90’s Prime

And here we all thought my soccer days were over… I’ve went and joined some friends in an adult soccer league. It is a casual, co-ed league organized by Zog Sports. We play on Sunday evenings on a beautiful turf field with lights on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Our team name is 90’s […]

Sick in My Head

…well, technically the side of my head. That minor ear infection I blogged about in my last post didn’t quite turn out the way anyone expected. The following four days after being prescribed the Amoxicillin and Sour Patch Kids was one of the most painful, uncomfortable and frustrating weekends of my life. I was popping […]

Sour Prescription

Last Sunday my jaw locked up. I had an immense dull pain in my rear molars and jaw. I thought maybe it was a tooth issue, as it felt like what I imagine the roots of your teeth feel like wrapping around your jaw bone (nice visual, eh?) The pain only moved from “dull” to […]

Word Cloud

This is kinda fun. It’s a program that scans the front page of your blog and creates a word cloud of the most common words. The more common the word, the larger it appears in the cloud. I’m pretty happy with mine. It even allows you to edit it, so I got to remove all […]

Grass or Weed

Sorry, this post is not about pot. This past weekend was an exciting time for my neighbors. You see, since Spring, weeds have been growing out of a large woodchipped-covered portion of my front and side yard. Not normal weeds either, but rather tall, thick-trunked, tree-like weeds. Oh, and lots of them too. It was […]

We chose a nice neutral color for the living room, dining room, foyer and hallways. It’s a Ralph Lauren color named Oatmeal and we like it a lot. So now comes the […]

Haiku Reviews!

My complete and utter lack of downtime has left my blogging well all dried up. In order to make ammends, I treat you now to some movie reviews of my recent 2005 DVD rentals, all in the ancient poetic form of Haiku. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) Burton Disappoints. He lost track of the […]

Potty Mouth

You know you’ve got a chemical imbalance when… …you overcome your plumbing-phobia by fixing a toilet in your house, learning about how toilets actually work, and topping it off with a pure enjoyment of the process… All before lunch! Since I can tell already that you’re as excited about this as I am, let me […]

Merriam-Webster’s Medical Dictionary defines ARITHMOMANIA as “a morbid compulsion to count objects”. Webster’s New Millennium Dictionary defines ARITHMOMANIA as “b. compulsive counting”. I have arithmomania and I have had it for as long as I can remember. I’m still unsure if it is a blessing or a curse. Has it gotten better or worse over […]

Through a nasty episode of my arithmomania this morning (I’ll blog about that another day), my brain led me to the realization that I was born a physics genius! That’s right. You see, I was transported back to a typical Saturday morning of my youth. Sitting on the couch, watching an episode of The Dukes […]
