Real Chalk

The universe sending reminders that people can be bad is just as valuable as the universe sending reminders of how good and magnanimous humans can be. Just a little heads up that life isn’t fair can go a long way. In full disclosure, I am of the belief that most people are born good but…

Hustle and Go

I was sitting outside of a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in the Korea Town section of Los Angeles enjoying a beverage with a friend.  A disheveled gentleman came up to me and said he was conducting a survey.  And by disheveled I mean a Hot Mess.  I thought to myself, really, and what organization…

In The Presence of Royalty

I can’t believe I forgot to tell this story earlier.  I was recently sitting in coach on a packed plane before takeoff.  As I walked out of the bathroom after my customary pre-takeoff tinkle, who do I see walking down the aisle toward me?; none other than Hip Hop God, Doug E Fresh.Doug is Hip…

Job Security

Time and time again we hear the phrase,”in these economic times.”, it’s quite lame because it’s an innocuous statement that does nothing to hint or capture how we got here. It’s like a friend who crashed your car and refers to it as “that time your car was crashed.” I’m not here to state the…

The Bank With a Heart of Gold

Remarkably, someone at Telesis Bank read my recent blog about their Twitter account (Twitter Quitter) and responded to me! How’s that for customer service. He wasn’t even a tad bit upset at my subtle dig at them for having a Twitter account. He was upbeat and courteous. In all seriousness a Credit Union probably has…

I’m Not a Biter…

I have had some major work done to my teeth, my two front teeth at that. It wasn’t a Hollywood vanity move. Many moons ago, I collided with a friend while playing basketball which left me with a hanging tooth. The dentist went all medieval on me and simply pushed the tooth back in. Years…

Relaxation Taxation

I don’t particularly like doing nothing. When you’re doing nothing, how do you know when you’re finished? 🙂 I’m more into doing nothing that looks like something more than I am into overtly doing nothing. I’ll “organize” my files while I watch a Law & Order marathon. Of course, I get nothing done but I…

Don’t Take Candy From Friends

I never like saying hello to someone I know when I see them totally out of context.  For instance, if I see someone I know from L.A. crossing the street in Germany and they don’t see me, I probably won’t say hello.  What are they doing all the way in Germany?  What if they’re a…

Twitter Quitter

So I needed to find the hours of a local credit union so I could deposit some sweet sweet cash. (Actually not cash but sweet sweet check doesn’t have the same ring.)I went to one credit union’s website and Lo And behold they have a twitter account…Huh? We’re talking a bank people! What 140 character…
