No telling what’s being thought of in the mind of a lunatic

So I got the thinking.

What is the most useful class I took in either high school or in college?

Please note I’m not talking about “class I enjoyed” or “class I learned a bunch of nonsense that has nothing to do with my role in the real world.” I have to be using the skills acquired in that class to help pay my mortgage.

Let’s think about college. Well that was a big waste of time. I guess a desktop publishing class or news writing class could be put down in this instance, but I haven’t been anywhere near the communications field for more than three years. Now one can say I still benefitted from learning the baiscs of PageMaker or Quark. One can also say I was trained in writing and story-telling, but this could be debated — especially after reading some of the stuff I post at this place.

High school? I took a bunch of general classes, but I must say the typing class I had during my junior year has done more for me than any other course I can think of. Not much has changed with the keyboard since then, and I ALWAYS benefit from being able to type 75+ words per minute.

With that said, I still haven’t mastered the numbers row. 😦

What a beautiful day. The humidity is nonexistent. There is a nice breeze. But best of all, there is no Heat.

Tee-hee.

The Dallas Mavericks won the NBA title last night. Here are/were my thoughts.

— It feels so anti-climatic whenever the road team wins the clinching game. Here’s another downside: The fans aren’t there to cheer loud and drown out Stuart Scott. Boo-urns.

— Before the game started, I made a comment that if the Mavs won I hoped Dirk Nowitzki would just walk off the court and not acknowledge the clowns who mocked his sickness a few days ago.

Dirk Nowitzki said Saturday that Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were “a little childish, a little ignorant” in a video that appears to show them mocking the Mavericks star’s recent illness.

Wade said he really did cough and turned it into a generic joke because cameras were rolling. He and James blamed others for trying to make a big deal out of it.

Imagine how hard I laughed when Dirk did just that.

And then imagine how much harder I laughed when I saw Chris Bosh collapse while in the tunnel.

I kinda felt bad afterward for laughing because I don’t have anything against Bosh. However, he was guilty by association.

— I LOVE the fact this series (in my opinion) turned around after the HEEL-tles were showboating during Game 2 when they had a double-digit lead with seven minutes left in the fourth quarter.

— I didn’t watch every moment of the Finals, but I did watch this game. Man, the Heat were playing tense. There were several possessions it seemed the ENTIRE TEAM was avoiding taking the open shot in favor of driving down the lane and passing to someone else so that person could drive and dish.

— With so many great players who just missed out on winning a championship (Karl Malone and Charles Barkley to name a few), it’s good to know that Jason Kidd and Dirk will have a title to their name.

I’m Not A Creep

leave a comment »

Little Annoyance #8947 that will eventually set me off the deep end: That little “creep up” motorists do at a red light.

Seriously, where does this extra space come from? I’m not talking about backups at a red light in which some motorists can turn on red and the line moves up by a few cars. I’m also not talking about when a motorist creeps up a bit at a stoplight in hopes of setting off the green-light trigger. I’m talking about that steady, inching up that sometimes happens at red light.

I refuse to move forward in these situations unless I have at least one full car length to move. And then my movement is swift and just; not this tentative “creeping.”

Sorry, but that’s how I, err, roll.
