Storytellers

I’ve always been fascinated with the concept of storytellers and how they’ve evolved over time.   I’ve been a heavy reader since first grade when I taught myself the basics.  I never really learned how to sound out words, I’d point to words and get someone to say them and I learned to recognize the shape …

No hiring post, but neat tech

I managed to re-sprain my ankle to some degree this weekend during the Spartan run so I’m less than happy. The trip wasn’t a total wash; I got to play with some alpha tech from work and broadcast a buncha podcasts from everywhere along the way.   If you’re bored give it a listen!

Memories

So tomorrow closes out my first week living in the Bay Area- coincidentally enough my cable is hooked up, furniture delivered, and my first delivery of groceries also hit tomorrow.

A Moving Story, Part 3

Part 1 of the story is here. Part 2 of the story is here. So the stage was set. Steak? Check. Booze? Check. Friends? Check. Lots of shit needing to be unpacked? Check.

A Moving Story, Part 2

Part 1 of the story is here. Part 3 of the story is here. Apparently Destiny didn’t put up much of a fight or the colander on Jeff’s head had some extra-ordinary properties that gave him an edge in battle. +1 vs one of the Endless? Either way we ended up being doomed to pack …
