The ramblings of a madman

I am lost. I am hurt. I’m confused.

Things are changing and they are changing a lot. The changes aren’t good. The changes aren’t bad. They are unnecessary. I feel like they are unnecessary. I say that because I don’t want them to happen. I don’t want the changes to come.

Challenges. New and bigger things aren’t always welcome or expected. New and bigger things aren’t always better.

Who am I? I need to remember my words. I need to remember my identity.

I am strong. I am smart. I am cunning. I am devious. I am vicious. I am vindictive.

No. That’s not right. Let me try again.

Yet another update post

So…  how’s it going?

That’s good.

I’ve been good. Some things are a little different around here. The girlfriend that I went to visit in my last post (way back in February) parted ways. That was sad and good and stuff, and it’s been a good long while since then.

Six months have been quite a while.

I started working out, joined a gym and hired a trainer. I’ve learned a lot and really enjoy it. I’ve also lost some weight and have gotten stronger, so that’s nice.

Um… what else?

I’ve been making wines all this year. The Black Currant is pretty amazing, and I just made some peach and some plum wines. It’s nice to be able to taste something that you’ve made and aged.

Oh, I sliced my hand open and had to get some stitches. I just got them pulled out yesterday, and my hand feels much better now. It’s still got a lot of healing to do though…

The Destiny beta came and went and I played it. It was pretty amazing and I’m counting down the days until September 9th. That’s a pretty special day this year: Destiny comes out, Captain America 2 comes out, the new iPhone gets announced. All around a good day. I might even take it off of work.

Oh, and I’ve also sort of become a comic book nerd. Or a Marvel nerd. I read the comics for Guardians of the Galaxy before the movie came out, and loved it. I’m currently reading through a huge story arc right now and I’m quite enjoying the Marvel Cosmic universe. And, FYI, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie is amazing – probably one of the best this year.

There’s tons more going on, but I can’t think of anything now.

Nice talkin’ to ya!

New York City

My introduction to New York City was a white-out automated landing. I didn’t see the ground until we were about 50 feet above it. Little did I know, I was on one of the last planes to land at JFK. Blissfully unaware, I wander to my gate, went and found Panda Express and enjoyed some delicious food.

I looked at the display and saw that my flight to Buffalo was canceled. Continue reading

Break Room Board #5: Describe your ideal/perfect sandwich



PB&J – A whole loaf’s worth, made in a batch and stored back in the bread bag. After several hours canoeing, the pb&j will be sufficiently squished, the atoms of all three components uniting on a molecular level. At this point, you pry then pry open the sandwich and insert a healthy layer of Ruffles chips. Consume the whole loaf.

Meat, cheese, pickles, meat, mayo, tomato, bread, mustard

Lots of salami

Oscar Mayer with olives

Peanut butter + Marshmallow

cheeseburger with Gyro meat on top

Grilled ham in a grilled cheese sandwich w/ bread + butter pickles


Hot dogs with Everything (hold the onions)

Filet mignon sliced thin, lobster chunks, $9436.00 (Napkins) cash between french bread

Grilled turkey + cheese

PB+J but only when my mom makes it. Sandwiches made by moms are always better.

Monte Cristo @ Bennigans. If you haven’t had it, you haven’t lived.

[Not in the photo, but was on the board] Grilled steak with green onions + garlic.
