Buy Me a Pizza Pi

Lately I’ve been infatuated with pizzerias that have stories behind them. Last Tuesday, a coworker informed me that a parishioner who used to live in San Francisco loved his local pizzeria so much that when he recently moved back to St. Louis, he bought the recipe for the sauce and opened his own restaurant here. … Read more

A Common Misconception

A Common Misconception Today I’d like to discuss a misconception that adversely affects the lives of many people, especially young people. It’s a widely held belief that simply holds no truth to it. The belief? That he who smelt it, dealt it. The “smelt it, dealt it” (SIDI) principle has been around for centuries. It … Read more

Busy Guy

I’ve been pretty busy with my job recently, and will continue to be for the next 8 days, but I wanted to inform the world that my kitten spent the better part of this evening carrying a tampon (unopened and unused, fortunately) around in his mouth. There’s very nothing cuter than to see a young … Read more

The 32

After 25 days of mad ideas, we enter the second round. The round of 32. Of the winners, 10 were “their” ideas and 22 were “mine.” That makes sense, as I laud my ideas more than other ideas on this blog. But the remaining 10 are strong ideas—they’ll be tough to beat. I really wish … Read more

The Suit Fits

Today I bought a suit. This may not seem like a big deal to many of you, but this is not something I would normally do. In fact, it’s not something I’ve ever done. All of my suits were given to me by my father—some fit perfectly right away, others needs a few nips and … Read more

The Future of City Development

(Sorry this is so long, but Blogger makes it difficult to truncate the text on the main page. Too much HTML for me to comprehend at midnight.) The other day, I posed the following question to a coworker: If someone gave you $10 million to revitalize an area of St. Louis that would both be … Read more

Walt Disney Lost

Lost ended the half-season on a strong note tonight with an episode primarily focused on Michael’s backstory. Good stuff. Intriguing questions about how the island can prevent a person off the island from killing themselves. High level of emotion from Michael himself. Interesting ending, with the viewers wondering if Ben set up his family in … Read more

Brackets, Brackets Everywhere

Does it seem to anyone else that everyone and their mother has a March Madness bracket this year? In the last couple of days I’ve been inundated with bracket requests. Five, to be exact, and then I jumped on the Facebook bandwagon. Actually, that second clause is pretty important. After filling out the first five … Read more

More Mad Ideas

Sorry about the lack of “real” posts later…soon I will have time for them, but I’m quite busy at work. For now, more matchups and more winners as the “real” March Madness prepares to begin (on March friggin’ 20! Is that still March?!) TiVo Clothes over Smearable Ink: That’s a no brainer. TiVo clothes is … Read more

Jott: Service that transcribes voicemails you leave for yourself and e-mails them to you Drive-thru confessionals: So you can be sinless on the road and on the run Vs. Outsourcing the decoding of internet keywords: … Read more
