I'm too tired to come up with a more clever title. New carpet installed. New bathtub and shower installed. Painters hired. Landscaping complete. Realtor on the hunt for possibilities. Mortgage preapproval done. All of this completed while we're packing the clutter we want to keep and moving it to storage so the house is more presentable to prospective buyers. And I'm stil working overtime every week.

But man, I need a vacation.

Pass Out Drunk And Still Be The Life Of The Party

I haven't passed out drunk since my brother's bachelor party 25 years ago. Thankfully nobody cared enough to torture me like these guys. I experience schadenfreude seeing photos of this nature but still laugh my silly ass off. Go »

Recent conversation with Brenda: me: I’m thinking of buying that 5-hour energy stuff. Brenda: Think it’ll be worth it? me: Depends on what it costs – that whole dollars to extra push-ups ratio. Go »

Got Those Grocery Shop On Saturday Blues

I'm starting to shift my thinking on who's the problem in my relationship with UOAS. Even the most passably inane thing she says requires a sarcastic comment from me. It seems to have become a moral imperative in my mind. Go »
