Crap. I’m drunk before dinner. I believe the rule of the northwoods excuses this.
I’m on vacation for the next week, suckers! Last one out the door, turn off the lights!
Oh iced Americano, let’s never fight.

Okay, you know it’s too cold when I start to complain about it. 72º is cold!
I’m taking the motorcycle out for a spin. It’s been too long!
still can’t hear anything. The second band was so loud, I couldn’t hear my car on the ride home. So I have hearing aids to look forward to.
overheard at the watercooler: “My 17 year old son has no computer for two days and already he is reverting to a caveman and starting fires.”
Proud of my results on the for-the-heck-of-it typing test. 76wpm, 1 error. http://tinyurl.com/zq8vu

I’m astounded. Absolutely true marketing failure in Apartment ad copy that crossed my desk: “[Redacted Properties- a New Lease on Life!”]
going out for tacos. My stomach either really wants food, or really doesn’t. Guess I’m about to find out which!

Not one day this week have I awoken without Charlie Don’t Surf in my head. Until today! In honor of the new song in my head, which is a very very good song, I decided to post it for you, gentle…
I watched a squirrel fall out of a tree while making sweet, sweet love. Where others may see hilarity in this, I see sweet, sweet metaphor!
The first song, on the new album (El Donk, title t/k) http://eldonk.com/blog/Track1.mp3 is not so much a song, as it is completely silly.
If anyone wants to know why I didn’t get any work done today, there is only one answer: http://twurl.nl/kfv4ya
My gender role assured, I dispatched a centipede for the office ladies. It was delicious (kidding!) I’m such a bad buddhist.

Whilst doing some research for a project I will likely never finish at this point, I came across a band that appeals to me greatly, and probably to no one else. For those who like their music: …
I wrote an email that contained no Simpsons references. It was long enough to warrant footnotes, which seemed inappropriate to the medium.
I wrote the ultimate mash-up: The Clash’s Charlie Don’t Surf and Papa Don’t Preach. If I ever record it, we may all be pleasantly surprised.
Song of the day: I’m Shipping Up To Boston by Dropkick Murphys (it’s that song from the departed.) I think I need some Guinness!
I acknowledge my need for comfort. The air conditioning is on. Wasn’t it a good 30 degrees cooler only a few days ago?
22 minutes until the weekend. Not that I’m counting…
I reviewed a new Citizen wristwatch, if you care about such things: http://twurl.nl/bmdakv

It is probably bad form to start a review with, “I really love my new watch!” Too bad, because I LOVE this watch. Around about the time our Economic Stimulus checks arrived, I decided I was tired…
The DOT/DMV “Research and Information Unit” has achieved results! WI confirms that I DO own the title to my motorcyle, AND provided the VIN.

Here are some random thoughts. 1) Everything on the Internet is 10(x) if you’re a girl. Example: Apparently Scrabulous on Facebook is a Meat Market. I wouldn’t have guessed this, but a friend told…
