I didn’t find my 50″ LCD TV on Black Friday.  Lots of 720p models were rock bottom, but I want 1080p, and frankly I was a little off my game due to holiday visitors.  Cyber Monday is tomorrow and hopefully I’ll find a sweet deal to pounce on.  Today, I am more practical.  We have family flying into town for Christmas.  The in-laws.  Since nothing is worse than 9 cranky in-laws who paid too much to fly, I’ve been on the search for flight deals for them.  At this moment, the CheapoAir.com Holiday Savings Sale is the winner.  During checkout, you’ll see a “promo code” link that you have to click, and then enter promo code: HOLIDAY10 to save $10   …

Some of you went to work in costume today.  If you dressed up as Jack Bauer, Chuck Norris, a ninja or hot wings…a) you’re unworthy, b) you are blaspheming, but c) I respect your attempt.  They key flaw is that neither Jack Bauer, Chuck Norris, ninjas, nor hot wings would be caught dead at work in a costume. Everyone knows that the RIGHT way to celebrate Halloween is to watch the full-length Thriller video while teaching young children to refuse cheap candy. “A gummy, un-branded butterscotch candy that is probably half lead?  No thanks, mister. Where’s your Skittles collection?”  It’s the time of year when volunteering with the youth of America is

I’m easily distracted.  I work a lot of hours and do a lot of tedious things.  My brain breaks at some point, and I usually end up at Travelocity daydreaming of my next escape.  Except sometimes, the daydream crosses over into a dangerous and beautiful place when I find deals like $200 tickets from Houston to Cancun.  No joke.  If you want to travel to Cancun between now and mid-December for little dinero, Travelocity is hooking you up.  Live near LA?  You can fly out of LAX to Cancun for about $250.  I can’t believe this one, but it’s also just $198 from NYC to Cancun.  I mean, damn.  This isn’t something that takes a lot of thought.  Though I   …

If it’s been a while since you’ve eaten a tiny packet of peanuts and used a restroom the size of high school locker, you’re due for a trip, amigo.  Southwest Airlines is eager to see your handsome face again and is offering throngs of savings. (P.S. I love the word “throngs”.) Let me guess:  Daddy needs a new car and knows how to roll snake eyes with the best of them?  Southwest is screaming “get your butt to Vegas” with their Friends Fly/Stay/Play for Free promotion.  This is the lowest price they have offered in years.  YEARS, man.  Do it for the children.  Daddy needs a new car. Or how about a Wicked Low Price to Boston?  One-way tix start   …

Hello cyberfriends!  I’m back here again on irc.freenode.net #dating-howto with another installment of my program, How to Score with the Ladies! If you haven’t had a successful first date, then I would invite you to review my previous 46 tips that have to do with finding a date and first date tips, FTW!

I have tons of work to get done today.  Presentations to put together, meetings, techie stuff that has killed braver men, etc.  But who can expect me to be able to focus when I am stared in the face by the Jack in the Box coupon for 2 Free Tacos?!  This deal is good only through midnight today, August 4th, and I’m mentally planning my day around creating a taco break when I have no time for a taco break.  There’s only one shot to get this thing right. Tomorrow is too late.  I’ll be sure to print the coupon that I linked to on Jack in the Box’s site.  Then, I’ll grab some co-workers who also come armed with   …

The Blakesburns were well known within the tiny community of Rift Haven.  Their annual Father’s Day barbeques were always exquisite, as people enjoyed great food and drink.  However, even Mr. Blakesburn was starting to become overwhelmed, as he always attempted to outdue himself each year. So when it came time for this year’s barbeque, he knew he had to take it over the top.  As his guests arrived, he kept his barbecqe secret under wraps.  The guests settled around the patio, partaking of beer and wine, as they waited for Mr. Blakesburn to present dinner.  Whispers and gossiping went back and forth about the Blakesburn barbeque.  One individual even suggested that Mr. Blakesburn was cooking a pig three feet underground,   …

General Patton continued to study the map.  “We have to get some g#$ d#@$ gunners in there.  Do whatever it takes!” The officers surrounding Patton continued to radio the front lines.  The entire 66th Armor Regiment was deployed, attempting to secure a strategic building. Two hours later, the ranking officer in the field, Major Starks, called in on the radio back to Patton: “Sir, we have secured the target and now have complete control.  Awaiting further orders.” Patton yelled, “give me that damn radio and show me the schematic of the building.” Thirty seconds later, Patton was unfolding the building schematic and preparing to issue instructions. “Major Starks, this is General Patton.  Your orders are as follows: Proceed through the   …

I can honestly tell you that it’s nearly impossible to respond to all my emails each day.  I get tons of questions, usually centered around my natural ability with the ladies.  As Derk Novocitz from Tampa, FL writes: “Brent Peacock, help me!  This new hot chick at work won’t even notice me!  I really need your help!” So with that, I know it’s long overdue, but here’s my man’s guide to the ladies. Prelude: Ever since the first airing of Three’s Company and the likes of Jack and Larry, guys have been asking themselves, “How do they do it?”  Was it the open collar shirts with the top 3 buttons undone?  Maybe it was the ungodly amounts of chest hair?    …
