An Amazing Gift from an Amazing Girl

So I definitely have one of the coolest girlfriends ever. For my birthday last month (a day that – if you recall – had me feeling pretty down), she got me what is easily one of the best gifts ever: A vintage typewriter! I’ve often fantasized about owning an old typewriter: I’m a writer and […]

Love & NERF Guns

My apartment became a battlefield this weekend. When my new roommate moved in a couple weeks ago, he brought the usual amenities with him: a bed, clothes, alcohol, a marimba, some kitchen paraphernalia, and even a couple posters for his bedroom wall. What I didn’t expect him to bring was a gun! So imagine my […]

The Best Pick-Up Line Ever

I’ve been single for just over a year at this point, and it’s not something I’m particularly happy about. Being single again means dealing with the whole dating scene, and dating (as opposed to being in a relationship) has never been one of my strong suits. I can’t say that it’s all bad though, as […]

Online Dating: A Fun Sociological Experiment

Although I’ve never had a very good track record when it comes to dating, I’m not someone who is very keen on using the interwebs to find a girlfriend or just someone to have dinner with on a Friday night. I may be a geek, but I’m also pretty sociable, and there’s certainly no shortage […]

Dating in the Digital Age

I’ll totally admit that I’m pretty terrible at dating. I like to think I’m pretty good at being a boyfriend, but actually getting there has always been a hard journey for me. And it’s only gotten harder with technology. Back in the day (i.e. high school), if I was dating a girl, I usually had […]

Summers at the Drive-In

Unless you’re a really big fan of the beach, Summertime is all about one thing: blockbuster movies! My girlfriend and I are both big movie watchers, so obviously we’ve been spending lots of time at the local multiplex. And why not? There is a metric ton’s worth of good movies either out already or coming […]

Playing with Power

My girlfriend and I have been playing a lot of Wii games this year, and judging from today’s announcements at E3, the next year looks to have even more for us to play. Mostly, the two of us have been playing any Mario game we can get our hands on. We’ve completely eviscerated New Super […]

Majora's Mask Clock Town

Majora: Party of Two

I’ve been spending the last month playing The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask as part of the Brainy Gamer’s Vintage Game Club. Although I have not been as big of a contributor on the forums as I would have liked, playing through this oft-neglected Nintendo 64 game has really been enlightening. This will be the […]
