Absentminded Adam: Haircut Edition

Wow… I’ve been lackluster with the blog.

Clearly I am now only writing this for myself… and to record memories as they pop up.

I got my haircut today – haircuts are one of my absolute favorite things. There’s nothing quite so awesome as sitting in a chair, relaxing, getting a scalp massage, getting the […]

My First 2015 Trip: Popping Around the USA!

As currently envisioned, 2015 is going to have a lot of travel – and virtually all of it vacation.

The past week and a half, I was stateside, hopping around: Las Vegas to see a college friend; San Diego to see ex-Berlin friends and a college friend; and Bloomington to see – well, to see […]

Notes on my time in Hoosier-ville

Time in Indiana: Sunday, 7pm, until 6:30 am, Thursday morning, split between Bloomington and Indianapolis.

Notes on Bloomington:

Holy cow, there is a ton of construction going on – the bypass, 10th Street, South Walnut, Sare Road, plus the ongoing construction on campus. What a nightmare, I’ve never seen it this bad before. The Owlery […]

I voted for Jonathan George in Indiana’s 9th Congressional District Democratic Primary

So after a bunch of comments from Hoosiers a week or two ago, I finally made my decision and I sent off my absentee ballot.

Really, of course, there was no question (or choice) for US President or US Senator: Barack Obama and Joe Donnelly, respectively, got my primary votes.

However, for the 9th Congressional […]

18:00 CET: I was at Chili’s… and luck was with me in Bloomington!

Wow – It’s been a very busy Tuesday. I had a total of ten specific tasks that I needed (or wanted) to do in Bloomington – an incredible range of activities – some fast, some not. Some never happened – and were replaced with alternative activities.

Honestly, I’ve never done so much in so little […]

18:00 CET – In Motion

For six nights in a row this week, I will not be sleeping in the same bed twice – right now I’m half way through this travel marathon and I am looking forward to being at rest, somewhere.

Monday at 10:00 Mountain Standard Time I was in Denver, specifically at the airport, […]

There’s a girl missing from Bloomington…

Anybody in Bloomington for more than about 5 or 10 minutes will immediately figure out that somebody named Lauren is missing, thanks to the posting of 10,000 fliers on everything from empty store fronts, random lamp posts, and everything else you could imagine.

She’s been missing since June 3, 2011, and her family is seeking […]

This is Indiana

One thing that I do now, more than I did in the past, is think about the messages that what t-shirts I wear, say. Consequently, I’m buying fewer random t-shirts and wishing I had more of some messages.

For example, at the gym I wear duds for the Wyoming Cowboys (I wish I had more) […]

Now underwhelmed by that first day excitement…

You can tell when people are changing classes…

While the timing of this trip was dictated by something I was invited to attend, it happens to match the first week of classes at Indiana University, Bloomington.

Technically, I’m on vacation, but I’ve taken care of a number of housekeeping-like things, like visiting the bank […]

Photos from Bloomington, Fargo, Moorhead, and Colorado

The mixer for making dough at Greek's Pizza

This is the replica Stave Church in Moorhead, Minnesota.

The stunningly beautiful and restored Hotel Donaldson, Fargo, North Dakota

At Jax, in Fort Collins, Colorado, Ritter Sport costs $3.19! I prefer paying 79 cents at the Ritter Sport store in Berlin.
