Last Supper

Last Supper

Tonight, Traci and I met up with Melissa, Whitney, Brad, Kavita, and some of their other friends and family at Buca di Beppo (roughly translated as “Joe’s Basement“) and got our carb-loadin’ on. Me, Traci, and Melissa split the spaghetti, which I didn’t think was that great. The noodles were a little too chewy for… Read more »

Marathon Runner’s Pack

Marathon Runner’s Pack

Today, we went to the Expo at the Nashville Convention Center to pick up our runner’s pack. The Expo was pretty cool, and not nearly as crowded as I was expecting. I was able to get my pack, chip, and t-shirt in a matter of minutes, then had time to walk around the Expo hall… Read more »

Where’s that confounded bridge?

Where’s that confounded bridge?

Thanks to the digital age, I can sometimes hang my digital camera out my car window and just take a steady stream of pics of the surrounding area. Today I actually ended up with something halfway interesting. This is a pic of the overpass I pass on my way home from work everyday. When I… Read more »

Viral Marathon Marketing

I’m starting to see some Marathon swag popping up around town. As you may know, Traci and I will be trudging along in this year’s half marathon. I’m pretty excited about it…or I guess I should say I’m just ready to get the d*mn thing over with.

Blackbird, Get Your Grub On!

Blackbird, Get Your Grub On!

Just when I think there’s not enough wildlife pics on the Piccal, I happen upon a blackbird chowing down on a half-eaten apple someone discarded in the ghetto. Actually, this may be some other type of bird, but any bird that has black on it is a blackbird to me.

Pot Picking

Pot Picking

Today I decided to replace the 2nd tone potentiometer (or “pot”) on my Fender Stratocaster (or “Daniella”). Over time, I’ve noticed that this tone knob has been behaving a little erratically. Ever since I’ve owned the guitar, I’ve kept this knob turned down to the 1 (lowest) setting. However, about a year ago I noticed… Read more »

Potluck Powerball

Potluck Powerball

Tonight, Traci and I had dinner at PF Chang’s with Chad and Jen. During dinner, the discussion of starting a restaurant/bar came up and we found that both parties were very interested in the idea. The majority of discussion revolved around our future business, and eventually led to the mention of the building across the… Read more »

Teen Angst Strikes Again

Teen Angst Strikes Again

It wasn’t but three short Fridays ago that some upset teens (presumably) desecrated the walls of this railroad overpass. On my way to work this morning, I noticed that there was more words of wisdom for me to read. Unfortunately, I was running late and there were cars behind me, so I didn’t have time… Read more »

Ru-Ru-Ru Your Cube

Ru-Ru-Ru Your Cube

Mark and I have discussed many times that, throughout our childhood and even into adulthood, we’ve asked for a certain name-brand product but received a cheaper brand-x knock-off. For some people, this is fine…preferred even. But, sometimes it’s just no good. One day, Mark brought what appeared to be a Rubik’s Cube to work. It… Read more »

Piss on For…wait…

Piss on For…wait…

Ain’t no two ways about it; either this guy meant to get the Piss on Ford stickers, or he was confused about what the stickers meant. Whatever the case, this is the most outstanding picture for today, so this is what you’re getting.
