Disturbing Revelation

When TV shows go away during the summer, I’m usually forced to go through my movie collection or I have to finally watch all the previously recorded stuff on my DVR that I never got around to watching, e.g. the fourteen episodes of The Best of the Joy of Painting with Bob Ross. Seriously, that […]

Year One of Not Owning a Microwave

Prognosticator of Prognosticators

Hallo everybody! I know I disappeared there for a little while. Right after my last post, life got kuh-razy and all the posts I had planned fell to the wayside. I do apologize. I was experiencing one of those major life changes that just sucks you into its vortex and there is nothing you can […]
