My New Job

I have written previous entries that have mentioned or touched on the fact that I was unemployed for most of 2010 and the first quarter of 2011. A span of fifteen months from May 2010 through August 2011. I did get some temp work on a part-time basis but even that was not until May [...]

Another Update on the Blog

I just wanted to take a moment to update my readers on what was supposed to be my self-imposed schedule, and what will actually occur from now through the foreseeable future. Originally my plan was to make at least one post a day, Monday through Friday. However, I quickly realized that due to “real life” getting [...]

One of my all-time favorite restaurants is Bennigan’s. It is an Irish pub-themed casual dining restaurant chain with locations throughout the United States, and in 14 countries and 15 territories outside the continental U.S. that was established in 1976 (the year I was born). I don’t remember exactly when I first went to a Bennigan’s, [...]

What I Do to Recharge (aka Downtime)

Sometimes when I am focused on one or two projects, I am so locked in on what I’m doing; I would work through the night if I didn’t have a clock or window to alert me to the loss of daylight. When I got my first computer that I purchased with my own money, I [...]

Being Unemployed Sucks

Before I start this rant, I know what you’re thinking. I can read your mind. You can put your mind at ease, because this will not be a forum for me to rail on my most recent former employer (or any other employer for that matter). First of all, I don’t hold any ill-will towards [...]

What Happened to Bottle Caps?

Over the weekend I was munching on one of my favorite candies: Bottle Caps. It’s right up there with Skittles as my top two favorites. Don’t ever give me SweeTarts and expect me to thank you because SweeTarts and Bottle Caps are NOT the same thing! Anyway, Nicole gave a box of Bottle Caps on [...]

Stand-Up Comedians

Stand-Up Comedy is one of my passions. I really enjoy going to see live comedy or watching comedy specials on TV. If I could go to the Improv every weekend, I would; at least when there is someone I would love to go see. I once flipped out on my mother because she had recorded [...]
