Everything has been a little off this week. I suspect the full-moon was partially to blame. Or maybe it’s that summer just doesn’t seem to be coming to Seattle this year, and we’re a little upset about it. Or perhaps it’s that every single person I know (myself included) just hasn’t been getting enough sleep…

Forgive me for getting straight to the point on this one. But here’s my shouldn’t-be-at-all-shocking-but-nevertheless-is revelation: First Class is not a right. It is a privilege. Even if you’ve paid full price for the ticket (which most people haven’t), you are still incredibly fortunate to be able to sit in first class. You are able…

Rand and I drove down to Portland a few weeks ago for his birthday. It’s a drive we do often, and one that’s so familiar to me, one that so rarely changes, even our jokes have become recycled. And believe me, the jokes are terrible. When we pass the exit labeled “Toledo / Vader” it…

I tried to figure out where this week went, and then I realized that two days of it were spent in Los Angeles. I’ll be posting about that trip next week, but let’s just say that few things can make a day more surreal than being in Los Angeles. There’s an abundance of face boobs…

Okay, fine – this isn’t exactly a STINK that I need. After all, I don’t need to spend several long hours being interrogated by Homeland Security. And I don’t need to be strip searched, and, most likely, cavity searched as well. Still, these decals are just about the funniest way I’ve seen to make your…

Florida Everywhereist vs. Washington Everywhereist

Since my friend Desiree’s visited a few weeks back, and I’m awaiting an upcoming visit from Christine (the brilliant blogatrix behind this post, and several awesome comments on the site) I’ve been thinking a lot about my life in Florida, and how I’ve changed since then. Don’t worry – this isn’t some sort of soul-searching…

  • The atrium from the restaurant we went to last night seemed to stretch on for miles - an architectural relic that now feels luxuriously wasteful.
  • I mean, any day that starts with these two handsome gents was bound to be a good one.
  • Been two years to the day, and sometimes I still reach for the phone or an envelope, forgetting that you aren't here anymore. I know that fatherhood wasn't your thing, and kids certainly weren't, either, but I still think we did pretty okay, Dad. Wherever you are, I hope it's quiet, and peaceful, and completely devoid of cheerful idiots who want to make smalltalk.
  • Train time. He leaned in and told me he liked me so much, which is good because I keep trying to eat his face.
  • Super honored to have spoken today at @hubspotlife. Was I completely incoherent and jet lagged? Yes. Did I sweat through my shirt, leaving noticeable pit stains? Yes. Did I talk about said pit stains? Sigh. Of course. But the crowd was super welcoming and kind despite my neuroses. Thanks so much to Ashley for making everything run smoothly, Rachel for being a familiar smiling face in the crowd, and everyone who showed up, asked questions, and had me sign a book.
  • This again? Heading to the east coast for a hot minute for some work. Traveling with Casey is like having a tall, shocking polite, excessively cynical child with us.
  • Coolest. Judeo. Christian. Kids. On. The. Block.
  • "Describe your personal style." Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally, duh.
  • There are times when you create amazing things in DnD for an incredibly tiny audience. As I told Rob, the deal almost feels Faustian.
  • When the delays just keep on coming but it's not so bad, really.

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
