Have you seen Thor: Ragnarok yet? No? Why not? Because it only came out today? Well that’s no excuse! No excuse at all!! Even Katie and I ventured out on opening day for it! And if we can, so can you!
I was talking tea with a co-worker the other day and we discussed the different ways that tea can be brewed. It dawned on me, as we were talking, that I had the perfect analogy to convey these methods.
I like to think that, at birth, we are all the same mentally and emotionally. We come from our mothers as blank slates full of a desire to learn, to glean, to improve on our station in life insofar as a child is apt.
I don’t know why, but I decided to do some Snippets just for Halloween! No, they won’t all be holiday themed. Maybe a few. Not all. We’ll see.
Last week’s Macro Monday challenge photo, again, had nothing to do with belly buttons or the lint potentially contained therein. But, no. Yarn. Just yarn.
As I missed our downtown business community Trick or Treat event last Thursday, today was my first chance to really see Nathan in costume and doing “his thing” as Balthazar Bratt. He was rocking it.
I need your help with something. Actually, it may be more that I need your opinion. It’s regarding my understanding of how a geospatial description is used. Here goes...
So, say a big multinational retailer that sells, well, just about anything you can imagine that runs the gamut from A to Z offered you the opportunity to have anything you order from them delivered not just to your home but inside your house if you have a special lock on your door that would provide access to this company’s delivery drivers, would you do it?
Halloween is my favorite holiday. It always has been; always will be. It’s quickly becoming Nathan’s favorite, too, because he loves cosplay. Oh man, I can’t wait until I can take him to a Comic Con.
I’ve been reading a bunch of articles about how we need to stop assuming our personal information is safe because, no matter what, hacks will happen. You can have the best software protection, firewalls, passwords, whatever... they will happen.
The spate of return-from-the-dead TV shows of late has been stirring a mix of emotions with me. I’m not talking about a one-off reunion, mind you. I mean when the actors and creators get together for either a multi-episode arc or even a half or full season or a spin-off show.
I was surprised by how many people got last week’s challenge photo. Not nearly as obscure as I expected it to be. But, let’s face it, it was a Muppet and who doesn’t love Muppets? Especially Gonzo!
Wow. It has been a while since I cobbled together a video. I’ve shot a ton of footage but I just haven’t had the motivation to edit them.
A little bit ago, I blogged about my disdain for misleading headlines. I said I hate how they give you an incorrect impression about what is contained in the article and leave you more disappointed than informed. Well, maybe not in so many words, but still and all the same.
IF YOU CANNOT PARK YOUR BIG ASS CHEVY SUBURBAN PROPERLY, YOU SHOULD NOT BE DRIVING IT. JUST SELL IT AND BUY A YUGO. NOW!
Why, yes. Yes I do like taking pictures of sunsets. It’s one of my favorite things. I don’t care how cliché it may seem, sunset photos are awesome.
For the better part of decade, I was a big fan (but only a minimal collector) of Funko POP vinyl toys. They represented a very unique take on pop culture icons and characters with their oversized heads and custom-sculpted bodies.
You’ve all heard the phrase “jump the shark,” right? If not, it’s a reference to an episode of Happy Days, later in its run, when the Fonz (Henry Winkler) jumped over a shark on water skis.
I have to admit I was truly disturbed by the belly button guesses to last week’s Macro Monday. Truly. Disturbed. It was not. Not even close. Ew.
As the Cubs seem to have yet to show up for the NLCS and I am, as a result, more than a bit disgusted about it and have few thoughts otherwise, would you be okay with some food porn from this weekend?
I like clever resolutions to stupid problems. Case in point, the other day at work, we were engaging in the timeless argument about the proper pronunciation of the file extension .gif.
Today, Katie and I hit 16 years of marriage. 16 years. We've been married as long as it takes to breed a new driver (in the United States; not sure about elsewhere). This is pretty unbelievable to me.
I’m about to head in to see the Kingsman: The Golden Circle but didn’t want to leave you hanging without a blog post. So how about a Snippet featuring a bunch of cool things I’ve been watching on YouTube recently? You down?
I need to apologize to my readers out there. I realize there are some issues with how my blog renders when you check it out. Trust me, I do. Whether that is when you actually visit my blog in your browser (hopefully very few issues with this), or in your feed aggregator/reader like Feedly or The Old Reader (more common), or in emailed notifications (do any of you actually do this?).
Sadly, in this day and age of digital and streaming media, the days of physical media seem numbered. And, yet, I find myself craving physical more and more often.
Yay! I’m so glad to have had not only a handful of guesses this past week on Macro Monday but also to have two people guess it correctly. That’s good news.
Oh, Amazon, you devious little bastages! First, it was One-Click Ordering where you only needed to click a single button to begin the ordering process. Sure there were still a couple steps after that, but it was still pretty simple overall.
We took part in our next door neighbors’ annual Soup Off Challenge today. It was our first time participating and also the first time we really hung out with our neighbors. It was a lot of fun.
I hate when I feel like I’m the last person to find out about something. This happened to me yesterday when a co-worker introduced me to a new functionality within Gmail. Not so bad at first. Then I looked up more information online and found an article dating back to 2005.
Remember oh-so-many years ago when Oprah Winfrey stood behind Book-of-the-Month-Club awardee James Frey when his book A Million Little Pieces was proven to not be as non-fiction as originally purported?
I’m horrified and sickened about Las Vegas.
I started work an hour early this morning.
Another Macro Monday with few to no guesses? Now I'm feeling really sad. Maybe logos just aren't as much fun.
Every single day, I am dumbstruck by our federal government and the depths to which certain members are willing to plunge.
This is the last cassette Walkman I ever owned. It is the Sony Sport WM-SXF10.
