    I started my coffee decrease process this week, trying to find the exact spot where it goes from stimulating to jittery-inducing

    every morning I read two or three LRB articles until I finish that issue (skipping 1/3 to 1/2 of articles along the way) and then once I've knocked out the LRB, I read the journals until the new LRB arrives

    taking away my commute has really killed my book reading -- I'm way, way down on that and trying to get back

    when summer is here and it's nice and light out late, I leave work to go the lake and read books and swim for a couple few hours every afternoon -- that's when I'm my peak reading -- 80% of the time I read novels, but the other 20% I read stuff that I don't really know how to categorize like Maggie Nelson Argonauts (crit lit, I guess) or compilations of essays from guys like John Jeremiah Sullivan

    throughout the day, I read a good bit of news and essays when distracted from work and my important boards posting

    I might love coffee more than beer and I really love beer. I only use half and half now, can't believe I used to dump creamer in there without even realizing how much it was. My friend is going to Colombia this week and bringing me back some, I can't wait.

    I made a resolution to try and read a lot more books this year. Made a huge list based off some recommendations and checked out most digitally from my library. So far this year I've read about 12.

    I'm glad my now-wife at Wake convinced me to play a musical instrument, I really wish I had started when I was younger. The Symphonic concerts I played in at Wake were so much fun because you got to be a part of a performance and experience that adrenaline rush at the end.

    Been reading about 20 pages a night of Obamaís latest book which is about as dense as a bible so thatís practically immeasurable progress. I only have a few minutes to read before wife turns off the light.

    Mako I approve of your Folgers purchase because I figure if youíre going to load it down with flavored creamer why bother buying more expensive good coffee that would only be appreciated black.

    An Oberon sounds fucking delightful. It is a great springtime beer. Might have to stop and get a sixer on the way home.

    but also it's been incredibly special to get to spend this time together with family, my son and his lil cousin, the age difference rn between a 6 month old and a 3 month old preemie seems really staggering but as they grow up they'll be basically the same age as each other and that rules

    i really like my cousin closest to me in age and getting to grow up with him was very fun and cool, though we only saw each other a couple times a year
    My wife's brother and his wife, who live in the area, are expecting their first this summer/fall and I'm pumped. I'm hoping it is a boy so that they can hang and do similar shit (Which I know is outdated gender construct, but leave me alone its probably still true). Although I already told my son since he's going to be 12-14 months older that he can never lose to that kid in anything. Ever.

    Hopefully this isnít too political, but based on my uncleís Facebook posts itís not clear to me that he understands that as a government employee, his paycheck is composed of money taken from other peopleís paychecks.

    As the young folks say, it slaps. Nothing says spring the way Oberon does. Probably my favorite beer, all things considered.

    Unknown in Charlotte has probably one of my favorite beers of all time, called Hospitalitea. It's a lager made with tea leaves and a little honey and it's amazing in the spring and summer

    I've chosen to estrange myself from my cousins and most of my extended family so I don't know much about their lives or their childrens lives and I can assure you my kids won't know any of them. When I finally made the decision that I didn't want any part of them I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders - like I was fighting it for so long and accepting estrangement made me feel much better about it. #CTTherapy
    My dad grew up really tight with his cousins and the tradition has continued to our generation. We occasionally go on vacations with my 3rd cousins, most of whom are around my age(and rich as shit so that doesn't hurt either) .
