Aftermath: #HurricaneMatthew

Previously, on me blogging and stuff… My last entry had us in Tampa, Florida.  That was Thursday night, and a lot has happened since then.  Sadly, all the issues aren’t resolved yet.  Here’s the skinny: ORLANDO.  After a night of wine and blogging, we got up too late to eat the awesome...

Hello Internet. I’m Avoiding #HurricaneMatthew by Blogging.

With respect to Mr. Robot… Hello, Friend. I am currently sitting in a Hyatt Place hotel on the west coast of Florida drinking wine and, well, writing this.  Getting here was no small picnic.  Here’s the “good parts” version. AIR CONDITIONING.  The prologue to this crazy tale is, hopefully, not foreshadowing....

UPDATED: My ANNUAL LIST of FLORIDA GEEK EVENTS 2016

This is a continuation of my original post from January 1st.  Normally, I just update that post – but with the influx of info that’s now sitting in my inbox/desktop/text messages – I figured it was just easier to create a second follow up post.  Most of the data is the...

Our WDW Annual Passholder Adventure 2016: DAY 02 & DAY 03

Last month, Shannon and I activated our annual passes for the Walt Disney World Resort.  Since then, she’s found time to swing by the park a few times – but getting both of us there at the same time to to ride rides can be tricky. Saturday I met up...

That Time I Walked in a Lunar New Year Parade #YearOfTheMonkey

Fun fact: I’m half Polish.  My mother was not born in the United States and, for part of my youth, I actually spoke and understood a decent amount of that particular language. (Now I just remember key swear words.) Traditions from my heritage weren’t that big a deal in my...

I’ve Now Seen Penn & Teller Perform Twice: Neither Time in Vegas

Part of the reason of blog so much of my life is because, with so much going on in it, it’s hard to remember exact details from time to time.  For example, I saw Penn & Teller perform in Washington, DC over ten years ago.  When exactly?  I’m not sure....

The next 24 hours will be both AMAZING and HORRIBLE.

I’m still far from healthy, but I am continuing to “act as if” in order to make sure things continue to get done.  Due to illness, I am -11 Gym Hours (counting today) and -2 Blog Posts. The good news?  I spend yesterday at my desk, hopped up on espresso,...

Live from Orlando, it’s #Otronicon!

What do you do when you have “down time” at your booth during a convention?  Why, blog of course!  I was supposed to have a “plus one” helping me out, but car trouble on her part has left me solo. So here I am.  Chillin’ at the Orlando Science Center....

Aquatica in Orlando, Florida – my first trip.

I grew up going to water parks and, as an adult, I still totally dig them.  So when SeaWorld opened their themed water park in 2008, I totally wanted to check it out.  My Orlando-bred common sense told me to avoid it when it first opened for obvious crowd purposes,...

So @OrlandoInformer told my Theme Park love story on Valentine’s Day.

  For those of you that didn’t know, my wife and I met each other while working together at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.  Orlando Informer ran a story (by way of our friend Casie) about how it all went down… You can read the rest of the story here: http://orlandoinformer.com/page/articles.html/_/blog/central-florida/3-adorable-love-stories-orlando-theme-parks (To...
