My Day in Tech aka HOLY SHIT

My days are filled with technology that I've come to take for granted: my two bands of wireless internet, streaming movies on Netflix through my Xbox 360, taking video with my cellphone and instantly uploading to Facebook, YouTube or Tumblr. Yawn, I EXPECT that stuff. And if it isn't working, I am pissed off. Today... Continue Reading →

A Drinking Problem

No, I don't have one. Not drinking is my problem. Abstaining from alcohol or not being fully committed to gettin slizzard seems to be less socially acceptable than being a raging alcoholic.  Why is that?

Super Bowl: The Decision

I don't really care about either of the teams. For me the Super Bowl means one thing: the Chili Bowl hosted by my friend KP. Last year the wicked spicy variety was named "The Devil's Taint." Last year I rooted for the Saints because they deserved some goodness after Hurricane Katrina. Also my high school... Continue Reading →
