I have self-diagnosed Adult Attention Deficit Disorder.  I completely EMBRACE this.  Meaning, I hold multiple conversations at once.  Do 100 tasks at a time.  And let my brain zoom.  I’ve hired people that take care of the stuff I won’t.  Not that I can’t but I won’t. Because I embrace who I am and my passion.

Embrace your passion.  People listen to others, try to fit in, and hell don’t embrace their inner passions.  If you like garden.  Garden like a mother fer.  Teach people to garden.  Have the slickest yard on the block.  If you like to paint your face.  Paint your damn face.

Yolo, and all that sh!t.  It’s real people.  You only got one shot at this, and if you are good at something, get better.  If you want to be good at something do it.

And remember, in proverbs in the Good Book it states. Iron sharpens iron.  Man sharpens man.  So yearn for your passions and find those around you that can sharpen your iron and you sharpen yours.

Here is the song.

Sail.  By Awolnation.  Some would say this song is about giving up.  Or an excuse.  I feel he is sailing to greater heights.  Or he wishes he was different.  I think it is about embracing who you are.  No matter what.

Here’s the lyrics.  There’s not much to it.  Which in itself makes sense.  Keep it simple.

This is how I show my love
I made it in my mind because
I blame it on my A.D.D. baby
This is how an angel dies
I blame it on my own sick pride
Blame it on my A.D.D. baby
Maybe I should cry for help
Maybe I should kill myself (myself)
Blame it on my A.D.D. baby
Maybe I’m a different breed
Maybe I’m not listening
So blame it on my A.D.D. baby
La la la la la
La la la la la oh!
La la la la la,
La la la la la oh!
La la la la la,
La la la la la,
Sail with me


So blame it everything I do on my ADD and you will probably be right.  And that’s not only ok, it’s exactly the way it’s meant to be.

So let’s go with it shall we?

This video has been driving me crazy!  Like I randomly saw it on VH1 on a Sunday morning or something and now ti consumes my thoughts.  It’s cock fighting with stuffed animals and the care bear wins.  WTF!!!!!!!

Why will the Bucks always suck under Herb Kohl.  The G.M. came out after the draft and said he job was to develop talent AND make the playoffs.  THAT DOESNT’ EVEN MAKE SENSE!   TAKE LEMONS AND MAKE ORANGE JUICE!  This is called in business lack of mission.  What is the Bucks mission?  Yep, I have no clue either. Stuck in suckity!

Speaking of sucking bad the Brew Crew (bandwagon is empty, Wisconsin loves the Brewers when they win only.  Can we just all admit we are just Packer fans and the rest just fills the gaps?)  are on pace to lose 100 games.  Historically bad.  Only the 2002 team that lost 106 broke the 100 game barrier.

IMG_20130626_092920_210Drove through Oshkosh during Country USA.  I swear you actually feel the energy.  I am 20 years too old for that stuff…and not really my thing, but you got to love it.   Here was my one second summary of the event by a Kwik Trip in Oshvegas.

Male fathers in Wisconsin in the summer are clueless.  They are lacking clues.  I am talking fashion in the weakest sense of the word.  In the fall and winter guys do fine.  Fall we can wear camo and jeans, winter we have layers, all is well.  Summer?  We die in the fashion sense.  Camo hats.  Jorts.  Funny t-shirts we have had for 25 years.  Socks that don’t really do anything.  Crappy tennies or crappier flip flops.  Our horrible bodies don’t quite fit into anything.  We wear a sports hat.  That’s how we roll.  I swear we don’t even think.  Grab the top pant, the convenient shirt, the shorts that are close and the hat that is on the shelf.   Summer outfit complete.  Just take a minute to put a little plan together.  That’s all it takes.  And if you are close to 40 and have clothing from college, it’s time to go.  Just think before you dress.  Thanks.


oh wow.

I totally lost track of the Bachelorette this season.  What is wrong with me?  Not sure.

I thought I had more stuff, but that’s it.  post over.  blame it on the a.d.d.
