Nothing to note in 1% better

A few weeks ago, I got a note on an entry I wrote about drinking. It wasn’t a very nice note so I crafted my response and then decided to wait a day before I sent it. Here it is: Thanks for your...


There were good days and bad days. On the good days, not too many people died. On the bad days, the cafeteria in the basement served a mystery meat. Today was a good day, Mr Lowden in Room 4 took...


Day 18 Three Sapporo and then three whiskeys (one big one and two small ones) in a whiskey glass with three ice cubes. So what? I needed a cheat day. I needed to bask in a warm embrace and it was...


I’d like to set fire to the tent city in Victoria Park. They say they are homeless but I say they are just camping for free. When I meet a lady and I want to talk with her, I ask her her name. Wh...


After spending time and money on new vinyl plank flooring, a nice neutral so-named ‘moth grey’ paint throughout, new doors, baseboards and trim, new lights and a new electrical panel to replace t...


Day 15: ducks gotta fly I’m abandoning the 30-day no drinking 16-hour fasting blog title, continuing the 30-day of no drinking with no drinking meaning one or two bottles of beer a night. I had t...

bang on in Long story, short

Bangladeshi countryside is flat lush luscious green, muddy mud mud, life is slow, not easy. Electrocuting myself every couple days, with my electric water boiling prong and tin camping cup, a mor...


I always end up working with these crazy women but now Minky has lost whatever grasp on reality she once had. Our pod of four desk which also includes Lightening Larry and the Peanut is on the se...


Day 11 I was inspired at the meeting yesterday morning to come back and after a short nap fiddle around with the chat widget on my websites. With more than 500 visitors a day, I should be better ...


In Shanghai I noticed that they were holding the sixth annual jazz festival. I was there for a trade show that was in its ninth year. There was the second annual this and the fourth annual that. ...


May 6 I had two Heinekens yesterday. I’m not a monk, not anymore. One I had when I was barbecuing the burgers. The other I had a little later on, after the dishes were done and I was reading my 6...


The factory is always hot and humid. The sun goes down. And with the machines running, we slip out the side doors, catching a breeze, having a smoke, the night sky looking like a rotten peach, ...


Over coffee every morning I scan my rss feeds, reading quickly the local news. I actually only read the local news headlines and the first line of text – that’s all the rss gives me unless I clic...


I put the book down for a week and now I don’t know who anyone is. It is a story about robbery and revenge but it could be a story about government. All the characters are grifters and cheaters a...

I am rabbit in Captured thoughts

I slept in today. It was after 9am when I crawled out of bed. I was up briefly at 6am but played a podcast and whatever it was that I was thinking of that woke me up, disappeared like a fart in t...


Day -4 I finished off the bottle of Rye watching Netflix last night. Woke up with a dry mouth and a headache. I was dopey all day. I swear this time no more drinking. I have a beer after lunch j...

Crazylegs in Long story, short

I catch Crazylegs flirting on a video chat site. It’s after business hours and I just stopped in to drop off some ad copy for the creative team. If it is there when they come in tomorrow morning,...

strokers in 1% better

About a decade ago, I signed myself up for some very unusual sales training. I spent $7,000 of my own money on this training that went on for about a year. I think money that you spend on learnin...


My most recent client asked for a discount. But he waited too long, after the sale, and I easily brushed the discount aside. I knew it was coming. Partly because he’s a Hindu, partly because I sa...


I’m all for road trips. The long stretches of single lane highway with nothing but trees and rocks on both sides, the Eagles or John Prine or some other 70s radio rock on the stereo, my travel mu...


I can’t go home. I go for a drive to the limestone city to a little chip stand I know. I sit by the river and eat a basket of french fries with spicy mayo and real bacon bits on top. I get in an...


Damn. I got jury duty. I had two jobs, I had dishwater hands And on the weekend in a rock and roll band What goes around comes around. If you’re going to give it, you’re going to get it It would...

Pigs in Space in Captured thoughts

My sales manager tells me he’s going to fire my colleague. My colleague has been waiting for it, wanting it. Wanting the decision to be made for him. I wonder when it will happen. I wonder if he ...


Instead of heading back to the car, I decided to take a walk around the outside of building. Nothing looks very good after a winter and before spring sets in. We are in that purgatory, that in be...


Last year on my RSS feed reader, (am I the only one who still reads the world wide web this way?), I muted all stories that mentioned Trump. For the record, I also muted Star Wars, Mehgan Markle,...
