Your Life is Yours

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by Dogma–which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” — Steve Jobs I’m not sure anything else needs saying. …

Blood Type, a novel by Melissa L. Garrett

Gnorb Life 2 Comments

A good friend of mine, Melissa L. Garrett, just released her latest novel, Blood Type, which you can (and should) pick up at Amazon. Now, before you dismiss this as your standard, run-of the mill, Twilight ripoff, you should know: I have a problem with vampires today. Serious problems. As in I hate most of them. (Vampire: The Masquerade gets a pass. …

If you’ve been following this site for a while (a special thanks to the RSS readers who’ve not dumped me from their stream) you’ll have noticed that I recently started posting again. That’s because I finally feel like there’s something that needs to be said, that I want to share, that others might find useful. My absence, as you’ve no doubt …

White Haired Dude

Lately I’ve been noticing more and more white hairs showing up. At the same time, my hair’s been thinning at an increasing rate. I’m only 30. I’m really not linking this. Yesterday, after discovering a rather long, white hair hanging right at the top of my forehead I decided to take it, along with a few of its buddies scattered …

Failed Experiment

Gnorb Life, Site Updates Leave a Comment

I failed, and that is a good thing. Even better is that I know why: because I forgot what was important.

When I re-launched this site a while back, I planned on writing one weekly post about some sort of memory or history, and maybe other posts about whatever I wanted. The first post would be featured on the front page, while the other posts would be stored away in their own categories, accessible to anyone but promoted only to RSS subscribers, people who follow me on Twitter or who have access to my Facebook page. (Save your Facebook “privacy” jokes.)

Of course, it didn’t turn out that way. With the new format, I suddenly found myself in the position of having to write a great piece in order to justify its positioning in the front page. And that piece had to be about my (or someone else’s) past. There were a few obvious problems, however…

Introducing My New… TOYOTA CAMRY?!

Gnorb Life 5 Comments

Alright, so car shopping went along far faster than originally anticipated. This was due to personal reasons, mostly my mom’s need for a new(ish) car and my ability to provide it. (Also, because I still owe some on my previous car, the trade-in value weighed me down.) The car we ended up with? The 2010 Toyota Camry.

Waiting for Christmas

Gnorb Featured, Life Leave a Comment

Even as recently as last year, we unwrapped Christmas gifts first thing in the morning. As we’ve gotten older, “first thing” has come increasingly later (despite efforts to the contrary). Mostly, people want to sleep in. This year we start at noon. We’re waiting for the arrival of my sister. She decided to stay at her in-laws’ with her husband …
