Step one to a New Geek – Love Letters

December 31, 2013 Leave a comment

love letterUnknown to my wife, tonight starts a new me.  And to let her know about my planned changes, I wrote her a love letter.  An honest to goodness on printed paper letter.  Now for some this would be a foreign concept, and I will admit, the last letter I wrote that wasn’t an email was thank you letters after my wedding six years ago.  But as I started writing it, it just felt right.  In todays time it is too often about the quick messages, the tweets the IM’s and the facebook posts.  It isn’t that I don’t communicate with my wife, but there is something about writing a letter that shows that you are not just talking to her, but you are spending time on her.  My goal is one a week.  I know I won’t always get one a week, but some weeks she might get two.  Step one to a new geek, Spending deliberate time to show her how I feel…

New Year, New Geek

December 30, 2013 Leave a comment

New YearsI know I have said this many years past, but this year I mean it.  This is the year I plan to finally try to get my life in shape, both physically and in a greater sense if the words.  As most people do, I am planing on getting into better shape, and improve my relationships with my family and the greater community.  And I plan to do it all here in the eyes of the internet.  My goal for now will be once a week to update this blog with where I stand in my goals.  Keeping it short for this post, but we will see what the year has in store…

Being a Geek Dad

June 10, 2011 Leave a comment

A site I read daily, Topless Robot, recently ran a contest for your greatest nerd fear.  The more I thought about it, the more one thing kept coming into my head.  I am scared my daughter and my unborn child wont share any of the passions that made me the person I am today.  And the more I think about it, the more the thought scares the crap out of me.  The thought of just being a geek dad can be a scary thing.

Can a Geek truly be organized?

February 2, 2011 Leave a comment

Its middle of winter now, and it’s been just over a month since the new years resolution to organize the house and lose weight.  I realize that’s the same resolution that I have made year after year and never do anyone of them.  Recently I have started to wonder if my geek nature is to blame for this failure to clean up.  Its not that I am opposed to work or even change, but the more I think of it, the simple idea of cleaning my house and losing weight just don’t fit with my outlook of life.

This is the song that doesnt end...

I must admit to the fact that I play various Zynga games.  I know that it’s really just some evil mastermind corporation that tricks people into paying money in order to get benefits like certain items or achievements, but somehow, despite logically knowing that the games have no purpose and no end, I continue playing.  Why?

I can haz keyboard

Usually whenever I am wanting to be on the computer, I always seem to have a little buddy.  Sometimes it’s the cat, a lovable ball of fur who loves to cuddle right in my lap.  Sometimes it’s the baby, a lovable bundle of energy who loves to cuddle right in my lap.  However, when you pit the two of them against each other…

FDA makes you smoke more

The best we can do

I’m so glad that I pay good tax money in order to fund truly effective programs.  The latest waste of our money by the FDA just makes no sense.  For a government agency with a total budget of over 4 billion dollars and a budget for  programs to prevent smoking that’s over 600 million, they could at least bother to look at the facts that something they are funding just doesn’t work.
