If life were like fairy tales, I'd have been devoured by trolls already.

wrapping up

Finals are around the corner and we’ve all got other things to worry about, so it looks like the blogs will be shutting down after Thanksgiving. I may stick around here a little while longer, but soon I will return to my old home at (now with a brand new design!). As The Hub’s […]

it’s Paul Simon Sunday


There’s nothing I can write here today that would be a better use of your time than Tiara’s article. Go read it.

Periscope: Notes from a submarine

I have a confession to make. I am a blog junkie. For a news junkie, it was an obvious next step, because with blogs we can go beyond just reading the news. We can join the discussion that decides what the news means. And where a newspaper is constrained by journalistic objectivity, a blog can […]

moving day

For the rest of the year I will be blogging at The Periscope, my new home on the University of Oklahoma student Hub. I hope all of you who have enjoyed my posts here will follow me to the new site. I’ll return to this blog in 2008.

on a bed of California stars

I will be out of town for the next couple weeks, so blogging will be light to nonexistent. But I will return bearing photographs and tales of adventure.

a mighty wind

Watching a thunderstorm out my bedroom window when a gust of wind knocks a very large branch off the tree in my front yard. Needless to say, it was awesome. And a side view with house for perspective.

if only!

On the Plymouth Belvedere recently unearthed in Tulsa as part of a 50-year time capsule: the car was interred with 10 gallons of gasoline, in case fuel would be obsolete in 2007

more on O’Dorney

This is a bit of (okay, a lot of) a rant, but Idyllopus is right.  If being “properly socialized” means attacking a 13-year-old genius who did nothing worse than be a little awkward on TV, then I’d rather not be.

hooray for nerds

Check out this wonderful video of Evan O’Dorney, the recent national spelling bee champ, on CNN. The spelling bee is one of the few, if not the only, popular national competitions that rewards something besides looks and made-for-TV social skills, and it is priceless seeing the anchorwoman try to handle this brilliant, yet hopelessly awkward, […]

bug blogging

The week in DC was followed by the week of weddings, hence the blogging hiatus. But now I’m back, and ready to talk about bugs! Pictured here are some Colorado potato beetle larvae, currently in the process of eating my potatoes. I’ve always wondered where these things come from. They only ever show up on […]

as i go ramblin’ round

D.C. pictures can be seen here. On a related note, Flickr continues to be awesome. On an unrelated note, Pandora also is awesome.

been around, seen a thousand places

Going to D.C. for a week.  Blogging will resume thereafter.

flashback from small times

Bear with me; I will be filling my nerd quotient for the week with this post. I devoured the Lone Wolf books as a kid. They were sort of a “choose your own adventure plus.” It was the same format, where you turned to different sections of the book based on whatever decision you made, […]

First Post

Going to try my hand at this blogging thing that I’ve heard so much about.
