Were they really that big?

30 Jun

I kind of love the concept that led to this article: Give a modern 13 year-old a Sony Walkman (first released 30 years ago) in exchange for his ipod for a week, and have him document his impressions. Not surprisingly, he wasn’t necessarily impressed. And rightfully so – I remember the actual Sony hardware, with […]


drunk and naked is no way to go through life, Mr. Mayor…

quoth the drunk naked guy: “No officer, I’m not the drunk naked guy you’re looking for. There must be some other drunk naked guy wandering around here; I’m merely sitting here minding my own business being drunk and naked. Do you know who I am? Sorry, I don’t have any place handy to keep my […]

16 Jun

the last post covered today’s serious issues. This one’s complete irrational whining. It’s really difficult to pry oneself out of bed when one is the only one in the house who is under any obligation to get up early. Is it wrong to resent my children for having summer vacation?
