Gee Hubspot, How Could I Refuse?

Hi Unknown:

Day 19

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

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 8

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

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.

‘Tis the Season

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…

Royal Crown

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

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.

Windows

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.

April Fool

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…)

International Shipping

So UPS, let me get this straight.

Someone ships an express worldwide package — 58 pounds — to Ghana, Africa, using my UPS account number, but from an origin that’s about 2,000 miles away from where I live. The bill for the shipping is over $1,000. I almost never ship anything, let alone anything to Africa.

You don’t see anything just a little bit odd about that scenario?
