Taking out the trash

It had been far too long since I’d done it. Every now and again it’s necessary because over time we accrue any number of names and numbers that eventually become obsolete. Last night I sat down and cleaned out my phone’s address book, and I kept a running tally – just for you.
Number of total [...]

More lolz.

Most of you probably read I Can Has Cheezburger, I Has A Hot Dog, and Graph Jam. If you don’t, you probably hate freedom, puppies, and rainbows. This morning I stumbled across engrishfunny.com, another in a long line of lolz. Seriously, go there. Why?

Don’t say I never did anything for you.

Rebel yell

Every afternoon it comes. You can’t quite set your watch by it, but chances are I’ve already eaten lunch.
It echoes down the hall and sounds like it’s coming from right over my shoulder. My shoulders tense and my head tries to sink into them like a frightened turtle’s would.

Positive charge

I can’t remember the last time I left something in a hotel room. I’m normally pretty diligent when it comes to making sure I leave with everything I brought when I travel. When you stay with a friend, you always have a way to get your shit back, but if you leave it at a [...]

Getting my feet back under me

The last week and a half has been a whirlwind of activity, from the beach two weekends ago to Chicago last weekend.

The city was predictably awesome, and during [...]

I’m back. Whew.

Awesomeness ahead

At this time tomorrow I will be on the road, headed to the annual weekend of sweat, energy drinks, and intemperance. For the purposes of this trip, that’s the trifecta of awesomeness. How excited am I? I have already packed one of the two bags that will be required, acquired all of the required beverages, [...]

Likes it ruff

Recently there’s been a disturbing development between the walls of Chez-66. The puppy has begun to hump things. A lot. Specifically his bed. This is a rectifiable problem whenever I get the chance to make an appointment to do what Bob Barker always told me to, but for the time being it’s relatively comical. You [...]
