#144- A little inspiration with the morning coffee…

Sometimes I get really caught up in all of the things on my to-do list, other peoples’ problems and just general stress.  It’s easy to plan a night of relaxation or tell myself that I’ll go exercise to relieve some stress, but the activities that are good for me are more often the ones that…

#143- Run, Cogsy, Run

I’ve become rather portly in my young age, and lately as I’ve been buying new frocks for work, I noticed something.  I AM AN ENTIRE SIZE LARGER THAN NORMAL. I thought to myself, “f this” and: I joined a running club.   This running club.  From now on, I am Cogsy, Winter Warrior.   Fun…

#142- Mini Mes

  I found out how many people in the U.S. have my name.   According to the site, there are “one or fewer people” with my name in the country! Sweet. You can find out for your own name, here.  One of my dad’s lame jokes is actually somewhat usable in this situation… Me: I’m…

#141- Coming soon to a Four Seasons near you.

I invented a cocktail. The epicurean ingredients: The end product: RECIPE: one shot cheap vodka,…

#140- The Dark Night

Last night I worked at my waitressing job, because I love being a waitress and working numerous jobs. In any event, last night was a first as: I served tables with no electricity. There was some sort of power outage for a few of the blocks surrounding the restaurant, and for most of the night…

#139- Something or other

Today,  I ordered “something”. I visited this website that sends you something for $10.  I can’t wait to see what I get!  Check back for updates.     Fun Factor: 10

#138- Saving myself from eternal damnation one book at a time

My dad has been known to send me newspaper clippings, letters, “holiday cash” and other random things in the mail.  This week was a first- he sent me a chain mail letter, so: I took part in a book exchange via snail mail.  Thanks, Frank.  I had instructions to send to one of my dad’s…

#137- Vegas on ludes

A phenomenon has taken over the dive bars in Ohio and I have jumped on the bandwagon.  I’ve been in Ohio twice in the last month and both times I’ve observed a variety of twenty-somethings, alcoholics and vagabonds playing an obsessive game.  So, with my trusty friend, Red, I gave it a whirl.   I…
