Random Notes From a Random Day

Passing a bus on a highway is easy. Trying to pass a bus before you get to a particular exit can be more challenging. The vending machine supply company has caught on. We now have two full rows of chocolate-frosted Hostess Donettes in our vending machine. The one half-row sold out every week. The generic […]

Getting Engaged (Finally)

Calling this post long-delayed is a bit like calling the Pacific Ocean “wet” or the guy who slipped up on the Zune leap-year bug “fired” – it is a severe understatement while still being accurate. I was recently alerted by Nightsinger to the fact that my lovely wife repeatedly tells her version of the engagement […]

Sausage #2: Arista

Warning: If you’re soft-hearted, or even have half a soul, and don’t want to cry, don’t read any further. Abigail, this means you.

Also, thanks to Jamie for deciding scandously to have a 21st birthday celebration in Vegas. Was a fantastical trip, […]

My life is officially a non-event.

Less than two weeks from today I hit my five year anniversary with my employer. I’ll cut so you can avoid my whining here.

I hate Mandrina’s home town
