02-13-2014 Journal Entry – Sabbatical !   3 comments

I need to alert everyone that as of today posting to this blog will be temporarily inactive.  Due to certain personal projects I’ll be unavailable to blog daily for the next two months. I’ll touch base weekly to collect and respond to comments and emails but little else.  This will my first time leaving my blog on it’s own and  I feel like I’m abandoning my only child to the vicious outside world.

I hope to return sooner than the two months but only time will tell. Thanks to those of you who follow this blog and the others who visit so often.  Your visits and comments were always appreciated.  I hope to return as soon as possible.

02-09-2014 Hooray, It’s Cliché Day!   1 comment

cli·ché

/kliˈʃeɪ, klɪ-/  [klee-shey, kli-] noun

1.a trite, stereotyped expression; a sentence or phrase, usually expressing a popular or common thought or idea, that has lost originality, ingenuity, and impact by long overuse, as sadder but wiser, or strong as an ox.

2.(in art, literature, drama, etc.) a trite or hackneyed plot, character development, use of color, musical expression, etc.

3.anything that has become trite or commonplace through overuse.

4.British Printing.

a. a stereotype or electrotype plate.

b. a reproduction made in a like manner.

adjective

5.trite; hackneyed; stereotyped; clichéd.

The word cliché comes from two origins:

  • A sound – The French used the word to describe the sound that a matrix, or a mold with letters on it, made when it was being dropped into molten metal to make a printing plate.
  • A printing plate – Oddly enough, the printing plate itself was called a cliché or a stereotype and it was one of the first movable types in the world.

I like to stay ahead of the game and to be all things to all men but that’s easier said than done at times. I always try to hammer out  things, leave no stone unturned, to give you a leg up on  events and to dish the dirt religiously. 

I love to punch the clock, push the envelope, and push people’s buttons whenever possible. I may pull someone’s leg but I’ll never pull any punches or leave you in the lurch. I’m the master of the left-handed compliment and I’ll do my level best to harp on a point and let the chips fall where they may.

I probably should quit while I’m ahead but I so enjoy pulling the rug out from under people who need it.  I’ll  let the cat out of the bag in a New York minute because it’s all in a day’s work here at Every Useless Thing.

I’ve seen the handwriting on the wall while pounding this Internet pavement and while I operate tongue-in-cheek I’ll touch all the bases, tilt at the appropriate windmills and draw a bead on whoever tickles my fancy.

I try to fair and balanced but sometimes it’s a tough row to hoeIt goes without saying that the Internet can be all things to all men but many people love playing fast and loose with the truth.  It occasionally causes me to throw caution to the wind, find the liars and throw them under the bus. 

With this posting I’m trying to determine if I could on a good day use clichés to make small talk and supply you with food for thought.  Most days I operate off the top of my head scrounging around for nuggets of information to help me let off a little steam. To make a long story short, I’ll never hold my tongue. I’ll continue to call a spade a spade especially when I’m on the warpath about something. Don’t believe everything I say hook, line and sinker but if the shoe fits, wear it.

IT’S ALL IN A DAY’S WORK!

02-07-2014 Journal Entry – Workaholics!   Leave a comment

On any given day I enjoy relaxing.  It’s taken me a lot of years to learn how to relax after spending my working life as a six day a week workaholic. Even as a high stress workaholic I was able to relax but it was just as hard to make time for that as the job itself.  I knew when the job and my bosses needed to be ignored and occasionally paid a price for doing just that. I was also ridiculed at times by my workaholic co-workers but I knew where my limits were and tried never to exceed them.  Disconnecting from the everyday grind for me was the path to good mental health.  I’ve always used the light-switch analogy and have advised more people than I can remember to go home at the end of the day, turn off the work light-switch and  just relax.

I watched for years as retail management pushed associates into completing long lists of tasks and if they weren’t accomplished correctly the associates were then criticized for their lack of customer service skills.  It was a vicious cycle that produced “task oriented” people in large numbers with a terrible customer service (people) attitude.  Associates became brainwashed and unable to feel good about themselves unless their long list of tasks had been completed at work and at home.

“Stop, smell the flowers, and relax.”

I’ve been personality tested by my employers on many occasions.  I’m was always considered an “A” type personality who was a great multitasker, knew how to accomplish the goals set by the corporation and to “get the job done”. Little did they know that doing their tasks was the easy part of my day but getting their tasks done quickly and making time for myself was even more difficult. It was a full time job trying to survive my full time job. I was always successful in the job but when I had down time I used it.  When I was relaxing I put tasking out of my mind completely and that skill helped maintain my somewhat healthy outlook on things.

I’m now retired but I live with someone who is totally task oriented.  She works a full time retail job and she has a difficult time relaxing when she gets home. She feels like her day is a total failure without a long and completed “To Do” list.  I’ve been trying desperately for years to get her to turn off that “light switch” when she gets home but have only been moderately successful.  I’m nothing if not persistent but she can be just as hard headed as I am.  It’s a battle I’ll keep fighting because it needs to be fought.

While personality tests and reading about personality types has been regarded by some as self-indulgent navel gazing, there is a real value that comes from identifying our natural tendencies. Every personality has strengths and weaknesses, and understanding what yours are allows you take advantage of those strengths to overcome the weaknesses.

I was surfing around the Net yesterday and discovered the following list of suggestions to assist those task oriented individuals in their attempts to relax.  Balance in life is more important than most people think but many people talk about reaching a balance but never actually try to accomplish it.

  1. Schedule time to focus on the people around you and commit to setting aside your To-Do list during that time.
  2. Consciously make eye contact when your husband, partner, or children speak to you so that they have your full attention.  Be attentive and focused.
  3. Go anywhere where you can just enjoy being with your family without the distraction of things that need to be done.
  4. Look for opportunities to get things done in smaller chunks rather than saving them all up to do at once.

I take and make time to do absolutely nothing.  Some people call it meditation and others (task oriented people) call it loafing.  Regardless of the name it’s total down time where the mind can rest as well as the body.  Just a few minutes a day seems to work for me.  I admit I have my work cut out for me with my better-half but I refuse to give up the fight.

RELAX DEAR!

02-06-2014 Stupid Questions = Stupid Answers   Leave a comment

All of my life I’ve been curious about things.  I suppose that was the trait that drew me to a career in investigations.  I hate having unanswered questions and when I find one it makes me a little crazy.  They stick with me until I can resolve the question with a logical answer.  I’ve also found over the years that there are thousands of questions that have no logical answers,  Some people might call them stupid but that doesn’t change the fact that they need to be answered.

Over time I’ve reviewed lists from others and made lists of my own with questions that no one  can or will answer.  Here’s a small collection of a few of them that will get you thinking a bit.  If you have answers let me know but  I’m willing to bet you won’t be any more successful than I’ve been.

Here goes nothing . . . . .

  • What happens if you get scared half-to-death twice?
  • What happens when you call a 1-800 number collect?
  • What should you do when you see an endangered animal that is eating an endangered plant?

All interesting questions but very few answers that make any sense at all.  Life can be so challenging at times.

02-05-2014 Journal Entry – What is funny?   Leave a comment

I’ve always felt I was the kind of person who had a really good sense of humor.  I love good jokes, limericks or just about anything that will make me laugh. I also enjoy making people laugh and I’ve always have at my beck-and-call any number of jokes, quips, and sayings that helped me do that.

Most of my really close friends over the years have been people with a well-developed sense of humor who weren’t afraid to laugh at themselves. I’m a big believer that self-deprecating humor is by far the best and I practice it myself on many occasions. I love humor but I hate the kind that’s used to embarrass or degrade anyone.

One of my biggest problems is my inability to remember jokes. I’ve had friends that after a few drinks could tell jokes for two hours without taking a breath. The more they drank the more jokes they remembered and the funnier they became. That’s what I call a damn party. Unfortunately those kinds of people are few and far between these days or so it seems.  Maybe it’s just me and I’m running in the wrong circles.

It also seems that a great many people claim to have little or no sense of humor. These are people that take themselves and their jobs way too seriously.  They wear their lack of humor like a badge of honor at times and I just can’t wrap my head around that kind of thinking. What I’m trying to say as gently as possible is that if you have no sense of humor you’re probably boring as hell and about as much fun to be with as getting an STD.

I’m always on the lookout for people who love to laugh. Those are the people I want in my life and to spend time with to enjoy some quick-witted repartee. People who take themselves too seriously are no fun and it’s double trouble when they’re relatives. I remember being told a long time ago that “you can pick your nose, you can pick your friend’s nose, but you can’t pick your relatives.” It remains true today.

So this morning as I was surfing the Net I discovered websites that were actually dedicated to what have been termed “unfunny” or “anti-jokes. What kind of person takes time out of their busy day and a great deal of time each week in maintaining and promoting a website that’s totally effing ridiculous. These are supposedly jokes that are so unfunny that they become funny. Statements like that  irritate the crap out of me and people making those statements must assume we’re all as dumb as they look.

Here are few samples of these anti-jokes and even after reading through hundreds of them, I just don’t see the point. Life is way too short to spend time with this nonsense. I’ll give you a few examples and then I’m going to walk away and never look back on this posting or their stupid web sites ever again.

  • Why did the boy drop his ice cream?
    Because he was hit by a bus.
  • Roses are red,
    Violets are blue.
    I have a gun.
    Get in the van.
  • An Irishman walks out of a bar.
    What’s green and has wheels?                                                                   Grass, I lied about the wheels.
  • A dyslexic man walks into a bra.
  • What would George Washington do if he were alive today?
    Scream and scratch at the top of his coffin.
  • A horse walked into a bar. Several people got up and left as they spotted the potential danger in the situation.
  • What is the biggest lie in the entire universe?
    ” I have read and agree to the Terms of Service”
  • A duck walks into a bar. Animal control is promptly called and the duck is released in a nearby park.

Well, do you think they’re stupid and offensive or is it  just me.  Maybe they do appeal to you and if so,  you have my sincerest sympathies.  I need laughter in my life from humor that is funny. It can be dark and morbid and still be hilarious.  But to quote one of my favorite comedians, Ron White, “You just can’t fix stupid”.

LAUGH A LITTLE TODAY

02-04-2014 Home-Grown Know-It-All’s!   Leave a comment

If your experiences in life are anything like mine have been there’s always someone available to offer advice, both good and bad.  Usually without you even asking.  Every one thinks they’re some kind of philosopher and never hesitate to show you just how smart they think they are.  It can be annoying as hell but every once in a while the proverbial blind man can find that pearl of wisdom.  Unfortunately you’ll probably be forced to listen to a few dozen inane and stupid statements to get to the one that would really mean something.

My father and grandfather’s had an endless supply of what they thought were inspirational messages. “Don’t pee or spit into the wind.” and “Don’t tug on Superman’s cape.” immediately come to mind.  A special thanks to Jim Croce for supplying my Dad with that one.

I began looking around the Net for more material on this subject but was soon overwhelmed with possibilities.  Some of the following messages and quotes, and thoughts came from celebrities, politicians, and as always my favorite, Anonymous.  I’ve removed the names of the authors because it the message that counts not who wrote it.  You should be able to figure a few of them out if you give it some thought.  Here we go.

  • “Some days you’re the dog, some days you’re the hydrant.”
  • ”The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.”
  • ”It’s hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.”
  • ”Your garbage disposal eats better than 30% of the people in this world.”
  • ”Isn’t having a smoking section in a restaurant like having a peeing section in a swimming pool?”
  • ”Never do card tricks for your poker buddies.”
  • ”To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.
  • Beware of the toes you step on today. They could be attached to the ass you may have to kiss tomorrow.”
  • “Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.”
  • “The only normal people are the ones that you don’t know very well.”

  • “What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.”
  • “If you talk to God, you are praying; if God talks to you, you have schizophrenia.”
  • “A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.”
  • “If you want to leave footprints in the sands of time, don’t drag your feet.”
  • “Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.”
  • “The harder you fall, the higher you bounce.”
  • “I prefer to be a pessimist; it makes it easier to deal with my inevitable failure.”
  • “Who is more foolish? The fool or the fool that follows him?”
  • “To be ignorant of one’s ignorance is the malady of the ignorant.”
  • “A boy can learn a lot from a dog: obedience, loyalty, and the importance of turning around three times before lying down.”

  • “If you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in the dark with a mosquito.”
  • “Life in Lubbock, Texas, taught me two things: One is that God loves you and you’re going to burn in hell. The other is that sex is the most awful, filthy thing on earth and you should save it for someone you love.”
  • “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right.”
  • “Never test the depth of the water with both feet.”
  • “Don’t be irreplaceable. If you can’t be replaced, you can’t be promoted.”
  • “If you lend someone $25 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.”
  • “Experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it.”
  • “The difference between erotic and kinky is that one uses a feather, the other uses the whole chicken.”

Pick a few out that you like and memorize them.  That way when you’re  philosophizing for others you’ll have something to impress them with.  You do know we all do it, all of the time, Right?

02-03-2014 Journal Entry-2014 Sucks So Far!   Leave a comment

If you ever move to Maine one of your favorite words will soon become the word SUCK.  All forms of the word apply to so many things here you’re forced into learning how to use it properly. Follow along and learn just how versatile the word can be.

This  SUCKY Maine winter continues but unfortunately for me I seem to be caught in a bad SUCK cycle right now.  Did you ever have times where things start going wrong and just SUCK.  They say that bad things come in threes but I’m no longer a believer in that old wives tale. For me 2014 has started on an ominous note  where bad things came in groups or CLUSTER SUCKS.

My favorite computer on which I do all of my writing and photography has decided to start SUCKING.  It contains my life as it currently exists which goes to show how bad my life SUCKS as well. As sad as that sounds this computer never has issues because I’ve protected it from viruses, mal-ware, and anything else I could think of.  It’s been as reliable as any I’ve ever owned.  Then I made the mistake of permitting an update to install  from good old SUCKY Apple ITunes.  Now  I SUCK for being that stupid.  From that point on my computer’s registry was damaged causing lots of SUCKY error messages that I’ve been unsuccessful in fixing.  I’ve read everything and tried everything with no luck. I just wanted to scream but had no one to scream at.  That SUCKS!

My next adventure began soon after the SUCKING computer nightmare.  I was awakened two nights ago and my bedroom felt like the inside of a freezer. Someone who shall remain nameless and whose responsibility has always been keeping the house supplied with heating oil, dropped the ball.  No heating oil during a cold week in Maine in the middle of Winter is the definition of SUCKING. Fortunately we have an oil delivery company that was able to respond within 24 hours and refilled the tank.  For a change they didn’t SUCK. You’d think that our problems had been solved but not quite. When things begin to SUCK it then comes contagious.

It seems when a oil tank goes empty the new oil causes a vapor lock in the feeder line and won’t permit any to flow properly until the line has been cleared. That I’ve come to find out just SUCKS. In past years when this problem occurred it required an emergency service call that lasted only fifteen minutes and cost $150.00. That not only SUCKS but it’s also borderline extortion. The better-half and I immediately decided that we’d try to correct the problem ourselves this time around.  After calling on informational resources from SEMI-SUCKY friends and a few SUCKY YouTube videos, an hour and three hundred SUCKY curse words later we had our heat back on. Good news, right?  Not hardly.  That’s an hour of my life I can’t afford to lose and that SUCKS.

Two hours later on this calm Maine winter night with no wind gusts, no ice storms, no sleet or any other related weather issues we lost all of our electric power in the house for some unknown but SUCKY reason.  Since we live in an area where cell phones have difficulty receiving a signal we were stuck sitting in the dark and bitching to one another.  That made for a really SUCKY few minutes of conversation, for sure. It was a double SUCKING kick in the ass because we have a whole-house generator that should have kicked on immediately.  Guess what?  It didn’t freaking work and that SUCKED.

We’re now back and operational but who needs the constant stress of SUCKY crap like this? Now every time the wind blows I’ll be holding my breath waiting for the power to fail with no operating generator. That will definitely SUCK once again when that repair bill arrives. If this is any indication of how the remainder of 2014 is going to be, we are screwed.

2014 SUCKS THE BIG ONE SO FAR

02-02-2014 Happy Ground Hog Day!   2 comments

The groundhog is like most other prophets; it delivers its prediction and then disappears.  ~Bill Vaughn

Today is one of my favorite stupid and senseless holidays.  It’s one that was cooked up by a bunch of German immigrants  from Pennsylvania many years ago.  As I’ve explained in years past, I’ve had an up-close and personal relationship with “Phil” and all of the nonsense that takes place in Punxatawney, PA.

It’s a tongue-in-cheek celebration to the entire world except for a few idiot local politician’s looking to get some face-time on the news.  Even a groundhog is smart enough to know that there’ll be six more weeks of winter when it’s only freaking February.

As I surfed around today I found a web page that must be having a really slow month when it published the following  list of eleven reasons why we should be celebrating this auspicious occasion.

11. It’s on nearly every calendar.

10. Helps relieve cabin fever.

9. Spring or not, it’s six weeks till St Urho’s Day.

8. Forecast is no less reliable than the National Weather Service.

7. At least one of them critters is bound to see things your way.

6. Valentine’s Day is too depressing for nerds.

5. Unlike the Easter bunny, he keeps his dirty paws outside.

4. As they used to say on radio: “The Shadow knows”.

3. It’s fun to say “Punxsutawney”.

2. If a rodent can bring us an early spring, more power to him.

1. In Minnesota, either way we come out ahead.

Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.  ~Maori Proverb

I apologize if you nodded off midway through that list.  I’m not saying I could have done better but OMG.  I think the author might have reconsidered that list when both of his hands fell asleep as he typed it. They were that bored. It is just a real yawner . . . . .

“The trouble with weather forecasting is that it’s right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it.”  ~Patrick Young

I know that many of you think Groundhog Day is lame but this year the impossible finally happened to make it unlame.  Some NFL genius scheduled the Superbowl on Ground Hog Day just so they could steal some of good old “Punxatawney Phil’s” thunder. It’s just those damn sports fanatics attempting to glom on to Phil’s fan base. Just a shameless maneuver on their part.

HAPPY GROUND HOG DAY EVERYONE

SEATTLE RULES!!

01-31-2014 Journal Entry – Coffee Trivia III   1 comment

Well we’re in day three of the Coffee Trivia marathon. I’ve explained in detail all of my past addictions, MY history with coffee over the years and finally today I’ll address my current coffee situation.

“I never drink coffee at lunch. I find it keeps me awake for the afternoon.” ~Ronald Reagan

I’m in the throes of a weight-loss program which while needed is nonetheless annoying and difficult. The diet I’ve been restricted to is not easy and leaves me very few food items that are fulfilling and satisfying. I kid people when I tell them my diet consists of radishes, pudding, cashews, cereal, water, and above all coffee.  Coffee is and remains my one luxury item and regardless of what any Doctor tells me it will be the last thing I ever give up.

DSC_0010

That being said, I’d like introduce you to my two new best friends. My weight-loss program would never be as successful as it’s been without these devices.

DSC_0002

They allow me the luxury of a large number of options in preparing my coffee and it’s helped me work through this ungodly diet.  As you can also see the variety of coffee’s available is incredible and I’m really enjoying tasting as many different types and styles as I can find.

DSC_0006

So now I’ll continue my seemingly endless list of coffee trivia.  I hope you’ve learned a little about coffee and it’s tremendous effect on the world’s economy as well as the huge number of employees it supports worldwide. It appears I’m not the only coffee addict on this planet.  I’m just one of many millions who loves the bean.  Enjoy.

“The more complicated the order, the bigger the asshole. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a ‘decaf grandee, half soy, half low-fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n’-Low and one NutraSweet,’ ooooh, you’re a huge asshole.” ~ George Carlin

  • In days gone by, Turkish bridegroom had to promise that they would always provide their new wives with coffee.
  • Worldwide, more 1400 millions cups of coffee are drunk every day.

This will be the final installment of the Coffee Trivia postings.  I have to admit that I’ve collected enough information for a few more but I don’t want to overdue it. Possibly in the near future I’ll put together additional ones but I’ll let enough time pass so as not to bore everyone.

MORE TO COME EVENTUALLY
