Five Things About Current Events

It’s Monday. That’s the day that follows the weekend. So, yeah, the weekend is over.  And that makes exactly no people happy. Well, except that one guy, but no one really likes him.  Plus, have you seen the way he watches you when you’re eating Chinese food? It’s like, dude, get your own kung pao. […]

The weekend approaches

So it’s Friday around these parts, which means that by the time you’ve read this, the weekend will either already be in full swing or barely a mere step away from your greedy, outstretched paws. Which, of course, begs the question, what are you planning for your weekend? Me? Well, what I really want to […]

A haiku because it’s autumn

Autumn brings repose Words beneath fluttering leaves Clear, crisp sky above

Look, I read a book: Under the Empyrean Sky by Chuck Wendig

If you don’t mind me dragging you a bit—by the arms and legs or hair or whatever works—down memory lane, in a previous Look, I read a book post, I mentioned how I’d gotten to a point where I was struggling somewhat reading fantasy novels.  So it came as something of a surprise to myself […]

The Sunrise at the End of the Street

That’s the view that greeted me this morning as I walked the dog. It was pretty okay, if you ask me. Seems like maybe today’s gonna be okay, too. Well, maybe unless you’re a sailor. Have a great day. And a great weekend! Don’t set the place on fire. Pud’n

A movie in 100 words or less: Parker

I was kind of looking forward to Parker. For one thing, who doesn’t love a good heist flick? At least, as long as it’s moderately reasonable with respect to the “the job” in question. By which I mean that no one is attempting to pull a gold-plated car up the side of a skyscraper in […]

The only substitute for a good night’s sleep is a Life well-lived

I’m kind of tired today.  I was ridiculously tired yesterday, and on Monday I was probably pretty close to what normal people might consider exhaustion.  Which is to say, the most of the day was a blurry gray haze that I can’t much recall. But at least now I know how Charlie Sheen sees the […]

It. Is. Done. (kinda)

Late last night, I finished the first pass of revisions for Project Macaroni. You know I’m not pulling your leg because there’s a 100% and a full progress bar over there on the sidebar to the right.  And as I’ve said before, progress bars = science, and science doesn’t lie. After wrapping up that last […]

Excuses, excuses, fish, lizard.

I really should post something interesting for you. I mean, I really want to, too. No time, though. Not this weekend, anyway. I’m knee-deep in the home stretch of revising Project Macaroni. Underwater. In over my head. Up a creek. Down and out. Insert directionally-related idiom here. After this bout of revisions, it goes to […]

A haiku because it’s still too damn hot

Back, neck, nethers? Damp.Sultry, pudding-thick, dead air Come, fall, come; this sucks!
