It Wasn’t Good

That might have been the worst chicken chow mein I’ve ever had. Well, actually, the best it could aspire to is being the 2nd worst ever, because the worst ever was from that chinese restaurant in Vermont. Mr. Dump and I went there about, oh, 10 years ago. They serve us this stuff that’s literally […]

Well THAT was fast!

Monday FLEW by. I can’t believe I’m already home again. I was productive, but I don’t feel like I got enough done to make up for the fact that this week is short a day. Also, some people I’m working with aren’t working a full week so I feel like I need to hurry to […]

I Want More!

This was such an excellent weekend – not even for any earth-shattering activities, maybe because of a LACK of them, but the weather, etc., just made it perfect. The $20 pool I got at Toys R Us got PLENTY of use, I got to eat lobster, I got some time out on the back deck […]

Choose…

Barq’s or Diet Pepsi? I hate making decisions on a Sunday. Also, Home Depot doesn’t sell brushes to wash your car. What the hell is the point of that store anyway? I mean, if they aren’t going to carry the stuff you need, they should just put a big closed sign on the door.

Car Stuff

My son pointed out a “funny car” tonight…I know you think I’m going to say a Mini but it was an SUV limo. Now THAT is a car. Is it possible to get negative miles to the gallon? p.s. It probably wasn’t funny at the time, but my neighbor told me that it was so […]

For the Tivo Lover In You

There’s a book coming out called Tivo Hacks. On the blog of the book’s author, he lists the top 5 Tivo hacks that will be in the book. Good Lord, you can run a script to change the programs descriptions to say you’re guest starring on Leno! Oh do I ever need this book!

Perfection

You know me, I get a lot of mileage out of the weather, especially when it’s bad. Cause I’m Mundane and all. But I want to take two minutes out of your life to say that this was the best day of 2003. I can’t tell you how hot it got – it was supposed […]

Yes, How ‘Bout Them Red Sox!

As Bill so eloquently asked in the comments of the previous post (or “next” the way they appear on the website), “Hey! How about those Red Sox!” Here’s what the news wires had to say this morning. I don’t think my commentary would add anything, do you? “Boston set a major-league record on Friday with […]

Insurance Fun

Summary of my current insurance situation – my mortgage company pays my homeowner’s insurance. They get the bill, they pay it in full. Done deal. Two days ago I got a cancellation/refusal to pay notice. Wha? Huh? Okay, so after a few phone calls, here is the status: Insurance Company: We have not received a […]

More Lunch-Related Posting

The cafeteria people send an email out on Tuesdays with the week’s menu. Irealize that this means Monday is an unknown quantity until you walk intothe cafeteria, but I like to live on the edge. I just wanted to point out that one of the categories of food on the menu is“comfort food.” This would […]
