A tornado touched down in Overland Park near my parents. Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in the Midwest!
Stop reading this blog… Seriously, stop reading. Surely there are better ways to spend your time than reading words of a has-been hack that really has nothing important to say.
Wait. You’re still here? Um, okay… Fine…
Surely you can think of something better to do than sit in front of your computer…
A nice walk in the park… Conversing with someone you love. Maybe checking out a museum or learning a new language…
BUT, if you are going to read my blog I propose a challenge to you… Do nothing else in the time it takes you to complete this post. Do not check your email, answer the phone, or go make yourself a turkey sandwich. Be PRESENT… Truly present…
I AM AN ADDICT…
I have something I really need to get off my chest… I am an addict…
I like to pride myself on being proactive… Both in my career and my life… however I have been anything but proactive when it comes to my blog.
I guess I get overwhelmed with how many thoughts I have in a day and instead of just focusing on ONE thought and blogging about it, I shut down.

There are those out there who will argue YOU CHOSE THIS, so stop being a whiny little bitch, and take it like a man…
Ask anyone who knows me, and they will tell you that I am a bit of a recluse. I am not a big partier, nor do I bask in the Hollywood scene… In fact, I am not sure I thrive in any scene… I am a hermit. I love my house and my creature comforts… I love waking up in my own bed, and making coffee in own kitchen… I love sitting out by the pool, or watching a movie in my man cave. I prefer spending time with my dog and my wife over most people.

For those of you who have been to Comic-Con, I need not tell you how exhausting and overwhelming the entire experience is.
It is a celebration of all things… well… cool. Comic books, horror movies, big summer blockbusters, toys, and let us not forget scantily clad Princess Leias.

A few days later, the movie is released on DVD. (preorder it here)
