Brian's Adventures in Findlay, Ohio

This is my blog web site where I will talk about stuff that I do (these are my "adventures" that I am talking about in the title of my blog web site) here in my hometown of Findlay, Ohio which is a pretty good place although maybe it is not like Dayton or New York or a big city like that. Also maybe I will talk about TV or something, I haven't decided.

Adventure for real this time

Okay no more stalling! I will actually talk about an adventure this time! (Remember like I said these are not adventures like the movies where a guy is jumping from a car or something like that, it is really just stuff that happens to me.)

Okay I don't know if I mentioned it but I do this blog web site at the library that is just a few blocks from my place, it is very close and it is nice because I don't have the air conditioning at my place right now (I don't know what is going on, I keep asking Marla if she will fix it because it is pretty warm during the day, it is not so bad at night and I can open the windows, but my air conditioner, it is one of those kind that is in the window, but anyway Marla keeps telling me that she has to call the maintenance guy and she says he is hard to get a hold of, but last night when I got home from work I saw his truck in front of the house and then I saw him coming out of the house before I went up the stairs to my apartment, so I guess he can work on stuff in her house, because this is not the first time I have seen his truck there late at night--sorry I am getting a little angry about this, I am getting off the subject). Anyway it is nice and cool at the library and you can read magazines, like for example the one with ladies or the one with the famous actors on it, and you can use the computers (that is where I discovered the blog web sites) but you can only use the computer for 1 hour at a time. I don't understand why they have that rule, all I have to do is switch to a different computer, but sometimes there are teenage girls using all the computers and I just have to get off the computer because there is someone else waiting to use it, and the teenage girls sometimes are not even really using the computers, they are sitting there talking on their little phones. One time I even saw a girl talking on her phone and she was talking to another girl who was right there in the library on another computer (I guess they were talking to each other, it sounded like that because one of the girls would say something like "oh my gosh, he did not!" and the girl on the other side would say something like "yeah!", I guess now that I think about it they could have been talking to two other people, I don't know). But I am getting off the subject, I was talking about the library. Anyway it is a good place, I am here all the time.

Anyway the other day I went in the library and something did not smell right. It turns out there was a dead mouse under a bean bag in the little kids books area. Boy it stank really bad.

So anyway that is my first adventure (it was the story about the dead mouse).

Okay now it is adventure time!

I have been talking for two days about what I am going to talk about in my blog web site, for example my adventures in Findlay, Ohio, but I think it is time to actually talk about the adventures. Marla (she is my landlady, I think I have said that before) says sometimes "you have to fish or cut bait" and sometimes she something else about getting off a toilet which I think means the same thing, but the way she says it uses the swears and I do not want to use the swears. I hope that even kids can read my blog web site so I will not use the swears. Kids should not say the "cuss" words (that is what we called them when we were kids, so I am saying "cuss" so the kids will understand what I am talking about, but I am saying "swears" because I think it is probably the proper way to talk about cuss words) So anyway I don't want to teach little kids swears, but I have to say I see kids all the time using the swears anyway! I used to get in all kinds of trouble for saying swears when I was a kid, like for example there was this one time I was helping my dad paint our shed, I think I was 10, and I was on a ladder and I dropped my paint roller and it fell down into the dirt by the shed, and I yelled out a swear (it was the swear that means the same as "crap" but crap is not really that bad, it is not great I guess but I have to tell you what I was saying without using the swears). Of course my dad was not too happy about hearing me say a swear, in fact he was so mad he said a bunch of swears himself! He did not really punish me but he yelled at me pretty good for about 10 minutes or something about not having the potty mouth, of course I am leaving out all the swears. He said a bunch of swears that I had heard before (from him) plus a bunch of others that I had not heard (but they sounded like swears, so I guess that is what they were) and also he did this thing where he would take 2 swears (or even 3 sometimes) and make like a new swear with them, and I think might have used swears from another language (he was in the army, so I think he learned new swears from around the world). Anyway he was yelling at me pretty loud and some of the neighbors (like for example the Bosworths and Danny and his grandma) came out of their houses to see what was going on, and I guess my dad saw all these people so he stopped yelling at me. He walked over to Danny's grandma and apologized that I had said the "crap" swear, he said he hoped that I was not teaching the kids the swears, and he made me go over there and tell Danny's grandma that I was sorry for saying the swear. Then he made me finish the shed by myself (I had to clean the paint roller). I guess now that I think about it my dad might be mad if he read this story on my blog web site, but it should not be a problem because I did not actually say the swear this time and also because he is dead.

Anyway so a new rule for my blog web site is:
  • no swears (no "cuss" words)

Okay shoot, I have to go already. I guess I spent too much time talking about swears. I know that I have not done an adventure yet, I will do better tomorrow probably.

I forgot to tell about myself

Okay I was looking at the stuff that I wrote yesterday here on the blog web site and I realized that I said all this stuff about what I was going to write about (for example TV shows, except remember that is just an idea, this is all very new and there may be other stuff, for example funny jokes?) but then I realized that I did not say anything about myself! I guess I was too excited about starting the blog website that I did not even think about telling about me, for example my name.

Well my name is Brian (ha ha although I realized that it is on the top of the screen, so I guess I did tell my name sort of but not really!) and I live in Findlay, Ohio (ha ha, you can read that also). I think that I will not say my last name right now because sometimes I think when I am reading the blog web sites people do not use their real names, like for example they will use a nickname like "Mr. Blog Man" or "The Bread Lady" (I am just making these up, like Mr. Blog Man would be just this guy who writes a blog web site and The Bread Lady would I guess be a lady who likes bread a lot or maybe she makes bread, and she would write on her blog web site about the bread or something, anyway they are just examples and not real). But I can not think of a good nickname for myself, I know that my uncle Burt used to call me Highpockets (which I do not really know what that means but I was a little kid and he was old and he bought me a bike one time so I did not really care about being called Highpockets), and my manager at work sometimes call me Speedy. But I do not think that Highpockets Blog is a very good name, and people are always laughing when my manager calls me Speedy and my blog web site is not going to be funny all the time, like for example what if I have to be serious to talk about some kind of important thing, like a famous lady died or something, then it would say "by Speedy" and people would laugh and a dead lady is not funny. So I guess I will just be Brian but I will just not say my last name, I hope that is OK.

Anyway I took too long I guess talking about my name and I need to go so I will just write some stuff I like, and I will use a list with the dots like I see sometimes on the other blog web sites.
  • Cheezits
  • Raisinets
  • that show about the two guys who are always blowing up things, I can't remember what it's called, the one guy has a big moustache?
  • Batman
Okay so that is all about me mostly.

I am making a blog web site!

Okay all the time I see these blog web sites when I am looking at the internet, they are web sites where people talk about stuff like what they are eating for dinner and what their cats are doing and why they do not like the President or why they do like the President or things like that (these are just examples, they probably talk about other things too but that seems to be what most of the blog web sites are talking about). So it looks like everyone is making their blog web sites, so I guess I will make one too, except it will be about me, because I most of the time just eat at work and I don't have a cat because Marla says I cannot have a cat because she is allergic (Marla is my landlady I guess, but she does not live with me so I do not know why I cannot have a cat, I don't really want a cat anyway but I am just saying I don't understand why she thinks the allergy is a problem) and I do not know the President so I will probably not say much about him until I meet him (which I know I will probably not meet the President but sometimes weird stuff happens like one time my dad met some actor guy, I think it was a guy who played in a space movie or something, I can't remember, anyway my dad met him at the airport so who knows maybe I will meet the President).

Anyway so I think I will talk about my adventures here in Findlay, Ohio which is where I live. (I am not talking about adventures like Indiana Jones adventures because that would be pretty cool, but I do not use a whip and wear a hat and run with big round rocks rolling after me, they are not those kind of adventures.) It is really just about the stuff I do here, like what I do at work and about all the people I work with, they are pretty funny a lot of times. Also sometimes I see funny stuff on the way to work, I don't know, like that weird lady by the newspaper machine (I will tell you more about her later, I don't want to tell everything the first day!).

I am thinking maybe about also doing reviews of TV shows. I try to watch TV when I can, I even have cable TV (like for example the channel with the shows about the people who make motorcycles) so maybe I can write about the shows I watch and I will be like a TV show critic, I will say something like, "This show is very good, you should watch it" or "This show is not very good, but you might like it, you should watch it" or something like that, but now that I think about it I guess if I watched the show already then it is has already been on so you can't watch it, but I guess sometimes they are reruns so when it comes on again you could watch it or something. Anyway I haven't decided about that.

Okay so I hope people will read my blog web site, it is pretty fun to write all this stuff because who knows who will read it. Maybe a famous actor will read it, and will think "maybe I will make a TV show in Findlay, Ohio because it is a good city probably". So that would be cool I guess.
