  • Jordyn Please Email With Me

    Jordyn, my baby, the little bubble of a girl whom I fathered intensely for as long as I could, you know we had fun making guacamole. We will instantly be friends. Please contact me. You can’t write anything wrongly and I won’t embarrass you with this blog. I feel a real charge when I read…

  • Born on the Unix Epoch

    Screenshot from: http://www.epochconverter.com/ Probably the only birth date and time cooler than yours and mine would be to be born on New Year’s Eve, 1969, at 6pm (in the Central timezone) or whenever the date and time would make you born at 0 in Unix time. Considering the number of Unix/Linux system installed around the world…

  • Happy Birthday, Jordyn!

    Happy birthday!  I hope you’re having a great day, today. Last night, I hatched a plan to buy you a gift and hang out at the mall during lunchtime hoping that you would eat there today. Then I upgraded the plan to me standing there with a sign that said, “Happy Birthday, Jordyn!!” and eventually…

  • Open New or Activate Existing Flex Window in Adobe AIR Application by Searching WindowedSystemManager for nativeApplication.openedWindows

    You have an Adobe AIR native application and you want to activate a Window for a particular mxml class if it exists or open a new one if it does not, right? For example: If you have a configuration dialog opened by a menuitem or a button, you don’t want to open another instance of…

  • Bean, Your Sweet Little Voice Rings in my Ears

    I still think of you, often.  Not too often, yet not enough.  At least, I never refrain.  I’m never sated, so I’ll never abstain. I’m not ashamed of my feelings. Your sweet little voice still rings in my ears. You’re the Bean.

  • Social Ups and Downs: I’ve fallen in love with Shawnee, Oklahoma

    Downs.OhOhI’mOh, The Downs. at Denny’s. The line above is a mistake caused by me not understanding the focus scrolling on my Android phone while I was attempting to add the “down side” part of tonight’s story.  I wrote the text below while I was waiting at Denny’s for my Bacon Avocado Burrito and hash browns.…

  • MENSA Peace

    Last year I took a MENSA entrance exam because I was lonely.  And then I felt bad about the whole organization because it might be about “Hey! We’re smarty pants!” and I shouldn’t enable that sort of thing.  I tried to find fault with the organization — their web people have some problems — that’s…

  • Completion Satisfaction

    Yesterday I heard Tater Salad, Ron White, telling a story about his friend, Dr. Phil (is he a doctor?).  He asked “Doc” for some advice for his son about building self esteem and confidence and Phil’s advice was that he should finish everything he starts. One of my mental hangups is that I seem to…

  • Of course, it get’s old.

    Of course, this gets old for me.  You don’t have to read it, but apparently I have to write it.

  • Control

    I read or heard somewhere that people frequently are unhappy to the extent that they do not feel that they are in control of their own lives.  I acknowledge that I’m unhappy because I’m in complete control of my life.  Past performance is said not to be indicative of future returns regarding financial investments, yet…

  • Dear Kristi Number One

    There is no dispute. We have not had a discussion, or traded any form of communication for nearly eight years.  You are the mother of my children, were my high school sweetheart, have been inspirational in the forming of business, are the creator of so many things, and you will not politely say anything?

  • Letter from Helen McMurtry

    While writing a blog post about Dr. McMurtry, my Introduction to Music for Non-Majors professor at OSU, I found out that he had died, so I wrote a letter to his wife accounting how much I loved his class. She returns this nice note (scan below). Here is the original post: http://abighairyspider.blogspot.com/2011/01/dies-irae-rip-dr-mcmurtry.html

  • End of Winter

    I’m sitting here at the end of my winter season, my internal winter.  Outside, it’s still summer, but fall is on the way and the fall is my favorite time of year. I stopped writing because I didn’t like to see the crazy.  Then I decided I didn’t like to live the crazy and so…

  • Zingo Calm

    How is it that I experience the previously mentioned calmness laying next to Zingo? Scrambled Eggs as chaotic as they come… Yet peace.

  • Fixing Zingo

    Zingo said she knows how guys like to fix things, but this cannot be fixed. I say that the challenge of gravity isn’t the falling, but the landing.  Love you, Scrambled Eggs.

    Planning to build this to notify thekids they’ve left the door open (again). From Time Delayed Door Alarm on Homebrew Technology, a blog by Chris Handwerker [KB1WKI] My cat likes to open the front door if we don’t latch it properly, which is often.

    My daughter, Jordyn, and my mother, Cathe Winett.

  • I am going back to the original

    I am going back to the original mission of making everything around me better, at least no worse.  I will clean where there is to be cleaned and I will improve electronics where I see fit.  This is my mission for I am a man. This crap about trying to adjust the way I have…

  • La la la la la la la la

    After July, it looks like I came within 13 cents of finally earning $100 on my six year mission to receive a check from Google Adsense. They don’t send you any money until it’s at least $100 which is the beauty of their system because, I’m guessing, that most websites never reach the $100 threshold,…

  • Fuck You, God.

    Moving won’t help me. Making more money won’t help me. Love won’t help me. Hate won’t help me. Peace won’t help me. Confusion won’t help me. I’m not capable of having fun. So what to do? I’m sick of being your bitch. Life isn’t a gift, it’s a curse. Hell is life. Fuck off, God,…

  • You Need More (than) Love

    All You Need Is Love by The Beatles Always Sounded Like a Communist Manifesto to Me It seems to say that you’re not special, but that’s okay, you only need to be you and do some loving. Q: There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done? A: You can do what others won’t. Q:…

  • Value of Life?

    The verdict in our system is always supposed to be about the evidence: proof beyond a shadow of a doubt. The verdict says nothing about the value of the life of the accused or the victim. Did OJ’s acquittal mean his white ex wife was a little less valuable to America than Simpson was?

  • Drug Update

    Currently DXM and nicotine free. Depression? 5-HTP? Still taking it, but jury still out.

  • Diane Holsey – Vision on a Bench

    By Nuttakit (click here for source) I was looking through Google for an image of a woman sitting on a bench, like at a bus stop, at night, with a stylish street lamp nearby, but this picture of a couple sitting on a little bench caught my eye. I guess the bench isn’t necessarily little,…

  • Diet of Beer and Steak, circa 2004

    Yes, I’m actually going to post this here.  No, it doesn’t help my situation. My fall-2004 diet of steak and beer and antidepressants really paid off when I made it to like 198 lbs… which I called 200. My monthly, 5-minute psychiatrist appointments at a brain-adjustment-facility documented both my growth in size and the failure…

  • Danielle, No DXM, Less Nicotine, 5-HTP, et alia

  • 5-Hydroxytryptophan

    Recapitulation of Red Wheel by Joe Winett(hack, yuck) I can see where the idea of producing more serotonin in the liver isn’t quite as cool as just keeping the brain from taking back up what’s already there. First day of 5-HTP experienced uncomfortable side effects of the digestive ilk. Tonight, my tummy did grumble once…

  • Serotonin Syndrome, not

    Have discontinued self medication with dxm to switch to self medication with 5-HTP. Otherwise, serotonin syndrome could cause much unhappy face.

    I’ve been living mostly on rice for the past few weeks because I didn’t work enough to buy much else to eat at home. I actually love rice. I also love vanilla.  There is a misconception that vanilla is plain when actually it’s one of the most complex flavorings we use in food. My favorite…

  • Rebuilding a life again

    Was sure a week ago that everything was hopeless and was making moves to make it stay that way… and, the didn’t stay that way, so… looks like I have to continue on rebuilding a life again.

  • The Day of Memorial

    Memorial Day, I guess, just has to be traumatic or dramatic or whatever.

Anyway, I’m presently locked into my room. Julie…

  • Dear Joshua!

    I can’t change the past, but I can certainly be a resource for you in the future. This is a picture of my penny bank.  My Grandma Winett kept it for me at her house in Kansas City.  She had a special one for each grandchild. This bank is my gift to you this birthday.…

  • Were the Avocados Good?

    This is an email I received this morning from the place where I ordered those avocados for the Winett-Brungardt family for Christmas… Although my order was like 2 hours late, so they arrived after Christmas, but I never heard how they tasted.  I never heard anything. I can understand just moving on… with the kids……

    At 12:30 this morning (last night) a switch in my head turned from negative to positive.  This is good. I need to do more writing. I’ve messed with putting ideas into videos. Oh! Today is Joshua’s birthday. The past is the past. Ok, yeh, I’m going to go ahead and write that I wish there…

    I worked a billable total of 2 hours this week.  I spent the rest of the time in my room wishing the world would stop making so many sounds.  Sounds trigger flits of anxiety in me when I’m playing hooky from work and the world. I repaired these black shorts with duct tape (don’t worry,…

    As mothers day approaches, I feel I’m a highly skilled loser. I intended to write “I feel like I’m a highly skilled loser” but instead I accidentally labeled myself. I hated listening to mothers day radio commercials today. None of my time is mine. I haven’t earned it. Night time is the only peace. And…

  • Hawaiian Kona Coffee is the Best on Earth

    This Hawaiian Kona Coffee is easily the best coffee grown on Earth. Although rare, you’ve possibly tasted coffee blends called “Kona” that are 25% Kona, but what you’ve tasted doesn’t even compare to enjoying a cup, or pot, or six pots of the real thing. Kona is hard to find.   I found it was…
