Back to Monday! Although the urgency of only having six days to guess clearly didn’t motivate any correct guesses. Booger.
I am so confused by the weather right now. We’re still getting 80+°F temperatures here in Chicagoland… in the freaking middle of October!
It’s here! It’s here! It’s finally effin’ here! Our couch! Our couch!! (with apologies to Roy Kent Nation).
I almost titled this post "Snippets 2021.01" because I thought it had been so long since I wrote one that this was going to be my first of the year. In October. Yikes! But, even so, given how I used to do these weekly (remember "Snippet Wednesday" anyone?), the fact that this is only my third such post of the year is pretty amazing.
Hey, look! It’s Macro Monday… on a Tuesday… again. I was wondering why no one had taken a guess. Then I realized I forgot to post it. D’oh!
It always amazes me how that old maxim “the more things change, the more they stay the same” remains true pretty much no matter what. The latest example?
Here are some more fun little tidbits I've gleaned recently to file under Today I Learned!
Hey, so the reading was a bust this past month. I think I did pretty decently on my goals otherwise. Check it!
Well… I’ve made progress on my list of books for the month. I mean, I did read a couple of them, but life happens, right?
After catching my nearly 100th viewing of Hidden Figures last night on TV (that's a movie I can watch from any point at any time in any mood and love it), I had a hankering to listen to some tunes today from Ms. Janelle Monáe (Mary Jackson in Hidden Figures). I've always loved her music and knew her as a musician for many years before she made her first foray into acting.
My friend @storywrtr won last week’s #minimoviepostermonday with Baby Driver! If you need a good heist film, this is it. Thank me later.
Aw man, I totally forgot to mention that this past Monday marked the 20 year anniversary of Katie and I deciding to move to Geneva, IL, and live in sin in our first apartment.
Back when I was changing jobs, I was contacted by a training and professional development agency asking if I would be interested in taking courses to improve my marketability to potential employers. I hesitantly said yes because I've received requests like this before from some pretty dodgy characters.
Nathan asked an interesting question as we tuned in to the latest episode of Marvel’s What If…
Stacey piped up with the correct answer to last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday over on FB.
I don’t know how it happened so quickly but, as of about an hour ago, Nathan is now nine years old!
If you've read my blog at all, you know I'm a fan of the Matt Fraction and David Aja Hawkeye comics. Heck, I've read the first half of the series three times and finally finished the entire series a few months ago. They're not perfect comics, but they're pretty damned good.
Nathan had an orthodontist consultation. This is the first of two consultations we have scheduled to deal with a tooth that has refused to come loose for a couple years. better to have two opinions and the consults are free.
It looks as though Steve B is the little Starfighter who could with his guess on last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday challenge photo.
It's been 20 years since the terrorist attacks on New York City, the Pentagon, and Pennsylvania. Acts so deplorable that they should have steeled our resolve, brought us together, united us as one nation.
I guess I'm actually going to do this... I'm going to watch all that's available in terms of content pertaining to The Matrix in advance of the theatrical release of The Matrix Resurrections.
The trailer for the long-awaited fourth film in the Matrix franchise -- The Matrix Resurrections -- dropped today.
Happy Labor Day! Now go pack away all your white clothes! Oh and it was Steve of clan Bellock that guessed last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday first and correctest with Vegas Vacation.
This was one of those moments where I wish I had cameras mounted to my car taking pictures in all directions at all times so I could've captured an image of this thing I saw the other day that was just too amazing for words and I had no time or ability to grab my phone and snap a shot myself.
It’s just been a summer of mixed-bag goal achievement, hasn’t it?
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! That’s my reaction to questions about how I did on my monthly Libroqueue challenge.
Ed. Note - I had this all set up and ready to go last night, but apparently never published it or the challenge photo. So I'm backposting this one to the proper day as today is a totally different scheduled post. So then...
I had a big post written up about new TV shows coming out this fall that I was really looking forward to watching.
I don't get much of a chance to use my MacBook Pro these days. Most of my time is spent on the MacBook Air I have for work. So my MBP sits in a stack of computers on top of my desk just chomping at the bit to be used.
Bear with me on this weird little game of Six Degrees of Separation: Nathan Style, will ya?
It’s my old buddy, Stephen H (@gundarkhunter), who chimes in with the only correct guess in what I swore would be an easily guessed #MiniMoviePosterMonday.
Ohmigod. I am so freaking furious with Apple right now and it all has to do with their stupid Emergency S.O.S. settings on iOS.
I dunno how many of you are full-time remote workers or temporary remotes during the pandemic or have already returned to an office or maybe you never left.
Do you remember me mentioning during my whiny writer’s block post about how I want to “just make it to this coming Wednesday”? Curious why?
I love when government agencies aren't on the same page internally.
