The Cure For This Evening

Brain: Download The Cure. Me: Cool. Which songs? Brain: All of them. Me: Fair enough. The girl with pink hair at table 7 keeps looking at me, I think…..oh well. My lager, my laptop and my girlfriend are on my mind like a Great Wall she’d have to carve through if she really wants to…

Cream Chipped Diary

One of my all time favorite things about living where I live is the plethora of diners. I love diner food and all its different styles and qualities, diner staff, diner design, all of it. I’ve been to many in my life but one thing still holds true: You can tell a diner by its…

…and so on.

My last post on this site was back in April, reminiscing about the life of my Grandmother. Since then I’ve been working a ton, doing podcasts and the like. Got back to “work work” a few weeks ago and it’s been a strange time warp from then to now. All in all, as I reflect…

The Last Christmas Card

“Hello Ben + Carissa, May you have the most wonderful Christmas ever, watching a young lady dancing all around and ripping open her packages. She’s a sweetheart. I care about the two of you more than words can say, and the darling little girl you created. Love Grandmom” Mary Kline: April 19, 1923 – February…

Cold, But Only Just

The chill breeze is light but I’m in shorts, so I don’t miss it. I like the cold today, not love, but 24/7/365 I’d rather be freezing my ass off than sweating my balls off.

Day 13: Part One

So now I’m sitting on aluminum bleacher on the track at the Middle School eating leftover Chinese I reheated before the 2 second drive over here. Two days ago I was game for a run, but we’re all cooped up here so it was helpful to the roommates to take one with me. I turn…

The Well

The weather is no concern, it’s Friday night and we’re here. Cheap hot chocolate in to-go cups big enough to drink a little and add enough vodka for a buzz without it showing up on your breath. The Well isn’t really a well, it’s a decorative one. A little more than 4ft from the ground…

The Perks of Standing Up

There’s been a huge push over the past couple of years for standing desks in the workplace. Little did I know how much it would have an effect on even my at-home business of podcasting and blogging, as well as my hobbies! You can’t deny the positive effects of a standing desk in your average…

Yummy Mistakes

Every once in a while, mid-task, an idea will pop into my head along the lines of “ooo what if I do it THIS way instead”. Such an idea took place on Sunday night, on a hot griddle, while preparing protein pancakes for the week. What if I just made a big-ass pancake all at…

The Princess & The Ocean (In Places #1)

I have always been in love with the ocean. There’s something about it that calls to me and comforts me. People of a certain belief will tell you it’s cause I’m an “Aquarius” or something about the way I grew up, but no matter the reason, it’s there and it’s strong. The list of things…
