Don’t Send Me Someone Else’s Email

Thanks xkcd!  So it’s not just happening to me?  I wondered if anyone else had this kind of thing happen to them. I have been included on family-wide emails to a clan of Mormons for years despite trying to explain to them that they HAVE THE WRONG EMAIL ADDRESS.  I tried for a year or so to correct things — I certainly don’t want the … Continue reading Don’t Send Me Someone Else’s Email

Words of Wisdom from Boulet

(Read the comic in its full size glory at Boulet’s website here!)  Yay me! I’m at home because the United States government can’t figure out how to handle the most basic responsibility of governance: adopting a budget!  I actually was called into work the first week of the shutdown but have now spent a week and a half at home, knocking down long-delayed errands and … Continue reading Words of Wisdom from Boulet

A Post About Sinfest

(Granted a few rough edges would have had to been smoothed down but at its heart this is a PG comic.)  Rigorously following the format of the newspaper style and religiously updating every single day with a full colour extended Sunday edition, creator Tatsuya Ishida is talented and … Continue reading A Post About Sinfest

A Few Thoughts on International Futbol

Association Football known world-wide as football or futbol but tagged with soccer in the United States is the world’s game by any measure.  I have my own complicated relationship with the game which has meant different things to me at different points of my life. Right now it’s World Cup qualification season across the world. In each of six regional confederations, tournaments are ongoing to … Continue reading A Few Thoughts on International Futbol
