I've been a journalist, teacher, instructional designer, project manager, product manager, business guy... Veteran of the married life for 30-something years. Sort of helped raise one boy to be decent adult. Here to spread my bullshit and read what others have to say.

Post-Op Bullshit

The surgeon looked at me with the kind of disgust one saves for making sure the cockroach is dead before you throw it in the trash.

“What do you mean it still hurts?” he said. “You had a leaf tear and I smoothed it all out.”

Diphthong Denea

One of the fucked-up things about playing recreational tennis is away matches.

You have to drive to some other part of town and play on strange courts.  And worse, we can’t just walk to the Third World bar to enjoy some popcorn and beer with the resident mice — we are forced to pick a different bar.

Fat Biker: Wheel Suckers

Most cyclists are your basic MAMIL’s (middle-aged men in lycra) — you know harmless, masochistic skinny fucks who enjoy burning muscle pain and oxygen deprivation. 

But occasionally out of a pack of MAMIL’s, one douchebag will pop up like burnt toast.  There’s a few different types of douches, but the worst is the wheel-sucker.

A History of Phoenix

Phoenix, Arizona, where mighty rivers go to die.

Phoenix is a giant sandy sponge that soaks up all the fresh water from 5 states.  The Salt and Verde rivers bring water from northern Arizona and New Mexico and run dry 30 miles short of Phoenix.    The underground aquifers of the Santa Cruz, Gila, Agua Fria and New rivers drift into the Valley of the Sun.

Bible Quote or Mein Kampf?

Let’s play a game:  (The sensitive and the religious may want to sit this one out).

Is it a quote from the Bible of Mein Kampf?  Yeah that Mein Kampf — Hitler’s evil receipe for the world.  I’m not praising that shit.  I’m just showing the worst example I could think of to compare to what some think is the “good book.”

Cut Me, Doc, Cut Me

I know it probably won’t work, but I’m signing up for surgery.

I’ve combined advil and tylenol. I’ve done the physical therapy, the braces and the weird shots of sugar and bacteria — or spun out particles of my own blood.

Left knee got better. Right knee got worse.

Killing me with Coffee

Something different.

This crazy lady I met on the internet asked if I would write something for her blog.  Unlike all the other lifestyle and recipe blogs, she rants and swears with the best of them.  Unlike my bullshit, there’s a lot more to her stuff than just anger and insults.

So, I could only hope to put some bullshit together that would fit on her page.  And sadly this is the best I could do.

You can read it on her page:

A History of Tucson

Humans came here about 12,000 years ago.  Maybe they were explorers following the mountains and water in search of a better life?  More likely they were refugees left to die in this god forsaken summer of hell with no air conditioning.
