0.) Happy Constitution Day!!!
1.) There has been a disturbance in The Force as of late...
reasons I still don't fully understand, I have been a lot more attracted
to blondes these past 2 weeks than usual. I suspect this has something
to do with 2 hot blonde actresses that I like (i.e. Jennifer Lawrence
and Melissa Benoist, the actress that plays the lead role in Supergirl) and that cute
little 24 year-old nursing student that's my usual trainer at the gym.
2.) Make no mistake though, I am still just as obsessed with Redheads as
ever. If Leanna Decker came to me and begged me to make her a happy wife
and mother, I wouldn't say no. ;)
3.) I recently
started a new job as a daily claims adjuster for an Independent Adjuster
firm that I worked for in the past. So far, I'm just handling claims
that people make against the local electric company. Most of them are
easy denials but, I still give them full consideration. That way, when
the claimant gets the denial, they can't say that I didn't even try to
be fair to them.
I sure do hope this job goes well. I'm tired of being only sporadically employed and CONSTANTLY struggling to pay the bills...
Also, this job keeps me here at home. I don't just mean New Orleans I mean at home, handling the claims over the phone and internet with a laptop the company gave me. That ought to significantly cut down on my travel costs... :P
Why is Firefox being such a crackhead? Am I going to have to get a new
browser that DOESN'T suddenly take up all the system resources and
freeze? Who cares if I have 20 tabs open (with most of them being
YouTube videos) it should NOT be crashing in this modern age of superior
open-source programming... *smh*
5.) No, I am not
switching to Chrome. Google always wants me to sign into that shit and
it is often just as much of a memory hog as Firefox. Sometimes much more
depending on how many tabs you have open at once.*
Chrome has each tab run as its own process in Windows. This was meant
to keep the whole browser from crashing if one freezes up for some
reason. It doesn't always work well.
6.) I wonder if
Opera would be worthwhile as a new main browser? Is it even still
around? I know Nintendo uses Opera software for the web browsers in the
Wii, Wii U and 3DS platforms. Would that be enough to keep them alive?
7.) Adobe Flash sucks. It should be replaced with HTML5 by ANYONE running an active website. I have spoken.
8.) I found an interesting article via Facebook tonight. It's about a Battalion commander getting removed for violating the Sexual Harassment and Equal Opportunity regulations.
investigation found Higgins committed multiple violations of the Army’s
Sexual Harassment and Equal Opportunity regulations and policies,
created a hostile work environment, and failed to treat subordinates
with dignity and respect, according to the statement from the 1st
Officials from the 1st Armored Division later
clarified that the Sexual Harassment policy violations cited in the
investigation stemmed from inappropriate comments that created a hostile
work environment, and there were no allegations of any inappropriate
So, an old-school officer makes a few sex jokes and he gets fired... Okay...
I could swear that I've read about this dude somewhere before, years ago
while I was still in the Army. The piece was essentially a biography of
the guy in question, saying he was one of the most aggressive
commanders we had in Afghanistan.
So, what really
happened? Were the comments really that bad or is this a case of
Political Correctness running amok? Either way, I think we are not being
told the whole story.
9.) Found out that the new Star Trek show is being delayed until May.
not upset by this delay at all. It will give them a chance to create a
MUCH better product than what I've seen so far. Also, they didn't even
have more than 3 or 4 scripts finished as of
August. Getting a season's worth of episodes done in just 4 months would
have been next to impossible.
10.) Haven't seen or heard anything out of that stalking shitbag in a while. I guess he got the message and took it to heart. Good for him.
Speaking of Gingers that supposedly lack souls... I was thinking about
the little red-haired girl from Korea again a few weeks ago. I have come
to the conclusion that she was not in her right mind back in those
days. Don't know if she got any better since I left her behind 5 years
ago now but, I sure hope she did. Otherwise, her life is really going to
suck in so many different ways.
12.) About talking
point number 1... I recently watched all 20 episodes of the new
Supergirl series on Netflix. I'm glad it's being renewed for a second
season. I hope being moved from CBS to The CW doesn't kill its ratings
like changes in time slot often kill a show's ratings.
Bible Study started at church again this past Tuesday, this time
studying the Acts of the Apostles. (Often referred to as 'the Book of
Acts'). Straight away, it's proven insightful by explaining what
'Witnessing' actually meant.
It's definitely not the
proselytizing, bible-thumping insanity from various religious fanatics
that only drive people away from God. It's just answering questions
about God, Jesus, the Bible, et al. whenever someone asks you about the
subject. So, it's looks like I was witnessing many times over the years
without ever being aware of the fact. Forget about mysterious ways,
sometimes God works in some really low-key, seemingly sneaky ways. It's
just a subliminal form of word-of-mouth advertising... How
14.) Why do the local Rock stations insist on cutting out about 15-30 seconds from the Ozzy Osbourne song No more tears?
Even worse, why does it have to be from Zakk Wylde's guitar solo?! That
is fucking BULLSHIT!!! Even the video on Ozzy's official YouTube page
does it... Whisky Tango Foxtrot?!
15.) Ya know what else is awesome about working from home most of the time? I now have a LOT more free time. Unlike those damned call centers, I'm only expected to work 40 hours a week most of the time, as opposed to 60 hours. I can finally play video games on a regular basis again! Awesome!!! :)
That's all for now...
