Bag of Randomness for Tuesday, November 2, 2015


  • I’m late to post this morning, sorry about that.
  • About a month ago I mentioned I started to take Singulair to help me with a tickle in my throat that wouldn’t go away and noted some of the side effects could be weird dreams and depression, which I experienced.  The dreams have started to become worst and WifeGeeding tells me I’ve started violently yelling in my sleep.  I’ve also been battling some old demons for the last couple of weeks that has really bogged me down.  Yesterday I decided to stop taking the medication to see if things get better.  I’m not ruling out some of this may “just be in my head” but I haven’t been handling things lately.  Heck, I even pulled a neighbor aside and kinda just told him all my problems as of late.  Poor guy never saw it coming, but I’m thankful for him extending some grace my way.
  • I bought some Blue Bell yesterday and a few moments after I put it in the fridge the power went out for about two hours.
  • The big news in the sci-fi world yesterday was that a new Star Trek series is launching.  But it’s a unique approach, CBS is going to release it on its streaming service that will cost about six bucks a month.  I’m thinking the fan base is pretty loyal so they’ll get a decent amount of subscribers.

    Dear J.J. Abrams:

    What is the black smoke?

    You jackass.

    – If the new Star Trek is in the JJ-verse, I'm not paying to watch it.

    I hope you feel better soon.

    Hope you feel better soon. Get off the Singulair. I know I've already shared what it did to my son, but I can't reiterate it enough – that's a rough side effect. For him, it went away pretty quickly after stopping the meds, though.

    If Singulair is messing with your head, get off it and stay off it. I'm still boycotting Blue Bell until the people responsible for allowing the contamination are prosecuted. They chose profit over safety. That gif had to be taken at a NASCAR track.

  5. Jason H.G. Truitt says:

    I echo the Singular comments. Get a neti pot instead. For someone who bragged about his squatty potty, it shouldn't be too weird. I haven't had a sinus or ear infection since I started using it, and I used to have at least two a year.

  6. Mr. Mike Honcho says:

    Keith, I recommend ditching the Singulair as well, and also taking a vacation from the internets. Just walk completely away for a week, unplugged. It's hard. But, Brother, it is EVER so rewarding. Hope you get to feeling better!

    • Ben W. says:

      I echo this – if you need to walk away, do so! I love this blog and the amazing stability of having it every day, but if you need to take some "me" time, do it. We'll all be here when you get back.

  7. AndreaJN says:

    Just because it's in your head, doesn't mean it isn't real. Don't let depression or dark thoughts trick you into not getting help or trying something new or talking to people.
