That Just Ticks Me Off

Okay, Monday morning rant. Not really a rant, but you know. 1. Job listings on monster.com that are no more than an ad to buy someone’s “book” of available work from home “opportunities”. Slimeballs. 2. Buying a package of Memorex CD-Rs and having HALF of them fail. Yes, literally every other one was bad. I […]

Woooha, we got us a sweat-er

It’s late September, and I wanted to go to the Bolton Fair today. It just didn’t work out. Junior seems to have been hit by some allergy thing, as have I a little bit, and it’s freaking hot out there. I mean, not July hot. Well, sort of. It was about 87 and very humid. […]

Scream Collecting

Got Monster’s Inc. Love it. Love the two shorts that are included. Like the outtakes. Got me to thinking…there’s an animator out there who goes to cocktail parties and says “Ya, I worked on that Pixar movie.” The Cute Young Thing ™ looks at him in awe and says “Really? Which part did you do?” […]

Why Are They All Taken?

I just found out that local hero Tom “Ain’t No Fluke” Brady is dating Tara Reid. And last week I found out my Nomar is dating that soccer chick, Mia Hamm. Is there no hope for the overweight average-looking women of the world ever dating a Boston sports hero? Adam Vinatieri is married, isn’t he? […]

CD Burning

I’m making my own greatest hits CD. Not the greatest hits of one artist, but the greatest hits (in my opinion) into collections. Maybe I’ll call those “Now That’s What I Call Music” people and tell them I’ve got their next CD all picked out. Of course, some of the songs are twenty-five years old. […]

I Don’t Appreciate Your Lying

I drove home from Waltham the other day, after visiting my old stomping grounds at IMI. Somewhere along the way I ended up behind this truck and I got to thinking “how can they control it?” I started thinking that it would be really hard to do that. In fact, maybe they’re just saying it’s […]

Thursday

I’d better check to see if there are any good shows worth TiVoing tonight. I sort of missed that it’s the beginning of the fall TV season. Not that it matters. I didn’t see anything that jumped out at me, except maybe the Bonnie Hunt sitcom, but that’s because I love Bonnie Hunt. I got […]

Sometimes you see something and you think “did they really mean for us to see both of those pictures at the same time?” And then you think “If I click on the link will I see a slideshow made up of all the same picture?” But then you just do a screen capture and you […]

Uh, No Thanks

I will not lie…I love to browse around Amazon’s website. I put things in my cart, I ad them to my wishlist, I remove things from the cart and wishlist, etc. I visit Amazon daily, in fact, to check out the Gold Box offers. Because you never know when the world’s greatest bargain will be […]
