Rejected Instant Lottery Names

Rejected Instant Lottery Names

  Instant lottery games, or ‘scratch-offs,’ are always brightly-colored tickets with cute, catchy names. You’ve seen them…’Double Doubler’, ‘Treasure Hunt’, ‘Holiday Cash’, ‘Cash Blowout’, ‘Money Explosion’ and the list goes on and on. Well I’m here to say not all instant ticket games are so cute & catchy. In fact, here’s a list of some …

Brain Drain #27

Brain Drain #27

  Welcome to Brain Drain, the long-running bit where I let loose of things that disturb me. As you may have noticed, this is the 27th edition, and the first since “Brain Drain #26” in February. So either I am numb from annoyances…or nothing has happened in the world since then. (I wish that were …

My View

My View

  My view is small, simple and low-profile. I don’t need much.  Certainly nothing fancy.  Save the frills for someone else.   With this perspective I have always preferred vehicles on the smaller side. And my current ride fits me like a well-tailored suit. Problem is, over the last few years, I have begun to …

Bird On A Wire

Bird On A Wire

  I am thankful–thankful I’m not a bird. That’s right, a bird’s life is NOT for me. Oh it looks inviting from outside–winters in warmer weather, having the bone structure of a runway model & shitting wherever you want. But I am not that superficial.   I think there is more to life than sitting …

Postal Boogers

Postal Boogers

  Enjoy this old, old My Odd Sock from 2013.  It is so yucky it deserves a 2nd look!  (New stuff coming soon!)     We’re in a sticky situation here. One from which we need to wash our hands of the problem. (And use anti-bacterial lotion if available.)       You see, we …

World’s Smallest

World’s Smallest

  “World’s Smallest” is a phrase thrown around with great regularity. You will often see pictures of the world’s smallest Pekinese or world’s smallest bicycle. Lots of stuff hawked on TV claims to be the world’s smallest. But it all means nothing to me.  I’m numb to it, as daily, I live in my own …

Sneaky Snacks

Sneaky Snacks

    Hmm, maybe I’ll have a snack. Not really hungry just something to tied me over. A nosh. Just pecking on a bit. You know the feeling.   Time to amble over to the pantry and take a looksy to see what I can find.  Always something in the pantry, right?   Behold on …

One Tucked Nerd

One Tucked Nerd

  It shouldn’t feel awkward.  But it does. Like the time I forgot pants at Applebee’s.  Hey, the sign said “No shirt, no shoes.”  They made NO mention of pants whatsoever! Sorry I brought that up.  It’s the subject of a whole ‘nuther blog post. I’m talking about shirts here.  To tuck or leave untucked, …

Jerks of Art

Jerks of Art

  It was last month, roughly the middle of March, as I found myself quietly admiring the piece on the wall. I gasped, like stepping on a Lego, when I noticed the faintly written date at the far bottom.     “3-15-70”     Fifty years ago!  Half a century had passed! Where had time …

Mother & Father

Mother & Father

  I’ve never been keen on formalities, especially when it came to addressing my parents as “mother” and “father.” Referring to “my mother” or “my father” in conversation seemed so upper crust.  Like something one would say at the country club wearing a houndstooth jacket, sipping a martini. My experience growing up was quite different.  …
