Calvin Inspired Peanut Butter Dilemma Redux

A while back, I had a peanut butter dilemma. I couldn’t deal with it. I tried and tried to preserve the purity of the top of my peanut butter, and it sunk farther away each time I scooped some out. I didn’t know how to deal with it. So I tried again. And again and each […]

Danny’s Wonut Recipe

This past week, there have been a lot of articles going around talking about the newest rage in food. Where last year it was a cronut, a croissant donut hybrid, this year it’s the wonut. A wonut is a waffle and donut hybrid. When you think about it, and see pictures of it, you start […]

Walking the Cat

Recently, Ellie and I have tried to get out of the apartment as much as possible because the weather has been nicer and we both have cabin fever from the longer Winter than usual in recent years. We try to walk for a bit before dinner when possible, just to stretch the legs. On the […]

Mabel

You know that ever running gag in TV and movies where a family dog dies while the kids are away and the parents deal with and then offhand mention it to their kids at a later date as though it doesn’t really matter? I do, because that shit happens. The Threat My father has always […]

@PutinRF_Eng please come protect me!

Владимир Путин, иди сюда и защитить меня. Я говорю по-русски. Vladimir Putin, come here and protect me. I speak Russian. I’m appealing to you, Mr. Putin, because you’re interested in protecting Russian speakers now and I’m one of them. If it helps my case at all, I learned to speak Russian while I was in Ukraine […]

Little Free Library

Ellie and I were out for a walk yesterday when we came across the Little Free Library near my home and we saw this: In case you cannot read it, the note says: Notice: I put this Little Free Library here to teach my son about sharing and kindness. When you take all of the […]

April Fool’s Treats

This is a rather cruel joke, but one of my coworkers brought April Fool’s treats into work today and left it on the break room table for all to share. In case it’s hard to tell, this was her idea of an April Fool’s Day prank. Brown Es. Brownies. What a terrible person. I wanted […]
