Fly Bys

Well, technically, you only need two…

If you ever decide to visit northeastern Wisconsin, you might want to skip mid to late July. That’s when the EAA Airventure and Fly-In and Lifest take place and every hotel in a thirty mile radius will be booked solid. Oh and the Motel 6 in Oshkosh will charge $150 per night. That’s not a joke.

I’ve decided to take some time off of social media. There’s been way too much drama on Facebook lately and the “controversy” over the banning of plastic straws is angering me. Yes, I get it: it’s not a huge amount of plastic in the ocean. It only happens to choke sea life when swallowed. We also have alternatives and we can create other alternatives for disabled people. We can figure this out, just knock it off with the “it’s not a huge deal” bullshit. The whataboutism doesn’t help either. Do something, instead of nothing.

I had to quit following one of the blogs that I enjoyed. The blogger in question would post memes and that sort of thing. Most were funny but he’s been veering off into some rather conservative territory as of late. Last night was the final straw, if you will; the meme he posted said “If you have a dad, thank him. Your mom probably wasn’t even in the mood.” Yeah, that was over the line so I deleted his blog from favorites and most visited. My sense of humor is twisted, but that’s just gross.

As I was clearing out my browser history, I stumbled upon the address of my ex-friend’s blog. For the hell of it, I gave it a click. She’s deleted all of her previous posts and my blog isn’t on her blogroll. So that screed she wrote about me is gone but only because she’s starting some “brand new” life phase or something. It also took her over four years to get rid of it. It goes without saying that this is the last time I hit up her blog. The address has been wiped clean from my browser and I won’t be going back.

I have to work at 15:45. Another day, another dollar. At least it is at Costco. If I was still working at Wal-Mart, it’d only be a nickel, if I was lucky.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
