I've heard of crashes after excessive drug, alcohol, or caffeine intake. Heck, I personally endured a monster caffeine crash when working at Starbucks one summer as a barista. But can you have a crash after a big project is done?

The source of all my stress these last few months -- and what I blame for my constant headaches, occasional stomach cramps, random other flu-like symptoms, and my inability to make my step goal pretty much at all this past month -- may actually be done.
Do you remember a couple months ago when I introduced you to the Serial Reader app? Go ahead, click the link. I'll wait.
I'm not sure why, but this television season seemed far quicker than any in the past.
Way way way too easy.
I feel I owe you all an explanation as to why my daily postings are so erratic.
Many times, I like to check stuff out on eBay and follow it to see at what price some things sell. I don't know why I do it since, in most cases, I would never consider buying the items anyway. But I just like to watch. I'm weird, I know.
All of the people in Katie's family that have died. My college friend who died. All the continual infections that Katie has had and her deviated septum diagnosis. All the celebrities that have died including Bowie, Lemmy, Alan, Chyna, Milt, Doris, Merle, Garry, Maurice, George, Harper, and Glenn.
For some reason, this didn't post yesterday. I really don't know why. I guess it's possible it may double post at some point. Whatever.
To cop (ha-ha, see what I did there?) a line from Sergeant Roger Murtaugh in Lethal Weapon, "I'm getting too old for this s&!t." Or, more appropriately, I'm just getting old.
A couple weeks ago, Marty blogged about live performance recordings. I couldn't participate much in the comments because I'd never been much for recordings of live concerts.
Only one person got the correct answer to last week's challenge photo.
Today, a woman named Leslie Geissler Munger became one of my favorite people in the entirety of the State of Illinois.
Today, Katie and I went out to test drive some new cars for her. As her car will be 16 years old in July, it's time.
Out of curiosity, how often do you, as users of social media, re-assess your friends lists?
This was posted just a few minutes ago to Facebook by one of Katie's dozens of cousins (I'm a poet!)
It's been a good week or so of teasers for films coming out this winter holiday season.
300 stars to maintain my Gold Card status with the revised Starbucks Rewards Program? At a rate of two stars for every dollar spent?
It was a little confusing and some people were almost there with last week's Macro Monday challenge photo, but only a couple of Facebook friends actually got it.
I've seen people push for this on the web and social media in the past, but they never push hard enough. So I'm going to try one more time...
I was awaiting permission to announce this, but, as of last Wednesday really early in the flippin' morning, Katie and I became aunt and uncle to a new niece!
Poor Nathan and Katie. On Thursday, all three of us were under the weather. Today, Katie was well enough to return to work but Nathan couldn't go to daycare so he and I stayed home.
I found some photos of old tech (and the boxes they were contained in) while browsing the really old stuff in my Flickr account.
For Easter, Nathan received a little LEGO sports car.
I pray you don't actually need a reminder that today is the holiest of holies. At least for this geek.
Clearly I went way too easy on y'all last week.
Only about a week late, but I watched the season two finale of Disney XD's excellent Star Wars Rebels.
Let's see how March went on the goals front, shall we?
You'd think that the ridiculous field of potential candidates that unearthed itself back in 2015 would be enough to convince us that the Republican Party has "jumped the shark," as it were.
