On Hiatus–Yet Again

Posted by OrdinaryJoe - March 15, 2020 - Features, Writing

This post is on hiatus again. I am not going on spring break like millions of college students; instead, I believe the time is right to take a break from the written world. Besides, with the coronavirus pandemic spreading across the world, there are more serious things to worry about than chugging out blog posts. […]

Technology and the Ordinary Joe

If you are interested in reading about Super Tuesday, coronavirus, March Madness, the British royals, Daylight Savings Time, or the Masked Singer, please turn to somewhere else on the ‘Net. Instead, I am going to write about something I usually don’t cover in this blog–no, not hot sex or hot chicken recipes. Instead, I am […]

Last week, I did a Have You Noticed? post. In this edition of the Soapbox, I am going to do something I haven’t done in a year–a Boo/Yahoo post. The beginning of March. Yahoo. Even though March is not my favorite month, it is a lot better than February. And spring is just a few […]

I am going to do something I haven’t done in a half-year–a Have You Noticed? post. Have you noticed that February never seems to end? Worse, since this is a leap year, it’s going to be longer? Have you noticed that moderation is no longer a virtue in the Democratic Party? Have you noticed nobody […]

Some Words on Politics During the Presidents’ Day Weekend

I am going to discuss a subject I have more or less avoided in a long while, and no, it’s has nothing to do with S-E-X. Instead, I am going to talk about presidents and politics. I know I have become disenchanted with politics, but it is like love was on February 14–it is in […]

Ordinary Joe Fantasy: Attending the Oscars Ceremony

It’s has been one busy week since my last post. Donald Trump was acquitted in the impeachment fiasco trial, the Kansas City Team With a Somewhat Politically Incorrect Nickname won the Super Bowl, the Iowa caucus was a disaster, radio gasbag Rush Limbaugh has been diagnosed with cancer and won the Presidential Medal of Freedom, […]

Not Bowled Over Super Bowl LIV

Sis-Boom-Bah! It’s Super Bowl Sunday. Even though I enjoy watching the pigskin sport, I am not a Super Bowl fanatic. Unlike Dagwood Bumstead from the funny papers, I don’t buy enough food to feed armies from a couple dozen postage stamp-sized countries. Although the games have been better in recent years than the snooze fests […]

It’s Good to Be a Man

Rather than writing about the impeachment of President Donald Trump or Mr. Peanut (no, not Trump. Instead, the Planters mascot allegedly went to the Great Nuthouse in the Sky, though he will probably be back because you just can’t keep a good man or legume down), I am going to write a testosterone-filled post. Next […]

No Writing Today–A Stream of Conscious Poem

Today, I am suffering from writer’s block. Whenever that happens, I like to examine my more sensitive literary side and write poetry. Not surprisingly, I am going to compose another one of my stream-of-conscious poems: No writing today. I’m feeling Depressed That Christmas And New Years Came and went Quicker than Santa Claus Fleeing a […]

Some Lessons From the Teen Decade

One of my favorite songs from the classic rock group Boston is “Don’t Look Back”. Now that 2020 is here and I have 20/20 hindsight about the Teen Decade, I am not going to extensively look back on the past because it is way beyond the scope of this blog. It would take me books–which […]
