So some kid threw an inflatable ball about the size of a grapefruit and hit Ken in the head. And I remember this plain as day. Ken had sort of "puffy" hair that just kinda stood up on it's own and the ball seemed to just bounce right off his hair. His hair did not move. At all. And he just kind of stayed in the same position and looked like he didn't know how to react.

I couldn't help but laugh. I don't know why I found that so funny but whatever it was about it just got me. And then I noticed he looked pissed off and I hoped he wouldn't do something so I apologized for laughing. After that, we started hanging out together for no apparent reason.
Also, for something that started out as not even an attempt at making a friend, he was one of the few friends I had in that time period that I was still on good terms with when I moved away from there. He and I were friends during the same time period when all those other people were bullying me. Of course he was no help in that way because he was not a violent person (believe it or not after what he did to that cabbage ). So he wanted nothing to do with that.

I had another "friend" in that time period named Roger who would just randomly go berserk and stab me multiple times in the leg with a pencil. I sat in the desk right behind him and he would just freak out and start doing that sometimes. I put up with it (I guess) because I had few friends and he was OK when he wasn't doing that.

Late in the evening I was snooping around on the computer at work. Was tired. Didn't feel like doing real work, so. We have folders where we can save stuff on. Public since anyone can look at them. Most people don't use them and instead save stuff on their remote desktop. Looked in one coworker's folder and saw her mom's death certificate. Ugh. So that's why she had a leave of absence for a few weeks this year. I heard a rumor her mom was sick but that's it. Age 65, ovarian cancer. Even had the gory details of cause of death.

My new(ish) car came with a month of sirius radio and they have a 90s channel. Sure takes this oldtimer back! I'm hearing songs I haven't thought about it years. I'll miss it when the month is up.

I pretty much stopped listening to new music sometime in the early to mid 90s (and wasn't really listening to most of what was out before that) anyway so I still have a lot of that stuff in a playlist and listen to it from time to time.

I saw my IRL friend on the weekend and most of the music she played was from way back in the 90s and it was actually kind of weird to listen to. I hadn't heard some of it in 20+ years. I do listen to old stuff, but mostly late '60s-early '80s. The rest of the stuff I listen to is fairly new. I don't think I can enjoy 90s music anymore because I was deep in the closet back then so I just associate all that music with a very false/unreal version of myself. The stuff I heard as a child, and the stuff I listen to now, doesn't have those associations.

The best things in life are free, but so are the worst things. And you need money to avoid those.

Its troubling a bit when people surrounding you are all a generation younger. Like even on this forum, most people seem younger than 30. I'm proud of my age though since mid 30s you've got some miles on by then. Not really a 30 something person in the head though.

It was my co-workers 32nd birthday yesterday and he was telling me about his wife and kids and how his wild days are long gone. Mentally I still feel like I'm 25 or so yet I'm 6 years older than this guy and am more convinced then ever that I will never feel comfortable enough to truly connect with another person. But, is that a bad thing? My genes just suck and changing them is impossible

It is sort of a mind trip, to think that every single particle that consists of us, is as old as the universe. When people state their age, they have it a bit wrong... we are all old farts. That fingernail you trimmed off, that thing is billions of years old dudes.. perhaps older, it could be timeless! After you trim it off, it will break down and eventually become something else, perhaps one day the particles of your fingernail will be part of a tree, or even wander off to another galaxy. We were all here, a part of us were here when the Roman empire fell, we were all here when dinosaurs wandered the lands.. we have always been here, at least everything that constitutes the matter that makes us.. "us"..

I know, it is all mindless and pointless to think about.. but I still find it interesting to think about.. and this is a random thought of the day thread.

Live and let live

I have the mind of an 18-year-old in the body of a 90-year-old. Life is a cruel ****ing *****.

I need someone to smack some sense into me and make me have sex with this gorgeous married woman.

A few days away from turning 40 and I am not handling it well at all. Most definitely having a mid life crisis plus winter (which I also don’t handle well) has decided to come super early this year so now my yearly seasonal affective depression is kicking in on top of everything else. Going to one of my favorite places on earth this weekend and not sure I will be able to relax or enjoy it.

Yeah. I had a a little collection going on. They were kind of controversial at the time. Banned in certain schools. Didn't realize they were making fun of Cabbage Patch Kids. Looking at some now I can see how they would definitely not be considered pc.

The other day I was cleaning out all my 'storage areas' in my apartment and found a whole box of Garbage Pail Kids stickers (or cards...whatever they were). Probably have a couple hundred of them.

You know your headphones are better than they need to be when you're watching a youtube video and someone is standing behind the person making the video breathing and you turn around to look back because it sounds like someone is breathing behind you.

Next year it'll be 15 years since the US version of The Office came out. And 15 years before it debuted was the year 1990. Crazy. It's interesting to think about time spans.
