Late to the Quarantine Party

For the last couple of weeks, as the rest of the United States has slowed to a crawl and been systematically shutting down, I've continued being in the world. Calm down, it's not because I'm being irresponsible and saying screw social distancing. It's because my job has been deemed essential. Because mental health doesn't really … Continue reading Late to the Quarantine Party

Cupcakes and Rainbows

Tuesday evening I was having a hard time coming up with something to blog about. I'm sticking with that whole blogging every day thing for as long as I can. I've still got a streak going and I just don't want to break it unless I absolutely have no choice. So I took to the … Continue reading Cupcakes and Rainbows

Pi Day

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the first 100 digits of π... 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679 At least, that's what the internet told me.

On the one hand, you have conservative leaders underplaying the coronavirus pandemic, warning that the media is feeding into an unnecessary panic. On … Continue reading Nobody in Authority Is Actually Helping

A Dream About the Moon

So... I had another weird dream again... This time, it was about as close to a lucid dream as I think I've ever experienced. You know what lucid dreaming is, right? If I understand correctly, it's basically where you are aware of your dream and can control what's going on. I imagine it's like being … Continue reading A Dream About the Moon

Stuff to Do in Roanoke

I recently had a client complain to me that there's just nothing to do in our city. And it's a complaint that I remember hearing a lot when I was a kid. Growing up around here, I think I even made that complaint from time to time because I'm certain I eventually took things for … Continue reading Stuff to Do in Roanoke

This Is 40

In honor of today being my 40th birthday, I thought I'd take a look at some other people and things that are turning the big 4-0. There's no one famous who shares my specific birthday, unlike my mother who likes to claim that Vanna White is her twin sister. Well, no one famous according to … Continue reading This Is 40
