Summah

I’m not wearing socks today. Or Sox, as I started to type. People who write it that way are probably either from Boston or Chicago, I suspect. That means it’s summer. I know it isn’t really summer, it’s just the last day of April, but if I go to work without socks, I’m in summer […]

Motivate Me

It’s going to be a long day today. It was pouring rain and dark as night out when the alarm went off. I was cocooning in bed and didn’t want to get up. I missed getting the last bag out into the rubbish before the truck got there. I *hate* when that happens. It was […]

Sidekick users?

If you got here because you did a search for T-Mobile Sidekick, can you post a comment if you’ve found websites out there with non-javascript games that we can play? Non of my favorite Yahoo games work in this browser. I’m looking for a Bejeweled or TJ’s Blocks or Bookworm-type game. There has to be […]
