May 22, 2016: The Disney Springs Update

I’m a little surprised to find myself saying this, but I think I actually really like the recent updates to Disney Springs with opening of the Town Center section of the big expansions. Granted, I probably won’t shop at most of the shops, but I also recognize that they’re not really for me, and for the out…

May 21, 2016: Writer’s Guilt

I’ve written about this before, but one of my big worries as a writer has always been that I’m honestly not very well read. At least not when it comes to the literary greats like Twain and Hemingway and Vonnegut and Salinger… I am at the very least proficient in the complete works of Adams and Barry if that…

May 20, 2016: YouTube -> Plex

Now I should probably preface this entire post by stating that I can’t necessarily vouch for the legality of doing this, so if that’s the type of thing that you like to be concerned about in this digital wild wild west that we know as The Internet, then take notice… 😉 Tonight I discovered this awesome tool that…

May 19, 2016: Flyin’ High, Super FX-Style

On a whim after actually getting my humor column for this week done not only on-time, but in fact early, I decided to dust off the old Super Nintendo and splurge on a video game that I haven’t played in god knows how long – Star Fox! I still remember getting this game when it first got released for…

May 13, 2016: #TeamCap ‘Til the End

So tonight was the big night – when I finally got to watch Captain America: Civil War … a whopping one week after it came out, and … I’m not really sure how much I liked it… I mean, there were definitely some cool moments – the battle scene at the airport that was featured in the trailer, along with a…

May 11, 2016: Hot and Bubbly

(photo from a regular, old bathtime earlier this week because I totally forgot to take pictures in the hot tub … in the dark) Tonight I took Christopher in the hot tub, which apparently is actually a pretty controversial thing – to take a toddler, or roughly anyone under the age of 35, into the jacuzzi – but he…

May 10, 2016: Oracle … Grrrrr!

I yearn for a development environment that just works together. No competing technologies and conflicting software that doesn’t like to play well with one another, and no hours upon hours wasted fighting configurations before I can even start the work that I’m supposed to be working on all this time!!! So in other words, the opposite of how I’ve spent the better…

May 9, 2016: Surrender

Mommy’s alright, daddy’s alright, they just seem a little weird… Tonight I stayed up late watching the 2016 induction ceremony for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on HBO. I can’t say that I was ever really a huge fan of any of the inductees – Steve Miller, Chicago, Cheap Trick, NWA, and Deep Purple….

May 8, 2016: Super Mom

My wife is pretty swell at this whole motherhood thing, and not just because if it was the man who was required to give birth in order to have children, well, let’s just say that this house would have a whole lot less talking animal toys scattered across its floors than it happens to have today! 😯 So today we set aside the…

May 7, 2016: Happy Birthday, Isaac!

Any day that feeds me cupcakes and pizza is typically deemed to be a pretty good day, but this particular Saturday found itself to be extra special because it also just so happened to be my nephew Isaac’s first birthday!!! It isn’t often that a kid gets to celebrate his first birthday, and for the record I think…

May 6, 2016: Family Therapy

Today was a real poop of a day. Like, one of those days when you’d prefer to just crawl back into bed and wake up on Saturday, but you can’t because … responsibilities and stuff. So I’ve been in a pretty lousy mood as I’ve done my best to coast through the day and not upset…

May 5, 2016: Broken Glass

I don’t know what it is – this is seriously the second glass that I’ve broken this week! 😯 Maybe it’s somebody’s way of saying that I need to lay off the dishes for a little while, or perhaps just slow down in general. Too bad, because I actually really liked these glasses, too … even though the little divot in the bottom…
