Nobody Sang “Tie Your Mother Down”

I guess maybe being on ABC, owned by Disney [Ed: Christine, you’re right, it’s Fox. They should have ALL sung this song.] kept “Tie Your Mother Down,” one of my favorite Queen songs, off Idol last night. God I love Queen. It was nice to have a whole bunch of good songs (no offense to […]

An Apology to Kenny, our Server from Chilis

Kenny, Kenny, Kenny. I am such a schmuck. I didn’t notice until today that I didn’t leave the merchant copy of the charge slip when we ate there last week, and that means you didn’t get a tip. My God, man, you should have chased us out of the restaurant and caused a big scene! […]

Top Five WTF

Hey, I got hand-picked to kick off a new Top Five mini list. I’m still not sure why *I* was selected, but apparently my stuff works for the new moderator because one of my entries made the first list. Now remember, this is a very surreal one. The topics don’t necessarily make any sense, so […]

Hebert Candy Mansion Sold at Auction

According to an article in yesterday’s Fitchburg Sentinel, it looks like the owner is leaning toward selling, mostly because of three tax increases on his property in the past year knocking […]

01:02:03 04/05/06

Just as a heads-up, I’m not going to be awake when the clock strikes 01:02:03 on 04/05/06. I could, but I won’t. I don’t think the world is going to end, and while it’s kind of cool, it’s not worth me waking up in the middle of the night. Unless I have to pee and […]

Laundry

I think I should start wearing disposable clothes. That way I’ll never have mountains of dirty laundry to look at ever again. I think that’s just best for everyone. And it would also help keep me fashionable, because I would only wear new things. Something to keep in mind. I’m not sure how to handle […]

Okay, that was long enough

What’s worse, thinking the Dump had ceased to be, or finding out that you in fact aren’t going to have a new source of Dump Truck supplies after all? Le Fool d’Avril
