12 of 12, November 2018 edition

The 12 of 12 Challenge was created by Chad Darnell and picked up by a number of random bloggers who linked back to him and vice versa. Chad stopped doing the 12 of 12 Challenge in December 2011, but passed the torch to someone who hasn’t kept up with it. I am giving my shout-out to Blobby of Blobby’s Blog as he is the one who initially inspired me to do the Challenge, and he still does it as well.

This is my 83rd “12 of 12.” A Monday. My Sunday. And I’m a few days late getting around to posting this. And I somehow ended up 2 pictures short this month. Fail.

12:37 AM: I am not a gamer in any sense of the word, but my bestest buddy Patrick started me playing Red Dead Redemption 2 a day ago, and I have to say, I love it. Mostly because it’s a fairly open world, and you can wander around and do whatever you want for the most part.
12:07 PM: Working on some paperwork for the businesses. It never ends.
1:11 PM: Post-shower selfie. Because monitoring progress over time is good, right? Not that I’m actually doing anything.
2:09 PM: A monetary break from one game to try out another a friend has. An old one. Bioshock. I like it just for the Art Deco design.
4:07 PM: Monday Beveraging. One of my local hangouts: JJ’s!
5:06 PM: Some of my peeps.
6:32 PM: Meowingtonne pre-warming. It’s cold today. 18 degrees!
7:10 PM: Venue change. Monday night pool league. I don’t play, but all my buddies do.
8:09 PM: HQ!
8:57 PM: Another bathroom selfie. And yes, I dressed myself today.

Until next time...


So… I have a post ready to publish about the attack from this week, but I’m holding off on publishing it until I talk with my attorney monday. He has asked me not to speak with the media, at least not until he does whatever it is he needs to do. So I feel like if I put something out here they might get hold of it.

All that said, I just want everyone to know how much I appreciate them and their love.

Until next time...


For those who haven’t heard, I was admitted to the cardiac unit for overnight monitoring and testing after having what is tentatively being called a heart attack this morning while I was getting ready for work.

Aside from some flushing, I’m “fine” at the current time. As fine as one can be in the hospital.

Keep my Husbear in your thoughts, as he’s obviously a little stressed about the situation.

Until next time...

The end…. For now.

I have decided to park my blog.

Well, in as much as “park” includes still cross-posting my Instagram photos, and doing the “12 of 12” because I enjoy that.

It’s not like I’ve really blogged anything of real substance in a long, long while. Just not feeling wordy for a while, and my time seems more and more difficult to manage as of late.

I’ll still be around, and I might randomly post from time-to-time.

But for now, thank you for spending the time you’ve spent with me.

Until next time...

Hi-Fi Friday: March 10, 2017

My turn to pick the theme for the month. After two other… failed… suggestions, we agreed upon songs by Irish bands. Seems appropriate with it being March and all? But I think U2 should be left out. Since, well, U2.

Sinéad O’Controversy. But before she had that, er, title, she was well, just Sinéad. While her popularity has been somewhat lacking for the last two decades, she’s still putting out music. But I still enjoy listening to her 1990 album “I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got”.

And from that album, I give you Sinéad O’Connor’s “The Emperor’s New Clothes”:

Until next time...
