31 Aug

…and with that little snippet from Flashback 95.6, I proudly, and with only a hint of shame, announce the fact that this afternoon, I completed Grand Theft Auto III. Yes, you read that right…THREE. This actually marks the end of an era, really. I’ve owned the game (which came out in 2001) for over five […]

Friday Random Fourteen – “small crack in my cynicism ” edition

29 Aug

Fourteen because I felt like it, and possibly because I was a little distracted from the historical significance, and well, the sheer awesomeness of the speech (here’s video if you don’t feel like reading) last night.

recognizing that I’m never right on these things*

21 Aug

Senator Obama and Governer Kaine are doing an event this morning at John Tyler Community College; a small campus within a few minutes of my house. I won’t be home, but Colleen and the kids are planning on scoping out the area with some strategic lunch plans about the time said event lets out (which […]

I really don’t have much of anything to share with the world today, though it’s been a couple of days since I posted anything (other than a few tweets), so, here’s something. After last week’s constant “run the kid to camp every day” activities, which, among other things, proved that even a six year old […]
