Guess who’s back, back again
Caitlin’s back; tell a friend
(adapted from the legendary “Without Me” by Eminem)
You may or may not have noticed, but I took a
brief hiatus from writing last year. I apologize profusely for depriving you all of my special brand of snark, but I had some MAJOR healing to do in the brain area. The good news is that I am entering 2018 healthier and happier (and stronger and snarkier!) than I have been in several years! I’m really excited to be back writing again.
Seeing as how this is the first Friday of 2018 – let’s kick things off with the first T.G.I. Five-Day of the year! (more…)
Friends, Romans, countrymen – I deeply apologize for my lack of a T.G.I. Five-Day last week. I took a week-long vacation to Migraine City (it’s lovely this time of year!). My one regret? You had to get your news from a less
famous entertaining source.
But… onwards and upwards! (more…)
Can you believe that the year is officially half-over?! It was literally just last week when I stopped double-checking that I’m writing the correct year on my checks. (Yes, I still write a few checks every now and again… and then I send them via carrier pigeon. I’m old school like that.) (more…)
Happy Friday, everyone! It’s almost the 4th of July weekend, and we were thisclose to having it be Monday, which would have been awesome, because long weekend and whatnot, but whaddya gonna do. Judging by the traffic, I think a ton of people are taking Monday off (or will be non-productive at work, if they’re expected in), so there’s that!
Shall we put on our patriotic thongs and read on? (more…)
To quote the eminently quotable Rebecca Black:
“It’s Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend”
It’s almost the weekend – huzzah! Get started a little early by reading this post at work, while sitting on the train, or perhaps while your children are arguing for the 87th time this
week day… remember, this is a judgement-free zone!
And hopefully, you’re having a better week than these people: (more…)
Happy Fri-yay, everyone! I hope you’re sitting down (or sprawled out on the couch – no judgement here!), because I’ve got the real news of the week for you.
Shall we get started? (more…)
Happy Friday, everyone! Today I’m launching a new feature called “T.G.I. Five-Days” – it’s designed to give you five conversational tidbits and/or random facts that just might make you the most interesting person at happy hour, a weekend cookout, or brunch with your friends. Or, maybe not. I don’t know who you hang out with.
My mother recently moved out of the house I grew up in – a process that naturally requires sifting through a lot of “stuff”. I know we’re all supposed to be minimalists and sparking joy to the point that we’re starting small fires, but I think that gene might be recessive in our family. I certainly don’t have it, judging by the sheer amount of cat toys underneath my dining room table alone. (more…)
How often do you hear companies say, “We want customer feedback!” and actually mean it? Hardly ever! (Trust me… I worked in customer support for a long time. We were back there typing with our middle fingers and accidentally-on-purpose disconnecting your call.) (more…)
