Howlings of a Jackal

Had drinks with an old friend, Rachelle, yesterday. We met at Barca on Capitol Hill for a martini and a talk about her writing and “epic dreams”. Later we moved to Quinn’s and feasted on frog’s legs and salad. My Bloody Mary was not a good idea in combination with the spiciness of the toad’s hindquarters, but trying new things isn’t always a blast.… read more “Howlings of a Jackal”

Gorilla Marketing

Today, I’m going to talk about one of my earliest childhood lessons in the advertising field: gorilla marketing.‚  Literally, gorilla marketing… you thought I misspelled guerrilla marketing didn’t you?

Ivan the Gorilla lived for 27 years in the now shut down B & I Shopping Mall in Tacoma, WA.‚  I remember visiting the mall and watching Ivan the Gorilla in his enclosure.‚  The B & I Shopping Mall had brought Ivan in and kept him for 27 years in a concrete enclosure inside their retail area where people could watch him as they purchased goods.… read more “Gorilla Marketing”

Funny Home Videos: Accidents, Fights & More Funny Clips

Funny home videos is one entertaining topic that I have not yet featured on my website.‚  I have found tons of hilariously funny home videos, including funny videos of accidents, the funniest fight clip you’ve seen yet and many others.‚  My criteria in selecting funny home videos was twofold: First and foremost I wanted to find the funniest home videos ever made and second, I wanted to make sure that these videos would not be taken down off Youtube for having illegal content.‚  After much funny home video watching and judging, I have narrowed the selection down to teh very funniest home videos that I have ever seen.… read more “Funny Home Videos: Accidents, Fights & More Funny Clips”

Socialism in America- Definition of Socialism and Socialists in Schools

At a recent dinner I had an interesting conversation with an American schoolteacher about economics and politics and eventually discovered that she was a socialist. Since I wanted everyone to enjoy the dinner, I didn’t ask her more questions to find out the depth of her socialism knowledge or if she understood the effects socialist principles have on a nation.… read more “Socialism in America- Definition of Socialism and Socialists in Schools”

  • Still being employed in the rapidly sinking American economy.
  • Having awesome friends and great brothers.
  • Being in very good health (crosses fingers).

Civic Knowledge Test

I found an interesting civic knowledge test.‚  http://www.americancivicliteracy.org/resources/quiz.aspx Apparently, the average public servant scores lower than the average citizen.

I scored an 81% (27 out of 33).

I thought a few of the questions were BS, especially question 33 & 15.‚  I won’t tell you what they are though before you take the test.

How did you score?

Tenderloin, Swiss Potato Casserole and Herb Roasted Carrots & Onions

I cooked up a huge tenderloin for our monday night dinner last night.‚  On the side I served swiss potato casserole (which rocked) and herb roasted carrots and onions.‚  Everyone in attendance loved it (Ian, Di, Ben, Plato, NIck).‚  Very good times, but now I have a ton of cleaning to do.‚  At least I have some leftover swiss cheese potato casserole!

Women Are Crazy

At least the ones I date are…‚  They seem normal when I start to date them and then by the end I am usually seriously considering calling the folks in white jackets to take them away.

It would be great to find a rational person to date… but I’m beginning to doubt the existence of such a person.‚  Instead, I am stuck locking my door at night for fear that the Crazies will find a way in to stab me in my sleep.… read more “Women Are Crazy”
