I was expecting a calm and enjoyable Friday at the office. Everything on schedule as of Thursday night. What could possibly go wrong between Thursday night and Friday morning?


So I’m in a bit of a conundrum. I just need to make a decision that will affect my entire professional career. This calls for only one thing.


So the new Jurassic World is about a man and his pet dinosaur saving the world.


Konami is making a new Castlevania game.... for iOS. I read the title too fast and thought it said "Gilmore Girls," which I thought was odd and totally awesome at the same time. That's a mash-up I'd like to see happen.


Got the new issue of Game Informer. Had to add my own caption. Couldn’t help myself.


I call bullshit on this. If this were true, I would've been dead by n..........................................................................................


I’ve been hiding in a conference room since 1:00, because whatever my cubicle mate ate for lunch made his breath so rank it makes me want to vomit. I’m obviously not a confrontational person.


Love watching incredibly old and out of touch politicians spar with a cold dead eyed Lizard Person over things they don’t understand.


That feeling you get after taking an extended team lunch coupled with a 30 minute poop and you have no urgent emails waiting for you when you get back to your desk.


I came into work today freaked out about everything needing to get done. However, I got it all done early. Now I need to look busy for 3 hours.


After a tremendously tiring week, the wifey dragged me to Home Goods where I get to search for random household oddities, like this gigantic butt plug vase.


There are two extremely muscular men at the gym today taking photos and and video of each other while working out. Can’t help thinking that I’ve seen them before.


Bought a new fancy travel mug for my morning caffeinated beverage. Only problem, it keeps my drink too hot. It takes forever ever to cool down to a drinkable temperature. I can’t finish it before arriving to work. #firstworldproblems


Happy Flaming Robot T-Rex Friday.


Achieving Video Game Dad Strength 

Age has a way of sneaking up and defining you. You hit a certain point in life and BOOM, people begin to look at you differently, talk to you differently, and act differently around you. Even though I don't feel any different emotional...


Happy second day of Spring.


Jeff Bezos is turning into a Bond villain. He's not even trying to hide it anymore. Here he is walking a killer robot dog.


My local diner’s children’s activity mat has an activity that makes me feel very comfortable.


Tonight, while putting my daughter to bed, she said that we should take mommy to a store tomorrow and buy her a special surprise. What store are you thinking, I asked? GameStop, answered my 5 year old daughter.


Been on a real health kick. Running and lifting more. Eating right. Even trying to detox a bit, cutting coffee for green tea and drinking a lot of water. There’s only one unfortunate side effect.


I'll be the first to admit that I enjoy shopping on Amazon and use the service way too much. However, Jeff Bezos appears to be an actual Bond villain. He just creeps me out. This picture of him feasting on an iguana doesn't help.


Shut up Cher. Daylight Savings sucks.


6 months ago I lost my eyeglasses. Today I found them in a place where I have looked for them multiple times. I can think of only one word to describe my situation. DEMENTIA.


Trying to get actual work done at home during a snow storm while my wife and kids are also home due to school cancellations.
