I so want to just voraciously devour a peanut butter sandwich right now. It’s 2:30am. Right now, though, I cannot.

Doom is 20

The best computer game of all time turned two decades old today. Yep. The big two oh. Doom is still played and modded by a large, still-thriving community, and it is still as fun as it was when it was uploaded to the university of Wisconsin’s FTP server and distributed worldwide.

You may have already …

Word of the day: half a dozen

half a dozen Numeral Pronunciation: /hɑːf ə dʌzən/ Half of twelve (12), i.e. six (6). Let’s talk about this phrase for a moment. It is wrong. Just… wrong. Okay?

Bad hair year – one year later

This post is the epic sequel to my first post about my hair since landing in Australia. My hair is long. I think that’s a safe assumption to make. The intensity of my twiddling habit has actually declined, although every now and then I’ll run a finger or two through my majestic locks and find …
