Saviors Of Youtube

Youtube infuriates me.  Sure there are a few really solid channels like ZOMGitsCriss and Thunderf00t, but there’s also a lot of crap.  Maddox explains the problem succinctly. What is the answer to all the non-epic on youtube?  The answer is the best damn cooking show on the internet (sorry My Drunk Kitchen).  The answer is [Read More...]

Adventure Is A Family Tradition

I come from Arkansas, where my parents live quite happily in the secluded house I grew up in.  One morning they looked in the back field and saw a bear.  Now, most people if they see a bear stay inside where it’s nice and safe. Not my parents.  They ran to the edge of the [Read More...]

Today ruled

This day should be enshrined as a holiday for all time. I haven’t done squat today aside from explore my new palace at FtB (bedroom doors work great!), sow around in my PJs and a sweater that’s three sizes too big, watch the Arkansas Razorbacks beat the Texas A&M Aggies in a thriller, rock out [Read More...]

Moving day

It was a pretty short hike over to my new home.  It isn’t so much the distance that discomposes me, but the change of class.  My old blog had cracked tiles, peeling wallpaper, and the bedroom door wouldn’t shut all the way.  Were I not such an ardent skeptic, I may have believed the place [Read More...]

Eliott, the other half, was a basketball player back before the discovery of [Read More...]

Ten years later…

When I got out of work on September 11, 2001, my father called me and told me to remember where I was that day and everything else about it: what I thought, who I talked to, etc., because one day my children would ask me. When I speak to others who were in school that [Read More...]

I am the not-so-proud owner of a Shake Weight

I love working at the SSA.  Jesse Galef, our Communications Director, got me a cane for my birthday.  Today I received a belated gift from our Resource Coordinator, ‘Imperator’ Nick Stancato. I feel buff already.  Sadly, the web site for the Shake Weight is very…what’s the word…fey? Shake Weight® Utilizes New Workout Technology Called Dynamic [Read More...]
