When it rains…

…it pours. And it actually did rain today, so how appropriate. No real topic for this entry, just a lot of rambling stuff and nonsense, trying to get things out of my head and on paper. Well, the internet, so...

Life of Brian: Bugs

To be clear: I do not like bugs. I do not hate bugs. I do not fear bugs. I respect bugs. Growing up in the suburbs, they were everywhere. And I’m using “bugs” as the blanket term for all creepy...

home: snow day = chores?

In which I break the habits of a lifetime and use a snow day to do chores… Past Brian is looking at Present Brian today like “What gives, man?” OPM called it, federal offices closed, it’s an official snow day–sort...

home: out with the old

I never do “spring cleaning” in Spring. Usually my efforts at cleaning are fueled by guests coming over, or finally coming out of a depressed episode or because I end up watching a Hoarders marathon and do not want to...

culture: I’m a believer

Look on my vacuum-sealed works, ye mighty, and despair! The exterminator came for the first of two visits yesterday and he could not have been more friendly and professional. Mostly the prep and eradication methods I’d done had helped a...

what I won’t miss: trash

I thought I might have a “what I will miss” entry before another of these, but having taken the day off work to try and get a handle on the clutter and pack some more items, this is really grinding...

moving: what, me worry?

Have I mentioned yet how much I hate this process? Last night I declared a break on packing and enjoyed some television and light house chores. It was a bit impossible not to do a little move-based work; but it...

chores: clean, clean, clean. repeat.

I suppose it’s a good thing that my apartment is barely recognizable. I’m seeing more floor space and more gleaming surfaces than I have in a long time. I make no excuses for it, but being busy and lazy tends...

sci-fi: are you frakkin’ ready?

I am so frakkin’ ready. iTunes is offering Catch the Frak Up! for free download as well as The Face of the Enemy web series that’s designed to fill in the hiatus. I put Catch/Up! on my iPhone this morning...

Every day’s the 4th of July…

Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are! Happy National Coming Out Day everyone. It’s also Navy Day in DC… coincidence? You be the judge. Up too early today, but it’s not really a bad thing. I made it out to...

Brisk and Lazy

That’s pretty much how the weekend has been thus far. My new computer arrived last week, so I set it up on Friday–thinking that trying to do so after happy hour on Thursday would be a bad idea. I’m already...

in DC: the sounds of hot monkey lovin’

I was up early and decided I needed to shift my ass and take a walk through the zoo. When I map it out, it comes to about 3 miles through and back which may not sound like a long...

The weekend… so close!

TGI–freakin–F as they say. I wonder if our brains have evolved to the point where even a short week no longer feels like a short week. Either that or I’ve just been on the move too much between tidying up,...

I don’t give a hoot about what you think

3,739,934 views so far, and I admit that quite a few of those were mine. I already love Weezer, but this video was truly inspired. Metaviral is the only word that really fits, I’m impressed that they were able to...
