Twisted Reason She Killed Caylee

Her sleep was interrupted by Caylee. Her meals were interrupted by Caylee. Her grooming was interrupted by Caylee. But she didn’t mind Caylee. No, it was wrong to say that she didn’t mind her. It would be more accurate to say that she minder her a lot because of these things, but since she was […]

It was not an apple that Eve ate

Yesterday, I went with the guys for a fish fry. The three of us are all Catholic and we try to observe the practice of not eating meat on Fridays during Lent as a form of fasting. There are quite a few places within walking distance from our apartment that offer some sort of fish […]

The tinman has this problem

I am working on my server currently and I was looking at options of things to install. I came across this message: Maybe Heartbeat is not installed, or your module configuration is incorrect. I hope that there will never be a day when I run into this message and have it truly scare me.

This blog is like…um…a…

My cousin has become quite the compulsive blogger of late. Or rather I found out that she keeps a blog, of late. Either way, I have found some gems while reading through the massive amounts of daily posts she has. This one appealed to me on so many levels that I could not live my […]

How do I even apply

I had nothing to do today at work, or rather little to do. In lieu of finding boring tasks I went about the web searching for a place to go for Grad school. If this shocks you, do not be alarmed because you are not alone. I haven’t really been sure what I am going […]

Sassyhacksaws 2.0

I hope you noticed. I mean seriously, you are here and it is all around you (or rather this). But I redesigned the site. I know I sort of kept it a secret, that is unless you followed my Twitter this past week where I had a bunch of tweets about it. Let me know […]

Private Interview

“Why did you do it John?” “Why did I do what? Why did I try to change the nation? Is that why you are here?” “You know why I am here. And yes, that includes wanting to know why you tried to change the nation. I want to know why you took that upon yourself, […]

1st person narratives of same event

Part 1 – It happened when I was little; I must have been five or six years old at the time. I remember it being warm out, the end of May. It was a nice day outside, the sun with a bright blue sky behind it with a scattering of white fluffy clouds. My mother […]

Norman Agate

“If you will just sign here and the loan for your museum is yours.” “How about that? Just need to write the eleven letters that make up Norman Agate?” Norman replied, wiping the mucus from his nose. “Now I will finally be able to break ground on the future home of Steve and all of […]

The rider

I learned quite a few things between a span of a few hours today and yesterday. I had to return to my parents house this week to get a cavity filled and I could not think of a better way of getting home than riding the 10-speed that I put together. Have I mentioned that […]
