    I found this blog on a boring Saturday afternoon. My Saturday wasn’t boring after I’d read a few of your posts. Thanks 🙂

      First Thursday of the month is always “Boring Thursday.” 😉

      Would you say that I … “cracked you up,” Egghead? Because I would never do that, honest.

    You should start a Japecake Twitter feed, if you haven’t already. I think daily witticisms from you would be gold in 140 characters.

      I’ve been giving it some thought for a while, but I’m pretty ambivalent about Twitter (where I have, in fact, a “parked,” dormant Japecake account). I really want to spend less, not more, time at the computer. But if I ever decide to do it, there’ll be some kind of notice on Japecake. Thanks for asking. And reading.

    I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for “The Versatile Blogger Award. You can check it out at:

      Wow, thanks. I feel vindicated after getting a C- in versatility in 3rd grade. It was always the fractions that got me.

    I have decided that enough is enough. I’m going to put you on my blogroll to teach you a lesson.

    There endeth the lesson.

    • November 23, 2011 8:20 pm

      Thank you. Nothing like a blogroll to go with your blogffee.

  12. January 23, 2012 5:17 pm

    I hate you a little. In a good way. Your funny makes me all goosebumpy (and other words I immediately regret typing).

  13. February 14, 2012 10:21 pm

    Found you randomly. Read three posts. I’m following now. Way to go.

      Thank you. Would you say you’re influenced by Hemingway, by any chance?

        I wouldn’t say that necessarily….but I suppose my writing style can occasionally be Hemingwayesque.

      • October 9, 2012 10:09 am

        It certainly wasn’t a criticism. In fact, I’m delighted that it isn’t Dan Brownesque.

        Ah, well then youuu are welcome….

    I am not repeating anybody elses comment. No. But Found you randomly. Read one post. Following you now. Way to go.

    • October 8, 2012 4:52 pm

      Found you randomly.

      Just like my parents found me: in a markdown bin at Kids R Us.

    Amazing blog! You’re no doubt the funniest guy on the Internet (no surprise that you actually now own it)
