TOTD – Starving is an Option?!

Disclaimer: This is, in no way, meant to distract from the real problems of eating disorders. And I truly applaud those who are willing to admit to their struggles in order to help others in similar situations.

But the bastard in me has to add…

Thought of the Day – Starving is an Option?!

by Senator Brett

In an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine for their September issue a star of the television show “Pretty Little Liars” opened up about her recent struggles with an eating disorder. I don’t know about you… but I don’t really trust her. On the other hand… she looked great while talking about it! 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 – Spare Change Equals One Ticket?!

Thought of the Day – Spare Change Equals One Ticket?!

by Senator Brett

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that homeless people could get more creative with their panhandling? I mean, I think it’d be great if homeless people went to the mall with a bunch of raffle tickets and stood next to the escalators with a sign that read Continue reading

TOTD – The Golden Death?!

I saw a commercial the other night that inspired this…

Thought of the Day – The Golden Death?!

by Senator Brett

So… Golden Corral has now added a chocolate fountain AND a cotton candy machine to it’s already over-the-top-here’s-your-heart-disease buffet lineup… which makes me think…

Golden Corral should get a tax break for every person that dies in their restaurant or shortly after eating at the establishment: $5K for anyone that dies waiting in line to get their food… because we all know that waiting causes the heart a great deal of stress, $10K for anyone that dies mid-bite… uh, because chewing is an exercise, $15K for anyone that dies after leaving a Golden Corral 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

Dear God, It’s Me, Senator Brett!

Disclaimer: Wrote this all in one take. No editing, very little proofing. Paige, my editor, said to just go with it and she will edit it later… like somewhere in 2013, or when the earth fades into the sun. So, enjoy…. Oh, and if you want, make a fun game of it… “Find out How Dumb and Fast Mark Types by Counting All the Mistakes and Putting Them in the Comment Section. Also, I hope, HOPE, that this essay starts conversations. Blake Powell, looking at you! EM… my dear… it would be a shame if you weren’t yelling at me, or near me, for some reason. Felina, come on, where’s the Palin in ya?! All of my Mathews family should be making beautiful funny asses out of themselves by now! And, Adrian, my Adrian will be sitting with me protecting me. But, please comment. Please, follow the blog. Please, like the FB page. Please, send chocolate dark chocolate chip cookies to… 🙂

Years ago I attended a small Bible college inDallas,TX. From the very beginning I was not their “typical” student… and it was painfully obvious. However, I did learn some there, and I hope that a few people learned from me as well.

The one thing that happened was that about two weeks into the school year 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!

by Senator Brett

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 – Your Late Cinco de Mayo Version!

As per my usual… I apologize to everyone I will offend with today’s TOTD. But, in all honesty… I’m over it already!  Because, I’m mostly Mexican… not Hispanic-American, just plain ol’, good ol’ Mexican! True, I am probably more white than most of y’all. I grew up “gringo!”… and not like “Texas Gringo” (even though we lived in Cut N’ Shoot, TX… no, like white white… the people who adopted me were the shade of white that is like “hide from the sun, it may kill us” white!) But, I still reserve the right to make fun of my own people… ALL of my own people, whites, Mexicans, rednecks… and even blacks, or African-Americans… depending on where you went to school!

I once read that spicy foods are one of nature’s more powerful aphrodisiacs. At first I thought that this information must be a huge mistake, or maybe just a joke.

But, it got me thinking… Continue reading
