Millenium Park Bean

ShareTweetFit For a Layman The last two days have been altogether uneventful after my crazy nights in Memphis and New Orleans, but it’s been pretty nice to have an eye in the storm. It’s definitely given me time to get a little more introspective. Every other person that sees a guy packed to the gills,

It’s Amazing! A Tale of Travels Part 3

Neon lights and traffic on Beale Street

ShareTweetSomehow, the City of New Orleans 8+ hour train ride felt even longer than the twenty hour trip to Nawlins. Maybe it’s that I slept half the first ride. Maybe it’s that I had been to New Orleans before, and didn’t have the anticipation I had for Memphis. Maybe it was instrumental music I chose

Roxie and Holly

ShareTweetI don’t know about everybody else but I have been pretty busy the past few weeks. Unfortunately, that means less quality time with Roxie. And now that Romeo has been adopted, Roxie doesn’t have a playmate to keep her busy. So I’ve decided to alternate taking her to work and to day care every week

Yes, In Your Backyard: The Rise Of The Urban Chicken

Feb 23rd, 2012 | By

ShareTweetI’ve wanted chickens for a long, long time, oddly enough…might have been a combination of watching Vincent and Theo and reading A Slice of Organic Life.¬†Living in between UNCG and Greensboro College not at all far from downtown, it seemed like, well, a bit of an odd thing to want. It wasn’t the thought of

India House Hostel in New Orleans

ShareTweetThe travels are off to one hell of a start. My train rolled into Nawlins around 7:30. Amtrak was somehow actually on time despite a number of delays along the twenty hour train ride. Twenty hours, as it turns out, really isn’t that long. I had just enough time between getting off the train and

From Greensboro by Train

ShareTweet “If we don’t have it, you don’t need it” That was painted on a crumbling brick storefront downtown Villa Rica, Georgia. The paint was washed with decades, if not centuries of warm Georgia rain storms. It was passing that storefront along with the “Los Cowboys” mexican restaurant and the “Villa Rican” something or other,

First of all, I know smoking is stupid.

ShareTweet  You don’t have to tell me. It’s stupid. Probably the most stupid thing I’ve ever done. Most stupid? Stupidest? Both.¬†Now that everyone knows how stupid smoking is, and the only place us stupid smokers can still light up is outside, I have some grievances. First of all, smoking outside makes me lie a lot.

Romeo and Roxie

ShareTweetEverybody knows how much I love my dog Roxie but for the past few months, I have had the urge to get another dog. I stopped by the Guilford County Animal Shelter and saw a cute but rather interesting looking, 2.25 pound, full grown, brindle italian greyhound with a chihuahua face. Roxie liked her and

ArcBARKS Dog Treats

ShareTweetWhile Roxie and I were at the 2011 Festival of Lights in downtown Greensboro, I ran across a special booth that was giving away ArcBARKS dog treats for small donations. The treats are all natural and consist of peanut butter, flour, oatmeal, vegetable oil, and water. Roxie just loves the treats and gets excited if

Thomas: They, Them, Theirs

Dec 20th, 2011 | By

ShareTweetUsually when I have nothing to write about and lots of important schoolwork to do, I head downtown from my boring-ass little college island on my hip little ten-speed, tie said ten-speed up at the Green Bean and set off around the streets with my little notepad and pen, waiting for something to happen. “Looking
