Geeky Moment of the Evening
I just discovered that there’s a place in Greece called Tanagra. It was well known in ancient times for making splendid figurines and terracotta sculptures, and today it houses one of Greece’s biggest airports. But do I notice this? Noooo, my first reaction right off the bat is to nearly squawk “SHAKA WHEN THE WALLS FELL.”

Daily Musings: A Post About Shoes
I work in a shoe store, and I’ve discovered that I can paint a picture of a person based off of a particular shoe. Like who would wear what type of shoe and so on.

So all this next week, I get to work with (arranging, stocking, and selling) explosives.

So I had an odd dream last night. I only remember bits and pieces of it, but two things I DO remember: 1. A great friend of mine - a caller for Irish dancing and coordinator of Irish cultural events - named Sam there, and his wife Annie had texted me, saying “Is Sam there with you? We heard the commotion and decided to check it out, but I wanted to make sure that he was there with...
