Hi! Welcome to the US!
3 Beds and 1 Guy
So I arrived in Elizabethtown KY tonight for a week-long project. When I checked in at the front desk at the hotel, the guy said …
“You’ll really like this room. It has 3 queen sized beds.”
“Would you like a wake-up call?” he asked.
“Sure” I said … “Call me every hour, on the hour, so I can switch beds.”
I walked in, and he was right about the beds, but wrong about my enjoyment of said room …
Frankly, being away from Tina and the kids like this hurts.
Took this from plane leaving Chicago tonight … you can see Sears Tower in the background.
Good to be home again.
No Offense, Future Man
After flying home for the weekend (I’m on “special assignment” at work in the southeast US), I saw this on my office door. Cute.
I’ll just Figure It Out on My Own, Thanks
Awesome Proposal …
No Facebook defining Social Isolation?
The other day I ran across the news about the psycho in Austin who decided to bring a gun to the UT Campus and start shooting people – only to miss and end up shooting himself in a library. Nice.
But what really bothered me when reading about this in this AP article, was the statement in the 5th paragraph:
The fact that Tooley apparently didn’t have a Facebook account “reflects a certain degree of isolation” that may be a clue to his behavior, he (James Fox, a professor of criminology at Northeastern University) said.
Whoa. Stop There.
I just can’t resist the temptation to use Non Sequitur, but … it’s just too easy! And admit, you fell for it, too.
