jimmyjimmyjimmy: I cannot stand the phrase “it is what it is” and I am comforted in knowing that I’m not the only one. Now I need everyone to agree with me that participating in the wave at sporting events is lame. The word “green” as an environmental term gets used far too much, especially as a verb. Although their popularity has waned, I want to choke a puppy every time I hear a...

jimmyjimmyjimmy: As we always said as kids, “first is the worst, second is the best third is the one with the *treasure chest/hairy chest” *can be used interchangebly, depending on the circumstance. IrishMexi’s alma mater coming in third, I’ll let you decide which one to use there. “The most loyal, respectful and knowledgeable fans in all of college football…” Go ahead and...

Jacket Week, Day Five: Corduroy
Last week I wrote about a battle of one-upmanship I have engaged in with a coworker. As threatened, I came in this Monday wearing a coat and tie only to find out my wardrobe rival had given up after only two weeks. Undeterred, I christened this Jacket Week. After sporting an $8 Goodwill suit and various other thrift store finds, today I went frat-tastic with khakis and a blue blazer, complete with...

danieleric:frictionlesssuperfeet: So, here’s how it works: 1. Be insufferably annoying. 2. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc) 3. Put it on shuffle 4. Press Play 5. For every question, type the song that’s playing 6. When you go to a new question, press the ‘next’ button 7. Don’t lie I tried to do this, but when Ben Folds Five - Brick was my song for...
The Corner Café and the Crescent Moon Girl
There was a greasy spoon diner in my hometown that I used to go to with my dad when I would work in his cabinet shop in the summers or over Christmas break. We would enter through the back door and walk through the kitchen, placing our order with the cook and proprietor, Hair. For a time, I thought it was short for Harold, but I’m fairly certain that isn’t his name (*edit: I just remembered his...

Plan to overhaul the way MLB works. In a good way. →
(via katyunger) Of course a Jays fan would be a proponent of a divisional re-alignment. I’m all for getting rid of the unbalanced schedule, but blowing apart the AL and NL to do so is ridiculous. And, as a Twins fan, the thought of MLB-mandated contraction makes me sick. Everything is cyclical; there is no need to try and “even out” the divisions. Things could be worse…...

The KC Air Show is this weekend. How do I know? Every five minutes a plane flies over our building and everyone stands up to try to catch a glimpse of it out the window.
evrt: Matt, didn’t you know, when I am sitting in front of my 24” Mac with my black rimmed glasses, it makes me better than you? :) *also, check out my nifty tags below* As I sit in my cold, gray, lifeless cubicle working on a spreadsheet to calculate the centroid of a semi-circular arch atop an angled post, I am painfully aware of of that fact.
