Hey Team, **Good news! I’ve single-handedly discovered the one sure-fire way to ensure you stop blogging completely. Just write a post about how you intend to write more. Even better news!  Here’s a post I told my new friends over at Lux Delux I would write for them…a month ago. Enjoy.** First, some background: You…

No Cab Fare

No Cab Fare

Hey Team, I think I was kind of burnt out on this strange excuse for a city before I even got here. It’s hard to stay upbeat in a city where half the population thrives on cheating the other half. (Which is strange because normally I LOVE those stories.) Since I’ve been here I’ve had…

Paging Mr. Copperfield

Paging Mr. Copperfield

Hey Team, People write in fairly regularly with offers of help to cross things off the list. So for many of the objectives it’s just a matter of when and how I make it to the various regions in “these United States.” However, there are a select few that NO ONE ever writes in about.…
