Saturday. Day off. Day of rest. I ignored my therapist and slept til 1:00 today.
To all the parents and mom and dad bloggers out there that read, it was AWESOME! You’re welcome.
My brilliant idea for the weekend was to write 3 or 4 posts and save them in draft so I’d have some stuff “in the queue” to post during the week when I get home from work and don’t feel like doing shit. The problem is that I wound up with bloggers block and couldn’t think of one good idea for a post today, but I could think of about 1000 things that were just randomly funny but didn’t warrant an entire blog.

I was having some image issues. Mostly geek stuff that nobody gives a shit about, but I went to an old reliable source that never let’s me down. His name is Darren, he lives near London, he doesn’t have a blog. He’s just a good dad, husband, general all around good dude that happens to do graphic design for a living. He spent a tremendous amount of time with me today both on Facebook Messenger as well as on Facetime on our iPhones so he could see . . . Read the rest . . .
Quite possibly the greatest compliment I’ve ever received since starting this blog ever. Left to me in a comment yesterday by the yet another new woman I am in love with, @RavingPleb at, of course, The Raving Pleb. I was so touched I had to Tweet it immediately . . . and post it on both my personal Facebook page and the Opticynicism Facebook page. It was so fucking beautiful, I just had to make it the title of tonight’s post, because aside from still being a relatively boring day yet again, things actually kinda went ok for me today. So to start the day with that compliment, it simply gave a little foreshadowing to the rest of the day. Read the rest . . .
I had to add the “without snakes” disclaimer for my loyal reader Teri because apparently I have to do that now. Particularly after the comment she left on yesterdays post. For those of you that missed it, it was something like:
“Where was the fucking WARNING “picture of SNAKE coming up” holy crap dude!”
Ok, it wasn’t something like that . . . it was exactly like that because I copied and pasted. Read the rest . . .
It’s another Monday in Florida and my quest to make my niche here continues. It’s Monday and by definition they are kind of supposed to suck, but this is kind of how every day goes for me around here lately, so if you want to know how the “day in the life of me” goes, it’s a little something like this:
Monday for me, as with any other day does not begin without coffee. Nothing happens until there is coffee. Nothing good, anyway. Read the rest . . .
First of all, let me just say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of you that paid attention to my last post and have been helping to spread the word about the blog. I’ve got new followers on Twitter including TheBloggess, which is about as close to a testimonial from Jesus himself as I can get. Read the rest . . .
The transition has been made and while some of you may still experience some problems over the next couple of days, the move has been made and the blog is no longer in the confining, clutching hands of WordPress.com.
In truth, I’ve actually deactivated the wordpress.com site altogether. Well, I didn’t deactivate it, I simply renamed it, which sort of solved the problem of people trying to come to this website and still getting redirected to the old one. Read the rest . . .
