Gigantic Burger

By M Davies   /     Mar 25, 2008  /     The WTF File  /     1 Comment

At work we were talking about burgers and one thing lead to another and someone ended up doing a google image search for "gigantic burger".  Go ahead, try doing a google image search for it yourself.  Click on the first image that comes up.  It is HILARIOUS. 

Or if you are lazy:

Who willingly wants to pose for a picture like this?  Congrats dude, whoever you are, you are number one on google image search.  That is a lifetime accomplishment right there.

Dear Readers,

By M Davies   /     Mar 18, 2008  /     Into the Void  /     3 Comments

I swear I’m not ignoring you.  Things are just very busy right now.  V. Busy.  My life consists of driving, packing and unpacking boxes and work.  What little time I have left is occupied by Gabby and Owen’s antics.  If someone would like to ghost write a blog entry for me, or write a guest entry to make my blog relevant and interesting again that would be greatly appreciated.  Shoot me an email at if you are interested.

I are tired now.  Must go to sleep. 

I’ll catch you on the flip side soon.  Maybe this weekend, perhaps.

Please see below email from author Lou Orfanella regarding upcoming Book Readings:

I hope all is well.  I wanted to let you know that my new book will be released this spring and to give you an opportunity to be among the first to receive a copy.  It is a poetry collection called Objects in Mirror are Closer Than They Appear and consists of two series of poems.  The first half of the book is a collection of memoir based poems inspired by my undergraduate years at Columbia while the second was inspired by the realization that those events took place over a quarter of a century ago.
If you would like to pre-order a copy please send $12 to: Lou Orfanella, P.O. Box 35, Patterson, NY 12563.  I think it contains my best work yet and am sure you will enjoy it.

Hillary’s coming. Tidey Ho!

By M Davies   /     Mar 10, 2008  /     Misc/Crap  /     2 Comments

Today Hillary Clinton is stopping in Scranton today around 6pm.  Here’s an article with more information. 

I won’t be able to attend because I start my new job today!  Wheeee.  I’m nervous as all hell.  Well I’m off to get ready.  No scrabulous today, guys.

UPDATE:  9:32pm.  I’m finally home after doing 2 round trips to Dallas and back and unloading a jeep load of shit at the new house, going to a restaurant with Gabby, Owen and Rich (and Gabby puking at the table).  Oh and Gabby has diarhea, and I have no idea if I can even take her to daycare tomorrow on my second day of work.  Legs hurt.  Must sleep.  Hillary is coming back for the St. Patrick’s day parade.

She’s going to win this state if Barack doesn’t start campaigning more around here.
