Those that know me, in the “real” world, know that I love making mead. I enjoy experimenting with all kinds of flavor combinations and will even attempt batches that can only truly be described as esoteric. I bottle every batch that I make, and doing so requires a frequent replenishment of supplies. These supplies range […]
Forgive, Forget, Repeat.
In the midst of the cool, dark, volatile, and unending sea, I was your island. I was the sun warmed sand that cradled your shivering form. I was the shade from the leaf canopy that gave shelter from the burning rays of the sun. I was the dependable earth, upon which you could rest your head, […]
The Fundamentals of Magic, and Marketing.
Shazaam! Abracadabra! Boom! Or whatever catchphrase modern illusionists and magicians use to bolster the impact of their dramatic reveal, or as is the case in many tricks, removal. These utterances refer to magic, not the fantasy kind, with long-bearded, staff-wielding, octogenarians projecting fire from their hands, and mentally coercing bears to fight for them; but […]
You Write Something With Substance If You Don’t Like It
Everyday, most hours, and often into the night, we are surrounded by other people. We are neighbors whose lawns share an invisible, yet, dividing line. We are two panes of glass and eight feet apart as we crawl through traffic. We bump shoulders as I enter a store and you brush past with your […]
Not that the idea has been neglected in the past, but recently zombies have been quite the topic. I assume the pulsing light from the thought box that has arrested the minds of the masses has something to contribute to this. I, of course, specifically blame the Walking Dead show. It seems to have created […]
Craft Beer Day(Care) Tripper
At the behest of a most lovely female, an excursion was planned around cupcakes. The impetus being an apparently highly sought after cupcake brand called, Scratch cupcakes, located in Ephrata. The thought of cupcakes, admittedly, doesn’t blow my hair back. Ergo, I sought to bundle this activity with an item of which I have great […]
admittedly I am feeling no strong compulsion to write. Though my failure to write is essentially an admission of a lack of commitment to this blog which I intend to maintain. I’m not sure how long I intend to write such a thing. It currently resembles the doldrums like phase of a relationship. Once the initial […]
Waitress – Solicitous Saint or Salacious Seductress?
A sincere and singularly salubrious thought sears my synapses. What it the real role of the waitress? Reasonably, this is also applicable to the waiter. Though society is less likely to consider the sexualization of said stint. If there were not a degree of seduction involved in the serving process, would it not be more economical […]
Having been recently turned on to WordPorn, (pun absolutely intended) the first word that I am graced with in my Facebook feed is the title of this post. It seems that while Facebook and my browser are tuned in to my shopping habits, offering me new Steve Madden boots and guitar recommendations on every other […]
I go to the barn because I like the
Indirect inspiration for this post, mainly because… We used to pool our meager cash to purchase a few choice hours in an isolated environment. It was a short drive away and in a day sans the prevalence of cell phones might as well have been hours away. Yet, this was a cheap, easy departure from […]
