Sitting Where Their Butt Sat

Moving is leaving a lot of new experiences for Andy to wonder about, and with a toilet seat swap necessary for the Mighty Ferguson in the new pad, he wonders about toilet seats and moving.

Safer Driving and You

Andy was guilty of distracted driving, and not because he was eating in the car, talking on his phone, or trying to look up “Cool restaurants” on his phone. Nope, he was mesmerized by the “hand-talker” behind him, and wonders about your driving habits.

Holy Crap, I Made an iPhone App!

I so wanted my first post announcing my first iPhone app to be filled with gloriousness, with “Hey, go out and get it!”, with “Let me know what you think!”, with “Sure, I know it’s $.99 and you want it…

I Became a Person Who Came to Downtown Chicago to…

The people would be there, in the freezing cold, in a line that sometimes would stretch down the street and around the corner, and you would think it was either the day after Thanksgiving and they were waiting for the season’s hottest gift, or that some store was giving away a hundred dollars just for standing in line.  With my friends I would mock these people, laugh at them as they were bundled in their parkas, shivering, yet with shear anticipation on their faces, and in an orderly fashion they would file, one by one, into the little storefront that housed a treasure people far and wide would stand for hours, or at least a bunch of minutes, to secure.

I Think I’m Done with Playboy

My problem now is what to replace the magazine with.  See, I already subscribe to Rolling Stone, Maxim, and somehow I get this Small Business Magazine, and they all pretty much keep me in tune with things in the entertainment world and hihg finance, although I do like a decent interview, and that’s what Playboy used to really give me.  While listening to the radio I was thinking GQ might be a nice replacement because I heard there was a great article with Clint Eastwood recently, but really, me and GQ?

Black Friday is Coming, Do You Know Where Your Pumpkin Pie Is?

Yup, we can expect that on Thanksgiving night there will be the proverbial news story showing the imbecile who is first-in-line to get that flat screen TV that will eventually be on sale for a better price if they could just hold out until right before the Super Bowl, and by the time the Friday morning news hits, the lead story will then be about the people who caused a stampede and killed someone to get the same TV.

FitBit, Count Chocula, or Maybe Both.

So I’m not sure if I’m going to be trying the FitBit right now, though, knowing me, it will be on my “to be purchased” list, especially if they come out with an iPhone app so I know if I can eat my ice cream, but I might have to pull out the $10 Target gift card that I have, buy some Chocula, and relive that chocolaty goodness, with spooky-fun marshmallows, and BHT added to preserve freshness.

Hi Mom and Dad! It’s 2009!

By: The Dude on the Right Hi Mom and Dad! Just wanted to wish the both of you a Happy 2009, although I’m not really sure if you actually celebrate New Year’s Day anymore.  When I woke up this morning…
