More of the Field Guide to meeting me in person

I cannot abide assumption, tragic misunderstanding, idiotic mistakes, or anything of that sort, especially when they run afoul of me. Be prepared for anything short of me pulling out a knife in that case, especially if I’m already stressed. And don’t you dare say you’re sorry. That could just send me across the line.

An almost three-year-old poem and the by-now-weekly update on Da Blog

Here’s a poem I wrote in Summer 2004: 45 Degrees on Port It is sunny. Several families watch For the cargo to approach. A boat rocks Over the horizon. It is rainy. There will be no sailing today. Far beneath the waters, A school of fish waits For their catch for a change. It is […]

The random, venting, irrelevant to anything post you have to read

There are a lot of things I don’t take well. Imperfection is one of them. Brain-dead idiocy is another. I don’t always react to such things, but if I’m already in a bad mood, I might. Generally speaking, if I lash out about it, it’s usually with a bunch of random finger gestures thrown vigorously […]

Update on the future of Da Blog

Of the three total responses I’ve received, I received two requests for more information on my “grandiose projects”, one of which actually contrasted it to mere coverage of sports, as though covering projects precluded covering sports. Getting grandiose projects is a given no matter which topic gets chosen. It isn’t really a topic in itself, […]

Ranking the Presidential Candidates… not!

I’m not really a political junkie, but I do pay a lot of attention when election season rolls around. We’re just two years away from a unique election cycle, when neither a sitting president nor vice-president will be running for president. As with most of the things I’m intensely interested in, I have a project […]

Sports Watcher for the Weekend of 1/20-21

This is an experiment that, should the topic of Da Blog ultimately fit it (and maybe even if it doesn’t), will become a regular feature every Friday. I’ll hand out my picks for the go-to sports to watch for the weekend. I choose only one game between competing games, and choose as many sports as […]

Well, this is embarassing…

I was going to make a final decision on the topic of Da Blog on Friday (today, as most of you read this), but I’m instituting an extension because I just recently advertised my prior posts on the topic in the “About me” section on the right sidebar, which in turn was because 43 visitors […]

Alone, alone, alone…

You might think someone as abrasive as me wouldn’t last ten seconds with a roommate, and certainly I tried to get a room to myself when I signed up. But Seattle University has a bit of a crunch for space throughout the campus, and no matter how strong a case I might have had, I […]

How much is that team in the window?

This will probably seem completely swerve-y compared to the posts so far, but it could look completely in place compared to what could come later, even if the topic eventually chosen has nothing to do with sports. (Keep commenting on the post below this one!) If your eyes completely glaze over at this stuff, please […]

State of Da Blog moving forward, and a way to affect its history!

I have a few things I’d like to catch up with at this moment. First, the counter. No, there have not been 34 visitors to Da Blog over the last week. I could set it to display the number of unique users, but I think the number of 13 that would appear is a little […]
