Suffering from a Lack of Life

Often times when I'm alone with my own thoughts, I find it hard to relax and just enjoy my free time without feeling guilty that I'm not doing something more constructive with my life. It must be residual guilt from my younger days as a student. Don't get me wrong, I find plenty of time to waste my time. I play an excess of video games, I watch hours of YouTube, I shop online for deals on paintball gear, and I browse Reddit like it's a second job. There are plenty of things I enjoy doing when I find some quiet time, but they all inspire this pervasive sense of guilt within me for not doing more with my life.

GOD: You fault me for my lack of intervention?

KEVIN: Of course.

GOD: Just a moment ago, you told me that God should let His children live their own lives.

KEVIN: In an ideal universe, even the most aloof and irresponsible deity would take at least some measures to stop his children from hating and killing each other...

Prompt: "Travel"

Ok, so tonight's prompt is "travel". This prompt kinda works because I've been rewatching the Lord of the Rings trilogy again, now that I got my trusty husband who can explain all the crap I missed the first time through, and Frodo "travels" quite a long way to get rid of the ring. Since me and Kevin don't really travel to places very much, because we are boring, cheap people, I'll just live vicariously through the Fellowship and write about their journey. The more I think of it, the more it seems like the Hobbits kinda got fucked in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I mean, a ring was given to each of the races, right? Except the Hobbits. They got nothing. Either ...

Last December, Diana and I held a Christmas party at our house. There was food, and drink, and a whole lot of merry-making, but the main attraction of the night was the gingerbread house competition. There were five teams in contention, and those of us who didn't participate took a vote on our favorite submission.

This here is a picture of one of my three cats, Madam Beasley Meowington. My wife, Diana, and I call her Maddie for short. Maddie has accumulated a whole host of silly nicknames over the years -- but we'll get to that in a second after we talk about her full and proper name.

Ok, so Kevin missed this prompt so I'll throw in a filler blog entry until he replaces it with his far superior writing style. This older prompt is "Favorite Winter Comfort Food". I feel this prompt is fairly easy for me compared to Kevin given my pickiness when it comes to food. I like about 5% of the world's food, so my options are pretty limited on a "favorite" food. I don't usually care for ethnic food since I hate spicy (bye Indian food), alcohol (GTFO, fancy places!) pho (nice knowing you, Vietnamese food) and coconut (see ya later Thai!). I'm not a huge fan of fruit, and the only vegetables I like are the carby ones. This knocks out quite a few Chinese and ...

The Secrets of the Soda Machine!

Kevin is much too lazy to write his own blog entries today, so I (his loving wife) will write a few posts for him until he writes his own versions of these this weekend. So for now, enjoy my horrible grammar, awkward wording, and lazy sentence structure! I can't really write about Willy Wonka since it's been years since I've seen the show and as a kid this movie had a really hard time holding my attention. With the exception of chocolate, I really don't like that much candy, so Wonka can keep his candy secrets. However thinking about Willy Wonka's candy making "secret" made me think about this new soda making machine we got for Christmas. I think soda is just a liq...
