Thanks to Jay at Genius Pending for coming up with his list and inspiring this one of my own. I don't even think I could create a list of things I no longer worry about because my worries never seem to resolve themselves. They just expand exponentially.
*When I calculate how little I sleep and try to equate that to actual years lived awake - does that change my chronological age?
*The cephalopod scourge. The Internet is nothing but tentacles and LOL cats. One I love and the other freaks the crap out of me. It's like it was designed that way just to bother me and me alone.
*Movies that are shorter than 90 minutes (and I am compromising there because 90 minutes is the absolute MINIMUM a movie's length should be) and NO ONE is talking about it.
*The exact conditions necessary for rain to fall. Its like I am a Fremen on Arakis.
*Ear and nose hair.
*Why having few real world friends doesn't bother me.
*My kitty' feelings (which is probably related to why I have no real world friends).
*Why I plan trips out of the house like I am going on some African Expedition. They have become EVENTS. I nearly hired a Sherpa the other day just to carry my groceries and fill me in on local superstitions and customs.
*Why things that I know to be true cannot be fathomed by certain segments of the population? I am speaking of issues in American government like their battle over health care. Are insurance companies REALLY more important to them than people or is it just because a black guy wants change?
*The fact that I got 9000 problems AND a bitch ain't one. Why they hell not? I am as charming and disarming as the next guy and I can dance and cook and know when to just shut my mouth and nod in agreement.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
