It's more than 'just change' to food service workers

It's more than 'just change' to food service workers
I was standing in line yesterday buying a drink, when the person in front of me was eight cents short of being able to pay for their purchase. The clerk was about to cancel the purchase when somebody stepped forward with a dime. The customer who didn’t have the change was ever grateful, but then the... Read more »

Facebook's 'On This Day' becomes prosaic

Facebook's 'On This Day' becomes prosaic
By now, everybody should know that Facebook has a feature called On This Day. For the few that are not aware, it’s a daily look back at all the shit you’ve posted on Facebook in previous years. For those people who use Facebook only as a way to track milestones, this is probably a wonderful feature that... Read more »

Procrastination and planning are not mutually exclusive

Procrastination and planning are not mutually exclusive
Note: As part of this month’s Blogapalooza-Hour at ChicagoNow, we were given one hour to write about what, why and how we procrastinate. This is my entry into this month’s challenge. When it comes to procrastination, I like to claim that I have mostly perfected it. After all, I have had over 25 years of experience. Procrastination became... Read more »

Some days be glad you wore underwear...

Some days be glad you wore underwear...
I’m the kind of guy that takes the ‘casual’ part of business casual very seriously. I like to dress comfortably, and I tend to cycle through the same outfits over and over. I honestly don’t care that I have a closet full of clothes, I just grab the first few and that’s my weeks worth of outfits. After... Read more »

Grindr down: gay panic tweets (Part 2)

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Grindr is down and I&#39;m currently getting hit on via Facebook chat. The gays will always find a way.</p>&mdash; James Lohan Jenner (@james_lohan) <a href="https://twitter.com/james_lohan/status/693607217254236160">January 31, 2016</a></blockquote> <script src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Grindr, the gay social networking app, has been down for almost eight hours. Earlier today, I published some of the most hilarious tweets in regards to gays not being able to connect with likeminded people near them. However, shit is real now. It’s Saturday evening, and gays are looking for the love of their life... Read more »

Grindr is down, gay panic takes over Twitter

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Grindr is down.<br><br>The gay empire falls into chaos with twinks being the first to die</p>&mdash; SATAN (@chrismegrath1) <a href="https://twitter.com/chrismegrath1/status/693520547775451137">January 30, 2016</a></blockquote> <script  src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
The gay social networking app Grindr is currently suffering a server outage. This means that gay and really confused straight men are unable to log-in and see how close their nearest counterparts are.

Facebook is making the world a hardhearted bitch

Facebook is making the world a hardhearted bitch
I remember being asked when I was younger what I would want my super power to be if I could only have one. “I want to be able to fly,” I would normally answer. Occasionally, I’d answer something about teleporting or something silly, but there were just a small group of answers I would cycle... Read more »

Hey negative people, if you don't like what I love just keep it to yourself

Hey negative people, if you don't like what I love just keep it to yourself
As someone who loves to be in a crowd and who loves to step into the spotlight, it comes as a shock to a lot of people that I do not really care for people that much. To me, people are just so annoying, myself included. Whether they are whining about their job/partner/mistress/house or complaining... Read more »
