I've got nothing to say that you want to hear

Well for once I’ve started writing and already have some things on mind so I don’t have to bullshit through a few paragraphs to get to my point. So before I start off on something irrelevant let me begin. For those of you who have followed and actually care, I have almost gotten my downstairs dwelling almost completed. The painting is completed, I’ve received (and constructed) my IKEA furniture, and all that’s left is to put things away where I want them to be. The only thing I’ll have left to do after that is buy a sweet TV and PS3 so I’ll have something to do down here, and find somebody to come over and spend time with. Nothing screams loser more than coming home, playing Madden, and watching a movie by yourself; although living in your parent’s basement kinda already says that. But it allows me to save up my money (theoretically) so I can make it out into the world one day.

This next paragraph is going to be a bunch or totally random and unrelated statements; for starters today is my half birthday. Next I think I fractured my toe last night kicking it against a piece of new furniture in my room. My finger that I nearly sliced off is aching and I’m not sure why, probably has something to do with basketball and stitches holding my tendon together and crazy weather changes….. That’s about it I really thought I had more things to say, guess not. Although there is a Reeces peanut butter cup laying on the floor that I’ve been eyeballing for the past few minutes if that counts.

So I guess its time to continue on to the next random thing that’s been on my mind for a while which is dreams. Where the fucks do they come from! Do they have any meaning? I mean I realize some do like the typical late to the airport or show up to school naked but I mean the weird ass ones. When I’m running around Hong Kong with some strippers trying not to get killed my some drug dealers is that supposed to mean anything? Or when I’m lost in an airport and Nick decides to kill himself does that mean I secretly hate him? I just don’t understand how these weird ass things get inside your head. It’s not like I was thinking about how I wanted Nick to jump off a balcony just as I was falling asleep. I don’t even know how it’s possible to dream! I have a hard enough time remembering what I did yesterday, why you gotta mess with my brain and throw dreams into the mix. The worst is always when you have a dream about your everyday life and you can’t tell later on if what happened was in your dream or in reality. I’ve dreamed about work a couple times and had to stop and think, did I ever race a work van around the beltway or was that my dream? It’s just weird (oh and P.S. I just ate the Reeces) to think about what goes on in your subconscious mind. Sometimes I have such weird and elaborate dreams in a row that I get excited to sleep just to dream.

I’ve really got nothing else on my mind expect how bad my toe and finger hurt so I’m gonna call it a night. Plus I’ve got to get up in 5 hours to work a 10 hour day so I best be getting to bed now. I’m to tired to think of some witty clever ending or title for this post so just deal with it. Peace bitches!!!

"It is dangerous to be sincere unless you are also stupid."

Well Im back once again for my not daily posting. In all fairness I have written since my last post I just haven’t published it. Why you might ask? Because like I said from the beginning this isn’t about blogging it’s about me damn it! What did I write about? I don’t remember, obviously nothing of importance because if it was 1. I would have posted it 2. I would have remembered 3. Nothing I write is of importance. I mean seriously I’m not writing for a fucking science journal here. But before I piss you off in my introductory paragraph let me remind you to just be happy that I’m deciding to write publically and enjoy the following.

What really made me want to write was the other day on 99.5 on their morning show they made a general public announcement that you could get injured from wearing UGG boots/slippers. So they had people (girls) call in who had been injured due to the wearing of UGGS. The calls went something like this

Caller: “Hey I was wearing UGG boots and I sprained my ankle”

Kane: “How did you do that?”

Caller: “I was walking up stairs and I missed a step and sprained my ankle. It is the UGGS fault because they are so light you don’t have to lift your feet, its like you glide on the floor”


Caller 2: “So I was outside shoveling snow in my UGGS and I came inside and I skipped really bad and I swear I broke my tail bone”

Kane: “And it was because you were wearing UGGS?”

Caller 2: “Oh of course”


Caller 3: “Ya I sprained my ankle because of my UGG boots”

Kane: “Ya what happened”

Caller 3: “Well I was (insert completely harmless activity, probsbly walking), and I rolled my ankle and sprained it!”

Kane: “And that was because you were wearing UGGS?”

Caller 3: “Ya they have absolutely no ankle support so when I rolled it it just went out”

Ok honestly UGGS were not the problem, the owners were. Notice nobody called in saying my UGGS attacked me, or they gave you some sort of rash. No you did an everyday activity and fell because you are a moron. You would have never have blamed your stupid boots until you heard on the radio that they were the source of injuries. The only reason you know you were wearing your boots when it happened was because you wore them every single day between December 1st and somewhere in the middle of February. Flip flips have absolutely no ankle support but you don’t hear radio shows talking about how dangerous they are. I slipped after shoveling snow, well no shit dumbass; you probably had snow stuck on the bottom of the treads. And my personal favorite, its their fault because they are so light its like gliding on the floor, is that really your excuse for saying I tripped walking up the stairs? We’ve all done it before; hell I’ve done it a lot. Not once did I blame my shoes (or lack thereof).

Before I start a frenzy about stupid people and how much they irritate me, I’ll switch the subject, sort of. Because the job site that I am working at right now involves a lot of manual labor and not too much of the thinking part there is a lot of discussion and thinking done while at work. I don’t know if it’s all the drugs I’m on, the hours of time to think, or the hilarious people I work with (or any combination of the three) there are a lot of really funny things done/said at work. I had the brilliant idea of starting an animated sketch comedy show about the things we say at work. There have been many great jokes thrown around so far so I’ll spit one out and let me know if you actually think its funny. A guy is living his ordinary life and he notices he’s checking out both girls and guys, he’s a little confused as to his sexual orientation and doesn’t know what to do. He goes day in and day out trying to figure it out. Eventually he decides to pray and asks God for some sort of sign letting him know if he’s straight or gay. The next day he gets up and is pumped for a great day and ready to see what God is going to show him. As soon as he steps outside there is a handwritten sign in his lawn saying “HOMO”. He is a little sad ad first and then after a second or two comes to terms with it and goes on his merry (gay) way. Now add a little more humor in-between, some good animation, and music and I think it would be funny. It might just be me because I had the idea but let me know. That is just one example of the weird things that come to my mind while working; and it’s not even the funniest of weirdest. It would be the humor and animation of Family Guy, and the concept of Robot Chicken (short little animated skits, but with good animating and actually funny).

Because of the hard manual labor that I do (no matter how much fun we have doing it) I am completely exhausted and need to go to bed. Although I don’t write for feedback usually let me know if that is funny in any way. And be completely honest because if it’s not I’m ok with it because it’s what gets me through the day and that’s all that matters.

Looking up good titles is just to hard now, just be happy I'm writing

What to say….. the possibilities are endless and I have no idea what to talk about. It sucks not having anything going on inside my head it’s always just so empty. At 7-11 I was so zoned out the guy behind me had to ask if I was in line! Guess that’s what happens when you’re tired all the time and have been off and on a bunch of different meds for a while.

In other news my room is still not freakin done! I have all my crap moved to the center of the room so we can paint my “living room” before we get everything settled. I guess I shouldn’t complain because I’m never home anyway and when I am I’m either in bed or on the computer, and I can still do both. Its just not as relaxing coming home and trying to fight through a bookshelf and desk just to get to my computer. Eventually I would like to get it to the point where I could actually have people over and entertain them them. Speaking of entertain my new phone is totally bad ass! I can do so much stuff on it, its like having a mini computer. I know the technology has been around for a while but I just finally have the phone that can do it. I can watch movies on this freakin thing, I don’t know when I would but I can and that’s all I care about.

So once again I’m writing about pointless nonsense and still haven’t come up with anything good to write about. That’s probably why I stopped writing in the first place because I had some sort of writers block. That’s not really the case though because if I were to write a book or screen play I would rock. I have so much weird ides going through this dome I could come up with a decent story, it’s the actual writing it down and editing and rewriting and making the story flow and follow itself that I don’t have the time or patience for. So instead I write a blog and yet nothing comes to mind. Maybe I should start writing short stories or something. I don’t know what purpose that would serve exceot that if they were so good they might read it in middle schools 100 years after I die.

Speaking of middle school, that is the dumbest thing ever. Every single class is a pre something to a class you will take in high school. Pre algebra, biology, even the electives are that way too. The history class will be re taught and English is the same every year so that’s obvious. I get the fact they try to prepare you mentally for high school but it fails. You think you’re so big and bad because you have a locker and block scheduling, but you still have recess and field trips. I was so naive back in middle school that high school was a culture shock even though I had seen a lot (or so I had thought). I just think the school system could do a better job or preparing kids. Elementary school all they talk about is what middle school will be like, and in middle school it’s all about preparing for high school. High school is all about preparing you for college. I dropped out of college! So was it all a waste? I’m not entirely sure but instead of focusing so much about what ahead of us why not make it applicable to our current time. Its pretty safe to say that in middle school nobody knows what they are going to be doing for their professional career. Since we don’t know what our future holds and don’t know what calluses will be more practical and which will be of more use, why not tell us why we need it now instead of in 15 years when were working. Back in middle school if you told me I would need (insert any subject here) in my career I would laugh in your face and say “doing what?” If you had told me that instead of preparing me for high school that you were making me a more learned person and that it would help me in my career overall than I could understand. I am definitely not working in the industry that I thought I would be and that’s how it is for a lot of people. Even in college we have to take general study classes. A lot of people (even me for a while) thought that was the dumbest thing ever. If we have a major and are taking classes specifically for that field, why the hell would we still need to take other classes that don’t pertain to our field of study? The simple answer is because you never know what you’re going to do. I was a business major and am now working with electricity. Obviously electrical classes are not a general study class you get the point. Also there is no harm in being a well rounded person and knowing a lot, you’ll never know when it comes in handy. For all you know it could help you answer the million dollar question on jeopardy.

That may not mean much coming from a junior college dropout who never really cared for school in the first place; put hey I didn’t ask if it did. You aren’t reading this because you asked my opinion but because you wanted to know what I had to say; and dammit that’s what I have to say.

So that’s it for tonight, signing off

Self titled

So it’s been quite some time since I last wrote and I’m feeling a little guilty. Not because of what I told myself but because people actually started asking why I haven’t been writing. I thought people only looked on here because I asked them to but it turns out my friends are just as bored as I am and resort to my blog for some sort of entertainment. Im teasing its only because I’m a horrible person and this is the only way my friends out of state (or country in one case) can see how I’m doing. I’m used to disappointing myself but I can’t stand to let down others.

In other news winter seems to have finally ended and the nicer weather is approaching. I cannot begin to describe how happy this makes me. Just waking up and not shivering makes my day that much better. Next weekend is daylight savings and before I know it it’s going to be summer. Something about summer just makes everything better. Even though in the summer work is harder and longer I don’t care. I’ll work my 12 hour day and it will still be light outside so I’m going to go have fun. I’ll probably only get like 50 hours of sleep all summer but it will totally be worth it right?

In other other news I’ve been off and on medications a lot lately and it’s probably the coolest thing ever. I decided to start taking the lithium on top of Prozac. Now I had suddenly stopped taking Prozac and all it really did was give me some serious headaches, so I figured stopping lithium would be about the same. That last statement couldn’t be any more false! I was in Florida for a few days and had been of my medication and I was tripping balls. I would hallucinate, feel like the world was moving off its axis, feel waves in my bed, and other weird stuff you see in psycho people, no wonder why they always seem happy and are laughing.

Its 11:30 and I really have nothing to write about and don’t feel like trying to come up with a topic, especially with the warm weather I need to get my sleep in now! So if you’re reading this stay tuned for more to come


Well its been a few weeks since I last wrote so I figured I’d give it another go. Funny I stopped working out about the same time I stopped writing, and low and behold I worked out today too, maybe that’s what motivates me to tell people all the pointless shit in my life. Speaking of pointless shit, winter Olympics anybody? Ya didn’t think so. The winter Olympics have to be the worst sporting events ever, I mean what is the point of competing in “sports” that are only competed in during the Olympics? Ice dancing, speed skating, curling, when was the last time you watched that outside of the Olympics? Summer Olympics at least has events that you see on a semi regular basis, and sports you can play in high school. You would get laughed at if you asked the athletics director where to sign up for the bobsled team. Don’t get me wrong, I think they are all amazing athletes and fierce competitors, I just think the sports themselves are a little dull. I’d like to see one or two people from each country fight in a no rules cage match or something, not some fairy doing ballet on ice. There’s a reason the expression of adding “on ice” to emphasize how much you disliked something.

On a brighter note I finally feel like some of my luch has finally turned around. Work has picked up so I’m no longer trapped around my house. Work has gotten a lot better, in fact they got me a work cell phone, I’m going to Florida for training a week from today, and am going to more training a week from then. So all in all its looking up.

Ok I’ve been on here 30 minutes and only written this much. Obviously I have too much other stuff going on and can’t think so I’m calling it quits. Hopefully I get back into it and write a little more frequently again
