SXSW-bound

SXSW-bound

Soon, I’ll be heading north to Austin to participate in the frothy music-orgy that is SXSW. I’ve been mentally preparing myself to face the hordes of hipsters — more than the usual that I face during my trips to Austin. In addition to the dealing with my personal terror of going to all the same … Continue reading

Things from the Internets, 3/2

Things from the Internets, 3/2

Here’s some leftover internet crap I had lying around and don’t need anymore. Enjoy! – Baby Yoga… it’s not as soothing as you think it’d be. Actually, it’s quite terrifying. – Homemade hot dogs being eaten by a cat wearing a hot dog costume. Wardrobe change halfway through because that’s how you stay classy. – … Continue reading

Meeting Parental Expectations

Meeting Parental Expectations

Last weekend, I was fortunate enough to sneak my way into a fancy meal at new San Antonio restaurant Bliss. Luckily, I was able to trick myself into thinking I was independently wealthy, allowing me to enjoy the meal instead of thinking “HOLY SHIT THIS IS COSTING ME *HOW* MUCH?!?” (The brain is a stupid … Continue reading

On Internet Validation

Personal validation – it’s an important thing. As much as you may like to say that you aren’t affected by what people think, you really are. Oh sure, keep your mask of indifference on in public, but you can go ahead and nod your head yes while reading this post privately, with maybe one single … Continue reading

Why Do I Keep Doing This To Myself

Why Do I Keep Doing This To Myself

So far, it’s been a regular day, wrapping up with some grocery shopping. Everything was going well until I started walking to my car… and I saw Her. She gave me that fake smile and I knew it was all over — something was going down. They’re nothing but little monsters. They wait until you’re … Continue reading

Lies I Told Myself At Lunch Today

Lies I Told Myself At Lunch Today

– Pre-meal chips and salsa don’t count as food or calories, because they’re before the meal. When the real food goes into my belly, it wipes away any trace of the food before it, like a squeegee. Therefore, the nutritional content (or lack thereof) of an appetizer is a non-issue. – It’s ok if I … Continue reading

Nigerian Princes and the Comedy Therein

Since the CES hoopla started this week, I have grown weary of the “tech” category in my RSS reader with tons of repeat articles on all the same technology and have moved on to other categories in which to nest my idling mind. Yesterday, I quickly settled into my “it’s funny” category and started browsing … Continue reading

Resolutions 2012

Resolutions 2012

My 2012 Resolutions: 1. No. None. New Year Resolutions — people make them every year, making their lists then trying really hard at losing weight, eating healthier, drinking less, spending less money, then generally forgetting that it was all a thing by March. So, why even do it? I’m not saying that you shouldn’t try … Continue reading

One Year*

Today is the first day of the rest of your lives… and I mean actual countable days – 364 to be exact. As you may or may not know, the world is going to end on December 21, 2012. On that fateful day, the Mayans are going to get us. Yes. GET. US. It’s normal … Continue reading
