I was just buying some symphony tickets, and at one point while I was placing the order (online) there was a drop down list for prefixes. The entire list read:
Mr.
Mrs.
Mr. and Mrs.
Miss
Ms.
Dr.
Dr. and Mrs.

It seems to me that if you are going to include "Dr. and Mrs." that it is inappropriate and offensive not to include "Drs." and "Mr. and Dr." Are they implying that the only way a women could be a doctor is if she is single?

It really makes you start to feel like your vote doesn't matter when the concession and victory speeches for the presidential election occur before the polls in your state even close.

I just saw my first aurora borealis. I tried to take some pictures, but the city lights drowned it out. That and I have no idea how to use all the functions on my spiffy new camera that could help with this. However I do not want to lose sight of the important fact here, I just saw my first aurora borealis!

The blower motor on my car went out like a year and a half ago, and I have been meaning to fix it since then. However today it started working again. Looks like the problem solved itself. Damn I love being me.

I was just out kayaking, and I saw about seven white pelicans. Apparently they spend the winter in this area but what they were doing here in the 100+ degree heat is beyond me.

I have been house-sitting and taking care of a poodle for the past couple of days. There is a guest bedroom, but apparently that is where the dog hangs out. Last night I tried to go in there and sleep on the bed, but the dog barked at me until I went away, so I slept on the couch. It looks like the same thing will happen again tonight. There is nothing worse than being bested by a poodle.

I have been getting a call nearly every day on my new phone because someone named Hannah Speakman used to have my number and apparently she had an outstanding debt with Wells Fargo. In order to get this daily call stopped I had to call Wells Fargo, and wait on hold before I could speak to a representative about it. I hate you Hannah Speakman!!

My first piece of Inupiaq art. It is a walrus carved out of a mastodon bone, with mastodon ivory tusks, and baleen eyes.

I am going to the drive-in to see a double feature. I really cannot see why drive-ins went down in popularity, they rock.

If tomorrow you either found out that were going to die in a month, or you win 37.2 million dollars, would you drastically change your life? If you would, you are doing it wrong.
Introduction

If you are reading this, chances are that you know me. I used to live in Wisconsin, but because I hate cold weather and love Mexican food I moved to Texas. I then took the next logical step and moved to the Alaskan bush. The highest recorded temperature there was 85, and I think one of the five restaurants in that village served something that they called a burrito. I am now back in the Midwest where the food and temperature are slightly more acceptable.
