Thinking Aloud: Life Sure Is An Odd Duck, Ain’t It.

Well, Ain’t It?

Sure It Is.

My Life Has Always Been Of The Odder(er) Sort.

I’m The Guy That Everything Just Happened To.

If Something Bad Was Possible, I Took The Brunt.

If Something Good Was Possible, Chances Are It Eventually Did Happen In Some Small Way.

If Something In-Between Was Possible, Chances Are I Got The Far-Far-Far-Worse Side Of It.

But, I’m Not Really In The Mood To Complain.

I’m More Of A Mind To Quickly Say “THANK YOU” To You, My Peeps.

I Have My Reasons For Saying “THANK YOU” To You, And I Know I’ll Be Talking About Them More And More As Time Rolls Onward.

But, For Now, For This Moment, I’m Just A Thankful Man.

A Lot Of People Have Tried, And Have Done Their Bestest(est) To Help Carry Me Through These Past Few Years.

As Of Late Monday Afternoon, I Was Informed That A Longstanding Battle I’ve Been Fighting Has Finally Been Resolved.

It Has Been Resolved In MY Favor.

I Won.

My Life Of Hell And Bullshit And Sickness And Poor-Health And More And More Sickness, And Pain, And Suffering, And Blah Blah Blah, And Yakity Schmakity, Has Finally Paid-Off.

At Least, In Regard To This ONE Little Victory.

However, It Makes Me Feel Best Because FINALLY Someone Took Notice That Was In A Position To Do Something About It.

And, They Sided In My Favor.

I’m Elated,

I Feel An Enormous Sense Of Relief.

The 18,000lbs Elephant, With The 800lbs Gorilla Riding Said Elephant, Feel Lifted From Me.

Now I Just Need To Get This Pesky Monkey Off My Damned Back…

…And Perhaps This Chip Off Of My Shoulder…

…Oh, And The Thorn In My Side…

…Uh…

…Yeah…

…Nevermind.

But, Yes, “THANK YOU” Again, Everyone.

Now, Maybe Life Really Can Start Again.

Or, Hopefully, Continue Just Improving And Improving, Bit By Bit.

That Would Be Most Acceptable.

😉     😀     🙂

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

The 2012 Blog Of The Year Award.

First, I’d Like To Thank The Academy For…

…Wait…

…Sorry…

…Wrong Award.

I Think?

This Isn’t The Oscars?

Is It?

Is This The Oscars?

Nope?

It’s Russia.

Right?

This Isn’t Russia… …Is It?

OH.

RIGHT.

Sorry.

Mental Sidetrack.

My Bad.

😉

Alright, My Peeps.

So Y’all Know I Don’t Usually Go In For The Whole “Awards Thingy” Simply Because I Never Saw Much To Them…

…Well, Other Than More Work On The Blog That I Sincerely Never Found The Time To Piddle With.

HOWEVER…

…This Is The Second “2012 BLOG OF THE YEAR AWARDS” I’ve Been Nominated For.

So I Figured Why Not, Ya Know?!

I Haven’t Been Working With My Blog So Much Of Late.

I’ve Been In A Mental/Physical/Emotional Funk.

I Just Haven’t Been Able To Keep My Head Above The Water’s Surface So Much.

Just Enough To Gasp For A Quick Breath, Then Down I Go Again.

So I Figured That MAYBE…

…Just MAYBE…

…Doing A Post On This Award MIGHT Make Me Feel A Little Better, And Help Me Rekindle The Fire Inside That’s Been A Little Smothered Recently.

I Sure Hope That’s The Case, Anyway.

Wouldn’t You Be?!

SURE YOU WOULD!!

😀

I Love Y’all, Kiddies.

Holla At Ya Later, My Peeps.

PEACE!

😀       😀       😀

UPDATE: Thy “Missy” She Is Mending… …This Time.

Well, My Peeps…

…I Think The Official Word Of “Mending” Is Highly Appropriate Here.

She’s Still A Touch Lethargic…

…And She’s A Touch Touchy…

…BUT…

…She Has Eaten More In The Past TWO-DAYS…

…Than She Ate Over The Previous TWO-WEEKS!

I Have To Keep Telling Her To Slow Down, And To Remember To Breathe!

Sheesh!

That’s One VERY Hungry Kitty, Fo Flippin’ SHO!

😀

She Doesn’t Listen, Of Course, But I Know She Knows What The Hell I’m Saying!

😉

So What’s Next For Her?!

Well.

Today Is Her Last Day Of Antibiotics…

…And She Has A Few More Days Of Steroid Pills To Pop.

I Sincerely Hate Hate HATE Having To Give Her Meds At All.

I Know How They Screw-Up My Systems While They’re Healing Me…

…And I Imagine What She’s Going Through Is Similar.

Just Gotta Get Through A Couple More Days Before I Give The “ALL CLEAR” Signal.

I Don’t Wanna Jump The Proverbial Gun…

…But I Do Believe She’s Gonna Be Okie-The-Dokie…

…This Time.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR KIND WORDS AND THOUGHTS.

I…

…And “MISSY“…

…Both Kindly Thank You.

Let’s Just Hope We’re Not Going Through This Crap Again For A Long While…

…Fo SHO Fo SHO, My Peeps!

😀       😀

Pain + Pleasure = Nope, Still In Pain :(

Can Tuesday PLEASE Hurry The Hell Up?!

Sheesh.

It’s Very VERY True What They Say About Time.

It Always Seems To Take Its Sweet-Ass-Self When We Really Need It To Hurry The Hell Up, Ya Know?!

It’s Like…

…I Know Time Is A Constant In Our World…

…But It Just Seems To Be Dragging Its Ass This Weekend.

It’s Just Because I Dislike Physical Pain/Discomfort.

The Meds Help A Bundle, Sure Sure…

…But They Don’t Help Enough For Me To Simply Say…

Eh, Let Time Take Its Time. I Don’t Mind.

Quite The Contrary.

I Desperately NEED Time To Hurry The Hell Up.

GRRR!!!

😦

As A Human…

…There Are Certain Types Of Pain I ALSO Consider To Be A Bit Of A Pleasure.

I Won’t Get Into The Gory Details…

…But Y’all Know I’m Right.

Alas, Broken-Tooth-Pain Is NOT One Of Those Pleasurable Pains.

It’s Almost Maddening, Honestly.

I’m A Big Girl’s Blouse When It Comes To Pain Like This.

BUT…

…I Did Spend The Bulk Of My Sunday Asleep.

Thanks To The Meds, Sleeping Was All I Really Wanted To Do.

When In Pain…

…SLEEP Can OFTEN Be THE BEST Remedy.

Period.

Am I Right, Or Am I Right?!

EXACTLY!!

I Know I’m Right.

You Know I’m Right.

WE ALL Know I’m Right.

😉

The Meds Are Kicking My Butt As We Speak.

I Woke-Up At 4:54AM…

…And I’m Already Ready To Go Back To Bed.

HOWEVER…

…I Do NOT Plan To Spend The Entire Day Sleeping.

I Have A Bundle Of Little Projects I Simply MUST Work On.

Let’s Just Hope Today Goes Swimmingly Well.

I Doubt It Will…

…But There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong With A Little Hopin’…

…Ya Know Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!!

So…

…I Just Wanna Say THANK YOU, My Peeps.

THANK YOU For All The Kind Words AND Your Heartfelt Sympathies.

Just Gotta Get Through Today.

Tomorrow SHOULD Be A Much Better Day.

SHOULD Being The Key Word There.

I’ve Got My Fingers Crossed!

I Hope You Do, Also!

🙂

I Shall Be Hollering At Y’all Throughout The Day, Kiddies.

Until Then…

PEACE And HUMPTY-NESS FO EVA!!!

😉

Sooo…

…In Case You Didn’t Gather This From The Headline To This Bloggin’ing…

…I’m Now OFFICIALLY Part Of The…

100,000-HITS-CLUB

!!! !!! !!!

That’s Right, My Peeps…

YOU JIVIN’ ME, TURKEY?

…Is Now Among The Ranks Of The Established Greats!!!

WOOHOO!!!

I Told Y’all I Wouldn’t Be Doing Anymore Milestone Pieces Until AFTER…

YOU JIVIN’ ME, TURKEY?

…Had Officially Made It To 100,000 Hits.

Well…

…The 100,000TH Hit Came Yesterday Evening…

…And I’d Been Wracking My Brain All Night…

…Thinking Thinking Thinking…

…And…

…Tinkering Tinkering Tinkering…

…With All Sorts Of Ideas On How To Celebrate.

By The End Of The Night…

…Yeah…

…I Had Nothing.

Couldn’t Think At All, Anymore.

My Body Was Exhausted…

…But My Brain Was Nearly On Life-Support.

I Just Didn’t Know How I Wanted To Do This Thing.

Sooo…

…I Laid Down And Went To Bed…

…Thinking MAYBE MAYBE MAYBE A Fresh Start In The Morning Would Help Me Figure-Out Exactly What I Wanted To Do.

After I Awoke…

…I Popped-On Some Of My Favorite Tunage…

…And I Began To Think…

…And Think Think Think…

…And Eventually It Came To Me!

I Shouldn’t Do Anything Super Special At All!

I Should Do A Post As I Always Do…

…But Add The Fact I’m Now Batting A 100,000 For The Season.

And So, That’s What I’m Doing.

🙂

CHARISMA

by KISS

…Just Felt Right.

It Felt Like The Perfect Song To Go Along With The Spirit Of What I Wanted To Say.

I Don’t Know If It’s My “CHARISMA” That Keeps People Coming Back…

…Or…

…Perhaps…

…They’re Just Curious To See What The Hell I’m Gonna Talk About Next.

For Those Of Y’all Who Have Been With Me Since The Beginning Of This Thing…

…Yeah…

…I’m Sure It’s Been An Oddly Fun’ish Adventure.

There’s No Real Rhyme Or Reason To My Madness…

…This Blog Is Just A Reflection Of The Conflict Within My Twisted Brain.

I Find Staying FOCUSED…

…In ALL Of Its Forms…

…Is Something I Can Rarely Do.

Today I’m Over Here…

…Tomorrow I’m Over There…

…The Next Day I’m On The Friggin’ Moon!

I Would Apologize For That…

…BUT…

…To ME…

…That’s Part Of The Reason Y’all DO Continue Coming Back.

So…

…Thank You, My Peeps.

Thank You For Sticking With This Little Roller-Coaster I Affectionately Call…

YOU JIVIN’ ME, TURKEY?

…A True Love Of My Life…

…FO SHO.

🙂

CHARISMA

…Is…

…Honestly AND Truly…

…My FAVE FAVE Track On Their 1979 Album…

DYNASTY

…Though It’s One Of Their Least Known Jams.

Purest Fans Of…

KISS

…Didn’t Care Much For This Album.

In Fact…

…This Is The Album Where The Term…

KISSCO

…Comes From.

Meaning…

…True Fans Of Classic KISS Music Felt The Band Had…

“Sold Out”

…Because The Album Really Does Have An Almost Disco Like Quality And Sound.

No Foolies, Kids.

I Know A Bundle Of KISS Fans Who Simply HATE HATE HATE This Entire Album.

But Then…

…You Have Fans Like Myself…

…Who…

…Honestly AND Sincerely…

…LOVE This Album.

.Period.

BUT…

…Even With Classic Tracks Like…

I WAS MADE FOR LOVIN’ YOU

(generally considered "The Best" song on the album)

&

2,000 MAN

&

SURE KNOW SOMETHING

…My Favorite Has Always Been…

CHARISMA

😀

T’Is A Simple Jam, Yes…

…But It’s Still “MY FAVORITE”…

…And I Say That Very Easily.

It’s BOTH A Great Walkin’ Jam AND A Great Driving Jam.

So It’s One I Think Y’all Should Check-Out If You Ever Get The Chance.

It’s All About FUN, My Peeps.

FUN Is The Name Of The Game, Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!!

😀

Anyway, My Peeps.

I Once Again Want To Say THANK YOU For Continuing To Check-Out…

YOU JIVIN’ ME, TURKEY?

…And I Sincerely CANNOT WAIT To Get Going On My Next 100,000!!!

As A Matter Of Fact…

…I’m Already Into The Next 100,000.

SO PLEASE…

…Please Please Please…

…Keep On Comin’ Back, Y’all!!!

I May Not Be “THE BEST” At All Of This…

…But I DO Have THE MOST FUN!!!

I Just Hope I Can Keep’er Chuggin’ Along.

And I Honestly Think I Will!!!

With All Of Your Help And Support…

I KNOW I WILL!!!

😉

😀

I’ve Been Agonizing All Day About This… My 1,000TH Post…

Until Just Now.

I Realized I Never Agonize About My Posts.

I May Agonize About Not Having Put Out Enough Posts In A Day…

…Or A Week…

…Or A Whatever…

…But They Don’t Usually Make Me Fret Wanting To Do Them.

If There’s Agony About Individual Posts…

…It’s Generally Because I Don’t Feel So Great When Doing Them.

Not About The Posts, But Me, Physically/Mentally/Emotionally/Etc.

So I Didn’t Think This Post Should Really Be Much Different Than Any Other Post.

Yes, It’s A Personal Milestone.

Yes, I’m Happy To Have Reached It.

Yes, I’m Happy You Keep Coming Back To Check’em Out.

Yes.

Yes.

Yes.

But…

…You Know Me Well Enough By Now To Know I’m Not Supremely Invested In My Milestones.

At The Beginning Of My Bloggin’ing Adventure I Celebrated Them ALL.

Then, For The Longest Time, I Didn’t Even Mention Another Milestone Until This Blog Snagged Its 75,000TH Hit.

That Milestone Was/Is, Indeed, Great.

But I Think This One…

 …My 1,000TH Post

…IS Important For One Major Reason.

It Shows I’m Willing To Commit To Something…

…And I’m Willing To Try To Go Long-Term With It.

I Love Working On My Blog.

I Derive Great Joy From It.

So I Think The Best Way To Celebrate…

…Honestly…

…Is To Simply Say…

THANK YOU, My Peeps.

THANK YOU For Sticking With Me.

THANK YOU For All The Comments AND Kind Words.

THANK YOU For Giving Me The Chance To Have Fun With You.

And…

…Hopefully…

…With Any Luck…

…Good OR Bad…

…We’ll Still Be Having Fun When My 2,000TH Post Comes ’round.

THANX, Kiddies!!!
