Request for Journalists

We get it. Every day, gas his a new high, be it in barrels or at the gas station down the street. It’s no longer news, it’s more a persistent buzzing in our ears. Howzabout this: You report when it hits a new LOW instead. That will be something we all want to hear.

Better Than the Journal of the Mundane?

The post below with the photo of Kitt? It was reposted today on a website with the best domain name I’ve seen in months. Maybe even centuries.Thedailyhasselhoff.com. If any site on the planet is going to link to me, I want it to be a site dedicated to all things Hasselhoff. (You guys know me […]

I Am Totally Stealing This

I was just reading Surviving Grady, and Red was talking about Youk’s shiner. He said this happened because of a “warm-up toss from Scenic Lowell that got away”. Scenic Lowell. I am so stealing that. I will have to use that the next time Mike Lowell and I are in Johnny Rockets cleaning up gumballs.

Homemade Kitt

Kitt, originally uploaded by Big DumpTruck. Is there anything more one needs to say about a hand-made version of Kitt? The lights were on in front and it was talking to us. It sounded like William Daniels, but I don’t know if it was. I think it would be funny to load it up with […]

Minimal? Well That’s Good News

I was on the Accuweather website just now, looking to see if rain is expected to mar Junior’s 2nd playoff baseball game tonight. I happened to scroll down past the important (to me) information and spotted the following table. What struck me as amusing is that they just aren’t completely ruling out any of the […]

Well, THAT is Disappointing

I got really excited yesterday when my iTunes music alert told me that Jason Falkner had released a new CD. I love Jason Falkner and his old band Jellyfish. I went running to iTunes to check it out, and its….instrumental versions of Beatles songs. If I want to listen to Beatles songs, I will listen […]

Two Truths and a Lie

It’s everybody’s favorite way to spend Thursday afternoon…two truths and a lie! In no particular order: I have an endless loop video of the gerbils running on a photo frame in my cubicle. I used the last square of toilet paper this morning I was given a pyramid paperweight at work yesterday. Additionally, the following […]

Corporate America 1, Jody 0

I lost another battle that I didn’t know I was in. You know the tune – Jody likes something, and the company that produces it decides to pull it from the market. We’ve talked about it here before, how food staples like Raspberry Kool-Aid and Primavera flavor Chicken Tonight simmer sauce left a hole in […]

Bad Gum! Bad!

I bit the inside of my cheek waaaay in the back, like, next to the back molar. It hurts. Every time it heals enough so it doesn’t hurt (like, overnight) I eat something and re-bite it. Chewing gum is right out. That was the most painful bite. I’m sorry, I just thought you’d like to […]

We’re Number 2!

Junior’s Little League team finished the regular season in 2nd place. They had a bye the first round, which is cool, so we didn’t have any games yesterday. This morning there was a [very very damp] practice, and their first playoff game will be Tuesday. Because of the strict pitching rules in Little League being […]
