the leap day

Happy Leap Day! Yes! I have successfully written 29 posts this month to celebrate the 29 days of February that only come around every four years. I will be watching NOFX rock out a sold out show tonite at Stubb’s. An attack on the Chinese buffet has been scheduled for this Sunday. At least half […]

the t.g.t.f.

Thank Goodness Tomorrow’s Friday. I’m looking forward to going to Stubb’s after work to see one of my all-time favorite bands NOFX.

He opened his set up with Sparta’s Untreatable Disease from their latest album, Threes. He […]

the case of the mondays

I’m approaching the final hour of the day as I start this post. I definitely had the case of the Mondays. The day went by quick, but it almost felt everything was in disarray at work. I stayed busy as usual, but I wasn’t able to finish everything I planned for the day for once. […]
