My girlfriend offered up a kindness and peace today, & while that’s not where this starts, let’s start there. Neither of us are even close to flush with cash, and we have mountains of debt. She’s scratching away at hers, bit by bit, working a job she can be proud to do while being far better than it. Read the rest of this entry »

Hey pals! Well, some folks are at it again on Amazon.com, treating a television show like it’s their God or something. For the life of me, I can’t get over how passionate people are over things that are produced in such an assembly-line manner as a sit-com, and I guess maybe I’ll never fully understand it. I mean, I love the show “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia,” but if someone gave it a shitty review on Amazon, I think I’d read it, disagree, and then move on to look for something that I’m going to buy. Isn’t that what most people do?

Anyway, this is, by and large, a repost of the previous post I made, but at the end of the article, I’ve included the comments for my review (and my responses to them). This stuff is, by and large, fun to me, but I have to admit that the thinly-veiled personal insults do creep under my skin. But hey: when a person is nothing more than a disembodied collection of words on a major website, it’s pretty easy to disregard the human’s feelings, isn’t it? Of course it is: I’m sadly as guilty of it as anyone.

And that’s where this repost of this thing ultimately takes me: I need to take a look at how I treat people, too. These people are using ad hominem attacks on me, probably so nonchalantly that they don’t even recognize they’re insulting a real person. And I do that in my day-to-day around the Internet, too.

I don’t like that I do that. When I insult a person, I want to be deliberate, sincere, and I want it to have some fucking passion! I’m not into just passing around insults like some sort of petty blogger cunt! I’m a severe, direct blogger cunt, damn it!

And that’s real, ’cause I’m Bee-BO!…shit. She’s gonna kill me for that one. Anyway, enjoy the whole thing if you haven’t, and please enjoy the comments these folks left me. I know I did! :)

This helps me believe in God a little bit more, because if this stupid show can go on for 6 seasons, there has to be a Hell.

My friends, apparently my one, singular voice of reason wasn’t enough to take down the tyrants in their Tower of Doom, which means that a full 6th season of the hit CBS program “The Big Bang Theory” has or will soon be released for public consumption. Read the rest of this entry »

FEDERAL CAPITAL TERRITORY

My name is Andrew Louis, the Senior Directing officer of one of the many branches Rooly Security Agency. I am writing you concerning a situation which has come to my notice and i would like a confirmation from you before i proceed with my actions.

A consignment box containing a very huge amount of Fund about $15Million USD was brought here to be kept in custody by one Delegate Anderson Curtis who was assigned to Africa to handle issues involving foreign Beneficiaries being ripped each time they try to make a claim on their inheritance .This was done some months ago which the Agent stressed that the consignment belongs to you.

I get the strangest feeling that this is a lie, but who can be sure nowadays, right? (Oh, reprinted under Fair Use blah blah blah...)

OK, so it’s not just McDonald’s, but they definitely brought about a billion straws to test in finding the breaker for that old camel’s back! If you don’t live in one of a handful of major cities, ranging from a metropolis like New York City to a corpse like Detroit, you might not be aware that thousands of fast-food employees went on strike this week.

“The Coca-Cola Co, said in a statement, ‘We are very gratified that Magistrate Judge Levy recommended denying class certification as to all monetary damages claims alleged by plaintiffs. We firmly believe the plaintiffs’ claims are without merit and will ultimately be rejected. Vitaminwater is a great tasting, hydrating beverage with essential vitamins and water–and labels clearly showing ingredients and calorie content.’”

Is it just me, or does that quote make you inexplicably angry? Read the rest of this entry »

For the record, this is not where today's events transpired. And before you think, "oh holy shit, it would be so cool to work there!," let me inform you that their elevators have been busted since the beginning of the Great Recession, and they've only been using offices from the 30th floor up since they sent half of the jobs to Mumbai in 2010.

OK, so here’s the deal with this entry: I had a company-wide “town hall” meeting today at my job, where the highest of the upper management stopped by our quaint little hamlet to talk to the serfs & plebeians about how the company’s doing. Honestly, there isn’t a whole lot to tell about these things, though my experience at this event was probably a bit more exciting than a great many others who suffered a similar fate of being stuck at this thing with no personal time available to skip out on today and go get shitfaced at the bar adjacent to the movie theater in which this event was held.

So when the few in the office who didn’t attend asked about how the meeting went, I had the option to either go over the meeting minutes -or- lie my ass off. I chose the latter. What’s going to follow here are both versions of the events that transpired. You choose the one you like best.
