“Have you thought about trying to come in 1st place?” I was driving my aunt to the airport a few weeks ago in Cleveland when the topic of Scrabble came up. I mentioned that in my last tournament I’d finished fourth in my division when she asked if I ever thought about take home first prize. I [...]

“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

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 [...]

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 [...]

I could hardly sleep the night before the big Strawtown adventure. I was like a kid on Christmas Eve. Several people tried to temper my enthusiasm, but I was having none of it. After years of putting it off, I was finally going to get to see bask in the glow of Strawtown’s regal beauty. In addition [...]

Straw Fever

I took a little hiatus from Gnu Glasses for a few months to focus on other things and people have noticed. It feels good to be missed, but I’ve enjoyed the break. Maintaining a blog about one’s life is a double-edged sword. You get to give your readers regular updates on your life, which is fun. However, [...]

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 decided to do something radical last week: I went to a bookstore. Once upon a time this wouldn’t have been a big deal, but it’s easier to find Big Foot than to find a brick and mortar bookstore these days. The popularity of e-books and buying books online have caused most book shops to go the [...]

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 [...]
