Year in Review – 2014

It’s been a few years since I’ve written a year-in-review post, so here ya go! My goal in this post is to sneak in two f-bombs, so let’s see how I do.

The year of unemployment…

I quit my WordPress-related job at the beginning of the year. Maybe I’m old fashioned, but remote work just didn’t work out for me. I’d definitely like to try it again, but for the time-being, I prefer a good ol’ office job.

Asshole Tax Proof Received

I’ve been working very hard over the last few months to make my 2nd book, Asshole Tax, a reality.

The book is non-fiction, and is a semi-autobiographical take on the movie Fight Club.

I recently received the proof (today actually!), so it is only a matter of weeks before this thing is released to everyone.

It is already available for digital download at

Oklahoma Christian University Remembers September 11th

As I was driving to work this morning, I caught a glimpse of Oklahoma Christian University‘s tribute to September 11th, 2001.

Apparently, this tribute is held twice a year: on the anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing and the anniversary of September 11th.

My sister even called me today from Afghanistan and asked how I was remembering September 11th.

Monumentour in Oklahoma City – Zoo Amphitheatre

When I first heard of the Monumentour with headliners Paramore and Fall Out Boy, I jumped at the chance to buy tickets. The earliest I could buy them was in January, and I saw there were Meet and Greet VIP passes available, so I splurged to finally have a chance to meet the members of Paramore.

Thankfully the tour was coming to Oklahoma City, so I snapped up tickets for August 10th at the Zoo Amphitheatre.

A Norwegian Domino's

I snapped this a few days ago. It’s a picture of a Norwegian version of Domino’s pizza (based in the U.S.). They have no affiliation.

The locals tell me the pizza is crap, just like the U.S. version.

My current top post has been about pedophiles. You wouldn’t believe some of the search terms I get. It’s mostly for people looking for pedophile-related items.

As an uncle with three nieces, this disturbs me. I’ve been contemplating redirecting that post to an even harsher post.

I’ve even had people e-mail me lambasting me for the post and calling me a pedophile.

I was stopped by a cop in a local mall. He asked one question, which I thought was rather odd.

“When was the last time you slept?”

My Sister and the Iraq War

As most of you know by now, I’m in Norway working as a WordPress developer at a company called Metronet.

Most of my colleagues (who are foreign to the U.S.) are surprised to find that I worked for the Department of Army for six years.

My College Years

My sister attended a college in Phoenix called Grand Canyon University.

I'm Too Young

I was having a Skype conversation with one of my nieces yesterday. As a preface, let’s say she’s very young. Like seven young.

She started by making smalltalk, “Do you have a girlfriend?”

“No.” I responded. “Do you have a girlfriend?”

She laughed. “I’m too young.”

“Too young for what?” I asked.

She responded candidly, “I’m too young to be gay.”

Ah, the things kids will say.

Twenty Twelve – A Year in Review

Twenty twelve was a very tumultuous and emotional year for me. I moved to Norway about this time last year. I left my family, friends, my cat, and my awesome apartment behind for a new life in Europe.

Moving here could have easily have been one of my many, many mistakes. And I’ll admit, when I first got to Oslo in January, I felt like I made a big one.
