I’m going to just come right out and be honest from the get-go: I eat Camp Washington Chili frequently. As in, often. Like, probably maybe too often. You know, kind of, um, weekly. In fact, it was Camp Washington Chili (with a hint of inspiration from our friends at the Cincinnati Coney Quest) that set … Continue reading 3-Way Thursday: The start of it all
I’ve barely got time for a fly-by post tonight, ladies and germs. Things are, and have been, crazy whacky hectic around la casa de Puddin these past few days, and well, there’s still the proverbial mile to go before I sleep. For example, in just the next few hours, I need to write a post … Continue reading A whirlwind of irrational pandemonium
Someone at work who occasionally reads Puddintopia has been harassing me lately to write movie reviews. And since I’ve recently been using GetGlue to check in the movies, TV shows, books, etc in my life—because, hey, everybody needs stinkin’ badges—I’ve also been getting the occasional “how was <insert thing here>?” question. In other words, it … Continue reading WTF are Irrelevant Reviews?
I think I could probably still use a few extra hours of sleep; it was quite a busy weekend. The highlight, of course, The Main Event, was attending the wedding of one of my bosses. For some people, I imagine that going to such an event might be filled with trepidation or uneasiness. Not so … Continue reading Some moments make fools of us all…dancin’ fools
Since I have nothing interesting to write about today, I figured I'd post a haiku. I wrote it Wednesday on a plane (can you tell?) on the way home from Chicago. Given the flight's length, a haiku was just about all I had time to write. Anyway, I'm entertained that is as close to a … Continue reading Flight Haiku
It seems like a pretty big day when you give it a little thought. The President stopped in Cincinnati to grab some coneys* and pimp his jobs plan by talking about fixing/replacing the bridge connecting the two states of his Congressional archenemies. As if that wasn’t enough, scientists at CERN believe they recorded a particle … Continue reading Hey Boris, kill moose and (especially) squirrel!
September appears to be cruising right along, largely without either consent or notice. It seems like Labor Day was just yesterday and now the first of October is looming large. That's okay, though, because, as we all know, October rocks. Shut up, it does too. It's the best month. Even better, Friday is the first … Continue reading My Summer Vacation
Didn’t I promise someone at some point that this wasn’t going to devolve into the ubiquitous “writing blog”? I think I might have, so I’m going to try to keep this nonsense to a minimum. But when you spend a week burying nearly every moment of one’s free time into editing a manuscript, you tends … Continue reading Writing is rewriting, lather, rinse, repeat
Hey, I’m back! I hope everyone enjoyed Puddintopia Guest Week 2011. I know I did. For me, there were topless beaches, frozen coconutty rum drinks with tiny pink umbrellas, swim-up bars, and quiet sunset dinners. Oh wait, I’m confused again. That’s a tropical vacation. I don’t really go on tropical vacations these days. Instead, I … Continue reading A triumphant return. Well, a return, at least
[Puddin's note: Anyone who's a regular Puddintopia visitor or loves 3-Way Chili probably already knows our final guest blogger for the week. Tom and his wife, Carla, have been bringin' it when it comes to news about better beer around here on their blog, Hoperatives (full disclosure: yes, of course, I ramble about beer over … Continue reading I’ll come up with a snappy title eventually
