Whereon he thought of himself in balance...

I had grand plans for a blog post for tonight, but other things got in the way. Things like the dreaded balancing of our checkbook.

And, considering all the weird stuff going on in our bank account this past month -- such as applied credits, disputed charge paybacks, my first online bill payment, miscashed checks, and God only knows what else -- I'm just so happy that it all balanced out perfectly on the first try that I think I'm going to have a drink.

Or two.

And go to bed.

Gute nacht, peeps!


No! This is just a tribute...

I know that a couple weeks ago, I said I had "an issue" with the recording industry. Do you really think I have just a single issue with them? That would be way too easy.

A brief Twitter convo with @martymankins today reminded me of yet another peeve I have with the music industry. But, this one kinda goes beyond just music and into just about any sort of industry out there.

You're staring at the sun, you're standing in the sea...

It only took me nearly a month, but I finally got off my lazy butt and uploaded the photos taken during our San Francisco trip on my D-SLR. 

Yeah, I know it's bad to be such a slacker considering I'm such a photo freak. But iPhoneography has made me far too dependent on having a web connection built into my camera. Oh well. Maybe my Sony will grow a 3G chip.

There's a fire in the hole...

First of all, a happy Veteran's Day to all of you who have served, currently serve, or know or love someone who has served or died on the line of duty for our country. We wouldn't be who we are without your sacrifice.

And how am I celebrating your sacrifices? My honey-do list, that's how. And it ain't pretty.

If you're easily disgusted, you might not want to click through to the full post. If you're daring, or if you're viewing in a feed reader that doesn't separate between teaser and full post, my apologies.

I have become comfortably numb...

I was out in DeKalb last night for that book signing I mentioned in yesterday's post. I love going to DeKalb since Katie and I spent so much time out there during college and it's also where we met and fell in love. Just a shame she couldn't be with me. She was busy heckling Twilighters. I'll forgive her.

I'm going to use this Snippet Wednesday to discuss some of the things I saw out there. I warn you now that these Snippets are going to be all over the place.
