Happy Hump Day – An Old-Fashioned Hero

September 14, 2011


What better to relieve the stress of the work week than a heavy dose of humor?  Steven Colbert’s report, “An Old-Fashioned Hero” did just the trick for me.  So I’ll pass it on to you because I’m so nice.  You can thank me later with this. Newspapers are a dying breed.  But there are still […]

A New Game Plan

September 13, 2011


I have to admit I’m a pretty lazy gamer.  There I said it.

My not-so-inner geek practically squealed with delight.

Happy Hump Day – National Embrace Your Inner Geek Day

July 13, 2011


This is what awaited me this morning when I stumbled in the office: Clearly I’m not the only one in need of some coffee! I went to bed last night to the sounds of the upstairs neighbor clamoring about with heavy feet. There was a particular sound like he/she was dragging something across the floor. […]

Monday Madness – Too Much of a Good Thing

July 11, 2011


Have you ever experienced a repeat of something in your adulthood you should have learned from when you were a kid? After a night of very horrible heartburn received from over eating some pretty decent banana bread, I feel I should kick myself for not remembering the last time I made a banana desert. Damn you bananas and your trickery!
