Great mail day? GREAT mail day.
**It’s the most wonderful time of the year**
Seriously though, it is. It’s Baseball Opening Day. Which, unless you’re the White House, is the biggest holiday on the calendar.
Go ahead, I defy you to find me a more important day.
I can wait.
What a surprise.
So, I’ll move on.
For those of you who aren’t hopelessly hoping for 90 wins this season, I’m sure you have a lot to look forward to. Whether your team just signed Miguel Cabrera for almost $300mil, or you root for the Dodgers and they signed every other player.
But since I count myself among the Flushing Faithful, the only thing we have to look forward to is fun. From the constantly entertaining Jay Horowitz Twitter to the hometown boy makes good Darren Meenan turning The 7 Line into an officially licensed MLB product. There will be a lot of fun in Flushing even without Matt Harvey on the mound this season.
I’ll keep this updated a little better now that I have stuff to tell you guys, as well as expect a personal update soon explaining some of the decrease in updates.
Happy Opening Day!
Better than Christmas, better than your birthday, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. Happy Opening Day.
I’m sure that I could write a fucking book on the massive ways to waste time when you are awake early in the morning and should totally be doing things that would be considered “productive” or “worthwhile”; but I don’t want to because doing that would be something considered “productive” and “worthwhile. And who wants that? So instead! Here’s my favorite: Stupid Googling. And it’s so simple, that nearly anyone is probably doing it right now! Find a phrase that resembles something completely uninteresting that you are entirely unaware of, and type that into google. Some examples include:
- "What’s the deal with BJ Novak and Mindy Kaling?"
- "The Pixar Theory"
- "Marquee Tag HTML"
- "Foursquare Badge List"
- "Do they still make those Mead 5 Star notebooks?"

and by that I mean, one course that I was taking since the beginning of the year ended this week. so of course that means I have one starting on Monday and the course on Gamiification decided that today is double bonus lecture week.
I will say though, the more I learn about the psychology of what makes a gamified experience fun… the less I remember to check in on foursquare. as I type this I had to go double check to see if I’m still the major of the Starbucks here.
I guess what I’m getting at, fellow internet writers out there, are any of you doing better than I am at juggling full time work with 20 or so hours of schooling, and still managing to produce quality content on a consistent basis?
I’m sure that my production will increase with the oncoming baseball season, but I want to tackle the rest of you guys’ and your interests. like commiserating over how we all water fifty bucks pre-ordering a Coin and now magnet strip credit cards are dead. someone else here has to feel that one other than me.
— I’m pretty sure that this article is the best possible use of Medium.
I was originally going to title this post “Where the Fuck Have I Been??”, but I began to wonder just how many times I’ve used that title here these last 4+ years.
I Don’t Know, probably a lot.
Usually the answer is something along the lines of “On my couch”, “Working too much”, or “Writing, but not on here” and then I go on to promise the handful of you that are relatively loyal with your readership and that I honestly do appreciate I will be more diligent in my updating and provide you with the Laughing Out Louds that you have come to occasionally find in my writing or pictures.
Or maybe you’re the one person who clicks the links to things I found fascinating. But more than likely you are not.
So this time, I won’t make an empty promise. Not to you, and not to me. I always think I have what it takes to give you a quality post every couple of days and still have time to take classes and teach myself how to code and go to the gym and go to work every day.
But I can make a full promise. Once a week. Once every week I will post here with something good. I will write notes beforehand like a real ass writer, and construct for you a solid piece of reading.

Of course you do.
I hesitate to put this up here, but there is an auction company that has just listed the shard of bat Clemens is about to roid rage at Piazza in this photo.
What’s that you say? You had no idea that someone saved it?
Yeah, neither did anyone.
I’m pretty sure we all thought this ended up in the garbage.
For a mere probably $10,000 this shard of history can be yours.
In all seriousness if I had the disposable income I would buy the shit out of this.
- “Facebook is still far and away the best site for sharing photos with friends, but pretending that the acquaintances we’ve accumulated during life are...”
- burningthesouffle asked:I just read your book - loved it. It was what I needed to hear right when I needed it. Thanks.
Oh, fuck it. I’m certainly adverse to putting these kind of compliments on the blog, but I think when you’re having a shitty day it really helps to...
I need more pizza and puppies in my life
