   Those precious baby years of development and wonder only happen once. Think about those baby wide sparkly eyes, the cute little high pitched laughter, the pudgy baby feets, the acceptable double baby chins… Awwww!

A catchy NASA acronym could lead to restrooms on Mars

January 19, 2015 // 42 Comments

When NASA director Dr. Charles F. Bolden Jr. said that this year’s mission selection process was the most difficult session in more than two decades, it got me thinking: I wonder how Barbara Eden is doing? After a quick Google search found her alive and well, a second thought crossed my mind: What is the criteria for giving a space mission the [Click For More]

January 10, 2015 // 26 Comments

   Doesn’t matter how rich or how poor you are… The bed is the one piece of furniture that makes your house a home… It’s the one thing you look forward too at the end of a long day… It’s the one thing you don’t want to get out of on a cold day… It makes breakfast taste exotic… It makes being [Click For More]

The Saturday Six: When You Don’t Care Anymore

December 27, 2014 // 21 Comments

  Some people fear getting old. And some people can’t wait. There are some nice benefits to it: discounts, retirement, early dinners, electric scooters, jello, being an extra on those Lifeline Medical Alert commercials, and most importantly, being able to say whatever-the-hell you want, when you want. “Can you believe Bob just said [Click For More]

Feel free to visit the offices if you would like to see the rest of the staff’s decorations. This is how she decorated Trish the receptionist’s area:   She [Click For More]

And here’s that time I was stalked by Santa

December 18, 2014 // 27 Comments

If you follow me Facebook or Twitter (probably against your better judgement) then you may have seen this photo taken a few days ago by a security camera at Fred Meyer. Many of you have asked what the story is behind this bizarre image, which some have compared to the famous 1967 footage of Bigfoot walking through the woods (presumably just [Click For More]

November 1, 2014 // 55 Comments

   The innocence and bill free days of childhood…. If we could only go back for one day… A day filled with Chuck E Cheese and Christmas and Easter and Birthday Parities and late night scary movies on channel 10 with your best friend… But we can’t.

The Saturday Six: Exploring Daily Life Facts

October 11, 2014 // 18 Comments

  Do you know what’s funny? The World. Do you know why it’s so gosh darn funny? Because even when you look around you and everything seems to make sense…it doesn’t. Sometimes if you take a moment to peel back the layers, nothing at all makes sense. Take for example: Turtle Neck Sweaters. On the surface, this makes sense. [Click For More]

The Saturday Six: Awesome Group Halloween Costume Ideas

October 4, 2014 // 15 Comments

  Halloween will be here faster than you know it. When most of the staffers at Long Awkward Pause were kids, the vinyl costume ruled the streets. This was the one where the mask was plastic and went around your head with an elastic band. While the costume itself, you stepped into like surgical scrubs, and it tied at the top. Once either the [Click For More]

The Saturday Six: Corrupted Coloring Book Art

September 27, 2014 // 53 Comments

   As a child, coloring was always a good time waster. It didn’t matter whether or not you colored in the lines, out of the lines, or  like Robin Thicke, and colored with blurred lines. And half naked dancing girls. And Miley Cyrus, with a foam finger. Taking a poll amongst the staffers of Long Awkward Pause,  the favorite color from [Click For More]

A recent poll conducted by the staff here at Long Awkward Pause suggests that a whopping 95 percent of Americans (living within a one-block radius of LAP headquarters) either want to be — or already consider themselves to be — really cool. And not just because of their proximity to our office. I should point out that the other five percent are [Click For More]

The Saturday Six: Pizza! Pizza!

September 13, 2014 // 35 Comments

   There are a list of perfect foods in the world. Everyone’s order of the foods would be different, but we think the list would be fairly similar for everyone. One of the foods in the list would definitely be pizza. And how could it not? It’s almost the perfect food. You could make the crust anything you want, you can put any [Click For More]
