Hacky-sack hat 1

Every time I see one of these Rasta hats, I think to myself: “Why on earth would anyone want to wear a big giant hacky sack on their head?” I don’t know who decided these hats are cool, but to me they are definitely not cool.

Tommy Bobble-head

My brother Tom has a bobble head of NHL Goalie Martin Brodeur in his room. It was given to him by his friend a long time ago because it kinda looks like him. Tell me if you think it resembles Tom or not, the picture I posted is a couple years old though. I think ...

Grand entrance

Yesterday morning, our department had a “Town Hall” meeting where the entire department gathers together. I set my alarm clock for 7:30, slept through it and didn’t wake up until 8:30. It wasn’t until after I got out of the shower that I remembered the meeting (It was 8:45 by this time). I knew they ...

Winston Churchill quotes of the week

This week’s quotes of the week come from Winston Churchill and they illustrate the mood I’m in this evening. “History will be kind to me for I intend to write it”. “Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides ...

Cell phone pain

My cell phone hates me. Every week or so the battery starts dying and I always like to fully drain the battery before recharging. It always seems that by the time the battery is fully dead, it’s either a Friday night or a Saturday night; the worst time for a cell phone to die. I ...
