The Great Wolf Hunt of 2012!

Well, this is the beginning of a new category for me. Well, let me start over… this is the beginning of me posting entries on activities that I have been doing for years. Yeah, that is actually more accurate.

Last night, while not being able to sleep for the 100,00th time I happened across a posting on my Facebook Feed concerning the hunting of wolves. Now, for those that don’t know… I’m a huge wolf fan. Also, I am huge fan of sarcastic comments. To be honest if I could find a sarcastic wolf I would probably devote my life to finding a way for it to live forever.

Most of the comments for the photo were against the hunting of wolves. However, there were a few people defending the practice. And, while I know that I don’t know everything about the subject, I decided that it was posted on Facebook… so that means that knowledge Continue reading

TOTD – “011011001” in Spanish, Of Course?!

Disclaimer: I’m Mexican… so I’m allowed to say whatever I want about my own people!

I’ve noticed that I rarely can wait for a movie or album to be released on their scheduled dates. Oftentimes, I find myself watching the movie, or listening to the album, from online site. The other day I was Continue reading

TOTD – Parental Discretion is Advised?!

Okay, look… I know… I know… I need to develop a different sense of humor. For some reason, no matter what I try, my mind always leads to the sophomoric and low-brow. It’s where my brain lives, apparently. I promise to TRY to come up with clever and funny things that are wholesome and good, and I promise that I have been trying… it’s just not working out very well. At all. 🙂

Also, I think I will start posting videos in these entries with songs that are kinda blowing me away at the moment, or that I stumbled across and love, or… just songs that I have always loved and think that you should listen to because I said so. So it is written, so shall it be. 

And since I’ve been largely absent these last few weeks I am going to give you two TOTD’s. I know… I know… I am a giver! It’s just that what I am giving is usually not something people are interested in… like Chia Pets… or Libertarians. 🙂

Lastly, and this is MUY IMPORTANTE (which, as we all know, is Spanish for “superwichtig”)… the following TOTD’s Continue reading

TOTD – Happy Freedom Day, Aliens!

Okay, this might be a little lazy, but the truth is that I am reposting this for a specific reason. There have been only a few times in my life that I have experienced racism. Actually, I can only recall one other incident… and that was from a cop in Florida who insisted that I was a drug dealer, or had drugs, or was on drugs, or was thinking about drugs… and who had pulled me over for no other reason. Couldn’t even give me a ticket for speeding, but kept me there for a little over half an hour waiting for me to confess. (After the search I met my friends at Waffle House, ate a hearty breakfast, then went back to our campsite and got WAY baked… and then had a wonderful day at the beach! :p )

But, on Monday, at the hospital, I saw blatant racism against Hispanics, in general… and it really pissed me off. I will explain it all sometime soon when I share the entire story (which will be hilarious!). Don’t get me wrong… it was not from everyone on the staff… there were/are some great men and women (mostly the women) that were very helpful and that were actually concerned for everyone. But, there were two bad apples (sorry, male nurses) that actually shocked me because I have been so sheltered that I have never really seen, or heard, true racism.

I really would like everyone to watch the video at the end of this TOTD. It sums up EXACTLY how I feel about this issue. I cannot think of a better way to express my thoughts… so I am sharing this… again. All I ask from my friends, and family, and people reading this (who I consider “friends” now) is to be thoughtful… to think… to mull this issue over in your mind… and no matter the outcome of that… at least there has been a willful thought process… and that is all I want.

Oh, and if you enjoyed this, if it made you laugh, or think, or even want to use the restroom… please, follow the blog, sign up for the email, and “like” my Facebook page. When I get to a 1,000 followers and 200 “likes”… they give all my fans a free car of their choice. Honest to God… I would not lie to you about that! (Disclaimer: Senator Brett is like all politicians… therfore… a HUGE liar!)

Thought of the Day – Happy Freedom Day, Aliens!

On today, of all days, may we internally remember that while our country is so divided on so many, MANY, social and political issues… if our spirit is good, our minds are clear, our eyes are awake and our books are laid open and used… then we, as one nation, can accomplish so many great things. Happy 4th of July, everyone.

Although, to be fair, Continue reading

TOTD – You’re in Peru, Now Go!

Thought of the Day – You’re in Peru Now Go!

by Senator Brett

The other day someone asked me what I would do if I won the Texas State Lottery now that it was up to $119 million. After some thought, I decided that after the usual things people would say they would do: dream house, dream car, travel the world, charity, pay to be flown to the International Space Station… what I really want to do is take my awesome little brother, Cob, to Vegas for a “no holding back” weekend of gambling, shows, gambling, fantastic food and wine, gambling, gambling… you get the picture. But, Continue reading

TOTD – That Ain’t Chipotle Enough For Me!

I wrote this when I lived in Dallas. And, as always… I apologize if this offends anyone. I seem to say that a lot! 

Thought of the Day – That Ain’t Chipotle Enough For Me

Occasionally, on the way to work I will pass by the Latino Cultural Center of Dallas, which in it’s simple, rustic orange exterior seems like a fine building in itself… but it always leaves me thinking… “Hey, shouldn’t this building be about seventy-five different bright colors? Shouldn’t there be Continue reading
