Things You Need to Know About *ME*

Hey, it’s time for me to make you all just a little bit more informed about ME. Because when the rubber hits the road, it’s all about ME. At work, I use the fourth stall in, unless someone else is using it. If someone else is using it, I feel someone is trespassing. But I […]

Hey, Mom! I got a good checkup! Why yes, I am a Crest kid, why do you ask?

Importing Information of the Day

Today’s trivia question brought to you by the PowerBar. Co-creator Brian Maxwell died of a heart attack at age 51. Another example of a really fit person dying extremely early. I’m thinking I need to do whatever he didn’t do if I want to live long and prosper. So the discussion this raised was: Is […]

Penny Candy? Ha!

Dropped 20 bucks at the penny candy store, which means we spent about 4 bucks each. Not too bad, but still, it would have been nice to see things that were, oh, a penny. I ended up with some Mike & Ikes, a thin Charleston Chew, Sixlets, Cowtails (like bullseyes) and Lik-M-Aid. Others got swedish […]

Heavens to Betsy, Where Did You All Go?

Man, you skip one day, and then forget to ping blogrolling, and your traffic drops into the toilet. Please, people, you have a moral obligation to stop by at least once a day, just so I know you’re still out there. You are still out there, right? I see your eyes glowing in the dark. […]

I Want a Garage

Okay, which one of you is going to donate a garage to me? It’s not a tax write-off, but you’d have the warm feeling that comes from keeping my car out of the snow, and giving Junior a place to store his bicycle. Every boy needs a garage for his bike, don’t you think?

Snow Accumulation

I didn’t actually handle the shovelling duties, so I’m not sure what we got, exactly. However, the very same weather website that yesterday said 6-10 inches? This morning I read “Total storm accumulations 12-18 inches.” So I wasn’t so far off with my “ha ha they stink” comment about accuracy yesterday. 6-10 is not the […]

Refilled Seeds

Poor little spring birdies are all atwitter at the sudden dumping of snow in these parts. I saw a couple of them struggling on my birdfeeder and realized that they’d cleaned it out. So now the feeder is refilled, and hopefully my little feathered friends won’t feel the need to head back south. The snow […]

Squatters – Get Out!

Can I just vent here? So we’re expecting a snow storm. 2-4 inches by tonight, a total of 10 or so overall. We all know that means we could get a dusting to 2 feet of snow, because accuracy is an art form the local forecasters have yet to master. Anyway, I got to work […]
