Last fall, I picked a seeded dandelion and held it up to make my wish but I couldn't think of anything. I came to the realization that I finally have everything I ever wanted in life and I no longer have anything to wish for. So, there's that.

It's never that there's not a wish to be had. There's always something more that you want, even if all you can think of is more of the same because you're content where you are. No, it's because you know that the mere action of extinguishing a candle or scattering a dandelion does nothing on its own. At best it gives a voice to a thought that you had before, which allows you to feel a need to pursue it more aggressively--the ol' "the magic was actually inside you the whole time" routine.
Even if it only works on that level, that's still a level of responsibility and commitment to a wish that you may not want to deal with.
Maybe your silence is a sign of being in that weird place where you don't have nothing to lose, but neither do you have enough that you'd feel like giving away.

Our friend the OP John may not express his ideas in an eh way, but ultimately the underlying emotions appear to be as eh as any of the rest of us Johns.

Hey John,
Do math books count? I've been reading Logic: The Laws of Truth by Nicholas Smith.
It's... interesting so far. I've learned how to use logic and truth tables to determine if an argument is valid or not as I'm only on page 67.
Don't know how I would apply this to the real world except for math.

Hello John.

To answer your question: yes, in fact, I have.

I picked up a book that I had been reading last year which, because of the bad habit of mine to nearly-never finish a book that I start to read, had not read to completion and decided to make this particular book into one of the few that I do indeed finish.
The book in question is written by japanese author Haruki Murakami and is named "What I Talk About When I Talk About Running".
In it the author writes about his hobby of running and training for marathons, and expressing his thoughts and experiences regarding it.
It is written with quite a casual, near mundane mindset that reads much like an ordinary running diary (which it practically was for him) and is by no means an exciting book in my book.
He tells about his somewhat impressive running feats and his diligence to his training, which in itself could be deemed interesting to read about, but it all comes off as really.. eh.. and I quite liked it for that.

It even got me interested in running myself and have for the last week been running instead of bicycling and have noticed an increase in my overall level of energy, which I don't mind.

The thing that makes this a good book-experience is the fact that I actually finished it.

Next one to re-pickup is Fellowship of the Rings..

"GPS tells me it’s eleven minutes. I don’t think that’s right. It’s too short. How can you cross a border, go from one country to another, and be there in eleven minutes? It took us two weeks to get here.
The others laugh because I say I want them to call me Obama. We are sitting down by a tree to plan the eleven minutes.
‘Why not Clinton?’ Calculate says. ‘At least it would sound like you got some action.’
I don’t know what he means(...)"

So, tell me John, how do you like Breach? Bring it to surface.

I've always thought it was a "not getting it" face, and I've never been sure if the point was to advertise that you can bring your educationally challenged children here to be drilled into normalcy or that they overwhelm normal children with so many drills it almost gurantees they'll end up making this face when given any creative challenge forever after.

I was given something called a waterflosser which I think is such a fantastic invention. It has changed my daily life for the better but even so I have little reason to bring it up in any conversation. Are there any tools you use that you have little opportunity to praise?

I keep a P-38 can opener on my keychain. I've had it since the 1980s.

It's not the easiest to use, so I only keep it as a backup, but it has always worked.

I bought a drip coffee machine today from a second hand store. I'd never used on before today. I had some coffee for a French press i used to use til i broke it and made a pot.
I hadn't used the coffee for a few moths and it tasted a little "dirty", I think I need to try a few different brands to find one I like.
I didn't want to be wasteful so I drank the lot, it was nicer than in the French press but it got me quite worked up as since I quit smoking I have cut back to only one cup of instant in the morning.
How do you have your coffee? Are there any particular types of coffee you use?
I like my coffee strong and with some milk and two teaspoons of sugar.

I always pour boiling water over my coffee grounds and let it steep for as long as I think is necessary. It makes it very strong and dark, and I don't add anything like milk or sugar. When I feel it's done I transfer to a new cup with a small sieve, the grounds mostly stay in the bottom of the old cup anyway but I like to make sure as sandy coffee is unpleasant.

I've been using espresso grounds lately. I think the dustier grind leads to more particulate making it through my sieve, giving the coffee a creamier texture despite being black. I like it.

Very recently I have begun boiling my coffee in a pot. They call it "cowboy coffee". Before then I had used a coffee machine and never saw a reason to stop using it until I ran out of filters and was recommended cowboy coffee which is where you just boil water on a stove and then throw in coffee grounds. I like the taste more, it is far less acidic tasting than my coffee maker could do, and the person I learned it from said this was because boiling brought it to a far higher temperature.
