Zombies are boring

I don't care for Zombies. There I said it. I feel better now. My life can now continue as planned. Today, in history, the 7th billionth person will be born. This little kiddo will most likely be born in India, although I suspect the real 7th billionth kiddo will actually born in an Occupy_(CITY) tent camp. Nah. Just kidding. The kid probably will be born in India. It's a shame that we can't track and figure out who it is because that kid would be financially set for life. Think of all of those New Year's Babies and what they get? Now times that by 7 billion (yes, that's how my mind works). Meanwhile,...

Ah! Fall!

Here's what I need in life right now: the worlds biggest umbrella, tent, tarp, and/or force field.If someone could create one that will cover my yard for the next few weeks, that would be great. Then the leaves from my trees can fall and kindly ricochet off such a wondrous creation and land in my neighbors' yards. I'm super nice like that. It's the least I can do for my neighbors. This way they can enjoy all the beautiful colors that my trees piss down each and every year. Ah. Beauty. (**insert evil laugh** and I won't have to rake, mow, mulch, and compost it all!)

Healthy Sulfites?

I'm addicted to the following things: Music, movies, brightly colored ugly things, red wine, mocha, garlic, and lemon juice. I'm sure there are more things I'm addicted to, but for now this is the list. And then I discovered that my lemon juice has sulfites in it. I'll be the first to admit that perhaps I don't read ALL the labels I should. For instance, I conveniently ignore the chocolate syrup label. When an item says it's real lemon juice, I just assume it is. That's right, I am another fool who blindly gives in to great marketing in the grocery store. Finding out sulfites are in my lemon...

October rocks!

Why does October rock? Because I was born in this month. I'm pretty sure if you find anyone out there born in the month of October (especially those who are libras) they too will share the same sentiment. So for my birthday this year my wife bought herself a new mac. I'm not complaining. I'm just putting it out there that on my birthday she got a new mac. So what did I get? 3 cakes. Yep - 3 of them. :) Of course I didn't eat them all. In fact, I didn't even get to try them all. I had a nice chunk of the tiramisu and a piece of the chocolate fudge. I did not have the room for the large...

Stalking Email

I'm stalking my email. I'm sure you know the feeling. I equate it to the days when people obsessed over their phones waiting for a call to come in. I keep checking my email, reloading it, reloading again (in case there was a glitch), and then checking my spam folder.  I never realized how great my spam folder was until now. It truly is great. When no new message arrives, I log out and log back in. Just in case that helps. While I go through those motions of logging out/in, I check my iPhone to make sure the much anticipated email hasn't come in. So why am I stalking email? You might assume...
