There are some days that days and nights merge into one. Although most such days fall on the weekends, some fall on weekdays, the incredibly tiring ones. Ones where the phones would not stop ringing, the client wouldn’t stop complaining, your friends would all bail on you, all your assignments would be due, and theContinue reading “Getting Yanked Out of Sleep in the Middle of a Sweet Dream”

“I’ve Been the ‘Employee of the Month’ Twice and I don’t even work there” – John Pinette
I love John Pinette and his brand of comedy- nice, simple, and elegant. It doesn’t hurt that so much of it revolves around food, which I am naturally drawn to, like a moth to a flame. One comedy sketch of his is just the best – Get out of the line! Highly recommend watching itContinue reading ““I’ve Been the ‘Employee of the Month’ Twice and I don’t even work there” – John Pinette”
People Who Knock With Their Knuckles, How the Hell Do You Do It?
Now and then, I visit a friend or a family member who chooses NOT TO have a knocker on their door, a bell I could ring, or even a security system that showed them my face on their home camera. Nope, they won’t have any of it. They like and respect the good old knock.Continue reading “People Who Knock With Their Knuckles, How the Hell Do You Do It?”
Want to Witness True Happiness? Go to an Airport
I am a huge fan of the movie Love Actually. It’s my Christmas season staple. I watch it at least once a year, and subconsciously, my screening criteria for the inner circle of close friends is them having the same level, if not more, admiration for the movie. So naturally, I carry it everywhere with meContinue reading “Want to Witness True Happiness? Go to an Airport”
Why My Gym and I Don’t Like Each Other
“When the waitress asked if I wanted my pizza cut into four or eight slices, I said, ‘Four. I don’t think I can eat eight.” – Yogi Berra Pizza, they rightly say, is a slice of heaven. And I have been known to indulge when it comes to that. And I think I have figuredContinue reading “Why My Gym and I Don’t Like Each Other”
What Happens When You Say that “Gray” is Your Favorite Color?
“What’s your favorite color?” This is probably one of the most commonly-asked questions on the planet. Thanks to its simplicity and sophistication, it finds a way to get into the lives of toddlers, teens, and adults alike. I distinctly remember being asked this question in my school admission test for Grade 1. So the examiner picksContinue reading “What Happens When You Say that “Gray” is Your Favorite Color?”
After Visiting 20+ Countries, What’s the One Thing You Remember the Most?
I was watching The Graham Norton Show the other day. It seemed one of the older ones. That little episode featured Jack Whitehall, Jennifer Lawrence, and James McAvoy. One clip from that episode became somewhat famous, where Mr. Whitehall had a funny anecdote about poop. Jennifer Lawrence burst out laughing when he was done. So did I, allContinue reading “After Visiting 20+ Countries, What’s the One Thing You Remember the Most?”
Is This Dream As Weird As It Gets?
You walk into a restaurant you like, not having eaten for the last 18 hours. The girl at the counter looks pretty, but you have no time to stop n’ chat. You are on a mission—a mission to get a table. Immediately. Right this second. The restaurant seems like a stock market, with loud peopleContinue reading “Is This Dream As Weird As It Gets?”
How Often Should You Play the “I’m New Here” Card to get Out of Tough Situations
I have heard and read that our body regenerates almost completely every ten years while vital body organs regenerate faster. Thanks to the influence Three Men in a Boat has on me, I never had enough initiative to research it to vet the accuracy of this statement. Like a fool, who errs in favor of more speakingContinue reading “How Often Should You Play the “I’m New Here” Card to get Out of Tough Situations”
Why the Hell am I So Bad at Ice Breakers?
“Ice-breaker” I don’t know why, but when I think of this term, the first image that comes to my mind is a completely flushed face, extremely cold hands, and a racing heart—all mine. For those of you who aren’t aware of what these are, I envy you and then offer you a little bit ofContinue reading “Why the Hell am I So Bad at Ice Breakers?”
