one of my cats, butter, got caught being adorable and snoring (turn up your volume a bit to hear him snore 🙂
my cat, butter 🙂
i won a delonghi coffee/espresso maker (worth $200!). the sweepstakes was offered by bestbuy.com and i thank them from the bottom of my heart 🙂
won a velveeta sweepstakes. a box of “velveeta shells and cheese” 🙂
want to enter (and hopefully win) sweepstakes, too? click here for the best sweepstakes site i’ve found.
i used to enter sweepstakes (valid ones, not the scams) non-stop. then, after a run of not winning, i decided to take on other interests. well…now i’m back on the proverbial horse and, if i win, will post on my blog in the “winning stuff” section 🙂
here’s my favorite sweepstakes site. tons and tons of sweepstakes on the cheap! click here.
playing with someone else’s heart just proves that there is nothing in yours.
i felt left with no other choice but to write to jeff bezos himself. below is my email to him. i hope he sees it and still gives a damn.
(sorry, i spelled “ambivalent” wrong in the email 🙁
[UPDATE 8/30/2018] issues still exist. now amazon’s “executive customer service” has obviously grown numb to my recent (yet new) complaints. in the decades with them, i have rarely contacted them with an issue. when it rains, it proverbially pours i guess. am pricing all sites (walmart, petco, etc.) for products i regularly buy, as it seems i’ll be closing my amazon account shortly. this makes me sad. they used to be full of win and awesome and now that they rule the retail market, they stopped giving a shit it seems. they’ve lost control of the beast.
look at where he/she delivered my package in comparison to the other pic. i do NOT like their “uber” style delivery service. unprofessional idiots, thus far.
[update: 8/29/2018] they continue to give me problems. leaving packages in wrong area and now they’re LOSING my orders for delivery! i’ve contacted them, but they just don’t seem to give a crap now that i’ve complained numerous times about different issues.
[update: 8/30/2018] last package was a day late. new orders are saying 5 days to ship (from amazon, not 3rd party seller). ordering today misses the holiday, so wtf? they continue to breach our prime membership contract on 2-day delivery.
was poking around google and found this:
although he left us at 4 years old and i only saw him 3 or 4 times in my life. you’d think someone would’ve googled me and told me. a relative, the military…someone.
oh well…i guess now i know.
whatever your reasons for distancing yourself from me, i forgive you. rip, walter allen mcnulty iii (“Mac”). (july 12, 1942 – june 16, 2018)
[update: 8/11/2018] found my “aunt paddy” (his sister) and we’ve been communicating via email about dad’s death. she apologized for not contacting me…said she didn’t have any contact info for me. he didn’t want an obituary, so maybe this blog post is it. she was with him and cared for him until he went peacefully into the night. part of me is disappointed he didn’t contact me, but the other part is happy he had his sister there with him towards the end. just got his official death certificate in the mail, with that, i can get more info from the military…then i’ll update this post again.
[update: 8/29/2018] below is the permanent gravestone for my dad (credit goes to findagrave.com)
i’ve been a gun owner for over 20 years and this nc law is beyond logical:
“If there is no sign that they are armed, you may not shoot them. Remember, we have no death penalty for larceny or grand theft, regardless of the value of the item. In any situation where an intruder is armed with anything that could kill you, even a screwdriver in his hand, you can shoot to protect your life.”
so…i am woken up in the middle of the night by an intruder, i’m groggy, it’s pitch black inside the house, i’m assuming the intruder didn’t break in to play scrabble with us, i’m not turning on lights to keep the disadvantage equal, the intruder might have a gun/knife…but how do i know? by that time, i’m shot dead.
i think if someone breaks into your home, the burden/responsibility is THEIRS, not yours.
btw…i’m 100% in agreement of extremely strict gun reform laws, harsh background checks, etc., but i’m not for disallowing protecting my home/family.
i would never, ever want to kill another human being, but will if my life depended on it. i’d also make his estate or family pay for my therapy afterwards.
