Aaaaand Thank You

Tho a couple weeks late, I had a wonderful Christmas, scoring big in the receives column as well as getting to spend a whole week with my entire family. Beth and Steve and Seth (see wow above) came and left on consecutive Sundays, and Tony & Kate stayed about the same ...

i wish i was a little bit welder

You might be a redneck if… you learn to weld when you’re as pasty as I. Today my dad taught me to weld. I stuck a bunch of scrap metal together with solid welds and the light from the welder gave my neck a bit of a burn. There ...

Mister Premonition and Miss Mullet

As I pulled back into Manhattan today, finally back from my long & lovely Christmas Break, I started to get nervous — a claustrophobic nervousness like the roads were getting smaller and my car was getting bigger, both at the same time. I took each yield sign extra-cautiously, fearing that some madman ...

zip it up

There’s this thing my Victorinox coat does where the bottom zipper can zip up and still keep the upper part of the coat zipped. I hear it’s so you can have access to your pockets without totally unzipping your coat (especially when you’ve got gloves on and ...

Home Office

I know I reported on this before I left for Christmas Break, but I’m seriously trying to makeover my room to be more conducive to studying this semester. More office, less bedroom. So, letsee:

I’ve added some curtains to the front of my closet which I hoped would ...

Neosho Showoffs

I grew up on the bank of the Neosho River — 18 years of my life within a half mile. My childhood best friend, Allan Comer, and I would often take day-long hiking trips along its rocky bluffs a couple miles upstream. Eventually we’d either run out of daylight or ...

If you ain’t country…

… you’re probably more sober than I.

I went out last night, to a party over on Bluemont, submitting to my lack of socialising lately & the distinct desire to be so.

I made myself a large Cuba Libre and followed that with two equally large Screwdrivers — probably 10 ounces of ...

i just found it rather comical

A couple summers ago when I was home working at B&W and I’d talk to Bryan back in Manhattan, he’d tease me about trying to replace him with other, newer friends. I’d tell him about what I’d been doing with so-and-so and he’d just ...

Not So Scottish

I’m not so brash to actually say anything, but c’mon.

Then again, nope. Didn’t work. Nevermind.

frozen doors and toes

As much as I didn’t hate this cold weather, as apathetic as I have been about it, I’m right pissed off at it right now. And I’m sure my car feels the same.

See: around 5:30 tonight I tried to get into my car to warm ...

colorful culprit

I woke up on Monday morning perplexed at the tickle in my throat — the obvious beginning of a cold. I assumed, of course, it must have had something to do with the temperature dip.

Yesterday I drugged my way through classes with two doses of Dayquil and a pocket full ...

all clammed up

Yippee. With the help of the beneficient Service Director at Baron Volkswagen and a can of deicer, I was able to disassemble my car door, spray some deicer here, there, there, there, and there, and with Bryan pulling and me pulling and holding, we popped the latch back open.

So ...

Dear Westminster Abbey:

I just received an email earlier with the name of the hotel — Westminster Hotel — that I’ll be put up in while I’m visiting London in March. It’s a beautiful row of former Victorian town houses that look out onto a green garden square. Positioned in Bayswater, just ...

snow day

Two days this week, they’ve canceled classes, closed K-State. Monday was closed for good and obvious reasons. Today was less obvious. Sure we got about six inches of extra snow last night (on top of the 12 or so we had gotten in the previous week), but it’s ...

Old Items Notify

This is more of a notice about some changes I’ve been making to the site.

I know a month or so ago I implemented that stupid thing where the exclamation point would show up if I had just added something new (as if you couldn’t see), and another ...

you go out and you do what

A had a good birthday weekend with a fair balance of bars, cigars, and family. Two bars, one cigar, twelve family. I went to Lawrence for the first part of the weekend to go out with some of my friends there. The first night, at the Jet Lag bar, we ...

not a big fan of E*Trade”

I logged into my E*Trade account today for the first time in six months or more. That’s the whole idea behind buy-and-hold, I guess. Except: sometimes things are bad and you just need to know about it.

So I check my holdings, Candies Shoes (CAND) and Save On ...

reshuffle & cut the deck

I haven’t put pictures in any recent posts. I don’t want me looking all sloth-like, I guess. And this has been a good week. It’s been a blur.

I’ve managed to get a ton done, actually. My most significant feat was getting permission to switch sections ...
