March: The Good, The Bad, and That Purgatorial Feel

February is over. Yahoo. This past February had been one lousy month for me. I had to spend $800 for car repairs thanks to a busted alternator and another $200 to patch up my driveway. As usual, the weather has been relentlessly awful. About the only time I got out of the house was when […]

Sometimes, it’s good to be a man, especially on the unofficial National Man Day–i.e., Super Bowl Sunday. But what if you are someone of the masculine gender who doesn’t give a whit about the Super Bowl? Unfortunately, I am suffering from that particular predicament. I really don’t care if the Los Angeles Rams or the […]

Since I don’t know what I want to write, I am going to do something I haven’t done in a long time–a Boo/Yahoo post! The government shutdown: Super boo. I just wish it was over. It is a sterling example on why I have such disgust towards the miscreants tramps and thieves MFers politicians in […]

It’s that special time of the year! Not only is it the last post of the year, it’s time to hand out the annual Joeys! I created the Joeys in 2011 to present awards in categories not normally seen in the “best of” lists in newspapers and magazines. There are no monetary compensation, medals, or […]

Due to technical difficulties beyond my control, I didn’t have the Internet last week at the Ordinary Joe domicile. That’s okay–I had another bout with writer’s block, and my post was pretty forgettable. I missed not having the Internet. I use the Internet in so many ways from keeping up with current events to listening […]

Hey, Hey, holy mackerel! Cubs lose! Cubs lose! Last week, I wrote that it was no fun being a Chicago Cub fan anymore because the Boys of Wrigley Field have become an excellent team. Well, this week the Cubs played like the diamond doofuses that I grew to know and laugh as they lost two […]

No Nobel for Me, and Some Random Thoughts

Drats–I won’t be going to Scandinavia this year. Recently, I read a story which stated the Nobel committee won’t be awarding a prize in literature in 2018. However, two prizes will be handed out next year. I know I will have a better chance winning the Powerball or visiting Jupiter than winning a Nobel prize. […]

Told ya. Earlier this year, I predicted the Miss America beauty pageant ratings would be in the toilet without the swimsuit competation. I was reading an article in the Variety website about Miss America, and I was right–the pageant drew a a million fewer viewers than last year, and last year’s ratings were nothing to […]

Today is Bastille Day, which means I have to say something good about the French. Also, France is playing in the finals of the World Cup. Even though the French are better known for their cyclists and their indoor athletes (I’m not talking about figure skaters and fencers), they have had much success in the […]

Like War and Peace, Stalingrad, and one of those Politburo speeches from the Leonid Brezhnev era, the World Cup soccer tournament in Russia goes on and on and on. But I am not going to talk about penalty kicks, Pele, overtimes, Bend it Like Beckham, and GOOOOOALS because I am in a pickin’ and a […]
