The Party Planning Committee

Today was wire-to-wire busy at work. First time since I've started that I've been on the go nonstop at CenturyCo. I guess I've gotten spoiled, not having to sweat over tight publishing deadlines. So, I'm on the Party Planning Committee. I didn't volunteer for this, but rather, inherited the role when I accepted the job. … Continue reading The Party Planning Committee

Teddy FTW

I have been nominated by Claudette (a writer of words, etc.) for a major award. (Or maybe I'm just channeling Ralphie's dad, aka The Old Man, from A Christmas Story.) Instead of a leg lamp though, it's a Special Blogger Award. I'd go into more detail, but it's some real high-level stuff and I'm not … Continue reading Teddy FTW

What’s Old is New Again

I have a coworker who just started watching The Office. He may be late to the party, but boy do I envy him right now.

A few days ago, I diagnosed a case of tonsillitis over Facebook. I don't know whether to laugh about this or consider enrolling in medical school, but it did make me feel all smart and doctor-y. One of my friends messaged me looking for advice because her daughter had a white spot on her tonsil. … Continue reading Jumping The Shark

I’m Bleeding to Death, Pineapple Jones!

This morning we had a benefits enrollment meeting at work to discuss health insurance coverage. As the meeting was winding down, our HR lady asked if there were any questions. I had an overwhelming urge to respond, What if you have a preexisting condition that is highly contagious in enclosed quarters? Can you still get … Continue reading I’m Bleeding to Death, Pineapple Jones!

Enchanted With Amy

Yesterday, I professed my love for a beautiful woman over a Facebook status update. I'm the kind of guy who likes to shout things from the rooftop, and I figured a relationship like ours deserved attention. I couldn't hold back any longer - it was time to share this happy news with the world. And … Continue reading Enchanted With Amy
