Hi, and welcome to the…

…Rachel Ray network. Is it just me, or does the Food Network seem to be turning into the Rachel Ray network? Not that I have anything against her (ok, the use of the word “Stoup”, always giggling after saying EVOO, and her incessant piling of junk to carry it to the table get on my […]

Just Had To Share

Donald Rumsfeld is giving the president his daily briefing. He concludes by saying: “Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed.” “OH NO!” the President exclaims. “That’s terrible!” His staff sits stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the President sits, head in hands. Finally, the President looks up and asks, “How many is a […]

I’m beginning to understand

…why people who purchase and own nice things are increasingly irritated at cheap, inferior knock-offs. Take this item on ebay: I’ve had this ROLEX Submariner for a few years, the minutes hand on it is disconnected and I have never taken it in to get it fixed. I know the watch when first purchased was […]

Microsoft … not so quick.

Face it. You’re Gonna Die.

From the “Life” section of the Hampton Roads “Daily Press” newspaper: Q: I’ve always heard that it is essential to wash your hands after using the restroom.

Morning Humour

We had a tornado drill. We’re underneath a parking garage (funny how corporations just love putting the nerds in a basement), and there’s a Public Address announcement repeating itself at these times: “This is a tornado drill. Please move quickly away from any and all windows.” Somebody yelled out: “Quick, get to a DOS prompt!”

Why, oh tell my why

can’t ignorance be painful? Here’s two examples: (1) Client prints at 1 in the morning. Prints over 100 individual documents (they’re certificates and had to be printed in colour, so…), and about half way through, the printer jams…badly. There’s five individual certificates jammed in the rear of the printer. Does the client email me? No! […]

Feelings

…whoa…feelings… I’m hitting a wall. I’ve got some things I want to blog about, but can’t find the words to say them. I’ve started the post about a dozen times, each time deleting it, not because it’s hurtful, harmful or embarassing. Just because the words didn’t flow out the way I wanted them to. Ever […]

Armed […]

Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth

ABBA fans? C’mon, admit it. If you’re my age, you probably were…and still may be. So, there’s two holy grails. Just Like That, and Just A Notion. Neither officially released, except as part of the ABBA Undeleted medley.

True to form…

…assorted ramblings from inside my head. Why is it that a church feels it needs to put a rigid time limit on the Sunday service? Unless you’re benig televised or put on the radio, there’s no reason, IMHO, for anyone to get upset if the service runs over that “allotted hour period”. After all, most […]
