I wrote a new page today detailing some of the places I like to eat. It isn’t a regular post since I intend to update it periodically when I try new places or dishes. Damn you Alton Brown for creating a television show named after a phrase I use regularly! One irritation with pages (which […]

Fighting Terrorism Since 1861

Occassionally you see a bumper sticker that offends your sensibilities. “Fighting Terrorism Since 1861″ was emblazoned on the back of a white Chevy panel van, next to a confederate flag. The sticker wasn’t alone; a confederate flag was positioned between the two parts of the van’s license plate number, another in the back window. You […]

I dislike today. Partially because the snow plow (which didn’t bother coming by until early afternoon) piled up a foot worth of ice in front of my driveway (which I had taken great efforts to clear mere hours ago) which I had to re-clear before I could get my car in the driveway. Partially because […]

Chappelle Videos

I told a co-worker that I’d send him some links to my preferred Chappelle’s Show parodies. So here they are, descriptions censored for those sensitive souls. Grand Theft Auto.

I heard a radio commercial for Maryland’s $25 Million Frenzy today and it made me a bit mad. Not only does Maryland plug the things non-stop on every type of media available, they go and offer an even more expensive ticket. Did I miss something… is $20 the new $1? $20 for a scratch-off?!? So […]

I noticed one of most absurd things today while enjoying a HERSHEY’s Milk Chocolate bar with my lunch. There is text printed on the plastic wrapper instructing the user (or eater, I guess) how to open it! This is yet another sign that the system as we know it is going to hell. It’s right […]

I noticed this weekend that my Motorola V325 was starting to experience some serious menu lag. When you’d key the Talk button to bring up the “All Calls” list, it would take several seconds before the menu came up. The same thing would happen when attempting to dial someone from the list or the contacts […]

One of the wonders of working a nine to five sort of job is getting reimbursed for things. I don’t have a lot of luck when it comes to the reimbursement paperwork. There’s never a simple one for me; I almost always get the paperwork returned to me. About two weeks ago I buy two […]
