On my media consumption: Just finished The Sparrow by Maria Doria Russell for book club and it was pretty amazing. Jesuit priests go visit aliens and trouble ensues. If you can think of a more perfect sci-fi concept, please do, and then write that book, and then I’ll read it. But til then, y’all should […]Read More My Media Consumption, Guns, and Pugs
I’ve already posted this story to Facebook, but I figured it was worth repeating here. We got new dogs! Two of them! They are eight year old pug sisters named Sasha and Cookie. The wife is actively trying to find a new name for Sasha (on the right), but I like it so I’ve been […]Read More New Dogs, Who Dis?

Since then we’ve quoted it to (and at) each other relentlessly, we’ve watched the PBS special, we still have Lin Manuel-Miranda’s […]Read More Bourbon and Blogging: And Peggy
On the new job: I still like it a lot. But it is weird being the one in charge. At my last job, at the end of the day, if a student couldn’t pass a test or he didn’t show up to class consistently, I could leave it all at work. Not my circus, not […]Read More Bourbon and Blogging
