Also, I was amused that I took those pictures while on the corner of Trinity and Oppenheimer.
Olivia got out of the car and immediately said “Hot out here.” That’s also what she said when we first walked out of the airport in ABQ. (But when we landed, she threw her arms in the air and said, “Albuquerque, yay!”
I suggested to Melissa while we were in Santa Fe that she could stop in and ask GRRM why he insists on killing everyone.
I have a love/hate relationship with this city.
One of the things I hate about it is the smell of patchouli and B.O.
I’m sure there are opinions (a few positive and most negative) about Disney owning Marvel, but Olivia has decided that she’s excited about Iron Man and Pie-man teaming up with Perry the Platypus. (Hulk and Thor, she seemed less enthusiastic about.)
I have seen ads several times recently showing that LL Cool J, Ice Cube, Public Enemy and De La Soul will all be performing a concert together at a local casino. I really don’t know what to make of this other than that I’m pretty sure it means I’m old.
Oh, and that I don’t think we’re allowed to refer to this concert as a “comeback.”
If there was not an option involving vomiting mom’s spaghetti onto a sweater, I don’t know how this could be a valid poll question.
So, on Facebook, Melissa’s account keeps liking the NFL page. She’ll unlike it, only to find that a day or two later she’s getting their stories on her news feed again, and it’s listed as something she has “liked”. It drives her insane that it keeps coming back again and again. I swear I’m not gaslighting her, but if Facebook ever fixes the problem, I might have to start because it’s pretty hilarious…to me.
It seems that if you put a word in “quotes” in a tag, it gets pulled out of that tag and becomes a new one.
That’s the number of years Melissa and I have been married as of today.
And with Mother’s Day, Melissa’s birthday and our anniversary all falling in May, it’s also a very low estimate of the number of times I wanted to puke while reading cards at the store in the past month. Is it really that hard to find a card that isn’t sickening and says something simple like “You tolerate me” or “I hate everything, but I don’t hate you” or even “I find myself less awful because you’re around”? Sure the wording may need some polishing, but there’s money to be made there.
Sometimes, I’ll see someone start a discussion about a political topic online and realize that there might be some interesting drama.
Reality sets in not long after that, and I begin calling myself an idiot for even starting to read.
Seeing people argue the same tired points over and over because everyone knows that their viewpoint is the only one that matters. I don’t even know how to try to discuss things at that point.
And no conversation would be complete without the leaping to conclusions that no rational person could possibly reach.
but for some of the more impressive logical leaps also a little
Sure, somewhere in there, someone probably actually made a valid point, but since we’re on the internet and it’s politics, they stopped being civil long ago.
And we conclude with me back to blaming myself for ever reading it. I knew what I was getting into.
