TITANIC…was it real?
The internet: giving a voice to the people who should remain voiceless.

RIP Paul Muff.
Paul showed us the way by his word and example.
So the other day at my favorite sight seeing destination (Walmart) I saw this woman talking to this man. I was lucky enough to hear a little bit of there conversation. Here it is.
" I watch CSI:CRIMINAL MINDS how I know you ain't gonna murder me"
Now when I first heard this I thought that I just heard the ramblings of a crazy woman who was probably under the influence of some sort of hardcovers narcotic ( you know the ones that killed everyone in the 70’s), but my mind was soon changed when I saw her leaving walmart with a cart full of cat food. It was that moment when I realized that she wasn’t a crack head. She was a awesome mother (even though her kids were cats). She wasn’t just saying some crazy shit, she was protecting her “children ” at all costs. Even if that meant telling everyone that she has seen CSI, and that my friends is something we could all use a little more of.
I was listening to Justin Timberlake while writing this. So judge if you must.
So i was cleaning out the garage today and i stumbled across a few things that my grandmother had given to my brother over the years. My Grandmother is very upfront about most things and she has certain ways of getting her point across, but before i get to that here is some background information. During my brothers teen years he “lost his way” as my grand mother would put it. He smoked pot and did other teen activities such as causing forest fires and getting arrested. Well my grandmother thought the best way to get a stoner to change was to buy him how to books.
Here are some of the books i found
- Quiting Smoking for Dummies
- Chicken soup for the teen soul ( a very heartfelt and touching story of a teen who loves soup?)
- How to go to college
- How to turn your life around
- The south beach diet ( I think she ment to give it to me)
and last but not least
- multiple copies of the Bible
None of those books were ever read.
This made me think about the gifts that she gives to me. Here are a few of them from over the years
- 12th Birthday= Bob the builder Christmas special
- 13th Birthday = A Garfield double feature DVD set, and a sports themed bedroom set ( Which i still use)
- Halloween two years ago = a great pumpkin pajama set from charlie brown (it was too big :( )
-18th Birthday- A t-shirt that says ” Im always right” and Black Suede Leather cologne ( I smell like Burt Reynolds
I’ve come to the conclusion that she thinks that im a 8 year old who likes to smell like a cowboy.
Now she gives me money every holiday so shes still awesome in my book, and if your reading this Grannie i love you and keep the great gifts coming
I’d like to take the time and send a big hello to all you crazy cats out there on this huge party that some like to call the internet. Im Daniel, im an up and coming something or other (haven’t quite figured it out yet). I’d like to think that im pretty good at making people chuckle but then again i also thought i was good enough to go pro in basketball. Im giving this tumblr thing a try, hold on to your seats and enjoy this roller coaster.
