Out of time…

March 27, 2018
I wrote about our cat, Kooshie, here and here. In that second "here" I mentioned how we scheduled Kooshie's euthanasia appointment, but canceled after he started looking like he still had some life left in him. Unfortunately, Kooshie got worse again... Last week we noticed he was not so good on h...

  • If you could bring back one person and have a conversation with them, who would it be?
    March 25, 2018
    This is a good one... There are so many people that have passed on that I would love to speak to again. And for different reasons. I'd love to speak to my maternal grandmother again. She was a huge influence on my family and she passed away when I was 13. She was only 69.…

  • My favorite food growing up
    March 17, 2018
    This is probably why Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Not only was it an opportunity to see my extended family, but it was also the holiday that my aunt made her spectacular mushroom soup. It is not an easy recipe and took time, but she knew I loved it and made it basically…

  • If you could change one choice you made in your life, what would it be?
    March 7, 2018
    I try to live a no-regrets kind of life, so I'm struggling to think of a choice I made that I would change. Like when I was having trouble cutting it as a computer science major in college and changed my major to communications. I still ended up writing computer software in the end, so…

  • Weekend update…
    March 5, 2018
    I've got a lot going on lately. I figured maybe if I write it all out here I can make sense of it and start thinking of how to properly prioritize. It's also after midnight so really what I'm doing is procrastinating when I should be going to bed. I have work in the morning.…

  • If you could create a character in your favorite book or film story, what would you be? What would you do?
    February 28, 2018
    I am not thinking about this one really hard, but my first thought is to be one of the characters on HBO's Silicon Valley. I don't see myself really contributing to the plot, being an amazing engineer, or anything like that. I just see myself being involved and dating Monica Hall (Amanda Crew). T...

  • What cause would you be an activist for?
    February 20, 2018
    This one didn't take a lot of thought. I've always stated that the environment is the single most important issue. Yes, there are many many important issues, but if we don't have a healthy planet (well, healthy for us), nothing else really matters. The fact that this is such a debated issue is lu...

  • Do you believe in soulmates?
    February 12, 2018
    The simple answer: No. I'm not a spiritual person. I honestly do not care about such things and they hold very little value in my life. I find marvel and beauty in the natural world -- and it's pretty damn magical -- but it is still science and there is an explanation. Magic, god, destiny…

  • Odd lucid dream that says something about the current political climate…
    February 10, 2018
    I haven't been sleeping well lately, but when I DO sleep I remember my dreams quite clearly. For anyone that's a Republican, sorry-not-sorry in advance. I had a dream about a fair or carnival run by the Republican congress. There was FREE pizza involved. I got 2 slices plus 2 soda (probably Coke,...

  • No sleep till…
    February 6, 2018
    I'm going on about 2 weeks of subpar sleep. I wrote about our cat, Kooshie who we almost euthanized a couple weeks ago, and I happened to mention in that post another one our other cats: Gizmo. Gizmo is a piece of work... to put it lightly. First of all, I can say with ZERO…
