I’m a Horrible Slacker

I’d like to apologize for my incredible lack of attention to the BDT these past few weeks. I’m a bad person. Go ahead, you can say it. I can take it. I have been working very hard on getting the design and templates set for bigbadwords. I’m at a point where I’m pretty happy, in […]

Haul for my family = 1 pair of pants, 3 […]

School Supplies R Us

I’m like, 41 or something like that. You know, approximately 41, at least according to the calendar. I have been out of school for a number of years. I’d do the math and tell you exactly how long, but that would involve “carrying the tens” or something and you know, it’s been a long time […]

Where Art Mojo’s?

Okay locals, what the heck happened to Mojo’s BBQ on Mechanic Street? Not that their food fits my South Beach Diet, but the pulled pork was to die for! Did they move? Just change the name of the place? I thought I saw a story in the paper that they were looking to obtain a […]
