I’m happy to report that my afternoon here at the office was most pleasantly interrupted by the early arrival of the Merman and his Mermate! They stopped by the office […]

I stopped by Radio Shack (Slogan: “You’ve got questions? We’ve got batteries.”) this morning, looking for a battery for my cordless phone. I have a Sony cordless that is, to […]

Let me start this by saying that I like babies. I really do. I used to be one, once, and I think I was pretty good at the job. I […]

I am losing my mind. Our company is managed in a novel (read: silly) way. Sales are done and orders are taken here in our Atlanta office. When an order […]

Yes, yes, I know, it’s been far too long. Don’t worry. Recent events have given me a supply of blog topics sufficient to carry me through several weeks. Let’s start […]

The uneasy (and unlikely) live-and-let-live agreement between me and the large cellar spider in my bathroom ended last night. In retrospect, I really should have seen this coming. A week […]

My employer failed to make my payroll deposit again today. I know this because my bank called this morning to tell me I’m overdrawn. Nice. I was thinking this morning […]

Well, here I am, blogging from the company’s new headquarters, just one mile north of the old one. My entire life (well, at least my professional life) is contained in […]

Well, it’s moving time. The management of our company have decided that we’re moving, about a mile up the road, into another office space. I have spent the entire morning […]

A few days ago, after visiting the World Trade Center site in New York, I wrote an ill-advised blog, which you’ll still find further down the list. I haven’t deleted […]

I didn’t feel like coming back to the hotel tonight and needed to keep busy. I decided I’d go walk around a bit. I thought a good place to start, […]

OK, this is a chain blog. It looks like fun, though, so I’m passing it on. It came (most recently) from illusio. “I want everyone who reads this to ask […]

I went across the street tonight to a grocery store to buy something for tomorrow’s breakfast. The company credit card was declined. Apparently payroll isn’t the only thing this company’s […]

Work here in New York is going well. In fact, it’s gone so smoothly that my biggest problem is actually back at the hotel. I think I’ve got it solved, […]

It’s been a long, strange, and trying week. Trying to catch up with work which piled up during my last trip has been a struggle, and tensions at work have […]

Despite several hours of recent exposre to the Manilow Virus, as Dr. Omally would call it, I managed to rally and have a reasonably decent weekend. Some local stupidity did […]

I can see light at the end of the tunnel. It might be the light of an oncoming train, but at least that’s something, isn’t it? Despite the persistent feeling […]

I miss knowing that my best was always good enough. I miss my cat, Tony. I miss my birds, Phoenix and Sammy. I miss self-esteem. I miss not being alone. […]

Yes, it’s been a while since I wrote anything here. I have been very depressed, and I hate writing depressing things. No one wants to read them. However, I thought […]
