Last month a sticky air mass slimed the east coast and dumped a gooey mess on my head that looked like a toasted marshmallow. With my mind mired in goop, I became paralyzed from a crippling condition known as Constibraintion. When the creative cog gets stuck in a muddy rut of words because of too much… Continue reading

The Week That Hit The Fan
The AC in the ICU will be DOA soon. It’s 27 in human years or 150 in air conditioner years. Freon’s dripping through holes in a tube causing a mid summer system freeze, like a PC’s CPU though desktops blow hot air mostly. The AC blows both hot and cold. It’s cantankerous and groans and… Continue reading
The Hail Mary Hissy Fit
Sometimes you’ve got to vent, then pray it saves your head. Let it go! Let it rip! Let it ride on black while you’re blue. If it only stopped at red. Instead, my unhinged roulette spins off course into a storm, Down a ravine I didn’t see. No time for a Hail Mary… Continue reading
Microsoft, what were you thinking?
Bad Computer! Never uninstall SoundMax from your computer. Yep, I did that and now my computer is mute and possibly even deaf. What? My computer can’t speak. Never could actually. That was my shrill voice echoing off the screen. I just wanted to tidy up the desktop a bit – throw out the trash, get rid… Continue reading
Ninny Poop Head!
Yesterday, at five o’clock, my brain melted after a two-hour phone conversation with a QuickBooks ProAdvisor. Gurgle! Sploosh! She hijacked my desktop, remotely, and then commandeered my mouse. Several windows opened and closed. The cursor sped across the screen, telekinetically, and then screeched to a stop at the taskbar. “Just press this!” the ProAdvisor ordered…. Continue reading
Wireless Connection Lost! Patience Not Found!
Recently, after jettisoning from my desktop into cyberspace, Firefox bypassed Google, rerouting me to Internet purgatory, and the message, “Server not found!” I responded with, “Goddamn it! You lost it again!” To which Firefox said, referring to itself in third person, “Firefox can’t find the server at www.google.com.” How could you without Google Maps? Ignoring… Continue reading
Slut Talk Radio – A Rush to Judgment
Do some men choose a career in radio to overcompensate for their tiny heads? I can’t think of any other reason for Rush Limbaugh to verbally abuse Sandra Fluke on the radio, his voice wafting like pig farts across the airwaves. Whether you like it or not, Limbaugh is a public figure and a role… Continue reading
Congress Incinerates the American Dream
In light of last night’s report on Congressional insider trading, which aired on Sixty Minutes, I thought it was appropriate to repost this rant from April 2011. Several years ago, the universe shifted and knocked most of us off our feet, while others still reap in the rewards. The ground is still not stable…. Continue reading
Big Biz Cuts Jobs and Runs Overseas to Invest Over There
Image by SS&SS via Flickr Now that Big Biz has helped stall the economy because they’re not adding new workers, and in fact, laying workers off, they’re cutting and running overseas to invest in growth over there. Warning: Do not ingest any food byproducts before reading this. Today from the Los Angeles Times: Newell Rubbermaid… Continue reading
Rapping the Rapture
Image via Wikipedia When I stepped outside to get some air,I got the fire and brimstone in my hair The sky was dark as midnight, as dirty as coalThen thousands of Locusts swarmed up my nose My sinuses throbbed, thought they might explodeI couldn’t find a tissue and that really blows I’m enraptured with the… Continue reading
