It’s Miller Time

Friday at the office, I was midway through a scintillating article on endoscopic sinus surgery when one of my content writers said, “We have to start working Saturdays now?!”I had no idea what she was talking about until I opened my email and saw the following gem from upper management. With the start of the 2ndContinue reading “It’s Miller Time”

Did I Kill Glenn Frey?

A couple of weeks ago, I came across an article that stated David Bowie had announced he would no longer be touring. And then his new album came out. Tara is a Bowie fan, so I was telling her these things, lamenting the fact that we’d never get to see him play live. Three days later, David Bowie wasContinue reading “Did I Kill Glenn Frey?”

Wojo Goes Mobile

My AM routine includes the local news, a cup of coffee, and an episode of the aforementioned sitcom featuring the antics of the men (and occasional women) of the 12th Precinct.

By “old sitcom” I mean oneContinue reading “Welcome Back, Barney Miller”

That may seem odd to you, but I have always loved this sitcom that follows the men (and women) from the 12th Precinct in Greenwich Village, New York. I’ve talked before of my fondness for Abe Vigoda (who is still alive today), but the entire cast wasContinue reading “If Mark Zuckerberg Were Born 40 Years Earlier…”

Honest, Abe is Still Alive

Growing up, I never much cared for fish. Unless it came out of a box with a picture of a fisherman in a yellow raincoat and was smothered in tartar sauce. Fish sticks may be the chicken nuggets of the sea, but when you’re a kid there’s nothing better. Fortunately, I grew up and myContinue reading “Honest, Abe is Still Alive”
