Welcome to My Website

What you will find here is a general conglomeration of all the things that I do. Be it writing, poetry, food, lifestyle or just general fun; this site is where you will see these through my eyes.

World’s Greatest Guac

Does it seem presumptuous to title a blog this way? Perhaps it is….but I’d like to make the argument that I am not, in fact, being pompous in my nomenclature here. It’s the fault of the Guac…. You see, every single person who has a guac recipe…..every one…..believes that theirs is the World’s Greatest Guac*. There’s an irrefutable law of…

Outfit Rundown: Inexpensive Style

There seems to be a fair amount of mystery for some, surrounding the notion of being “well dressed” or “fashionable” (or whatever term you prefer to apply.) I’ve said on numerous occasions, both here and on social media, that I’m of the option that it’s not really all that complicated. I mean sure….you can make it tremendously complicated, but my point is…..it…

The Abandoned Box or My Great Shamefulness of Character

Dearest friends, It’s not my custom to make my personal shortcomings known the the general populace.

And consequently, the default logic (however…

In the first 16 years of my marriage I have learned an incalculable number of things and…

18 Tips for Shaving Your Head (and Living to Tell About It)

These days, there are a lot more guys rocking the shaved head look. This hasn’t always been the case though. In fact, I’m pretty sure that even if I was blind I’d be able to guess someone’s age based exclusively on how they talk to me about my head. Things like, “Goin’ for that Kojack look, eh?” or “I like…

Thank You Pinterest

In addition to majorly upping the ante for extravagant, character themed desserts and turning people everywhere into full-time hoarders (don’t waste that empty toilet paper roll!), Pinterest has done an effective job of equipping young women with a keen appreciation for men’s fashion. Sadly though, this “Pinterest effect” seems to have had little impact on the vast majority of young…
