A New Day, A New Blog: An Idol Heart

25 03 2010


I have started blogging again, but have changed addresses.  I am now blogging at AnIdolHeart.com.  There has been, and continues to be, a lot of life change for me, and this new blog is where I will be talking a lot about it.  There will be no more updates to The Gideon Chronicles, so please join me at AnIdolHeart.com.

If you had previously bookmarked or listed me in your blog roll, would you please be so kind to update the listing to AnIdolHeart.com?  Thanks!

See you soon!


the mcnugget emergency

4 03 2009

by now, you’ve probably all heard about the crazy woman in florida who called 911 three times in a row because mcdonalds had run out of chicken mcnuggets and instead of refunding her money were offering her comparable-priced menu items that she did not want.  but, have you heard the 911 tape????

“my mcnuggets are an emergency!” lol!

check out the police report posted on thesmokinggun.com.   then check out this news piece from her local tv station.  ya’ll know me!  this kind of stuff makes my day!  🙂  enjoy.

this reminds me of the woman who called 911 a couple years ago because burger king kept getting her order wrong. that was classic!  “well, you’re supposed to be here to protect me”… “what are we protecting you from? a wrong cheeseburger? is it a harmful cheeseburger or something?”  hahahahahaha!  these people should form a task force. 🙂

“i was born to laugh, i learned to laugh through my tears / i was born to love, i’m gonna learn to love without fear…”

this is my story, this is my song…

i’m a doer, who are you?

got this from my brother from another mother brewster.  if you are a blogger, you must check this out.  typealyzer will analyze your blog based on your writing style, and i guess the words you use a lot or something to that effect.  here’s how it actually works.  it’s pretty cool.

they do give the disclaimer that the writing style on a blog may have little or nothing to do with a person’s actual or self-perceived personality.  fair enough… but here is what it had to say about me based solely on my blog…


wow.  i’d have to say that apart from the whole “engaging in outdoor activities” thing… it’s remarkably accurate.  oh yes, as well the thing about “they might have a problem… remaining inactive for any period of time.”  i’m working on that, and have been making great strides in my efforts to remain inactive for increasingly long periods of time. 🙂

also interesting is typealyzer’s analysis of what part of my brain it suggessts is most active when i write.  i found this to be very interesting…


it does not surprise me that it places me somewhere right in the middle of “feeler” and “thinker”, but i was surprised that it placed me more on the “practical/logical” side than the “intuitive/feeling” side.  when i think about it, i guess it makes sense… which i suppose somewhat justifies their “practical/logical” estimation.  dang it!  😉

becoming a better citizen of the blogsphere

8 05 2008

i’ve been actually blogging for close to 5 years. from xanga to myspace to wordpress… blogging for me has been a series of one great mind dump experiment after another. i’ve enjoyed it, but i’m not sure how good i’ve actually been at it. as i am always seeking to become ‘better’ in general, i am working toward being a better blogger and becoming more involved in the blogsphere as a whole.

if you’re in the same boat and desire to become a better blog citizen, here are a few resources i’m tapping into that may be of use to you, too.

chances are if you are reading this, you are likely to be a blogger. what are some of the things you have learned about the blogging world through your experiences? how have your blogging chops gotten better? and what are some of the resources that have helped you develop your blog into more of an interactive community?

too connected?

8 05 2008

i blog (and blog again), i twitter and i skype

i have a myspace, facebook and a linkedin profile

i text chronically (according to sprint.com i have used 1,828 text messages in the billing period since april 10)

i use blackberry messenger and any number of instant messengers (ichat, aim, gtalk, msn live… you name it) … btw, if you use all those, you need to know about adium. word.

if i am away from my computer and you send me an im, i will get a text message.

if i am not blogging, i am possibly catching up on any one of the nearly 40+ blogs that i subscribe to and read daily…

there are 1,686 contacts in my entourage and blackberry address books.

in addition to my own frenetic social network melange, i manage facebook, myspace, virb, xanga, twitter and various other pages/properties as part of my job…

if i am not skyping, texting, im’ing, twittering, myspacing, facebooking, bbmsgr’ing or anything else… i am probably on the phone. according to sprint.com, i have used 2865 minutes since april 10.

my homey daniel thinks i am too connected. is it possible to be too connected?

i like words. i like words a lot. i am very intrigued by how people use words. i’ve been told many times that i have a unique way with words. perhaps so. but i love to write and i wish i had more time to do it.  here’s something i wrote today. thought i’d share it here…

though I’ve outbursts of bravery
and moments of rhapsody
still all that i long to be
remains just beyond my reach

though i’ve reveled in entropy
i thirst for lucidity
when i feel You reach for me
and nothing else matters anymore
