Birthday Cheers. Skål!

…And upon the third decade of life, such an elaborate scheme was laid upon the woolen eyes of their victim. Never before have I been so bewildered and pleased in the same breath. Here’s the skinny on one of the greatest sting operations of all times. Jeff calls me early…Continue Reading

New Year, New Hair

I have been daydreaming about some other hair style on my head. It’s not something I’ve done much in my life, so I thought I would give it some attention. My thought for the new hair was sort of a neo-Roman kind of thing. I don’t know that the stylist…Continue Reading

Hide from the Color Blind

Isi sends me updates from the science department regarding cloaking. Apparently, it is relatively simple to obscure objects from specific wavelengths – like a copper disc surrounded by an electromagnetic field. Unfortunately, the only thing that’s particularly useful for is hiding from someone who, say, can only see in a…Continue Reading

Media Management

Out of the 10,583 images I have in my collection of images at home, I finally got around to organizing the most important 2,911 of them. That’s inclusive of family of friends, exclusively.

Make Sure You Have Clean Underwear

Balthazar received his second backpack in life – this one more official than the diaper bag/backpack we taught him to carry. He perked awake this morning with the clear intention of this backpack accompanying him to daycare (a.k.a. school). All morning he held onto said pack and eagerly considered the…Continue Reading
