I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

ice scraper!!

Lately parts of the U.S. have become overwhelmed with terrible winter weather. Weather, that perhaps residents aren’t accustomed to. Every day, in the morning, and in the evening as well, on the shows I watch … on my American broadcasts, I see people using a ten inch … maybe at best, a ruler sized implement/scraper struggling frantically to remove ice from their windshields!! This hardly provides the force needed to work effectively … not enough torque. Now, I realized these areas of the country normally aren’t hard hit in this type of weather … but still … don’t you want the best tool for the job? Even here, in Canada, we aren’t inundated continually with harsh winter conditions. And I still know to have the best scraper at my ready. I use a telescoping one with a brush for clearing snow that extends so I don’t have to. It also comes with a squeegee for my cleaning my windshield that ends up mucky and salty during the winter … something similar to this version. Now, that’s an ice scraper(said in my attempted Crocodile Dundee voice)!!

I’m not Jesus!! I will not forgive!!

When your own world comes undone,
Let me be the one to say:
(If God is looking down on me)

“I’m not Jesus,
You can’t run away!”

Do you remember me?

I will not forgive.
I won’t be whatever you wanted.
I will not forgive.
I won’t be whatever you wanted.

When your world comes crashing down,
I want to be there
(If God is looking down on me)

I’m not Jesus,
Jesus wasn’t there

You confess it all away,
But it don’t mean shit to me!
(If God is looking down on me)

I’m not Jesus,
I will not,
I’m not Jesus,
I will not forgive!

Oh, I will not forgive, yeah yeah!
No, I will not forgive!

I must be mental!!

It’s been a mild January, and I got it into my head to barbecue with my homemade hibachi again. It’s still a little project of mine, and I appear to be obsessed with perfecting it. I went to Costco, because I knew that they would have what I wanted (chicken wings) and at a good price. Then I went regular grocery store shopping for the remaining items, which included sweet potatoes (that I peeled, and hand-cut into french fries) and Danish Blue cheese for my dip along with a baguette and a few other things too. Now, while the temperature was agreeable, the day was really drizzly. It really wasn’t conducive for barbecuing. Fuck in the summer, I would never consider it if it was raining, or even with a possibility of rain for that matter, just because I have so many glorious, sunny days available. But, there I was in the backyard, crouching over my smoky hibachi, umbrella in one hand, tongs in the other. I kept wondering what my neighbours would be thinking if they saw me … hell, maybe a few even did. My guess is either danistrulytheman sure is devotedly passionate about grilling, or danistrulytheman is a fucking mental case!! Somehow, I suspect the latter.

humility: I covet thee

Certainly not one of my strengths. Not a virtue I’m naturally blessed with I feel … well, certainly at times at least. When God was handing out humbleness, I must have lost my place in line … so I strayed, I ventured, that’s always been me … who I am!! But I try, and I know people in my life help me!! I wanted to blog about so many people, friends, acquaintances, but I knew this post would turn into a short story, so I decided no to got that route. But, I will mention them in the future, one at a time, fingers crossed … hopefully!!
