It seems that the drugs I’m currently on make me excessively chatty. That, coupled with being largely immobile post-stone passage means that I’m vomiting up all these lengthy comments on other people’s blogs and Facebook Status Updates. I’m starting to feel like a loonball.
What’s even worse is that now that we’ve hit the weekend nobody is writing blog posts or status updates and so I have nowhere to be chatty. Hence a rare Sunday blog entry filled with babblenalia.
–Amazon Prime has finally lured me in for another trial period. I’m not sure how I feel about giving them $79 to read free books. Isn’t that really just paying for the books in another way? Oh well, now I can get my colouring books and dog supplies in two days instead of five. I guess there’s that.
–Any more word on whether or not Amazon will be including the onerous TN Sales Tax in our orders once they open up here? I hope not. Honestly a lot of the things I buy on there are gifts for people out of state. I’ll pay Sales Tax on anything I use here, but I’m not fan of being taxed for products that are made elsewhere and used elsewhere.
–I feel a big blog post coming on for later in the week about Backyard Homesteading.
–Tennessee, I’ll tell you right now that I’m going to do everything in my power to MAKE SURE you don’t start allowing credit card payments for lottery tickets. I’m already only grudgingly accepting of the State running a game of chance. Now that they’re actively trying to add to the enormous debt burden while encouraging utterly irresponsible spending I’ve had enough. All this tommyrot about the money going for scholarships doesn’t cut it. Openly encouraging debt and vice to give a handful of kids $500-$1500 for school is reprehensible.
–Anyone who tells you that kidney stones don’t hurt once they’ve passed is splitting hairs. Yes, the stones themselves don’t hurt you anymore. They’re gone. But that’s sort of like saying that a bullet stops hurting once it’s removed. You still have wounds that are tender and painful. With as many as I’ve passed in the last six months I now spend 2-3 days post-passage unable to walk up and down stairs without tears and grimaces. Kind of silly.
–If you watch “Fringe”, are you as disappointed as I am right now? The heart of the show was always Peter’s relationship with Walter and the writers have killed that with all this current nonsense.
–I had another thing i really wanted to put here, but by the time I’ve worked my way through the other topics it’s just—–gone. I’m not a fan of this thing my aging mind is starting to do. Thoughts are fireflies, lighting up and then going dark to flit away once I get close enough to catch them. Occasionally they’ll light up on the other side of the yard but then I’ll be too far away for catching them to matter anymore.
