A Scone’s Throw

Today got away from me, but I’m still planning on posting my sixth story tomorrow. For now, I’m going to relax with my wife and enjoy another positively evil, craving-inducing episode of The Great British Baking Show. -Phillip

Why, Oh, Why?

There’s a lot of things you wonder about when you are a parent, but the burning question of the month: Who the hell decided O (“Oh”) and 0 (“Zero”) should practically be the same shape? -Phillip

Weekly Recap – January 16th, 2015

Health-wise, it’s been a trying week. The weather has kicked up the allergies. My wife has been fighting an infection and I’ve been fighting sinus headaches. D’oh. I told Angus he’s going to have to take care of us, but he doesn’t seem to keen on the idea. Still, I’m going to toot my own horn here and proclaim that I’ve been …

Weekly Recap – April 11th, 2014 – Through Tired Eyes

I had a late, late night dealing with a work issue, so this post is more of an “I’m still alive” ping. Must be prepping me for the baby. 🙂 Speaking of, my wife and I have received some encouraging news from the doctor. Things are looking up and hopefully she can get off pelvic rest in a few weeks. I’m making some progress …

Weekly Recap – December 13th, 2013

Happy Friday everyone. I’m usually not the superstitious type, so I will make no mention of it being the 13th, other than that one right there. This post will be short and sweet as my week has been filled with the following items: 1.) Day job. Booooooring. 2.) Studying for an IT re-certification test which I will be taking Monday …

730 days later…

“Yeah, but this time will be different.” When people say that, does anyone ever really believe them? After the umpteenth time, do they believe it themselves? It’s been two years since my first post on this little acreage of Internet. I’ve owned(?) at least two blogs in the past, probably more. Only one of them amounted to something and that was …

Weekly Recap – May 17th, 2013

For the most part, this week was pretty uneventful. I grabbed some tea with a good friend, read more of my research books, made some noise about why it’s taking forever and a day to write my novel, and admired my wife’s handiwork. How about I share some great articles I came across this week? Building Professional Relationships by Jae Dansie …

New Year's Hairpin

Since I lack anything of depth to say at the moment, I figured I’d take some time to tell you what I’ve been up to the past week. Sick I visited the folks for Christmas and Santa made sure I didn’t leave without a sinus infection. Of course this is really nothing compared to what my wife’s been going through …

Who Am I?

So I did something I’ve been meaning to do for awhile. I finally dropped the ‘beatbox32’ moniker from the blog/Gravatar and put up my real name. I can’t even tell you where beatbox32 came from. It’s a username I’ve had for about 20 years (back when I was using dial-up BBS and text-based Internet (let’s hear it for Lynx!)). Wow, …
