My name is Peter, and this is my Diary, back from internet limbo. I'm going on 42, divorced and with a few kids that I am super proud of. I'm a writer, so entries will be fast and furious when the fingers are in a mood. I write comic books, novels, and poetry... so there will be no shortage of material here. I have been a member of OD since June of 2000, and am a lifetime member, so I'm glad to be back... and so glad to see OD is back as well.

Catch you on the flip side,

Peter

Ouchtown, Population: me

March 13, 2019
  Last week was very painful. How I managed to get any work done during that time is unbelievable. After the boys went home after their weekend, I was eating some of Ethan's leftover chips while watching the Walking Dead when it happened. Just a single one of those chips broke one of my teet...

  • I will keep trying, but no promises!
    March 1, 2019
    I swear to everyone, I am not intentionally ignoring this site. The last two weeks, I've been sicker than a dog. Jon was so nice to bring over a flu and share it. I'm finally just getting over it, but it wasn't a pleasant experience. I don't get sick that often, but when it happens…

    The Top Ten Movies of 2018
    February 14, 2019
    2018 was a pretty decent movie for film snobs like myself. List below is my list for what I think were the ten best movies of 2018. If a movie you loved isn’t here, it means I haven’t watched it yet or didn’t like it as much as you did. Nothing wrong with that as…

    February 8, 2019
    Man, January is gone! Where the hell did that go? We are already into the Hallmark month of Love, and the year as we know it 2019 is already slipping through our fingers. I love this site, but I am rather sickened by how much I've been neglecting it lately. I want to write more,…

  • Monday School: Atheist Misconceptions
    January 7, 2019
    On this day, that being the first Monday of 2019... I am bringing Monday School back to Open Diary! For those who are new, Monday School is a series that was started by a blogger on Open Diary named AUUB, which was short for Atheist Under Ur Bed, one of the more articulate and coolest…

  • A new year, new goals, and a bitchin’ road trip
    January 6, 2019
    I understand how bad I've been with this Diary, and I feel about it because should appreciate OD more and not take it for granted. I missed the fuck out of it when it was gone, and now I'm being a total slacker now that it's back. I feel like shit about that and intent…

  • No streak lasts forever…
    December 2, 2018
    Joe Dimaggio's streak ended at 56. Cal Ripken Junior's at 2,632. My streak, while significantly less important, ends at 12. As in 12 straight years, but no further. First the first time in 13 years, Nanowrimo ended with the bitter taste of defeat. I didn't cross the finish line for the first time...

    November 12, 2018
    This month's Nano is off to a very slow start. Last year on day twelve I was over 25,ooo words, and this year I'm barely past 4000. I've been struggling with my writing since the stroke, so I knew Nano this year wouldn't come to me as easy as it did to me last year.…

  • It has begun… Nano 2018!
    November 1, 2018
    The the 13th straight year, I am participating in Nanowrimo, which is short for "National Novel Writing Month". I go even shorter than that and just refer to it as Nano. This is the second Nano since OD came back, but this is the first since OD went public. I remember doing updates here while&hel...

  • Websites, my birthday, and Nick Cave
    October 25, 2018
    Thanks to a little bit of hustle, I've managed to get some more work done and catch up a bit. It's also nice to get some extra money too, especially when someone has a birthday coming up this Sunday. With the end of my year at 42 comes to a close, I found the perfect…
