Sack Lunch — January 29, 2017

Sack Lunch

When I was in 3rd or 4th grade the school sometimes would offer a lunch called the “sack lunch”. I tried for years to remember what was in it, but the only 2 things I was sure of was string cheese and a fruit leather. I remember there was some kind of sweet nuts. Then last week when I bought some honey roasted sunflower seeds it brought back memories. The only problem is that I forget what else was in the lunch. I’m not sure if there was a sandwich or not. If there was it might have been baloney. It might have been the first time I ever ate baloney. It tasted like an uncooked hotdog. I hate baloney. Although I do love mortadella. But that meat has a higher fat content, and I wouldn’t try that kind of meat until 6th grade.

Lethargic Rooster — January 28, 2017

Lethargic Rooster

I haven’t blogged in a while. I’ve been feeling lethargic. I have been writing though, just not blogging.

Happy year of the rooster! My mom is a rooster. That is totally not her personality. She is not very talkative or enjoys the spotlight. Nor is she a flashy dresser.

The cold rainy weather is making me lethargic. That was the only time it was good to be in that stuffy apartment. Was that it was usually very warm in the winter. Figures the winter I move from that stuffy apartment it’s a cold winter. All the winters I lived in that stuffy apartment it was warm winters.

Like a Hot Steaming Pile of Garbage — January 19, 2017

Like a Hot Steaming Pile of Garbage

People love garbage, no I’m not talking about that awesome band fronted by Shirley Manson.

No, I mean garbage writing. It seems people love garbage writing. Not the kind of garbage writing where you write through it. Or practice writing. I’ll just shit out a book like everybody else does. Then I’ll get all mad and butthurt when people don’t like my garbage published book. Then send people messages on amazon and on facebook bothering people who wrote bad reviews of the book. If they can do it then so can I. So on with the garbage! The only thing stopping me now is the money. I could plunk down a few hundred bucks and publish my own hot steaming pile of garbage. In both formats print and e-book. I can have the ultimate author brag “I’m a published writer”.

How much should I charge for it though? I’m thinking anywhere between 99¢ and $50.

The Story of Nothing — January 18, 2017

The Story of Nothing

The title was taken from that Aquabats’ song.

“nothing hurts worse, than being nothing”

Apparently I don’t exist! According to Covered California I don’t exist and can’t sign up or healthcare. But wait how did I do all those other things like apply for welfare, end up in job club (I mean hell), have healthcare before, apply for college and all those other things?

I tried to apply for healthcare, but nobody can seem to help.

No, really everybody gave me the runaround all morning. They can’t tell me who to call and gave me a bunch of dead numbers. I think I am going to need mental help after trying to apply. Then I got sassed by some street level bureaucrat over the phone. I wish it was like a cartoon and I could have punched that lady over the phone. She was so mad I got that number.

I know it’s like that Night Court episode I saw with a young pre-Seinfeld Micheal Richards in it. He plays a litigant who thinks he’s invisible and he tries to rob somebody, but he is “seen”. Later in the episode he thinks people can only see him because he is wearing clothes.

Of course people can only see me because I’m wearing clothes!

But not for Free — January 16, 2017

But not for Free

So I went to a job interview this morning. It was ok I guess. The guy who was there before me they were raving about because he was ready to come in anytime and he could not stop smiling. (I should have thought about this song)

I lied and said I don’t go to school. Like I care about school? I want them to know I don’t go to school, and that I’m available at anytime. I mean if I did get hired I’d totally quit school in a heartbeat. The only reason I go to school is because I can’t find work. They said if I do hear something it will be in 2 days.

I was worried during the interview I thought they were going to make me do weird things or answer weird questions. Like that time I went to a job interview and for some strange reason they made me convert time in time zones, and then name a bunch of items off their menu. I just answered relevant questions for this interview. I made sure to study this time. ^-^

Plus I’ve been having problems with KCBS TV. We noticed the problem on Saturday when my dad wanted to watch football and we could not get any signal after fighting with the antenna for a while. Since he is stressed out about the garage he blamed it on my mom and me (no surprise). We barely get the channel in my parent’s bedroom. If we breathe on the antenna the channel goes away.

I’ve been having problems trying to get their channel since the 1st week of January. I mean I know there reception is a little iffy where I live, but it was total shit reception or the channel could not be received for hours at a time. I would not be so enraged if they had at least put a message on any of the online stuff. Facebook, twitter, their website, etc. Anything! But no! You know what their suggestion is to sign up for CBS-ALL Access. Seriously you want me to pay for a free tv channel!? FUCK THAT SHIT! This is the blanket statement they are giving.

“We apologize you are having trouble receiving the KCBS signal. Currently there is an issue at our transmitter and we are working to correct the problem but weather has been hampering our efforts.

If you are unable to get our signal after adjusting your antenna another option is to go to www.cbs.com and you can sign up for a free 7-day trial of CBS All Access which allows you to watch ‘Live TV’ (KCBS).”

I know UTB was low budget and didn’t work a lot of the time, but at least they let viewers know on their website when they did have problems.

While I was sniffing around trying to find out about KCBS TV I found this. Is this some kind of joke? I mean it looks homemade or something. Plus the launch date for this channel keeps getting moved up.

Bad luck Hold Over — January 13, 2017

Bad luck Hold Over

I forgot what today is until my mom mentioned it. Like I have mentioned many times before I’m a very superstitious person. The only people I think who are more superstitious than me are athletes. I know a lot of people like to brag about how smart they are because they don’t believe in them while I do so. 😛

Usually if I survive my birthday mostly unscathed it’s a good birthday. I sound like Pete from Trophy Wife.

There was a lot of bad luck stuff that had been held over from previous days/weeks. I mean personal stuff.

I did have some bad luck online I got locked of 4 websites. Which is funny since 4 is also a bad luck number.

Wouldn’t that have been funny if inauguration day had fallen on Friday the 13th? A lot of people would have made connections and omens?

My Love/Hate Relationship with Facebook — January 12, 2017

My Love/Hate Relationship with Facebook

This all started back around the 2012 election my facebook feed was crazy and really annoying. I tried everything installing apps and a bunch of other stuff. Nothing seemed to work, and political rants were clogging up my feed. Facebook didn’t seem so bad during non-election years. I knew 2016 was going to be a shitstorm of an election so I decided to lay off facebook like in September. Then I came back in December. I realized I didn’t miss it. Once I stalled out on Cookie Jam I realized how boring it is. Honestly I really have no use for it. Even more since I got a smart phone. I don’t need to use facebook as a gaming platform. The only reason I truly keep it now is to use it to enter contests and things.

I was thinking about Kirby and the episode “Un-Reality TV” where DeDeDe make it look like Cappy town is being attacked, but it is really just him staging things. It’s funny when you realize your life is like a Kirby cartoon.

 

Impending Doom (Everybody Hates You) — January 11, 2017

Impending Doom (Everybody Hates You)

In just a few days it’s gonna happen something so horrible I don’t even wanna think about it. But if all these celebrities have so much power why aren’t they doing anything to stop it? Some little person like me can’t do much of anything to stop this.

I don’t even wanna say or type that person’s name I’m have a looming feeling if I do something bad will happen to me. The thought of that person becoming president makes me feel a little nauseous and dizzy every time I roll around that person’s name with the word “president” attached to it.

Obama is and was well loved by the public I mean people are still hatin’ on Dubbya after all these years. Just think about it.

You betta be a Democrat and vote for anything democrat. Cause that’s how we do in Cali.

Cake for Breakfast — January 10, 2017

Cake for Breakfast

I was thinking about the song “Cake for Breakfast”. I wondered what would I do if Greg Lee did offer me cake for breakfast for some strange reason. I would most likely not turn it down. Although I would have to question the fact why Greg is offering me cake for breakfast in the first place.

And when you wake up you don’t feel it or at least I didn’t. It takes a month or so to let it sink in. Especially when I’m at school since the people there are so much younger than me.

Speaking of novelty songs I got out my old Aquabats tapes which sound pretty horrible dude to age. I must have had those tapes for about 20 years now. I think I should get those albums in a different format. They are “The Return of the Aquabats” and “The Fury of the Aquabats”.

I went out to eat the teriyaki chicken was gross it was worse than cafeteria teriyaki chicken so you know it is bad. It was funny listening to some kids being scolded by their mom for not wanting to eat vegetables. No bananas in syrup this time. 😦 Well at least he didn’t do his high school shtick, so that was relief.

I think my dad doesn’t like that Out of this World Carmen Sandiego CD I have. He’s always making excuses to turn it down real low in the car. Then why is it ok to blast “my favorite” band Jane’s Addiction? I think he thinks I’m a big Primus fan too only cause my ultra cool cousin likes them.

No super spectacular presents this year. The thing I really wanted was more phone time. That new phone really eats it up, and well I think I watched too many videos on the phone.
