Slow Movers
Given that I was awakened yesterday by the fire alarm in my building, you'd think I'd steer clear of posts about hot appliances, but nope. Summer is coming (a bit slower for some of us than others, but coming nonetheless), and no one wants to heat up their ...

Inflamed
The fire alarm went off in my apartment building in the wee hours this morning. (Okay, it was 5:40, so not exactly "wee," but still--today's not a running day so I was looking forward to sleeping for at least another hour.) Now, living on the ground floor f...

Above Average
Somewhere around 90 percent of drivers consider themselves to be better drivers than the average driver . At least, until they honestly compare their own driving behaviours to expert guidelines , when suddenly their self-assessment gets closer to reality. T...

Ranked
In the course of a recent Facebook conversation, I mentioned that when it comes to book recommendations, I have a list more or less called, "Burn at midnight any books recommended by these folks." (The conversation was technically about the current crop of ...

Quantitative Methods
Monday is usually the day I blog about running. Here's how my running is going: With that out of the way, let's talk writing instead. Well, creating. I default to writing because that's kind of my thing, but I'm pretty sure this applies to other types of cr...
