comics: wholesome, yet disturbing…?

I think about the only time I read the comics in the newspaper is when I visit the family for the holidays, and I just found this Family Circus strip disturbing! I’m sure it’s supposed to represent a cute little...

video: let me axe you something…

Another video holiday moment, this time from Futurama–cartoons are much easier to edit while on the road. I hope that this Xmas day finds everyone happy, content, lazy and/or hungover. Whether you’re surrounded by loved ones, taking it easy on...

video: did you know…?

Turns out that my parents’ internet is still functioning and my connectivity is secure and no one’s really “done” with working for the holidays, so I’ll have a while to myself at the house today anyway. I did try to...

weather: numb finger blogging

Ye gods, it is butt ass cold out there! Somewhere in my bones I realize that today is a wee bit better than yesterday as there’s less wind, but still… ouch! Even so, I’m not sure what it says that...

food: the people’s brunch

Move over Tonic, I may be a CommonWealth breakfast/brunch boy now. After going for the first time this past Thanksgiving, I knew I wanted to try more of their stuff. Kyle suggested we hit it for brunch and I was...

video: Yule Blog

Inspired by Fredo’s semi-famous photo of him enjoying the televised Yule Log and a few fun moments from Corner Gas [starts at 4 mins], I decided to seek out a Yule Log video this year. I’m not sure how I’ve...

adobe: have a good book nearby

Why is it that the day or two after you refuse a new job offer, your own job stinks even worse than usual? After mulling it over and weighing pros and cons, I decided that my current job is best...

bloggers: Go See Milk

I almost never get out to see movies anymore, not really sure why that is. Either its the cost or the reviews or lack of real interest when it comes right down to it. I’m usually fine picking it up...

food: pack it on, it’s Christmas!

Spotted on the front cover of this morning’s Express. Talk about a no-brainer headline, hm? Researchers predict more people will ditch diets for the holidays: Holidays are often associated with parties, goodies and the inevitable weight gain. Studies show Americans...

2009: I’m here to fix your… cable.

From the New York Daily News: A tongue-in-cheek calendar of Time Warner employees shows there’s more to being a cable guy than modems and routers. Snaps of cute workers flexing their muscles, having playful water fights or going through boot-camp...

holiday music: a unicorn in the veldt?

I don’t generally go for holiday music. If I forget to bring in something good, I might resort to a Pandora station based around some jazzy or piano holiday tunes. My usual fallback is Christmas Cocktails 1 and 2, with...

work: what me, hireable?

I had my “on-site” interview today, actually meeting the federal client and seeing where I might work. I’m still deciding what I want to do, but I can’t help wear a smile and perhaps a slight swagger. Being in-demand, professionally,...

culture: regulae stultis sunt

Does anyone else ever feel like a colossal tool for following the rules or playing fair? Is that just me? Just this morning I had to leave the office to go to another appointment, and I hadn’t finished my coffee...

food: the good, the fast and the ugly

It certainly starts out from good looking ingredients, no? In my constant trying and testing of kitchen gadgetry, I’ve recently become a fan of microwave steaming bags. They’re made from “food safe plastic”–kind of odd, they’d explicitly state that and...

booze: from the land of pleasant living

Spotted near the trash bins outside my building. I think I love the tagline the most: From the Land of Pleasant Living. Why yes, I do live rather pleasantly whenever possible. I’m not a beer person at all, but it...
