In the spirit of calling spades spades, I wanted to mention that I'm taking a break from posting here for a while.

In the meantime, do let me know if you have ideas! Otherwise, if I decide to get back to this, I hope to do so with a little more focus and regularity.

Take care!

Something Porchy!

Cleveland, Ohio's Larchmere Porchfest

Washington, D.C. is in full bloom right now, which makes me eager for summer. With summer comes porch-lounging, and this is maybe the best kind.


This Cleveland event is another reason I'm looking forward to working and living in Ohio this summer.

Disclosure: My brother Josh and his wife Gina are organizers for this event. They even have one of these at home.

Trees v. Grass: A funny photo.

My good friend Sean pointed me to this site called There, I Fixed It. It's pretty hilarious.

This photo struck me as one of the more profound, especially in light of the caption: "Using Trees to Kill Grass Seems Wrong Somehow."

Funny stuff.

Love is creative; sex is analytical.

New research cited by Miller-McCune shows that thoughts of love, but not lust, inspire creative thinking.

Sex, on the other hand, triggers more analytical thoughts (though let's hope not too much).

Thanks to Utne.

Green is the Color of Envy, Isn't It?

Thanks to the Utne Reader for invigorating my domestic side. I've never had a harder time fighting my nesting urges.

These beautiful, but somewhat realistic, green homes on Natural Home magazine's "15 Best" list are downright inspirational.

My torts professor from last semester has lots of nicknames, but "Father of Potty Parity" could be the stinkiest. In any case, he's probably right about the National Mall not having enough toilets for the upcoming inauguration of President-Elect Obama.

If he is right, find me and I'll let you use my bathroom.

Happy inauguration! Be safe, and remember the reason for the season.
