Where did the inspiration go?

This never happens lately. It was 4AM and I was driving south on Interstate 91 to the lower tip of Vermont and crossing the Mass border. Coffee in hand brewed at my house at 2AM and I was an hour away from meeting Chris for our annual Goose Island BCS Black Friday and suddenly, this …

It has been three days since I last checked Facebook. I haven’t had coffee or beer or meat in three days and my level of boredom from the lack of television and other stimulants grows at an even greater pace than my appetite. It’s also the 11th day that my neighbors smoke marijuana from dawn …

★ Starting my Annual Detox…now.

Wasting no time following my last post, “Hello 2012.” I have decided to kick off the annual detox a month early and I’m upping the challenge from last year in a way that seems completely impossible but is worth a shot. This is not a resolution for the new year and I welcome all of …
