New Link Category: Horse Racing

Since Preggie got sick, I was at the Winner’s Circle off track betting, eating their pretzel bites and betting on horses. Liked the environment so much, I got a job there when Hoosier Park changed the format of the OTB site to include the Voodoo BBQ restaurant. But the story of me and horse racing…

“I will love you today and I will love you tomorrow.”

After posting up the Benny Hill clip, Preggie went to the hospital. He was sleeping for hours and I checked his oxygen. 70%. I called 911 and he was on a BiPAP machine and the folks at Parkview did everything they can to prevent him from drowning due to congestive heart failure. They also found…

Makeup Fukubukuro!!!!

DO I FEEL LUCKY, PUNK? Sometimes, I would buy a mystery bag of something. It’s hit or miss but it’s enjoyable to guess what I will get. One year, I got almond-colored caulk from the hardware store. Another time, I got 500 floppy disks (which I dropped off at the computer lab at Ivy Tech,…

The Renaissance of My Mind

Several things prompted me to update my blog, but one factor came out: My mind is more clarified and light-hearted. No, I did not attend some cultic “auditing” session. How my mind got more motivated is quotidian: my medicine is Just Right. Not only that, I eat better. It started when I was taking medicine…

Impossible Christmas Wishes

Between the merchandising work and posting snarky “trololo” pics on Facebook, it is a rare thing to maintain the blog. But I am so glad to find time now. The Christmas spirit is strong throughout the 15+ stores I visit in Indiana and Ohio. Everyday, I get to listen to holiday songs. Right now, I…

General Update for “1Q 2011”

I finally figured out how to get rid of that European spam for cheapo V|@gr@; however it meant that you cannot comment on older posts anymore. After 14 days of posting, comments will close. Now, for the rest: With the help of with my employment specialist from the regional Easter Seals, I’m working for one…

Return from Hiatus

Much has happened. Glad I have some time to write up some updates. 1) I’m now a merchandiser. It does not pay much, but the schedule’s flexible enough to attend to my Prediger’s needs. If I ever meet the guy behind Volition.com, I owe him a beer. 2) When not merchandising, I help out at…

Meh…

I’ve been more at Twitter and Facebook than this blog. For some reason, I’m more comfortable with being a twit and posting up FB updates than anything else. I’m going to ask Necessary Roughness which plug-in could post up a digest of my Twitter updates. Census work? I’m done, unless the LCO informs me otherwise.…

Long Time No Blog

It has been a while since I’ve posted something. I’m still alive and well, posting update at Facebook and shooting the breeze at Fark. Part of my absence is job-hunting, looking for gigs and full-time work. Still searching, though I’ve got temp work at the end of March. Another reason is more medical. No, it’s…

Hard Candy Interlude

Before anything else: Prayers are requested for various people. First off, for Haiti. I probably said enough on Twitter, when I was very disgusted at Pat Robertson’s “pact with the devil” comment. My Twitter feed does have a link to legit charities. If you really want to repudiate the Theology of Glory jockeys, give freely…and…

Busy busy busy…

I’m completing my final class for my AAS, a Security+ class. Was going to take a class on PHP, but figured that there is a huge glut of code monkeys looking for work. (Heard too much rumors about programmers getting laid off, especially in Portland.) Got Ubuntu installed with wireless and sound cards working, thanks…

Fark’s Revolutionary Movie List

Went to Fark for my news fix, and saw a list of music selections inspired by the revolution. I figure: how about a list of movies? Thanks to various TFers (and in advance, the Liters), here is our list of movies inspired by the revolution. Farkers, if you want to your recommendations, just leave a…

Iran Summary Available

One of the best explanations of what’s going on in Iran is written by Fark’s “Resident Jew”, Tatsuma. He has provided a dramatis personae and a timeline of current events. Shabbos is coming up, so I hope he has a pleasant rest, for he was following the whole thing all day. Read Tatsuma’s summary at:…
