Bob’s Diner, Manayunk PA (Cream Chipped Diary)

It was a slow morning in Manayunk. I woke up on the pull-out bed of my friends apartment to the sound of fresh rain and a busy street through the open window. The kind of sounds that put my brain at ease, and help me through this quasi-hangover which, truth be told, I thought was…

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…

Out of the Frying Pan…

It’s been a long-ass time since I’ve been able to write anything moderately coherent. The past couple of months have been a whimsical adventure through stormy seas of depression, to warm blankets of serotonin, and back again. Bouts of fear, joy, and everything in between. But through all of that, barely a written word. I…

Hikes & Haiku’s

It’s been a weird blur of so many things from the time I got back to work till now. Time seems to pass so quickly these days it’s hard to keep track. I remember events, but forget what day they happened. Sometimes I just straight up forget what day it is, which happened before but…

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…

A Plant Named Harry

It’s been a bit of a transitional period for us, as far as the house goes. As with any couple there’s been some ups and downs as far as how to decorate the house. What exactly do we want our living space to be like? What are we able to do vs what we want…

Opening Day

I’ll be the first to admit I’m not the biggest Baseball fan. For the longest time I’ve rarely caught a game on TV or in the stadium, although that’s mainly because I haven’t had any actual TV service since 2009, nor money to purchase tickets. But I never fell completely out of love with it.

A Cold Cure

****I am in no way a health care professional. Simply a dude sharing his experience with a particular method to ease pain. If you are having any issues at all, please consult a doctor or other professional!**** I’m not really entirely sure whats happening. It’s one of two things, and either way, it helps. For…

La Croix

Reliable. That’s what I’ve come to know it as. It started with a text, I suppose, the day I wrote a piece about moving on from soda and trying to cut back on Monster. A few hours after it published I saw, while scrolling through Facebook, that yet another of my friends was going to…
