Twittering my life away (2009-06-29)

An interesting article about social media as a business tool… # What's that bright yellow thing up in the sky? # Sun… come back, I didn't mean it. Whatever I did, I won't do it again. # There's nothing quite like the smell of a homeless person on the subway in the summer. # […]

Text message triggers unemployed blogger’s high school music bender

An old buddy of mine texted me last night. He’d been listening to the first Tears For Fears album, The Hurting, from forever ago. You may remember “Mad World” and the great cover of it that scored a Gears of War video game trailer. His favorite song from the album – “Suffer The Children” – […]

The Queens unemployment workout

Unemployment took away my last excuse not to go to the gym… work. And for that I will never forgive it. If you’re reading this, unemployment, consider yourself out of the will. The cats now get my ever-shrinking pile of assets. (Wifey will have to take it up with the furry ones.) My gym membership […]

Twittering my life away (2009-06-22)

I vote that it should stay 70 degrees and sunny all summer long. Who's with me? # And here come the thunderstorms. # Another site for the laid off among us… # Note to employed people… Go outsi # Note to employed people… Go outside, it's beautiful. # Either everyone has a really strong […]

A place where the unemployed blogger people run free

I need a new place to go blog and be unemployed during the day with my computer… ok, with wifey’s computer. My requirements are simple. It has to be reasonably close to home, or at least in NYC. It has to be cheap (by which I mean free) and near food and a bathroom. It […]

Unemployment killed my computer

Little Compy – LC to family and good friends – is dying a slow and painful death right before my eyes. It’s sad to watch. His once shiny white case is smudged and dinged with the scars of a hard life. His screen is scratched and imprinted with the outline of the keyboard. His battery […]

Where, oh where can I be?

Wifey and I don’t watch that much current TV. I kind of keep up with The Daily Show. Accurate and unbiased news has to come from somewhere, and that Jon Stewart guy seems like the trustworthy sort. Wifey breaks down doors to see the white trash train wreck that is Bret Michaels’ love life. Both […]

Twittering my life away (2009-06-15)

I hurt my back cleaning this past weekend. I really wish I could just pay someone to do it. # I have a new park to be #unemployed in… # Just cleaned cat barf off the computer keyboard. It's like they aim for expensive things. # Need food,and an umbrella would be nice, and […]

Entrance music for my every unemployed occasion

I want my own theme song, almost as bad as I want a job. I don’t mean music that plays during the credits before and after each episode of my life. The “Night Court” and “Facts of Life” songs are taken anyway, as is the theme to “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” (number one in the […]

Babies and their treacherous mind games

Last week my family got a little bigger… we all gained weight. Thank you, thank you, I’ll be here all week… try the veal. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law had their first child, a beautiful baby girl named Marlo Isadora. Everybody is getting along just fine, aside from common baby-type stuff that I don’t know enough […]
