The Good Guys and the Bad Guys

A subscription to Amazon Prime means Josh and I want to get together earlier and watch a little more of The Grand Tour, which we started last Sunday. “The Good Guys and the Bad Guys” was a song from Any Which Way You Can, which I was watching on Grit.
“Bless the LORD, O my soul!
O LORD my God, you are very great!
You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
covering yourself with light as with a garment,
stretching out the heavens like a tent. (Psalms 104:1-2)”

Wander Over Yonder

On a side note, I have 9 days off in a row afterward. Maybe we could hang out on Saturday or Sunday this weekend also.
Bennigan and I met at the KC Super Buffet ahead of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Saturday I bought Jersey Mike’s Subs and we watched Zoolander and “Best of the Worst: Wheel of the Worst #16,” most recently from Red Letter Media.

Melina Kanakaredes

Five years ago, my mother suffered an aggressive cancer of the liver and passed away three months later; however, she was able to be home for six of those weeks.
Perhaps more known for Guiding Light, Melina Kanakaredes also appeared a short-lived primetime drama Providence, where the mother of her character visited her dreams.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (1 Peter 1:3-5)”

which was okay for the first day; however, combined with whatever medicine my mind becomes clouded and foggy and my work suffers. so I took nothing on Sunday.

Gamble Rumble

Race Queen Fluttershy original ver. by rvceric
Honestly, I was worried about changing policies at work about sick leave, so I can no longer sleep this morning ahead of overtime today; I bought an “Initial D Ugly Sweater,” for “next Friday... Ugly Sweater Day,” since my colleagues tell me my sweaters flatter me.
Mentioning this allows me to segue into “Gamble Rumble,” my favorite song at the moment -- from Initial D: Best Song Collection 1998-2004, this Eurobeat is somewhere between “Perfect Strangers’ Original Theme” and “Doc Hollywood Theme Song” is first heard in Initial D: Third Stage and is the first track on my current mix CD.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before he endured the cross, despising the shame, (Hebrews 12:1-2) and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”

A Bad Reflection on You, Part 2

Humor vampirism 033

My friend, with whom I became friends when he made me an admin of his Pony page, also added me to a group for Rooster Teeth, an animation studio which produced Red vs Blue and RWBY among others. My friend is not the author of the following note.
Thankfully, someone in the thread explained the initialism M.D.B. in plain language; a post where one is given a hypothetical situation wherein one is offered a Million Dollars But one must tolerate an undesirable condition or situation as part of the wager:

Hey folks! To add to the post Gavin made, I just want to shed a little more light on the issue of the MDB posts.

Some of you will remember a while ago we had an issue arise where people were upset with lewd RWBY posts. We ended up with a divided community and had an overwhelming amount of people messaging us saying they were uncomfortable with the posts and that they were making them no longer wish to participate in the group. This is obviously something we never, ever want to be the case, and we ended up having to make a very hard ruling to fix the issue. We’re in a similar situation now.

Every year when a new season of MDB starts, scenario posts tend to flood the group. These are all well and good, and we 100% support this kind of community-building activity. However, there is an immense issue with them considering Facebook’s algorithm for relevant posts. Basically, the most active posts will be the posts that are featured most and have an overwhelmingly higher chance to be featured outside of the group. This can cause MDB posts to appear incredibly spammy and makes it so that other content doesn’t appear as often. This is a shortcoming on Facebook’s part really, but it’s, unfortunately, one we have to deal with as part of the platform.

To try and rectify this, I’ll be making a master post for all MDB content moving forward. It will be the stickied post for the duration of this season of MDB, and we ask that any scenarios you would like to present to the group be posted on that post. We will be deleting any MDB content posted outside of that post, and I will do my best to try to copy/paste scenarios posted outside of that post to the comments of the master post for discussion, and tag the original poster.

Thank you all so much for your fantastic feedback and criticisms. Please never hesitate to message me with questions, and have a fantastic day! --Cole

Lonely is the Knight, Part Five

“Oh, no, Lois. That's the beauty of part 5. It's so intense it jumps right over parts 3 and 4. Clock is ticking, 40-Year-Old Virgin. Keep it together.”
“Take my words and read them every day / Keep them close by,
don’t you let them fade away”
“WORDS: They hold so much power. Make your words your superpower and use them for good. 🤨🧐🤔
Speak a kind or encouraging word (or lots of them) to someone today, you may just tip the scale and make their day go from bad/blah/ok to amazing. It takes you only a short time to speak the words but the impact of positive words on the listener can make a lasting positive impression.
Go out there today and love, encourage and speak light into someone’s darkness. 🤗”
“Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord,
nor of me his prisoner, (2 Timothy 1:8-9)

not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace,
which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began,”

Whirlwind weekend 041

Tuesday, I asked, “Mußte ich am Samstag arbeiten?”
The short answer was yes, yet only eight of sixteen possible overtime hours were required, so I have an option to work next Saturday and had an option to not work today if I had chosen. Being functional, taking a break, having a snack, and looking at daylight at noon on a Saturday made me nostalgic for those PreACT sessions in high school.
Sunday, I feel nearly as bad as I did on Thursday when I had to go home early. Saturday night, my friend, whom I mention in “Celebratory note 003,” had a celebration for his fiftieth birthday at The Original Margarita’s Restaurant:
“So, last night I did get out and celebrate my birthday, and had a blast. Big thanks go out to everyone who was there - Jennie, Cyndi, Jennifer, Ben, Chris, and Kris. Good friends and great food. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - there’s nothing better in this world than hanging out with people who make you smile. I love you guys! Extra thanks, actually, go to Cyndi, for putting up with me all afternoon, too.”
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering,
for he who promised is faithful. (Hebrews 10:23)”

Ride the Pony 009

Illness caused me to go home early on Thursday night. My coughing and sneezing could likely be why The Girl Next Door decided to Just Ghost on Friday night.
After working both Friday and Saturday, I did not want to expose Bennigan or my intermittent coughing to ruin how anyone would experience Justice League, so I canceled our plans Sunday. While I also canceled with Josh, I have caught up my rest.

A meeting raised the specter of required overtime,
and I had plans Saturday.
To use a facsimile machine stresses me, I had to provide documentation, and need to reapply for my income-based repayment plan which is renewed annually. Perhaps, I can be pitied for having no desire to do these things until I must.

The Day After

No one wants to work the day after Thanksgiving,
especially those in retail,
but I-I forgot to request a day off so I was there at the office.
My body did not want to be there;
I had aches and pains and emotional turbulence,
but the evening ended better than it started.
Knowing full well that we didn’t have to work either Saturday or Sunday, a female colleague said, “I’m so angry about having to be here today, I’m not going to come in the next two days; that’ll piss ‘em off! How’s that sound to you?”

I wouldn’t want to do anything to upset them,” recently finding myself in an ‘Optimal Situation,’ I replied, “I’m motivated by fear and guilt,” so this first time I had said anything in front of another girl I have had my eye on was made more awkward.
“For am I now seeking the approval of man,

Kill Me Baby; Baby, please kill me

Facehoof by FeduMedu

Ah, geez. Rick (the following Japanese theme song is rather raucous), “Kill Me, Baby; Baby, please kill me,” while I concede to a refreshing naivete (seriously, ‘skunkweed’ was something I had never heard of nor smelled until I was standing outside my twentieth high school reunion), I have moments of painful awkwardness which I frequently overthink later, especially when talking at the girl I like.
Because of where I work and the nature of the work, I cannot mention anyone with whom I work, “The names have been changed to protect the innocent,” so The Girl Next Door, as confusing as that is, literally sits next to me and I have spoken to her awkwardly and recently two times in as many months.
Stale zaniness 063,” where I was concerned about when seating would be rearranged, was also a day I suggested that I could put a larger pony at desk (I make no secret about my affinity for My Little Pony) so she could find my new location. In fact, I realize she is not likely to seek me out and I start nearly all of our converstaions.
The second time was Tuesday night. Besides Being Scott Malkinson,
I didn’t sleep well, had soda instead of coffee, so I was tired and out of sorts.
While I was in training, she broke up with someone at work and cried for three days, according to my colleagues. She has since found someone new and she and her former boyfriend had a nice conversation.
I asked deliriously, “So are you two are a thing?”
“What, friends?”
In fact, I had forgotten that he has had a new girlfriend for months,
then I apologized, labeling my inquiry, “cringy,”
so “Kill Me, Baby; Baby, please kill me.”

An unexpected musical Journey, (there It Is)

“Oh, thank God! You have not finally really done it,” usually 94.9 KCMO and KC 102.1  change their formats by now and they had already been playing holiday music for ten days by this time last year.
With the preceding, one can understand my relief to hear “Band On The Run” as I left work (94.9 plays two songs in a row each hour for Beatles’ Wednesdays), which was followed by “1999,” a recorded announcer who introduced “another 50-minute Christmas music marathon,” appropriately before “No Satisfaction,” and I was like, “Ha, denied!”
Barely Breathing” preceded a blast of Eurobeat from my current mix CD, my ride home concluded with “Come Together” covered by Gary Clark Jr on X105.1 KC.

A Friend in Deed, supplemental

No NFL players protest for Veterans Day: Federal Holiday To Celebrate Those In Uniform,” and my father who served in the Air Force enjoyed a meal at Chili’s Grill & Bar.
Yesterday, I visited my friend David in hospital, where doctors determined he was going to need surgery which they scheduled for this morning at 8 o’clock.

Despite my best efforts, I was not able to visit David ahead of the procedure because they moved a half hour early which was when I was only waking up.
Within two hours, David was moved to a room for recovery and was returned to his room an hour later, when I met his biological father and the wife of his biological father, then I had left on an errand:
Three weeks ago, Ronni and I visited David for a game night. We bought a standard red folding chair and a black stackable banquet chair with us, leaving the banquet chair. Recently, a brown swiving chair that David had had for some time broke, so I went to pick up the other black chair in case his father and wife wanted to sit when they visit.
David remains at the hospital tonight for recovery and observation. He was groggy when I spoke with him for a half hour before delivering the chair to his place. I returned his apartment keys before I said good day to let him rest.

Ah, geez, Rick, why you got to go and wake me up at quarter after 10 in the morning after I’ve only been asleep for 5 hours and all my day off, no less?
“I’m both sick of and sick to my stomach.
Actually thinking of going to the E.R.”
said my friend David on Facebook.
Ronni and I were visiting him and he seems in good spirits, his hospital gown is green, and I left to pick up three things from his apartment: his phone charger, headphones, and ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’
