“Why are you wearing glasses?” Because they match my shirt I spent the weekend in Cleveland at a family function, when the attention shifted to my non-prescription glasses. As I laid out my explanation, I realized I wouldn’t have to explain the stylish specs to my loyal Gnu Glasses readers. This point was further highlighted today when [...]

Climb Time

rockwall1

I’m about four days into my very first Indiana Stay-cation and it’s been extremely relaxing. Waking up with nothing to do, reading comic books, and watching random TV shows I’ve DVR’ed unwittingly. In a perfect world, I would be travelling around the city and venturing into the nooks and crannies of Indianapolis that I have yet to [...]

  “Seafood Managers don’t die…they just smell like they did.” -Manheart I officially retired from the seafood game this past Friday. According to rumors I’m leaving to pursue a career in the bowels of the popcorn fields of Indiana. While that would be quite an opportunity, it’s not entirely accurate. I will be working in the popcorn [...]

Happy

I woke up early this morning with the intent of putting the final touches on a blog about my latest Scrabble adventure while also editing one of my previous works about the world’ s greatest board game. I achieved the latter before I left for work, but decided not to rush the former. Then a funny thing [...]

It’s been an interesting few weeks at GG. When we last left off, I’d developed a fool proof plan to get my beloved Saints to the Super Bowl. While it worked against the Philadelphia Eagles, the team was unable to overcome the Seattle Seahawks last Saturday. Some naysayers will point to the fact that I switched up [...]

Making it Work

“Did you know that in Bolivia, people celebrate the New Year by wearing bright red underwear?” While many people spent January 1st nursing a hangover, I spent the day doing something slightly more painful: learning obscure facts about global New Years traditions from a coworker. Had I known I’d be learning how Netherlanders ring in the New [...]

My 10 year high school reunion is coming up pretty soon. I probably won’t  go, but it did remind me how strange my four year journey was. Freshman year was spent in New Orleans and was mostly uneventful. The summer before my sophomore year, though, I moved to Chicago. More accurately, I moved to Bolingbrook, Illinois which [...]

I’ve heard it said that the surest signs you’re getting old is that time moves REALLY fast. I must be getting old because I’m looking at my calendar it says August is almost here. It seems like only yesterday I was taking down my Cinco De Mayo decorations.  Since there are only about five months left in [...]

The Decision

Dwight-Howard

I’ve been feeling a little like Dwight Howard lately. Dwight is the former Lakers star who recently decided it was time to pick up and move to a new city. Unlike Dwight, my decision probably won’t get a lot of ESPN coverage, though I wouldn’t turn down an interview request if they asked. Truthfully, I’ve been contemplating [...]

Food Truck Fun

food truck friday

I’ve decided I need to spend more time outside my apartment this summer. While I’ve done a good amount travelling outside of Indiana this year, when I’m not on the road I’ve settled into a routine that’s anything but exciting. A guy can only watch so many Law & Order marathons before he begins to get a [...]
