Nailed ‘Em!

As someone who has been harassed for taking pictures in a public place before, this bit from Colbert made me smile.

Give me that old time religion

I’m about halfway through reading Sarah Vowell’s The Wordy Shipmates and it reminded me that I had this old photo sitting on the hard drive unprocessed and previously unseen to the world. So here it is. Oh, and the book is fantastic. It’s about Puritans. Not the ones who were on the Mayflower or the […]

Jesus is my sommelier

Inspired by a bit of wit in a conversation this afternoon, I’ve created a blasphemously fun t-shirt I thought I’d share. Get it HERE.

The Fishstick — Making it Mellow

Posted in Geeky stuff

As many of you know, I’m a virtual dance machine. (Emphasis on the “virtual.”) That’s right, just get me fueled up with about 2-3 quarts of liquid rhythm and I’m an unstoppable ninja of jitterbug and jive.

3 things I do that are killing the planet and don’t intend to stop doing

Yesterday was Earth Day. The internets were full of all sorts of handy tips of everyday things you can do to save resources and save the planet — things like turning the water off while you brush your teeth or keeping your tires properly inflated. For the most part, I’m fairly environmentally conscious. I reuse […]

I Want You to Want Me

Posted in Geeky stuff, Internet

I stumbled upon the niftiest thing this morning on Boing Boing Gadgets. I’d summarize it myself, but Joel Johnson did a much better job than I could possibly do myself at 7am on a Sunday… Despite having nothing to do with Cheap Trick at all — except for the cheap trick we all play on […]
