Get Out and Stay Out

Happy Ides of March. Today marks my 5 year anniversary with my current employer. Woo. Hoo. I’ve now been here 4 years longer than I thought I would be when I started this job. Actually, I transferred from Baltimore to Chicago about a year and a half ago, but it’s still 5 years with the […]

Senior citizens brawl after salad bar dispute. Ohio salad arrives with piece of thumb. Maybe McDonald’s food isn’t so dangerous in comparison…

No Amish Paradise

Amish TV show runs into trouble. As much as Courtney wants to see it, looks like ‘Amish in the City’ may not make it to primetime. [Weird Al Yankovic lyrics = 1] – thanks, Kell Bell…
