Craftsman Table Saw


If I haven’t already made this clear in previous posts, I’m not a rich man. I never have been though someday I hope to be more comfortable with my finances than I am now. Because of this, I sometimes need to be creative when I’m looking to get something new. I don’t think the things […]

Garage Drainage Tile

Blog, Home, Outside

If you don’t live in Wisconsin and/or haven’t heard about it on the news, then let me tell you that we’ve been hit with a lot of rain this year. There was a stretch of a few weeks where a good part of everyone’s commute was flooded in some way, shape or form. I was […]

Updating the Mantle

Sometimes projects take a while to complete. Sometimes, the simpler the project the longer it takes because you overthink the solution to the point of freezing on any sort of action. Sometimes, you learn a little bit of something about yourself along the way.¬† Want to know what I learned about myself along the way? […]

Encasing the HVAC

Basement, Blog, Home, Woodworking

As Ellie and I speed up on our project of finishing the basement of our house, we’ve broken the process down into bite-sized chunks to help us keep moving forward. The small projects were written in the order they need to be done, so we don’t end up getting ahead of ourselves. While writing out […]

Workshop Air Cleaner

Basement, Blog, Home, Woodworking

I make a lot of things, but the thing I’m best at making is a mess. The mess can usually be justified, by me, because I have a fairly good memory of where things are in the shop. However, I don’t live alone so I need to keep a cleaner shop in order to not […]

Doodling the life away


I just wrote that I am doodling away my summer. Now, while that is far from the truth because I am doing far more than doodling this summer, it wold be great if it was true. Much less stress if I could draw, maybe sleep and eat. It is currently two weeks into my summer […]

Le fabuleux destin


I think today might have made me the happiest I have ever felt, in relation to my comics. I only overheard something about them and that was all I needed. On a different note, why couldn’t Amelie do things directly? Why did everything have to be so creatively roundabout? Granted the movie wouldn’t have been […]

Rest in peace


Goodbye freedom that is summer break. We had a good run, but now it is time that I give you up. Its odd to think that that previous statement is more or less true, partially because I am only a single week in to my summer vacation. But, sadly, it is true. Tuesday I return […]

School has been blown to pieces


Exams are done. School is out. I am moved back to the parents house for the summer. Should be napping and relaxing and reading, but I may be more busy than while I was still at school. I suppose now I need to start thinking about my plans for the summer and trying to work […]

Departure, delayed


I just moved back home for the summer yesterday. Still working on unpacking. I know I haven’t written much lately and it goes against one of my previous¬†posts. When I get a chance, hopefully tonight, I will be back with a bigger update. If not, feel free to load my inbox and the comments with […]

I’ve just seen a face


Do you ever feel like you met someone too late? Someone you have known for a while, but never gotten around to talking to and getting to know until the moment that it may matter no more? I have. I think I am going to make it matter, you never know the kind of person […]

Comics in book form


Time to write the weekend post. I know it is early, do not hate me. I will not be around this weekend, so I must get it out of the way now, while I sit at work. Finals are almost upon me, I wonder if it would be a better idea to write and ink […]

A little Marvel and DC


I should be sleeping. I did something today that I have been meaning to do for a long time. I went out and bought comic books. Comic books in the sense of a graphic novel (I have owned Calvin and Hobbes comic books and Foxtrot and the like). It feels weird. I made sure I […]

Pitcher has a big butt


With the past week or two I finally modified my comment script to ignore all of the comments with no text. This made it so I have far less to delete all the time. But now I just get random gibberish comments, as though a baby was walking on the keyboard. I am tempted to […]

I believe I forgot to add post this weekend in the middle of the night. I was busy. I am sorry. It was an enjoyable weekend, so it makes up for the fact, right? I am glad the weather is back to being habitable. I am not a cold weather person. I will take hot […]
