Didn't I just write my June recap, like, yesterday? Another month can't have passed already, can it? I guess it can. Wistfully, here is my 2014 Goals recap for the month of June. 1. The Reading Goal: Read George R.R.... Continue reading

Very dumb. But it's smart of them to do it. Cash in on the mistake.

The only run is that I've already read it. Ten years ago. Wasn't sure if I should "read" again via audiobook or not.

Many of the reviews of Paddle on Goodreads reference how they were expecting it to be more like Bossypants, which most seemed to enjoy. I may read it sometime but, for now, I'm going back to more historical stuff. I have a bio of President Garfield and another about George Washington's spy network sitting in Nook that I've been meaning to read for some time now. Meaty historical stuff. Right up my alley.

My review of Nick Offerman's Paddle Your Own Canoe as it appears on Goodreads (2 of 5 stars): Writing this review makes me sad. Truly sad. You see, I'm a big fan of Nick Offerman in his most readily identifiable... Continue reading

Two in favor of writing it. In the past, I've told yogis next to me to just elbow me if I start snoring. Better to be prepared.

I'll call that a vote in favor of writing it up.

Hi, I'm Kappy, and I'm a blogger. Got these ideas here in my head. I'm writin' and postin' and makin' friends. Some say I'm best in the midwest [ed. note: there is no validity to this claim]. Singin' yippie-ai-yo-kai-yay. It's... Continue reading

I love new music announcements! When a band or musician I like (or love) lets us all know that they have some new stuff in the hopper, I'm happy. Just. Plain. Happy. For example, this morning, I received an email... Continue reading

I guess it would be but I only use Weather on my iPhone. Just handier that way.

I'm not sure what you mean about saving locations in the Weather app. I'm not signed in but have six different locations saved that I swipe left and right to toggle between. Just like I could do in the iOS weather app.

Did you say it, too? My bad. So you, KevinSpencer, and Yvonne (DutchBitch) got it.

Welcome to another, albeit less disgusting, edition of Macro Monday! Two people guessed last week's photo almost entirely correct. "Almost"? Allow me to explain. This... Is a turkey and cheese sandwich cross section... However, the filter I used darkened up... Continue reading

You expected it to have a more paranormal slant? Yeah, being King, I'd normally expect that too. But the jacket description seems anything but.

Can I ask what you were expecting? And by "we," I assume you mean you and your wife, right?

They really need to get on that. It's been a complaint for far too long.
