For some reason, I always end up contemplating dropping a Big Opinion Post at the worst possible time(s), and honestly, I don't know what gets into me when thinking about it. For one thing, with a few rare exceptions, I don't really do that kind of bloggery. That's not to say I couldn't or shouldn't, … Continue reading Do you like scary movies?
Photo credit WikipediaLast weekend, I finally gave in and joined Goodreads, which, for those of you know in the know, is social media for book people. You log your books, comment on them, and hook up with people you know from the real world or the great wide interwebs. Err, wait, I mean connect, I … Continue reading How a stack of "To Be Read" books tastes remarkably like crow
As soon as your birthday has come and gone (as mine has now done for 2012), everyone and their third step-cousin asks if you "got anything good". The answer is, yes, yes I did get something good. I would make you guess, but the old, "is it bigger than a breadbox, smaller than a tricked-out … Continue reading Best Birthday Gift EVAH
Because I am your classic type-B ego-monster (yes, I realize those two things don't seem to go together...but ask the Puddinette, it fits me), when my birthday rolls around each year I prefer to avoid making a big pompy to-do (which is NOT to be confused with a big, poopy to-do), but yet feel compelled … Continue reading 39 Years: T-minus 365 days and counting
I love my blog. I love having a blog. I love knowing that when the mood strikes, I have a spot on the interwebs dedicated as my outlet to wax poetic about um, I dunno, pickle brine. I love having a place to put all my craziness right out in full view of the world. … Continue reading Comment Spam: I Just. Don’t. Get. It.
Puddin chose to pen a book of non-fictionafter a novel, it'd just take some conviction.But when he sat down to write,he soon realized his plight...This non-fiction stuff's an affliction!
If you live in or around Cincinnati, OH, unless you're living under a rock or in a cavernous subterranean shelter stocked with enough canned food, water, comics, and beer to survive until Armageddon—aka, Election Night 2012—is over, you're probably aware that the Moerlein Lager House opened last week. To say the place has had a … Continue reading What do I think of the new Moerlein Lager House? Glad you asked!
Well, turns out I was close with yesterday's ridiculous weather prediction. It didn't quite reach 75 degrees today, but weather.com tells me that it's currently 63. So, yes, while yesterday it was cold enough that I was afraid my hands were going to turn Morning-Sky Blue, today everyone's begging the professor to have class outside. … Continue reading A brief change to the regular lecture schedule
Winter finally decided to swing through town and brought a cute-but-pointless dusting of snow with it this morning. Of course, that means it's cold again after a decidedly moderate stretch. It also means that my hands are cold today. Cold enough that I find myself blowing into them and rubbing them constantly in an effort … Continue reading Cold hands
The second of March and Friday to boot! But another small thing has me fixin' to hoot. It's his day, you see, the anniversary of his birth. Few writers I've read, could bring me such mirth. He was a great one, I'll say still loved far and near. And while sadly he's gone, his works … Continue reading Happy Seussday!
