Search Term Roulette

Search Term Roulette

Fellow bloggers like to write posts about interesting search terms that bring people to their blogs.  It’s a pretty regular feature on The Bloggess, and ACWMH just did a post of her own.  This got me to wondering about my search terms.  In just a little over a year I’ve had exactly two search terms that were defined. Videos showing a small cog in a bihg machine – No bihg mystery here, considering the title of my blog, despite the…

Life Made Me a Mix Tape

Life Made Me a Mix Tape

Think back.  Sorry, yes there is homework in this post.  Again, think back.  Did all your serious relationships come with a song?  You know, that “we have to have a song” type of relationship?  I’m sure there will be “non-conformists” that say no.  I’m not one of them.  When I think back on my past relationships, I can pick five serious ones going back to when I was 14 years old.  Michelle #1 (number designation will be apparent in a second), Rhonda, LaManna,…

It’s My BBirthday!

It’s My BBirthday!

No, I didn’t finger fuck the “B” key when I typed that.  It’s not my birthday.  It is my BLOG BIRTHDAY!  Just A Small Cog is a whopping one year old today!  If you’ve even followed me a little bit then you knew it was going to be a beer up there and not cake.  A few months ago I updated the About This Small Cog page after a look back to when I started.  I think that section bears repeating here:…

Let’s Get LIIT!

Let’s Get LIIT!

No, I didn’t spell that wrong.  It’s an acronym that stands for Long Island Iced Tea.  A more accurate title would be Let’s NOT Get LIIT Ever Again!  Tanya, from The Incurable Dreamer, recently made a comment on one of my posts that mentioned LIIT, and that got me thinking about a good story. I can already hear you thinking, “What did you do Ari?”  I can’t blame you for that.  Usually I am the one front and center (read guilty) in…

Thanks For Getting Me In Trouble Native Americans!

Thanks For Getting Me In Trouble Native Americans!

This is really a retarded story.  I don’t know why I am telling it.  It’s just been stuck in my head this week because something (I think it might be the below commercial) reminded me of it. I was around 9 or so and in this particular case (there were others) my forbidden item was not quite as destructive as the ones in this commercial.  They were a pair of moccasins, or what my child brain considered to be moccasins.  Pictures might…

Eye Just Can’t Help Myself

Eye Just Can’t Help Myself

A couple years ago I tore the retina in my left eye.  It’s a whole thing that really doesn’t have a humorous note.  Unless you count the fact that after the surgery I was required to stare at my feet for six weeks and had to sit in one of those massage chairs and drink my beer from a straw because I couldn’t tilt my head back.  I’m counting that. In the year after the initial surgery I had to have…

National Nothing Day

National Nothing Day

It seems like every morning when I flip on the news as I am getting ready for work, the anchor is telling me it is National Something Day.  This morning I was duly informed that it was National Take Your Daughter and Sons to Work Day.  Well, my daughter and sons live many miles away, are in their 20’s, and have jobs of their own.  So, I don’t think I’ll be observing this one.  However, it got me to thinking. …

What’s the Over/Under on this contest?

What’s the Over/Under on this contest?

Prepare yourself. This next statement is going to be profound. There are two types of people in this world. Those who roll the toilet paper from the top and those who roll it from the bottom. (There are actually two other types. Those that love the movie Napoleon Dynamite and those that loath it. Where have I heard this before? For now, just pretend there are only two types.) I think my preference is abundantly clear from the following tweet: I’m…

Ranger Rick? Try Ranger Dick!

Ranger Rick? Try Ranger Dick!

I spent the last weekend on an Appalachian Trail backpacking trip with my hiking partner, Sawyer, The Trail Wonder Dog.  While we were lying in our two man one man/one dog tent in the dead of the night, all alone in the wilderness, I remembered a story about the time I went camping a few years ago with my sons and thought it would be a good blog topic.  Then I got slightly distracted when I heard about 42 coyotes (not even sure they…

The 100 year old beer

The 100 year old beer

OK, it’s not really a 100 years old.  It’s only 14 years old. What in the hell am I talking about? Why it’s this one can of beer I’ve had in my fridge that whole time.  I’m sure a few questions leap to mind. Why do you have a 14 year old beer in your fridge? Why do you call it a 100 year old beer? What do you plan to do with this can of beer? Are you retarded…
