Steve Martin, Fletch, Tablets, and Work

The host service that held my old site finally expired. Unfortunately I had just renewed my domain so it still exists. So until it expires I have set up my old domain to forward here.

Number 2 with Privacy

There is a guy on my floor in a wheelchair. He didn’t always work on this floor. When he arrived on the floor (a few months ago) my already unfufilling job became even more unenjoyable because now I can’t overcome my guilt to use the handicap bathroom. I miss taking craps in a private bathroom.

Wedded Bliss-krieg

At work I recently got emailed a wedding invitation. I don’t know this person. I believe she works on my floor, but I could be wrong as I have never heard her mentioned. Now the wedding is in India, so maybe she felt that anyone willing to go that distance must feel close enough to […]
