This hurts me profoundly on so many levels.
What if I make my wife scream Jesus Christ IN my bedroom?
That’s the best of everything, isn’t it?
You aren’t leading me anywhere. No one has ever led me anywhere I didn’t want to go. I have been forced into a few bad situations once I got there, but generally speaking the dumb shit I do has/is/will ever be my idea.
Ain’t no man leading me anywhere I wasn’t already goin. FFS.

GO DOVER PORN!
A year ago today, I decided to see if I could learn to tolerate running. Julie and I went to the track, and I nearly died on my first lap. After a couple hundred yards, I was cramped and wheezing and there was the taste of iron coming from my throat. I was able to walk/run a mile, but it was insanely difficult, and my legs hurt like hell for days after. I kept at it, though, and after a couple of weeks, I was able to finish a mile in under 12 minutes.
Since then, I’ve run a 5k and two half-marathons, logged 462 miles (since I started counting in September) of training, coped with a small army of injuries, and lost 25 pounds. I’m signed up to run a 10k at the end of September, and a 10m in November. Most importantly for my health, I’ve made exercise a habit again, after many years of self-neglect.
It’s been a weird year in so many ways. A good one, on balance, but one with major stresses and obstacles. You never know what’s going to save you from self-destruction, is what I’m saying, and during the last year, for me, it’s been this.

To blame the victims in this situation is not only dishonest; it is cruel and inconsistent with our nation’s promise to welcome the “tired” and “poor” of other countries, especially from hemispheric neighbors who are coping with conditions that are partially of our making. The accusation waged by many protesters that youthful migrants are diseased, and therefore, not “fit to be citizens” is a well-worn and specious claim that has been used against Asian and Latino immigrants for as long as they have been coming to our shores and through our borders. We need to strike a different chord, check such racist assumptions, and see the humanity in the people who are now coming to us in desperation. —

Sorry it’s from HuffPo. I like it anyway.
I must admit that I probably need to print this out for my fridge <3
I can do the thing.
I used to paint. Now I design enterprise software. I don’t know exactly what this means to me.
We are very embarrassed by the way our employee spoke with Mr. Block and Ms. Belmont and are contacting them to personally apologize. The way in which our representative communicated with them is unacceptable and not consistent with how we train our customer service representatives. We are investigating this situation and will take quick action. While the overwhelming majority of our employees work very hard to do the right thing every day, we are using this very unfortunate experience to reinforce how important it is to always treat our customers with the utmost respect. — Comcast Statement Regarding Customer Service Call
