A little over 2 years ago I was standing by the front door of my place of employment.  A woman walks up to me and says, with a very Italian accent, “May I kiss you?”  My first thought was, HELL NO!!  And then I looked into her eyes and saw tears.  Something about her touched my heart.   (more…)

I was really hoping my first movie review would be of a great movie, but I was sadly mistaken.  I saw The Apparition today with my best friend.  We both love horror movies so seeing this movie seemed like the perfect choice.  Unfortunately, 10 minutes into the movie I found myself making fun of it more than enjoying it.

Growing up I didn’t have many close friends.  I had people that I hung out with and called friends, but I never felt close to anyone the way I feel with the friends I have right now.  They all would do anything for me and in return I would do anything for them.  When I lost my brother I really didn’t tell many people about it and yet so many people that really didn’t know Scott showed up to support me.  If I didn’t know what a true friend was I definitely knew after that day.

Just about everyday I am asked a question that basically rips my heart out.  Its a question that I usually try to avoid and when forced to answer, lie about.  I have been dodging it like the plague for almost 5 years now and I am done running from it.  Well before we go any further, I suppose I should tell you the question.

This weeks DOW is someone I have been thinking a lot about lately.  They have been talking crazy shit about people for months now and doesn’t seem to have any plans to stop.  I have always tried to be the kind of person that calls people on their shit, and for that reason I have decided that this week douche will be none other than… (more…)

Today was an interesting day to say the least.  It seems all of South Florida thinks that this storm will be the end of the world.   Maybe it was my lack of sleep or maybe I was just tired of people acting like assholes, but today everyone seemed to piss me off.  Here are some examples of said people.

I am coming up on my 2 month (9-8) anniversary for Talkin’ Shit.  It has been a great 2 months and I must say that I have had a lot of fun sharing my rantings with you all.   I have written 54 posts and it amazes me how many views I get on all of them. (more…)

With the recent formation of Tropical Storm Isaac in the Atlantic people here in South Florida have already started dashing towards their local stores to buy mass quantities of water and canned foods.  Now I am all for preparing for a storm but when said storm is only expected to be a possible Cat-1 when it may or may not hit Florida I see little reason to panic.  Yet here we are days before its in our area and people are scurrying around like scared mice.   (more…)

I had made mention a while back that I have a book of poems I started writing about 14 years ago.  I was encouraged to share and although I didn’t think they were worth read I decided to throw caution to the wind and share one with you all.  So without further ado, my poetry debut… (more…)

Considering my last two posts, this week’s Douche seems to fit right it.  I work in a business that among other things offers  carpet cleaner rentals.  We do not own the machines themselves, but rather act as a third party for another company which means we have to adhere to any rules and regulations said company puts in place.
