video: The King of Legoland

Seen at Colossal: If you picked up a toy in the 1980s, be it a car, Transformers, LEGO, or a Nintendo game, chance is, it might be in this video. I was an avid Transformers collector, so saw a lot...

games: catch my drift?

This one comes by way of Live It, LOVE It. She mentioned it to us at happy hour this past Friday and until she actually sent me the link to her blog entry, I wasn’t completely convinced it was true....

at work: overheard

Conversation between two co-workers yesterday mid-morning*: …I’ll tell you how to get in and we’ll play tomorrow. But when we do, you have to be the girl. I’m just kidding, we’ll make _______ the girl. I was immediately torn between...

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,...

R U Hlr?*

For the Herd! — I mean Horde!

Warning: Geek Post Ahead. So anyone that reads this for the food and (at least I think they’re) funny posts can skip this one. I’ve been playing World of Warcraft again for about a week and I am definitely hooked...

(Over) Heard in the Cafeteria

I am not making this up and I only include it as a reference to the previous entry. I went downstairs, not hungry for lunch today but craving for some Perrier with a slice of lemon. Yeah, I’m a snob,...
