Even as I type this, we can still hear the helicopters in the air, and what sounds like dozens of more police cars heading to the rally vicinity where… Read more »

The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi Summary & Review

Paolo Bacigalupi. Bacigalupi. He’s Portuguese, and I have a lot of fun saying his name. Bacigalupi! 🙂 Also, he wrote a book called The Water Knife, which I recently read and very much enjoyed. I had previously read a great book by Bacigalupi called The Windup Girl, and his writing has only gotten better in this most recent publication. I expected The Water… Read more »

The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi (Review)

      1 Comment on The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi (Review)

How Star Wars Conquered the Universe! – Slug-Bug Meets Obi-Wan

Tezi and I play this game that’s a modified version of “Slug-Bug.” You might say it’s “Slug-Bug-Meets-Han-Solo.” Instead of punching each other and getting a point for every Volkswagon Bug we see, we slug each other every time we see any sort of Star Wars related merchandise, or hear somebody mention Star Wars, or see a commercial or a piece… Read more »

Fact: Mistakes Are Necessary and Even Good

      1 Comment on Fact: Mistakes Are Necessary and Even Good

Everyone hates making mistakes.  Nothing new.  But here’s a friendly reminder: without the mistakes we’ve made in our lives how could we ever learn, how could we grow intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally?  The answer is that we wouldn’t grow, at least not very well. That’s the problem with drugs and substances, and addictions in general, dear reader.  And yes, I… Read more »
