Month: November 2005
An interesting thing occurs when you start talking about your weight with others.If you flat out admit that you are obese (or a fatass, as I like to call myself), people will try to convince you otherwise. "Oh, phhhh. You're not THAT big." "You just need to lose a few pounds" or my personal favorite … Continue reading Fatty McButterpants
The Sky Is Falling
OK. If you haven't seen Chicken Little yet, or you haven't seen it in 3-D, then you need to go see it. Now. No seriously. Get your butt on Movietickets.com and get some tickets for whatever theatre in your area is showing it in 3-D. A couple weeks back I took Jen to see it. … Continue reading The Sky Is Falling
Philosophy of Retail
If you want to solidify your feelings on the human race, put yourself in the midst of mall traffic the day after Thanksgiving.You will either come away hating people altogether or laughing at the absurdity of it all.

Happy Birthday to Me
First off-Happy Thanksgiving.Now back to me.It's my birthday--yay! I turned 34. I can think of no significance to this other than it's a kickass excuse to eat some Dairy Queen ice cream cake.

Failed Ad Campaigns
Boring Sandwich? Try Toblerone! Unfortunately, for the folks at Tobler, Americans weren't too hip on the Coleslaw sandwich and so the subtlety of this joke was lost on them. The campaign wound up costing the American distributors of the Toblerone bar HUNDREDS of dollars.Not to mention quite a few curious calls about the intricacies of … Continue reading Failed Ad Campaigns
New AND Improved!
As if Dell hasn't included everything under the sun already with their laptops, it seems now they are catering to a whole new beast. I refer of course to the fabled Highlighter Whore.Their new line of notebooks tout the "Highlighter Bay" and include a multi-pak of 6 MajorAccent Highlighters. An anonymous and quite possibly ficticious … Continue reading New AND Improved!
The down time has finally arrived. The TwistedZen Productions site is temporarily down. I think I mentioned that I switched hosting packages. Same ISP, but I switched from their free-preview to the $5/month plan (and in the process got about 10X as many features). The files are up there, I just need to do … Continue reading Site Down

The day at work ended a wild ride of a week. So, of course the only way to erase that was to get my butt handed to me in 4 straight games of foosball.I went home and we got ready to go out for our Friday bi-monthly ritual dinner and a thriftstore run. The experience … Continue reading Friday Ninja Thriftin’
