Ran into this fun little bit about “Primes” earlier today. Can’t wait!
Sometimes the world is a wondrous place. Sometimes it reaches out and gives you presents. This weekend was one of those times. I’ll leave you hanging on the actual present until tomorrow, because I’m like that, I guess, but mostly because I want to get a picture of it to do it up right. Suffice […]
This is a very strange time at work. The news of my impending move away from the corporate world and into the life of a freelance writer is pretty much searching it’s happy place.
