Carroll's Journal (Karma Oblongata)

I’ll be going to the hospital in a couple of days to visit some sick kids who are stuck there for the holidays. As I often do when I make those visits, I’ll be bringing them tiny stuffed animals and see if I can help put a smile on their tiny little faces. That always puts a smile on mine. They always cheer me up. I think I cheer them up too, so we all win. It will help me to get my mind off things. Too much pain lately. Too many tragedies. Too much hate in the world both online, and off.

There’s too many people in the world who have a problem with their medulla oblongata. And that is just a darn shame. It really is. Karma people, it never stops watching you.

On a good note: The world didn’t come to an end …. Yet. LOL But why do I get the feeling that there are some people in the world who are distressed over that? The Mayans may have been advanced for their time, but let’s face it, they didn’t drive cars so …. You know …. Maybe that’s why they spent all their time looking up at the stars. (And talking to extraterrestrials?)

Was just informed recently that my little nephew has written a few short stories. All about 8 to 10 pages long. I quickly lobbied for my sister to let me publish them through Bookbaby when he gets about ten stories done. I want to publish all the stories in one book. However, my sister said no. Instead, they are publishing them into little booklets. She says she has seen the dark-side of Goodreads and such. She wants no part of that nor does she want anybody to go after him. “But sis,” I asked her, “surely they wouldn’t attack a six year old boy?” She looked at me sternly. “Wouldn’t they? I am not going to take that chance. And please, stop calling me Shirley.”

The more I thought on it, the more I was convinced that they would go after him. If for any other reason, because he is my nephew and … there are some people in this world who have no souls.

Good call little sister. Your medulla oblongata is working just fine.

Oh, before I forget, just a reminder about the 2013 “Year Of The Cat” contest. If you haven’t had time to read the book yet because of the holidays then perhaps you will have time in January before I post the initial 10 questions here on my blog on February 1st. It creeps up quickly, doesn’t it?

Here’s the page link if you haven’t heard about it yet. Contest 2013 Check it out! You could win a fifty dollar Walmart gift card.

Here is some late breaking news, Jenny is now spending time with another guy. I don’t know how serious it is, I mean, it’s Jenny we’re talking about so, you know, I guess she got tired of waiting for me to come around to her way of thinking. Even though I still haven’t a clue as to what she thinks about. Who can honestly understand most girls and their medulla oblongata? Better yet, who can understand mine? But I have never hid the fact that I am not one for relationships. (The long term variety) I pretty much suck at it. I’m trying to work on it, but I still suck at it. I guess I have had too many bad examples to ever get a full understanding of this male - female thingy-majig - down to a science. Hell, not even Einstein had women figured out and he had one of the greatest medulla oblongata’s in the history of medulla oblongata’s.

I’m feeling much better now.

Well, good for her. I always tell people to do what makes you happy. If she is happy then I am happy. We will always be good friends and there’s no pain in that, is there? Of course, some of my ex’s couldn’t handle being friends with me after the fire was gone. (A few that skip right off the top of my head) Then again, those were probably the ones who had a problem with their medulla oblongata.

Who can say?

On the fantasy football front, out of my 12 teams, only four of them made the playoffs, and of those four, only two got to their league championship game. Those games will be played this weekend and next weekend. I will let you know if I win a championship. I hope they both win. But that’s just me.

It was recently brought to my attention that my blogs U.S. Alexa ranking is 348,831 and my global ranking is 1,549,734. Now, considering that I know of one blog that has a global rank of 24 million, I have to say, not too shabby for my first 11 ½ months. Not too shabby at all. So, thanks everyone. You make me feel special in my medulla oblongata.

“But … but … momma said, momma said, momma said …..”

I finally got all my shopping done. I hate trying to pick out gifts for people, I think I suck more at that than I do relationships. Well, maybe not, I mean, I do get it right every now and then. I think this year I got it right. Maybe because I let everybody pick out what they wanted. Yeah, I went that road. Ba-bam!

Little Caden likes just about anything I get him. He’s six years old, anything new is just added to his toy collection. “My toy collection is getting bigger, isn’t it Uncle Bubby?”

“It sure is little guy.”

This year, I got him something special because when I asked him the other day for a few more ideas - I always buy him more than one thing - he whispered in my ear, “Send some toys to Connecticut.”

I knew what he meant.

I’m sorry, I just about lost it right there. He made me proud of him. So very proud of him. There is nothing wrong with his medulla oblongata …. Or his heart. And his soul? Forget about it! It is as warm and loving as a soul can get. He’s my little buddy.

Look, I may not do another journal before Christmas, or even before the end of the year so let me take this opportunity now to wish all of you a safe, happy and warm holiday season. May your days be filled with joy. Not just from now and until the end of the year, but for all time. Always remember, love isn’t just for the holidays, it’s for the everyday. Remember that and you’ll have no problem at all with your medulla oblongata. Or your karma. Or your karma oblongata. Trust me on this one.

“But … but … momma said, momma said, momma said ….”

I hope you enjoyed the pictures. They are from Cadens birthday party that I was meaning to get around to posting and somehow, forgot. I thought I would sneak them in here.
