Taking Pictures of Food

I’ve lived in Oregon for nearly eight years. Besides my Keens, my Decemberists shirts, and my reusable bags, the most Portland thing about me is that I take pictures of my food.

Lunchtime Poll: Phobia Edition

I am going on vacation for a week to New Mexico as kind of a late honeymoon. We are visiting one of my wife’s mothers, which is all fine and dandy, but it is making me confront a huge phobia of mine: flying.

This OT is (Slowly) Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

Ah, vacation. I’m pretty sure there’s an equation that shows the inverse ratio of vacation enjoyment to time required for reality re-adjustment. Wow, that was a really nerdy way to say that going back to work after a few days off is rough.

This OT is on Vacation!

Good evening, Persephoneers! I am writing this post from the beauty-full Jersey Shore! This is not the vacation that is referenced in the title, though. Actually quite the opposite. This is a working trip, and boy, are we working.

This Open Thread Needs To Get Away

Y’all, my vacation is officially starting! It couldn’t be coming at a better time, and I (predictably) have had this song stuck in my head for a week. I even tried to think of other “going on vacation” songs to use and I couldn’t think of any! So let me know in the comments if […]

We Try It: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

A year ago, Universal usurped some of Disney World’s claim at the Most Magical Place on Earth when they opened The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at their Orlando, Fla., Islands of Adventure Park.

Good day, Persephoneers! I’m polling you today from vacation land, full of sunscreen and hoping that today lasts forever, for tomorrow we start to drive back home.
