Well I guess it is that time again. I’m going to renew the site one more time and see where we go from there.
I just can’t bring myself to let https://aopinionatedman.com/ go and it become some online pine cone store. For the guy in the back that just thought… ‘what the fuck is an online pine cone store???’ Man… you just ain’t been living.
A blog is not a single post. A single post can get you famous of course… fame is such a loose term these days, but it can definitely accomplish that for normally the wrong reasons. A true blog paints a whole picture of what a blogger is or is becoming, or it should if a blogger is honest. Most bloggers aren’t.
I find it to be fun to own a website, in general, and call it your own. That’s what this blog is. Most people don’t think that is a big deal and that’s cool, they can have their opinion. Over there. The reason I still putter along over here is because a website never dies.
It only becomes an online pine cone store if you don’t pay the $150 to reup.
There are few places you feel secure. Home has many names and changes names. My home, where I live, is one of the only places I feel secure. With my family, with myself. It’s my castle against the world and outside, nothing matters. I can let whatever it is that is resting on my shoulders down and for me that’s a big thing. I’m not saying I have a perfect life in these walls, no one has that. But at least I have those I care about inside with me and I know those I love are safe. It’s a security I don’t take for granted when you’ve lived as I have.
What is up with so many places not taking Visa credit cards in Cali? I even had a clerk tell me “welcome to Cali!” when I mentioned it. Working in the credit card industry… this just baffles the fuck out of me.
The second one isn’t new really because in Florida they do the same thing.
Paying for plastic bags is annoying as shit though…
I’m sure it is more annoying to be a fish and get caught in floating garbage, but considering I’m not a fish… I wouldn’t know that for sure. I care more about the 35 cents per bag.
