A while back, I said I really missed blogging and was going to try it. That didn’t pan out. I don’t know why – but it didn’t. Then a few weeks ago I tried to show somebody a post from my blog and it was all jacked up and even blocked at his work place. I “cleaned it up” but well, I guess not really. I just spent a full morning cleaning out this basically worthless corner of the internet – and I do believe it’s really cleaned. If not, I’ll continue my fight!
It’s at times like this that I wonder how many people actually go to a website, are immediately re-directed to some other random website and think “OH SHIT! I need me some of this russian porn subscription!” I have to believe, based on the proliferation of bullshit, that people actually do. I don’t know – just my take on it all.
Anyway – it’s a tired Saturday for me. I got called for work at 2:00 am on Friday and my body/brain doesn’t recover like it used to. Basically kicked my ass. I’ll come through!
So last month, a friend of mind complained about something I know nothing about. I was bored so I decided to pretend I was an expert on the subject. This odd interaction led me to purchasing stuff… The subject was “Tile Bluetooth Trackers”. He apparently uses them to find things. I decided that as much as I lose things, these could help me.
I may have a sick sense of humor, but I found it utterly hilarious that the USPS *LOST* the items I bought to track the stuff I lose!
Here is the strange side-effect of owning 2 of these Tile devices. I have not “lost” my keys in 2 full weeks. That is a new record! How do I know this? I have DESPERATELY wanted to use this gizmo to find my keys! I want to play with it! Nope … i’m “blocked”.
Anyways – I like not losing stuff enough to get some for my wallet, my work badge, and other crap I lose… I think they are cool gadgets!
So back in October, Max came to visit. I *REALLY* wanted to take him motorcycling, but being a AGATT kinda guy (All Gear All The Time) – I don’t take people riding without at least a helmet and a jacket. Jackets are expensive … so I thought who do I know that has one that fits the little man? My good friend, and fellow Motoref, Jones’ wife is small… and has the jacket Max is wearing in the photo.
Now – keep in mind that was in October! Jones and I have exchanged texts “I need to pick it up”… “Ok”… “not home…” back and forth. Yesterday – it took a strange twist! I get a text – expected… but unexpected content!
Now – I’ve been to known to do some stupid stuff – but take a friends crap to Good Will…. I’m not THAT DUMB! I assured him it was at home, and she had nothing to worry about! I then said … Wait … what size is it??? It was actually 1 size larger (not a big deal) and now … Max has his OWN motorcycle jacket! Mike came over and delivered … I still owe him $20 – but never fear, I’ll text him!
