The 52nd US State – Wuh What?

So I was running a report today to see the traffic to our site per US state. Adobe Analytics returned 52 states. Of course I thought that was odd. Digging a little deeper I realized they were counting DC as a state. Ok I get that, but check out what the 52nd state is…

52nd US State. What?!?

I wonder what their state motto is. “You’ve got mail!”?

Five Uses for Your Latest Phone book

Many of you may have come home to find the latest phone book on your doorstep. Or someone recently dropped them off at your office. A guy stop in today to deliver to our office and he asked, “Do you want more than four?”  My thought was, “Do we really need even one?”

Yellowboook continues to deliver printed phone books even though many if not most go straight to the trash or recycle bin. I’d also venture to guess that anyone under 40 may not have ever even used one. No one ever asks for them they just show up!

So, if you are at a lost as to what to do with your new paperweight, or you just feel bad about throwing them away. Here are five tips for to do with them:

  1. The Door Stop

    Nothing says utility like the “phone book doorstop.”the phone book doorstop

  2. The Window Brace

    If you have old or broken windows, don’t use a stick, use the phone book! It even has two settings. Lay it on it’s side for a small opening and stand it up for a wider opening.The phone book windo brace

  3. The Booster Seat

    Tired of being too short when you sit at the table? Use the booster seat. One book not enough? Use multiples for even more height. Also works in the car.the phone book booster seat

  4. The Foot Rest

    Need to put your feet up while you ponder next great business idea? Try the phone book footrest. Great for relaxing and adjustable as well. the phone book laptop stand

  5. The Laptop Stand

    My personal favorite. It’s perfect combination of old and new. The phone book laptop stand.the phone book laptop stand

22 Things You Realize As an Adult

1. Sometimes I’ll look down at my phone 3 consecutive times; and still not know what time it is.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind-of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu-Ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again.

13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of a Word document and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with “Miller Lite” than “Kay”.

17. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

18 How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

19. People just really never will learn how to merge before a construction site.

20. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Jeans? Jeans never get dirty; and you can wear them forever.

21. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket; finding their cell phone; and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey…but I’d bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

22. The first testicular guard, the “Cup,” was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it took only 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.
