    Making it easy to say "yes"

    • 11 Comments
    Through my recent shopping expeditions and resulting rationalizations (to others, not myself), I hear myself saying things like "it would be WRONG not to buy it since it's on sale" or "if you don't buy it now, it may be gone when you decide you want it...

    Like math, vacations are hard

    • 8 Comments
    The psychological condition that precludes me from total vacation relaxation has not abated this year. In fact, I believe that I have created more projects for myself than I could accomplish. Granted, some of the projects may appear to be relaxing; reading...

    Funny things that were said at Christmas this year

    "Stop asking about presents or I'll burn the tree down" "Just like on Tila Tukwila" "She told me I hung a cat off the balcony...in a paper bag" "I think there's a shortage of nuns" "My head is lumpy. Want to feel it?" "Your mom kicked your...

    Scaring a kid on Christmas Day...

    ...playing Catch Phrase: "This is my job. I shoot people here" <points to head> I'm sure mom and dad had to have a conversation with him later about why I'm not as scary as I seem. Pretty sure his eyes were going to pop out of his head.

    Happy Holidays, Y'all

    • 9 Comments
    Just wanted to wish everyone Happy Holidays. Oh yes, I am one of those politically correct "happy holidays" people....so if you are celebrating something, I hope it's a good one. And if you aren't, then have a nice day. And if you are offended by "happy...

    Hot damn... I'm homework ! With all the requisite weirdness brought to you by technorati. Uh, don't study too hard over the holidays.

    Speaking of movies...

    • 15 Comments
    the fact that my mental voice these days sounds like Timbaland (and so that is what I am going to call it) is, at least in part, the reason why I will not be seeing this . Timba says "do not see this movie, baby girl". And so it shall be. (Hey,...

    I suppose that when you are young, the Billy Joel song is so uncool that it's cool again. To me, it's just uncool. But the video is funny .

    Horrible movie

    • 10 Comments
    I saw Margot at the Wedding last night. And as much as I don't want to do movie reviews here, because I care about you, I need to tell you how horrible it was. The plot was limited and Margot was mean-spirited. It was like watching someone step on a dog...

    What to do during your holiday down time? Polish up your resume.

    • 9 Comments
    This time of year, I'm burning excess vacation days and you may be doing the same or hiding from in-laws in your "man room". Spending major bank on holiday gifts could have you thinking about your paycheck ("Am I being paid what I am worth?") and even...

    A top ranked career blog? This one?

    Evidently so . Alrighty then. I guess that means I should talk about something career related again soon.

    To the uninitiated commenters...

    ...who think it's OK to drop a thinly veiled (or not) pitch for their company or a full article into comments; are you high? <Sigh> They probably aren't aware enough to click around the blog and likely won't see this post anyway, but that crap...

    I could watch this a hundred times (and I might). That's my friend Suzanne's son on the left. He's got some moves (and some curves....interesting). Nice work by OfficeMax. Imagine that it's a brand building campaign, because I'm not really thinking...

    Paperwork

    • 18 Comments
    You know how you used to say that you were catching up on "paperwork"? OK, so maybe I am dating myself, but I'd guess that a good 2/3 of you know what I am talking about. Well, what do you call it now that it's not paper? It's not just e-mail. I hate...

    BCS...who's in?

    • 18 Comments
    What a year. What do you do about the BCS? If I had to guess, it's LSU and OSU in the National Championship Game (and don't tell me Les Miles didn't soak up every bit of TV coverage regarding the coaching job at Michigan mostly to get his teams name in...

    No, really. All you have to say is "no". No,no,no,no,no,no. That's all.

    I love my home office (and the fact that I can work from home), but I'm starting to lose it a little bit. Not enough to go into the office. But I'm starting to talk to the dog (more) and look forward to the sound of the postal delivery truck. Most of...
