I Truly Did Not See This Coming

Seriously.  I really didn't.  But then, I really didn't see the wedding coming and for that matter had no idea who these people were or what they did with their time.  Research revealed that there truly isn't much of anything they do with their time.  I still don't know who they are.
However, our FaceBookFriend contributor - always with a thumb on the social pulse of the country - has summed up the situation in his usual succinct manner.
Read on.

For Those Who Care

I’ll put this as delicately as possible: The sacred institution of hetero-marriage is, once again, begging for mercy at the receiving end of another blessed and fully-sanctioned, albeit bloody and completely predictable, “irreconcilable” bludgeoning. Taylor Lautner’s roided-up doppelganger has been served divorce papers 72 days after his grotesquely ostentatious betrothal to butt-buggled nut-rest, Kim “Does-this-look-like-a-rash”ian. Try to contain your surprise.

Too Good To Be True

I get Google News Alerts about Amelia Earhart because, frankly, we just can't let go of her story.
Here's the latest alert.

Amelia Rose Earhart is a namesake and distant relative of the original Amelia Earhart. She is a private pilot, flying the Cirrus SR-20 at Independence Aviation at Centennial Airport in Denver, Colorado. She is a reporter at KUSA, the local NBC affiliate where she reports on traffic and breaking news. Amelia has worked as an aerial reporter and HD Cineflex camera operator in both Denver and Los Angeles where she covered everything from police chases to wildfires. Amelia is now a student of Meteorology at Mississippi State University and will be certified by the National Weather Association within the next two years.
Amelia’s life long goal is to retrace and complete Amelia Earhart’s 1937 round the world flight. She is currently working on her instrument rating at KAPA. She plans on embarking on her trip by the year 2016.

While this distant relative might complete the flight, will she wait forty years to keep a promise?

Not unless she reads But This Different and finds out how its really done.

No More Ice Cream Cones For Me

I've been trying to cut down the level of stress in my life and so from time to time I am able too identify a specific source of stress and then I address it.
The source of stress doesn't have to be a major part of my life but every little bit helps.
Once or twice a year I like to have some ice cream.  Actually, I'd like to have some ice cream once or twice a day but I really to get it that such a habit would not, in the long run, be positive in any way.
So for me ice cream is a very occasional treat.
You might reasonably be asking what I find stressful about this behavior.
Ever try eating an ice cream cone on a hot day?
Talk about stress.
Buy it in a cup or dish.  If you must have a cone, get the cone separate.
See?  You really can reduce stress in your life.
I am wise beyond my years.
