Nanowrimo? I hardly know her!

Nanowrimo? I hardly know her!

I may not be participating in National Novel Writing Month this year. The problem? Same as my previous attempts, I lack a storyline. I have some decent ideas for characters and their backgrounds, but nothing that really ties them together, and certainly nothing that would result in anything reminicient of an epic conclusion. I could […]

So THAT’S what a frozen hand feels like!

So THAT’S what a frozen hand feels like!

Note: despite the title, this entry is not about masturbation. I need to take Cylon down to Charlottesville for his 600 mile tune up this upcoming week, and I figured that riding him at highway speeds might make me a little chilly. I have had previous experience with being chilled on the bike, and I […]

They should have stayed (un)dead

They should have stayed (un)dead

At long last Lady Jaye and I saw George Romero’s Land of the Dead last night. I was looking forward to seeing it in the the theater, and I think it came out around the time of the big layoff at work among other lifechanges, so we didn’t get a chance to see it. I […]

This journal is worthless :sniffle:

This journal is worthless :sniffle:

Well, at least according to this guestimation by Tristan Louis, who analyzed the value of the recent WeblogsInc buyout by AOL for between $20 million and $40 million. Thanks to Stilts for the linkity-link. My blog is worth $0.00.How much is your blog worth? No tags for this post.

New System Review!

New System Review!

Nothing spurs a new hardware build like games. Alexa, Father, Bond, Cleopatra and I are all either playing, or have played, Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft. Wanting to see what the fuss was all about, Lady Jaye innocently asked, “can I see what the game is like?” Muha. MUHA. MUHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHA. Of course, dear. The first […]

Waring Pro WMK300 Waffle Maker

Waring Pro WMK300 Waffle Maker

You know, Lady Jaye thought I was batshit insane when I spent $90 on a waffle maker. We bought it when her family was coming to visit us in Rockville. I wasn’t sure myself if I would use the waffle maker past their trip, but I was enthralled by the stainless steel pseudo industrial grade […]

FIOS, One Street Away From High-Speed Bliss

FIOS, One Street Away From High-Speed Bliss

According to Verizon, they’re installing their fiber to the home on one of the major roads near my house. It’s very possible that I’ll be able to get them to run fiber from the main road to my house, but I don’t know how close I have to be to the main line in order […]

Spyderco Knife Chronicles / Cricket Review

Spyderco Knife Chronicles / Cricket Review

My father taught me some very important things during my childhood: hold doors open for ladies, say “please” and “thank you,” the rules of gun safety, and always have a pocket knife. Thanks to the incredibly stupid security laws enacted after 9-11 I can’t always take Dad’s advice, but for the rest of the time […]

We made a deal; if she’d stop hookin’, I’d stop shooting people.

We made a deal; if she’d stop hookin’, I’d stop shooting people.

We were aiming high. And thus the ends Mel Gibson’s narrative in Payback. Gibson plays the part of Porter, a small-time criminal turned avenger to claim $70,000 owed to him. He gets his money and rides off into the sunset with his former prostitute mistress, Rosie. We’ve had our beagle-hound mix Porter for a year […]
