Peppers & Me.

I just want to jot down a couple kind of interesting notes about my pepper plants.  I tried a couple different things this year, and I'm excited to not forget for next year. First: I overwintered about 5 pepper plants from last year in my classroom. Two of them died,...

Traffic Patterns.

I'm just curious to how city traffic engineers can sleep at night.  I'm serious; I don't even understand. Are there special, unknown streets specifically designated for traffic planners? Like the kinds of roads that are surely empty at any given hour, free from...

Blissed Out

Well, it was a rather epic birthday week with Justin. The whole week was great, really, but I don't have photos to back up the other instances of greatness. To quickly summarize, we were able to get out to Connecticut to see Eggie (for her birthday), Darian, and Aivar...

Veganing Out of Doors, Day 3

Previously on The Veganing.... No big surprise: we had the same breakfast today as we did the day before yesterday, except instead of buckwheat, we used potatoes. This version is our standard breakfast burrito, and this raised bar is pretty tough to beat (though the...

Mere Christianity

A Christian friend of mine loaned me her copy of this book, Mere Christianity, by CS Lewis, so this post will be the surrogate to marginalia, since the book a) is not mine and b) has tiny margins. I thought at first that I would just handwrite on sticky notes, but I...
