Grand Unification Theory

Thoughts and Ramblings in this Twenty-First Century Broken World

Here we go again.....

Where have all the (fill in the blank) gone.

The world gets more and more crazy.  A billionaire egomanic and the dumbest brain surgeon known are the current GOP presidential front runners.  The newest "get the internet up in arms" stupidity of the day involves red coffee cups.

Yet it's still a wonderful time to live in.  Marriage equality is the law of the land.  The economy is better and better.  Unemployment is at historic lows.  The days are shorter as we head towards the shortest day of the year.

I have all three cats on my lap and a full belly.  Although we all complain, things could be worse.

Summertime, and the living is.....

As 2014 meets it's halfway point and I start another week of staycation, I wonder what it means to be happy.  I know I am not sad nor melancholy nor moody, but am I happy? What do I need to be happy? I am content most of the time.  Of that I can be certain.  I know I have moments of happiness: laughing over something on the internet, having dinner with a friend, or even watching tv with a cat or two on my lap.  But does this mean I am happy?  Some days are harder than others, and some days slip by without too much drama or strife and that's a good thing.  Maybe I need to figure out the things that'll make me happy and do more of them.  A much harder task than it at first seems because most of the things that DO NOT make me happy are necessities of life.  Mmmmmm.  Summertime, and yes I think the living, during most times, IS easy....

Days and nights.

Mondays have many songs and tributes to it.  So does Wednesday and Friday.  What about Tuesday though?  It's not Monday, and it's one day closer to the traditional weekend.  There is Tuesday Weld.  Where does she fit into this musing?  Not sure but happy Tuesday to you all.  And by the was did you see that shitty snow all over northeast ohio this morning.  Only five weeks to winter!

Since I have no computer and only an iPad since my house was broken into a few years ago, I am not sure how long any new post will be but I want to give this thing a shot again.

Last night I had a somewhat surreal experience.  Imagine a scene from the dining room of the hotel in Twin Peaks had a karaoke night with the cast if the big chill brought into 2013.

The log lady sans log sang "Genie in a Bottle."

All we were missing was a dancing little person talking backwards.

But there was a woman with a tambourine and me singing ABBA.

Overall a good night,

New Start

Several of my friends have begun to blog again due to major events in their lives.  One friend had a baby and another lost his father.  If you have read any of my previous posts you know that many entries dealt with the problems that I have doing this on a constant basis.  As I get older and continue to become more fixed in my ways, I need to find ways to keep from becoming the hermit that I SO easily could become.  This blog for me is one small part of that plan.

I have spent much of the summer (OK a few days) painting at both my parent's house and mine.  I have to admit I really like painting walls because of the almost instant gratification you get and how good even a bad paint job can look (Not that I complete bad paint jobs).  Besides these small changes in my surroundings, for the last year having been quiet, there have been many other changes.  My cat of many years Katie died last year and right before she had passed I had brought a 3rd cat into my home who as it turns out has his own medical problems.  I received a much deserved promotion at work.  We hired 2 new fellows to my team at work and even tomorrow we all move to new desks.  Throughout these small changes, those around me swirled with what seems like constant problems of one kind or another.  While not a religious person I do say a small thanks to whomever keeps me out of that swirl.

Facebook has become quite a fascination as I find and connect with people from all parts of my life and family.  I  think this is a good thing and has also re-whetted my appetite for genealogy.

So long story short, I should have much to share with people on this blog and will once again strive to keep it updated.

Holidays, Holidaze.

Today is Thanksgiving, however we are doing the actual Thanksgiving thing in 2 days on Saturday.

I have begun to think more about blogging and have several ideas and maybe even series of topics to cover.

So please come back fair readers and I will see what I can do to bring a little more murkiness into your life... LOL

Last year at this time I was preparing to head to Vegas to bring in my 40th B-day, I did a nice job of reporting from Vegas daily.... let's see if I can find that excitment again.
