Employees at McDonald’s are always a miserable lot. Employee in McDonalds’s commercials look as though they are having the greatest day of their lives. This is because they aren’t actually working at McDonald’s.
Now these are some enterprising fellows. I think this may almost be worth quitting my day job to pursue.

Got a new backpack today. Osprey Atmos 50. Its awesome. And almost exactly like my other Osprey Atmos 50 only Large and red. I can already think of a million things I would like to avoid by using that pack.

erinmargrethe: I’ve been lazing on the beach with my girlfriends here in South Australia, flicking through tons of fashion and gossip magazines, reading all of that kind of bullshit diet/detox advice out loud to each other and laughing at it while we graze on fudge, lobster and champagne. We all have New Year’s resolutions to hit the gym more, but even our gym resolutions are mellow - walk to...
I miss my answering machine. It made it easier to avoid people I didn’t want to talk to. ‘Hey did you get my voice mail?’ ‘No man, you know my stupid machine ate the tape.’ ‘What do you mean your machine ate the tape? Cell phones don’t have tapes’ sigh ‘Yes I got your message but you’re an incredible bore and I can’t stand...

ianbrooks: 3barr: Please allow me an alternate viewpoint for a moment. I see a crappy movie that doesn’t need to be made and its only reason for existence is to line the pockets of investors. To these people I say ‘Good for you’. Now as far as little Miss Irwin’s involvement in the film, she is there only because of who her father was and the fact that he is now no longer with us. I find...

Dear wimps (a rant)
When I make social commentary on Twitter about something I find to be displeasing I don’t need you to try to win me over or make me feel guilty. For Example: Today I took my daughter to the movies and a preview came on for a Free Willy Movie with Bindi Irwin in the lead role. I tweeted that Free Willy remakes staring Bindi Irwin were a sign of the apocolypse. Later I received a direct...
These time of year is not typically the most joyful for me. Being a UPS employee this time of year is not about joy and goodwill. For me it’s typically about months of planning, listening to people complain about everything under the sun, fighting with fog and snow and finally missing Christmas Eve with my wife and children. I put the hammer down tonight and rushed my people to get done...

I Lurve eyes. Stomachs.I like stomachs. Or, you know … bums. I like hipbones. Or as I call them, handlebars. I’ll take the waist, between hip and rib. Hot sauce.
Channel surfing tonight I’ve seen, From Dusk Til Dawn, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill volumes 1 and 2 and Sukiyaki Western Django. When I realize a theme in movies I wonder if someone died. Sometimes the thought of that person dying makes me sad. Most of the time I’m relieved.

I have to say one of my favorite things about Alton Brown is that he has taught things like this are ridiculous. But I have to admit I get the momentary “How freakin’ cool is that! I want it I want it I want it.” Then sanity kicks in.

Dear Mr. Obama, Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad the bailouts to the banks ended up being $200 billion cheaper but don’t insult me by saying the money we saved there is going to possibly go to reducing the deficit.
