Well here is Flashback Fridays Chapter 19, a weekly series of entertaining and fun flashbacks of blog posts I’ve written over the past 20 years of blogging. It’s surreal to consider that I’ve been blogging for 20 years.

Using the Wayback Machine to select a few old posts that we believe would be interesting and humorous and post them each week in this Flashback Fridays series. So, let’s take a look at what was going through my mind all those years ago.

When I was younger, I was such a nerd. Please use your discretion when reading these posts because I apparently used profanity a lot.

Let’s get to Flashback Fridays Chapter 19!

What’s Up Doc? – Flashback Fridays Chapter 19

April 8th, 2005 by MacBros

I have my Doctors appointment this morning. Here I am sitting here trying to get awake and having a tough time doing it. I can’t eat or drink anything for 12 hours, so that means no breakfast or coffee. No Coffee! How the f**c am I going to wake up! I just yawned 6 times within the last minute. Now my eyes are running like two leaky faucets from all the yawning.

Well, I’ll be off work the entire day and this better not be a complete waste of time. Hopefully, they can figure out why I’m so exhausted and burnt out all the time and have a magic pill that’ll keep me going like I’m on speed or something. Holy sh*t I’m having a hell of a time waking up here. I need a coffee so bad right now. To top it all off I’m f**cen hungry and thirsty too.

UPDATE: Owie, Owie, Owie!

I hate needles! They took a whack of blood out of me, three thin vials and 1 larger one. I’m the type that is squeamish when it comes to blood and stuff. I was tapping my foot like a rabbit and the nurse kept asking me if I was alright. I told her I was squeamish at the sight of blood and needles. And then later on I went for a sleep test, and since I didn’t have my morning coffee yet I had no trouble passing out.

So now I’m back here playing games and going to have a few beers. It’s now beer o’clock (1 pm) so I guess I get started. The thing is that if I’d had known that I would have been out by noon I would have gone to work, but I supposed the last couple of hours in training class is just recap sh*t. So why bother ey’?

You got a game to play and some cold Keiths to drink John!


It would end up being over a decade and a half before I was finally diagnosed with severe sleep apnea, which was the root cause of my chronic fatigue. It’s sad that I would end up going to the doctor several times to only be told that I need to exercise, and other bull sh*t to get me out of their office and get paid.

It would only be when my girlfriend tells me that I stop breathing in my sleep and I get a test for sleep apnea that would finally explain the chronic fatigue and constant headaches all the time.

If you snore really bad or somebody tells you that you stop breathing in your sleep you really need to get yourself a CPAP machine. They are pricy, but your life is worth it. You’ll sleep better and you’ll have more daytime energy. Plus, you won’t die in your sleep, which is always a good thing.

Hospital = Germ Factory – Flashback Fridays Chapter 19

April 10th, 2005 by MacBros

It never fails! Whenever I need to go to the hospital I end up sick a couple of days later. Every joint in my body is aching and I feel really crappy all over. This is going to suck too cause I have to go to work super early tomorrow. I have a test to do Monday and I can’t really afford to take the time off. At least I’ll be in training and not on the phone. I’m really f**ced too cause I’m broke and I don’t have anything to help with the pain and symptoms.

I’m going back to the futon to rest.


Pre-COVID this was always a thing for me. People weren’t forced to sanitize or wear a facemask before the pandemic and I would always catch the bug of the week if I had to go to the ER.

People would be next to me snot spraying all over the place when they sneezed or coughed. It was disgusting! At least there’s one silver lining that came up because of the COVID pandemic. People were made to be sanitary, LOL!

Did anyone else ever get sick whenever they visit a hospital back then? Comment below…

I may be sick, but…. – Flashback Fridays Chapter 19

April 13th, 2005 by MacBros

I may be sick, but I still have my sense of humour. 😉 Here’s a joke for ya’.

A little old lady answered a knock on the door one day, only to be confronted by a well-dressed young man carrying a vacuum cleaner.

“Good morning,” said the young man. “If I could take a couple minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners.

”F**k off!” said the old lady. “I haven’t got any money” and she proceeded to close the door. Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed it wide open.

“Don’t be too hasty!” he said. “Not until you have at least seen my demonstration.” And with that, he emptied a bucket of horse sh*t all over her hallway carpet. “If this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this horse sh*t from your carpet, Madam, I will personally eat the remainder.”

“Well,” she said, “I hope you’ve got a f**cing good appetite,because the electricity was cut off this morning.”


The salesman sure had a lot of confidence in his product though. I hated when that was a thing. When people would knock on your door interrupting your day with some garbage they were trying to sell. Cable TV and Telephone were really bad for that too.

OH, and the bible thumpers also. I think I made their list of addresses not to visit after one particular intrusion in my day. LOL!

Is He Still Alive? Poke Him…. – Flashback Fridays Chapter 19

April 17th, 2005 by MacBros

Yea, I’m still here. I’m still not 100% better right now. I’m suffering from a nasty cough that usually follows when I’m getting over the flu. A nasty bronchial cough that no matter hard you cough nothing loosens up and you cough so much your throat gets very raw.

I’m going to keep this post short because like I said, I’m still not feeling that great. I’ll post a big one when I’m feeling up to it.

In the meantime enjoy a few new pictures I’ve added to the gallery in the photo album.


OH, yes. I would get sick every other week back then because the people who would be sick at work would sneeze and slobber over everything around them and the place wasn’t clean to standards like they are today post-pandemic.

So when somebody was sick on the night shift and you came into work on the day shift and used the same workstation, you’d catch whatever they had because they were filthy disgusting pigs and sprayed their germs all over the place and never bothered to sanitize before they left.

Blond Joke – Flashback Fridays Chapter 19

April 23rd, 2005 by MacBros

Who can resist a good ol’ blond joke?

A blonde was shopping at K-Mart and came across a shiny silver thermos. She was quite fascinated by it, so she picked it up and took it over to the clerk to ask what it was.

The clerk said, “Why, that’s a thermos … it keeps hot things hot and cold things cold.”

“Wow,” said the blonde, “that’s amazing… I’m going to buy it!”

So she bought the thermos and took it to work the next day.

Her boss, who was also blonde, saw it on her desk.

“What’s that?” she asked.

“Why, that’s a thermos … it keeps hot things hot and cold things cold,” she replied.

“Wow, that’s amazing,” said the boss, “what do you have in it?”

“Two popsicles and some coffee.”


OK, if you’ve been a repeat visitor to this blog, you’ll know by now that I don’t give a sh*t about offending people. If you can’t laugh at anything like this, then you can either stay or leave, but never expect me to apologize for poking fun at blonds. You can go back into your bubble-wrapped safe space and cry yourself to sleep.
