It’s Deadpool Time

This has been a long and tiring week for me. In fact, it was so exhausting that I almost nodded off at the shop Wednesday evening before my folks arrived. It was a slow day that day so I ended up going home a half-hour early and I went to bed early. I think that part of it was because I was up late after painting my back door and I had to leave it open to dry.

I’m pretty close to another breakthrough in terms of my weight loss. I got on the scale Thursday morning and saw that my weight had dropped another three pounds to 232, which puts me at almost 30 pounds lost. I usually weigh myself every three to four days so that way I don’t jinx myself in case I regain weight.

And I also learned one thing when commenting on an Instagram model’s account when she doesn’t speak English, Google Translate is your friend. That way, you can respond to her in her native language. In my case, I was responding to a Ukrainian Instagram model.

As far as today went, it was raining as I went to Crazy Otto’s Empire Diner for breakfast. Boy, their pancakes were huge (or as Donald Trump would say “Yuge”). The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was this morning. I didn’t watch it because I didn’t want to be bored like I was the last time there was a Royal Wedding which I had to watch at work several years ago. I really don’t give a crap about it.

Anyway, I had to watch the shop today being that my folks were away at a show on Long Island this weekend. It was slow here  because of the rain today and I had at least one sale.

And after that I was off to see something more important than the Royal Wedding: Deadpool 2. I was originally planning to go last night but I was so tired from work yesterday that I just went home and crashed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The other day, as I was leaving work I noticed that one side of the DVD rack had all of the DVD’s and Blu-Rays had every movie with Deadpool on the cover which is part of the marketing ploy for Deadpool 2. And as always, I saw a social media opportunity and took a pic of it and posted on Instagram saying that Deadpool was in virtually every movie ever made!

 

 

 

 

 

 

So after getting out of The Rose Quartz Stand, I went home and changed into one of my new Deadpool T-shirts before heading to Walmart to pick up a cab to Little Falls. This was my first car ride since leaving downstate. I found Affordable Cab’s prices to be reasonable enough. Only cost me ten bucks each way.

When I got there, I made a joke that I was actually there to see Avengers: Infinity War even though I was clearly wearing a Deadpool T-shirt. In truth, I decided to pre-order Infinity War on Vudu (Walmart’s version of Netflix) instead because I felt that it would be better if I watched that at home.

There was a big crowd there because it’s opening weekend for Deadpool 2. And I had a lot of fun at that movie. In fact, I thought it was better than the first one. I’m probably not going to review it but I did enjoy it.

So in short, today was another good day despite the rain. Even if I only got out to see one movie this year, I’m glad it was Deadpool.

Haters

Me showing off my new hat.

Me showing off my new hat.

There is still quite a bit going on in my life lately. Even as I write this, I am operating on only a few hours sleep. Usually during the summer season, I find it really difficult to get back to sleep, especially on Sunday afternoons. That, and the fact that Arthur picks the worst times to be affectionate. I haven’t been able to get back to sleep today, but the fall is coming. Pretty soon, it will be much easier for me to sleep.

Now on to another topic. I am kind of bummed out today and this time it is something other than my ever-growing disenchantment toward my job at Wally World. Today, I found out that one of my most loyal subscribers on YouTube decided to delete her account on account of being harrassed by “haters.” This is nothing new to YouTubers and it doesn’t seem likely to end anytime soon. I have seen videos from users saying that they were leaving because of comments left by haters.

As a person gets more popular on YouTube, the more likely they are to encounter haters. They are usually people who don’t have videos up but exist only to harrass others who are being creative and contributing to the Internet. In fact, the very definition of a hater is that a hater is a person who tries to bring down a person because they are jealous of another person’s success in terms of creativity. I have encountered a few myself on YouTube and got one hateful comment during my first outing on BlogTV back in July. The thing is that it is easier to deal with haters online than it is off. All you need to do is first block the user who sent it and then delete the comment. Other people use the haters as fuel to keep going and some even abuse the hater right back.

While I am sorry to see my friend leave YouTube, I am going to continue making videos. I’m on YouTube to stay and I ain’t never leaving.

And on a lighter note, hope you like the new pic I took yesterday. I was just showing off my new hat. I think the skull and crossbones thing suits my character.
