Eh Wot?
Round and round we go

Round and round we go

Everyone knows the old quote about those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it right? While the sentiment is close did you know that apparently that isn’t the actual quote?  Thanks to a admittedly slapdash Google search the quote is most likely attributed to writer and philosopher George Santayana. In its original form it read, “Those who …

I am tired

I am tired

Life is behind (as per usual!) but when isn’t it? A new job for me. A new career for Paul. A new household member  (Selena). Our 5 year anniversary together / 2 year wedding anniversary. The good news is we’re settling back into a routine just in time for my 39th birthday.  How the hell …

2017 and what not.

2017 and what not.

I’m typically not a New Year’s resolution kinda guy. I don’t typically wait until a specific time of the year to set my goals and announce them to the world- seems artificially constrictive to me. That being said I do have some goals to set for once and it’s the start of a new year …

A little hiatus

A little hiatus

I started this post right before Halloween but it looks like I never finished it.  So hey! I was gonna do a tiny hiatus 🙂 Hiatus is over! In quick summary of the last two months: – We moved to San Diego. .. Oh I guess that’s it.  I gotta tell ya doing Christmas at …

My Precious

My Precious

Working on photography processing tonight and I look up to see this photo hanging on my wall .. I can honestly say this is one of the top 3 pictures I’ve ever taken.  I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of looking at it.

Not my normal Saturday

Not my normal Saturday

So I spent most of yesterday staring at a computer screen which is definitely not how I prefer to spend my weekends. When you work in technology there’s an understanding that some portion of your nights and weekends you’ll spend ‘practicing’ for your day job.  If you’re in a startup there’s the added fun that …

Where in the world is Mike?

Where in the world is Mike?

Well I’m in San Francisco, obviously.   Or perhaps not so obviously?  We travel around a lot so it can be hard to say where we are on any given Sunday.  Today though?  I’m sitting at my desk, Cat firmly ensconced in my lap with a stunning view of our high rise neighborhood behind my …

Storytellers

Storytellers

I’ve always been fascinated with the concept of storytellers and how they’ve evolved over time.   I’ve been a heavy reader since first grade when I taught myself the basics.  I never really learned how to sound out words, I’d point to words and get someone to say them and I learned to recognize the shape …

I might not agree with myself in a year

I might not agree with myself in a year

But I probably will. If you’ve known me for any length of time, you probably know I’m a big Aisha Tyler fan.  Not literally big; despite what the picture here portrays she’s VERY much taller than me.  Very much.  She crouched down to make me feel better.  The title of my post is a quote from …
