Half Past Friday ~ October 16th

It’s back. It’s happening and you guys are making it happen: The Half Past Friday survey. This past week, I asked you to submit your best Halloween costumes with pics being a bonus, and, once again, you didn’t disappoint. I had a host of impressive costume submissions, ranging from a …

Half Past Friday ~ August 21st

Friday again. I know for most of you, sweet release from the grind is but a few hours away. I feel that way this week as well, since the ever-accomplished B shift works Friday then Monday in this work cycle. Perhaps we’ll participate in normal family rituals such as cartoon …

Half Past Friday ~ August 14th

Back again, for your viewing pleasure, is the Half Past Friday survey. This week I got several bizarre responses to the question: “deserted island time – what would your pick for one movie, one album and one food be?” Apparently, more than a few of you are concerned with self-abuse. …

Half Past Friday ~ July 31st.

All right, Ramblers, let’s get rambling. As far as weeks go, this one’s been marked by hints of mediocrity, a dash of adrenaline, and just a splash of awareness that none of us are getting any younger. The perfect recipe for a summer stew of aging. Any way you cut …

Half Past Friday ~ July 17

FINALLY!! I begged, cajoled, harassed and browbeat you into giving me the goods for the Half Past Friday survey, and although it took you two weeks, you came through like freakin’ rock stars! As I sit here, far down in this delicious box of red wine and ranking these answers, …

Half Past Friday ~ July 10

Half Past Friday ~ July 3

Friday, and a holiday Friday at that; I congratulate you for getting to this point with your sanity. Perhaps this Fourth of July will find you and yours celebrating with parades, burnt hamburgers and overpriced fireworks. For my money, I’d rather be back in Cayucos, Ca. watching our funky hometown …

Half Past Friday ~ June 26th

The Half Past Friday survey was delayed this week due to a host of technical difficulties. And by “technical difficulties” I mean I was busy getting ready to spend some time with amigos & The Wife on a river float trip. And by “getting ready” I mean I drank my …

Same Soup, Different Bowl

The wild geniuses that are in charge of this site (ok, it’s just me and my multiple personalities) have decided on a few things: first, it’s obvious you lot love being entertained by yourselves, as is evidenced by the popularity of the Half Past Friday surveys; the downside is that …

Half Past Friday ~ June 19th

Friday, Friday, Friday! For all you 9-to-5’ers out there, this is the day of the week you’re living for. For us poor shift-type slobs, it just means a busier night, for this is when the northside knuckleheads get their party groove on. Then they fight. Then they bleed. Then they …
