Only a four workout week for me, but at least this time, it was by choice.  I was feeling sore enough on Monday and Tuesday that I decided to lighten my load, and it ended up being a fortuitous decision, since it opened the door for getting started on my new hobby of pa...

You might recall that, at the start of this month, I'd written this post about my first experiences with miniature painting.  After some research, it turned out that it wouldn't be so prohibitively expensive of a hobby as I'd first thought.  Well, let me step back and c...

Ah, yes, this quaint little game that Black Isle outsourced to some upstart Canadian developer called Bioware.  While it's often o...

I'm probably sounding like a broken record at this point, with respect to being atypically busy of late, but it's true.  That having been said, there's no need to keep repeating it, so I'll try to stop doing that.  Instead, let me say that I'm having a blast with doing...

Described simply, Mistborn was basically the original Star Wars trilogy rolled up into one single book.  Vin was Luke Skywalker, Kelsier was Obi Wan Kenobi, and the Lord Ruler was Palpatine.  Obviously, a lot...

Apparently, Brandon Sanderson is a pretty big deal in the fantasy/sci-fi genre these days.  Personally, I'd never heard of him until I saw that he was selected to finish the Wheel of Time series after Robert...

Another week of being silly busy, so it was almost another week of only four workouts, if it wasn't for an impromptu decision to just go for a run on Thursday.  That having been said, my most notable achievement was on the side from my workouts.  I was just toying aroun...
