I haven’t been in the mood to write anything lately. Like all of you I am still trying to come to grips with the shooting last Friday. I want to write about it but right now I have nothing meaningful to add. When something like this happens I spend my time trying to empathize with the parents of these children and think about what happened before I offer an opinion. Emotion is the enemy of critical thought and I don’t want to be like these idiots on twitter saying stupid, hateful things. I have seen people advocate the murder of NRA members and I have seen people using this tragedy to advance their pro-gun agenda. These are not serious people in my opinion and are simply making fools of themselves. I also saw one person tweet something angry and hateful to someone who had nothing to do with any of this and quickly got calmly bitch slapped by that person. In the end she looked like a fool and I don’t want to do that. In the future if I feel I have something worth saying I will write about it.
Instead I would like to focus on the past year and the coming year. It was a strange year for me. I started this blog and it has reached a level I never in a million years expected. I have made some great friends, incredibly bright women who love to challenge me and make me look stupid, I love that about them. I have read many books and been introduced to a life I didn’t even know existed. Because of this I have grown even closer to my wife. I have received e-mails that broke my heart by women who say things like “I wish my husband would have read your blog, maybe we would still be married”. I also received emails that said “You are a misogynist cocksucker and I hope you get cancer”. That was really uncalled for because I have never sucked a cock.
For the most part it has been awesome. This is what I want for next year:
I want to spend more time with my kids, not just time but quality time.
I want to surprise my wife, blindfold her and take her somewhere she has never been before, then drop her off and see if she can find her way home.
I want to sit on the beach during a rain storm.
I want to invent a new sexual position.
I have a 4 year old nephew I have never met. I would like to meet him.
I want to spend more time with my dad, I am not sure he has much time left.
I want to start watching more exercise equipment infomercials.
I want to do one nice thing for someone every day without them knowing it.
At the end of 2013 I want to call every one and tell them all the nice things I did for them that they didn’t know about.
I want to raise money for ovarian cancer.
I want to be more positive and stay away from hateful people and negativity. I have unfollowed many people on twitter. I am surrounded by ignorant people in real life I don’t want it in my online life.
I want to discover a new planet and name it Bob.
I want to avoid accidentally killing someone with my car.
I want to conduct a study on how useless studies are.
I want to get past the first level of Angry Birds.
I want to throw an eggplant at one of those stupid little bike riders who block traffic.
I want to see if I can convince my neighbor his house is haunted.
I want to help an old lady cross the street, I have never done that.
I want to stop stealing grapes. I didn’t know they were sold by the pound, I thought they were sold by the bag so I would eat them while I was shopping. My daughter finally pointed out that I was stealing.
I want to figure out how many grapes I have stolen and pay them back so my daughter can see.
I want to go to an airport and jump on the luggage turnstile to see where it goes.
I want to convince my wife that a young, hot sister wife would be benefit her.
In the end I want to spend time with the ones I love and to have a happy, healthy New Year and I want the same for all of you.
