I can’t believe people actually publish books like this: Is stacking cubes really such a difficult task that it requires a $39.95 book to teach people? By the way, you’ve gotta love the devil horn on that red-tinted woman.Read More Read it and weep!
I got a haircut tonight. Ugh. It’s not what I hoped for and a bit too short in some places. The girl was in a hurry. …but in a month at Anime Boston, it should be a length I’m happy with.Read More “Which one did they cut?”

Ugh. By that time, the battery will probably be dead anyway. […]Read More Car update

An hour later, some guy from Jack’s Towing in Maynard (which is only about 5 minutes away) shows up. He forgot his jumpstart kit. […]Read More Cars suck…especially mine this week.
