      You may think this post is about finances. You’d be right. Clever reader.

      To preface this, I use Mint.com to keep track of my finances. Yes, this means they most likely have hashes of all of my financial institution’s online website passwords. I try not to think about it. Why go through the hassle? Mint just makes it too easy. I can’t imagine ever wanting to not use them at this point.

    • Post-Thanksgiving 2010 Day 3 of 3

      Our final day in Julian was short, and a little weird, and threw us quite an unexpected turn.

    • Post-Thanksgiving 2010 Day 2 of 3

      I woke up on Saturday to the sounds of dishes and people. I’d slept in until almost 9 before finally getting up and venturing downstairs. Pancakes were being made on a griddle, eggs were being whisked together in a bowl, and pan-fried potato cakes were being made on the stove top. I helped with the pancakes for a while as I sipped my coffee. Once all was prepared, we all sat down at Matt and Molly’s table, much like the evening before, and ate our smorgasbord of eats. I could really get to enjoy such a thing.

    • Post-Thanksgiving 2010 Day 1 of 3

      Friday morning was the day after Thanksgiving and Robyn and I headed home from her parents’ house (only after a delicious meal at Zov’s, a favorite breakfast spot). We got home around 12, unpacked, repacked differently, met up with Josh outside our Housing Complex, and then were on our way to Julian.

    • Thanksgiving 2010, Nebyoolae.com Fixins

      Another year, another turkey engulfed. I am thankful to have family nearby, even if it’s not my own flesh and blood, so that I can be with people who care about me and sit down to a good meal.

    • CakePHP Media View

      Anyone else out there using CakePHP 1.2 and trying to use the Media View component? I’m trying to hide the actual location of the MP3s on nebyoolae.com to make it seem more professional and give me more control over counting downloads (and maybe it’ll lower the number of random websites direct linking to songs).

    • The State of Michael

      I’m feeling two things right now. One, hungry, because my breakfast has left me and I’m not particularly busy, giving me ample energy to waste on not not feeling hungry. Two, cold, because it is cold in the office.

      I can update from my phone. The future is…yet to be written. The present, however, is decidedly super great pants ahoy.

    • Making Our House a Home

      When we first moved into our new home back in late May, Robyn had probably already been thinking of what color to paint the interior walls for months. For me, living in an unpainted house didn’t really register as being a thing that needed any attention. I’ve lived most of my life in rented apartments; she grew up in the same house her parents still own today. We have different experiences and different expectations.

    • World of Gonecraft

      Blizzard Entertainment makes some sweet games. I put many hours into the likes of Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablocr — er, Diablo. The consistent level of quality in the graphics, sound, and gameplay is always high. Of course, this includes their MMO behemoth, World of Warcraft.
