Winter’s coming (that’s a thing, right?)

, August 19, 2013

Sure, there might be a month and change left in the summer, technically speaking. But when I woke up this morning, I couldn’t shake the feeling that the days were running out. I’m a big fan of summer, and so far, I’ve had a great one. But there’s always so much I want to do, […]

Pay no attention to those garbled sleepness notes behind the curtain!

, August 7, 2013

If you subscribe to this blog through my feed, then it looks like you just got a very rough version of my previous post. I’ve updated it since, and although I’d like to blame the free app that WordPress created for iPhone bloggers, I might also have to plead a little distracted sleeplessness on my […]

Big difficult day ahead

, August 6, 2013

I’ve mentioned before that one of the things I like about the jet lag you get coming back from the UK is that it basically compels you to get out of bed early. I usually try to maintain an early schedule for as long as I can, and I love the feeling of getting a […]

A great new year on the horizon

, August 1, 2013

A couple of months from today, I’m going to turn thirty-four. It’ll be the first day my thirty-fifth year alive. I feel like making it a great one. Of course, it’s one thing to say that, and another to do it. It doesn’t even make much sense to talk about a “great year” without thinking […]

Maybe not today

, July 31, 2013

My word! I’ve tried to keep up a daily blogging routine while I’ve been in the UK, and I’ve mainly managed to exceed that goal. I’ve even managed to get a good train of thought going, don’t you think? Today, however, a good chunk of work has chased me across the sea, and it’s come […]

Another night in Ottawa

, July 9, 2013

Because of the storm in Toronto yesterday, I wasn’t able to fly back home from Ottawa¬†last night. Instead, I holed up in a hotel near the airport, ordered some pizza, and called it an early night, at least by my standards. If all goes well, I’ll be flying back this morning. I’d ask you to […]

Sleep is a funny thing

, July 4, 2013

On the one hand, I can grab three hours of the stuff, and spend the next day feeling energized and refreshed. On the other hand, I can crash early, sleep as late as possible the next day, and still feel exhausted. Right now, I’ve got a bit of the latter going. Let’s just say this […]

Alec Baldwin returns in “The Hunt for Raging Actor”

, June 28, 2013

Alec Baldwin is missing! The Hollywood star and Twitter icon apparently deleted his account last night after tweeting an angry rant against Daily Mail writer George Stark, who had accused his wife of tweeting during the funeral of James Gandolfini. It’s sad when this sort of thing happens. Alec Baldwin is a talented and charming […]

Phasing it all back in

, June 24, 2013

I’m a guy who likes to try and get a lot done in a day, and a good way to do that is to turn as many jobs as I can into habits. The disadvantage of this is you eventually come to cram your average day with one routine after another. Before long, you’re just […]

Let’s get a little bit lazy

, May 18, 2013

The long weekend is here! And yes, I’m bound to spend a lot of it chasing after a kid who’s just learned to run, but at least I don’t have to go to work. Okay, sure, I took a bunch of work home with me when I left the office yesterday, and I’m going to […]
