New Name, Bad Math, And Resuming The Usual Nonsense.
So where have I been? Would you believe that I came into possession of this ring and I had to take it to a mountain to toss it into a lava pit to save all of mankind from being ruled by an evil despot? Not buying that, huh? Would you believe I went on a walkabout? Gee, tough crowd. Would you believe that I had a writers block? O.K., closer to to the truth but not quite. I had a slight block but burn out would probably be a better term. One thing is I am a one-fingered typist and if I have a lot to say it takes quite awhile to get that done. I had considered leaving a post discussing this hiatus, but laziness won out. After all, why do today what can be put off until tomorrow. Then tomorrow never arrives.
So what have I been doing since last June? Let's see, I totally lost my mind. We'll discuss that tomorrow. I am once again single. That will be Friday's topic. If you have been here before you will notice that I changed my name. After I started blogging I realized that using my actual name was not the smartest thing to do. I had considered several times changing it, but as I stated before at times I can be slightly lazy. (O.K. What joker cracked 'slightly'?) As for Jinxo56, Jinxo was my favorite one-shot character from Babylon 5. He will get his own post. I have been using some variation of the name ever since I started getting on-line.
Another change here will be any mention of my employer. In past posts I mentioned the name. Now I will simply say my employer. If you would like a hint I work for the world's largest retailer. So why not just say ***-****? We were informed in a meeting about a month ago that an eye is being kept on social media. I don't recall saying anything extremely negative but why take the chance?
As for the future, I am planning on posting something each day. If I don't feel like typing something out, I will be posting a picture. Some of them I have taken and others I have found online. Sunday will be a song video. As always comments are greatly appreciated and if there is something you would like cleared feel free to ask. For better or worse I am back.
Yes. You in the back? What does the bad math in the title mean and what was that countdown for? When I quit blogging I had been very close to my 500th post. Since I usually do something special for each 100 posts I decided to have a little fun and run the count up so this would be post 500. The bad math? I miscounted and did not realize that this post is number 501.
