Riding Hell in a Handbasket all the way to NYC

151-hell-in-a-handbasket

You ever go through a day and wonder where has all the time gone?

It’s become one of those days that even if I cloned myself there would still not be enough time to get everything done. I am sitting here taking a breather while wolfing down lunch just to type this while on another window trying to answer all my emails. It’s a repetitive vicious cycle that never seems to end. On one side I feel as if I’m all caught up and raring to go as if I’m pumped up on Viagra and Red Bull, and then on the other I’m all limp as a wet noodle running in quicksand and just can’t get invigorated enough to jump over the hump. My brain feels like a bowl of jello, and not one of the good flavors. More like that green lime monstrosity that no one really seems to like. Maybe I need a mental health day soon. A day to chill out with a few drinks and lay in the sun. I really don’t take enough days off. Maybe it’s just me but I feel that if I take a well deserved day off now and now everything will end up as “Hell in a Handbasket”. Then it’s more of a shit show to deal with when I get back. I need a day soon.

Even then, as I close my eyes and let that warm sun drench my face the bluebird of happiness would probably take a seagull sized dump on my head. Isn’t life swell? Continue reading Riding Hell in a Handbasket all the way to NYC

This is not a day for a frivilous post about food, drinking, ranting or raving. It’s not a day for being all funny and goofy. I had other posts ready but decided that with the recent events to put up a more somber and respectful article expressing my thoughts on what just had occurred up in Boston.

I have seen and been through a lot during my life on this green planet that we call home. Yesterday started out as a beautiful spring day. No one could have foreseen what was about to take place at what should have been a joyous occasion. What started off as a day of celebration in Boston for Patriots Day and the Boston Marathon turned into utter chaos and tragedy. As the events unfolded before our eyes we all were again faced with the stark realities of terror, and the world we all now reside in. I have now seen this all too often. We all have. When will it end? Why does this keep happening? Is there any way we can really fully prepare for this in the future? There are no true answers to these questions. All I know is that we all have seen and experienced enough of this sadness.

This is yet another tragic day in American history. In world history. We must all stay strong and be resiliant yet again. We must not give in to the fear of terror and hate, but rise above it. Whether you are a religious person or not, say a prayer if you feel up to it for those who were affected by yesterday’s attack on human dignity. So many people were hurt, maimed, and even killed due to these senseless actions of someone or some group whose sole purpose was to inflict pain and hurt on our people. On our country. On our collective pshyche. Continue reading I will say a prayer for you today Boston.
