It's the final day of April and, as you're about to find out, I've had an abysmal month in terms of getting goals done. I will try harder next month. I swear!

"I'm a 34-year-old NBA center. I'm black. And I'm gay."
I honor of my milestone 30,000th Tweet last night, I bring you another Snippet Wednesday Twitterized to 140 characters or less per Snippet.
For those of you accustomed to my longwindedness, you know what a challenge this might be.
I saw a post over on Kimbot's blog this morning about taking pride in your job and your work and if you've ever felt that way.
Last week I had something happen at work and the role I played in the response was something I took extreme pride in. It was the best I'd ever felt about my job and my role in it. I felt like a major player in a big event.
Since I signed up for the Urban Warrior Dash in June, I've been trying to take my training seriously. Sure, I'm only doing a Couch-to-10K app on my iPhone, but I am trying to be good about it by running at least three times a week. And I've been sticking to it for a few weeks now by doing as much of my running as I can during my lunch break.
I have no words for this...
Grab your umbrella, slicker, and big honkin' galoshes... it's a rainy Snippet Wednesday.
And it is like serious NOAA weather alert rain. Four of them so far tonight.
Several years ago, I promised my grandma that there are some words I would avoid using on my blog. She believes that I'm better than using those words.
Nano, please don't read this post. I don't want you to be disappointed in me for what I'm about to say.
As someone who is only a casual runner but is currently entering organized running events, the happenings in Boston today are just horrific and terrifying and leave me wondering how and why anything like this could possibly happen.
My thoughts and prayers go out to those who lost their lives, those who were injured, and those who bore witness to the terror as well as affected friends and family.
Sick and wrong... the lot of it.
Be strong, Boston and all those affected. Just be strong.
Yeah, that's about what it sounds like in the blogging world these days. Oh well, on to Snippet Wednesday!
Remember the days before music was primarily consumed in digital format? Back when you visited record stores and department stores and purchased vinyl, 8-tracks, cassettes, CDs, and mini-discs from your favorite bands?
Well, I never purchased 8-tracks, but I did buy music in the other formats.
Sometimes you just get sick of all the clutter and all the crap.
Sometimes a life change necessitates it.
Whatever the case, a good "spring cleaning" (even if it's not done in the spring) is a very good thing.
When I was five years old, my parents moved us from New York to Lexington, Kentucky. On one of my first days there, a kid down the street came up to meet me. His name was Steve and, for the next five years, we became nearly inseparable.
Steve was a ridiculously talented illustrator for a five year old. He could draw up a storm and I was in awe. I did everything I could to try to be like him and fashioned myself into a bit of drawing fool.
Ho hey! Welcome to another Snippet Wednesday!
Last year, my plan was to announce that Katie was pregnant on April Fool's Day and see who, if anyone, actually bought it. Just as I was about to pull the trigger, Katie and I decided we weren't quite ready to announce and it would've been in pretty bad taste anyway. I'm noticing this as I read all kinds of fake pregnancy announcements all over Twitter and Facebook today.
