Have you ever seen the photo where somebody took a frozen pizza
that comes with cookies and baked the cookies into the pizza?
I'm the guy who got extremely upset at that photo, mostly because I
didn't think of it first.
Just for fun: INTP. Which means I sit around all day and think

What I’m doing with my life
Recently returned from a six month stint in San Diego, and I can't
express how grateful I am to be back in the bone-chilling cold
where I belong.
Hunting down the next NGO that needs a volunteer manager a.k.a cat

need to be tied, and a good jacket.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I would describe the various stone finishes at The Home Depot
in writing. My current favorite is "a winter sidewalk where the

On a typical Friday night I am
To be fair, that's not different from any of the other six nights
of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
