Fifteen Things We Won’t Miss About 2012

NOOOOOOOOO!!!! The Chive did a review of 2012 and presented the top fifteen things we won’t miss about 2012.  You can find that post here (don’t worry – it’s safe for work).

How in the world Gangnam Style ended up #1 on the list I don’t know – especially when you look at all the ones that were below it (like, say, #15 or #4).  Don’t get me wrong – it’s gotten it’s share of airtime (and then some), Continue reading Fifteen Things We Won’t Miss About 2012

‘Twas The Week…

Christmastime...Every year around this time I record “‘Twas The Night Before Christmas – KC Sports Edition” on my voicemail at the office.  I also put the text of it on my Out of Office reply, even if I’m not actually out of the office.  It’s one of my favorite things to do around the holidays and it never ceases to be a HUGE hit.  This year I decided I’m going to put it up on The Paul Gillespie Experience, as well.

So if you’re a sports fan, enjoy.  And if you’re Continue reading ‘Twas The Week…

Happy (And Safe) Independence Day!

This is still one of my all-time favorite pictures.  I hope the shop owner appreciated the humor of it as much as I did.  Visual puns are some of the best things out there.

While you’re reading this I’m probably either setting up an epic tank battle with a buddy and his family, cooking (or eating) some jalapeño and cheddar stuffed brats or pondering how much sunscreen is enough to protect my head from burning now that I lack the hair to handle that job.  But no matter what I’m planning on enjoying my Independence Day to the max, and I hope you are to.

Keep safe, thank the men and women who keep us free and have a great Fourth of July!

A Few Of My Favorite Things

I am going to apologize to you in advance for what follows.

Not this post – this post is a good post – but what immediately follows this particular paragraph. If you’re the inquisitive type you’ll have already read what lies next and are shooting daggers at me right now; the rest of you will be cursing me right about now because you know – no matter how hard you try – that you will not be able to stop reading until you know what horrible curse I’m going to bestow on you.  My apologies in advance…now keep reading.

My Next Shopping Trip

And yet another reason I love The Chive.

Between the article on the left here, Operation Stock Photo Swap (yes, as good as it sounds) and the angry goose (even better than it sounds – I was rolling) there’s nothing but good times to be had.

And yes, The Chive – probably the best site in the world – is safe for work.  Let me repeat: The Chive is safe for work.  Unless you live in a Communist enclave where humorous things are frowned upon you’re fine.  I mean come on – only Hansel and Gretel wouldn’t laugh at this picture.

St. Ives

I’ve started questioning authority…in the shower.

I’m taking a shower this morning and there happens to be a tube of St. Ives facial cleanser there, so I use it.  I think it has pomegranate seeds or something in it.  But whatever – it keeps my face clean and firms the skin so don’t judge.  But I digress.  The point is St. Ives.  And so what pops into my head?  The old riddle (which apparently is an English nursery rhyme, not a riddle – strikes me as kind of off until I realize we have a ton of American nursery rhymes that are even more bizarre) goes like this:
