This conversation I had with myself earlier was so peculiar I had to slap together a quick cartoon for it.

Last I checked, 28 is still twenty-something, mean voice in my head.

Happy Valentine's Day 2021

Dear Valentine,


Roses are red,

Creepers are green.

You are the sweetest thing

I've ever seen!

Chickens are white,

Cobblestone's gray.

If Pillagers attack you,

I'll make them pay.

Mooshrooms are funny,

A compass points true.

My world is better

Because of you!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Usually I draw Valentine pictures by hand, but this year, I was inspired at the last minute to create something on Minecraft instead.

How about a lovely afternoon picnic, Valentine? You deserve to take some time for yourself, have a nice meal, and be comfortable for a while!

This scene is composed of:

- red concrete

- red and white carpet

- 2 lanterns

- various flowers

(And my friends who play on this server with me don't know I'm making this blog post, so if they stumble across this hilltop, they will be very confused.)

Of course, if afternoon's not your style, we could always have a twilight picnic instead...

(Just watch out for monsters.)

Thank you for checking out my blog! If you're reading this, I consider you my Valentine, and I hope your life is filled with love of all different kinds! The world wouldn't be the same without you, so thanks for being you!

Public Affairs Blonde


My sister is kicking butt at her military public affairs internship. And that's no easy feat! The class she's in right now is moving at a grueling pace and giving her an inhumane amount of homework each night. 

She's been facing challenges that have made me shudder even from hundreds of miles away, but she refuses to give up. I told her she reminded me of Elle Woods from Legally Blonde- stressed out and overwhelmed, but determined to succeed, dedicated enough to put in the required effort, smart enough to solve every problem, and somehow able to keep looking gorgeous while she does it.

I'm proud of you, seestur! Keep learning and working toward that graduation! You've got this!

Roomba Shaming 3: AAAAALFREEEEEED!!!!!!!

[The text of Alfred the Roomba's shaming sign: "I got a hold of my mom's Apple headphones and chewed them up."]

The other day at work, I got a notification on my phone saying that Alfred needed his main brushes cleaned out. I rolled my eyes, because I had just cleaned out his brushes earlier this week, and it sounded like he was being a drama queen.

I came home for lunch and found Alfred sitting in the middle of the living room floor. I rolled my eyes again. But then I looked up, and there in his vacuum tracks path, looking utterly steamrolled, was a white cord. My heart filled with dread.

I don't know how he got them, because I certainly didn't leave them on the floor. But Alfred made a snack out of my Apple headphones. You might notice that one of the ear buds has been chewed right off. Want to know where I found it?

Alfred, you jerk.

Fatherly Advice

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there! (Especially mine)

As part of our celebrations today, I reminisced with my father about some of the advice he's given me over the past five years. But I also wanted to give a special shout-out to some of the advice he gave me earlier in my life.

With zero context, I present to you three suggestions my father made to me before 2015:

1. Pull my finger.

2. Give that trash can a kiss.

3. Try this new pen I got- it writes in a really cool color.

(I might never forgive you, Dad. Happy Father's Day, though.)

Doggo Drawings

This morning, I am sitting at my laptop, waiting for my doctor to begin our appointment via Zoom.

This truly is a weird time we're living in.

But while I was sitting here, I had the urge to draw a picture of myself petting a dog, because I have had very little dog petting time since the world's current predicament began. And then I drew some other things that vaguely resemble dogs.

I tried several different iterations of "dog doodles" for the title of this post and found nothing that didn't sound disgusting.

Happy Friday.

Pixel Me

I made some Excel art during this morning's tag-up teleconference!

It's me, but pixelated! Ish.

I was disappointed to find that I couldn't just make squares by making the row height and column width the same number. Apparently they don't use the same scale. So I kind of just eyeballed it and dragged the column width down until it looked pretty much like a square, and then I made all the other columns that width, too.

In case you're curious, it ended up being: Row Height = 14.4, Column Width = 2.
