I Was Thinking About Something Else

That pretty much sums up my life nowadays. I will be doing something, walking into a room or driving, and I will go askew. Someone will inevitably ask at that same moment, "What are you doing?". Which will confuse me and I can only respond, "Yeah, well...I was thinking about something else".

I am trying to find my way

Through this new template. With the changeover I lost all the "blogs I read" etc., type things. I do not remember the HTML to do these things as I have been weaned away by the simplicity of facebook, which is really plug'n'play. I am confident it will comeback or I will figure it out at some point down the road. It is so time consuming though, and I really came back to the blog to just write. Moving forward.

I am tired of hearing about fat people.

Someone I know posted on her facebook page, an article from a feminist blog that concerned a woman who was kicked off the exercise equipment at a women's only gym. She was kicked off for being overweight. The slant from the blog was that there was yet another occasion where fat people were shamed.
I say no. The article mentioned that the woman was offered an aerobics area to work out in or a refund of her membership fee. I say the gym was right. I say the gym protected itself from a lawsuit and protected the woman whose health could be at risk on gym equipment that her body is not ready for. Which is why the alternative aerobics area would have been offered. The fat body needs to be prepared and eased onto gym equipment.
It really frosted me that this, and I do not want to single out this blogger because this does not happen often, was brought under the umbrella of slights against fat people in a sweeping generalization. And anyone will tell you I really hate sweeping generalizations.
I had more but I cannot think of what it was now. I am just so tired of hearing about fat people.

It must be the barometric pressure

A study in the early 1980's found that school age boys would be much more difficult in class when the barometric pressure was low. I found today to be a pretty good day and I did not feel like misbehaving at any point so the barometric pressure must have been good.

New Name, Old Management

This is the first post under the new name.
I have been away from blogging for a long time and I hope this will be the new name/new blogger writing and not just typing. A few things have happened since I left blogging. Made some new friends and reunited with old friends (how I really missed old friends), and I think lost some friends.
I want to move forward from this point rather than dwell on the past and what happened while I was away. Maybe I will have the past pop up occasionally as an amusing anecdote. Maybe not. I want a Pulitzer prize. The real deal. I am writing a play to achieve that goal. I hope I start to write betterer, or I can kiss that dream adieu.
I am starting to think now, why do I want to blog. There is essentially a not small group that I do not want to read it, which is so restricting. One needs a place to express their ideas though. Come heck or high water, or the opinions that were not asked for.
Back in the saddle again.
