I am a senior citizen. During the Clinton Administration I had an extremely good and well paying job. I took numerous vacations and had vacation homes.

Since President Bush took office, I have watched my entire life change for the worse. I lost my job. I lost my two sons in that terrible Iraqi War. I lost my home. I lost my health insurance.

As a matter of fact, I lost everything and became homeless. Adding insult to injury, when the authorities found me living like an animal, instead of...

A couple from Minneapolis decided to go to Florida for a long weekend to thaw out during one particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the very same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years ago. Because both had jobs they found it difficult coordinating their travel schedules.

It was decided that the husband would fly to Florida on a Thursday, and his wife would follow him the next day.

Upon arriving as planned, the husband checked into the hotel. In his room there was a com...

Recently I’ve been working on resource allocation estimates for our next phase of work. This is basically an estimate of how many people are needed for each task for a three-month development cycle.

For example, Task A may need 1.5 heads, while Task B might need 0.5.

So I finish the estimate, and my boss shows it to his boss. We get a response along the lines of, “No that’s not right. You only have X number of heads to allocate. Change your estimates so that your total is X.”

This r...

As seen in a cat's diary:
Day 183 of my captivity...

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of furniture.

Tomorrow I may eat another house plant. Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking almost succeeded -- must try thi...
