QotD: Sports

Question: If you could be a sports star, in which sport would you star? My Answer: Golf, without a doubt. It's an individual sport, and so achievements - and failures - are very individual. It's also a game that lacks the, what shall we call it… rampant indiscretions by players. In other words, it remains […]


It's official: I hate hurricanes. Absolutely freakin' hate 'em. This is just fucking ridiculous. I'll be living on pudding for the next few days, as I imagine my power - and Internet access - will soon be no more. On the plus side, I used Jeanne as an excuse to eat half a gallon of […]

Polling Plugin for MovableType

Okay, let's see if we can't get this thing going: a DropCash campaign for a polling plugin for MovableType. Here are the specifics as discussed here. The polling plugin for MovableType should: integrate with the blog as a standard MovableType entry, allowing for comments and TrackBacks as normal. assume that MySQL and PHP are available […]

The Sand Trap .com

Remember that golf blog I'd mentioned that I was going to start? Well, I've started it. It's called "The Sand Trap" and is available at My remaining design goals, which which Erica Tesla is (supposed to be) helping, are as follows: Menu needs to align in FireFox (looks OK in Safari) Colors could be […]

QotD: Furthest

Question: What's the furthest you've ever hit, thrown, kicked (etc.) anything? My Answer: 330 yards. My scramble team made birdie. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Seth Ellsworth

My friend Seth Ellsworth has got his site online. Seth is a: musician student husband Those three words are all synonyms for "poor." If you like Seth's kind of music, pick up his EP for only $7 and help to put some Rice Krispies in his tummy (a demo track is available). Seth and I […]

QotD: Weddings

Question: What's the most important thing to a successful wedding? My Answer: A planner or someone who knows when to cut the cake, when to do the first dance, and so on. The last wedding I went to was nice, but not very organized. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for […]

QotD: Moving

Question: What do you hate most about moving? My Answer: The expenses can be outrageous: breaking a lease, security deposit on a new lease, money for the moving van… it adds up quickly! You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Mementos

Question: Are you a memento-keeper? My Answer: Not really. I'm a bit of a packrat sometimes, but then I go through massive "cleaning" phases where anything that's not important is trashed. I keep pictures, but things like cards and notes go in the trash if they're not part of the current relationship. You are encouraged […]

DropCash for Polling

Six Apart has heard my request for MT-compatible polling and come up with a possible solution: setting up a DropCash campaign to raise money for polling. I'd like to do so, but first of course we'd need to agree on specifications. My list, off the top of my head, is as follows. The polling plugin […]

Want a Weim?

I'm moving to PA soon (October 10 or so) and in Erie, pets are simply not allowed in apartments or townhouses (not for an extra $300/month). My parents and/or Carey's parents were going to take Flint - my 3-year old Weimaraner - but now they are not. Screwed I am. So my options are thus: […]

Polls for MovableType

Does anyone know of any decent polling software for MovableType? One that can keep track of results (i.e. 43% say this, 35% say this, and 22% say this) and then allow for normal commenting through standard MovableType means? I'd like to get surveys going on that golf blog I'm working on - a weekly survey […]

QotD: Car

Question: Who would you let borrow your car? My Answer: Almost nobody. Carey could borrow my car when she wanted, but that's about it. I've let people drive my car back from the airport after dropping me off, but that's the extent of it. My mom has driven my car as well, and that's OK. […]

Carey Plays Golf

Carey and I played nine holes at Green Meadows today. Green Meadows is the course I first played at when I was 15, and have toured the course in 68 before. It's tough for its length (about 6,000 yards) because the greens are smaller than many people's living rooms, each have a false front, and […]

QotD: Golfing

Question: If you've ever played golf, what was your score your first time out on a regular (not executive) course? My Answer: My first score was 98. I'd beat enough balls with the 7-iron I had in a field to develop a swing that was at least capable of breaking 100. I was also 15, […]
