One of the great things about trading is that you get to pad your binders will all kinds of wonderful new & old pieces of cardboard. One of the “bad” things about trading in the blog world is that they tend to come in waves, and an infrequent poster like myself falls desperately behind.
Now that we’ve let my last article simmer a little bit, I think we’re all ready for something a little lighter and fun.
Maybe I’ll start a discussion of another type.
Sunday, February 17th, 2013 marked Michael Jordan’s 50th birthday. But you knew all of that already, I’m sure. If you’ve turned on any sports [...]
We’ve been down this road before.
It’s a good road. It’s a fun-filled road with interesting treasures to be discovered. A road laced with history.
But this is a fragile road because it’s made of cardboard.
It’s also a never-ending road to nowhere, because I don’t know what kind of metaphor or analogy or introduction [...]
The Buffalo Bills lost their third straight Super Bowl.
Monica Seles was stabbed by a crazy fan on the tennis court.
The Chicago Bulls win their third straight NBA Championship.

Just like all the other times this has happened, we have good reasons (although, it’s terrible that we have to even get to this point to begin with). We’ve both been working [...]
It doesn’t happen too often, but occasionally bloggers will get cards out of the blue. Typically we’re not those guys. There’s usually a reason for us receiving something from somebody. And speaking just for myself, I’m fine with that. I get so wrapped up in the various aspects of my life that I can’t spend [...]
How about that Walking Dead season finale? The first half of the season was terrible, and still not wild about all the inconsistencies and random changing of the rules on the fly, but at least we got a nice action packed ending.
Oh, right. Cards. This is going to be a big one. Get ready.
So, how did you all do in your office cubicle mini-golf tournament?
What’s that? You mean you guys didn’t have an in-the-office putt-putt course set up for Employee Appreciation Day a couple Friday’s ago? What?? You haven’t heard of Employee Appreciation Day?
Truthfully, neither had I. I’ve been with that company for 7 years now, [...]
