Lack of Entries

I haven’t written much lately because I have been dealing with another death in the family. This time my grandmother passed away. Her death was sudden and unexpected. Yes, she had Alzheimer’s. Yes, she had medical problems. However, there was no indication of her passing away when she did.

What happened was this: She was having a bout of confusion, so she went to the hospital. The doctor after examing her felt that it could have been due to some new medication she had been put on. He was going to keep her for a few days just to make sure everything was ok. On her 2nd day, she was having trouble swallowing and wasn’t being very responsive. She passed away that night.

It went from “It’s her medications”, to “I’m sorry. She didn’t pull through”. This upsets me on so many levels. My grandma and I had become very close in the last 3 years since my mother passed away. We were always close, but in the last 3 years we talked every day, and sometimes twice a day. She was like another mother to me. It hurt a lot when she passed away, and it still does. It’s like losing my mom all over again.

Since my grandma has passed away I haven’t had much interest in writing blog entries, playing games or even watching TV really. So, obviously, the blog has taken a backseat for awhile. Hopefully, soon I will be in a mood to write some entries soon.

I just wanted to let you all know the situation in case any of you noticed I had vanished from the blogosphere and assumed I had been abducted by the government.

So, the other day I was talking to a friend who happens to be a Trump supporter. He started talking about Muslims, and how we need to get them out of the country and keep them out. Then he went on to criticize Liberals and their “Tolerance” of Muslims, saying that if they love them so much that they (The Liberals) are traitors to the country and should leave and go to the middle east!

This whole discussion pissed me off, but I bit my tongue and kept quiet. Why? Because when it comes to friends and family I don’t talk politics or religion. I refuse to allow Trump to tear my world apart! Still, it pissed me off! He’s not the first person I have heard make that comment or one similar to it either. Where do Republicans/Conservatives get off telling us to leave the country?

You know what? You know why I’m not leaving the country to go to the middle east? Because I love America! I love everything about this country! Especially the rights and freedoms that this country was built on! Including the right to freedom of religion! This right allows for Christians, Muslims, Atheists or even Pastafarians to believe what they want! I love the country and the freedoms it gives! I love the country just the way it is, and the way it always has been! It’s the Republican Conservatives who are trying to change it into something it was never meant to be! It’s THEM who hates what the country stands for…So, maybe take a bit of your own damn advice…If you don’t like the country or the rights that it provides, then get the fuck out! There’s plenty of other countries out there that strip their citizens of religious rights!

Hell, North Korea has almost a non-existent Muslim community! So, get your bags packed and don’t let lady liberty’s foot kick your ass on the way out. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_in_Korea

Did Ya Miss Me?!?!

Posted: February 16, 2017 in All about ME!

Surprise! I am back! Sorry about my long leave of absence. I have not been well, but I am a bit better now! I know, it’s been ages! A lot has changed too! Tons of video games came out! We had Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. My house almost caught fire…..TWICE! I’ve gotten rid of Cable TV….and….I think that’s it! Still, that’s a lot of chan…oh! Wait, Trump became president and turned America into a crazy conspiracy filled dystopian based Science Fiction movie!

It’s crazy! I mean, I was against Trump from the start, but I didn’t think it would turn out this bad! Only Nixon had it worse, and it took him years to get there! Trump has succeeded in catching up in less than a month! I really don’t think Trump will finish out his term if he continues down the road he’s going down. He’s going to eventually have to start acting like a president, or get impeached.

Personally, I would rather have Pence has a president, so I am rooting for his impeachment. I mean, Trump doesn’t know what he’s doing! It’s not surprising, since he has zero experience! Government can’t be run like a business. If it could, Richard Branson would be the British Prime Minister! Bill Gates would have already ran for president.

If Trump was serious about running for president,  and actually cared about the country as opposed to only caring about the all mighty dollar and how it will affect his businesses, he would have first run for mayor of New York. Start somewhere, and get a feel for how Government works! Don’t just go; “Meh! I think I’ll paint my face orange today and try to run the whole country….how hard could it be?!?”

Don’t get me wrong! I was against Hillary Clinton as well, and if she had won, I would be complaining about her and wondering if Trump could have done a better job. However! After seeing the mess that is Trumps America? I am pretty confident that Clinton would have done less damage. She would have still done damage, but it could be easily fixed. The damage from Trump? I think most of that is going to scar!

Today while enjoying my weekend and catching up on episodes of Lucifer, I was startled when there came a pounding at my front door. Not a knock mind you, but an actual pounding. A pounding so loud, that I half expected the door to come flying off the hinge. I’m not sure who was startled more, me or my dog. Either way, she behaved as a dog does and went apeshit! I rushed to the door, about ready to bitch out some Jehovah witnesses or something, and find a police officer standing there staring at me.

I looked past the officer to the street, and there were not 1, not 2, but 3 squad cars. When I saw that, I had all kinds of thoughts race through my head. The first thought was that something terrible had happened in the family. However the officer quickly put that fear to rest, by informing me that a neighbor hadn’t seen me for a few days and was worried, so he/she called the police to check on me. He asked if I was ok, and if I was sure that I was ok. I informed him that I was in fact perfectly fine, and so he said goodbye and left.

The thing is, I am an antisocial person. I know my neighbors, but it’s not like I talk to them. We aren’t friends, it’s not like we hold annual block parties. If you asked me any of my neighbors names, I couldn’t tell you! I have nick names for them, so that if I have to mention them to friends for some reason, they know who I am talking about. So, there’s no reason for anyone to be particularly concerned about me.

Now, if it was a family member, or friend who called? I would understand that! Friends and family tend to either talk to me, see me, or see me post on Facebook on a daily basis. If I go 3 or so days and none of them have heard from me? Yea, odds are I am dead! But neighbors?

The thing is, I am outside all the time! I take my dog out several times a day, I go out and check my mail. I leave in the morning, and come home in the early evening. I am literally outside, more than I am inside. Apparently though I am not outside at the exact same moment as my neighbor I guess, and that’s a reason to call the cops? Seriously?

Look, if you are genuinely concerned, that’s great! I’m even a bit thankful I guess. However, if you are really concerned, come over and knock on my door, then ask if I am ok. No need to have the cops come kick my door down. I don’t have anything against the police, but I have a pit bull. If cops are coming in my yard, when I am not expecting it, for no reason what ever really, there’s a chance my dog might run out of the yard. Worse yet, with her being a pit bull she could startle the officer, and end up getting shot. For what? Cause a neighbor didn’t see me outside for a day or two and didn’t want to be bothered coming over themselves?

So, I guess from now on I need to go door to door every few days, and say “Hi! Still alive!” just to avoid having the local swat team kick my door down. It’s just stupid, and yes I am pissed off. Also, why the hell did they need to bring three squad cars down here to check on my safety? Did the neighbor tell them that I was being held hostage by Hans Gruber or something? I think three cars a a bit of an overkill if you ask me!

The other day the unthinkable occurred! My washing machine broke down! This is a horrible time of year for things to break down, yet it always seems like if somethings going to break, it happens around Christmas. Why? Because Christmas hates me, that’s why!

Anyway, as I was saying! My Washing machine broke down, and because I put things off to the very last minute, all my clothes were dirty. I couldn’t very well go to a laundromat wearing dirty stinky clothes! I was running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off! What was I going to do? I can’t go wash clothes without clean clothes…and I can’t get clean clothes without washing my clothes! It was quite a paradox!

After I calmed down a moment, a thought struck me from out of the blue(that totally just reminded me of that song “Believe it or not“)..Washing Machines are a relatively new invention! They were only invented in the 1850’s, what did people do BEFORE then?? They washed them by hand of course! I could do that! Of course, I wasn’t alive in the 1800’s, so I wasn’t sure what the proper way to do clothes washing by hand…you know, other than what I saw being done on the first season of Walking Dead, so I googled it!

After reading up on how it’s done PROPERLY I did it myself, and they came out smelling and looking nicer and cleaner than when I machine washed them. However, I am old and not in very good condition, so afterwards my arms, and back were killing me…they still are killing me actually. Still, at least I had clean clothes now! So, there’s that!

Sleep is for the Weak

WWS-InsomniaI have this annoying problem! I’m not sure if it’s common or not, but I am unable to go to sleep if I have to wake up at a certain time the next day. It doesn’t matter if I have to be up at 7 in the morning or 12 o’clock in the afternoon! If I am expected to be awake at a certain time, I can’t sleep! It’s like my body is trying to mess with me! It knows I have things to do, so it makes sure I am tired, run down and on the verge of passing out.

Don’t get me wrong! I do get tired! In fact I get so sleepy my eyes burn, and I am swamped with headaches that brings me to the verge of tears. Yet I just lay there, tossing and turning. Forcing my eyes closed, hoping they will stay closed. They never do though! They never do!

I wouldn’t say I suffer from Insomnia, because it’s not a regular occurrence. In fact, if I have no plans the next day I can fall asleep on command! No problem at all. So, not Insomnia in my opinion. Just my body being a jerk to me!

Why would my body do that you ask? Because it’s an asshole! That’s why! My body hates me, and wants to make me as miserable as possible!

 

My Friend The Dog

Black lab hi-res

Black lab hi-res (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

As I mentioned in my last entry, I have a dog now. She’s not just any dog though! She’s the bestest dog in all the land! She’s part Pit bull, and part Black Lab and all adorable. When I look at her, I wanna peench her cheeks and start talking baby talk to her. Is that weird? That’s weird right?

Anyway! She’s wonderful and adorable and is highly intelligent. She knows how to sit, eat, shake, eat, lay down, come here, eat, give kisses, speak and eat…All on command! Impressive right? Hell to the yeah it is! She’s actually a really good companion, despite not being much of a conversationalist. In fact, I have decided to write an original poem about her right here and now.

Let me begin…Ahem! *Clears throat*

I got a new friend,
and she’s my new dog.
She’s not all wooden,
Like some worn log.
She’s not all slimy,
like a gross frog.
She’s covered in fur,
because she’s a dog.
Though there are times,
When she eats like a hog.
But when all is said and done,
she’s still just a dog.

Thank you to all my adoring fans! For those interested in purchasing a copy of this poem, one can be made available to you for a mere $500.00!
