These tips are all super-practical!

Day 29

Monday, February 6th, 2017

Hello old friend.

Day 19

Friday, January 27th, 2017

Alas, the tree is gone, chopped up and put in the very compost bin that once stood as its impromptu tree stand. We thank you for your service, and look forward to another slow death in 2018.

Signing off!

Day 15

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Now shit’s getting real. Yes, that is a tree jammed into a compost bin, passed over for a third time by the disposal company.

(And yes, this is a different tree further up the street. Tree #2 vanished in the night. This one’s the last holdout.)

Day 12

How will it end?

Day 8

Monday, January 16th, 2017

Now it gets tense. The tree has officially been passed over for two consecutive garbage day pickups, and now the owner has to make a decision: Hope the garbage company takes it, wait for a good Samaritan to do the job, or actually deal with it. Meanwhile, it’s starting to turn fairly brown. We’ll be watching!

Day 6

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

A whole row of trees (including the one I’d had my eye on) abruptly vanished this afternoon. Good news: A tree around the corner is still lingering, and will become our new specimen.

Scraggly on the base but largely intact — and more importantly, taking up a parking space.

Day 3

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

The trashcans are gone, but the tree remains. A little worse for wear due to the heavy rain and wind, but still hanging in there.

‘Tis the Season

Monday, January 9th, 2017

Neighbors missed the memo that last week was Christmas tree pickup, and the trash company makes zero exceptions.

The battle of wills starts today.

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!

I feel like I’ve met a few writers in my time that have pulled the same stunt…

Everything you ever wanted to know about RC Cola (and why it never became popular).

Still my favorite soda… though I don’t even drink Coke any more…

Dad Joke Doesn’t Work Out

Monday, February 1st, 2016

Me: Hey kids, look, a flock of cows!

Zoe (13): Brown cows!

Me: Uh, yeah, a flock of cows!

Zoe: Yeah, brown cows!

Beckett (9): It’s not flock.

Me: Yeah, flock of cows!

Beckett: Flock is for birds.

Me (frustrated): Yeah, flock of cows!

Beckett (rolls eyes): Never mind.

Since upgrading my brand new Lenovo Yoga 3 to Windows 10…

  • webcam doesn’t work
  • iTunes won’t even load
  • keyboard randomly doubles up on characters about 1 of 100 times you press a key… but about 1 out of 5 times you press the letter C
  • and there’s no help for any of this online

Story of my life.

I dunno, she looks like a gluten eater to me. How do they keep people from lying on their profiles just to try to get with eligible, gluten-free singles???

April Fool

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Is it just me or are the April Fools’ Day pranks of today getting entirely tiresome? I think it’s because the internet makes it too easy to pull them off. How about painting the Golden Gate Bridge blue or releasing a herd of cows inside City Hall? Now that’s a prank, people.

Case in point. (I can’t tell if Eater even got the joke…)

Following the Rules

The kids aren’t supposed to put “empty” food packages back in the cupboards, so (look closely)…
