hot bakery clerks [Day 2350]


Huh… So apparently, if you want to work at the Von’s bakery, you have to be really attractive. Is that even legal?

One of the greatest things about always seeking out new photos is that there’s a greater chance in finding (and being interested in) weird stuff like this. Why are these carts positioned this way? I don’t know, but it sure is interesting…

A friend of mine runs his own business, Argent Data Systems, and I was over at his shop today helping him out with a giant order he recently received. While there, I noticed that he’s got one of the greatest warning signs I’ve ever seen. I mean, that’s some serious danger, right there. I probably should have worn a helmet or something.

Comment Spam of the Week


One of the more “entertaining” aspects of having a blog is the comment spam. When I first launched the site, I left off any sort of spam catching system because I just wanted to see what happened and how soon spam might start appearing. At first, it was pretty clear. Last week, there was a slight trickle. But then, starting about this past Sunday, the deluge finally hit.
