the incident

what’s next?

May 17, 2010

The other day my mom wrote on my Facebook wall, asking “What’s next for the ambitious procrastinator?” My answer was that I was living up to the tagline, but I don’t think that’s actually the case.

how to send an email without a computer

February 11, 2010

I’ll admit, this may be a bit of a cop-out post because I have tweaked some things on here and I need to post something to see what will happen… So, I share.  This never fails to crack me up.   I figure you, my ((very?)few) readers, might get a chuckle out of it as […]

standing out in public in your underpants

February 10, 2010

That’s how my friend (and now fellow blogger) Lisa said it feels when you make your first post.  Putting it all out for everyone to see.  She let me try it out by posting on her blog, so I guess this isn’t really my “first” post… but hell, I hope you’re smart enough to understand […]
