  1. So Still Stalking

    by , 05-23-2016 at 05:23 PM (Barmy Blue's Bland Blog)
    Yeah. Still semi-stalking my cousin on Facebook. Well, more her sweet baby boy actually but still. Weíve been worried about all of them but particularly the little guy.
    If you read the previous one then youíll know that my cousin had the baby over two weeks overdue and that he had breathing complications. For about a week that was all we knew. Mum called my aunt to find if anything had changed, since the stalking wasnít giving us anything. In fairness if youíre in fear of the life of your ...

  2. It's Surreal When Your Name Runs Away From You

    by , 05-22-2016 at 01:35 AM (Barmy Blue's Bland Blog)
    Iím a little bored and tired and putting off going to bed.
    I just googled my name for fun. Havenít done it in a while. Seems Bluebiird has run away from me. I donít really mind.
    Time was that if I looked for it, itíd usually bring me straight here, since itís here that Iím most active with the name. Now itís not even the front page. Like I said. I donít really mind. Itís kind of surreal. It used to be kind of unique. At least with multiple users in multiple places with the same name ...
  3. Funerary Rites and Petrification

    by , 05-19-2016 at 04:47 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I donít know when humans started doing something special to the bodies of dead companions, relatives, and friends, but it seems to have been several tens of thousands of years or longer. Apparently there isnít a lot of information about the origin of funereal customs, but they go back more than 60,000 years. The remains of some Neanderthals have been found buried with flowers and dyes that suggest the idea of sending them to some afterlife. Burial would have kept them from being eaten by scavengers, ...
  4. A Tiny Fortune For Tiny Things

    by , 05-11-2016 at 07:35 PM (Barmy Blue's Bland Blog)
    So Iíve gone a little crazy today.
    Yesterday I got a phone call.
    Now. Some context.
    You know that my cousin was expecting a baby in April.
    Well. April came and went.
    So I kind of started semi-stalking my cousin on Facebook, so that I could find out any baby news.
    Seems she was 2 weeks overdue and then some.
    So. Back to the call.
    My aunt called. Just like with my uncle, she thought I was my mum at first greeting.
    Anyway. It finally happened. ...
  5. Quelle Barbe (What a Beard)

    by , 05-08-2016 at 03:29 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    It has been a few decades since I wore a beard, and back then I sometimes liked having a beard. In recent times beards changed significantly, and I don't much like the change. Back in those antediluvian times men wore full beards. When the beard became long, it might be trimmed, but regular trimming was not common.

    Thinking back, it seems that the characters on TV who were bearded had full beards. I don't recall anything different, except for some strange people who grew full beards ...
