Flights of Fancy

Mr. Dump has bad luck when he flies. Not when he flies with me, but typically when he flies on business. One time, the guy sitting next to him had a heart attack and died mid-flight. That was probably the worst of the bad experiences. He was so freaked out by the dead guy that […]

Thoughts and Prayers

There are a couple of people (like 5 or so) from my high school class who I’ve always wondered about…wondered what happened to them after high school, where they ended up, what they are doing. I didn’t have a lot of close friends in high school, but I was a fringe member of a group […]

On the iPod

For lack of real content, I’ll provide you with some filler material today. I know you want to know what’s on the old iPod for your “Be Like Jody Day” day. I’ll break it down into to categories: What is physically playing right now, and what shows up as the top 5 most played songs. […]

Jodo Likes Moho

Okay, that was a crappy title. I’ve been searching for animation software for a while. Something that would “fill in the blanks” as it were. You know, sort of like Flash does, filling in the blanks between A and B without me having to do it. Because I don’t have the energy to fill in […]

Soup Design Flaw

I was very excited to try Campbell’s “Soup at Hand(r)” soup, chicken with mini-noodles flavor. You are supposed to just heat and sip it through a little hole in the lid. For this reason, instead of the way cool long noodles their standard canned soup comes with, this one was full of little round noodles. […]

If I Can Just Get Through Today and Tomorrow…

…it will be the weekend again! I’m SO done with this week. It’s a short week but it is dragging its butt. I hate that. I would like to have a conversation with this week about it. Me: You know, it feels like it should be Friday. Week: Wha? Me: Well, it seems like I’ve […]

How to Tick Me Off Big Time

I had a very odd dream last night. I dreamt that Junior and I went to this veggie stand/dollar store type place. I know where it was supposed to be, but a store like that does not exist at this location. Be that as it may, we were there, and when we came out, our […]

Tri-Town Drive-In – Not Dead Yet!

[Update: There’s ANOTHER article in the paper today that says the owner of the drive-in hasn’t even been approached to sell it. Okay, it’s all confusing legal mumbo jumbo for the planning board, but apparently this is not a done deal and the drive-in will open this summer if it’s not sold. I’m happy to […]

Mild Panic

Okay, I’m not going to overreact, I swear. But I just looked at my eyes when I was in the bathroom and one of them definitely looks a little redder than normal; redder than it should. Please God, don’t let the eye virus be coming through for a 2nd round, I just can’t stand the […]

That Famous Author, N/A

I keep getting email from Amazon.com saying that as someone who has purchased books by n/a, I might be interested in some other book. The books they offer are generally some version of the Bible or another. Today it was a New King James Version of the Loose Leaf Bible. Does that mean it’s written […]
