I Have migrated my site over to the WordPress.org platform. Everything is still the same except all of my followers (that is you) were lost in the move. This is normal when making this transition. I will be transferring followers to my new site on the same URL. I hope all of the assholes who followed me in hopes of receiving a follow-back, will stay lost. All of you can burn in Hell as far as I am concerned.
As for those of you who read me, You must certainly know that I love you, and I apologize for the inconvenience. Those of you who use email, rather than, or in addition to, the WordPress reader, will need enter you email at the top of my page at tomnardone.net, and then click the button that says “Be Awesome” This change was necessary for me to do the things I want to do this year.
tomnardone.net is among the many things I have done in my life, for which I am very proud. You people are the only reason I bother with it. I am really excited to know all of you, the non-asshole people, of a great community of bloggers.
I am Tom Nardone, and you are welcome
In our society today, we have rules. Rules or laws are involved in everything we do. Most people abide by the rules of their society, but no one obeys all the rules. When it comes to rules people make their decision mainly on the basis of two things; what is the penalty, and what is the likelihood of being caught? That is just the particular type of assholes we are as Americans. For the record, I proudly count myself among all of you assholes in this regard. Continue reading
I might very well be the most uninformed person in the entire country. I have not watched single news broadcast since the towers came down. I am happily uninformed. I could not name three people in the United States government. I live in South Carolina, and I could not tell you the name of out governor or the name of a single member from the house or senate of any state. Yes, I know this is Awesome; let me tell you all about it! Continue reading
Many people in their jobs strive to be the best and I think this is great. I think it is what makes a company great. When you have people so committed to being the best that they give it their all, and do their very best. I do my best while I am at my job, and I rather enjoy it most of the time. I would always rather be at home, but there are days when I have fun at work. I do take pride in what I do while I am doing it. Many people are simply in a rat race.
Some people unknowingly bend themselves over a barrel and patiently wait for the talcum-powdered fist to make its introduction. This is often how the rat race begins. Continue reading
I was going into a local sporting goods store recently to buy some ammo for my pellet rifle. As I was walking through the store I noticed a button up shirt hanging on the rack. I noticed it because I was wearing the exact same shirt complete with a small tag under the pocket that read “Columbia”. I could not figure out what my shirt was doing in the asshole section of a retail sporting goods store. Mine came from Goodwill. Continue reading
I was driving home in traffic the other day and was mad as Hell at the level of chaos. I thought it would be nice to live in a world without traffic. I pondered what it would be like if I was the only person on earth.
One day I wake up and all of the people are just gone. I am literally the last man on the earth. What would I do? Continue reading
I don’t eat anything from fast food restaurants ever. There are several reasons not the least of which is I find it to be incredibly unhealthy. There are benefits to it I suppose. It is quick, easy, and there are often times tempting prizes or toys that come with certain combo meals; hey, I get that. I worked at a fast food restaurant for three years when I was in high school and perhaps I have seen too much.
There are many of you, I suspect, who frequent these fast food places, and I fear many of you are not aware of the rules of fast food restaurants. If you read me, or if you find yourself on my blog for the first time, then I love you. I would not want to see any harm come to you, or the people you care about so please, heed my words for your own sake.
In life, everything that is accomplished is done so, through communication. Communication is the only way anything happens. If two people don’t tell each other how they feel, they will never date, or marry. If an employer does not tell his people what is expected of them, they will not meet his expectations. If my wife doesn’t tell me to make dinner, before she leaves work, she will come home to a husband playing Xbox, and have to cook. Kids are no different in this way.
The attention of a child is a hard thing to get. A child is a difficult audience. You cannot always gain their attention by Continue reading
