The substance of blog posts is almost always date-specific...usually something that happened on a particular day. If you're looking for "timeless" content, head on over to Stubs, where I've started a number of posts to capture some preliminary thoughts about various topics I want to explore. (As I flesh those out, they'll turn into proper, organized posts, rather than being in a "writing stubs" dumping ground!)

Firm and kind, I patiently explained the nature of our relationship and acting toward our mutual interest.

Overstock.com and Ceva Home Delivery

2021-05-21 (last updated on 2021-06-08) | Edit on GitHub

I am absolutely floored at the sheer incompetence of Ceva Home Delivery.

A Sobering Krav Maga Experience

2019-11-16 | Edit on GitHub

For the first time since starting Krav Maga over 4 years earlier, I had an experience in class that was so disorienting and exhausting that I struggled to muster up the will to keep fighting.

Involuntary Nonconsciousness

2011-06-22 | Edit on GitHub

This was the first time I passed out from a "purely psychological" trigger. But regaining consciousness was the most interesting part of the experience.
