Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America

I saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier last week, and as evidenced by the fact that it was the #1 movie for the 2nd weekend in a row, I was not alone.  Unlike the first Captain America movie, this one takes place in the present time.  Despite having just woken up into this new modern world, Captain America seems to have adapted pretty nicely.  I guess that super serum did more than just make…

300: Rise of an Empire

I went and saw 300: Rise of an Empire with some friends this past weekend.  As the title implies, it is a sequel to the movie 300, which came out something like 7 years ago I think.  I saw 300 only one time, at the movie theater so unlike the friends I saw this with I totally forgot the small details of what happened in that movie.  Just the big stuff, like how 300 Spartans defend against what…

Annual DST Rant

This past Monday, my alarm sounded and not since the previous year, I struggled mightily to turn my alarm off, get up, and start my day.  It was painful.  This morning?  The exact same thing.  And I am pretty sure this torture will continue for the rest of this week at the minimum.  If history is any indication, I will not get back to a totally normal sleep/wake up schedule for at least a couple…

Tastes are changing as I age

Tastes are changing as I age

The wife was out one weekend and I was thus home alone to fend for myself.  I bought some things, did some errands, made my typical instant noodlelunch with some dumplings, took the dogs to the park, played some video games.  So, you know.  The typical being lazy and vegging around the house type thing.  Then came time for dinner.  I decided to eat some Hawaiian food at a place that I have not…

My PRK Experience

I am a little over a year past my PRK surgery to correct my vision.  I just wanted to put together all the posts I’ve written regarding this surgery for those that are thinking of going through the same thing.  It is a scary thing to contemplate, as this…

Post PRK – One Year

I cannot believe it has already been one year since my PRK surgery.  It just went by so fast.  I am so used to not wearing glasses anymore, such that whenever I see a picture of myself with glasses from over a year ago, it looks funny to me.  Funny how…

A little visit to freezing Chicago

I was in Chicago for most of last week for a work training class.  Some thoughts on that little visit.

I was in Chicago a few months back too for another training class, and I can say without a doubt the first visit was much more pleasant!  OMG, it was…

Got myself a Nook

A couple years ago, my dad won a Kindle.  He doesn’t read, so he gave it to me.  I started reading all my books on the Kindle and have not really read a physical book ever since.  Well, my Kindle died a couple weeks ago.  No matter what I did, it would…
