This Place

To you: I post few and far between.  I may never post more than that.  This blog has a strange name that even I don’t fully understand, but it made me laugh at the time, so it’s still there.  I try to divide things into categories: I’ll talk about books, personal stuff, history, Fridays.  But […]

Blogs I Read

First and foremost, Blogs Written by My Friends: A Prairie Populist: Josh writes topical posts on Minnesota writers, history, and — for a fun twist — bioethics.  He also once sent me the following text: “Paul Giamatti is behind me and I think I’m going to cry.” That’s why we’re friends. Keep Your Feet: Amelia […]

Liebster

A few days ago, Nora left a comment telling me that she had nominated me for a Liebster Award.  The Liebster is an award that bloggers give to other bloggers, specifically to new bloggers or bloggers writing small blogs.  The best thing about the award, besides the fact that it encourages blogosphere camaraderie, is that there’s a […]

Poetry for Saturday

Last NoBloPoMo post.  Last one.  In honor of surviving the month, of posting every single day for thirty days, I’m going to write one last poetry post.  And then you won’t hear from me for three weeks as I regenerate my currently exhausted store of post ideas via repeated watchings of “Alaska State Troopers.” I’m […]

Second interview of the week complete.  This one was a Skype interview, which meant that I could do jumping jacks beforehand to get my blood pumping.  I’ve long wanted to do so before an interview, but it always seemed inappropriate to bust out the calisthenics in the middle of a cubicle maze. In other news, […]

I’m Almost Back

One more big interview to prepare for, and then I’ll be back to writing posts of substance.  I’ll also be back to sleeping my preferred nine hours, going to the gym, giving Ruby due attention, applying deodorant just once a day, and wearing clothes that allow for a full range of motion. Such deprivations are […]

Prompted

I’ve succumbed.  For this post, I’m following prompts.* “Tell us about a blog post you didn’t publish.” Well, first of all, I have good reason for not publishing the posts I don’t publish.  I don’t hold posts back because they’re Pulitzer-worthy.  I hold posts back because they’re boring or overly personal or rude.  So I’m […]

National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo)

I’ve always been an admirer of those who participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  Simultaneously, I’ve always been good at coming up with reasons why I myself cannot participate. I’m in college.  I have, you know, schoolwork.  And schoolwork has to come first. I’m too busy singlehandedly winning Obama the 2012 presidential election. Intramural […]
