Life, The Universe, and blogging.


I like maintaining this website. I really do. It’s taught me alot about php, html, creative writing, and it provides me a space to practice web design. But with the new house and being much busier at work, I just don’t have the time for projects. Any projects, so this blog has taken a back seat. I’ll try to find a way to keep updating it with news on my projects.

Just don’t hold your breath.

Things I’ve done this week

Life, Randomness

Sometimes it feels like I’m not making any progress on all of the projects in my life. That’s because the way I work I like to chip away at the problems slowly. It’s either that or I’m just constantly distracted, but either way I am making progress on some things.

  1. Put together a website redesign proposal
  2. Completed  a prototype for the illuminated white umbrella wedding decoration concept.
  3. Epoxy and JB welded 10 more skull door knocker parts
  4. Got the pictures for my passport application.
  5. Celebrated Laurel’s new Job
  6. Found our Cheers, John’s place, a local bar.

One of those days….in a good way!

Life, Randomness

Have you ever had one of those days… where everything goes right?

I know, people usually remember the opposites, but I guess the small things make me happy. I didn’t have a whole day, but I did have an amazing little stretch last night. I was meeting Laurel at her work before I went to play basketball with Travis and Nigel. When I turned right out of my street the car almost died because it was almost out of gas. Which happens a lot because there’s not a gas station that’s not located on the opposite side of a long light around me… and I’m a lazy bastard. So anyway the guy behind me almost runs into me because I’m going a little slow and then he gives me the brights… and I proceed to give him the finger… and the slow down… and the eat me… and pretty much just flip out. So this is how my good luck starts, with anger.

I get to the gas station, fill up, then decide to take care of my low air pressure in the tires. After filling those bad boys up I thought, well I still have a minute or so left from the air machine I might as well try to fill up this flat basketball, without using a needle… and a couple seconds later it’s done… I didn’t even know that was possible.. but it is. It’s like I’ve been lied to my entire life… all you have to do is lick the needle hole and then press down flat and hard.  This is a fact that the air needle industry doesn’t want you to know!  So after this little detour I’m a little late so I get going and on the way there I hit 5 or 6 green lights in a row. This includes two times when I was sure I was making a wrong turn only to come out in exactly the right place. So after a quick kiss from Laurel I was out playing basketball in Alexandria. Where I felt good, made a few open jumpers, and shockingly… I can still dunk.

It just surprises me how little it takes to make my day.
