Day 365: this is it

The last day.  The final piece of this year-long puzzle.  The coup de grace.  My 26th year of life. In some ways, this was an ordeal.  There were days when I had to actively remember that I had a blog post to write and stumble to my computer, fighting off sleep, only to stare at […]

Day 364: birthday burger

Thereís only one day left until my birthday.  And the week that leads up to my birthday is great. Why?  Because, as an avid joiner of restaurant mailing lists and ďe-clubs,Ē I get inundated with coupons and free meals or portions of meals from many different restaurants the week before the big day arrives. It […]

Day 363: barf’n’poop

As we approach the end of this year-long experiment, I feel like these entries should be important and well-written. But we all know that’s not really going to happen. Our cats are saucy little minxes. One will occasionally just barf around the house. Why does she do this? We’re not sure. It’s not an everyday […]

Day 362: mail demons

Aside from the occasional package from Amazon or magazine, most of the postal mail we get nowadays is trash. Itís coupons weíll never use, ads for local businesses we throw away without ever looking at, and credit card offers that I donít even bother opening anymore.  I suppose this has kind of always been the […]

Day 361: google ad

I was watching the Super Bowl today, not really rooting for one team in particular (although I have some allegiance to the Colts simply because theyíre an AFC team).  And watching the commercials, of course. I find some of them amusing (I just canít get enough of that eTrade baby!), some of them dumb (how […]

Day 360: labor

There are these videos that we watch in the prenatal classes that we go to, which are full of slimy newborns, milk-filled breasts, and the faces of women in labor. After a while, you kind of get used to most of it and I think it’s certainly acclimated me to what to expect (at least […]

Day 359: what snowstorm?

I remember when weather was something I experienced, and not just something I read about on the Internet. Itís odd to see something like this and then walk outside into crisp 57 degree weather. Most of my life, Iím used to living in regions that experience winter as a brutal force of nature, where freezing […]

Day 358: happy birthday, sims

Today, our studio celebrated the 10th anniversary of The Sims. The first Sims game was released 10 years ago today.  Since then, there have been two sequels (one of which I had the honor of working on), with both the original game and Sims 2 having dozens of expansion and stuff pack. But what a […]

Day 357: more lost stuff

It’s the day after, and it’s hard watching TV when it’s actually on TV. Am I really going to have to wait 6 days to watch the next episode of Lost? So, let’s get down to business. Hints of the Other Timeline: Let’s assume that the two timelines are both real and co-exist. This season […]
