What I Did On My Bonus Day Off

I had a bonus day off today! And a good thing too, because I slept not so great last night. Joe was watching Jurassic Park around nine-ish, so I went upstairs to watch Four Weddings. (I know. Shut up.) I saw maybe 15 minutes of the thing, then woke up briefly during an episode of Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta (I know. Shut up.), but Top Gear was on, so I switched to that... Read more →

Where I Stand

Every time I try to articulate my feelings about the movement to outlaw abortion, I can't do it. I get too angry, absolutely torqued up, completely livid. Yes, Representative Akin and his ilk are dangerously misinformed about rape. Even though his party has had the vapors over his "mis-speaking" and want him to withdraw from the race, they still want to outlaw abortion, in all cases -- rape, incest, health of the woman -- doesn't...

Pull Up Your Goddamn Pants: Escalator Edition

Summer is winding down, but the weather is still plenty warm enough for young men to display their assets (heh). Here are two gents on their way down to the train. I particularly like the fellow on the left, with his muffin top on steroids and his multicolored tank top, which is actually tucked into those jeans. The bright blue ball cap really makes the outfit pop! The fellow on the right, meanwhile, takes a... Read more →

Another Sunday Stealing

Yes, I know it's been a week. Yes, I know this is a meme. So be it! 1. You have been awarded the time off from work and an all-expenses paid week anywhere in the United States. The catch is that it must be somewhere you have not been before. Where do you choose to visit? I would visit Key West, Florida. I've always wanted to go to Key West, just to hang out and...

I Ate, I Edited, I Made A Pie

So, the rest of the week happened; it was not as good as Tuesday, but hey, they can't all be winners. It seemed like I was busy busy busy, but it was mostly meetings and seminar pilots. I actually managed to speak up in the meetings I went to, which is unusual for me as I either cannot think of anything worthwhile to say or I can't muster up enough suck-up-ness to spout off about...

A Good - No, A Great - Day

Well, I had a great day today. Here are 10 things that made it great. 1. I got about 10 hours sleep last night, for one thing. That hasn't happened in a really long time. Moreover, I woke up five minutes before the alarm went off, felt rested and awake, and got right up. 2. I had the Harris Teeter version of Lucky Charms for breakfast. I love those marshmallow bits, because I am really... Read more →

Stormy Sunday Stealing

Time once again for Sunday Stealing! This one is called the Useless Questions meme. Have you ever written a song? Yes, I wrote a blues tune in college when I got stood up by a guy I was crushing on. It was not good. Have you ever been in the opposite sex's public toilet? Yes, but only by accident. Are you superstitious? Well, I know that the Caps win when I wear my Rock the... Read more →

Hockey in August

Well, okay; it's not really hockey in August. It's a hockey movie in August, courtesy of my Washington Capitals. The Caps are good to their season-ticket holders; they know we are starving for our sport during the long, hot summer. So they set up Caps Movie Night for us, consisting of free popcorn, free soda, and a free movie on the Jumbotron. And what better movie for this Olympic year than Miracle, the true story...
