The 5 Keys to Finding Mr. Extraordinary

I had lunch with a woman today at my place. Err–my brother’s place. She came over so I could help set-up her blog on WordPress. I made a nice salad–complete with fennel. Now, you know I’m out to impress if I spring for fennel. That’s a luxury item in my budget. Anyway, we had a nice…

Shaken or Stirred: How Do You Like Your LOVE Served?

Creative People: Why Are You So LAZY?!

I woke up at 1:30pm today with this thought: Am I lazy or…? A lot of us judge ourselves by how productive we are in our day-to-day lives. This is a big problem for creative types.
