My mind is beyond repair.
It is difficult to prevent reminders from getting to me.
I have not had good goat brain masala in ages, always having to settle for lamb instead. Nothing wrong with lamb brain but goat brain has a little something extra. I don’t know what it is but you’d know when you’ve tried them both.
Raspberry-Lemon is my favourite Pez. Its taste is similar to Fruit Loops cereal. I, however, have yet to try Lemon, Cola, Peppermint, and the Sour Flavours.
I don’t want to live here, they haunt me.
What remains of a person’s life inevitably ends up in the garbage.
Confirmation will arrive when I reflect on my life during its last few moments.
I found an entry-level HR Admin Assistant job that requires 10 years of experience.
If you want to get a job nowadays you either must be a finance major, a criminal, speak Arabic, or a former drug user. Some of these jobs are government ones. The FIB seem to hire anyone, e.g., served 3 years of homicide, except me. Ahahahaha!

10/12/2013 - Continued to hang out with my old friend. We hung out the day before and she saw videos and pictures of my niece, as well as my room. My room was a horrible mess but she was sweet to ignore it. We saw Machete Kills, which I thought she wouldn’t like. I was wrong, she liked it more than I did. I helped her finish some chores and we went to church together, a repeat of the weekend before but without Machete Kills. Spent most of the day, Saturday, with her. It was a good day.
Also saw Prometheus. A decent movie, better than Machete Kills. Machete was much better than both. I wish they don’t make a sequal to it. Also wish Prometheus provided more in the movie. Could a reason that the Engineers wanted to exterminate humans be that humans worshipped the Predators even though the Engineers were their (the humans) creators? The sequel should be good if done right. What was the point in Vickers in the movie?
Listening to something different on iTunes, Seasick Steve. The problem with his CDs is that listening to a few of them in a row makes them sound too much the same.
10/16/2013 - Finished reading Brave Story. This was one of the best books I have ever read. The ending was mostly predictable but well written. Wish there were other books related to Brave Story, like a side story focusing on Kaori. Don’t know if I want to begin reading more books written by Miyuki Miyabe because; (1) I already have many books I need to read before buying more, (2) Many of her books are not translated so it will take me a long time to read through the Japanese books and I wouldn’t be able to understand much, (3) Brave Story may have been a one-off, meaning that it could be the only book I would enjoy from Miyuki Miyabe, and (4) many of her books are hundreds of pages and I can only read so many of those types of books. Maybe later on I’ll stumble across another one of her books and read it.
Started and finished my next book, the same day I finished reading Brave Story. It was a handbook written by the people who do the The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbooks. It was a short book, 200 pages. I skimmed a particular chapter because it will never apply to me. Thus I began reading a new book, again, on the same day.
10/17/2013 - Went to back to reading books I always love, i.e., Wallander. It depresses me to read the Wallander series because of similarities but they are great reads.
Books read so far since two or so ramblings ago:
- Brave Story (awesome book);
- The Action Hero’s Handbook
- The Nasty Bits (not as good as A Cook’s Tour because it is a collection of articles. It ended up depressing me towards the end, reminding me of people I want to permanently forget and regret meeting)
If you are in a crowd of 30 people and 29 of them are smiling and cheering, keep your eyes on the one who is not smiling and cheering and is wearing the “People Suck” T-shirt. -from The Action Hero’s Handbook
10/18/2013 - Was feeling weird the entire day. Decided to shred a picture that was taken, as she put it, “so I’d never forget.” Shredding it made me feel better.
My bro finally sent the cute video of my niece kissing/head-butting a boy. It’s a wonderful video I wish I could post. I cannot, however, because they forbade people from posting pictures and videos of the little one. But apparently this cease & desist does not apply to the baby’s mother’s family, i.e., grandma posts new pictures and videos on FaceBook ASAP without asking.
10/19/2013 - I’ve assembled more cribs than most fathers have or will ever have to. I have no children and never will.
My mum still believes that I will get married and have children.
10/31/2013 - Only 3 kids visited for candy, one of them was too young to even have candy. I ended up giving her about 10 packs of M&Ms and Sweet Tarts. Halloween was funny because parents and kids went mostly to house that don’t give candy but are decorated while avoiding houses that give candy but have no decorations. Heck, at one point I was even sitting outside with a container full of candy to give away and parents walked away while their children pleaded. Perhaps it is because I am not white?
11/02/2013 - Have yet to Elysium but I did see Escape Plan. I liked it, though it was predictable. A nice movie but not worth paying full price for.
11/03/2013 - Woke up around 4:00am, tried to go back to sleep but failed, busted out Umberto, and started finding PSP games. I’m in the mood to get and play games. Have been for a few weeks, have little else to do.
11/07/2013 - Started playing Lego Starwars 3. A fun game with the only problems I had were flying (hard to dodge lasers and bullets) and using characters with guns (they seem to be in permanent strife until you release the trigger).
11/12/2013 - First snow of the season, though it is still fall. I am preparing by getting a room ready for me to try Rushfit.
"If ya got dry lips, put chicken poop on ‘em so you won’t lick ‘em!" -Grandpa
11/10/2013 - Baby and her caretakers departed. Her dad’s uncle and aunt flew back home as well. The house is quiet again. Though she is still a baby, she’s much quieter than adults.
I’m still amazed at how similar my brother’s wife and his father are. One says “You don’t know” while the other says “How many people do you know”. Both are lazy, with excuses for everything. An example is that both are overweight but are “too busy” to workout, said while watching television. Both rely heavily on their spouse and think money and calling someone solves everything. Answers from friends and outside sources, like modern science, are always correct versus commonsense, guidance from relatives, and things people have been doing for decades (giving a baby water to drink when her throat is dry or putting her to sleep in her crib). Both give advice and criticize, especially targeting me, but fail to acknowledge their own flaws or heed their own advice. Brother’s wife and his father think they are experts and have lofty dreams, which typically have them lounging around and doing nothing.
I feel sorry for the baby and my mom.
Her first born had his first born this year. When will her baby have a baby of his own? She wishes and prays for this to happen soon but she slowly surrenders to the realization that it never will. But she is steadfast in refusing to fully accept it. Why? Her baby is going to have to take care of only himself and she doesn’t want that.
My brother and his friends worry about their 6-figure salaries, i.e., increasing it. My friends and I worry about our 5-figure salaries, i.e., whether we’ll have one or how long it will last. What a difference four years make.
Well, no matter how new-fangled ya make ‘em, when they bust, they bust. -Old Woman from Five Faces of Darkness, Part 5
There are jobs out there. The problem, though, seems to be that people aren’t hiring?
What is the last 2%?
Why shouldn’t parents give their baby water? Not lots of water but a little, like when her throat is scratchy. Is raising a child similar to how you were raised so terrible?
Why do comedians and talk show hosts not make fun of Jews and blacks, i.e., kill everyone in…, as much as they do of Asians, Latins, and country folks?
Do soldiers remember the days when they attacked with honour?
