Is anyone else upset by the removal of the letter e from the names of web sites? It was bad enough when it was just flickr, tumblr, and a few others, but then I heard about a site called toggl today, so I feel it’s worth bringing this up again. I don’t think other vowels are being attacked at this rate, and that’s just not fair. It’s time to mix it up a little with the missing vowels, people. I was going to suggest creating a medical site called doctr, for instance, but apparently that’s already been done. Good job! We’ve got a lot of catching up to do, though. Actors, please make actr, or if that’s already been done, how about ctor? For vitamins, how about vtamns? I could think of others, but that’s your job.

I don’t know if you’re familiar with Liberty Tax Service, but they hire people to dress up like the Statue of Liberty to promote the company’s services around this time of the year. Anyway, I was at the supermarket getting tortillas and envelopes (like ya’ do), and I witnessed the Statue of Liberty buying a lottery ticket. What an uncomfortable statement about the welfare of our country.

I can understand having some different scents to choose from, and maybe one with bleach, and one that’s free of dyes and perfumes. But I seriously counted no less than twenty different varieties of Tide laundry detergent at the store yesterday, each in three or four different sizes and “concentrations.”

I think it’s time for an intervention. Mr. Procter? Mr. Gamble? You need to stop creating new versions of Tide. You have a problem. I think it stems from some kind of insecurity. “What if the customers don’t like the Mountain Spring scent? We’d better make a Spring & Renewal scent too, just in case.”

I bought Cheer instead.



That’ll be funny if Clark Kent gets contacts, and then, like, everyone knows.



One of the most satisfying things about wearing corduroy pants is the “voop!” sound when you walk. Then again, maybe the “voop!” sound is reminding you that you have fat thighs. In that case, perhaps it’s less satisfying.

Sure enough, although it was, at its height, 63 degrees yesterday afternoon, today it’s snowing profusely.

It’s a very pretty snowstorm though, provided you’re looking at it through a window instead of standing in it. No snowstorm is pretty when you’re standing in it. It’s difficult to notice beauty when you’re being pelted in the eyes with it.



Does this ever happen to you? I cooked some cup-o-noodles, poured some Diet Coke, and then stirred the Diet Coke.

I just ate a salt bagel, so I’m now surrounded by a veritable quarry of salt on the floor of my cubicle. If only it were gold instead of salt. *Sigh*

Why would anyone want to have “Dinner with Shamu”? Like really, if I wanted whale snot on my food, I’d eat sushi.

You know you’re unfocused at work when you catch yourself spinning around and around in your task chair for the cheap high of dizziness.
