Feeling flush for no good reason

My company sent me to the US on a video shoot in March, but it took me until today to get around to filing my expense report for the trip. Between the multiple nights in the hotel in Anaheim, California, and the numerous cab rides to and from two major airports, it worked out to …

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin absolutely killed the “throwback Thursday” internet meme last week by sharing a picture of his Apollo 11 travel expense report.

You know it’s summer when …

… I have to fire up the oscillating fan and roll my pant-legs up at the office. Because our team was rearranged a bit earlier this year, I was shifted to the other side of our building and my office gets the afternoon sun. Let’s just say I could end up taking a daily sauna if this …
