LIKE
Hats

Specifically, I like the drivers cap/flat cap kind of hat. I have two myself, one is a light one for summer and the other is a heavier wool one with pull down earflaps for the winter. Black goes with almost every outfit and the summer version goes perfectly with my bowtie and suspenders ensemble for church.

With my Bald is Beautiful outlook on life, hats are a necessity for me.

DISLIKE
Hell

Hell. It just makes me hurt to know that it has to exist. As a 7th Day Adventist, I don’t believe in the immortality of the soul, which means Hell lasts for you as long as you exist but that eventually you do cease to exist. If I did believe in the immortality of the soul, I’d be much more inclined to think that the Universal Reconciliationists were right just out of despair.

But right or wrong on the nature of hell, I don’t have to worry about it because I’ve believed in Jesus and He’s saved me from that.


And that is it for this week. Stay tuned for our next episode, which should be Interesting!

Granola

I talked about Granola in one of my Survival Saturday posts a couple of years ago. Whether it is long term survival food or just a yummy breakfast option. Granola has you covered. Healthy and nutritious, it has what you need to keep you going for a long work day or hiking to the last bastion of civilization upon the collapse of the world as we know it.

I’ve actually tossed a couple of the granola and whey milk packets into our 3day Go-bag so if the worst ever happens we have several days of food immediately on hand. Granola just keeps you going!

Gutenberg Editor (Block editor)

Hideously evil, I have never known such a travesty. Changing WordPress from a WYSIWYG platform to a website building platform, thousands of casual bloggers have been tossed out on their ear by Automattic™. No longer is WordPress a bastion for writers, it is now a haunt of the money crazed bastards who want to monetize their sites at your expense.

While I am acclimatized to this new evil, I do not like it one bit. It still makes me Angry just thinking about it.


And that is it for this week. Stay tuned for our next episode, where things are going to REALLY heat up!

Filibuster

Who doesn’t like a good filibuster? Personally, ANYTHING that stops government from doing something is a good thing in my eyes. 99 times out of 100 they’re trying to do something bad anyway. Ok, that’s a slight exaggeration. 9 times out of 10 😉

Yeah, not so much. I don’t even feel it’s necessary to elaborate.


Governments & Romance covers, what will I think of next!?!? Even I don’t know some times…..

Energy Drinks

I like energy drinks and caffeine. As you can see from the pix above, I am an equal opportunity drinker. I have a dream where the contents of an energy drink will be judged on how tasty and yummy it is and not on the appearance of its can!
#monstercansmatter

Energy drinks: cooling, refreshing, energizing, enlightening. What more could you ask from a refrigerated beverage?

DISLIKE
Energy Drinks

Energy drinks and caffeine, a scourge of mankind! A promise of unlimited energy that in the end enslaves the drinker and brings him down to lows he didn’t think could even exist!

Ellen White, one of the founders of the 7th Day Adventist church, has this to say about such things:
Diseases of every stripe and type have been brought upon human beings by the use of tea and coffee and the narcotics, opium and tobacco. These hurtful indulgences must be given up, not only one but all; for all are hurtful, and ruinous to the physical, mental, and moral powers, and should be discontinued from a health standpoint.”


Confliction! Angst! Turmoil! Addiction! Project X isn’t afraid to face the facts and get its hands dirty. Stay tuned for more shocking details in our next installment.

LIKE
Dune

While I am not sure that Dune is my favoritest book ever, it is pretty close! . Outside of the Bible, Dune is the one book I have re-read the most. By that metric I guess it is my favorite. (Way-Farer is the only other novel that I’ve re-read as many times)

DISLIKE
Dogs

And this is where Project X goes where Angels Fear to Tread. I was run over by an over-enthusiastic dog when I was a young boy and that has shaped my outlook ever since. To be honest, it’s not “dogs” per se that I dislike, but untrained dogs and their forsaken lazy no good useless owners. Get your forsaken dog fixed and trained and then I’ll like dogs.


As you can see, Project X doesn’t shy away from the tough topics of our day. Our Bionic Eye, much like the eye of sauron, gazes ceaselessly across the internet of things to tell you our opinion on The Things.

Coke

Coke Zero Orange Vanilla to be specific. Coke Zero Vanilla used to be my gold standard for soda, but once I tasted this new variant back in ’19, I was hooked! Sadly, it isn’t always on the shelf of the grocery story.

DISLIKE
Cursing

Cursing shows a lack of self-control and imagination in the person who uses it. It is condemned throughout the Bible and is grouped with such other sins as lying, murder, stealing and adultery (from Hosea chapter 4). It is also something I struggle with, greatly.


And thus today’s tutorial on the Letter C is complete. Stay tuned for our next thrilling episode, Same bat channel, same bat time!

Bananas

I like bananas. Almost as much as apples in fact. Bananas make a fantastic breakfast for someone who isn’t a breakfast person. Sweet, easy on the stomach and not filling or weighing you down, bananas are God’s gift to those who get up early and take a while to get going.

DISLIKE
Bots

Those frakking bots, especially the spanisho ones! While I’ve obviously ranted about bots before, I’d just like to take a minute and think some horribly nasty thoughts towards the people who created them ….. there, nasty thoughts thought. Mission Accomplished! Feel free in joining me after this post in burning those people at the stake!


And thus today’s tutorial on the Letter B is complete. Stay tuned for our next thrilling episode, featuring a Mystery Letter that you’ll never C coming! Same bat channel, same bat time!

LIKE
Apples

I like apples. A lot. In fact, I try to eat an apple every day for my lunch. Skin, fruit, core and seeds, I eat the whole thing! While I’m ok with the occasional granny smith, I prefer the sweeter varieties.

DISLIKE
Arguments

Yeah, not a big fan of arguments anymore. I used to be. Back in my teens and 20’s, I’d throw down the proverbial gauntlet and let the metaphorical blood flow like a river! Now? Just thinking about arguing makes me tired. Plus, I think I can count on one hand the times someone else has changed my mind by arguing with me, so I’m sure the reverse is also true.


I realize I’m starting Project X off pretty light, both in terms of subject matter and length. However, we’re in this for the long haul. If you haven’t checked your alphabet lately, there are 26 of those rascally letters. To chase them all down, even bionically powered as I am, it’s going to take true grit and determination. Pacing is essential to Supreme Success.

Project X (Classified and Top Ultra Mega Totally Secret) – An Introduction

Blogging Projects are fun. They give you an idea, something to work with and you run with them. Recently, ThemisAthena moved over to her new site and introduced 2 new projects and the Alphabet of Likes & Dislikes sounded interesting. Then she did her second day of the letter “B” and I realized “Hey, this seems like a lot of fun and it’s something I can do slowly over the year.” Thus, in the Fires of Inspiration, Project X was born!

Yes, Bookstooge is now Bionic! And with my bionic powers I will be bionically writing 26 posts about my Likes and Dislikes taken directly from the bionic alphabet. AMAZING! Tune in next month, bionically, for our shows exciting, astounding and completely awesome bionic first episode! Don’t miss it! (or you’ll owe me 6 million dollars)
