Vote Xenomorph

When I said yesterday that there would be one notable exception to the parade of puppy socks proudly portrayed on my paws this week, I’m guessing that most of you might have figured that our one difference would likely pop up today. It is, after all, a pretty significant day, at least here in the United […]

It’s Election Day In The U.S. of A.

Hey, Hi! So, I finished the first draft of Project Hermey late last week, and then there was Halloween and assorted other weekend activities and, well, my brain is effectively tapioca when it comes to the fabrication of words up and stringing them together. At least, that is, if I want to be putting them […]

Five Things About Current Events

It’s Monday. That’s the day that follows the weekend. So, yeah, the weekend is over.  And that makes exactly no people happy. Well, except that one guy, but no one really likes him.  Plus, have you seen the way he watches you when you’re eating Chinese food? It’s like, dude, get your own kung pao. […]

Why I wish I wasn’t working today (not because it’s Monday) and other items of note

As is typical for a Monday, I’ve got lots of things running through my head today.  Some are thoughts informed by tidbits from the weekend past, like that final few crumbs of a morning muffin that gives just a hint of the enjoyment had previously.  Mmmm…double chocolate chip muffin. What?  Chocolate is too perfectly acceptable […]

A momentary break from destruction

I was glad to see that world was mostly still in one piece when I got up this morning.  That said, though, the images all around us from Monday night and today are, well, pretty damn staggering.  Sandy made landfall and left a mark that I’m not sure even Godzilla could live up to.  And […]

Thursday obviously means beer time

Well, no so much for me, at least from a consumption perspective, because I have to run early tomorrow morning.  And if there’s anything I’ve proven to myself so far, it’s that late night beer drinking + early AM running = Massive Ugh.  But that’s okay!  Because what I really meant was that today’s a […]

Weekend Debate: Taking a week off

After much consideration, I decided not to offer a weekend debate this weekend.  For one, we had the Vice Presidential debate last week and two more Presidential debates still to stomach endure come in the next few weeks.   So I think we can all take a break from the debating of nonsense topics, just this […]

Vote Puddin for POTUS

Like most Americans, I reckon, I watched some of the Vice Presidential debate last night on, um, I don’t know, that one channel with all the talking heads that don’t manage to really say anything.  Between you and me, I’m not sure why we have VP debates, anyway, since the Vice President of the United […]

Halleluiah, halleluiah! Praise the US Constitution!

I don’t think I can adequately express just how happy—no, elated—I am about today.  Sure, it’s Tuesday, which isn’t something to typically get all wound up over, and yes, I still had to go to work today rather than enact my plan of sitting around in a bathrobe while watching the entire Star Wars saga […]

Political Mailers: Effective Marketing or Pointless Evidence of a System Run Amuck?

If you’re anything like me – and let’s be honest, here, who wouldn’t want to be exactly like me? – you come home after a long day at the office, slip into your evening jacket, shake yourself up an ice cold martini, and leisurely peruse the day’s mail while puffing on a pre-dinner pipe in […]
