The view from my front door

Don’t look now, but I think spring is here.

Charlie Sheen Quote of the Day

 “I’m tired of pretending like I’m not special. I’m tired of pretending like I’m not bitchin’, a total frickin’ rock star from Mars. People can’t figure me out, they can’t process me. I don’t expect them to. You can’t process me with a normal brain.” – Charlie Sheen

Another Creepy Facebook App

"Don't mind me. I'm just waiting for you to dump your boyfriend... or if he dumps you, that still works for me."

Well, Facebook had the good sense to shut down the Breakup Notifier app that I discussed earlier in the week.   But, it seems the creepiness of app developers knows no bounds.  Some young and amoral jerk has now developed a WaitingRoom app.  It works this way.  You mark a guy or gal your interested in and proclaim your affections.  They will be notified that you are waiting on their relationship to destruct.  If you’re lucky, your proclamation will ignite the downfall of their present attachment.  And bam!  Everyone involved is covered in the muck of electronic depravity.

No word on when or whether Facebook will boot this app, as well.

Updates on Kindle versions of my books

Kindle Version is Live

The Pure is now available for you Kindle readers.  I priced it at $2.99. In other words, it’s cheap.  The Kindle version of Land of the Dead will be available very soon.  I know this has taken a painfully long time.  I appreciate your patience and you persistently asking me when it will be available (That wasn’t sarcastic – I swear I really do appreciate it).

A 5-year-old girl on marriage – Is she right?

Out of the mouth of babes.  I’m posting this video for a couple of reasons.  One, I think it’s funny.  Two, I love this little girl’s confidence.  I wish I was this positive about anything at her age… hell, even my age.  Three, I was astonished at some of the comments posted by what I assume are men.  Some have actually found her comments sexist. I chuckled when I read the first comment and then I started seeing words like bitter, indoctrinated, man-hater, etc.  Keep in mind, the young lady wasn’t performing for her mother (as some have accused her of).  Her 12-year-old sister shot and posted the video.  Am I wrong as a man not to be outraged?  Granted, she’ll likely change her views several times over the years, but that doesn’t make what she’s saying any less valid.  What do you think?  Are these musings by a 5-year-old girl offensive to men?  BTW – If she were my daughter, I would add one piece of advice.  Don’t get married until you’re in your 30’s.  Live a little, kid.
