1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7

The lovely ljc tagged me for a meme of 7 fun or interesting things about me.

1. I always pick out and iron my clothes the night before. This includes choosing shoes and jewelry.

2. There were several years in high school where I wanted to shave the back of my head and keep the top and front long, but I was too much of a wuss to do it.

3. I don't like to eat calzones because I find it difficult to swallow the cheese.

4. I've kept a handwritten journal since 1985. There's gaps in it that stretch across months, but if gathered together I have some semblance of my life over that time period.

5. I took middle eastern dance classes for a few years as a kid.

6. I don't have a competitive streak unless I'm playing a trivia-based game. In fact, if you're friends with me, it's best if we're on the same team lest I get into a heated argument with you over whether The Beatles wrote "I Think We're Alone Now." (This happened. A friend made the mistake of arguing with me that they did. We didn't talk for a couple days)

7. I consider The Body Shop's White Musk my signature scent and have worn it since the 1990s, even though it's such a 1990s scent. No other scent or perfume I've tried since has appealed to me as much as that one.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ontario look rinky dinky. Holy cow. Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is no joke. Tomorrow we try to escape it and find some peace and nature in the (literally) Smoky Mountains.

Bloggery (a repost)

I wrote this on another site:
Perhaps I'm too old for the reveal-all-confessional type of blogging but reading claw marks lately makes me want to start blogging again to at least expand upon the thoughts I wouldn't otherwise write out in a Facebook post or vague tweet.
A couple of years ago, I took the month of February off from Facebook under the premise that the time I wasn't wasting on Facebook could be channeled into other things. I blogged quite a bit, I read a few books, got out a little, and generally tried to avoid looking at anything on there. It wasn't perfect, by far. A fair amount of friends still use Facebook to communicate about social events and general happenings, so I was out of the loop on all of that, thus defeating part of my goal to be in better touch with hanging out with them. Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College

In light of this week's Presidential election, here's an update on why the Electoral College is awful. Watch the original video after this short update:


[UPDATE] The YouTuber went back and did ANOTHER update to correct himself on some issues. It's also worth watching especially because one part of it reminded me of the awful governing situation we have in New York State that is referred to as "3 men in a room."
