will tune in to the USA network at 8:00 to watch the episode of “House” that led him to a epiphany of sorts one year ago.

covered his entire body in Crest White Strips, and now he looks like a skinny Casper the Ghost.
muses that one person’s negative consequences are another’s silver lining.

is seeing ads for over-40 social networks and hair extensions. Maybe cyanide tablets will be next.

is screaming “HE IS RISEN!!” at random small children outside just for the sheer joy of seeing them freak out and soil themselves.

Is doing 107 on the Spaulding Turnpike while texting. Before berating him for this, realize that he is also smashing spent vodka bottles against school buses.
noticed that none of 1099-MISC forms had anything listed under item 13: “Excess golden parachute payments.” This is because his golden parachute payments were quite modest in 2008.
cut himself shaving. Ordinarily this wouldn’t be a big deal, but he was using a skill saw and not on his face.

thinks that GMail’s report of “Oops! We’re sorry!” when it goes down is as annoying as the same apology from a loud, fat, drunk chuck in a tiny dress who spontaneously shits herself on a crowded city bus. Don’t be so cavalier, some of have work to do!
performed a series of Valsalva maneuvers this morning in order to better shave the area above his manubrium.
expects he’ll be truly hating life by roughly 2:14 p.m. on Monday, but that by the next morning he’ll have returned to his baseline of mellow pessimism and contempt.

is out the door, headed for the Hynes. Should be about an hour to get to the city, another three to find parking.

is tired of listening to an ice-cream truck play “Do Your Ears Hang Low.”

keeps pressing the power button on his dead craptop, figuring that because this hasn’t worked the last 200 tries, the next time’s bound to be a charm.

just inappropriately fed the dog a Mentos and is watching the Celtics conclude a hell of a series.
says fuck iTunes and the fucktards behind it. Jesus Christ, how hard can it be to order a $0.99 song. Fuck their overpriced phones as well. And their CEO. And their progeny.

wishes he could choose who does well using his running advice based on merit.
has successfully used recombinant techniques to synthesize H7N5, soon to be known as the dreaded “Platypus-Gecko Sniffles Virus.”

is building DNA, identifying nutrients, energizing cells, and letting natural selection perform its inexorable tricks.
hopes to have the new male contraceptive injection administered right through his temple, just to see what happens.
is dismayed that Mrs. Roboto never got her share of the credit. Domo arigato, bitch.

is happy that the Concord Monitor is eliminating some of the more clusterfuck-engendering elements of its online comment fields.
and his co-bloggers have moved from to a WordPress cyberpit:
finally submitted a sample chapter to his editor at the Competitor Group. It wasn’t the most refined 4,000 words ever generated, but should be sufficient to seal the deal.

expects to take a tour of the White House soon. Now that’s cool.
will be in Boulder from June 15 to June 29.

walked the dog, listened to 80’s music, and feels marginally better.
Jonathan Lester just lost his perfect game.
is remembering that David Cone went 20-3 in 1988 and threw a perfect game when he was most likely drunk. Weird things happen.

just misread a Facebook ad as Previously, he misread a Facebook notification that actually said “So-and-so liked your link,” but won’t volunteer what the letter substitution was in this case.
is doing laundry, meaning he’ll be going without clothes if he doesn’t many to do another load before leaving for Colorado.
just obliterated his profile with stupid “Top 5” quizzes, and may have wrecked his friends’ home pages too. He apologizes for the inconvenience.

is 90 percent finished packing for his trip and wishes he could get on that bigass bird right now.

is wondering, “what is this nine hours of uninterrupted sleep deal?”
is imploring everyone not to eat silica gel, however tempting the idea may be.
is remembering a 2004 run along a Golden Gate Park trail. He surprised a homeless guy trying to urinate into a beer can for some reason; the guy looked up in bleary surprise and proceeded to topple backward. Good times.
is genuinely stupefied at how many people buy the idea that Nazism is a left-wing cause just because a fat pillhead pundit said so. He’s also posting too many status updates.
is awash in Lewis structures, valence electrons, and the inevitability of various elements existing predominantly in a diatomic state.

is not surprised that the outlets at Logan don*t work and they charge for frigging wireless.

appreciates the fact that the humidity at 5,300 feet is practically nil.

sucks at golf, but sucks even worse at creating course materials for a golf Gizmo™.This status contains special characters. It won’t display properly in the collage.
is startled, or not, at how much crappy news can arrive within an hour’s time. Deleting his e-mail account and flushing his cell phone ar ideas with great appeal.

wonders if he’ll one day get to have a state-sponsored memorial service in a huge basketball arena.
has eight browser windows open, along with six Word documents, a file folder, and a SportTracks file. Although his anal-retentive tendencies are driving him to close a few of these, he can’t justify closing even one. “Fuck it,” he mutters. “I’m going runn
doubts the veracity of the computer models that place estimates of the potential distance of Mickey Mantle’s 1963 blast off the right-field facade at Yankee Stadium at 734 feet. Or rather, he doubts the humans that parametrize them.

is off to Supercuts to eliminate the “Eraserhead” factor.
got his old laptop–presumed dead four months ago–to start up by taking out the battery, which was 100% dead and non-chargeable and thus shackling the system. He’s still glad he replaced it, but at least he now has his Internet favorites and all of his music.
is all about volume control this weekend.
has assembled a team for a corporate 5K one month from tomorrow. So far, 20% of the team members are actually employed at the business the team will represent, which is a pretty solid number.
lacks volume control when it comes to Volume Control. The thing bloated to almost 5,800 words. This isn’t a problem, but came as something of a surprise.

is chortling over the fact that human beings, despite their biological and neurological complexity, behave essentially like wind-up toys if poked in the right spots.

is wondering how many friendships have been damaged or destroyed by the vagaries and vicissitudes of electronic correspondence.
got two books he has been very much looking forward to reading in today’s mail–“Unscientific America” and “Idiot America.” Although these may sound like companion titles, their respective authors actively disagree with each other. So the question remains
wishes that humans had evolved to reproduce by budding or binary fission, as the world would be a much more harmonious place.
has finally figured out when he’s reached his upper coffee-intake limit for a single day: His armpits start to reek of it.
would love to sell a kidney to a New Jersey rabbi, but needs to determine whether he might have already done something similar during an ether blackout.
wonders if spamming his own profile counts as spamming.


would like to round up every toxic Fuddite in he U.S., stick them all in a huge dome in the Texas badlands, and fill the thing with inoperable pickups, checks that will only bounce, pickled eggs, muffin-top physiques, TVs that only get TNN, and beer farts
had his computer and laptop stolen by some miserable bastard the other day. Please be patient with him in the coming days as he tries to reassemble his life.


loves the Flatirons.
purchased a tricked-up 737 at a flea market this weekend and promptly crashed it into a local Section 8 housing complex, severely spraining his right ear and pissing off residents.
can’t stand the idiots running amok here who offer irrelevant “IQ tests” without telling you that once you’re done, you not only need to provide a cell number to get your score, but in so doing will be unwittingly signing up for some worthless service., I’m looking at you. Luckily I actually hit the “terms and conditions” link (provided in a size 0.25 font).
FACEBOOK EXPERIMENT- if you are reading this, whether we speak often or not, post a comment of your first memory of you and me. When you’ve finished, post this paragraph on your own status; you’ll be surprised what people remember about you….I’M a bit nervous about this, got it from an old friend. Let’s keep it clean.
Is hurling the verbal equivalent of monkey faeces at other people’s Facebook walls and relishing both the predictable splatter and the unholy stench that result. Now for the coup de grace: gasoline, beer bottles, and gas-soaked rags.
is stocking up on eggs, shaving cream, and toilet paper and readying his Pope Benedict XVI costume.
just built an eHarmony profile suggesting that he’s a schizophrenic Buddhist chainsaw murderer with a preference for eight-foot-tall bearded women with multiple piercings who otherwise remind him of Sarah Palin. When this profile was unaccountably approved, he reported it to the site admins as a terms of service violation.
was lazily rooting through his left nostril with a pinky finger when he discovered and extracted the remnants of an Ecstasy tablet he’d snorted in the spring of 2006. And to think that all of this time, he thought he’d developed sinus problems and had a poor attention span.
is, despite it not being dark quite yet, involved in a vicious egg fight with a city councilman dressed up as Alex DeLarge from “A Clockwork Orange.” Oops–he just glued the guy’s wife, who’s in Amy Winehouse garb, square in the forehead. Collateral damage, baby.


is singularly responsible for world peace, the alleviation of hunger in impoverished lands, and the bizarre phenomenon popularly known as “fisting.”
loves his sister.
threw a giagantic and mostly frozen pumpkin through the plate-glass window of a car dealership this morning, just to see if the cops would come. They didn’t, so he now roams free. Lame-asses.
just watched an elderly woman in a bright red miniskirt simulatenously cough, belch the first 100 or so words of “Age of Aquarius, ” hiccup, sneeze, whistle, vomit, yell “BITE ME!” and expel a massive stream of tobacco juice, and there was a joint in her mouth as well. Oropharyngeal panache of that caliber is born, not made.
is beating the hell out of a dominatrix, thereby defeating the entire purpose of hiring one.
wants to write a blog post about the immunology driving transfusion reactions based on an old episode of “Lost,” but is too lazy and preoccupied to bother. Besides, no one would care–few of you even know your own blood type.
just spotted a huge jack-‘o-lantern floating down the Bellamy River.
is being shellacked, maybe even carpet-bombed, from all sides. He has no reasonable defense, so he’ll just enjoy the smell of the smoke that surrounds him.
thinks today is a good day for building a new Xtranormal cartoon.
Has been receiving weekly e-mail lambastings from someone he doesn’t know well. These are as thoughtful as they are scathing, and just cryptic enough to allow for multiple interpretations, so he now looks forward to getting them with a perfect blend of curiosity and dread.
is observing the habits of the disc-golf crowd, and is waiting for someone to get confused and try to sip from a frisbee while firing a full can of beer into the trunk of a maple tree.
is musing, “If I speak of myself in the third person, no one will notice that I just sharted myself in a crowded Wal-Mart.” With that, he calmly hoisted a jabbering and inbred three-year-old over his head and pitched him through the plate-glass store front, startling the 101-year-old “greeter” out of his slumber.
saw a guy who had to be at least 70 listening to “Jump” by Van Halen as he cleaned leaves out his rain gutters. I didn’t know anyone still had boom boxes and sure wouldn’t have figured this guy for owning one. Awesome.
has set up a profile that is a complete joke and is “winking” indiscriminately at various members of both sexes.
needs to do laundry or else face the prospect of resporting to wearing ratty T-shirts from road races that went extinct during the Reagan administration and acid-washed jeans.
absently rubbed a spot on his neck where he cut himself shaving. Unaware that he was still oozing, he immediately returned to typing and now has dried blood on his keyboard. This is sexy, so he’ll not clean it off.
is talking people off ledges from the sanctity of the roof of a skyscraper.
hates every last one of his built-in ringtones and will probably just lose it again to avoid the anguish.
is weary of e-mail, phones, chat software, and tin cans with a taut string between them. Sometimes it’s best to just shut the hell up for a while, which is why he’d loudly announcing as much on Facebook.
hates Windows Update and its annoying “restart now, in 10 minutes, or in 4 hours?” choices and its auto-restart-on-a-timer feature. Give me a NO THANKS option or at least a REMIND ME IN TWELVE YEARS one. I could probably disable this crap in the control panel I weren’t so busy bitching.
is despondent over having started a big load of laundry he has no desire to deal with past the washing-machine phase.
just leaped to his feet, intent on delivering a powrful sermon, and knocked himself out on the roof of the car.
thinks that people’s salary histories are not any of potential employers’ damned business, especially those who don’t reveal how much a position pays. I demand to know the sexual histories of the secretaries at every place I’ve ever interviewed!
is officially living vicariously through the accomplishments of other runners on his horizon.
is tryin6 t#is new typin6 style, w#ic# has #im #earin6 t#e “voice” of Artoo Detoo.
is shaking his head at the people bitching about crowded box stores after announcing, on their way out the door, that the day after Thanksgiving is the busiest shopping day imaginable. If you know that, then either stay home and don’t contribute or shut your idiotic mouth.
isn’t concerned so much with the “who” of the panties left outside his door last night as he is with the “why.” If you could see these things, you’d know how wrong this is.


regrets that some of Kim’s and Allie’s fantastic Karma couldn’t have spilled into Julieland this weekend.
is feeling elated and intolerant at the same time, which should make for an interesting day.
is playing “Bittersweet Symphony” on his keyboard (no, not this one) and avoiding getting too worked up over weekend goings-on.
always seems to have 50 unanswered messages sitting in his inbox for days at a time and is wasting time on Facebook announcing this. Regrettably he’s now having to just ignore purely recreational ones, so don’t take offense. Well, you still can.
is a New Balance wear tester, so he should get off his ass and dog more than jog.
wishes someone would press a button and wipe out the entire frigging Internet.
is reflecting warmly on his thirties: ten fun-filled years of erratic tendencies, unmet goals, chaotic shifts in focus, broken promises, and a steadfast refusal to adopt the chief traits of a responsible adult. Ever the idealist, he’s keeping thoughts of the not-so-fun stuff at a distance.
is off to an auspicious start. As he was shuffling toward the kitchen for some Geritol, his walker broke in half, and in the ensuing tumble the contents of his Depends made a mess of the AARP newsletter that was sitting on the floor.
blew what had been a fantastic birthday to smithereens with a 10-megaton stupidity bomb, then came home to find an eviction notice under his door. He paid his rent and has the check scan to prove it, so it’s not a real issue, but this put a nice cap on a day that did a 180 really fucking quick. But he’s grateful for all the Happy Birthdays today.

  1. Sounds like fun. Any money in it? We should do next year together.

    I’ve got funnier stories but not an exhaustive lists of them. ‘Tween the two of us trembles a holiday story for the ages.

    Happy Christmas to you and a very Merry New Year! Peace and Good Will.

    (sometimes Random caPitalization is useful and, I trust, understood)
