re: Who has fallen asleep at their desk at work? - cleeveclever on 8/24/15 at 4:18 pm
When I first started my job (16 years ago), I was having trouble adjusting to my new grown-up schedule. I'd still stay up all hours like a student and then drag arse into work completely exhausted. My office was in a secluded portion of the building, so foot traffic into my workspace was pretty sp...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Mom finds "Short Bus" toy offensive - cleeveclever on 8/14/15 at 6:42 am
The problem to me isn't that there are so many people in this world that make social issues out of every little thing that offends them. It's that they have so much power and people just bow to their outrage and reinforce their power trip. It's so bad now. Can you imagine how these people's chil...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

"People say, 'I'm going to sleep now,' as if it were nothing. But it's really a bizarre activity.

re: Company to Spray for Spiders in Lafayette - cleeveclever on 6/30/15 at 10:54 am
We usually get lots of Yellow Sac Spiders at our house. It's been especially bad this year. With the heavy rains and accompanying moisture, there are abundant assorted insects for the spiders to feed on. As mentioned, do a perimeter treatment and possibly get a does or two up in the attic. It'...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Crystal Skull was crushingly terrible upon first viewing. I walked out of theater just thoroughly bummed at how lame it was. It had none of the soul and humanity of Raiders and Last Crusade. Hell, even goofy arse Temple of Doom at least had it's moments. However, I think Star Wars Episode II wa...

re: Could the Saints make a Super Bowl run this year? - cleeveclever on 6/23/15 at 3:53 pm
I think they can make a run, but like many teams Super Bowl aspirations, it depends on how quickly the new pieces gel and the overall health of the team as well as the health of the players on the top contenders. The Seahawks are set-up to be elite for a long time. As long a Wilson, Graham (stra...
