Wasting My F’n Time

Ok, I’m sorry that I haven’t quite been forthcoming with another post.  Things have just been a little busy.  But I have another story…  (yes, two stories in one day). Thanks to the Boss’ iPhone’s disappearing act, I went to take advantage of an early morning line at an AT&T store to get the new … Read moreWasting My F’n Time

The iPhone Becomes Criss Angel’s New Assistant

So, back to Las Vegas stories for a moment… What happens in Vegas apparently doesn’t stay in Vegas. Yeah, you can blame me for that one. The Boss and I rented a car one day while in Vegas. (Remember, the one in the desert.) Upon returning our rented car that same day at the Hertz … Read moreThe iPhone Becomes Criss Angel’s New Assistant

Strange Combos

Ok, everyone has seen the strange combo in their day, right? Well, on my way back home the other day from that doctor appointment, The Boss and I took a detour and went to check on her pappaw for a little bit. When we were done, we went to grab dinner on the way out … Read moreStrange Combos

Seriously folks, The Boss called me out of my office this evening because she said she had … Read moreWhat The…

The saying is that there is a Starbucks on every corner.  Especially in the Starbucks headquarters city of Seattle, you can practically get a cup of coffee for every city block you walk from your parking spot 3 miles away in to work.  Talk about a caffeine overload.  I guess they can run down to … Read moreStarbucks on Every Corner

In Which Patrick Jackson Ripped Off Medieval Times

With all due and sincerest apologies to The Badass Geek, I do believe imitation can be the sincerest form of flattery, hence the structure of my title… Vegas. Sin City. I hopped on a jet plane with The Boss Monday to head to the desert Mecca of Las Vegas. For those of you that ask … Read moreIn Which Patrick Jackson Ripped Off Medieval Times
