Irony and Ecstasy

My week in a nutshell:

Today was the annual Health & Safety Day at my IRL job. There were videos and testimonials and activities...and free lunch, which obviously was the biggest draw. Because free lunch.

There was also safety-related swag, some of which accidentally got tossed into the dumpster before the event (because that's how we roll). But a dumpster-diving expedition resulted in retrieving a few items, including some actually very cool safety glasses with the company logo on them.

As I was opening the box they came in, I sliced my hand open.

Health & Safety for the win.

Anyway, my birthday is Monday. The big 5-0. I'm taking a vacation day, obviously.

Expect a series of semi-indulgent blog posts over the next three days about this milestone.

That is all.


  1. Bloppy Thirdbay in advance! If this site permitted enoticons I would send you all the monkey emojis I have.

  2. You don’t look a day over forty. Oh, wait, that’s the Energizer Bunny. You don’t look a day over thirty. I hope you need Monday to recover from a weekend of painting the town purple.

  3. So did you get your birthday tetanus shot? You sure know how to celebrate!


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
