Projects

I'm a guy who will always have a bunch of projects. Home improvement projects, pictures that need drawn, bikes that need sanded, webpages that need to be constructed. I've had a bunch of failures when it comes to projects made in the hopes of making it...

The big 2-8.

Well, another year older and another week or 2 wiser. Birthdays have lost a whole lot of their meaning for me over the past couple of years. I suppose that's an issue that comes with age, but I guess I never thought its importance would disappear...

Human decency

Biting my tongue. Biting. It's bleeding. I'm trying to be mature. Anyhoo, things have never been better in Wassonland. Last night Hill and I went out to celebrate a couple of big steps in our lives... me going back down to just 1 mortgage and 1 set of...

Free as a bird

Another busy weekend in the bag. Hill was on call or otherwise preoccupied, leaving me to my own devices for the entire weekend. I took advantage of my alone time with a bunch of horror movies, watched while in my boxers of course, and ordering some...

Wee, a Wii!

So, I sold Jeepy this weekend. It was a tearful separation, for sure. Very emotional. Wait, that's not right. I didn't really care at all. She was 10 years old and in need of some money and hard work to make her pretty again, and I wasn't interested at...

Week 4

Okay, so it's 3 weeks until habit, and I'm 4 weeks into my exercise schedule. And I feel great. This morning I jumped right out of bed, right into my workout clothes, and was out on the street within 5 minutes. I locked myself out of the house, which...

exercising

So, this year has taught me a couple of things about my exercise regiment. 1. With my love of food and predisposition to be a little on the chunky side, exercise is a necessity for me to remain healthy. 2. Without some amount of consistency in my...

House

The plan is to finish my kitchen this weekend. Man, that will be awesome. I haven't had a finished kitchen in about 3 months or longer. Not only not finished, but not even remotely close. I guess as a single guy, I don't use the kitchen a lot anyway. But...

iProducts

Big news from Cupertino today, kids! A bunch of new iProducts for public consumption! The Shuffle is the same, just new colors. But it's still an inexpensive and awesome entry level player. The nano is now a fatty! Full 320 X 240 resolution for videos,...

Social Networking

Welcome to the 2nd totally boring post in a row all about putting stuff online. Now I'd like to discuss social networking. It's a great idea. MySpace is a wonderful idea executed in a horrible, frustrating, ugly and ridiculous way, but I've been hearing...

God I hate Spam.

[Case in point][1]. I've been dealing with spam for most of my professional life, and it's an online presence which almost makes me want to abandon my career of... ya know... putting stuff online. First we got email spam. Thousands of people across the...

Everythings coming up Wasson

Yep, everything rules right now. iPhone: I caved. I bought it. I love it. It's so easy to use and gives me an absolutely insane amount of functionality. Worth every dime, for sure. No wonder it's getting such rave reviews from everyone who touches the...

Sick days

I did something yesterday I haven't done in 2 and a half years: I called in sick. I know it was a chicken sandwich I bought from an outdoor vendor that attacked me from the inside out, leaving me with a very unpleasant night. I won't go into all the gory...

Okay, no more complaints

A long time ago, but really not long ago at all, I said I'd stop using this blog deal as a place for me to just complain, but I've been doing a whole lot of complaining lately. Which means that when I'm 50 and reading back on this blog to remember what my...

Misery in Missouri

I do think I'm going to make a fantastic dad. Someday. Not today though. This weekend was spent in Missouri with the whole family, nephews and niece included. It was a long car ride and a whole, whole lot of "togetherness". I consider myself a really...

foot in mouth disease

Well, this weekend is another out-of-town, vacation type weekend. It'll be less fun than the others, though. I'll be waking up early tomorrow, loading my ass into a crowded minivan and sitting there for 8 hours on a little trip to Missouri. So I'll be...

Wildcat Bluff

Well, this weekend was the big garage sale. Outcome: disappointing. This was followed by the open house. Outcome: disappointing. Otherwise the weekend was good and productive. Friday I hung out with friends at Kouri's eating delicious food and drinking...

Well we had

Well, we had our first open house this weekend in an effort to sell my house. Turn out was disappointing, at best. My best lead to buy the house didn't show like she promised she would, which was frustrating. I tried to withdraw $40 the other day, only to...

no more complainin'

Okay, okay. So my last entry was a whiney piece of crap about my lack of money. Whine, whine, whine. But let's stop whining for a second and focus on stuff that rules, namely Horror Junk. Wolfie pointed me to a couple of semi-anonymous reviews written...
