About RBL G33K

I live as a computer geek in the world of the technically challenged. By day scripting life one program at a time. At night, walking the pathways of the mundane. All of it done with a sharp wit and complete filter failure. I'm just as surprised as you at the things I say...or type. My motto is, "It was a good idea at the time!" Words to live by unless you're accused of murder and then... I'd find a better motto.

B-Rad On The Elderly

I hate it when I get in fights with the elderly. Especially elderly women. I was taught to be a gentleman, and to respect my elders. But my gosh…sometimes they get hung up on a topic and that’s all you hear about. They start out and you try to be sympathetic. You smile and nod your head in agreement. But then I made the mistake of saying “Oh, it’s not that bad, is it?”. Then she really let me have it. I bit my tongue for a while but I don’t like getting yelled at either, so finally I had to raise my voice and say “Well, there’s always the dry food! Do you want to go back to the dry food? Cuz I will!”. She just meowed softly and went back to her food bowl. Now she’s glaring at me from underneath the coffee table. Sometimes I can’t win with this cat.

B-Rad Deep Thoughts

Deep thoughts from B-Rad G:

For one to leave a lasting legacy on history is not entirely difficult to do. Mass murderers and other evildoers have done so in a matter of minutes on a single day. A harder objective is to leave a GOOD legacy.

And really, what good is a good deed when it is done by a celebrity? When everyone is looking, everyone knows their name and everyone gives them instant reward?

The more difficult task at hand is for an ordinary person to do good deeds, day after day, without reward and without anyone knowing it. The persistence of this act is called integrity. And while it may be a quality that is losing popularity, it is also becoming more priceless than the rarest of jewels or the finest gold.

B-Rad On Nothing

I’m in one of those moods where I want to do everything and nothing at the same time.

And while I have tried many times over the years to do everything about everything, I have found that trying to do everything about everything will wear you out until you feel like doing nothing.

Interestingly enough, I have also found that you can’t really do nothing about nothing because nothing is just that…nothing. You also can’t do everything about nothing. And there’s nothing you can do about it either. Your wheels just get spun off.

So to get down to business, I have chosen to do nothing about everything. And it’s everything I ever dreamed it would be.

Other than that, I’ve got nothing…

B-Rad On Paying It Forward

Our cat has this thing she does at night when her feet get cold. She curls up with me and presses her little toe pads up against my forearm until they get warmed up. And she purrs. It’s kinda cute, and it makes me feel needed.

So this morning, when my feet were cold, I saw my wife lying there peacefully and thought about that movie “Pay it Forward”. What woman doesn’t want to feel loved and needed, right?

Who knew?

The doctor said I should regain vision in my left eye once the swelling goes down, and that my ribs aren’t broken, just dislodged.
