Almost Time to Bid My Phone Goodbye

I have beaten my phone to death. The keyboard is hanging by a thread (or literally, by a thread of gummy glue). There are scratches on the face of it that make it hard to read text at time. It has dents and dings I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy’s car. But I’ve been […]

Mark Harmon, Call Me

I had a dream that I hooked up with Mark Harmon last night. Excellent dream. He was the 20 years younger version (the current version ain’t bad either) and I guess I was having a good biorhythm day. Or something. I hope to have a similar dream tonight, with some other ex-People Magazine’s Sexiest Man […]

Vobo’s Words of Wisdom

A friend of mine (via the TopFive contributors mailing list) gave us the following words of wisdom this morning. To put it into context, as with any mailing list, there are always heated discussions. Yesterday and today the hot button topic turned out to be based on something I posted. Asked what, if anything, you […]

Mom Says I Don’t Hafta Go To Work

Oh man, I wish that line worked. Does anyone like getting up on a dreary day? I guess it would be worse if it was still dark out. Why yes, I did depress myself this morning by remembering that we’re now on the downward slope of morning light. Sure, it won’t be noticeable until another […]

2nd Time the Charm?

Okay, we made another attempt to do the “Day After the Last Day of School” trip to Crane’s Beach. The last time I went was in 2004, and it was 58 degrees at the beach. It was very unpleasant. Here is what I looked like back them: Today it was 80-ish at the beach, but […]

Goodness, How Many Days Has It Been?

I apologize for my scarcity. I’m making a career detour this month and have been up to my eyeballs finishing my the stuff I’m working on before my last day, the 30th. I will be with the same company, in a different role. I’m VERY excited about this change, even though I’m sad to be […]

Setting the Record Straight

I have to defend Fluff. Some moron at the State House has taken it upon himself to start a personal crusade against God’s favorite food, Marshmallow Fluff. I buy it, and not for Junior. He doesn’t really eat peanut butter. I buy it for me. The part I need to set straight is the “sugar […]

“I Heart My Wife”

Okay, so I saw this bumper sticker on a truck this morning. I can’t fathom a guy voluntarily putting it on. Maybe the wife snuck out in the middle of the night and did it when he was sleeping. Or else it’s his punishment for some really horrible thing he did. I don’t think I’d […]
