I’m Dreaming About Robert Pattinson

I get about 3 hours of sleep a night. I expect those hours to be blissful. Last night, the entire 3 hours was one extended nightmare. It went like this. My friend BJ rented a house for a weekend-long party, and he didn’t invite me. A lot of my friends were there. Somehow I stumbled […]

“Hello, World” – Samuel Ernest Herbert

He came 6 hours before the scheduled C-section.  My wife went into labor around midnight, so we got in the car and ran every traffic light between Wilton and Stamford Hospital.

A family friend recently showed me how to create these cool text shortcuts on the iPhone. You can type in “omw” for example, and auto-correct will change it to […]

REVIEW: Breaking Dawn Part 1, The Twilight Saga

I was coming straight from the office, so I met my wife at the movie theater. She was already inside. I handed the cashier my credit card. “I ordered online.” “Just the one?” I tried not to blush. ——————– I knew I was in trouble before the movie even started. The first preview was for […]
