I must admit I was a tad disappointed. A little while ago I published a post about ridiculous people wearing sunglasses at night or indoors who thought they looked cool doing so. In my opinion they look stupid but as with so many things there are always exceptions. I said there were only five people on the planet who looked cool wearing sunglasses at night and they are:
1. Ray Charles.
2. Jack Nicholson.
3. Neil Young. (I think he’s singing a song called “Who farted?”
4. Now I have a beard – me!
That’s only four and no one mentioned it! Perhaps the image I used of our good mate Arnie (Get to da chopper) Schwarzenegger confused the issue because he was wearing shades. Nope. It’s not him.
Here’s five more that it’s not.
1. Snoop Pig.
2. Bonio from U2.
3. Russell Brand.
4. Tom Cruise.
5. Justin Bibwearer
I did consider encouraging everyone to nominate who they thought it was but knowing my luck no one would respond and I’d look even more of an idiot than normal. However, if you disagree with my selection, feel free to nominate your own shades at night wearing dipsticks.
For the record, the fifth person on my list is………………………
I hope you have a great day.
More Dick soon

Every now and again, despite following 2HelpfulGuys, I get a bit down in the dumps. I’m rarely miserable for long as I tend towards looking on the bright side. In fact, one of the songs I want played at my funeral is Eric Idles version of “Always look on the bright side of life” along with “Gimme Shelter” by the Rolling Stones which I think is the best song ever, “Racing in the Street” by Bruce Springsteen and “Call Me the Breeze” by Lynyrd Skynyrd . Mostly I chose them as a) I like the songs and b) I think they tend to sum me up. Strangely, my favourites, Neil Young and Linkin Park (who I work out to) don’t feature. I hope they don’t get played together any time soon!
I’m going off at a tangent again aren’t I?
I was feeling a bit miserable because I was stuck. I was at a loss as to what to write about. So then I read through some of the blogs I follow and got depressed! They were so well written. Tessa at ‘Nothing was Said‘ expressed her excitement over her upcoming interview with the Peace Corps brilliantly. John at ‘Storytime with John’ described his first time skiing with such wit that I nearly wet myself laughing. Steve at BlogBloggerBloggest posted a letter to an 11-year-old that was so immense I actually applauded when I finished reading it. The ‘Chatty Rachel‘ produces prolific amounts of witty one liners and “helpful” suggestions to us blokes on how to increase our desirability to women that crack me up every time I read them. I felt my own writing attempts were crap in comparison. Then I think the sun came out and I realised my writing isn’t crap. It’s different to the blogs I’ve mentioned. I write about different things in a different way and that’s as it should be. I’ve only been blogging since November so I’m still new to it and while my first efforts are somewhat bloated in comparison to my later efforts, I can see an improvement in the way I write and what I write about. My blog is evolving and I’m pleased about that. So now I’m a happy bunny and I see I have many things to write about. If just one person smiles at something I’ve written, says “Too true bud” or even “Thats a load of rubbish you moron” then I’ve achieved what I set out to achieve. I got people to react to what I’m writing. Still have an issue with when and where to use commas and apostrophes though but I’m sure it will get better and hopefully I’ll be forgiven if I mess it up now and again.
My thanks to the people I’ve mentioned in this post. They are totally unaware of it but they have inspired me to continue and helped me past my block. I appreciate it.
More Dick soon.
Have a truly inspirational day

This post is directed at all those people who think they look cool wearing sunglasses indoors or at night. You don’t! You look idiotic. Take a hint from what they’re called. The sun isn’t out at night, it’s gone sleepies. Nor does it shine indoors. So stop being a twat and TAKE THEM OFF!
The chances of the sort of egocentric, narcissist who does wear sunglasses at night ever reading this splendid, intelligent, well written and witty blog are probably 17 billion to 1. Bearing in mind that the current world population is 7,324,782,000 that makes for pretty lousy odds.
As with everything, there are exceptions. Only five people in the whole world look cool wearing shades at night and they are (in no particular order):
Neil Young (the coolest dude ever)
And now I have a beard – me!
Everyone else looks stupid. If you think someone else DOES look cool wearing shades at night then let me know and I’ll either snort with derision:
Or applaud your own coolness:
Which coming from an old fart like me means nothing at all!
Have a great day.
More Dick soon.
