Go get ’em, baby!

Go get ’em, baby!

My sweetheart is starting a new job at one of my favorite restaurants in Richmond. I used to hang out there all the time when I worked at The Ad Agency™. She’s at training this afternoon, and then will start as a server. It’s the rite of passage for the restaurant/bar industry, and hopefully Lady […]

Full speed ahead

Full speed ahead

After trying to sell my 2004 Element since last October on Autotrader.com and craigslist.org, I started shopping around for a replacement vehicle. The 1995 Montero graciously bequeathed to me by Alexa still sits proudly in our driveway, and while he’s still very serviceable, Monty is much happier when he’s not a daily driver. Low gas […]

Lady Jaye and I play a lot of World of Warcraft, a massively multiplayer online game wherein two factions – Horde and Alliance – battle head to head. We play on the same server as our friends Alexa and Father Figure, along with some other folks with whom I played Dark Age of Camelot. At […]

Best and Worst Gibberish Gadgets of 2005

Best and Worst Gibberish Gadgets of 2005

After reviewing 42 items in 2005, I figured it was a good time for a look back and the gadgets and games I covered last year in Gibberish. As is typical I suppose, the things I reviewed ran parallel to whatever I was concentrating at the time. After we got our Sony PSPs, I rattled […]

And You Thought Your Mother-in-law Was Bad

And You Thought Your Mother-in-law Was Bad

I found this Boing-Boing story about a wasp that can mind control a roach, thanks to a link in an Ars Technica forum. So basically it goes down like this: a particular type of wasp flies down on a roach, stings it in the dome and injects a venom in it’s brain. The roach loses […]

Get Lost

Get Lost

With temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s yesterday, I hopped on Cylon and did a quick spin around the county. You may recall that I get lost rather easily, but with the weather so nice I figured that getting hopelessly lost may not be such a bad thing. I did one normal route […]

Restitution

Restitution

Lady Jaye and I received a check from Global Resources today in compensation for the loss of our camcorder in December. Who the fuck is Global Resources, you ask? They are the business-to-business partner that linked up Costco with Sealy. Costco buys Sealy mattresses in bulk and resells them to their members. Global Resources apparently […]
