Breakfast And The Sunday Paper

It’s been a long while since I’ve even picked up a newspaper, let alone read one while eating breakfast. I ran out and did some errands this morning, and got some breakfast stuff together. I stopped off at a nearby store, expressly to pick up a paper. Partly to have something to read, but party because I don’t think I…

One Minute Is Curiosity, Ten Minutes Is A Warning Sign

One of my friends (who shall remain nameless unless he says otherwise) likes to watch The Gilmore Girls. He refers to it as his "guilty pleasure." As you know, I tend to have this habit of working on the computer, then getting up and walking to the television, flip channels while standing in front of the television (because sitting down…

Odd Hours

So it’s now 5:38 AM. What started as a "Gee, I’d like something to drink" has turned into an hour-long, log onto the Internet and surf fest. Jebus, what’s wrong with me?

Blue Line: Denied

So it’s a slow day in the office. Jill is off to New York by noon, and Ben has been on vacation all week. Justin, since he had to work on his actual birthday, took the day off. All quiet on the Interactive front. Around 4:30 PM, I get a phone call from Katie, who’s asking to see what’s going…

One of our recently acquired Austin stations goes live this morning and, though we just have a placeholder site for them… I wanted to make sure everything was running well. I kept pushing to get all the information at the start of the week, and wanted to get the domain name rolling… but…

Busy busy

We got hit with that blaster virus at work, and I spent most of today helping Joel (our IT guy) run virus scans, and install patches. Ugh! Almost the entire day was spent moving from workstation to workstation, methodically testing and recording and approving each one. I finally got done around 4 PM, and was able to get started on…

*crink*

Alright, so it’s 4:50 AM. I just woke up with this horrific crink in my neck. Keep in mind now, I had something like this yesterday morning – an uncomfortable pinching in the neck that prevented a full range of motion. If I wanted to look to the left or right, I’d have to turn my whole body around as…

Total Luck

Last night, I was going through a bunch of old letters. On a whim, I googled an old friend of mine, Kim, and stumbled across a site that I thought might be hers. I sent off an e-mail and, as luck would have it, we discovered we knew one another and started exchanging e-mails. Oddly, Kim and I first started…
