We are just Patriotic

April 7th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Stuff

I thought I knew what our financial situation was. I mean, I am the accounting department, you’d think I would have a firm grasp of this stuff. Yeah, well, more like my hand was in the general vicinity and maybe touching this concept. We recently had a slight reduction to the incoming cash flow and […]

Squirrels and bunnies and mice, oh my!

March 28th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Animals on my planet, Venting

We live in the city so I am always surprised at the wildlife issues we are confronted with. To be fair we don’t live downtown, we live in area that is predominantly single family homes with yards, but it is the city none the less. Last year a family of squirrels took up occupancy in […]

Of Great Importance (or not)

March 5th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Stuff, Venting

It has been a while since I’ve unloaded on the Internet and well, I have some questions. Do some drivers really believe that if they pretend to have no peripheral vision they are excused from letting other cars into their lane? A message to said drivers: Just because you act as though you can’ t see […]

Craig and his list

February 8th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Stuff

So I am a little afraid of Craigslist. I actually found my current job on Craigslist, so from the user standpoint I am a fan. Now, however, I am attempting to sell something on my buddy Craig’s list and that is a whole other ball of wax. The object in question is my husband’s Yamaha […]

I may need to get a life

January 21st, 2010 · 2 Comments · Good bad television, Stuff

So my People Magazine arrived last week. You know, the one with the “new improved” celebrity wannabe Heidi Montag on it. I promptly wrote a long scathing post expressing my dismay at her insecurities, her surgeries and how sad and pathetic it all was. I am not going to publish it because in rereading said […]

Monday is Rant-day

October 26th, 2009 · No Comments · Venting

It is Monday and the Bears lost (and I mean LOST!!!!) and I am feeling rant-y; so here goes: 1) At what point in time did it become acceptable for people to wear pajamas in public? I am not referring to Mom’s running their kids to school at 7:00am. I am talking about the-midday-shopping-at-the-grocery folks. Too […]

A public service announcement

July 1st, 2009 · No Comments · Stuff, Venting

I have officially had enough of passive aggressive behavior. How hard is it to say what you actually mean? I, for one, feel that I can handle the truth. I would really prefer outright aggressive behavior, but maybe I am alone. Passive aggresssion poses a number of problems, as I see it: First, it is […]

The Death of a DVR

May 14th, 2009 · No Comments · Stuff

I watched with anxiety as the examination began. It really didn’t look promising. My hands began to sweat. There was definitely something wrong, but I knew that. It was the reason that I had called this man. I knew my DVR was sick: I just didn’t know how bad it was. Like most examinations, there […]

When the solution is worse than the problem

February 4th, 2009 · No Comments · Stuff, Venting

Last week I went to the dentist to have him check out a molar that was intermittently giving me pain. Let me be clear; I am not dentist averse. My dentist is a wonderful man who is both gentle and kind. It is not his fault that my tooth was cracked. Nor was it his […]
