YouTube’s comments section is not an appropriate venue for your world view. YouTube comments are worse than bumper stickers, in terms of intelligence and depth. Also, if your user name is “DonutNinja” or “No2NWO”, you should probably not bother at all. If it’s not clear to you why this is, then perhaps it’s time to […]
On Monday, after a long day of work and roughly a week’s worth of late nights, I came home and eased myself down on the floor with Blackbird. This was my way of hanging out with daughter while expending little to no energy. She seemed to like it, so I felt OK that I was […]
Jdimytai Damour, hero of American consumers everywhere, died 11/29/2008. He gave his life so New York City shoppers could obtain only the best deals for their family and themselves this Christmas at Wal-Mart.

Whoever thought that COBRA was a good name for health insurance was probably the same person who thought up the phrase Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act in order to make it work. Also, clearly not a child in the 80s.
Don’t get me started on those things. (This post is a bit of an homage to Jessica Hagy’s Indexed. If I’ve inadvertently duplicated an idea she’s already done, then it is only because she’s, like, way smarter than I am. You should visit her site. Start at the first post and work your way forward […]
I forgot my camera this morning, so in lieu of the cool shots of the passing scenery from the train that I had planned on taking, I give you me at 8:12 AM (conveniently noted in the corner), as taken by my laptop camera. I’d love to say that my concerned look is a sign […]
In spite of Current Config going blank, I am still here. Expect some holiday bloggery when I have a bit more free time. In the meantime, go visit Indexed, a great little web… comic… blog… infographic…. just go look, it is fantastic and Jessica Hagy deserves our attention and support.
