23 & Me

23 & Me

    From the title you may think this post is about the popular DNA genetic testing company, 23andMe. Well, wrong you are my friend. (Although personally this subject matter is equally as complicated.)     You see in THEIR world, the number 23 refers to the 23-pairs of chromosomes in human DNA.  The genetic …

A Christmas Bender

A Christmas Bender

  Enjoy this repeat of an older My Odd Sock…   The realities of life are sometimes difficult to accept.  When things aren’t like you imagine them to be.   I’ve been going through a difficult period lately as one of my life long idols appears to be in trouble. I have admired this man …

A Big Red Bow

A Big Red Bow

    Putting a big red bow on a gift carries significant meaning. A big red bow says this is it!  The top gift!  None better!  What you always wanted!  A show stopper! That’s why you don’t put a big red bow on dish towels, socks or underwear.     A big red bow belongs …

Driving Me (Christmas) Crazy

Driving Me (Christmas) Crazy

  I just don’t get it. I worked in advertising, media, marketing for over twenty years and I still don’t understand. During the holiday season car companies seem to come out by the fleet-load to sell product. You can’t watch television for ten minutes without a car commercial for Chevy, Ford, Kia, Toyota, Mercedes Benz, …

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 …
