The Fountain Of Mucus

WARNING… this post may disgust some people. It disgusts me. I am just getting over being sick, basically for the last three or four days. Nothing too severe. No vomiting, no urgent duck-walk trips to the bathroom just barely avoiding making a mess in my pants, no severe cough that has kept me and everyone

A New Way To Make Eating Ice Cream Look Dirty

The other day I was enjoying an ice cream cone – as one should do. It’s one of my favorite foods, truth be told. And as I was finishing it, I had a memory come flashing back. Does that ever happen to you? You’re doing something routine, and are suddenly reminded of a memory from

Motown And Mustangs

It’s no secret I haven’t been around this blog much lately. I won’t bore you with the details, but I’m coming out of a very busy time at work. Next week will be better and the following week will be back to normal – in fact I may even take a day or two off.

An Addition To Our Family

I know I have been delinquent here lately, so I haven’t had the chance to share with you all the wonderful, amazing, funny things that happened to me over the holidays. Well, actually nothing wonderful, amazing or funny has happened to me. It was a pretty damn boring holiday season – partly because I had

A Gold Rush Glory Hole

Have you ever seen the reality show Gold Rush?  It’s on the Discovery channel and is about a bunch of guys trying to find gold in Alaska.  It’s an entertaining show – partly because these guys have the worst of luck.  If anything can go wrong, it does and they don’t find gold very often. If

Surviving An Office Annoyance

My out of control busy life continues… I’ll work about 50 hours both this week and next – including Dec 26th the day after Christmas, which I’m guessing is a holiday for MOST people. Not me. The good news is another one of my awesome readers stepped up to write a guest post for me.

I Might Be Hard To Find For Awhile

Remember back when I posted about my job, and how I had gotten so damn good at it that things were getting boring? Now… not so much. I mean, I am still good at what I do. But now there is just so much more TO do. Last week we got some news at work

Now You Can Keep Your REAL Little Black Dress Clean

I’m half-assing it this weekend once again. But even my half-ass posts are at least a quarter of what a normal bloggers posts are right? Wait, my math may be a little off… start with a normal blogger and their typical post. Divide that by a half-assed weekend’s worth of being lazy and watching some

Gorillas Make Great Salesmen

At an intersection near my house the other day, I saw a gorilla. At least I think it was a gorilla. It was supposed to be a dude in a Gorilla suit, but the suit looked pretty ratty to me. Kind of like a big stinky dog had been using it as a bed for

How To Disappoint A Close Friend

Have you ever found yourself in an amazing situation where the stars all seemed to align in the perfect way, only to have them slip through your fingers at the last minute?  We’ve all been there, surprised at how things seem just TOO perfect.  When things seem too good to be true?  They usually are.
