    Chilly, what gives? no post today? you’re unemployed for f%cksakes… let’s go b%tch…write, write, write… tell us a story

    As potentially your only subscriber, I would like to make suggestions on how to make it easier to start/increase your wasted potentialz cult readership.

    1) categories for your blog are nice but you need a chronological list of all your posts too. (see below)

    2) the other day i thought, “i really need to read that post about foot modeling.” so i clicked on the link “potential new careers” and the only thing that came up was about being a burrito/spaghetti street vendor. wtf? why do the category links only lead you to the latest post for a particular category?

    3) what’s up with the search function? the other day my friend was talking about getting a new tie and i, your loyal reader, suggested that he read your post about ties. so having no luck with finding posts through categories (or chronologically for that matter), i used the search bar. i typed in “ties” and got “Crappy Jobs I’ve Had: Donut Cook (Part II)” as the search result. uh, again, WTF?

    seriously, if i’m going to use your blog as my bible self-help guide to life and introduce others to your teachings the fundamentals, i need to be able to navigate.

    Thanks, RB. I actually have dozens of subscribers (ok, barely plural but so what)….I will look into the archive issue, I have trusted that the geniuses at wordpress have set up something foolproof. Thanks for pointing this out, you are the best

  4. #4 by chilly17 on April 28th, 2009 - 8:48 pm

    RB – Check out the new archives page, will resolve some of the issues. I’m not certain why my WordPress template does search and archives only chronologically – means you have to scroll through everything using the “older” button at the bottom of the page. Since I mention ties in about every posting apparently, causes one to have to sift through everything when looking for the genius that is tierarchy.

    Chilly
    I’d like to suggest adding an “ask Chilly” section to the blog. I can see myself and others asking questions and seeking advice with you providing answers and commentary. With your background, you are uniquely qualifed to dispense advice.

  6. #6 by chilly17 on May 13th, 2009 - 5:05 pm

    Strong point, TZilla. Let me give some thought to exactly how to work through this. It won’t be as immediate as adding archives, but this is a solid idea.

    Chilly

    I think you’d be great at running your own Reality TV production company. Lets call it C17. Here is my first suggestion for a new show:

    Hot Chicks and Homeless Rick (A cross between “The Bachelor”, “Average Joe”, and “Rock of Love”)

    20 women compete for the love of a man named Richard who they think is super wealthy. In actuality, Rick is a homeless dude (probably named Smitty). The setting is a mansion in California and the women are all hot, young, aspiring actresses.

    The rules:

    1) The women must not use sex to win the competition. They all sign agreements to not sleep with Rick.

    2) Rick wins money ($10,000) for each girl he sleeps with.

    3) Rick sends one women home each week. At each elimination session he berates the women for not being physical enough or sexy enough (adding to the pressure to sleep with him).

    4) Rick has one “save” where he can allow a one night only “extra chance” to win his love to a recently eliminated contestant.

    5) The contests for immunity each week are all centered on sex and debauchery. Stripper pole contests, jello wrestling, lap dance competition, etc.

    In the end, Rick selects the final girl as the winner and reveals that he is in fact, homeless.

  8. #8 by chilly17 on May 15th, 2009 - 1:19 pm

    This might be the greatest idea I have ever seen. Wow.

  9. #9 by TDiddy on May 26th, 2009 - 9:44 am

    Chilly
    I know this blog is free, but I really need some more content. I’d like to fill at least an hour a day reading your posts. I guess I’ll have to move on to my second favorite site – hot chicks with douchebags.

  10. #10 by TDiddy on May 26th, 2009 - 9:46 am

    My corporate IT department just blocked the hot chicks with douchebags link. I guess I’ll have to go steal some office supplies.

  11. #11 by chilly17 on May 26th, 2009 - 11:39 am

    you’ll have a post later today….it will explain why i’m a little light to start the week. enjoy the paper clips

  12. #12 by TDiddy on May 27th, 2009 - 12:01 pm

    Your blog is inspiring me to quit my job and take up gambling (not sure if that was the intended effect). How about a post on your strategy for craps?

  13. #13 by chilly17 on May 27th, 2009 - 12:14 pm

    Maybe later, I am a little burned out on gambling at the moment. Focusing most of my energy on my trading strategies, which is completely unlike gambling. I just ran some IRRs on possible outcomes for one of my positions that I like. First scenario I looked at has a sweet 6% IRR to Jan 2011. That’s awesome; definitely the road to riches.

  14. #14 by navysucks on September 17th, 2009 - 11:06 am

    Hey Chilly, how about adding a new post when you get out of rehab?

  15. #15 by chilly17 on September 17th, 2009 - 12:39 pm

    Hmmmm…..smells like a Dark Knight….or member of Knights Out….will be back with some new sh*t soon, trying to hook up a reunion of 1988 T-Bell colleagues…will be EPIC….

  16. #16 by Ala on October 5th, 2009 - 7:42 pm

    No post today??

  17. #17 by chilly17 on October 5th, 2009 - 8:34 pm

    Will be working on it later, planning my fall vacation (which might encompass most of nov/dec)…and just went to spinning class, so might vomit in the near-term…

  18. #18 by TDiddy on December 3rd, 2009 - 11:08 am

    Hey – how about a post on Tiger?

    I’d like to know why guys like Jordan, Bryant, Woods or any successful young athlete/business mogul/political giant gets married.

    Why settle for one when they can have multiple girls. Don’t tell me they want to, because they all cheat anyway. Divorce is a lot more expensive than breaking up with a girfriend or baby momma. I think guys like Lil Wayne and Derek Jeter have the right idea.

  19. #19 by chilly17 on December 3rd, 2009 - 11:36 am

    The Tiger story to me is so boring, is it that surprising? The great part is that she fucking tuned him up with a 3 iron; I thought scandinavians were peaceniks?

    It makes zero sense for them to ever get married, I assume they do it so they can churn out some kids. Those turn into some pretty expensive offspring – Jordan’s divorce allegedly ran him $150 million. If Elin leaves, it will prob cost Tiger more than that…they are morons…

  20. #20 by TDiddy on May 12th, 2010 - 4:41 pm

    Chilly

    I know that you traveled extensively in your past life as a superstar I-Banker. I travel quite a bit with my new gig as a glue salesman. I’m frequently stuck behind people who are either A) Going through airport security for the first time and are clueless how the process works or B) Unaware that their labia piercing is setting off the metal detector.

    How about a post about annoying airport hassles based on your extensive experience?

  21. #21 by chilly17 on May 12th, 2010 - 5:54 pm

    Not a bad idea, Tuff Daddy. I am hard up for ideas at the moment, so i’ll probably take you up on that. I can tell you right now, my #1 problem with air or any other travel (including walking) is people with backpacks, suitcases, etc that don’t treat said item as an extension of their body, acting like it’s a completely random accident if they turn wildly and spill coffee (okay, wine) all over the unsuspecting gentleman trying to catch up on the latest maxim.

  22. #22 by TDiddy on March 16th, 2011 - 11:00 am

    Hey – True or False?

    You wish that you were a nuclear plant operator in Japan right now?

  23. #23 by chilly17 on March 16th, 2011 - 5:25 pm

    Dude, that shit is so depressing. I have a post halfway finished (about something else, obv) but can’t muster the energy (no pun intended). I was just telling SO, I hope those 50 unlucky bastards who are left to deal with it become extremely wealthy, heroic figures in Japan.

    All that stuff had me going back and reviewing some of that nukeular stuff that I’ve been (very successfully) trying to forget for the last 12 years. They are probably wishing they hadn’t gone with the plutonium mix. Depressing, the mood around chillyville is kind of 9/11ish these days.

    And I have a weird rash on my eye.

  24. #24 by TDiddy on March 17th, 2011 - 12:27 pm

    I hope the Jizz in your eye clears up.

    Its funny how many time I’ve heard the old story that the radiation exposure from a nuke plant is leass than taking a cross country flight.

    I think I’d tell my boss to go f*$k a goat if he told me to don a radiation suit and go fight a f*@king nuclear radiation fire.

    All the japanese can relocate to Detroit – it isn’t much better here but at least its not glowing – in fact, its fairly dark. :)

  25. #25 by chilly17 on March 18th, 2011 - 3:05 pm

    It’s your mom’s fault, I was getting MFA credit for working on the set of “Anal Grannies 11: Meet The Craigslist Handymen.” You never mentioned she is a squirter.

    Yeah, I wouldn’t be in a huge rush to be one of the 50 heroes, either. Wonder how that went down? Did they just look at the work schedule and say, “kobayashi-san, you are supposed to work this weekend, but instead go fight this radiation fire”? Draw straws? Angry Birds tournament?

  26. #26 by kittyinthemiddle on September 15th, 2011 - 4:39 pm

    chilly – yes – i’m like 3 years behind the 8 ball and just discovered your site. You are HILARIOUS. I’m sitting on the trading floor (one of those lol) and just started crying and choking on my water at the same time. People are staring. Help me. But seriously – wtf – who are you?? I think i’m in love ;)

  27. #27 by chilly17 on September 15th, 2011 - 10:18 pm

    what up kitty? thanks…i will try to write more stuff thanks to nice comments such as yours!

  28. #28 by kittyinthemiddle on September 16th, 2011 - 8:17 am

    please do – i need a distraction – i sell off a little piece of my soul here every day …

    i love your writing style (i know you’re probably thinking – i have a writing style?) – and your humor is right on point for me. Keep it coming!!!

    p.s. – i assume there is a Mrs Chilly? ;)

  29. #29 by chilly17 on September 20th, 2011 - 8:31 pm

    you aren’t, by chance, a submarine officer or investment banker, are you? (turkey plant worker seems unlikely, but i def remember leaving some soul on the floor there – some fat guy hosed it down the drain with all the other discarded parts)

  30. #30 by kittyinthemiddle on September 22nd, 2011 - 10:55 am

    think less meat processing technician and more banking. Both equally soul-less? Whatever – it pays the bills for my ridiculously overpriced manhattan rental lol. So what’s up, Chilly? When’s the next installment …? Enquiring (and fetching) minds want to know ;)

  31. #31 by chilly17 on September 28th, 2011 - 1:17 am

    Kudos, Kitty – the “fetching” comment led to some serious browbeating not only from SO, but the other ladies I was out with Friday night….apparently “fetching” makes the claws come out in Chelsea – happy to have you aboard (you make at least four fetching ladies I know of) and am about to even publish some new sh*t….

  32. #32 by kittyinthemiddle on September 28th, 2011 - 8:24 am

    Sorry chillz – and my apologies to you, Mrs Chilly!!!!

    loved the Chipotle post today – had to get my chilly fix in before my 8 30 am staff/soul-crushing daily meeting. Btw – sadly – i am “The Perfectionist” – i know, i know! But when I say ‘just a drizzle of sour cream’ – i mean JUST A DRIZZLE. Do I need to shout? Yes, i do. And I love Mrs Chilly’s bartering system – great tip – i’m going to try that next time. I, too, refuse to pay the $3 for guac – and really, really – who needs that much meat???

    Glad to hear that you are going to get back up off your slacker ass and post more often. Yay :)

  33. #33 by P. Channon on October 12th, 2011 - 4:33 pm

    Just found your website randomly, but in two days have read most if not all of your posts. You’re hilarious. Hope you start posting a lot again and that you return to a few stories from your banking days.

  34. #34 by chilly17 on October 13th, 2011 - 1:12 am

    Thanks, P. I am going to return to cranking out some stuff, but at the moment I’m holed up in a dirty hotel in memphis with a real bitch. This situation might be a post unto itself (but probably not as the sound bite is better than the synopsis. I did touch set foot (or tread) in five different states today, which was nice.

  35. #35 by P. Channon on October 13th, 2011 - 9:42 am

    Safe travels Chilly…you’re bookmarked now and I’m looking forward to more stories/observations.

  36. #36 by TDiddy on January 23rd, 2012 - 1:12 pm

    Chilly – how about a post about Joe Paterno?

    All of these JoePa supporters drvie me nuts. I guess its ok to F@*k a few kids in the A$$ as long as you can coach a winning football program.

    Paterno is a piece of sh*t and I hope his grandkids get a chance to spend time at “camp” with Jerry Sandusky.

    Burn in hell JoePa

  37. #37 by chilly17 on January 23rd, 2012 - 3:13 pm

    I’m still reeling from the Niners loss, f*ck.

  38. #38 by TDiddy on March 5th, 2012 - 4:04 pm

    Chilly

    I’m going to be in vegas on the 29th, 30th and 31st. Just an FYI in case you get an itch and want to go.

  39. #39 by chilly17 on March 5th, 2012 - 4:15 pm

    Hmmm, given my current status as poor-assed-beeyatch I will have to keep you posted…I’m generally always down for Vegas but might be a stretch for the kid right now. You will probably be quite busy perusing all the leaflets littering the streets anyway.

  40. #40 by kittyinthemiddle on March 20th, 2012 - 8:50 am

    Chillz – i’m sure there is zero chance that you’ve not seen this – but figure I would share, on the off chance you don’t get Esquire in Arkansas …

    http://www.esquire.com/women/women-we-love/sofia-vergara-0412?click=pp#img

  41. #41 by chilly17 on March 20th, 2012 - 8:42 pm

    Wow, had not seen that, thanks. Hard to believe she has a kid in college. Currently holds the title “Hot Woman Who Even Other Women Agree Is Hot” Around here, we don’t have Esquire, but we do get Bass Fishin Weekly and 4 Wheeler Livin, so I’m pretty caught up on important local topics.

  42. #42 by kittyinthemiddle on May 9th, 2012 - 9:50 am

  43. #43 by chilly17 on May 9th, 2012 - 1:47 pm

    Haha – I just saw that! I’ll have my agent contact her, since we are both heavy hitters in the entertainment world should be NBD

  44. #44 by kittyinthemiddle on May 9th, 2012 - 4:57 pm

    chillz – woo her with some yellowtail and your charm ;)

  45. #45 by chilly17 on May 11th, 2012 - 1:00 am

    Those are certainly the best options at hand

  46. #46 by kittyinthemiddle on November 27th, 2012 - 3:27 pm

    Chillz!!!! I’m sorry to hear things haven’t been stellar for you of late :(

    In other news, the behemoth bank i work for recently unblocked your site, so now I can peruse at will (not sure what that’s about, maybe they sensed you had a genuine desire to behave better lol). I hope to see more posts from you soon!!

  47. #47 by kittyinthemiddle on January 10th, 2013 - 9:45 am

    Come back, chillz!!!
