if it comes in 3′s…

If you caught me 2 weeks ago, I’d say things have been looking up.  After a whole ‘lotta time wondering if I was wandering down the road towards Old Barmaid’dom, I landed a sweet new gig.  In the wine industry.  Locally.  It’s pretty much “right up my alley”, if all are to be believed, because [...]

i’m a jerk… that doesn’t always proofread

August 21, 2010

I’m apartment hunting.  Floor plans are important to me.  One complex I’m researching online is obviously overhauling their website and does not have images available online- so I fill out the request form and ask if a floor plan can be emailed to me.  The following is 100% true and word for word (minus identifying [...]

May 5, 2010

In a calamitous event on the afternoon of Tuesday, May 4th, 2010, the pitcher from the avocado green Hamilton Beach blender circa 1970-something suffered a fatal injury. I’m ashamed to admit that the blender pitcher/ sink faucet collision could have been avoided, and was purely a result of operator error.  (Please don’t ask me to [...]
