Of Apartments, Work, and Beer

Here I am, typing away in our cute little office, with our newly hung woodcut of Frank Zappa hanging on the wall to my left and the cat all bread-loafed on top of the printer. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is on the TV -- I can see and hear it just fine from here. I really love our apartment. It's just big enough -- we have plenty of room... Read more →

I feel like I'm in a Verizon ad, only with far fewer followers behind me. But what the heck, it's another new toy.
