Advances in BirdTopia

I warned you I’d be posting about birds. One of the problems with having BirdTopia so close to my office window, is that when I move, it scares the birds away. My solution for this was to buy one-way mirror film to put on my window. After installing it (a real pain, btw), I of […]

Just Call Me Chronic

Today is a brand new day. Well, ok, it’s not really brand new, it’s been around for a while as it’s after 2PM. Still, it’s the newest day we have. For me, that means moving past the last 3 months of horrible pain. Mid June, I was a typical guy, and didn’t wait for any […]

The Defender of the Office Realm

  The office realm was a happy place. Mondays came, and Mondays went — but the supply of Monday repellant was always plentiful and hot. But then one foul, foul day, something horrible happened. The Elixir of Promised Fridays disappeared! Knowing the Office Realm could not survive under such dire circumstances, the king decided to […]

37.5 Years

That’s how long it took before I had to shave my face every day. Since I know guys that had to shave at 12, I refuse to believe this revelation marks me as a “grown up” — I sincerely hope that day never comes. For the record, I hate shaving. I’ve never really liked it, […]

Writer’s Block – It’s Not a Dry Well…

It’s a clogged pipe. I’m a regular sufferer of writer’s block, and for years I had a deep seated fear it meant I had run out of ideas. Or creativity. Or grey matter. Perhaps that’s true, but since that is depressing and impossible to fix, I decided to declare it a total lie. And now […]

The Obligatory Resolutions Post

I’m normally not a fan of New Year’s resolutions. You never hear anything thing about them after about January 2nd, and they’re often unrealistic and too general. As it happens, I’m actually at a point that I need to make some major changes, and I’m also at the point that I actually realize it. It’s […]

Do Something Silly Day 8

Today’s silly thing was quite nice. A nap. But not just a nap, a nap with a baby! Sadly, it didn’t last. The baby woke up, and wanted cake.

Do Something Silly Day 7

Yesterday I was sick, so I didn’t post anything silly. I suppose when I tried to calm my upset stomach by eating leftover Indian food it could be considered silly, but I decided to do (2) silly things today. Here is the first. I gotta say, purposefully doing something silly every day has been AWESOME. […]

Do Something Silly Day 6

Today sorta snuck up on me, or rather snuck away from me. It’s almost tomorrow, and I’ve barely been silly at all! Well, nothing brings out creativity quite like desperation. So here we go! So, it’s been almost a week. I think you should start posting some comments about the silly things you’re doing. Because […]

Do Something Silly Day 5

This may explain a few things about me. Meet my Mom. I get my silly honest. Here we are being normal. For us. If you can’t dance with your Mom, just stop in and visit mine. She’ll probably dance with you, if you’re brave enough! (PS: My Mom is awesome)
