Oh the pain……

About four months ago I watched Super Size Me, the documentry by Morgan Spurlock about the nature of fast food. While not the perfect example of a documentry, it still spoke to me. Anyone who knows me knows I have always been overweight. I don’t enjoy it, I never have, and I have been working… read more

tick-tick-tick

Tomorrow is D-Day for my new company. One of my two partners is going to a meeting that will determine the final fate of our first license. We have sunk a lot of time, love and money into devoloping these first products, and hopefully they will give the thumbs-up to everything. Talk about nerve racking… read more


Ah, my faith in humanity is restored! According to this news story, if you DARE do something kind for your neighbors, like say bake them cookies, you can be rewarded with a lawsuit! YES! At last, something to deter those damned random acts of kindness that terroirzes the country! Ok folks, look, 10:30 PM was… read more

Street Smarts aspect of course is dear to my heart, but just in general, this is a fascinating colelction of…well…morons. This weeks episode featured a first, a candidate… read more

So cool!

Wow, this is exciting. Apparently all of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s notes from their Watergate stories are going on display to the public for the first time to the public. (sans the identity of Deep Throat of course) As some of you know, I did spend some time as a magazine writer. Now mind… read more


Ok, it’s official…my town is full of idiots. We are in desperate need of employment as we just lost a facotry with 250 jobs. An off-shore technology firm wanted to come to town if we would give them $200,000 in incentives. This would have created 70 jobs and occupied one of our many empty buildings.… read more

Sleepy Time

Still being sick (which is getting really old, really fast) has made me contemplate the nature of sleep. Dictionary.com defines sleep as: A natural periodic state of rest for the mind and body, in which the eyes usually close and consciousness is completely or partially lost, so that there is a decrease in bodily movement… read more

*sniff* *cough* UGH!

Ever spent money on something and instantly regretted it? And there is no way to get a refund. Yep…love those instances. Oh…and my cold is even worse!… read more


I almost forgot to mention this. Last week when I talked about the first episode of The Apprentice 3, I mentioned specifically the loud Street Smart member Brian. Well, big suprise, he got himself made into Project Manager for this weeks project and promptly demonstrated he had NO smarts and got himself fired. The task… read more
