Catching A Moving Train

I made a joke the other day on the twitters that I was writing a job req, how I needed a way to say “Experience surfing on top of a relentless, multichannel, broad-spectrum communications avalanche a major plus”. That didn’t go over fantastically well with HR, believe you me, but it’s a real part of […]

A Beautiful, Momentary Friendship

For about ten minutes this morning I was in a beautiful relationship. I bike to work in the morning, and I’m pretty aggressive about it.

A little while ago, the espresso machine in our office broke down. This doomsday scenario is, and I say this without the least bit of hyperbole, the most catastrophically dire situation that can exist in this or any other possible universe.
