In one of my books, I'm gonna have a snarky lad of Irish descent.There will come a time in this book when he has to impart some wisdom...some deep secret of his past. And in that conversation will be the following passage..."Well of course I've got demons, son. We've all got demons. Every one of us. … Continue reading Blip

Some airlines have the whole 'connecting flights' thing down to a science. A well-oiled machine.Heh. Yeah...no. I can't keep a straight face as I type that. I started to say that Southwest did it right, until I remembered my sprint across Midway last summer trying make my connection as they announced my name on the … Continue reading US Scareways
Oh For The Love Of….
Well...I'm back in New York. And I have to say, I'm no more of a fan of winter travel than I was the last trip out here 3 weeks ago.I did learn a couple of important lessons. If it's important to doing your job, pack it in the bag that stays with you. There's a … Continue reading Oh For The Love Of….
So...funny thing happened to me on the way to work....I realized that I had left my phone at home.It was trippy. I swear I went through the phases of grief and loss. Confusion-...'wait...what?..' Denial...'nah...it's got to be in my bag'. Anger...'shit! I can't believe I left it at home.' Sadness...'damn..how will I send goofy 'happy … Continue reading Tethered
I wonder, as I look at the title of this post, how many hits will be on Google from that Kevin Bacon TV show? If you're here because of that, I'm sorry.I was actually thinking of the 15 or so people that follow this blog when I wrote the title.I know I haven't been writing … Continue reading The Following
Taking a Piss Out of the Nanobots
Nanotech this....Nanobot that.Clearly nanotechnology is going to happen. Hollywood has a history of prepping us and desensitizing us to things that eventually become common place in our society. Nanobots are no exception.So...coupling that with a rare moment of conspiracy theory mania, I came up with a possible trigger for the zombie apocalypse.It starts in public … Continue reading Taking a Piss Out of the Nanobots
Sometimes It’s Not Really Up To Me
So...here's the thing with me and my writing.Not my blogging.My actual writing.I don't really sit down and choose what I'm going to write. For me it happens a bit like this....At some point I'll get a one-liner or story premise. When this hits, I usually write it in one of the many journals strewn throughout … Continue reading Sometimes It’s Not Really Up To Me
F**king Twilight Zone
So...I'm in NY. Finally.The original flight was scheduled to leave Columbus at 3:57. I had planned on getting there about 2:30. Then it got delayed (early on today) to 4:57. No biggie. I'll still keep my 2:30 tee time because weird things happen with weather.And they did. The departure time got moved back to the original … Continue reading F**king Twilight Zone
All Over God’s Green Earth
"I'm looking for a pair of insulated or quilted bib overalls. Carharts or something like them."It seems a simple phrase. I uttered the phrase on my quest at eight different stores today.Eight.Walmart in WestervilleThey had a decent selection about 2 weeks ago. And I even thought I could fit in to the XXL's. Today they … Continue reading All Over God’s Green Earth
Some days I wake up and I don't know where I am. I don't recognize this life I'm living. It's like I'm an amnesia patient watching someone else's life in front of me.Odd way to start the first post of the new year. I suppose I should be putting some list of resolutions or Top … Continue reading Solitary Refinement
