New Year’s Resolutions 2013

Posted on January 4th, 2013

This year I have decided to make some New Year’s Resolutions. This was very difficult for me, because in the past I have not stuck to any of the resolutions I’ve made. I think that was because they were too hard. I mean, I had stuff on my list like “accomplish world peace” and “stop [...]

Oh, you crazy Mayans

Posted on December 21st, 2012

According to the Mayans, today is the first day of…wait, no. That’s not it. Today is the last day. Yes, because the Mayan calendar ends today, supposedly the earth will explode. Or twirl off its axis. Or something.
Please. I have a Mickey Mouse calendar that ends in August. Do I think that means September won’t [...]

Christmas decor by an engineer

There are a lot of things that make living in a small town special. But one of the most special things is the way that your neighbors celebrate the holidays.

I mean, seriously, we go from haunted houses to snowmen with no thought to the pilgrims. I’d be sad, but the truth is, I like the [...]

Election Day, Facebook and me

Posted on November 2nd, 2012

Is it just me or has the lead up to this election lasted 500 years? No? OK, fine. Maybe it just seems like it’s lasted 500 years. And for this I blame Facebook.
Yes, Facebook.
Look, in the good old days (and by that I mean any time prior to 2004) politics was something many people [...]
