I like clever resolutions to stupid problems. Case in point, the other day at work, we were engaging in the timeless argument about the proper pronunciation of the file extension .gif.
Today, Katie and I hit 16 years of marriage. 16 years. We've been married as long as it takes to breed a new driver (in the United States; not sure about elsewhere). This is pretty unbelievable to me.
I’m about to head in to see the Kingsman: The Golden Circle but didn’t want to leave you hanging without a blog post. So how about a Snippet featuring a bunch of cool things I’ve been watching on YouTube recently? You down?
I need to apologize to my readers out there. I realize there are some issues with how my blog renders when you check it out. Trust me, I do. Whether that is when you actually visit my blog in your browser (hopefully very few issues with this), or in your feed aggregator/reader like Feedly or The Old Reader (more common), or in emailed notifications (do any of you actually do this?).
Sadly, in this day and age of digital and streaming media, the days of physical media seem numbered. And, yet, I find myself craving physical more and more often.
Yay! I’m so glad to have had not only a handful of guesses this past week on Macro Monday but also to have two people guess it correctly. That’s good news.
Oh, Amazon, you devious little bastages! First, it was One-Click Ordering where you only needed to click a single button to begin the ordering process. Sure there were still a couple steps after that, but it was still pretty simple overall.
We took part in our next door neighbors’ annual Soup Off Challenge today. It was our first time participating and also the first time we really hung out with our neighbors. It was a lot of fun.
I hate when I feel like I’m the last person to find out about something. This happened to me yesterday when a co-worker introduced me to a new functionality within Gmail. Not so bad at first. Then I looked up more information online and found an article dating back to 2005.
Remember oh-so-many years ago when Oprah Winfrey stood behind Book-of-the-Month-Club awardee James Frey when his book A Million Little Pieces was proven to not be as non-fiction as originally purported?
I’m horrified and sickened about Las Vegas.
I started work an hour early this morning.
Another Macro Monday with few to no guesses? Now I'm feeling really sad. Maybe logos just aren't as much fun.
Every single day, I am dumbstruck by our federal government and the depths to which certain members are willing to plunge.
This is the last cassette Walkman I ever owned. It is the Sony Sport WM-SXF10.
Woo hoo! Check me out! My first weekday step goal attainment since Friday, August 11!
I always really loved this photo I snapped of a sunset over the I-88 tollway. It was a wallpaper on my old work computer.
A week or so ago, Katie bought me a little poly bag Star Wars LEGO set for my desk at work. It's a tiny little thing, which is ideal given my small workspace, but it's really cool. It's the First Order Heavy Assault Walker (30497-1), or The Last Jedi re-envisioning of a classic saga vehicle, in this case, the AT-AT.
I don't expect you to know, but "apagar" is Spanish for "to turn off," as in powering down something such as lights or a TV...
Yanno something? I don't think anyone even bothered to guess on last week's logo edition of Macro Monday. What a bummer. I even thought it was kinda easy. Oh well.
Remember how gung-ho I was about War for the Planet of the Apes' release more than two months ago? Well, I finally saw it tonight on the big screen.
It was a weird music day for me today. I was wrapping up a new paint job in our master bathroom and decided to take a listen to the new album Concrete and Gold by Foo Fighters.
What fresh hell hit Chicagoland today?
I thought it might be interesting to post my first photos on Flickr and Instagram as a Throwback Thursday this week. Why not, right?
Remember a while back when I asked if #YonduOnTerra could be my new #StorminNorman? Well, I took one giant leap towards legitimizing it. I made a new blog.
By way of celebration of his actual birthday, how about a photo recap of Nathan's previous year?
I was really worried about last week's Macro Monday challenge photo. I literally had someone guess it correctly within a minute of posting. But then no one else got it.
I'm just going to make it simple and give you a bunch of photos from our day.
I did something last night I told myself I wasn't going to do. I had convinced myself I didn't want to do. I saw the remade version of It in theaters.
Canon (/'kanen') - noun - a collection or list of sacred books accepted as genuine
It should be obvious where this Throwback Thursday was taken... el Gran Cañon!
As much as I used to dominate in step challenges in the past, this has not been the case so much lately. Despite rolling back my daily step goal by 2,000 steps, I'm not even making that regularly.
Sometimes, predictive text can be a source of utter frustration. Other times, it can be a font of unending humor.
I did get an alcoholic beverage guess from Marty, but not the right one. But he was still closest.
This is my favorite kind of weekend.
