When I Don’t Know What to Write About

I have a list. Actually... I have several lists. I keep an excel file with several pages full of blog post ideas. I mean, most of them aren't so much ideas as an organized list of when certain posts need to be written and scheduled. For example: one of those spreadsheet pages is nothing but … Continue reading When I Don’t Know What to Write About

Why Are They Called Martians?

No... I get it. They're from the planet Mars, so we call them Martians. That part makes sense. But I have to ask, why is it that in so many science fiction stories the Martians refer to themselves as Martians?

I Can Sell Anything…

Occasionally I'll hit up a fast food drive through here and there. I know, they're not good for me. That's fine. But they sure are convenient. And the preservatives and whatnot that they inject into the food sure does make it tasty and probably slightly addictive. Anyway, this is not about the moral ramifications of … Continue reading I Can Sell Anything…

Ideas

Kids... Sometimes, my heart just isn't in it. I was sitting here. And that's all I was doing. Sitting... My laptop is open. It's on my lap. My hands have been resting on the keyboard. I've been staring at the empty page, thinking about what I want to blog about. And I got nothing. I … Continue reading Ideas

Hard Hat Convention

Driving home around lunchtime yesterday, I came across a sign letting me know that someone was doing some utility work up the road. It wasn't long before I saw where the work was taking place. Except, at first, I didn't see anyone doing any work. I just saw roughly 15 people in hard hats leaning … Continue reading Hard Hat Convention
