On the Lamb: Two Weeks’ Notice
The Bloggist Is Away

Looks like I have no choice but to do some travel pieces, after all. Sell out. I hope they won’t be as difficult as THIS FIRST ONE. See you in a couple of weeks!

 

Blog-Off Battle: Fashion Juicy XXX (Part 4: Opposition Rebuttal)
Because Slagging Other People Off Is Better Through Rhyme

A good day to you, unwashed human reader. This is your comely canine commentator once again, Archer (Prof.). I recently slandered a dog, herein pictured, who answers to a witchy woman that my sorry human tried to antagonize previously. Because of the magicks of this “Worldwide Weavery”, the aforementioned dog was able to tele-mail my

Blog-Off Battle: Fashion Juicy XXX (Part 3: Government Rebuttal)
Because Slagging Other People Off Is Better Through Rhyme

Hello, filthy human readers. This electro-blog is once again being taken over by the man of the house. I may have been noticeably absent this month, but I’m back.

Wet and Wildlife

This is crazy weather. I hope everyone out there is safe and dry. Our village has been spared for the most part, thankfully.

To a Certain Degree (Part 2)
Some Learnings from Graduate School

I posted the last time about my post-graduate experience. I pointed out that an MBA is useful, but not necessarily for the things you learn from a textbook.

To a Certain Degree (Part 1)
Some Learnings from Graduate School

It’s been over a year since I graduated from business school, so this post is quite overdue. A bunch of my friends are graduating today, though, making this a good opportunity as any to upload this post. Since I graduated, folks would ask me whether my master’s degree was worth it.
