If Taylor Swift’s curated playlist, on Apple Music, tells me anything, it’s that she and I do not share the same taste in music. I’m headed into the three day weekend having met all of my deadlines on both the work and the school fronts. This means, there is not excuse for me not toContinue reading “3 whole days!”
Something that I have noticed, over the years, is that songs seem to be getting shorter. It’s almost at a point where, for me, if a song is over 3:30 then I feel like it’s going on for too long. This is crazy considering most of my favorite songs (mostly classic rock) are between 4Continue reading “Songs are getting shorter?”
I’m loving the yellow blossoms that are starting to come in. This morning, I raised the light hood (a couple inches) to give them a little more head room, and added plant food.
Godzilla (2014). I was pleasantly surprised by this version. The 1998 abomination left a really bad taste in my mouth for any USA, big-studio remakes of Godzilla. I think it was Bryan Cranston’s performance that made me realize, early on, that this movie would be different. Very different. And I wasn’t disappointed. It’s actually oneContinue reading “King of the Monsters”
I added a 5th set the the queue of Lego sets that I need to put together. I try to only indulge in the sets that really interest me; the ones that really look like they’re going to be released just once and will be hard to find down the line. When I saw thisContinue reading “Another set to the queue”
1. Series Finales I have been getting increasingly frustrated with the way The Big Bang Theory has been written for the past few seasons. It just stopped being funny and felt like the storylines were flat. Like no one was making an effort. This last season has been increasingly irritating because I kept expecting bigContinue reading “Five things for the week”
Looks like I need to do another light pruning soon. Mainly just to clear out the smaller, bottom leaves that aren’t getting any light. I also have a few branches extending out past the light source so, I may train them to come back in
I’d say it has recovered pretty well from the massacre er, pruning that I did a few days back.
The first time that I remember “being a photographer” was on a trip to Alaska, with my grandparents, when I was 12 years old. I had a simple point and shoot (film) camera with me while we drove from Anchorage to Denali (and took a bus tour through a bit of Denali National park) toContinue reading “Back to FUNdamentals”
My wife and I are really excited to see how many dinners we can cook at home, in a row, this week. My goal is to get us through Friday with a dinner out on Saturday. We shall see… Sunday’s dinner was a (cast iron) pan fried NY steak, a steamed artichoke with lemon butter,Continue reading “Current streak: 2”
1. Photography I bought and then returned a Fujifilm XE-3. I thought that the rangefinder-style layout combined with the ability to change lenses, would make for a great everyday carry camera. But, soon after opening the box and setting it up, I realized that wasn’t the case. It’s a great camera, and one that IContinue reading “Five Things for the Week”
“I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.” Mark Twain This blog post, from A Learning A Day, has me thinking about how I work, about my output, and about how I want them both to be.
I need to look into how/when to prune the AeroGarden tomatoes. I feel like now is the time to be doing this. I’m impressed at how much height they have gained since I raised the (roof) lights a couple days ago.
We opted for dinner in, rather than going out for Cinco de Mayo. Our usual tradition is to go to our favorite Mexican restaurant but, since we had been eating out (what felt like) a lot this past week, we thought a dinner at home would be better. So I grilled up some corn andContinue reading “Sheet Pan Nachos”
