Yesterday the family celebrated Christmas Adam with my mom. It’s a traditional ceremony for us – one that I invented when I was very young, so a long-standing one at that. Christmas Adam is the day before Christmas Eve. Christian mythology teaches us that Adam came before Eve, though there are no days celebrating that.… Continue reading Christmas Adam

Others can attest to this, but when I become drunk with sleep, I talk gibberish. I’m sure many people do this, but my gibberish is unique in that it always makes total sense to me just as I formulate the idea and up until the moment the words form in my mouth. It’s, unfortunately, at… Continue reading It Always Makes Sense to Me
Really old people celebrating a really long time together get diamonds, if I’m not mistaken. There’s some contest between the traditional and modern gift order, but I’m guessing they’re both on par there. The 60th year anniversary gift is a diamond. I noticed that the traditional goes by a more economic scale. After 15 years,… Continue reading 9 Years Down, 51 to Go
When I was younger, sometime in my Jr. High School days, I got myself into situations of remarkable trouble. One particular spot in my past that haunts me to this day is in regards to my activities as a teenage marauder. My friends and I used to go out late and night and into the… Continue reading A Black Spot in the Road
Spirituality and religion are distinctly separate tracts within mankind’s existence. Spirituality is what is. It is what you sense and what you feel. It’s also what you feel through others. Empathy, if you will. The acknowledgment of an infrastructure, to put it in technological terms, if we are the applications. What this infrastructure is actually… Continue reading What are your Convictions?
For Christmas (Yule, what have you), I commissioned a song in Amy’s honor. I also created a video around the song for her to see Christmas morning. It was probably one of my better surprise gifts ever. The plan went off without a hitch and she says I can post it here for all to… Continue reading Everything That’s Cute
Today we visited Barbara Elise, the previously mentioned, unnamed, baby girl. It turns out they didn’t pick one of my names, though Tina did say she had up to two weeks to decide. She’s a beautiful specimen and only days old.
Some good friends of mine, Drew and [Ba]Tin[n]a, just had a baby. They already have a boy – eight or nine I think – so they’re not new at this, just rusty. The girl was born by force Monday. She’s 7lb some-odd ounces (pretty much a perfect weight). Drew, in his sleep-deprived state, has either… Continue reading Good Friends, Drew and Batinna
Speaking of childhood memories…is anyone reading this in the San Diego, CA area? When I lived there – well before Balboa Park was coined “Pedophile Park” – there was a cool ice cream shack on the beach. I don’t remember the name of the place, but they had “The Big Olaf.” It was a waffle… Continue reading The Big Olaf
