What Do I Want To Do Today? Master Debate

Story time, y’all:

When I was in high school, I joined the Debate Team.  Our school didn’t have any funds for the team so we couldn’t afford the briefs that we knew the other schools were using for that year’s topic of Russia. Bonus, my partner, Fishboy – yes, that’s what I really called him, and I joined the team about two weeks before the actual meet. Considering that we were already in a ton of other activities and total nerds who liked homework, we didn’t have a lot of time to research.

Needless to say, we were woefully unprepared.

What Do I Want To Do Today? Indulge In Old School Star Trek

While I was putting everything together to ship out my second sale, I was watching old episodes of Star Trek, Big Willie (Shatner) Style.

What Do I Want To Do Today? Find Out Napoleon’s Real Height

This past Sunday I hosted a movie night at my house.

Since we’re such fancy-pants elitists we watched Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure (in 3D, y’all, cause I have a hoighty-toighty TV).

I had never seen the movie before.

What Do I Want To Do Today? Get Festive

I’m getting ready for my brother-in-law’s wedding festivities this week/weekend (congrats, Neil and Tania!), so I’ll be on hiatus this week.

Still sniffling?  It’s ok. I promise I’ll bring back some pictures for you to see.

 

What Do I Want To Do Today? Prepare For the SOPA Strike

This is just a quick note to anyone who may read this. (you know, all four of you.  Readership has gone up, woot!)

In preparation for the SOPA strike, I’m going to set up my blog to redirect on January 18th.  If all goes well (i.e. if I’m not a dumbass and am able to set up the redirect correctly), then by coming here it will send you to the SOPA strike page.

Just wanted to let everyone know that my blog will be going black that day in protest of SOPA.  If you want to get some ideas on how to make your voice heard against SOPA and PIPA, check out my previous post on the subject.

In the meantime… release the hounds!
