Less of a Blog

Somehow, this site has become less of a blog and more of a quarterly periodical—and a thin one at that. In order to make me feel better, I’m going to quickly run through a list of things I wanted to talk about here but didn’t. It’s not definitive or complete, but it hits the main […]

Amazing Spring Weather

The weather over the past five days has been unbelievable! Living in Northeast Pennsylvania all of my life, I’ve grown accustomed to overcast winters and hazy summers; rarely does the weather deliver bright, sunny, cloudless days. I honestly don’t remember the last time we’ve had blue skies for five days in a row. When I […]

Sour Skittles Suck

It really surprised me just how disgustingly sour Sour Skittles happen to taste. I like a lot of sour candies like Warheads and Sour Patch Kids and I love Skittles so I thought that I’d also like Sour Skittles—the best of both worlds. But unfortunately, they’re disgusting. I ate half a pack and threw the […]

Dolphins and a Locksmith

Over the weekend, I drove to Baltimore to visit Annie for the weekend. It had only been a week since I had last seen her, but it seemed like a few weeks had passed. On Friday, Annie and I went with Veronica to visit the Aquarium and then to the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner. […]

Holiday Recap

Well, I’m back in Scranton after the whirlwind of holiday festivities that was my Christmas break. I meant to post several times to cover each little event, but time is rarely on my side. However, Annie and I managed—somehow, I’m still amazed by it—to do all of our Christmas shopping within 36 hours, much of […]

I’m Still Here

I felt a strong need to write something, anything at all, so I don’t have to look at a two-month-old post as the most recent entry. I’d really like to do some fun stuff with this page, but it’s going to have to wait until the weekend. I won’t promise anything, but I think you’ll […]

It’s Been a While

I’m really starting to wonder, “Where does the time go?” Even though I’m not working, per se, I can’t seem to find the time to get anything accomplished. I’m taking little chips out of my List of Things to Do whenever I get the chance, but the things I do finish are replaced by new […]

Caffeinated Fun with Food and Drugs

I followed an interesting remaindered link from Kottke.org to a page that discloses the caffeine content of everyday foods and drugs. It’s interesting to see that one dose of Excedrin has more caffeine in it than a single dose of regular-strength No-Doz. That really wasn’t that surprising to me, since I knew that caffeine has […]

All in a Day’s Digital Work

I’m proud of the work I’ve done in the past twenty-four hours. I updated the Scranton Student, updated this rinky-dink blog, posted a whole slew of new side links that have been clogging up my Favorites, helped name a chameleon, unpacked all of my suitcases, and did some online shopping. Granted, my work’s been mostly […]

I Have an Excused Absence

I can’t believe that it has been almost a month since I last posted. Quite a bit has happened since then, which makes me regret not having much time to write down my thoughts and observations during that period. As you probably guessed from my last post, the Scranton Student has been taking up a […]
