A NEW WORLD RECORD!!!

Yes, Ladies and Gents! I have just done the unimaginable! The amazing! The never thought possible! I have just broken a NEW WORLD RECORD! Ok, well, I suppose it is more of a personal record than a World Record. I’ve been married to the same woman for the past 5 years 😉 To celebrate we […]

A year ago.

http://heyitcouldbeworse.com/?p=190 http://heyitcouldbeworse.com/?p=191 http://heyitcouldbeworse.com/?p=192 It is really, really hard to believe that a year has already passed. I wish today would end. I keep finding myself about to fall into a weeping lump of cry baby. It is taking everything in my power to keep myself busy and to keep my mind off things.

Hospitals

The other day Angela went to the hospital for a little bit of surgery.  This surgery required her to go under for a bit which meant that I would have to be there for a while. Really, I don’t mind hanging around the hospital. I have an affinity for hospital vending machines. Really, who doesn’t […]

Happy Birthday, Poocho.

Ah, my sweet, sweet, stinky-faced dog, Farley, had a birthday on November 13th. He’s my little guy. This year the fuzz butt turned 10 years old. I’ve had him since he was 12 weeks old and since then he’s: Been through 2 marriages 1 divorce Deaths of my Dad and grandparents Five residences An exodus […]

Life and Love… or not…

The following post is from my good friend that I will call “RollerGirl”. Why do I call her that? First, it is the name of Heather Graham’s character in ‘Boogie Nights’. Second, whenever we talk about what we’re wearing, I tell her “Tube top. Hot pants. Rollerskates.”. There have been a few edits – mostly […]

And Now, A Word From Angela

NOTE: The following post was done by my wife, Angela, and appears without edits. Guest writer time again, kids. I will say that I am nowhere near as eloquent as my husband (my talents lie more in pure intimidation and inciting fear), but I will give it a shot as I feel this will help […]

Friday Night & I’m Alone

I hadn’t written about this before because I didn’t want to jinx her: Angela quit her job. Her last day was today. I am so proud of her that she found a new job as a Director of Marketing just a few minutes from our house and with the larger salary, greater responsibility and something […]

Yeah, Yeah…I’m Still Here.

My Dad was laid to rest last week. It was nice closure for everyone around, albeit rough. I’ll be visiting my Dad after work tomorrow, just to say ‘hello’ and spend some quality time with him. After this post, I’ll be writing my regular article – life will slowly be returning to normal. Thanks again […]

Angela the Sleep Ninja

4:45am this morning. Did you hear it? The screeching of a little girl in the early morning hours? No? Are you sure? It sounded as if someone took a 4 year old girl’s favorite stuffed toy and beheaded it in front of her. Oh, wait…that wasn’t a little girl. That was me screaming. In pain. […]

Waiting For The Funeral

My dad’s body will be flown into Dulles tomorrow. From there he’ll be transported to a funeral home in Herndon where he’ll lay and wait until his funeral. My mom still cries and my sister still utters apologies for not being able to bring him home. With the exception of the funeral we have very […]

Goodbye, Dad.

I would like to thank everyone who has either left a message for me here, via email, on my cell phone, on the various forums I frequent. Both I and my family appreciate your thoughts and condolences. It has been a very, very difficult 24 hours. From learning that my dad’s health was so fragile, […]

Pray for my father.

Even though I’m not really religious, I have no problem asking those of you that are to pray for my father. And for those of you that aren’t then I beg that you wish him well. I was at an interview today (that I nailed) and I got a phone call from my sister. I […]

Percursor To My Thanksgiving Story

First things first – the following is a conversation between me and my wife via AIM.  Many of you who talk to me via instant messengers will quickly recognize that, yes, this is how I normally hold conversations online. In an event, this is the buildup for my Thanksgiving story that I’m sure will revolutionize […]

Happy Birthday To Pooch!

November 13, 1997. That was the day my Farley dog was born. He was small, slept a lot and was pretty much a lazy boy. Skip ahead 9 years and things really haven’t changed much. Except for his weight. He’s blossomed from being the 5 pound puppy to being the 68 pound puppy. Still lazy. […]

Oh, I’m Still Alive.

Yeah, yeah. So I cribbed a lyric from Pearl Jam. Big whoop. Contrary to some of your best wishes, I didn’t fall off the face of the Earth and get smothered by a bunch of worms. Or blond women in bikinis. Damn. I would pay good money for that last part. Really. I’m now here […]

The Housing Issue

First things first: I’d like to say that I’m terribly upset and worried that Richard Hammond from Top Gear is in the hospital. Top Gear is one of the only television shows that I enjoy watching. Go and figure that it is only shown in England. Haven’t seen an episode? Check it out on YouTube […]
