On Twitter and Blogging

November 13th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I can count on two hands how many times I’ve been asked what the “point” was of Twitter.  Why is it useful?  What purpose does it serve?  And normally I’ve had to answer extemporaneously; sometimes more effectively, and sometimes less. This will be one of those effective times, I can feel it.  Let’s begin.

“I’m Everywhere!”

August 25th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I woke up early this morning. After all, I’ve a schedule to keep! On Saturday I took stock of my current list of hobbies, passions, and goals. I’ve been neglecting many of them for far too long. The result of this reflection was a schedule for the next week. It’s a prototype of a large [...]

Fun In Flight

July 26th, 2008 · No Comments

One part of flight I enjoy is crossword puzzles. I don’t usually take the time to seek them during my day-to-day wanderings, but the in-flight magazine brings them right to you. Another thing in-flight magazines present is a good visual jam session. They provide some graphics and words, and it’s up to you to make [...]

The Second Most Fun Thing in the World

August 9th, 2007 · No Comments

As part of a pre-marriage Manly Dinner celebration, me and my groomsmen went out chow last night. Some food was eaten, beverages were imbibed, and conversation flowed like a proficient rapper. As the dinner wound to a close, Sean told us that some of his friends had recommended visiting the Whirlyball place that was (sorta) [...]

Back to the Basics

January 4th, 2007 · No Comments

I’ve been saving up a ton of photos recently. “Saving” in this case meaning “taking a picture thinking it will make a great story and then not actually telling that story.” Let’s see if we can fix some of that.

Wanderin’ for Wi-Fi

December 15th, 2006 · No Comments

The power is still out. It’s so exciting! It went out just before 9:55 last night. NOTE TO SELF: The recording of 30 Rock will be cut off too early. I awoke more than once to screams of tree branches being ripped from their homes, and cast upon the roof of my apartment. Their suffering [...]
