Time Capsules can take many forms
Time Capsules can take many forms. Just today I found in my wallet a Starbucks card and a $25 gift card for Albertson’s and other stores which I got on my birthday a little less than a year ago. At the time, the card was cool but I didn’t know of any Albertson’s in my immediate area. So I just kept it in

Things are going very well lately. There’s a new song coming out in less than a week. Also I’m going to get new tires soon so that will increase fuel efficiency.
I’ve switched to journaling in my hardcover books. It different. But this is still good. Things are moving so fast lately. Not me exactly, just the world. I feel like I’m at a steady pace. Around normal speeds.

I just got an old computer out of my storage unit. It seriously is so much fun getting it working.
Here’s what’s been going down.
The computer only has a hard drive, a built in ethernet card, an old-style modem, an onboard video card and a some USB ports.
Fortunately, I had an extra keyboard and I managed to snag my USB wired mouse from my work-bag.
I bought a

I can see in the dark…not because I’m an elf or nothing. It’s because I finally got my new computer. I had to save up for a long time. But it is here. And it has lights on it. Red lights. There is an off-switch that makes them turn off and on.
I’ve been able to transfer all my data to this new computer. It took

Compassion is a good word. There are many dimensions to it. The obvious one would be feeling sorry for someone when they are not doing well. This could be due to illness or stress. But I’ve found a form of compassion in everyday life that has serious benefits. And that would be feeling good for people when things are going well for them. This is may seem completely obvious on

Hot Dog Regret
I’m not going to disclose the hot dog manufacturer who produced these monstrosities. This is because overidon.com is not a website about negativity. But this story must be told. Today I was on my way to the gym and my mom got home from Yoga. I told her I was going to leave and she begged me to cook her some hot dogs. Since, I was

Someone once said:
“The best things in life are free.”
Ice cream is not free.
Ice cream is expensive.
Earlier today I was trying to find Sumerian text translations. And I remembered that I used to have a bookmark for such a site. But since my old computer crashed, I no longer had them.
I searched, “sumerian” in the search box on this very website and I found a few articles on that subject, including an article I wrote on an Electronic Text repository of such translations. I followed

I thought about writing a joke about search engine optimization, but I decided against it because would’ve been too META.
Finally, I’m going to see Thor. I’ve been wanting to see this movie for a while now…wonder if it’s going to be cool or not?
Priest was good. I guess I need to stop worrying about the leading chain to the sequel thing. I shouldn’t take that so personally. I seem to regurgitate the same conversation about how films are setting up for the sequels. But in reality I don’t

The best follow up to a nice steak dinner, is a hot, whole-milk latte. The reason for this is because steaks are very heavy and they tend to make one want to turn into a monster. So the best way to compensate for this is to drink a big latte. Lattes have caffeine and so they counteract the heaviness of the steak meat. In fact, I already drank a whole

The funny thing about surface streets is that they sometimes connect entire cities together. There is nothing more disconcerting than driving in a relatively straight line and realize you are going the wrong way by noticing that you have entered an entirely wrong city.
In the movie, “Conan: The Barbarian” the title character became very strong. He eventually turned into a powerful gladiator and warrior. But not everybody remembers why or how Conan became strong. Remember, Conan was just a boy when his parents were killed by the Serpent Wizard. When he was a boy, he was very small and fragile. And he had no muscles that were like the adult
