Just finished watching the Bucs/49ers game. The game’s not over yet (there’s about a minute left), but with the way the Bucs are playing, short of a miracle, we’re gonna lose to the worst team in the league. (sic) At least Tampa’s succeeded in one thing: making the niners look like the niners of old.… Read more Gah!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned since moving to Fort Lauderdale it’s that going through a hurricane isn’t easy. Sure, when you get little-old category 1’s, which don’t generally cause much damage, then it’s not particularly hard to get over them. But when the eye of a major storm, like a category 3 with 120+… Read more Hurricane Wilma Photos and Video
Florida’s been hit by something like seventeen hurricanes in the past two years. During that time, the media’s had more than enough of a chance to come up with dramatic sounding catch phrases that were sure to boost ratings. In the past two years, the following two phrases have been the most over-used and hyped-up,… Read more Hunker Down in the Shelter of Last Resort
The following are the lyrics to “Wrong Thing, Right Then”, by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Don’t know why, but this song’s been going through my head for the past couple of weeks. Despite the lyrics, this song has NOTHING to do with me or The Wife. It’s just a song I like that once meant… Read more Wrong Thing, Right Then
Wilma’s come and gone, but its effects are here for a while. No electricity. No potable water. But, I finally got my phone back yesterday. Weather’s cooperating, so it’s not too bad, but we only have a few days’ worth of water left. Food supply’s ok; we (The Wife and I) have enough food bars… Read more Back After Hurricane Wilma
Arranged marriages aren’t something Americans are very comfortable with, but for a large portion of those coming from places like India and Vietnam, arranged marriages are just another part of life. I was having dinner with a friend today when the topic came up. As it turns out, her family’s been looking to marry her… Read more Arranged Marriage Blues
Recently, I happened to stumble upon the online comic, Wapsi Square. At first, I saw it referenced in a thread on a forum site somewhere. I didn’t pay much attention to it then because it didn’t exactly catch my eye. It didn’t seem funny, and based on what I saw then, this was a comic… Read more Wapsi Square: Review
NOTE: This post may contain racy material. I’m not usually this uncouth. This is also a total rant which will at least be a bit funny, and at most kill part of your brain in the most horrible manner possible. You’ve been warned. Last edited 20 October 2005. — Here we go again. Another hurricane,… Read more Does God Hate Florida or Something?
13 – 27 (Normally I wouldn’t really bother putting up a score like this, but considering what I went through last week, I feel it fitting. ) Being a Tampa Bay Bucs fan living in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area isn’t easy. This past week, the Bucs played the Dolphins, and because of it I took… Read more Week 6: Dolphins vs. Buccaneers
When taking pictures, I love making sure the scenery is well represented. Often times, this is the subject of my photos. (Gee, how very Zen.) What follows is a collection of some scenery shots I’ve taken which I think would make great desktop wallpaper.
