Good Thing I'm Not A Blogger

It's been nearly three months since posting an update here. Yeesh-o-meesh. And to think bloggers do this everyday...and as it should be.

Needless to say, there's been A LOT going on since the first of May. Actually, most of it is a blur. So, let's hit some high points and see what I can remember...

====Broken Toe?====
Yeah, never a good idea to be sitting at a desk barefoot, whirl around to the left, and smack your foot into the side of the desk. Purple and red are lovely colors on the toe next to the pinkie toe. Not sure if I actually broke or fractured it...but it happened on a Saturday afternoon...had to take a sick day on Monday...hobbled a bit on Tuesday and Wednesday...and by Friday was feeling pretty normal.

====Crazy Work Stuff====
We've been undergoing research and tweaking and rebuilding here at WUSA9.com. Please excuse our mess, we've got some dust bunnies everywhere! Still doing the 7am - 4pm workday.

====Teaching Young Married Class At Church====
A new class started at church has been for young married couples. We have three in the class now. We're a few weeks old and looking to grow...it's been a blessing.

====MySpace====
I've started creating a little page in MySpace...and was considering moving this project over there...just to consolidate. Check out: http://www.myspace.com/webmonkeydc

====When 50 cents equals 25 bucks====
Yeah...when you slap a few coins in the meter hoping to get back before time's up, it's better to have 50 or 75 cents more...than to come back and hour after your time expired and have to pay 25 bucks. But at least one can pay online. Woo-who!

More to come...

NEA Is Full Of It

"When did you become some political?"

That question is asked of me routinely by random friends in various wording. Fact is, five years ago, before moving from Mississippi to the DC Metro, the extent of my political expressions were limited to voting in elections. I didn't discuss or write about politics. Frankly, I rather despised politics. These days, it's impossible to be a conservative and not speak up while living near DC.

Limiting the amount of political sharing on my Facebook page is a daily goal. After all, no one wants to only hear about one genre from someone all the time. Sadly, there's a lot of material out there that most of us shield our eyes and ears to it or have it spoon-fed by the the media instead of researching and forming our own conclusions. At least two people have defriended me on Facebook and several more dropped off my Twitter feed as a result of my conservative views. Their loss.

Some things simply must be shared. Such as the recent even…

Turtle Invaders Are Here!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zyrobotics, LLC for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's sad to think that some of you reading this have never heard of or played Space Invaders. Ah, the memories of playing that game at the mall arcade (something else long gone)! Sigh. Now, multiple game platforms exist and few games are more convenient than those playable via apps on your phone. With a wink at the classic Space Invaders approach, Turtle Invaders is a new app for younger children and children with special needs. I downloaded it and took it for a spin.

Risks Of Being Vulnerable

Being vulnerable can be so rewarding. It can also be horrifically disappointing. Stereotypically for guys, being vulnerable with thoughts and feelings is simply against a man's nature. It doesn't come naturally. Emotions are saved for when men are alone or to share only with spouses or best friends. I think of the Tom Hanks line from A League of Their Own: "There's no crying in baseball!" Anger seems to be permitted but not fear, worry, or tears. More often I've seen people apologize for getting upset or tearing up than for showing an angry or passionate reaction. 

The more reflective emotions seem to be reserved for women. It seems stereotypically more natural for women to be shedding tears or showing concern. Yet, too much or too frequent emotional displays can also bring scoffing or ridicule.

It's like there's no winning when it comes to being vulnerable. This is why being vulnerable is hard and requires intentionality. 

The reality is that being vuln…
