Hi Unknown Man! How Are You Today?

Unknown Man

Email marketing… you’re doing it wrong. I noticed this one that had gone into my spam filter. Subject: Hi unknown man! How are you today? From: Regina Hi! How about your day? My name is Regina. I’m 28 years old. I am a single woman. I have no children. I have a college degree. I want to find someone with whom we will understand each other and share opinions. I want to meet a faithful, … Continue reading

In my last post A Message To My Concerned Colleagues, I talked about when folks email a distribution list.

A Message To My Concerned Colleagues

Hair Care Products

We all know them. Those emails that go out to an entire distribution list. 9 times out of 10 it’s not directed to you so you read the first sentence or two and then just delete it and move on. I got one the other day though that I read top to bottom and simply had to share. This was sent to all the employees that work on my floor by one of my friends … Continue reading

Overheard at Starbucks – Apple is Awesome

Starbucks Logo

Just about every weekend, I head to Starbucks at least once (sometimes twice) to do some work.  I love the kids and Wife, but if I actually need to get some stuff done it’s pretty difficult.  Anyhow… I was sitting in Starbucks the other day and while I normally just do my own thing with my headphones in on this day I couldn’t help but overhear the conversation going on at the table next to … Continue reading

My 7 Degree FML Moment

A Cold Morning

Sometimes it just doesn’t pay to be early for work.  However it NEVER pays to be stupid (trust me… I know).  Before I get started I wanted to explain the FML reference in the title of the post for those that aren’t familiar with it.  It comes from an OUTSTANDING website FMyLife – http://www.fmylife.com/ If you’ve never seen it and are looking for a laugh I highly recommend checking it out. So on to my … Continue reading

Come On Folks… Make Some Coffee

Coffee Cup

Folks… when you work in an office environment and you drink coffee, have some decency and make a pot if you take last cup.  It won’t kill you.  This simple act of brewing a pot of coffee will certainly NOT kill you, and will make other coworkers (who are looking for coffee) want to kill you less. Oh, and don’t think that just cause you don’t take the last 4 drops of you’re off the … Continue reading

Getting The Most Out Of An Unconventional Weekend

G & C Munching On Some Ice Cream

It’s Monday morning and damn if we didn’t just have a great weekend – though a little on the weird side.  At this point I’m a little sunburned and a little chafed (damn you protective webbing on the swimsuit… damn you to hell!!!) but man was it fun. Friday: After work and dinner on Friday night, we needed to take Mom’s truck to the Nissan dealership so they could work on it Saturday morning.  After … Continue reading

A Trip Of Flicks

G.I. Joe The Movie (1987)

I recently went on a quick trip to Vegas for work – in on Wednesday out on the “red-eye” on Friday evening.  The show was great and I managed to get in a little bit of time at the tables which was nice as well.  In preparation for my trip, I loaded up the iPod with quite a few flicks to make sure that I’d have plenty to keep me busy on the trip and … Continue reading

Chicken Fingers & Pasta To The Rescue

The Kid Leash

It’s been a while since I’ve said a whole lot about the boys so I figured today was as good a day as any.  A couple of weeks back we took our yearly trip to Naples, Florida.  The wife went down about 10 days before I did and then I went down, spent a few days and then we all came back together.  Normally we have GREAT weather but this year it was unseasonably cold … Continue reading

The Jean Tag – Over Or Under?

Jean Tags

Luckily I work in an office environment where jeans are acceptable work attire.  That said I wear them most days (when I don’t have a client meeting) and I had a thought cross my mind this morning – over or under? Most of my jeans have these tags along the belt line.  Many brands give you the option of putting your belt under the tag so you can still see it.  I’ve always been one … Continue reading
