Friday Link List!

Friday Link List!

I’ve been gently daydreaming about building another HTPC machine (especially now that we’re giving up cable next week!), except unlike my last foray into this realm, I think I want to build a media server to stash in the basement, and then have set-top boxes […]

Friendsgiving!

Friendsgiving!

Who has two thumbs and needs a goddamned party? THIS GUY. I’m feeling incredibly burned out from school, and our next break where we don’t have any is the week of Thanksgiving. I’m not one for celebrating oppression of native peoples or the practical extermination […]

Detox: Day 3

Detox: Day 3

I might as well update with the end of my detox, since I’ve finished it! Here’s what I ate: Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, hash brown patty, coffee with almond milk, 1/2 banana (other half fell on the floor, sad face) Lunch: NOTHING, too busy working, grar […]

Detox: Day 2

Detox: Day 2

Day 2 went a little something like this: Breakfast: EGGS! And coffee with almond milk. Lunch: Salad from home, as seen above, with romaine and spinach, salt, pepper, sunflower seeds, and craisins. This was actually a delicious combination, and I treated the craisins as I […]

Cleanse Me

Cleanse Me

So, I’m thinking of doing a cleanse. I know. I KNOW. I know what you’re going to say, just hear me out. Basically, I need a mile-marker. I’ve stop-started this whole “change my eating habits” thing so many times, the lines between healthy eating and […]

32 Before Thirty-Two

32 Before Thirty-Two

So far in my life, I’ve made two attempts at broad “life lists”: the 101 things in 1001 days list, and the 30 Before 30 list that I put here. Both had pretty sad, pathetic results. So I should obviously try again, RIGHT? Right. I’m […]

2 Dogs Pub in Iowa City

2 Dogs Pub in Iowa City

Last night, we decided to try out a new beer/food joint in town before heading to the grocery store (who wants to shop on an empty stomach?), so we headed over to 2 Dogs Pub on 1st Avenue in Iowa City. They bill themselves as […]

Food Angst

Food Angst

I had a mini angst-fest on Twitter yesterday about my relationship with food, which I think is something I really need to work out for myself. Here are some of the things I wrote: I should be able to drop weight simply by controlling my […]

30 Before Thirty!

30 Before Thirty!

I’ll be turning 30 years old on July 12, 2010, and I decided to partake in the project where you make a list of thirty things you want to accomplish before your 30th birthday. I don’t have long to go, but I’m hoping I can […]
