"My wife told me that if she catches me grabbing a beaver, it would cause my death. (Drumroll.) Seriously, this reminds me of what Chris Rock said when the pet tiger attacked its owner: "That tiger didn't go crazy. That tiger went…"

For My Friend Linda

Posted on December 8, 2011 at 8:00am 13 Comments

It was a cold, hard, steady rain, the kind that makes you want to go back indoors and sit by the fireplace with a brandy snifter, except I don’t have a fireplace, I don’t like brandy and I don’t know what a snifter is.

 

Unfortunately, I couldn’t go back inside – I had to be on the West Side of Manhattan for a meeting – so I was boarding the shuttle from Grand Central to Times Square at rush hour.  The car was so crowded that I knew the woman on my left had garlic in her lunch…

I'll Never Set Foot in a Starbucks Again

Posted on October 17, 2011 at 9:00am 9 Comments

 

Last week, I declared today Fuck Wall Street Day in my household.  However, I’ve decided to “downsize” my anger and aim at just one corporation that has earned my wrath and lost my business: Starbucks.   

 

The reason: they fired my son-in-law.

 

Now a lot of people get fired every…

A Tale of Two College Students

Posted on October 12, 2011 at 9:52am 2 Comments

Alexander Grant was a 19-year-old student at Boston College. Lauren Speirer was a 20-year-old college student at Indiana University.  Both of them grew up within 15 minutes of where I live.

 

Unfortunately, that’s not the only thing they have in common.

 

On Saturday, March 5 of this year, Alexander Grant was spending part of his spring break visiting a friend at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY.  That night, after drinking beer and vodka at his friend’s…

And how is you this fine Sunday?

With Jason nuking Paris (still in France), Matt blasting his crotch - both with the Big Red Buttons - and Gort nearly destroying the world of Zoomers as we know it, this coming week can only be more scary for those nice Canadians who blog here.

 

Oh yes, and The Cat Group don't take prisoners either....

Hey Cranky Cuss: Örebro is not far at all from Uppsala. It's actually somewhere around 2 hours by car. Sweden is beautiful, I cannot say anything else but if you're gonna visit you should do so in the summer time.....:-):-)

Ahhhhhh, c'mon. I only took it because Cranky Cuss was taken. And yes, I married Scott (mastermind behind the moniker) for his brains.

Thanks Cuss and welcome to Zoomers. This was such a great post. I did the same thing, but I thumbed around the country and met people of every variety and economic circumstance. It made me proud to live in this country, when I did the same thing in Europe and the people were not half as nice, at least to me, an American. (if you ever need a date to see the VanMan again, I'm with ya' my man)
