Bits and stuff

So much for any big, wordy posts so far. So I leave you with some ramblings instead.

I went from whatever illness I had the week before to something new with my respiratory system. Lovely. I've been coughing and horking up green lung cookies for the last few days.

-----

Tomatoes and tomato products make my tongue swell up. I was reminded of this tonight as I was eating a BLT.

We have owned our home for a little over 12 years now, and I just realized there are 13 steps you have to take from the ground floor to the second floor. Odd.

Today was unusually warm. Warm enough that we broke a record set back in 1990. It got up to 73°F. Even though I'm under the weather for the most part, it was nice enough to work on the barn a little more...

The never-ending barn raising...

It's been mentioned before, but I'm not the most social human on the planet. In most public situations I tend to feel that I have the social skills of a 10-year-old raised by wolves, aside from within the doors of my businesses (and even that can be iffy at times). I'd rather gnaw off my own arm than strike up a conversation with a stranger.

Random thought: what happens if you are picking your nose and the airbag goes off in your auto?

-----

And this is still one of my favorite songs and videos as of late... Capital Cities "Safe and Sound":

Sebu has a mighty nice beard.

Until next time...

Curbing

In an effort to become a little better at my blogging, I've decided to curb my Facebook usage.

Again.

I know: I've tried before and failed.

But I feel Facebook is one of the biggest reasons I've decreased my "meaningful" blogging in the last couple of years. Mostly because I can post a little random thought and not have to think about it in depth. Which is okay, I suppose. It's what I used Twitter for back in the day. But I feel like currently it is hindering my creativity in word usage and thought. That, and the constant stream of other people's consciousness gets a little heavy in my own brain at times. I can barely process my own thoughts without having to put my shields up constantly to block out other people's thoughts. I can't imagine what it would be like for a true telepath. Ugh.

To that end, I'm starting by deleting the Facebook app from my phone. That way I'm not tempted to post when I'm mobile (which is most of the time), nor will I be tempted to check the constant stream of human thoughts either when I could be doing something more productive.

Maybe this will help me focus a little better on other things.

Here's hoping.

Until next time...
Erik
