Revisiting the Past

Well hello!  Welcome to post #2 of 2021! I’ve been crafting ideas and drafts of future posts for this blog, but I felt compelled to revisit past posts.  I’ve gone back and forth on whether I should archive (i.e. remove) some posts from public view if it doesn’t fit in with how I want to craft this blog for the future. For now, I’ve decided to leave things be. 

Below are posts that I especially enjoyed crafting. My fellow readers, if you have the time, I invite you to read (or re-read) some of the entries below.

Let me know if you’d like to see any of these topics revisited in 2021/2022. Also, don’t be shy about leaving comments in any of these older posts, especially if you haven’t read these until now!

Merging Two of My Favorite Things in One Post: Music and Football

CBS, Fox, NBC or the Mouse House: Who Has the Best NFL Theme Music?: Posted before the start of the NFL 2012/2013 regular season, I evaluate NFL theme music among the 4 broadcast networks. Potential for an update, as Carrie Underwood’s Sunday Night Theme could now be included, along with a new  poll.  Spoiler alert: I’d still choose Heavy Action as my favorite NFL theme song.

Thoughts on News Items I Read

Mailing Days are Temporarily Here Again: prompted by articles on the decline of physical mail, as well as declining interest in email and voicemail.  Posted 9(!) years ago, parts of it are still relevant yet I do think this one is a potential revisit for a future post.

How the CDC Can Help You Survive Your Zombie Wedding: posted in 2012 when the CDC was launching campaigns to raise awareness on emergency preparedness. Aw, simpler times.

Slices of Life

Abandoned Ideas: Name Proliferation Explaining how 15 y/o me thought I could become famous.

Peril on the 532: Recounting the day I was certain I would end up floating down a canal. Part of the Commuter Chronicles series I had created through this blog. I’ve long held an idea to craft a short novel detailing my experience as a public transportation commuter and this series was my way of testing the waters on this idea. This might be my muse should I decide to participate in NANOWRIMO this year.

Scenes from a Lunch Hour: Fun fact- I used this blog post as fodder for a sketch in a comedy writing class I took in 2013.  If I can find my work from that class (crossing my fingers I backed this up on Google Drive), I may share it here in future posts.

Fire Evacuation:  Glimpse into an eventful afternoon at work.

Photo Friday!

Shopping Cart Pirate Ship: I do believe this was my first Photo Friday. I started out with capturing quirky public art. This is what sparked an interest in photography for me.

Armed with just my cell phone camera, I found many interesting subjects for Photo Fridays. I then graduated to a Lumix digital point and shoot camera. That camera recently broke, so I upgraded to a Nikkon D5600 and will be taking classes in the coming weeks on how to use the darn thing. Bonus! I should have some fresh subject matter for Photo Fridays.

Dust Storm!: Alternate title for this could be Stupid Stuff I DId 10 Years Ago. I still can’t believe I sped ahead of this storm just to take photos.

Spam Comment of the Week: December 9

Nate is one dedicated Dish TV employee.  I’ll give him credit for that.

I don’t know how Nate does it?!  He works evenings and weekends yet has time to leave these comments.  I googled this guy’s name and email address and came up with similar comments, so I know this isn’t just some innocent, yet enthusiastic Dish TV employee trying to come up with a genuine comment. I’m on to you buddy!

NFL Music Poll Results

Hello there NFL fans.  At the beginning of preseason football, I posted a summary of NFL theme songs in CBS, Fox, NBC or the Mouse House: Who Has the Best NFL Theme Music?  This article has continued to receive visitors each week as others search for information on NFL theme music. As the NFL regular season is currently in Week 11 of 17, this seemed like a good time to close down the poll and post the results. Continue reading

Happy Autumn + NFL Music Poll Update

Happy autumn everyone!  In case you didn’t know, today, September 22, is the first official day of fall.  Despite the lingering warm weather, many of us have already been chowing down on fall flavored goodies and pulling out our light sweaters and other autumn gear for a few weeks.  Here in Phoenix we still have another week of 100 degree weather but by next weekend, the temps will be down to the low 90s. Woo hoo!
