“Not a Low Calorie Food”

I bought a pack of gum at lunch and was just looking at the label. It’s Trident Crystal Frost Freshmint Flavor, for those of you who want to follow along at home. The gum is made with Xylitol, which is a great name for a villian in a sci-fi movie. I assume this is the […]

Other Than the Wind and Rain, It’s Nice Out!

Holy cow, scary wind! Scary destructive wind! I hope the lack of leaves makes it harder for the wind to blow over a tree in my yard, but I guess I’ll find out when I get home. We lost power here at work for about 30-40 minutes, so that was exciting. I assume it was […]

Meanwhile, Out on the Interweb

I love that word – Interweb. It goes in the same mental pile as “waitron.” In the “well, small world but you already knew that” department, I went to my yahoo home page, upon which I have several feeds and news from various sourses. One of my modules is a list of “Leominster News” via […]

Oh, That’s Fantastic

You know, just when I started to get over the whole Spears-Federline media frenzy pregnancy, we’re faced with a few more pregnancies that will keep People Magazine in overdrive in 2006. Angelina Jolie. The Tom Cruise Spawn. Gwen Stefani. And now Gwyneth Paltrow is pregnant again. Will our pain and suffering never end? We may […]

Everything I Say Is True or a Lie

It’s all about lies this week, isn’t it? Arlen Spector lies about receiving Ted Kennedy’s letter, Alito lies about knowing he was a member of CAP at Princeton. (Dude, don’t put anything on your resume that you may not want to come up in the future. And don’t join an organization without at least checking […]

Pot Roast Review

A huge hit! Even Junior had some of the meat, and he said it was great. This is a big complement from my little pasta eater. Mr. Dump said it tasted exactly like his mom’s old recipe, even though it’s not made the same way. Who knew? I’m looking forward to tonight’s leftovers. Leftovers rock. […]

100 Days

According to www.disneyworld.com, it’s only 100 days until my vacation. Yes, that’s right, we’re venturing south again this year. Once more, we’ll be a “magical gathering” group. I don’t know if I’m going to have t-shirts made up. I’ll have to talk to the rest of the crew to find out if they’re interested. We […]

Noah, Call Me

If the guy calling WXLO is to be believed, Noah Wylie owns a house in Leominster. I will admit I’m not sure I believe this. Look, I like Leominster. I have lived here almost my whole life (aside from college, I’ve lived briefly in 2 other towns). But I wouldn’t live here if I could […]

Where Was I?

You mean I haven’t posted anything since Thursday? Shame on me. Well, I can put part of the blame on me trying to be tidy at home. In an effort to make the house presentable so the family could come over to sing Happy Birthday to Junior, I put away my laptop and all it’s […]
