My Dislikes

Here is the list of my dislikes, and some of them will have reasons for why I do.

Snobby people: A big turn off, as they talk and act like their shit don’t stink. Well it does stink.
People who park their cars right across an entire crosswalk, and have no consideration for pedestrians, and the wheelchair bound.
Politicians: The ones that couldn’t give a rat’s ass about the people who put them in office, but will kiss the big banks, corporations and the oil companies asses. Also, the blow hards who make ridiculous statements, re: doing away with minimum wage, cut backs or deny food stamps for the needy.
Food: I detest lamb, big time. Can’t stand the smell of it when it is being cooked. I will turn around and walk out the door. I’ll add that it is way too greasy.
Other food added to the list: Yogurt, turnips, eggplant, black olives, and artificial sweeteners.
Sports: Watching a sporting event on TV, I don’t mind two in the booth, one doing the play-by-play, and the color man. But when there is three, then they seem to be talking over each other, and sometimes it seems to go on and on, and half time they make no sense. That does piss me off, and ready to throw a shoe at the television.
News: I hate Fox News, and most of the other network news, as it seems to have gone done the toilet. Most of it is nothing more but puff pieces, instead of real hardcore news, and not really telling the truth.
Internet trolls: Idiots who would rather slam the shit out of something a person rights, instead of posting a halfway decent comment. They’re nothing but boring people, who would praise the likes of Limbaugh, Beck, and others of their ilk.
Ads on TV: There are quite a few of them, that turn me off, as they seem to talk down to people.
Speaking of ads, I was watching the baseball game, and lo and behold, they slide ads across the screen,
last only a few seconds, and I’m wondering, do really need to have them bombarding us with ads, for almost anything that is sold on the market. Plus the stadiums with ads plastered all over the walls, and on top of the parks.
Religion: I’m not against religion, but I don’t like it rammed down my throat, and I really don’t like talking about it.

Those are some of the things in life, that I dislike. There are more, but I will leave it at that.

My Likes

Here are some of the things that I like.

Black coffee: Most of the time I like it strong. No sugar, as it does it kills the flavor.
Crosswords: On line and on paper, using a pen with black ink.
Books: Mostly novels and old literature.
TV: I’m very picky about what I watch. Old Law & Order, NCIS, Burn Notice, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Everybody Loves Raymond and Seinfeld.
Sports on TV: Baseball, college football, its more exciting than the NFL, which do watch. Also college basketball.
Happy people.
Winter and Autumn.
Walking, except when there is to much ice on the pavement.
Favorite foods: Chicken, Pasta, Pork Roast.
1% Milk.
Bottled water.
Rainy days.
Newspaper: The Boston Globe. Digital and the print editions.
Ice cream: When I’m in the mood for it.
Clothes: T shirts, sweatshirts on the loose fitting, and jeans.
Holding the door open, for both men and women.
Writing: When I get my act together, and hopefully get into a routine.

There are more things I like, but the list above, tells you a little something about me.

I will do a follow up post, concerning my dislikes.

Mature Humans

Found in the email inbox:

Mature Humans

How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before
you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or
understand a word they said?

I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of
cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front.
Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants never get
dirty, and you can wear them forever.

Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber &
dumber every year?

There’s no worse feeling than that millisecond you’re
sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a
little too far.

As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate
drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I
always hate bicyclists.

Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times
and still not know what time it is.

Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their
car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail
on the Donkey – but I’d bet my behind everyone can find and push
the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes
closed, first time, every time!

I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not
to answer when they call.

The Good Word

Another conversation between he and she.

She: Good morning.
He: Good morning, or is it a good morning.
She: I see your not in a good mood.
He: Me?
She: Yes, you.
He: Do you really want to know why I’m not in a good mood?
She: Please tell.
He: Well … I slept like shit.
She: Shit is not a good thing.
He: You got that right.
She: Since you slept as you say, like shit then that is not a good thing.
He: Correct.
She: So how I can help you to make this a good morning?
He: First off, I need a good, strong mug of black coffee.
She: That’s a good thing for you.
He: Coffee is good, and good for the soul too.
She: I’ll stick with a good cup of tea.
He: Tea is good, but I’m not a morning tea drinker.
She: I know that.
He: Good that we agree on that.
She: How’s the coffee?
He: As good as it gets.
She: Good.
He: Now that the coffee is working, it looks like it’s going to be good day.
She: I love it when you have a good day, and a good evening too.
He: A good day, makes everything right with the world.
She: I hope tonight you get a good night’s sleep.
He: I’m planning on it.
She: Good of you to say that.
He: It’s all good.

She said, He said

She said: Wake up and smell the coffee.
He said: Smells good.
She said: How can you drink it without cream/milk and/or sugar?
He said: Easy.
She said: Easy?
He said: Coffee tastes best in its natural state. Nothing added.
She said: Yuk!
He said: Have you ever really tried it drinking it black?
She said: Not really.
He said: Then you don’t know what your missing.
She said: Then I Guess I will never find out.
He said: You don’t know what your missing in life, drinking coffee, the real and only way to drink it.
She said: You remind me of the people who use a pen to do the crossword puzzle.
He said: The only I have solved the puzzles using a pen. Black ink of course.
She said: You and the color black:
He said: Newspapers and crossword puzzle books, are printed in black and white.
She said: If you make a mistake with a pencil, you use an eraser clean up, and put the correct letters/word.
He said. Using an eraser makes a mess of it, and besides, white out works wonders on covering the mistake(s) by using a pen.
She said: Smart Ass!
He said: That’s right!

I Feel Like New

I feel like a new old man today.

Got my hairs styled/cut.

Not just one hair, but a whole lot of hairs was snipped/cut off.

Still no bald spots, so that’s a good sign.

Now, if I was a barber/stylist, and someone came in and a haircut, I would would ask the person, which one strand of hair he/she wanted snipped off. It makes a lot of sense, since a person goes to have his hair cut/styled, that mucho hairs are cut/styled, not just one hair.

So, hairs cut/styled it is.

Just A Pondering thought.

Anxiety

So an ancient once said, “Accept the anxieties and difficulties of this life”. Don’t expect your practice to be clear of obstacles. Without hindrances the mind that seeks enlightenment may be burnt out. So an ancient once said, “Attain deliverance in disturbances”.

Below is an anonymous quote that I can vouch for. With this damn head cold, that is now slowly going away, I could not get my head to wrap around in responding to the comments left on the past several posts. It will be probably be a couple or more days of sporadic posting.

Be well, everyone.
