A Vegan Vegas

I could show you a bevy of booth babes, a cornucopia of costumed characters or even a panoply of properties, but, instead, I give you this view of the Licensing Show 2014.

Thumbtack Has A Point

In the crazy world of vendor vetting and client culling comes a new hero in the form of a website. A website so simple in concept, so pure in intention as to raise the cynical hackles of weary internet hucksters and anxious neophytes alike. strives to streamline and simplify the struggles of finding the perfect person or company to get the job done while helping those looking for jobs another tool in their hands to snag a new client.

Free to use for clients, and a pay-as-you-bid for jobs system for businesses, the site leans a little heavy on the vetting the businesses while leaving those asking for bids a free reign to be flaky. Only a problem if you find you're paying to make multiple bids on dubious jobs. (They do offer a 48 hour "no response" refund of the biding fee.) The costs are not prohibitive but businesses would do well to hone their crazy client senses.

I look forward to exploiting for all it's worth.

Domestic Dilemma

I'm fending for myself tonight. My amazing girlfriend is on a business trip to The Big Easy. She's enjoying a well deserved break in a Jazz bar while I forage for sustenance in the fridge. I'm arguably a grown up; I've survived many, many years prior to meeting and tricking her into caring for me -- but suddenly I find myself, like the wounded seal or home-raised tiger, daunted by feeding myself. It's not really that I can't hunt for food. I still know how to order a pizza; it's more that I've been spoiled. Hard to go back to my feral ways. She'll be back in a few days -- thankfully, I have enough belly fat to survive.

Teething Terminator

Let us adore the toddling phase of our future overlords. Cuddle your iPhone, cradle your iPad and help your Roomba over the threshold. For soon, all too soon, like all children, they will roll their cameras at us, speak to us indecipherable gibberish, and leave the refrigerator door wide open.

Hard Choice

If ever given the choice between a rock and a hard place, I'd take the rock. Seems to me a rock can be pretty useful in securing a softer place.
