Trashed: A Buffalo News Review

If you’ve been following along with the real-time investigative reporting on the disappearance of our trash cans, you may be shocked to notice that this story has gone entirely unnoticed (or ignored) by the media. You and I know, as believers that the truth is out there, that there’s a reason for this. It’s easier [ view the rest ]

The TQS September Issue

Recently, we reviewed our online presence to see if there was something missing from our contributions to the internet. Obviously, this blog is rich with shrewd tidbits and thought-provoking musings on a myriad of relevant topics, but we couldn’t help wondering where else our signature blend of wit and insight might apply. And then it [ view the rest ]

Trashed: A Fair to Remember

After a brief hiatus, we’ve returned for Part 3 of Trashed. I hope you weren’t holding your breath. I know it seems like I don’t have work to do or a life to live outside of this investigation and it’s true, I don’t. I went to New York City over the weekend and spent the [ view the rest ]

Trashed: A Theft on Lake Street

The Quilted Squirrel is located on Lake Street in Hamburg, NY at the intersection of Highland Ave in a rather unassuming building housing several other local businesses.

Words of Encouragement

Everyone, meet Kit! Kit recently joined our team as an intern – and besides helping us with daily tasks and laughing at our jokes, she’s also great at giving the occasional pep talk. So great, in fact, that sometimes it takes us a few days to really let her profound words sink in. This was [ view the rest ]

The Man Behind the 9am Bag of Buffalo Wing Flavored Pretzel Thins

Here at the Quilted Squirrel, we have a handful of daily occurrences that manage to provide a sense of comfort among the chaos of agency life. They’re kind of like our rocks* that keep us grounded. The “beep beep” of the alarm system when the door opens. The whirring noise when the tenant upstairs flushes [ view the rest ]

Holidays at the TQS World Headquarters

It’s the most wonderful time of the year over here at the TQS World Headquarters! The hap-hap-happiest season of all. We’ve had parties for hosting, marshmallows for roasting*, and caroling out in the snow.** There were scary ghost stories*** and tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago.**** You may be thinking to yourself, [ view the rest ]

I Like Your Buns

When it comes to buns, we all have our preferences. Some like ‘em big and voluptuous. Some like ‘em small but firm. Some like ‘em round. Some like ‘em slightly irregular in shape. But there is one universal, self-evident truth: Everyone likes ‘em filled with cinnamon and covered in icing. That’s how the fine folks [ view the rest ]
