My Dad Needs A Blog

31st March 2013

I’ve been trying to get my Dad to start a blog for awhile now.  Or at least guest-post on here. Dad needs to blog for lots of reasons.  The main one being, dude is too verbose for Facebook.  Today, he posted this: 32 years ago today – 31.03.81 @ 12:50 local time in Dallas, Texas – life changed forever. It was the happiest day of my life. After two weeks of very early and difficult labour, my wife and I finally…

Numbers 51-52

28th March 2013

A dear friend just sent me this list of The 50 Most Romantic Things That Ever Happened. Because, y’know, stuff like that makes me melt, these days. Anyway, Sarge walked in as I was scrolling through. ‘I’m going to leave the room while you look at these,’ I said. When I returned, Sarge said, ‘I’d build you a ramp for those 6,000 stairs.

Death at La Fenice – The start of my new favourite series. The Fault in Our Stars – I might have developed a slightly age-inappropriate crush on Augustus Waters. MWF Seeking BFF: My Yearlong Search For A New Best Friend – An exercise in First-World problems.…

Gone Fishin'

18th March 2013

Later today, I’m heading to Skye in a flatbed truck.  Yes, really.  I’ll come back with several blog posts that started out in my journal.  And I’ve also packed my travel notebooks, so stay tuned for lots more words. For now, my previous island escapades can be found here and here. And with that, I promised Sarge I’d shut down the computer.  In exchange for a fully-booked honeymoon by the end of the week.  Sweet deal. Back on Monday the…

The Great Hyphenation

8th March 2013

Yesterday marked 99 days until Sarge and I get married. Not long after I realised we are down to double-digits, I shared the countdown on Facebook, and then I read  this article about changing your last name after marriage. Or not. I saw it on a friend’s wall (as you do) and posted it on mine, with this preamble: ‘I share this as someone who would never drop my last name. Because it’s mine. And I love it. And if…
