Lies, Damned Lies, and Star Wars

I seem to recall swearing up and down not even a month ago that I was going to reset my evening activity schedule and commit to writing and/or reading instead of spending three hours staring, slack-jawed, at a screen full of bright colors and explosions. In fact, there’s probably evidence of said promise in the […]

A Day In The Life

I’d fully intended Monday’s post to stand as a sort of personal affirmation about the shift in my nightly focus away from binging on superheroes in high definition and towards kicking ass and taking names my own self, on my own projects. However, shortly after the post went up, it was pointed out to me […]

A Saint Patrick’s Day Primer

The calendar once against says today is March 17th. You know what means, right? It’s Saint Patrick’s Day, aka, the Feast of Saint Patrick, the one day of the year dedicated to the patron saint of Ireland, a man I’m pretty sure was canonized more for his conversion of Irish pagans to Catholicism than anything […]

The Slow, Torturous March  to Parental Obsolescence, Part I

A few nights ago, after brushing his little, seven year-old teeth while wearing a set of colorful, seven year-old’s pajamas, my youngest son bounced up to me to make an announcement. The bouncing wasn’t a surprise, of course; when you’re seven, if your movement from place to place isn’t primarily bounce-driven, something needs a band-aid, […]

In Preparation For Snowpocalypse ‘16

If at any point, you had the grand misfortune of being exposed to your local news today – perhaps because you visited a dear, sleepy relative at Withering Acres, or you lost your remote control and were held captive for 3 frantic minutes to whatever local channel you happened to fall asleep in front of […]

Because Friday Should Include Some Nonsense

I briefly considered writing something meaningful and profound today, because, if nothing else, I am the king of meaning and profoundness. Also, be thankful. For roughly 7 seconds, I considered using the word profundity in the sentence above. I think we can all agree, though, there was absolutely no call for any of that kind […]

Amazon Sends You The Darnedest Things

   We recently ordered a USB hookup with a Bluetooth extension for my car. You know, so I can pretend my 8 year old Gunmetal Gray Honda Accord Middle Aged Man Sedan is super cool and hip and able to play the Apple Musics that all the kids are into these days. The Puddinette got […]

Hour Of The Day When I Realized I Forgot To Eat Lunch: 4

Homo Sapiens, Almost Evolved

I had to do a lot of technical writing at work today, which is something you’d think would be right down Broadway for me. Yeah, no such luck. When it comes to technical things, I like creating. But writing dull, critical, required documentation about said creating. Not so much. The good news is, though, even […]

The Gallon Sized Bag Of Foolishness

On occasion, I have been known to chase significant, specific change in my life as the result what most people might generously refer to as “an odd tangent”. Less generous individuals might, however, suggest that sometimes I get a wild hair up my….well, you know. The point is, from time to time I get this […]
