Back in the saddle!


Well, I’m back on the fast, and I’m working through the TEFL certification course a few bits a day.

I’m hangry, but I know it’ll go away when my body recognizes its feeding time.

I lose some good weight last time, and it didn’t bounce back all the way, so here’s to not being a fat bastard in 2018!





So I have decided to take a TEFL class, as I found one pretty cheap through groupon.

Less than 40$! So even if it doesn’t live up to its claims, I’m not out 1300$ like a lot of other places charge.

That plus my BS = teaching English abroad, so I can save money to pay off these awful school loans.

Plus I can keep writing in my off time, and keep the brand name going.

I hope this works out!

Sad, Sad news.


People don’t realize just how much actual bookstores mean to me. Heck I used to work at Barnes and Noble, and I still consider it to be one of my top 3 jobs ever.

In the checkout line…


So, in my day job as a cashier (union benefits are awesome, and that’s why I’m there), we’re expected to ask if people would like to donate to Santa Bucks ( we make holiday meals for the less fortunate families in our community. The money stays in our community, and doesn’t get sucked dry by come corporation who “manages” it.)

When people don’t want to help, they like to say

“No, I’m good”

I’ve been replying

“Neutral at best.”



I can’t even


So, the day after Halloween, I was working my cashier job, and as usual, after a holiday, you ask did you have a good <INSERT HOLIDAY NAME HERE>?

I had this one old biddy, reply “I hate it and everything about it.”

Curious, I ask, “Did something happen?” because tragedy takes away holidays. My neice killed herself on st. paddy’s day, so that holiday is kind of dead to me. I get it. Really.

But she replies “I hate it because it’s the devils birthday” The utter conviction and faith in her voice was

…breathtakingly stupid.


Sometimes things happen that lower my expectations of humanity.

This was one of them.


Got my side-hustle game on!


So I got a gig working for Evergreen museum doing 2 shows in December, (I’m playing Wilbur Wright!)

If you didn’t know. This is the place that has the Spruce Goose (and it is super impressive in person!)

No actual money,  but memberships for me and the squirt. So we can hit that waterpark!

2 shows in one day = 2 memberships to an awesome museum, with an indoor waterpark and IMAX = totally worth it.

I suppose it’ll look good on a resume?
