Below is my piece for the Wyoming Monologues, a performance put on at the University of Wyoming last night, March 8, 2013, following a performance of the Vagina Monologues. I owe a debt of gratitude to Ian, Stephan, Jay, Alexander, and Bonnie for their helpful comments during the writing process. Further, it would [...]
Yesterday I engaged in a bit of random Berlin exploration – it started innocently enough with coffee from *$ — after my coffee, I popped outside and got on the first bus I saw, Bus 186. I recognized the last stop listed (S-Grunewald), but I had no idea how I would get [...]
I realize, as I write this, that I am not about to post something that many of my Berlin friends will like, but I feel like saying it anyway.

Saturday morning, after having breakfast with one of my oldest friends, we headed over to the brand new History Colorado Center – brand new as it opened only a couple months ago.
The new museum replaces the old facility, which looked like a typewriter and was both one of my favorite buildings in downtown Denver [...]
Today, June 23, 2012, marks the 100th birthday of Alan Turing, a man whose efforts helped break Nazi encryptions, and, consequently, end the war. He was even awarded an OBE for this.
There’s no way I could do justice to him in this space.
But I do want to focus on the fact that he [...]
A week or so ago I got my first 2€ coin that celebrates 10 years of the Euro.
ECB's info on this special coin.
