Stuff that’s been in my head, and I want to get it off my chest.
Recently I’ve been remembering a conversation that I had back when I lived in Bloomington between grad students – we were talking about money and debt. As I recall there was one spouse there, and the spouse said something like, [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Despite my earlier ambivalence about voting in the 2012 elections, I am gung-ho and ready to participate in that thing which is American Democracy!
First up, of course, is the primary – and, this time around, there’s no question as to who will be the Democratic candidate for president. Consequently, I kind of set the [...]
Ah, it occurs to me that I will soon visit my 48th state, and before I do, I want to knock off my key memories of the rest of the country.
So, starting with Wisconsin, my main memory is visiting the site of Little House in the Big Woods, another Laura Ingalls Wilder stop – [...]
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) [...]
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 [...]
French Toast at Wee Willie's on S. Walnut in Bloomington. This is one of my favorite breakfasts in the world and every time I come to Bloomington I make a point of eating this. The restaurant is a local's joint.
I passed through Paoli, Indiana, which had a huge fire last November. The [...]

Moving So Fast…
Victory Field at Dusk
After finishing work in Bloomington I headed north to Indianapolis—not that I like Indianapolis at all, but I needed am “Adam-Time” away from it all. I ended up spending my Friday afternoon looking for something in Indy, and not finding it – the biggest problem with Indianapolis is that there is no there there, and [...]
