#105- Don’t expect to find an eyelet-covered rock under your chair.

Ever since I started using Delicious, I have steadily been compiling a list of my favorite things. I figure if Oprah can broadcast a list of hers, then so can I. Sorry, no giveaways though, kids. I compiled an Oprah-esque list of my favorite things. This cute beverage holder. It would look cute filled with…

#104- Cheap Therapy

My co-worker put in another great suggestion for this blog- that I learn to read my palm, so: I read my own palm. I used this website to guide me. My love line read that I give my heart away too easily, but I have a good handle on my emotions.  There was some “disappointment”…

#103- Naming rights

We had visitors in town this weekend, and Brad got me started on reading his New Yorker magazines. I was particularly intrigued by the cartoon caption contest, so I looked into it a bit more online today, and: I entered in the New Yorker cartoon caption contest. My submission was “With all due respect, Officer,…

#102- Fine Dining

My roommate has a class 6 nights a week these days. I’m not sure how anyone expects me to eat without my live-in chef slaving away. I’ve been forced to cook, which would be fine if my creations didn’t taste like canine feces compared to his. Last night, I made this recipe and: I was…

#101- HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BIG SIS!

I wished someone Happy Birthday through a blog.  Let me tell you a little about my sister and frequent commenter, Loyster. She has very curly hair.  She used to ingest a Hershey bar and can of Coke for breakfast almost everyday in High School.  She has worked at McDonald’s.  She loves to sing and has actually…

#99- A day off, of sorts

On Friday, we had a staff appreciation day at Navy Pier. It was fun to get out of the office despite the fact that it was 40 degrees. I spent my $5 allowance and: I rode the Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier. Actual live action shots coming soon-they are on a co-worker’s camera. Trust me,…

#98- God Bless the Internet

A year or two ago I found out about the best thing online ever. Yes, I’m sure I was late on the trend, but nonetheless I embraced the hell out of it and still do. It’s a website that allows you to type in an artist or band and it will automatically generate similar music…

#97- Chipping Away

One of my life ambitions is to see/visit all 50 United States.  I sometimes like to make a list of how many I’ve been to and stare at it.  Co-worker Patrick had some free time and came up with a very fun game. So: I compared my list of states visited to some of my…

#96- They can’t all be home runs

A friend, fellow board member, beautiful lady and co-worker of mine, Esther, works each day perched atop one of those large exercise balls. Coincidentally she is the same broad who taught me to knit. Man is she versatile. Anyways, I’ve heard this is very good for you and Esther has mentioned it has improved her…

#95- It’s going to be a long, unmemorable summer.

Sometimes the lack of postings on this blog is due to me tending to my various jobs and social life, but lately I’ve simply not been doing new stuff. I realized I need to step things up a bit around here, if for no other reason than I’m obsessed with looking at the stats page…
