Music Monday – Simon and Garfunkel, For Mom

My mom missed the boat by two days. She was almost a leapday baby. She could be a teenager right now. Tough! Okay, two days and one year. But still, mom, what kind of example is that? You couldn’t have just gestated a little longer? No wonder I suck at being patient. Today is her […]

Eaters, Of A Certain Variety

A few weekends ago, I decided to make fried chicken, the way my momma didn’t taught me. I thought it would be a nice compliment to mashed potatoes and creamed spinach, and I thought the girls might actually eat it. Did I mention that I’ve been stockpiling Chik-Fil-A sauce? Cooking with the girls is tricky, […]

Music Monday – Shearwater

Good morning! Happy Presidents Day, or as I like to call it, “The Holiday Time Forgot”. Every year people start to get excited in the middle of February and I can’t ever figure out why. Then I try to schedule a meeting on Monday and someone says, in the most obnoxious voice you’ve ever heard, […]

Bookish Update – Rebel With A Cause

Holy Dang you guys, I could be in a lot of trouble. If the Library calls you, don’t tell them where I am! I have three overdue books right now, but the website is showing my fine at .50, so that’s pretty cool. I’m returning them tomorrow! I’m not sure why I’m so terrible! Okay, […]

Ballet

The talk all night had been Abigail’s first Ballet class, which would occur at 10am. We woke up, as we always do, before seven in the morning. I made coffee, the way a robot on an assembly line makes a car, and shortly thereafter made pancakes (scratch), eggs (scratch (I know, so fancy)) and sausage […]

Music Monday – Remedial Love Edition

Hello. Today is February 13th. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. I’ve learned a lot about love in the last 10 years. I’ve learned some about what it is, and some of what it isn’t. I’ve done well, and failed, I’ve made good decisions and bad, I’ve had noble intentions and no intentions. A decade ago, I […]

Another Bookish Update

This post didn’t occur Sunday, when it should have, because I didn’t want to write it. I still don’t, but whatever. Oh well. I’m 2 books behind! Yay! Things I’ve learned in the first month of Reading 100 Books in a Year: If I can do this, anyone can I have a full time job, […]

Music Monday – Cloud Nothings

I am compelled to blog, by alliteration. No one asked for Music Monday to become an institution, but it’s so damn catchy. This week, I’m really digging an album called “Attack on Memory” by Cloud Nothings. I’m not about reviews or “Liking good music”, if you need the lowdown you can go to pitchfork, or, […]

Ballerina

If you need any proof that I’m a father, this should suffice: I attend a mens group and I recently had to speak in front of the group, to tell them something about myself, who I am, my life. It was free form, and completely improvised. I told a story about Abigail, and about poop. […]
