So I pulled up to pump for my first fill-up in the G37. The dashboard indicator came on during my ride to work, so during lunch my coworker and I stopped to fuel up. I hopped out only to find the gas tank missing. Or on the opposite side of the car anyway. I swing the car around, and go to open the tank. It doesn’t open. I come back to the car to look for the release switch. There isn’t any! Continue reading
In lieu of some recent saddening events, I had to take some time to celebrate my favorite holiday, April Fools day. Up early, I scoured the web for this year’s April Fools pranks,and I can’t say that I was disappointed.
I should begin by letting everyone know that all pranks must be approved by Groupon who now owns the rights to the holiday.

How can I get the past hour of my life back? Can I write on all my junk mail, “RETURN TO SENDER. PLEASE RE-SEND VIA EMAIL”? I’ll make a rubber stamp and mark everything this way as I place it back in the outgoing mailbox. I can go through 20-30 peices of junk mail in about 5 seconds on the computer, but it just took me an hour to go through my past month’s mail.
I pay all my bills online, with the exception of a few that still charge additional fees for paying this way. Despite not bothering to open the few that I could identify as bills, it still took me an hour to go through credit card offers, checks with low or promotional rates, subscriptions to magazines I don’t want, thousands of pages of advertisements and coupons, and even a few local pennysaver-type magazines that I can do without. After all was said and done, I kept 5 envelopes I opened, and ripped or shredded and threw away the rest. In fact, I filled a 13 gallon kitchen bag half-full with my unwanted junk mail!
I don’t know if there’s a solution for this, but if anybody has one, I’m all ears. I like my return to sender idea. Or perhaps I could fill out an address change form at the post office and write my email address on the line that reads “Street”. It’s really not worth my effort to go through my mail daily, but likewise, it’s a horror to have to do it all at once.
So I woke up at my normal time this morning. About 8:00 AM. I got ready, grabbed my camera and headed out. I work for a Radio Station on the weekends so today was going to be an easy day. The weather was miserable and we were promoting a pet store. The rain prevents some of the larget set-ups and I love animals, so pet store events are always a blast.
I pull up to work and walked in to see Jaime. I hadn’t seen her in a long time, so it was great to see her, though she’s usually only there during the week when the offices are open (She’s the receptionist.). It felt good, but something was wrong. I realized the lights were on. The lights are rarely on when I am there on the weekends. The morning DJ walked by saying hi to me. I asked Jaime what today was.
She said “Friday”.
Don’t worry. It ends well. I made it to my regular job on time (Thank god!). I wasn’t completely in “work attire” but since I had my station-branded collared shirt on, I was able to get away with it. I can’t believe I did this though!
So yesterday as work ended, I had the opportunity to watch the events of Michael Jackson’s unfortunate death unfold. As somebody mentioned his name, I opened up Twitter Search to find that everyone was reporting Michael Jackson as dead. The strange part is there were few or no references. Finally I get a link to TMZ.com. They reported he had passed away, but hitting up other news sites reported only that he was taken to the hospital. After checking numerous news sites, I settled on CNN and started watching their live feed.
Around 6:28 PM they announced that they received confirmation that Michael had passed away, but it’s amazing how sites like TMZ can start up such a stir. A handful of other news organizations, including our own local Newsday.com reported the death prior to receiving any confirmation. They cited TMZ as their source long before any confirmation had been received.
Michael Jackson was an incredible performer and artist, but definitely had a quirky sense of being. It seems that we’ll never know for sure if all or any of the allegations against him are true or not, but they’ve certainly lead to tons of celebrity gossip humor. While some of it may be tasteless, I’ve continued to get bombarded with text messages containing Michael Jackson jokes, so rather then sending them all on, I will post them here for those who care to read them to do so.
If you are offended by Michael Jackson jokes, please leave this page now.
