The ABCS of Me

FaceShotOne of the popular things that happens on Facebook from time to time, is your friends start posting lists and forwarding them. They also try to force you to do the same.  I have a policy to not do anything on Facebook that a status post dared me or even asked me to do. However I do often enjoy these kind of list posting because it lets me get to know people a little better. Although I’ve met and shaken hands with almost everyone on my Facebook friends list – that doesn’t mean I know them. Sometimes an informational post is helpful when making better relationships.

The answers on this list can be used to get to know me. They can also be used to build my FBI profile, or steal my identity, and I have to decide whether sharing is worth the risk. I’ve never really been scared away by conspiracy theories. I readily admit that marketers online want as much information about me as they can get. They love building detailed databases, and these answers will help. If it lets you know about me, it lets anyone know about me, and for now – I’m OK with that. My income and wealth are low enough that anyone who stole my identity would actually end up owing more money than they do now.

Having said that, here are the ABCs of Jeff Goebel.

This is where I’m honest, right

I'd like to think I could be honest again, because I think I'm worth a second look. I only feel this is true. When I'm high. I did a huge thing today. I just did it. I got high on a drug that isn't weed. Let me lead into that. I have a story. I'm an interesting...

Same accident. Different door

Same accident. Different door

So as of 8:14 a.m. on Tuesday August 2nd I am possibly missing a cat, or not one may have escaped outside which is really bad for at least one or two of the cats and reasonably bad for the third. If it's the bad cat and I don't mean bad cat I mean if it's the cat that...

Day two. It doesn’t get easier..

Day two. It doesn’t get easier..

Doing pretty much the same thing every day doesn't necessarily get easier. For someone with attention deficit disorder it can actually get more difficult because each day it becomes less interesting and the temptation to be creative and look for ways to make it fun...

The Wednesday that was Monday

The Wednesday that was Monday

I woke up from another dream at around 7am today, a Wednesday, but it was a fresh awake wake-up. The first I’ve had since my medication screw up almost 3 weeks ago. I stood up, and didn’t lay back down again. I sat at the computer and started my morning work routine...
