  1. gMy week has sucked so far, but I expect it will scale hithertofore unimagined heights at the end.
    Of suckiness.

  2. I’m on the cusp of some major changes. My Manhattan Project is in the completion phase and at The Grind, my longtime assistant’s last day is Friday. I hate to see him go but I wish him well.

    38-year old little boy posts picture of fast car he likes on Facebook- depressed over not getting a single like unfriends and blocks 5 people 😉


    • Marina,
      The Lost in Space robot was quite smug! … His name was Robot B9, but most commonly called Robot. However, I wonder why they didn’t call it GUNTHER – General Utility Non Theorizing Environmental Robot. I must go back to the original TV show for this one.


  4. Good morning Frank, and I LOVE the Onion headlines! I have 2 for you this morning. 🙂

    Previously unnoticed family member reminded to really be careful about spooked children.

    Have a great rest of the week, Frank!

  6. I think my week will be just about the same. I just can’t wait to get out of work that’s all LOL. How’s your week? And this one “Annual teeth cleaning reveals three previously unnoticed rows of teeth” would horrify me lol


  7. As always you satirical headlines are great. My favourite this time is New Balance. Almost as the Emperor’s New Clothes – if you know the H.C. Andersen’s story…
