The vast conspiracy to keep light sleepers awake

The vast conspiracy to keep light sleepers awake

I wake up in a relative’s guest room to the sound of the neighbor’s alarm clock going off in the apartment below. Too bad the neighbor doesn’t. He’s either dead or he’s not at home, in which case he’s going to wish he was dead when he gets home. After 20 minutes of listening to […]

HUMOR- Look for Me in Office Supplies

HUMOR- Look for Me in Office Supplies

Some people are Shoe Store People. Some people are Furniture Store People. Some people are Any and All Store People. They can happily browse their chosen retail outlet even if at that moment, they’re not in the market for the object of their obsession, or anything else for that matter. Their favorite store is like […]

HUMOR – Be Quiet and Eat Your Dandelions

HUMOR – Be Quiet and Eat Your Dandelions

When I complained to my friend about the yellow scourge taking over my yard, she told me to be quiet and eat my dandelions. She said dandelions are nutritious, delicious and free. I told her she could have as many as she wanted if she’d just come by and pick them. So far she hasn’t […]

HUMOR – Why they put Solitaire on computers

HUMOR – Why they put Solitaire on computers

My productivity dropped like a laptop into the lake when I got my fancy, new PC. That’s partly because, for non-geeks like me, the only thing worse than a dead computer is the learning curve on a new one. Besides that, my new computer has a wide screen, covered with time-wasting temptations, like the news, […]

HUMOR – Your cat would kill you if it was bigger

HUMOR – Your cat would kill you if it was bigger

I’ve had trouble sleeping ever since I heard a disturbing story on the Internet news site, Buzz60. The story sited research suggesting my cat would kill me if it was bigger. And the researchers made this claim without ever having met my cat. But it isn’t just my cat. It’s yours too, if you have […]

HUMOR – Be at the dock when you’re ship comes in

HUMOR – Be at the dock when you’re ship comes in

I know someday my ship is going to come in. I just hope I’m there to meet it. I’ve been worried about it ever since I read the story of Australian writer Helen Garner. She got a message in her junk email folder recently telling her she’d won a prestigious writing prize, but the sender needed […]

HUMOR – Suddenly I like lutefisk

HUMOR – Suddenly I like lutefisk

I’ve always said, it’s a shame lutefisk is only served during the holiday season. Oh wait. I never said that, and I never will. But if I did feel that way, I’d have good reason for it. It’s in my DNA. I recently took a DNA test and was shocked to discover that a full […]

A chance of madness in March

A chance of madness in March

I’m always been a day late and a dollar short—or in this case, two years late and a billion dollars short. You probably heard that in 2014, Warren Buffet offered a billion dollar March Madness prize to anyone who could successfully pick all 64 team brackets in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. You can’t win […]

HUMOR – Take my survey about surveys

HUMOR – Take my survey about surveys

This may come as a surprise to you, but a lot of people care about my opinion and some of them are even willing to pay for it, or at least give me a coupon for it. Lucky for them, I always have an opinion—plus I’m almost always right. That must be why, in the […]

HUMOR – On the way to ambidexterity

HUMOR – On the way to ambidexterity

I developed great admiration for left-handed people the morning I accidentally sprayed my bathroom walls with hair mousse. I was trying to apply mousse from a spray can using my left hand. How hard can it be? Well, it’s not hard at all—if you’re left handed. Or if you’re right handed like I am, and accuracy […]
