This Is Why I Don’t Go To the Doctor

So, we needed to get our gutters cleaned. They were gross. It caused us problems during the Snowpocalypse of 2010 with hugemongous icicles forming on the side of our house. They dangled from the gutters and attached to one of the spare bedroom’s window. And then it melted. Into the window. Onto a box of …

Kitty Tales – Felix and Housework

The mild-mannered feline pictured at left is my eldest and first kitty, Felix. I adopted him in Richmond when I was going to college there, much to my cat-allergic roommate’s chagrin. He wasn’t always mild-mannered, of course. And he still has some terrible habits. When he was wee, he would pounce my head in the …

Radio Silence

It’s been quiet here in the country the last week or so. I’ve had to drive in to the office every day this week which is soul crushing and draining to say the least. There’s a very good reason I take full advantage of my ability to work from home. Any of the time I’d …

Miscellaneous Happenings

By the above picture, you can probably guess what happened there. That was Saturday. I was headed out to crash Trey’s bachelor party and I decided, “What the hell? It’s a week before the wedding, I’ll just throw my phone on the concrete steps in front of the house and see what happens!” (Not really. …

Spam Day

Canned Unicorn Meat from Think Geek

I’ve decided to update the Weird Spam page once a week. It has been updated. And there were some weird ones this week. Frightening, really.

Weird Spam

I swear, I get some of the weirdest spam comments on the site. I’ve considered copying and pasting them to a “Funny Spam” Page. . . I think I just may do that. Whee! I keep deleting the comments, though, so I’ll have to start the page when I get more funny comment spam. Hooray! …

Comcast Causes Earth-Shattering Kaboom
