The Procrastination Conundrum

I have found that the quickest way to get me to do something I’ve wanted to do but have been putting off for a while is to give me something else that I absolutely have to do, but I really don’t want to do. Example: I’ve been meaning to organize, reduce, and clean up my ...

It Never Rains In Southern California

Photos from my trip to D.C. last week are finally up on Flickr, divided into two sets, and thus two slideshows for your time-killing and/or general perusal. My set of wandering around D.C. with Jill, with quite a bit of stuff from my trip to the Air and Space Museum: Get the flash player here: ...

To The Gentleman In The Vehicle Next To Mine As I Was Departing The Bar This Evening 1
