Here is a rough copy of the American Community Survey questionnaire. I wasn’t able to locate a scanner, but I’m a quick typist. The only thing you’d gain from a scan is the design of the survey, which honestly isn’t too difficult to follow. I can confirm that there are no choices for you to […]

The American Community Survey (ACS) makes me very uncomfortable. It is a nationwide survey that is being forced upon the unlucky that happen to live in one of homes selected at random. I was one of those unlucky people and took immediate issue with some of the questions being asked and the manner in which […]

Wedding at Gramercy Mansion

One of my best friends got married Saturday at Gramercy Mansion. The ceremony occured on the main staircase and was simple yet elegant. My official duties as a groomsman weren’t so lengthy that I didn’t have time to chat with people, so that was nice. I’d say there were about 150 guests in all, most […]

Sometimes I chase eighty milligrams with sugar water and immediately demand more from my supplier. On a few rare occassions I’ve taken so much that I’ve experienced muscle twitching and […]

I decided to put my office cleaning project on hold today. I also curtailed laundry, dishes, and a few other household tasks. It was just too nice a day outside to spend it inside. I figure there will be warmer days to work inside. It was breezy this morning, so I took the opportunity to […]

In years past Independence Day has been a day of grilling with friends and family, quasi-affixed to a long weekend. Lots of marinated foods, outdoor foolishness, laughter, and other assorted goodness. The fact that it’s on a Wednesday this year is jacking up my chi. I can’t justify taking two days off to make it […]
