One of the blogs I follow religiously daily is by a self proclaimed Idiot. And he is coming to Canada where all our Canuck Idiots will immediately be put to shame, hang their heads and genuflect before his greatness. I figure most of you already read him, but just in case I have gotten his permission to introduce him. What I really wanted to do was reblog him ‘via’ but for the life of me cannot remember how so have to resort to copying his link below. And I don’t know how to do those classy little links where one word leads to his site, so bear with me. I can only hold so much techie stuff in my brain at one time. Well I can only hold ONE techie thing in my brain at one time.
So what does a successful idiot look like?
First he is Texas my fav state
He has over 1 million hits on his site…hard to believe there are a million of us with such good taste.
I have copied a little of his About here, and his link. If you read only one thing today..except me of course..I recommend this!
I am a 40-Something Father of three, married to my lovely wife for nearly 20 years. Two of the 3 kids are grown and have left the nest, so it is now just myself, the wife, the youngest kid, and two obese cats left in the house. We live in a tiny lakeside town in North Texas. I have been disabled since 1999. I used to be tall, skinny, and have a glorious mop of red hair atop my head. Now, I am the spitting image of Santa Claus. I ran three marathons when I was in High School. Now, I get tired walking between the fridge and the couch. I am probably the only guy on the planet that has enjoyed careers as a Military Intelligence Analyst, a Nurse, and a Cave Guide, all before I turned 33 yrs old. I love anything and everything to do with the 1970′s and 1980′s and try to resist much of the new technology that controls our lives. I have never sent a text message and have never tweeted, been tweeted, or attempted to tweet anyone. I have cheapest bare-bones cell phone left on the planet. My ring-tone is “Funkytown”. I have a 8′ high bookcase full of TV Show DVD’s and all of them are shows from the 70′s and 80′s, with the complete series of Seinfeld thrown in for good measure. I idolize George Costanza. I have a short attention span and am easily distr…ooh look..a kitty… distracted. I now enjoy life as best I can as a stay-at-home Dad and Househusband. I have always had a very warped and disturbing sense of humor. Even with the stresses involved with being disabled, I best deal with life through humor. I have always loved to write, though if you read through enough of my posts, it will be painfully obvious I have had no formal instruction in the medium. I love Dave Barry. Actually, I should rephrase that, I love the man’s writings and humor, and swear I do not have any physical attraction to the man himself. (Getting real awkward already…) Like Dave Barry, I tend to take little nuggets of reality that happen to me or my family, and then I take the premise and warp it into the greatly fictionalized mess of malarkey that you will find on these pages. Most of what I write about has some tiny little sliver of truth in reality, the rest is pure rubbish. As to what it is real and what is not, I will leave that to your imagination.
