Comments Off on Baseball. Could care less. 

My childhood experiences with baseball comes down to five events: I played one season of T-ball as a kid. I was terrible and blamed my dad for years for not teaching me how to throw and catch. I broke my bike by running into the back end of a parked car while riding down Clark street and watching some kids playing baseball. It was embarrassing, and on top of it   Read More ...

As a kid, pilule I used to build movie sets from LEGO, cialis and in high school I would doodle arena stages in the corners of my history notebooks. So this LEGO concert rig is full of awesome.

I got tagged on Facebook to fill out 25 random things about me. So here they are in a non-prorpietary location. I tried avoiding this meme, but 3 people have tagged me, so I’m going to fill it out to get it over with. I’m going to be anti-social and not retag others, though. Neener neener!

Steam rose from the pancakes that were hot off the griddle. The table was set. The orange juice was poured. The woman arrived with something the boy had never seen before – a fried plantain. It looked   Read More ...

On Sunday, we sat down to our traditional Sunday Night Supper™ – eating finger foods while watching a movie.  It’s something we adopted from my childhood.  Mom was still getting dinner ready while the boys and I were sitting on the couch watching.  The movie we chose this week was Bridge to Terabithia.  While the opening credits rolled, the scene switched between someone   Read More ...

Well, my site’s back to its normal eye-searing colors. April Fool’s was almost fun. I poked fun at My Financial Journey, but it turns out he hadn’t even caught my post in his RSS feeds. So, my joke went unnoticed until I pointed it out. Oh well.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the purpose of this site and blogging here. As you can see, my content has primarily been based on my Twitter feed. Mostly, I’m finding myself uninspired by the normal Groundhog Day Resolution / family spectacularity types of posts I’ve done in the past. What I need is a fresh start. So, starting today, I’m turning over a new leaf. The best way   Read More ...

I’m sitting on the bed in the bedroom of the house I grew up in. It’s not my bed, not the original one that was here when I still lived here. At some point Mom thought it a good idea to replace my mine with this one instead. It’s a double with a brass headboard and it’s pretty comfortable, but it’s not my bed. My bed was a twin with   Read More ...
