Ogre’s Not Here

Okay, this temporary home was quite nice, I must say. But I’m done with it.

The new, permanent (as permanent as you can get with the Internet) is now easy to remember:


So come on over and say hello! Oh, and the theme I selected first is sort of dark. That’s the right place. It’s dark, but it’s awful clean…

Friday Feast #171

Yes, it’s time once again for the Friday Feast. This is where you get to learn a little more about your host, Ogre, via weird and random questions from the Friday Feast blog. So, without further delay, here it is:

Appetizer: What was the last game you purchased?

Hmmm… Well, since the question didn’t specify, I guess I have to consider any game purchased. I suppose the last one that I bought was, well… know what? I can’t really remember. I guess it would have been last year, before Christmas. I don’t think I’ve bought any this year. Maybe it was a Settlers of Catan expansion pack. That’s a fun game. You need more than two people, but when you get 4-6, it’s really a blast.

Soup: Name something in which you don’t believe.

Now I really try and keep politics out of the Friday afternoons. This is a time for fun. But I have to admit, my first thought when reading this question was political. My first thought was that I don’t believe Democrats have good intentions. But in keeping with the spirit of leaving politics out of the Friday afternoons, I won’t answer that way. Instead, I’ll go with the deep, philosophical thoughts: I don’t believe that man is good.

Salad: If you could choose a celebrity to be your boss, who would you pick?

Why would I want to torture myself? Most celebrities are good at one thing: being a celebrity. I can’t imagine how screwed up things would be if most of those media whores were actually in charge of, well, anything. I guess I’d have to pick some comedian — that way at least while things were really messed up, we’d all be laughing all the time.

Main Course: What was a lesson you had to learn the hard way?

That “easy” payments aren’t really all that easy.

Dessert: Describe your idea of the perfect relaxation room.

Anywhere without any whiners. Really.

So there you have it! Feel free to join in on your own blog, or even right here in the comments! Oh, and if you’re in a reading mood, here’s a few others who have joined in this week:

Friday Feast #170

Here it is again, this week’s Friday Feast:

Appetizer: What is your favorite carnival/amusement park ride?

The beer stand. What?

Soup: How do you react in uncomfortable social situations?

What is this thing called “social situation?” I tend not to invite too many into my cave at once so as to avoid such things.

Salad: On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy discussing deep, philosophical topics?

I’m not sure how “deep” politics is. It seems so obvious to me that government is evil, but many people seem to like government controlling their lives, so I guess I do…

Main Course: Did you get a flu shot this year? If not, do you plan to?

Oh, I do NOT want to get started on this government screw-up. Yes, again, this is a problem that government has CREATED while trying to “solve” another problem.

Dessert: Approximately how many hours per week do you spend watching television?

What is this thing called “television?” 😉 Well, okay, I guess a couple. I watch a little of football games and baseball games when they’re on — but I don’t watch much else. I try and catch House when I can, but I don’t get it every week.

Friday Feast #169

It’s been awhile since I did one of these. So here we go again:

What was your first “real” job?

“Real?” What, is any other thing I do for money “fake?” And I am absolutely NOT answering this because the FBI may show up to fine me for engaging in commerce without asking their permission.

Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity?

Um, here? Well, I guess maybe the Carolina Renaissance Festival… 🙂

Complete this sentence: I am embarrassed when…

Hahahaha! Really! Hello, I’m an Ogre. I really don’t get embarrassed!

Main Course
What values did your parents instill in you?

How to take over the world. No wait, that isn’t it. It was something else…

Name 3 fads from your teenage years.

Yeah, I have trouble remembering last week, never mind that many years ago!

This Site

Don’t bookmark this site just yet.  I’m just sort of playing around with it, trying to decide what to do and where to blog.  I might stay here, I might not.  In the meantime, however, it seems that I just can’t shut up, so I started posting here.  So many news stories just really bug me.  I cannot understand why I’m one of so few that actually see the incredible destructions of freedom in America today.  I can’t understand why there’s so few people like me who honestly want to be free — free from government and free from other people using government to force me to do what they want to.  It’s not about safety or the public good, ever.  It’s about freedom.  And there is no question that people should absolutely be free to be stupid.
