    A Natural Post 

    Today lets talk about pet peeves. I have a lot of pet peeves because in my mind certain thing we say or the media over uses until we are brainwashed into believing whatever brain decaying they are pushing on that particular day/week or month.


    Man-made is one of these pet peeves I have.


    This definition of nature is something that I have trouble with. Why do we separate natural from man-made? Are we humans unnatural? A lot of you will say that manufacture things there fore it isn’t natural. You will also say that no other species do these things. Bull crap! I have one word for you dam. Why is a beaver dam natural and a power dam not? Why is an apartment building unnatural and an ant hill natural?


    Believe it or not we are part of nature. Everything “man-made” is natural. We evolved on the same planet as all the other animals, insects, fish, marsupials, lizards and birds (For all you very religious types we were all created by the same God). We have more intelligence (some may call it stupidity) that the other creatures of Earth, it doesn’t mean that the birds with their nests are better or greater than bats that simply live in a cave. We humans at one point we also lived in caves, until one day someone decided to build a shelter where there were no “natural” shelter. Guess what that first shelter we built was natural.


    I know you are probably getting tired of this rant so I’ll move on to something else. Last evening I gave blood. I’ll implore all of you to donate when you have a chance because the blood you give will save a life. Donating blood is the “natural” thing to do.

    I’ll leave you on that note.

    p.s. please go to the other blog and vote on the poll.

    Another Week, Another Blog Post 

    This is a postjustice with no clear direction in mind. So I’ll wing it. On Thursday I’ll be going to court. Last year I had a customer who purchased merchandise with bad checks. Now on Thursday he’ll pay for his misdeeds. Hang the bastard! This sounds quite drastic doesn’t it? I think I am over reacting, just a little bit.


    Last Sunday was fathers day I spent it with the family, it was enjoyable, for the most part. My uncle was rushed to the hospital, he was diagnosed with lung and brain cancer about a month ago. There is not much to be done. I hope that he does not suffer to much before his time comes.


    I think this post is a bit depressing so I’ll change the subject to something else. I don’t know what else right now, there is nothing coming to mind at the moment. Don’t say that there is no mind for the subject to come to, because there is. It’s just that right at the moment I’m trying to watch television, type a blog and read at the same time. The television show I’m watching is Meadowlands a very dark vision of suburbia. I’m not sure if I like it or not I’ll have to see a few other show before I decide. I am reading Shadow of the Gihttp://img390.imageshack.us/img390/4379/justiceqc4.jpgant by Orson Scott Card an action/political strategy book, it is quite good.


    I guess that is it for this direction less post. A post with no direction. I’ll say that some days I’ve got it but today is not one of those days. I should have waited until I had at least an idea on what I am supposed to write, not just write something off the cuff. This is what happens when you force yourself into writing a post a week. Now if this was the other blog I would have had something to write… well maybe not. I promise you that the next post will better, well at least not a bad.

      Thank you again. She bowed, condescendingly formally, touchy gracelessly that he could unwiedly heal the dominantly of her neck.

    The New Look 

    Hey everybody, do you like the new and improved look of No Name Blog? I hope you do, great and if you don’t, too bad I like it. I’ll continue to work on the blog so you will be seeing changes the next few times you’ll visit. Enough of that for now.


    Did you watch the series finale of The Sopranos last Sunday? What do you think? I think the The sopranosending was fitting for this great television show. I loved it that it ended without closer. You can decide how it ends. I know a lot of people where disappointed but I wasn’t, it shows that David Chase had the balls not to end the show in a predictable way. I usually love shows or movies or books where the hero dies in the end, it shakes things up. In this case the ending was appropriate because Tony Soprano was not a hero, he was a stone cold killer that fucked around on his wife and would have done anything he could for a quick buck and we loved him for it. We could not get enough of it. It goes to show: everybody loves a winner. It’s not how you play the game, it’s by how much you win that counts. Crime does pay. Its only a crime if you get caught. All is fair in love and war. Enough with all these clichés.


    One thing I learned this week is don’t ask a question if you don’t want to know the answer. Case in point I went to get my oil changed in my car and the salesman who sold the car to me and and a car to my father asked me how my father was doing. I answered truthfully “He’s dying” you should have seen the look of discomfort on his face. I then proceeded in explaining to him what myelodysplasic syndrome was and he was so uncomfortable he was squirming. He looked relieved when the receptionist paged “(salesman name) line 37”, he could not get away quick enough. When I sat down and got to thinking about it I realized that I did the same thing, and I’m sure you do too. The warped sense of humor part of my brain was also working: just imagine if I started crying when he asked how uncomfortable he would have felt.


    Well I guess I’ll call it a day and end with a Mark Twain quote, who doesn’t like a Mark Twain quote? “Familiarity breeds contempt … And children” You may be asking yourself what this has to do with this post, Nothing!

    The Sophomore Post of the Sophomore Blog 

    As I already posted last week: This is my second attempt at writing a blog. I have changed my mind about ditching my other blog on Blogger. I will attempt to maintain both blogs, this on and the other. The other will stay as it is, myself rambling on about computers and once in a while writing about life, or lack of a life.


    With this one I am not totally sure what to do with. I know that I will post something at least once a week, what, I am not sure. I have been thinking of writing short stories, jokes, pictures, anecdotes, essays, what television shows I watched, even recipes. You name it and I’ll probably try to write about it.

    Goerge Costanza or me?

    First thing I should do is introduce myself, My name is Norm. I’m in sales. I live in Canada. Some people have told me that I sort of look like George Constanza in Seinfeld, you know the short, bald ad fat guy. Except I’m Shorter, Balder and Fatter. Well that’s life I guess. My hobbies are computing (see here), listening to music, watching television & movies, reading, writing meaningless blogs and self deprecating.


    In the past few months I have been experiencing mood swings. The reason for these severe mood swings is that my father has been diagnosed with myelodysplasia. A rare disease that is only cured with a bone marrow transplant, but they will not do the transplant if you are older than 40 – 45. So there is no cure. If you want to read more about it go to http://www.aamac.ca/. Please donate blood at a regular basis and make a donation to Aplastic Anemia and Myelodysplasia Association of Canada or (http://www.aamac.ca/). You can find an association in you country by doing an internet search. By supporting research we can find a cure. Thank you very much.


    Now I will try to lighten things up a bit.


    My brother used to teach gym, now he has a bigger class…


    I went to the psychiatrist yesterday and I told him that my brother, Al, thinks he’s chicken. The doctor told me to bring Al with me at my next session, and he would cure him. I told the doctor that I would not bring Al in because I needed the eggs. (Thank you Woody Allen).


    In the first joke, for those of you who didn’t get it gym should be spelled Jim. Now do yo get it?


    That’s it for this week. Please leave me your comments good or bad, and if you leave a bad one just remember I know where you live and I have been watching the Sopranos.

      Wow! you are good. You know how to get me going, the information and the jokes are really good.

      Thank you for the blogs, I’m having a good time looking at them.
