events of Asian hate crimes over the past year and then seeing the event in Atlanta, I got to thinking about it and discussing it with a friend. I'll grant, what he said, made sense to me on some level. He told me if everyone thought about it as simply as I did maybe it would be a better place. Granted, my thought process is simple sometimes. Especially when it comes to people. Because people are far too complex to be simplified. It's frustrating though, so I'm going to have a frank discussion on paper about hate.
My Most Embarrassing Brush With Fame!
The year was 2005. The WWE was coming to an area close enough to get tickets. We were in the midst of the Afghan conflict and still getting used to our new way of life, not that that would have stopped me from getting tickets. To make things even better, the WWE and some of the superstars were doing autograph signings to support the families of soldiers suddenly being called overseas. My dad, having served in the military, gave me a love and respect for our men and women in uniform so I went out of my way to make it to the signing. By this point in my life, I had an eleven-year-old son who also happened to be a huge Shawn Michaels fan. Shawn had come out of retirement and was back as a full-time performer so we had a chance to see our hero. At the time, the biggest draw for the young, youngish, and let's face it, guys with working eyeballs was none other than Trish Stratus.
My Most Embarrassing Night As An Officer Because Of Taco Bell!
This happened to me in the late nineties and was at the time an extremely embarrassing experience. So hey, let's share! Work had been stressing me out and I just wasn't sleeping with a damn that week. Not that it's an excuse, but I'm painting the picture and giving some context. I got off work at noon on Saturday. Being a single parent I had a seven-year-old that had spent two days with my parents I was so busy. Right after work, I went to pick up my son and we went for lunch. Back then I had an affinity for quick and easy lunches so we picked up the mighty, Taco Bell. I had two burritos and four tacos. I bought extra to throw in the microwave before work because my plan was to stay awake until seven and then take my son to my folks' house for the night. One more night before my weekend began was all I could think of that day.
Topless Nudity For The Girls, An Equal Right, Or Just Good News?
Considering that my first article on the subject went over so well I have been contemplating a follow-up piece. If you haven't read the first one, it seemed to tickle some funny bones and resonated with others.
Why Conspiracy Theories Take Root And Grow
I've always wondered about conspiracies and conspiracy theories as I got to adulthood and began to pay attention to the news. There's been some interesting ones, some not-so-interesting ones, and then there were the theories that seemed too far-fetched not to be entertained by them. My curiosity started with the question "how is this a thing?" In a world of many types of people, anything is possible, but I always imagined if I could see the holes in the story, then anybody could. But, they grow, like a fresh seed in the spring. Conspiracies take on a life of their own, growing from creation to adulthood, like an embryo. They can be mapped from their very beginning to their very end. They have a shelf life, much like humans in the grand scheme.
The Tragic Death It Could Have Been If We Never Met And How This Little Guy Picked Me
I have nothing against dogs, or any other pet, so don't judge by the fact that I prefer cats. They're a more independent type of pet, usually, that is, and often times are just as entertaining as any other creature we adopt for our homes. Not to mention the fact that the little things don't require fenced-in yards to run if you're too busy to always be there for a dog. That said, if people have dogs, I do realize how much fun they are but the animal has to fit the owner as much as the owner has to fit the animal.
Revolting Stories Of Sex And Disgust From A Fly On The Wall
If you have ever seen the show sex sent me to the E.R. then you know emergency rooms are prone to seeing the impossible to believe. Watching the show reminded me of some of the stories that I knew were true and some of the greats that I have heard from other credible sources. For years I was like a "Fly On The Wall," as I got to see, hear, and experience the best, worst, and bizarre of what goes on in some of America's centers of healing.
