7:54 p.m. When I’m happy, I’m really fun. It’s the reason people keep me around. Sure I go dark a few days every month but I mostly keep to myself and try not to take it out on anyone. We are all carrying around our daily battles and our lifelong battle wounds. But when I’m…

8:08 a.m. I slept well again last night. This could be it. The thing I’ve been waiting for. Sleep is my nemesis and if I start wracking up these peaceful nights with deep rest I think it’s going to change my whole life. I did also think about the different reasons I could use for…

8:35 a.m. I am so dizzy this morning. Last night I could have fainted. I experienced my first food dream. Of course, it was nachos. Thousands of them. And every dip you could imagine. Melted cheese, salsa, guacamole. There were dips hanging from the walls and entire tables made of cheese. It was a glorious…

8:10 a.m. Woody won’t come out and say it but I know he’s pissed he didn’t get a pic up on the blog yesterday. We were starving before bed last night. I started in on a snacking forage and Alexis followed. We were eating food like raccoons. I licked the remains of a squeezed lemon…

8:30 a.m. You might be wondering what I’m doing up so early. Well, Alexis has to work. Which is a bummer because she really wanted to go to the Women’s March downtown. So I am going in her place. Also, someone needs to protect these people that have probably never thrown a punch in their…

9:59 a.m. Alexis is crying. America has just inaugurated its 45th president. I’m afraid to even open up the internet today. We are talking ourselves into being able to watch his speech. I’d rather be kicked in the balls by a mule. It’s raining again though, which is fitting. I took a long walk this…

9:20 a.m. Our back room scored its second victory in as many weeks last night when we sold the IKEA daybed we had disassembled in there. Woody has a stick in the house. You never really know what it is that he’s chewing on. I let him bring stuff in from outside because I like…

I’m sure you’ve engaged in many political arguments lately. — I am writing this as a letter to myself – the angry man who spends hours fighting with his own family and strangers online about their stance on healthcare, civil rights, and what it means to be an American. I’m not a psychologist or a…

There is no reason for this photo other than to soften you before you begin reading. 9:28 a.m. 2/3. 66% The big 2-0. They have some healthcare in California that makes certain things free. For example, men can see a doctor for free for anything that has to do with their genitals. I consider genitals…

6:15 a.m. I hate people who drive motorcycles through residential neighborhoods at 5:30 in the morning as fast as they can. First of all – how are you not cold, bro? You only have a hoodie on. Secondly – if the handlebars are above your shoulders what are the implications for blood circulation on a…
