Is anyone else in this current geographical location hot? Seriously. I’m sweating like Big Bird at a Popeye’s. I just put this shirt on and it is now drenched. The computer monitor is fogging up like the cold winter windshield of a car filled with 5 teenage girls. I had to go to the garage […]

Car Wash

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

Hey, have you ever tried the car wash? I did! Just now! They hose you down, sud you, scrub you with large strips of cloth, spin off dirt with big, red brushes, then rinse you off. For extra money, you can have Rain-X and rust inhibitors! It’s fun! You know who really could use Rain-X? […]

Dreams: I Fought The Law

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

One day in a bizarre psychiatrist office: PhD: Mr. Paul, Looks like you are still having troubles sleeping. What was it this time? Aliens? Sheep dressed as clowns? Your mother-in-law? Patient: I was fighting a police officer. I didn’t want to fight him…it just kinda happened. PhD: Dreams about fighting the good guys is a […]

Come, all ye who are feeling unwell, yet not bad off enough to stay home from work! Join me in rampaging over those who are not sick in any way! We’ll infect those closest to us, and, after the dizziness passes, we’ll spread out pre-disease thick through the rest of the building! Coughers! To my […]

Introducing Mr. Puddin!

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Mr. Puddin thinks you are a delightful young rapscallion, clever as the day is long! Mr. Puddin is an ebullient egalitarian, eagerly engaging energetic youth to make the most of themselves. He also likes butter. So load up those potatoes, and cook that steak rare! None of that margarine spread for Puddin; no thank you! […]

Unexpected Twist at the Doctor’s Office

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

Today I gave a Walk-In Care nurse practitioner a pop quiz regarding why my jaw would hurt right around my lymph node. After the quiz, he suggested that I could have the symptoms of mumps. This led me to make an appointment at my PCP office. At the office, the MA took my vital signs, […]

FW: True Mainer

Saturday, December 29th, 2007

The Maine Turnpike began a new program this summer where they handed out fliers titled “Welcome to Vacationland.” These fliers will be handed out to all cars with license plates from Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey. The fliers state the following rules for visiting Maine: 1. That slope-shouldered farm boy you are snickering […]

Family Friendly Exhibit

Saturday, December 15th, 2007

Just a reminder to everyone: Though there may be some poo flinging and you may see the animals trying to mate with each other, this is a family friendly exhibit. *splat* Little girl. Little GIRL! Don’t stick your fingers in that. You don’t know where it’s been. OK, I guess you do know it’s been […]

Fun with Stereotypes

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

Eric asked me if I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth. I wasn’t, but I did think I might have been born with a sarcastic retort in my mouth. He said that would make me British. To be from the USA, I figured that I had to be born with a gun […]

*Dial tone* *beep-boop-boop-bop-beep-beep-bop* You have reached Mark. I’m not available right now, but if you leave a message I’ll get right back to you. Hi, Mark. It’s Roger. Hey, I was planning your wedding and wanted to know: should Debi do the face painting before the wedding party does the Thriller dance? I thought maybe […]

Flu Invulnerability

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Hey, pal, cough on me. No, seriously. Come right over here and hack in my face. That’s it. Let it all out. Everyone needs a good cough once in a while; you need to clear your lungs. Good job. Now…wipe your nose on the side of your hand. Good. Now shake hands with me. No, […]

Grocery Anxiety

Tuesday, November 6th, 2007

If I’ve learned anything from Peter’s blog, it’s that this forum is a place where I can safely expel the thoughts that build up inside me. When I think of things I would have like to have done or would have like to have said but would have led to a public shunning, I can […]

Hey, What Did We Learn Today?

Wednesday, April 5th, 2006

Some interesting facts about Canadians are: A Canadian rolls some dung into a ball. Then it digs its front legs into the ground and uses its back legs to push the ball of dung. A land of vast distances and rich natural resources, Canada became a self-governing dominion in 1867 while retaining ties to the […]

Gotta Love My Buds

Saturday, January 28th, 2006

My friend ‘vicodin’ left me this comment: vicodin Heh. How it goes? Buy it all. ASAP. Last discount in your live (AAAAA!!!!!). Take a rest. What a guy! In one short comment the shows his humor, his interest in my life, he gives me great purchasing tips as well as the time frame in which […]

In The Realm of Silly

Monday, January 2nd, 2006

“Ethel, there is something I need to tell you if our relationship is to continue.” “John? What is it?” “Darling, every month in the light of the full moon I go through the most hideous transformation.. For that night only I am not myself and I am controlled only by base instincts.” “Oh, John! Please, […]

In September, I took on one of the many rites of manhood that I had thus far avoided; I went white water rafting. I’m a good swimmer, who doesn’t mind a thrill ride so it’s odd that I hadn’t gone on this particular type of outing before. The ride was fun, at least the first […]

Customer Service Award

Wednesday, December 7th, 2005

This season’s customer service award goes to Stormy Kromer Mercantile USA for the email response that was sent the moment my wife placed an order: Dear KRISTEN Just thought we would let you know that in just a few minutes, your order will be carefully removed from our Stormy Kromer shelves, placed into some sort […]

Holiday Diet

Friday, November 25th, 2005

(A version of this was forwarded to me last holiday season, but too late for me to post it. Here’s my version.) 1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they’re serving […]

Nature Walk

Tuesday, August 9th, 2005

Yesterday, in the middle of the day, I was warned that after work we were going for a walk. My heart skipped a beat. A walk? Can my body handle such a thing? All I’m good for these days is sitting around the computer or reading in bed. Neither one of those is overly strenuous, […]

Poor Baumanns!

Saturday, June 18th, 2005

Kari and Mike just returned from vacation to find that their toilet had leaked, causing a great mess, and their air conditioner (AC) had stopped working. Being a .net and website acquaintance, I could not help but feel sorry for their great inconvenience. I decide that I needed to take up my guitar and begin […]
