Yuletide Update

As promised I have ditched dy in favor of The Advend Calendar this month. (Hopefully you have not been following The Advend Calendar and are unaware that I have kind of ditched that as well, although I have been making up lost ground this morning.) Some recent reviews include Oats ‘N Honey Granola Bars, the PureFit Chocolate Brownie Energy Bar,

The Advend Calendar

It's a day late and, after buying the Swedish Fish, I am a dollar short, but the Advend Calendar is live. I'll be shifting my focus to that site until xmas, but will still be posting here occasionally. The Good Gift Game Guide will be published tomorrow, so stay tuned for that.

Better Late?

Last month I told Eden that I would be "participating" in NaBloPoMo, probably leading her to believe that I would be posting on my blog every day in the month of November, which is kind of the mission statement of the whole gig. So far, though, my participation has been mostly of the feeling-vaguely-guilty-about-not-actually-doing-it variety. Anyway, that changes today, and

Projects

My New Year's Resolution for 2009 was to "complete 12 projects". In making the vow, I left "project" largely undefined--pretty much anything that I wanted to do and that would take a fair amount of effort qualified, as far as I was concerned.

Smartypants sending emails like "Please make

Here are some upcoming dates and events that all citizens are required by law to know Layer Tennis: A new season of Layer Tennis kicked off a few weeks ago, if I can mix my sports metaphors, and history suggests that I can. Last year, you may recall, I provided color commentary for the Halloween match. I'll be donning the

Journey of a Thousand Miles

Sorry about the irregular posting schedule around here recently, but National Start! Walking Day was on April 16th and that's been keeping me pretty busy. Speaking of which, if anyone knows when National Stop! Walking Day is, could you let me know? I probably should have checked before I left. Right now I'm about 7 miles outside of Spokane, heading

Up For Air

Hi! Hi! Sorry! I'm still here. Everything is fine. I've just been busy on this thing. And this other thing. Here's the problem in a nutshell: I'm not one of those people who writes because he "needs to," I'm one of the people who writes because, at the end of the day, he likes having written (in the much the
