DISH Sucks Today

I just saw that DISH is dropping Fox’s cable programming.  NOT COOL!!!  I love watching Sons Of Anarchy.  Am I going to have to pay on iTunes to watch this show now?  Let me be.  Let me have my show.  Don’t make me ask The Boss to spend more just to watch a show I … Read moreDISH Sucks Today

My Little Minions

So, my little apprentice minions did their thing this morning.  They are due in here in just a few minutes to shoot the “board room” portion of this task.  Let’s see how things go.   Once all was said and done, it really went ok.  Some of my apprentice minions don’t like to talk.  Others … Read moreMy Little Minions

In Which I Try To Place A Value On My Services

What are the value of one’s services they provide every day?  I often find myself questioning this on days like today.  Days when The Boss asks me if I should stay home and get more rest.  My body screams “YES!!!!!!”  Everything else in me says something else. I must admit, compared to other school districts … Read moreIn Which I Try To Place A Value On My Services

The Proverbial Nail In The Coffin

So, we head in to town earlier this week to have dinner.  On the way back, The Boss ends up on a phone call.  So I’m sitting here in silence, driving, driving, driving…the same scenery…or lack thereof.  I’m just not feeling it anymore at this point.  I don’t want to be where I am anymore, … Read moreThe Proverbial Nail In The Coffin

My parents showed up last weekend for a quick visit.  We mentioned the whole New Zealand thing to them.  They’re comment?  ”Just don’t you start a family while you’re there.”   The Boss found that oddly inviting for the idea of leaving the country.

The Boss & a Career Change

From the time The Boss and I started dating, she’s always been apathetic about being a band director.  She has always told me she wants to walk away from it.  I kept on saying that I wouldn’t let her.  The benefits were outweighing the drawbacks.  I just thought she was being over-dramatic.  I was trying … Read moreThe Boss & a Career Change

So…I want to leave the country

Yes, I said it.  I want to leave the country.  I am disillusioned in my home country.  I live in the United States, but I don’t like it.   “But dude, where have you lived?”   I’ve lived in Texas and Georgia.  However, I’ve been through a number of different other states and I can’t … Read moreSo…I want to leave the country
