#TBT: Chip [name redacted] and Joseph Heller’s ‘Catch-22’

Several years ago now, when I was still on the right side of thirty years old, I worked with Chip.

He called me to his office one day to discuss an issue he was having with some software my team supported, but when I arrived he wanted to talk grievance.

“What I can’t understand…” Continue reading “#TBT: Chip [name redacted] and Joseph Heller’s ‘Catch-22’”

My Czech TV debut!

Well, “C.T.” – my new favorite European correspondent – was as good as his word. I made the Czech TV news on 10/16! Perhaps my dream of doing a Czech gum commercial is still a possibility?  I await their communique…

Thanks to Nick Newlin for posting the video!

My notebook habit…

A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine gave me a pair of leather-bound notebooks.  “You’re a journal writer, right?”  I had to think about it for a second before offering a tentative “yes,” since I’m a journal writer more in concept than in practice.  I’m far more likely to watch a film or read a story about a journal writer than to actually sit down, crack open a new page, and put my pen to paper (or fingers to keypad, as it were) nowadays, such is the procrastination, lethargy, and outright dissipation that can dominate my existence.

But still, I accepted those notebooks, as if Continue reading “My notebook habit…”
