Unemployment is a full time job

It’s been almost 3 months to the day that I left my job in the city.  I’ve spent most of that time fighting with the New York State Department of Labor. Filing for unemployment is one of the biggest hassles on earth.  Oh not the actual question/answer filing part, it’s the aftermath that kills you. … Continue reading Unemployment is a full time job

I guess an apple looks KIND OF like a heart…

Yesterday I opened my email and to my absolute delight, I found the perfect Valentine’s day gift! Do you see what that is people?  That is an iPod that has been engraved.  ENGRAVED! I don’t know, maybe it’s just me.  Maybe I’m fine with just owning the iPod.  I mean, I can see shelling out… Continue reading I guess an apple looks KIND OF like a heart…

I liked it better when it WAS Sim City

Sim City was one of the best computer games of my youth. Right up there with Oregon Trail. It totally ruled. I’m not ashamed to admit that I logged a lot of hours bulldozing, building, and rebuilding after some stupid natural disaster wrecked my town. (Really, who could have predicted in a town with NO… Continue reading I liked it better when it WAS Sim City

The Fourth…in photos!

Unfortunately, none of these will be nearly as awesome as my hot dog picture from last year. The weekend started with us buying all of the essentials; namely tequila, margarita mix and stuff for quesadillas. Boo and I didn’t exactly get the memo about this being an “American” holiday. Whatever. Those quesadillas were delicious. Friday… Continue reading The Fourth…in photos!
