Woo-hoo! (New Laptop)

In keeping with my commitment to writing more frequently, I’ve recently purchased a more portable laptop. I bought a Gateway LT2030u. It’s red and weighs about 2.5 or so pounds. It’s tiny! But the keyboard is managable, even with my hands. I bought this one because it came with a 250 GB hard drive, 1…

Nothing to See

Advance warning: This is essentially stream of consciousness writing. It’s unedited. If you become bored with it…well, you’ve been warned. I went out last night and bought my first-ever copy of Writer’s Market. Other than the fact that someone told me to do it, I’m still not sure why. I think it’s because I’d like…

Angst & One Lawyer's Personal Blog

Maintaining a “personal” blog has been an ongoing source of angst for me.  I (mostly) enjoy writing.  I’ve intermittently kept journals for years, although not-so-much in the last 10 years; my journaling these days is spotty, at best, and for reasons similar to those I anguish over regarding maintaining a personal blog.

Happy 51st Birthday To Me

By the time this post is published, I will be less than a few hours away from being more than a half-century old.

Palin’s Portional

A lot of people have expressed puzzlement over Palin’s recent decision to quit the governorship of Alaska.  Rumors swirl about the reason behind her sudden departure.  An article at The Daily Beast proffers 11 reasons, but does not touch on the obvious.  (I would refer you to the actual Daily Beast article, but after noticing…

Reading, Writing & The Absence of Presence

The astute amongst us will note that I have not written for…um…a long time.  Yowser!, has it really been almost three months!  Who’s keeping my calendar, anyway?! Seriously, though, I’ve been busy reading.  And writing.

Beautiful Music from an Angel

This video actually made me cry. I usually only do that when looking the mirror.

What a Wonderful World

Sometimes, with all the hours I put in at work, it’s hard to remember that the world can be a wonderful and interesting place. Sadly, the video that originally appeared here no longer exists. So, enjoy this one, instead: Of course, one thing that always makes the world such a wonderful place is spotting a…

Uke Won't Believe This! (A Twitter Medley)

One of the great things about Twitter is the exposure you get to things you might never find on your own, but which you’re bound to like. Over time, the people you’re following tend to be interested in the same things you are. If you didn’t find them interesting, you’d stop following them. But none…
a joke of a drawing of myself, which looks barely better than if I had done a stick figure for my self-portrait


In my never-ending quest to find an outlet for the expression of my artisticalisticness, I have created my first ever self-portrait, using Photoshop. Yes, I know. But if you could just hold down the applause a little. Your neighbors are trying to sleep.
