My First Dungeons & Dragons Side Quest

I just had my first Dungeons & Dragons experience. It was fun, but two of us were new and we spent so much time trying to figure out our character sheets that we all barely got a taste of the DM’s story before the evening needed to end. The DM did bravely attempt to hold one side quest, but I don’t think it went at all as he expected. Let me rephrase: it absolutely did not go as he expected. Elves in D&D don’t sleep.… Read More »My First Dungeons & Dragons Side Quest

Reprint: An Afternoon in Mom’s Kitchen

Remember when I said I was planning to bring some of my best Blogger posts over to my new WordPress? No? Well, I did. This is one of my earliest blog posts ever, and one of my most popular ones, originally posted on 12 July 2009. I’ve since learned to cook some things (out of necessity) and have never required a single item on this list, which further proves my point: you seriously do not need this much kitchen stuff. The… Read More »Reprint: An Afternoon in Mom’s Kitchen

A Ramble on the Four School Subjects

I loved school when I was a kid. I enjoyed at least some aspects of it all the way through my college graduation in May 2011. Lately I’ve been pondering the four main categories of subjects: math, English, science, and history. I loved math and English, was less fond of science, and hated history (and “social studies”). All categories have some obvious value, and I’ve been trying to nail down why I liked what I liked. Math was pure. It was so… Read More »A Ramble on the Four School Subjects

News – Writing for Bluewater Creative Group

For the last few months, I’ve been writing for Bluewater Creative Group as a freelancer. I wrote several articles for the December and January issues of their publication Viera Voice, and in February, you’ll be able to see my work in Senior Life and the annual Boomer Guide publication. I’ve also spent time in the office proofing articles and verifying information for the Boomer Guide. I’ll update my portfolio section with clips soon!

Adjö, Volvo

Well, it finally happened. Ed’s Volvo is no more. At least, it is no longer Ed’s, and will likely be scrapped in the near future. Ed and I drove the Volvo up from Florida to Pennsylvania for Christmas. Aside from all the usual problems (aesthetic, mechanical, and otherwise), this was fine. Uneventful. It rode happily enough for the next week in PA, and nothing unusual happened until we went to a LAN party and someone else drove the car to and… Read More »Adjö, Volvo

Merry Christmas!

I decided to make my own Christmas cards this year, and as I was designing it, I decided I preferred the way half-page cards looked. I also did not have access to a paper cutter, and the printer I was going to be using could not do borderless printing. This meant I spent a lot of time fighting the paper with a blade and a straightedge. I did manage to turn out some decent Christmas cards, and I wanted to share… Read More »Merry Christmas!
