I leave this here without comment.  

Love the Way You Think, But I Hate the Way You Act

March 7, 2014 by


This song is all weird metaphors and mellow tuneage. I like it until I start to think about it too much and then I start to read consent issues into the lyrics that are… probably not there? Maybe not there? I don’t know. Overthinking song lyrics rarely gets you anywhere. Now I love to feel […]

Gilligan opens the front door. Me: I have a moderately hilarious problem. Gilligan: Did you lock yourself out of the house? Me: Nooo… See? Keys. (Holds them up.) I dropped my phone in the sink. Gilligan: Ah. Me: And then I was going to put it in some rice. But it turns out we don’t have […]

Do you ever get that feeling where you’re standing around in your own house and you suddenly think, “I live here” and that seems totally weird to you? Or you’re sitting with your feet up and you look down the stretch of your legs and go, “Wow, my legs are really long.” Or your parents […]

Another Reason Programming and Writing are More Similar Than You’d Think

November 4, 2013 by


Once upon a time, for reasons that I could explain but that don’t make a lot of sense now, I learned to code. Not to the point that I could really use it for anything but enough so that I have a functional understanding of the basics of how code works and some of its […]
