Posted by on March 18th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

When I was about ten, I created a home-made pair of nunchucks. I sawed a broomstick into two short kid-ninja-sized handles and then, using screws, attached them together with a short chain.

Posted by on February 19th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Did you watch “Full House” growing up? I did. Each character had their shining and whining moments, but the character that never made any sense to me was Michelle. Yes, I’m talking about the cutesy Olson twins who played the single character whose sole purpose was comic relief by way of small smiles and giant […]

Posted by on August 1st, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

It was one of those days. Really rough. So rough, my rough day graduated into rough tomorrow because it just wasn’t through with me yet. Fugh. “Yeah yeah, we all have those days.” Okay, I’ll stop whining and get to the point. I watched this video and it all seemed less sucky all of the […]
