birthday present

30 Jun

This weekend, the BBC the premiere date for the new season of Doctor Who. The new series will transmit, with new Doctor Peter Capaldi, on my birthday. Not an awful present, really. I’m looking forward to the new guy; I like the actor, and I like the idea of an older actor in the role […]

The right to bear axes

21 Jun

Some of you out there might be aware of the latest bit of Second Amendment shenanigans out there; these “Open Carry” idiots who decide to “raise awareness” by parading around Target and Chipotle with AR-15s and such slung over their shoulders because the law doesn’t actively prohibit it; you know, those guys so out there […]

Cantor wasn’t particularly good the country, or for his district, and thanks to the results of this election, Mr. Cantor’s ambition of one day becoming Speaker of […]

ouch, but a good ouch

09 Jun

Last week was pretty much the week from hell. Among other things, I was saddled with leading a work project I wasn’t expecting when I came in Monday morning, though I’ve been kicking the project’s ass, and been granted the auspicious (and somewhat questionable) title of Test Commander. Sadly, I haven’t been issued a badge […]

dirty neon

02 Jun

I spent all last week breathing in drywall dust thanks to construction at the office. Thus, I spent most of the weekend sacked out on the couch watching campy 80s movies and cracking the new Dresden (very good so far…you should read it). I’m required to do some actual work this week (both for the […]
