Balticon 43?

April 27th, 2009 No Comments

Ha, sorry for the dorky post of yesterday. While I don’t usually condone such silliness, I did feel the need to edit that garbage. If you want to check out the cached version, go ahead. It will just enforce how silly I get. So, I am going to Balticon 43, at the glorious Hunt Valley [...]


Vegetarian week, report out

April 27th, 2009 No Comments

We have this process thing at my company where we study a process and decide how to make it better. When we determine the cost/labor saving outcome, we do a “report out” to summarize what we discovered and hopefully implement the changes. A few weeks ago now, I decided to go a week eating NO [...]


customer service?

So, I travel a lot for my job. This means I get to stay in nice hotels, full service hotels like Sheraton, Marriott, Hilton and of course, the nice full service boutique hotels. I don’t always stay in these super-plush nice hotels. I would say only about 40% of the time, the other 60% I [...]


how the time flies…

Maybe I should redo this blog. I call it Life is not for the Living because it always seems to be that we all live in the now, without any thoughts about the past or the future. Myself, I think I spend way too much time in the past or the future, never in the [...]


Technology is great…when it works

April 9th, 2009 No Comments

I have been wanting to post, regardless of my crazy schedule. Posting at work has not been an option, I have been CRAZY busy lately. Posting at home has not been an option, the crazy interwebs have not been accessible from my humble abode. I can only hope I can get this up and posted [...]


A veggie head for a week

March 31st, 2009 No Comments

I’m defecting. Going over to the other side. Trying out vegetarianism. Is that a real word? I’m not so sure. Anyhooooo Why? Well, I’m not going all activist or anything but let’s face it. Growing animals for food is pretty hard on the environment butttttttttt, on the other hand we as human beings as meant [...]


I was doing so good, too.

Where do I begin? I haven’t been in jail, no worries there. I can apparently get a lawyer through my company, hooray! I won’t have to go into court alone! Some silver lining in the cloud after all. Speaking of silver linings. I still have a job. I say that because the axe is beginning [...]


mmm, shoes

February 26th, 2009 No Comments

I love shoes. I just do. Ever since becoming a fiscally responsible adult, I have curtailed my shoe shopping. That doesn’t stop me from endless browsing. I love Christian Louboutin. I just do. I drool over these shoes. I would love to own a pair, but at those prices? Come on! Who pays 800 for [...]


Worst. Day. Ever. The next day.

I was able to talk to Jason, so now I can give skeletal details. I always tend to over-dramatize things, so maybe it’s good to keep that in mind. I have to go to Federal Court. The charge has the words “willfully” and “disobey”. I dont want to say any more. Yikes. I did not [...]
