I’ve got to stop paying such close attention to the news and current events. I can’t handle it. It’s accomplishing nothing but making me perpetually pissed, and it’s affecting the way I treat my wife and also others who are far less important to me. What good does it do me to pore over the comments on news stories and anger myself? I can’t make … Continue reading I will not fight.
When I’m stressing, hard, I churn out memes to help myself process the situation. Usually, they’re Star Trek related. But not always. Clearly I take COVID19 very seriously, but laughter helps chase away fear. Continue reading Some coronavirus memes

“Hi, how are you doing?” Do you really want to know the answer to that? Fuck, why do people ask that question? You don’t give a shit and you’re just asking because you’re supposed to. I don’t give a shit about how you’re doing either so why are we fucking doing this? Well, let me tell you, since you asked: I’m sick and fucking tired … Continue reading How are you doing?

I watched them sail into the sunset while I stayed behind and remained a slave to my own self-doubt.
