What Up Blood: Last Encounter (Hopefully!)

I decided not to write about other minor uneventful incidents which have occurred involving the gang culture. These events consisted of “ice grills” from gang members with facial tattoos and such trivial chance meetings; I don’t feel the need to waste anyone’s time with these tales. This last encounter will hopefully be my last post […]

Shake ‘Em Up, Shake ‘Em Earthquakes and California go together like Peyton Manning and future Super Bowl championships. I’m not the type to worry about things I can’t control, which is why earthquakes never enter my mind. Honestly, I completely forgot about the frequent sudden releases of energy in the Earth’s crust that create seismic […]

I Almost Forgot About The San Andreas Fault

While living on the east coast, anytime someone mentioned living in California one thought immediately came to mind; earthquakes. I just couldn’t grasp the idea of making a home in an area where you are at a higher risk of dying. To me, the only thing worse than living in California, was if I decided […]

Can Anything Go Right On a Sunday, a few months ago, I brought home my car. That was the day I discovered that the gas gauge was broken. (Thankfully, the gauge was in a temporary coma; it works perfectly now!) The following Monday was a holiday and I had a new “special” route to complete. […]

Meta World Lunacy

There aren’t many things in this world that shock me, but I was floored by what occurred at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday April 22nd. Ron Artest (I refuse to call him that nonsense that he created!) lost his freaking mind and assaulted Oklahoma City’s James Harden. Not only was the act […]

Getting To Know You, Los Angeles

I decided not to post on Monday and Tuesday because this was a busy weekend at work. I am still exhausted, but I will write this short piece. Previously, I shared my experiences in Los Angeles. I believed the people of the city to be friendlier and more welcoming than the citizens of Boston. For […]

Laptop Comedy

     This is my attempt to create an original stand-up comedy set. I have coined a new phrase; Laptop Comedy. (Laptop Comedy is a set that is written using a laptop and posted on a blog!)      Originally, planned on creating a full comedy set, but then I realized that I am not even considered […]

One Minor Step In The Right Direction Earlier this week, I mentioned the discovery of a great Chinese takeout establishment. We returned on Friday to sample some more of the good stuff, and boy was it good. When we finished ordering, the woman asked us for our autographs. Did we get discovered? NO! We each […]

Suspicious Behavior? If you don’t know, I am one hundred percent against shoplifting. (That is the highest number possible. Only an idiot would say they are higher than one hundred percent!) To read my thoughts on shoplifting, follow the link: Antitheft. My job requires me to travel to several different supermarkets on a daily basis. […]

Lakers Fans Hate The Celtics The other day, I drove to the gas station and pulled into one of the pumps. There was a problem with the machine so I had to walk to the window in order to pay the attendant. As soon as I approached the window the guy seemed repulsed. “You just […]
