An abundance of bad lyrics are making both my ears itch

Posted on April 29, 2011

I think we can all agree that our culture is in a precipitous decline (with the obvious notable exception of Conan O’ Brien…he is AWESOME). Reality shows about egotistical, over tanned, pompous northeasterners rule the airwaves (take your pick between the Apprentice and Jersey Shore) and stuff like this passes for “art”: as does this: (For those of you less than thirty-five, that picture is of Art Garfunkel who is famous ...

Anyone who knows me will recognize I really only have two flaws: poor eyesight and an inability to recognize flaws in myself. While I have made no attempts to correct thelatter, I have addressed the former with years of using glasses and contact lenses. My vision was bad enough to prevent me from doing things like driving, playing sports, or navigating my bedroom barefoot without the aid of corrective lenses. For those of you with excellent ...

El Guero Canelo Review

Posted on April 5, 2010

I’ve spent every year of my life living in or around Tucson. As such, I consider myself somewhat of a local expert. For example, looking for a good burger? I know exactly where the best local In-N-Out is. Pizza more your thing? I am a veritable catalog of Pizza Hut locations. When it comes to Mexican food however, there is one local eatery that stands cabeza y hombres above the rest. That restaurant is El Guero Canelo (translation: The ...

Those of you who know me well know that I am passionate about a few things: God, my country, my family, and Spongebob Squarepants. As a subset of the second passion, I fancy (translation: “go gaga for”) military aircraft. In fact, growing up I always wanted to be an F-16 pilot (for those of you who do not know what that is, a pilot is the operator of an aircraft). For the last 10 years I have told myself that, if it weren’t for my, to put ...

It is time once again for my quarterly blog. I have been keeping too busy to post, what with all the work, school, family obligations, and sleep that I have been occupying myself with. Most recently, Karina and I have been busy with all the work that goes into buying and selling a house.  We have begun the process of looking for a place to move to before August of next year. Ashton starts school next year and we want to be in a house and ...

Recently I’ve found myself eating out far more than I should. While more expensive than eating at home, I have been unable to resist the convenience, service, and tastiness of restaurants. My experiences over the past few weeks have given me some ideas that I would incorporate in a restaurant, were I ever to open one. I think the combination of these items, and some delicious food would lead to the world’s most bestest restaurant. Waiters ...

Believe it or not, I find I am frequently mocked for various reasons. Thankfully, I am fortunate to have a spouse that I can go to when I am being teased, she is my fortress from the winds of torment. Karina is always able to take the focus off of the pain, usually by finding something else to make fun of me about. A frequent target of her teasing is my habit of washing my hands…a lot. Now, before I defend myself, I would like to point out ...

There are few things I enjoy more than, or put in my body more frequently than food. The only exception to the former being basketball and to the latter: Q-tips. Therefore, since the fact that I eat food nearly THREE TIMES A DAY qualifies me as a pseudo-expert, I thought I’d share some food related information.  Unfortunately, our family tends to eat out more often than we should. Grabbing food while we are out running errands (such as ...

Friendly words of wisdom

Posted on December 1, 2007

The other night I was in the shower pondering ideas that I might use for another blog when it hit me. "It" being my shampoo as it had fallen off the shelf. But, then it struck me...this time it was the conditioner. I really have to fix that shelf. Once all of the hair products were back in place I realized what I wanted to write about: another shower experience. Don't worry though, this is a clean story (pun most definitely intended). It may ...
