I purchased this book when I was in California in February. It was one of those moments of kismet; I spotted it on the shelf, saw the title and laughed out loud. How could I not buy a book with a title like “Queen Victoria, Demon Hunter“? Seriously? I snatched it up faster than you […]

Yesterday I went to the eye doctor. I was nervous about it, because the last time I was there I had a less than stellar existence. At the time I was working at the university, and while they don’t offer vision insurance, they do offer the benefit of a free eye exam with one of […]

Peep this, yo


I’ve done this once or twice before, but I’ve a feeling that since I’m now jobless it’ll become a more regular feature: thoughts on things I’ve recently watched. It’s a good way to start off the week, no? Caprica eps2-8: Well, I’m still watching it, anyway. It’s started to grow on me, but it doesn’t […]

This doesn’t really count as “music”, but I had to post. Michelle told me about it on Wednesday when she was poking around in my mouth, and I laughed for a solid minute.

Tuesday evening I finished Ilium, by Dan Simmons. This book has been languishing in one of my piles of “to be read” books for quite some time, but after I finished the Tim Powers, I wanted to transition to something totally different, but equally dense and full of plot and character.

Two Sundays ago, I went to see Alice in Wonderland. Along with half of the rest of the state of Maryland. I had no idea there would be that many people at the theater at four on a Sunday afternoon. I kept telling myself that I should’ve waited til Monday night to see it. Oh […]

So here’s a gross story for you. If you’re stomach is easily turned, I’d recommend skipping this one. Like I said, is gross. A couple of Tuesday evenings ago my girl Michelle and I went down to Columbia to hang out and ostensibly to see a movie that she’d gotten free passes for. But it […]

target is evil


I went to Target after work last night. It was on a whim. Those are the worst times to go to Target. I should’ve sat in the parking lot and made a list of exactly what I needed to buy (it would’ve been empty). But I didn’t. So I bought two super cute dresses. This […]

I’m pretty sure this needs no explanation:
