Random Thoughts

It's amazing how people become and are friends, demonstrating the nuances and peculiarities of our inherent social nature. Everyone has their circles too, each with stories and each telling the same stories as everyone else's circles. This being the case, why then can't we all get along better? Do circles inherently fear the infiltration of other circles, despite the similarities?

Things that rekindle my anger upon reflection:

  • Don Denkinger & Game 6 of the 1985 World Series.
  • Jethro Tull winning a Grammy over Metallica for "Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Vocal or Instrumental" in 1989.
  • Walnut Grove being blown up & St. Elsewhere being made up.
  • Scott Stevens "compensatory" trade from the St. Louis Blues to the New Jersey Devils in 1991.
  • Re-election of Barack Obama. (Didn't fool me the first time. Twice? The Who have a song about not being fooled again.)

Cinnamon is everywhere & in everything, especially during the autumn/winter seasons. I hate Cinnamon - the smell, the taste. Yuck. It reminds me of bad, stale incense, if there is such a difference. (You the cheap stuff you buy as a college student on a budget looking to mask your dorm room pot smoking. Hypothetically speaking.)

What is with people interrupting & getting ahead of a story by interjecting their assumptions before a person is finished telling it? It's annoying, & these people need to be stopped.

When did a trip to the eye doctor become such a hassling terror? We've gone from simply reading an eye chart to having our eyeballs bombarded with probing lights, stress tests & "dilation" fluids...that prevent the ability to see anything ALL DAY. I just want to renew my prescription, not feel like aliens have probed me.

It would be refreshing if people were as fired up about real issues as much as they are about absolute nonsense. Then again, it would be relieving if others would chill & calm down with their nonsense when discussing real issues.

If you can't drive it, don't buy it. This is especially true in parking lots, where the concept of dimensions, depth & distance seem lost on some people as they painfully creep in & out of parking spaces.

Scientists recently stated that the Earth would leave the Sun's "habitable zone" in about 1.75 billion years. If you've kept up on current events the last century or so, seems humanity left the habitable zone a long time ago.

It's not that I think I'm better than most people & the rules don't apply to me; it's that I know I'm better than most people & the rules don't apply to me.

Realize the providence that guides our choices, even if you don't believe. Or don't want to believe. Yet, every choice we make is in fact a leap of faith, the confidence that we have chosen wisely...& that itself can be divine.
