I took a vacation day from work to write, drink coffee, and eat cinnamon coffee cake. Writing – real writing, not the usual tweeting or Facebook posting – is the first thing I tend to sacrifice for all of life’s other needs. I knew I needed to take a day just for myself. To reconnect […]
When I’m in a group and someone in the group asks if anyone’s seen movie “X”. If I haven’t seen movie “X” I will immediately attempt to distract the conversation with some form of an observational question of one of the group’s members. It comes off as a side conversation, but the group tends to […]
You know what? When my parents were growing up, they had the space race going on. The space race produced all sorts of great expectations – like flying cars and human beings living until the age of one hundred and fifty because robotic parts would then be capable of fixing each and every failing human […]

Nowadays, if you talk to a high schooler about Shop class, do they just assume you’re talking about Photoshop? Trick question. It doesn’t matter. Chris Hansen approaches you and asks you to take a seat, regardless. What are you doing talking to a high schooler?
What is it about coffee shops and grocery stores that always makes me feel like I’m five minutes away from falling in love? Knee jerk reaction is that it’s too many movies. But I don’t feel like I’m about to save a building full of drunk businessmen and women from an angry German terrorist every […]
Maybe it’s because I use product in my hair. And the two are mutually exclusive. Because for the life of me, I can’t understand the toilet bowl readers. The way I see it, you have a job to do. You wait to go in until the job’s ready for you. You walk in. Get the […]
