What the hell?

I haven't been here for some time. Yes a failure on my part but something brought me back. Someone posted a really nasty comment here, and to be honest, I'm not sure why?

I've been accused of "being off my meds", as well as fake my background and birthplace. I don't even think I've ever mentioned by birthplace here. I live in Calgary, but I wasn't born here.

It's one of those things which should cause outrage,I guess, but to be honest I'm more confused than anything else. I'm not even sure if I should delete the comment or not. If I delete it, will this person come back and make more nasty comments? It was quite venomous but there was no foul language.

This is quite a head scratcher.

I'd like to say that I'm sorry that I offended you, but to be honest, I'm not. However the more I think about it, the more I think this might be a case of mistaken identify.

At least it gave me an excuse to blog. Now if I could only motivate myself to blog about recent events like my trips to San Diego, and London.

Damn Fit People

I hate fit people. I hate people who think they’re so fit that they have to run up and down stairs all morning. Their existence just annoys the piss out of me.
Last Friday (Good Friday), I woke up and early, but had nothing to do, and then I was reminded how my blog has been annoying me lately, by the lack of style. I’m not sure why this is why I haven’t blogged in some time, but bottom line, I didn’t like it. So I decided that I would go out and get a few pictures of the Calgary Skyline, and use one of them as a banner for my blog.
I head out with my camera and grab a bus that heading across the river. It’s a quick trip and I’m not happy with where I end up. I get some shots, but I’m not happy, but there is a path, so I decided to walk along the path to see if I can get some better shots, and the end result is now seen at the top of the page; though I’m still not happy with the end result.
During my walk, I kept stopping to take pictures and noticed joggers running past me. Now these people didn’t bother me because they were going somewhere. This changed when I got to the a large stairway.
When I got to the stairway, there were people running up and down the stairway over and over again. These were the people who were pissing me off. Do people really need to have to run back up and down the same set of stairs over and over again? These people were taking the “Look at me, I’m healthy and fit thing”, too far.

Seriously, what is the point of people running up and down the same set of stairs over and over again? It’s these people who I wish would get run down by someone in a big truck, while smoking 3 and ½ packs a day, or better yet, while eating a Big Mac. If you want to job to be healthy; fine. Just don’t run up and down the same frigging set of stairs over and over again.

I wish I had went to McDonalds before I ended up on this stairway, because I would have loved standing there, eating a Quarter Pounder, large fries and a Coke while they ran past me, just to piss people off. The problem is that even i won’t eat that stuff, not since the Hepatitis shots I had to get for going to McDonalds a few years ago.

If you want to be healthy and fit, I don’t have a problem with that, just don’t run up and down the same set of stairs. You might as well get a giant hamster wheel. It’s the same friggn thing.

Why I can’t maintain my blog? I blame The Onion

Bottom line, is I don’t know. I seem to want to be spend most of my free time wasting it as of late. Not sure if it’s a lack of motivation, or just sheer laziness. I’ll think it’s a combination of both to be honest.

Then again, life has become incredibly boring as of late. It’s the same old crap, day in and day out. It’s sad when the exciting thing of your week is steak for lunch on Wednesday.  Life is just boring as hell and I need to challenge myself again, however I do not see that happening until at least late 2012, or early 2013.

I could blog about the videogames that I’m playing but I’ll spare you the horror of that. I knew this guy who would only talk about the TV show Night Court. It drove me crazy, and then one day I tried to steer the conversation somewhere else. He then told me he didn’t care and went right back to talking about Night Court. I then called him a jackass and walked away. He never did figure out what he did wrong. So I won’t bore you about my videogame crap.

The scary thing is that I really have NOTHING going on. I’m planning on doing my taxes this weekend, and that’s about it. I just work 2 jobs, and put money away for my 2 trips. I’ve been called out by the lovely Vics for my lack of blogging, but again, what else is there? I know what I need to do, go back to the old formula of finding strange news on the internet and blog about it, but at this point, I think The Onion has me beat in that area, DAMN YOU ONION FOR STEALING MY ENERGY.

I love The Onion and wish I could write for The Onion, but alas, I always feel less than myself after reading about the insane stuff they write about. I’m not as twisted as I thought I was. DAMN YOU ONION.

Ok I bought a plane ticket, and I'm gonna meet Max Headroom, but neither are related

I bought my plane ticket for San Diego today. Well, bought might not be the right word since I used most of my airmiles and only had to pay for the fees and crap. I just hope I don't get slammed with an additional $5.50 because Obama is trying find get more ways to deal with the fiscal crisis in the US.

It's actually a smart idea, from his perspective. He's taxing foreigners to enter the country. It's extra cash and no US citizen is hurt by this. I, on the other hand am not impressed. On top of all the other crap, I pay when flying, like fuel fee's airport improvement fee's security fees, it frigging adds up. It added up at $184 dollars, in just fees. Now Obama wants to make me pay other $5.50? 

I can't actually get mad at this for some reason. It's not a bad idea even if I'm the one who's going to get stuck with it. I just hope its put in the airline ticket instead of someone from the border asking me for money. That will suck.

Also, I noticed on a poster for the local Con that Matt Frewer is going to be attending, which I think is really cool. I loved the Max Headroom, the TV show. I actually liked Matt as the Edison Carter character, so I'm really looking forward to seeing him. I've seen him in The Watchemen as well as the TV show Eureka. Oh and he's CANADIAN !!!! WOOT.

I'm not feeling the creativity right now, because I'm trying to figure out why a Facebook/Blogger friend is wearing a crusty shirt and how 4 pies in the fridge has anything to do with this. 

I'll try again tomorrow.

Random Thoughts

I'm winging it again. UH OH, I'm winging it again, UH OH.

Yes I have nothing again. Sure I can blog about the recent events in Egypt, but it's not like I'm there. Besides that's not why the 1 or 2 of you visit my site for, is it? Insightful political discussion? I doubt it.

I realize that I need to book a hotel soon for San Diego, but I don't have much money right now. That will change in a few weeks, when I put back the last of the money I borrowed for a new couch, I'll be able to book a hotel room.

The thing is out of all the friends who managed to get Comic Con tickets, I'm the only one. No one else managed to pull it off. However tickets may become available as people return them. I'm not planning to return mine. Even if I'm the only one in my group going. I will go. I'm seriously looking forward to this trip.

.....

There are times, I really wonder about humanity. Are we good people or just selfish bastards? I know that we should give back, how these days it doesn't seem possible when only a few people have the money and the rest of us are just struggling. Should I be spending money to go to London and San Diego? Should I be using my extra cash to help out people less fortunate than me. I have goals, but where I hear about friends who are not doing as well, I feel guilty, but I also feel like saying...WHAT ABOUT ME?

I made many sacrifices to get where I am today. Admittedly I'm not living in the lap of luxury, but I'm not living in a cardboard box either. Life is short, but for some people its even shorter, and sometimes harsher.

I wish I could win a lot of money in the lottery, so that I can go help these people. Online friends who are going through a lot of crap. I went through similar crap, but I did make it through. I'm just not sure if my friends will manage the same thing. Not with one of them dying. He's dying and it seems like no one wants to help him. I don't get it. I'm not sure what to do, but I need to do something. When a doctor tells you, that you cannot work, and are labeled disabled and you still cannot get any benefits, there is something really really wrong with the world. I want to fix this, but I don't know how. I did promise that I will do something, and I will do something. I'm not sure what. I'm scared for him.

.....

When I die, how will I be judge? Better than others, I hope. I've had a lot of nice things said about me, by people who have never seen me. I've even had nice things said about me by people who have seen me. The thing is I keep everyone at arms length. I just expect people to treat me like crap for some reason.

I was picked on a lot in school. School was basically a living hell for me, and being the misfit. I did have some friends, but let me put it this way. When you hear about kids to snap and go to school with a gun and start shooting, I can relate to them. However my respect for human life would never allow me to do such a horrible action. Thing thing is, when people say, "how could he do something like that"? I know why.
