Mobile Minutes: Athlete of the Week


I’m a selfish person with my website, and that means I can use it for my own evil devices…gwahahahahaha!

No, seriously it’s time to put you, the reader, to work!

Check it out, I inherited a few new family members when Darco and I got hitched. One of them happens to be a 16 year old softball phenom in the city that we’re currently living in.

True story:
Last week, in one game, she went 5-5 and had 4 RBI’s (this is a crazy stat). So, in order to show some appreciation to her for being a rock star I’m encouraging all of the FilingThePapers.com crazies to go vote for her for “Athlete of the Week”.

Instructions:
Click on link above.
Select “Cheyenne Jackson, softball, Benton High School”.
Click “Vote”.
Repeat daily until this Wednesday.

This’ll be fun stuff!

Mobile Minutes: Replacements


I have never in my life had such misfortune when working with electronics. It’s true that within the past two months I have managed to break four different HTC One phones, each of the covered under my service plan. I’ve witnessed a camera malfunction in two of the phones, and the third just plain died, and today I received my fourth… Continue reading

Mobile Minutes: @NUMSHIRT ACTION!


True story.

If I only I had my hipster glasses on…

First, as always, be sure to read this piece just to get up-to-speed on what happens when I’m on Twitter for too long.

Standard, required pose for giggles.

Next, a friend of mine from down in Texas introduced me to a very random, quirky, fun t-shirt company called NumShirt.

The concept is very simple, choose a black t-shirt or a white t-shirt, next choose a number that you like (favorite number, sports number, etc…), and finally choose a font. Once your completed, you check out via their website and after payment you’ll have your own t-shirt with a number on it, that you chose, shipped to your doorstep.

I’m not making this up.

After a fun dialogue with the guys from NumShirt, I agreed to snag a shirt and in turn I’d show a photo on Twitter of myself wearing their gear. However, for the sake of entertainment I’m going to take it a step further.

I know at least 390 different accounts have subscribed to this blog, not to mention over 1,000 Twitter followers, nearly 300 Facebook friends, and a Google+ page that’s accumulated 30,000 views in the past two weeks (see why I love my job). I wanted to share the random shirt with all of you here on FilingThePapers as well. It’s fun, it’s unique, and it seems like something that just fits for the oddities that this site contains.

The t-shirt is 100% cotton, and I will admit after wearing it for an entire summer day in August, it’s a very comfortable, very, very light material. Making it a shirt that is more likely to be worn versus the standard, cheap cotton shirts with screen press art.

You can order your own NumShirt at their website that’s linked to this text.

Mobile Minutes: Impatient


I’ve missed being at the office for three days this week. I missed out on the ALS ice bucket challenge, I missed out on pupusas El Salvador style…all because of this stupid cold.

All the nasty stuff has ended, minus a serious sinus issue in my head, and an occasional blocked ear. Sudefed didn’t meet my anticipation so I’m switching over to DayQuil to get this crud moving. The coughing has started, and I know that one place that I’m at serious fault for is not staying hydrated through all of this.

I’ve been reading up on sinus congestion, colds, the flu, etc…and you know what I’m learning? It’s not uncommon for this garbage to hang around for seven days. SEVEN DAYS! Forget that garbage, I’ll drug myself stupid to get out of this apartment tomorrow. My head may not be in it, but I’ve got to get out.
