One of those days.

I miss my dad a lot today. I know I'm a 35 year old adult, but right now I feel like a kid who just needs a hug from his dad. Call your dad today, or if you live close enough give him a big hug and tell him that you love him. Then do the same for your mom.

bromopar:

Sadly my dad is no longer with us but I know how you feel.  

lokiscoyote:

@bromopar I'm sorry for your loss. It is going on 4 years for us since my father passed. I'm not sure I'll ever stop missing him, I'm not sure I ever want to. 

I'm getting old...

I'm getting old, and it is getting me down. I found white hairs in my beard yesterday, I smell like bengay more often than I'd like to admit. I've caught up on Vikings, and so I've decided in a vain attempt to recapture my youth, I'm going to raid west, it worked for Ragnar maybe it will work for me.

Are you moving to the west coast? Or just visiting?

lokiscoyote:

@adelina Oh sorry I was being more metaphorical about the raiding westwards... though maybe I should just grab my battle axe and move west :p 

She makes me so happy.

The past month has been pretty crappy for a number of reasons, but she always seems to know how to make me so happy. It's the simple things sometimes, but today it was the a big thing, or at least a big thing for me.

Thanks all, and I have a weak spot for fortune cookie fortunes so no worries @adelina

bromopar:

She got you a hockey jersey?  Fuck yeah!  She's a keeper!

And let your little heart just cry a little

Things aren't always what we want, and what we want isn't always what we need... but sometimes just sometimes there is beauty in all of it.

Hockey lingo

Today's post brought to you by hockey commentators at the Olympics. Have you been watching Olympic hockey and wondered what a "toe-drag" is or been at a game and overheard a Canadian say, "oh beaut dipsy-doodle eh?" Well I'm here to help. I've compiled a list of common but not technical hockey terms that announcers never explain.

Chirp - Trash talking

Dangle - This...

@x_doug_x Ha! I think that's a Colby Armstrong invention, it's a shorted slap shot where the puck goes top corner on the goalie. 

lokiscoyote:

@adelina I think these days they call those lawsuits waiting to happen. Every game I've been to recently has a disclaimer that you watch at your own risk :p

I'm feeling very worthless because I'm unable to help the people I love. I hate things that are beyond my control. That might be a rather immature attitude, but at 35 years old, I can't imagine it will ever change.

She takes me where I need to go...

My friend, my lover my everything, but yet we are still in limbo. We fight like a couple, we support each other like a couple, but I haven't seen her in over a year. We talk daily on the phone, in fact I spend hours with her on the phone. Taking the next step isn't easy. My finances are a mess due to...

The thing is that I can see myself with her forever, despite our differences (spiritual in nature and well as I drink and she doesn't). I feel like if she and I don't end up together I may never find anyone I would love as much. And I don't say that in the dramatic way a teenager might, I say that knowing myself, knowing who I am and knowing that if I end up alone I'm ok with that. She's my chiral atom, she challenges me and I love her for it. 

mylene:

Thank you!

My mother has been coughing up blood for the last week. She has an appointment with the doctor on Wednesday. She smoked for almost 30 years quit a few years before my dad was diagnosed with his cancer, then started smoking again shortly before he died. She's been an on again off again smoker ever since. I'm scared. I don't think I...

OMG!  So sorry to hear that!  Hang in there bro...sending some positive energy your way.

lokiscoyote:

Thanks all. Right now all we have is the waiting game. Not sure even after her appointment how long we'll have to wait for results.

I wrote this for a competition on a video game website. The game is Star Citizen if you follow those kinds of things, the game is still in development, but many of us followers have found we have a bit of an addiction to buying ships for this in production game. A video blogger was looking for entries to read for her videos about said...

I can't sleep and for whatever reason "All Along the Watchtower" has been stuck in my head and I decided to to do a little research. I came across this critique of it,

"That whole artistic mystique is one of the great traps of this business, because down that road lies unintelligibility. Dylan has a lot to answer for there, because after a while...

adelina:

Nope, never saw it. And yes, it probably wasn't Dylan's objective. But I can imagine how incredible it must be for an artist to pump out any experimental work and have it suddenly hailed as the dawn of a new age, or some equally heavy-handed grandiose claim.

lokiscoyote:

Oh on that account I agree. I think anyone who creates wants to have their creations recognized, everyone I think wants to be seen as clever and brilliant. Creating is such a personal thing, that once you let it out into the public you want praise, or at least I find that's what I want. And with that I think I'll post some of my writing :p
