I hate updating

I love how pretty much all of my entries these days start off with an apology about how rarely I update. But this time around, there will be no apologies. Just the update. Things are going really well for me right now, and seem to only be getting better....

Fixin' stuff

See that?! See there?! I fixed the weather by complaining about it on my blog that no one reads. If I had known it was going to be so easy I would have started complaining weeks ago. I've been crazy busy with work, then the side projects. But the past few...

Whether the Weather

I'm not one who complains about the weather. I'm really not. I don't expect anyone to take my word for it, since the rest of this entry will be devoted to complaining about things I have no control over. I realize I live in Central Illinois, and one of...

What's a blog?

I guess I forgot about the existence of this blog, or at least its purpose of... ya know... updating stuff. It's been weeks since I've had anything interesting to say I guess. My life has really just been work, work, work, and more work lately. The only...

pet peeve

My biggest pet peeve is inconsiderate people, but there's a close second, too. People who feel entitled to things that they're not at all entitled to. Here's an example. I was at the gas station this morning, as I am every morning, getting my Polar Pop...

CCC

I know nothing about apetures, F-stops, shutter speeds, or ISO settings. But I didn't let that stop me. I bought myself a fancy new camera after selling my old one along with a bunch of other stuff that was cluttering up my life. Yep, I'm smack-dab in the...

MacBook Air

Apple's announcement came and went. A few cool things went down, like iTunes rentals (in HD!) and an AppleTV update. But unfortunately I won't be getting anything new from Apple this month. The MacBook Air they introduced is simply amazing in its size....

Return of the Spammers and other nonsense

Okay. It's been a while since I've posted, and even though I've been insanely busy nothing I've been up to would be even remotely interesting to read. So I'll just touch on the few things going on that are the least-not-interesting. First up, I've been...

Resolve

I have many resolutions this year. The one I have every year is to get my weight under control. I tend to gain and lose significant amounts of weight on a yearly basis, and am currently at the most I've weighed in a while. Its not that I want to be as...

Replacing a bad post.

Big news is percolating. Perc, perc, perc. Like a giant coffee maker, heating up, dripping its delicious goodness into the pot, just waiting patiently to be poured. But its still to early for this coffee. Just a tad. Which sucks, because I want to get the...

Post-Christmas

Forget everything I said about how much Christmas has been ruined. I take it all back. Christmas is great, but I'm still glad its over. I think I did well in both giving AND getting. I got the perfect combination of useful and practical, as well as...

I hate Christmas

Okay, I've already lied in this here blog post. I love Christmas. I hate Christmas shopping. I hate the traffic, the parking lots, the long lines at the checkout, and especially the stress of having to pick out that 'perfect gift' for everyone on my...

Where's the entries?

I know, I know, you 3-4 people who check this regularly are down-right ACHING for new content. And I haven't been delivering. And I can't apologize enough. And yes, the 0 of you who use the RSS feed are left out in the cold, because ever since switching...

Horror Hound Weekend

Well Horror Hound was awesome. We woke up crazy early and headed to Indianapolis. I should have started this podcasting thing way earlier, if for no other reason than all the free stuff I get. This time around we got media passes, which gave us totally...

Cleaning the Garage

I've spent the last couple of days trying to get my house in order, and I've decided to start with my garage. I love building and creating things. I always have. But to build and create, you need a clean working space and organized tools. I've never been...

vacation

Ah, I took my usual October break just last week, and it was the most fantastic vacation I think I've ever taken. I had only the most minor tasks to complete, like mowing my lawn and trimming my hedges. Otherwise, I was sitting on the couch watching horror...

Big TV

Yeah, I went out and did it. In Circuit City when you're looking at several walls of televisions, 50" for a TV seems pretty reasonable. 42" looked tiny in comparison. So I went for the 50". In my basement, however, 50" looks ABSOLUTELY ENORMOUS, in a...

Houston, we have a problem.

So I spent the weekend in Houston. It was a short visit, and filled with a lot of "wedding" related stuff. It was my first visit to Texas, and unfortunately I didn't get to see the sights or "real" Texas. We were smack-dab in the heart of yuppie-ville, so...

Green Day

So, it's [Blog Action Day][1] where we bloggers are supposed to unite and talk about some specified topic. This year, the topic is doing our part for the environment. So this little post will be about the small things I do to help out the environment. None...
