Made Ya "Blinq"

Wednesday, November 30th, 2005

A laurel and hearty handshake goes out to Mr. Daniel Rubin of The Philadelphia Inquirer, who mentioned yours truly in his post here. It’s not much, but any publicity is good publicity. Thank you, Dan!

The Pony Express (Answer Key)

Wednesday, November 30th, 2005

Thanks to everyone who participated in this edition of Reader Mail. It warms the heart to see so many people participate in this dumb post that usually wouldn’t take the time to vote. This is pretty long, primarily because of the high volume of questions. So, I apologize if I bore ya. The answers are [...]

The Pony Express

Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

Now, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Today you get the chance to see your reader mail answered. (It’s kinda like my Ask Dr. Earpy segment, but I couldn’t settle on a topic.) Therefore, no topic is off limits, so fire away. Post your questions in the comments section, and I will have your answers on [...]

Stupid Questions

Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

Why do some businesses claim catchy phone numbers that are a few digits too long? “Call 1-800-FREE ENEMA!” Wouldn’t the call connect after the last “E?“ Who decided it would be a good idea to have David Lee Roth replace Howard Stern? What, was Toni Basil unavailable? Does anyone else think that Lowe’s is really [...]

All He Does Is Win

“Ya know he’s like butter, ’cause he’s on a roll!” – Stuart Scott, ESPN I won GOP and the City’s Weekend Caption Contest! You can’t stop me, you can only hope to contain me. Tee hee hee!

“I’m prepared to scour the Earth for that motherf**ker. If Butch goes to Indochina, I want a ni**er waiting in a bowl of rice ready to pop a cap in his ass.” – Marsellus Wallace, Pulp Fiction Sometimes, blog posts just write themselves. Especially when you deal with idiots and toads all day. Take last [...]

The Weakest Link

Monday, November 28th, 2005

Well, I finally took some good advice – by skipping last night’s hockey game. The mind was willing, but the ribs were spongy and weak. At least I wouldn’t miss much, since our team has been playing so poorly, right? Wrong. The X-Men beat the Ice Bandits, 3-1, without yours truly. (This is why I [...]

An SYLG Companion

Sunday, November 27th, 2005

When I was writing my previous blog, many of my readers told me that sometimes they didn’t understand what the hell I was talking about. What’s worse is that when I wrote about politics, they tuned out entirely. This is the reason I rarely pontificate about the toads in Washington anymore. I don’t want anyone [...]

Gunga Din! Bring Water!

Saturday, November 26th, 2005

I just knew this would happen. The past few nights in Philly have been bone-rattling cold. As such, water mains around the metropolitan area have snapped quicker than Joe Theisman’s leg. So, it was no surprise when the main two houses down from mine broke yesterday – for the second time in as many years! [...]

Time To Help Out One Of Our Own

Friday, November 25th, 2005

Dave at Garfield Ridge sent most of his sidebar an e-mail yesterday concerning Jennifer at Demure Thoughts: Many of you are familiar with the blog Demure Thoughts, run by our friend Jennifer. Jen’s 5-year-old daughter has been in and out of the hospital the past two weeks with a kidney infection, pancreatitis, and now, surgery [...]
