Huge pile of really smelly unwashed clothes

I had a backpacking ex-workmate stay at my apartment while he was in town to collect some paperwork. He dumped a huge pile of really smelly unwashed clothes on the living room floor – which was so bad I had to bag it up in a bin liner when I got home. He smoked weed all day in the living room and that smell also permeated everything. Then when he was good and high, he went out into the stairwell and smoked cigarettes, leaving the butts and ash on the steps. I asked him once to clean it up, which he did, but the next day he did it again and the landlady came and spoke to me about the mess. I had to ask him to move on after a few days.

What a guy!

I thought this was hilarious…

Josh Fogg Quote

# Pittsburgh’s Josh Fogg, April 21 vs. the Cubs:

0 IP, 3 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 1 WP, followed by this quote: “I know it sounds funny to say, when I gave up five runs and didn’t get any of the six batters I faced out — but I feel pretty good about the way I threw.”

Good Experience Quote

I get this newsletter: Good Experience – the part about Graphic Designers resonated with me.

Create a good customer experience.

Which is to say, many companies base their user experience on the wrong things: office politics, “me-too” reactions to competitors, the “rules” of information architecture tactics, inertia (“we’ve always done it this way”), the ego of the graphic designer (who just wants to work at a print magazine), serving advertiser interests at the expense of the user, and a dozen other excuses for why they just can’t afford to pay attention to the customer.

Emeka Okafor Quote

“I’ve heard people say that success can be your first step toward failure. You can get complacent and you forget what got you to where you are. So I have to remind myself, ‘Keep working. Keep working, Keep working.’”

Dooce Quote

“For nine months I grew a human being inside my belly and then I pushed it out my vagina and now I’m feeding it with my boob. Biology is so fucking weird.”


This reminded me of a quick conversation we had this morning at BNA HQ. Donovan asked me where a money belt or fanny pack goes. I pointed out the following:

A fanny pack is strapped to the outside of your waist.

Money belts go underneath your pant line, above your underwear, just on top of your testicles or vagina/pubic area.

Comments from BootsnAll Traveler

We were e-mailing about his upcoming trip – I said “Bring double the money and 1/2 the shit” – here is his reponse. LOL.

Re $$: I’m gonna be saving like mad, but I’m fortunate that the job (when I get it) pays ok and I have very few expenses; I can save at least half of my income without feeling too deprived. I’m the stereotypical 40 year old guy living in his parent’s basement. Of course when I want to visit all my nice shit I drop by ex-wife’s

Merril Hoge Quote on Steve Spurrier

You can mask the fact that Spurrier quit by using the word “resign,” but it just goes to show that if you’re not a real man, the NFL will chew you up and spit you out. It doesn’t matter how much money you’re making, it’s not worth it. You’ll want to quit, and that’s exactly what Spurrier did.
