It's like family, only weirder…

Tastey Nuts

I’m a fan of the seed and nut family, as many can attest. I maintain a supply of them at my desk at work for the occasion of snacking, which comes regularly. There are also infinite jokes to be told that never get old: Hello everybody. I have brought my…Continue Reading

First Day in Dublin

I got into Dublin, OH this morning at 3:00am. Nice flight. The nasty weather caused some disturbances for our pilot. Two of my traveling companions did not take the turbulence well and came off the plane feeling less than stable. Our landing took us through some pretty thick snow, which…Continue Reading

DragonCon Wrap-Up

As you travel life’s highways, stop and smell the roses…and get a piercing. That’s the advice Con’rs heard, anyway. DragonCon is, as of recent years, a five day event including labor day. The event takes place in Atlanta within the Marriott Marquis and Hyatt hotels (registration was actually taken care…Continue Reading

Pod People

Yesterday, Amy and I spent the whole day doing Chewbacca pictures for the upcoming DragonCon art show. I think this year’s project is going to be really great! Earlier in the morning, I had a doctor’s appointment to attend to. While I was there, I took the opportunity to ask…Continue Reading

The Asian Cultural Experience

Today the family traveled out to the Atlanta Botanical Garden for the Asian Cultural Experience. It was a really cool adventure as expected. I only learned about the event through a Flickr group I’m a member of, the Atlanta Flickr Group. Ironically, however, I didn’t get to see any of…Continue Reading

Evil Tree (ZoomQuilt)

Matt H. introduced me to the ZoomQuilt project at Evil Tree (great name, but no apparent content). It’s a painting that you’re able to pass into until you eventually loop back around. A bit like traveling through a torus adorned with a seemless mural – you know what I’m talking…Continue Reading

First Impressions

My efforts to stay awake and finish my presentation Monday night were thwarted by constant head-nodding. Eventually, I gave up – my copy and paste actions were getting depressingly sloppy – and went to bed. I assumed that by getting to bed at a reasonable hour, I could wake up…Continue Reading

MadLib Biographies

My friend, Jason D., sent me a chain-letter to fill out and send to a million people for good luck or something. I am against such things, but I like Jason and wish to at least better his luck. Instead of emailing everyone with my MadLib biography, I chose to…Continue Reading

The Epitome of Disgusting Males

We traveled out to my mom’s place, Dancing Goat’s Farm, for the day. There we visited with her and my grandmother and her sister. They’re “refugees of Hurricane Ivan” as Gwen (my grand aunt) put it. At any rate, my mom enlightened us to the behavior of a male goat…Continue Reading
