This was my backyard Saturday morning. Picturesque beagle/black lab mix aside (who may or may not be relieving his overnight pressures at the moment the picture was taken), the rest of it is an absolute outrage and a mammoth middle-finger to the face of all decent autumn-loving peoples. Snow should not be perceptibly falling in … Continue reading An Old Man Complaining About The Weather
The American Grocery Experience Of Doom
The wife and I have a weekly tradition as of late, where we spend our early Saturday afternoon--or occasionally Sunday, schedule permitting--doing the weekly grocery shopping along with whatever other errands are required by life in 2022. We started the practice maybe a year or so ago, when we finally got tired of having our … Continue reading The American Grocery Experience Of Doom
Socks for Social Distancing, Day 45
I can tell that we've been living with all the pretty significant restrictions for 6+ weeks now in the way that things that I used to easily overlook are now grating on my nerves like fingernails on chalkboard...
Socks for Social Distancing, Day 33
We’ve apparently reached the point in all this where I can no longer adequately track the passage of time...
Socks for Social Distancing, Day 6
I promised something more fun for today than yesterday’s argyle, although truth be told, argyle tops the charts for me pretty much every day. Even so, I’m hoping today’s doughnut themed display doesn’t disappoint.
QIWAT: Is It Dots Or Is It Polka?’
Orange dots on a field of blue. The perfect socks to applaud FC Cincinnati's first win of the season. But, more interestingly, this particular pair triggered a conversation about what exactly defines the ubiquitous Polka Dots. Most everyone who saw these today made gliv reference to polka dots. But, is that just because of dots? … Continue reading QIWAT: Is It Dots Or Is It Polka?’
Another word about THAT word, now with added science!
Remember back around Festivus a year or so ago when I posted a rant wondering about this nonsense that everyone seems to freak out about the word “moist”? Well, as it turns out, my little reaction post was nothing in the grand scheme of thing. Because why just write meaningless blog posts about stuff when, … Continue reading Another word about THAT word, now with added science!
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 … Continue reading A Day In The Life
Thoughts About That Bengals Game
I’ve been a Cincinnati Bengals fans since I was 8 years old. I’m almost 43 now, which means I’ve been WhoDey!-ing those orange and black stripes for something like 35 years. My fandom started, not surprisingly, in 1981. When the local team goes to the Super Bowl, it tends to have that effect on a … Continue reading Thoughts About That Bengals Game
The Best Monday Of The Year (or Revisiting The Start Of The 2015 NCAA Tournament)
Yeah, you heard me right: yesterday was the best Monday of the year. Ordinarily, I’d argue that suggesting any one particular Monday could possible trump it’s 51 brethren was crazy talk on the highest order. Like, seriously, you’d be better off taking stock tips from the “magic” fortune teller that made Tom Hanks Big. It’s … Continue reading The Best Monday Of The Year (or Revisiting The Start Of The 2015 NCAA Tournament)
