Whats in a name

You know, there are a lot of things in life that we can’t control. I can’t control the weather or the way I feel when I stub my toe. I can get irrationally angry that I hurt my foot, but it’s not the doors fault, and I suppose you could say it is my fault, but it doesn’t change how I feel at the moment.

There are just some things in life that happen, that you cannot control, but it still upsets us. They are out of our hands, we cannot control them because they are already going to happen, but it still sucks. So when I get a giant envelope today followed shortly by a string of phone calls, I get upset. Why of course not, why would I order ten steel drums? I don’t know, but maybe if my name were Benny, I would be able to understand.

You see my jerk brother thought it would be a great deal to start this large contract with YBDCO, and  It's their faultapparently my information got put in instead of his. That’s what confuses me the most, is how wrong do you have to be to put my information in instead of his. I’m beginning to think he’s doing it on purpose to mess with me because there’s no way that I would order ten steel drums for whatever reason that may be.

something like thisWhatever, I’m not upset at him. I’m upset at Game of Thrones. I’ve almost finished season 3 and I just don’t know if I’m going to keep watching, they keep getting rid of everyone that I love. I’m so upset and a little bit traumatized right now. IT’s a great show I just don’t know if I can keep watching this. I love the show but the show does not love me back, and I don’t know if I should subject myself to it.

Anyway, I did end up starting DareDevil, and it is a pretty sweet show so far, lots of combat, lots of blood and that’s pretty cool. Not often can you really explore the theme and idea as you can in Daredevil and I keep hearing about his hallway scene but I haven’t got there just yet, but man am I excited about it. It looks like it’s shaping up to be a great show and I cannot wait to begin it.

In other news, the rest of my life is just going on as usual. My parents are still losing weight; my brother is acting extremely weird, and I’m still working at the comic shop. We are trying to see if we can organize for any authors to come in and sign or something, but it’s probably not going to happen, the only person available is Daniel Way, and I feel like the Deadpool fans there wouldn’t respond fondly to his presence.

enough with the locksmiths, please.

Someone thought it would be funny to bombard my phone with messages after last weeks post. Now everybody in the 305 Area Code, thinks that I am looking for a ‘miami beach locksmith.’ Their words, not mine. Every single time, and I keep saying that I want them to unlock their life!

I happened upon an interesting question earlier today that I think would be really interesting to expand upon. If you were walking down the street and saw someone and acknowledged them would you give them the first bump?

Like if you saw a random person and they initiated the fist bump I would neve My parents dietr leave them hanging, that’s just bad juju. I think it’s never a good feeling to leave people out, everyone wants to be part of something and that sort of inclusive reactions could help make the world a happier place. I think it’s a great idea and would like to start something to help that.

In other news my parents have officially gone off the deep end because they literaly sent me a picture of a meat sandwich. I don’t mean a sandwich in which there is simply bread and meat, but bread made of meat with meat in between. Apparently they deep fried steaks and then made a chicken sandwich out of it. It sounds completely bizarre but they assure me that it is healthy and that they’ve never felt better. I on the other hand received a sudden bout of illness shortly after the entire conversation.

My brother finally gave me a call adn told me where he was and I told him that I already knew becasue of the locksmith which contributed to him telling me that there are locksmiths much closer, to which I told him that I was very much aware of that at this given point in time. IT was good to hear from him, I’ve been feeling kind of out of whack lately in his absence.

AYUHlso, I’ve continued watching the Game of Thrones, it is a fanstastic show and I recommend everyone watch it. Wow, the emotional roller coaster that I went through in the last few episodes alone are enough to have me completely hooked. I mean it too, I am completely hooked on this show and I don’t know if I will ever be able to watch Lord of the Rings after this. IT’s just so human but so impossible at the same time.

What a fantastic bunch of chatacters to follow. I’m now completely team Danaerys, she’s amazing and a powerful female character and that’s refreshing on a setting that usually aims for monarchy and patriarchy specifically. But it also handles it in a way that doesn’t really ‘shame’ the viewer. You know how sometimes you feel bad for watching things because of,

A bizarre phone call.

So, I’m working today at my job at the comic book store, and I receive a strange phone call. I pick up, like I would because I get paid to and hear a scratchy voice asking “Did you call a residential locksmith?” I respond “No, I don’t think I’ve ever used either of those two words in a sentence ever.”

I look around, trying to see if there’s a snickering jokester, there isn’t. Just a lot of concerned faces and exposed buttcracks. So I retort “I’m sorry, who is this?” “Dallas Locksmith.”

“Do you know that the number you dialed is in Florida?” “No, I just know that I need to talk to a Mr.Atkins.”

“Barry Atkins?” “No, I’m looking for Benny Atkins.” “What’s my brother doing in Dallas?” “I don’t know; I’m just trying to help him get back into his house.”

Then he hung up! Rude. This is bizarre to me that my brother would move to Texas and get locked out of his place. This whole situation is weird. But, anyway, I hope is all good with him, I haven’t had the chance to call him, mainly because I’m lazy, and I don’t care that much.

kill him firstAnyway, I started Game of Thrones, and it’s pretty good so far, we’re following this guy named Ed, but it’s Ned, but his full name is Eddard. That’s probably the most confusing part of the whole series so far, keeping up with the various nicknames that people can have in this world. There’s one guy called Kingslayer, that one, however, is not very hard to figure out the meaning. He might be my favorite even though he’s a bad guy. It’s hard to tell on this show I guess. But, I’m only about half way through the season. Let’s hope that it gets good cause now it’s playing out as being rather tame so far.

srslyMY parents keep sending me pictures of steaks and then telling me how much weight they’ve lost so far. It’s all very confusing to keep up with so far, but it is pretty amazing that they’re losing weight while essentially disposing of the world of several cows a week. It’s just kind of a funny situation. I suppose you never can be too old to figure out new things to do with your life.

It’s made me wonder; I’m 28 right now. I remember how weird it was that I started to feel upset a few weeks ago, but now I just have such a about me. I just don’t care about anything. And I mean anything. I just like waking up and then coming here to the store. Oh yeah, I started typing these at the comic shop, I think one day I might end up taking a selfie of the place, so everyone knows what’s up and what it looks like.
