Why does a professional web designer have a broken-ass blog?

It’s broken because I’m a professional web designer. After I get home from a long day of beating HTML and CSS into shape with a rusty hammer, the last thing I want to do is go home and get out the hammer again, no matter how much I enjoy doing it.

But I still want to write occasionally in my spare time, so I’m not going to let my broken-ass blog prevent me from writing, which is what has been happening for the past few years. No matter what I do, I’m never going to feel like this site is finished anyway.

So there! Read it or don’t! And if there’s something that’s so broken that you can’t even use the site, let me know and maybe I’ll fix it.

I found this machine at work that just, like, makes water or something. You push this little lever, and a stream of water comes out of it. I couldn’t find the credit card reader, but it looks like anybody could just come up to it and get water for free if they really wanted to. All they’d have to do is put their mouth up next to the spigot.

Naturally, it was bolted to the wall so nobody could steal it.

Sometimes I forget my own age. But in my defense, the number changes every year.

Every era needs its heroes: people who are brave enough to stand up and speak the truth to power. And with that in mind, I’m just going to come right out and say it…pineapple is too tart.┬áCOME GET ME, PIGS!

Was just listening to that song “One Tin Soldier“. Supposedly, the moral of the story is that peace is the greatest treasure in the world.

Here’s a better one: don’t oversell what you possess when you’ve got a bunch of angry psychos living next door.

Saw two web sites that tell you how to make your own yogurt and ant poison. (Don’t get them mixed up.)

Isn’t that why stores exist? So you don’t need to make your own yogurt and ant poison?
