More things - OTD: An Affliction
I enjoyed the Seven Things meme so much, I’ve decided to continue sharing my oddities with all of you. You all know about OCD. I’ll probably do a “More things” post about my as-of-yet-undiagnosed OCD at some point in the future, but tonight I’m here to talk to you about something different, yet similar. I have OTD. Obsessive Twitter Disorder. OTD is an affliction. The...
Q: What am I doing with my life? A: Nothing nearly as satisfying as this. I’m not creating anything and it’s tearing me apart.
On Twitter and Community (oh, and unicorndogs)
An excerpt. Read the whole thing; it’s fantastic. luckyshirt: I started using twitter the way most of us did: I floated around for awhile and started following people with similar interests or senses of humor. Even in this passive mode Twitter began to demonstrate its usefulness. I wasn’t just learning what people had to say about their day, I was learning at some level what it was like...

He is solely responsible for getting me into good music, inspiring and teaching me to play guitar, and taking me to my first concert. I was 15 in 1995 and just a sophomore in high school. By this point in my life he had already ignited my love for music and guitar; I was in a band and I was writing songs, but I had...
More things - Ketchup cups
I enjoyed the Seven Things meme so much, I’ve decided to continue sharing my oddities with all of you. They’ll probably come one at a time instead of all together. So, for today, I give you: I never use the top ketchup cup. You know when you go to a fast food place and they’ve got those giant ketchup pumps that are always empty - and there’s those giant towers of...
Romans considered odd numbers to be lucky and even numbers unlucky.– Wikipedia: Roman Calendar I was researching why September, October, November, and December were our 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th months respectively, when seemingly they should be 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th based on their roots words of Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec.

Seven Things (you [probably] don't know about me)
I was tagged by @Jessabelle2o7 and indirectly by @zolora (who tagged, um, everyone in general). So here it goes. This turned out longer than expected… here are (roughly) seven things you don’t know about me. 1) I have been 100% sober for 29 years. That’s right, my entire life. I’ve never had more than a sip of beer; my dad probably gave me a taste of whisky when I was...
They can't all be funny.
Life has become frustrating. I need something to look forward to.
merlin: “Most Days (2009-01-04)” from Most Days I don’t really know what this is yet, but it’s something I’m doing. At least for a week, anyhow.
