Doritos Taco Shell? Yes please.

As some of you may know, Phil and I are both big fans of Doritos. We even own but haven't really done much with it. This might be one of the greatest Doritos related announcements I have heard: Mexican chain restaurant Taco Bell is… more »

This Things I Believe

I have officially run out of things to title blog posts with and am now just digging up obscure Simpsons lines. Hey, it's been almost nine years of witty (and not so witty) blog titles. The well has to dry up at some point. I thought I'd take the… more »

Hello Hello

Yes, I'm aware this is only my third post in 2011. Oh well. Things on my mind: On the D&D front, the group I am DMing (Dungeon Mastering) for has made it a little past the halfway point of the fantastic Reavers of Harkenwold adventure from the… more »

Last Day of My 20's

I am leaving tomorrow morning for Vegas for my 30th birthday. Wow. 30. I'm trying not to make it a big deal, but when I think about 30 years and everything that encompasses, it's hard not to make it a big deal. When I think about all the stuff that… more »

Pitch Black

So yesterday pretty much sucked. I was home sick from work with a pretty bad cold. Around 10:30 the power went out. I then remembered a notice I had received saying there would be power outages between 9 AM Monday and 9 AM Tuesday. I had thought… more »

Stupid Smarch Weather!

Dang, where is 2010 going? Pretty soon it will be 2012 and we will all die in spectacular nonsensical Roland Emmerich fashion. Or something. I finished Deadwood. As much as I prepared myself, knowing it didn't get a proper end, it was still a… more »

This Is Halloween

This was going to be my costume idea but I couldn't find a Reagan mask or a decent prop gun. Mind you, I didn't look all that hard. Maybe next year. But I actually have a really good idea for a group costume for next year so maybe not. It's no Mad… more »
