I’ve been working at the new gig for about a month now and have settled into a nice groove. I’ve made some friends and picked up a new nickname. In a few days, I’ll have my work published in a newspaper for the first time in years. All in all, it’s exciting stuff. However, in the course [...]

 I was going to write a Lent-themed post yesterday about the things I wanted to give up for forty days. I was then going to let my loyal readers decide which one I should pick. For those who are unaware (heathens), Lent starts the day after Mardi Gras and lasts until Easter Sunday. Or the Friday before [...]

 For most people, today is just another Tuesday. However, for me and all my New Orleans friends, it’s Mardi Gras. I don’t get home sick often, but today’s one of those days. New Orleans is one of those towns that takes its partying seriously. Right now in the Crescent City, kids are off from school and most [...]

I took a few weeks off to recover from blisters and mourn the loss of my favorite toenail. A couple weeks of inactivity were followed by a couple months intermittent gym visits and [...]

I’m thinking of retiring from Words with Friends. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the game, but I think it’s not serving its purpose. In theory, Words with friends is a simple game of Scrabble played via Facebook or smart phone. In reality, it gives my friends one more reason to hate me. Words with Friends doesn’t [...]

The Iowa Caucus may be over, but there is still more voting to be done. Devoted followers of Gnu Glasses remember a while back I redesigned the site. As part of the redesign, there is now a Gnu Hall of Fame where I house my favorite post from a given month. So far I have hand-picked each post, [...]

 Over the summer, a classmate invited me to Morty’s, a comedy club in Indianapolis, to watch her perform. She has a full time job but does stand-up on the side. Seeing as how I never turn down invites, I decided to go. Every Wednesday night, the club opens its doors for its “Great Indiana Mic-Off”. It’s an [...]
