Yard Sale Weekend

It’s the family’s annual yardsale. I normally sell NOTHING but I had a great day today. Got rid of a lot of stuff, actually. I still have plenty left for tomorrow, but I don’t know how much of it will go. I was selling a lot of baby things, which do well. I actually sold […]

Almost Friday

Another week of looking for a job and ending up at the beach and an amusement park. How did THAT happen? Well, I know how it happened. When I originally became unemployed back in January I was not a happy camper. Tied with marriage woes, well, I just had no energy to do anything. The […]

Stupid Boston Bartenders

Okay, time for another check-in on this STUPID Opie and Anthony thing. Once again, I don’t think they should have been fired for this. I think simulating sex in a Church is wrong. But THEY weren’t having sex in a Church. Okay, so given that… Now bartenders in the Boston area are boycotting Sam Adams […]

So okay, I’ll pretend it’s a banner day and I’ve had more visits than any other day in history. Feel free to hit the reload button, too. I’m […]

Waiting for Tuesday

Duncan Sheik’s new CD – Daylight is being released on Tuesday. Amazon sent me an email to let me know it was coming, I have no idea how they knew I would actually WANT that piece of information. I must have clicked on something, somewhere. People Magazine gave it a rave review…said he was like […]

Strangely, not that satisfying

I’m still doing the chat support thingy, and as I type my messages to the mysterious “Dean” I can’t help but think “Man, I thought chatting with guys online was supposed to be sexier than discussing firewalls and routers.” Do you think I should ask him what he’s wearing? (update: I just decided to turn […]

I Love Technology

I am using an online chat system to communicate with HP support (had a question about how to update my BIOS if I don’t have a floppy drive, because the downloadable file requires it. You know, typical head scratching time. It’s nice to be able to communicate real-time with tech support.

Davezilla Isn’t From the Godzilla people? I had no Idea!

Love this cease and desist letter the Godzilla company send Davezilla. Cause you know, I was all confused and stuff. Did all the other Zillas get a call, or did they pay royalites to Toho?
