Another Lazy Spells – Planning a Perfect Weekend
Thank you for visiting.
John

I am going through another lazy spell.
Not much is going on with my life right now.

Like I always say, boring is good. To me, boring is the ultimate happiness. Nobody around me is sick or dead. I visit my parents and they are always happy. I go to work every day and have fun. There is no “News”. I didn’t win a lottery. But I didn’t lose a job. Boring is good. 

I’ve been feeling tired and lazy lately. So I took things slow. I went to Costco today at my lunchtime, but I bought nothing special.

I am planning for a perfect weekend.

This weekend, I will be totally home alone. I don’t even have a date. I am very excited about this weekend alone.

I will fix a good meal, practice guitar, work on the computer, visit my parents, watch movies, watch NBA finals, eat out, go to the farmers market, go to Costco, work on my websites, drink good coffee and tea, wake up early to enjoy morning…

I plan to dedicate 1 day to listen to Christmas music a lot.

I hope to start my weekend on Friday at 4 pm by visiting my parents for dinner. I used to take my parents out to lunch and dinner and give them some cash too. Now, my parents treat me, and they give me cash. They have more money now.

Phony People With Coffee Mugs At Farmers Market
Thank you for visiting.
John

I go to the local farmers’ market every Saturday morning. I buy fruits, vegetables, bread, and lemon. I like to put a slice of lemon in my drinking water.

I wake up around 8 am and splash some water on my face before I head out to the market. I usually wear the same shirt that I wore on the bed.

I seldom see some phony people at my farmers’ market.

I see some people obviously made up for the occasion. They wear lounge-wear, but they look perfect. Their hair looks semi-messy, but the hair would maintain perfect shape and volume. It’s all made up.

And they ALWAYS carry coffee mugs.

We don’t bring a shopping cart to the farmers’ market. We carry stuff in our hands (baskets). We need three hands. Why bring a coffee mug to the farmer’s market? I guess they enjoy looking hip and earthy at the farmers’ market. But, to true farmers’ market shoppers like me, they are pretentious and annoying.

Update 2021 – I want to delete this blog post.

My Church Lied To Me
Thank you for visiting.

You know, my church lied to me for many years? 

They said men had one less rib than women. Because of how God created Eve from Adam’s rib.

They’ve been telling me that for many years. And I believed that. How can I not believe them? It was my church.

As I got older, I realized that they’ve been lying to me. 

All religion is good and beautiful. Innocent blind faith will hurt no one as long as they preach love and care.

But don’t lie to them.

This feeling of resentment remains after 20-30 years.

Online Shopping – Geek Edition

A new power supply for my computer.

It was $151, which was a good deal. Power supplies of this quality easily go for $200.00. It’s a price of a cheap computer.

My computer is highly customized. It runs 6 hard drives and 2 monitors.

I worried that my current power supply was not strong enough.

I shall pick one day to take my computer apart and put this monster in.

Also, this power supply will keep my computer quieter. That alone will make this purchase worth it.

 

Bad design on men’s underwear. Why ???
Thank you for visiting.
John

This had been my complaint for about 20 years.

It’s difficult to find underwear that looks “Normal”. I just want simple low-rise underwear that feels comfortable. I do not want my underwear to bother me. I wear my underwear inside out so the seams (stitching) will face outside. I also wear tank-tops inside out so the seams on my shoulders will face outside. If you think about it, really, why do they put seams inside the underwear?

I found this underwear at ROSS. They look lovely. That’s exactly what I like. But…

Look at the red circle. Do you see the extra seam that’s stitched in? Do you know how uncomfortable that is against men’s (ehem) skin?

They had absolutely no reason to put that extra stitch there. No reason at all. Is there?

Additionally, that area had an extra layer of material so it will be durable. In return, that will make that area extra-warm – stuffy with restricted air circulation.

This is truly an anti-male design. If you are a girl and worry about your boyfriend cheating on you? Buy these for your man. It will FIX him.

Can I please have some underwear with no extra stuff built-in? Thankfully, there is plenty of normal underwear out there. I just have to look for them harder – and pay more.

Hanes now makes underwear with no tags. I applause Hanes for that. I always cut the tags off as soon as I buy underwear & T-shirts.

GTE Phone Bill from 1999
Thank you for visiting.
John

There is a massive cleanup project going on at my apartment. My place was really messy. I will be cleaning my apartment for the next few weeks. After that, I shall keep my place clean forever. 

I shredded a lot of papers. Then I found this 11+ years old GTE phone bill. Whatever happened to GTE?

Anyway, this phone bill made me stop and think about my life 12 years ago. Life was simple back in 1999, except for the Y2K fiasco. I used to rent a room. I made a little money, but I had little worries. I used to drive a beat-up white convertible. My hair was even longer than now, and I used to wear a cowboy hat on top of it. 

1999 was the year I went back to school for a Computer degree. I was sick and tired of being poor. I enrolled myself in a super expensive private university and took out a loan. I wanted to make more money. I wanted to be rich. And, most of all, I wanted to own my own house to prove that I made it.

I still don’t own my own house. I have a one-bedroom apartment now.

I still have fun. I save some. I am still going for homeownership. We’re all having a tough time in this economy. But I try to look at the bright side.
