Random News/Ain’t It Thoughts: Week of November 11th, 2011…

This gallery contains 1 photos.

I know this is the first Random Whatever/ Ain’t It Whatever in a while but I had some thoughts that I needed to get out of head. Herman Cain’s sausage, Rick Perry’s stupidity, and Joe Paterno dominated the news. The time change is again screwing with me and I’m just wringing my hands until it’s time to clock out tonight so I can enjoy some premium malt liquor and a fried double down. Continue reading

“I’m Good…”

Pardon me for my lack of blogginess over the last few weeks. I’ve had some things going on and I just wasn’t feeling it.

About two weeks ago I took a few days off in the middle of the work week to head home to the woods to see my family, more specifically my mother who is still fighting cancer’s b**ch-a**.

I can receive texts and e-mails when I’m at my parents but phone calls aren’t going to happen because I’m not falling for the additional roaming charges swindle. Just before I got home I get a text from my friend Harry, whose issues with mental health and homelessness I chronicled a while ago Continue reading
