Home Again, Home Again Jiggity-Jig

Due to the holiday, and construction, and basically the universe’s joy in punishing me, it took something like 87.35 hours to make the 4.5-hour drive home from Gatlinburg today. At least, it seemed like it. Before getting wrapped up in all that, I thought these car socks would be appropriate for the ride home. Little […]

One Geek, Two Geek, That Was A Good Week(end)
