Fried Day

Today has been a glorious food day, and I hope the momentum continues forever.  Back when I started this shift, I was all, “Oh hell yes, I’m going to be eating breakfast out every got damn day!” but I think it’s only happened three times in the past two years, today being the third time. […]

Cryday

Look, I was going to try to make today only about happy things but then it was the day that Jes left and I ended up crying like a big whiny baby.  Jes was the first friend I made in my department at work, and I have looked up to her ever since the first […]

Bleakend

Okay okay my weekend wasn’t exactly bleak, but it wasn’t full of vim and vigor either. Saturday was, of course, a work day.  Sunday we tried to go swimming but the pool was absolutely seething with screaming children so that didn’t quite pan out.  Yesterday I decided we should probably go do something, so I dragged […]

The perils of latenightblogging

I was determined to do that Detroit post while I was still technically on vacation, but my time management skills seem to have been damaged in transit.  We arrived home later than anticipated thanks to the joys of standby travel, and after eating and swimming it was somehow tomorrow?  I’m not sure how it happened but I […]

Go Folk Yourself

What up y’all!  It’s almost Friday and I barely had to do anything this week!  What a time to be alive!  As I write this nightblog, I am reminded of the reason lunchblogging is so appealing: nighttime is for relaxing, man.  I’m in my jimjams and have some smooth jamz on so let’s do this thang. […]

The Return of the Lunchblog

Okay I made a title and just started typing.  Let’s do this. Actually let’s not do much of anything, I’m tired. After a three-day weekend, work usually seems hard and boring.  Luckily, today has been relatively easy, and there was even cake!  One of my department’s managers is leaving after 6 years, so we had cake […]

Food, floats, and fun

Why yes I did just rip off an old McDonald’s slogan for this blog title.  I gotta level with you–eventually I may skip doing titles altogether because that mess is hard.  I’m so bad at naming them that they barely even relate to the post so when I go back and try to link to […]

Alison al fresco

I am going to state a controversial opinion: I hate outside.  Outside is where the bugs live. There is no air conditioning outside, and rarely is there electricity or potable water. Animals live outside, but only the gross and/or mean ones.  If not for outside, I would probably never have fallen off a bike, or […]

Chicken fings and other things

Like most people, there are definitely things I’ve said in the past that I continue to be embarrassed about ages after they happened.  Like that time I interviewed for a job circa 2003, and answered “So tell us what you know about Waste Management” with “Tell me what you know about Waste Management”.  I didn’t get that […]

Maximum matching

Whatever I type here is going to end up on Facebook so I guess it should be interesting but guess what?  IT AIN’T!  I have nothing exciting to tell you but I’m afraid that taking blog breaks on weekdays will result in this whole thing derailing.  I’m trying to keep this blog train chugging down […]
