Blogger in a Strange Land

What’s the strangest place from which you’ve posted to your blog? When was the last time you were out and about, and suddenly thought, “I need to write about this!”?

Well, to get right to the point, the strangest place from which I’ve posted to my blog is at the local Barnes & Noble, because the only other places from which I’ve posted is in my room at my house and in my room at my former dorm. I lead a fascinating life, I know.  Continue reading


Eat, Drink, and Be Merry…

…for tomorrow we die. The world is ending tomorrow! Tell us about your last dinner — the food, your dining companions, the setting, the conversation.

I’ve gotta say, I was a little shocked when I first read this prompt. Maybe it was the finality of that statement “for tomorrow we die.”

My last dinner was also the first dinner I had while working for a local Thai restaurant. Continue reading

Welcome, Stranger

Think about the town where you currently live: its local customs, traditions, and hangouts, its slang. What would be the strangest thing about this place for a first-time visitor?

For the sake of my privacy since I don’t believe in advertising all of my personal information on the web, I’m going to rename my hometown Hippyville. Hell, I’ve probably called it that from time to time anyway.  Continue reading

Mouths Wide Shut

Are you a picky eater? Share some of your favorite food quirks with us (the more exotic, the better!). Omnivores: what’s the one thing you won’t eat?

Food and I have an odd relationship.

When I was little, there were three things that I simply would not eat (or rather would refuse to eat and then begrudgingly eat after being scolded): steak, oranges, and fish.  Continue reading
