Back when I was commuting to the city every day, I purchased a crock pot. The idea of having a meal ready to eat when I got home from work was very appealing. Ironically, it wasn’t until I became unemployed that I was able to really start taking full advantage of the pot as a cooking tool. Let me tell you, crock pot and slow cooker recipes seem deceptively simple, but there are actually a lot of things you should know before trying to cook with the pot. Continue reading
It’s been a long time since I’ve done anything with this blog. For a long time now, I’ve been expressing myself through other mediums like podcasting, forums, and micro-blogging. That doesn’t leave a whole lot left for a blog. Continue reading
If you read the post prior to this one, you would have gotten the idea that I was going to make a lot of blog posts very soon. This is exactly what I planned.

So lately at work, they haven’t been giving me very much work to do. There is working waiting in the wings, but just because of how things are going, there are many hours at work where I have absolutely nothing to do. You can imagine this gets quite boring.

I am a relatively smart and popular guy with a sizable presence on the web. There are lots of people who know who I am via this blog, my podcast, conventions and comments I post on various sites.

It is no surprise that many of these people seek my advice when it comes to matters such as these. Usually this makes me happy, but sometimes it makes me sad. I like to help people, and I believe I am giving them good advice. However, I don’t have time to waste helping someone who has not tried to help themselves. Continue reading
Over the past year or so I’ve fallen into an unexpected crisis. I have more entertainment to consume than I have time in which to consume it. We’re not talking about just a few unbeaten video games or a small pile of unread books. We’re talking about a person only having ten or so hours a week in which to consume entertainment with hundreds of hours of quality entertainment becoming available in that same time.
