1. I found Colorado Springs quite enchanting when I was there. I would like to return. 2. My Micronic transistor radio. 3. Saccharine sweetened Kool Aid. 4. An Engineer 5. Dying before I lost my virginity. Enjoy.
I recently hit a milestone age that invites gifts of black balloons and gravestone-shaped birthday candles. As I get older, I tend to spend more time wearing a path down memory lane. While it’s easy to get mired in the past, I try to use memories in a constructive way…to inform and inspire my writing today.
Today’s Five Posts to Write Right Now are all nostalgia-based.
1. The place where you felt happiest or safest.
As a teenager, I loved riding in my friend Jack’s Toyota Corolla station wagon. We’d belt out songs from the Evita soundtrack on our way to a New Hampshire, summer-stock production of Man of La Mancha. Would you believe I wasn’t popular in high school? I remember the front seat of that car, with its cassette deck and broken glove box, in vivid detail.
If you had a time machine and could go back to any…
I’ll be attempting to up my YouTube video production in the near future on a variety of topics. I’ll need to lose my “Raging Moped” intro and insert something less moped-centric now that my Euro moped adventure is over. Get it while it’s still hot! It’ll slip back into my regular YouTube video list as soon as I do a new one to replace it.
One new topic I’ll be working up videos for is electronic smoking (vaping). These will document my move away from cigarettes shortly upon my arrival back to US soil. There are a lot of smokers out there who need the information I’ve acquired to make a successful transition to a safer nicotine delivery system. I’ll also be discussing my future tiny home plans as well as my “Pikes Peak or Bust” relocation adventure.
Once I start talking there’s no telling what else I might say.
Subscribe early and often. Cleaning out the upload backlog from Germany. Here’s a sample.
Obama is doing such a fine job that it triggered Rudy Gulliani into orchestrating a self destructive ego implosion.
Muslim miracle as huge fire fails to collapse one of their tallest skyscrapers. Is it a sign from Allah or just good engineering?
That lady who went looking to gun down that neighbor kid for pissing her off ended up getting gunned down herself. Awkward.
Some Nascar dude beat on his wife but there’s no elevator footage so he’ll probably be back to spinning around in circles in no time.
Apple is hiring up people and actually paying them what they’re worth which is causing their competitors considerable consternation. Beneficial free market concepts are rarely “trickled down” far enough for the workforce to partake of. Their former employers are gearing up to spend a fortune enforcing non-compete clauses costing millions that could have otherwise been applied to the workers before they bolted. Walmart was so spooked they cranked their pay knob all the way up to ten!
We should outlaw non-compete clauses. We’re a competitive society, not some hippie-lettuce toking, tambourine-circle banging commune-ists (exceptions: Colorado, Washington, Alaska and yours truly).
