Fuzzy Wuzzy was a…towel?

And now for a bit of fluff. Sure, there are lots of interesting bits of news out there, but it’s my blog and I want to ramble. And, yes, I know Fuzzy was a bear. For reasons you will shortly read, today Fuzzy Wuzzy was a towel. Much of my home life (going all the… Read more »

The day after

Hey! It’s Christmas! That means tomorrow is nearly here! It’s my favorite day of the season – the day after! Since we’re Jewish, it’s understandable Christmas isn’t a “home” holiday. Indeed, though I’ll be picking up my Dad and Stepmom to head to my sister’s today for dinner, it’s more just a get together, since… Read more »

You snooze, you gain

Circumstances. Always circumstances. Sometimes they teach you a lesson and sometimes they work to your benefit. And sometimes both. Case in point, when my latest outing to Best Buy taught me that if you snooze, you gain. How did this educational lesson begin? Well, there was the ruminating and hemming and hawing over buying a… Read more »

Trouble counting to two

My admiration for Amazon grows daily. It’s not just the pricing, because they are not universally the cheapest (for instance, I’ve found a number of Halloween items significantly cheaper elsewhere), though most times they are at or below other retailers. It’s the consistency. Ever since they had a bad holiday season a couple of years… Read more »

Down to the wire

It’s been torrentially raining for the last two days, preventing me from doing any work on the Dead Thing Driveway…and I couldn’t be more pleased! “What?” you may be wondering. “Has he gone batty at last?” Not at all my friends and I’ll tell you why. (As a related aside, this looks like the 2nd… Read more »

Endlessly redundantly repeating ad infinitum

Okay, barring a brain-melting incident in the political spectrum, this blog begins its inevitable turn to the sole province of Halloween and all its associated circumstances. That means day-by-day updates on my preparations for my Dead Thing Driveway and progress towards my annual Halloween BBQ and development of this year’s Halloween goody bags. In other… Read more »

Observations in the cone of uncertainty

Some random observations over the last 24 hours on South Florida, people and Hurricane Irma… – On the way to the first week of bowling league last night, I witnessed the heading-home-from-work traffic turn into the I-need-to-get-gas backup at one of the highest priced gas stations locally. Panic and lack of preparedness know no savings…. Read more »


Welp, my first skeleton is close to fully caparisoned. I’m still debating whether to add “Pied Piper” shoes. Considering the lengths I have had to go through to piece together even a semblance of a “Pied Piper” outfit, I’m guessing that’s one that may take a bit of searching. My closest imagining is that I’ll… Read more »

Why so negative?

I’ve been going on about all my purchases online, particularly through my Amazon Prime membership (in fact, I have some Weber grill grates arriving later today). One of the more beneficial aspects of the internet and online shopping is that people weigh in with their opinions on the products and services they purchase. The vast… Read more »
