The One With The List

The One With The List

You know what the list is right?  Come on, you have to know.  OK, for those of you not in the know I’ll explain.  There’s actually not that much explaining to do.  The list is just that, a list of five celebrities that your significant other has given you permission to get busy with if the opportunity ever presented itself.  And by “get busy”, I mean do sex stuff to each other.  I thought long and hard (hehe hard) and came up with…

Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. Now Get The Fuck Out.

Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. Now Get The Fuck Out.

That may seem like a harsh title without any context.  It will probably still seem harsh even after I’ve given you some.  About 9 months ago my wife suggested that we host Christmas this year for our relatives.  I told her sure, yeah, why not?  Not because I really wanted to do it, but because I knew that all my relatives were scattered across two countries and this would NEVER happen.     Eleven of the relatives that were invited…

I’m Officially Old Now

I’m Officially Old Now

Today I completed half a century of orbits around the sun.  Last year on this day I wrote a post about how I was hoping my 49th orbit would go quickly because I was ready to get out of the purgatory of the 40’s age group where you aren’t young, but you’re also not quite old yet.  I got my wish.  The year really flew by.  There were ups and downs.  I had to spend a significant amount of time…

I kind of got an award?

I kind of got an award?

My good blogging buddy, Christoper Waldrop, recently received a Liebster award.  It’s an award that is given by fellow bloggers and you’re supposed to pass it on to five other bloggers.  Chris, understandably, did not want to leave anyone out by giving it to only five other bloggers, but he did list some of his favorite daily reads.  This small cog was most humbled and honored to be included among those.  So, while I didn’t exactly get a Liebster award, a…

Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How?

Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How?

I was bored so I decided to type in the five W’s and How into a Google search field and see what it came up with for the first ten predictions of each one.  Then I figured I would put my own spin on them.  I don’t recommend using any of my verbiage for a term paper though. Who is – Who is who?  I think you forgot to finish your query there. Who should I start – I can only assume…

My Own Disclosure

My Own Disclosure

No, I didn’t get sexually harassed by Demi Moore at a tech company like Michael Douglas did in Disclosure.  Nothing quite that dramatic, but something did happen to me.  Before I tell you, let me ask you a question.  Can a man be sexually assaulted?  I’m sure most of you will quickly say, “Well of course he can!”  However, in the back of your mind, do you really believe that?  Tell you what, let’s stick a pin in that and get…

Boy, did he knock on the wrong door

Boy, did he knock on the wrong door

Let’s set the scene: Single man is sitting in his condo circa 2001/02 watching TV.  It’s probably a Thursday night and NBC is still enjoying it’s Must See TV heyday, so single man is probably watching Friends or ER. *Knock Knock on the front door* Single man gets up and answers the front door where he sees another man holding a clipboard. “Hello,” says clipboard man with a smile on his face. “Hi,” says single man. “I’m in your neighborhood today asking…

Halloween Petition: Give Me A Treat And Sign!

Halloween Petition: Give Me A Treat And Sign!

This is going to be short and sweet, which ironically, is the characteristics of the “fun size” candy passed out on Halloween.  Fun size?  What’s fun about smaller candy?  It would be more appropriate if they called it “giant sized”, but only because that’s the way a normal candy bar would appear to a giant.  Damn it!  I’ve already gone off on a tangent.  This isn’t even what the topic of this post is supposed to be about.  Let me try…

Not The Hiking Story I Thought I Would Be Telling

Not The Hiking Story I Thought I Would Be Telling

“No plan survives first contact with the enemy.” – Paraphrased from Field Marshal Helmuth Karl Bernhard Graf von Moltke “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no telling where you might be swept off to.” –J.R.R. Tolkien Well, I’m back from my hiking adventure and as you can probably surmise from the title and the quotes that followed, things did not go exactly according to…

Think I’ll Go For A Stroll

Think I’ll Go For A Stroll

This isn’t really a post.  It’s more of a “Yes, I’m still alive” message.  I know I haven’t posted anything lately and there might be 2.5 people out there wondering why.  I also have been mostly absent from reading and commenting on my favorite blogs.  Don’t worry.  I haven’t thrown in the towel.  I’ve just been slammed at work lately and I’ve also been consumed with preparing for something.  Hmm, what was it I was preparing for?  Oh yeah, I…
