Hello, nosey people!

In the process of updating my résumé, I realized that in this increasingly Facebook-social-networking time, people might very well take the presence of a personal domain in the email address of an applicant as an invitation to look at their life. Go ahead. Feel free. I mostly write about my cats, it seems, and I […]

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 […]

A meme? What is this world coming to!

Several “days” ago Fiercekitty decided I had signed up to join in on some memeness. I didn’t particularly care at the time — I just wanted to know why she was so down on fudge! However, now that there is a meme I’m somewhat fascinated by, I have no choice but to respond to this […]

I sat and stared this morning at the offending code, knowing I must be missing something. I finally went down the hall to grab […]

Did I mention I have a hat?

Mandrina thinks my respond to the hat is funny. I’ve sent her text messages in the recent past about it. Rewind a bit: Mandrina and I were invited to join another couple on a trip to Leavenworth for Oktoberfest. I got a little drunk, got a little hung over, but Mandrina laughed at me. The […]

TV Shows: “Fringe”

Do you know what I find most appealing about the “fringe science” TV show “Fringe”? It’s set in Boston! I keep seeing towns I know. Milford, Mass., just got a shout out.
