Yes, I watched “The Bachelor”.

Posted by & filed under Relationships, Social Networking, TV.

I don’t like reality shows for the most part.  I enjoy American Idol once the final 12 start performing because you hear *some* entertaining music.  But I don’t have time in my life to get involved in them. Needless to say, “The Bachelor” is probably near the bottom of the rung when it comes to… Read more »

Okay this will be a short post. Hopefully it will be a fun one. How many characters introduced in movies I, II, and III are alive at the end of VI (that would be Episode 6 Return of the Jedi)? Dead Jedi ghosts do not count. They are dead. No cheating and looking at other… Read more »

Lawn Ninja — The Art of Being a Gardening Geek

Posted by & filed under Lawn Ninja.

Those who know me know that one way to describe me is “Lazy and proud of it”. When I’m motivated to do something I go at it with a passion, but for me getting motivated is the hard part. And if physical labor is involved, the harder, after all I am an in-tee-lex-you-al type. So… Read more »

Sports Geek — Playing with imortal fire……

Posted by & filed under Sports Geek.

I grew up in Sports Mecca where I’ve witnessed first hand the magnificent glory of champions. Champions who have won because they were the best and champions who have won because they refused to loose. That mecca is a wonderful world known simply as Kentucky. Today I’m committing a sin so large that I may… Read more »

Saving with Coupons

Posted by & filed under Shopping.

Just to demonstrate the power of coupon savings, Sherry and I went to the grocery last night. It was a two person job because sometimes you have to “game the system”. In this case, its the limit on coupons per trip. Our store limits the number of doubling (or in this case tripling) coupons to 20 per visit. Some people solve this by making two trips, which could be as simple as filling a cart with your items that use your 20 coupons, loading those in the car, coming back in and doing it again or in our case, take two people, two carts. I think its cheating, but if your going to play the game you have to push the rules to their limits.

Saving a lot of Money on Your Grocery Bill

As I mentioned in a previous article, my wife, Sherry won’t claim any level of geekness, but there is one thing she is very geek at and that couponing.  She has earned the title “The Queen of Free” and its a title well earned.  Just this past week, three bottles of French’s Worcestershire sauce was… Read more »

Normally… Read more »

Sports Geek Update! Steelers Win! Steelers Win!

Posted by & filed under Sports Geek.

I didn’t actually twitter much during the game.  I’m a sports geek and I was pretty focused on the game.  I think I tweeted 2 or 3 times.  I follow around 240 people and boy were they chatty during the game.  400 tweets and I would guess 70% of them were Superbowl Related. There were… Read more »

Its Super Bowl Sunday — Sports Geeks Unite!

Posted by & filed under Sports Geek.

Well most people see geeks and nerds.  Nerds wear pocket protectors, big thick glasses and have Spock Ears and a collection of Star Wars toys.  Geek is about loving something perhaps too passionately.  Generally we like our Star Wars, our computers, or our cell phones and many techies are geeks.  But you can be geek… Read more »

Posted by & filed under Social Networking.

There are various 16 things, 25 things, 40 things lists going about.  In general, someone produces a list then “tags” X number of friends through social networks and posts their list.  The tagged people are supposed to do their 16 things and tag other people including tagging back the person who tagged you.  I’ve been… Read more »

I went on my walk today and while nearly a week has passed since I pondered the future of the earth worm. Well the sidewalk was clear. I can only assume it made it to its destination. I will never know if that destination was the other side of the sidewalk or dinner for the… Read more »

I’m sitting in the family room, MacBook Pro on my lapboard, tweeting and plurking while I wait on gPartd to repartition the desktop in my office so I can install Windows 7 Beta.  Well we’ve got the Ravens-Titans game on the big screen and about 5 minutes to go in the game.  I’m a sports… Read more »
