Lost and Found: 1 Grecian ‘Stache

Friday, January 9th, 2009

All of you will surely recognize the man on the left.  His biblical image comes at you in all of its hair and puffy-shirtness like a thunder clap.  Yanni stands as the hairiest, women-loving man I know [of]…though Hugh Jackman must be at the top of this game too!  And on his right is the [...]

The Guerrilla Tipster

Friday, October 26th, 2007

The Guerrilla Tipster invokes his mighty right, passed down by the hands of the gods, to assert wisdom upon the unwitting.
Today I find the signature of the Guerrilla Tipster upon the windshield of a car in the Barnes and Noble parking lot of Duluth:
LEARN HOW TO PARK DUMB SHIT!!
The words are poignant. I only [...]

Combining Cultures

Sunday, August 5th, 2007

This past week, Fiserv announced that it is acquiring CheckFree Corporation, the company I have worked for over the last few years.

I Eat Yellow Foods

Thursday, January 27th, 2005

It turns out that I really enjoy eating in mom & pop establishments. I sort of always knew that, but didn’t think about it much. They’re often times more expensive than bigger chains, but for what they lack in economy, they gain in service and dining pleasure. You also get a warm, [...]

The Honda Experience (Update)

Wednesday, July 7th, 2004

Here’s the latest news in the Honda Experience. It turns out there was some unscrupulous actions occurring after all. My vehicle purchase price was changed without notification. Of course, I was a fool for signing the contract without calculating the simple interest loan values myself and backwards calculating tax, tag, title, doc [...]
