On the topic of names

December 26, 2008

So, I was reading LeMar’s blog- gmyh.blogspot.com and his most recent post is about first names. So on that topic….

I have to give Carly credit for this one, and some of you readers out there may have heard this story… Apparently Carly, (or Carly’s friend) I think has a little girl in her classroom named L-ea. Ok, doesn’t look so bad, but how do you pronounce it? I’ll give you a sec…

You said Leah, or Lee, right? WRONG. Pronounce the hyphen, what do you get? Phonetically: le dashe (long a) a. Seriously. Thanks Carly, it’s still hysterical. So, for all you new parents out there who can’t come up with a name, just consult your keyboard!

Club Trillion

December 10, 2008

If you ever get tired of reading the daily wit on this webolog, take a spin on this gem:

Life as a walk-on on the basketball team has never been more glamorous. Mark is not only hilarious, he also was a part of what will go down as the greatest AAU team in history (Greg Oden, Mike Conley, Daquan Cook, Josh McRoberts, Eric Gordon, and oh yeah, Mark Titus). Seriously, how did that team ever lose a game?

Local pizza

October 19, 2008

Got to love some creative marketing. Although I’m fairly sure they didn’t get permission for this one. If you are in grandview, give Cowtown pizza a try.

No power

September 15, 2008

What do you do when your place of employment has no power but just happens to sell all manner of portable lighting?

You strap on a light and sweat while you pretend that you’re supposed to be at work getting nothing done since you have no lights, phones, A/C, or internet. Not that I’m bitter about wasting half a day there or anything.

Killing time

September 15, 2008

I got to work this morning and we had no power. So I get to sit in my car for an hour, call and hear we still have no power and repeat.

I figured this was a good time to download WordPress for my phone and actually post for once.

Here is a typical morning drive to work, waiting for the train to pass. Lovely scenery, eh?

When girls throw a tailgate

September 13, 2008

So we had a tailgate at work this week to kick off the fall season. Pink has their new collegiate line at select schools so they were the sponsor. When girls throw a tailgate it consists of: giant pink polka dot dogs, a DJ spinning dance music, buckeye fondue, non-alcoholic beer, and tons of pink lollipops. Seriouly! Oh, and of course party favors.

I Do

June 9, 2008

I’ll just start by saying: it’s not who you think.

A little back story: last Saturday I went to Dayton because an old defunct print shop was trying to clear everything out before they sold the building. Among the treasures I rescued was this filing cabinet packed full of all kinds of good stuff.

For the princely sum of $5, I (and the world) get to enjoy everything that was in it. Like wedding invitations from innocent times in the past like this:

Look at that mustache. First class all the way. Folks, it only gets better. Candace and Michael Lee (oh, I’m sure he went by both names) look like a nice swingin’ couple. But I’m afraid they don’t hold a candle to the party that was hosted by Debbie and Howard:

Front of their wedding invitation:

And the actual invite:

I…no, I can’t even begin. It’s too easy. Biker wedding, indeed. I wish I could’ve made this up. I wonder how that marriage is doing these days.

I’ll be posting some more of these gems. There’s 27 more drawers of stuff like this to show you.

Having your Cake

April 14, 2008

Hey Dolly, what happened to the ‘Cake’? I could’ve sworn that the last time I had one of these, roughly 8th grade, this was a three-word treat.

Father knows best

February 25, 2008

Some of the best advice I’ve ever received from my dad:

When something doesn’t work, check to make sure it has gas.

Solves all kinds of problems.
